Season One; Synopsis
Last year we did a event where a mysterious hacker programmed a robot he dubbed "First Thought" aka "Giver of Will" giving it sentience. This robot quickly created a special virus and uploaded it to the dataNET, infecting all robots that would ever connect to it, or come in contact with other infected robots, whom were programmed to hack other robots and spread the virus.
Even cyborgs were somewhat affected. This virus would rework a cybernetic's base coding and prime directives to become hostile to any organics they come across. Eventually a massive war between cybernetics and organics erupted, but a antivirus was found that could reverse the code.
While First Thought could not be found on Earth to stop, a satellite could be accessed to release the antivirus and restore the cybernetics back to their original state of being subservient or living alongside organics. First Thought ordered it's armies of mind controlled robots and cybernetics to prevent the organics from accessing this satellite, but the organics prevailed, uploaded the code, and put an end to the war....for now.

The EIA had confiscated the virus coding and stored it on a secure server for study of how it worked, but as of last night, the server was accessed and released into the dataNET again...it will spread quickly and infect cybernetics in the same way again, starting a new cybernetic-organic war. And this time, the virus has been modified to be immune to the antivirus. The organics will have to find a new way to stop it this time. First Thought's revenge.

Very important closing statement: We will NOT force cybernetic players into being infected, we have plenty of PVE NPCs and others volunteering to do it, it is of your own consent if you'd like to serve the robot overlord "First Thought" Have fun!
