Humans, Aliens, and the End of the World
Mod used- Mod 33
Scenario- 1938 (so that all of the nations are somewhat, but not very advanced)
Nation: Britain, so that I can easily build up a large alliance from the (relative) safety of my island.
Cheats- Have been used to set everything up, I used Alien attack 125, loaded up as the Aliens, used F12 freedom to make them National Socialist, then declared war on everyone. Then I just loaded up as Britain.
I will try not to use cheats until the situation becomes hopeless, which might not take long actually.
House rules- I will not take offensive action until the end of January 1939, to ensure that the aliens get a good foothold, I will not propose an alliance to anyone else until the end of December 1938, I can, however, accept alliance offers.
One thing before we begin, I'm not an expert at HOI2, I pretty much expect to loose, but it will be in style
September,1, 1938. A day that would change the world. Aliens had landed in Narvik, at first, most people thought that this was a spoof, much like the Radio broadcast of HG Well's War of the Worlds a few years ago, however, this time it was real.
Within hours, the government of Norway sent pleas of assistance out to the League of Nations
If the League of Nations had responded in force immediately, maybe there might have been a chance. It was not to be though, just as they had turned a blind eye to the expansion of Germany, Italy, and Japan, the League choose to wait and see how the situation with the aliens unfolded.
Some nations though, weren't as cautious.
Adolf Hitler of Nazi Germany immediately took advantage of the situation and spread it's influence across Europe, creating the 'Axis of Resistance' or Axis for short.
The first members were Germany, Romania, and Bulgaria, although soon later, Yugoslavia joined, over a month later, Greece entered. The Axis would expand as the Aliens became a greater threat.
Perhaps fearing the recent German expansion, Poland sought the protection of Britain and France, who after much deliberation, accepted Poland's offer of an alliance.
After the initial flurry of activity, everything surprisingly went back to relatively normal, in fact, the Sino- Japanese war continued in full force, even though the Spanish civil War concluded, it had nothing to do with the arrival of the Aliens.
The lack of action was due to the very slow expansion of the Alien forces, this was later attributed to bad weather, poor infrastructure, and the time it took for the Aliens to organize after landing.
By November, the British thought that it was sufficiently safe to send a carrier task force to observe the alien invaders, what the found startled them.
They had no way of telling what the aliens were doing, their technology was so advanced, that they had successfully concealed all information of their numbers. Even worse, the Aliens had developed a fleet, the British quickly withdrew upon it's arrival, not wanting to risk combating such a mysterious enemy yet.
Notice that at the same time, Iraq joined the Axis of Resistance
However, much larger shocks were about to come, shattering any illusions about the capabilities of these invaders forever.
