The World - A Global War (Setting)
« on: April 27, 2017, 03:37:12 PM »
September 11th, 2001 changed much for the world of special operations. Although they had been active for some time, there was sudden high, public demand for their services. But that's not to say that they were inactive to that point. Globally, tier 1 and other special operations and intelligence had long been working and engaging in operations around the world.

The Global War on Terror, though, saw an increased level of cooperation, joint operations, and involvement of all nations.

From the Shadows aims to tell these and other stories from a respectful, authentic angle. We are an open sandbox world, where you can craft your own story as you play. From secret espionage missions to loud, explosive assaults on terrorist compounds. You want to write it, we can likely make it happen.

Our focus is, as stated, the special operations and intelligence communities. That means we do shy away from large scale, open warfare and more on direct action unconventional warfare.

We are set in the real world, with real locations. We do not incorporate any fictitious elements (for example movies like Rambo, Commando, and other "hyper action" movies) and instead focus on authentic realism.
