The Indian Summer by mdc01957 The Indian Summer by mdc01957
Here's one more entry into my oft-ignored Edwardian-verse.

Fastforward to 1918, humanity continues to push into alien-afflicted lands, with efforts accelerated by the use of weapons designed specifically to counter the menace. Elsewhere, however, life continues on. Britannia continues to rule the waves as it expands its influence and takes advantage of the various upheavals brought about by the Invasion. Germany, Japan and the Americans have begun making profits out of reverse-engineering whatever shred of alien technology that still works, while the Russians are slowly regaining ground.

But British scouting reports from Antarctica suggest that the threat may be far from over.

The Balkans seem to have gotten pretty fucked. XD Isn't Austria-Hungary gaining anything out of this, considering they've seemingly borne the brunt of the aliens invasion in that region?

The Invasion exhausted just about all their resources. And if you look closely, they did manage to reclaim some land. Though by 1918, they're in the process of "repopulating" some of the decimated land.

Ah, but were they able to salvage any alien technology?

So far, it's down to microwaves, giant heat wave artillery, helicopters and air conditioning. :D

Thanks for that. :D

As for the aliens, they mainly resemble mammalian versions of the Chimera (from the Resistance games). Their weaponry, however, has more of a War of the Worlds feels compared to the series.
