[2.0] As it All Restarted; Just How Much Was Changing and How Was it Changing? [102.1
Cyborz moved, as a patrol, through the LostEstates where large mansion estates still self maintained, secured themselves, despite that those who once dwelt in them were long dead or now distorted. They tried to avoid gunturrets but the cunning popup ones were difficult to keep away from as were well hidden, stationary, ones.
The floating cyborzdrones were forced to shoot blasters, minimissiles and smartbullets at numerous threats that attacked them be they bandits, monsters, rogue robotics or one of many other types.
Formerly high confidence had ebbed away with the increasing toll on alien units and the patrols were getting larger, more powerful, and closer to the homebase. This was a pattern being expressed with other alien invaders such as PlasutonNet, Yayeki, Ziziane and the mysterious Shagrastra.
Puzzling were threats like areas where tech-systems began to go 'wrong' at the outer bounds of and the Cyborz could go no further in that direction. Others had encountered those 'null tech zones', or NTZs. None seemed to know why they were there or how they functioned.
The dull, metallic, cyborzdrones kept patrolling with surfaces no longer shiny because of painful early lessons that showed how much that attracted enemies.
