    I'm assuming you want them in Jerusalem.

    Just as an aside, the aliens will receive some extra reinforcements in some special pre-determined places first turn otherwise the aliens would get quickly repelled. Sorry if this wasn't clear.

    Let's send some controllers to Rio De Janeiro. Maybe the aliens will turn the giant Jesus into a robot or something.

    Um, this is really embarrassing, I just realised I uploaded the wrong map. I've uploaded the actual map, which was helped by many different people in the chat (primarily Civ'ed) and uses the far sexier TACOS colour scheme. There should be no real changes to the map, except removing a couple of non-existent countries that were mistakenly included. Sorry about that. :blush:

    God is dead and the aliens killed him ~Unknown, attributed to an Israeli soldier during the downfall of Jerusalem
    The Miracle of Earth?

    Humankind has found it is not alone in the universe, but instead of friendship they find nothing but war. Scientists and military tacticians were initially worried that we would be overwhelmed in a matter of days, if not hours, but this has not occurred. While large sections of the globe are under the yoke of the Controllers, the resistance from the surviving countries has been strong. This is especially surprising as many of our most powerful weapons, such as nuclear warheads, have been disabled by the Controllers. From discussions with alien defectors and captives, they have identified two main reasons why Earth has managed to fend off the Controllers so well.

    The first reason is the fact that the Controllers are here to capture as many human slaves as possible as opposed to war of extermination as once thought. Battle-thralls loyal to the Controllers are primarily armed with non-lethal weaponry, while this weaponry is far more advanced than Earth’s non-lethal weaponry and can disable most humans in one shot, this has made conventional warfare more difficult for the Controllers. They seem reluctant to use artillery barrages or anything else that could cause widespread human casualties unless absolutely necessary.

    The second reason is that, according to defecting and captured aliens, the Controllers recently erupted into a massive intergalactic civil war. The exact details are sketchy, all that is known is that the war is devastating enough that knowledge of it is widespread even among the Battle-Thralls of the Controllers. While the Controllers have not yet begun fighting with each other on Earth, the faction supporting the invasion has had to draw resources away from our planet.

    Our effective resistance against the Controllers has been referred to by the defecting aliens as “the Miracle of Earth”. Apparently, we have inspired widespread resistance against the Controllers’ authority on a multitude of worlds. This has inspired the people of Earth, no longer are we a doomed people fighting against the inevitable. We have a real chance at regaining our independence and securing independence for others. But the fight is a long way from over…
    Asia

    At 12am January 2016, Japanese local time, the first alien invaders were spotted. The aliens landed in Tokyo, Keihanshin (the Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe region) and Nagoya. The celebrating Japanese officials and JSDF officers were surprised by the attack and, due to overwhelming alien numbers, the Japanese mainland was completely overrun. The Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force, which was largely untouched, have fortified the southern islands and have bombed the mainland to weaken the Controllers. A liberation of the mainland seems unlikely to occur anytime soon as Japan has become somewhat of a stronghold for the Controller forces.

    [causalities: 316 MP Controllers, 290 MP Japan]

    The Controllers seemed to place a high priority on securing the People’s Republic of China as they placed more armies in the region than in any other country. Controller armies crashed into Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Taijin, Shenzhen and Chengdu. The People’s Liberation Army fought hard to secure the major cities, however due to the dispersion of the Controller forces and the overwhelming numbers they were ultimately defeated. The People’s Republic has only managed to hold onto three provinces, Qinghai and the two notoriously difficult to govern autonomous regions of Tibet and Xingjian. A provisional government has been set up by surviving Communist Party officials in the temporary capital of Xining. While there were rumours of Tibet or Xingjian trying to revolt against the weakened government, fear of the Controllers have kept them in line for the most part.

    [causalities: 717 MP Controllers, 779 MP People’s Republic of China]

    A group of battle-thralls landed in Seoul, however the aliens were obviously not aware of the difficult political situation of the peninsular. Thanks to already in place plans by North and South Korea for an attempted invasion of Seoul they were quickly able to adapt to the alien invasion, causing the woefully unprepared aliens to suffer serious losses. However, even with their unexpected success the two Koreas may face difficulties if the Controllers decide to open another front from China or Japan.

    [causalities: 276 MP Controllers, 132 MP S. Korea, 120 MP N. Korea]

    The Controllers also attacked Ho Chi Mihn City. They quickly overran all of Vietnam, but guerrilla warfare continues in the northernmost regions between the Controllers and forces loyal to the Vietnamese government. Vietnam is now managed by the Controller group based in Beijing.

    [causalities: 167 MP Controllers, 181 MP Vietnam]

    Thailand was overrun by battle-thralls landing in Bangkok, although there is still strong pro-Thailand resistance in the south. They are managed independently of China due to resistance in Laos and Burma.

    [causalities: 146 MP Controllers, 175 MP Thailand]

    Battle-thralls equipped with amphibious vehicles landed in Manilla and quickly overwhelmed the Philippines. The government quickly formally surrendered to the Controllers, however the surviving members of the Philippines Navy defected to Indonesia to continue the fight.

    [causalities: 69 MP Controllers, 100 MP Philippines, 15 MP defects to Indonesia to continue the fight]

    The Controllers attacked Jakarta and managed to seize control of all of Java and the surrounding islands, including West and East Timor. The Indonesian Navy has isolated the Java Controllers and prevented them from attacking the rest of Indonesia. However, cracks have begun to show in their defence, causing great concern in the new provisional government set up in the city of Medan.

    [causalities: 218 MP Controllers, 171 MP Indonesia, 4 MP East Timor]

    Another priority of the Controllers was capturing the Indian subcontinent. Battle-thralls landed in Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. While the Indian army fought hard, everything east of Bangladesh was captured by the Controllers.

    [causalities: 346 MP Controllers, 519 India]

    Speaking of Bangladesh, Dhaka was also attacked by a pod of battle-thralls. They cooperated with the Indian battle-thralls to quickly overwhelm the armies of Bangladesh. The surviving Bangladeshi armies teamed up with the surviving Indian armies to provide a united front against the Controller forces, defending the far eastern regions of India against the Controller onslaught.

    [causalities: 74 MP Controllers, 98 MP Bangladesh, 17 MP Bangladesh defect to India]

    The Controllers also overran Pakistan, with battle-thralls landing in Karachi and Lahore. With support from the Indian battle-thralls, most of Pakistan was overrun. Guerrilla fighting continues in east Pakistan against military and tribal forces, but they are quickly losing ground. With so many battle-thralls dominating the subcontinent, the Indian Controllers have become the most powerful group of Controllers in the entire planet.

    [causalities: 241 MP aliens, 234 MP Pakistan]
    Oceania

    Two groups of Controller forces landed in Australia. The Controller in charge of the Australian invasion, referred to by his Jennu Jimosan thralls as Xnuk'ek Ts’o’om, landed in Uluru and another group landed in the Australian Capital Territory. According to captured Jennu Jimosans, the reason that Uluru was selected as the base for Xnuk’ek Ts’o’om’s forces was due to the reptilian nature of the Jennu Jimosans, which make up the majority of his battle-thrall forces. The forces of Xnuk’ek Ts’o’om have occupied much of the Australian countryside, however they are now losing ground to the Australian forces. It was clear that Xnuk'ek Ts’o’om underestimated the number of soldiers needed to pacify the Australian populace. Intense fighting continues on the New South Wales, Queensland and Northern Territory borders. However, without reinforcements for his force it seems that Xnuk’ek Ts’o’om’s ambition will be foiled.

    [causalities: 121 MP Controllers, 94 MP Australia]

    One of the more puzzling moves in the war was the takeover of the Kerguelen Islands. It is believed that the aliens were thrown off course for unknown reasons. The battle-thralls made the most of their predicament, they converted their vehicles into naval vessels and proceeded to take over most of the small islands in the Indian ocean with minimal resistance.
    Middle East

    A group of battle-thralls attacked Tehran, this allowed them to overrun everything but the most southern parts of Iran. The Iranian government has effectively collapsed, its legacy continued only by the most fervent believers in the Iranian revolutionary cause.

    [causalities: 132 MP Controllers, 182 MP Iran]

    A small splinter cell of the battle-thralls aimed for Iran landed in Bagdad. While they could capture Bagdad and some eastern areas of Iraq with the help of the Iranian group, they were mostly fought off by the heavily militarized Iraqi people. These regions are now governed by the Iranian Controllers, who may reprioritize their approach considering the fierce resistance by the Iraqis.

    [causalities: 61 MP Controllers, 43 MP Iraq]

    A large force of battle-thralls landed in Cairo and quickly overran Egypt. While the Egyptian army continues a guerrilla campaign in the southeast desert, they are outnumbered by the battle-thralls that occupy the fertile areas of the country.

    [causalities: 187 MP Controllers, 226 MP Egypt

    A small force of battle-thralls landed in Jerusalem, obviously not realising the difficult geopolitical situation they were walking into. The Israeli military had the ability to mostly quarantine the Controllers to Jerusalem, however it is believed that the IDF purposely led battle-thralls to Palestinian controlled areas to whittle down both of their enemy’s forces. This move has been criticised as extremely cynical by many governments. It might not pay off for the Israelis, as the Israeli controller cell has been reinforced by the far stronger Egyptian cell to the east.

    [causalities: 81 MP Controllers, 55 MP Israelis]

    A large force of battle-thralls landed in Istanbul, with the intent of taking over Turkey. By pure luck, the Turkish military was already mobilized due to concerns of a possible terrorist attack on new year’s. This allowed Turkey to put up one of the most effective defences against the Controllers, however they were still overwhelmed by the larger Controller forces. Eastern Turkey and Northern Cyprus are still under their control, however they are steadily losing ground against the superior Controller foe.

    [causalities: 229 MP Controllers, 207 Turkey]
    Europe

    The Controller’s invasion of Russia went very poorly. While the battle-thralls that landed in Moscow seized the most populated areas of Russia, they have seriously overextended themselves and lost a large amount of their forces. The Russian government, now based in Omsk, is planning a counteroffensive against Controllers that will likely liberate most of Russia beginning in early February. Short of massive Controller reinforcements, it appears that Russia may be the first country to fully overcome the Controller threat. However, their border with the powerful Chinese cell may prove problematic to their efforts to overcome the Controllers.

    [causalities: 396 MP Controllers, 354 MP Russians]

    France is once again in the centre of a massive world war and they have once again proven their will to resist. A group of battle-thralls landed in France and, after some intense fighting, overwhelmed northern France. However, the fighting spirit of the Fifth French Republic is still strong and the battle for France could go either way. The French government, now ironically based in Vichy, is planning a counteroffensive, although if the French Controllers manage to get any reinforcements this could severely damper the French fighting spirit.

    [causalities: 252 MP Controllers, 250 MP France]

    The United Kingdom was attacked by a large group of battle-thralls in London and two smaller ones in Liverpool and Manchester. This allowed the Controllers to seize control of all of England, despite fierce resistance by the English. The surviving parliamentarians and the royal family have retreated to Edinburgh, cooperating with the local Scottish, Welsh and both Irish governments to reclaim England. While publicly they remain hopeful, they know deep down that they will be unlikely to reclaim the country without outsider help.

    [causalities: 273 MP Controllers, 283 MP UK]

    A group of battle-thralls crashed into Greenland. They have secured the island, after surveying the whole region and discovering that the population density is very low. It is unknown what the Controllers plan to do with this stronghold, but it is unlikely that they will stay there for long.
    Africa

    Africa had a very hard time resisting the Controller attacks and Nigeria was no exception. The battle-thralls landed Lagos and quickly overran the country, with the surviving armies defecting to Niger.

    [causalities: 52 MP Controllers, 114 MP Nigerians, 13 MP Nigerians defect to Niger]

    The Democratic Republic of the Congo was also targeted by the Controllers and was also quickly overrun. The battle-thralls landed in Kinishasa and overran the country. Unlike Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo formally surrendered to the Controllers and disbanded their army as part of their surrender agreement, becoming a collaborationist government with the aliens.

    [causalities: 63 MP Controllers, 75 MP DRC]

    The one country that managed to effectively resist the Controllers in Africa was Kenya. A small splinter of the forces intended for the Democratic Republic of the Congo landed in Mombasa, Kenya. While they managed to seize the eastern half of Kenya, the people of Kenya managed to stop the battle-thralls from attacking their capital, Nairobi. Despite their bravery, the Kenyans are outnumbered and will need the help of their neighbours if they are to survive.

    [causalities: 44 MP Controllers, 42 MP Kenya]
    The Americas

    As expected, the United States was targeted heavily by the Controllers. Battle-thralls landed in New York, L.A, Chicago, Texas, Washington D.C and Atlanta, under the control of the Controller known as High Executioner Xnuk'hu Has'usk. The Americans fought hard, but their armed forces were soon exhausted fighting a numerically superior foe. The United States has lost the south and the east coast and much of the west coast. While their armed forces fight on and various militia groups have popped up in the occupied areas, none of them really hold a candle to the Controllers’ forces. Even some of the less threatening aliens, such as blobs that appear to be made out of crude oil, were extremely effective in disabling the United States' military. It will take a massive nationalist uprising or Controllers will soon dominate all of North America.

    [causalities: 677 MP Controllers, 757 MP USA]

    A group of battle-thralls also crashed into Mexico City and overran Mexico with the assistance of the battle-thralls stateside. They have occupied all but the northernmost states of Mexico, where the remnants of the Mexican military have formed a truce with the cartels to form a united front against the Controllers. They are surrounded by all sides and hopelessly outnumbered, Mexico might not have long to live.

    [causalities: 120 MP Controllers, 122 MP Mexico]

    Battle-thralls attacked Bogota, Columbia and quickly overran the country. With the collapse of the civilian government, the remnants of the National Army of Colombia defected to Brazil to ensure that they could continue the fight against the Controllers.

    [causalities: 89 MP aliens, 110 MP Columbia, 23 MP defects to Brazil]

    Brazil had troubles of its own, battle-thralls attacked both Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The Controllers seized most of the Brazilian east coast, even with the defecting South American armies the Brazilians are in a very precarious situation. It is unlikely they’ll be able to hold out against the onslaught for much longer.

    [causalities: 225 MP aliens, 231 MP Brazil]

    The Controllers also attacked Argentina, with battle-thralls landing in Buenos Aires. They soon overran all but the most southernmost portion of Argentina. Much of Argentina is managed from the Controllers’ base in Brazil, soon the whole country may be under the thumb of the Controllers.

    [causalities: 101 MP aliens, 114 MP Argentina]

    While the situation may seem hopeless, the battle for Earth is not yet lost. How will the nations of Earth deal with the catastrophe that has occurred? Will the people of Earth fight against the Controllers, accept their rule? While the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, far off a far greater conflict rages…
    ****************​

    Okay, that was a lot harder than I first thought. I’m going to revise my estimate from “two updates a week” to “one update a week”. There’s only so much I can do without breaking. :p Orders due in 60 hours

    The Controllers efforts in Europe are in a fragile position indeed. This nation known as "France" continues to hold on, and it has many other friends nearby which can lend a hand. We can not allow a continent to become a center of resistance! Raze Frankfurt into the ground!

    Secret location, somewhere in Austria

    The room was packed to the brink, representatives from almost all surviving europeans nations had gathered here, an emergency meeting allow for cooperation against the alien menace.
    "It is clear that none of our nations can survive on their own." one of the italian Generals present started, " while our navies still controll the sea with relative ease, the massive host of aliens in France and Great Britain will sooner or alter overwhelm us.".
    There was nooded and some voices of agreement, as a german general took over " Until now, conventional forces were able to fight the aliens relativly effective.But, soon our conventional forces will be depleted and I have no interest in nuclear carpet bombing our own cities." Again there was agreement and a czech woman took the word " We have to expect more enemy landings on key points, crucial emmebers of goverment have already been evacuated to safe houses and our armies are mobilicing what they can against these threats, but I am afraid that it won't be enough." There was some argueing now, the French and British had understood her words as an excuse to not help them.

    "While some Italian and spanish admiral dream of naval landings in Egypt to reclaim Suez and support the Middle East, we must see that this is useless. We first need to secure Europe, once it is secured we can counter-attack and drive them off our planet." to these words, there was nothing but agreement. "I propouse the formation of a joint task force, financed and supported by all present member states of the European Union. It's task will be to work a rapid-deployment force, to contain any additional alien landing, so that we can concentrate our conventional forces at the front line." Yes, many agreed, this was an idea, one they needed if they wanted to have any chance.

    "We'll have to establish a secured base, from which can send out strike forces to combat the invaders. We'll need to gather tranport planes, helicopters and fighter jets for aerial support and lots of supplys and armored vehicles." a greek General threw in and a german diplomat took over " Yes, multiple bases if possible, to protect all of Europe." Somebody coughed and everybodies eyes were focused on an old swiss general, whow as probably already in his 80s.
    "My goverment has, in secret and to protect its neutrality, build a large military base, inside the Alps, with airfields, supply routes and everything needed, we can provide it for this task force." for a moment there was silence, as everybody present looked at the swiss general in suprise, who only smiled at them satisfied.
    "Ok, we'll have to establish some more bases, but for the moment we all agree on this course of action ?" the spanish prime minister asked and a loud "Aye" filled the room. " Then the establishment of the "Earth Protection Force" is hereby official, we will pool our recourses together to establish this anti-alien task force and to research any alien technologie we can capture.
    "EPF ! EPF !"
