Caliber Official Public Announcement
NSArmslab.com/NSAGames.com would like to announce a new Half-Life 2 modification, Caliber. Caliber is a revolutionary team-oriented mod based on Valve's much heralded Source engine technology. Caliber is a genre-transcending creation incorporating the best aspects of first person shooters, real time strategy and role playing games. The talent behind Caliber is a diverse group of professionals with years of experience in the gaming community/customization scene. The goal of the Caliber team is to create a high quality, visually stunning, revolutionary, and most importantly, a fun modification.
The world of Caliber takes place in the 21st century; a world inspired by anime like Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell, Black Magic M66, Orion, Akira, and films like Bladerunner, Interview with a Vampire, Blade 2 and from collections of work like Creature Core and Intron Depot. This is a world of three distinct factions that are engaged in a war of revenge, survival, and power. House Vamin, the first faction, is a high tech vampire race who relies on heavy armor and powerful weapons to destroy their enemies. Due to their superior negotiation skills, House Vamin has created treaties with the most powerful and advanced sectors of human society to aid in their quest of develop their high tech equipment. The second faction, Domus Absentis is also a vampire race, but instead of forming a pact with their hated enemies, humanity, the Absentis have consequently stuck to the shadows and developed weapons of a more... biological nature. Little is known about the final faction, a group known as "The Order." It is believed that The Order has very close ties to the Vatican; and that it hunts down all enemies of God. The Vatican has long considered vampires God's most hated earthly enemy.
