For millions of years, the Autobots and Decepticons have been at war.

This war has ravaged their home planet, Cybertron, and caused them to spread out to other inhabited worlds. They have assumed the disguises of local vehicles in order to accomplish their goals: The Decepticons exploit those worlds’ resources to expand their empire; the Autobots attempt to contain the Decepticons’ spread and halt their tyranny.

All this, of course, is familiar. There are even Autobots and Decepticons on Earth, hidden in plain sight from an unsuspecting human populace. But the unfamiliar part is the roster of Autobots who are tasked with containing the Decepticon menace. The Autobots are player-created characters, under-staffed and outnumbered on a planet deemed strategically unimportant to the overall war.

Earth’s importance is about to change. And Earth’s Autobots are in over their heads.
