A heavy storm hung ominously over the capital of Liberterram. Heavy gray clouds blowing in as the day began carrying a bitter chill. But this was no ordinary day. Throughout the previous night a new illness had began to ail the residence of the city. A new sort of plague, spreading like a wildfire through the streets. It was carried by Egyptian soldiers who marching the streets. These Egyptians were no normal soldiers however. They were augmented. Possessed by the very symbiote-based venom plague that they spread. The soldiers themselves produced the pestilent tar like a venomous web which infected it's victims on impact. At first it appeared to be some new strain of the Bubonic Plague, though as it's effects set in on the victim they found themselves vomiting masses of black tar. This substance then took over it's victims violently engulfing, twisting and morphing them into a vague resemblance of the original symbiote. They acted more on their primal instincts, reverting to movement on all fours. The infection itself left those under its effects with enhanced strength and agility.
The city was itself seemed to be infected by the plague. Long strands of the sticky tar ran between buildings, along the streets and over former vehicles and around land marks. A small front of forces fought to hold their ground around the buildings capital. Emergency vehicles and militarized forces fought off their former residents as the infected masses bashed against their barricades. Liberterram was hosting a new plague now.
Egyptian forces patrolled the streets in mass forces. Soldiers herding the infected through the streets, forcing them further into the populous. Similar forces went building to building, hunting down every last hint of humanity in the capital. The forces acted like a virus themselves, driven by only one goal: SPREAD.
