Red Alert: Tiberium Wars by RvBOMally Red Alert: Tiberium Wars by RvBOMally
A crossover of sorts between the Red Alert and Tiberium universes. This assumes Allied victories in both Red Alert 3 and Uprising, the Brotherhood of Nod existing as a covert organization since at least TTL's WWII, and Red Alert cryotech being very useful in containing Tiberium infestations.

World War III, one of the shortest world wars in human history, also established Allied dominance over the planet. While the Allied occupation of the Soviet Union ended in a revolt which successfully convinced Allied leaders to retreat, and the FutureTech fiasco caused quite a few Allied politicians to resign, there was no question that the Allies had won.

World War III, one of the shortest world wars in human history, also established Allied dominance over the planet. While the Allied occupation of the Soviet Union ended in a revolt which successfully convinced Allied leaders to retreat, and the FutureTech fiasco caused quite a few Allied politicians to resign, there was no question that the Allies had won.

However, Allied dominance over the world would be challenged in 1995, when a meteorite containing a strange alien mineral landed near the Tiber River. Gaining the moniker Tiberium, the mineral spread throughout the world, especially taking root in warmer areas. Tiberium was both good and bad for the world. On the one hand, Tiberium absorbed expensive minerals from the soil and formed easy to harvest crystals, allowing even the poorest countries and organizations to become rich. On the other, Tiberium had deleterious effects on human biological systems, especially DNA.

The world’s powers scrambled to take advantage of the new possibilities of Tiberium technology. FutureTech took advantage of Tiberium in order to recoup its losses after the post-WWIII scandal, and moved to secure Tiberium-rich areas all over the world. However, they had competition: the Brotherhood of Nod. A pseudo-religious organization, the Brotherhood of Nod originated from Soviet attempts to spread communism throughout the Third World. For most of its existence, Nod operated in secret and through other movements. While Nod, and its leader, Kane, preached a message of opposing the West and bringing more equality through the world, they also took particular focus on Tiberium. Tiberium, and the vast wealth it gave to Third World nations, would be the key to overthrowing the Allies’ global order.

The First Tiberium War began in 1999, when Tiberium infestations from the disastrous Chernobyl disaster of 1997 destroyed the Soviet Union. Various generals fought each other for power, while others attacked neighboring Europe and Japan. Both FutureTech and the Brotherhood backed various groups vying for control of the former Soviet Union. It was only a matter of time before the war spread throughout the world, when many world governments affiliated with Nod declared war on the Allies.

The war would rage until 2002, seeing fighting primarily in Africa and the former Soviet Union. The war ended only when the Allies used orbital bombardment against the main Nod “temple” in Sarajevo, apparently killing Kane and his top commanders. In response to the ease by which Nod shook the world, the Allies formed the Global Defense Initiative, which included historically anti-Allied powers such as Japan and some of the former Soviet Union. The formation of GDI was an admission by the Allies that the world had changed, and that non-state actors such as Nod were the primary threat. Naturally, FutureTech was a dominant player in GDI, as it had effective control over the government of the European Union.

As Tiberium continued to spread throughout the world, it was regarded as a curse. Heavily infested areas were hostile to all Earth-based life, and the mutations rampant throughout infested areas created social strife. Mutated humans, calling themselves the Forgotten, were often persecuted and shunned by non-infected humans. However, their mutations did allow them to survive in the most heavily infested areas. The environment changed, and some areas were ravaged by ion storms and life mutated by Tiberium, GDI moved against the spread of Tiberium by using FutureTech cryotechnology and Japanese harmonic resonance technology. While this saved large areas of Europe, North America and Japan, most of the world could not afford this technology, and Tiberium spread.

The Second Tiberium War began in 2030, when Kane reemerged, seemingly from the dead. Revitalizing the Brotherhood and aligning himself with the Soviet Union in Siberia, Kane declared another war against GDI for two goals. First, Kane wanted to spread Tiberium throughout the world, for reasons Kane kept largely to himself. Secondly, Kane wanted the Tacitus, an ancient alien artifact found by FutureTech officials in Bolivia. The Tacitus contained information about Tiberium which would allow humanity to more ably manipulate it with their technology. FutureTech wished to keep the Tacitus to themselves, although they were generally unsuccessful in translating it.

The Second Tiberium War was not as long as the first, being ended quickly when GDI destroyed Nod’s main base of operations in Egypt, but it was nonetheless devastating. Fighting throughout the Second Tiberium War further accelerated the damage to human civilization. Hundreds of settlements were destroyed, countless millions killed and displaced. Tiberium-based weapons were used by both sides, accelerating Tiberium’s spread around the world. The Tacitus switched hands between GDI and Nod several times, giving both sides even more knowledge to create more effective Tiberium-based technology. Fighting continued even after the Nod surrender, as the Nod AI, CABAL, refused to surrender its forces to GDI and continued to fight for the Tacitus. Nod fractured, and more and more countries came into the orbit of GDI.

In truth, Kane had not been killed by GDI forces, as his body was recovered by CABAL and later resuscitated by the AI. After merging with CABAL, Kane reawakened to reunify the various Nod splinter groups, to prepare for yet another engagement with GDI. As Kane strengthened Nod, GDI became more focused on containing Tiberium infestations, believing that Nod would never again be a threat. In the “yellow zones,” areas abandoned by GDI because of social unrest and Tiberium infestation, Nod operated with near-impunity, gathering a massive following.

In 2047, Kane reemerged from hiding and struck against GDI, beginning the Third Tiberium War. With GDI caught off-guard, Nod was able to make massive gains, although Nod did not succeed in destroying GDI forces. The war became a bitter stalemate, with any great victory being reversed by an equally great victory for the other side. Finally, GDI sought to end the Third Tiberium War as they ended the first: by using their ion cannon to destroy the Nod Temple Prime in Sarajevo. Unfortunately, it turned out that the Temple Prime was a storage area for liquid Tiberium, a highly volatile variant of Tiberium. The ion cannon strike detonated the liquid Tiberium, destroying most of the Mediterranean either through direct explosion or chain reaction from detonating Tiberium in the area.

Contrary to GDI’s belief, this did not end the war, and instead prolonged it. This explosion prompted the Scrin, an extraterrestrial species intent on harvesting Tiberium on Earth. Believing that the Tiberium had wiped out all life on Earth, the Scrin invaded with a measly force. Instead, this invasion force was met by two heavily armed and technologically advanced groups. Having no precedent for such an event, the Scrin invaded anyway, to their detriment. Unbeknownst to most people, this was Kane’s plan all along: to let the Scrin invade so that humanity could loot their technology. Both Nod and GDI forces successfully repelled most of the Scrin, save for those in red zones, where the Scrin were more in their element. The war ended in a stalemate after a failed GDI-Nod attack against Scrin forces in Italy.

By 2050, the world is still licking its wounds. GDI, now effectively a subsidiary of FutureTech, is trying to create large, underground cities in the Arctic and Antarctic for any humans under its protection to live in. The Brotherhood is still united, but its focus is now on reverse-engineering Scrin technology and studying the Tacitus, which had fallen under their possession during the war. The Scrin continue their mining operations and attempt to give the humans no reason to attack them. No attempts have been made by any side for a peace settlement, as their views on Tiberium are irreconcilable. Meanwhile, Tiberium continues to spread, and the Scrin wait for a proper invasion force to cleanse the planet of the warlike natives

Did the United States break up?

Yes, although the US government did approve of it, somewhat. The Tiberium in the center of the country, along with the social strife it brought, made managing the West from DC all but impossible (American military assets were tied up fighting against Nod and other threats). The Pacific Union was formed from elements of the American, Soviet and Canadian governments specifically to better manage the Pacific area.

It's a tad surprising that the Soviets are still around this time around...

Well, they did have better military tech, and it wouldn't be Red Alert without the Soviets.

Though they apparently did a sloppier job at holding back Tiberium when the entire USSR is a Yellow Zone. :noes:

FutureTech and the Japanese hoarded all of the counter-Tiberium tech. The Soviet Union also collapsed, so they couldn't coordinate a united effort.
