For decades Disciples of Anu had practiced the exiling, or outcasting, of their members that were too weak to withstand the mutation gifts they acquired.
According to preliminary reports, ninety percent of them would die within a few weeks.
With time, tho, the survivors slowly grouped together forming bandit squads that would roam the world looking for food and resources.

We’ve received an automated emergency transmission from a New Jericho science facility.
The message is composed of the word “Overrun” repeated in a loop.
Tracking down the location of the transmission has revealed some security footage.
Site added to Geoscape: Overrun. Cinematics 2 are played.
It has been confirmed that the transmissions originated from the New Jericho Zayatz research facility. Based on initial reports the entire area has been overrun by the Forsaken.
The exact research conducted at the facility remains unknown, but based on satellite pictures there’s evidence that it’s linked to New Jericho’s new bionics program.
Analysis suggests that at least five New Jericho scientists have managed to survive by barricading themselves in the facility.
In The Nick Of Time. The operation has been a success. Not only did we manage to rescue the scientists, but also managed to gather invaluable research data. All information has been successfully decrypted and available for further research and analysis.
