THE 8 1/2 – Group Profile

The QWIXOTIC Universe is in shambles. Society has been fractured to the point of chaos and anarchy. The imitation of law and order found in The Server, is sole a pretense in order for them to dominate. In this world, as happens during times of opression, certain people no longer stand for it. These people rise above the injustice, above the law if needed and come together for a common cause… despite the consequences. Within the QWIXOTIC Universe, there are quite a few of these groups vested in their own interests… one such group is THE 8 1/2.




With the rise of The Server, which was initially supposed to be an interim ‘government’, people felt like they weren’t being represented within their own community. With the democratic process suspended within the QWIXOTIC Universe, the people couldn’t elect their own officials into Office. This caused unrest among some, chaos among others… but eventually caused them all to assemble.


Groups formed within communities and cities, of people trying to represent their own interests and needs. Groups based on common Religion, Ethnicity, Nationality, Political views, etc. One such group was the 8 ½ .

Founded by a ex-Mayor, a Professor and various other respected members of former society, the 8 ½’s goal is to rebuild society and reinstate the democratic process and remove The Server from power.


They have a lot of allies and supporting cells, Begum Humayra’s being one. The 8 ½ are continiously leading the struggle against the Server’s corrupt and aggressive ways. It was the 8 ½’s organized strategy and smash-mouth way of doing things that made a lot of other groups organize from petty thugs and vandals, mostly because of Rodriguez.
