Chapter 1: The Fusogen Conflict

Yammies are hardworking, industrious ant-like creatures that inhabit the world of Colonysia. They are fiercely territorial, with squads of Yammies constantly feuding and battling for control of land, food and resources, but it wasn't always like this.

According to legend, all of the Yammies in existence came from one extremely powerful, god-like Yammie named Proyamus, the creator of Colonysia. Growing tired of her solitary existence, Proyamus decided to divide her spirit into several new bodies. Each time she did this, Proyamus became weaker, but the world became fuller. Proyamus continued to create new Yammies until Colonysia was thriving with life, and her power was no more.

The Yammies of the world, all children of the departed Proyamus, lived together in harmony, pooling and sharing everything. For a long time, there was peace and tranquillity on Colonysia.

One fateful afternoon, a group of inquisitive Yammies began exploring a hitherto unknown part of Colonysia. During this expedition, the young explorers stumbled across a glittering cave of crystals. Entering the cavern, the Yammies felt ill at ease. The crystalline walls of the cavern thrummed with a sense of mystery and power. There were muted grunts from the group that they should leave this place and keep its existence a secret from the world.

One of the group, a precocious young Yammie, leaned forward. She wanted a trinket to remember her journey and had become enamoured with the crystals that adorned the walls. The Yammie reached forward to pull a crystal from a nearby rock. To her surprise, the crystal came away from the rock without effort, as if it had been waiting to be picked up for an eternity. The Yammie heard pounding footsteps race toward her, "We shouldn't be here," a voice snarled; it was the Elder Yammie, the group leader. She felt the Elder grab her hand, "Put it down," he bellowed. She tried to follow his command but could not open her hand. It was as if the crystal had somehow adhered to her skin, and she was no longer in control of her body or thoughts. The Elder reached toward the crystal. As his skin brushed across its jagged edges, he heard a loud crack and felt his body tighten as his skin became adhered to the crystal. Light poured out of the glowing crack in the crystal and grew in intensity, consuming the two Yammies until they could no longer be seen by the remaining Yammies in the group, all of whom were paralyzed with fear and confusion. The humming in the cave seemed to grow in volume, with only the intermittent sounds of cracking glass piercing through the chorus of noise. Then, silence. Quiet. Nothing. An absolute absence of sound that was somehow equally as unsettling as the moments that preceded. A member of the group leaned forward, their eyes burning from the intense light of the crystal and gasped. The two Yammies had disappeared, along with the crystal; in their place stood a Yammie the likes of which had never been seen on Colonysia. The solitary Yammie looked at its body in amazement and confusion, then slowly raised its head. "She is me, and I am her. We were two, and now we are one."

As the days passed, fear, curiosity, and speculation spread across the Yammies, and only one explanation emerged for the events that had unfolded in the cavern. This glittering cave of crystals held an unknown power. As inexplicable as it was, this cave was full of crystals that, when touched by two Yammies simultaneously, merged their minds, souls, and bodies into a more powerful being with new abilities.

The discovery of these crystals, known as Fusogen crystals, enabled Yammies to merge together and unlock new abilities and strengths. Colonysia began to fracture into fractions: those who coveted the power of the crystals and those who wished to destroy them.

Amidst the chaos, a new movement was born. A group of Yammies began to explore the true nature of the Fusogen crystals. They believed that by merging themselves, they could not only become more powerful but also access the wisdom and knowledge of their godlike ancestor. Eventually, through the merging of all of Colonysia, they could bring about the return of Proyamus herself.

This heralded a new era in Colonysia: the Fusogen Conflict.
