Though the world was nearly destroyed during World War III, it was saved from a nuclear winter by cutting-edge tech. 100 years later, this eventually gave rise to a new ultimate military technology, the Gauntlet, which fascinated children all over the world. In this new era, all existing military forces would become obsolete, except for the small number of boys and girls who have what it takes to become a Gauntlet Knight…

The young are supposed to be the main characters in their own eras.
But in reality, they’re nothing but game pieces lined up on the board of those who are crafty and more experienced.

Must these boys and girls be forced to kill each other as pieces?
Who are the pieces, and who are the players? And who does the players’ bidding?

What victory conditions does each person have? Is it peace? War? Annihilation?

Is the foretold tragedy a scheme or a delusion, the future or reality?

No. There is no need to resist this tragedy.

The job of a game piece is to dance about within the tragedy’s grasp.
What are the rules of the game, you ask? How hard is it? That’s for us to decide, so it’s none of your concern.

All you people need to do is take pieces and get taken yourselves, entertaining us with the range of your emotions.
Are you listening? You don’t want to misunderstand your position.

You aren’t my opponent. You’re merely a piece that exists for my amusement. In this next game, I won’t give you the privilege of being a player!
