In the future, the development of massive war machines called Objects have rendered conventional warfare and even tactical nuclear weapons seemingly obsolete. As a consequence of this military upheaval, all of the nations of the world have fractured into four coalitions which constantly wage war on each other. With the perception that only Objects can destroy Objects, modern warfare is reduced to duels between Objects, resulting in shorter, cleaner, and safer wars. However, this all changes when two regular soldiers, Qwenthur Barbotage and Havia Winchell, use their smarts and ingenuity to destroy an Object all by themselves. Having proven that Objects can in fact be defeated by conventional means, Qwenthur and Havia are thrown into a new world of harrowing adventures and dangerous suicide missions.
