In 2007, The Gmod servers go to war. From PHWOnline and RS Films comes "War of the Servers", Directed by Robert Stoneman and starring voices from Chris Duggan (PHWRadio DJ), Robert Stoneman (PHWRadio DJ and Slapdash 1 and 2), Richard Biosvert (Slapdash 1 and 2), David Zimmerman (PHW Comic Maker), Nick Bertke, Jordan Brindle and Ben Stoneman. Based on the musical "Jeff Wayne's musical of War of the Worlds" This action/parody adventure follows one player's story to get to his friends before the servers crash.
Robert Stoneman is Steinmann, a player who enjoys G-mod server life, building, creating, and having fun with other player's. Being a part of the PHW community, he has met a lot of friends online playing in Gmod servers from role play to LUA gamed servers. But on one late day on MJ's serious builders only server, the server begins to lag, he finds out it's not just the server he is in... Its everywhere... and the lag spikes are coming from the new players; GMod 9.0.4 Servers... Moments later during the game, Steinmann and the other players notice a mess of contraptions in the middle of the map, when strangely fog appears. Players gather around this mess and what is seen and what arises from that mess...will change the servers forever. Before anyone can react, it removes everything in sight. An ordinary server game has suddenly become the most extraordinary event of gmod - the first strike in a catastrophic mingebag attack on every gmod server.
Steinmann rushes back to his contraption, where later on he meets a server admin (Ben Stoneman) it will embark them on a journey that will take them across the destroyed servers of role-play and general servers all affected by this merciless new enemy, where they become caught in the desperate tide of players fleeing servers.
But no matter where they run, there is no safety, no refuge...only Steinmann's unconquerable will to get to his friends and not let the new players crash him or the servers... Will he make it in time before the servers crash...
