It's the 22nd century. 2113 to be specific. Although most of the radiation is long gone, mutated creatures still roam the world, every known country in the world has fallen, and great cities have become mere ruins. Nobody is sure what happened. It could've been the result of excessive pollution. Or the aftermath of a nuclear war. Maybe the ozone layer broke down too much and UV rays caused this. What had the once great human race brought upon themselves? And for what reason would they have done this? Although nobody is sure, everyone refers to the devastating event as the Light. The Light that, in a matter of seconds, is rumoured to have killed millions, even billions of people in a short time. Nothing is known about this theoretical, unconfirmed event. The story takes place in what once was a great, powerful nation known as the United States of America, and strictly within its borders. This is because Canada is almost completely submerged in water, while Mexico is complete desert and has heavily mutated creatures, making the neighboring lands inhospitable. But as usual, as they have done countlessly through devastating events throughout history, Humanity prevails. Even though most hope seems lost, civilization is starting to re-appear, to grow, within these wastelands. (In the story there will be 6 factions. At the start you will only be able to control one city, but as the roleplay progresses you may gain more land, city by city, state by state. The time will come when these 6 nations make contact, which could go either way. Will you stay neutral? Maybe you'll be trading partners, or a military alliance. If none of this suits you, go and declare war. What happens in the end will ultimately depend on your actions and the decisions of others.) No space left.
