In 2032 mankind fell in a gruesome war that it could not win. It was some kind of Psychic virus that spread through the mind of people like wildfire. The symptoms of this psychic virus were strikingly similar to zombies from all those horror movies in the past. At first people thought they could fight and survive like in those movies but that idea was shattered a short time later. The hordes seemed to develop a rudimentary hive mind and the infected began grow more intelligent. As if that were not bad enough powerful mutated variants of them began to arise, cities fell and still mankind defiantly stood strong. Yet that resolve faltered when the psychic virus mutated again allowing it to spread to animals.

Mankind fled underground hiding in giant underground bunkers which became infected and began to fall one by one, many becoming infection super-centers holding billions of infected. It wasn’t until nearly ten years later when the Anti-Psyche fields were designed that the cities became safe fortresses for the most part. Once safe research could begin and Eventually Studies came out indicating that the psychic virus they had named Dread, had grown into a sentient hivemind, and its intelligence was growing at a phenomenal rate. The next century would see mankind’s technology grow and develop with 3-d printing advancing to the point where digital designs could be directly printed into life Via atomic reconstruction technologies. However as Dread researchers began to report the infected had began to utilize the older technologies left on the surface the idea that we could wait out this infection began to fade and a cry from the people to reclaim their home world began to spread.

finally 150 years after the Dread forced mankind into a hole the hope of something that could fight the infected has been realized in the form of the Dreadful, Human soldiers who were infected with a modified version of the dread virus. The result of this is human super soldiers, who are immune to the infection turning them into zombies, possess superhuman psychic abilities, And can sense the presence of the psychic virus. Luckily for mankind the existence of the anti psyche fields means that within the underground complexes these psychics are no different than any other human, but once they leave their cities surface facility they gain the abilities that earned them the title of Dreadful.

Sadly the dreadful from Bunker City A-15 now have a notably terrible task to fulfill. The dread researchers have calculated the Dreads mutation and development and have come to the conclusion that their rate of development actually is greater than humanity and that with their rate of development they will surpass human intellectual capacity in only three more years. Afterwards it will only be a matter of time before they take the remaining bunkers or humanity and eventually take to the stars. As a last ditch effort to prevent this from occurring Undercity A-15 has put together an elite unit of Dreadful Soldiers. These soldiers are each given a thermonuclear weapon and are tasked with going to the largest population center nearby and detonating the bombs in a pattern that will maximize the number of infected destroyed…all in an effort to see if its possible to lower the Dreads overall hivemind intelligence by removing a large number of infected in one fell swoop.

Sadly the infected have not been sitting idle. Using the advanced technologies of the 2030’s the infected have been grafting weapons onto themselves, attaching robotic limbs to replace missing ones. Whats Worse is that they seem to be focusing on weapons and technologies of wars indicating their knowledge of the coming conflict. Worse still a large amount of the infected seem to be funneling towards the Desired target the once great city called new york. Are the infected aware of the plan to cripple them? Will humanity rise up in time to prevent their inevitable extinction? Only you can answer this question…for you are the dreadful soldiers who will make either answer a possibility.​

The Dreadful soldier

Dreadful soldiers are all given a serum that makes their bodies temporarily immune to the Anti psyche field. This allows the psychic virus of the dread to infect their body. Also included in the serum is several chemicals which cripple the Psychic virus vectors of mutation effectively trapping the virus in the mind and cutting off the minds connection to the body. After this a massive series of Injections and implants are given to the subject while they are paralyzed from the virus…due to the chemicals which halt the viral mutation no sedatives or Anesthetics will be administered due to them simply not working. Finally an electrical impulse is added directly to the brain destroying the virus but leaving the neural changes and new pathways intact. The new neural pathways are then linked to the augmentations and the soldier is awakened. These new neural pathways being occupied by connections to the new grafts and augmentations seem to completely fill the misunderstood section of the brain that the virus uses as a vector into the body which prevents future infections.

-Uniform Abilities-
These are the abilities possessed by all Dreadful soldiers.

Superhuman strength 800%- Immediately fhe most apparant change is the change to muscles, which directly amplifies the physical strength of the subject by eight times what their previous physical might was. This is a bit hard to measure if not measured before and after the process as a normal non athletic person could actually get that 8x boost and still have strength lower than a bodybuilder. However that same body builder would get an 8x multiplier and become a true powerhouse. In either case even the weakest of people will become far stronger than the average person.

Superhuman Speed 600%- Like with strength the speed modifier while immediately noticeable is different for each individual. A slow man who could run at only 4 mph would be boosted to a fairly impressive 24mph which is notable but is still below someone like Husain bolt. Meanwhile an athlete capable of hitting 20mph would get boosted to around 120mph making them shatter every single running record in history and even beat out some cars and trucks.

Durability 600%- Durability is a bit harder to measure than any other stat but fluctuates alot less than strength and Speed. You cant really train your skin to be more resistant to fire or impacts, at least not very well. That said the amount of pressure required to break your skill is six times what it was before, the amount of impact needed to send vibrations through your skull in quantity enough to render you unconscious is likewise multiplied. This can allow people to actually withstand sledgehammer blows without loosing consciousness and even going 15 rounds with a boxer like mike tyson would likely not do very much to them besides some bruising.

*Regeneration 500%- If your a Dreadful soldier gone are the days of long recoveries. Bruises and small cuts will heal overnight, even deep lacerations and stab wounds can be healed completely in only three days to a week. However most impressive would have to be their bone recovery. Broken bones can be fully healed in as little as a week or two and the healed section of the bone will be much harder to break a second time. Another useful sode effect of this is greatly enhanced resistances to diseases, poisons, toxins, venoms, chemicals, and unfortunately Medication and things like morphine.

Reflexes 400%- Like strength and speed this stat is one that fluctuates, the fastest of human reflexes cam react to things as fast as .25 seconds… however the Dreadful soldiers are scarily able to react to things in as little as .015 seconds putting their reaction time on par with things like a Gnat or a pistol shrimp. While this may not sound impressive with their enhanced speed and intellect they are actually able to dodge bullets pretty consistently, and on the high end it can become almost impossible for a normal human to land a shot on them.

*Senses 200%- Sight, Smell, Taste, Touch, And hearing. All five of these senses are doubled as soon as the dreadful process is completed. However unlike the other stats these are brought to their peak before hand with countless therapies, medicines, and training. The result is humans capable of hearing whispers in another room on a whole other floor of a building, sight that rivals 20/20 vision, the ability to smell and identify pheromones in people, the ability to taste subtle flavors in the air, or even feel slight changes in air pressure. Finally it adds a sixth sense allowing them to detect when someone infected by the Dread are within 100 meters of them.

*Intelligence 200%- while actually calling it intelligence may be a bit of a stretch its undeniable the intellectual advantages a dreadful soldier has. They are able to memorize things far faster and more accurately than a normal human, their enhanced reflexes and thought processes seem to make the world around them move a quarter as fast as for a normal person granting them more time to make decisions and making even the most impulsive decisions Seem well thought out by comparison. It is also undeniable that their general ability to think has been boosted and for that very reason the opinions of Dreadful soldiers tend to hold a lot of weight with the general public.

(Abilities marked with * means that they do not go away while within a Anti-Psyche field)

The Special powers

All Dreadful soldiers possess unique psychic abilities that while limited in their capacity are very potent and arguably are the trademarks of the dread soldiers. Most are known by their special power rather than things like rank or name. However it is hard to quantify and properly list these abilities as they differ from person to person. To date only a few abilities have been thought of as impossible.

(You can come up with whatever power you want as your special but i reserve the right to decline an ability and/or ask for minor changes to make the power fit the world. Bear in mind these powers are all Psychic in nature and likely wont be your typical superpowers like strength, speed, Durability, or Wolverine class regeneration.)
