The campaign world is Fantasy/Post Apocalyptic Southeastern United States.
Near Future :: 2055 :: Our Children’s Generation
Civilization and society was really at its peak. Fire arms have been banned in the United States for 12 years. Science has been thriving after cloning of sheep and successful experimentation bringing back some African species from the extinction list. The elimination of our reliance on fossil fuels has brought the global temperature back down. It was a fantastic time to be alive.
After 2 years of global peace however, whole portions of the human populace began vanishing around the world. News reports were scarce of details. The omnipresent terror dropped the global population by 80 percent. The lowest it had been since the year 1804, just about 1 billion. Scientists believed it was a unique bacteria that would consume human flesh and bone, leaving no trace. The radical believed it was the prophesied rapture.
Your story will start a few years after that in the Okefenokee Swamp which is in South Georgia, near the border of Florida. You are living in a make shift bunker in an empty gas reservoir underneath an abandoned gas station.
The bunker is on the western border of the Okefenokee swamp about a days walk to the town of Fargo. Fargo was the only way in or out of the swamp. You remember it having a bar, a plantation estate which was renovated into a hotel, and a family owned country store attached to a restaurant.
You find yourselves feeling tired and irritable. You are down to just 2 days rations. You haven’t opened the top hatch except to dump the waste bucket and cycle air, for months.
Your character should have a background story telling how they got to gas station. This has been your main residence for at least 6 months. Enough time that everyone will be familiar with each others recent history.
In your Story, I will choose 2 or 3 instances where fate molded you. This should not effect your story creation, and will be discovered on the first session.
Characters will start at level 1 and will be accelerated to level 3 after the first milestone.
