The Wasteland. Its nothing more than the shattered ruins of Earth. Nothing more than the Scorched deserts and the Frozen plains, nothing is how it shoul be. But then again, How should it be? Nobody knows, nor do they care anymore. The point of existence, is nothing more than to outlive the other guy. Nuclear winter has changed life. However nuclear winter is only one on the list of problems. Natural disaster, such as te erruption of Veuvius, constantly pouring out volcanic sludge. It has drained other areas beneath the surface. Many areas have collapsed into the empty Earth. Life is only a label for the period between creation and destruction. So much is wrong with the earth, It doesnt matter what happens. The weak are preyed upon, and the strong prey upon them.
Then, there are the Cladshells, small bumps of humanity on the scarred planet. Cities, Cities encased in metallic shells, protected from the wasteland, from reality. These cities are protected from nuclear radiation as well as much of the natural disasters. However they arent protected from pollution and crime. The inhabitants are practicaly political servants. They are uncaring of the outside world. As well as no outsiders may enter the cities. And those traveling from city to city must leave only at certain times. When the radiation levels drop to safe levels caravans can be seen leaving the cities, bound to other cities. They must be wary not to linger outside of the Cladshells however because they may be labeled as inproper to enter again. Also they must be wary of bandits and pirates upon the wasteland.
The technology of the wasteland is simple equipment salvaged or created with no professional expertise. Some equipment is very much advanced, such as the railguns used by the snipers in Merthoks militia. Many pirates use airship, like zeppelins to move from place to place. Many caravans use huge armored trucks to power through the wasteland. Technology is nothing more than a label for what mankind can create. It is as varied as the creators.
Magic and other oddities may be used, As the radiation, not to mention the exposure to aliens and other things (this takes place after everything else in the rp section currently.) Most certainly will have produced an interesting blend of races and powers. I would prefer if everyone started out with two characters, (a Wasteland character, And a Cladshell character). This Rp isnt focused on one area, more the entire earth, so character are guaranteed to be spread out.
