Apocalyptica 2012 Approved by LadyPSerenity
Backstory: Starting from the begining of the year 2012, the world we know has vanished. A strange virus has swept across the world, spreading death and terror everywhere it went. It is originally estimated that out of the 7 billion people on Earth, only 15 million survive.
But this is the least of the concerns. Global Tempratures have dropped as the Atlantic cycle stops due to melting Ice caps. While such a thing has happened in the past, it was due to natural causes rather than man made, and thus the change in the Earth's cycle brings a drastic climate change. The Southern hemisphere becomes drier and the winters longer. In the North, average yearly tempratures drop by 30 degrees, slowly turning the north into a frozen wasteland. Hundreds of thousands of people die.
Nature however has one last cruel strike against humanity. Massive Solar winds strike the Earth, disabling nearly all modern technology. With most of the survivors having become dependant on technology to survive the new climate, this causes even more deaths as many either lose hope or sucumb to the cruelties of this new world. Historians would later estimate that only 30 thousand people, maybe less, were left on the earth.
It is now the year 2025. 13 years have passed since the world we know was destroyed. Will Humanity rise up from the disaster, or will the human race finally be counted among the extinct?
The answer lies in the hands of a small group, who are begining to set camp near a large river....
The three types of people are....
Settlers: people who believe that cooperation is the way forward, it is their group that sets up near the river
Drifters: people who travell independantly, finding supplies as they go.
Raiders: these people attack and steal from drifters and settlers to survive, dishonerable but cunning.
