S
everal generations have passed since Doomsday when the Earth was wracked by the Final War. Our forebears told of  the devastation, of the great pillars of ash and flame, of the clouds of manmade pestilence, of the waves of strangely scented death. All the marvels our ancestors had striven to create, their towering edifices of steel, concrete and glass, the lore stored on their webs of computers, were torn asunder, rent and lost. Many died, man and beast alike, and the Earth was tortured and twisted. Many more died during the Years of  Dark Ice that followed.As heat and light returned, those few survivors began to establish themselves anew, communities began to slowly grow again, both to  protect and nurture or to seize and pillage, for both are paths of survival. Nations were gone, survival was paramount, trade was scant. What useful implements of the Before Time that could be safely salvaged were quickly hoarded and cherished, for future generations, for survival, for  protection and predation.The damage and poisoning of the Earth was reflected in the warped  flesh of animal and man. Many were born with hideous mutations to the horror of their parents. Most died, others were cast out, only a few  were nurtured or endured. Over time, the number of mutants has slowly increased, reluctantly accepted in some places, still reviled in others.Fortified settlements are scattered across and beneath the blasted  landscape now, linked by the battered roads our ancestors made. Road  warriors in their armed and armored vehicles guard these places of  civilization, escort the mighty trade rigs that ferry goods and people between those settlements that trade. Raiders assault these in their crude vehicles, steal and slaughter, constantly test the defenses of the towns and homesteads nearby. The weak, the foolish, quickly fall to their ravages.This is a time of hardship, of rebuilding, a time when scavengers  pick at the scraps of the Before Time, a time when might too often  means right. But it is also a time of hope, for Humanity has endured and the Earth begins to very slowly mend. The future will again be  wrought by our hands, for good or ill.
