  1. "Two Hunded cycles ago, the heavens descended upon our world in a bath of light, and from this light came the Sky Master. His anger was felt all around the land, and it was he who cleansed the land of the demons of electicity, teaching us how powerless we truly was. The before people are gone now, and many of the tribes have been taken over by the Sky Master's monsters. The residal magics the Sky master left after his declatation of war that day forced changes to happen to some of us, our bodies changed, and quite a few of us have gain magiclal power, the Chorizu rose, but the land saw to separate us and confuse us as the great stone Vulcans caused great destructions of fire and death took upon it’s nightmarical black wings many who were near the mountains of smooth rock. More residal magics spewed down upon us taking even more of our people into the ground and clouds, with only the Sky Master to blame for it." - Excerpt from the Shaman’s teachings circa 2203

    "It is August 12, 1999, my research has shown signs of the sun preparing a massive dispersal of energy. If my predictions are accurate, all technology upon the surface of this world will be rendered useless, and with that eradication our power plants will cause death and chaos on an unimaginable scale. Work has already begun on great underground shelters that will safely carry our people over time to a point where we can rebuild and thrive again, though my calculations have not garnered any fruitful results on a timeframe. Project NOAH is estimated at the time of completion to be able to house up to 40,000 families dotted across the American Continent. I've heard no news about the goings on or preparations of other countries at the moment, and I can only hope that they're ready."
    -Excerpt from the Journal of Dr. Giorgio Starkson 1999/08/12

    "The camera is going haywire.....Well, fix it, we gotta report this, pronto, err, what are you staring at, Jim?”........."What is that?!” ........Roaring sounds in the background mixed with the sounds of flames bursting to life.......... Footsteps frantically running..... Screams of Terror and Cowardice.......“Jim get that camera under control, now!”.............."I can't get the picture to come up, Liam!”........."Screw it! do you still have sound?”......
    “Yeah, but it's iffy”........"Doesn't matter, it’s good enough.....This is Li-".....static
    - Last recorded news tape found in the streets in the aftermath of an attack during the Solar Flare by an unknown creature, circa 2014

    The year is 2493, and the World is in ruins. The surface is a land filled with mutated monsters and forests of Carnivorous snapping flora with minds of their own. During the flare, solar radiation and an electro magnetic pulse ravaged the planet, shifting the climate tables around in disastrous ways turning Deserts into frozen tundras, massive cities overgrown in plantlife and abandoned for centuries, forests turned to deserts and beaches to dried up canyons.

    Underground, and kept secret the holdouts of another world still thrive, although weakened by being kept underground not even in communications with other facilities. They cower in their living tombs, terrified by what lies outside, sending only the toughest out to map out the new world, though their real mission is to find out how to take the surface back.

    The surface dwellers only know one thing, survival and war, and have waged war with the Sky Master and his army of horrors, and nothing seemed to turn the tides to humanity's favor until the people of the Black Forest found a weakness, the powers of Chorizu, and in finding this weakness they were rewarded with destruction, and having no alliances to other tribes the discovery went unknown, the Sky master himself being the delivering hand from his Solar Fortress.

    If you’re going to use technology, you’re character will have to be from an underground NOAH Sanctuary, alternatively it can be scavenged or built by gifted surface dwellers.

    The surface Tribes will most always represent a certain aspect of Nature, be it animals or the classic Elements of earth wind water, fire, but also there’s tribes that follow shadows, the forces of light or sound, or they might simply be humans with the ability to link with the new animals that rose after the devastation.

    The Surface dwelling people will always have the use of english however their dialects are going to be devolved and to someone of intelligence they will sound as if they’re stupid.
    Chorizu are the name for surface dwellers with mutant abilities, though the abilities are known to them as Magicks.

    Surviving this world of monsters and savages will be a hard task for an Emerger, though there are task forces that will at times leave the NOAH Sanctuaries for whatever reason be it failing life support systems what have you.

    Due to the devolved nature of Human beings on the surface creatures such as dragons, elves, fantasy staples are permitted, as is the use of Chorizu magicks.

    The SkyMaster is only speculated to be real by the surface dwellers, however, as some Emergers feel his story to be close to the story of Apollo, it’s believed that parts of it might be true regarding scientific theories that the gods of Ancient Greek Mythology might be travellers from the stars, and some paranoid scientists believe that this is a punishment from “Apollo” for depending too much on technology instead of the mystic forces the surface dwellers believe govern aspects of the world.
