Rome has fallen. Nature has once again claimed the world as her own. If one were to wander around the old cities, over growth is now covering most of the buildings and the signs of human activity would be eerily missing. The hypothetical traveler would have to question what happened. In the late 1980s, as the U.S.S.R.'s economic and political decline put it in danger of losing the Cold War, the Soviet leadership made a desperate gamble to rearrange the global balance of power. They unleashed a super-tech weapon that was designed to trigger human brains to become overwhelmed and cause violent deaths. These weapons were called Ghost Bombs. However, little did the Soviets know, the US government had a similar weapon that would be unleashed as soon as the East Coast was hit…. A non-nuclear*Third World War*decimates the human population. However, moving closer towards the seas and waterways, one can find that the human will to survive has once again proved its worth… Roughly 600 years have passed since that time. New nations have arisen from the ashes of the old. States like the US and the USSR had difficulty maintaining order and power, thus international organizations and religious sects have been established in the aftermath. The nation of Semile is one such region. Labeling itself, “New Rome,” the Church once again gained more important in the following decades after the falling of the Ghost Bombs. Much like power of the Church during the Dark Ages, the nation of Semile is currently dealing with the pressing issues of Empire and Faith. Semile, New Rome, The Hope of the World. The nation, itself is in fact a series of “bubbled” cities that extends roughly 227 miles north and south, or what was once considered the Eastern sea board of the United States from DC to New York. Built to last for hundred years, the cities were designed as a sanctuary for humankind after the falling of the Ghost Bombs. The concept of the city is that it is self-sufficient and in that sense, the perfect means to keep civilization in an otherwise unknown world. The average citizen knows next to nothing about the outside world, due to fears of rebellion by the secular arm of the Church. It is inhabited by humans, cyborgs and a few androids. Since the Ghost Bombs only killed off populations and not technologies, computers and other informational higher technologies still exist in Semile, as they do elsewhere. It is more or less similar to what we have now a days with greater focus put on genetics/cloning and the creation of super soldiers to send out into the so called frontiers. It is not known if the government knows about the condition of the outside world or not.
