"Alaska, "The Last Frontier" or so they say, a place once peaceful and serene. We had a front row seat to the end of the world. No matter where you were, you could see them streaking overhead. Tearing the skies open before impacting earth. From miles away we heard the explosions and perhaps too, the thousands of the screaming and dying. From miles away we felt the after shocks which rattled our ho,es and our bones. Fire, like the mouth of hell had opened up; spewed skywards blotting out the very light of day. Radioactivity rolled over the earth, contaminating everything it touched like a poison. Vegetation wouldn't grow, animals had metamorphosis into something unnatural. We never saw the sun again after that day. Our world now black and hazy, snowed a perpetual snow of ashes. Our monuments once great and lustrous, now stand vacant and empty. Symbols of who we once were are buried beneath the ruins of yesterday." This roleplay will take place in Anchorage, Alaska. The role-play will happen several years AFTER the nuclear bombs fall upon several major U.S and Russian cities.The land, water and air are all heavily polluted, there will be no such thing as clean drinking water, not unless you scavenge for it. Radiation will play a role in this, you will have a set amount you can have per day. Anything over that will make you sick, or even kill you. I will be working on a table, and will implement a dice roll system that is even and fair. Other dangers include pockets of other survivors, which can be very armed to just barely protecting themselves. If you decide to attack them, the blood will be on your hands and should play a role in your character's growth. -Ghouls which are zombie-like creatures. These beings are mutated humans, having lived in heavily irradiated locations. Their skin is falling off and they will attack without hesitation, or remorse. Ghouls can run, and because they no longer have the sense of pain, can run far longer than most ordinary people. They shamble when walking, and eat human flesh. -Wildlife too has been altered, bears and wolves have become more ferocious and willing to attack humans. Elk, moose and deer still provide a natural meal but at the cost of being irradiated themselves, will increase your radiation level. -I will only be accepting adult members. 18+ -There will be specified roles within the group. Notice: You are not an expert in these fields. You just have more knowledge in them than the rest of the group. However, as this story unfolds, you can begin to make your character more experienced. -Only three people may join making the group of five. -Group Roles are as follows. One to a role for the time being, though you may be called upon to help a more experienced character in another capacity with their responsibility.
