The World has Died (OOC/Bio forum)

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Rokku Hizori, Apr 1, 2012.

  1. The world has never been more reliant upon technology and electricity than it is in the modern era. It gives us heat, allows mass communication and mass media, enables democracy, grows our food, transports us, and manufactures our goods. Long gone are the days of the armored knight, but the Dark Ages begin anew. A blinding flash was all anyone noticed, but after...darkness. Tvs are blank, radios silent, cars still, and guns harmless. History has changed, and survivors rise to begin writing a new chaper of human history, but once again, this history will be written by the edge of a sword.

    New York City is America's most powerful and valuable city. It is a center of commerce, intelllectual persuits, and culture. It is the city that never sleeps, the great innovator, but like all other cities, it will soon meet with an unsuspecting fate, one that no one saw coming, and one that many will not survive. There are many paths to take, and several lead to success, but choose carefully, as just as many will lead to death. Some paths are hard, some easy, but all lead to a new era of human history. This, my friends, is the end of our world. The Modern world has died, can a better one be established in its place?

He had sworn from that day on to never let money or greed take over him and to lead a life very unlike his father's - vanity and anger fueled. Now, since his mother had moved in with her sister and daughters, Desmond has moved out in order to pursue his love of Parkour and flat-out outdoors. Having spent a year in the tropical rain forests of South America, he has learned from experience survival skills that will get him through whatever may come his way.
