CHAPTER 1: WELCOME TO POST-APOCOLYPTICA
The past three months had been hell on Earth. The invaders moved from city to city and from country to country devistating everything in their path. Yet no one saw even a glimpse of one besides the machines they had arrived in and their smaller craft. You've been on the move ever since you home was destroyed and the life you knew was shattered. You were one of the lucky ones who avoiding be killed or taken by the aliens. Sometime during the night the stars came out again, the massive ships disapearing as mysterious as they had come.
Your exodus has brought you into the shadow of the Cascade Range. Before now you have run into other people sparingly and usually they have been driven mad. Ahead of you now, along the interstate is a rest stop that looks as if has been turned into a camp. The sounds of people waking and the sight of smoke is even more promising that it is indeed occupied.
