The year is? well for the most part the general populace is unsure on this fact, it has been several generations since the end of ‘The Great War’. Time in terms of years has been difficult to measure as the planets ecosystem has been wrecked, the seasons a distant memory, told to children, as an aid to their finding dreamstate each night. In terms of the seasons it has been winter since the war ended.
A great many of the species on Earth were made extinct in the ravages of war and the harsh climate changes that followed. Wether it was the nuclear or biological weapons, on the same count, a great many species have also emerged. Sentience on earth is no longer restricted to mankind, and mankind in it’s pure form is now a rare occurance.
The Earth itself has changed as well, not just the climate either. Seas have been flash boiled in nuclear infernos and the volcanic and tectonic activities from that have created new land masses. Biological weapons have created vast tracks of lifeless wastelands, and mutated forests and jungles into thriving collective consciousnesses. The dormant magic of the Earth has been awoken too, the network of leylines that crisscrossed the planet in pre-war years have been forced into a new and strong alignment. Places once mystical in the mind of man now tingle with the flow of mana redirected.
Technology as we knew it has changed. A great many things have been forgotten and relearnt in new ways. There are tribes that preserve the old ways, holding prewar tech in almost religious reverance. There are tribes that have relearnt the ways to build and construct in their own and unique ways. There are tribes who have learnt new ways to use the changes to the world.
This is a new world..
The Year is 120 PW. (post war)
