Amor Fati



A hundred and eighty years ago, all that once was, was lost. Only a sliver of humanity and the others that inhabited our world managed to survive. Sickness came as swiftly as the bullets and bombs that started the quick downfall, wiping out whole communities, cities, sometimes even small nations.

History went dark. No one is truly sure as to who started it or why and truth be told it doesn't matter anymore. What matters is restoring what we had lost. Most people these days have settled down. Their ancestors took over old cities, remote villages, rebuilt what was lost in the war the best they could with what little they had. There are those who don't even settle down because generations were brought up wandering and raiding, and it no longer feels right to stay rooted to one spot to them. This meager way of living isn't enough; just surviving isn't enough but there are those who think bringing back all the technology and knowledge we lost will only lead to the true end and they are violent in trying to prevent it from happening. They have burned libraries, whole towns and parts of cities to the ground for the sake of ignorance.

You could say we're not quite there yet. Civilization is a dream not entirely realised, and what little tech we have feels stone aged compared to the stories we were told of what was.

Things are changing, slowly, yet it's still a harsh world to live in and death lingers at every corner in the guise of so many things that had once been fixed.

Containment

The histories stop in the 21st century. The cataclysm should have ended the world. The lands were ravaged, the waters corrupted, the air toxic. Humanity refused to die. They adapted, as their ancestors had countless times in the past.


Two hundred years ago, an event known only as the cataclysm wiped out the majority of the world's population. It caused changes in the environment, in flora and fauna. The world itself seemed to turn on humanity, until humanity itself changed. Mutated. Developed powers and abilities to allow them to live in the transformed world. Survivors banded together and realized they could be their own salvation. They formed a community, their own safe haven, and began the long process of rebuilding.

The year is now 2215, and the city of Haven is standing strong. The Council sees to all. The Council will keep you safe. The Council knows what's best.

LUNAR CRY

LUNAR CRY • A FINAL FANTASY ROLEPLAY   
"The cycle of the lunar cry began tens of thousands of years ago. A traditional dance of life and death between the planet and the moon. Gravity pulls like a tide, and when the moon's surface is so saturated with creatures, it bursts and falls to the planet. It's destroyed nations many times over. It changes the creatures here for the worst, and breathes life into new and terrible dangers. We do not know all of the variables for why it occurs, and it will happen again. We most certainly are not prepared."
    -Dr. Dolfo Curat, Esthar City, March 3rd 2006, on the first Anniversary of the last lunar cry.

It has been nearly ten years since the fall of the last sorceresses, and the anniversary of the last Lunar Cry approaches. The world will never forget the horrors unleashed by Ultimecia and her minions, but together they forge ahead to build a new and brighter future. Esthar has recovered from the onslaught of beasts from the moon, and has opened their borders to other nations, sharing the technological advancements they've honed over decades of isolation. Dollet has regained much of the control of the Galbadian nation as it once had, but the fragile peace is tentative at best. Timber has gained its independence, returning to full strength as a nation in its own right. The island continent of Balamb has seen a new age of development and prosperity. Balamb Garden and its heroes have moved on with their lives, celebrated across the globe for their bravery and sacrifice.

Life has become something better than normal, and not just for he fated six who saved the world. International relations are better than they have ever been. Entertainment as a commodity is no longer a foreign concept. But this peace can be nothing but short lived.

Humanity is flawed, and perhaps some cycles are doomed to repeat for a reason. Steps have been set in motion to shake the foundation of the world to its knees. The next lunar cry is coming, and it brings with it a calamity no one could begin to prepare for.

This may be the final fantasy...
Lunar Cry is a game set in the world of Final Fantasy VIII, allowing both canon characters spanning all FF games and OCs. The game is set just prior to the largest and most disastrous lunar cry the world has ever seen, and will deal with many post-apocalyptic themes.

Fade Away: A Post Apocalyptic Storyline

We thought that the end of the world was the worst thing we could live through. We were wrong.

250 years ago, society collapsed in fire. Nuclear missiles rained down on cities, soldiers fought in the streets. Bombs and terrorists and disease ran rampant, leaving the former world in ruins. Entire countries vanished overnight, while others limped into a slow death, and began to fade away.

Small bands of survivors tried to make it work among the devastation, but few made it, succumbing to fallout, radiation, the remnants of plagues or the reavers of the new world. Eventually, even they went quiet.

Some saw the end coming before it did, and prepared. They went into shelters, deep in the ground, only emerging when it seemed safe. But their supplies couldn't last. When they came into the world, they took over the ruins of London, now known as the Hollow, building walls thirty feet high and creating a new society.

Life was hard in the new world, though. Our technology was primitive, scavenged and bolted together from the last advances before the Earth ceased to be. Food didn't grow, plant life was scarce. Even the sky was tainted by what had come before it, the rain now burning what it landed on, the wind carrying viruses we'd never seen before.

The only way to manage the city, which as far as they knew was the only bastion of civilisation left, was control. Thus, the new society fragmented into component parts, each working towards a common goal. The Rangers would be repsonsible for going outside of the Wall, searching for food, technology, anything to help us survive, and for charting the bizarre new life developing n the wasteland. The Guilds would manage the industrial, agricultural and commercial life in the city. The Sages would maintain the knowledge of the city, and see to the health of its citizens. The Justicars would enforce order among the populace, and the Divine, always there even in the darkest hours, would see to the spiritual needs of the people. A governing council drawn from all parts of the city would oversee its civil operation.

The city has been here for over 100 years now, and we are the next generation. We're free within the bounds of the Hollow, but we all have to follow the rules. Otherwise, we're cast out, and become the Forgotten, exiles doomed to a short, brutish life beyond the safety of the Hollow. For many, there is nothing beyond the walls.

For others, we wonder if there could be something more.
Fade Away is a play-by-journal role-playing game. Players take on the role of a character and interact with other players through creative writing, or role playing, of various scenarios. Posts can be written in a solo, bilateral or group fashion. The genre of Fade Away is, broadly speaking, science fiction, with a heavy post-apocalyptic bent.

Six years ago was the Quarter Quell. Forty-eight children were put into the bloodiest, most horrific Arena to date, and ever since outsmarting them all, the lone survivor Haymitch Abernathy has kept himself in a state of drunken stupor. Still, the games go on - now that the Victory Tour of Dory Skipjack from Four has faded into recent memory, everyone in the Capitol is eagerly awaiting the Reaping of the 56th Games.

Colosseum focuses on the life carried on around the Arena as well as within. Mentors and Victors fight to add one more to their number; Escorts and Stylists are charged with making this the best show yet. There is no Mockingjay to give the districts hope, to spark fear in the hearts of those who are part of President Snow's elite. The noose of the Capitol is tight around the necks of any would-be dissenters, including recent and mysterious deaths among those once thought to be key allies.

This game is based on Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy, and seeks to fill out the world of Panem through the eyes of those involved in presenting the Games.

ATOMMOD

In 1962 the band of mutants who rose up to oppose Shaw never stopped the Americans and Soviets bombing each other. Erik and the others were too late in arriving and consequently World War III was unleashed upon the world and the reveal of the mutants soon followed. Sebastian Shaw's dream, the rise of the children of the atom, was now a reality. Erik and Charles formed the X men together and are an underground resistance, working to salvage the world from Shaw and his army.

Atom is set in 1964, in a post apocalypse setting following real time. The game is canon compliant up until the point where the X Men stopped the Soviets from crossing into Cuba's waters and has other Marvel themes in play.

The Dome

Every survivor has a story if you ask; a tale of hardship that happened when the world changed. When the dead came back. Catch a crowd here in dome 4, Delphi to the locals, and you can find every story imaginable. The pack of kids who stuck together to raise each other, the brothers who never stopped moving, the soldier on a mission with no end, the coroner stuck caring for the living... everyone here has seen something, and the sum of it all is that each of us had seen enough.

Maybe that was the inspiration for the domes, the idea that a thousand survivor’s stories could become one; a unified narrative that echoed the one we’d lost, that said clearly that we weren’t going any-fucking-where even if the whole world we’d known already had.

Sure is the case now. We couldn’t leave if our lives depended on it. And it’s starting to look like they do.

The doors to Delphi sealed tight over a week ago, and the lot of us inside? All we can do is wait for them to open and try to survive the changes happening all around us. Strange attacks, unexplained deaths, and all the paranoia they bring to the people who survive them? They make things like starving to death seem downright boring. Every night’s a gamble now, because there’s things in the dark that outrank us on the food chain.

The best we can do is make them earn the meal, and maybe leave a story with whoever lasts the longest...

In the year 2013, modern civilization came to a tumultuous end starting with the spread of a pandemic illness causing the dead to reanimate. Chaos spread worldwide as all attempts to stop the expansion of the virus failed. Fires began with no one to stop them, cities lost power, and the use of nuclear devices only crippled the world further. Millions of lives were lost and not one country was spared in this catastrophic global event.

Five years later... Reconstruction is the main focus world-wide. In North America, protective domes have been created to keep out zombies, radiation, and any other dangers that might lurk in the post-apocalyptic world. Those surviving have a chance to start again. But what happens when their safe haven traps them in?

One dome, Delphi, has gone into lockdown, and the things that happen within are unexplainable. Ghosts are now visible, bat bites have turned people into vampires, and wolves currently roam the streets. While everyone was human to begin with, things are changing as the days pass and new threats are thrown at those who survive!

The Dome is an original character, supernatural-survival RPG that started on March 22, 2013. Come join the chaos!

Populous Postea Has Returned!


Welcome to the chronicles of Populous Postea, a story set in Post-Apocalyptic America. Our story takes place in the distant future where vampires, due to a virus, have slowly begun to devolve into primal creatures who continuously seek out blood.

America has closed it's borders to contain the epidemic. No one is allowed to leave and no one from the outside is allowed to enter. What was once a prosperous country is now but a former shell of itself. Cities have now become territories, glorious skyscrapers have now become communities of survivors, and the rest of the world holds it's breath as they wait and see...
