the end is fucking nigh...
|Name:||Omega: A Post-Apocalyptic RPG|
|Theme:||A well-guided end of the world RPG taking place in the small town of Normalville, PA.|
“Things are far from normal in Normalville...”
The date is June 14, 2008. The town is Normalville, PA, and with a population of 932, it has always lived up to its name. A sleepy country town tucked away in a valley of the Appalachians, it has been said Normalville is its own little world.
Until two weeks ago. On June 2, the residents of Normalville woke to a small rumbling. Some said earthquake, which is not impossible in these parts, although not likely. That is, until they began to turn on the TVs and the radios. Because they no longer worked. Static on every channel, and a deadly silence where all the radio stations used to be.
There was no one more perturbed than best friends Simon St. James and Mac McGregor, old buddies from the Gulf War. Staying at Simon’s house in the hills outside the town, the two friends hiked up to the north ridge and were horrified to see a large mushroom cloud in the east.
A town meeting was called, where the residents discussed what they knew, which wasn’t much. Frantic, with friends and loved ones outside the town and unable to reach them, many residents of Normalville decided to venture out and see what was going on. When almost a week passed with no word, others ventured out as well. They haven’t been back, but from the tops of the valley ridges, it can be seen that trees are dying and the sky is a foreboding orange color.
Using an old transistor radio in his basement, Simon was able to tune into a military radio station from a base in nearby mountains, trapped in a bunker underground. It was there that the true extent of the destruction was confirmed: almost every major metropolitan center had been hit: New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle. Severe radiation from the blasts have swept the nation. Static prevented him from overhearing who the attackers were, but that the US government did fight back and destruction seemed to be “complete.” He lost the radio signal not long after.
Two weeks in, Normalville is only getting less normal. Due to windpower, electricity still works, but it is faulty. The internet appears to connect only members within the town. Other sites are either dead or abandoned, with no news about what is or isn’t happening out there. The town members have begun to accept that the apocalypse is upon them.
And strangest of all, in the library basement, people have begun appearing. People claiming to be from other places, other times. With the future uncertain and the landscape unkind, how are the residents of Normalville going to cope with this harsh new reality?
