Just a place to organize ideas we had for the post apocalyptic RP.

I guess a big one is do we want something like zombies or mutants wandering around?

Where do we want this to take place?  I would keep it at around a state level size if we do the United States or maybe even region (ie Southeast, Northeast, Great Lakes)

Cause(s) of the apocalypse.

That's all I got for now, discuss.

Kalahira, mistress of inscrutable depths, I ask forgiveness.
Kalahira, whose waves wear down stone and sand—
Kalahira, wash the sins from this one,
And set him on the distant shore of the infinite spirit.
Kalahira, this one’s heart is pure,
But beset by wickedness and contention.
Guide this one to where the traveler never tires,
The lover never leaves, the hungry never starve.
Guide this one, Kalahira,
And he will be a companion to you as he was to me.

Here's what I've been thinking:

Potential Baddies

  • Bandits/Thugs
  • Zombie mutants (basically feral ghouls)
  • Mutated creatures (maybe look to Stalker for inspiration?)
  • Evil faction or two
  • Mercenary groups (both potential allies and enemies)


Location(s)

Somewhere with a variety of environments. I'd like to look at somewhere on the US/Canadian border


Cause of Apocalypse

I'm open to anything.

Great lakes area would be good, more than half of us are actually near that area.

They even have premade post apocalyptic buildings in Detroit, they are ready.

A variety of climates might be hard to find in the size of area we are looking for but might be possible.  

I say definitely yes to Lachlan's list.

Per chat I think Nuclear War might be the best cause even if it is cliche it not only does a lot of damage but it has bad after effects that linger.   The Only other thing off the top of my head that could do something like that would be the Yellowstone Supervolcano erupting.


If we do the GL do we want that entire area or just the shaded portions

Nuclear war is usually the go-to cause, for good reason methinks.

If Yellowstone erupted there would be a crater where North America used to be.

True we can stick with nukes for now.   

How long after said apocalyptic event (most likely nukes) do we want this taking place?.   Sev suggested the range of 50-75 years.

This looks good. Should we narrow down to a smaller area/state?

I think just the shaded area is fine, if we wanted smaller maybe just Wisconsin and the not mitten looking part or michigan

Shaded area works for me.


Here's the shaded map compared to the nuclear target map:









It looks like Detroit and Chicago get it

Chicago is a big city and Detroit was a big manufacturing hub, still sort of is.

Toronto would probably get hit hard too, really the only place
Not affected is the other part of Michigan

Per this afternoons discussion, what does everyone else think about the cause for the nuclear incident being forgotten, or not consistent, like the only thing we know that there was a war in the past and nuclear missiles were launched by someone

Edit:  Lachlan or Sev do you have anything else you want to discuss from it, I was in and out of it because of class
