    The purpose of this thread is to provide a catalog of user made lore for untitled projects. It exists to give people the ability to write and share ideas that can be merged with that of others. Mostly for fun and something to waste time on.

    Our job is to create Stories, factions, histories, and people for the New World(Post-collapse) and Old World(Pre-collapse)
    Once we create those we can create tales, organizations and heroes and villains within this project.
    Anyone is allowed to contribute. This is a thing to waste time, write, and have fun.
    Feel free to ask questions.

    The setting is our world in the wake of societal collapse. A deadly alien virus, a large scale nuclear exchange, and an economic collapse coupled together to destroy much of the world that we know.

    -The present year would be 2320. 300 years after the nuclear exchange that lead to the collapse.
    -The alien virus arrived in the year 2017 and spread among continents until 2021 killing 40% of the human population. It is now a very rare occurrence in the New World
    -The nuclear exchange took place in 2020. Although only nine countries fired upon each other the radiation and EMPs affected nearly every nation. Major cities and capitals of the involved nations were struck. Another 20% of the human population killed in the exchange then another 7% dead in the aftermath from radiation and diseases resurfacing from no more clean drinking water. A good amount of people were left sterilized from the radiation, worsening the rate of recovery for the world's population. The world's human population sat at 2.7 billion.

    The Pathogen
    Pre-War: EXS4 (Extraterrestrial Strain Four)
    Post-War: Bloodbane

    The research labs went down before anyone could really figure out what it was. It behaved like a virus, with the incurability of a prion disease, and the survivability of extremophile bacteria.

    It could spread through the air. It could spread through the water. It could live in the soil or live on a surface. Bodily fluids could spread it, even the trace amounts of blood in Urine. The rumors were that it can survive in space. The doctors died before they could really name it. We got to calling it Bloodbane.

    It doesn't present with symptoms at first. We think it waits, lurking as a harmless particle in disguise, traveling through the bloodstream slowly, maybe making a copy or two, nothing that would really set the immune system off, finally taking residence in the brain.

    It takes a while for it to start. For the weak or infirm it might only take a week, the strong can go almost 3 without symptoms, but it averages right around the two week mark.

    It makes it's move in the brain, seizing control of the chemical that regulates immune response, and from there one of three things will happen:

    1. The body will hyper-produce clotting platelets, stopping all blood movement within minutes, causing simultaneous body-wide aneurysms, severe heart attack, and severe stroke, the blood remaining clotted even after death. This one we call "Bloodstopper".
    2. All clotting agents and indicators will turn on each other, the immune system self destructing as it is convinced it's fellow immune cells and platelets are pathogens, eliminating the bodies ability to stop bleeding, even at the capillary level. The simple act of being in contact with a surface, the tiniest damage to the tiniest blood vessel, is where the bleeding begins, afflicting areas swelling to massive proportions until an opening in the skin is created (either by bursting, ripping, or intentional interference), at which point the host will continue to bleed freely until death. This one we call "Bloodletter".
    3. The body begins to hyper-produce warped blood cells and platelets, ones with "edges", slicing everything they come into contact with as they move through the body, vessels, healthy cells, organs, brain and heart tissue, overwhelming the bodies ability to stop it's internal bleeding as nearly every part of the body incurs trillions of micro-cuts over a short, but intensely painful time period, hosts expiring quickly under the onslaught. This one we call "Bloodshredder".

    Given the covert nature of the disease, no one knows they have it until the symptoms begin, and no one can predict which symptoms will occur even if they can reasonably determine they've been exposed to the disease. Corticosteroids are able to delay the speed of the symptoms, allowing the afflicted a maximum of a few additional hours of painful survival, but in normal doses they are too weak to significantly stall the disease, and in the huge doses that would be necessary to even begin combating it they just kill the afflicted outright.

    The entire thing also seems to be one connected pathogen, as though the effect it imbues is randomly selected by the pathogen itself. Patients killed by the "Bloodstopper" variety were known to infect doctors or nurses with the "Bloodletter" or "Bloodshredder" strains in addition to the original "Bloodstopper" strain, at a rate that suggested each was as likely as the other, with no way of determining which would activate until the symptoms presented.

    The afflicted were informally referred to, particularly after death, as Bloodbags, and even after death would continue to clot until all vessels were filled with platelets (pushing all the blood out in the process), continue to bleed until the entire body was drained of blood, or continue to damage all internal surfaces until the "edged" cells made their way out of the body. Due to the extremely high communicability and the extremely messy process of death, bodies and all associated fluids were to be chemically isolated and then burned. In areas like the Hawaiian Islands bodies were even thrown in the volcanoes when locals began to run out of fuel to burn them effectively.



    Then, just as mysteriously as it began, it stopped. The nukes had been dropped, governments destabilized, society ripped to pieces, and in the aftermath the pathogen had almost seemed to disappear. It wasn't the nuclear winter, it had been shown to survive in every condition short of being literally on fire. It was in the air, in the water, every surface, every material seemed to have it, nowhere seemed to be safe, and just as suddenly as it had appeared it was gone.

    There are still rumors. Every once in a while you hear a story of someone being killed by it, a house going up in flames as terrified villagers lock the afflicted inside and burn the whole thing to the ground. Stories like this are few and far between, hearsay and paranoia, always with inconclusive evidence. Maybe we're immune, maybe there was something specific to our environment that pushed it out, maybe there was an on/off switch and whatever had sent it here had had its fun. Either way, the stories are enough to keep us careful. It might not be immediate in our lives anymore, but to this day a dead body is a thing of panic, and no one in their right mind will go near one without a suit and a death wish.

    No one knows how the virus came to be, the only thing they know for certain is that it originated from the meteor site in Bhutan. It is presumed (again, no one knows for certain) that one of the scientists working on the impact site was exposed to some alien bacteria. The alien bacteria somehow managed to come into contact with the scientists cells and ended up mutating them into the seemingly unstoppable virus that was later dubbed EXS4. After only three months of being exposed to the alien bacteria did it finally begin spreading.

    The scientist was found dead three days after actually dying. When he was found, the window in his hut was wide open and the body itself was almost completely destroyed, leaving behind something that was barely even recognizable as human. The only reason they were able to identify who the scientist was, was through his dental records. Sadly though, in the end, none of that mattered as the virus had already spread across the wind and found many more hosts.

    Biggles Here To Help


    Organization Name: Bower's Boys
    Organization Leader: John David Bower
    Official Establishment Year: 2250-2260 (no clear date is known)
    Organization Presence: Highways of the Southeastern US
    Organization Profession: Biker gang. They control the unclaimed highways between nations, charging travelers for "using" their highways (even though a lot of the travelers end up dead.) Also smuggle guns, weapons, drugs, and slaves into territories to sell. Harass caravans as well. To some nations, they will act as mercenaries. Also occasionally will sell makeshift vehicles and scrap.
    Organization History: Founded from a coalition of bikers, rednecks, and escaped criminals, the group's name is always changing based on the leader. For the last 5 years, it has been run by John D. Bower, who took power after a power vacuum was left by the former leader (believed to have been killed in a dispute). ​

    Faction Name: The United Scandinavian Republic
    Faction insignia/colors: [​IMG]
    Faction Territory:
    All areas surrounding the Baltic Sea, Iceland, and Svalbard
    Official Establishment Year: 2028
    Governmental Structure: Republic/Democratic
    Culture and Society: Most of the countries that make up the USR are now more Atheist than before the war. At least 3/4 of the population is Atheist and due tot his many churches were demolished and used for building material. Only a handful of churches remain, and they are located in the most major cities throughout the USR territory. Thanks to the USR people becoming Atheist and choosing reason over blind faith, this has allowed them to become a very hospitable country, retaining much from the old world. While not every home has a TV or car like in the Old World, they do still have television sets that are available to the public and set up in town squares and/or similar areas. However, any set not found in a town square is very primitive and is shown in black and white, with some not even having sound. Just as well, the only sets that have color to them are found in the major cities.

    Depending on the crime, it is punishable by death, imprisonment, fines, or community service. Community service has changed from the old world in that now there are less restrictions on what the criminal cannot do. For one thing, they can be beaten, but only if the situation calls for it (ie: If the criminal refuses to pick up trash, pick crops, back talks, etc.), and for another the criminal can be forced to do labor for free. Nowadays, fines are not put a set amount for the crime, the criminal has to pay a certain amount depending on how much they have and also the crime. If the criminal does not pay the fine they are left with either imprisonment, or community service. Most crimes are not sufficient that they require the death sentence, but there are still a few that do and unlike the old world, murder is sufficient enough for the death sentence more times than not. Nowadays sexual assault and rape are sufficient enough for the death sentence, and so is animal cruelty, harassment (depending on severity), as well as personal gain at the expenditure of others. One thing that has made a return from medieval times is gladiator matches being sued to settle disputes.

    Due to the sheer size and population of the USR, many Old World sports and forms of entertainment had returned and many new ones have been created. The Old World sports and forms of entertainment that have returned are: (These have championship games and media coverage)
    - Rugby
    - Lacrosse
    - Fighting
    - Racing (Not with cars)
    - Soccer/Football
    - Hockey (Most common among the colder regions)
    - Volleyball/Tennis (Most common among the warmer regions)
    - Dancing
    - Singing
    - Magic Shows (No championships but it is a wide form of entertainment)

    The New World games that have been created are: (These have championships and media coverage)
    - Battleship (The objective of this game is to sink your opponents ship. This is just like Battle-Bots only in boats and the punishment for losing is that you have to swim to shore.)
    - Slamball (Just like the real life game, only this one has trampolines all along the court and along the edges. You can also shove down your opponents.)
    - Tchoukball (Without the "no running" rule, you can pass as many times as you want, and there is a "goalie". Since there is a goalie the trampolines are much bigger. This can also be played like Slamball with trampolines being all over the court.)
    - War (You have a set battlefield and your goal is to take out the entire other team. Typically this game is either played with dodgeballs or paintball guns, but there are versions where you can beat the other player to a bloody pulp if they don't yield.)

    Due the USR having old world tech, they were able to construct a handful of factories that produce stuff that range from bullets to furniture to radios/TV's to simple building material. However, most places are still stuck with building stuff by hand and due to this many places outside major cities are very primitive and don't have the many luxuries that big cities have.

    Thanks to a seed bunker in Svalbard, they are not only the most technologically advanced country/faction in the New World, but they also produce the most food. This bunker in Svalbard contains every single type of seed on the planet (that haven't gone extinct). Due to this they enjoy luxuries such as coffee, sugar, and many others that can not be produced anywhere else naturally.

    Economy: (Product based, imports, exports)
    Military/Foreign Relations:
    Thanks to an unused and underground US military stockpile in Norway, the USR is one of the only, if not the only faction/country with tanks. In this stockpile there was between 100 - 200 M1A1 Abrams tanks, 200 - 400 Humvee's, 10 - 30 M1097 Avengers (Anti Air), 50 - 100 Combat Engineering Vehicles, 10 - 30 M270 MLRS vehicles, 100 - 200 M939 trucks, 50 - 150 LVS vehicles, 100 - 200 M113 APC's, and 25 - 50 Stryker APC's.

    So what countries were involved in the war and does the alien virus still exist somewhere on our planet?

    Fantastic question.
    Here's an outline I put together earlier, it's rough but it's just the starter.
    Virus is pretty nonexistent post-war. Someone will get sick every once in a while but it's pretty much gone.
    Here's war/conflict stuff:

    -Comet struck in Bhutan carrying virus, leveled a village, spread to birds, then to people. India and China hit next. Spread to Australia then onto North and South America and then to Europe and the northern coast of Africa.
    -Countries tightened their borders to try and stop the spread of the contagion. Pakistani troops massacred Indian refugees. India bombed Pakistani border town in return. India/Pakistan declare war on each other.
    -China and Turkey support Pakistan, Russia tries to talk down India and Pakistan. United States supports India in opposition to China. United Kingdom, France, and Germany follow the United States and side with India. Russia sides with China, Turkey, and Pakistan in opposition to the United States.
    -Lots of economic and trade sanctions go down. A number of countries not involved in the disagreement are affected as a result of the larger countries and suffer economically.

    Faction Name: Before

    Faction insignia/colors:

    [​IMG]

    Faction Territory: Appalachia (Central and Southern portion of Appalachian Mountains), located just outside the D.C. wasteland.

    Official Establishment Date: 2023

    Current Faction Leader: Evelyn Sona and Lorn Roran

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Governmental Structure: Pure Democracy

    Culture: Taking after the Ancients, it's a culture that's heavy on passion, survival, and naturalism, with a notorious emphasis on passion. Contrary to popular belief, Before respects all forms of love, Romantic, Familial, Friendship, and Charity, though, as stereotype demands, many tend to be a bit sex-focused, though the other three forms of love are almost equally represented.

    Despite their open-love policies, not all is allowed. Sexual Assault is punishable by death, assault on the vulnerable (children, animals, the infirm, etc) is considered particularly vile, and is met with absolute shame in addition to the strict death penalty. Many marriages are open, bonds of consistency rather than absolute monogamy. Pregnancy and birth is celebrated as sacred, the opportunity to birth and raise a child is considered a great honor and one that none take lightly.

    While a passionate, artistic people, Before would not exist were it not for their passion for survival, a desire that makes them fantastic warriors. Contrary to many militaries, their Army is encouraged to date, intermingle, and form bonds with one another, ascribing to the success of the Sacred Band of Thebes, an army formed of 150 pairs of lovers, an arrangement that made them battle all the fiercer to protect the ones they loved. Were Before not so open a society the arrangement could be disastrous, but as polyamory is predominant there are few problems among ranks.

    The Current Leaders, Evelyn and Lorn, were elected several years, Evelyn idealistic and altruistic, Lorn pragmatic and calculating, both of them caring deeply about their fledgling nation, surrounding themselves with the brightest minds and the bravest warriors to accomplish this. Representative of their people, they are passionate, intelligent individuals. Evelyn is gentle, and not one for fighting, Lorn is intimidating and possesses a mind for tactics, a natural fighter, but not as Diplomatic as Evelyn is. They are rarely in the same place at the same time, to prevent leadership being disrupted were something to happen to both at once.

    Economy: Exports, creative works, which in these days consist of creative weapons, creative armor, and other mechanical tools and devices with interesting or unique designs. They are not a very digital people, not really against it, but they tend to rely on more direct technology, claiming it is more efficient than newer, more unstable technology.

    Military: Kinetic Weapons, Ballistic Rifles, Propelled Rockets, Swords and Knives for close quarters combat. Armor is made of highly reinforced metals and synthetics, handcrafted to withstand tremendous heat and pressure, while also minimizing noise and maximizing movability. Notably, one of their more unique troop arms would be the powerful bow and arrows some squads are outfitted with, which are capable of dealing incredible damage on the battlefield, ripping not just through troops, but even armored vehicles, able to be outfitted with explosive or corrosive compounds to maximize their deadliness. Unfortunately, due to the weight and size, only certain troops are able to wield them after undergoing specialized training.

    History: The call back to the "ancient" times was an easy one. Nuclear power, runaway technology, the digital age, all had been the focus of a relentless societal obsession, an obsession that would eventually see their downfall and subsequent rewind into the "Dark Ages" while the world recovered from the devastation. Many weren't able to make the transition back to real life, weren't able to adapt to a world that had fundamentally changed, that no longer catered to any rule but survival, but Before rose even as others fell, their simpler world easy to manage, easy to maintain, and easy to follow.

    As it's name implies, many of it's core ideologies are ones of the past, the idea of direct democracy, the idea of universal justice, and the general lack of rules or restrictions governing the actions of others. The usuals were "illegal", murder, theft, other such crimes, but these were dealt with locally, with the idea that fairness would breed fairness, and that deceit would be uprooted where discovered. As such, a specific law enforcement was not needed, only a democratic justice system which would uncover evidence of crime or deceit and deal out appropriate justice upon those that had done wrong.

    In accordance with it's nature, Before is made up of a wide variety of constituents, holding a wide variety of beliefs aside from the core ones that unite them. There are no real "leaders" among them, but the people realize there is strength to be had in unity as opposed to separation, and that in addition to their universal shared beliefs have allowed them to remain together without much incident.

    Notes:
    -Duels are legal, as long as both parties are both willing and able and agree to the risks and consequences beforehand.
    -Adultery is rarely committed, as most marriages are open, but it can be a crime when it occurs within an otherwise monogamous relationship where one partner is unaware the other is seeing other people.
    -Adulthood is generally defined as being the conclusion of puberty, different for everyone, but plays little role in society, as any can drive, work, or fight so long as they have the capability.
    -The military is made up of volunteers who must pass grueling physical, mental, and emotional training before entering the battlefield, but most civilians have weapons anyway and have trained themselves in their usage, making them tough to take over.
    -Few goods are illegal, making Before a thriving place of drug trade.
    -Vehicles are often more "mechanical" than digital, cars, trucks, jeeps, motorcycles, boats, even some helicopters, tending to be less speedy, but having greater endurance and built more solidly.

    Like ebola only with a much longer incubation and worse symptoms?

    EDIT: Would any countries have been caught in the crossfire and have a nuke dropped on them? Would there also be several chernobyl like incidents in other countries or is it just the radiation spreading?

    Ebola only spreads through blood and body fluids. Needs to be airborne or waterborne.

    Meaning no mutants? There'd still definitely be irradiated zones right?

    Pre-war technology is scavenged, some simple stuff is able to be recreated. Vehicles can't be built from scratch. Anything that's modern is built from preexisting components and it still wouldn't be up to snuff of it's pre-war counterpart. Stuff up to the medieval age can be built like windmills or waterwheels very well.
    People with genetic deformities, yes. Like messed up faces or weird eyes, extra limbs, I dunno... But no Stalker-tier stuff. Major cities are unsafe to visit without proper equipment from radiation.

    So we can't have anything like tanks or gun trucks or just vehicles in general?

    As for mutations, would people look like ghouls from fallout or like deadpool without the mask? As for animals would they just look like the Brahmin/radstags from fallout, or would we also have big ads cock roaches and stuff like that?
