The year is 2024, sometime in late summer. It is 20 years after the end of the world.

The world ended on July 24th, 2004. It ended with fire. With blinding lights, and deafening noise. With disease, and destruction. It ended when the bombs fell from the heavens above.

For most, life ended when the world did. Billions snuffed out of existence in a matter of months, never given a chance at survival. The young, the old, the strong, and the weak. It made little difference. All would share the same fate.

It seems as if only by dumb luck did some managed to stagger into the next age. Battered, and bruised, they had somehow managed to survive. They had escaped their impending deaths, although in the process they doomed themselves to a much slower fate. A fate of almost constant struggle, a battle with extinction itself as the world continued to deteriorate into nothingness. A fate of sickness from the ever present pestilence that had engulfed their very souls. They had saved themselves from death, but in doing so, they doomed themselves to a fate of taint and soot.

20 years after the end, you find yourself still struggling, living day to day in the dark, dusty tunnels, of the old Bradshaw Metro.
