In 2070, China declared war on us, the United States of America. By 2072, it was World War 3. By 2074, we were winning, fairly well, but then China decided to go nuclear. And by that I mean they shut us down.
At least we assume. i guess it could have been someone else? Regardless, we were suddenly without power, all across the U.S. We tried older methods of communication, but honestly most of them had broken down. Things went ok for a while, people were managing, but then the plague came. Some say it was a bio-weapon, but I think most of us believe it was sheer bad luck. About 1/3 of us died, at least around here. That’s when the world went mad. People were scared, and they were right to be. Everyone was dying, you didn’t know who had it, it was awful. But a very small percentage, maybe .01% got… well, for lack of a better word, got superpowers.
Thank god for that, because it meant Organoa came. They’ve been the savior to this cursed city, they’ve brought back the light.
