It’s a not terribly distant future, only 100 years or so. But in those hundred years, war, famine, and natural disasters have torn the world asunder. The world fell into anarchy and chaos and has become a wasteland nearly incapable of supporting life. Nearly. While most or all modern (as of 2012) techonologies and conveniences are still available, technology and medicine advancement have come to a screeching halt and the world’s governments have dissolved into the divvying up of territory between clans and tribes and are starting over in one of their most basic of forms; some have formed alliances and others are still waging wars over long-forgotten trivialities.
But word has been spreading recently in the area, word of a charismatic leader who promises unity and peace between all clans of the world. He comes, he preaches, and often within a week more than a few families will wake up to find a family member run off to join his cult. Most clan leaders, however, don’t trust him. You’re a member of one of two clans constantly in conflict over a fairly large piece of land when this gypsy man comes rolling through. Would you join him? Would you try to stop him? Would you go at any lengths to do so, even if it means working with your enemy to do it? عدو العدوي صديقي.
