Sins of our Ancestors: The Resistance
"After decades of fighting and war, the humanity caused their fall themselves.
In year 2017, the world that was known perished in the flames of heaven as the "Angels" arrived to the earth.
"Angels", so they called themselves even thought they didn't resemble the angels we knew in slightest.
These Angels were demonic creatures leading an army of undead with them, they were gigantic beasts destroying the lands and buring the cities that humans had built and tried to protect from each other for so long. The Angels destroyed them in few weeks after arriving on the Earth. After the destruction of all major cities, the Angels darkened the sky with some strange substance, creating a gloomy, blood red sky over us... What is it there for...?"
*By an Unknown historican, 15.09.2017*
Now, in year 2067, 50 years after the first attack of the Angels, the humanity, or what was left of it, has managed to regroup in secret. There are small settlements all around the world in which the Humans gather for protection or supplies even thought the settlements are attacked by undeads once in the month, killing the fourth of the people living there.
Now, the children who were born aftet the attack of the Angels have merged strange powers due of the bloody air and are capable of fighting against the Undead as well as protect the settlements, even thought in the end the Undead always win...
Until this day...
Groups of human have started to move, hoping to defeat the Angels who command the Undead armies in order to secure the humanity's safety...
They are all been called by a strange voice that gives them hope and courage. Is there still hope for the humans or is it doomed to be banished into the fires of Hell?
After the destruction of all big cities and the death of majority of humans there are only small settlements in which refugees live. And one of those we begin our story.
The Black Forest in germany, now called "Schwarze Felder", "Black Fields" due of the black ash from the burnt trees. Here, a small settlement is built near the destroyed city of Freiburg, an old unversity city. In the camp live about 5000 people and it is again the time in month in which the Undead attack them.
The attack started the same time as usual, directly after the sun had settled. The defenders were prepared to fight against the Undead and even repelled attack after attack.
Only... like every time, at the midnight, the Undead started to push throught the defences. It was like they were getting more and more as well as their strenght grew stronger all the time as the time passed destroying the camp and killing the fourth of the people there...
As the sun rises, you awaken in the ruins of the camp. All around you are corpses and ash of the Undead who died during the night.
You are sick of fighting this useless war against the Undead who cannot be defeated, no matter how much you try.
You have been fighting for all your life, as long as you can remember, there has been a red sky over you and the Undead have attacked you every month. You have always heard about failed attempst to attack an Angel as well as people trying to rebuild a destroyed city getting killed.
You are sick of it as well as you are sick of your own weakness not even be able to defend the persons you love.
Then, wounded and broken you hear a voice inside your head, it's a female voice that calls for you;
"Ohhh... You feel so weak and helpless, don't you? You are sad about all the friends you lost and angry to the Angels as they destroyed your life, aren't you? What would you do if you had the power to stand up and fight? Would you avange your family and friends or would you just seek the thrill of battle? What would yu do if I had the power to help you? Would you come to meet me, or would you ignore me, the one known as Iregana?! You will find me in the 'Erased Mountains'...
Soooo come and seek for me if you have the courage for it! Hahahahahahaaaa!!!"
Then the voice disappeared, leaving you lying on the ground.
You are a survivor of an Undead Attack toward the settlement in the Black Fields or you are living on your own in the wilderness. You are a person born under the red sky and so you are capable of having somekind of a special power which is determinated by the time you were born.
The powers are divided in five categories according the time of the day:
Dawn: (2a.m - 6a.m) = The persons born during the earlist hours of the day have been granted the powers to control the course of the day. They mostly have powers that has something to do with light, fire and life.
Sunrise: (7a.m - 11a.m) = Those born after the sun has risen have the power of the great Star. They have enchanted physical capabilities making them stronger, faster, more durable than normal humans.
Midday: (12a.m - 4p.m) = Those born as the sun shorches the most trought the red mist are blessed with the treasures of the earth. They have powers that resemble the element of earth, plants and air.
Dusk: (5p.m - 9p.m) = Those who were born as the air started to chill decide over the next sunrise. They use the powers of water, ice and confusing powers.
Midnight: (10p.m - 1a.m) = Those born as the night is deepest are the masters over those who no longer have the will to decide. They control the powers of darkness, death and pain.
The game is taking part in a post apocalyptic scenario where there is no more modern technology, or only scraps of it. The weaponary is mostly swords and bows but there are also some people who have managed to get their hands into modern guns or they have made some themselves. The guns made are old-fashioned weapons from the time of the 1. WW but the weapons that have been found are weapons of today (notice that it has been 50 years since the arrival of the Angels so there won't be any original ammunition left and most of the weapons have been modified.).
Note: The Erased Mountains are the Alps which were destroyed by the Angels as they attacked.
