"If there was ever a life before this one, I'd say that they must have done some god awful shit to lead us here..." -Unknown
It's been generations since anyone saw fit to ask what happened to the world. As far as anyone's concerned, this was always the way things were. Everything humanity has ever known is now just a single country's worth of land, surrounded by an endless abyss. A perfectly circular desert pillar with a diameter of 240,000 miles. Society has risen, fallen, risen again, and is now a perfect storm of anarchy and tyranny, with your life either in the hands of a brutal warlord or threatened by one. The only place where this isn't the case is The City. An isolated Metropolis spanning 80,000 miles across the center of the world, protected by massive walls, minefields, armed guards, and more. Inside the walls, it's said that the City has created the technology to infinitely duplicate resources, making them essentially infinite.
However, the enigmatic "Mayor" has shut off the City, only providing the rest of the world with unmanned drones carrying supplies every few days. The drones only drop these supplies four places. Three of them are controlled by the Warlords, with rations passed around to the people in exchange for what amounts to slavery. Some of the settlements not under a Warlords control are forced to raid transports to survive, praying that the might of the Warlords isn't brought to bare against them for doing so. Those towns that don't raid for their living rely on the fourth drop location. The Yorkmizer's Guild of Mercenaries.
The Yorkmizer's Guild has been around for as long as anyone can remember. Seemingly named after the family that runs it, The Guild provides food, water, and protection to those that are willing to pay their price. Unlike the Warlords, however, that price is not slavery, but simply compliance. While the Guild provides resources, they horde much of what drops, keeping all weapons and ammunition for themselves, as well as much of the food and water. Towns under the Guild's protection are often left with very little to fight off the Warlords, save a squad of warriors armed with a Semi Truck and the skill of a thousand men. Yorkmizer's Mercenaries are notoriously skilled in combat, with one unarmed merc fabled to be capable of killing dozens. The Guild takes members young, anywhere from 5-10, and works them to the bone, putting them through training and trials that destroy all but the toughest among them.
You are one of these warriors. A specialized and dangerously skilled combatant. You've completed all the training the Guild requires and are now ready for your first deployment with your squad of fresh faces. Your first charge is said to be a town that has been suffering attacks from a local warlord and has come to Yorkmizer's for protection. You've got your weapon of choice, a Trailer full of ammo, and a destination. It'll be a challenge to establish yourselves in a town like this, but confidence is a must with Yorkmizer. After all, you've trained most of your life, for this. What could go wrong?
