Specs in the Ocean
[Rated M for language, violence, elements of supernatural/fantasy horror, and other potential mature themes.]
Atlantis. This once beautiful world, full of life, cities filled to the brim with people. Hundreds of years ago, the Great Drowning began and covered the world in an endless ocean. Ancient mountain tops are now the only land masses, too small to support the remaining world’s population. Most who survived began to construct ships from whatever they could get their hands on, and began to live on the ocean's surface. Today, hundreds of fleets travel the ocean, living off of what they can catch and grow, salvaging from wrecks and cities on the ocean floor in this world they know as Nero.
Over the years many have been exposed to unique materials, radioactive substances, and were changed over time. Those who’ve been affected are more kindly referred to as “Shifted”. The few island settlements tend to reject such beings while the Shifted are more welcome in the fleets that inhabit the sea.
These fleets that roam the great ocean are generally self-sustaining, growing and gathering their own food out at sea as they seek and retrieve salvage from the ocean floor, hoping to get some of the ancient crystal powered technology used by their predecessors. Technology which has not been seen since the drowning of the world. Energy sources that would put the gas they use to shame, weapons that could easily punch a hole through a ship’s hull, and equipment that could do the same job better than anything else known.
