The year is 2158.
Following the unfortunate chain of events after terrorist attacks in the year 2001, multiple nuclear blasts have decimated the United States with a ground zero detonation in Killeen, Texas, a small military town near Ft. Hood where no one survived.
As global instability escalated over the last century, discord among nations was forever at the tipping point. Now on full-blown alert, another bomb shakes New York City as America reels from the effects of radiation. It is now every man, every woman, and every child for itself. America has finally run out of options.
There are three safe havens where you can seek shelter from radiation fallout and nuclear bombings. Each player must choose where to go for safety. There is also a central Red Cross rendezvous point where players can re-group and heal before continuing their journey.
From San Francisco, your closest safe-haven is the VIVOS Survival Shelter near Atchison, Kansas. VIVOS is the vision of a California entrepreneur who has built the world's largest privately owned survival shelter, large enough for 5000 residents.
From Killeen, Texas, you can reach the Greenbrier Bunker; a bomb and fallout shelter built for congressional workers in the 1950's. It is hidden under the Greenbrier Hotel and still functional.
From New Orleans, via Amtrak, you can reach the safe-haven Bunker M-42 in New York City, a bomb shelter deep under Grand Central Terminal where another friend, Maria, is holed up with a small group of survivalists. You must decide how you will get there. By train, on foot, or by any means available. Options abound but you must choose wisely.
But first, you must tend to an injured friend and co-worker buried under rubble in a New Orleans Depot Warehouse.
If you are up to the challenge, find medical supplies to save a friend before you head northbound. If you can get the Amtrak train up and running, start managing your resources so you can evade predators and marauders along the way and find out if you can adapt and overcome your circumstances to survive this extraordinary journey.
Hopefully, you will live to see a brighter day in the New Millennium. Perhaps, you might even enter another dimension; an alternate reality at the edge of the sea near Coney Island, Brooklyn, where a distant past awaits you; that is if you choose to escape the ravages of the New Millennium and travel back to a safer time.
Good luck! Either way, you are going to need it.
For now, your daring journey to a safe-haven and your path to survival, starts right here.
