Year 2011. The world’s economics faced a new strike of the economical crisis. Situation in Europe becomes worse and worse, some countries loose most of their money and power. A wave of riots strikes Europe. Political situation becomes harder each day. An accident makes US and Asian countries (Russian Federation, China and other East countries) turn at each other, which are actively used by Islamic terrorists. US are in cold war with most countries of Asia and Russia. Also, in that year, climate of our planet starts changing. Ices of Greenland start melting very fast, big ice mountains float along the Atlantic Ocean. Changes in temperature involve climate of all the continents, making it rain in Russia, but not leaving any water for America and UK. The meltdown ended just like it started – fast and suddenly. Few months later, a group of terrorists attempts to spread a virus in US. They hoped that instable situation will make it possible to make an action of bioterrorism. Finally few terrorists were caught trying to spread virus in the water filtering station in Washington D.C. The bottle with an unnamed liquid was taken from terrorists. The accident was made top secret and nobody found out about the happenings in Washington D.C., where terrorists tried to poison the water system.
Due to political situation becoming harder and harder, government of USA decides to have something special behind, so it can be used to prevent a war starting. A special research laboratory was placed in Nevada. There some very experienced scientists started researching the virus taken from terrorists. After it was completely researched, USA government gives an order to use it as a base for a new more dangerous virus, which must be a new step in technology of war. The Decay mark II (the virus taken from terrorists was called Decay mark I) was born. This virus had to affect individual’s brain, reforming his instincts, changing social functions. It was aimed specially on humans and creatures which have very similar genetically code. As you understand, that’s why this virus became able to affect and reform genetically code. Scientists were testing the virus on gorillas. In 5% of tests, virus didn’t change anything in DNK, in 15% of tests virus came into “passive state”, when the infected subject doesn’t change, but carries the virus and can infect any non-infected individual, but in other 80% virus changed some parts of individual’s body, which always ends in subject’s death, because organism detects “reformed” parts as not a part of itself then tries to destruct this part finally killing itself. Because of the Decay’s ability to affect DNK, there was no cure. An ultimate biological weapon was created in Nevada. 5% of test human subjects, whose body hasn’t changed, became socimorphs. Technically they were still humans, had human body and brain, but their mind was destructed. They were aimed to attack any creature, so the aggression was increased. Their instincts were reformed – they felt no fear, no real need in anything. Their social instinct was kept, but also changed. They always stay in groups, but do not act with each other at all. Also, during any activities, their organism burns all the reserves. So, basically, a socimorph is much stronger then a human, if they will fight hand-to-hand. Burning the reserves gives socimorphs a big boost of energy, but slowly kills them. Their motor reflexes are kept. There is another important thing about these creatures – their logic is almost at zero. So, generally, an individual with reformed social functions (socimorph) is an aggressive animal in human’s body, but very stupid and without instincts making creatures protect their life.
The project of Decay was going to be closed. USA government needed the virus only as a thing to scary other countries and wasn’t going to ever use it, because the virus was too dangerous. But there was an outbreak. Somehow, the virus came into the cities. Nobody knew about that, but slowly more and more victims were dying by unknown reasons. More then two hundred people died before USA government understood what is happening. The Decay project was finally closed. Some tries to stop the disease were made, but they didn’t change anything. The virus was slowly spreading and American government asked the whole world for help, because couldn’t stop the infection on its own. The world’s specialists tried to help, but didn’t success. Governments of large countries decide to block both North and South America continents and put it in quarantine. The virus was so dangerous, so could wipe out all the population of Earth. USA had no choice. Other countries made a large defense system to prevent any ships or planes arrive from America, which included a special space defensive system. Every transport met with marks of any countries from America continents is now the first target for any armed forces. Scientists all over the world are trying to make a vaccine.
Year 2024. USA is ruined. The whole country was divided into Red and Yellow zones. Almost all the territory is in Yellow zone, but there are small rounds of Red zones all over this territory. So, looking at the map, you can think that somebody just randomly made red dots on it with a marker. In the Red zones socimorphs absolutely dominate. Virus killed a half of USA’s population. Some more people died because of lack of medicines, hard work and other factors. Government of USA made the parliament an only and absolute ruler. All the freedoms were taken from people, because to survive the country needed a high power. Not all people liked it. Then government took out many social things. Now a not working man won’t get any money. “Everyone should work to keep the country alive”, - was the idea. Telling the truth, it was the right idea. There were not enough workers. Everybody was poor. Due to lack of workers, USA government opens prisons and let’s all the jailed people out. Now local police has permission to kill people for actions, which could finish in jailing in past. This didn’t work. The dying country faced policemen doing what they want. Then the government decides – an organized united armed force needed to protect people from hazards and themselves. USAF was formed and took many recruits very fast. Some unorganized local groups of resistance formed just after USAF started acting. They weren’t strong and trained, so soldiers could deal with them very fast. A group of smart and rich (if compared with others) people noticed that and organized all these groups in one big force – the Liberation Front. USAF faced the real force. A kind of civil war started. Some rich men made huge walls around several places and called them “Green zones”. No one, expect traders, enters or leaves a Green zone. There the life is a bit better then in Yellow zones. Some traders with special permission travel from Green zones to Yellow ones and sell goods made and grown in Green zones to people. There is some information, telling that LF and USAF rulers are hidden in Green zones and give orders from there. This may not be truth.
Year 2031. Slowly, lack of vitamins, good food and protection killed most of population. The government was destroyed; USAF abandoned their orders and started surviving in small groups, sometimes fighting with LF local groups. The climate changed a lot. Finally, much ices of Greenland melted down, which changed temperature a lot. Due to growing populations of animals and lack of people taking care about green plants, most of trees and other plants disappeared. This caused most of terrain turn into dust. Now it is also very hot. Sometimes wind reaches speed of 30 meters per second, hurricanes are noticed weekly. There is no more a country called USA or any other countries located on North or South Americas, now it is just a big wasteland with some people trying to survive.
Now it is year 2042. You are an alive man, which means you are a carrier. There are no immune people, but the carriers of the Decay MII are like immune, but can infect non-infected people. You most likely don’t remember the life before the infection, because after infection maximum time of life people could reach is 50 years. You have skills of survival enough to live in the new America. Your physical state is good, because no one pussy can survive in a wasteland. You may not know how to read and write, that depends on did your parents teach you or not (schools were shut down to prevent mass infections of children). You know how to use a weapon and how to apply first aid. You do NOT know anything about the abroad countries. You may roleplay having some information about other countries in form of fairytales, which can be or not be true.
