Welcome to World Divided V.2. Your local post apocalypse rebuilding rp thread.
Brought to you by me and Jenkins along with the Espionage Wars Community.
Please take note that his thread will not be 100% realistic or possibly even close to that in some opinions.
But the thread is what it is and the reason we might do some things the way we do is for gameplay’s sake.
It is never too late to join.***
Pre-Nuclear launch lore.**
1998-2000: Political leaders start to get an idea on just how fast Earth will run out of it’s natural resources if something isn’t done. Instead of keeping a cool head and playing along, leaders start to panic and eventually leave alliances and abandon everyone who is not of their nation. This leads to the collapse of NATO and CSTO, along with any other alliances in the world. Every nation now stands alone, there is no one to rely on for safety of ones independence. The end of the world starts now.
2002: For two years the Middle East and the African continent has been ravaged by wars. There is no longer any form of international safety guarantee for smaller, underpowered and peacefull nations. The strongest rules in these continents, upping the world tension severly.
2003: Oil supplies stop coming from the Middle East as it is ravaged by war. In panic Turkey and Iran declares war, both wanting to secure the rest of the Middle East to profit from it’s resources.
2004: People’s Republic of China forcefully retakes Taiwan and Invades it’s neighbouring country. With the exception of India. The Scandinavian Union is formed between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Papa new Guinea and New Zealand volunteerily joins the Australian Pacific Coalition as self governing states and immediately end’s up in war with Indonesia.
2005: As the world tension has gone through the roof, a swarm of global conflict erupts. People’s Republic of China annexes North Korea, and soon after invades the Indochina territories as well as Japan and South Korea.
The Russian Federation annexes Belarus, Ukraine and invades Poland and the rest of the Baltic States.
The United States threatens Canada to join as it’s 51 first state and in fear of a forcefull annexation Canada joins as the US declares war on Mexico with goals of annexing it.
Germany and France picks up old fudes and starts with the eventual border skirmishes and suprise artillery barrages.
The United Kingdom invades Ireland and annexes it, as well as it declares war on the Scandinavian Union by taking Greenland and Iceland.
Brazil offers it’s neighbouring country to join it in a United South American Coalition, as they all refuse Brazil invades them.
2007: The Baltic States, Poland, Moldova and Romania is annexed by the Russian Federation, leaving most of said nations in ruins after two years of war. As the Russian Federation is busy with Europe. The Scandinavian Union ceases the moment and invades Russia through Finland.
The United States sends forces to Japan to use it as a staging ground to retake Korea and invade China, landing in Busan, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
Pakistan and India, who have somehow managed to remain at peace for so long falls under the pressure declares war.
2008: At the start of the year, a civil war errupts in Russia, the Communist Party takes ups arm with the intention of reforming the Soviet Union. By the end of the year Russia is split up between too many fronts and in a rush decision, they launch nuclear weapons at Sweden’s east coast and the shared borders between Norway and Finland with the intention splitting up the Scandinavian Union, leaving them devestated so Russia can focus on other fronts.
With the first nukes launched, Pakistan and India unloads their arsenal at eachother, before long every major nation on earth launches their arsenal of nuclear weapons at their enemies. The Final War started in 2008 and ended in the same year. Out of the ahses rises the survivors, along with new monstrosities, possibly worse than humans.
World Divided, in the era we play in takes place 40 years after the Final War. 2048 to be exact.
Out of the hotzones of the nuclear impacts new species rise up, more deadlier, brutal, ugglier and smellier than anything before.
The throne of top on the food chain is now brutally challenged by these new creatures of the new world.
These Mutants often seek food and will settle close by a food source, such as humans.
Humans live scattered all over the earth now, some are forming bigger factions and nations, however most reside in old towns and parts of cities, boarded up and walled off from the horrors of the outside.
Despite their protecton though even big town communities sometimes falls to mutant attacks.
Of course as if that wasn’t bad enough, you still have the equal monstrous blood thirsty monsters like the mutants, your fellow human. Raider and bandit gangs roam freely all over as there is no organized law enforcements to deal with them. They pray on the weak and take what they want, killing without resent.
These guys are part of the administration team, and help the op with rules, decisions and may answer any questions you might have amongst other various things.
Current GMs: RickVIce, Slim Charles, Taggart.
This is where you come in.
There is a variety of options too choose from here.
Your faction can basically be anything from a rising nation to a single character living in the new world.
You could have a group of people that wander from place to place and do mercenary work for money and supplies, you can do this with 1 character if you want.
You could attempt to be some sort of new company or a group inside an already established player faction.
You can have a raider or a bandit group if you want.
You can work from being a 1 man survivor to having a warband of mercenaries or raiders, and/or eventually build your own nation. Let your imagination loose.
If you’re unsure of what you want to play as is allowed or not, ask. Don’t assume.

This list is subject to be changed and/or extended.
This is not a list of all the mutants out there, this list contains only the most common of mutants. You can try to make up your own mutant with characteristics and a uniqness from the regular mutants. I do ask that you forward it to me via PMs neatly and tidy. I’d rather not look through a list full of suggestions, try not to represent something to me that isn’t finished. And if they get approved they will be a mutant that resides in the local area of your faction, but if they seem really great to me or people really seem to love them they can become a part of the global list.
There is a channel in the discord with mutant information where information on all the mutants will be available.
Starting the global list:
**The Behemoth. **
The Behemoth earns it’s name by being a gigantic mutant that roams the new world.
By the looks of it, it seems to once have been a human. And as humans it has varying behaviour and aggresivness.
The Behemoth is very territorial, and will rarley would outside it’s territory which usually spands for a kilometre or so.
Some have been known to be very aggresive while others have simply observe humans before walking off.
Whenever they meet another one of it’s kind they will most likley end up in a brawl and fight eachother off.
It’s fighting habits seems to be picking up objects by the size of cars and throw them at their enemies and pick up trees, lightpoles or even tank turrets, basically whatever it can use as a club.
The Digger, as you can imagine is known for digging tunnels. They live and breed underground, preferably somewhere moist. However they are known to come up out of the ground and take sunbaths.
The Digger often works in packs and upon spotting pray they will attempt to burry themselves or tunnel towards it and ambush it from beneath. If a Digger gains the upper hand on you it can kill you the second it’s scorption like claw snatches you, however they often drag their victims back to their nests to feed. Despite the danger and tough behavour of the Digger, it doesn’t take a lot of put one down. A close range shotgun round or a couple of rifle rounds will do the trick easily, and as they work in packs they tend to retreat if most of their pack members are defeated.
Stage 1. Induvidual retains every human trait, with the exception of skin drying up and paling, as well as hair loss.
Stage 1’s are often shunned upon and will be cast out of communities if not right out executed.
Seeing as the Stage 1’s are prone to being outcast, a lot will hold grudges and become warlords of Bezerker raiders.
The time between Stage 1 and proceeding to Stage 2 can be from a week to several decades, however only a few remains Stage 1 for long and will most likley turn within a month.
Extra details was requested by Redcoat the cockfuzzler.
Stage 2. Induvidual is able to communicate still, as well as operate vehicles and weaponry. However the induvidual lacks very little common sense and logic skills and will often enter a state of frenzy upon being attacked, attacking or by simply spotting something that might be food or something to kill.
The frenzy might lead them to killing themselves by for example running directly at armed humans, bigger mutans or driving of a cliff.
Stage 2 Bezerkers can be controlled by a strong Stage 1 Bezerker, making excellent frenzied soldiers in a warband, unafraid of injury or death.
Stage 3. The induvidual has lost any former sense except for the need to feed, they are able to stumble around and maul at enemies, however they are slow and usually easy to evade unless in tight spaces or they are presented in a high numbers.
Stage 3 Bezerkers are usually rounded up by Stage 1 and Stage 2 Bezerkers to be used as cannon fodder, to tire and deplet defenders munitions, allowing the Stage 2 frenzied Bezerkers to attack with ease. This strategy is how the most infamous Bezerker Raiders are able to raid entire towns.
Players will be able to play as a Stage 1 Bezerker character if they wish.
They can also have a small group or community of Stage 1 Bezerkers.
However it is unlikley it would grow significant. As the Bezerkers are seens as scum and raiders by most, as well as most Stage 1’s will proceed to Stage 2 eventually.
Players are also able to play as a Bezerker warclan/raider gang.
Some more info on the thread and the community itself.

The same rules that applies to Espionage Wars apply here, although with the exception of some of the gameplay rules. If you’re unsure which don’t be afraid to ask.
