End of Days Introduction
Pensylvania...what a s**t show. You and a large group of others have been walking along a deserted highway for miles. Nothing to see for hours except broken cars, cracked pavement, and lots of trees.
You're moving to New Eden. A settlement in the ruins of Pittsburgh. Apparently its been thriving, although similar settlements have thrived before only to be wiped out by a massive Angel attack. None the less you march on. Finally you reach the entrance to the city. There are tons of armed guards at the entrance, all members of the Lawson Militia, but one person stands out. A young girl with robotic limbs eating a sandwich with her companion bird. She appears to be in charge.
As the group approaches she looks up from her sandwich, lets out a disgusted sigh, and rolls her eyes. You expect her to be snobby but she suddenly jumps to her feet and with a bubbly personality she says.
"Hello! Welcome to New Eden. Name is Captain Sokino! Governor Lawson put me in charge of border enforcement after the last guy got shot by Captain Scarlett, but im not supposed to tell you about that!" The entire group exchanges confused looks amongst themselves.
"Moving on!" Captain Sokino says realizing her mistake. "I heard that we had a big group coming today and boy were they right! You are all welcome to stay in New Eden provided you register by signing your name in this book," One of the guards opens a notebook with names scribbled in," and get your picture taken!" Another guard steps forward with an old I-phone.
Each of you signs your name and gets a picture taken one at a time while Captain Sokino continues to talk. "You might be thinking that our registration system is kind of lack luster and you would be right! It is rife with problems and is easily abused! Again im not supposed to tell you about that!" The guards seem not to notice. Her saying more than she is supposed too is clearly a common occurrence. "While in New Eden you will be expected to follow the rules. If you dont follow the rules you might get arrested, or sometimes just shot in the head! No stealing, no murdering, no kidnapping, no blackmailing,, no assaulting, no disturbing the peace, no destruction of property, and absolutely no raping! I tried to get Governor Lawson to add no swearing to that list but he wasn't convinced. Oh well!"
With everyone's name signed and picture taken you are allowed to enter New Eden. Pittsburgh was a big city, but New Eden is only a small part of the city.
As soon as you enter you see several food set up, as well as various people going about their day. Directly ahead for all to see is a billboard cluttered with copies of only two posters, as though they are fighting a war to be the only one seen. One poster is for the Scarlett Raiders with a location of a recruiting station further in the city. (2). The other poster is for the Lawson Militia with a recruiting location posted for them as well. (3)
Standing in the corner of the square is priest, preaching loudly. Several people listen intently although most simply ignore his ramblings.
"My brothers and sisters! The Lord has made his presence know to us. He has sent his Angels to judge the sinners and anoint his worthy! The existence of God is now undeniable, all we can do is act according to his will. He will anoint his chosen, and punish the sinners! We are but his children but before we can reach the Father, we must be judged worthy by the Mother. However, this time is not without its challenges. Just as God has sent his Angels, Satan too has sent his demons. Evil beings raised from the dead to walk the Earth on unholy feet. The Damned are the Spawn of the Devil and must be avoided at all costs. For as their bodies have been revived, their souls have already been judged and still reside in the Eternal Lake of Fire! Those who are remorseful repent, and join me in prayer now for it is not too late to be saved!"
You have heard of the Angel Hunters, and the criminal element Dragons Sons, but unsurprisingly they are not openly recruiting. The Angel Hunters are an elite organization and only recruits a very select few, and the Dragons Sons opperate in the shadow. It will take some effort to find either of these organizations.
(You are now free to roam around and interact with NPC's. Join guilds and stuff. Ill try to advance quickly but im moving to a new state this weekend so I dont know how fast advancements will be. Here is a link to this scenario's discord. This will be the best way to communicate with me. )
