Winter of Discontent (Open. OOC)

We called it the Fire from Heaven.


Like so many days were terrible things happen out of now were it started like any other. People went to work, children went to school, plans for dinner were made. It was just so normal. Not a single person expected it. It was so unexpected, so sudden. The world ground to a halt. The Fire of Heaven came down and ended those days of normality and the birth of a new and alien world.

Do not ask what it was. A gigantic beam of green light descended from the sky, visible from all across the world. It disappeared as soon as it came. Immediately the effect of the Fire took hold. Massive thunderstorms swirled around the globe and electrical anomalies ripped apart the power grids. For the first time in hundreds of years the only light in the night was the twinkling of starlight.

Funny how those that were alive back then longed for those years shortly after the Fire came. Even then the world had changed. Without electricity the modern world was gone. The large cities became desolate waste lands ripped apart by gang wars and food riots, life was tough back then, but at least there could have been a future in that world. The world was dark, but it wasn't cold.

The freeze started a few years after the thunderstorm. Winter came early and summer's started to get short. That's when people got truly desperate. Some banned together, other shed there humanity and became ravenous killers. Famine and cold rule the world where man once stood. A whole generation has grown to adult hood in this new world, never knowing what the old world was like, only knowing the fear, the hunger and the cold.

This is the winter of discontent.


What is this?


Winter of Discontent is a post-apocalyptic role play taking place around thirty years after a mysterious Fire from Heaven caused both a massive power outage and started a new Ice Age. This will primarily be a story driven role play with the players trying to survive an environment that once was familiar but is know alien and hostile and other people. Our story starts on August 3rd 2047. Winter is fast approaching. Will you survive another year, or will you be one of the unnumbered souls who perish?

Locations

Burlington, ND: Burlington is the largest town in the area with a population of around three hundred people. With it proximity to Minot and the air force base Burlington has access to what little materials are left in the city. Unfortunately the closer you are to Minot the more prevalent bandits are.

With the onset of winter the citizens of Burlington are faced with a choice. Leave the town for warmer regions in the south or brave one more winter. This is where most characters will start.
Ruthvile: A small hamlet of 50 people Ruthvile is a stopping of point for groups heading into the far north.
Minot AFB Once an installation for the now dead United States, Minot AFB is a prime target for scavenging groups and bandits. While most of the base has been picked clean, there are still some goods if you look hard enough.
Minot: Once the county seat for Ward county, with a population nearly 50,000 before the Fire. Today it is a sad reminder of what once was and what could have been. Largely abandoned and picked clean be scavengers and nearby settlements for building material. Much of the city has been reclaimed by nature and the never ceasing march of winter.


RULES


1: This is a survival RP, chances are someone is going to die so get used to that idea.
2: My word is law.
3: My co-op's words are also law unless I say other wise.
4: Inactive characters will be killed, probably in an amusing way.
5: If you talk to me before disappearing, rule 4 is void.
6: This is the OOC, keep it civil and on topic.
7: You can be as much of an a-hole in the IC as you want.
8: This rule is here because I like even numbers.

Will be getting a character up soon enough.
To realize that all your life - all your love, all your hate, all your memory, all your pain, it was all the same thing. It was all the same dream, a dream that you had inside a locked room. A dream about bein' a person.

Mostly any small town in ND would be fine. If you want a character who was born from before the Flame came than anything is game.

Name Benjamin Clark
Age 22
DoB 2025
Place of Birth Burlington ND
Appearance Without the guns.
Bio
The generation born in the few years after the Fire came and the lights went out live in the shadow of what once was. Never knowing what that world was like, its ruins are a solemn reminder to what could have been, a resource to be exploited. It was little exception for Benjamin. From a young age most children in Burlington learned how to survive in the harsh new world of the post Flame world. It was no different with Benjamin.

most of the early years of youth were taken up with learning the art of survival. How to preserve food and tell what was poisonous and what was edible. This was the new world, were every day was a struggle to survive. This was the essence of Ben's early life, to live to the next day.

Ben's father was one of the scavengers, people who went around the ruins of the old world gathering whatever may be useful. Building materials were what they mostly brought back, but occasionally there were some relicts of the old world that were found. Weapons, ammo, things that lasted for a long time and could be used.

When Ben was around thirteen his father went on his last scavenging trip. Twelve men left the settlement, six months later only three returned. None of the three survivors went into much detail about what happened to them other then it was bandits. Ben was left without a father, but gained a gnawing curiosity to find out what exactly happened to him.

So Ben joined the scavenger parties. If just trying to survive in Burlington was difficult, being a scavenger was ten magnitudes harder. Bandits and other hostile humans were always there, ever lurking on the horizon. The profits of the scavenger life were slim compared to the risks. But it was necessary to bring back the wood and glass and plastics back to Burlington, without them the greenhouses couldn't be repaired or made and the town would starve.

Ben has killed people, traveled across the state in search of useful material for the town. In all these years he has come no closer to finding out what happened to his father, and nor does he care about that much any more. With every day of his life wrought with danger he had little time to think about the past, let alone the future, it has all been the hear and now that has taken up Ben's life.

This brings been the the current day. Another fruitless scavenger tripe which cost the lives of four of the thirteen members. Winter is closing in earlier than last year, and food is running low. Burlington is faced with a choice, send a party down south or brave one last winter.


*grey is optional
Likes/Dislikes: Likes: Not having to kill people, coming home after a bad scavenger trip, finding useful things while scavenging, a full belly and old world liquor. Dislikes: Having to kill people, being away from home for a longtime, a useless scavenger trip, starving.
Personality: Ben is a quiet person who keeps his emotions to himself, rarely opening himself up to even those that are closest to him. This has lead to Ben having a bit of a volatile temper that will on occasion break the surface of his calm exterior.
Skills: A good shot, a survivalist, limited hand to hand combat.
Equipment: A K98, 5 striper clips with five 8mm FMJ rounds, a bowie knife, three days worth of food and water, a rucksack, extra cloths and an old road flare,

Name Ryan Henderson
Age 36
DoB 2011
Place of Birth Burlington ND
Appearance https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/23 ... bd7658.jpg With black hair
Bio
Born before the Fire from Heaven to Peter and Sarah Henderson in 2011. Ryan grow up living a normal life with his family then it happened, don't ask Ryan what happened he doesn't remember what happened that day. when he woke up it was a week later, he was in a stranger's home and he was told his parents hadn't made it. Being forced to grow up fast he learned to survive in the new world, learning how to light a fire, make and maintain clothing, how to hunt, etc. Starting at the age of 20 he would start doing the job that he would do for the next decade and a half, Scavenging. Going into the ruined and abandoned towns, setting up safe zones to lay down low in when the cold, or other dangers get to be too much. That was around the time he first meet Fred the man that would be his partner for 5 years. He tried to remember those times when he could, like the times they found an entire shopping cart of little debbies, or something closer to his heart when he found his rifle in the basement of some old gun store. Fred eventually dies like a lot of scavengers that go out to far do, caught in a snowstorm dead from hypothermia. Ryan still remembered what his hands, nose, and feet looked like the black, cracked skin, he always wore an extra coat after that. Now Ryan is doing what he does every year, sign up for some big trip to find some large stash of food, wood, extra cloths, anything that can help the people that chose to stay in Burlington remain among the living for just one more winter, and all the winters to come.

*grey is optional
Likes/Dislikes Likes: Exploring buildings, Cigarettes, Whisky, Friendly competition between scavengers. Dislikes: Cats, Cowards (people who turn back from a trip at the first inconvenience) , People born after the Fire that ask too many questions, Snow in his boots.
Personality A jolly man that tries not to let the grim situation he finds himself, though when confronted about something that forces him to remember his past (especially the day of the Fire) he gets very quiet and very serious.
Skills Ok shoot with pistols and modified rifles, Trained and experienced hand to hand and melee combat, 16 years of survival experience in the area.
Equipment GLOCK 17 9mm Safe-Action Pistol 5 magazines, Remington Model 700 SPS Blued Bolt-Action Rifle 3 magazines( Shortened barrel), Machete and crowbar, Backpack, two and a half days worth of food, Flare (1).
RP Sample
"Son come over here for a minute" Ryan heard his father calling for him and walked over to the porch "Now son you know that me and your mother love you very much", his father paused his mother continued "But we have to leave for now we don't know when we'll be back". Ryan looked up his father face and black hair and beard, and his mother red flowing hair they were replaced by a bright white light. He heard something from the sky, the white light became blinding he fell back down the stairs screaming. Then he hit the ground at the bottom

Ryan woke up on the floor screaming, he breathed heavily as he looked up at his bed. He had another nightmare, he got up off his floor and threw his blanket back onto his bed. Throwing on his long johns, pants, shirt, and coat, he also picked up his weapons and some food and put them into his backpack. He shoved his door open, and what a surprise more snow. Walking over to the Scavenger post, to join up with a group planning on heading out Shivering as he was walking he saw one of his friends, Fred Williams a man he had gone on a dozen trips with. He smiled as he walked up to him and began to talk about trips, and old times Ryan's nightmare from his wake up fading away into memory.

wrote a bit more into the bio, going to bed soon will write more into it tomorrow.

Kegan was born a few years after the event that destroyed the world as we knew it. His father a retired soldier now running a bar and his mother a chemist before the event. They managed to hold up at their house which was above their bar until the riots ended. A few years later Kegan was born. His parents knew that things would never be the same so they got their minds on survival, though they still taught Kegan the things he would have learned in school, basic math, reading, writing, etc.

When Kegan reached age 13, he started learning how to defend himself and live off the land, along with chemistry and bartending. Once things started to settle down and people began to live somewhat peaceful lives, Kegan and his dad opened up their bar again. They put high prices on their old world liquors and created moonshine for those who didn't have anything worth the liquor. Kegan would often go out to scavenge supplies to make the greenhouse larger due to the demand in alcohol, do repairs, and trade to others.

Name David Weber
Age 39
DoB 16 OCT 2008
Place of Birth Mayfield,KS
Appearance

Bio
Until the Fire of Heaven, David was well on his way to a life on the wrong side of the law. Petty vandalism, joyriding and other nuisance crimes were his forte. The most recent juvenile court case directed him to participate in a Scared-Straight program at the Underwood Correctional Institution, the local prison. While he was there, the Fire came. The sudden breakdown in the guard’s control of the prison resulted in a prison riot that lasted several days. The youths participating in the program barricaded themselves as the riot progressed.

The riot came to an end when an alliance of surviving prison guards who hadn’t fled and a more moderate faction of the convicts led by a former marine succeeded in taking control. The “New Warden”, as former USMC Gunnery Sergeant John Francis, instituted a harsh system of punishment for anyone who challenged him. With order restored to the prison, John Francis found the youths and helped them try to contact their families. With a number he was unsuccessful, including David. With nowhere else to go, the youths became his wards and he began ensuring their place in the prison’s emerging society.

A jailhouse preacher by the name of Benjamin Veo began giving sermons to the prison calling the Fire of Heaven the Rapture. According to his preaching, the righteous had been called to Heaven and the damned sent to Hell. Those who remained were too weighed down with sin to go to Heaven but were not beyond redemption, that by acts of righteousness they could release themselves from their sins and earn their place in heaven. David found a new meaning to life in the burgeoning Church of Redemption. Within a few years of the Fire the Church had been officially endorsed by Warden John Francis, who worked with the theology of the Church to further socially engineer the population. Three weeks after David turned 18, Warden John Francis declared the formation of the Order of Brothers of Repentance in Mayfield, or the Knights of Redemption. David immediately signed on.

Over the next years the portions of Mayfield nearest Fort Penance, as Warden Francis had renamend the prison, became among the safest with raiders and slavers steering clear lest they run afoul of the former convicts-turned semi-religious military order. David eventually was selected to become one of the KoR’s rangers, soldiers trained directly by the Warden to operate independently away from Fort Penance. While out scouting Mayfield he met a young woman named Katie who was living with a small tribe in a shopping center on the far side of Mayfield from Fort Penance. David would make frequent stops at the shopping center.

Three months ago, a raider band rolled through the east side of Mayfield. The shopping center was one of the targets they hit. David arrived to find the aftermath two weeks after the attack. He informed the Warden and, against orders, went in pursuit of the raider band. Although pursuit of the raiders has remained his primary focus, he has been periodically distracted by others in need on the road.

Personality David is a paladin of the wastes. His code is iron bound, and he does not allow breaches to stand before him. Raiders and slavers are the lowest of the low and deserve any punishment he decides for them (often death, though if he has time and assistance, crucifixions are not an uncommon decision). While he prefers to strategize and approach any given situation tactically, he does not give a second thought of putting his own life at risk to save an innocent. He is extremely religious and a devout adherent of the Church of Redemption.
