The Earth is recovering from the remnants of a nuclear war in the long past. Eight hundred years or more have passed since the last bombs fell and the Earth’s ecosystems are in recovery.
But things are different. The sheer amount of debris in orbit has caused climatic changes and some of the radiation has given rise to new human powers. Most of humanity died in the initial exchange which occurred in the early 21st century.Some on Earth’s surface survived through perseverance. Some nations managed to seed space with colonies, manned satellites, and even simple one-man reentry vehicles – eloquent testament to the vainglory and futility of former empires.
You are the few who remain to recreate civilization. You are the remnants of Humanity.
