Welcome to The Jungle
The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower. But war never changes.
In the 21st century, war was still waged over the resources that could be acquired. Only this time, the spoils of war were also its weapons: Petroleum and Uranium. For these resources, China would invade Alaska, the US would annex Canada, and the European Commonwealth would dissolve into quarreling, bickering nation-states, bent on controlling the last remaining resources on Earth. In 2077, the storm of world war had come again. In two brief hours, most of the planet was reduced to cinders.
A quiet darkness fell across the planet, lasting many years. Few survived the devastation. Some had been fortunate enough to reach safety, taking shelter in great underground vaults. When the great darkness passed, these vaults opened, and their inhabitants emerged to begin their lives again. And from the ashes of nuclear devastation, a new civilization would struggle to arise.
On the Eastern Seaboard, in the ruins of the devastated New York City, Warlords and Raiders, Traders and City States built from the rubble, all work to rebuild civilization or to destroy it. You are from one of these many warring city states. The fate of this concrete jungle may rest on your shoulders, with history changing by your deeds.
But War, War Never Changes
