First, a little bit of background: Click Here
Now, onto the plot:
It's been almost a year and the sky is still dark. The ash and fallout block out the sun and the blue sky with it. Ever since the terrible days, when demons had poured out of the ground and thousands of angels filled the sky, the Earth had been like this. When the demons had first appeared, magic flowed into our world, with many otherworldly beings coming out of hiding. Some sided with the demons, other with the angels, but hardly any held concern for us. The angels had been more focused on containment of Hell's forces than protection, a strategy that would result in countless human casualties. As the fighting spread across the globe, it became obvious that conventional weaponry could not be used against the clashing forces, and entire nations would fall into anarchy and destruction.
The war would finally climaxed with the Fall of Los Angeles, the single most destructive battle in human history. The 'City of Angels' was practically leveled by the intense fighting, and it appeared to be a last stand by the angels. After a week, less than one percent of the city's human population remained alive, and the forces of Heaven were seen retreating from the ruins. Fearing the massive demon presence, the remaining American government authorized a preemptive nuclear strike on the demonic army, with the ensuring blast apparently wiping out Hell's forces there. Similar scorched earth tactics were soon adopted by other governments, but as a consequence of the multiple nuclear detonations, fallout and ash began to fill the atmosphere. Small concentrations of humans still exist, but nearly all unified nations are gone as humanity begins its slow spiral into destruction.
Recently, there have been rumors. In the small villages and settlements still left of the human race, there are now whispers of a place known as the Sanctuary. A place protected by some type of magic, with those inside free of the toxic air of the outside world. Many have wandered, trying to find this place, to know if it truly exists; few have made it alive. Some doubt the safety of this rumored city, as fragments of the demon armies still wander the world, decimated by nuclear attacks and their inability to return to Hell.
Of more concerning matters, something dark is rumored to be forming in Los Angeles. Something that even the demons themselves fear. Many have lost contact with the small settlements in the surrounding the area and all scouting parties sent have never returned. So who are you in this decimated and despair ridden world?Character Application:
