Equilibrium, Chapter 1: Introduction

Allrighty, so here’s the first Chapter of one of the PPCs I’ve been working on. The premise behind this one is that God and Satan got offed in the Final Battle, so now Humans, Angels, and Demons have to learn to live together in a Post-Armageddon world. I’m thinking I’ll make two campaigns for this setting… One closer to the end of Armageddon, and one that takes place after things get vaguely settled down.

The End of Days had started. All sorts of strange phenomena had occurred. Angels and Demons started slugging it out on Earth.

The Four Horsemen- a pack of supernatural sellswords- started wreaking havoc on behalf of both sides of the war.

Two thirds of the world’s natural resources were obliterated in the Meteor Shower that has since been dubbed, “The Wormwood Incident.”

Terrifying creatures started appearing from said fallen Meteorites, amongst other places, and sadistically torturing or slaying anyone they could find.

Men and Women were picking sides in the war. Some were for God and the Angels, and some allied themselves with Satan and the Demons, while still others made a futile attempt to fight both sides or attempt diplomatic relations (with all attempts either being undermined or just failing horribly).

Then, finally, came the Battle of Armageddon. Two mighty armies of great strength and fury, fighting to the death.

Next thing you know, Jehovah and the Usurper made their presences known and started to exchange blows. The clashing of steel, the collision of fists, the fireworks of holy and unholy energy… it was a sight to behold for anyone spectating. But before either of them could gain the upper hand, there was a massive explosion at the heart of the battle. It was later discovered that a radical group known as Humanity’s Legion had hijacked and deployed an experimental nuke where God and Satan had been battling. The leaders of both armies and their front-line soldiers had been miraculously atomized during the event, with nothing resembling an adequate chain of command left remaining in either side.

After the event now known as Equilibrium, everyone had to let things sink in… Humans never got their promised rewards, and the remaining soldiers of both Heaven and Hell were without leaders and without purpose. They realized that the groups had one thing in common:

They all now have to learn to live in a world that has been scorched, ravaged, and irradiated by their own hands.
