Wasteland: Frozen Struggle (Reboot OOC)
No one really knows what happened. Some say it was the result of some super weapon went wrong , others a reverse form of global warming, a few will tell you it was an act of God.
Whatever the reason the earth was steadily transformed into a second ice age. Scientists who saw this coming were able to build special generators able to keep a climate warm. A city is built upon the location of the generators and encased in a dome. With the federal government destroyed during the first days of the cold ;The very rich and powerful are then moved to the dome and the poor are forced to live in colonies outside of the dome forced to scrap out livings in the frozen wasteland and practically treated as slaves by the inhabitants of the city. This continues for 7 decades until a rebellion group suddenly appears. The group known as "Asgard" is a guerrilla attack group that attacks and steals from Capital trade routes and attack their military outposts. Most consider them to be a myth as they disappear like ghost into the ice and snow and the very few who see them rarely live to tell about it.
There are mechs developed by capital scientists as a part of their military. This fact is very important for my first planned story arc.
The change in climate has brought back previously extinct creatures like Mammoths, sabertooth tiger and even some forms of dinosaurs( they have adapted to the change in climate.) Some species of animals adapted to survive the ice age ex: Wolves are now a lot larger then normal and have white fur to blend in with their surroundings.
Technology is a mix of modern and futuristic. Most weapons are modern and things like snowmobiles and even motorboats still exist. Things like Mechs, the generators, and other odds and ends would be futuristic. I would govern things like whether or not some newer futuristic tech comes along through RP and whether or not players would get their hands on it.
All the members of Asgard have a codename based off of Norse Mythology. No real reason for this it just makes everything sound more badass XD
Enemy list- Will be updated
Draugr- The most common type of Capital soldier. Usually carry assault rifles and pistols. Draugr is their nickname given to them by Asgard. Named after a type of undead creature in Norse mythology.
Eksitaja- The capital's elite sniper unit. They are very few because of the fact that capital soldiers are very unused to living in the Waste and as such very few make it through the intense training the few that do however are very deserving of the praise they receive and are very good at what they do. They're only drawback is that they are so skilled in sniping that they are practically useless in close range. Named for an evil Norse spirit.
Jotunn- Capital heavy troops. They are equipped with heavy armor and machine guns, shotguns, or rocket launchers. Jotunn are actually the father of The Excaliber project. They're forces are consisted entirely of children of the Waste who were taken from their home at a young age sometimes even at birth and brainwashed into the Capital's army as cheap forces. Because of this Jotunn are more resilent to the Waste than either Draugr or Eksitaja but due to their brainwashing and lack of education they aren't very smart.
Valhalla-http://th00.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/...ed-d4uilrs.png The fortress hideout of Asgard. Originally one of the first labs created during the beginning of The Cold it's location was hit especially hard during the event causing it to be abandoned. The scientist were so quick to relocate that they left behind a lot of equipment and weapons including one of the generators used in the Capital. The base is hidden in land considered uncharted to the Capital.
