The year is 2053, and humanity is miles away from where it was just half a century earlier. Mutated monsters are on the prowl, most of the animals and produce in the world is gone, and the atmospheric conditions are incredibly out of sync. Electric storms, acidic rain that burns human flesh, and hot hot days, cold cold nights. The acid rain does not affect the concrete or metals around the city really however, or hasn't had time to yet. Public water sources are clean but water out in nature is contaminated. Due to the lack of resources, cannibalism is not uncommon. . During these slim times, rogue scavenger groups began forming. Anarchy became the norm, and large groups of rough and tough survivors began killing the mutants they could and those unvaccinated that had supplies. There are individual survivors, or surviving families, but they hardly ever go out because of all the risks. This roleplay is set in the Midwest town of Rosen
, a college town that was multicultural and had a population of about 50k. Resources are scarcer than other places, and more plentiful than others
Following World War 3, the United States government and their allies created a chemical, atmospheric weapon. Unfortunately, it could not be controlled. Soon, acid rain and other conditions threatened everyone in the world. To combat it, a sort of super serum was developed and marketed as a vaccine against the rain and the only side effects? Making you stronger in every way. Many people who believed their governments and all newborns were given the vaccine. Everything was fine for about 5 years. Then people began to change. Their IQ went down. Their muscles bulged and their eyes milked over. Their hearing became acute but their reasoning dipped to an animalistic level. They began killing (and sometimes raping and killing) people unvaccinated on the streets so that even more died

Canned food is the best thing you can find, and the air is completely breathable when there is no rain or storms so gas masks and such things are unnecessary.
It's 2053 so more advanced ballistic weaponry is available but not too much so. No lasers either.
Greenhouses and roofed farms and barns are the greatest, rarest treasures you can find, and most have already been raided.
The creatures do NOT have thickened skin, and have been killed with weapons such as bows and crossbows, but guns are the preferred weapon. Bombs are quite effective as well. Swords would do no good, because unless you throw it, you’d be too close and likely die in the process of using one.
Because their eyes have milked over, they are not the most observant, and if quiet, one can sneak right by them. Their hearing is above average though and will hear almost anything. They are very dumb. Their vocal chords have thicken and they can only grunt, and can communicate with each other using such grunts, but not very well. They have not been known to work in packs. They have very crooked teeth, extreme hair growth, and hardened nails that are long and thick like claws. They cannot breed, but their lifespans will be longer than the average human, and they will attempt to ‘breed’ humans often.
