Civilizations Fall

image of a burning ruined city in the post apocalyptic tabletop rpg game APOCalypse 2500The Vortex's influence caused what scientists called "retrograde planetary evolution." Massively accelerated continental drift caused tectonic stress leading to huge tsunamis and widespread volcanism. Close on the heels of this devastation came winter, sustained by volcanic ash, it seemed as if it would never end. Crops failed and the world began to starve. War soon followed as humanity fought for what was left. Into this international fray of hover-tanks, tactical nukes, and energy weapons came the arcane sorcerers and their magic wielding armies. The conflict raged for decades until nations finally collapsed and their armies found themselves in the field with nothing left to fight for. Many simply held the ground they stood on and attempt to build a new life; thus giving rise to the feudal world of the 4th century AV. A mythical post-apocalyptic world, built of thousands of small fiefdoms, arcane settlements, and city-states spread across the new super continent of Neo-Pangaea.
