A Journey To Truth
MAN OF SIN/ Chronicles Of The Apocalypse: A dark tale of intrigue, action, and elaborate sci-fi adventure.
A time of great turmoil, has come into the world. A time of civil strife and war, this world has never known. A time when babes, still dwelling in the womb; begin to lash out, at their mothers. Freak storms erupt on the land, laying waste, and then dissolving into nothingness; as if it never were.
Disease and famine rage in all parts of the globe. Yet, there still were pockets of great prosperity; indifference; and vice. This shame was shrouded by gleaming fortressed cities: large metropolises of promise, which can not be kept.
In the regions, encompassing these walled citadels; were processing plants, warehouses, and monolithic factories. In the sewers, swamps, and marsh lands, one would find mutants. These rejected are the refuse, from government and corporate sponsored super soldier programs: Men and women of honor, literally thrown to the wind. They loose everything: their families; their status; and ultimately, their humanity. They know nothing but hatred and revenge. Revenge against the system that created them; used them; then forgotten them.
In the old farming districts, and forests; dwell throw backs, to a more desolate time. On once abundant tracts of land, are vast refuge camps; littered with slime ridden shanties, filled with the hidden horrors of slavery.
All of the above, and more; best describe the world, … just before its end.
