And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
And the kings of the earth and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men and every bondman, and every free man hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains; —Revelation 6:12 & 15
On the Radio:
Commanche Jane: “This is KBAD, badlands radio, the last entertainment on Earth. I’m your Dead Zone diva Comanche Jane. We’ll get back to the music after a sponsored message from Edmont—I mean Enoch’s own Deacon Eugene Armfield. What on tap for today o’ Grand Inquisitor?”
The Deacon: “Shad-up, you mutie-lovin’ whore a’ Babylon! This is my time! Good survivors, I welcome this weekly opportunity to speak to you a’ the evils that walk our world. You may think you’ve survived the apocalypse, but I assure you God ain’t through with us sinners by a damn sight! This is the 11th Hour, the last round in a knock down drag out brawl between our Lord above and the Abominations from the darkest pits of Hell! And still there are those who choose to openly defy the will a’ God and side with the Devil’s minions! The following names have come to me from my agents south of the righteous city of Enoch. They represent a fraction of the traders and merchants known to deal with filthy mutants to collect and sell their wares! “Honest” Ernie Ankerburg, we’ve got our eye on you mutie-lover! Ted and Zola Armstrong, known to sell goods to a group of muties in Lethbrigde that calls ‘emselves the Slashers! ::fades to static"
The game started with a group of wastelanders on the road headed east in a beat-up Buick. They come upon a miserable settlement called Foresaken, wherein they witness a group of gangers running off a band of mutant scavvies, who turn out to be walkin’ dead posing as such to lure the gangers in close. As the feast begins, the wastelanders try and make a run for it, but get boxed in by road debris. They’re forced to fight it out with the walkin’ dead and then decide to scavenge the ruins for supplies.
