Deathlands

   The world blew out in 2001.
   On January 20th, 2001, Russia and the US and their allies engaged in an exchange of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons. Both nations, along with the rest of the world, were devastated; humanity was badly culled, but not completely wiped out. There were survivors, and these survivors began to rebuild, though there were many obstacles - persistent radiation, radical changes to geography and climate, and mutated creatures and humans.
   Humans are nothing if not perseverant, though; three generations and 100 years after World War III, towns have been established, feudal baronies created, and traders have begun to travel the land, bringing news, goods, and hope to those without. Things are not the same, though, and never will be again. To those inhabiting the former lands of the United States and Canada, their new home is now called Deathlands.

Outlanders

   One hundred years later, mankind has achieved some form of civilization. The Nine Barons have taken control of the United States and divided it up into nine different baronies, but small scattered villes still abound in the Outlands, the areas outside of the Barons' influence. All is not as it seems, though - the barons are really human-alien hybrids bent on spreading their domination over all mankind. A new group of warriors has arisen to oppose the barons and learn about the truth behind the nuclear holocaust and the history of humanity as a whole.
