Announcing the Post-Apocalyptic Custom Contest
In the wake of the four horsemen we have the aftermath of the apocalypse. Your apocalyptic disaster could be the after math of a nuclear war, biological outbreak, asteroid strike, robots going mad, or anything else you can conjure up. Let’s leave out the obvious Terminators please. There are plenty of books, movies, and RPG games to go on. Include a story on what makes your character post-apocalyptic.
The wikipedia definition of Post-Apocalyptic:
Apocalyptic fiction is a sub-genre of science fiction that is concerned with the end of civilization either through nuclear war, plague, or some other general disaster. Post-apocalyptic fiction is set in a world or civilization after such a disaster. The time frame may be immediately after the catastrophe, focusing on the travails or psychology of survivors, or considerably later, often including the theme that the existence of pre-catastrophe civilization has been forgotten (or mythologized). Post-apocalyptic stories often take place in an agrarian, non-technological future world, or a world where only scattered elements of technology remain. There is a considerable degree of blurring between this form of science fiction and that which deals with false utopias or dystopic societies.
