Lately, I have delved into reading a magnificent novel called Dies A Fire. It raises and interesting question taht I am eager to see how people would react to. SO here is my proposition.

Have you ver thought of hwat would happen if all teh lights were to go out at once. All the Engines were to quit working. And all the Guns were to quit firing. have you seriously evr sat down and pondered on what this world would be like if we were stripped of EVERY form of Modern Technolgy, and forced to restart in a pre Dark Ages Time.

In A Dies teh Fire, the author takes this to heart and explains how in an unexplainable phenomenom, the whole world was catse into such a period at one sudden instance. Plains Fell, fires broke out, water pumps quit pumping, violence errupted, and food began to rot.

Well I am curious to see what people come up with. Pick anywhere in the US Rp from the minutes before the change and onto until we see it fit to end. Make alliances. Build Clans, Kingdoms, Empires!!! Resort to Cannablism, or fight the deadly Eaters. Survive through plagues and bandits. Your choice forge your own path. Just do it without being unreasonable and without technology.

So what do you think???

Once again I love your idea... I have always wished life as whe know it would revert back to a more primitive time, so i guess S get to write out my dream. ^_^

This one is gonna be much different than the Angels of Oblivion, in the apsect taht their is more freedom, less restrictions and background. Only rules is no true explanation for the "The Change" and keep the timezone equivilant of 6:15 Pm March 17th, 1998. Meaning that if you don't live in the Timezone Oregon and Idaho are in, than you can change the time to be what it would be if you were in your timezone.
