Pandora's box

Submitter: kpram
Description: No one was prepared for the mind-shattering horror of what was found in the asteroid belt. The plagues that resulted were actually intelligent energy patterns that devastated the planet. Billions died. Those that remained were 'changed.' Stronger, faster, with an unquenchable optimisim in the face of the future, and in the rebuilding of their race.

Cultural Organization

For whatever reason, there is no significant social interaction. "I am the only survivor I've found in the ruins of New York"

Social Conditions

The society is in the midst of a period of dramatic growth and material progress. Ex: 1920s, 1960s

The power structures which govern the core society have reduced influence in the primary region of the setting.
