It wasn’t a question of “if” it would happen, it was a question of “when”.

The year is 2065. At a glance, the world seems deserted; there’s no sign of civilization anywhere. Cities that were once thriving and overpopulated now stand in eerie silence.

Fifty years ago, a meteorite struck the planet. It slammed into Greenland, punching a crater the size of New York into the enormous ice cap that blankets the country. As the ice began to melt in the aftermath of the collision, sea levels rose, methane was released from the warming permafrost, and that which we know as “global warming” was kicked suddenly and violently into effect.

The effects on the planet were catastrophic. While droughts, heat waves and forest fires wreaked havoc on some areas of the globe, monsoons, flash floods and tsunamis wiped out life in others. Coastal settlements were swallowed up by the rising sea level, and those at the base of mountains were crushed by extreme wet avalanches as the snow melted and shifted. Tropical disease and mosquito-born illness killed off millions. The entire eco-system began to collapse as wildlife scrambled to keep pace.

Society as we know it collapsed. Countries segregated themselves from one another in a vain, panicked attempt to save themselves. Governments struggled to keep control over their citizens as riots broke out and levels of crime increased drastically. Little by little, society continued to deteriorate as people scrambled pitifully for habitable areas of land, areas that weren’t too wet, too hot or too unstable. New cities were built on this land. Each was individually governed and had no communication at all with other cities or the rest of the world.

the city of haven •

Haven is one of these cities. Formed almost forty years ago somewhere in middle America by a new and corrupt government, it has grown from a small settlement into a large and bustling metropolis. It acts as a sanctuary for over half a million people of various ethnicities, age and social status.

The government has managed to secure complete control over the citizens, ruling with an iron fist. They provide and keep a close hold on all of the electricity, water, food, and any and all other necessities within the city. They allow the rich and powerful to prosper whilst ignoring the suffering of the poor. They are behind the media – printed and televised – and use it as just another means of controlling the people. They draw up all of the laws and are not afraid to punish those who fall out of line and make an example of them. They do as they see fit. Freedom of speech, democracy and “real” justice have become things of the past.

However, things are starting to change. Terrorists and resistance factions are starting to rise up and fight back against their oppressors, demanding democracy and freedom of speech. Organized religion – which at first the government saw simply as another way of keeping order amongst the citizens – is beginning to rally more power than the government feels is necessary and safe. And, to make matters worse, humans with strange, sometimes demonic abilities are beginning to reveal themselves amongst the people of Haven.

As the oppressed citizens start to fight for their freedom, and the government does everything it can to keep a tight hold over them, the city is on the brink of civil war. The only question is... which side are you on?
