Since the Corruption systematically wiped every internet-connected-computer clean, data reconstruction specialists have tackled piecing together the Children of Nostradamus’ involvement in the destruction of the eastern seaboard in the Free Republic of America. The Church of Nostradamus claims in the 21st century, these “gods” possessing incredible power were a common occurrence and harbingers of goodwill and peace. Credible first hand accounts have been scarce making it difficult to corroborate their existence, leaving them to remain little more than the deities of an emerging religion. I believe they may very well be the source of the event that created the Isolation, devastating the capitol all the way to Quebec. I also fear they may have be responsible for Corruption itself. The answers I’m seeking can only be found in the Isolation, and that’s where I must journey…

The Isolation stretches from the former District of Columbia to Maine. Fall out from Nuclear radiation rendered huge sections of the East Coast uninhabitable resulting in what was once called the “Outlands.” After the Corruption destroyed all digital records, it’s remains unclear if the area is still irradiated or if another circumstance prevents humans from repopulating the region. The government has declared the area unfit for humans and frequently patrol the borders. Stretching the length of the Free Republic, automated detection systems prevent any approach by land or sea. What led my father to believe there are answers inside the world’s largest quarantined land mass? I must know.
