    Land of Confusion:
    Genesis



    When the bombs dropped on that fateful day over a century and a half ago not every soldier of the mighty American Army was fighting overseas in the atomic power blitzkrieg's of Europe and East Asia. Some were back home helping to maintain order in the war torn west coast, training or gearing up for their next deployment, unaware that the nation they swore to protect would die in an instant. One such band was Lieutenant Colonel Alex Mason's and 502nd heavy infrantry battalion, having been deployed back to the states for retraining with thd M-27 series power armor in the Arizona desert when the bombs dropped.

    Watching helplessly as Flagstaff was obliterated in nuclear fire Mason made a promise to himself, a promise that his men and their descendants would carry on to this day, never to let the horrors of the apocalypse happen again. With the chain of communication gone and chaos sweeping through the lands of America it fell to Mason alone to keep his men alive. As they made their way through the desert on their long march to the supposed safety of the New Mexico El Vado Bunker complex, an old staging ground that army had used in their push to drive out the Sino-Soviet invaders. Taking in whoever they could on their journey but more often than not being forced to drive them away at gun point, simply not having enough resources at hand to care for them and theirselves. Arriving at El Vado they had found what at first glance appeared to be simply another band of survivors had taken refuge within the complex. Only for them to soon discover to their horror that these survivors were Cannibals, caging and slaughtering their former neighbors for. Disgusted by the sheer inhumanity of what they discovered they slaughtered the monsters in human guises to the last and liberated the prisoners. It was that day that they were no longer the 502 and became the Sentinels of the Wasteland.

    The M-13 power armor first introduced in the Liberation of San Francisco it would prove devastatingly against the urban defenders. Becoming the mainstay of Sentinels of the Wasteland, being slightly more common amongst their ranks than the M-27.

    Over the generations the Sentinels dug in a consolidated their position while the world was consumed in the deathly grip of nuclear winter. Sending out scouting parties and even the occasional expedition into the wider wasteland in search of valuable pre Armageddon technology. Partially to help preserve it, to make sure that the knowledge of the past isn't forgotten but also to keep it out of the wrong hands, they've scene what happens when say some hopped up tribal gets his hands on a cash of machine guns enough times to know what happens. With the Sentinels believing that it was the irresponsible use of technology in the hands of selfish, violent men that doomed the world to nuclear Armageddon. Viewing it as their responsibility to prevent anything like WW3 and the Apocalypse from ever happening again, seeing themselves as the noble knights of the wasteland defending the weak and defenseless.

    Life within the Sentinels is strictly regimented under the leadership of the Council of Elders and their grandmaster. With every member of the Sentinels from a fresh faced initiate to the greatest of the elders living by a strict code of honor, first codified by Alex Mason within the Sentinel Codex. Recently however they've found themselves growing more laxed in terms of recruitment with the encroaching forces of the mutant army, as the two mighty forces clash in the post apocalyptic desert. With them now being willing to recruit any able bodied and willing to join their ranks against the mutated abominations. The majority ending up amongst the ranks of the grunts, the standard infantry of Sentinels equipped with the same standard combat armor and assault rifles their ancestors most likely used in WW3. Though those few recruits who truly show exceptional skill and promise are slated for the chance to join the ranks of the Sentinel Knights and dawn the Sentinels prized power armor, going into battle with the most prized energy weapons of the Old War World. Yet still there is talk amongst the leadership that this may not be enough that it may be time to call for those distant outposts that were established by those brave expeditions generations ago or even approach the much loathed city of Vega. Though fortunately they've been able to count on the Rangers to fight by their side against this threat.

    I'm feeling that I probably could have done better on the Sentinels. Wonder if I should redo them or not.

    A photo taken of the influential Santa Claus during one of his few interviews in December of 1985. Many have raised questions as to how he has managed to deliver toys to children all around the globe for over centuries, with many raising the theory that Santa is either multiple people or possibly process regeneration powers, similar to the fictional character Doctor Who. Either way he is a warm, friendly humanitarian who wishes good will for all.​

    I mean Santa being a time lord would make sense with the slay being a TARDIS and the sack being bigger on the inside. Wait speaking of the Doctor this gives me and idea.

    Why do I picture Santa being a mix of his incarnations from the movies Rise of the Guardians and Klaus?

    Work in progress...

    Land of Confusion:
    Genesis


    With the atomic fallout that engulfed the world when the bombs dropped, coupled with the mass die off of flora & fauna and the mutagenic particles in the air new, often deadly forms of wildlife have arisen to claim the wasteland in the past hundred and fifty years. One of the most beneficial of these creatures is the Worthog, descended from domestic pigs, having developed various cancerous growths and cyst growths over their skin in the last century and a half of mutation. That while not beneficial in the wild can be easily removed without harming the main body. Providing human villages and settlements across the North American wastes to an easy source of sustainable meat, capable of being harvested almost daily without killing the pig. First being adopted by the various semi agrarian tribes of the more mountainous regions of the American Wastes it has since risen to being a staple food for most societies in North America. With the raider tribes even going so far as to process the harvested fat into fuel for their war rigs.
    20191201_230922.jpg


    Yet another creature of the post apocalyptic wasteland of the mid 22nd century would be the Las Cruces Lizard. First encountered on the outskirts of the namesaked New Mexican ruins the Las Cruces lizard, commonly believed to be descended from the pre Armageddon gilla monster, is a large omnivorous reptile, standing roughly three times larger than the pre apocalyptic horse. Local scavengers and tribesman soon discovered the creature could be easily domesticated as a mount animal, finding the creature to be well suited for the post apocalyptic deserts of the South west. Being easily able to traverse rocky terrain, relatively easy to feed, required comparatively little water, capable of carrying the supplies of several traditional pack animals and even able in helping their masters in fighting off bandit attacks, being fierce creatures when provoked. Leading them to becoming the primary riding animal of the southwest and neighboring regions.

    Though unfortunately most creatures of the post apocalyptic world are far more dangerous to humans than beneficial. Non more so apparent than the Hellzard, commonly believed by the superstitious to be a demon spawned from nuclear hellfire to punish mankind. Is a massive bipedal carnivorous reptile and the predominant alpha predator of the North American wastes. Commonly hunting in packs of six to a dozen these nightmarish creatures can be found from the outskirts of LA to as far as New York, possessing claws capable of tearing through the armored plating of a ww3 era armored car and an absolutely horrific resilience, capable of shrugging of most firearms, with nothing short of an old world 50. Cal or elephant gun being able to kill them. Though that is not their most dangerous trait with those few brave researchers who have managed to observe them and live noting they have a disturbing level of intelligence, with packs of Hellzards deliberately herding prey towards pits that they have dug themselves, laced with sharpened sticks or scavenged spears and covered up before hand and even intentionally leaving injured prey alive, knowing they can use it as bait to lure more prey to them. Often going onto all fours to chase them down faster.
