RISE AFTER THE FALL: ARCADIA. Part 1. Beginnings.
After the chaos of the 2nd American Civil War, the once grand nation of the United States of America, became a house divided against itself, splinted and fractured.
From the ashes of the United States, new nations formed. One such nation formed in what was formerly the North Western United States, consisting of the former states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and everything West of Great Falls Montana. Arcadia.
(Above is the flag of Arcadia). It is located in what was formerly a small town in Portland Oregon, the capital building formerly being a High School where Don Garcia was the gym teacher of. During the chaos of the Civil War, the majority of the town would seek refuge within the school during the firebombing campaigns.
(Arcadia High, sometime before the firebombing campaign). As the days turned into months, and the chaos in the Midwest and East coast worsen, Don Garcia would find himself taking charge of the situation, organising hunting parties and scavengers to raid the abandoned stores for food, water, medical supplies and weaponry.
(An image of Don Garcia, taken during a formal meeting with President Warden) Overtime, a type of government began to form within Arcadia High, with Mr Don Garcia finding himself in charge.
21 November 1968 - Col Vladimir Komarov of the Imperial Russian Aerospace Force becomes the first man to walk on the moon. Here he is seen having deployed a experiment package to collect data from the lunar surface after his departure. Komarov would later write in him memoirs that his 25 hours alone on the moon were at once the most fulfilling of his life, as well as the most lonely.

Isn’t Nyarlathotep a creation of H. P. Lovecraft?
it was just a joke,
RISE AFTER THE FALL: ARCADIA. Part 2. Frontier War.
Arcadia would face many threats, including bandits, rouge military squads, and armed militias such as the New Frontiersmen.
(The New Frontiersmen preparing for an armed attack) The New Frontiersmen, before the fall had over 300 members, mostly in the midwest. They at first were formed to maintain order during the war, but would wind up becoming a group of armed marauders, especially when Rick Banner, a former US Marine took control of the group.
Arcadia would resist their attacks and fight back.
(A photo taken during a siege) The Arcadians would find themselves looting gun stores, military and police barracks, and even stealing from the New Frontiersmen's camp.
(A former US soldier and a child during a run in with the NF) Another tactics used my Garcia, albeit a controversial one, was the use of teenagers, and even children.
A group of Arcadian Teenagers, some of which were even taught by Garcia himself, back when he was the PE Teacher at Arcadia High.
Excerpts from the God Wars: Part II, the Norse-Olympian War & Attempting Peace
The Olympian/Greek God of the Sky and Thunder aka the head of the Olympians, Zeus, does battle with the Norse God of Thunder, Thor.
The Norse-Olympian War started when the chief Olympian, Zeus knocked up Freyja the Norse goddess associated with love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, seiðr, war, and death. When confronted by Freyja, Zeus refused to take responsibility for his actions.
Angered over this, the Norse Thunder God Thor went to Mount Olympus, home of the Olympians, and called out Zeus to do battle with him. Zeus initially refused and this caused Thor to attack him in his own home, this prompted the other Olympians to attack Thor. Pretty soon, the Aesir (Norse Pantheon) came to aid Thor. Thus the Norse-Olympian War had begun.
Jesus of Nazareth waits in the deserts of Egypt for an audience with the Egyptian Sun God/Creator God, Ra, to hopefully bring about an end to the calamitous God Wars.
Ra appears before Jesus to start the talks for peace.
For the record I'm not sure how many more of these I'll actually wind up doing. I probably cover some other factions/events next.

RISE AFTER THE FALL: ARCADIA. Part 3. Heroes of Arcadia.
Hector Garcia, the son of Don Garcia. He is considered charismatic, nobel and considered a key figure in Don Garcia's cabinet during the early days of Arcadia, along with his future wife, Lucy Dowding, both of them serving as military advisors as well as forming the night watchmen. Hector and Lucy were also known for their almost "Bohemian" lifestyle, constantly cheating on each other, and having affairs behind each others backs.
Lucy Dowding, the wife of Hector Garcia and currently the Arcadian ambassador to the UK. Lucy, having lied about her age, would become a journalist for an online news site, reporting on the crisis in the United States. She would also co find the "Ministry of Public Security".
Franklin Murdock, formerly the leader and co founder of the New Frontiersmen. After a falling out with the NF, he would find himself traveling to Oregon along with Dr Abigail Reynolds, a burn victim nicknamed "Phoenix", along with a group of others, including Liz Hudson and her grandfather. He would collaborate with Arcadia before traveling Eastward after the Frontier War, after destroying the group he once founded. He would eventually rebuild the group, learning from the mistakes of the past.
Dr Abigail Reynolds was a post fall doctor, who was also known for being bisexual, and a friend of Samantha Hudson, the mother of Liz Hudson. During the crisis, she would form a romantic relationship with a burn victim nicknamed "Phoenix", despite even knowing Phoenix' gender. She would save many lives during the Frontier War.
One of the view known photos of Phoenix. It is to this day unclear whether Phoenix was male or female.
Interesting. Now where do Hindu/Chinese deities fit into all of this?
That'll come in part III.
