The World of Tomorrow isn't the proud beacon of human achievement that society had planned for. No, instead it is the dark dystopia of ruin, dread, and constant disappointment. Life is lived day by day, praying to whatever you can hold faith in, that you don't get mauled by a wild mutant or gunned down over a tin of beans.
You can't trust the world, and you sure as hell can't trust the people that live in it.
So, how do you survive?
