The Twisted Earth is rife with violence and hardship. In the last days of The Final War, all manner of atrocities were committed and all of the stops were pulled out as nations used every despicable weapon in their arsenals to destroy their enemies. In the United States, the government unleashed the fury of it's weapons of mass destruction against some of it's own cities, but strangely, the Fertile Crescent was spared the level of devastation wrought on the rest of the land. Technological horrors unseen before or since rained down from the heavens bringing fire, poison, and plague. The earth shuddered, and mankind was broken.
Now, generations have passed, and mankind has once again clambered to the fore, only this time he is not alone. Mutants and monsters created by the tools of the ancients share the realm, and they intend to thrive.
Lying haphazardly between the blasted, irradiated ruins of the east coast and the desolate wastelands of the west, The Fertile Crescent region may be the single best hope for reestablishing some semblance of civilization after the long downward spiral that mankind has endured since The Fall.
Of course, that would require heroes...Stop The White Knights, outwit the fanatical cultists, and secure the Ancients' newly uncovered military complex. A piece of cake right?
