Inspiration and Image Board

---------------------------------


It has been 350 years since the world as we know it officially ended in the year 2055. During the late 1900s scientist warned the world about the disasters to come if humanity kept up with the way it was going, but those quiet warnings seemed to fall on deaf ears. In the early 2000s scientist began yelling their warnings to the world, they even had documented proof that the beginning of the end was starting, and if we didn’t all change our gas guzzling, plastic loving ways, we would get to the point of no return. Ice caps melting, plastic garbage filled oceans, oil spills, pointless wars, abnormal heatwaves, plagued crops, and a record number of deadly hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, and wildfires quickly became the new normal. Cities flooded, and others completely sank into the ocean.

Some people listened to the warnings, but recycling and using an electric car could only do so much. Some governments made composting mandatory, and retired gasoline cars, but others said the scientist were exaggerating, and called it global warming and climate change a lie. They were more interested in money and expansion, so they ignored the threats of mother nature, and the environmental experts. By the 2040s it was obvious there was no saving the planet.

Thankfully the scientists of the world, and their supporters understood the world was unsavable, and so shelters where built, knowledge was protected, plants were preserved, seeds stored, important land animals protected, and technologies were created to help the potential survivors. They did what they could to save what was left of the human race. Some other different solutions were thought up. Colonizing Mars, or building a civilian space station was among some of the early ideas, but the tech was not exactly complete yet. Russia, Canada, China, and the USA over a few years had managed to send a total of 3,000 people to the rudimentary Mars research base that had been built in 2033, but by 2051 governments had fallen to the chaos and devastation that was the world now, and no one had contact with Mars.

Mother Nature bit back in a big way, and in 2055 the Big Flood took what little clumps of land the world had left. Humanity started the century with over 7 billion people, and by the end of that century was left with less than 7 million.

The year is now 2405, and the world is 97% water, only the peaks of the highest mountains are what remain from the old land. Over the last 200 years a dusting of tiny islands have cropped up and are mainly used for crops, or city anchors. People do not live on land anymore, as its consider almost holy, and only meant for plants and animals. People still believe there is real land out there, some large wide and vast, unlike the tiny islands, and steep peaks.

There are still a few religions from before the flood floating around the ocean. Newer religions have cropped up and are also around.

Here and there in the smaller communities, like floating villages, are religions based on pre-waterworld fiction and pop culture. For example someone long ago would retell the story of The Avengers and Marvel universe, so now 350 years later there is a small floating village out there who worships Iron man, the hulk, Thor, and so on as real gods who actually did all the things from the stories.

The following are just the religions mentioned in player's Character sheets, and within the IC.
