- In twenty-nineteen, the world as we know it ends. Everything is lost and everything is changed, but this is not where are story begins or even ends. This is just were it is changed, and we are given a new start, though who knows if it was better.
In twenty-fifteen a company was born, Hypiera Medical Innovations. They promised the medical community break- through and even the metaphorical Fountain of Youth. This was the top thing the promised. A chip implanted into the human body that could make us live for a hundred and fifty or so years. The world was astonished but skeptical. To prove their invention, a small patch was created and inserted into random people, even though there was an issue with the radiation levels produced during production Keeping it quiet believing they can fix it, everything went off without a hitch. By twenty-eighteen, people seen how healthy these people were, and started demanding the product. The problem of the radiation wasn't fixed, but the promise of people spending three thousand dollars on this chip each, was too much and the company got greedy.
January First of twenty nineteen, the chip when into production. Millions were made in a short amount of time, and the radiation levels skyrocketed. At first, animals started getting sick and dying. The world's animal kingdom was dwindling down to nothing. Then by March of that year, the test group started to get sick and die. It set off alarms with people, but then the idea of living for years was great and they kept buying. By this time, some of the elderly and babies, started dying and soon the world was wiped clean in one massive plague from the Radiation.
But like with every plague, there were survivors, people that had either became immune or their body shifted and changed with the radiation. Some developed super human abilities, and some grew things that just didn't belong. They had to find away to survive, and many knowing the sea was open and clear, decided to build ships and sail. Finding a basic pirate ship blue print, it was passed around for a few years until ships were constructed, albeit the same layout but still. Crews of people that worked well together or fit together, built ships and moved to the water. People wanted to explore and find out who, what and mostly where was left.
... That brings us to where we are now.
Fifteen years later, four ships control the worlds oceans. Modern day pirates, each pillaging and plundering each other, as well as the civilians who dared to live on the land. People had started to rebuild, though the looming threat of the pirates was ever there. There had even started to be births of children, super children, children unlike those of the past.
The world had adapted it's self to the large amount of radiations and the wildlife was coming back, crops were growing. Still primitive and rough, there was no electricity, there was no technology. Everything was fashioned from hand, and the earth people had to work for what they earned. Even starting to import and export things on crude ships, giving the pirates more to raid, plunder and pillage. It the battle of control, who will win.. who will die, and who will you join.
