The war had begun in 2012, the year the Mayan calendar said the world would end. I was a child then, about five years old, rather small but very resourceful. Now, it is 20 years later in the world as we once knew it has been completely destroyed. The governments, once so powerful, now a shadow of themselves, controlled by a corporate entity that has taken over the world. During the war many things happened, people disappeared, monsters emerged, weapons evolved. With the world the way it was terror filled everyone's souls. Few survived the final onslaught, those that did retreated to the once beautiful mountains and lush forests. The bombs had come in destroyed every city man had once built, the only places left were the wild mountains and forests, but these too were not what they once were.
I grew up in these forests, and knew everything about them. I knew what the monsters have done, what they have become. They hunted humans, I hunt them. I also saved as many people as I could. I lived in the northern forests, what once used to be northern California and Southern Oregon. These forests were wild and untamed, as if something had thrown a jungle onto the ordinary forests and fused them together. There were still a few spots untouched which had remained the same as they once were. These were where the people now dwelled. Villages and small towns were now in these plain familiar places. The monsters filled the jungle areas.
