This site is very awesome, and it just started today. It's a laid back RP, and open to guest advertising/affiliating.
The planets civilization is in it's 2000th year, and has come further along in technology than the people of Earth, just by a bit.
Tantor is a planet that orbits a sun much like the one in the Sol system, the planet itself would be jmuch like earth except that it's rotation and orbit around the sun keep one side constantly facing towards the sun and the other away. This causes one side to be constantly frozen while the other is temperate, one of the governments is on the temperate side, and the other is on the frozen side of the planet.
The frozen side was always attempting to gain some part of the temperate side of the planet so they would be able to have an easier life, this led to wars that would break out around the world.
In a desperate attempt to take control over the temperate zone with the winter season approaching, the darkened side of the planet begins to develop a new weapon. This weapon would wipe out life on a small portion of the planet, making it easier for them to take control of the planet.
When they finally dropped the weapon it did far more damage then they could have anticipated, it wiped out all human life on the surface. The only groups that survived were small pockets of people who had been underground during the strike.
One of these groups was a teenage class taking a tour of an old wartime underground army bunker. The weapon had passed over them during their lesson, and they had no idea that any of it had happened.
