'So Shiny, So Chrome' takes place 13 years after The Fall, a combination of the Oil Wars that came to a climax with a nuclear event. Our setting is the Wasteland, once the Australian outback. Wildlife mutated by radiation prowls the wasteland; weather is harsh and highly unpredictable; roving gangs of survivors fight for what remains of precious resources.
What a day, what a lovely day.
----- Season: Winter Weather: Days 8°C/Nights -10°C
Winter has descended once again on the Wasteland as merciless as ever. Days are cold, and with little cover the high winds are all the more biting; even without snow, hypothermia and frostbite are a constant threat. The only relief is that many of the Wasteland's creatures are in hibernation.
Sam isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. Having been kicked in the head by a horse when he was younger, he's always been a tiny bit... off. But one thing Sam does do right is take care of his brother, whom he loves above all else; it's a duty he takes very seriously. Though not very bright, Sam is good with his hands and has put his skills to thorough use keeping the two of them fed and watered.
Where Sam is physically strong but mentally weak, Abel is wildly intelligent and still growing into his body. Having been very young when The Fall occurred, Abel was his brother's shadow and loves Sam dearly. Something of a prankster before their life on the road, Abel's knack for machinery and making bullets has allowed them to eke out a living. His best friend is their cattle dog, taken with them when they fled home.
