'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.
Chief's adopted daughter, and his pride and joy. Alex has been in his care for about 8 years now, and the two of them are as close as any biological father and daughter. The Fall occurred when Alex was 6, when she fled with a refugee group with her parents, James and Amelia. The two of them were lost in an outbreak of disease, and Chief took her in as his own. She is presently in training to be a medic.
OPTIONAL PLOT: Alex disguising her gender for her safety.
