In the months following the devastation, survivors found themselves congregating into two factions. The first called themselves the Inquisitors, and represented the Church. They held the belief that God had not forsaken them, but grew furious with the direction of society. They believed God was testing their devotion and sought to reunite the fragmented world in God’s name, earning His trust anew.
The second group took no name, but the Inquisitors named them Heretics. Holding the belief that more disasters were to come, they made the choice to make what little time they had remaining count. Many stole, looted, and fought. The more extreme Heretics took things much further into realms of murder and rape. They took what remained of the world by any means necessary, because it could all be gone tomorrow.
