You don’t know much about the Great War, beyond the fact that it poisoned the world. When the bombs fell and the weaponized plagues were unleashed, it quickly became clear that humanity could not remain on the surface. A lucky few fled into space. Others dug massive bunkers into the face of the Earth. Your ancestors chose to return to the sea.
You live in Benthos, one of the many great cities they constructed. Untold generations later, Benthos is a rusty, leaking wreck, held together by patchy repairs and the incessant work of the Union of Repair and Restoration Workers. A select few live in the upper levels of Benthos, the city-within-a-city called Seaside. Far below, where the water that slowly leaks into Benthos accumulates are the slums known as Siltside. These two worlds maintain an uneasy peace, held together by the actions of the Peacekeepers, a police force answerable only to the law- or so they claim.
And outside, as always, waits the sea, cold and hungry, ready to pour into the pitiful metal shell that holds it out.
Welcome to Benthos.
