OOC A Subcontinent in Ruins

Thanks to @Dragonwolf73 and @Ivyss for fixing the original post.

Thank you @Chrysalis Σ for creating the role-play.

The year is 2008.
In our timeline, Europe's biggest concern wouldn't be having to deal with being a nuclear wasteland.
This isn't that timeline.

Since the year 1983, Europe has been recovering from devastating nuclear annihilation from bombs planted by the US in case of invasion.
However, it seems the bombs were activated prematurely, and it's now a complete hellhole (more than I've heard it is nowadays).

However, some countries have been making slow and steady recoveries, inching their ways to having stable governments and possible economies. Sadly for the people here, Germany is not one of those countries, having been still divided into East and West when the nukes went off.


Most of the population lives in bunkers, with only scavengers going to the surface to get supplies when needed. At least for them technology has been developed in the last 25 years to make things easier, such as boots designed for traversing tall buildings, hand-held grappling hooks for scaling walls, and quick radiation treatment meds that may have side effects.

So... yeah. A country destroyed by its own warmongering, now destroyed again by nuclear fallout. The world could be your oyster, or it could kill you.
Which one happens, I don't know yet. Maybe the blacksite under the former capital city could have something to do with it.

Disposable Characters are one-offs meant to fulfill a purpose. That purpose is usually working as an NPC merchant or the like, and then dying horribly.
They do not require as much info as main characters, but they may be killed at any point by the main characters.
Think of them as unprotected NPCs in a Fallout game.

After a few days of confiscating obristan passports, he and his family left on the train for Obristan, after purchasing the forged passports from Jorji's acquaintance. Miraculously, they were let in to the country, and spent their life there, until the nuclear bombs detonated. At first, he didn't hear of anything for nearly 10 long years, until news started coming in form all over the world of the nuclear bombs, and that's when he decided to leave. After that, he left the country in search of anything to help his family, who came with him. Once they arrived in Germany, which took nearly a month, they decided to settle down in Berlin, in a shabby house, built of the ruined materials from the wreckage of buildings

It's been 25 years since the bombs, how was he inspector at age 12?
 
Fair enough
Maybe he was an inspector until like 1993 or something, and that's when he heard the news, and wanted to get out
Thanks for that
So I can take away a lot of the time, and he could be 37 again
