The day upon which nothing moved, save for the wind blowing around light debris, had finally come...

The year was unknown... Minutes become hours, hours to days, days to weeks, months, years, didn't matter...

All that mattered was making it to see the sky not become so dim, the sun not visible beneath the layer of thick dust and smoke.

A pair of eyes are seen from beneath a pile of rubble. The soldiers, wearing heavy EV mechanized suits, walk over to investigate. "We mean no harm. Please reveal yourself." Holstering or lowering their weapons, one of them takes of their helmet and lets his sweaty hair fling as he shakes his head. Kneeling down, he reaches in his pocket and pulls out a chocolate ration energy bar and offers it to the eyes staring, slitted, unsure.

Greedily a small and tanned hand darts out and snatches it. The soldier looks back and smiles at the rest of his squad as the wrapper comes flying out. A small child comes out of the rubble, walking on all four like a ape. "Are there more of you?" the soldier asks. The child, no older then 7 and at the age where sex is indistinguishable when paired with decent clothing and short hair, shakes their head vigorously 'no'.

The soldier nods and says, "That was my last one. Theres more where we come from. Do you want to come with us?" The child has a ponderous look, thinking...

Running off to a small concrete box of sorts with one side missing- their possible shelter of sorts- they come back carrying a doll. The soldier closes his eyes and shakes his hand, then rubs his forehead. Thinking, a child this young, and especially a girl, shouldn't live like this... Letting his rifle hang by its strap he carries his helmet under one arm and offers his gloved hand to the child.

Taking it, she looks up at him and smiles, while whispering, "thank you."

The soldier looks away at the gloom surroundings of collapsed buildings, skeletons, crashed and obliterated ancient vehicles, and lets a tear roll down his cheek as he murmurs, "Just doing my job..."

------------------------------

I have the general idea of this from 'The Last Book In The Universe' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Book_in_the_Universe).

The main plot of this will take place in post-apocalyptic New York City, where a band of soldiers- about 30- comprising of hardened, honest, honorable, strict, and good men (and a few women), overlook a group of survivors in a place known only as 'Eden'- a military base inside a dome built shortly after the apocalypse where life is sustainable and not plagued by poisoned water, disease, etc, and the sun actually shines.

The soldiers, the descendants- roughly 4 generations down- of marines and were born and raised in the still technologically progressing base where life is a Hugo-Utopian ideal with fresh water, grass, and at least 50 different forms of life preserved.

The problem- Gangs. Gangs of primitive survivors using salvaged weapons and resurrected vehicles keep women and children as slaves- women, for the obvious, and children for future soldiers to bolster their ranks.

The soldiers constantly face hardship while trying to save single and grouped survivors, mostly children and teens, and salvaging/scavenging supplies, the base not completely self reliant and canned goods still quite useful.

The main problem facing them is this- the Eden is becoming more and more crowded and their engineers are working at their fastest paces to expand the base subterranean wise. But it's not fast enough.

They plan on sending a scout band out to scout for the mythical Grasslands, in a province once known as a 'state' called 'Idaho', where weather patterns have kept dust out of the immediate atmosphere and life thrived, the sun shown, and there were animals and fruits abundant for all.

I think this is actually pretty damn good. All you need to do is control the action injections and make sure there's always a leading goal, or at least a subplot to keep this going. You need a character sheet too, but other than that everything seems to be pretty well done. Although, you may want to try and give a rough estimation of what the technology is like - lasers, cybernetics, nano-machines, etc.

If you read the wiki, there are 'mindprobes', which can lead us to conclude the development of cybernetics.

The people who are in Eden- the only safe place in LBitU/where tech still progressed- have genetic engineering, which is how they survived the radiation hundreds of years ago.

There WERE gut-blasters, but i can't remember too well if they were laser-based.

I just wanna stick to ballistic/kinetic weapons.

(It is commonly thought of that each weapon has at least 3 clips at least. So you haz a LOT of ammo ^.^)

(Nothing wrong with that, maybe my guns a bit inaccurate. It actually won't be, but for the sake of the argument we can pretend. Are you going to start this in this thread, or make a new one and when will it be started?)
