Yet more fiction from Post-Apoc20.

Humanity has become weak. They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions and we have allowed our sentimentality to blind us to our duty to improve the gene pool. Those who cannot see are given glasses, allowing them to see and breed instead of being culled from herd, allowing the eyesight of the next generation to slowly improve.


This is going to change. From this moment forward, everything is going to change.


I have created a disease, I call it Armageddon; it will cull the weak and leave only the strong. Those who recover will grow stronger and stronger. If you harbor the weak among you, they will kill you. Turn them out! Force them out of your cities to live or die alone or they will kill you.


Your governments have labeled me a madman and a terrorist but history will remember me as the genius who saved humanity from its own kindness.


It is a duty I am willing to die to carry out.


For weeks now, 1,000 of the faithful, my followers and research assistants have been living among you. They spread Armageddon among you and now it is too late.


Soon, your FBI will find me. They are very close.


Let them come! Let us see who among them is strong and who is weak, for I infected myself first. I am not above seeing if I will survive the crucible of Armageddon.


I am Patient Zero.

Oh joy. A bio-engineer who is trying to "save" humanity.

That is the scariest one of them all so far. I have met people like this. Sitting on the floor with their hands bound spouting about how they will cleanse humanity of the sinful all while waiting for us to bring them to a clean bed, with good food, and anything they might need.

While I read this I can picture that look. I hate that look. GREAT story.

ETA for Apoc20?

At first I was thinking that it sounded like Ra's al'Ghul, but then I got to thinking that it's more like marvel-verse Apocalypse (apropos, eh?) who spouts darwinism on crack.

To Steve: Well, except for Peak Oil, I've settled into doing monologues for the fiction for my campaign models. So apocalyptic megalomanic+monologue, I'm not sure I'm genetically capable of writing that without it sounding like something from a comic. It's in my blood ;)

To Walt: Soon! I am done with everything but NPCs/Monsters for the campaign models.

This is my far my favorite campaign model. I found that last line in particular to be very evocative. Can't wait till Apoc20 comes out :D
