The Last Light

Introduction

Last Bullet, Last Breath. Last Chance....

"It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle over the remnants of their torn world. The factions of yesterday are being reborn into tomorrow, and revolution looms over many. Survival seems to mean little now in the metro: it's all idealism and martyrdom. The surface remains the survivalist paradise, or a traveler's nightmare.


Welcome everyone! This RP will be set in the universe of Dmitry Glukhovsky's amazing novel, Metro 2033. Other books include Metro 2034 and the Metro Universe Series. Events from Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light will be also used as canon. I prefer the novel and Russian names, but it's up to you. We will be going off the Bad Ending of Metro: Last Light, meaning the Red Line was massacred when invading D6. The Polis Rangers have been reduced to a few remnants. Artyom, Khan, Ulman, Korbut, Lesnitsky and Miller were all killed and the Dark Ones escaped Moscow, leaving to never be seen again.

Now, for the current politics. The Red Line's defeat has caused some unrest in the southern stations like Fruzenskaya and Sportivaya. The Communist Party's grip has been lessened, and the police state is collapsing. Now that the war with the Reich has picked up again, Politburo members are facing increased pressure fro citizens to end conflicts and protect freedoms. Most Red soldiers have been stationed in Komsomolskaya, the capital, and the northern Red Line. Armory Station has started a rebellion against the Reds, which cuts them off from their weapons factories and ammunition supply.

The Reich has been on the rise. Now that the Reds' numbers are down, the Fuhrer has ordered his thugs and skinheads to start pushing towards Theater Station and Lubyanka, and the 1905 has become a Reich puppet state. Currently, the Fourth Reich controls seven Panzer railcars, equipped with standard 12.7 DSHk surplus machine guns and heavy armor salvaged from the surface. Nazi influence in the Metro has caused a large slave trade between Hansa, the Arbat Confederation and Reich to replace the Hansa-Red Treaty that ended the first Metro War.

Polis is still independent, due to large military preparations. The Rangers are now few and far between, and Polis has been turned into a very defensive fortress. Young men are drafted into station defense, and military leaders have taken over to defend from possible Red attacks or Nazis from the north. Equipment is very common and the trade with other stations continue, but under a watchful eye by the station guards.

The Hansa remains unchanged, still the monopoly of rich businessmen, slavers, aristocrats and mercenaries that control the Ring. They have started imposing trade blockades with the Red Line, and are routing food shipments to other stations intentionally to starve out Red officials into collapse. Trade with VDNKh, the Plantations north of Belorusskaya and the Baumansky Alliance is still going great. VDNKh tea is now commonplace in nearly every station. Their tea is undoubted the best in the metro, and can be found nearly in every bar or shop in any market. Baumans have started preparing electrical equipment for Hansa Security and trade with others in the metro. The Plantations have expanded to filling nearly whole stations and tunnels with mushrooms, pigs, fruits and vegetables and, now more commonly, marijuana. Weed trade has been legalized by Hansa, allowing drugs to flow through around the Ring Line.


I know that might be overwhelming to those who don't know much Metro Lore, but it will be fine. You should pick it up as you RP, being submersed in the setting.
