The government has practically fallen. It has been ninety days since the virus was noticed,
and sixty days since the first death - and the first case of the dead attacking the living.
The state of New York is in shambles, people scrounging for necessities and to survive.
Sanctuaries that were set up are over run, most have fallen, there is one left that anyone
in the state knows of. That sanctuary found in Central Park is small and no longer allowing
any survivors inside in order to keep those already inside alive. Because of this, survivors have
started teaming together, creating their own groups in order to try and fight for their lives.
How long will the sanctuary last before it falls with the rest? Will those inside survive? And
how long can those on the outside survive? No one knows what's happening outside the New York,
but rumors are that bombs have started to fall in the worst areas, and the fear is that it's only
a matter of time before no one is left.
Pax-18 started slowly, symptoms weren't even noticed by the public, doctors or scientists. It started
with sleeplessness, a symptom so common amongst the public that no one even paid attention to it.
The start is unknown, patient zero was declared the first one to develop more severe symptoms but the
true start of it is a mystery. Where did it start? Where did it come from? These are questions with no answers.
Sleeplessness led to a rash, always starting small in the same area on every single victim. A small spot that
wouldn't be noticeable on the back of the neck except for the irritation that it brought with it. The spot
came with an unbearable itch, and within days, spread to cover the face and the rest of the neck.
The number of people infected spread fast, or perhaps, most already had it and didn't know. As the infection
became deadly, new symptoms were noticed. Extreme anger just before the victims passed, and within hours
of passing, an odd twitching from the deceased bodies. A twitching that turned to eyes opening and those in
the medical field getting attacked by the deceased.
