SITE-014 NUCLEAR FAILSAFE #482 CONFIRMED. NUCLEAR DETONATION IMMINENT.

SITE-014 DETONATED SUCCESSFULLY.

. . .

INITIATE AUTHORITY CONTAINMENT AND COVER-UP PROTOCOL.

At 04:37 on June 13th, 2019, a long neglected fail-safe in the depths of the underground Site-014 was activated. The resulting 5 kiloton nuclear explosion wreaked havoc on the surrounding Nevadan countryside. With the main section of the site destroyed, those who are left need to find any way that they can to endure. Who knows what the survivors will see in the irradiated wasteland that is now their home, and could be their grave.

Background Information

To help with writing the aftereffects of a nuclear event, we have created an Informal Guide to Radiation to provide a quick overview of how radiation works, what it is, and how it kills people.

Please also review the detonation Timeline to ensure that canon remains consistent.
