The Rebirth – Part 3

Posted by / in Lore / 1 comment

In the earliest days after the War, Minerva had only one goal: survival.  Many historians today will spout propaganda about the “glorious mission” and “divine calling” of Minerva in the “cultural, scientific and political Rebirth” (from Minerva: Our glorious calling by John F. Anderson) as if the few hundred scientists, political refugees and ex-military personnel huddled in a bunker deep in the mountains of the ruined nation of Kyrgyzstan were excited about the end of civilization as they knew it.  As if they weren’t worried about the impending nuclear winter making it nearly impossible to grow any food, or about the extremely high levels of latent radiation they were exposed to on a daily basis.

The Rebirth – Part 2

Less than 100 years after the War and Minerva’s origins are already shrouded in mystery and legend.  The official propaganda taught by Oculus is unchallenged, and any contradictory evidence has been removed by the official Archives.  It was with great effort that I found the following fragments referring to the time now known as “The Rebirth.”

The Rebirth – Part 1

Posted by / in Lore / 1 comment

Some historians may write of 2020s as a decade of death, destruction and war, and they’d be right.  I, however, see this time as a period of necessary cleansing that prepared the way for the Rebirth.  The culture, economy and technology of the time were slowly killing the planet.  Reliance upon fossil fuels and nuclear power for energy was unsustainable, unhealthy and dangerous.  The destruction of the times was a direct consequence of the way technology was used in pre-Rebirth culture.  Their recognition of the sickness of the world’s culture is what led the Founders to organize Minerva.
