Though the bombs didn’t hit Kentucky quite like they did other states in the union the effects were felt all the same. Cities withered and citizens retreated into the hills, towns, and forests of their Appalachian home and hunkered down to wait out the apocalypse. And as the years turned into decades and the decades into centuries the people fell into old habits and older feuds, living in the shadows of the irradiated green expanse formerly known as Kentucky.
Life in the forests ain’t easy for the Burnt Cask tribe. Rough weather, hard land, and other tribes encroaching on their land not to mention raiders and the things that wander through the brush and forests makes every day a struggle to not starve, get shot, or get eaten by whatever happens to wander through their portion of the Bluegrass. Now as a new day dawns another group of young men and women awaken to begin the next step of their lives, finish their final survival training, and become adults in the eyes of the tribe. But the bluegrass hides more mysteries under 200 years of decline and radioactive debris than even the elders can imagine and when new opportunities present themselves it’s up to the new Full Casks to see it through. What follows is a tale of mystery, exploration, and woe as can only be told in the dark forests of America’s Lost state, and with bullets and full casks of their famous bourbon we’ll see how our young tribals fair.
