Dead to Rights

The world is gone. It took 4 1/2 years to be able to surface again; it's been nearly ten years since then. The Earth is still here... but it's not the same.

PostSubject: Biomes; How They Have Changed   Tue Jul 01, 2014 3:14 pm

Biomes: Although we can't perfectly describe the way earth would change if it were to grow dramatically hotter, we CAN give a fairly good estimate. For the sake of simplicity, we at DTR have decided to do thing through the different global biomes.


1.Deserts:

If they were hot before, they are on fire now. Increased wind speed and heat has chipped away at the worlds deserts and created dunes the size of mountains, with enough heat to kill a man if they stay out in the sun for any longer than an hour or two.
Where there is not sand there is packed earth which has puckered and cracked, creating large cracks which go down for quite a ways, even as far as 20 feet, sometimes exposing  caverns or magma that had bubbled up from the mantle as a result of the meteors impact, which only adds to the heat.
All the civilization that once lived here has died out, the few individuals who survive being insane hermits who did the impossible to survive.

2.Savannahs:

Whereas before the savannah was dry, but still filled with life, now the grasses have dried up and begun the slow process of desertification. Food is scarce and the many herds of animals have had to adapt accordingly. Lack of water has made rabies into an epidemic among the population and the few humans you meet will just as soon turn you into a meal as greet you. The few times it does rain, the clouds, which are made heavy with the evaporated water of the now-dry lakes, will flood the entire area, creating an entirely new set of problems. The only true civilization here is trading posts where airships sell their goods and refuel.

3.Grasslands:

Where once There was grass, lush and beautiful, now there are golden fields of hardy plants, typically survivors from the desolation of the savannah; the same applies to any native animals that could not adapt to the temperature changes, instead choosing to move on to the grasslands, which now resemble the savannah more and more. As a result there is an odd mix of tainted and untainted animals in the area, creating a unique ecology that blends species both new and old.
Civilization has recently sprung up all over these places, utilizing the strong northern breeze for the growing industry of wind power. Most people here are not natives, making it a place of immigration and industry.

4.Rainforests:

Theses verdant forests which were once filled with life are on the retreat, not dying, but gradually moving further away from the great heat. As a result, these are places are mass graves for all manner of life, the remains of creatures that failed to move with the forest. As fields of dead trees grew dry, forest fires became a problem, culminating in the great fire of 2017, which, when finished, left acre upon acre of trees  and skeletons made of jet and charcoal. An unhealthy fog permeates such places, and the remaining life is irreversibly tainted and savage.
Civilization shuns these places with an almost superstitious dread.
Allerium is nearly everywhere in this biome, followed closely in quantity by inoxium.

5. Temperate Forests:

Places of Life, peace, and plenty, the temperate forest regions have evolved into a sort of temperate-tropical mix, filled with life of all kinds, ranging from the deer, wolves, and bears typical of the region, to the newer tenants, such as monkeys, panthers, and all manner of bugs.
These beautiful places are abundant with civilization and trade, frequently acting as the face of the modern world. Inoxium is still plenty common in the native population though, and disease has grown common as a result of invasive species.

6. Taigas:

By far the most comfortable climate as of now, as the winters have grown more mild and summers less cold. More deciduous trees have moved into the area and these regions do tend to be economically prosperous, thriving on commerce with the hotter regions. There is an almost ethereal quality about the place, like its denizens are more in tune with nature, the majesty of which is quickly evident upon seeing it. Many of civilizations great cities are here, making use of the local resources for trade.

7. Tundras:

These places have taken up the taiga's fallen mantle, with great forests, fierce winters, and all manner of large animals. Few other than the rangers live in this place for good reason. Inoxium permeates the very air of this location, mutating almost every animal into a more dangerous version of its former self.
Civilization sees this place as a land of hardship, with very little of value, but a few rich companies have begun operations, realizing that precious metals and rate lumber are abundant in the area.
