In late 2017 a global pandemic struck the earth. Within 72 hours the airborne virus had been carried in the upper atmosphere, and in what’s now described as Lazarus Rain, fell, and infected over 70% of the population. The living quickly died, and then rose again. The already dead (and mostly buried) …well, let’s just say they didn’t stay like that for long. Three keywords were broadcast repeatedly on all available channels, and in every language known to man. Avoidance, Termination & Disposal.
Instructions for carrying out each stage were dropped in their thousands as leaflets by cargo transports, flown remotely from bunkers deep underground. Those who chose to heed the instructions had a chance, although slim to get to the rapidly depleting safe zones dotted around the planet. Those that didn’t, or couldn’t bring themselves to terminate loved ones, quickly succumbed to the already infected.
To help survivors, the remaining living world leaders trained their elite military personnel to form ORV Units. These mobile Outbreak Response Teams were equipped with specially designed LYNX Outbreak Response Vehicles. Heavily armoured, Hybrid 4x4’s, packed with enough tech and weaponry to both locate, terminate and dispose of even the most aggressive of the undead.
