@DivinePrincess

Thanks! I like your post. Should we retcon Dan into already being with the group or do we want to have him come across the group in some way?

Also, was there any specific cause of the apocalypse, or was it just a series of things over time that are progressively getting worse?

He can already be with the group. @Elinor
Well, the cause of the downfall was the virus "Black Cotton". I guess you could say everything is getting worse; but since some plants animals, and humans were dying everything is just dying along with it. Like in my post I mentioned the TV stations going down as well as the radio stations, and even the electric companies cutting off the outlet power. Everything is just slowly getting worse as time goes on without a cure.

I guess I have to ask...is this virus air borne? Or is it something more like physical contact?

@XxXTheSwordsmanXxX If it was airborne I feel like they'd be dying off already now, since they've had to leave their apartments to get stuff before (i assume)

It was my understanding it would be a physical contact thing, like germs/bacteria. So if they touched something that one of the sick people touched, kind of thing.

Or at least, that's what I think makes the most sense? But obviously @DivinePrincess has the final say/knows what they want!

I agree with you. But I also feel that, even with all the chaos of how this went down, that our group would know how this virus is contracted.

Now she was feeling big and gritty and full of passages. 'Are you all right?' Granny nodded, and opened her windows. She extended her east and west wings and tried to concentrate on the tiny cup held in her pillars."
