Description

In the brisk, dry winter of Phoenix, Arizona, the city takes on a surreal charm. The muted hues of the desert landscape stand out against the cool backdrop, with cacti resiliently enduring the chill. The crisp air carries the scent of pine from the distant mountains, and under the clear azure sky, the city's architecture glistens in the gentle winter sunlight. Residents bundle up against the cold, and the normally bustling cityscape takes on a quieter, serene demeanor during the desert's dormant season.

Amidst this winter tableau, a peculiar mystery unfolds in the skies above Phoenix. Over the past few weeks, an unexpected thunderstorm has been quietly brewing, defying the city's reputation for dry winters. Dark clouds loom on the horizon, teasing the possibility of rain that has yet to fall. The persistent rumbling of distant thunder adds an enigmatic soundtrack to daily life. Residents are left in suspense, pondering the origins of this unusual storm and what impact, if any, it might have on Phoenix's typically arid climate. The local community remains intrigued and cautiously watches the horizon for the long-awaited and mysterious rainfall.

Charlie failed to reach The New Dawn, and when he did so he unleashed a terrible Wasteland across the region. It has been raging for a couple weeks now and the city is bristling with Disquiet. Soon something is going to happen and the Carnivale needs to get out of here. At least they would if the most recent Mob that rose up hadn't destroyed the engines of three of the trucks. Now the Carnivale is stuck until the parts get in and repaired. Till then, Virginia has told everyone to keep their heads down.
