Some Helios Sketches
I've been going back and forth between the dystopian/post-apocalyptic world of Helios. Earth has been scorched by a massive solar flare and civilisation collapsed. The daytimes are lethal thanks to large amounts of solar radiation and the nights are owned by packs of roaming wildlife, mutated, and bandits. Mankind has managed to survive thanks to the creation of "Houses"; large fortified settlements that are specialised in providing a certain resource. The trade between the settlements has created a class of warriors that protect the caravans against raiders. Apart from a few trade disputes and the off raids, things are going well, until a southern army shows up that look to claim it all for their god. A god they believe destroyed the earth once because of the lack of sacrifices.
