And without further ado, backstory and application
For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall.
On the first day man broke the first seal, and the first living creature said as with a voice of thunder, "Come."
And behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
On the second day man broke the second seal, and the the second living creature said, "Come."
And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.
On the third day man broke the third seal, and the third living creature said, “Come.”
And behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
And something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures said,
“A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius."
On the fourth day man broke the fourth seal, the voice of the fourth living creature said, “Come.”
And behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him.
Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.
When man broke the fifth seal on the fifth day, under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony.
They shouted and said,
“O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?”
When on the sixth day man opened the sixth seal there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,
and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale.
The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful,
and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains
and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of man.
On the Seventh day. When man opened the seventh seal. There was silence in heaven.
Then the seven angels who stand before the heavens, and seven trumpets were given to them.
And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer,
and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne,
and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before the heavens from the hand of the angel.
Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth,
and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake
Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light,
and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep.
God spoke, and He said “Let there be light,” and there was light, the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness.
He called the light “day,” and the darkness was called “night.”
And there was evening,
and there was morning—the first day.
Yesterday. . . was the first day.
You feel something gently touching your skin. Please describe what it is.
(One of the elements: Wind, Water, Fire, Earth, Nothing.)
The sensation wakes you. Your eyes are hazy as you awaken. . .
The world around you seems strange . . .barren. . .
Memories of your former life flood in as your mind adjusts to the waking world.
Who were you before the apocalypse. . . ?
((Character backstory and description))
You decide to get up and look around. A warm salty breeze wraps itself around your body, and caresses your face. You can continue to look around, it seems strangely hazy, you can't see very far. The sound (or smell if you're deaf) of sea water continues to present itself as the only stimulation. (( Quick! Check your pockets! What is currently in your pockets, if you're not wearing clothes with pockets. . . you have nothing!))
Using what you have in your pockets, how do you proceed?
Ultimately night begins to fall. The temperature drops, but not so much that it causes discomfort, the Sol star sets, Earth's moon rises.
You hear a rustling.
Something. . . or someone . . . is there.
"Hello?!" You call out while stomping and clapping your hands.
The rustling stops.
Suddenly a terrifyingly grotesque man hobbles towards you, seemingly from no where.
A flash! The End of Days flashes through your mind, the horrifying scenes of the dead walking the Earth crash into your mind.
There was a celebration. . . it was a New Year's celebration.
The year was two thousand fifteen.
Whether in your own home, on television, on the internet, or on the streets. . . You saw people vanishing.
Bright bursts of light engulfed people, and they simply disappeared.
This lasted for thirty minutes.
After the vanishings . . . they came. The dead walked the earth.
This . . . zombie . . . is hobbling towards you.
How do you respond?
Ultimately you emerge whole, for the most part.
The rest of the night passes by with little incident. . . perhaps you sleep, perhaps you don't.
The next day arrives.
In the distance you see something moving. By squinting your eyes you can tell it's a person. It's a living human being.
How do you respond?
