The area where No Return is set is isolated and remote. Not much is known about what has been going on outside of the immediate vicinity for the last 19 years. Once the telecommunications infrastructure failed, things just went… quiet. Survivors were faced with the difficult task of learning to live without the technologies that had made their lives so much easier, and coping with the living nightmare that the world had become. Life is hard when refrigerated trucks and planes aren’t ferrying food around the country. It’s even harder when the dead breach your perimeter and eat your livestock. Or your children.

The following pages provide important information about our setting, and should help you to navigate the theme. We hope you’ll find it as rife with storytelling potential as we do!
