You know the recipe; the world has a high level of technology and the world is getting ready to come to an end due to some event (in this case asteroids), so let’s setup a way to save humanity. In this case they create Arks and place people in cryogenic stasis in them so they will survive the catastrophe. It seems like an awesome and great plan, so what are the chances that things actually work as planned? If you are thinking not so well, then you’re right on the mark. 107 years later you wake up and you are the only survivor of your Ark. The other stasis pods failed and now your fellow Ark mates are dried up husks. You leave the Ark and walk outside to what should be a nearly deserted world and almost get taken out by a bandit. You are saved at the last second by Dan Hagar who gives you a crash course in the Wasteland. The short story is that the world did not go boom, there were survivors, but things have still gone to hell. There are bandits, mutants (which you can’t loot mostly, bastards) and the Authority.
