          Ngl I love fantasy maps that are like this. I am in the Eastern Death zone, and the closest place to me in 7, so I will have to make it there. I would assemble all my friends and family and equip them. I have some battle quality swords at home, some hawkbill tools, i could create spears and weapons. For equipment I only have cloth and leather gear. It would probably look like pic related minus the guns and 18th century clothing

            Honestly Stirling fricked up his Eastern Death Zone by including Appalachia in it. Starving refugee hordes from Virginia, New York, and Ohio would get chewed up by the landscape and the locals would transition to subsistence farming without too much trouble because they pretty much already do that

              There is a notation in one of the in-book maps about "small towns" in the vicinity of Appalachia. Presumably there were survivors that forted up deep in the hills.

          It's pointed out multiple times that the changes in the laws of physics are so specific and so improbable that there is a 0% chance it happened naturally. The question is whether God, space aliens, or something else entirely was responsible.

      The map is from a AH novel where aliens turn off electricity and force humanity to LARP as fantasy world. I think humans tried flamethrowers and balloons but aliens gave that Church on the map magic powers.
      They also create an alternate Earth where they push a black captain of a ship and Nantucket into Babylon era to see how fast humanity can progress technologically

        Because it greatly contributed to the popular notion (which had been around since The Day After as well) that EMPs/solar flares just suddenly shut down all electronics permanently over a given area, not only affecting shit as small and simple as lasers or flashlights but somehow disabling fricking iridium in gunsights. The effect of these weapons is directly proportional to how much of the blast's energy can reach its target: when you're targeting something huge like a single large power grid, then the weapon works since chances are that 30-40% of the imparted energy is going straight into said grid. But shit like airplanes and helicopters just turning off and crashing? For even a large commercial airliner to be disabled by an EMP it would have to be very close to the explosion, so close in fact that by the time the EMP is dangerous enough, your airliner has other problems to worry about: namely that it is inside the nuclear fireball.

      In the book series this map is from God basically turns physics down from 10 to 5, so for example firing a gun just made a whump and popped the bullet out an inch or two, and all electronics were essentially turned off. ‘Death Zones’ are the urban and suburban areas that experienced a collapse due to starvation, disease, and unrest as society collapsed within weeks, the only people living their the primitive tribes of people who’d resorted to cannibalism to survive. I think I remember seeing a number like less than 5% of Americans 1995 population surviving The Change, the same for the continent of Europe, and more like 99% for Japan. The newer books tend to be worse but Stirling is a bit of a weeb and you meet some Japanese people and hear this story about how the Imperial family survived. The Emperor saw early that the collapse of Japan is inevitable and did his best to comfort his people, opening up the Imperial Palace and being out in public as much as possible to try and stop the rioting as people fought over the last of the food, and declared he would remain until the end. But he ordered a hundred men to take his wife and son to safety and they lost thirty fighting their way out of Tokyo to a small island (I forget the name), and supplies were so short that old people started walking into the sea to free up food while the rest of the able bodied had to fight off desperate refugees from getting onto the island. Five years on they manage to get a little society running but Japans surviving population was less than 200,000, and the Hundred who hadn’t died of something were so shattered by the ordeal of Tokyo and then the refugees that they committed suicide. Pretty bad things all around.

          The series is really three series sharing the same universe and some of the same characters:

          Books 1-3: Pretty good, goes into some detail about people trying to rebuild society with salvage and hand tools, and you can see how the existence of things like concrete and tons of easily accessed steel ruined an attempt to re-create a 1-1 medieval society

          Books 4-10: Deals with the kids of the original cast, who are dead or old at this point. People have no bought in to the crazy ideas people thought up in the first trilogy, the clans and small village confederations are straight up nations who've built a prosperous quasi-medieval society using bits of salvaged tech like railroads. Big overarching baddie in the distance bearing down on the West Coast keeps the pace moving but this is where things started coming off the rails for me, the first part of The Quest was neat but the latter half felt like Stirling thought of the Battle of the Horse Heaven Hills and the Fall of Corwin but had a contract for six books, so he had to stretch things out for three more books through some occasionally humorous side tracks. Plus another overarching theme between the books is how with the death of technology magic is slowly starting to seep back into the world, and while cool in concept I was pretty meh on the whole thing.

          Books 10-15: Bleh. While it is cool that you can see the Montivallan-Hawaiian-Japanese-Australian-British Coalition conducting an opposed beach landing against Best Korean forces dug in at Pearl Harbor the bits that make you go "oh, neat" are few and far between. I don't like Orlaith, I don't like Herri, Grumpy Grandma Tiphaine is funny, and so is Orlaith getting knocked up by a Mongol nobleman she met for like two months, but I ended up skipping The Sea Peoples entirely and didn't read like the last third of the Sky Blue Wolves.

    Every battle is solved by blackpowder skirmishes. Primers might be too expensive to use on a large scale, but there are thousands of reenactors, reloaders and larpers who can make gunpowder without any power, and we have modern small unit tactics. Any moron who tries to field a massive army and stage large formations for battle will experience attrition worse than Rome v Parthia. Nice baggage train, dingus.

          Not just electronics, but anything pressure/energy related. Guns, explosives, steam power, electricity, nothing works at all, literally all physics are fricked. Apparently it's connected to the author's Nantucket series, and it's intimated that the temporal displacement of the island to the Bronze Age (and the subsequent global chaos this causes in antiquity) caused massive spacetime frickups which turn the laws of the universe upside down.

    Vancouver Island would be absolutely wild with this map since they appear to be both relatively untouched (ie not a death zone) but entirely isolated from the rest of North America by the Vancouver/Seattle death zone

      I don't know man, his worldbuilding is shit really. Looking at wikipedia, trying to sus out what happens makes me roll my eyes. Also, the idea that the Appalachians would somehow become a death zone is moronic. My Hillbilly country men are some of the last who could actually weather a storm that bad, assuming they let all the druggies die off first.

        The maps in some of the later books have parts of Appalachia and Louisiana labelled as "small communities" rather than "death zone". The first few books take place entirely within the Pacific Northwest and knowledge of the rest of the country is limited, but as the characters explore they realize, for instance, that California isn't entirely uninhabited and that not every group that survived in the Death Zones did so by cannibalism.

        It's actually extremely-advanced aliens who then proceed to LARP as ancient gods, doling out the occasional favor or blessing to their faithful. I'm not sure if their motivation is ever explained, or their existence ever more than just hinted at.

        I think their motivation is to protect humanity from itself. Limiting our technology and the size of our societies reduces our chances to frick everything up on a global scale.

          I'm sure that they were in no way protecting themselves from what humanity might achieve or become in the future. Nothing says "beneficent paternalism" like killing off 99.999% of humanity without warning.

      Most of the people there died and then some refugees came and resettled the area, lead by a Viking larper. It’s actually a sort of recurring theme with crazy people having a warped view of what their ancestors looked like and drawing inspiration from it, one of the main communities in the PNW is called the Clan Mackenzie and an Englishman living with them describes his life as being “trapped among the frickin’ stage Irish”

    Dies the Fire was moronic bullshit to the point that I'm shocked it was published, let alone spawned so many sequels.

    Interesting idea, but when your cast's survival/success depends on multiple million-to-one runs of luck, it's poor writing. (I e. Stumbling across the ONE GUY in Oregon who knows how to make longbows.)

      The survivors of an event that kills 99.999% of the human race are by definition all extraordinarily lucky. It's like complaining that one of the guys who was on HMS Hood went it went down 'just so happened' to be blown to the surface by an air bubble. Yeah, no kidding. If he hadn't had a 1-in-a-million piece of luck, there would have only been 2 survivors out of the 1,418 crewmen instead of 3.

    You basically cant knock white people past the year 1800 without creating a situation where no one over the age of 10 survived to pass on information.

      The series is set in the PNW so the map is most detailed there. Portland waspreserved because a Ren Faire Carnie became a warlord and killed everyone before complete starvation could set in

        It's also worth noting that it was set in the '90s, back when Portland was only *slightly* Marxist. Re-run the scenario today, and you'd get a different outcome, one which almost certainly would not larp as medieval Christian Europe.

      A ruthless, highly competent dictator set up shop in Portland less than a week after the lights went off while Seattle's municipal government collapsed into anarchy. The former expelled enough of the city's population that the remaining food stocks kept the rest alive while the latter experienced cannibalism by winter. A big theme of the early books is that a single charismatic leader typically meant the difference between a group floundering or flourishing.'

      I started on this series due to this thread. Writing isn’t bad but not alot has happened and witchcraft? Why? I hope the witches all Get killed. At least the author included the line I was screaming n my head the whole time
      >don’t suffer a witch to live.
      Finished part 1 book one and this far it’s handmaids tale level. There are alot of prepper fiction for free on YouTube that I’m suspicious are AI written and definitely ai read that are on par with this.
      Oh yeah also there is a simp scene where they execute some ebil racist hillbilly’s

      >I hope the witches all Get killed.
      They don't. Within a few years they become one of the largest groups in the Pacific Northwest. They also become hardcore Celtic larpers.

    Well, since it looks like I'm on the border of the Eastern Death Zone, I'll just become a marauder.
    I hate Humanity, don't care about my family and I despise other Americans and America.
    So, my plan (shitty though it may be) is to grab my Mossberg 500, my battle axe and my bulldog, and then steal a boat and sail the Tennessee River, raiding and pillaging and destroying infrastructure until I am killed.

        That's okay. I also have a recurve bow, a long bow, 2 spears, a lance, warhammer, 2 battle axes, a flail, a saex, and several swords.
        I own more melee weapons than I do guns.
        I even have a 14 guage carbon steel helmet, a decent shield, and a chain mail shirt.
        Unironically, the marauder larper may indeed be the most well prepared anon for this.

          Have more stuff doesn't help though. All that is very heavy. You're not going anywhere as a loner with most of it while still having food and so on, which isn't going to get you very far on foot either. You're going to die to any group at all solo, and people will group up right away irl.

          While I assume you're probably just larping, if you're not then my assumption changes to you never having gone for even a couple of weeks innawoods yourself without resupply. I have, it's non-trivial and that's without being a huge butthole with a target painted on him by nature of his very existence.
