The London Wasteland (also known as London, The Great Wen, The Big Smoke, or The Old Smoke) is the remnants of London in Iggylord's Canon the year 2291.

Before the Great War, London was the Capital City of The United Kingdom, of which Alice Chegwin was prime minister. It was a very cultured city, full of many tourist attractions. After the war, however, it became a mass of political tension, war, and raiders.

Background

Pre-War

Before the war, London was the capital city of the United Kingdom, of which Alice Chegwin was prime minister, and Alicia Windsor was queen. In 2069, the British Government had started the production of Bunker-Corp bunkers all across the country.

On the 23rd of October, 2077, seven tactical nuclear detonations were released by Russia around London. Although the city itself was not hit, the radiation soon plunged it into an apocalyptic wasteland of mutants and lawlessness.

Post-War

On the 23rd of October, 2087, all Bunker-Corp bunkers opened, and people attempted to rebuild, starting a few small settlements. The now ghoulified Alicia Windsor founded Her Majesty's Royal Order, an order sworn to bring peace to the London Wasteland.

Around the same time, a new type of intelligent mutant, Cruorhomines, or Vampires, began to evolve form irradiated humans. They looked fairly human-like, but needed to drink human blood to survive, and, similarly to ghouls, seemed impervious to ageing. Although the governing faction at the time, Her Majesty's Royal Order (sometimes just called "The Royal Order") never outlawed vampirism, many humans and ghouls alike shunned cruorhomines, and thought of them as abominations, Most vampires retreated underground (both literally and figuratively) into the now abandoned Bunker-Corp bunkers, and Hector Ventura, the first cruorhomine, established the Ventura Clan of vampires, who sought revenge on the humans who had forsaken them. The Ventura Clan claimed superiority over human and Ghouls, and began feasting on them. Queen Alicia Windsor, however, had no proof that the Ventura Clan were responsible, and so never declared war on them.

The Church of The Children of Atom soon came to power, taking many settlements as their own, and declared war on The Royal Order, claiming it was "Atom's wish".

On the 1st of September, 2091, Hector Ventura's daughter, Serana Ventura, attempted to stop her father's slaughter of humans, but failed. Hector locked her away in the cryogenic suspension of Bunker B67. Hector's wife, Veronica, fled into hiding, to prevent meeting the same fate as her daughter.

On the 22nd of February, 2283, The Royal Order gained control of Pillartown, a settlement built around the British Museum remains, after defending it against The Holborn Highwaymen, an infamous raider gang.

On the 18th of June that same year, a splinter group of the Church of The Children of Atom, calling themselves the Atomguard, was formed. They despised all mutants, especially vampires and ghouls. They began forming and taking various settlements, established an alliance with The Church of The Children of Atom, and declared war on The Royal Order and the Ventura Clan.

Environment

Weather and Climate

London's weather is fairly similar to how it was before the Great War. From Winter to early Spring, it is usually quite cold and, at times, snowy. From late Spring to Summer, it is usually rather warm and sunny, with the occasional thunder and radiation storms in the evening. From Autumn to early Winter, the weather is usually rather rainy and windy. The weather cycle was not affected very much, as no nukes were dropped on London itself, but rather around the city.
