You know very little of what life was like before the Almighty Catastrophe. You heard stories of how Humanity had built into Space itself, that there were colonies on the Moons, Mars, Venus even. But all of that changed. Humans had united under the banner of the Sapiens Confederation when they first ventured into space, but years of glory led to vanity, corruption and separation. The Confederation split into many different political factions, all with different agendas. Finding alien lifeforms only further damaged the situation, and it was but 2 years later that the many factions became warring factions. Humanity and its progress was cast aside for warfare, decline and destruction. The "Galactic Human War" as aliens called it, it was the ultimate slaughter. All communications between worlds, colonies and satellites had been severed. Every vessel in the stars had been destroyed, every skyscraper had crashed to the ground, and every planet became a desert. No, not a desert, something worse. They became a Wasteland.

-----------------

You make money as a Horse trainer. You help people learn the skill of riding a horse, teach people on their proper diet and physical care. It is a very valuable thing to know when any sort of fuel-based transport is impossible to come by. One day, a mysterious man walks into your place of business. He wears a Trench Coat, a Rugged Fedora and fashionable dress shoes. But one thing sets him apart from most other creeps. He wears a mask, and this is different from other masks you know people to wear. It covers his entire face, again, something not unusual. But the key quality is that the mask is covered in ink blots, from the front at least. The ink blots seem to move, jiggle even. It adds a certain noir to this character, an unusual tone. He pulls out a magnum and aims the barrel toward your head. He utters one sentence that will resonate with you for the rest of your life :
A. "You should know better than to steal from others."
B. "Look at my face. You see a mask. And when I look at yours, I also see a mask."
C. "You should be doing better things. This occupation will only serve to make your life miserable."

"Look at my face. You see a mask. And when I look at yours, I also see a mask." the stranger says. Indeed, you are a person of a shady past. Your life outside of work is something demonic. Your ways are awful, you lie to so many. You pretend to have friends, but you know you'd kill them all for just a liter of water.
The man holsters the magnum, and lets his right arm slack while his left reaches into a pocket. He pulls out a thing of wool or some material, and throws it to you. You stretch it out and it turns out to be a mask exactly like his.
You look to him and ask :

A. "Who are you?"
B. "Why are you here?"
C. "What is the meaning of this?"

"Why are you here?" You ask.
"They sent me here." He replies. He has turned around and is walking toward the door. You hop over your counter as you try to catch up to him.

B. "Who is they?"
C. "What is the meaning of this?"

"What is the meaning of this!?" You ask the man.
"Because you are following a misguided path. You needed an adjustment." He replies. He opens the door and takes a step out. You continue in your pursuit, just a few feet behind him.

A. "Who are you?"
B. "Who is they?"
C. "What adjustment? Misguided path?"

"What adjustment? A misguided path?" You ask, with an air of urgency surrounding you and him.
"The people I work for have intentions for you. Your life is to follow a certain path in the hopes you'll achieve what we need." He again replies. He continues walking, onto the roadway. It is apparent that he came here without any form of transport, but how?

A. "Who are you?"
B. "Who is they? The people you work for?"
C. "What path is it that is intended for me?"

"What path is it that is intended for me?" You ask this strange man.
"A path of saving this wretched planet. We want to know if you are ready." He continues to walk into the desert, seemingly without any point or reason. You continue walking toward him. You feel very hot and the dust blows into your face a little, but you could only imagine how he feels in that trench coat.

A. "Who are you?"
B. "Who is they? The people you work for?"
C. "Ready for what?"
