The life and times of the Vanguards, a gang struggling to survive in the wastelands of Evan, based on the game Darkwind by Psychic Software

The Vanguards of Darkwind

The Vanguards of Darkwind are a gang in the post-apocalyptic world of Evan. After a catastrophic solar flare, the Earth is reduced to irradiateed deserts, with only a handful of human survivors eking out an pitiful existence. Into this world emerged a new breed of warrior. Men and women who drove the powerful cars of yesteryear, reinforced with armour and festooned with heavy weaponry. The Death Racers.

This blog tells the story of the Vangaurds, led by Howard Spicer, as the struggle to make their their mark in a competitive and brutal world.
