Background information

History

20 years ago (they're all going to start like this, aren't they?), despite the wartime ban on missionary work, Jacob and a small group of teenage youth (ranging from 15-19) were sent from the United States on a "Missions Trip" for their church, to provide extra hands at a church based hospital during the war. They were there for about a week before the nukes dropped.

Of his missions group, Jacob was the only survivor. Unable to find transport home, he hitch hiked across Europe and into the USSR, surviving months of near starvation, exposure to the elements, and a handful of colds and flus. He was able to find shelter in an old cave, obviously used for shelter for other war refugees by the amount of garbage and fire pits he found, and he set up camp as best he could.

It was in that cave that the visions came. Maybe they were from his god, maybe they were hallucinations from everything he'd gone through, but when the fog cleared, he was under the impression that WW3 was the biblical Rapture, and he was a prophet of god.

Now he leads a small group of zealots, mostly doing good deeds though they're not above thievery to feed and clothe themselves, in hopes to find the place they believe Jesus will return. Jacob often misquotes the bible, most often from the book of Revelations (obviously), though he's fond of mentioning that God sent rainbows to prove he wouldn't punish the world with water, but with fire.

Ties to other NPCs or Political groups

  • Jacob leads a band of religious zealots

Relationship to the PC

  • Jacob can be met traveling from one town to another, leading his band of zealots. He will immediately approach the PC, without provocation, to try and preach to the player.
  • If the player is receptive to his preaching, Jacob will offer the player the quest to help him find copies of the bible. (Bibles should be easier to find than other books, given that people will be looking for hope, but books in general should be hard to find.) If the player does that, Jacob will ask the player to help him find a place to call his church.
  • Jacob doesn't seem to care about gender: a follower is a follower.

Quest options

  • Find bibles
  • Help find a church location
  • Spread the message
  • Assassinate the Anti-Christ
