About The Event

About Nineveh: A Conflict Over Water

Wet  areas got wetter and dry areas got drier. The rich got richer, and the  poor got poorer. And they all met in Nineveh. A massive global drought  combined with an epic contamination of the world’s limited fresh water  supply combined with the privatization of the remaining unpolluted  aquifers has created a crisis of biblical proportions. As a result,  water has been priced beyond the affordability of the masses, forcing  them to collect rainwater which constitutes the new contraband. With a  mind-altering drug introduced into the limited public supply, there were  few resisters that dared to defy the ultimate fascist system.

The  Resistance is led by Ndbele, a gifted teacher and sage. His daughter  Evolon is his greatest warrior, and Bethlehem is his most trusted ally.  Nineveh is ruled ruthlessly by Nimrod, the head of the Global Water  Corporation. With Canaan, the leader of his Security Forces, he has a  complete stranglehold on the world’s water market. He has only one  weakness, his nymphomaniac son Saisir.
