Michał ‘Havoc’ Niespodziewany
Many of us are interested in the post-apocalyptic subject, therefore we take part in LARP, play computer games set in this world or watch films and read books. We have asked a question “what else is there?”, what can we do more and how to make the interest in the post-apocalyptic an integral part of our everyday life? Thanks to a brief review of ideas which stand for The Order of Sacred Fire we will try to present our own vision.
