A Little Background Detail
The citizens of New York have woken up and realized that surrounding their entire city is surrounded by a clear dome. Even though it is the city that never sleeps, no one knows where it came from or how it appeared. The roads leading of the city: in rubble. The highest buildings: dwarfed. The boats that were around the dock: sunken.
People are pretty freaked out and no one knows what to do. At first they wait for news from outside explaining what happened but they soon realize that no radio signals can go though the dome, They are cut off from the rest of the world. People are becoming scared, they are looking for news from the mayor on the subject, but nobody knows anything, or if they do, no one is talking. Theories are rising about the dome some say it's the work of god, others say aliens some even think the government is responsible.
How it happened is irrelevant. If it was caused by mankind, it isn't something they can fix. It just as easily could have been caused by something across the galaxy and they would be just as screwed.
The initial shock has worn off and the question on everyone's mind must be asked. How long can the people of New York last under this god forsaken dome?
Some Details on the Dome
- The Dome is made of 100% hand-wavium, clear and indestructible.
- The 'Dome' is really a sphere, thus it can not be gone under.
- Nothing can go in or out, they are limited to what they can make and stuck with their wastes
- At the top of the dome are small, 6 inch wide holes that allow fresh rain and air to enter.
There are a limited amount of supplies, eventually without farmland, they will run out of supplies. So my question is simple, how long can they last? What can they do to help themselves?
