The future of the gz universe

What do you think will happen in the future of the universe in generation zero? will it be like a red dawn scenario or will the Swedish armed forces retake the islands?
Or is the rescistance the ones that will save östertörn?
Or is Fnix going to try to expand outside östertörn?
And if Fnix is destroyed then what will happen to östertörn?
What do you think?

There are already several topics in the forums that have discussed the same ideas,
topic 1: Why not nuke Ostertorn?/ Is this Just a Political Battle?
topic 2: Mainland and army

These are quite a good read.

I think the Soviets will get involved and try to steel the robot tech, leaving the it up to the resistance to stop them and destroy the robots before the Soviets can get them.

well i think that the resistance should militarize themselfs before they engage the russians, like using swedish army equipment. And there is survivors that are soldiers so they could train the others

Ever heard of a saying: “Enemy of my enemy is my friend.” ?

Since Resistance is fighting against FNIX and Soviet troops are also fighting against FNIX (since FNIX has killed both), it’s only logical that Resistance and Soviets join together against FNIX. Moreover since FNIX is one of the biggest threats in Östertörn.

Btw, calling the Soviet troops as Russians isn’t correct due to the date in the GZ. In GZ, it’s end of 1989 and at that time, Soviet Union (USSR - Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) was still a thing. Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, after which, it became Russia.

@Swe111 What resistance?
The 4 teens are the only ones actually destroying the machines :sweat_smile:
The rest, the Swedish army, NATO, USSR and the pitiful “Resistance” only serve as ammo boxes.
WE are the RESISTANCE, the rest is scenery :stuck_out_tongue::wink: .


My bad, you’re correct🤣!!!

You’re probably right. The resistance wouldn’t stand a chance against the Soviet army.:grinning:

Yes ofc but what if the soviets only sees us as scavengers and criminals?

And what do you alll think will happen to östertörn if it gets liberated from fnix? will civilisation come back? or will the island be left to rot?

They would probably require us to surrender our firearms and throw us in prison until said liberation is successful. Ostertorn will probably be left to rot with or without Soviet intervention.

If that should happen, it’s game over, literally. We need FNIX and it’s machines to play the game as it is. Take out FNIX and it’s machines and all what you have left - is scenic walking simulator.

“Us” as in “player chars”? If so, i think Soviets would see us as meddling kids and nothing more.

yeah but i mean in not a game way, like lore way will life return? and “us” i mean the survivors and the player

Life always returns.

Best IRL example would be Pripyat. Sure, it took Chernobyl disaster for people to vacate the area but 30+ years later, “life” (nature) has returned to Pripyat. It actually has taken it completely over, despite the initial high dose of radiation and current lasting radiation.

I wouldn’t consider myself (player char) as part of the resistance and considering player char as survivor is also questionable.

Well i think that is for the player to decide, like mine is a swedish soldiers that hasnt given up fighting and works with the resistance to take back östertörn, and if someone else dont want to be in the resistance then it is just fine, it is their survivor, their charakter (problably didnt spell that right)

Since devs haven’t placed player chars into any faction, it is for players to decide for themselves to whom their char is affiliated with.
Mine have designation of “F-X” (further reading).


If the FNIX and machines are gone, Swedish Armed Forces will reclaim Östertörn. However, if civilians (those few that escaped/survived) are allowed to return - is another question. My guess, the entire Östertörn is sealed off and no civilians are allowed to return, ever. E.g similar to Chernobyl and Fukushima exclusion zones.


yeah thats sounds a possible outcome, cool charakter btw, so your are a machine built by Fnix to spy on the resistance?

This is a very likely scenario, that nobody is allowed to return. That Östertörn will be turned into an Exclusion Zone. FNIX might never be defeated, just confined to Östertörn. Has FNIX managed to go beyond the archipelago? I seem to recall reading some entries that the Swedish military is fighting robots on the mainland.

I created that character biography thread, mine is at the top! I’d love to hear what you think of her.
