River's Edge is a small town, so named because it is on the edge of a river. It is surrounded by seventy miles of woods, with only two roads leading out of it.
Early History Edit
River's Edge is likely an older town, or at least the nearby area has been settled for quite a long time; Old Man Rickett, who lived just outside its borders claims that the surrounding woodland has been owned by his family for generations.
Recent History Edit
On April 5th, 2007, the local newspaper, the River's Edge Dispatch, reported an infestation of rodents and other pests in the downtown area, near the mills. Days later, the military was sent to allegedly "help" the problem, and around the same time, the virus carried by many of the pests spread to human residents, turning them into cannibilistic monsters who travel in swarms, and who are nicknamed "bees" for this reason. Families who survived the catastrophe attempted to escape, but many were stopped and killed by the soldiers, and the town was put under quarantine.
