That is what I was referencing... not the syndrome as an apocalypse, sorry I wasn't clear. A lot of times folks (and I) struggle with how to kill all the GPS/connectivity to make the T2k world properly isolated-feeling. With all the EMP shielding nowadays, the simple EMP of a nuke just doesn't cut it anymore.

A general Twilight War coupled with the syndrome helps quite a bit.
