Post-Apocalyptic fiction is concerned with the end of civilization through either war, natural disaster, plague, or alien invasion. The tale follows a main character trying to survive in a broken world. Often the MC will meet new people, but they will either betray or die on the MC. Often, the MC will try to find a way to rebuild from the ashes. This subgenre is often associated with Dystopian and Dying Earth genres due to the close similarities. In this genre, technology is either non-existent or scarce, and people are often struggling to find food and raise crops in an agrarian society (if there is a re-established society at all).
