      ah yes the Elvi or Elvis Cult. on my game world it's a semi nomadic paciefic religon.
      it all started with a survivor who came across a mall where the conecting wall between a religious book store and a music store had colapsed. the survivor was beging to suffer a fever from an infection so he wasn't quite as carefull as he might have been about the loose pages he collected. well later on he was taken into a farm stead where he died. as his belongings were added into the farms stores the pages went into storage. years later
      youngsters started sorting them matching the paper types and then again later for content.
      the result was a bit loony in which Elvis was another son of God his apostles were John, Peter, Paul, Ringo, Janice, Buddy, Richie, Gene, Chuck, Jimmy,Jerry, and Yoko.
      Yoko played the Judas role selling out John to Jedger Hoovah the paunchy pirate
      in Nu Ork with things proceeding from there pretty much back on track.
      the Elvi dress in the white, high collared jumpsuits with elaborate decorations. they behave like the Healers and have the same reactions from most comunitys, though with a bit of
      increadulas head shakeing. when asked wheare their Kingdom is the answer is
      "why the Kingdom of Rock and Roll, and Rock and Roll is a state of mind!"

      That is cool!  Of course, this attaboy comes from a guy who designed an adventure centered around the PCs finding a juke box so they could hear the prophetic voice of The King (an old Elvis song)....... ........

      It would be interesting if a cryptic alliance bloomed from the group after the Big Whoops.
      Perhaps, A) trying to find the original clock to turn the hands back and/or, B) travelling back through time to move the hands back.  Therefore preventing the end from coming.
      Just a thought from a sleep deprived mind,

      Scientists to Move Doomsday Clock Forward
      WASHINGTON (Jan. 12) - The keepers of the "Doomsday Clock" plan to move its hands forward next Wednesday to reflect what they call worsening nuclear and climate threats to the world.
      The symbolic clock, maintained by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, currently is set at seven minutes to midnight, with midnight marking global catastrophe.

      In a news release previewing an event next Wednesday, the group said the change was based on "worsening nuclear, climate threats" to the world.

      "The major new step reflects growing concerns about a 'Second Nuclear Age' marked by grave threats, including: nuclear ambitions in Iran  and North Korea , unsecured nuclear materials in Russia and elsewhere, the continuing 'launch-ready' status of 2,000 of the 25,000 nuclear weapons held by the U.S. and Russia, escalating terrorism, and new pressure from climate change for expanded civilian nuclear power that could increase proliferation risks," the release reads.
      The clock was last pushed forward by two minutes to seven minutes to midnight in 2002 amid concerns about the proliferation of nuclear, biological and other weapons and the threat of terrorism.

      When it was created by the magazine's staff in 1947, it was initially set at seven minutes to midnight and has moved 17 times since then.

      It was as close as two minutes to midnight in 1953 following U.S. and Soviet hydrogen bomb tests, and as far away as 17 minutes to midnight in 1991 after the superpowers reached agreement on a nuclear arms reductions.
