This is a collab. Feel free to write your side of the story here, or make pictures and comics about it on the Gallery.
Bombs of mutagen gas dropped on April 16th 2081.
In 2081 an unknown powerful group of radicals bombed every country with a mutagen gas that began to mutate the planet. Some people mutated, some mutated, just not visibly, some didn’t mutate at all. The variety of mutations, and the reactions of others to these mutations, caused a death toll of 50 million in the first day. This, paired with the mutation and change of many ecosystems, caused many governments to collapse and chaos to ensue. This story is about the planet rebuilding.
I will update the factions if new ones surface.
United States Restoration Corp: Their goal is to restore America to its former glory. All mutants should be purged. The CDT and Vintage Highwaymen are mild nuisances. They are spread nationwide.
USRC Ranking System:
Regular Army Ranking System
Special Commands (Defined by Texas Cities):
Lieutenants: Small Towns (Fredricksburg)
Captain: Large Towns (Dallas)
Colonel: Capitols (Austin)
General of the Army (Washington DC)
New York Divison:
Captain Patrick Carson
Civilian Defense Taskforce: Their goal is to protect Wastelanders and friendly mutants from the USRC and anyone else who wants to harm them. They are spread nationwide.
Sergeant Major Angelica Diesel
New York Division
The Vintage Highwaymen: Turning to armed robbery to stay alive, these men robbed abandoned museums of their WW2 equipment to protect themselves. They are localized in the New Paso area, but are spreading throughout Texas and the Southwest.
Nigel J. Thompson
Wastelanders: These are just ordinary humans trying to survive. No particular side.
Mutants: There are 3 types of mutants: Friendly, Neutral, and Hostile. Friendly mutants just want to survive, like the Wastelanders. Neutral mutants want to be left alone, and won’t attack until they feel threatened. Hostile mutants will attack for food or just for giggles. Extremely dangerous!
Lord Irving (A Sabree Character)
City of Sub-Harenae:
Community largely comprised of mutants living in abandoned sewers hiding from the USRC. Located in the sewer systems below New Paso.
Socialist Soviet Remnants: Soviet Remnant radicals who infiltrated America before the bombs went off. Now they are still trying to accomplish their goal of dissolving what’s left of the government. We don’t know how far they spread, but it can be assumed nationwide.
The Grub Tribe: Localized tribe of mutant monkeys residing in the Franklin Mountains.
Murp (Also Murple)
Margo's Mercs: A small group of soldiers mainly comprised of retired and/or rejected USRC troopers. They insist on shooting anything in their crosshairs. They are localized in Ciudad Juarez.
Post-Human Union: A band of mutant revolutionaries who believe that mutants are better adapted to survive in - and rule - the Wasteland. Though they don't outright hate all humans, they tend to think themselves better than them, and actively seek to destroy people and organisations who treat mutants as lesser beings. Localized in New Paso, but will likely spread.
Scrapper’s Coalition: The Scrapper’s Coalition is a nation-wide trading faction with a small presence in Mexico and Canada. They make regular trips into the exclusion zones. They have invented their own brand of light power armor, and are selling it for $200. They are pro mutant and have their main base in Utah, but Fernando’s group is in Sierra Blanca.
Members of Sierra Blanca group:
Marco “The Rider” Tucci
Sierra Nevada Range Survivors: A Mutant and Human society running off of misc supplies and materials. Located in the Sierra Nevada Range.
Here are the list of dealers. I will update this if new ones surface. You can create your own dealer!
Master Dale Adams: Shifty roaming dealer who has really good stock. Don’t ask where he got it.
Netgaris: A Mutant trying to make his way by selling weapons and supplies for cheap. Sells out of overturned hummer.
Agent Z19: Doesn’t sell things but will try to recruit you into the SSR
Captain Roebuck : Doesn’t sell things but will try to recruit you into the USRC.
Sergeant Major Angelica Diesel: Doesn’t sell things but will try to recruit you into the CDT.
Lieutenant Colonel Margo: Doesn’t sell things but will try to recruit you into Margo’s Mercs.
“Fernando”: Doesn’t sell things, but will try to recruit you into the SC.
”The General”: Doesn’t sell things, but will try to recruit you into the VH, or simply give you bounties.
Dr. Jackson Titan: Mysterious and reclusive, but highly technologically advanced, if you can find him he’ll hook you up with a sweet set of survival armor.
Tradesmen: These guys will take whatever you want to sell and give you money for it. Supplied generously by the USRC and CDT.
This story takes place in El Paso TX.
This is a list of important locations in the story:
Netgaris’ Shop: An overturned hummer in the middle of the Wasteland. Now abandoned, it is refuge for the occasional wandering Wastelander.
Fort Bliss: The base where the USRC controls operations in New Paso.
Blackie Chesher Park: The center of CDT operations in the New Paso.
Abandoned Sewers: Accessed through a manhole near Netgaris’ Shop. Home to mostly mutants but also some humans called Sub-Harenaens. Also a refuge for the CDT.
The Franklin Mountains : Refuge for mutant animals running from the USRC.
City of New Paso: Under the protection of the USRC, New Paso is home to many who just want to live as normal lives as they can.
Old El Paso Zoo: El Paso’s abandoned zoo. Home to mutant animals. USRC have yet to gain access.
Overgrowth: An area in between Fort Bliss and Blackie Chesher Park. It was once highly contested by the USRC and CDT, but as the plants grew more and more, the two factions wiped their hands of the place. It is now a lawless spit of land filled with thieves, mercenaries, and monsters. You may cross it, if you think you’re up to the challenge.
Scrapper’s Sierra Blanca Outpost: Fernando’s main base. Central hub for Texas operations.
