Reformed Republic of the United States
Status: Disputed Territory
This aint the America you grew up with. What can I say, it got used up. Things get scarce, people get down right ornery. At least that’s how I see it. When there aint enough to go ‘round, people intend to fight fer whatever is left to them. Take this here land you see before you. Use to be called America’s bread basket. Now, just try to get anything to grow in those God-forsaken hills. Nothing but scrub-grass savanna and rocky deserts now. Folk round here gotta fight just to get enough to eat.
Makes you wonder why this place been getting a might interesting as of late. You got the Corporate Alliance to the East. They already took everything east of the Mississippi and they aim to move West. What’s left of the United States took up residence in Lawrence, Kansas and they’re resisting as hard as they can, but I hear tell Iowa’s due to fall any day now.
If that aint enough, old tribes that used to live on these plains suddenly appeared. Well, I guess they never left. They just been forced to the arse end of the world for nigh on two-hundred years. But a culture tied to the land that close don’t just go away. They wait until the time is right. A few years back they got together and formed the Sioux Coalition and they intend to take back what is thiers. I recon if there gonna be a last stand now, it’ll make what happened to Custer seem like a bad saloon brawl.
So why the hell would anyone set foot here? Well, between you and me, they say that there’s a treasure out there somewhere. Some say it’ll make a man richer then a three-tongued whore. Some say it might even turn the tide of this here civil war. Don’t know what it is, myself but people are coming for miles around to see if they can’t find it. To speak true, it’s getting a little crowded around here.
This is a world a person could make a name for themselves if they’re crazy enough. But life is cheap nowadays. Anyone who sets foot east of Omaha is like to end up food for the birds. Wait, you’re not actually thinking about looking are yah?
Game Notes: It’s the old world meets the new. Hackers on horseback. Gunslingers of the old west mixing it up with a modern military force.
Anything goes so long as it makes sense. Old tech… hell yes. Modern tech… so long as you can power it. Future tech? As long as you can explain it.
Got a lot of cards to get you all started but, as always, feel free to throw whatever you want into the mix.
