    Election Year: Warlords of North America

    Next Update: 02/20/2019 or When 70%+ Orders are Received

    The Story


    Summary

    The year is 2020, and the world has entered into a new Dark Age. For reasons unknown, the governments of China and Russia launched their nuclear missiles at each other. Nearly every major population center in both countries was devastated by atomic fire, while the rest of the world screamed for calm. After the first volley of missiles, others hit old Russian priority targets from the Cold War in the Middle East and Europe, destroying many of the old capitals and historic centers of the West. Some conventional and minor nuclear fighting took place in the aftermath, as Israel was forced to deploy its own nuclear arsenal in the wake of a renewed invasion of its borders and a conflict between India and Pakistan also went nuclear.

    Spared thanks to a top secret anti-missile system developed after the Cold War, the United States, Canada, and Mexico were completely protected from nuclear armageddon. What should have been the start of a golden age instead has descended into chaos. Economic turmoil and simmering tensions exploded into violence in most major cities, and many military forces had been wiped out or stranded abroad during the other global conflicts. Many surviving soldiers in other countries had had to fight and steal to get aboard ships that they simply would run aground on US coastlines, as the ports were in flames. The President of the United States vanished while being transported from the White House to Camp David, along with the Vice President and Cabinet. Congress has been slain by rioters or dispersed to their home states. With the military in shambles, Canada and Mexico in similar chaos, and no one left to help, it is up to you to restore order in the New World so that modern human civilization has a chance to continue.

    Faction Set-up

    Faction Name:
    Leader Name:
    Leader Background:
    : Choose one from Politician, Military (Specify Branch of Service), Law Enforcement, Criminal, Businessman, Survivalist, Clergy, Agitator, Engineer, Teamster, or Journalist
    Starting Location: Any major city on the starting map locations.
    Background: Optional, story based

    Spoiler :

    It should be noted that your selection of starting types and location will determine what gear and equipment your faction possesses at the start of the game. The starting city is by far the most important determining factor of your stats. You will have manpower and resources based on the city, and more or less people to worry about depending on where you select. You can choose a small town, if you want to play “Very Hard” mode, but I would recommend a major city. All factions will start out with enough food, fuel, and medicine to keep their population fully supplied for three months. They also start with a facility related to the economy of their starting location.

    Leader Background Descriptions

    Politician: You were an elected member of government, whether state or federal, prior to the Collapse and thus retain the most Legitimacy of all of the possible backgrounds.

    Military: As a surviving member of the military you have a small amount of starting Legitimacy, and a small stockpile of high end weaponry and well trained soldiers, depending on your military branch. Choose between Army, Navy, or Air Force.

    Law Enforcement: As local law enforcement stepped up to restore order, you are one of those who succeeded, usurping elected government in favor of the hard hand of the law. You have a small amount of Legitimacy, but have a moderate amount of somewhat trained personnel, and a large stockpile of decent weaponry and equipment.

    Criminal: When chaos reigns, those who seize opportunities come out ahead, and you were what was once considered a criminal, but now have clawed to the top. As a criminal you start with no Legitimacy, but you receive a moderate stockpile of Gold, and large stockpiles of Medicine and low-tier weaponry.

    Businessman: You were a wealthy person before the Collapse, and your wealth has helped you to maintain loyalty among your closest compatriots. As a member of the pre-Collapse elite, you have a small amount of Legitimacy to begin with and the largest stockpile of gold of all of the backgrounds.

    Survivalist: They called you crazy, but you knew the Collapse was coming, so who’s crazy now? As a Survivalist, you were prepared for the end and have managed to put together large stockpiles of Food and Ammunition and a small stockpile of Medicine.

    Clergy: When people are at their darkest hour, they often turn towards a church for salvation. As a member of the clergy you have a moderate amount of starting Legitimacy, and small stockpiles of Food, Ammunition, and Medicine in addition to base starting stockpiles.

    Agitator: The government was corrupt and you spoke the truth, leading revolutionaries to bring about the fall of the old world. Now you have the chance to reshape the world as you would have it. You start with a moderate amount of Legitimacy, and a large stockpile of low-tier weapons.

    Engineer: As a relatively anonymous worker, you have since risen to the top after the Collapse with a no-nonsense approach and access to raw materials. You have a small amount of Legitimacy, but have the largest starting stockpiles of Materials and Electronics.

    Teamster: When the Collapse occurred, people still needed their food and mail delivered. You were a trucker or other transporter of goods, and have been trying to keep the roads clear. You have a moderate amount of Legitimacy, and large stockpiles of Fuel and low-tier vehicles.

    Journalist: As a trusted voice on the Internet, TV, newspaper, or radio, you have managed to rally people around you in the wake of the Collapse. You have a moderate amount of Legitimacy, with a small supply of Electronics.

    The Rules
    Spoiler :

    Legitimacy

    Your Legitimacy is a representation of the political capital your faction possesses. Legitimacy is used predominantly to expand and tax your citizenry. Expansion can be expensive if you attempt to outright conquer the neighboring cities and regions of North America. Alternatively, you can use 10 Legitimacy to peacefully annex a city that neighbors your borders. For example, a faction that controls only Boston can use 10 Legitimacy to annex Worchester or Providence, but would be unable to annex New York City. This is a good way to expand, as you would receive all population and facilities in the region around the new city intact, rather than having to fight for them. For taxation, see the “Gold” section below.

    Legitimacy is gained by having control of major cities and important landmarks. Your government will be increasingly recognized the more key sites you control, and will accumulate Legitimacy monthly, unless you are short on key resources. When war erupts between factions, a faction with higher legitimacy may find the population supporting them in city combat or other situations, and thus weaken the enemy’s attack or defense.

    Manpower

    Your manpower is an abstraction of the amount of people that you have available for taxation and recruitment into the armed forced. Due to the small time frame of the game, manpower does not increase except by auction, random event, or acquisition of new territory. Your manpower is precious and can be lost through combat or bombardment even if they haven’t been drafted. Keep in mind that manpower that has been converted to Personnel do not pay taxes.

    Gold

    The dollar is no longer a valid currency, as people struggle to eat, much less pay each other for goods and services. Despite the chaos caused by the Collapse, people still need a medium of exchange and in civilized area, gold is the mainstay currency. The amount of gold is initially finite, and can be only produced in a single way or recovered from old mines and installations. The way you obtain gold is by levying taxes upon your manpower. You receive $1 in gold from each manpower whenever you choose to spend 1 Legitimacy to tax. Each time you do this a turn, the Legitimacy cost doubles. Therefore, if you have 800 Manpower, you can receive $800 if you spend 1 Legitimacy. If you do it a second time, you received $800 for 2 Legitimacy, and a third time you receive $800 for 4 Legitimacy. Obviously, the larger the population, the greater the reward for doing this.

    Gold is required in a number of different tasks, from training elite soldiers to the production of electronics. Some parts of the world are still barely surviving, and enterprising merchants from overseas may occasionally offer advanced weapons or resources for sale. When these opportunities emerge, you will have the chance to outbid your rival factions by spending gold on the auctions. Auctions will appear in the update, showing the available supplies and weapons that can be purchased with each update. Whoever bids the highest amount for the supplies and weapons will receive them.

    Supplies in Their Natural Habitats

    Food is one of the most important elements available to a faction. There’s a lot of hungry people in North America and they all need to be fed. Each Manpower consumes 1 Food per turn, and if you are unable to provide Food, the situation will deteriorate rapidly. The good news is that your faction won’t all die out if you can’t feed them as people will turn to gardening, cannibalism, and eating house pets, but your Manpower will start declining rapidly.

    Fuel is required for the operation of any vehicles that you may have in your arsenal. It is also used to maintain power on the home front. People like it when the lights are on, as it provides some semblance of normalcy. Therefore, every 100 Manpower will consume 1 Fuel (rounded up) per turn. If you are unable to meet this demand, you will not generate Legitimacy. You can always choose to suspend civilian Fuel usage, should you require the stockpile for military purposes, but at the cost of no longer generating Legitimacy.

    Materials are used in the production and construction of nearly every single weapon, vehicle, or facility. This represents predominantly raw materials that do not require sophisticated methods of refinement. They are consumed only in the construction of other items.

    Rare Materials are sophisticated components required in the manufacture of advanced vehicles, weapons, and electronics. They require the refinement of basic Materials to be created, though in some very rare circumstances, they can be bought or mined from a few rare sources.

    Electronics represents high end sophisticated computers that are required in the construction of advanced weapons and facilities. They require both Gold and Rare Materials for construction, and an elaborate facility for their creation.

    Ammunition is required for the use of all weapons. Without it, your guns are just fairly useless clubs. Different types of weapons expend ammunition quicker, and you lose ammunition based on how many battles you fight in a turn and how many weapons are used. You can fight without Ammunition, but it will be a very difficult struggle.

    Medicine is a strictly civilian resource and represents the amount of drugs you have to keep plague and disease at bay. This ranges from insulin to vaccines, all of which are needed to help keep one of the Four Horsemen away. You will consume 1 Medicine for every 100 Manpower you possess in your faction, and if Medicine runs out, you will start being at risk of disease breaking out and causing you to lose manpower or skilled personnel.

    Personnel

    Your Personnel stat represents the actual members of your armed forces and their levels of training. Each level of recruit requires more gold and manpower to bring into play, representing the increased amount of support and training that they require to become effective at a higher skill level. Some equipment and vehicles require a larger amount of high skill personnel to be used. The better trained your forces, the more likely they’ll win fights against larger enemy groups. The types of available personnel are below.

    Draftee: Draftees can be recruited without any expense of Gold, and you can receive 100 Draftees with the expense of 1 Manpower. Draftees are people with barely any training, and cannot use the majority of available weapons and equipment.

    Militia: Militia costs 1 Manpower and $10 for 100 Militia. These are people with some limited training and can operate some mid-tier weaponry and vehicles, but most advanced weapons are well beyond their abilities.

    Soldiers: Soldiers cost 1 Manpower and $100 for 100 Soldiers, requires a Training Camp. These are people with generalized combat training. They can use the majority of weapons and equipment, but aircraft and heavy vehicles require a bit more knowledge.

    Specialists: Specialists cost 1 Manpower and $500 for 100 Specialists, requires a Training Camp. These are people with advanced training in combat tactics and equipment. They can operate all weapon types and vehicles available.

    Special Forces: Special Forces cost 1 Manpower and $5,000 for 100 Special Forces, requires a Training Camp. These soldiers are the elite of the military and not only can operate all types of weapons and vehicles, but they are also hardened warriors capable of taking on many times their number in combat.

    Military Equipment

    The United States, being the home of the gun nut, has a large amount of guns just lying around the place. Furthermore, there are numerous military and National Guard armories and bases throughout the continent. It is assumed that regardless of the skill, all personnel have at least Civilian Weapons available to them. You do not require the production of high end weapons to equip your army. When you defeat another faction's army, their weapons become your own, with the exception of those that were destroyed during combat. The list of goodies you can use to fight are in a below post.

    Exploration and Expansion

    Unlike in my previous post-apocalyptic games, salvaging is not going to be your primary source of income. The majority of infrastructure is still intact, though many factories and bases have been overrun by rioters or destroyed in the chaos of the Collapse. By using recon equipment or patrols, you can discover what resources may exist in neighboring cities and locations. Alternatively, you can be surprised simply by rolling in and taking over, and seeing what’s there afterward. The more you expand, the more resources and facilities that will fall under your control, and the more ability you have to establish yourself as a legitimate successor to the United States or other nations. Weapons, vehicles, and resources can all be found by exploration.

    Expansion can be conducted in one of two ways. The peaceful way is to simply spend 10 Legitimacy to establish yourself as the ruler of a neighboring province, using your position to demonstrate your legal position as a ruler. This can only be done if the neighboring city is not currently under the control of another faction. Alternatively, if you lack Legitimacy or another faction has beaten you to the punch, you can send in the troops and simply take over. A word of warning, while the lack of another faction does mean that there will be no organized forces to oppose a hostile takeover, you will face losses through combat as the local population resists you. The amount of resistance you face will depend on the size of the population in the area, and heavily urban areas will result in heavy losses, so be prepared.

    You can take over as many unclaimed cities as you’d like in your turn, as long as they neighbor an already controlled province or you have the naval equipment needed to take an island.

    Warfare After the Collapse

    The majority of military equipment available is based on modern day weaponry and tactics. How you use said weapons is up to you, but you do have a variety of options. You can target enemy facilities and units with surgical strikes or charge in with overwhelming force to claim their stuff. The key things to remember is that urban warfare can be expensive especially to armored vehicles without appropriate support. Manpower and facilities can also be destroyed in combat, weakening the faction who’s territory is being fought over.

    One special weapon is the Nuclear Missile. Due to the circumstances of the Collapse, the majority of the United States nuclear arsenal is completely intact. However, during the last days of organization, a group of dedicated soldiers encoded and locked down the missile silos to the best of their ability. To access any of the nuclear weapons present would require substantial work to first find a hidden silo, and then gain entry, followed by actually arming and reprogramming the missiles for use. These represent tactical nuclear missiles, rather than massive ICBMs, but are more than enough to destroy most major cities. Using a nuclear weapon will cause an automatic -5 Legitimacy to hit your stats.

    Challenges and Updates

    Ask anyone, as long as my interest is held in a forum game, I update regularly. My goal is multiple updates a week, especially in early stages before factions meet each other. As the world expands and more factions and settlements are added, we will settle into a weekly update tradition. I don’t know how most games do it on this newfangled version of CFC, but I expect orders on the thread in spoilers or via Private Message if you want to be enigmatic to everyone. I consider it a supreme dick move to look at someone’s orders if they post them on the thread and will find a way to punish you if I don’t kick you out of the game entirely.

    Stuff and Things of North America​


    These are the various weapons and buildings which can be salvaged or built by the factions of the North America, including you. Some can only be scavenged, so keep this in mind when you're drooling over the possibilities. Typically the more expensive the weapon is, the more powerful it is in combat. Aspiring warlords should take note, however, that under the right circumstances it is possible for you to fail if the other person has cheaper weapons but better tactics. Each weapon or vehicle has the ammunition cost for each battle usage and the minimum amount of training required to use the weapon. Vehicles also have a combat fuel expense which is only applied if the vehicle is used in offensive operations or defensive combat. They also have a cost and requisite building facilities that are needed for production. Some weapons and vehicles also require a certain amount of crewmen to be used correctly.

    Infantry Weapons

    These are weapons that are typically employed by single soldiers and used in infantry combat. These are the basic equipment that every soldier can be equipped with.

    Spoiler :

    Civilian Weapons: Civilian Weapons represent the based handguns, shotguns, and other readily available firearms throughout North America. Due to the sheer amount of these available, these are considered to be the default weapon of any Personnel not equipped with something else. These are not constructed, but are just there. Lack of standardization results in higher ammo consumption.
    Training Level: Draftee
    Ammo Expense: 2

    Light Weapon: A Light Weapon represents something used by gangsters and protection services that are of a higher quality than your typical handgun. These are things like submachine guns, publically sold assault rifles, and advanced civilian style firearms. They are more powerful than basic Civilian Weapons and can be easily produced at a weapons plant.
    Training Level: Draftee
    Ammo Expense: 3
    Cost: 1 Material for 5 Light Weapons
    Requisite: Weapons Plant

    Improvised Explosive (IE) Weapon: An Improvised Explosive Weapon can be a wide variety of different devices and equipment used to make things blow up. They are effective against lightly armored vehicles and even against heavier armor if a lot is used. They have a very short range and are not effective in open combat, but excel in urban warfare.
    Training Level: Militia
    Ammo Expense: 5
    Cost: 1 Material for 1 IE Weapon
    Requisite: None

    Assault Rifle: Assault rifles military grade weapons with advanced optics and additional support for firepower. These are the foundation upon which a modern military is built. They require some minimal training for effective use, but are miles better and significantly more efficient in combat than civilian models of weaponry.
    Training Level: Soldier
    Ammo Expense: 1
    Cost: 1 Material for 1 Assault Rifle
    Requisite: Weapons Plant

    Light Machine Gun (LMG): A Light Machine Gun is a basic anti-personnel weapon that is fairly mobile and useful on unarmed light air and sea craft.

    Heavy Machine Gun (HMG): A Heavy Machine Gun offers devastating firepower that can tear through both infantry and light armor. It is one of the best weapons you could mount on a civilian aircraft or boat.
    Training Level: Soldier
    Ammo Expense: 10
    Cost: 2 Material, 1 Rare Material for 1 HMG
    Requisite: Weapons Plant

    Flamethrower: A Flamethrower offers a way for infantry to bust fortified locations and positions. Offering the best room clearing abilities out of any other weapons, they are the primary way to clear out a bunker if occupied by enemy forces. Flamethrowers use Fuel instead of Ammo in combat.
    Training Level: Soldier
    Fuel Expense: 2
    Cost: 1 Material, 1 Rare Material for 1 Flamethrower
    Requisite: Weapons Plant

    Anti-Tank (AT) Weapon: Anti-Tank Weapons come in a large number of varieties, but these are vital if your enemy has tanks and you do not. These are infantry’s only answer to a main battle tank and are most effective on the defense or in urban environs.
    Training Level: Specialist
    Ammo Expense: 10
    Cost: 2 Material, 1 Rare Material for 1 AT Weapon
    Requisite: Weapons Plant

    Anti-Air (AA) Weapon: Infantry Anti-Air Weapons are most effective against helicopters, but can be useful against older and slower airplanes as well. If you lack an air force, this could be your only protection.
    Training Level: Specialist
    Ammo Expense: 10
    Cost: 2 Material, 1 Rare Material for 1 AA Weapon
    Requisite: Weapons Plant

    Rocket Artillery: These weapons are based on the mass firing of highly inaccurate rockets at massed enemy targets. With a decent range, they are a very basic and easy to assemble form of artillery.
    Training Level: Militia
    Ammo Expense: 30
    Cost: 3 Material for 1 Rocket Artillery
    Requisite: Munitions Plant

    Mortar: Mortars are an old technology but easily built. They can be used to provide simple and accurate artillery support, when using spotters.
    Training Level: Soldier
    Crew: 3
    Ammo Expense: 20
    Cost: 4 Material for 1 Mortar
    Requisite: Weapons Plant
    Can be used to deliver any amount of Chemical Weapons against a target

    Howitzer: These are modern artillery pieces in their purest form, with high-end guidance and weapons systems. There is no better weapon for providing rapid fire support. However, without attached vehicles, they can be very difficult to move, so are best in a defensive position.
    Training Level: Specialist
    Crew: 5
    Ammo Expense: 40
    Cost: 10 Materials, 3 Rare Materials, 1 Electronics for 1 Howitzer
    Requisites: Advanced Weapons Plant
    Can be used to deliver any amount of Chemical Weapons against a target


    Automated Weapons

    Automated Weapons are weapons that require no crew nor any soldiers to actively use them. All you need is the appropriate facilities and equipment to bring these into play. If you do not have a proper launching platform for Automated Weapons, they cannot be used and will waste away in your stockpiles. Some warships and planes can be used as launch platforms.

    Spoiler :

    Tactical Ballistic Missile: A cruise missile is a precision weapon that can be fired at a specific target with unfailing accuracy. They are best used against facilities and warships. The only way to stop a cruise missile is with defensive systems. Cruise Missiles do not require Ammunition. They have a range of 600 miles.
    Cost: 5 Rare Materials, 1 Electronics for 1 Cruise Missile
    Requisites: Advanced Weapons Plant
    Can be used to deliver 10 Chemical Weapons to a target

    Nuclear Missile: A nuclear missile is not built, but is obtained from hacking into a nuclear silo. Once you have a nuclear silo under your control, you can expend the cost below to free up and reprogram one of the missiles to be used. You need an appropriate launch site to deploy a nuke. 5 Legitimacy and countless lives are lost if you deploy a nuclear weapon.
    Cost: 50 Electronics for 1 Nuclear Missile
    Requisites: Nuclear Silo

    Chemical Weapon: A chemical weapon is a deadly gas that wipes out unprotected enemy infantry and civilians. Advanced soldiers are more likely to survive a chemical attack, while draftees and manpower are highly unlikely to. Deploying chemical weapons in combat causes a loss of 2 Legitimacy. Chemical Weapons require either certain artillery or a Tactical Ballistic Missile to be deployed.
    Cost: 1 Rare Material for 5 Chemical Weapons
    Requisite: Chemical Weapons Plant

    Civilian Drone: A civilian drone is a simple unarmed device that is highly effective in recon operations. They cannot be used for combat purposes but are useful as a means for stealthy infiltration and scouting of enemy lines. Sadly, the noise they make is enough to attract hostile attention from alert enemy forces.
    Cost: 1 Electronics for 1 Civilian Drone
    Requisites: Think Tank

    Recon Drone: A Recon Drone is a military grade surveillance drone that uses a satellite link to stealthily provide constant up to date information on enemy positions. They also possess light armaments and can defend themselves if need be or undertake surgical strikes.
    Cost: 2 Materials, 1 Rare Materials, 2 Electronics for 1 Recon Drone
    Ammo Expense: 5
    Requisites: Satellite Uplink Center, Drone Command Center

    Attack Drone: An Attack Drone is a fast, heavily armed automated device that can launch nearly invisible and fast attacks on enemy forces. They emerge with complete surprise and can cause immediate devastation on their targets, whether infantry or armored.
    Cost: 5 Materials, 5 Rare Materials, 5 Electronics for 1 Attack Drone
    Ammo Expense: 10
    Requisites: Military Satellite Uplink Center, Drone Command Center, Advanced Weapons Plant
    Attack Drones can launch Tactical Ballistic Missiles


    Vehicles

    Vehicles consist of land based equipment such as cars and tanks. Many require a degree of training to use correctly, and otherwise will prove to be fairly useless without. Still, in open combat, a proper vehicle can turn the tide of battle. All vehicles will require at least some crew to operate, and have an amount of people they can transport. Crew do not count against transport capacity.
    Spoiler :

    Technical: A technical is a modified civilian vehicle such as a pickup truck or a semi-truck, converted with some very light armor and equipment that makes them useable in battle. They are good at towing, but do not come with weapons. You must equip one weapon to use on these vehicles, and the ammunition expense will be based on what weapon you attach.
    Training Level: Draftee
    Crew: 1
    Transport Capacity: 5
    Fuel Expense: 1
    Cost: 5 Materials

    Armored Car: An armored car is a variety of civilian vehicles including police vehicles and payroll transport. They have the same amount of armor as a Humvee, requiring less cost while providing significantly more protection than a Technical, being able to take indirect explosive fire. They lack a primary weapon and must be equipped with one.
    Training Level: Draftee
    Crew: 1
    Transport Capacity: 3
    Fuel Expense: 3
    Cost: 5 Materials
    Requisites: Vehicle Factory

    Humvee: The Humvee is a standard military transport vehicle, and comes with an attached light machine gun. They have the same level of armor as an Armored Car, and provide better fuel efficiency.
    Training Level: Militia
    Crew: 2
    Transport Capacity: 5
    Fuel Expense: 2
    Ammo Expense: 5
    Cost: 5 Materials
    Requisites: Vehicle Factory

    Armored Personnel Carrier (APC): An APC is an enclosed vehicle that specializes in transporting a large amount of people safely into battle. They have an attached anti-personnel cannon, though it is ineffective against armored vehicles. It has good armor that protects its cargo from lighter anti-armor weaponry.
    Training Level: Soldier
    Crew: 3
    Transport Capacity: 20
    Fuel Expense: 4
    Ammo Expense: 10
    Cost: 10 Materials, 1 Electronics
    Requisites: Weapons Plant, Heavy Vehicle Factory

    Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV): An Infantry Fighting Vehicle is a tracked vehicle that combines a large transport capacity with a heavy gun that can engage light tanks and other IFVs without difficulty. They can be chewed up by heavy armor, but otherwise are very useful in urban combat.
    Training Level: Specialist
    Crew: 3
    Transport Capacity: 10
    Fuel Expense: 5
    Ammo Expense: 10
    Cost: 10 Materials, 2 Electronics
    Requisites: Weapons Plant, Heavy Vehicle Factory

    Light Tank: A Light Tank is a fast and powerful tank that specializes in destroying light enemy armor. It is good at targeting APCs and IFVs. Light Tanks rarely fare well in urban combat.
    Training Level: Specialist
    Crew: 3
    Fuel Expense: 5
    Ammo Expense: 20
    Cost: 20 Materials, 2 Electronics
    Requisites: Weapons Plant, Heavy Vehicle Factory

    Main Battle Tank: The Main Battle Tank is the king of the battlefield, at least when there’s no aircraft present. In an open battle, and even in urban combat, the armor of the MBT is nigh undefeatable and it excels at destroying enemy land vehicles.
    Training Level: Specialist
    Crew: 4
    Fuel Expense: 5
    Ammo Expense: 30
    Cost: 30 Materials, 1 Rare Material, 3 Electronics
    Requisites: Advanced Weapons Plant, Heavy Vehicle Factory

    Self-Propelled (SP) Artillery: SP Artillery acts as a powerful and mobile artillery forced, with electronic guidance systems that use old satellites for personal targeting. With a combination of rockets and conventional artillery, these weapons can lay down firepower at an unmatched range against enemy ground forces.
    Training Level: Specialist
    Crew: 5
    Fuel Expense: 5
    Ammo Expense: 40
    Cost: 20 Materials, 2 Rare Materials, 4 Electronics
    Requisites: Advanced Weapons Plant, Heavy Vehicle Factory
    Can be used to deliver any amount of Chemical Weapons against a target

    Warships
    There’s a lot of oceans in the world. You need boats to go on the ocean, and a lot of boats can carry a lot of weapons. Boats are the best way to transport large numbers of people and equipment, especially when there’s no railroads working. Much of the United States Navy was wiped out during the Collapse, but some remains intact, while the facilities used to build these ships are still extant. It is assumed that when you are building ships that you are either refitting an older vessel or completing long-term construction on a new craft. Like Land Vehicles, most ships have some level of Transport Capacity, but also typically require a very large crew with a decent amount of training. Ships typically have the highest fuel, ammunition, and crew costs of all vehicles. In exchange, they have a ton of firepower and can be devastating against coastal forces and towns.

    Spoiler :

    Sailboat: The sailboat is the most common vessel on the seas, used for luxury excursions before the Collapse. Sailboats are the only vehicle that do not require Fuel for travel, being able to use sails to move slowly across the waves. These ships are the only option for those with low resources. Yachts have no attached weapons and weapons must be attached from the Infantry selection.

    Battleship: The battleship is an obsolete warship that possesses a large amount of heavy artillery power. Only a handful of these still exist in the world, and some are in dire need of refitting, but should one be brought back online, there are few warships which could match the sea to land support these can provide. The devastating firepower can also wreck all but the largest of ships and most extensive fortifications in only a few volleys. Due to the simplicity of the systems, the ship can be crewed by less skilled workers.

    Aircraft
    Manned aircraft has been part of warfare for over one hundred years. They provide vital intelligence and a counter to armor and warships that a less advanced may not possess. Some can be used for transport, but one thing to consider is that all aircraft need an airfield. They cannot be used otherwise. Good news is that there are many airfields across North America, but some may no longer be in useable condition.

    Spoiler :

    Civilian Plane: A Civilian Plane is a smaller aircraft like a crop-duster or recreational aircraft. They can be outfitted with a light infantry weapon to be used in primitive air combat or in light support roles. They have little to no defense against faster aircraft.

    Facilities

    The following are key structures which are used to expand the capabilities of your faction, in order to secure your safety and prosperity. Some facilities can be obtained without combat by seizing city centers and locations, others can be built with appropriate resource expenditure. Facilities can also be targeted directly by air or cruise missile strikes. Most of these facilities exist in the world, and areas where they actually exist in real life are more likely to have these facilities found intact. Just because it’s on Google maps though, doesn’t mean that it’ll be where you expect it to be, as things in the Collapse may have caused the site’s destruction.

    Faction Name:
    The People's Republic of Cincinnati
    Leader Name: General Secretary Dr. Emily Charles Cassandra Morgan
    Leader Background:: Engineer
    Starting Location: Cincinnati
    Background: The People's Republic of Cincinnati is the result of the Worker's Congress of Cincinnati. The Congress cemented the political union of its constituents and created the Cincinnatian Constitution, which is headlettered with a quote from Livy spoken often of the eponymous Cincinnatus of Roman history: "It is worth while for those who disdain all human things for money, and who suppose that there is no room either for great honor or virtue, except where wealth is found, to listen to his story." No doubt this kind of Classical indulgence was ably afforded by the city's pretentiously large classics community. But the true heart of the movement lay in the engineers and industrial workers of the valley. The politicians had no answers, and there was no more capital influx. The city was either going to shut down, paralyzed, or come together. Dozens of late-night meetings over local brew, often shared pro bono with the breweryworkers themselves, and an alliance had formed among the workers. They didn't need the banks, the politicians, or "capital influx" and whatever other nonsense the managers were yapping about. They could take matters into their own hands! Stoked into action, mesmerized by the incendiary language of GE engineer Dr. Emily Morgan and her cadre of likeminded colleagues, they were engineers one evening and politicians the next, representatives of the All-Cincinnati Labor Union, presenting demands. When they were refused, they rallied and marched on the factories. In the ensuing months, the other elements of the city slowly folded to diplomatic missions from the valley, exhorting them to join their enterprise and seize the property of the banks to redistribute to the people. The city, much-liberal in its sentiments, and sensing the blowing wind as these upstart workers had now successfully managed to rekindle the fires of industry in the valley, capitulated and sent representatives to the Congress. In due course the People's Republic was announced. All that resisted were the outskirts, suspicious always of the urban center and nestled in valleys and forests of their own. They and the People's Republic eye each other suspiciously: they both know only one can survive, and the city grows stronger every day.

    Starting Location: Quebec City
    Background: When Canada fell apart, Quebec couldn't avoid the chaos either. However with the central goverment and military collapsing, the hour of the Quebeci nationalists came. Using the unity of their folowers and their influence, they gained control and support by Quebec cities remaining goverment. While still many died and much was lost, the Republic was established and survived those first horrible months. Backed by the Police of Quebec City and the new "Quebec National Army" (A small force of volunteers, lead by surviving soldiers from the Canadian Army and former reservists, equipped with what weapons of the Canadian Armed Forces they could get) the Republic has secured Quebec City and now reaches out to reclaim all of Quebec under its flag.

    Faction Name: City of Nashville (United States of America)
    Leader Name: Keisha
    Leader Background: Teamster
    Location: Nashville
    Background:

    With the ongoing collapse of the United States of America, Keisha decided to simply go off her assigned route as a long-haul trucker carrying a lot of something from somewhere to someplace else and just drive down the highway to Nashville to watch a choir performance. Unfortunately, it turned out that the performance had been canceled due to the whole ongoing collapse of modern society problem, but people sure did appreciate her giving out her misdelivered cargo of medicine and baby supplies to the streets (more accurately she literally just dumped it where she figured right people would find them)

    Her actions did not go unnoticed, and soon, she found herself being invited to a small circle of either ambitious or good-natured (or both) truckers and managers seeking to keep the city supplied in the collapsing economy. Keisha agreed to become the organization's spokesperson and nominal leader as they mobilized to make contact with local producers and ensure that critical supplies were stockpiled in Nashville's massive transportation warehouses and truck depots.

    By the time that she realized that she managed to subvert practically every other elites and legitimate authority in the city through her and her organization's control over vital supplies, it was quite too late to back out now.

    Leader Name: Central Caucus (Council of union representatives which includes 98 deputies, a Chairman (floating position), and a Caucus Speaker (currently held by ex-political writer Noam Chomsky)). Other notable members include an ex-musician Tom Morello (currently the Chairman of the Communication of the IWW), an ex-anthropologist David Graeber (currently the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs), and ex-MMA fighter Jeff Monson (currently the Chairman of the People's Defense)
    Leader Background:: Agitator
    Starting Location: Chicago (more specifically, Lincoln Square/Ravenswood area; more specifically, 2036 West Montrose, Chicago)
    Background: Being a poor worker or a travelling work migrant (or, as they're popularly known, a "hobo") may be a stamp of life of misery in a late-stage capitalism. That is, unless all laborers of the world unionize and form the One Big Union. The legendary Wobblies have been at it since 1905, agitating for grassroots organization of labor in America and the British Commonwealth. In the peak of the post-industrial capitalism, the prominence of IWW in the field of labor protection seemed to wane, but the Fall changed everything. When the city of Chicago, alongside with the rest of the departed United States of America became consumed by the post-war chaos, economic crash, and dissolution of the public order, these were the armed crews of the Wobblies that helped to keep North Side Chicago relatively safe and the city's giant infrastructure running. Of course, some moneybags had to make certain concessions to the people, and not everyone in CPD (except the union members, of course) approved of the Wobblies' cause, but at this point the IWW seems to be dead-set on its end goal of finally forming the One Big Union across North America.

    P.S. Not counting the left paternalist East Germany I played in the Blackened Skies, this is my first "leftie" faction. I couldn't pass by that chance. Their headquarters are 8 minutes of walking away from where I live.

    Background: The collapse in the US echoed throughout the continent, and the Canadian central authority in Ottawa fell relatively quickly after the american one, unable to contend with the waves of refugees. As communication with the Central offices failed, the RCMP offices in Trois Riviere quickly rallied the community leaders to figure out how to survive the coming end days. Forging a council, with RCMP commander Jerome Duboisson as it’s chairman, the Democratic Alliance has reached out to nearby municipalities, hoping to forge something new.

    Leader Name: President Dr. Ben Carson
    Leader Background:: Politician
    Starting Location: Washington D.C.
    Background: It's difficult to understand what happened in Washington D.C. during the collapse. The line of succession was unclear and uncertain: the whereabouts of most cabinet members were unknown. The Speaker of the House was briefly proclaimed president, appointed an administration, discovered there was no Senate to confirm that administration, and was assassinated by a conspiracy theorist who believed she ran a child slavery ring out of a Mexican restaurant. A group of right-wing congressmen barricaded themselves in the Capitol, passed radical legislation dissolving the Federal Reserve, and killed themselves in a suicide pact. The acting Attorney General seized power briefly but failed to secure support of key agencies, as he had never been properly confirmed by the Senate. A senator from Texas was torn apart by an angry mob. In the end it was a cabal of bureaucrats, intelligence officials, and other members of the Deep State that established control of the capital. General Services Administration employees, the true power behind the federal government for decades, took quiet control of key centers of the administration overnight using their knowledge of maintenance corridors and tunnels. Dr. Ben Carson, 12th in line for the presidency and considered eminently manipulable, was maneuvered into position as President. He is more than a virtual non-entity however: God has chosen him for a special mission.

    His Healing Hands are the hands that will heal America.

    Starting Location: Houston, Texas. Based out of the Johnson Space Center.
    Background: It turns out that the Posadists had infiltrated NASA in order to be better prepared for the nuclear war that will end capitalism and so they can better contact the extraterrestrial comrades. After all that, it turns out that Posadas was right and nuclear war did end capitalism. Shortly after the war ended, the Posadists in NASA led by Gene Frasnelli led a coup and took over the space station. They were then somehow able to take control over the city, perhaps because their mad ramblings about nuclear war ending capitalism seemed plausible after a nuclear war happened.

    Now Chairman Gene Frasnelli leads the Fifth International to assist the working classes (of human, alien and dolphin varieties) end the last vestiges of capitalism and allow humanity to achieve socialism and join our comrades among the stars!

Led by actress Fan Bingbing due to her familiarity of the United States, she took the title 'Empress Wu' due to her prior role as the Empress. Now, the Jiāzhōu Dynasty is prepared to make a new empire, on the backs of their conquered American subjects.

With the only trained military force in 3000 miles nobody is likely to dispute his claim. His declared priorities are to secure the safety and self-sufficiency of Hawaii and re-unite whatever remains of the Pacific Fleet.

    Once upon a time, crazy people destroyed the world. But this is not the story that matters.
    Once upon a time there was an imam who heard the ominous rumblings of evil to come in the news, and worked on turning the masjid into a shelter, for it is the house of Allah and it should provide succor to those Allah loves. One day, a community of Christians came to seek shelter there. The imam's followers complained bitterly, "we do not have enough food and medicine for ourselves. Leave them out there. We did not create this mess, it is not our responsibility to help them."
    "By Allah, when did your faith grow so weak! These people are our brothers and sisters in humanity, of course we will help them. Allah will provide for us all"

    Background: Greg Buckner owned a large ranch south of Bend, OR. The same spread owned by his father, and his father's father. Greg was raised to think for himself, to be independent. This mindset helped him look past the headlines and visualize where the world was heading, and he knew it was heading to chaos. Over the past twenty years he has planned and prepped, hoarding food, weapons, and ammo on his self sustainable ranch, turning his house into a near impenetrable fortress made of old shipping containers, concrete fortifications, and pre-planned booby traps. His friends thought him crazy, but when the bombs started dropping and missiles started flying, he was ready. Now, he finds himself the leader of a band of like-minded individualists and survivalists. Calling themselves the Free State of Jefferson, in honor of the state that never was, they now defend their land and way of life from the screaming hordes of Willamette Valley socialists. Those hordes which will arrive, any day now. Just wait and see.

It was a few weeks after the chaos and the other members of the Sheriff's office stopped showing up to work when he decided something had to be done. Starting within his home city of Sandy, OR, Johnathan moved to stage at the local fire station. A well centralized and defensible building that could store plenty of food, medicine and other supplies as needed. Shortly after, he was able to recruit many of the citizens of Sandy and a few others from the nearby cities such as; Boring, Damascus, Clackamas and Estacada. Word of his efforts spread rapidly and he soon found his influence all the way into Portland. Pleased with his early success and efforts in reestablishing order in this new world, Johnathan has now turned his attention to protecting those that have decided to follow him with expansion toward the coast. With the Mt. Hood National Forest as their backyard for hunting and the Clackamas and Columbia rivers acting as means of travel and fishing, the idea of getting to the coast for means of finding trade and more means of food and resources is very enticing.
