After talking with people and hearing feedback, I decided to move onto something slightly different than doing the Mojave wasteland. Instead I am doing a game set in Texas. Texas has not been covered in official games, leaving it open for us to create. The exact specifics will be determined by you, but let me layout the world in broadstrokes.
So what do I need from you guys? Prospective players should send me a PM with the ideas for two different factions. These factions can be anything from one of the cities in the League, to a Gang operating in the League, to a vault. I kept where exactly this was in Texas vague so players can have freedom to design things. Alongside ideas for things from Texas, you can also draw upon surrounding states and countries for ideas. Factions inspired by Mexico, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico are certainly interesting.The year is 2277, two hundred years after the start of the Great War. The Lone Star state's environment has continued to recover from the desperation of the war. As the oil fields of Texas had dried out during the 21st century, Texas was no longer a strategic area and thus did not suffer the destruction that more important cities like San Francisco and Washington DC did.
As Texans emerged from their vaults over time, they began to reestablish settlements either within or around old world cities. Through negotiations and treaties, these cities began to band together, eventually forming the Texan Confederacy. However even though these cities are formally in a league, they are not unified in outlook, as Texans have a fiercely independent streak. Even within these cities, there remains divided factions, each seeking survival or dominance in the harsh environment.
The emergence of the Confederacy was prompted by waves of raiders and tribes that have been coming in from the North and West. Something is changing in the world, and the cities decided to band together to avoid destruction at the hands of the raiders. Whispers also persist about strange things happening to the South, across the Rio Grande and to the East in the Former state of Louisiana. Finally a new set of Vaults has just emerged. What does all of this mean for the state of Texas?
You can use this thread to discuss ideas with other players. The more nuanced and interactive, the better.
