Well all of that is in the works right now. Titorite is working on some of the background stuff right now, so hopefully we will see some of that
The vision that I had for this story was based in the El Paso, Alamogordo areas. Like I said, after the initial story begins to unfold, the storyline
can take the characters anywhere in Texas/New Mexico. I would like to keep it mostly in this general area, but that is not to say that there cannot be
sidebars/missions that take others in the story to other parts of Texas....say to hook up with other members of the resistance? We have toyed around
with some of the following ideas:
- detention camps, quarantine camps, re-education camps in the desert. Possibly reconnaissance and breaking people out of them, maybe destroying
- We want to have a part of the story with them trying to make it in the remains of the City of El Paso....or maybe Alamogordo or Las Cruces.....the
daily battle for food, water, against radiation/fallout, security troops, private vigilante armies (being so close to the Mexican border?)
- We can make whatever gangs, groups, militia's, secret government troops, etc. that we want....the sky's the limit.
- I want to make sure that we use some post apocalyptic weaponry, technology. IE, things made out of what is left.
- Secede....that may not be a bad idea.....could be a catalyst for a nuclear attack, rather than an accidental detonation that sparked an automated
strike. And I want to make sure everyone understands.....it will not be a direct hit on El Paso, I want the city to be semi-inhabitable....kind of
like in I am Legend with Will Smith
I like the idea of the disgruntled soldier coming back for the family. maybe he could be used to train a militia....he could hook up with the lead
character. Would he be AWOL....or home on leave? I believe that Titorite is writing the background starting at Christmas time with the idea of
soldiers at home on leave. so, that may fit in with the character you are wanting to do.
What do you think? Post Apocalyptic desert, with nearby military bases?
