rcaf_777, I appreciate how you incorporated details from my article into your NPC profiles. As a side note, as a kid I had the G.I. Joe figure (Recondo was his name, IIRC) from which the photoshopped pic on the left was derived.

Default Camp Simba, Manda Bay

Also remember that as Somalia was falling apart, Kenya opened the "base" at Manda Bay (known today by US servicemen as "THE ZOO" due to the wildlife that often cross the wire) in 1992. It wasn't called Camp Simba, but it was in existence. The US actually had "boots on the ground" there in 1993 during RESTORE HOPE. When Kenya agreed to help with Al Shabob; An informal presence by the US was established at what is now Camp Simba. It is operating under the guise of a humanitarian mission, and (supposedly) consists of engineers and PSYOPS/ADMIN specialists. These "specialists" have some very interesting skill sets though.

Went back thru this thread and hope now that the East Africa Sourcebook is now officially published and officially part of the canon that others who put out fan canon work can work to get their material published as well. It definitely can be done - I spent nearly two years before I said the heck with it and contacted Marc Miller last year and wished I had done so a lot earlier.

I would love to see some of Chico's, Raellus's, Mark's, James's, etc. work that they have put here join mine as new published canon works for Twilight 2000.

And I definitely hope Frank Frey, who said on his podcast last year how much he wished something official had been published on Kenya, reads and approves of that finally happening.
