Default LA situation -

As of game time July 1st. 2020

A is divided roughly into 5-6 general zones.
NORTH : a confederation of heirs aligned in the common cause that the man in the library tower is an impostor and should be fought -the question of succession is not settled among them either .A typical two act piece if ever there was one
West : The would be usurper Zorg George Michael Pain ( named by both his parents independently) and his loyal EndoGuard ,mostly former Pretorians and loyal auxilliaries.With his legitimacy as the oldest son and the emergency powers he has been able to utilize the 14 year old has taken control over a sizeable chunk of land and resources .His issues with daddy runs deep.This is one serious teenage trouble.

east :unconsolidated ganglands -a multitude of small and big gangs fighting eachother as much as everyone else

south : marauders and petty warlords robbing what they can and trying to copy Gen Pain and jis friends way to the top by building cantonments.Unconsolidated - largely.

Interspersed and strewn about the map are small groups of survivors and communes that try to make it .They live of whatever they can , primitive farming,all sorts of animals are eaten-and they do sometimes rob someone that wont be noticed when he doesnt return.

General Pains disaster contingency plans allowed for the situation LA is in now.Storages with supplies and caches of resources are sprinkled about the city to facilitate the defense in case of siege and/or occupation by MilGov or anyone else.The various factions are busy helping themselves to the contents.

Default BAKERSFIELD

Nicknamded bunkersfield - the city is a smoking nuke crater sitting on top of a myriad of tunnels and bunkers. Its environs are heavily mined and dangerous to traverse without sanction from Col. Sanchez.

Civil war rages in the tunnels between the men of Col. Sanchez and a variety of rebels trying to oust him.

The situation is yet to be determined.

Default City of Orland

The city is independent, organized and nominally allied with Eureka against the NDP.

The city has a governing council and a battle hardened militia with some heavy weapons.

The environs are prone to NDP patrols and a continuing low-level war steadily takes it toll on the city.

Default AVENAL

city of Avenal is only a collection of fortified compounds nominally allied against marauders. They cooperate but do not have a common leader. The compounds all respect NDP authority - anything less than obedience will mean attacks by the NDP. There is little trade surplus but occasionally a good harvest means oats, corn and alcohol can be had.

Default VISALIA

Visalia is an independent city of more than 3000 inhabitants all counted.
The city does a brisk trade in services and goods and have trade surplus in farm produce and stock. Visalia is well known for its medical services and cottage industries.

Its militia was well armed and well supplied up until recently when renewed fighting with the evicted NDP resumed.It is believed that personal animosity from NDP chairman Haussmanntowards visitors in the town were the casus belli. Also a third party has begun encroaching the valuable lands around the city from the mountains, claiming to serve the "King of the mountains".

The cites status is precarious and it is expected to either submit to its adversaries as it undergoes a loose siege from the NDP in the west and "King" in the east.

Default Atacadero - shandon area

The NDP controls the area and is rumored to have extensive underground bunkers and facilities in keeping with their motto : bread - bullets - bunkers for all.

The area is closed and al approaches are heavily mined and guarded. Anyone caught without authorization is apprehended for "processing" by the numerous NDP combat patrols.

A few successful escapes have occurred from the area, some bringing news of terrible oppression and total control of the populace in the maze of bunkers and cellars.

The NDP has gradually ben beaten back and evicted from most of their former strongholds and they assert control over the areas within their reach only nominally due to the ever increasing lack of resources. But the Atascadero - Shandon area is the heartland where the corn fields still burgeon with harvest, the herds graze peacefully tended by happy farmers and the NDP troops parade smartly in great numbers every day.

Nobody knows how much Haussmann has stockpiled in the main bunker nicknamed "the Hive". Scouts regularly report of aviation assets being used from the area, helicopters as well as CAS aircraft.

Default REDDING

The city of Redding, CA.

The town is divided between the Norfs and the Soufs each group keeping to their side of the river and each group maintaining a checkpoint at Sundial bridge.

The Norfs: They are a hardy lot trying to get by and the taxing of travelers is a welcome supplement. The Norfs have some farming, lumber and livestock but there dis little trade surplus. The conflict with the Soufs run deep due to the Soufs unjustly taking valuable trade form the southern routes. So potshots are occasionally discharged from the North bank at Soufs.

The Soufs: They are hardworking and get by on little.The taxing of travelers is valuable to them in addition to their limited hunting, farming and livestock. There is seldom a trade surplus here but traders to come and services and basic goods can be had. The Norfs are jealous in the Soufs opinion and sometimes a random mortar round is necessary to keep them from getting to rowdy.

Default WHISKEYTOWN

The bridge at Whiskeytown is a natural point for traders to meet. Not only due to the checkpoint stopping all and taxing them, but several small stalls and makeshift houses sell several of the services you would think to find in a town name Whiskeytown. Raw materials and more or less willing coworkers are transported up from the south.

The settlement has no choice but to be proud of its strong army - a squad of various deserters and the Pain tek T34/85 -2000 they rode in on.

Default FRESNO

Fresno was hit by a dirty nuclear device fired by PainGov air force in 2016 to end the Holnist occupation and subsequently Holnist chemical weapons stockpiles polluted the city.

The area is considered dangerous to travel without NBC protection and few venture in to the city.

Rumours have it that surviving Holnists and their death camp captives still live in the city as primitives, fighting brutal battles over hunting grounds and uncontaminated water.

Default Ft.bragg - highway 1 -san rafael - napa

The sea between Ft. Bragg and Napa has seen heavy fighting over the last year. NDP troops have clashed with a ragged alliance of local militias and forces from Orland, Eureka, Visalia and LA.

The battles are mostly fought over the control of the roads with the objective to isolate NDP forces to the Atascadero area. There are few if any noncombatants in the area as both sides have scant consideration for civilians in the bitter struggle. Spies are suspected to be everywhere and units roaming the area shot first and ask later in most cases.

The fighting seems to have died down somewhat recently and some sort of stalemate seem sot have set in, but the characteristic rolling battles may ensue at any time.

Bothe the NDP and the various militias have several battalion sized units in the area.

Default San Diego - Salton Sea - Palm Springs

The area is controlled by the Mexico Norte Province, a confederalist Mexican faction with considerable resources and several northern Mexican states under its control - to some extent.

PainGov attacked SD using nuclear weapons during the 2.nd American civil war and thereby destroying much of the amassed forces there. The setback was critical for the Norte faction, and recovery is still underway. The MexNorte have managed to penetrate as far as Palm Springs where outposts warily scout for patrols from the LA area where the various feared Painist factions and their enemies the gangs are fighting a vicious civil war over turf and resources.

Hemmed in by the mountains to the east the MexNorte seemingly is unwilling to commit to the urbanwafare nightmare of 2020 LA.
