Default The Free State

This is an overview of the Free State as per TM 1-1, 3rd Edition.

VERMONT is a state in the New England region of the Northeastern United States. It borders the U.S. states of Massachusetts to the south, New Hampshire to the east, New York to the west, and the Canadian province of Quebec to the north. Vermont is the second smallest by population and the sixth smallest by area of the 50 U.S. states. The state capital is Montpelier, the least populous state capital in the United States. The most populous city, Burlington, is the least populous city to be the most populous city in a state.

Capital: Montpelier
Largest city: Burlington
Largest metro: Greater Burlington

Area
Total: 9,616 sq mi (24,923 km2)
Width: 80 miles (130 km)
Length: 160 miles (260 km)
% water: 4.1
Latitude: 42° 44′ N to 45° 1′ N
Longitude: 71° 28′ W to 73° 26′ W

Population Total: 608,827

Elevation
Highest point: Mount Mansfield 4,395 ft (1340 m)
Mean: 1,000 ft (300 m)
Lowest point: Lake Champlain 95 to 100 ft (29 to 30 m)
Time zone Eastern: UTC −5/−4


A list of exploitable or exploited mineral commodities recorded from this region, include: Aggregates; Arsenic; Asbestos; Copper; Granite; Limestone; Marble; Slate and Talc.

Primary Industries:
Dairy Farming; Forest Products; Maple Syrup Production: Artisan Foods; Wineries; Integrated Circuit Production; Marble and Granite Quarrying.

One International Airport, one Regional Airport

As you can see Vermont is a small state with a small population. Considering the distance to the borders of the canon Free State, there is not a lot to attract the KFS, but with a nuclear power plant and a large integrated circuit factory, there are possibilities for a colony to be set up.

Given the KFS imperialistic plans, they will need a great deal of ammunition. Vermont, unlike Kentucky, does have large copper reserves. Combine this with the zinc mines in Tennessee and you have all the brass you need.

Still working on this, but going by the raw data, I'm going to say that for the Free State to be as powerful as the modules hint at, they have to a much larger base than one of two states. Call them trading partners or colonies or even member states, the Free State "web" is much, much larger.

Maybe the best solution is not to make the Free State larger but to weaken its power. Subtract the Thunderbolt airplanes, the M1 tanks and the V300s and make the army a garrison force that suppress slave revolts and the occasional raid. Drop the tech level from equal to MP to about 1950's tech.

This is certainly one solution, but if you go by canon (did I just say that?) The Free State was designed to be much larger, with access to resources and technologies beyond that of any other survivor group.

The two modules printed, describe just such a minimalized Free State. Clearly there is a disconnect.

The solution lies in the PD and the campaign he/she is running. If you prefer a smaller, weaker Free State then by all means have at it! I've played or ran many campaigns against just such a setup. But I am curious, if a larger Free State was planned, then what form, resources, numbers and even tech would it have?

I believe that in the past, we have overlooked the potential of a larger, aggressive and far more deadly Free State. Such a KFS would present more of a challenge to a player team if handled properly by a PD. Hence this thread, if no one objects, I'd like to pursue this question or at least post information that may prove useful to other PDs.I

Looking forward to the responses!

Default New York

NEW YORK
Capital: Albany
Largest city: New York City
Largest metro: Greater New York

New York is a state in the Northeastern United States. New York was one of the original Thirteen Colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.85 million residents in 2017, it is the fourth most populous state. To distinguish the state from the city with the same name, it is sometimes called New York State. New York is the 27th largest U.S. states in land area.

The state's most populous city, New York City, makes up over 40% of the state's population. Two-thirds of the state's population lives in the New York metropolitan area, and nearly 40% lives on Long Island. With an estimated population of 8.55 million in 2015, New York City is the most populous city in the United States and the premier gateway for legal immigration to the United States. The New York metropolitan area is one of the most populous in the world. New York City is a global city, home to the United Nations Headquarters and has been described as the cultural, financial and media capital of the world, as well as the world's most economically powerful city. The next four most populous cities in the state are Buffalo, Rochester, Yonkers, and Syracuse, while the state capital is Albany.

Area Ranked 27th
Total: 54,555[3] sq mi (141,300 km2)
Width: 285 miles (455 km)
Length: 330 miles (530 km)
% water: 13.5
Latitude: 40° 30′ N to 45° 1′ N
Longitude: 71° 51′ W to 79° 46′ W

Population: 18,976,457

Elevation
Highest point Mount Marcy, 5,344 ft (1,629 m)
Mean: 1,000 ft (300 m)
Lowest point: Atlantic Ocean Sea level

Time zone Eastern: UTC -5/-4

Anchored by Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world. Lower Manhattan is the third-largest central business district in the United States and is home to the New York Stock Exchange, on Wall Street, and the NASDAQ, at 165 Broadway, representing the world's largest and second largest stock exchanges, respectively, as measured both by overall average daily trading volume and by total market capitalization of their listed companies in 2013.

Silicon Alley, centered in New York City, has evolved into a metonym for the sphere encompassing the New York City metropolitan region's high technology and entrepreneurship ecosystem. High tech industries including digital media, biotechnology, software development, game design, and other fields in information technology are growing, bolstered by New York City's position at the terminus of several transatlantic fiber optic trunk lines, its intellectual capital, as well as its growing outdoor wireless connectivity.

Albany, Saratoga County, Rensselaer County, and the Hudson Valley, collectively recognized as eastern New York's Tech Valley, have experienced significant growth in the computer hardware side of the high-technology industry, with great strides in the nanotechnology sector, digital electronics design, and water- and electricity-dependent integrated microchip circuit manufacturing, involving companies including IBM and its Thomas J. Watson Research Center, and the three foreign-owned firms, GlobalFoundries, Samsung, and Taiwan Semiconductor, among others. The area's high technology ecosystem is supported by technologically focused academic institutions including Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the SUNY Polytechnic Institute.

A list of exploitable or exploited mineral commodities recorded from this region, include: Abrasives; Aggregates; Clay; Cobalt; Copper; Feldspar; Fluorite; Gold; Granite; Gypsum & Anhydrite; Iron, Lead; Marble; Mica; Salt; Talc; Trap Rock and Uranium.

New York has four nuclear power stations: Ginna (610MW); Indian Point (2,045MW); James A. FitzPatrick (838MW) and Nine Mile Point (Unit 1 [624MW], Unit 2 [1,300MW]).

There are numerous coal (8 total output of 2,836MW) and gas-fired power plants (17 total output of 12,766MW). There are eight Petroleum power plants (total output of 8,260MW), as well as ten Wind Farms (total output of 1,010MW) and a single Biomass power station (output of 50MW).

New York will most likely be of importance to the Free State, mainly due to its mineral resources, powerplants and extensive collection of colleges. As far as the state’s high-tech capability, this is concentrated in New York City and Albany, with nuclear weapons targeted on both cities…

Pennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. The Appalachian Mountains run through its middle. The Commonwealth is bordered by Delaware to the southeast, Maryland to the south, West Virginia to the southwest, Ohio to the west, Lake Erie and the Canadian province of Ontario to the northwest, New York to the north, and New Jersey to the east.

Pennsylvania is the 33rd-largest state by area, and the 6th-most populous state according to the last official U.S. Census count in 2010. It is the 9th-most densely populated of the 50 states. Pennsylvania's two most populous cities are Philadelphia (1,567,872), and Pittsburgh (303,625). The state capital and its 10th largest city is Harrisburg. Pennsylvania has 140 miles (225 km) of waterfront along Lake Erie and the Delaware Estuary.

Area
Total: 46,055 sq mi (119,283 km2)
Width: 283 miles (455 km)
Length: 170 miles (273 km)
% water: 2.7
Latitude: 39° 43′ to 42° 16′ N
Longitude: 74° 41′ to 80° 31′ W

Elevation
Highest point: Mount Davis, 3,213 ft (979 m)
Mean: 1,100 ft (340 m)
Lowest point: Delaware River at Delaware border Sea level
Time zone: Eastern: UTC -5/-4

Population: 12,281,054

Philadelphia in the southeast corner, Pittsburgh in the southwest corner, Erie in the northwest corner, Scranton-Wilkes-Barre in the northeast corner, and Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton in the east central region are urban manufacturing centers. Much of the Commonwealth is rural; this dichotomy affects state politics as well as the state economy.[106] Philadelphia is home to six Fortune 500 companies, with more located in suburbs like King of Prussia; it is a leader in the financial and insurance industry.

Pittsburgh is home to eight Fortune 500 companies, including U.S. Steel, PPG Industries, and H.J. Heinz. In all, Pennsylvania is home to fifty Fortune 500 companies. Erie is also home to GE Transportation Systems, which is the largest producer of train locomotives in the United States.

Agriculture is a major industry in the U.S. commonwealth of Pennsylvania. As of the most recent United States Census of Agriculture conducted in 2012, there were 59,309 farms in Pennsylvania, covering an area of 7,704,444 acres (3,117,878 hectares) with an average size of 130 acres (53 hectares) per farm. Pennsylvania ranks first in the United States in Agaricus mushroom production (63.8% of U.S. sales volume during 2015–16), fourth in apple production, fourth in Christmas tree production, fifth in dairy sales, fifth in grape production, and seventh in winemaking.

Historically, different geographic locations in Pennsylvania were centers for different forms of agricultural production, with fruit production occurring in the Adams County region, fruit and vegetables in the Lake Erie region, and potatoes in the Lehigh County region. Modern agricultural production in Pennsylvania includes corn, wheat, oats, barley, sorghum, soybeans, tobacco, sunflowers, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.

Dairy farming is the largest agricultural industry in Pennsylvania. Farming is prominent in the rural areas of the commonwealth, the southeast in particular (including Berks County, Lancaster County, and York County). Nationally, Pennsylvania ranks fourth in both milk production and ice cream production. Edible mushrooms, fruits, vegetables, tobacco, maple sugar, and Christmas trees are all produced in Pennsylvania. Livestock raising, which comprises approximately 68% of commonwealth farm income, continues to be a major part of the Pennsylvania agriculture industry as well. Food production and packaging (including the H. J. Heinz Company) are also parts of the industry.

A list of exploitable or exploited mineral commodities recorded from this region, include: Abrasives; Aggregates; Coal; Copper; Iron; Lead; Limestone; Marble; Nickel; Silver and Slate

Power generation in Pennsylvania is dependent on a network of seven coal power stations (total output of 11,932MW), eighteen hydroelectric power stations (total output of 3,905.3MW), five nuclear power stations (total output of 9,707MW) and eight wind farms (total output of 576.8MW).

Overall, Pennsylvania offers a lot of things that the traditional Free State lacks, prime agricultural areas, nuclear and hydroelectric power plants to be scavenged or repaired, and minerals. I would except that the Free State would make a major effort to secure the Pennsylvania’s resources,.

West Virginia is a state located in the Appalachian region in the Southern United States and is also considered to be a part of the Middle Atlantic States. It is bordered by Pennsylvania to the north, Maryland to the east and northeast, Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, and Ohio to the northwest. West Virginia is the 41st largest state by area, and is ranked 38th in population. The capital and largest city is Charleston.

Capital(and largest city): Charleston
Largest metro: Greater Huntington

Area
Total: 24,230 sq mi (62,755 km2)
Width: 130 miles (210 km)
Length: 240 miles (385 km)
% water: 0.6
Latitude: 37° 12′ N to 40° 39′ N
Longitude: 77° 43′ W to 82° 39′ W

Elevation
Highest point: Spruce Knob, 4863 ft (1482 m)
Mean: 1,513 ft (461 m)
Lowest point: Potomac River at Virginia border, 240 ft (73 m)
Time zone: Eastern: UTC -5/-4

Population: 1,808,344

West Virginia is a global hub for chemicals, a national hub for biotech industries and a leader in energy, while having a diverse economy in aerospace, automotive, healthcare and education, metals and steels, media and telecommunications, manufacturing, hospitality, biometrics, forestry, and tourism.

The state is a global chemical hub, cited by the Council of American States in Europe as one of North America's premier destinations, with the presence of DuPont, Germany-based Bayer and Stockmeier Kunststoffe GmbH; a subsidiary of Japan-based Kureha, Ashland Specialty Chemical, Flexsys, and Brazil-based Braskem S.A.

The state has one of the nation's highest concentrations of biotech industries aided by the presence of corporations such as Germany-based BASF and Bayer, DuPont, PPG, Dow, Mylan Inc., founded in White Sulphur Springs, and Texas-based Alcon.

West Virginia also has sizeable advanced technology industries. Private establishments include Fairmont-based Prologic, Inc., Security Assistance Corporation, Ridgeley-based Alliant Techsystems, Inc., Berkeley Springs-based STS International, and the Fairmont-based West Virginia High Technology Consortium Foundation (HTC).

The state is home to federal institutions such as the portions of the National Energy Technology Laboratory and Forestry Science Laboratory in Morgantown, the Leetown Science Center and National Center for Cool and Cold Water Aquaculture in Leetown, National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, the Forest Service Timber and Watershed Laboratory in Parsons, the Appalachian Farming Systems Research Center in Beckley, West Virginia District Office of Water Resources in Charleston, and Department of Veterans Affairs R&D units in Clarksburg and Huntington.

West Virginia University is home to research institutions such as the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute, Robert C. Byrd Cancer Research Laboratory, Center for Identification Technology Research, and the National Research Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions.
The Mid-Atlantic Technology, Research and Innovation Center, or MATRIC, is headquartered in South Charleston.

Major aerospace employers in the state include Pratt and Whitney located in Bridgeport, Lockheed Martin in Clarksburg, Goodrich Corporation in Union, Canada-based Bombardier Aerospace in Bridgeport, Alliant Techsystems, FCX Systems in Morgantown, and FMW Composite Systems and Aurora Flight Sciences of West Virginia in Bridgeport.

Farming is practiced throughout West Virginia, but in a form different from large extensive cash-crop agriculture elsewhere in the USA. The modal average farm size was a smallish 140 to 179 acres (567,000 to 724,000 m²), most statistics in this section are taken from the 2002 US Census of Agriculture for West Virginia, which sold less than $2,500 of crops annually. Family and single-owner operation worked 92.7% of the farms, and an astounding 96.9% were totally or partly owned by the operator. On the other hand, only 50.5% of the state's farmers considered farming to be their primary occupation, with a significant number of hours worked elsewhere each year. The rural poverty rate in West Virginia is 20.4%, five points higher than the urban poverty rate.

This description of farming portrays an independent and self-sufficient base of small land owners, but also a significant amount of rural poverty.
As can be expected in a rugged terrain, raising animals was far more important than growing vegetative crops. Income from animals exceeded income from plants by about 7 to 1, with much of the non-animal income derived from sales of fodder. The chief animals raised were cattle and chickens.

In the ridge and valley area along the eastern border near Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, subsidiary valleys are wide and there are some belts of rich soil which are extensively farmed. In 2002, all of the top five counties by agricultural dollar value were located near the eastern Virginia border.
In traditional frontier agriculture there was much gathering of wild "greens" and other vegetation to supplement the diet. One area where this practice is still significant is the gathering of wild North American ginseng, often for the Asian market. Wild gathered ginseng contributed about $2 million in 2000 to the West Virginia economy, a figure larger than many conventional cultivated vegetable and fruit crops. Other wild greens, such as sour dock, lambs quarters, and wild leek (or "ramps") are also still gathered by many for table use, although today more on the basis of avocation or keeping up traditions than out of necessity.

West Virginia is considered a national energy hub, leading the nation in net interstate electricity exports and underground coal mine production, while experiencing a growing natural gas industry as a result of the Great Shale Gas Rush. Overall, it produces 15% of the nation's fossil fuel energy. The state's underground natural gas storage represents 6% of the nation's total, and overall it has 5.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas reserves.

West Virginia was one of the first states to engage in drilling for oil. Small to medium oil and natural gas fields still exist and are scattered mostly in the Allegheny Plateau and the Cumberland Plateau in an arc throughout the western part of state. The state produces around 180,000 barrels of oil per month, with 23 million barrels of reserves.

West Virginia is the largest coal producer east of the Mississippi River, and accounts for 1/10 of the nation's production. It leads the nation in coal production from underground mines, and has the nation's second largest reserves behind Wyoming.

West Virginia has an annual 13 million barrel coal-to-liquid fuel production capacity. Weirton Energy will begin construction of a new $1 billion coal-to-liquid fuel facility in January.

It has an extensive network of railroads, and much of the coal is transported by rail. The railways were once one of the largest customers for coal to drive the steam locomotives, but these have been replaced by diesel locomotives. Coal is rarely used now for home heating. Most coal today is used by power plants to produce electricity, both in West Virginia, and in other eastern states.

A list of exploitable or exploited mineral commodities recorded from this region, include: Aggregates; Clay; Coal; Dimension Stone; Fire Clay; Iron; Limestone; Manganese; Silica.

With its extensive coal and gas reserves, West Virginia should be the key to the Free State’s power needs. Adding in the large high-tech and research facilities in the state, this could be the hidden jewel in the Free State.

New Yorker here, there's a lot of things any faction might want in the Upstate region. Not the least of which is a Lockheed Martin Research facility in Syracuse, the Remington Arms Factory in Ilion and several truly massive salt mines. Along with these we also have Griffis Air Force base(now defunct) as well as Fort Drum, and I know of at least one national guard armory in Utica.

Agriculture wise The Finger Lakes has some od the best Vineyards in the East Coast. And, the Western portion of the state was known for its fine wheat fields. While further North the Adirondacks can provide tons of lumber.

Trying to give a broad overview of what is available in each state. The big questions, of course, are just what is left over in a recoverable state after a nuclear exchange and 150+ years...

My mistake! Just throwing out some interresting New York locations. Given we are as big as England and have lots of varied terrain it makes for a fun adventuring area. Also, can't forget we have the Hudson(albeit probably not safe thanks to nukes) and the St. Lawrence as well two very big rivers that were vital for trade.

The KFS was not designed to be realistic just unbeatable. Any update for 4th edition should address these issues.

And the Lone Star module needs to be adjusted for realism as well.

Not a mistake! I'm just trying to keep things simple, for now as I work my way through.

Even if you go with a smaller KFS, your looking at Kentucky, Tennessee, occupation of the far side of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers (control of trade at the very least), agriculture colonies in Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Mississippi, Alanna and Georgia, occupation of West Virginia (coal and gas reserves), and seizure of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
