BACKGROUND

Orifino was the biggest city on the New Perce Indian Reservation before the Final War. It survived in a limited form the destruction by reinforcement of the US military for almost 50 years before they moved out.

The Idaho State Hospital North had been cleared out the last two years of pre-war times and used for a pentagon military project entitled Abacus. The 10 families that were settled here grew over time and eventually were all that was left after the military left.

The facility and town both had something happened the fall before Leo’s arrival, no sign of where the residents went. There is plenty evidence of horrific occurrences happening to the town however so the outlook isn’t good.

BACKGROUND

Driving into Fish Lake always starts in the evening with the community shutting down. It is a relaxed community that relies on tourist dollars and rich people living here. The day to day goings on for the community is always the same.

The people repeat what they did every night their community was attacked. What attacks the community shifts every. night as well. The only thing that remains the same in the attack is the man named John of Patmos and his 1972 Pontiac Grand Safari Station Wagon.

Appearances: 

MAPS/IMAGES

BACKGROUND

Coyote Springs was an unknown slave holding post and raw uranium for the last 500 years. It has been kept secret owned by Major Richardson’s family for the last 60 and is used by Julio and a few others at Cold Steel as an “off the books” rest and recuperation area along with where they can sell slaves or pillage they don’t want Cold Steel to know about.

The development itself has a small solar farm, enough to power a city five times larger then it currently is. Along with secured holding facilities for slaves being transported through or stored the main purposes seem to be trade with other slavers such as the Martok and for the mining of uranium by hand.

The highlight of the area in looks is the Coyote Springs Golf Course which seems to be as green and nice as it was in the pre-war days. Unprecedented amounts of water are used from underground river and pre-war water supplies to keep the area green.

The mine itself is less then 10 miles out of town but difficult to get to. It goes down hundreds of feet and there are things that live inside the mine that appear to have been human once. The mine has recently been sealed, at least from the main entrance side and is currently being watched over by Cold Steel Security Forces.

BACKGROUND

The University of Utah Hospital was a research and teaching hospital on the campus of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. It served as a major regional referral center for Utah and the surrounding states of Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana and New Mexico. University of Utah Health Care was praised for the following specialties: cardiology, geriatrics, gynecology, pediatrics, rheumatology, pulmonology, neurology, oncology, orthopedics, and ophthalmology.

The hospital was operating up to the evacuation/destruction of Salt Lake City during the Final War. The hospital and research components are in fairly decent shape, supplies still seem usable and there was evidence of a great rush of victims and refugees in the last days.

The biggest portion of note was that it’s morgue was overfull of pre-war dead still in their lockers, and the incinerators below the morgue were used in overtime, so much so they damaged two of the four incinerators. Thousands had been incinerated daily.

Leo had scouted the hospital and secured it with the reinforcement of Tasha and her unit with white coats.

BACKGROUND

Hill Air Force Base served as a major air support base for the U.S. Air Force, part of the old United States of America.  In its prior use, the host unit at Hill AFB is the Air Force Material Command’s 75th Air Base Wing (75 ABW), which provides services and support for the Ogden Air Logistics Complex and its subordinate organizations. Additional tenant units at Hill AFB include operational fighter wings of the Air Combat Command (ACC) and the Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC).

It was also a secondary research center after the incident, but before the Final War. The US Government abandoned this location three days before the Final War, the reason for this has never been determined. There is one item that appears unusual, a new wing had been hastily built to serve as storage. It was nicknamed the “Hill Vault”. Current info indicates other locations had impromptu vaults built but complete data has not yet been unearthed.

BACKGROUND

An old air force base originally redone as a community airport and then taken over after the Final War by the Church of the Children of Fire.

Serving as a full time church for the Wendover Children of the Fire – Church of the Redeemed this location is a little off the beaten path. The high priest Gillian Rhodes is friendly enough with people, although he will profess the life of the Children of Fire, he is a reformed priest and does not believe forced conversion as something desireable.

The church/base consists mostly of mutant humans but there are some altered/mutant animals as well. The church used to be the site of a Lutheran church that had been abandoned either right before the war or right after.

The site itself was nuked, but there was no effect to the base and the surrounding half mile. In response the military cleared out whatever they wished to attack with a subsequent nanite strike. No one currently here knows exactly what happened.

BACKGROUND

Dugway is the location of the telemetry system Leo utilized to first hear live communication from the satellite in geosynchronous orbit above Salt Lake City. Below is some highlights of the location:

Dugway Proving Ground is located about 85 miles (140 km) southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, in southern Tooele County and just north of Juab County. It encompasses 801,505 acres (3,243 km², or 1,252 sq mi) of the Great Salt Lake Desert, an area the size of the state of Rhode Island, and is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges. It had a resident population of 795 persons as of the 2010 United States Census, all of whom lived in the community of Dugway, Utah, at its extreme eastern end.

It is 13 mi (21 km) south of the 2,624-square-mile (6,796 km2) Utah Test and Training Range and together they form “the largest block of overland contiguous special use airspace measured from surface or near surface within the continental U.S. (207 by 122 nautical miles)” (383 by 226 km).

The transcontinental Lincoln Highway passed through the present site of the Dugway Proving Ground, and is the only section of the old highway closed to the public. At least one old wooden bridge over a creek still stands. The name Dugway comes from a technique of digging a trench into a hillside to create a flat surface along which a wagon can travel.

UFO speculation

Following the public attention drawn to Area 51 in the early 1990s, UFOlogists and concerned citizens have suggested that whatever covert operations may have been underway at that location, if any, were subsequently transferred to DPG.

The Deseret News reported that Dave Rosenfeld, president of Utah UFO Hunters, stated: Numerous UFOs have been stored and reported in the area in and around Dugway … [military aircraft can’t account for] all the unknowns seen in the area. It might be that our star visitors are keeping an eye on Dugway too. … [Dugway is] the new Area 51. And probably the new military spaceport.”
