Fractured America [Quenched]

Postby isaiah40 on Tue Sep 01, 2009 8:40 pm

Here's an idea.

The U.S. economy totally collapsed in 2040 and 10 years later the U.S. is totally fragmented with extremist groups (both political and religious) fighting over territories. Canada split up since their economy was reliant on the US's, so the French finally separated with the rest of the country deciding to tough it out.

The UK decided it was time to reclaim some of their lost territories from the Revolutionary war (they were enemies of the US for the last 25 years).

Mexico conquered half of New Mexico, Arizona and Texas.

The Cubans in Florida just ceded from the union and joined Cuba and took southern Alabama and Georgia with it.

Bonuses:
There are 86 territories with 14 bonus territories PLUS bonuses for holding X number of capitals!

Game play:
- 6 Capitals start as neutral
- Random placement
- Some impassables with no one way attacks

That's it. As you can see it is your standard game play with a couple of extras.

Very nice draft. I can see this being great for Quads and eight-man singles. Good job.

Good start, calling Eastern Pennsylvania "NY" {twitch} :evil: I'm pretty sure you could fit "Phila" in there. I dunno if the political party logo are copyrighted, you might have to look into that. If so you probably could call them "red" and "blue" states and convey the same idea.

Ooops ... Next revision it will be chanced. How about Phil instead of Phila? Also since they are political parties by the people (supposedly), they are in public domain. (Notice the slight change in the Democrat's logo?)

Phil is fine :)

If the logos are public domain your good, I'd just make sure to be on the safe side. Yeah, the donkey is little further left then I remember. ;)

I love the idea of it, the only problem I see is the game play venturing too close to USA Apocalypse.
Maybe the groups should be more along the lines of the "Bible Belt", I don't understand a couple of them.
Great first draft

Looks awesome man, but I was wondering shouldn't there be a Mormon bonus region centered around Utah????.....I mean this would be a highly feasible region in what you are describing.

Sounds a little more likely than the whole West Coast going Islamist.

interesting concept, looks good. the canadian area is really muddled, and wouldn't make sense if this is about the US economy... but whatever... just clean it up in the top area

aactually, the Islam population is rising, while homosexuallity has remained at a steady seven percent or less.

Anyway, I don't think the bible belt should go all the way to northern va and the maryland area. Northern va is actually a very diverse, non redneck area with tons of high tech and millitary jobs near the dc area. Maybe you could have a secret society nation or sumthin.

It would also be cool as a feature to have a special gameplay tidbit of a small, maybe four territory area (possibly swine flu quarentine) where people can go in, but cat come out? I'm not sure, but it seems a pandemic of sorts would cause all of this ruckus in the first place, no?
