Wasteland People and Places


The following is an excerpt from The History of the Desert Rangers.

The Early Years

by Karl Allard

2087

Allard Press, Ranger Center Hardbound pp. 293, $20 gold.


VEGAS is the city of Las Vegas. No one is quite sure how the Soviet missiles managed to miss the city, but most folks figure it was because the ``house'' was betting against a missile landing -- and no one wins against the house. There was an international rumor about some Russian general's markers being torn up after the attack, but that has yet to be confirmed.

Undaunted by its brush with perdition, Vegas is still open for business and does very well for itself. The city is large enough to avoid conquest, and many elements of the desert rabble have even found gainful employment as enforcers or casino employees. Despite the relative success of the city, however, there are dark rumors about horrors descending from the north to taking up residence in the city sewers. All may not be extremely well in the jewel of the Desert.

NEEDLES is bigger than Quartz. Aside from the flood that resulted when Hoover Dam was hit, life has not changed much in Needles. Needles is big enough to defend itself from roving bandits. However, it has become home to a couple of odd cults. The folks in Needles don't really like strangers that much, but they've welcomed Desert Rangers in the past and are always willing to trade goods with them.

QUARTZ is a small town that suffered extensive damage from the nuclear vattacks, yet managed to survive. Although located far from the large military targets, this tiny community was affected by earthquakes and low-level nuclear fallout. But in its feisty, small town way, Quartz quickly resumed normal life. About the only trouble Quartz has these days is with bandits.
