99 Luftballons Character Questions

If you really want to hone your character abilities, one thing you can try is to "Interview" your character using this character set. Some of them might be a little peculiar considering our setting, but the general idea sticks. The ability to easily answer all of these questions from the characters perspective suggests excellent development of that character.

I think it's a great idea. Couple questions:

1. Why are all the US states cut up into little box squares and not Canada as well?

2. Can I have a nation that exists by hanging out on the Great Lakes? Kinda like, but NOT the same as the big oil tanker in Waterworld?

I think it's taken from a map of the US showing this region and the states/counties, and not the Canadian ones.

Go find a Canadian map if you want Canadian counties. Or find a cartographer who will map out every single administrative division in the world, ever. Like Google Maps.

Name/Nation: Green Bay Confederation

Player Type: Confederated State

Map: Posted Image

Flag/Banner: Posted Image

Description/Bio: The shortage of basic necessities that followed the Storm led to civil unrest throughout the nation, and Green Bay was no different. The situation worsened after the national guard abandoned the city to focus their attention on the larger cities. Shortly after, state assistance was withdrawn, leaving the City Government to deal with the situation on their own. The City responded by organizing a volunteer militia to help the police force keep order. Initially this plan seemed to work, but the situation began to fall apart again as these militia's started to operate outside of their mandate. Militia leaders began to extort citizens of the city, forcing them to pay protection money or face the consequences. The city government's ability to handle the militia's continued to slip as the police force got weaker.

In 2021, a year after the storm that had brought down civilization, a militia led by a young war vet named Bruno Morgan overtook the police force and forcefully disbanded it's government. Before opposing militia leaders could act, he systematically had them assassinating, cementing his control over the city. Despite his illegal behavior, Bruno was certain for the first few years of his regime that the United States Government would regain control, declaring his state the "Green Bay Provisional Government". The Provisional Government's earliest struggles were supplying the city with basic needs, such as food and water. Gardens were encouraged, and patrols were put in the bay to keep it safe for fishing. Water purification systems were also set up in order to make lake water safe for consumption.

The following years grew increasingly hard for the young nation. News of both the state and federal government's collapsing disheartened the people of Green Bay as they slowly realized that there was no going back. The populated cities in the south failed to sustain their populations, causing hordes of city dwellers to pour across the countryside, pillaging as they went. Bruno's military came into use when these hordes reached Green Bay. Drawing on his knowledge, he was able to properly organize and train the cities militia to fight off their disorganized enemies. Green Bay was one of the few places to fend off the raiders, strengthening it's primacy.

Despite the mass emigration from the cities, people continued to gravitate to them in search of wealth to plunder. Others, including raiding gangs, sought refuge in the cities. Disturbing reports of a violent plague coming out of these old population centers began to reach Bruno's ear. Though the cause was disputed, people in the cities were coming down with an illness that caused them to violently hunt and consume other humans. Unlike the zombie lore of old, these infected people were very much alive and retained most of their intelligence. It would be decades before these creatures would be spotted roaming the countryside near Green Bay, but the stories surrounding them would grow increasingly horrifying with the years.

As the worst parts of the disorder began to fade, relationships between neighboring towns began to grow. The nearby town of Appleton, which had retained it's pre-storm city council, began to work closely with Green Bay as the two organized agricultural endeavors to increase their food supply. They also cooperated militarily, defending each other against the outside world.

Though an otherwise conservative person, Bruno did not settle down to marry. Despite his permanent bachelor status, he fathered several children with multiple women. Using his power, he managed to adopt his illegitimate spawn, raising them as potential heirs to his family name.

As the years following the Storm event turned into decades, Green Bay's area of control slowly crept south under command of Bruno's second hand Michael Hooker. Despite his deep seeded religiosity, Hooker's brutality frightened his friends and enemies alike. Hooker's successes gained him a significant amount of power in the young Green Bay nation, but not enough power to enforce his version of religion on the populace. He instead funded the creation of "The Church of the Holy Flame", successfully drumming up support in the countryside but failing to gain much strength in Green Bay itself. Though he didn't give sermons personally, Hooker hired preachers who shared his literal interpretation of the bible. Hooker was also a firm believer in the supernatural aspects of Christian history, believing in the existence of demons and witches that roamed the earth. His passionate, if not violent, attempts to put down those who he perceived as agents of these creatures gained him the nickname "Witchhunter", which he wore with pride. As time went on, The Witchunter and his church gained control of the countryside, effectively governing it separate from Green Bay itself.

As Bruno entered middle age, he brought together several local leaders in order to broker the creation of a confederation. Though most of these local governments chose to stay independent, the confederation managed to form with three members. With Green Bay and it's close ally Appleton as the first two members, the third member was the nearby "Door Kingdom", a sparsely populated monarchy governed by the elderly curmudgeon Walter Felton. Later on, as the Witchunter and his Church began to grow increasingly independent, Bruno recognized this independence by allowing them to join the Confederation as an independent member, bringing it's membership to four.

Hard living quickly caught up with Bruno Morgan. Long suffering from a myriad of health issues, Bruno died in 2053, leaving his nineteen year old son Bernie in command. Early on, it looked as if Bernie would be the victim of a violent coup, as several military leaders openly voiced their interest in taking control. This brewing coup was quashed before it began when Bruno's old ally Michael "The Witchhunter" Hooker voiced his support for Bernie, causing Bernie's enemies to fall back in line.

Despite his decadent lifestyle, Bernie showed himself to be a competent ruler, keeping the confederacy together while establishing formal relations with factions all across Lake Superior. Despite this, the threat of civil war never completely went away, and Bernie has began to consider engaging in expansionism in order to keep his opponents busy. Having set his sights on the lake, relationships with the nearby independent city of Escanaba has began to sour. Pirate attacks on Escanaba and it's property have increased over the last few years, and the people of Escanaba believe that Green Bay is to blame. The Green Bay Confederacy has not pounced, however, as news from the south tell of prowling bands of infected city dwellers preying on whoever they run across as they migrate northward.

Rain, snow, sleet, hail, or high water will never stop the glorified mailman.

On that note, for anyone setting up in or around Michigan I would appreciate if you correspond with me on the matter since I have discussed a story arc I want to do there involving some rather personal belongings for fourth wall fun. I have designated an area of central Michigan I would rather not have touched, and have even began plotting out a series of rumors for the Detroit-Flint area.

Not to mention a "Republic of Queer" centered in Gaylord.

So if your adventures start you or will involve Michigan soil then speak with me on the matter and we can work something out.

How many paragraphs per post does there have to be? I was guessing kind of like oZode's stuff, where you could have less detail, but in more frequent posts, or more detail, in less frequent posts.

Hello. I am a signature, nice to meet you.

Obviously, a sentence or two won't cut it.

I was rushing a little because I wanted to post this at a specific time.

But we were talking about doing this zombie thing more as a form of insanity. Something more akin to the reavers in Firefly, where they are people but they have lost their humanity and are primarily predatory at this point.

The bandit-zombies sound more like FO3 raiders in my book.

I'm guessing that little pass in between wasteland areas will either be heavily guarded by a group of people there who charge huge taxes to go through, or will be infested with all sorts of fun.

Cleveland: now even more arguably worse than Detroit.


Oh, and if anyone needs some kind of "adventurer" sort of dealio that isn't a courier I sort of created something of an adventurer get-up that I'll likely be regularly recruiting. The "Aventurier" are sort of free-lance scouts and mercs who have been scattered about the Canada/Michigan area at least. Formally woodsman soldiers of a failed Quebecois nation, they were charged with being the hand of rebuilding the "French America", and indeed their name is from the French word for Adventurer. They've also picked up French names.

However, pretty sure their associated nation would have collapsed and died real quickly in the pre-lore to leave them scattered and soldiers without a home. Per my lore, I'll be bringing back the MMR who took over their Michigan Outpost at Sault Ste Marie which was a marker of the end of the Quebecois nation which would disappear from the region and leave its Aventuriers behind.

Largely, I might as well base them in the general MMR area that's the Upper Peninsula in Michigan. The Aventuriers have also refused to swear loyalty to the Republic. But they're too few in numbers, spread to thin, and now way too disorganized to be a threat. And besides, the Mackinac-Mackinaw Republic could use their contracts. Even if these contracts are informal in the eyes of the Aventuriers left.

I think it gives us an option for another lone-ranger type deal since these guys would be like the Apocalypse variant of 17th/18th century French fur-trappers. They'd know the way of the woods and be sort of bad-asses in a way. May still need someone looking to pick up an Aventurier to speak with me so we can establish a uniform lore and that I can get you on the same page as I in regards to such things as Flint-Detroit and that area in central Michigan I am keeping reserved for story purposes.
