Dire Skunks

[The Day After Ragnarok]

 

They’re getting larger by the year: three years after the Serpentfall, a fully-adult Dire Skunk is at least as big as a Great Dane, and that’s just the ones born in 1946.  The ones being born now are possibly going to grow up to be as big as a pony. Dire Skunks retain many of the characteristics of their pre-Serpentfall kin, including the omnivorous diet and the spray.  The spray in particular is absolutely still there.

The New Concord

[The Day After Ragnarok]

 

City: Concord, NH

Population: 8,100/73,000

Controls: arguably, New Hampshire

Government: Democratic

Problem: Monsters

Heroic Opportunity: Bounty

City Aspect: Fortified.  

New Hampshire actually weathered the Serprentfall remarkably well.  Manchester and Nashua were wrecked by the tidal wave, but the state capital of Concord was above the floodline, and new Governor Charles Dale was in town and able to coordinate relief efforts effectively.  The last few years have been incredibly hard, but Governor Dale can still truthfully claim that he is the legitimate and legal governor of New Hampshire. Dale was re-elected in an honest election in 1946, and will likely be re-elected again in 1948; interestingly, New Hampshire also plans to vote for a US President in the same election, despite the fact that the entire Poisoned Lands stretch between them and what’s left of the USA.

Mortar Geckos

(strophurus igenti amicae)

[The Day After Ragnarok]

Imagine a gecko with a golden spine and grey-black mottled scales.  OK? Now make it as big as a horse, and give it the ability to shoot sticky mucus from its tail.  And there you have it: the mortar gecko. All Mortar Geckos are descended from zoo specimens in North America and Europe; the various parent species are all from Australia, and are resolutely free from mutation.  Oddly, while the species was clearly mutated by the Serpentfall, it shows none of the usual signs of Serpent taint.

Fort Avalon

[The Day After Ragnarok]

 

The island of Santa Catalina, California had already been taken over wholesale by the US war effort prior to the Serpentfall; and it was summarily ignored in the confusion, chaos, and wholesale devastation that shattered the United States.  It took the US Coordinating Committee a year to even formally realize that the facilities on Santa Catalina were still in operation, and by then it was… perhaps ‘too late’ is the wrong term. The various groups there still all recognize the authority and legitimacy of the Warren administration.  Provided that President Warren doesn’t push too hard on that.
