The cops are… all right? This week, we attempt to recover the trail of the webbled dog and discover that while we’re searching for the dog, undesirables are searching for us. Oops.

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter IX: Friends and Family

"Your friend? You don't have any friends!"

The words rang and echoed in his head, eliciting a mental wince each time.

It had been a hurtful thing to say to Todd, not because it was true--it wasn't; weird as they were, Todd had developed and maintained numerous friendships across the Badlands.

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter IX: The Conversation That Wasn't

32 Spring 1928

Lyta snuck glances at her brother as she drove. Todd was in the back, engrossed in one of his books. Lukas had the passenger seat and was watching the windshield intently. No one spoke. No one had spoken for hours.

Khayr ad-Din

The crime and poverty of living on the planet’s greatest rubbish pile only added insult to injury for the colonial-era settlement of Monroe. For centuries, that city thrived in the Badlands until, one day, a storm of white corrosive sand eroded it into near non-existence.

Centuries passed where the poor inhabitants of what became know as Khayr ad-Din, built on the vestiges of Monroe,  eked out meager existences recycling and reclaiming what they could form the global trash trade. These “Trashers” formed the economy.

Prince Gable

The Westridge Range forms a north-south barrier between the Barrington basin and Western plain to one side and the Great White desert, Cajun plains and Marathon basin to the other. Slithering up its eastern side for a thousand kilometers is the Westridge Trench. It is reputed to be one of the most spectacular physical features of Terra Nova, and many tourists from the poles came to visit the topographical wonder.

New Baja

Old Port Baja was founded in TN 740. It was one of the three largest cities in the Badlands until the second wave of the War of the Alliance when it was destroyed in the now famous Battle of Baja.

Nearly half the population was killed or displaced by the war. Little remains of the once lauded “Jewel of the Badlands”. The survivors of the battle eked out a pitiful existence after the war, beset by rovers and easy prey for anyone to abuse.

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter IX: SNS On The Hour News Report for 32.SP.28

Reporting from our tower in prince Gable, this is SNS On The Hour news. 

Good evening. Reports are emerging from a wave of refugees recently arrived in Jan Mayen of an alleged slave camp in the E.S.E. Eyewitnesses report illegally indentured commoners were rescued by an unspecified force. This comes only a few weeks after the brazen kidnaping and murder of a MILICIA officer in Bangweuleu. If the reports are true, it may be an indication that the AST is attempting to tighten security in a region known for ever increasing instability and lawlessness. Some analyst believe we could see a repeat of the open revolt such as the one seen in Basal in 1920...

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter IX: An Apology

Lukas found the wreckage of three Jagers about 50 meters from the camp. They were sand-blasted clean and the dry desert air around New Baja kept them rust free. He knew they must have been stripped of anything of worth long ago, but their outward appearance in the pre-dawn light was still remarkably intact and threatening. Somewhere in the distance helios was pulling itself over the horizon to announce a new day.

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter IX: Changing Winds

They were camped somewhere south of New Baja, their tents camouflaged in the half-buried wreckage of a forgotten skirmish from the war. The wind was up and whipping at the shelters as a modest storm approached. Lukas and Todd were sharing one tent, Fennec was watching the Ranger in another and Ti and Lyta had settled into theirs.
