The State of Superior and the Other Lake States: Encounter Tables

Setting info via The Zak Method.

After The Night of Blood and Tears human remnants in the Great Lakes regions of the US and Canada huddled into medium cities that survived. Eventually these settlements evolved into the Lake States, dominated by Superior. They are human purists and virulently anti-magic and nearly as anti-psionic.

In the Lake States there are three basic types of areas in The Lake States: urban, farmland, and fringe (originally wastes).

  1. Pretty cool. I live in Upper Michigan and could totally see this stuff appearing in “Superior.”

  2. Glad it rings true to a resident. Do you have your MREs for the nuclear fueled magical holocaust (Night of Blood and Tears) and are you ready for me to seek refugee with you?

    I learned about the whole State of Superior movement from a friend in the Navy from the LP. I always thought it was just perfect for any weirdness or gonzo idea. Plus, it rings truer to me than a rebuilt Chicago being the center of human survival in a world gone mad. Now, Detroit, given the last census numbers, I can see refugees moving into after it isn't destroyed because it's abandoned.
