[Aftermath!] The D.C. Campaign: The Dead Kennedys

The Dead Kennedys

Location: Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, Washington, D.C.

Population: 770
Military Strength: 235
Military Resources: Few small arms, mostly hand weapons, including sports based equipment (baseball bats and football gear). Limited civilian vehicles.

Treaties: Treaty Hospital

Enemies: Pentagon (the isolationist faction, see below)

Resources: This group supplements growing crops in the stadium proper by scavenging a wide-range of materials across the District.

Trade: A wide variety of goods scavanged from D.C., including electronics, medicine, canned food and hand weapons.

General Reaction: -5 (+5 from people with Treaty Hospital).

Background: The Kennedys came from a mix of sports teams, fans and journalists who used the stadium as a defensible base to keep the mobs and gangs at bay during the dark years. Using the equipment available at the stadium, as well as small arms raided from nearby police and national guard armories, they managed to keep the stadium and area around from descending into total chaos. They were one of the first communities to support Treaty Hospital.

Currently, the leadership is going through some in-fighting which hasn't come to direct violence or assassination yet, but it's only a matter of time. One faction is focused on isolation and taking what they need, no matter the consequences, while the other faction wants to increase trade and communications through the nearby communities.
