Operation Shattered Union 2, 5Oct2013 @ G4S/ITI Training Facility, West Point, VA
MindGame Productions, Insanity Productions and the Dogs of War continue MAAPR’s Shattered Union legacy with Operation Shattered Union 2.
The year is now 2028, seven years after the pandemic that ravaged the nation and brought the United States to its knees. In the hollowed shells of towns and cities, state and local militias protect the population against warlords and rival states. The remnants of the federal government still operate with what armed forces remain loyal to Washington, D.C., supported by the hired guns of private military. But Washington is the titular capital of a failed state — barely able to protect its own population and supplies– much less restore law and order to the shattered union.
After the failed attempt of the Virginia Commonwealth to seize the Upper Marlboro Water Treatment Facility in 2026, famine and illness have further weakened the cities of the Commonwealth. Emboldened by their success in Upper Marlboro, the Maryland Defense Force (MDF) has pushed deep into Virginia on their way to the current capitol of Norfolk, 90 km in with 90 km to go.
The fortunes of the Commonwealth look bleak with the MDF just outside West Point, VA. It’s now up to the Virginia Commonwealth Regulars (VCR) to dig deep and summon the last vestiges of the famous “Stonewall Brigade” so named for their stand with General “Stonewall” Jackson at the Battle of Manassas Junction during the last war of Northern Aggression.
There is renewed hope for the VCR as the push south has significantly thinned the MDF forces who fight to maintain their critical supply lines. There are whispered rumors that a roaming mercenary group, inadvertently caught up in the battle, will join forces with the VCR to push the Marylanders north again.
