I awoke with a start, something hit me in the face. reached for the rifle that lay at my side. It ended up being a peice of old newspaper, I grabed it and glanced at the headline

Nuclear Collapse !!!

In the righthand corner June 18th,2025 can't believe it's been 2 years since that happened......

Tensions grew among nations during the winter of 2022. The United States was getting involved in some serious arguments with forign nations about Nuclear power. Middle Eastern goverments where getting fed up with the US's involvement in their country's operations, charges that the Star Wars Missle program was merely a military launching platform alarmed a number of nonaligned nations.

Tensions grew among nations during the winter of 2022. The United States was getting involved in some serious arguments with foreign nations about Nuclear power. Middle Eastern goverments where getting fed up with the US's involvement in their country's operations, charges that the Star Wars Missile program was merely a military launching platform alarmed a number of nonaligned nations. The right wing governments in the South and Central Americas, many of them set up by the U.S. during the Drug Wars (1987-1993), pledged their support to the U.S. The NATO nations, including the new African members, also declared their alliance with the US That move forced most of the remaining neutral powers to join the Middle Eastern protest. In six short weeks, only Switzerland, Sweden, and Ireland continued to declare themselves neutral nations. Two weeks before Star Wars was fully operational, the station transmitted a distress signal. Immediately after the message was sent, most of the satellites orbiting the planet were swept clean from the sky, leaving the great powers blind. In military panic, each sent 90 percent of their nuclear arsenals skyward. Although the destruction was tremendous, it was not complete. Pockets of civilization remained, some even oblivious to the military exchange. On the same day that the US and Middle Eastern countries were attempting to wipe each other out, a company of Engineers were in the southwestern deserts building transportation bridges over dry river beds.

They worked deep in the inhospitable desert valleys, surrounded by a number of survivalist communities. Located directly south of their position on that day was a newly constructed federal prison. In addition to housing the nation's criminals condemned to death, the prison contained light industrial manufacturing facilities. Shortly after the nuclear attack began, the Engineers, seeking shelter, took over the federal prison and expelled the prisoners into the desolate desert to complete their sentences. As the weeks passed, they invited the nearby survivalist communities to join them and to help them build a new society. Because of each communities suspicions towards one another, times were difficult at first. But as time nurtured trust, this settlement -- which came to be known as The Last Outpost Survial Town -- grew to be one of the strongest outposts. L.O.S.T even proved powerful enough to repel the bands of psychotic criminals who repeatedly attacked in attempts to reclaim what was once "rightfully theirs."

The citizens of L.O.S.T, after first believing that they were the only ones who survived the nuclear maelstrom, soon realized that communities beyond the desert's grip had also survived. Because they had such success in constructing a new community, they felt compelled to help other survivors and live in peace.

Toward this end, L.O.S.T sent out "Rangers"(highly-trained and rapidly deployable light infantry force with specialized skills), in the great tradition of the Texas and Arizona Rangers a century before, were born.

Over the past few years, the Rangers have seen many changes in both form and leadership. Ranging from the casual group led by CasheKicker, through the militaristic force commanded by Cachman, to the rag-tag faction of C&C runs the present day, the Rangers have changed based on their leader's view on the philosophy and aim of restoring civilization.

This brings us up to where we started the story, the situation now...........

A leader of one of the northern communities was Dragonflys. Dragonfly's was a great leader. As all GPS satellites had been eradicated during the initial strike he had learned to rely on the skills he gained as a Scout leader. Navigating without GPS was a skill that had long been lost as people relied more and more on their battery operated positioning devices.

Dragonflys looked up towards to sun to get his bearings and take note of the time of day......
