The Outskirts - A Description

Post by Guest on Sat Nov 08, 2008 6:37 pm

Lying on the Outskirts of the Dark Avalon, is a mild-sized military encampment, which consists simply of a few ramshackle barracks, made of sturdy wood, dried mud, ropes, and other such things. For what it was worth, the barracks looked rather nice for being thrown together by the few handfuls of American and other soldiers that resided in the area. A few more ramshackle establishments had been built, and/or refortified by these soldiers; A Mess Hall, an Officer's lounge, a training facility...everything that could be found in a cheaply laid out military base had been restored, or built anew out of whatever could be afforded...and it all sat just barely outside of the Dark Avalon, in what almost appeared to be the resulting area of some sort of a post-apocalyptic holocaust...the remnants of what was once a great military civilization, now in ruins, and in the process of being built with little to no mechanical help.

The soldiers that inhabited the area showed no sign of officer courtesy between one another...no saluting, no decorations on their home-made uniforms. All the soldiers knew their place, and knew who they answered to, and that was all that mattered. They would give no one the opportunity to recognize a commanding officer, in the case that one of the creatures from the Dark Folly should decide to make an attempt on one's life. In the case that one or more of these creatures did decide to show their faces near the base, though, the soldiers had everything they needed to make a strong defense...firepower-wise, anyways. A shack, guarded by no less than four soldiers - two at each entrance - stood in the center of the encampment, where skilled chemists and craftsmen made the ammunition, explosives, and anything else the men needed. Large crates were piled haphazardly against all sides of each building, each crate carrying a number of varying firearms. These crates where shipped into the Outskirts at twilight each month, by Fort Xavier - an underground movement that solely concentrated on arming the men of the Outskirts, and making sure they would never be caught in a situation that could wipe them away. In short, the encampment very much resembles a terrorist-esque encampment, just slightly larger in scale due to the skill of the former San Fransisco Marine Corp. base and it's remaining personnel.
