New Frontiers Coalition (Rifts)
Wichita Falls was a mid-sized military base that protected an oil
field, cattle range (several ranches), a dairy plant and helped to defend
the southeast corner of CS holdings. It has been expanded over the last
five years to become a major military base and serves as General Kashbrook’s
Base of Operations as she sends troops further southeast toward
the Kingdom of Worth and the Dallas ruins. Chi-Town has committed
one division (5760 troops) to this operation, joining the 59th (human)
Infantry Brigade (1920 human troops), the nearly 1400 support personnel
(humans), and the 44th “Sun Devils” Air Cavalry Battalion (640
power armor and aircraft troops), and the “Wichita Demon” Brigade of
(1920) Dog Boys already stationed at the post. Five companies of
Skelebots (800) are also among the Wichita forces.
Civilian population of Wichita Falls is 12,230; mostly ranchers and
dairy farmers with 20% working the oil field. The area around the small
city is surrounded by farmers (mainly peach tree groves, wheat, corn
and cotton farms) with an estimated population of 6100 — 18,330 total,
all humans and all loyal to the CS.
Satellite Military Outposts are located at or near the ruins of the
pre-Rifts communities of Wilbarger, Electro, Holliday, Clay, Archer,
New Castle, Mortem and Abilene. Each of these desolate posts are in the
middle of nowhere, with Wichita Falls being the closest population center.
Typically each outpost consists of a single bunker, water tower, and
a supply shack. Troops are limited to a platoon of Dog Boys, a squad of
Robot Mechanized troops with 3-5 giant robots, typically 1-2 IAR-2
Abolishers and 1-3 IAR-5 Hellfire, and a platoon of (40) Skelebots.
