Deadlands: New Mexican Standoff
This small but reasonably prosperous mining town serves as the Union naval base and main army outpost in the Maze. Union leadership maintains an uneasy truce with the Shan Fan Triad, since it’s better for business. Plus, the Union’s got enough trouble dealing with the ragged remains of the Confederate Navy and Kang’s many pirate vessels, not to mention hiding from the Mexican Navy’s raiders.
Brigadier General Malcolm Gill commands Fort Lincoln as best he can, bent on maintaining a U.S. presence in disputed California, but he’s constantly at odds with Lt. Commander Locke, the head of the Union Navy. It’s believed Locke would rather fight it out than hang on by the fingernails. Fort Lincoln maintains strong allegiances with the inland cities of Sacramento and Placerville, which are exemplified by well-maintained Union Blue rail lines.
