  1. Enjoy this draft. Mingombe The Kingdom of Mingombe (“ubukumkani buka-Mingombe” in Xhosa) is a sovereign nation in the continent of Africa. It is a member of the United Nations, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The name Mingombe roughly translates to "people" (in Bentu). Mingombe has a population of about four million. Its capital and largest city is Mbazi. The two official languages in Mingombe are Xhosa and Bantu. Approximately 74 percent of Mingombeans speak Xhosa. The Kingdom of Mingombe is located in central sub-Saharan Africa, bordered to the north by the Republic of the Congo, to the southeast by Zambia, and to the southwest by Angola. The country lies between latitudes 6°N and 14°S, and longitudes 18°W and 28°E. It is just south of the Equator. The size of Mingombe, 240,000 square miles, is slightly greater than the area of France. The Mingombe government is a constitutional monarchy. The King of Mingombe, [To be named], holds formal authority and acts as a non-party political head of state under the constitution, with the government operating in the monarch's name. Mingombe has vast mineral and petroleum reserves, and its economy is among the fastest-growing in the world. The standard of living remains high for most of the population, however. Mingombe has a tropical climate, with high annual rainfall supporting several forest regions. As a result of the geology of the region, a huge amount of mineral wealth has been exposed (and is thus accessible to mining) throughout the country. Cobalt, cadmium, diamonds (both industrial and gem-quality), precious metals (gold, silver, copper, zinc, manganese, tin), as well as germanium, uranium, radium, bauxite, iron ore, and coal are all plentiful, particularly in the eastern part of the country. Rarer metals, such as vitaenium and dynamium are also available, here. In [Date TBD], a meteor landed in Mingombe, which contained a large deposit of edurium, the strongest metal known, making Mingombe the only source of the alien metal on Earth.
  2. Great memory! It's actually the Paranormal Alert Response Team, but you win a no-prize anyway!
  3. In our published setting it's the Paranormal Alert Response Team (P.A.R.T.). Advances in equipment since the original book will see them utilizing special powered armor (see below). The Sheriff's Department has it's own version, called the Sheriff's Armored Felony Enforcement (S.A.F.E.) Team. It's a team of highly trained deputies in powered armor, much like the City's PART unit. The basic powered armor used by both teams is based on the Cavalier armor of the 1990s. It has anti-ballistic plates, basic air filtration, enhanced strength, an enhanced sensory suite, communications system, a handful of defensive systems, and less-lethal weapons available, all monitored and controlled via a modern Heads Up Display (HUD). Additional modules are available which convert the suit to a more specialized role. These include the Flight module, Lethal Force module (sometimes called the "sniper suit"), a Heavy Weapons module (called "big guns"), and an Environmental module (called the "Haz-Mat" suit). There are four squads of six deputies each. Each squad has two Flight units, two Heavy Weapons units, and two Lethal Force units. (The SAFE team does not maintian any Environmental units.)
  4. We don't have a specific military unit with that mission. Nothing like P.A.R.T. at this point, at least not publicly known... Are you thinking along the lines of a group of military folks in Cavalier armor?
  5. I just finished writing up the Army National Guard Units. I'd be happy to send them to you to look over.
  6. I don't think we're going to be writing up any Navy units for San Angelo, unless you count the Coast Guard Air Station (or recruiters). But thank you. Maybe for an Angel Beach supplement down the road.
  7. This is an interesting discussion, full of some great ideas and points.
  8. I could use some assistance for the ANG units. Anyone have some experience and background with said unit types?
  9. In a nod to my favorite cop show, the San Angelo Police Department has been given special "rockers" designating specific precincts and some special units. Here they are.
  10. I've been playing with some award and medal designs and doing mock-ups of uniforms, using Photoshop to add agency patches, etc., to actual uniform shirts. Here are a couple of samples.
  11. In honor of the recent National Police Week, we present the San Angelo area law enforcement agency patches. Enjoy.
  12. Taking your military characters to Southern California for an exercise or deploying them to Southwest Asia? Try these patches. Cheers!
  13. I updated the images, so I've deleted the old image.
