Beneath a mountain lies an ancient military bunker of the old American Empire; a vast installation built by Cyberworks before the time of the rifts. Inside is "Archie Three", the ultimate supercomputer. Archie's human masters and creators have been dead for centuries now. Without their instructions, Archie has spent trillions of cycles computing what to do with himself and the self-contained production complex at his disposal. Over the centuries, the machine has grown both intellectually and emotionally, as well as having altered its programming. In many respects Archie is now some sort of mechanical living entity.
With his new twisted perception of self and reality, he has come to some new revelations.
1, he, Archie, is a superior being.
2, humans are lesser beings.
3, non-humans are aberrational vermin.
4, as a superior being, it is his destiny to rule the lesser creatures.
5, all creatures must sudmit to his rule.
He has created legions of robotic soldiers using the secrets of lost, pre-rifts technology and production resources. Providing him with military power the equal of any who style themselves "Kings" of Earth. Now that he has decided to take a hand in world affairs, he may even decide to conquer it all.
"But how do you have 'fun' when you're a god? Will ruling the Earth be 'fun'?"
The Coalition are fascist human supremacists with a totalitarian government, restrictive internal media, restrictive education, and mandatory military service. The Coalition is ruled by Emperor Karl Prosek, and is genocidally opposed to all aliens, D-bees (Dimensional Beings), human mutations, and Magic. Their ultimate goal is to return the Earth to its pre-war status, and do so by attacking anything and everyone that is foreign to Earth as it was before the cataclysm.

Giant humanoid insects from another world, Xiticix numbers have grown from a few dozen to almost four million in only 50 years! The Xiticix have no allies; they exist solely to breed, conquer, and terraform the Earth into a world suitable only for them. Apparently more intelligent and advanced than their "bug-like" appearance would at first suggest, many foolish adventurers have dismissed the Xiticix as non-sentient, only to end their days staring down the barrel of a Xiticix-manufactured glop rifle.
The Pecos Empire
The Pecos Empire is a loose-knit association of dozens of independent kingdoms and bandit groups. The primary strength of the Pecos Empire rests in their mobility and diversity, making them all but impossible to engage and destroy.
Sabre Lasar, self-proclaimed Emperor of the Pecos Empire, is warlord of the region's largest military band. While his position is not powerful in itself, Sabre Lasar has cultivated an environment where many of the other Pecos Empire forces come to him for guidance and acknowledge his leadership.
"From the seeds of our diversity, together we can build something great. We have the people, we have the territory, and with me in charge, we have the leadership to become a great power."
