So, thanks to AP episode 1, I have been proven an IDIOT. Not only was Jacksonville spared, most of the technology remained in place as well. This information and description is fantastically helpful, but frustrated that I wasted folk's time with previous posts. This is gonna be a solid one shot, my PCs will be disenchanted with all the all the inaction of the city's leaders and shall try to escape the walls of the city anyway they can.
I do have the problem of figuring out how they keep their vehicles going as we (Jax current) do not have a capacity for refining fuels like the jet fuels needed to keep fighters in the skies.
Future posts I think I will take to the AP forum. Thanks for the time folks.
This is not to say that Nukes were not launched at you, but that (Maybe) a Missile Defence System, something similar to NORAD, may have been successfully deployed and stopped the nukes from hitting. Or that their may have been technical malfunctions and their are now undetonated nukes laying in the surrounding area.
As far as the fuel goes, Moonshine production is not that far off from Ethanol production and sense, well, Georgia is not that far away (just saying here ).
I know that in IL, if you have a home still, that some counties require you to get a license and have regular inspections to make sure your not making Ethanol ( or Moonshine). When i was in Highschool my agriculture & FFA ( Future Farmers of America) teacher/ adviser had his own still and he would bring it up from time-to-time.
