New Delphi is located within a former military installation and nuclear bunker on the outskirts of the area FKA Jackson, Wyoming.

The five-acre facility, built during the Cold War, was formerly used by The North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) to monitor the air space of the United States and Canada for missiles, space systems, and foreign aircraft through its early-warning system. The complex was built under 2,000 feet of granite to deflect a 30 megaton nuclear explosion within 1.2 miles. With its high level of surveillance and physical fortification, the bunker offers the New Delphi citizens superior defense against the warring angels.

The most remarkable quality of New Delphi is the population itself. The populace of approximately 23,000 is 50% human, 50% possessed/8-balls living side-by-side in peace.

Unlike their warring cohorts, the New Delphi possessed do not attack humans, but are civilized. They are not treated as monsters or enemies but as fellow citizens with equal rights and privileges. The lexicon for the lower angels is also distinctive. The citizens do not use the term “8-ball,” but possessed humans are referred to as “the possessed,”
or simply “angels.”

The city maintains a Merchant Economy based on bartering, where material items are valued by numerical credits.

Beneath the city lies an Underground Holding Area for unstable possessed, which doubles as a prison for law-breakers. This is colloquially referred to as “ The Asylum.” (LOC: 4QFJ 123 900)

The New Delphi legal/disciplinary system mirrors their barter economy (“eye for an eye).” The details of this system remain unclear.

The citizens utilize verbal, written, and radio communication.

The transactions are conducted on the city’s Central Trading Floor (LOC: 4QFJ 123 855): a high volume area with 2 armed guards (weapons: M7 Bayonet w/ Sheath + SIG Sauer P226 Semi-Auto Pistol)

Weapons and ammunition are in high demand, and Empyrean weaponry maintains the highest trade value.

The city’s leader is Julian (last name unknown). He is 38 years old, 6’0, 170 lbs., with brown hair and green eyes. His notable personal qualities are his charisma, authority, and volatility.

Julian resides in private chambers (LOC: 4QFJ 123 954) and travels with a Security Detail: 2 armed guards (weapons: rifles/M4 Carbine w/ ACOG Scope and side arms/SIG Sauer P226 Semi-Auto Pistol). Julian maintains a high-level security system. The entrance tunnel (LOC: 4QFJ 123 560) is armed by 6 guards clad in Full Improved Outer Tactical Vests (IOTV) (weapons: Kalashnikov rifles). 10 Empyrean Steel Net Traps line the perimeter, and 3 Armed Humvees are stationed at: 50 ft. N, 50 ft. E, 50 ft. W. Additional transportation includes 5 Armed Humvees /color: camo/ no visible plates. And 5 Jeep Wranglers/ color: black/ no visible plates. Security deficiency: Entrance tunnel is not guarded 24:00 – 02:00, MWF.

FOR FOLLOW UP

Five to seven times a week, Julian takes a blue urn into a hidden room in his chambers (“Room X”). Audible screams occur in 5-minute intervals of 30 seconds. After 20-30 minutes inside Room X, Julian exits with the urn in hand.

NEXT MISSION
