Alba Longa

A series of villages on low hills near the former site of Des Plaines, Illinois. Although the area narrowly avoided the destruction experienced by nearby O’Hare International Airport, postwar radiation levels led it to be abandoned until the present day. Currently Caesar’s Legions have retooled portions of the city’s residences and factories to produce ethanol and mechachariots for their legions, as well as provide housing. The current mayor and commander of the VIII Legion is Gaius “The Clueless” Clunius, with his headquarters in the old McDonald’s Museum. Frequent patrols by the home detachment of the VIII Legion keep the area mostly clear of megavermin, though some may slip by and colonize the still largely abandoned area. Multiple railroads intersect in Alba Longa, providing excellent guideways for Caesar’s Legions to project power across the region.

The Fishmongers are interested in projecting power at Lake Opeka, source of the water used in Caesar’s Legion’s ethanol factory.
