Approaching the third year of war in this specific area, the mountainous region of Getbakistan has become barren and unpopulated. Most of the area residents have fled to refugee camps in neighboring Kriegistan, although a few remain trying to protect their homes and crops. With the lack of governmental control over the territory, warlords have seized control of the non-militarized areas and left a path of destruction and chaos in their wake. One warlord in particular has taken extreme advantage of the lack of global attention, seized several crops, and began to grow significant amounts of poppy. With the money generated from the poppy production, the warlord has built a sizeable determined force.
Despite Getbakistan and Kriegistan being at war, both sides do not want to complicate their fight by battling a local warlord; therefore both sides have committed forces to ousting the warlord and his poppy production labs. With global efforts focused on the reconstruction of Iraq, the UN and NATO have remained out of the situation since their envoy was attacked last year, but they have vowed to commit troops to the region if it begins to stabilize.
Both armies have hired private intelligence officers who have been able to provide much information about the activities of the militia and the warlord in the valley. Thus, the reputations of the intelligence officers have become aware to the warlordâ€™s militia, and they have become a high priority target of the militia, as well as each respective army. Both armies seek to destroy the poppy production and rid the region of the militia.
The Getbakistani army held out stronger at the end of the cold, winter battle last year, but the Kriegistani army has sought to regain much of its territory this year. They have been training and seeking to appoint the right commander for the job.
This year new regions of the field will be fought over, more props will be worth great value, and more civilians are caught in the middle of the chaosâ€¦...
