My earlier players might better recognize the organization in question as the Phoenix Institution--where they once served on a team called the Phoenix Force. These have since been retconned to Firebird Institute and Firebird Patrol.Since the last campaign [20 years ago in both real and game time] the United States have collapsed, and a collection of new federations has come to dominate North America in its wake. Furthermore, mutants and psionics have come to be recognized as a "growing issue;" these parahumans need to be dealt with--but the successor states cannot agree on how. In Texas, Dixie, and Appalachia parahumans are feared and their population controlled; in New England, California, and Cascadia parahumans are celebrated and their population protected. These recent events form the backdrop of the LegacySPORE setting.
