Morrow Project North
Main Mission Briefing:
In 1962 a mysterious man known by the name of Bruce Edward Morrow, origin unknown, gathered nine of the country’s leading industrialists into an organization know as the Council of Tomorrow. He seemed to have possessed the ability to transport himself and some small amount of nearby matter into or out of the future. Building a convincing argument from the future, he and the council structured an organization dedicated to the continued survival of the human race beyond the point of destruction.
This organization brought forth the concept of The Morrow Project; an ambitious plan to cryogenically freeze special teams and equipment to aid in the reconstruction of the U.S. after the fall of civilization. For many years the Project secretly stored their teams to await the proper time for re-awakening.
The Morrow Project could not prevent the coming catastrophe, nor did they have the resources to help everyone immediately. It was possible to help with the rebuilding, but even this was a massive undertaking. Plan became action and over the years many well-trained teams were cryogenically frozen in hidden bunkers to emerge at the time when their resources and help could do the most good.
Intended to be part of an organized plan to rebuild North America, your team has a 3 to 5 year post catastrophe expected wake-up call. Your team must rely on their ingenuity, training and each other to carry out the general orders of the project:
- Assist the population in rebuilding America whenever possible.
- Reunite with the bulk of the Morrow Project forces.
Morrow Project North Background:
It was an incredibly cooperative enterprise, known to the Council of Tomorrow, that saw a Morrow Project Recon Team boltholed on central Vancouver Island in a remote area of Strathcona Provincial Park.
Between Bruce Edward Morrow and a unknown Canadian industrialist the Myra Falls Operation of Boliden-Westmin Resources Ltd. (Breakwater Resources Ltd.) was bought out and transformed into a Morrow Project Facility. The mine site is 90 km southwest of Campbell River tucked into the mountainous landscape of Strathcona Provincial Park in central Vancouver Island. The mine shaft starts at an elevation of about 2000 feet, but the lower working levels of the mine are below sea level.
The mine operation was temporarily shut down after the initial acquisition and went through a major ‘upgrade and retrofit’ after which the site became operational again, although only for a short period. Mr. Morrow and the Canadian industrialist staged a bankruptcy and shut the mine down for good.
Under the guise of “Environmental Health and Mine Safety Inspections” the bolthole received a number of equipment upgrades before the start of WWIII. Much of the equipment and gear, with the help of the unknown Canadian, came from Germany and the UK.
And thus was born Recon Team BC-R-01 code named “Task Force Yáahl”
