Peace River


They wouldn't let me join the army the first time I tried. I called a recruiter the day after Peace River was bombed, but they "weren't accepting applications due to current events." The current events being our home being blown up! I ended up joining up with the rescue and cleanup teams and spent three cycles in the worker barracks they threw up in warehouses. Finally they let me join the military, but I know I'd really been signed up since the day the CEF set off that bomb.

Peace River: Rebuilding
from Devastation

Sales of the Pit Bull light security and patrol gear are up 18% this quarter while sales of the Warrior remain flat. The recent military action has been costly, but I'm confident that the recent CEF activity will make it easier for our salespeople to convince Badlands community that they need something better than a rusted-out Jager to defend their homestead.

-Unnamed Paxton Arms Product Manager


Peace River is a city-state in the badlands dominated by the Paxton Arms corporation. In addition to selling armaments to all Terra Novan factions, Paxtion Arms and the community of Peace River became a rallying point for Badlands communities during the CEF's first, failed, invasion of Terra Nova. Their leadership as well as manufacturing strength allowed the polar forces to rally and drive the CEF from the planet. Peace River, despite limited population and holdings, became a powerful political entity on Terra Nova. 

The CEF did not forget this, and in TN 1939 terrorist forces destroyed Peace River with an anti-matter device. Their intent was to remove a major opponent and use the chaos to pin the blame on the polar powers and cause the Interpolar War to spin further out of control, This plan appears to have backfired, though: Peace River survived and rebuilt, and the bombing was the catalyst for peace talks that ended the Interpolar War. 

This was not enough for Paxton's CEO, Gerald Simosa. Ending the war was not enough, and Peace River became the first contributor to the Black Talons, convincing the Polar superpowers to join in on the multi-national strike force. Even as the communities and businesses of Peace River rebuilt, prototype next-generation Gears and equipment were readied for both the Peace River Defense Force as well as their allies, the Black Talons.

Peace River forces are organized into two variants. The Peace River Defense Force is their 'military' and acts to protect Peace river and their Badlands allies. The Peace Officer Corps is a police force equipped with Gears and other vehicles to help keep the peace in Peace River and badlands communities.  

Despite building weapons for the other factons, Peace River struggled to build their own walkers and some units still make do with Gears purchased from the polar leagues.
