I saw a shapeshifter

I am hoping that by posting here I may connect with someone who has also experienced something similar or have heard of others who have experienced similar. Here is my story...
This experience happened at approximately 1:20am-ish Thanksgiving morning 2018. I live in SW Washington State and had rented a vacation home in Lincoln City, Oregon to accommodate mine and my sisters family who was flying in from Hawaii for The Thanksgiving holiday.
We had all arrived at the rental around 3pm. About 7:30 pm my son started yelling for me..he said my 1 year old grandson had gotten into my case with my blood pressure meds..and sure enough 1 of my pills was missing..we panicked and called poison control who told us to call 911 asap. They sent an ambulance and took my grandson to a small hospital in the area.
The staff there did what they could but told us they were not equipped for the situation and my grandson needed to be transported to Randall's Childrens Hospital in Portland,Or.
So, on Thanksgiving eve a pediatric ambulance was sent from Randall's to lincoln city..about a 2.5-3 hour drive due to holiday traffic. It arrived around midnight to pick up my Grandson.
My Sons wife road in ambulance with my grandson back to Randall's. Me and my son went back to the beach house to get diapers and clothes and started the drive to Randall's at about 12:30am.
Ok So here is where we encountered something that I and my Son will never forget for as long as we live.
We had been on the road for about and hour and had just passed the spirit mountain casino on hwy 18 and were in the area that was all hay farmland in between Bellevue and McMinnville. The road has 2 lanes only and is definitely a long deserted road especially at that hour of night. The ride had been very emotional as I felt extremely guilty for having packed my meds in a side pocket of tote bag where my grandson was able access it...I was terrified for him and crying. My son was also upset and although he was trying to hide it..I knew he blamed me 😔.
Anyway...here is the crazy part...
As we were driving .I noticed my son slightly drifting in the road..he was falling asleep. Twice I asked him if he was ok to drive and to be careful. So being that I was very concerned that he may fall asleep....I was very aware and up watching him and the road...making sure he would not fall asleep
As we were driving down this road going about 55mph...In the distance we both saw what at first we thought was a deer running in our lane of the road..coming straight at us, but within a couple seconds we realized it was not a deer but a golden colored horse. It must have been about 250-300ft away at that point. It got closer fast as like I said we were traveling at about 55mph. As it got about 150 ft away. It leaped upwards and morphed instantly into a giant owl right before our eyes. The wingspan stretched past our lane in the road..me and my son estimate to be between 12-15 foot wingspan. This thing was enormous. As soon as we saw that my son yelled out wtf?? and swerved the car to the left to avoid it and just as he did this, the owl immediately landed about 50 feet ahead of us to our right, in that little area outside the white line..like the bike path area. The owl kinda tucked its head and wings into its chest as if it were scared..or trying to hide. As we drove past it, I got a good look at it out my window and with its head and wings tucked in it still came up to about the bottom of the window of the Subaru. It seemed a little wider than the width of a beach ball. So about 3.5 ft tall and 20-24 inches all the way around the body. This thing was mind blowingly big. Now..as soon as this happened it was almost as if a trance came over us. It affected both of us in the same ways. 1. We both did not speak a word the entire rest of the drive at all until we got to hospital. 2. We both lost all feelings of being tired and it felt like a calm alertness and awareness took over. I never even felt the fear he would fall asleep after the encounter. 3. The memory of the experience was crystal clear, but the curiosity and wonder or even awe did not hit us until driving back through the same area the next afternoon after my grandson was discharged. It's like we suddenly both said.."and what the heck was that thing we saw last night"..and it all started pouring out from both of us..the exact same thing that we saw...my sons wife was asking us questions about it and we were blurting out the exact same answers... It was mind blowing... Till this day we talk about it and wonder..what did we witness that night. We both agree that this seemed to be some mythical creature or shapeshifter. We both also agree that whatever it was, it was Good and meant us no harm and may have been a guardian.. Or maybe it was something that we witnessed by accident..and maybe weren't meant to see. Either way..Just the fact that we both saw it. I feel extremely lucky and blessed to have seen proof with my own eyes that animal spirits or shapeshifters..or magical creatures do exist. Makes me wonder about stories of fairies and mermaids and pegasus..and Nessie may just be true.
If you got to the end... Thank you. I'm not very good at writing.
has anyone experienced similar?

A non-issue to ponder: the effect on problem gambling in Oregon

Yesterday we learned that, for the foreseeable future, bars and restaurants in Oregon are shut down for dine-in/drink-in customers. Today, we learned that the area's casinos Illani, Spirit Mountain, Chinook Winds, are also shutting down. The area's few poker rooms are also shutting down or in the process.
Except for the lottery options at your local convenience store (Keno, Megabucks, Powerball, etc.), the options for gamblers in this state have disappeared.
For those who have gambling issues or it is a large part of their social or recreational lives, this is going to be a shock. Perhaps it will give some people who have been in a perpetual spiral time to heal. Perhaps some will not be able to cope with the lack of playing options and do rash things. As someone who, in the past, has battled with my own gambling demons, I understand the power lure of the endorphins that are generated while gambling. Some compare it to the highs of drugs or alcohol.
Perhaps this period of "drying out" for the problem gamblers will be a good thing. In fact, I know it will. If you know someone like this, be kind to them. Their withdrawls from it are no less valid or difficult than that of an alcoholic or chronic drug user quitting cold turkey.

Delta Green AAR: State of Jefferson #0 Preparation

TL:DR: PTBP inspired me to run a Delta Green game and put together a campaign setting. To help with note taking and motivation, I decided to put together some After-Action reports and post them here.
-=-=-=-

Introduction

I run a weekly 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons game. Every Tuesday night for two years at this point for 6 PCs. Level 14, going on 15 in an adapted version of Paizo Publishing's Ironfang Invasion adventure path. We’ve probably got another six months of solid play, aiming for a finish at around level 18. Running this game for this long taught me a lot, even though it wasn’t my first long runner. But one thing it taught me above all else is:
I don’t want to run Dungeons and Dragons or anything like it anytime soon.
There's a whole tirade about why that is, but suffice to say a few months ago I started looking for a new system to replace 5e once my Tuesday night group was done with it. Plenty of good games stuck their heads up (Band of Blades/Blades in the Dark being my favourite) but none seemed to be a good fit for six people. Then I stumbled across PTBP and Delta Green.
I had played some CoC years ago and Sci-Fi Horror has to be my favourite genre of all time, tack on the modern setting and I was hooked. I had spent many hours reading SCPs and even a few writing some, plus running a Hunter:The Vigil game years back and even playing a Hunter LARP in the same time period. Plus the PTBP boys have such an infectious enthusiasm.
And then I actually ran a short 2-session story and realised that 6 PC Delta Green would be a nightmare. With the modern setting and the investigative style, players are constantly going off on tangents or separating the party. With 4 people and a tense feel, people stay interested, but with six (and more importantly, MY SIX), there is no way that it would be a cohesive session.
So I said what every ForeverDM says;
“This can become my campaign setting that I always say I’m working on!”
So I started writing a campaign setting for a Delta Green game that may never come. Enabling me to fully flesh out an entire region complete with NPCs, plots, eldritch horrors and the works! I’d slowly find players, run each of them through individual ‘Spookening’ sessions to show their origins into the Opera. It’d be dope! Having just finished my Honours Thesis, I wanted to establish writing as something I liked, not something I did for the expensive paper.
My Girlfriend was interested from the start and wanted desperately to play the game when it ran. I was talking about it a bit to different folks and when they asked ‘When is it running?’ or ‘Can I play?’ I would always say it wasn’t near ready, I mean, I hadn’t even mapped out all the airports in the region, how could I run a game there without knowing where the airports are? Eventually, I got cornered by four players (including my girlfriend) who wanted to be in the game, had a time, place and wanted to know if I would do it. This was the first lesson Delta Green taught me.
“Your campaign setting is never finished and nothing will make you write your important stuff like a game in three hours.”
So, I ran session 1 on a Sunday evening and haven’t looked back. This AAR will be an account of the setting, the story, and our agents as they travel a hopefully extreme and entertaining story. Hopefully, none of them end up on here since I’ll also try to include my Keeper perspective and process of putting together this setting.
Finally, a massive thank you to the PTBP boys, I’m not entirely up to date as of writing this (EP58) but I’m stoked to be an Honorary Police Officer and owe a lot of these ideas and growth to Zach’s style and the boy's hijinks.
-=-=-=-

The Setting.

As a preface, I’m not an American. I’m an Australian who’s never been to the Western Hemisphere. So my apologies for butchering your country, your towns, and your overall culture. I've moved some history around and changed some events to make my timeline work. Hopefully it's not offensive.
The basis and name of the setting is something I learned about from another podcast (shout out the BehindTheBastards and ItCouldHappenHere). The State of Jefferson is a secessionist movement in rural Northern California and Southern Oregon. Essentially a right-wing/rural response to the liberal cities of LA and Portland, these regions want to secede from California and Oregon, becoming the 51st American state. A Pacific NorthWest setting gives tonnes of great locales, from Redwood forests, mountain peaks, wild rivers and even some desert thrown in there. Couple this with problems with limited law enforcement, a multicultural history, and the stories write themselves.
I started by putting a map together since that always helps me visualise what I’m working with, plus at this point, this was just a campaign setting, not an active game. I made this map by taking one of the proposed State of Jefferson maps that I liked, editing out the state names, then searching for the incorporated cities of each county, along with their county seats. I didn’t use many scales, as you can see, and it makes Weaverville look really important even though it has a population of around 3,600. I also placed the state capital in Redding, after looking at the discourse around SOJ, turns out some want it to be Yreka, CA, since that was first suggested back in the sixties. But I couldn’t see that happening now. So I ended up with this map: https://imgur.com/a/Bx5Mnv6
So now I needed to make the State of Jefferson a thing, how would that happen in 2020?
I could see Trump doing it, in a crazy situation.
Jefferson counties are pretty solidly Republican, for the same reasons they want to be their own state to begin with. So I imagined a 2020 electoral race where Trump engaged with these far-right groups like the militias and such, promising a look into a 51st state. But saying it and doing it are two separate things. So let's ratchet up the tension some more.
Trump wins 2020, promising to look into the State of Jefferson. 2021 Trump has a massive stroke. Initially, it looks like he’s not going to pull through, the GOP starts planning for his replacement to step up. Current VP is an old-school Neocon named Andrew Cohen. But Trump does pull through and despite some major health concerns, seems convinced to stay in the White House. The old-school Neocons behind Andrew Cohen that used to be the soul of the GOP smelled power again and don’t want to give in, meanwhile the New-Right cultural conservatives backing Trump smell a coup. The GOP starts to implode. Trump, desperate to solidify his base, is firing out executive orders left, right and center. One of them is the creation of the State of Jefferson. A year later, it's 2022, Andrew Cohen is acting President and national politics is a shitshow. So many executive orders went out that it's impossible to pull them all back and it looks like Jefferson is going to stick.
But our players are going to be Federal agents, what are they doing in this backwoods state? Well, I imagine a new state appearing largely out of nowhere would throw all the federal departments a curveball. Suddenly they need to work out if the FBI needs a headquarters in Redding, what about DoD? DoJ? So they send a big audit team to work out what federal government efforts would be needed in the new state. This would be called ‘The Office of Temporary Handover’ and would be the taskforce my players would be assigned to. What I wrote up is as follows:

Office of Temporary Handover

A fifty person strong taskforce, the OTH is made of representatives of a large variety of shifting government departments. Their job was originally twofold:
-Maintain the essential functions of their organisations during the handover and establishment of the state.
-Assess the State of Jefferson for their various organisations, in regards to offices, resources, and personnel.
Officially the Federal Office of Temporary Handover was established on the 1st of April, 2022 at 2042 South Market St in Redding, which was to be the state capitol (not without a considerable fight from Chico, Eureka, and Yreka). Originally the OTH was headed up by Brennan Bartlet from the Department of Labour. Originally the DOL had intended the main aspects of the OTH to be assessing manpower requirements to then be passed onto the government departments to fulfill.
However, quickly after arriving on the ground in Redding, OTH leaders found that the twin regions of Southern Oregon and Northern California were a mess. Thirty years of, in some cases, criminal negligence from state governments had resulted in thousands of missed assessments, unsolved cases, and questionable decisions. The first big scoop was found by an analyst for the Treasury Department (Kyle Chapman) who found that all judicial efforts undertaken in the town of Paisley in Lake County had been taken over by the Millennium Forestry Company. Pulling on this string revealed the start of the problems for the OTH.
Quickly, Bartlet was replaced by Agent Luciano Pareja from the Department of Homeland security. The call went wide to nearly every single federal department to get their asses to Jefferson and work out what was going wrong in their respective fields. 2042 South Market street became a circus with the Department of Agriculture surveyors sharing offices with Aviation officials while the Department of Defence investigators camp out in the staircase.
It was during these initial investigations that things got interesting for those who were paying attention. The initial deluge of cases caught up all the obvious things, there had been no services conducted on the East Coast Cable Terminus in Point Arena was overdue for servicing by fifteen years, there were exactly fifteen missing persons reported in Modoc county national parks four years in a row and Douglas County sheriff Lyle Parsins has held the position for ten years despite the county records holding death certificates Parsins from 2007,2017 and 2019.
These odd reports languished in the stacks upon stacks of issues reported and aside from being mildly interesting when they were discovered, there were bigger fish to fry. Kyle Chapman later revealed a conspiracy of kickbacks and corruption between the Millennium Forestry and the Lake County supervisory council worth more than 13 million dollars, earning himself a tasty promotion. At the same time, the DA of Siskyou county was gunned down by a motorcyclist in Dorris. Two things became clear to everyone working in the OTH;
  1. There is so much to uncover in Jefferson that the real task is finding the biggest malfeasance you can and riding that investigation all the way to the top.
  2. The bigger the malfeasance, the bigger the risk that someone might try to take it from you or that it might blow up in your face.
This allowed those strange cases that were more interesting than juicy to slip through the cracks but also caused the OTH offices to become a den of paranoia staffed by some of the most ambitious young workers for these federal departments.
Its been two months since Kyle Chapman’s case hit the state court in Redding and 2042 South Market has spilled out into the parking lot with a massive gazebo. It's a hot summer and there is the promise of promotion around every corner as our PC’s arrive. The right and wrong kind of people have started to see the dots that need connecting, here's hoping someone stops finding dots.
-=-=-=-=-=-
Note: Sam, Bree, James, and Roni, if you have somehow ended up here, turn back now.
Finally, we needed a bad guy. This was the thing I had been avoiding, in favor of working out how many and where all the military bases are in Northern Cali and Southern Oregon (creating a real suspicious google history along the way). Being an investigative and paranoia based game about cults and conspiracy, I didn’t want to just to a ‘Monster of the Week’ style game. Plus one of my players is pretty well versed in his Cthulhu mythos, so I didn’t want to do something standard. Which made me want to stay away from Deep ones and fishbits (although maybe I can work the absence of Deep ones a plot point later on?)
So what do I have? I’ve got a need for a massive conspiracy, lots of pristine wilderness, a history of big American Indian tribes, Spanish Colonisation and American power. Plus a new state.
I know, let’s make the new state the conspiracy.
For some reason making this new state is part of some eldritch ritual about power and such. Sounds dope. Which Old God cares about human power structures and the corruption of man? Old buddy Nylarthotep.
Bam, we’ve got a non-standard bad guy and a huge conspiracy that can be staring them in the face the whole time. It turns the passive hints about the chaos of creating a new state into subtle easter eggs dotting the campaign.
But I also don’t want the eldritch ritual to be already done. Gotta give the players a chance to die trying to save the world. So perhaps it's just a step in the overall ritual. How many steps are there in the ritual? Well, a d20 roll tells me that there’s 16. It sounds like a good number to me. A story was coming together:
It was thousands of years past the original humans encountered the being known as Emperor of Sky and Earth, Ne-ab Gendumahaah, or simply the Spirit of Man, an implicit force in the Northern United States that influenced the minds of the powerful through dreams and visions. It would be the dreams of Ne-Ab Gendumahaah that would lead Rabbit Foot to solidify the Shasta people into a great confederacy. Where his favour goes, great power forms and those powerful will become great.
In reality, The Spirit of Man is an aspect of Nylarthotep, the chaos messenger of the Sultan, Azzathoth. What is happening in the North West is one spark of weakness that plays out as a flame of weakness against Azzathoth by his agent. A fleck of paint and pain on a tapestry millions of years and miles old.
The original intention of the Spirit of Man was the completion of sixteen rituals across the region. As more and more of these rituals would be completed they would weaken the differences between realities, these would corrupt the minds and world to the whims of those who would be powerful, granting them longevity and even passively twisting the world to support them. But it would weaken the nature of reality for all others, bringing in great monsters and factors. If all sixteen rituals were completed the Spirit of Man would be brought forward to bequeath true power onto the successful, in reality, the knowledge of Nylarthotep would be its own downfall as the invoker would be rent asunder and the damage wrought by the pursuit would wink throughout the cosmos.
The first ritual would be completed by a shaman of the Goshute People 30,000 Years ago. By the year 1700, the Shasta people had completed four rituals in total, this created the most powerful tribal confederacy of the West Coast. But the native Americans feared Ne-Ab Gendumahaah, intensely fearful of the give and take of existence, were difficult to enrapture to the power of the Spirit, but the White man was not. The Spanish would complete six rituals in the period between 1660 and 1840. The American people have completed five since the Union arrived, the last being the consecration of the Redding State Legislature. Now forces move to complete the final ritual as the Office of Temporary Handover comes into the picture. The players have to discover the connections between the rituals and attempt to stop the cabal of the rich and powerful before millions of people are killed.
-=-=-
This will leave the players investigating the fallout of rituals conducted long in the past, trying to put the dots together in time to stop the last few being completed.
This was about all I had going into session one. Since then we’ve had four total sessions and it's been a ride. Next time I’ll talk about session one and individual session planning/running. Thankyou for reading this and thank you again to the PTBP boys and community for being so amazing.
P.S - I tried to settle on a campaign theme like PTBP's No Backbone, at this point I'm split between Two Gallants - Fly Low Carrion Crow and Boogeyman - Black Casino and the Ghost.

Headcannon - Fallout: Willamette - Thoughts/Ideas for a New Vegas Type Sequal to Fo4

Posted this on another thread about what a New Vegas style sequel to Fallout 4 might look like, and apparently falloutlore was the wrong place to make a thread about it. So trying this once more, here are my thoughts about what a Fo4 spinoff set in Oregon could look like.
Setting:
Oregon, Northern Willamette Valley.
Have the map stretch from Portland/Maybe Vancouver, WA in the north down to Salem, maybe Eugene if they wanna be real ambitious.
Now I know Oregon isn't as big a name as DC, Boston, or Vegas but I think as a setting it has alot to offer.
*A large metropolis in the North. *Numerous towns and cities to act as population centers spread out through out the wilderness *Plenty of wilderness and undeveloped land to explore. *Deep history to build off of. How fun would it be to have Lewis and Clark or Oregon Trail themed quests and settlements. If they could somehow take the settlement building system and incorporate a Oregon Trail-esqu aspect to it that'd be amazing. *Plenty of lore about ferocious creatures in the wild. Angry mutated owls or some mutated sasquatch. (How cool would that be?!) *Proximity to the NCR Could bring back the casino system. I mean one of the most visited place in Oregon is Spirit Mountain Casino. Having the Confederafted Tribe of the Grand Ronde as a power in the region would be pretty cool now that I think of it. *And the list goes on.
Plot: The plot could focus around a similar geopolitical struggle to New Vegas's. The NCR has traditionally been the power in the region. The Northern most states of New Arroyo and Klamath include parts of the State of Oregon and are thus geographically close to the Willamette Valley. This proximity has created close ties between the NCR and the valley region.
However, since the events of New Vegas the NCR has become far more isolationist. (I'm going to assume the currier sides with the NCR in the end of NV). Despite its success in the war with Ceaser's legion, the NCR has found itself strained. The annexation of New Vegas has not go smoothly, the government's resources remain tight after having to finance a long war, and the economy has since faltered. All that has resulted in an NCR population that is far more reticent to get involved in areas beyond its boarders.
Meanwhile, a pseudo-facist power has risen out of the remains of the Seattle-Vancouver Megalopolis. It's government does not center around a central figure as much as a leading party. (Think post-Stalin Soviet Union). It is a very militarist and expansionist state and has done much to improve the lives of those in the former Megalopolis to the north of the Columbia. However, it is a very repressive regime and uncooperative people, dissidents, and "undesirables" tend to go missing.
In the Willamette Valley there is no single power so much as an assortment of closely tied city states. (Think, ancient Greece). The region has benefited from a number of natural and geographical advantages. *First, the region was not so hard hit during the Great War. Aside from Portland, it lacked a major economic, political, or military target to focus on. *Second, after the formation of the NCR the region benefited from economic ties with the republic. *Third, its vast wilderness (preserved as national and state parks before the Great War) have given the people an abundance of natural resources, which became even more valuable as the NCR's economy expanded. *Finally, the region was also relatively less dependant on fossil and nuclear fuels before the Great War. In the 1930's great hydroelectric damns were built to power the region, many of which remain and provide electricity to the larger population centers.
These multiple benefits however, have become somewhat of a liability in recent years. As the NCR's economy has faltered so too has its demand for raw materials. This in-turn has lead to a severe downturn in the region, which itself has caused unrest and instability.
Meanwhile the military power to the north eyes the region for its vast resources and many damns. It has been hesitant thus far to act too aggressively less it incur the wrath of the NCR. But now, as the NCR becomes more isolationist, things are beginning to change.
The city states in the valley, once largely unified, are beginning to fracture and become more hostile towards one another. These divisions are being further pushed by agents from the north that have begun spreading unrest and distrust among the people. Bands of political extremists who associate with the ideology of the northern power have popped up across the region. The situation is tinder box, waiting to be lit.
This is the situation your character would walk into. I'm not sure what the best back story for your character would be. Maybe another vault dweller, maybe a former raider from the east, maybe you start as an agent from the north. Or, you come in on a new post-war Oregon Trail caravan. A lot of cool options.
From wherever you start you could have a lot of options as to where to go. Work with the power from the north to create a casus belli for war in the valley, work with NCR opposition to try to get the republic to act to push the northerners back, pick a city state that you like the most and work with them to dominate the region independent of the other powers, form your own raider band and make yourself a power in the region, maybe something else entirely. Meanwhile you'll fight sasquatchs, lead your own post-apocalypse band of Oregon pioneers, find out what happened to the BOS in the area, explore the wilds, find isolated vaults, manage settlements, and so on.
Other Thoughts
*I was thinking about the Sasquatch creatures and thought it would be cool if they were actually just mutated beavers. (Since Oregon is the beaver state) There could be a whole plot line revolving around this. They could have extremely valuable pelts, and there could be a whole industry around collecting these. Similar to the original trapping industry that brought Europeans to the region. As the economy has slowed in the region and in the NCR, these pelts retain their value. Wealthy classes in the NCR value them as a luxury, and people in former BC and Alaska value them as the best materials for clothing to survive harsh winters.
So as other industries in the region have slowed, more and more people have begun resorting to hunting down these creatures for their pelts. Your character could have a quest where they go out with a group of trappers to catch one. During the mission, you get separated from your group and taken captive by one of the creatures, at which point you find out that they are semi-sentient beings. Then you have to decide whether to protect the creatures or help the struggling trappers.
*Another fun potential underlying narrative could be the arrival of more and more settlers from the New Oregon Trail. The reemergence of the Khans and the constant war between factions of the former Caesar's Legion have made life in the plains increasingly difficult. As a result more and more people have started heading west to search for greener pastures.
The NCR's isolationism has shunned these immigrants and they have refused to admit any into the republic. As a result an increasing number of immigrants are arriving to the Willamette Valley region. This has increased tensions within the region between the several city states as each handles the settlers in different ways. Many in the region resent the influx of immigrants as the current downturn, they feel, makes things hard enough. You character has to navigate this issue as they deal with the delicate political situation in the region. (Could even be directly effected by it, if your character begins their journey as a settler coming into the region.)
*Another idea has to do with potentially making the Portland area far more unstable than the rest of the region. A sort of anarchic area where a number of factions and raiders fight for control. This would be the central point of conflict re: the power in the north.
What do y'all think?

Old headcannon I wrote up. Think it relates, sharing to see if y'all want to use/adapt any ideas.

Just copied and pasted from an old post. I'm from Oregon so that's where this is focused, but I think a much of it is adaptable.
Copy pasta
So here are my thoughts about what a game taking place in Western Oregon would look like in terms of location and plot.
Setting: Oregon, Northern Willamette Valley. Have the map stretch from Portland/Maybe Vancouver, WA in the north down to Salem, maybe Eugene if they wanna be real ambitious.
Now I know Oregon isn't as big a name as DC, Boston, or Vegas but I think as a setting it has alot to offer.

*And the list goes on.
Plot: The plot could focus around a similar geopolitical struggle to New Vegas's. The NCR has traditionally been the power in the region. The Northern most states of New Arroyo and Klamath include parts of the State of Oregon and are thus geographically close to the Willamette Valley. This proximity has created close ties between the NCR and the valley region.
However, since the events of New Vegas the NCR has become far more isolationist. (I'm going to assume the currier sides with the NCR in the end of NV). Despite its success in the war with Ceaser's legion, the NCR has found itself strained. The annexation of New Vegas has not go smoothly, the government's resources remain tight after having to finance a long war, and the economy has since faltered. All that has resulted in an NCR population that is far more reticent to get involved in areas beyond its boarders.
Meanwhile, a pseudo-facist power has risen out of the remains of the Seattle-Vancouver Megalopolis. It's government does not center around a central figure as much as a leading party. (Think post-Stalin Soviet Union). It is a very militarist and expansionist state and has done much to improve the lives of those in the former Megalopolis to the north of the Columbia. However, it is a very repressive regime and uncooperative people, dissidents, and "undesirables" tend to go missing.
In the Willamette Valley there is no single power so much as an assortment of closely tied city states. (Think, ancient Greece). The region has benefited from a number of natural and geographical advantages.
*First, the region was not so hard hit during the Great War. Aside from Portland, it lacked a major economic, political, or military target to focus on.
*Second, after the formation of the NCR the region benefited from economic ties with the republic.
*Third, its vast wilderness (preserved as national and state parks before the Great War) have given the people an abundance of natural resources, which became even more valuable as the NCR's economy expanded.
*Finally, the region was also relatively less dependant on fossil and nuclear fuels before the Great War. In the 1930's great hydroelectric damns were built to power the region, many of which remain and provide electricity to the larger population centers.
These multiple benefits however, have become somewhat of a liability in recent years. As the NCR's economy has faltered so too has its demand for raw materials. This in-turn has lead to a severe downturn in the region, which itself has caused unrest and instability.
Meanwhile the military power to the north eyes the region for its vast resources and many damns. It has been hesitant thus far to act too aggressively less it incur the wrath of the NCR. But now, as the NCR becomes more isolationist, things are beginning to change.
The city states in the valley, once largely unified, are beginning to fracture and become more hostile towards one another. These divisions are being further pushed by agents from the north that have begun spreading unrest and distrust among the people. Bands of political extremists who associate with the ideology of the northern power have popped up across the region. The situation is tinder box, waiting to be lit.
This is the situation your character would walk into. I'm not sure what the best back story for your character would be. Maybe another vault dweller, maybe a former raider from the east, maybe you start as an agent from the north. Or, you come in on a new post-war Oregon Trail caravan. A lot of cool options.
From wherever you start you could have a lot of options as to where to go. Work with the power from the north to create a casus belli for war in the valley, work with NCR opposition to try to get the republic to act to push the northerners back, pick a city state that you like the most and work with them to dominate the region independent of the other powers, form your own raider band and make yourself a power in the region, maybe something else entirely. Meanwhile you'll fight sasquatchs, lead your own post-apocalypse band of Oregon pioneers, find out what happened to the BOS in the area, explore the wilds, find isolated vaults, manage settlements, and so on.
Other Thoughts
I was thinking about the Sasquatch creatures and thought it would be cool if they were actually just mutated beavers. (Since Oregon is the beaver state) There could be a whole plot line revolving around this. They could have extremely valuable pelts, and there could be a whole industry around collecting these. Similar to the original trapping industry that brought Europeans to the region. As the economy has slowed in the region and in the NCR, these pelts retain their value. Wealthy classes in the NCR value them as a luxury, and people in former BC and Alaska value them as the best materials for clothing to survive harsh winters. So as other industries in the region have slowed, more and more people have begun resorting to hunting down these creatures for their pelts. Your character could have a quest where they go out with a group of trappers to catch one. During the mission, you get separated from your group and taken captive by one of the creatures, at which point you find out that they are semi-sentient beings. Then you have to decide whether to protect the creatures or help the struggling trappers.
Another fun potential underlying narrative could be the arrival of more and more settlers from the New Oregon Trail. The reemergence of the Khans and the constant war between factions of the former Caesar's Legion have made life in the plains increasingly difficult. As a result more and more people have started heading west to search for greener pastures. The NCR's isolationism has shunned these immigrants and they have refused to admit any into the republic. As a result an increasing number of immigrants are arriving to the Willamette Valley region. This has increased tensions within the region between the several city states as each handles the settlers in different ways. Many in the region resent the influx of immigrants as the current downturn, they feel, makes things hard enough. You character has to navigate this issue as they deal with the delicate political situation in the region. (Could even be directly effected by it, if your character begins their journey as a settler coming into the region.)
Another idea has to do with potentially making the Portland area far more unstable than the rest of the region. A sort of anarchic area where a number of factions and raiders fight for control. This would be the central point of conflict re: the power in the north.

Fallout: Willamette (Aka my head cannon dream for a New Vegas style game)

Posted this on another thread about what obsidian could do, would like to see what others think.
I would like to see another game, like NV, before fallout 5. I'd love to a) see what more can be done with this engine, and b) get another story in the West. Here's my head cannon fantasy of what they could do:
Setting: Oregon, Northern Willamette Valley. Have the map stretch from Portland/Maybe Vancouver, WA in the north down to Salem, maybe Eugene if they wanna be real ambitious.
Now I know Oregon isn't as big a name as DC, Boston, or Vegas but I think as a setting it has alot to offer.
A large metropolis in the North.
Numerous towns and cities to act as population centers spread out through out the wilderness
plenty of wilderness and undeveloped land to explore.
Deep history to build off of. How fun would it be to have Lewis and Clark or Oregon Trail themed quests and settlements. If they could somehow take the settlement building system and incorporate a Oregon Trail-esqu aspect to it that'd be amazing.
Plenty of lore about ferocious creatures in the wild. Angry mutated owls or some mutated sasquatch. (How cool would that be?!)
Proximity to the NCR
Could bring back the casino system. I mean one of the most visited place in Oregon is Spirit Mountain Casino. Having the Confederafted Tribe of the Grand Ronde as a power in the region would be pretty cool now that I think of it.
And the list goes on.

Won my first live tourney today!

Well, to be honest, wound up chopping the pot with one other player.
It was a deep stack tourney at Spirit Mountain casino in Oregon with an $80 buy-in and I walked away with $532. feelsgoodman.jpg. I think the tourney started with 35 players and ran for six hours, I was pretty exhausted toward the end and when the last remaining player had pretty much the same stack as me and offered to chop I agreed. The chop was about $100 less than first and $100 more than second and there was probably less than one big blind difference between our stacks.
Anyways, aside from home games, this is only the third time I have played live poker and it's the biggest buy-in I have ever paid, I'm pretty stoked!
Hooray me! Now that I'm home it's time for a beer.
P.S. Huge thanks to all of the well-informed discussions on here. I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but the info gleaned from this sub has improved my game immensely. I can't claim that I didn't get lucky a time or two, but I think I played a solid game and it paid off.
I think I will put my winnings towards a nice .22 silencer I have been eyeballing for some time.
