Emerald City Blue
The northernmost district of Seattle has long been known for “ships, planes, and stormy weather,” as Everett is located along the northern part of Puget Sound. It is famous as the home of both the Everett Naval Shipyard (UCAS Navy) and Federated Boeing’s aircraft construction facility. With the Snohomish River cutting through the district’s northeastern sector, Everett is also an area of natural beauty, close to hiking trails and rainforest vistas.
The Crash 2.0 decimated the district, wiping out records of land ownership and creating a bureaucratic nightmare that’s still being sorted out over ten years later. The UCAS military solved some of the problem by seizing “disputed” properties and mollified some of the corps that complained by redistributing some of the wealth to them. The small fry often abandoned properties in the area, letting squatters move in and claim them. Right behind them came the Triads to carve up the booming market in drugs, chips, and illicit sex.
