Homestead, Nebraska

General Overview

Once a small, quiet farming town a few days ride south of the border of the Sioux Nations, Homestead has grown quite a bit since the characters last saw it – and the growth all appears to be malignant! 

With a small railhead linking the town to Wasatch Rails main line, the many small family farmsteads which once dotted the landscape outside town have been swallowed up by fields run by automated inventions of science, all part of the ever-expanding Abernathy Farming Company. Even the quality of life in the town proper has devolved significantly, thanks in no small part to the many transients or rail workers who stop off in Homestead, looking to blow off some steam and spend their hard-earned cash.
