Texas Star history, culture, and philosophy are defined by their interactions with the faction known as Steppe Tribes. Decades of open conflict and early historic defeats shaped the Texas Star into a formidable military force. Their Rangers are regarded as some of the most fearsome fighters in the wastelands.
Despite their strong military stance, Texas Star are often the first to the table in diplomatic situations and are generous in their negotiations. They have a strong cultural belief in individualism and self-reliance, crafting a political climate that favors mutually beneficial alliances and trade deals.
Texas Star society is largely governed at the settlement level, with power resting in the hands of the Mayor and their citizens directly. They view themselves as rugged survivors, and survival builds strong character. Strong character creates a strong community.
To establish mutually beneficial alliances and trade deals with other factions, maintain strong defense, and protect their citizens from outside threats.
- Family bonds
- Rugged individualism
The Five Families:

Free Land Confederation - Texas Star is dependent on Confed supply lines to support their fight against the Steppe Tribes.
Patriots - Both factions share similar political viewpoints, though treatment of the Steppe Tribes is a strong source of contention between the two.
Desert Rats - The Desert Rats are too lenient on outlaw banditry for Texas Star authorities’ comfort.
Freedom Fighters - Texas Star publicly supports Freedom Fighter efforts to depose regional warlords and keep gang activity under control.
Steppe Tribes - The long history of violence between the two factions persists to the present day.
