Broken Hills map, in-game graphic.

Description

A mining town founded by a super mutant and a Brotherhood paladin that was supposed to unite humans, ghouls and mutants. Unfortunately, racial tensions undermine the fragile balance between the three communities.

Broken Hills, an unpopular town with new players. Considering there isn't many things to do there, while there are a fair few traders and NPCs, the true purpose of this location is to serve as a battlefield between the numerous factions that participate in Town Control.

This town was not always like this, way back in Session 1 of the server and even before on 2238 server, Broken Hills was the main turf of certain Role playing group calling themselves "Broken Hills Hunters". They would always be telling other players that was willing to listen how Broken Hills is an excellent ground for any RP activities. Furthermore they used to organize a lot of player run events in this town. Broken Hills Hunters were active for quite long time before finally getting disbanded.

Nowadays Broken Hills remains silent. Not many players venture here. Only few dare to explore the underground corridors. Rumors have spread claiming a gargantuan creature of impractical size residing deep within the caverns of their very town. It is rumored to be three times larger than the average deathclaw, and supposedly triple its strength. Ghouls in Broken Hills named it: "Chupacabra" after the legend in the US. Local Super Mutants are calling it: "Squelch of Bane" and humans dare not mention the monstrosity hidden in their catacombs.
