What is Beckettville?

Welcome to Beckettville! It’s not often we get new residents.
In fact, how did you get inside?
  Beckettville is the major metropolis with a robust local government and fantastic business and retail services available for its citizens. Founded in what was once known as middle America, it now stands as the sole settlement within the vast wasteland that was Earth. Separated from The Unspoken Zone by strange, abandoned suburban neighborhoods, the citizens of Beckettville are provided all they need by The The Hiram Beckett Company.
 

The Tour Starts Here




Beckettville Public Centers

In order to run a safe and happy city, Beckettville has a number of public facilities and institutions available for their citizens. These include departments such as the Beckettville Fire Department, Human Resources, Parks and Recreation, and Law Enforcement, among many others.


The Hiram Beckett Company

Founded generations ago by Maurice Beckett under the name Orion Enterprises, it has been passed down and changed names since it fell in the hands of heir Hiram Beckett. Hiram pushed the company for a more corporate outlook, presenting himself as the public face and becoming a household name in his first two years. The company became the saving grace for survivors of The Extinction Event, offering a sanctuary for the lucky individuals accepted inside.

I wish my "about" page looked like this. You've given me the startings of ideas.

Actually considering doing NaNoWriMo.

This is a great article! Its easy to follow the themes of your world and I love being able to explore the relevant and important articles to further describe your world. I can very much imagine Becketville as a setting for a TTRPG! I'm getting Paranoia vibes, but... Extreme Capitalism Paranoia vibes!   I also love your font choices - makes it much easier for me to read :)   Gees, I feel very inspired to work on further explaining my own projects with an article like this. Congratulations on the daily feature!

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed!! I'll soon be enforcing certain security clearances, so perhaps a Paranoia-based one shot is in order for the future! ;D
