Casita Del Sol is an extremely small community located in a hidden valley in a large mountainous area. Surrounded on all sides a swiftly moving river and an almost impenetrable rocky surface, this is one of the most secure colonies. Due to it’s location, it is almost impossible to find and the community is comprised of the same group that was there when it began. The main camp is located in the center of a large meadowland where a large amount of horses graze. They have one small wooden cabin for meetings, meals, and storage.

Community

This small community is very close knit and everyone naturally carries their own weight. They each have a job and they do it. There is no regulation on work days, holidays, or hours. If someone is not carrying their weight, everyone comes together to discuss and resolve the issue. While they welcome newcomers they have not seen anyone since their decision to settle. They bring with them over 100 trained dogs and 122 horses, trained and in the process of training. They have a few small gardens and use the dogs to hunt wild game within the mountain ranges.

 

Community Events

  • Daily Group Meals
  • Daily animal training
  • Weekly hunting missions
  • Weekly spiritual services

NOMAD visits every two weeks

Items for Trade by Casita Del Sol:

  • Trained Dogs and horses
  • Animal fur

Defense and Security

With such a small population, a regular police force has been found unnecessary. They have disciplinary meetings when needed and the whole community votes on punishment if required. SCION special forces are over 2 weeks away but a small scouting party for SCION is stationed in the area and can lend assistance if necessary.

 

However, early in the apocalypse several members of Casita Del Sols core citizens came upon a large weapons cache and they are one of the most well armed colonies known.
