The 2014 Rionegro game is over, and was a great success. No word yet on the 2015 game, but if when there is, then we will announce if here and in the usual channels.

From the 2014 game…

The Civil War in Rionegro has become a stalemate. After three years of fighting neither Munoz’s Republicanos nor Veron’s Patriotas have been able to decisively gain the upper hand. The international community has strong armed the two into agreeing to hold a presidential election on Sunday August 17th. No one is sure how a vote in a war zone will turn out, so both sides are continuing to fight for an advantage. And now a new force has arisen to challenge both for the future of Rionegro.

Across the country La Cara Nova – “the New Face”, have started a campaign against both the Patriotas and the Republicanos. It’s not clear where they originated, who is leading them, or where they are getting supplied and funded from. But they are drawing support from people all over the country. Their claim to fight for the people of Rionegro is resonating with a population weary of the war. Totally hostile to the Republicanos and Patriotas they are more neutral to the United Nations forces who remain in Rionegro. The PR disaster of their soldiers attacking the UN last year led the Domiguans to hastily withdraw from the war. Since then the UN has beefed up their forces in Rionegro to protect civilians and to run the upcoming vote.

Local MapRionegro’s roads are poor, and the rainy season makes travel on all but the main roads very difficult. Controlling the major routes is key to sustaining military operations in the Autumn and Winter. Right now the Patriotas control the village of Jaloque which sits on the strategic junction between Rionegro’s Route Nacional 4 and Route Regional 53. The Republicanos need to take Jaloque to support their September offensive. The UN wants to run the presidential vote and protect the local civilian population. La Cara Nova want to prove that they are more than just guerilla bands hiding in the mountains.

Summer in Jaloque is going to be very hot this year.
