The NEMA forces that remain are joined by the Nebraska National Guard, but they are all overwhelmed and stretched thin. Still they stand strong against magical and monstrous forces that seem like something out of nightmare or summer disaster movie. In a matter of a few weeks, Nebraska becomes a land of chaos and lawlessness, except at a few cities like Omuha and Lincoln, and a few military bases like Offutt that have become refugee centers for the homeless, injured and frightened. Elsewhere, there are already gangs who take from the weak and fight to claim turf and resources in what will become known as the Great Cataclysm. A few already established extremist organizations and criminal gangs armed with weapons and/or survivalist knowledge work to carve out their own little kingdoms. - </span>Dan Frederick & Megan Timperle (Additional ideas and writing by Kevin Siembieda)
Model Type: AXO-USA-022
Class: Agricultural/Farm Labor Exoskeleton/Power Armor.
Crew: One pilot.
The Reaper is an older designed KLS corporation model of power armor originally designed a decade ago for husbandry and farm labor. Until the Coming of the Rifts, it has been used exclusively for agricultural, horticultural, farm and raising livestock operations. Ideal for lifting, carrying, processing crops and cutting down hay and other crops. Hence the scythes and the post Cataclysm renaming of it as the Grim Reaper or just Reaper... - </span>Dan Frederick & Megan Timperle (Additional ideas and writing by Kevin Siembieda)
So it's a civvy mech suit, made for clearing land and processing crops. Drills, vibro-blades & extra limbs and here the goal was to draw something that looked useful, but without a functional look as opposed to an aesthetic based on intimidation. A helmet that looks slapped together out of requisite parts, "treaded" feet to imitate the tires of a tractor, etc. Not bad for what was a bit of a rush job!
