I don't think this is listed anywhere in CE, or Rifts, but what does everyone think the OCC breakdown of NEMA as a whole, or specifically the breakdown of the sleeping army would be? Half PA/Robot pilots, or are they more like 1/20?

Thanks for feedback and opinions.

I believe the NEMA sleeping army is only mentioned in the Rifts FoM revised book. Thus that is the book to look in.

If I am incorrect about this being the only place then that somewho knows should post too.

The best I recall it just give a vague size for the army in SB1r. What I'm looking for is opinions on OCC breakdowns. I posted here instead of in Rifts because these are NEMA OCCS I'm talking about. I'm looking for opinions on how many GBs to Silver Eagles to firefighters and so on.

SB1r didn't really specify, and the CE books don;t really give many guides. though IRIC SB1r does indicate the forces that gathered in that region was short on military types.. Pg117. only a third of the 32,000 troops that went to the maryland NEMA-HQ were military or law enforcement.

so i'd assume that no more than about 5-8% of the total would be robot and PA pilots of any kind, with the vast majority of the military level force (22-25%) being infantry or police types.
presumably most of the rest were logistical, maintenance, disaster relief, firefighters, etc.

Thanks. When I get a chance I will pull out the SB and reread all the fluff.

The breaking the wall of Chi-town could also be Archie talking up the story to Hagan.
