Forward Base was a government station in a parallel high meggas version of France, located about 3,000 moves from Larry Linsay's Earth. About 50 people had worked at the station.

Forward Base's water supply was poisoned by Anna Shea. Everybody there was killed apart from Joshua Valienté.[1]


Forward Base was on piles. It was surrounded by lush countryside and overlooked a parallel version of the Rhône.

The base was located near a small spring, and possessed a herd of goats.[1]
