Core Book

Human civilization may have collapsed, but the world hasn’t ended equally for all. Some lead and others follow - now as in the Old Age. You lead. Through intrigue, manipulation, and naked violence you have convinced a gang of mutants to follow you as their leader. That doesn’t mean your life is simple – there is always another Boss who wants to break you or some underling who wants to take your place.
