Welcome to scenic Pitford: Gateway to
the Ruins! This is your last stop before
undertaking a dig in the nearby Great
Ruins. Why not enjoy some of the fine
services offered in this enclosed town?
There are brothels, bars, massage
parlors, shops, a casino and even a
gladiatorial arena, all here for your
delight. After all, this may be your
last night in this twisted world, why
not make it one to remember?
Pitford is like a great immobile tank,
stuck on the battle scarred, hostile
plains in the shadow of the Great Ruins.
This scrap metal enclosure is more than
a home base for excavators; it is a
dynamic adventure site, where
opportunity, riches, espionage, crime,
and debauchery await. Herein, game
sessions are as challenging and deadly
as anything found outside of its junk
and concrete shell.
The fortress-town stands as
a frontier bastion for a hard pressed
humanity, providing a retreat from the
harsh sand storms and flesh eating
mutated beasts of the wilds. With one
road leading in at the south and another
at the north, it is stopping place for
travelers, outlaws, savages, scavs,
runaways and most of all, excavators.
For over eighty years this fort has
served as a base camp for dig teams who
loot the boundless ruinscape beyond,
where the lucky make it back alive with
artifacts of enormous wealth and power.
This book is both a game master
reference resource, as well as a guide
for players whose characters are
bustling, old west style boom town.
Included are 56 shops and businesses, 33
streets and alleys, access points to the
topside roof, and stairwells to the
notorious basement level. In addition,
fortress defenses, gatehouses, and town
watch details are included, along with a
robust section on the municipal jail
with encounters for those incarcerated
within. Also included are series of
adventure hooks, appendices, map
collections, the governing Association
of Business Owners and the Freehold
Situated in the north east
corner of the Crossroads Region, Pitford
figures heavily in upcoming adventures
published for The Mutant Epoch
role-playing game. While having this
book isnít necessary, it would enhance
game play and provide details on
resources adventurers need to recover,
resupply, and recruit new excavators.
