  • Japan

    Most of what used to be urban Japan is still essentially uninhabitable, in spite of the efforts of clean-up crews. The more rural parts of Japan are safer for the average citizen than most areas due to the relatively isolated nature of the islands. The …

  • United States

    The good old U.S. of A. These days it's like a cross between the Wild West and Ancient Greece... with lasers, cyborgs, mutants, and magic. The actual secure [[enclaves]] of civilization are few and far between. Most of the country is dotted with small …

  • Saint Paul

    Saint Paul is a relatively small Enclave occupying the Western half of the old city of St Paul, Minnesota. It was able to survive in spite of its size, partly thanks to the river on its South bank which grew during the cataclysm. They're also …

  • Trenton

  • Western Europe

    After the fall of civilization, most of the areas in Western Europe took on a medieval aesthetic. Whether this was because of its deep rooted traditions and long history or the result of meddling is hotly debated by the few sociologists that still live in …

  • Almanac

    The world's current fractured landscape can be difficult to pin down. Place names in some areas change with every generation and borders are only as secure as the people (or [[creatures]]) guarding them. The following lists are far from complete, but …

  • Milwaukee

    Milwaukee is a destroyed city populated exclusively by raiders. It is directly along the main trade route between [[Hibing]] and [[Trenton]]. Given that [[Hibing]] is the only place that produces [[Liviol]] wood, the caravans come regularly in spite of …

  • Eau Claire

    Eau Claire is a small farming town less than a day's drive East of [[Saint Paul]]. They are not very built up and their primary defense against raiders is not having anything worth stealing. Nearly all of the homes in Eau Claire have a small ground …

  • Lance Inn

    Less of a town and more of a single building, the Lance Inn was built out of the shell of an office building in what was Downtown Lancing. The Inn was started by a caravan owner named Enoch Buck when he was ready to settle down and give up the road. …

  • Switzerland

    The Swiss Alps and the Jura Mountains together are the tallest mountain range in the world. They form an unbroken wall around the main Swiss Plateau. The exterior faces of the mountains are extremely steep, although the interior faces are much more …

  • Italy

    The Italian Peninsula today is politically similar to itself during the renaissance. The main cities are fully independent while the countryside is so overrun with monsters that the safest way to travel is by boat. Because of the dangers outside of their …

  • Australia

    Because of an old internet meme in which the world nuked itself into oblivion while Australia looked on in bafflement, a group of poorly informed spiteful idiots made sure that Australia was on the receiving end of a fair share of nuclear warheads. As it …

  • Woking

    Located in [[Britain | England]], Woking used to be part of London's "commuter belt." Today, it is the closest unmodified humans can live to the [[Heart of London]] without risking mutation. It has become much more of a burgeoning metropolis than it ever …

  • London

    Still officially the capitol of [[Britain | England]], London has become a forbidding place. All who live there mutate rapidly into strange new forms. Visitors either leave vowing never to return or remain forever. London is engulfed in perpetual soupy …
