A strange artifact was discovered in a coal mine near the small Reaver town of Crows Landing. By some of the more superstitious folk, the artifact is referred to as The Black Cathedral; others simply call it the Mother Load. Some say it fell from the sky, some say its ancient magic, others think it to be something far more sinister. Its discovery paved the way for countless technological advances. Its technology was harnessed to provide autonomy for the tin, ghoulish mechanical creatures, better known as Contraptions. Some Contraptions serve their makers by protecting and working the land while others terrorize the town folk.
Known as the Black Cardinals, the Reavers who discovered the artifact were corrupted by its influence and became mad with its power. After harvesting Shards from it they fled to the outskirts and wastelands. The constant exposure to the artifact gnarled the Black Cardinals’ appearances and began to change them and the land surrounding the Shards. The plant life began to alter, and the desert became crueler. Chaos littered the land as its influence grew, driving the creatures mad and possessing people; granting abilities that rivaled those of the stories told by natives. The spread of the artifact's influence is known as The Great Blight and the land it corrupts; **The Neverlands. Some praise its power and began worshiping in the towns of Ravens Fall, Burro's Bounty, and Junker's Watch.
It’s the peak of the Gold Rush and strangers from all over are hunting for those Gold Nuggets of freedom, while others come in search of the fabled Mother Load or The Black Cathedral. You’ve awoken from a long bender and have no idea where you are or what you’re in for. Maybe you make your way to Crows Landing. Or maybe you end up striking it rich... Recruit some Goons to watch your back. Steal some loot. Grab some cash and hightail it out of town before sundown. If that isn’t the life for you, maybe you'd rather be a Peace Keeper or Law Dawg; ridding the Neverlands of the terrible things destroying it. Regardless of your choice, your journey is sure to be long and tiresome.
