For this party the characters are from the district of Las Chumberas in urban centre of San Cristobal de la Laguna on the very north eastern tip of Tenerife.
A community of 50 odd souls with only 3 with memories from befall the fall it has a lack of understanding of pre-fall society and technical sophistication.
However the community does have a strong curiosity for pre-fall stuff so horde books and data on pre-fall stuff especially technical stuff even though they don’t fully understand it.
The community’s relative youthfulness mean it is very good scavenging, fit, healthy and sneaky. They Skilled boatmen and fishermen using canoes & zodiacs with outboard motors they portage to the coast using their bicycles and tricycles. They live inland to avoid coastal raiders. However a recent change in the coastal communities has blocked their access to the sea.
They want the relics of a pre-fall civilisation but are progressive and want to bike back better.
Despite a lack of technical understanding the community is quite good as basic crafts and coaxing old engines into life – mechanics etc;
They’ve looted weapons and armour from the Decathlon store sports equipment and medicine from the hospital.
The player characters are from a faction called the Mariners who were working on a ferry Volcana de Tinemar in docks till Milena Rosucci took over the coastal tribes and blocked their access to the sea.
Community not in a defensive position so pretty smart to have lasted this long. Maybe more over to the shopping centre. First objective is to secure access to the sea and or find another island. Using mechanical island ? Looking to for a Big ship to take over and (ferry centre) either a safe island or a floating community. They have bicycles! (rivalry with the skater kids)

San Cristobal Super League
a small community of 20 or so atheists based in the Iglesia de la Concepción or as the call it the Tower of Justice and Hall of Friendship. They take moral inspiration and framework from silver age comic books at a nearby comic shop they looted. As such they tend to be hectoring moral purists with a nice line in capes tending to talk in capital letters and unfriendly with the nato cannibals or skater dudes.
The Coastal Consulate
