The western governments and their great economies had collapsed, the rule of law had broken, anarchy was pandemic and kill-or-be-killed became the only way to survive.

Now the survivors of a shattered and volatile world have learned to organise themselves, to rebuild from what they could salvage and to cooperate for the good of the many.

But a chain of events has been set in motion that threatens to send the town into freefall, to destroy its economy and to turn the cooperative struggle for improvement into a vicious battle for survival.
