One of the new Encounter Groups in 4th edition is the “Cave Rats” or “Tunnel Rats”; these are the descendants of people who found or built underground shelter before the Wars and Asteroid strikes. They don’t have a very high technology (early 20th Century) but trade in “recycled technology, information, iron ore”. This article is an attempt to add a little more detail and suggest how a PD might incorporate them into a campaign.
The “Delphi Diner” is a relic from an earlier time – when America was mobile and the roads were safe. It is close to the Cave Rat community and is linked by power and phone lines. Warning: Following the pylons back to “Home” is discouraged. There are traps and even a few landmines on the route.
