The story:
Our characters find themselves along the Jet Road in an area known as Skarwood forest during a battle between The Brotherhood and The Chemlords. Located there is the town of Skarwood and Skarwood Castle, the castle is an old armory that has been turned in to a marketplace and is controlled by the free people and merchant’s guild known as the Skarwood commonwealth. The Jet Road is the main route for Chems supplying the Wastelands. The area has become a main hub of manufacturing and distribution of chems. The area outside the town and Skarwood Castle is controlled by the raiders known as the Chemlords. The Chemlords leave the town and castle alone as long as the commonwealth doesn’t interfere with their Chem business. The Brotherhood has moved into the area to help make the region safe and stop the Chemlords manufacturing and distribution of chems and put an end to the jet road.
