Apologies for the misleading title, but this is more of a fan canon construct of how things in DC were to cause things to seem like they were ten minutes after the bombs dropped. As a Fallout PnP game master, I use DC as a setting to get my vices out on what I hate about the game. For example towns are about twelve sizes larger, a little more far apart, and a little less isolated. One of the major flavours I add in is the fact that DC is the Capitol territory for all raiders of different clans and tribes gather in a Pirates of the Caribbean 3 way of sorting out territorial disputes. I use that to explain away the massive number of raider encounters for such a small area. This obviously means towns can be under certain "gangs" protection for extorting supplies and goods. So does anyone else enjoy this outlook? I can go on with other factions and territories, if you'd like? Feel free to chip in your two cents as well.
