Sub-Theme and Role Play Information
A great highway overpass goes right over the Junkyard from the Wastelands and to the east. The Junkyard is a tad more industrial than The Wastelands sim but along the same sub-theme, more structures are built from junk salvaged from The Junkyard itself.
As the settlement expanded out a large industrial area to the east began to fill with scavengers looking for treasures. It was hotly contested by warring factions amongst the new settlers for a time. Centered around the Scrap Yard in the center of the neighborhood, junkyard was a sprawl of ruined factories small abandoned homes and huge piles of slag and rubbish. Occasionally a treasure is still hauled out of the refuse but largely its been picked over for the true gems. The scrapyard is the home of the Heapkeeper who, aptly named, keeps tallies and tabs on the settlements resources supplies and available salvage for Neo, as well as a large supply of raw material in the scrapheap central to the junkyard.
