[Hellhole Number 3] Wasteland Ravagers (Part 1)

Wasteland Ravager (Warrior)

Most Ravagers are just a little off kilter, raging their way through the wasteland and the fringes, attacking anything or anyone they see as easy prey.  They arm themselves with easily built and maintained weapons  and body armor.  But don't mistake their simplicity for stupidity -- the can be quite cunning and adaptable. And don't let the low Smarts score fool you, either. It simply reflects the fact that most Ravager Warriors are in a near constant state of confusion and distraction due to stress induced paranoia, fatigue, and mental instability.  Indeed, most Ravagers are a curious blend of the inbred, the mentally ill, addicts, and indoctrinated man-children that tend to lash out when pressed into fight-or-flight scenarios.  But they also are canny and smart enough to prize useful and well developed skills.  In short, they are not mindless, and can recognize value (and danger) when they see it.  They are pragmatists who have learned that they don't fit well in "civilized" society, but know the world is a dangerous place and so have banded together for a better chance at survival. Rarely alone, they tend to travel in packs of anywhere from 6-12 individuals, with many more in their enclaves and oft-times roving communities.

Ravager Assault Buggy

A light, armored, and structurally reinforced vehicle that is little more than a large dune buggy covered in bolted on plates of armor.  The front of the vehicle has two seats, with a third seat in the rear.  Armor is heavier toward the front of the buggy, and metal spikes are sometimes mounted to do additional damage when ramming.  The back is comparably less armored and often is partially open.  The buggy's structure also is configured with mounting rails on the rear top of the vehicle (above the rear seat) facing both front and back so a weapon can be mounted to fire at either forward or rear 180 degree arcs.
