CAUTION: Spoilers AHOY!
The Bend is a sizeable city that lies between desert and more desert. It is the last stop before the land is virtually unlivable, and if it weren’t crawling with cultists, organized crime, and cannibals, it might be a nice place to visit. The people who live there do so because they need somewhere to live, and many are the survivors of an catastrophe in the neighboring (and we use that term loosely here) city.
Crew of the Capricorn
A varied assortment of interesting people who apparently hate each other but deep down are just glad to not be accountants. Captained by Eliza, these misfits go on wacky adventures, only to learn that the real treasure is the moments they share together. No. Not really. The real treasure is in a 20-ft hole on some island somewhere.
Ebbordians: Members of a brainwashing cult that seek to increase their numbers, comprised of otherwise sane folks under the influence of Amethyst, who is misguided through the efforts of the cult leader, Bryson. Bryson’s most faithful leaders are, nonetheless, crooks and thieves who are in it for the same reason that he is: you can make a lot of money off of religion. However, he does not know this and continues on, thinking that he pulls the strings.
Hyenas: The last of the indigenous people of the valley now known as The Bend, these apparently happy cannibals only want one thing: what’s rightfully theirs. Began with the two only real surviving members of the tribe, Shad and Levla, they soon acquired members of a similar mind to help them defend their home.
