It is more than 150 years since the biological and nuclear apocalypse that ravaged Earth. The catastrophic failure of the artificial intelligence intended to ensure mankind's future brought civilization to its knees. Mutated plants, animals, and humans rub shoulders with embittered survivors, mercenaries, anarchists, bigoted True Humans, and cults dedicated to the surviving AIs, and all must carve out their place in this brutal landscape, or else perish as billions before them.
Scrappers is a miniatures skirmish game, a struggle for survival and dominance as players strive to acquire advanced technology from before the collapse of civilization. Players represent a faction--one of a number of rival ideologies and alliances seeking to impose their will on the wastelands--and recruit a Scrapper Crew to send out into the ruins of the Deformed Earth to acquire supplies, salvage, and ancient tech that will bring their faction more power and influence.
