Traders in Broken Hill Ruins

These are the top fortified locations in the urban ruins

1 Scrap Town - weekly folk gather to trade scrap on the edge of the ruins most bring able guards and all cooperate on defence. No one is in charge and the site is a well trafficked dirt patch with some trails when not in use. 
Piles of useless remains of chem batteries, tires and bones from past markets remain. Animals often pick at the site after people leave. When active all kinds of tribes and creatures meet to swap scrap pulled from the rubble and other sometimes better things. Most traders specialise and swap with other traders and prospectors.
