Early in the 22nd Century, war broke out between superpowers. For years, a
combination of governments, fanatic organizations, and corporate entities began to vie for control as the power structure broke down into complete chaos. Now there’s no known record of who released the first explosion; it could have been a fascist dictator, a terror cell, or some maniacal CEO,
but at this point it really doesn’t matter. All we know is nuclear weapons, from B61s to dirty bombs, were deployed. This left behind large areas of deadly radiation called the Burnt, most of which still lingers today. It only took a few weeks for nearly the entire global nuclear arsenal to be released. That was a few decades ago.
Over time, the wars just kind of died down. Now, small pockets of manageable radiation allowed survivors to gather, setting up conclaves of humanity. They needed supplies and equipment in order to survive though.
Luckily, there were still resources outside of these Null Zones that were useful, and commodities that needed to be traded between communities. Someone needed to go into danger so everyone else could survive. This is where Runners come in.
