Tribes of the Megastructure

Examples of the savage tribes that occupies the Megastructure:

Followers of the Core – band living in the complex of endless corridors in the northern part of the Megastructure. They worship as god one of the AIs, named Core 217. Some rumors says that Followers capture travelers and members of other tribes and sacrifice them to their god. Some other people says that numerous clan elders were “possessed” by the Core and now bear strange and sinister powers.

Rebuilders – nomadic clan that believes that Builders are servants of evil gods, sent to the Megastructure to prepare it for the arrival of the Seven Dark Lords. Tribe members follows Builders in their endless journey through the Megastructure and “seal” their creations by mystical sigils, totems and paintings. In some cases they just destroys new rooms, corridors or installations, freshly created by Builders. Tribe is at constant war with Black Crab Children.

Warriors of the Steel Caverns – once proud and strong tribe, now decimated by Ho-ru expedition. Some of their elders (or even tribal chiefs) may be descendants of the long-gone masters of the Megastructure, as they know the secrets of the old machinery, teleporters and hidden passages. Some of them carry strange and very powerful weapons of unknown origin. Some believes that that tribe is degenerated descendants of expedition of off-worlders.

Black Crab Children – tribe that worships one of the biggest (and most insane) Builders of the Megastructure – the dreadful Black Crab. They are cannibalistic savages, hunting mercilessly every other living being. Some of them are augmented by its god’s creations – electric circuitry, hydraulic muscle replacements or armor plates. Those “gifted” by a Black Crab are treated with respect and fear by other members of the Tribe, mostly because of their power, agility, ability to kill and utter madness.

Brotherhood of Yarrrhh’l – they are more a band of retarded and mutated clones than a typical tribe, but they generally fits in this category because they are one of the most primitive occupants of the Megastructure. With a twisted bodies and almost “blank” minds they wander through the Megastructure, sometimes attacking everything on their way, sometimes fleeing before even smallest group of adventurers. Most of them are unable even to speak, but some believes that they all are mind-linked and can communicate with each other Brother with some kind of ESP. Its rumored that they are all just drones of their ‘mother” or “breeding facility”.
