Camps and Construction
For decades, the survivors of the Fall hid in the refuse and rubble of the world that was destroyed. Lurking beneath shelters of aluminum siding and scavenged timber, or under the bare trusses of decrepit homes and hovels, the Province inhabitants rarely leave the safety of their communities. Though many enterprising individuals have attempted to research methods of building new fortifications and settlements (whether of a permanent or temporary nature), few have met with any significant success before now.
A collection of innovators have begun visiting existing towns in the Province to share their knowledge, for a price. Though the information they sell is sketchy and makeshift at first, the foundations of their teachings pave the way for greater creations to be researched. Construction trainers have appeared in the towns of Embry Crossroads, Oilville, Sunshine Corners, New Flagstaff, Pass Chris, Dieseltown and Trader's Flat to begin spreading the word and teaching clones how to begin crafting the first bounties of the Construction tradeskill-player-made camps!
Bars and Gambling
In the later days of the GlobalTech enterprise, a number of underground bunkers were built throughout the Province to provide protection for their moderately valuable employees and equipment. Unfortunately, this plan was too little too late and the bunkers went empty and unused for decades until an enterprising group of Bankers and Travelers discovered the access codes. Now, they're being the reopened all over the Province to provide a place for weary survivors to rest and, in those towns where the Travelers have sway, wager a few chips on friendly games of chance and skill.
Since the Fall, computer glitches and leap years have created controversy over the actual date of the New Year. For decades now, people in all areas of the Grand Canyon Province have used different dates, leading to much confusion. Now, the Archivist Coalition, with the help of LifeNet, has finally determined the actual date of the New Year. In the process of their research, the Coalition has also uncovered a great deal of information about various holidays that had been celebrated in the past. In honor of the establishment of the true date, the Coalition is sponsoring "First Night" a festival that combines many of the holidays past.
