The denizens of the wasteland speak of a powerful witch who dwells among the ruins.
She is called Petra, The Priestess of the dead.
It is said she has unlocked the secret ways of the Ancients, and can bring the dead back to life.
She does her unnatural works in a giant fortress called The Arkham Resurrectorium:


She is guarded by hundreds of followers, many of which she has created herself.
They are referred to as The Necromatons.

The woman seems like a fan of cybernetics in more ways than one, but everything is natural. I am not in any position to talk and she seems more interested in her computers than noticing I am awake.

Without turing to look at you she says.
"Oh, I know you're awake, Outlander.
What I can't understand is why the powers that be would wan't to save you.
What are you doing? What is your plan? You must tell me...
...Resurrection is a tricky thing, you wouldn't want me to make a mistake and lose you."

"I'm passing through not to mention I know all this tech its amazingly well kept given the rest of this planet. There are certain factions here that have illegally claimed 'goods' in their procession. It would be very beneficial to many, so many in fact that they are better off not knowing the potential danger they are in."

Petra is sweating in the desert night.
Remember she's a big gal in a lot of tight clothes and you came in after her regular hours.
She turns a knob and pulls a lever and suddenly you can feel your legs again.
And they actually feel stronger than before.
She leans over your face, a drop of her sweat drips onto you nose.
"So you're telling me some of our own kind are going to sell us out to the greater galaxy?
Are you here to stop them or help them?"

I would say yes they are the entire planet has some amazing biotech and if every single faction here dies superstitiously over night collecting the goods will be easy. I am here to stop them on behalf of a larger entity. They its counter productive kill potential customers much less have someone else do so with your product. I can repay your kindness for putting me back together with a few upgrades to your current laboratory.

Petra shakes her head.
"You're going to have to speak in proper sentences and use punctuation, I don't want to have to
decipher this gibberish!"

'and if every single faction here dies superstitiously over night'

"How does one die superstitiously?"

'They its counter productive kill potential customers'

"How the fuck do they "its" anything?"

There is a WMD in the hands of a waste lander group. They will follow its orders thinking it won't kill them, but that is a false reprieve. The weapon won't discriminate when it starts killing.

"What is this weapon?
Some kind of AI?
If I heal you, you must take me to it!"
