Post-Ruputre, The Oakland area quickly slid into total chaos with zero centralized government. That power vacuum was quickly filled by several unaffiliated Pre-Rupture street gangs and criminal groups. The breakdown of government allowed these groups to transform themselves from small-time gangsters into local warlords.

Originally very disorganized and therefore a minimal threat to nearby settlements, many of the previously squabbling groups have recently begun to merge into a few larger factions that are steadily gaining manpower and resources by subjugating smaller groups and raiding the neighboring areas.
