The Land Down Under has been ravaged by the Great Cataclysm and madness even more than most places. Worse, it is physically cut off from the rest of the world, which is why it is so different.Humankind survives as Outbackers (low-tech survivalists and scavengers) and the City-Goers (the few who live amongst technological splendor after turning their backs on the rest ofhumanity). Both are hard-hearted, paranoid, & cruel. Both may become the equivalents of the Coalition States Down Under. Rifts Australia is a savage and alien land reshaped by the Coming of the Rifts and the brutality of survival. A land inhabited by strange creatures and forces of magic.
