Survivalists (Crafting Alliance)
Located in the northeast part of Fairhaven, in what used to be Chandler Hospital, the Survivalists have tried to keep as far away from the nanite-plagued disaster as they can. Until very recently, entry required killing and scalping dozens and dozens of ferals simply to prove you were trustworthy. The ever-pressing needs of capitalism have forced them to open their doors and at least (publicly) mellow a bit, and they will offer their alliance to any like-minded humans or non-threatening mutants.
The recipes they offer are human solutions for human problems. While they eschew strange and unusual things like bending time and space, or plugging a machine straight into your own heart, they can still apply some old-world know-how (and high explosives) to get the job done.
