After the End Fanfork Wiki

Motowner is a culture of people in After the End. Motowner is part of the Laurentian culture group.


The Motowner culture was conceived out of the urban sprawl of the great post-American chaos of the former Midwest. While most of the Rust-lands are inhabited by the Rostmenn, the great broken cities of Detroit and Cleveland are home to the Motowners. Gary is the smallest of the Motowner cities. Several Motowner-led realms, notably the High Chief of the Burning River and the Republic of Detroit, are predominantly Rostmann but have, affixed upon them, a ruling, Motowner elite that is greatly outnumbered by the peasantry. Effectively the only territory populated by Motowners are the capital cities themselves.

Most Motowners generally follow the 'Rust Cultist' faith, a religion centered around the ritualization and worship of old world machinery, architecture, and so on.
