Civilization V Customisation Wiki

The Fiends led by Motor-Runner are a custom civilization by RawSasquatch, with contributions from JFD, Zharques, and Arilasqueto.

This mod requires Brave New World.


The Fiends[]

The Fiends are a raider gang located in Vault 3 in the New Vegas area, comprised entirely of bloodthirsty chem addicts, also known as chem fiends, giving them their name. Their leader is Motor-Runner, who is considered the sanest of them all.


Motor-Runner was the leader of the Fiends, the sanest member of the group, and ultimately the best organizing force that the drug-addicted group possessed. It was under his leadership that the Fiends took Vault 3 to, in Motor-Runner's own words, "put down roots somewhere", chiefly to stop his people from wandering into hostile territory. He had two dogs, BoneGnash and GhashBone.

Dawn of Man[]

"The wastes are yours for the taking, Motor-Runner, boss of the Fiends! With a slightly more level head on your shoulders than most of your fellow drugged-up Fiends, you naturally fell into a leadership role, and took up the cause of putting your peoples' roots down somewhere, so that they would wander no more. You found Vault 3, an expansive underground home ripe for the taking, and prepared an assault to seize it. You were surprised, however, when the residents just let you in without a fight -- though you, of course, killed them all anyways. With Vault 3 secured, it and the South Vegas Ruins around it became the core of Fiend territory, a massive, growing thorn in the side of the NCR and the Strip, and a no-mans' land for all except your people and their allies in the Khans.

Boss Motor-Runner, the Fiends need your guidance once again in these hostile wastes. A strong hand to keep them organized, and to build them into a true force to be reckoned with. Can you wrangle your fierce people, and secure them a homeland? Will you crush your 'civilized' rivals under an iron fist, and watch the world burn? Can you build a "civilization" to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Oh hey. Are you here to sell chems? If not, then get the fuck out. I'm a busy man."

Defeat: "Where the fuck are my guards? Guess it's down to me, and the dogs, too... Dinnertime, boys!"
