Franklin's Riders are one of the few neutral factions and make their home in The Repository. Their name is derived from the first Postmaster General of the old United States, Benjamin Franklin (NOT from the biker group of the same name). The Riders are set up similarly to the Old West Pony Express, in that one rider carries a message or package from one station to the next, and a fresh rider carries it onward from that point, saving excessive fatigue on both rider and animal.
Characters can operate with the Riders, and can gain costume pieces that mark them as such, such as the Riders' hat and jacket, even if they are in one of the 6 primary factions. The model for these pieces are strongly influenced by the film The Postman.
