Ferals are the tribes and gangs that grew from the humans who were already prepared for the apocalypse that toot started.
As the ferals gained control of the countryside increasingly the small towns became isolated and vulnerable. Raids and attacks caused toot constant concern and problems.
Some towns were too important to be undefended and toot concentrated its defences in these towns, making them fortresses. But other towns were surplus and toot took the decision to abandon them and concentrate its resources where required. The towns would be re-occupied when the ferals and resistance had been crushed.
The ferals didn’t occupy them as they didn’t trust that toot wouldn’t return and in any event they made occupying the towns would make the ferals an easy target.
The abandoned towns were soon overgrown.
Feral recon forces would occasionally swing through the town and take photos to ensure the town remained unoccupied by toot.
