Welcome to the New Earth Ostracon: The Wiki for NEO ScavengerEdit
Making your first journey into the game? This wiki can be your best reference in the early-going. Please be advised, though, that our editors are currently checking every page for accuracy and completeness. Since the official launch of version 1.0 on December 15, 2014, there is much here that is based on prior (beta) versions of the game, which needs to be updated. We appreciate your understanding during this busy time.
As a result, we need people who can contribute to continue to make this wiki the definitive resource for the game that is NEO Scavenger! Play the game; enjoy it; bring your knowledge to the wiki! There are also wikis in German, Russian, Czech, and Chinese; all in need of contributors. They can be found through the language links at the bottom of the page.
We do request that editors register and please sign-in when editing. It will help everyone here get to know the contributors, and help foster the positive social and creative atmosphere that makes a wiki great! Just be sure to observe common-sense wiki practices, such as not adding everything to this homepage, and searching for a page before adding a new one (using the search bar above any wiki page) to prevent redundancies.
A note about spoilers: Edit

Most of them will be marked with either a blue banner at the top of the page, or will be concealed inside spoiler buttons (requiring a click to reveal.) There are some presently unmarked spoilers, due to the vast number of contributors to the wiki. Editors are in the process of marking these as they are found during the current updates taking place.

The GameEditNEO Scavenger is a turn-based, post-apocalyptic wasteland survival game with role-playing and supernatural elements. A free demo as well as the current version can be found at the developer website, on Desura, or on Steam.
The game consists of a hex map with turn-based movement and combat/encounter system. The choose-your-own-adventure style menu brings the player's skills and items into play, resulting in multiple possible outcomes for every encounter. Scavenging for loot while keeping your character fed, hydrated and warm is often quite a task in itself. Recipes for new items can be discovered in game or by using a no-penalty system of combinations. Characters are based on the abilities and flaws selected at the start of the game. These abilities can be used in encounters or even in item crafting. The learning curve for the game is steep, but many players find it enjoyable.
- NEO Scavenger has a manual! It's basically a compilation of wiki pages about game mechanics, so wiki readers won't find anything new in there, but it's a good source for all new players, since it has all information about gameplay in one place and doesn't contain any spoilers. — February 25, 2014
