Runners are the cheapest vehicles in Anarc. The final descendents of conventional land vehicles, Runners are wheeled or treaded machines that use rotational motion to propel themselves across the ground. They usually have three or more wheel or tread units, arranged in a three dimensional setup to allow for cave maneuvering and evasion. Some also feature jump jets for situations where especially rapid movement is required. They are powered by anything from internal combustion to nuclear fission, and more modern revisions can even harbor Essence pods. Runners are cheap and effective, and can carry the same range of weaponry and equipment available to Aerospacecraft and Synths, as well as possess a more armored, durable frame. Their low speed and maneuverability, however, make them only common among militia, mercenary, and private industries investing in strength in numbers over individual capability. Especially large runners are lovingly distinguished as Crawlers instead.
