Welcome to Jellybean’s Junkyard Cafe
JELLYBEAN’S JUNKYARD CAFE sits dead centre in Junkyard #9; one of thirty junkyards surrounding Junction Springs. Everyone who visits the seedy junkyards in the outpost of Junction Springs is hunting for something. If they are hunting for something dangerous or illegal, they go to Jellybean’s junkyard first. If they are hunting for a good piece of pie, they go to the Junkyard Cafe. If they are hunting for trouble they don’t have to go anywhere. Trouble will find them in Junction Springs.
Tonight, at Jellybean’s Cafe, is the 10th Annual BATTLE OF THE HANDS; a high stakes battle tournament put on by THE EVIL SPROCKET CORPORATION. Participants, willing and unwilling, come from far and wide to face off against each other, in three rounds of battle until someone wins. That person gets a lucrative, mandatory, one-year contract … and then they vanish. No one wants to win … but third place is pretty good.
Members of the Resistance are also lurking around Junkyard #9. They are launching a Rebellion to take over SPROCKET HQ and overthrow the Evil Corporation. The Rebellion begins tonight.
