Escape from Dregs Island
It is six years after President Gray's Prison Reform Act of 2026. Prisons have been shut down across the United States, and all felons must serve life sentences on isolated prison islands where escape is impossible, and rules of civility are obsolete. The prisoners on Dregs Island must rely on sharp intuition to survive, as nobody can be trusted.
Dregs Island has been segregated into four factions after the first prisoners arrived six years ago. The Quay is the northernmost part of the island with the most vegetation and resources. The merciless leader Tobias and the Junk Rats, who are all confessed murderers, reside there behind a chain-link fence. The Compound is a fortified complex where the white-collared criminals live. The Battlefield is where the worst of the worst reside and where the trash of the island is sent. Purgatory is the largest sector where the misfits live in a disorganized village of huts and cabins.
Under fire from the American public, President Gray has acknowledged innocent people may have been banished for life to a prison island – especially with the newly-formed expedited trials. In a show of good faith, President Gray has asked the island to select one prisoner who is most worthy of a release. The prisoners are set to meet in Purgatory for the big vote of who to liberate from the island. Even though the murderous residents of The Quay will be ineligible for release, Tobias has made it mandatory for the Junk Rats to attend the gathering. This indeed will be a problem, as the Junk Rats terrorize the island population. This is where your story begins.
