The Spans is a gang consisting mostly of orks. It's a thrill gang, whose territory is on the Williamette River shoreline. It's territory overlaps with that of the Shooters and therefore have a relationship that switches back and forth between conflict and truce.
The gang is into smuggling, robbery, and muscling in on those who are to close to their territory. It also earns by hiring themselves out as muscle. They have connections to the Cascade Orks and are allied to the elven Amerindian urban primitive theme gang called the Dog Soldiers. Members are augmented (muscle replacement) and well equipped (with assault rifles and armor vests).
