Hex Tile/Scavenging Locations Ideas
Post your ideas for special hex squares apart from the usual caravans, cities, forests etc. Here are mine, and I'll edit it when you guys come up with more ideas.Hex SquaresHighway: You go much faster on these with less movement points expended, but so do enemies as well! They usually lead to cities and towns, but there is a highway leading out of the facility. It also gives the world a bit more of a connected feel. If cars are put in, driving on tiles with highways on them would be safer and reduce breakdowns. Mine Field: This appears on fields, highways and very rarely cities. Laid by bandits protecting their turf, the military trying to stop civilians from trying to escape their cities during the early stages of the attack or just survivalists trying to stop the dogmen from getting in. You can tell early via the darker patches on the tiles. If you go on one, you immediately go into an encounter. You would have to use your skills or your life will be in the RNG's hands. Botany (What part of the grass is disturbed), eagle eye (That bit of dirt is dug up!), athletics (Be very fleet of foot or be blown sky-high!)... whatever skill would make sense to be able to get through a mine field.Bandit Camp: Dangerous! Bandits spawn here in large groups, scavenging around and bringing back ammo and weapons. Sneak in here and get their stuff, you get the jackpot. If you get spotted... You won't enjoy what is left of your short life. Smallholding/Commune/Farm/Shanty: Occupied or not, could give a
trading encounter, a chance for normal scavenging, an opportunity for
theft, etc. Of course, one could also get other types of food there.Cave: It's dark in there. There might be grues. Or more edible mushrooms than you can possibly imagine!Abandoned Laboratory: Could provide high tech stuff as salvage, or could make you mutate.Factory: Good place to find tools or a larger amount of metal scrap than normal.Scavenging LocationsGarage: An ordinary garage. This is where cars will probably be found, but for now you can get most tool items here.Supermarket: Hope you packed a plastic bag! Kidding, you'll never find anything here apart from empty bottles and scrap, and some good food items on occasion. Exceedingly common.Sporting Goods Store: Baseball bats, football armor, hunting ammo (But no rifles...). Only problem that it's rare to find good items here, since they are often the first to be looted.Gun Store: Boo-yah! If you need gun, you'll find em here. Incredibly rare, and there is a very good chance they'll be a bandit pointing a gun at you when you go in. However, the pay-off is excellent. Rifles (And other guns if they get made) galore.
