Mapvember2018 02 Gimme Shelter

Today’s map is based on the concept “Gimmie Shelter.” It’s  apparently a song title, but I haven’t gone to the effort to listen to any of these yet. But the word shelter kept coming back to me, so i decided to do something kind of Fallout-ish. I don’t play Fallout, but I know the general concept and if I had to run a one shot, I’d do something like this:

  1. Party wakes up in the Cryochambers, a lot of fellow shelter-ites are dead and decayed. Its been a long time. There is an elevator shaft between the rooms. The doors are loose. The elevator is stuck 2 floors up, but the door to the North side of the shaft on the next floor is open.
  2. This leads to an armory, with some post-apocalyptic weapons. Should get something to pry the elevator doors on the other side.
  3. The offices on this side tell of the history, but also some of the insidiousness. I guess. I don’t play the games. But connecting some loose wires will have the elevator lurch down 2 floors, so its no longer blocking the shaft. You can climb all the way up to the top now, except that door is sealed and needs some security code to open.
  4. The 3rd floor (1st basement?) has weird glowy trees and a pool of water. there is some mutant beast to fight and you get the door code card from beating it.
  5. The top floor has stark bunker and a really big door that leads out to the unknown.

I have no intention of running a Fallout game. Never interested me. But that’s what I’d do.
