Sewers of the Ancient ones

Many surface signs of civilization are but ash and buried under sand, or newer settlements. But drains, underground tunnels and public shelters survived intact to some degree.

These could be used in a gamma apocalypse game, space archeologists (drains of the space gods), superheroes searching an abandoned base or gonzo DnD party in crashed UFO or city of the star people who vanished in a flash a million years ago. Id roll one encounter first for main inhabitant or factions first.
