Mannahill Region for Gamma Oz
Area has a wide variety of technology on average of WW1 level with high tech artifacts especially artworks as you aproach Broken Hill. The giant dice are crude concrete dice no doubt a ancient holy place where gangs stop to gamble to see if fate will be kind to them. Will detail towns bit by bit but Broken Hill quite huge - might need to upscale to a3 and detail over several posts.

Buildings: post office, train station, police station, wool sheds, Mannahill hotel (1889), weather station, schoolhouse, general store, residence, outlying StationsRuins: several outlaying abandoned stations and mining buildings and mines
Quaint tiny village established as trade route has hung onto life and has a thriving community of law abiding honest country folk who welcome traders. The old railway station is used as a stop for caravans. It is a popular old fashioned village preserving the old ways.

A minimal crossroad for traders but unfortunately lots of gangs camp in the area including mutant cannibals. Anyone without a caravan guard is liable for a rough time.

Many are rubble and roofless but some have had use since the apocalypse
A small village supporting a sizable rural area and former mining trade town of 1800s. It is a bit rougher than Mannahill and occasionally the locals gather to drive out undesirables from the ruins. The old railway station is used as a stop for caravans. The station is quite large and includes ruins and abandoned engineering buildings often squatted by undesirables. Some say there is a bunker complex in the region built by those who thought there were too many in Broken Hill

Deserves a whole post. A once huge mining town then inhabited by art colonies and a famous race where travellers from the whole continent visit. it is pretty weird place. Also known as Silver city. Remains of a huge solar farm provides everyone with free power. Just down the road from Mannahis (really) are some giant concrete dice in stacks, a ancient holy place. As you get closer to broken hill there is more strange monuments. Wiljikali Tribe prosper through secret water holes. Union hall cults wear strange aprons and parate with banners and control the town. Once had a population of 30000 in early 20th century is currently only 3000. Several radio stations and television operate here operate here and broadcast to surrounding regions. Occasionally cane toads cross the desert to attack to silence the plucky town with it's dangerous messages of freedom and workers rights.There is a ruined golf course in pristine condition kept protected by robots. Many cults and religions thrive here. There is a University Campus with crionics labs. A speedway where the road warrior cult maintain a fleet of war machines. A large regional hospital and several schools.
