d100 Janitor Store Room & Locker content table guest starring Chad

So my Planet Psychon party have been playing ASE anomalous subsurface environment for 7 weeks now and finally went into mega dungeon.

Mostly they have killed one wizard, lots of morlock and motkar lairs, have occupied two towers and a med station, rented several town houses and three brothels, sold lots of slaves, built guilds, gone to parties and other stuff. They keep looking at outdoor maps and getting exited by ruins and wizard towers and mystery locations.

So finally went into megadungeon quite tougher than they ought to be and went through about 1 third of Lv1. On one hand they went further without running off to re spell and heal and sell slaves than they did in years. First three rooms they considered going home with screechmen in sacks to work in arty brothel and collecting some interesting tech garbage.

Their ACs are pretty damn good and they just got a bunch of 24hr powers so hopefully they will stay longer. Most challenging time was invisible eldren trapped with morlock shamen and crickets while party morlock fighter was busy evaluating the shamens concubines. The freaked out about empty janitor cupboards and asked if i could do a d100 janitor closet supplies to spice things up

Island of purple putrescence will be interesting with lot

ive been recommended to try dnd5 to get more players again

LOTFP only "modern" rule set that interests me really

Swapping goblins with halflings is more and more appealing in my game

Janitor Stuff
My players in ASE kept freaking out about the empty store rooms feeling like janitor rooms and I realized janitors cover a pretty huge range of possible modern and near futuristic play so I joked about doing a table. Chad on my post about it started off a list of twenty which was the germ of this. Now im thinking of a secret society of janitors and their dungeons. Janitor quest? A dungeon janitor class who at 9th level gets a creepy boiler room and can invade your dreams?

Most are locked

Small locker has one common object (odd might be 50% or 1in6 in looted areas)
large locker has d3 common objects and a d4-1 from janitor supply table
Store cupboard has d4 items from janitor supply table
Store room has d3 common and d6 items from janitor supply table
Janitor station - central; supply and meeting area has a d3 store rooms and 2d6 lockers

d12 common locker items

9 Phone, camera or electronic game
10 Longlife snack 1=softdrink 2=gum 3=doughnut 4=chips
11 Uniform or a set of casual clothes

d100 Magical Farm Animals

In Petty Gods I did a Entry for Nanny Binx, my sentient RQ goat ex wizard familiar that followed the party around turning farm animals into sentient talking beasts then inducting them into a earth goddess cult to give the Earth more Power points vs her battle with the Cosmic Cancer. Of course Nanny taught them to expose human chaos cultists who were always sacrificing farm animals. Anyway Nanny was a sorcerer and atheist but thought that certain gods needed more manna to maintain the universe. It helped make up for damage other players did to the multiverse.

Not every farm animal is as amazing as Nanny Binx but these are the runners up. Also some tables for odd farm animals.

Farm Crawls are a riot. Send low level adventurers to farm of attacking farm animals. Zombie or mind controlled animals like dnd cows, goats, sheep, farm dogs, geese and other animals will earn respect,

11 Thanatos - the destroyer always trying to kill all on mars
12 Eros - god of love who battles his brother constantly and help life be fecund

Gods of mars are mostly not nice and not welcome on Psychon. Even the space gods dont like martian gods. Martian gods try to hack systems of other gods and introduce martial life on Psychon. Gods are jealous and don't want more gods fighting for influence or godnet system control. Mars and Psychon gods send agents to visit each other.

Psychon VS Mars!

Thinking of writing a short psychon story a week. Write lots, edit discard 90% and compile left overs. When the apocalypse hit old earth and terraforming, bioforging and mindhacking technology was weaponised in the final war, mars was cut off and isolationist from Psychon (and othersplanets?) it has it's own mysteries, space gods, and ruins. Its own local non consensual rewriting of it,s pseudo history

Mars is semi terraformed with a modified core, breathable to modified humanoids. Visitors need breather masks, drugs or chew oxygum. Gravity is less and people can jump double and lift double. Most NPC peasant martians have 3d4 strength. Movement rates are increased by 50%

Forests of giant lichen, fungus, red weed, triffids are about 18% of the surface (on average). Cacti deserts, grasslands and swamps surrounding the colonists ancient canal system are about another 30%. Fresh water covers 22%. Martian dinosaurs and sleeping kaiju were placed by martian gods to feed the fighting folk of mars. The ruins of 6% of mars on the equator is a city ruinscape where the sky elevator fell on a once megacity of ancients. 5% covered in machine ecologies where wild robots roam. Many are robosaurs and living beings struggle to live here. Some abuse the machines for various purposes.

The sky has two moons. Phobos has a star gate to Planet Ariel on Phobos Demos Phobos (panic/fear) and demon invaded military base on Deimos (god of terror/dread). Various Martial Gods include Mars, Olympia, Spartan, Janus, Set, Nergal, Loki, Eris who all have heavenly orbital platforms and deep bunkers and servitor kaiju.

A ring of 16 solar reflector squares orbit mars and help illuminate it. Fragments of the space elevator and other orbitals remain in orbit also.

Mars has canals and mighty caverns and cisterns as well as abandoned mines and canyons. Ruins of many civilization types exist.

Peoples of Mars
Once mars was independent and even threatened earth it's people and even all known life. The peoples of mars were the first to modify themselves with colonial nationalists defining their form by political unions. Some martians visit earth by saucer to study, loot or prepare a invasion. Most martians lower tech and battle in the wasteland.

9 Loki - lord of lies, deceit and tricks, aids rebelions, helps prisoners and fathers monsters,
10 Venus - the wife of mars and sub AI to the planetary AI of Venus, godess of love and life
11 Thanatos - the destroyer always trying to kill all on mars
12 Eros - god of love who battles his brother constantly and help life be fecund

Gods of mars are mostly not nice and not welcome on Psychon.  Even the space gods dont like martian gods. Martian gods try to hack systems of other gods and introduce martial life on Psychon. Gods are jealous and dont want more gods fighting for influence. Mars and Psychon gods send agents to visit each other.

Serpent men & beast men mythology on Psychon

Best thing ive read in ages to file under "I wish I wrote that" Department

Give me a snake-man and I will explain the monster manual

Awesome stuff 75% compatible with my Exile Island

I have seven monster races who were rebelled against by the modern races and these were one (inspired a bit by forbidden city module), im thinking more and more to develop as a high level setting

On my planet psychon serpent men would say all this and others would claim to be from space and others have biobranded dna to the Robert E Howard World bio park. Where tourists murder clones and androids to relax. Where the serpent men say all this we did it stuff. This cloneline race were sold to various other theme parks with SF themes and whole reptilian and amphibian and dinosaurian races with bad attitudes. Pre Apocalypse military decantered millions of them in zone wars. Many went rogue and intuitivly developed this delusional creed. 1in6 also claim to be from space.

kinda sad poor beastmen brains cant accept truth - hardwired with fiction fundamentalists.
Other beast men like Minotaurs believe they are divine and like occupying confined warren like structures. The ones from the Dragonlance Biopark especially uppity and mostly pirates. Some feel instead they were slave race crafted by some other race for war and defensive guardians or musclemen and guards to bosses.

Ape men have a sophisticated apes rights and conflicting ideas about humans. Some feel they have out evolved humans and have stepped  up to enslave man. Some favour genocide and sterilization. Other love their human buddies (especially ones from long lost orbitals). Some believe humans are apes too and we can all get along. Planet of the Apes theme parks existed also. A few believe they are the true race and humans bio engineered out of control serfs. Other apes isolationist in hidden ape cities.

Penguin men bred for musical productions and water dancing shows. They are very angry and had scandalous sexual features from the variety of penguins used. They practice necrophilia and cross species sex (frequent taboos on this with most tribes). They develop a every day currency from prostitution and they stink of fish. If they fancy you they vomit up some fish meal for you.

Goat men branded as chaos cultists and devil and demon worshippers. Even work in the hells as grunt troops and labour. Lawful goat men say they are hellspawn. Chaotics say they are lesser demons embodied in world to fight as outer planar beings cant.The feel obligated to perform vile acts of cruelty and like heavy metal.

Otters are sophisticated charming but superior. Witty, philosophical and patronizing. They have tribal wars over trivial issues of their materialist creeds.

Dolphin men and unicorn men are big jerks. They are pretty and loved yet both are sleazy and grimy. They prey on humans kind thoughts about them. "Help us humans, bullies are after us!". or "hey buddy let me get close and give you a hug"..

Dolphins often become radio dj's, quizz show hosts and junkies. The males into lewd sexual behavure and assault. Dolphin gangs look for victims to bash for fun. The gang runs around you laughing and squealing and grinning then go for kill. Killer whale men dont bother pretending to be nice to get close like dophins do. Whale men were bread to harvest krill then in turn they were plumbed into factory and farmed for fat and protien. Smaller mobile free ones today resentful to humans still for centuries of being giant biofilters.

Unicorn men are always well dressed and stylish with make up. They love 1980s clothes. Actually savage and brutal in love and make abusive partners in relationships. They are demanding, needy broken people but people still marry them readily. Unicorns prefer virgins of other species. They think shitting glitter on your floor or bed is hilarious. They love drugs, especially ones that make them angrier. They steal everyones hair care products and hog music choices. Punk unicorns protest this rot and look more extreme but many kindly vegetarians in protest to popular bourgeois unicorns. They are still crazy with terrible music and flip out if you lace your DrMartins wrong. Don't confuse them with skinhead unicorn racist gangs who are the least  artistic of unicorns. 

Dont even get me started on how shitty koala and weasel men are.

Budgie men are pretty cool and cheeky socialites. They fight very well together and are happy to have lost flight for being good at violence.

Pig men vary plenty. Some serve Set to wage eternal war, some call themselves "real orcs". Others are pinky fun loving fatty hedonists, the eloi of the beast man tribes.  Some are bristly tusked hunters and soldiers for long lost causes. Others are park rangers bred to hunt poachers. Space pigs were used to scare colonials as horror brutes or later to be shaven hedonists controlling war ships. They cope with boredom and smart and comptant in a crisis.

Bug men or mineral men might also claim to be ancients or aliens or elder servitors. Plant men often hostile and "remember" when plants ruled!

Many farm animal beast men have attitude to humans for enslaving and eating them for thousands of years and stealing their land. Mixed farm beastmen preach humans are bad for not creating sentient beast men sooner. They live in farm communes and struggle with poor leaders like humans do. Zoo type beastmen prefer tribal society and even hunt and eat humans to prove their superiority. Wild beastmen preach serving nature as they butcher human villages.

Cereal and fast food and sport team mascot races are the saddest of all the late pre apocalypse races created. Worshiping their products and their "ancestors" is very serious. If you mock the frog men's frog god of sugar frosted fart bombs then the tribe skin you alive and make you watch while they try on your skin and clownishly mock human kind. Toucan men, pink elephants, monkeys, etc. All crazy. Fast food clown men bread rapidly and need to be killed (part human part clown).

Mega Mutants of Oz for Murder Highway

Murder Highway ideas from playing with new animal and car toys.

As I gamed without minis for 33 years (some paper ones for super games mostly) the experience of collecting and being inspired by collectible dream tokens has been good.

This blog came from me tooling about with toys and FaceBook. A co wrier non gamer buddy (he has played dnd with me)

Murder highway game pieces 1
Hope to run awesome road war game
Somewhere some time soon
I'm big fan of Kim Numan's dark future books and want to re read the non modernized ones

Murder highway game 2

Wombat rampage is a death race with mutant wombats who are trained to attack cars and have the punch of a armoured personnel carrier. But they are more resilient and can burrow and ambush intelligently

Murder highway 3

Some people in the great Aussie wasteland have learned to live with mutant animals like these roo shooters have done. They also have a corporate cloned north American wolf used so effectively in the late 90s midwest zone wars in the usa

Murder highway 4

Killa koala death stare down.

since mega mutation emerged the bush has grown increasingly hostile. High on human blood, sex and eucalyptus, the males challenge cars that stop. Nobody knows how mutants took over the bush but politicians of both parties have exploited the human bush exodus.

Murder highway 5

Bilbies were cute fuzzy critters to most people, a lovely cuddly native bunny. As mega mutants they are feces covered stinking night ambush predators with rodent like reflexes. They snatch people so fast and crush victims skulls so quietly they may kill a whole carload of victims without a shot being fired.

Small settlements have vanished from these kill crazed stealthy hopping killers. The military hunt them in armoured cars. The communal burrowing animals eat giant bugs mostly but humans are even easier kills.

Murder highway 6

Mega mutant spiders are a big problem growing to car sized easily. The redback envenoms prey and cocoons pain nummed victims with a egg sack. The funnel webs build hidden beats for ambush. They inject bodies with a dancing strain of the zombie necrovirus who sacrifice prey for the spider till they are replaced and eaten The huntsman leap from ambush up to 20 metres and have corrosive necrotic venom that melts flesh easily

This car is a expensive elite corp interceptor probably owned by some one with more cash than brains.

Steve sez:
The interceptor looks like one that could split into two mini-turbo sleds

Murder highway 7

This gentle metagenetic ape vat grown in Singapore was owned by a eccentric uranium billionaire who was a big fan of king kong and vintage cars. The now wild Ape has hidden in the wilds of Tasmania and has become the king of wild mega mutants. He likes to flip cars and eat the tasty screaming morsels inside. The ape escaped in a amusement park incident and killed seventy five people escaping. The Tasmanian tourism department has billed the independent island state as the new skull island. Several death races pass through the great apes territory.

Quill's and me extra comments

They need some kind of 'drop' attack - it should be an ability common to all Aussie mutant supercreatures of the near future. Maybe the origin story can be increased effectiveness of gravity attacks down under.

Can they rear back and smash down with their biotitanium claws, in the same way a funnel-web strikes?

Also (just spitballing, would be more fun in person), a 'Wom-Bat' attack, basically a striking attack with a cut-down cricket bat made from a paddle-pop stick or something, dunno, Wombat Rampage sounds cool and Aussie creatures have so many awesome semi-plausible skills. The Mad Max setting writes itself

Me: Feel free to go wild mr lees and I will make you a game setting designer

Oooh, well we need the Chiko Roll Chick depending on the vintage of your players, she can maybe ride in on her chopper Heavy Metal-style and save players or punish them for misdeeds, needs to be strong and cheeky, maybe her arrival means players are fucked with randomly or judged a la deus ex machina.

Me: Wow i need this in my Psychon intro rock star game

Drop Bear Thick-Shake
In a new formulation gone wrong, humble pool attendant Craig unleashes a choc-pineapple thickshake flavour which attracts drop-bears from all over - this thickshake calms their blood-lust, and Craig is hailed a hero until pineapple supplies run low, pitting him against evil Marco from the pizza bar who benefits from both unlimited pineapple for his pizzas, and the drop-bear reign of terror. Players can align with either Craig or Marco, drop-bears are intelligent and can influence play to guarantee maximum pineapple which has narcotic effect which players can leverage to their advantage in honeypot attacks.

Me: Pineapples are a euphemism as queenslanders have grown strain full of meth which pineapple runners cross state borders with loads of the delicious embolism inducing addictive crop. Koalas find comforting and addictive, raiding pineapple green houses and labs in the suburbs..

Awesome - Chiko Chick runs majority of drugs and may or may not be an undercover agent but character influences play substantially and hops sides at random

Me: Gangs occupy giant Australian tourist monuments and the big pinapple gang are the most angry dickless bastards you will ever meat. They would kill their families for one pinnaple. Tinned pinaples are easiest to smuggle into walled city states and fresh food is always suspiciously criminal

Rival gangs run ham - sworn enemies but need each other in symbiotic relationship, wild boars with outsized powers often crop up to attack ham production facilities and also attack pineapple running, wild card element, maybe look like Bebop

More from Steve

Giant mutagenic wildlife is the result of dumped toxins in the outback. The original use for these barrels of experimental mutagenic feed was to enhance the size of the beast while reducing its dietary intake therefore increasing the dollar value of various farm animals in a relatively short time period but the resulting creatures, while growing quite large in size, eventually exhibited extreme aggression to all forms of animal life other than its own species. The government was slow to act due to the large "donations" from the mega Corp involved to key officials but eventually the feed was deemed too dangerous and was made illegal. However distribution of the product was already underway delivering to several key mass farm complexes when the decision was made and to prevent further loss of profit the company simply dumped the barrels of feed in the outback. Unfortunately the feed pellets were found palatable to both herbivorous and carnivorous wildlife resulting in the new mega fauna disaster.

Me: Undead and mutagens originally from space (terraforming invasion?) companies seize and abuse these contaminents and experiment on them. Have been used to advance biotech. Companies possibly being used.

Other banned farming practices include but are not limited to :
Triffidication crop spray turning most plant life forms into an aggressive mobile carrion feeding mutation with the express purpose to extract their now highly nutritious sap.
Dino farming. Particularly dried and powdered raptor organs along with triceratops horn aphrodisiacs.
The remote but infamous "human" farm colonies that produced mass transplant organs to private medical corporations and meat 'delicacies' to certain international dining organisations.

Me: triffids are farmed under licence for food and fuel and wild triffids are a bit of a problem. Contaminating other plants with triffid DNA very dangerous. Dino tourism is licenced but medicine farms use illegal trademarked dinosaurs. Dinos escaping and being mutated or undead by alien spores is a problem . Human farms are totally legit but only if clones not decantered. Easier and cheaper to keep in cells by unskilled staff.
