Post-Merge, it was soon discovered that several pre-Merge properties on Earth-Prime had somehow gained hidden rooms and even entire floors. People who owned such buildings but didn't want the police to deal with it started to hire XDs and empowered locals to secure them, as they had the best chance of surviving the experience. And a lot of them were amazingly up for it! After all, it meant they could do a real-life dungeon crawl! When it turned out that most of the stuff inside was still usable, word got out fast. Base raiding has since become a dangerous and profitable occupation and hobby. And if you find something you can use to empower yourself or to sell on, that's the icing on the cake!
And the places that can be raided often vary depending on region.
In America and Canada for example, people are looking for Fallout-verse Vaults, containing dangers such as homicidal robots, raiders, Super Mutants and radiation. The prize: The wonders of Vault-Tec's Atompunk technology. Pip-Boys, laser weapons, Power Armor, maybe even the Fat Man nuclear catapult! (Though that last one is understandably considered to be highly illegal for civilians to possess) And after the horrors of the Chaos Incursion, anything found that makes it easier to build and rebuild is highly valuable! The C.A.M.P. - the Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform - is a fabricator designed to quickly create new buildings after an apocalypse: just add materials. And a region with a lot of abandoned spaces like North America is ideal territory for C.A.M.P. usage. But the holy grail of Vault raiders has become the G.E.C.K.: the Garden of Eden Creation Kit. The G.E.C.K. is a terraforming module designed to bring life back to a nuclear wasteland and it is the very pinnacle of Vault-Tec's advanced technology.
In the Old World, people have actually raided real castle and palace dungeons! Americans have been known to travel to hit an recently discovered dungeon, so they can say to their friends that they did a real dungeon crawl!
It's all fun and games until your bedroom closet contains an entry to the Tomb of Horrors. That's the third time a recently gender switched and naked paladin has stumbled into my bedroom.
You still need to dodge and resist the Bulldozer's Flashbang. After that, I'll do the result of Marvel and Caroline's rolls. Your turn is after Griffin's, which I'll do in the same post.
