A long time ago I ran a brief Mutant future campaign for some friends. I had done a PILE of prep with locations factions etc, my intention at some point was to release it. At the time I think everything that I wrote I was "going to release", which was a silly thought. I decided I'm going to release it here, over the course of a few blogposts. Hopefully I can get a bit more indepth into the world I created. Here's the start of it.
The adventures take place in the frozen wastes of Manitoba. I had condensed a map to add in a few towns that we have been to in IRL and the city I'm in. The starting point village was the town of Gimli (which has a lot of Viking roots). There is a statue of an Icelandic adventurer in the town. I ended up modelling the starting village inhabitants around Icelandic culture, the God's they believed in, etc. I decided that the ancients had passed down books from Libraries with the information that they started to incorporate.
Gimli is notable for its Icelandic culture and celebrates this locally unique heritage throughout the year and the community of Gimli. A popular sight in the town is the pier which extends from the downtown shoreline out onto Lake Winnipeg and features the Gimli Seawall Gallery, a cement wall 977 feet (298 m) long featuring 72 murals which depict the history and stories of the community.
The town was basically surrounded by a half ring dike of old cars (similar to new vegas), the rest of the town was protected by the north shore of frozen Lake Winnipeg.
