GM's Map 55: Health Centre
Map making can be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating for GMs¸ especially GMs with limited time to begin with. In our new 'GM's Maps' range¸ we will be providing a range of pre-made maps for you to use in your games.
The health centre provides primary and preventative medicine to the community and is often the first contact between a patient and medical services. From coughs and sniffles to minor injuries the health centre deals with the outpatient services that we all need from time to time. It may include dentists¸ midwives¸ post and anti-natal care¸ councillors and opticians as well as having the facilities for medical photography and scanners and it's own pharmacy and dispensary.
The medical centre isn't a fully equipped hospital though and lacks beds¸ wards or even an emergency room (although it does have a minor injuries unit for those times we cut ourselves on power tools or sprain an ankle).
The map presented here is quite flexible and can be used in almost any modern or near future setting and in most countries. The GM may wish to limit or alter some services offered by the medical centre to take account of local needs or regulations.
Also included are 10 scenario ideas for you to use with the map if you wish. From gang wars and drug robberies to strange¸ secret experiments or sinister goings on¸ medical emergencies to outright disasters¸ the scenario ideas should help to fire your imagination and help you come up with even more of your own interesting ways to incorporate the medical centre into your scenario's and campaign.
6/. Blood and Buckfast
An ageing vampire is working quietly in a medical centre¸ helping the community and living on blood bags - he's popular and dedicated to his work. One of his new patients¸ Mr Helsing¸ realises what he is and sends his gangster grandkids around. The vampire and his nurses have to survive the night - will the vampire 'out' himself? how will the nurses react? (Concept by Daniel Dunlavey).
