GM's Map 65: Self Storage Facility
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.
Self-storage facilities have been on the rise since the 1960s as the need for low-cost storage has been increasing. People can rent storage bays of various sizes by the month and store more or less anything in them. Every now and then an abandoned bay or one where the owner has defaulted will be auctioned off in batches by the storage facility.
Almost anything can be found in these storage bays and this product not only provides you with a map of the storage facility but also comes with a section of ideas for adventures and another detailing some of the more unusual¸ mysterious or weird things that might be found inside.
Examples of Adventure Ideas
8/. The party are investigating a kidnapping when clues lead them to the storage facility. The suspect has hired numerous storage bays around the facility¸ some are booby trapped but one contains the kidnap victim. The suspect doesn't seem to be there¸ but as the PCs try to leave¸ they discover the hard way that someone has cut the breaks on their car(s). Who is the kidnapper and do they have associated at the storage facility?
9/. The party wake up locked in a storage container. They can't recall how they got there or what is going on. The facility seems to have been abandoned¸ it is night time¸ but there are sounds from elsewhere in the facility that suggest someone – or something – is in here with them.
