Since my creative downtime has been preoccupied with Necromunda as of late, I was thinking of terrain pieces to build for the game. My thoughts wandered to Dakotamart. Most of you have probably never heard of it. It’s a regional chain of WalMart-like stores native to South Dakota. I have been to the one in Pierre, but it was several years ago. From what I remember about it, it was comprised of three floors. The ground floor was the grocery floor. I don’t think I need to explain that one any further. The second floor down was what I would call the department store floor, which featured clothes, fashion items, bedding and whatnot. The bottom floor was my favorite. It was the sporting goods floor, and it had a spectacular shooting sports department. My wife had to drag me away from that area of the store because I was about to break the bank on ammunition purchases.
As you can ascertain, this Dakotamart is a pretty cool store to venture into. My idea was to try to create a Necromunda version of it for game-play. The only problem with that is it would have to be a HUGE piece of terrain or at least several large pieces that fit together to form a larger playing area that would most likely take up the whole of the tabletop. I would most likely call it, “Hivemart”. Probably not a very original name, but it fits.
I figure if I don’t end up creating it for a game, I may write about it in some forthcoming Necromunda fan fiction.
