Hypercorps 2099: Specimens in Centralia (5e)

The operators are already on their way to Centralia, PA, where a coal mine that caught fire over a century and a half ago has finally died down. Forsyte Technologies© recently lost an incredibly important research subject from one of their labs on the outskirts of the metropolis—a hyper-drake named Skrygrard—and its tracking signature goes dark near one of the entrances into the subterranean network of passages. Coming back with the specimen alive means a lucrative 10,000 bytecoins, but reduced compensation beats dying in a soot-choked tunnel.

Specimens in Centralia is a 5th Edition-compatible adventure in the world of Hypercorps 2099. The module begins with the operators (the PCs) en route to Centralia's coal mines, the sight of a fire raging since 1962. Within is their quarry, but how they take it down and bring it back to Pittsburgh plays a large role with how much they'll get paid! While this adventure is ideal for a party of four operators of 3rd-4th level (hyper score 3), it is also suitable for regular PCs of 7th-8th level.

Inside the 26 pages of Specimens in Centralia you'll find:

  • An exciting roadside battle with the Giganot biker gang, the flaming deathtrap of the Centralia Mines, and a dramatic negotiation with the Ms. Gray that hired the operators in the first place
