*reroll, only encounter if you reroll the same number

Random 'driving around post-apocalyptic Atlanta.' Some of the locations are a lil bland, but I figure it's kind of like the empty rooms of a dungeon. OR you could cross out locations as you go, and just roll a d12 for that.

Inspired by Eric Nieudan's post here.

I wrote all this below in a G+ post and realized I need it here too, just 'cause otherwise you miss out on how cool Omega Cats are.

The default landscape is kind of a sweaty field, tall green grasses, some patches of asphalt. There's still trees - lots of pine, the gross redneck of the tree world. They're generally sparse enough you can drive around just fine, on a car or a lawnmower with a repurposed straight-6 engine.

Omega Cats should have 1 randomly chosen ability:
1. NegaYowl
2. Invisibility
3. Feather Fall
4. Phasing
5. CharmFace
6. Hypercut

Half-life water oaks mature and die within 15 minutes of a seed hitting wet clay. They cause havoc by spreading seeds and falling onto things. A sapling takes about a minute to form from a seed. At least we have lots of lumber.

Multidogs are probably regular dogs that can glorp together like The Thing and punch through walls and the like, but some are still semi-friendly even in hulked out form.

Blood dragons are just neon dragons. Sorry. I wanted them to be rare but possible.

Edit:
As Eric pointed out, Blood Dragons should shoot beams of radiation at people. I also now recall from Far Cry: Blood Dragon that they were attracted to cyberhearts, so if you have a bag of salted cyberhearts handy, you can distract them. They're flightless. Should be about HD 9-10 in a Black Hack game.
