Environments (Mundus Dipathis Mechabutzia Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
With no celestial bodies in this plane of existence, lighting in Mechabutzia comes from unusual sources.
Phthuff is an important substance in Mechabutzia that provides bright light when excited with a small electrical charge.
A limited quantity of phthuff exists. It was brought in volume by the Harbringers during the "Phthuff Occurance", stored in tubes. Over time, the substance found its way into the hands of other races and devleoped into various technologies.
- Phthuff flange is a system of wonderful pipes that spout light and echo throughout the most populated areas of Mechabutzia.
- A phthuff tube is a hand-held device that provides a never-ending flow of light.
- Uncharged phthuff also has biochemical properties, and can be injected or applied topically. See phthuff syringe.
For the purpose of interacting with game mechanics, bright light shed by phthuff is considered to be sunlight.
Many areas of Mechabutzia are sealed with maintenance hatches dating back to the first era. A hatch can only be opened with a special mechabutzian wrench. The hatches are numbered to show the age they were built in relative to when Mechabutzia had major construction.
A typical hatch appears to be made of reinforced iron (AC 18) or steel (AC 19), has 200 hit points and a damage treshold of 10. There is usually some sort of locking mechanism, usually a large cylinder or oval shape that connects with some sort of padlock. Some of the hatches have been destroyed by time and wear and need to be repaired. These are marked with a red X on the outside.
|1||Hatch .1357||Located underground near the peristaltic purge.|

|8||Stables.686||Covered in peeling white paint, stands the hulk of the last sentient sledhorse seen to the south before Mechabutzia was founded. If approached, the old steed growls ferociously and sets to work gnawing a chunk of the forest around it. When the meat is gone, it simply rises to nibble another tree.|
