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.

Wilderness Hazards[edit]

Maintenance Hatch[edit]

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.

Example Maintenance
d10 Hatch Description
1 Hatch .1357 Located underground near the peristaltic purge.
2 Mec Archives Usually sealed with mechabutlers, rarely open for inspection.
3 Basement Storage Locks Doors for various locked storage spaces located below ground near the Courtyard Dome. Only a mechabutzian wrench can open these locks.
4 Garden.886 These buttons can control water. Without someone assigned to supervise them, the controls for certain fountains can become deactivated. Or worse, broken.
5 Courtyard Sustainability Lab.830 Was recently opened after reconstruction, still sealed off at this moment.
6 Atrium Respiration Facility 752 This is a combination oxygen tank/filter machine for inhabitants, both living and undead. The fish inside of it serve as filters. This room can also be used to feed either zombies or Slimekins through tubes in the machine.
7 Library.545 On shelf 61 are books bound in weathered leather.
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.
9 Lockdowns.967 High ranking member of the Golden Order is trapped inside this hatch during a lockdown.
10 Upper Controls.690 Constructed in 1926, this third level controls the lift mechanism and other mechanisms of the reservoir roof.
