Another location that I created for my Shadowrun game. This is the junkyard that the Drunken Drone is attached too.
>>Nice place for your junk requirements. If you want it then you should be able to find it ... for a price. Just don't expect to wander in and steal what you want though, the owners know their business and the security is top tier.
Type: Industrial / Junkyard
Location: UCAS / Seattle / Redmond
Located at the back end of the Seattle in the rough area of the barrens, there is a large area that is the Westerlund Junkyard. Your first sight is the large concrete fence that encloses the junk-yard. The fence stands four metre high, a imposing concrete barrier with electrified razor wire coils on top. Visible cameras watch your every move as you walk along the path beside the wall. Gang graffiti decorates the wall with layers of colours, several years worth by the look of them. The southern wall is broken in the middle by a large set of double steel gates allowing access to the junk-yard during business hours (0800-2000 Mon-Fri). On the north west corner of the yard, there is a door leading to the Drunken Drone nightclub.
During the day the yard is full of trucks and machines moving, sorting and shipping materials around the country. Westerlund employees 10 staff to work the yard and handle the various machines used to sort the junk. There doesn’t appear to be any active security personal walking around the site.
During the night, any intruders are met by several drones armed and dangerous, these wander around after the staff have gone home.
>>Don't forget the ghost of the dutch rigger. He walks the stacks at night looking for that one last piece of gear that will complete his masterpiece.
>>Four more ghosts will be added after last night. Some wannbe runners decided to have a go and try and grab one the drones patrolling the yard. From what I have heard it was brief but very messy.
There are suggestions of smugglers using the yard at night as a rest and repair point, but these are just rumours.
Entering the node you find yourself in a large warehouse, the walls of which are covered in items for sale. The prices and quantities are hovering in neon-green text above each item. Towards the back of the building there is a door that leds into a large area where auctions are held for the more unique and rare items.
If there is an auction currently on, there are people lining the walls bidding for the items as they are displayed in a large holographic display in the middle of the room. The current winning bid and time remaining are displayed below. If there is no auction there will be a list of items and times for the next auction. Normally auctions are held of the first friday of each month, but addition ones are held if needed to clear stock or special items come up.
In both areas there are icons, dressed in Westerlund uniform, wandering around offering help and taking orders.
In my game this place was a hot bed of smuggling and car alterations. Underneath the junkyard there was a complete rigger repair and rearm yard, accessible through a hidden door under a junk pile.
Otherwise, like many junkyards, it is a good place to find the bit that you need for your masterpiece.
