Default Places for caches

Caches are an integral part of MP. Each cache should be as unique as possible because nothing says 'uninspired' as a concrete box in a field. However, it is difficult to come up with interesting on the fly so lets put a few ideas out here.

You should work out how exposed and how tampered with the cache is. For example a very exposed site might be under the statue of a new town. Tampered sites might not be breached but rather attempted breaches a few times. They might be booby trapped or set to send a signal when approached.

Okay, here's a few;

1: In the embankment under a bridge. The door is a steel plate.
- The bridge may have collapsed
- The door may have rusted shut or have serious amounts of debris against it
- There may be a trip flare attached to the debris or similar

2: A fake stormwater tunnel. There is a door at the end of the tunnel
- Something lives in the tunnel. Something big.
- Corpses are strewn about the tunnel. One of the corpses has a Morrow Project ID. There is no clue to what killed them.

3: In a field. The classic 'fridge in a field'
- A 150 year old dead and stripped M1A2 tank sits on top of the cache and the treads/road wheels have sunk into the ground. Several other military wrecks are in the area.

4: 15m South East from a 'founder' statue
- The new people have adopted the statue as the founder of their little town. It sits in the middle of their armed canton

5: In a dead mall in fairly good shape
- The bottom two floors are flooded
- Animals and things have been attracted by the water. The labyrinthine mall allows them to stalk each other.
- The information for the cache is annoyingly vague. The lower levels of the five story mall is pitch black. The actual cache is attached to a store room and the surrounding area is half flooded. Opening the cache will allow the water in.

A drive-in movie theater

The cache is built into the foundations of one of the screens

A community makes use of this place . Their "emergency services" make use of the theater's radio transmitter and some salvaged car radio receivers.

In my Morrow world, Morrow established orphanages, and small technical schools. Ideal recruitment/indoctrination places, and of course easy for Morrow Construction (or its shell companies) to add in a few secret cache chambers during construction.

Purpose-built 2-bay oil change/minor car repair/gas station with attached convenience store. Access to cache through one of the sunken areas used for oil changes. A parent company could have built numerous buildings like this outside many small towns across a state, region, or the country.

Problem 1 is that the building was overbuilt, so has been repurposed as a shelter by an armed group. A well-armed group if they have found the cache.

Problem 2 is that an organized group has made the connection between this company and caches/boltholes beneath them and is on a slow campaign of systematically looting them.

Also consider a small Self Storage facility, these can cover up to a city block in size with lots of areas not visible to the general public, has both indoor and outdoor units, a surprisingly large number of commercial owners rent units to store "excess" merchandise, traffic by strangers in everything from the family compact to 18-wheelers, and can be found in some of the most surprising locations.
The reason that the American Army does so well in wartime, is that war is chaos, and the American Army practices chaos on a daily basis.
