Default A tent that turns into concrete in less than 24 hours

Even though it goes against the play goals of the game designers (generally keeping the team from settling down), I can see the project being all over this technology.

Nice!!

I could see this being part of the bolt hole supplies. If not there, in one of the supply caches.

On the subject of staying put vs roaming the countryside.

I do not know about other TMP players/gm's, it seems to me that most of the games I played in the team settled down in the first town they came to.

Reasons:

1) No contact with upper mgt via radio call in.
2) The people RIGHT here could use our help NOW!!
3) There is always the odd bad guy that needs handling, the strange monster that needs taming, and, best of all, once you are off duty for the day, the team's supply of sipping whiskey IS 150 + years old. Talk about SMOOTH!!!

My $0.02

Hell... this would work perfectly for the Camp-in-a-Box idea that I proposed. It would be a very... well, it'd make it alot easier for them to set up a camp. and not require so damn much supplies in storage.

Just too heavy. Requires a fork lift to move one into place and the high volume fan to inflate one is a separate piece too. For sure it can be part of a Regional supply base. The Base could have the AT forklifts to put one in place, the water tanker to saturate it, and have the high volume fans to inflate one. Along with all the other personnel to make it a go.

Certainly a candidate for "Morrow Villages" meant to get WW3 Survivors out of the weather, or to set up civil Governments outside of Major cities and State Capitols.

I can see the Project working hard to get Civil Government back up fast so that People can help themselves; and the message is coming from familiar faces, not men in berets with machine guns.

Heh, then add 150 years and plan A is useless.

What do you suppose Krell did with the ones he captured?
