Remember when the Joker tried to stock Gotham City's river with his own custom designed fish?

Well, the comments to this one note that it's more of a deep lake mutatant, not custom design. Still potential adventure material, but of a different kind.

Liverpool has a "vast network" of tunnels underneath its streets, and although it's known that they were built 200 years ago by tobacco merchant Joseph Williamson, no one knows why. A "small band of investigators" has recently begun breaking into and exploring the tunnels.

Quote:

So far, they’ve uncovered ink wells once used by schoolchildren, bottles that held everything from beer to poison, jam jars, ceramics from Liverpool’s Royal Infirmary, oyster shells, chamber pots, animal bones and hundreds of clay pipes.
...
Perhaps Williamson wanted secret passages to get to and from buildings in Edge Hill. Or was a smuggler and needed the tunnels to carry out covert operations.

Or maybe he and his wife belonged to a fanatical religious cult that anticipated the end of the world, and his tunnels were designed to provide shelter during the apocalypse.

Much shorter story here, but with video of the tunnels.

Who said cyberpunk is dead?

"...a school district just bought its first armored behemoth.

The BAE Systems Caiman is a six-wheeled, 18-ton Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle, or MRAP, equipped with the best in Tensylon composite armor, stations for any manned or unmanned weapons system you could ever possibly want, and a V-shaped hull to deflect the crushing blast from massive land mines and improvised explosive devices, and the San Diego School District just picked up its first one."

(I may have seen this before on here, so apologies if it's a repost.)
