Check the first post in the thread. Scotland is where the Royal family or Government moved to.

Obvious inspiration for enclaves but some cool ones

and something kind of dumb but useful for working in your area or another one that you're maybe not so familiar with - https://mapofthedead.com/ (shows locations of stores and vets and others)

Running RM in the UK I would definitely want to make it difficult to source guns and ammo; not sure of the best way to do that beyond pushing the upkeep costs of guns upwards. Hell, we don't even have bows as we don't have hunting culture outside of toffs and dogs v foxes.

It would make RM much more dangerous as melee would be the norm.

One solution; as described, the UK is effectively the recession of Western Europe - and uses the latest in drone farming and so forth to effectively invade and control agriculture across all of what it can reasonably reach on the mainland. Those refugees get to work in dole settlements.

Some whisper the Ministry let Ireland die just so it could take the farmland and cut down on the mouths to feed.

(What's the safe part of the UK in that link?)

Bit of column B, sometimes?

A DDJ is essentially a small explosive nested in a bunch of carbon nanotube wiring, with a spiked outer casing. You stab the spiked casing onto a door, then set the DDJ off, where it proceeds to shoot the carbon wire harpoons to the sides, lodging into the door frame. The door ends up being reinforced, essentially backed with a flexible but very high tensile strength web connected to the (presumably) more stable door frame, making it impossible to open. If the door is broken or pulled from the hinge, it's still tightly suspended in the doorway in the web of carbon nanotube wire. Very difficult to get through without a lot of work, and requiring many many more casualties to bust through than any ordinary door would.

Now, if it has the Homebrew upgrade, what happens is the outer casing is less sturdy or consciously removed, making it so the wire harpoons don't only go along one plane, but instead scatter to all directions.

Hello,
Can someone please explain Denial Door Jams (DDJ’s) to me? It seems like they have been described differently in different places and I’m having trouble imagining them.
Are they like an explosive trap that is triggered by tripwires, or are they like a grenade wrapped in super-strong fibres that spread out when it explodes? Or is it a combination?

Anymore great Red Markets Actual Plays to list?
I have a recording of a one shot, but I don't know where to host it. It's a few months old, and shows some of my inexperience, but I hope to share it when I can.
