Basic Information

The Tagebau Garzweiler is a large coal mine using strip mining in Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany. The bucket-wheel excavators used there are the largest vehicles in the world. The whole mine is gradually moving, as the overburden excavated on one end is deposited on the other.



Game and Story Use

  • All the mining equipment makes for great scenery for an extended fight scene.
    • Especially the excavators.
  • The mining operations might dig up an Eldritch Abomination.
    • Which in turn might possess the mining equipment. Especially the excavators, of course.
      • If they can make the excavators move faster and up the slopes, you have a giant movie monster worthy of any movie.
  • Consider using a similar layout and operational procedure for pit mines for other substances than coal - possibly even supernatural ones, in settings where those are known to exist.
    • The "ghost rock" of Deadlands would be a good example.
