this mugger must be pretty desperate if all he can find for a weapon is a brick. the homeless man here is based loosely on a real person, a homeless guy who harassed me at my apartment a couple times and who even pushed his way inside once in the middle of the night. i gave him almost $200 partly because i thought he was going to kill me and also because i really wanted to help but i didn't know how, but he seemed really grateful and gave me a hug and everything and said he needed the money to get to Memphis to see his family or something. i've never seen him since.
Dranac is hot and dry, being in a desert, so rainfall is very sparse. most of the puddles seen around the city are either undrinkable sewage water, chemicals, or just nasty garbage goop fluid.
