Headstone Mine is an old mine that has become a base of operations for bandits under the control of the bandit lord Sledge. It is a large area, with many buildings and rocky outcrops.


Headstone Mine used to be a successful mine controlled by the Dahl corporation. In the course of the mining operation something was discovered and hastily covered up. While it has never been fully revealed what was found there, it is known that a Vault key fragment came into the possession of Sledge, a grossly muscled behemoth of a man who later amassed a small army of bandits at the mine. The discovery had a surprising effect on many of the convict workers there. Most went crazy and many were physically mutated as well, growing into huge, muscular parodies of humanity, or stunted to dwarf proportions. Unable to control the convict population any longer, Dahl were forced to withdraw, and the mine that had once been a hive of productivity became a headquarters for the many bandits plaguing the Arid Badlands.
