Founded: 1943 Destroyed: 2120

Description: A sprawling complex of crumbling concrete buildings half-buried under thick vegetation, with rusted barbed wire fences and warning signs barely visible amidst the overgrown trees and vines. The main entrance is marked by a broken sign that reads "Oakridge National Research Laboratory."

Surrounding Area: The Oakridge National Research Laboratory, once a hub of cutting-edge nuclear, genetic, and biotechnology research, now lies in ruins after the Sundering. The landscape is dominated by dense forests that have reclaimed much of the facility, with twisted metal structures and shattered windows peeking out from the undergrowth. The air is heavy with the scent of decay and the sounds of wildlife echoing through the abandoned corridors.

Traveler Warning: In the aftermath of the Sundering, the once-contained experiments at Oakridge have mutated and escaped into the wild. The surrounding forests are now home to dangerous fauna, such as genetically modified creatures with unpredictable behaviors and deadly abilities. From giant carnivorous plants to radiation-resistant predators, navigating the overgrown ruins of Oakridge is fraught with peril as these mutated creatures roam freely, posing a constant threat to any who dare to venture into their territory.

History: The facilities that became Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) were created in 1943 during the United States’ super-secret World War II project to construct an atomic bomb (the Manhattan Project). During World War II and for several years thereafter, essentially all ORNL activities were classified.

The main ORNL site is frequently known as “X-10.” That name had its origins in late 1942 as a code name for the initial product (plutonium) of the Graphite Reactor and chemical processing plant at Oak Ridge.
