  17. Rusted,broken, and wrecked an ancient war machine of the Ancients still contemplates its own existence and is actually a 10th level A.I. wizard in its own right. The thing wishes for another body but so far no one has been crazy enough to grant its wish. There are 1d8 valuable minor relics within it a tribe of humanoids and gold goblins worships the thing. Very few wizards or warlords of the wastelands will dally with it because of its frightening insanity. 
  18. A rusted ruin of a factory has appeared overnight on the landscape and its ruled by a deranged and seemingly 'benevolent' time and dimensional traveling wizard is testing the local population looking for a successor for his craft.

There are 1d8 weird and valuable materials that have been shed. 1d10 local mutant monster tribes are searching  for the stuff. Each of these things is worth a cool 1d10 thousand gold pieces to the right wizard or alchemist. But a rival band of adventurers the same level or above the party is searching for the same stuff and will make life very difficult. 
  20. An ancient evil has arisen from the landscape and its power is incredible. The elder thing Yargo the Deathless has come from its ancient slumber driven by the wizard Dracus the Horrid (10th level wizard). His awakening has uncovered several valuable pre Apocalyptic pieces of hardware worth a small fortune each but  only one old man is aware of these thing's significance. The sage Vartop The Incredible(also known as the Incompetent) has divined their purpose and is on his way trying to hire adventurers unfortunately the forces of Dracus are after him. There will be 1d8 mutant warriors after the poor man.
