Do you still play Gamma World or another post-apocalyptic, science fiction RPG? Do you wish there was more material for the games you play? Well, your wish has been granted: a 36-page fanzine for your post-apocalyptic game campaign or reading pleasure! In the second issue of Gamma Zine, you'll find three short adventures, new mutated monsters, lost and forgotten tech, and more.
The zine will be black & white, saddle-stitched and digest-sized. Unlike the first project in 2019, the size of this second issue is fixed because it's already written!
Although the fanzine will focus primarily on the first edition of Gamma World by TSR, we'll try to keep much of the fanzine flexible to allow the reader to adapt its contents to other systems. However, when statistics are displayed for foes and challenges, we'll use the earliest edition of Gamma World for the rules and stats.
Face it. You don’t care what the adventure is called. You’re just there to blow the reactor. And nothing says that you mean business when you kick in a bunker door like rolling a glow-in-the-dark high-impact d20 across the table — unless it’s rolling a different color glow-in-the-dark d20 on your next action! These 20mm glow-in-the-dark d20s come in four different isotopes, so there’s a die for every mutant murder hobo occasion. Charge one of these chemiluminescent babies up with an LED flashlight, and they even glow in different colors with the lights on!
Proven by the super-science of the Ancient Makers to roll better and luckier than normal 20-sided dice, each Mutant Murder Hobo d20 glows when charged, and all those extra photons create a mild propulsive force that only adds to the spin, span, and sass of each toss of these deadly d20 dice.
We go in assuming you already have the core books to play your favorite games and instead jump right into OSR-inspired material that is unavailable anywhere else, giving you an entire cover-to-cover zine devoted strictly to cool new adventures, quirky NPCs, wondrous magical items, marauding monsters, fell locations, relics from beyond the mists of time and all sorts of heroic fantasy resources for your tabletop games.
As this project launches, The Phylactery is a cover-to-cover 24-page, saddle-stitched, 5.5-inch by 8.5-inch B&W printed zine with a bad ass color cover by Planet X favorite Ed Bickford. This booklet is jam packed with page after page of heroic fantasy adventure influenced heavily by early third party RPG badassery like Dave Hargrave’s infamous Arduin Grimoire series and the early Dragontree Press stuff. The Phylactery is meant to be a quick and easy resource that you can pull ideas and plot hooks from for use directly at your gaming table. There’s no fluff in here and nothing padding out the page count - just pure old school goodness created exclusively for the fantasy gaming community. We have absolutely JAM-PACKED a ton of RPG goodness in here for you.5 bucks for the PDF, 10 bucks for print plus PDF (free shipping in the US). I'm in for print :)
Let's talk about what's inside: This is a glimpse into how I run a campaign. I've run games for over 41 years, and like every game master in existence, I've created my own rules and mechanics. I provide a list of these rules/mechanics to provide a sense of immersion particular to the Komor Forest. Then you'll find Hounds Head, a place for the party to get information, get henchmen, get supplies, sell stuff, and rest until their next adventure. Then what follows is an array of adventures. The adventures aren't meant to be played in any order. While the adventures are separate there are connections between some of them. Within the adventures there are new magic items, new spells, new monsters, and new artifacts. And any old school gaming zine wouldn't be complete without random tables. Yeah, it's got some of those.Wait a second! Our party is currently IN Komar Forest. Am I even allowed to back this? Fuck it. I ain't telling Tim if you don't ;)
