After running some well-received demo games of MDRG at Trumpeter’s Salute ’15 this past month I’ve hatched an idea:
This as this via this to this, all at this. Cül right?
I’m thinking a competitive round (or two) of Mutants and Death Ray Guns bring-and-battle leading to a final round of Metamorphosis Alpha roleplay exploration.
It’s ligers all the way down!
Details to follow.
This is my first run at a system for converting Metamorphosis Alpha characters to Mutants and Death Ray Guns figures, and vice versa:
I’ve run some tests with statted NPCs from the glorious
Goodman Games MetAl hardcover and also with some entirely random characters I rolled up using my Dicenomicon app (my goto for not-dice). The results in both directions were quite even.
Next up is another round of tests with some pre-gens out of the 1st edition of MuDRaG. I’ll edit this post with those results. I have high hopes.
[Edit: Well I have to say this thing works like a hot damn! I ran a batch of 1st Ed. MuDRaG stats forward to MetAl and back and they all kept their numbers in both directions. Colour me pleased.]
Preferred powered protection of the ’80s (which century’s ’80s is up to you).
This, this and this led to this:
So this is happening on
Go and back it because it is cool. Cactus Jack in particular is calling my name.
I’ve already got some
ThunderChild figs; it’s all good stuff.
In case you don’t already know
Atomic Robo is right up there with ligers. And the only way Atomic Robo could be better is if he was a talking — and smoking — Six-gun Gorilla. Lucky for us:
here; Bot here.
It might have gone something like this:
EDIT: Or he
might be a Corpse Jelly (pp. 73-74 of Anomalous Subsurface Environment). Maybe.
The best four space-poc years of the 1980s:
The Day After (1983)
Warlords of the 21st Century (1982)
Def-Con 4 (1985)
All four are highly recommended if you want to inject some dismal into your games.
So this happened:
this post on the all-round impressive Agis Neugebauer’s site I ordered the pictured MaKs from the equally impressive coolkits (scroll down to the 1/35th scale figs).
On the left is the Fireball Prowler in flight and on ground. Right!?
Next on my list:
In case you don’t know:
[Those discs are
Warbases. Awesome peeps. Buy their stuff.]
I just watched
Last Train to Doomsday for I don’t know, maybe the tenth time. Only just noticed this guy:
And I think that’s a young Yeek (the aerial Ookla who appears in
Den of the Sleeping Demon) to the left of the Spidergoat.
