House-rule Dump! Here’s my first run at how I’m going to treat armour and such: EPT_armour_shields_weapons01 I’ll be granting players the option of giving their characters either the rules-as-written version of Constitution bonuses/penalties or this version by Glenn Rahman, from Dragon 31 (no back and forth though; you’re either an ox or an ocelot: choose):… Read more »
The madness continues. Today’s installment covers converting characters from Star Frontiers into models for Mutants and Death Ray Guns, and vice versa. I give you Dralasites and Death Ray Guns: Dralasites_and_Death_Ray_Guns01 There is a ton of great Star Frontiers info here. And Fight On! magazine published (in issue #11) a cool little article translating dralasites… Read more »
My mission to stat everything on my shelf for everything on my shelf continues: Travellers_and_Death_Ray_Guns01 It also contributes to this post about Zhodani Commandos. Zhodani Commandos!
In Goodman Games’ upcoming piece of wonder and glory — Mutant Crawl Classics — you play, that’s right, wasteland wanderers!

Not really. More like just ’cause I wanna. Well that and, amazingly, nobody* has seen fit to inject chickens — by far Earth’s most domesticated bird — into Metamorphosis Alpha. Weird right? Chickenoids in Metamorphosis Alpha Number Appearing: 2-6 (2d3) Armour Class: 8 Move yds/turn: 12 Hit Dice: … Read more »
I love DAT Tramp! Just great art: Then I found this in White Dwarf 17: And Mr. Sholtis kicked the field goal with YEAH, but THIS Manticore …
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…. Read more »
