"A had a few things going on it my head when I designed this mutant set," said artist William T. Thrasher. "The first is something that I always try to keep in my head whenever more than two monsters are going to be facing players ... that I got from Dan O'Bannon and the comments he made about the zombies in Return of The Living Dead. He made a point of having four zombies that weren't just generic, shambling monsters. They each had a distinct physical appearance, attitude, and method of attack. ... I wanted to take a similar approach to the mutants in this set. ... I also wanted to make most of the mutants look as if they had a history long before the PCs encounter them."
Skirmisher's "Creatures of the Wastelands" products are fully compatible with Mutant Future, as well as Labyrinth Lord and other games based on the familiar and easy-to-use "Basic D&D" rules introduced in the 1970s.
