"The Mutant Epoch is about humankind’s attempt to reclaim some semblance of civilization, calling upon its best and boldest to uncover the lost knowledge and power of the old ones." 

The Mutant Epoch™ post-apocalyptic RPG challenges your in-game persona to survive in an age of rediscovery, high adventure, savage conflict, and freakish mutants and machines. Characters work in small excavation teams making forays into ruined cities, through junk strewn wastelands, twisted forests, nightmarish swamps and across polluted seas. During their expeditions they must contend with mutant beasts, the environment, as well as raiders, cultists, and robotic forces, only to stake their place in the newly emerging barter forts and factional bastions of humanity. 

Players can take on the roles of pure stocks, mutants, ghost mutants, cyborgs, beastial humans and an assortment of synthetic or engineered humans.

All you need is this book, dice, paper and pencils, a few friends and your imagination. The Mutant Epoch™ uses the Outland System™ game mechanic, which employs the full set of polyhedron dice, is easy to learn, logical, fast paced, and perfectly suited to the hard core action of post apocalyptic game play. 

Inside this lavishly illustrated book you will find all the rules, art and content to generate characters, challenge them with perils, and then reward them with potent relics. This core book includes: • 8 character types • 30 castes • 36 skills • over a 111 mutations • 68 cybernetic implants •104 creatures • 9 robots and 10 androids • complete encounter tables • hazards, traps and insanity • typical humans • rules for called shots, parrying and chases • 9 relic vehicles, 44 weapon relics, 14 armor relics and 70+ miscellaneous relics • common PA vehicles and 10 scrap built Vehicles • dozens of helpful tables • character sheet • GMs party record sheet • grid and hex paper, and much more! 

Plus, there are numerous supplemental books, free Creatures of the Apocalypse, Pay What You Want PDFs, fiction, art, and as an added bonus buying the TME Hub Rules book automatically grants the owner exclusive membership in the Society of Excavators.

Would you say this works better for grim, gritty Road Warrior With Muties playstyles, or bonkers gonzo Thundarr the Barbarian stuff?

I'm really enjoying reading the book so far. Androids seem to be hinted at as a PC race many times. Is this a teaser? :^)

Yes, they will be playable characters in upcoming Expansion rules book, along with a lot of other new character types. No date set for the release of the new rules book, gonna take a lot of playtesting, art and editing yet!

I've heard that the font for this is a bit small. Any recommendations on alternate page size for a printshop edition?

Hi Jeremy,

If you are referring to the comments made in this youtube review,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1Yn9qub1bU
by Tetsubo57 then yes, that 8 x 10” version that I believe he looked at did have smaller than standard type as the book had to be shrunk from the 8.5 x 11" standard edition back in the early days before createspace had the letter size option. I have over 40 year old eyes and reading is a strain, but I have no problem reading the TME Hub Rules and so every day when referring to the main book when crafting new game content. It is 9 point type for most of it, like the size in most novels I guess. All our follow up books had much larger type (11pt).

I saw a copy of this recently and am really, really intrigued. I wonder though, how does this game handle powered armor?

Powered armor is handled carefully, at least by the game master. While there are several sorts of relic suits left over, the tricky part for characters is finding enough ammo or getting a power back charged… which is an adventure all in its own. Whenever I, as game master, have introduced power armor, I have already had it first appear worn by the villain! That makes him or her a deadly opponent, but also displays the awesome clout of such ancient technology.

As far as rules go, various power armors have a different array of weapon systems, force fields, jump jets or modifiers to the wearer’s strength and other traits. Such relics are for high rank game sessions only. Glad you’re interested in the game, have a great week!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
