The Mutant Epoch
by Christopher T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/11/2014 13:42:33
As a game collector with fascination for the post-apocalyptic genre, I've got a ton of rpgs in my library, from classics like Gamma World and Aftermath to the more obscure titles such as Waste World. I've read and enjoyed them all, but I don't think I've ever encountered or played one as enjoyable as The Mutant Epoch. For me, this truly is the best post-apocalyptic game on the market.
The old school approach to the game mechanics appeal to my sensibilities, and the rules are flexible enough to survive any tweaks I need to make for own campaign requirements. And as for the content of this single book, I can only say I'm truly impressed. There's plenty of skills, a vast arsenal of weapons and armor ranging from the primitive and improvised to the highest of tech, and a broad enough array of monsters, robots and hazards to keep any group of players on their toes. With the tools this book provides, you'll easily have enough material to create and run any number of campaigns.
Give this game a look. You won't be disappointed.

Wasteland Treasures 1
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 07/26/2014 08:58:07
A major part of any post-apocalyptic game is seeing what you can scavenge in your travels, and then working out how to utilise what you've found or at least trade it for something else that you want. This means that the GM has to be ever alert to leaving stuff around for you to find... and here's a collection of random tables to help the GM do just that!

The author describes compiling them by reading catalogues and visiting websites for military/survivalist suppliers, looking around campsites and even in his own garage - and indeed as you look around you right now, there's probably quite a lot of stuff that might interest a scavenger. Even if my desk is mostly piled with RPG books and computer equipment, the odd item within eyeshot might be of use (at least until I tidy the multi-tool away!).

Anyway, to get you started there are three tables here. Roll randomly, or read through them and select the things you want the party to have. The first one is quite general 'loot found in ruins' - and there's a motly collection of items that might be found in any ruined urban site. Each is given a variable value - if you do try to sell it you will probably have to dicker - and often some suggested uses. Oh, and no doubt in reference to my desk, it includes a fantasy RPG complete with dice AND a multi-tool!

The second table is slightly more focussed, as it presents items found in old warzones. As anyone who's visited a real battleground or military training area will know, there's a lot there that it is wisest not to meddle with... but copious details and options are provided to cope with those who do meddle, like your average player-character. Several options provide scope for a whole encounter or even side-adventure.

The final table covers items found on wasteland savages. Many of the things they carry are downright odd, and there's quite a lot of potential for fun with these items... and some are quite unpleasant!

A useful collection, giving a good balance between things that are useful, some quite bizarre stuff... and a fair few that are both!

One Day Digs 1 and 2 Double Feature
by David b. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/12/2014 13:05:14
Brandon Goeringer has made quite a radioactive splash with his latest contribution to Will McAusland's wonderful game, containing all things apocalyptic!

The adventures are original, well written and are short enough to get you through one good session of gaming. The maps and art only make this gem that much more of a must have for TME!

I highly recommend the game, and products available. It's filled with wonderful art, and one of the better, if not best game systems in the genre! Will definitely knows how to back a system with free downloads, and pay what you want adventures, and he's smartly grabbed a new and up and coming, though slightly mutated Goeringer to help bring the masses a rich gaming experience!

One Day Digs 1 and 2 Double Feature
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 07/11/2014 11:00:17
Designed to introduce new players to The Mutant Epoch (perhaps at a convention or game store), the new One Day Digs line opens with a 'double feature' of TWO short adventures. Of course, you could use one to start off a campaign, or drop them in to an existing one, as you see fit.

The first adventure, Blood for Bellridge, sends the party to visit Bellrigde, home of one of their friends. Only its on fire when they get there! The local militia are all dead and the township's best technician has been kidnapped. Can the party trounce the bandits and get the techie back?

It's a simple set-up and straightforward to resolve, yet presents a coherent story with potential for further development should you choose to use it that way.

The second adventure is called Feast of Freaks. In this, the party takes on a mission to locate and return stolen goods (plus the boat they were on and the crew if they can manage it) that has gone missing from a riverboat that has failed to arrive on schedule. Again, it's a case of tracking the miscreants down and raiding their base, again it is nicely-put together and comes over as a 'proper' game not merely a demo.

Both are well-resourced with good maps of the respective bad guys' bases. There are notes for locating these adventures within The Mutant Epoch world or they can be run as is. Nice way to get people involved in the game.

One Day Digs 1 and 2 Double Feature
by Chad K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/11/2014 10:47:49
I am a huge fan of Mutant epoch. Im Blood Axe on the game forums. I have every Mutant epoch book out so far & will continue buying every single one. A great post-apoc game rivaling Gamma World & Metamorphosis Alpha.
The art is great as always! These short adventures are fun for a night or two of gaming. Great stuff!!

Handcrafted Dungeons:: Basic Dungeon Tiles set 2
by Patrick V. R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/30/2014 13:43:22
As beautiful as the first set and even better now that both sets have a VTT option. If you take your table or VTT battle maps seriously, then this is the set for you.

Fantasy Clip Inks:: Spot Art set 1
by Mark T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/02/2013 12:09:43
As with all Outland Arts clip art products I've purchased, this is an excellent collection; a great variety of images in a consistent style. Kudos also for providing the full license details and legible preview images up front! Lots of clip-art packages could take a lesson from the Outland Arts products in this regard.

Junk-Mobster: Creatures of the Apocalypse 4
by Benjamin M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/31/2013 15:47:04
The creature described in this supplement is quite well detailed. The inclusion of a extra mutation chart and the treasure chart make the Junk-Mobster an extra valuable item as you can always use the treasure table with another creature, or just as a spare chart for a ruin.
The description says how the creatures use their attacks, and gives hints as to how they behave and act in both attack and actions towards their own race and others. It also gives the motives they may have to attack a settlement, and hints to how they might think.

The Mutant Epoch
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 08/12/2012 18:56:50
WHAT WORKS: Random tables for EVERYTHING just shy of an adventure generator (which seems like an odd oversight, given the amount of random rolling). Mutations for all the monsters, flexibility in the setting, tons of support.

WHAT DOESN’T WORK: If you hate random rolls and feel like you need a lot of game balance, I’m not sure this game is for you. The setting, as presented in the Hub rules, is nothing you haven’t seen before.

CONCLUSION: My advice? Roll up a bunch of characters and have fun. Don’t worry about game balance, don’t worry about stuff making sense…for pure gonzo PostApoc fun, Mutant Epoch is one of the better options I’ve read. It doesn’t have the heavy metaplot/back story of Reclamation or Hell on Earth, but it has a lot of cool, old school stylings without being tied to a D&D base. If you know what you wanna do with a PostApoc game, but not HOW you want to do it, get this and go nuts.
