Creatures of the Wasteland (revised) is, pardon the intentional pun, a blast from the past. After reading this document, I have to say that I really wish I would have had it, oh, say about THIRTY years ago when I first discovered the original Gamma World.
The book is filled with tons of new mutants to use in your Mutant future game, as well as a plethora of new mutations and other goodies that will keep any Mutant Lord happy for a very long time.
Derek Holland has proven time and again that he has quite the imagination. A lot of the creatures he’s created are mutants that I would use in a Mutant Future game, and many would fit quite nicely into any impending professionally produced adventures.
And then he has some very strange and outright silly mutants, ones that I would have to say are there more for flavor than anything else.
One thing I would really like to point out is the fact that this product isn’t JUST for use with the Mutant Future game. Those people who actually own the first and second edition Gamma world games will find it an invaluable resource.
For those who use systems like D20 Modern, this book could be used quite easily. Yes, it might take time to convert some of the creatures to be used in a D20 game, but just for source material and ideas, this book is a bargain at twice the price.
Very much worth picking up, whether or not you actually play or run Mutant Future.
