61 Days Till GaryCon! I Want To Play... Gamma World
It was the late eighties at Grandma's house. Knowing that there would be a few stretches with nothing else to do, I brought my copy of the Dungeon Master's Guide with me to read. As I was flipping through the pages, I came upon a section about converting AD&D characters to another game produced by TSR called Gamma World. I had never heard of the game before and wondered what it was about. From what I could gather it was a game set in a post-apocalyptic world that used similar mechanics to D&D. Having grown up on shows like Thundercats and Max Headroom, the idea of playing in a that kind of setting intrigued me. Sadly, I could never find the game at any of my local game stores.
In recent times the closest I have come to Gamma World is downloading the PDF of Mutant Future. But since GaryCon is the home of old-school RPGs, I'm hoping to fit a game into my schedule and cross another title off my role-playing game bucket list.
