Post apocalyptic game idea, with a Kamandi twist.

     Long ago, several kings awoke to their kingdoms in turmoil. One of their number quickly turned on the rest, bending them to his corrupt will. Soon each turned on his people, destroying or twisting them to his whim. It is said the kings still live in their towers, meting out their own weird brand of justice. Perhaps some brave adventurer can go forth and free them and restore some balance to a dark and tortured world!

     Recently I have read some Kamandi comics (from DC), and now would like to run a post apocalyptic adventure. Basically the "kings" are AI's that become self aware, and one of them (who calls himself Tyranus) takes over the rest, soon twisting the world for several centuries. Some of them destroy life, others create new humanoid creatures like tiger-men or ape-men (like from Kamandi). I just need to decide on a system, either Mutant Future or Savage Worlds. Any opinions one way or the other, let me know.

One Hundredth Post!

     So here we are, number one hundred. Have to get the next couple installments of my Doctor Who game written up, which has been going great when we are able to play. I have taken existing classic stories and done a little set up or set them in a different country (Spearhead from Space in Russia?). I also took the amazing Big Finish audio story "Spare Parts" and ran the players through it. More on these things later!

     Next month is Gen Con and I will definitely be going, though only Saturday and Sunday. I am going to do more reporting on what I see there and maybe get an interview or two. I am really looking forward to it and to hope to maybe even post from the con! Be back soon, take care!
