Introducing a new free rpg from The ChaosGrenade! Gonzo Mutoid Wasteland Crust Punks is my love letter to Gamma World 7th edition, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rick & Morty, Adventure Time and other bonkers multi-dimensional science fantasies.
This year has been crazy for me. I got married back in January, and now we’re expecting a kid sometime after our anniversary. One of those crazy situations where the world at large seems to be on fire, yet on a personal level I have so much to celebrate.
This weekend kicked off a new campaign for some friends and a couple of their kids. I’ve ran the youngins before, but they’ve never really settled in for long term play (and hardly ever got to play with adults other than their parents.)
So, despite my initial criticisms of it being a cheap fad in the indie OSR scene, The Black Hack has pretty much infected me with how I love to run my games. This past week I’ve been compiling together my own playbook for all the ideas, house rules, and add-ons I want to use as my “core” system.
The Mutant class in The Rad Hack is pretty flexible — you can easily be a mutant animal, plant, or some other strange humanoid. Still, I’ve had friends, followers, and even my spouse talk about how they wished the “Mutant Plant” was a class on its own. I decided to homebrew my own variant Plant class by re-skinning powers that already existed in the game. Enjoy!
This is a play report for Gutterpunk Sprawl-Crawl, a play-by-post campaign using The Rad Hack. This setting entails violence, drug use, and depraved morals — consider this your NSFW warning.
