Gamma World 1st edition – Fillable Character Sheets & Artifact sheet

Best RPG illustration ever

I’m in the middle of preparing a one-shot game of the original 1978 edition of Gamma World for next week.  I ran this game for years when I was a kid in the 80s, so it was a big nostalgia kick to start reading through it again.

For character sheets, I’ve taken the sheets Patrick M. Murphy posted on his site and made a fillable version:


You can click on the portrait area of the PDF to insert an image.

If a player picks up a technological device from the old world, it’s not assumed the PC can immediately figure out its function or how to use it. GW has a fun little subsystem to allow PCs to experiment with an artifact.

There is a flowchart that the players move across randomly by rolling a D10. They can either eventually figure it out, or possibly cause it to malfunction or even explode.

The three flowcharts in the book are a little small & crude, so I’ve started working on larger, nicer versions.

Here’s the first one  – it’s just for one chart (chart A)


Eventually I’ll get around to the other two.

  1. Awesome, thanks for sharing the character sheet. I’ve meaning to do the same thing for years, so thanks for helping my laziness pay off! LOL
