Just ran a one-shot of octaNe, from Memento Mori Theatricks. It's a RPG from 2004 described as a "psychotronic game of post-apocalyptic, trash-culture America!" It's set in a pulpy, gonzo version of a post-apocalypse America, clearly inspired by a mixture of Mad Max, Six-String Samurai, and pretty much any B-Movie from the last century. Imagine … Continue reading octaNe: mini-review and character sheet for the B-movie post-apocalypse.
Ran my first one-shot of Vaults of Vaarn, the OSR science fantasy RPG zine. It's set in a far future wasteland Earth, littered with the technological remains of advanced super-civilizations, under a dying red sun. It's very much in the tradition of the Dying Earth sub-genre. It's sort of Numenera mixed with Gamma World. It … Continue reading Vaults of Vaarn – Fillable Character Sheet & Pregens
I've been gradually working on my post-apocalyptic hex crawl The Shabby Land. As I design each hex, I've been trying to keep each location succinct, evocative, and to the point. This is how my favorite OSR hex crawls handle it, and I'd like to follow their example. However, some locations will require a little more … Continue reading Shabby Land: The Adjudication Pits of Barter-Mart
This is the second in my series of sample hexes for The Shabby Land, my upcoming post-apocalyptic hexcrawl zine for Cepheus Atom. Here's the first one I did. Here are all of my Shabby Land posts.

I've been continuing my work on The Shabby Land - my post-apocalypse hexcrawl for Cepheus Atom. I've been maxing my own custom hex icons. Here's the current map for the players:
I've been putting together a hexcrawl zine for the post-apocalypse RPG Cepheus Atom. Cepheus Atom is a stripped-down, simplified version of the Traveller/Cepheus Engine ruleset, set in a slightly gonzo apocalypse. Basically, it's Traveller: Gamma World. My character sheets are available here. I've been making a hexcrawl for Cepheus Atom called The Shabby Land. I … Continue reading PAX Station Theta: A sample hex for a post-apocalypse hexcrawl.

I'll be running a one-shot of Tiny Living Dead, the zombie RPG, later this week. It's by Gallant Knight Games, and uses their house system, Tiny D6. This same system is used by Tiny Dungeon and Tiny Frontiers. It's a fun, light system that's great for one-shots. (it's also on the Bundle of Holding for … Continue reading Tiny Living Dead – Fillable Character Sheet
I've been working on a little zine describing a small hexcrawl set in a post-apocalypse, probably for Cepheus Atom. I'll probably include stats for other RPGs as well.
I finally got to run a one-shot of Cepheus Atom, Stellagama Games' post-apocalypse version of the Cepheus Engine. It's a fun, light little system designed to run Gamma World-style games using Traveller-style rules. Cepheus Atom doesn't have a built in setting, so I threw together the Shabby Lands, a small hexcrawl. I'm thinking of cleaning … Continue reading Cepheus Atom – Pregen Characters
