Re: What is Year Zero in Mutant: Year Zero

The English language M:GAlpha doesn't seem to include any reference to how many years have passed since the red plague, at least not that I can recall or quickly find. But the blurb on the back cover begins, "01/19/2278, 3:47pm." So if this were to be shortly before the campaign begins, I'...

Re: Birds and Pigs and other animals

With a bit of fiddling, it's pretty simple to build new animal mutant breeds for yourself. All you need to do, as it says in genlab, is to pick a key attribute and a selection of animal powers. A couple of powers might deserve a new name more appropriate to the animal or a small twist, should a GM w...

Re: Experience points

A few examples from personal experience: 4) running in to Heal a broken buddy with only 1pt in Empathy yourself, giving away your last grub ration, using successes on a Move roll (to flee) on others but not yourself, using Manipulate in combat to draw an enemy's attention away from your buddy, any o...

Re: Rules for Mounts (like Bitterbeasts), as opposed to Vehicles?

Yes please, Tomas that would be very welcome! If space is going to be a continuing issue in ZCs though, perhaps you could put the rules up on drivethruRPG for us?

Thanks for putting up your translations, Fenhorn.

Re: Rules Question: Rot level, explored sector and Find the path

I believe mbrunet is referring just to the Rot Finder talent's stunt. But as written it only applies to that trip through the sector, so the rot level doesn't actually drop. This is where I'd allow the stalker another Find the Path roll to try for that stunt again the next time. We're perhaps a bit ...

Re: The Feral Effects chart - does it need a tweak?

Thanks for your response, Fenhorn.  Unless I'm being unfairly harsh, the 1 result can be permanent if the rest of the party fail their Heal attempts.  And for us it has come down to the very last character rolling their single remaining Instinct die to succeed in bringing someone back.  That chance ...

The Feral Effects chart - does it need a tweak?

My players and I are about half way through Escape from Paradise Valley (it's taken us a year thus far, meeting once or twice a month) and they recently came to me with a confession - the Feral Effects chart is putting them off.  Now it may be that we're just unlucky on the dice rolls -rare is the s...

Re: Supplements and Expansions - Connecting Your Gameworld

Have you started your grand campaign yet, Nigel? While the Big Smoke isn't truly coastal, London extends far enough that you could enlarge the zone map to the coast or sketch up a new one further down river if you prefer to keep the map contained. Or given that the water level has risen so much, you...

Experiences of the Mechatron ALPHA Preview.

Had a go with my copy of the Mechatron preview pdf two weekends ago and it's really got me excited to play. Especially the clever twists to an otherwise familiar ruleset that really make the robot PCs feel different to the living, breathing, all-too-often-bleeding characters in the preceding setting...

Re: Starting the story

My gaming group and I had a go with the example scenario last weekend.  Having played Year Zero and Genlab Alpha and being in love with the card decks as reference tools, I copied out the text sides of the Chassis Cards onto blank playing cards but that was all the preparation I made as GM besides r...
