GamaNera 2 Mining Gamma World for Cypher Systems.
Well I was so pleased with the response to the first part of this blog I jumped right in and began making more of these cards.
Real life sent this follow-up blog a hard right hook. As I became sick for a bit and then the holidays hit. But the best part about blogs is that you can always come back to it later. So I Look forward to revisiting this idea again.
Recursion Name: Gama Terra
Laws: Exotic, Mad Science,Psionics
Playable Races: Human, Mutant
Foci: Any Fitting
Age & Size: Developed Recursion
Earth. After the apocalypse. Never mind the radiation—you’re gonna like it here
Gamma Terra is a savage land of adventure, where the survivors of some mythical future disaster must contend with radioactive wastes, ravaged cities, and rampant lawlessness. Against a nuclear backdrop, heroic scavengers search crumbled ruins for lost artifacts while battling mutants and other perils.
This is the second part of my blog about Gamma World cards being brought to use in your Numenera or The Strange RPG games. After the first blog several of the questions I received were asking how Mutation cards might come into play.
Since there was a lot of interest in Gamma Worlds mutations I took a closer look at them this time. One of the first things that I noticed was that many of the mutations in Gamma World can be found in Numenera as well. For this reason I have decided to take a look at these cards in the light for use in an active Recursion for The Strange RPG.
With the mutations they were not that much more difficult to convert then cyphers and artifacts. With Mutations I wished to put them into category’s already listed in Numenera. Making it easy for any who would like to swap cards for current mutations easily.
So then what would be the best use of these mutation cards in your games? I would suggest the best used would be in your games of The Strange RPG.
Or in a recursion’s for your own creation or any other Gamma World like or Post Apocalypse recursion’s. Without a doubt they make the perfect mutation deck for your Gama Recursion’s as well as several Super Hero style settings would seem a good fit as well.
It was pretty cool to see even the co-author of Gamma World and The co-author of The Strange RPG give his stamp of approval on the idea. Thank you for the vote of approval Bruce Cordell!
