Gamma World Game Day 10/23
« on: October 07, 2010, 11:23:08 AM »
Has there been any interest/talk about Gamma World Game Day that's on the 23rd? Jess and I played the Gamma World Demo at PAX Prime and it was pretty fun. I was just wondering if either location was planning on hosting it (and if anyone was interested in playing it besides me).

I dunno if you were there when Todd and I were talking about it...
It's like a post world destroyed carzy merge of the universe D&D based game.
Character gen is random, you pick 2 random things and that is what you are. I was a speester yeti, Todd was a psionic cockroach or something, another kid was a flaming rat swarm. You still roll dice and get attacks.
You get random cards that give you a new ability through the game since you are constantly mutating or something.

It is fun to check out and play, but I can't imagine (personally) playing a whole campaign. Dark Sun is as far off of the typical fantasy path I get.
Me: Mending isn't healing, if Todd's shirt rips I can "mend" it.
Kurt: That's just a racial ability you have.

WotC posted a three part youtube video of the Gamma World seminar at GenCon.

I ordered the Gamma World Game Day kit and would like to run it or have someone run it. It falls on the same day as a very large Warhammer Tournament in Plainville that might need me there. I'll know better in a few days what the details are and if I'll have a volunteer GM to run it in Abington if I can't be there for it.

I'm really excited about this game. Gamma World was one of those games when I was a kid that I always wanted to play but never got around to. I'm hoping they do a good job with it.

This might alread be clear, but Gamma World Game Day will only be run in Abington.

Here's an awesome (and humorous) overview of Gammaworld:

I actually would have included HoL in the list of "Gammaworld" games.

Question:
Does anyone know what time this will be run in Abington? I have a hair appointment I may have to cancel if it runs into Gamma Time.
Me: Mending isn't healing, if Todd's shirt rips I can "mend" it.
Kurt: That's just a racial ability you have.
