I learned early this morning through the rumor mill that Wizards of the Coast has an unannounced release this fall for Gamma World. Apparently, it will be Character Creation Booster Cards, an optional set of random cards for Gamma World along the lines of the Alpha/Omega booster cards. In this case, the cards are a set of random skills and abilities. Players will no longer waste time rolling/assigning points to their ability or skill scores; they determine them by drawing Beta Creation Cards from their Beta Creation Decks. This enforces party cooperation and allows each character to shine in his own special way. You want to attack a monster with a melee weapon? Too bad unless you've drawn the Strength ability card! What lies behind the sealed security door? You'll never know unless the player who drew the Perception skill is willing to tell! Just imagine the possibilities!
I've also heard that WotC decided the price point for the the previous booster card packs was set too low. Each pack of the Character Creation Booster Cards will contain 8 random Beta Creation Cards and retail for $9.99.
