OKay, I admit I'm kinda slow. I just discovered Gamma World, just to discover that it's kinda dead. So sad!
I've tried signing up for the WPN, but when I sign it, it just sits there and keeps loading the sign-in progress bar over and over.
It there any way for someone to email the WPN "Convention Pack"? Or the Pax Extraterrestria adventure?
I also only recently purchased this version of Gamma World- after reading about how easy to use the rules are and how quickly and easily you could convert it to other genre of games. I'm really liking the way that you can slap together an enjoyable game in a matter of a few hours rather than days of planning for D&D-based games. I've already built most of a solo campaign for my wife to go from levels 1-3, and am planning to carry it out as long as she is interested.
I enjoy the campy nature of the game- it's a refreshing chance from the gritty world of Fallout, which I dearly love as a setting but feel is too dark for a lot of folks. The randomness of creating a character is actually a big draw for me; you don;t get to choose how you start out in real life, now do ya? I have house-ruled a bit out of the box (pun intended) like being able to salvage things off defeated enemies and adding in medium armor.
What's the WPN (I shy away from Wizards' online stuff) and Pax Extraterrestria?
