Monday Mutant 15 is here! Arm-Gunn



From the survivors, you’ve heard stories of these brutes. Heard of their rock spitting lower arms and terrible jaws. You’re aware of their bloodthirsty nature, tendency to form ranks with skullocks, moaners and other savage muties to annihilate entire villages, but nothing prepared you for this.

You now stand at the edge of their territory, and after tracking the pack of arm-gunn marauders, you and your team have come to the end of the line. Up on that mound... are those people on those rebar shafts and wooden stakes? And... what’s that next to those skulls? An assault rifle just hanging on a pipe?



Grab your copy of the arm-gunn at the ‘Pay What You Want’ price or check out our growing line of source books and adventures.

Wave Lurker: Monday Mutants 14 just released!



What’s that in the damn water? That fin! It’s coming toward us!”

Like so many beasts of the Epochian new era, the people of this age call the terrifying new creatures by some physical feature or behavior the mutie beast displays. These are straightforward, no bullshit descriptions, something that the various humanoid strains can relate to other people with few words, which is often important when a watcher on a wall or barge deck must make their cry of alarm. With the shriek of “Wave Lurker!” everybody aboard a crude scrap-built cargo ship or junk walled village knows what is coming for them. Once the alarm is given, people can either grab the right weapon, dash to their battle stations, flee to a secure area, or pray to their wasteland god for admittance to the afterlife.

Introducing the ever hungry, fast moving, reptilian wave lurker. These aquatic predators patrol the seas, lakes and swamps of the Mutant Epoch era, appear in various sizes, and like a sea lion, can drag themselves up onto the deck of a barge or shore to go after their prey. They can be encountered both in their typical form, or as mutant freaks to inflict even more mayhem and terror on hard pressed humanity.

This is our 14th Monday Mutant release and the 2nd in our follow-up dozen for the Mutant Epoch (TME) Tabletop RPG. It’s a biggie, too, with a few extra half page illustrations and a wide range of size stat blocks from the tiny, dog sized hatchlings to the barge sized colossal adult! We will add another nightmarish oddity each Monday until we add this next dozen to the collection. Once we get to 24 muties, we’ll put them all, and a few never seen mutie freaks, into a PDF and print bestiary!

This supplement, written and illustrated by the creator of TME, William McAusland, includes the main artwork as a player handout sheet and both a d10 mutation and d20 specialty loot table. Dive into post-apocalyptic adventure today and grab your copy of the wave lurker at the always affordable ‘Pay What You Want’ price.

Here’s a glimpse of this 8 page PDF:

As with all Monday Mutants, the Wave Lurker stats can be easily corrupted for use with another game system, yet it handles best using the fast-paced Outland System used by The Mutant Epoch RPG.

Dog Daze just Released!

 

You’re on the run in the weeds and wreckage... and you aren’t alone. You’re being tracked, being surrounded, and likely the next meal for the hounds of the wastes. Your goal is to get to the excavator support town of Pitford, but the coming night, impending junk storm, and bizarre beasts of the scrub-land make the odds of that very remote. Getting off the surface might be your only hope.

Challenge Yourself
Grab your dice, a pencil, and your character sheets and immerse yourself in hours of unpredictable, epic adventure. See if your character can survive and if not, our condolences, so come join the Epochian community online and share your casualties by using the hashtag #DogDazeKIA on Instagram, twitter, or other social media.

This fast-paced, highly re-playable module can be used as a training ground for those new to the Outland System. Likewise, sections of this book can be inserted into a game master’s own dig sites and encounters, or slid into other published TME adventures. Only minor, 'on the fly' tweaks are needed to convert Dog Daze into a GM directed quest.

Spoiler Alert
If you intend to play this adventure, don’t flip through the pages too far because this is a heavily illustrated game book and some scenes might give away surprises.

What's Inside?
204 Illustrations • 3 GM’s only Maps also inserted as 100 mini-maps • 240 Pages • 5 New Creatures • 3 New Relics • Plus, SOE (Society of Excavator) members can freely download all the maps, relics and critters.

Where can you get it?
Softcover print book $26.99 at Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/0994923775

PDF $11.99 at Gumroad (where we earn 95% commission and you get the same download!) https://outlandarts.gumroad.com/l/OEnBxs

PDF $11.99 at Drivethrurpg.com https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/379921/Dog-Daze

DOG DAZE Arrives Tomorrow, December 7th

 


9:30 PM PST Dec 6. After the untimely demise of my main computer, disruption of the recovered hard drive, hasty muster of another computer, software and file loading, print formatting and font issue, re-dos and fixes, and nearly every other sort of calamity to which a book's release in print and PDF, might suffer, it is all resolved. It's done after a years and a half of work.

The web site is ready to update with the new files, the PDF sample standing by, PDFs and the array of cover mocks ups, thumbnails, and web links at hand. Tomorrow, Dec 7th 2021, Dog Daze will be released on Amazon (softcover print book), Gumroad, (PDF sales where we earn 95%), and of course drivethrurpg.com

This is a huge, 240 page solo adventure with 204 illustrations, although can easily be converted to a regular, GM conducted scenario.

Standby, Epochians. After two years , new content has arrived.

Now full focus on the Expansion Rules. WM

 Hello Epochians, I'll be at another Goodman Games hosted virtual convention this weekend, November 5th -7th and when I'm not out walking the dog, sleeping, or eating, you'll find me at Empire of the Cyclops Con around the artist's Alley.


There are a few other illustrators and vendors for this DCC/5e event including an arcade where you can play old video games on your computer. It's free I hear, for you to come over to gather.town, make a quick character and  use your computer's camera and mic to explore the maps, tavern and main convention area. This system doesn't seem to like phones and tablets all that much but does offer limited capabilities. So stop on by and say hello. Even if we don't chat, you should check this format out because it's something I'd like to do for The Mutant Epoch community. WM




Here's the link:

Have a great weekend, Will

As many of you know I'm also an artist for #Goodman #Games as my 'day job'. I'll be a vendor at Empire of the Cyclops Con this coming weekend. It's DCC 5e focused, and I'll be selling original DND art, but keen to meet TME players. It's a paid event, ($5 I think for the whole weekend).
