Excavator Monthly Magazine issue 4 hits the market!

This one took a bit longer on account of the many free player handouts we had to create to go along with an article on creating them. This is the best issue yet, and we welcome Danny Seedhouse as our new writer and designed the new Acrobatics skill featured in this issue. Danny has done some stuff for the SOE member's area of the site and along with Graeme Hallett are working on a robust setting book and accompanying adventure... more on that later. Graeme also shared and article with us for issue 4 on the causes of Factional Warfare in The Mutant Epoch. If you get a copy of the mag, please let us know your thoughts on it and what you'd like to see in future issues.

Anyhow, sorry for the delay in getting this issue out. We are now busy at work on issue 5.

Here is the promo text for Issue 4:

What drives your character? Why risk life and limb in the God forsaken ruins and wastelands of The Mutant Epoch? In issue 4 we offer 50 goals and obsessions to motivate your post apocalyptic character, and much more.

EM-4 includes articles on how many adversaries a GM should throw at PCs, dice rolling methods to speed up game pace, creating handouts along with links to a heap of free sheets, the bonus offer method of character generation, more NPCs, wicked relics: Grenade Mat and Laser tipped bullets, plus three freaky creatures: the Waste Grazer, Pus Worm and Hackoid. Articles on the causes of PA factional warfare, agreed upon rendezvous, making coffee for Mel Gibson, and a new skill: Acrobatics, round out this content rich publication.
