In those cases where you get boosted ability scores, they are really boosted - plus 10. Together, these mechanics call back to old-school days, with its random characters and its gonzo ideas. In general, the mutations are powerful and useful, and usually wahoo.
What they can agree on is the present, a world of mutants, poisons, and rampaging machines. Generally considered a failure, with some bright spots worth looking at. Gamma World 7 is full of monsters from the game's long history, including piles of 'bots and androids, the ever-popular hoop, badders, and more. The fiction writing is being paid on a patronage fee-scale with a guaranteed minimum. For example, at the beginning of the adventure you can't enter the castle in the city because you're a nobody.
The other big change from 4e is Gamma World 7's use of cards. Gamma World 7 entirely reversed that. Relic weapons ignore the first 5 points of non-relic armor of whatever kind. We're using pinterest to share art references, which you can view here: And Yi-Ting's illustration portfolio What is Fate Accelerated?

No clue why, but when you grow up with it, you don't notice it so much. What different races are there? Basically, the more risk you undertake, the more experience you get, regardless of whether it ends well or badly. Pure-strain humans are the stock humans from d20 and get those benefits, plus since they are adept with technology, they get Tech skills as class skills. See et al Why is there a link to Traveller here? It does not include print versions of the book, sheets, tokens or maps. Or maybe the beasts started it, animals that science had given human-like forms, human-like minds, and human-like hatreds. It remains one of my favourites because it is truly off it's rockers sometimes.
Both Baker and Cordell would end their work with the company in the early '10s, but one Gamma World supplement still lay ahead. Omega World is what it is. The machines started the war, wayward creations that rose up against their creators, rebels who destroyed those who had given them minds and electronic life. You can go ethereal, get displacement, have extra arms, or even energy drain. But as you build up your reputation, you might be allowed inside. Even sample starting gear is discussed.

The Arks look like court jesters for crying out loud! It would be fairly easy however, to change the defects to make them worth less points or require defects and mutations to balance out, so things aren't quite as ridiculous. Some people loved how much fun it was, while others hated the approach it took. There is a whole section on relic armor, weapons, drugs, and power cells.

Conclusions This is an amazing game. These weapons of the ancients can make you a warlord, a conqueror, or a hero, if you can find them and use them. It's Gamma World stripped down to the way many folks played it when they were thirteen --- the joy of making up an absurd character and travelling through a surreal landscape trying to survive and finding weird artifacts.
One problem with the game is that there is no index and only a small table of contents. These posts should be submitted to.
