Need Postapocalyptic stuff...

...give me your links and ideas...please.
...now I slide down the street
with no shoes on my feet
looking for brains to eat
I'm a zombie me...

Way Back, this Yahoo group was started for just this type of thing.

Didn't get a lot of involvement but still, a few useful odds and ends in the junk pile.

Not directly related to pen and paper gaming, but the The Vault, at fallout.wikia.com, is a wiki for all things Fallout related.

Try Deadlands... or possibly Rifts.

Actually, one of the more unique post apocalypse games I played in was Gorkamorka. It was an Ork themed miniature game from ages ago. Basically, you have Orks throwing down over a theological arguement (which Ork god their rebuilt ship looked like) after the orks crashed on the planet. Lots of looting, crappy looking post-apoc vehicles, and a really unique enjoyable theme.

Another post-apocalyptic game worth mentioning is OctaNe. It's got a rather unique feel to it; a mish-mash of Mad Max, Six String Samurai, Spaghetti Westerns, El Santo, Japanese monster films...to quote from the book:

Picture if you will, the Old West.

Rugged cowpokes, black-mustachioed banditos, plucky frontier gals, and cheroot-chawin' gunslingers. Wild mustangs, high desert plains, and dust clouds on the horizon.

Now jump forward a hundred years and add rock-n-roll music, classic cars, and the neon-lined streets of Sin City. Still not enough? Add 1980's heavy metal, cult science fiction films and B-movies, Mexican wrestlers, and post-apocalyptic fashions. Take every pulp cliche, bend it 90 degrees and set it to a blistering soundtrack.

That's OctaNe, baby.


The system is pretty easy to learn, it leans more towards the PDQ side of the scale. Check it out:

Nice salvaging rules in abandoned places: water, food, ammo etc.

Zombie Run. Available from PEG. Not a free download, but if you run the whole thing, well worth the investment. Plus, it has the search and salvage rules.

Remeber, zombies = environmental hazard, not mooks.
