A Stroll Through Gamma World


A new year means a new campaign and the Dandies have kicked off 2011 with a romp through the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Gamma World. The game was DM'd by Everett Downing (left), but fueled by Lanesplitter's and Gordon Birsch.



Our pal Dovi gave us all electronic d20s for Christmas. They light up when you roll a natural 20. It's pretty sweet.


The party approaches a criminal outpost.

The best part about gaming with a bunch of artists is that you inevitably come out with some amazing character sketches. Here are a few from our first session:

The enigmatic conspiracy theorist Karnsen, played by Ross Dickenson. Sketch by me.



The gruff gelatinous mutant Grimm, played by Chris Chua. Sketch by Chris.



The genetically-engineered prescient, Dr. Eustace Plebe (aka "Slit"), played by yours truly. Sketch also by yours truly.



The cyrogenic super-computer Artech, played by Erick Tryzelaar. Sketch by Emma Coats.

Great sketches! Wish I could play stuff like that with fellow drawing buddies.

Ahh, how fun! Love these character sketches you guys did!

NEEERRRRRDDSSSS!!! ....... but serious, how do I get in on this??? I'm loving the idea of drawing your characters as you play the game. I wish my buddies and I did that when we played 40k..I MEAN ... spit and watched Football! Yea, that's what I meant to say...

Biersch, lad; BIERSCH for pete's sake. This is beer we're talking about here.

And someone already brought up the Warhammer reference, so no need to go into that.


"C'mon, natural 20. Baby needs a new sword of wounding..."

...And even though this message looks like spam - probably because it is - I thought you'd enjoy this gem of a movie trailer.

Munchanka said...

I stand corrected, Mr. Shockley. And, yes, that trailer looks awesome! They just don't make em like they used to.

Wish I would have been able to draw like this, when I was playing...
But I still would like to have one of those d20's! ^^
