  1. What a gonzo universe you paint! Love it! It is encouraging to me. I am now returning to RPG after a long time away and experiencing the joy of creation again. So let me get this straight...You play these type of scenarios in games all the time?
    Lucky them!

    1. To be honest all this is prep for games i will be running probably for next year. With enough tables I can sandbox play easily.

      It also lets me use all my gamma world stuff.Am playtesting this stuff now for a local con.

      The Exile Island stuff has been my game for last 18 months. Im running Cthulhu 1490 and playing 2 dnd games just to try editions right now.

  2. I read, but don't comment enuf .. .
    sure creative genius .. . how do you come up with your d100 lists ...

  3. I have to hand it to you. . .pure creative genius... I am lucky if I can come up with d12 random ''themed ' events..

    1. well if u have a request for anything interesting i could give a go i would consider it...

  4. steal from what i read but its also training
    i found d20 wasn't cutting it - more you do better you get - only d1000 curses was hard

    i read 2000AD lots as a kid
    comic and pulp mag covers
