The world used to be a paradise. The sages say everyone had plenty of food, and robots that served their every need, from cleaning to picking the fleas off of people. No one was ever sad, as wondrous medicine kept everyone happy. Coke, Pepsi, Starbucks, and the rest of the pantheon of gods watched over everyone, but every person were as gods themselves. This came to an end. No one remembers precisely how. Most agree there was a war, even though nobody know what it was fought over, or who participated in it, but what precisely ended it all remains a mystery. Weapons of mass destruction? Climate changes? Massive pollution? Robot or genetically engineered slave rebellion? Terrorists? Crazy artificial intelligences? Invading aliens? No one knows, although it's pretty certain it featured some really awesome explosions.
Even so, there were survivors. Nobody knows how long ago the apocalypse took place, but the world has begun to heal. A few cities have even been formed, and technological progress is finally being made once again. Why, your grandfather might remember a time when people had to hunt with bow and arrow, but this new fangled black powder is really the bee's knees. Even so, the world hasn't escaped the ravages of the End yet. Pure humans are few, with a far greater amount of mutants around, but even sentient plants and animals exist. Artifacts from the Ancients still appear from time to time, bringing with them wealth and prosperity or death and destruction.
Welcome to Gamma World.
We're a new MUX based on Gamma World 4th Edition. The first real post apocalyptic RPG to be published, inspiring many of the RPGs and CRPGs that followed. Still, you youngsters can just think of it as "you know, sorta like Fallout." The MUX is centered around Glowtown, a town near the nation of Bonparr. You can play a pure human, altered human, mutated animal or a sentient plant. Venture into the wasteland to encounter metaphors of the dangers of technological progress, and then shoot them for XP and domar.
