Legends of Gath #35; There is a Cloud

I'd like to be in Gath the day it starts raining. That'd be pretty nice. Someday the misery has to end, right?

Legends of Gath #34; The Holy Blade of Judge Ehud

"His bowels discharged." I think I have a new favorite Bible verse, fellas.

Legends of Gath #33; Second Floor: Kitchenware, Tools and Shadowy Death

Level two of the two level bomb shelter. I think there is tremendous opportunity for weird, underground excursions in Gath. Fallout-style vaults or mutated mutants a la Planet of the Apes leaps to mind.

Legends of Gath #32: First Floor: Men's Clothing, Housewares and Bathroom Hanging

Depression Era unemployment reigns, but I feel a bit isolated in my grave concern over the economy and the ripple effects of all of this. I guess I should not be surprised that I feel out of step. I like to draw pictures of bomb shelters and write about an Old Testament apocalypse set in the American Southwest. Maybe I should just relax. Poppy, who was sent by the Internet to watch over Gath, says, "I believe that everything's okay."

PS: If you can plug it in somewhere, PCs can use the hair dryer and wear the RayBan's to add +2 to Cha. If you have to carve your way through a mad wilderness, you might as well look good doing so.

Legends of Gath #31; What's That Smell?

"The good thing about no soap is that you can smell hijackers a mile off." I think that's what Eli, played by Denzel Washington, says in the Book of Eli before a bunch of freaks try to ambush him. Fantastic film that has inspired me greatly.

The scene in question:

PS: I meant to write that on a 2-6 the Cleric detects the ambush and initiative proceeds normally. On a 1 the mutants get a free round of movement/attacks due to surprise.

Legends of Gath #30; Papa Baby Head

I think this freak lives in the overturned van at e10, where he eats decade old gov't cheese. Also, add "freakish plumbing" and "nauseating disabilities" to the Gath drinking game.

Legends of Gath #29; Jonah the Fisherman

I have a certain distrust of the whole concept of "metaplot," but the renewal of the land and the return of the sea is a thematic element I'd like to explore.

Mail Call: Dispatches from Gath

I got a letter from Brutorz Bill over at the Green Skeleton Gaming Guild today. If you are not on his mailing list get on it, because the man writes about Gath better than I do. Seriously! He developed an idea for wasteland mail carriers that I am so going to steal. And the crazy dead lady with knitting needles! Priceless.

Legends of Gath #28; I am the DJ

Slobbering Cannibal can now be added to the list of Gath catchphrases.
