The thought that the moon could throw a planet out of orbit is also ridiculous. The chance of the moon hitting another anything is one in an umpteenth of a trillion's billionth.

Then, considering that if you take the sun and it takes about one half of the paper up, the moon would be represented by a single pixel on the page if that. So I doubt the moon would extinguish the sun.

Also, it would only change our solar system, the universe consists of quadrillions of galaxies and each galaxy may contain millions of solar systems. In the grand scheme of things, the event would be to the universe as a single molecule of dust would be to us.

Eventually. Right now it is a side project, but eventually it will be a main project.

Well since the Apoc tables done, what's the main project?

You guys should really consider the moon idea as a race I really like and I'm not playtesting PH righ tnow but I would if you made the Lunar Dudes.

Seems like a lot of thought was put into it before it was writen if all that was achieved within a couple hours.

And for anyone thats interested i'll give you a link to another forum where I have the story I submitted posted.

http://silverpen.proboards.com/index.cg ... 357&page=1

There are several differences. most notable is time, this has a more modern/near future air about it in terms of technology. Second is the event that takes place here is not the event that takes place in PH. With a bit of tweaking to the setting it could be made to fit the Marauders.

Also, feel free to join the silver pen community and offer your own works or opinion. The more the merrier.
The Rule Monkey is always right. Always.

Are they still doing this game? I'm gonna play test it soon, the only reason I couldn't play it before was I couldn't get my hands on some D12s

As thehy say, it is currently a side project, but I dont think they would mind you playtesting anyway.

I'll pitch in with an odd idea: maybe the Galagido could have mutated-animals as units in their army, and form a kind of bond with them. I could definitely see them taking "totem animals" and getting bonuses to their army for what animal they prefer, maybe even having inter-tribe fights about it. Maybe something for WYSIWYG could be stuff like the Space Wolves have, wearing animal-skins and cut-off tails and such to show that group has affiliated with whatever animal they've bonded to. You could have bears, big cats, wolves, giant bugs, and whatever else. The furs and animal theme would work for both the no armor and heightened senses concepts, and give them a way to be different within their own faction ("Oh crap, that's a Wolf Galagido tribe. All right, guess I need to watch out for flanking moves...").

Also, it's pretty funny to see all of the "This sounds a lot like Rifts/Fallout/Gamma World/etc!" posts. Be the same deal if you made it fantasy, too. "This sounds just like D&D/LotR/etc!"
"Wot? Bah, dat trukk ain't blakk. It'z red! Goff red! Dat red'z so proppa it'z blakk!"

Not sure if this is the right place for this but I just felt like making a quick story about this game because I'm really looking forward to it. Who knows maybe you could use it for something (no idea what).

“That was a pretty big biostorm; thank God we were only clipped by it.” Celine said while looking at the devastation the freak tempest had wrought on the already scarred earth surrounding them.
“Before you thank God, remember that he was the one who blew the damn world up.” William replied from the head of the trio.
“At least he was kind enough to rip this forest out of our way. Any of that water dripping off the trees would have killed us, or worse.” Bill chimed from the back as he stepped over a fallen branch.
The group walked amidst a desecrated landscape, earlier that day having been a forest, now nothing more than a diseased and mutating swamp. Their rubber boots reached up to their knees and squeaked as they trudged through puddles of muck, heading ever onward towards what they suspected would now be an empty village. William rarely glanced at his compass, having visited and escorted trading parties to the town on many occasions.
“We should be there soon,” William murmured “load and ready.”
Amidst the uprooted trees whose branches still stood like a screen of green higher than the heads of the party, magazines were pushed into rifles and cocked. After readying his Zeus rifle and putting it on safe Will drew his sidearm. It was a piece of junk, but the piece of junk that allowed him to survive before being picked up by the group calling themselves The Shield. He had never managed to find any new ammunition for the pistol but cocked it all the same before putting it back in its holster at his hip.
Though the village couldn’t be seen because of the plant corpses in the way, after The Event a massive section of land in the area broke away and shifted to form a sheer cliff face and where a sliver of the raised earth fell back into place, rested the village. Nestled in the rock face, it not only benefited from the natural walls that protected all but its front but it was also easy to find, the group only having to move towards an obvious crack in the landmass to find it.
Clearing the fallen forest the Shields saw the front gate of the village, nothing more than a tall wooden fence with a large door that barely stood upright as it hung from a single hinge. The trio grasped their rifles tightly and moved towards the seemingly abandoned village in a dead silence, listening for any activity from any survivors inside or, more likely, any marauders intent on pillaging the site before they could. Now under the shadow of the cliff, they reached the entrance to what promised to be a treasure trove.
Standing against the fence next to the way in William made sure Celine and Bill were ready to move. With a tap on his thigh Will raised his rifle and turned the corner, his partners following behind in quick succession, each one of them scanning the environment. There were a half dozen homes in the village but only two remained standing, the storm having blown most of them over and pushing a hill of mud into the intact buildings at the very back of the town which were built up against the cliff.
The three soldiers moved as one towards the nearest ruined house, and proceeded to hop from rubble to rubble until they found themselves just outside the two remaining homes of the town. One of the buildings had been completely sealed off, its entrance blocked by a mound of wet earth, while the second was only partially obstructed.
It was Celine who noticed that it was not debris but human limbs that stuck out from the mud at the base of the house; though they flowed slowly downward within their graves they would provide the best steps into the building.
“Step on the bodies and don’t lose your footing. You face-plant into that mud and I’ll shoot you. Please do me the same courtesy.” Will whispered to the others before moving out. He had seen too many times what happened to people who even so much as wet an exposed finger into puddles of tainted biostorm waste, and knew too well that a round to the skull was a cure often begged for by victims.
Will walked cautiously up the slippery mound making sure his boots took purchase on an arm or leg sticking straight out of the muck.
Crunch.
William looked back at Celine and Bill wondering if they had broken the bone of a body part they were stepping on, getting only stern glares back in the direction of the entrance.
Crunch.
The team lined up against the wall and readied to enter the building.
Crunch.
There was a tap on Will’s leg and he turned the corner.
Crunch.
Standing in the doorway William came up against a hideously deformed beast, squeezing the trigger even as it took its attention away from its meal to gaze and growl at him. The creature’s fangs counted for nothing as the first round blew its muzzle off, the second and third making a pulp out of the rest of its face.
“What the hell was that?” Celine asked, pushing her way into the house.
“It’s their pet. Their God damned dog. Look.” William sighed as he pointed towards the ceiling, having noticed the drops falling down from it.
“Nothing but bad luck. They’d still be alive if the dog had just died instead of turning to… this.” Celine whispered under her breath as she inspected the massive body. “Killed by a leaky roof.”
“By a roof? No. That pup bit the hand that fed it and then fed on it. I take back my previous stance on God. He’s taken man’s best friend, our only friend left in this world, from us; God is twisted.” Bill said.
“Come on, let’s just see if we can find anything and get out of here.” Will said as he pulled on a horrible attempt at fake floorboards.
The hatch gave way and in the hidden space laid a rifle, not a Zeus by any means, but a functional older model along with enough ammunition to supply a fire team for a half dozen skirmishes and a stash of ration packs.
“Anything else of value is buried in the mud; we’ll have to wait a couple days so that the place dries out before we come back for the rest. Here.” William announced as he threw the now full pack on his back and passed a ration out to his comrades. “No one will know if we just have one.”
“Awesome. I was starving after the hike over here.” Bill said as he slung his rifle over his shoulder and tore open the sealed bag, stuffing what appeared to be green sticks into his mouth with a smile while walking out the door.
Pop.
Bill froze for second, green sticks still in hand and in the middle of the doorway. Looking to his side he noticed a small hole in the wall next to his head. Green sticks fell into the mud at his feet.
“Get the hell out of the open!” Will yelled, practically pushing him down the small slope leading up to the building before Celine unloaded her Zeus on the assailants.
While she managed to blow an arm off an attacker at the shoulder the raiders continued to put fire on the Shields’ position seemingly unaware of their original target that had crouched low to the ground at the base of a rubble wall in order to collect himself.
“Bill! We’ve got the ammo so we’re damn well gonna use it! About six men behind the ruin of the building in front of yours!” Will shouted as he unpacked his bag and threw Celine a fresh magazine.
From where he hid, Bill could hear a veteran among the marauders shouting fire orders, allowing them to pour constant rounds down range to keep William and Celine deep inside their improvised and crumbling bunker. Taking his weapon off safety Bill stood and, unlike the less powerful rifles his opponents bore, unleashed what sounded like a lightning storm in the enemy direction, drawing some fire to himself while others took to their cover. Seizing the opportunity both Will and Celine leaned into the doorway and spat a deluge of bullets on the few marauders who were still standing, landing enough shots to tear two apart.
Taking his rifle in one hand Bill grabbed the top of the waist high rubble and vaulted over it without hesitation, making it into what used to be a house and laying with his back against the wall on the opposite side. He could see both William and Celine, their weapons smoking and eyes down their sights as they waited for the enemy to make a move. With a nod Bill jumped over his cover and while closing the distance between the ruins he saw a pair of raiders rising to meet him. Having waited for that exact moment William and Celine fired simultaneously, decapitating one of the bandits as soon as his head came into view.
The other marauder however pressed on. Sprinting the ten feet between his cover and Bill’s the marauder was on him in an instant, swinging down on him with a crude axe. Sitting with his back against the wall the Shield caught sight of the attack and shifted out of the way as the stone blade buried itself into the wall where he had just been. Pointing his rifle straight up, Bill pulled the trigger and shot the rogue in the head, the corpse falling on top of him while oozing expired life all over the victor’s lap.
Pushing the dead man onto the mud and standing up Bill had failed to notice the hail of gunfire his partners had just let loose into the backs of the remaining two bandits as they tried to flee.
“Are you alright?” Will asked the blood covered soldier as he flipped one of the dead over with his boot and picked the man’s rifle and ammunition.
“I’m fine but I think that axe may have clipped me. I can’t tell with all the blood on me.”
“It’s obviously not that bad then.” Celine muffled as she tightened a bandage around her arm with her mouth.
A huge crack of thunder was heard off in the distance and the Shields saw the red clouds on the horizon.
“Haven’t we traded with a village near where that storm is?” Celine asked.
“Finish searching these guys so we can get going. We’ve got a busy day ahead of us.” William said, thanking God for all the treasures he left for him to find.

I tried to include a lot of the rules from the game into the story and cranked it out in around 45 minutes. If you want anymore for any reason I enjoy making them.
