Quick Note - Mutant Future

I recently picked up the free, no-art version of Goblinoid Game's "Mutant Future" and I must say that I'm having fun with it. First please remember that I am relatively a kid in the Hobby having only 12 years under my belt. I missed out of the Golden Age of gaming and products like the original Gamma World (I own 2 of the 4e box-sets which often get brought out as a party game) and have since really only been involved in the traditional fantasy branch of the hobby (seriously, anyone have a good space opera game going?). So finding this (oddly enough thanks to Knotty Works) produced a mild happy dance from me.

As many of my readers know from the various Usarm games I enjoy a certain level of Science Fantasy. Since coming into the hobby I've hunted down and obtained a copy of Expedition to the Barrier Peaks ... then since I only knew 3e at the time got completely lost ... and have often used golems as stand-ins for ancient robots.

I'm on my second read-through now and am hoping to gain a good idea of the game before the weekend's out.  Possibly enough to run a breakfast club one-shot down the road!


Note - I will say this has reminded me that I still have a long way to go before descending AC feels natural to me.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.
