Adventures of the Thunder Riders Vol. 1

The year is 325 after the “Great disruption”

Mankind faces an epic struggle for survival. The forces of nature have spun wildly out of control. Cities have crumbled, and mutated monsters have emerged to reclaim the earth. Nestled within the dangerous slithering valley lies Hope Canyon, the last bastion of civilization. This geological wonder has kept the few that have found shelter with it’s deep caverns, and underground rivers.

Surrounded and under constant threat from monsters, mutants, and other technological aberrations, the canyon inhabitants dug deeper in the caverns until they stumbled upon forgotten machines from a bygone age. They unearthed and repurposed them into weapons and vehicles to defend Hope Canyon from its surrounding threats. The chosen few who have taken up the fight are known as the Thunder Riders. In this savage land, only the Thunder Riders stand to defend the last hope of humanity against a world gone mad.

We’ll be playing four sessions on Thursday evenings (7pm-10pm Eastern time) in June.

Touchstones: Mad Max: Fury Road, Tank girl comics, 80’s Saturday morning cartoons like M.A.S.K. & Cadillacs & Dinosaurs.

Content Warning: This is a game that focuses on action, adventure, and gonzo super science in a post-apocalyptic setting.

Safety tools: We will be using X cards, lines and veils, and an open door policy. We can change these tools to whatever suits the table best. This game follows The Gauntlet Community Code of Conduct.
