On the Gauntlet Blog today I talk about my reskin of Mutant: Year Zero for a Sid Meier Alpha Centauri rpg. One of my face to face groups had chosen that a couple of months ago. I figured I had time to put that together given my time off for surgical recovery. Cut to my mad rush to get stuff put together from last Thursday onwards.
This post focuses on characters. I went with nine possible roles, stealing liberally from various games using the Mutant Engine. But I also added in some new elements. Each character also choose a faction they belong to, which gives them some additional stuff and helps set the stage for the colony itself. I’m pretty happy with how it ran at the table and I hope others might find some useful bits there.
