As the rules progress at a decent pace I will add three new categories to this blog in order to highlight my sources of inspiration for Gaia Gamma. The three categories will be:
- Gamma Games: Roleplaying games (and occasionally maybe even boardgames) that I page through in order to find inspiration for cool additions to the Gaia Gamma rules. I own something like two dozen (probably quite a few more - I need to count them) roleplaying games that all are associated with some kind of apocalyptic setting... some more so, some less, that I will flip through in order to find stuff to cram into the 88 pages of Gaia Gamma. While flipping through them I will post short reviews, excerpts and links to interesting sites concerning those games.
- Gamma Movies: I love to watch DVDs and there a few ones out there that I also find inspiring for Gaia Gamma. Again you will get short reviews, opinions and links.
- Gamma Books: Again I own quite a number of books (thousands actually). Some of them are absolutely great sources for Gamma related inspiration and so far I have found very little out there on the web stirring Gamma fans towards these worthwhile resources. So again you will get a short review, opinions and some links to get you up to speed.
I in the past only rarely read them in detail (and even less tried to pick up the listed sources) but the older I get the more I seem to get interested in such lists. Thus Gaia Gamma also will have such a list and the three series above will help me to fill it with interesting tidbits.
As a side note you can get release 5 of the rules from the download section in the side bar, enjoy! (although I have to admit there is not that much new in it except for the new back cover - which BTW still has the "mutanted" typo because I created R5 some days ago as I am already working on R6 - which has lots of changes).
