Not that I’ll get a game up and running (I get to run my D&D game all too rarely as it is), but I enjoyed Fury Road and it got me thinking about post-apocalyptic RPGs. In thinking of which are best suited to a Mad Max theme, the top contenders (in no particular order) are:
Barbarians of the Aftermath which is a Barbarians of Lemuria expansion. I’m about to start playing in a BoL game and, when I’ve played it in the past, I really dug its rules-lite approach and flexibility.
Atomic Highway is probably the best fit for a Road Warrior themed-game. In fact I seems like the game was built with the Mad Max movies in mind. A few years ago I toyed with starting up a AH game but, as things often do, the game didn’t come to fruition. Even better, the PDF is free!
Gamma World is a little too gonzo for a Mad Max-themed game but I had to include it out of nostalgia. Sadly my favorite version of Gamma World, the 1992 version penned by Bruce Nesmith and James Ward, is hard to come by for a reasonable price. Mutant Future, on the other hand, is available for free… though it’s closer to earlier iterations of GW (which isn’t a terrible thing!).
