Here is the rpgNOW text
Even during expeditions into the ruins, always pack some wine and beer to trade – it could save your life!
Although capable of being a deadly, flesh eating monstrosity of the wastelands and ruined streets of the Oldsters, a gel-bak is more commonly known as a drunken bully, who along with his or her gang, accost travelers and dig teams alike.
Booze, either beer, wine or something stronger, is what this mutant rubble lord is after, and for those who are able to offer such liquid commodities, this vaguely humanoid thing will grant passage through its territory as well as useful tidbits of intel about the local area. But be warned, a gel-bak and its mooks are sometimes treacherous, and quite likely to direct teams into a trap or to adventure sites that are meant for only the most potent, clever and well equipped excavators.
This ten page creature listing includes the following useful tables to help bring to life, and deploy a gel-bak in your next Mutant Epoch RPG session. These include listings that the GM can either pick or roll randomly from, including tables that can be used for other encounters and discoveries, such as the loot, booze and adventure idea rich 'intel table'.
Tables included with this freak:
- Gender Determination
- Pus Sack Color, Contents and Results
- Drunkenness Determination
- Weapons Table
- Minions Table
- Intel Table
- Booze Table
- Loot Table
With some tweaking, a game master using another rpg system could easily adopt these hideous, besotted gang lords to their tabletop.
For those of you who have collected the first thirteen free critters, you'll notice two things.
First, where are creatures 14 to 20, you ask? Well, they're included in the Creatures of the Apocalypse Codex, a for purchase book (pdf $9.99, print $19.99) which includes the 13 free critters, plus the Muto Harpy (members only creature) plus 6 all new, highly detailed freaks including The Walking Mouther, Rubble Troll, Snaykin, Nubinz, Apocalypse Moth and the Spider Lord. Curious? See it here.
Secondly,we've pushed this PDF as a 'Pay What You Want' release, and while most people grab such online content on a try before you buy, 'free' basis, we hope that if you like what you see you can throw some coins in our tip jar.
Stay tuned for future releases for The Mutant Epoch RPG.
