“Wastelands”: Sverige är sig inte längre likt

För mer än 25 år sedan skrev jag och några andra entusiaster på Lancelot Games rollspelet Wastelands (länk >>> ). De grymma utomjordingarna byrr ödelägger och underkuvar vår värld, medan överlevande människor söker skydd i vildmarken.

I Wastelands-Sverige är dock storskogen inte helt lik. De här två äventyrarna har i och för sig inte överrumplats, men räcker deras bössor här …?

PS. Wastelands-propertyns ägare har gett mig tillstånd att reboota produktlinjen. Det avser jag att göra framöver, om än i liten skala. Stay tuned to this channel.

PPS. Rävspels sajt lider av problem. Men här är en WaybackMachine-sida med mycket av dess Wastelands-material — länk >>>

Nausicaa!

I am a great fan of the Studio Ghibli movies since many years and my particular favorite has always been Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds: great post-apocalyptic world, good plot and a fantastic protagonist. Here she is in a pseudo-realistic rendition. Click on the picture for a larger version. (And here is the soundtrack — link >>> )

Alternate Earths

The World Dream Bank is a great resource for people wanting develop alien worlds or alternate Earths. It provides several well-reasoned planets with maps and texts, including terraformed Mars and Venus. Link — >>>

The example below is a future Earth where the polar icecaps have melted with an accompanying rise of the oceans — useful for postapocalyptic campaigns. Click on the map for a larger version.

“Flotsam”: Apocalyptistan at Sea

Belgian indie game maker Pajama Llama Games is working on an odd town-building simulator, Flotsam, in which you strive to construct a sustainable floating settlement in an ocean-covered post-apocalyptic world by using the flotsam of the fallen civilization. You can read more about it here — link >>>

I love the idea and the artwork on Pajama Llama’s site is appealing. So I hope these chaps will be able to launch the game in 2017 as they plan.

Diesel-style Miniatures

Snow Corporation is the pseudonym for a British chap who has created an amazing set of 1/6 scale figures. They belong to many settings: Dieselretro, Star Wars, post-Apocalyptic and so on. I like his craftsmanship; grim and worn are two hallmarks.

The adventurer above with his Sherpa robot could be one of the protagonists in my planned Red Sand diesel adventure novel (link >>> ).

Here is Snow Corporation’s site with lots of albums — link >>>
