Welcome to the Future!

Rad Sign

The Fall has long since wiped out civilization, leaving the planet’s surface a savage land of radioactive waste crawling with mutant creatures, and forcing the few survivors underground to live as best they could. Your community – called Tau – has endured through the long years since the Fall, its inhabitants sheltered safely beneath the earth.

Until now…

Scavengers’ they call you. You and the other volunteers of the Surface Expedition Team are being sent above ground to salvage whatever you can from the ashes – and, perhaps, to find a future for your people.

Armed only with your wits and the weapons you find, you must travel through this less-than-inviting real estate to explore the surface world in search of Ancient relics.

Stay alert! Fierce radiation storms can blow up at any time, causing all kinds of nasty mutations. And hordes of marauding monsters – from arthropods to zombies – are roaming around just waiting to make you the snack du jour.

Few have made the journey, and even fewer have survived. Can you?

You can start your adventure by reading the Campaign Prologue and Mission Overview:

Once you’ve done that, go to the Rules Page and check out what’s available for download from this gameblog. If you’re new to the wastes, start with the Core Rules:

  1. The phrase “Tempora Mutantur” is derived from a a Latin adage meaning “times change”, or more precisely “the times are changed”. If you translate it poorly enough, it can also mean “these are mutant times“, which is my preferred interpretation.

    According to Wikipedia, it is also stated as the longer form “Tempora mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis”, meaning “Times change, and we change with them” – or perhaps “These are mutant times, and we too are changed by them“.

  2. I swiped most of the campaign background from an obscure computer RPG from the 1980s called "Scavengers of the Mutant World". Credit goes to Richard Launius, Bruce Beaumont, and Chris Stassen.

  3. Is this the set-up for the game your thinking of running? Sounds interesting!

  4. Yeah – this is the set-up that I would use in a pick-up game. I have enough post-apoc adventure locations that I would run a session as a hexcrawl / sandbox.

  5. Nice stuff. Can we expect any more sessions in the future?

    Sounds like awesome fun!

    hexcrawl/sandbox ???
    Yes this game is fun but more importantly the GM allows for fun to be had by all. Having said that, I must say he is a little TOO excited to kill and maim PC’s. Fair warning.

  8. Can you setup RSS for your site so I can follow it in google reader? I used to do that when you were on blogger.

  9. Done. You can now find the RSS feed links at the bottom of the sidebar.
