    [BoL, Barbarians of the Aftermath Brainstorming] Need Ideas For Careers For A Prisoners-As-Conscripted-Soldiers-In-Space Game

    So after a looong hiatus from gaming, last week I finally got together with an old group and got back into regular gaming. We decided to alternate games every week, with me running the alternate game. I pitched a couple of ideas to the group and they liked my weirder idea: a game where the...

    BotA Rpg

    I a bit foncused :/ Does Barbarians of the Aftermath have full rules with which to play, or do you need BoL as well?

    [Barbarians of Lemuria] Expanding my ibrary; H+I or BotA???

    I've rather settled on getting either Barbarians of the Aftermath or Honor+Intrigue to expand my BoL library (which consists of Legends of Steel, BoL edition alone). I am pretty familiar with the other two products from reading descriptions on these forums and other sites, and it really does...

    [BOL/JotSS] Skyrealms of Jorune

    I'm on vacation this week, with no real plans, and was perusing my game collection when my eyes landed on my old Skyrealms of Jorune game books. After brushing off twenty years worth of dust, it dawned on me that this aging beauty is really a variation of the old Sword and Sorcery genre. So...

    BoL for a StarGate game?

    I am planning to run a game set in the StarGate universe, mostly favoring the tropes of the SG-1 series. I'm thinking about using BoL - not a fan of D20 system or the published SG-1 game in general. Figured I would post and ask - has anyone done this with BoL before - and if so, how did that...

    [Barbarians of the Aftermath] Future Heresy

    I seem to recall that Maxwell Luther put out a free .pdf sci-fi and grimdark supplement for Barbarians of the Aftermath not too long ago, but I can't find it anywhere. Did I just imagine this, or am I just bad at google searching RPG open? Thanks to anyone who knows.

    IC [Barbarians of the Aftermath] Whispers of the Forefathers

    You've been travelling for three days now. The road ahead seems more like a path carved by a dying thrashing beast among sickened trees and barren plains, all that remained of the north of what the ancient tales call the province of Germania. Behind you stay the villages of Oderossa and...

    OOC [Barbarians of the Aftermath] Dying Whispers of the Forefathers

    Hi folks, recruitment went on this thread:http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=561915, and as Iskallor pointed out, it took too long. I'm sorry about that, as that's my first attempt here at PBP. Players are: Iskallor as the Revolutionary Mutant SPARTIKUS Fred as the Adonai Monk/Record...

    [Recruitment] Barbarians of the Aftermath using the random apocalyps tables

    Hi, there, that's my first time trying to GM in PBP games, so bear with me if I seem a bit unused to the procedures of the forum. My first attempt will be at this terrific meta-setting for Barbarians of Lemuria that was easily my best pick at Gen Con last year. Even though I carried literally...

    [BotA] Tell me about your Apocalypse

    Having finally read Barbarians of the Aftermath - great book - I'm getting ready to run a game of it in the new year. I love the first section on generating your Apocalypse, and would love to hear some that folks used (either random or not).

    [Barbarians of the Aftermath] Warhammer 2025

    I watched a movie called "Teh Book of Eli" last night. It made me want to run a post-apocalyptic game... where the players are on the move from city to city... scrounging for food and water.... fighting off bandits... and seeking out the mutant, the heretic, and the demon! Because, our...

    Barbarians of Heavy Metal & Strange Stones...

    As I'm finally wrapping up the Time Traveler's Companion for DW:AiTaS, the BotA JBook for the Ipad and a host of other projects (including a baby boy who will be born this week! Huzzah!) I am now in the organizational stage for Barbarians of Heavy Metal. Now as the Venomous Pao has been such a...

    [BotA] IPad App: Consumer Opinion Thread...

    Looking at the IPad and wanting to go beyond the utility of a simple dice app or PDF translation, I wanted to create something that is the ideal hybrid of technology and TTRPG. The goal is to make an app that removes the need for any external gaming apparatus like dice, pencils, paper and so on...

    [BotA] Character Sheets, Please

    Hullo, folks, I have just purchased Barbarians of the Aftermath (already have BoL) for my post-apocalyptic game needs, and have noticed that there was no PDF bundle available of the game. I am looking for PDF copies of the charts and tables, along with the character and setting sheets, from...

    Barbarians of the Aftermath

    I have it, and it kicks ass. I know it can handle anything from gritty to gonzo, but right now, I'm all about the latter -- it's really scratching my old-school Gamma World itch like a 4e game never would. So, who else has it, and what are your thoughts?

    [BotA] Barbarians of the Aftermath is in my hands...

    I just got my author copies and they are pretty, if I do say so myself. :D I love the non-glossy cover and the interior 'radioactive' yellow cover pages really catch the eye. I'm going to be setting up a demo game at Area 51 in Grapevine, Texas for Dan Davenport in the next few weeks so that...

    Atomic Highway vs. Barbarians of the Aftermath

    I am waiting for the new 4E powered Gamma World and was wondering of the 2 front runner post apocalyptic RPGs out right now, which seems to be overall superior? I have heard a lot of great things about Atomic Highway but know next to nothing about it. In addition, I own Barbarians of Lemuria...

    Post Apocalyptic Gaming: Atomic Highway vs Barbarians of the Aftermath

    It has recently come to my attention that almost all of my gaming is fantasy, even though I like several other genres, so I'm trying to branch out a little. I'm thinking of picking up a post-apocalyptic rpg to try out. Sell me on either of these games, or, if you've played both, maybe compare...

    Gaves Barbarians of the Aftermath a Whirl

    A few days ago my wife and I gave Barbarians of the Aftermath a whirl in the setting we developed for our Live Action Airsoft System so that we could jumpstart the game. I gotta say, BotA is very well done. We used the MythicGM Emulator along with the story generator in the PDF to get things...

    Barbarians of the Inquisition

    I've been enamored with Barbarians of Lemuria for a bit now, and have been tempted to suggest replacing our 4E campaign with BoL. I've also picked up BotA (aka Ink Sink if you print it). Tie this into the fact that I have picked up the Dark Heresy series planning to run some acolyte...
