Gamma Terra & the apocalypse

Today is Gamma Terra. And our GM posted up the description of the apocalypse from 1st edition Gamma World yesterday:

The Apocalypse

I first read that at age 10 or 11, probably 10, as I got right into Gamma World after I started playing D&D near the end of my 9th year.

It really creeped me out, in a good way.

And it's appallingly descriptive of 21st century politics, isn't it?

Out of game, I assume that's how the world ended. And that great past-tense tag line at the end sums up our game:

"During the Black Years, those who held the tools, held the power."

We aim to hold the tools.
