Oh man, haven't played Gamma World since high school/early '80s. Our GM led us through these really messed up ruins that turned out to be our high school and local mall. Man, he was good.

I've mentioned my name trick before, but i just wrote out a detailed description of it for a GM friend and thought i'd share it here too for anyone who has trouble coming up with names on the fly:

First, pick a random word from any bit of text you happen to have handy: "Lorem ipsum dolor..." 

Take a guess at how long you want the name to be. (Rule of thumb: Lower class/less important = short name, higher class/more important = longer name.)

Start at the beginning and either say or sound out the letters until you have the length of name you want. Add the next consonant on the end if you've hit your length but it doesn't sound right.

Try different sounds for each letter and see what you like best. Feel free to change the spelling once you have the sound right.

For instance, starting with "Lorem" i can get:
El
Elle
Elor
Eloar
Eloari
Eloara
Elorem
Eloriam
Eloariem
Lor
Loar
Loari
Loara
Lori
Lora
Loriem
Loreh'em"

Not sure if this will be any good (the comic books were), but listening to the lamentations of the focus-on-the-family-ish groups will make it worthwhile none the less.

Ugh, that is disappointing. I should have known better than to get my hopes up with Fox.

If you place a wineglass before a speaker emitting waves at the vessel’s resonant frequency, it will vibrate, or even shatter. But resonant frequencies aren’t unique to stemware; every object has one (or, more often, several). Even googly eyes.

Bored with regular old lakes of lava as the dangerous backdrop to your adventures? Try new and improved Blue Lava!™

Maiden's Hand Ring
When a command word is whispered to the ring the large gem shrinks and the hands set it inside the smaller ring. A new large gem (at least 1000 gp value) may now be placed in the large setting and the hands will grasp it securely. The effects of the ring depend on the gems it contains:
1   Ruby            (Resist Fire)
2   Quartz         (Resist Cold)
3   Emerald      (Resist Acid)
4   Sapphire     (Resist Lightning)
5   Pearl            (Water Breathing)
6   Onyx            (Resist Necromancy)
7   Opal             (Resist Poison)
8   Amethyst    (Immune to Mind Control/Charm/Sleep)
9   Garnet         (+1 Str and +1 Con)
10 Jade            (Soul Jar)
11 Tiger's Eye  (Infravision and See Invisible)
12 Diamond     (Resist Physical Damage)

The large gem has full effect while the smaller gem has a reduced effect.

That screenshot gives me an itch in my brain. Want to play.
Keeping your creepazoid partially concealed to sustain its scarepower is a spooking trick as old and perfect as BOO! yelling when someone least expects it.

Few things are as painful and soul-sucking to hear as a PR person pimping a bad product.
