Anyway, here it is, again, with the proper notation added.

In case anyone is interested, I have the goods on the figure this was based on- it's a Tootsietoy Zoltan/Android figure from a set that included Maj. Mars (in a weird spacesuit) and Capt. Lazer (sic) who looked like a Power Ranger.

And there ya go.

PS- Thanks, Jay :)

This is the rocketship the players in my Space Ryft game will be using. Like I did with my game, I drew from a few different sources for inspiration. In case you were wondering, my game has nothing to do with GURPS Tales of the Solar Patrol. I got the name from a set of icons that I discovered back in the late 90's.

Anyway, I thought I'd share. Not meant to be taken seriously, really- just a slightly tongue-in-cheek party favor for my players. Enjoy!

Nope. I have a pretty limited gaming resume. Shadowrun, Heroes Unlimited, and TMNT & Other Strangeness is what I played like 15+ years ago. This year I just got into Savage Worlds and now this OSR kick. Traveller looks cool though!

Does anyone know of a dungeon generator that caters more to the Sci-Fi OSR feel? I've found plenty that generate and stock D&D-type dungeons, but nothing with that gonzo love.

The LBB's 1-3 are Trav, pretty much. A lot of the games and books are stand alone on their own right and not necessarily RPG material. GDW was a board/war game company first.

My neighbors when I was a kid had one of these. I wanted one so bad. It would make an awesome design for a PC's ship.

So, I was musing about life in a post-apoc science fantasy world while students took finals, and I got to thinking about economics, which I'm sure is a topic someone more coherent and thoughtful than me has already written. Regardless, I figured that in a region where political and social stability has combined with trade within and between communities at least loosely allied, a monetary system will have developed. In Mutant Future, this means the use of copper, silver, and gold pieces as currency. This currency would not, of course, replace barter and trade as means of economic exchange.

I also figured that people wouldn't go around calling copper pieces "copper pieces", et cetera. They'd have more idiomatic ways of referred to units of exchange. Here's what I came up with, which assumes that the distant post-apoc future includes English:

Coins. 1 scratch = 1/10 sawbuck = 1/100 moola
Barter. 1 grunt = 3 scratch, 1 vittle = 20 scratch, 1 shaker = 100 scratch

Obviously, a scratch equals a copper piece, a sawback a silver pieces, and a moola a gold piece. A grunt equals one day's worth of what nowadays is unfairly referred to as unskilled labor. A vittle is the cost of a basic meal. Nothing fancy, but more than subsistence level. A shaker equals a pound of salt. Units of exchange could be mixed and matched.

Now, to be honest, this is probably more trouble than I'd ever take with any game I ran, but I do like this sort of information lurking in the background. Also, it kept me from nodding off during the excitement of watching students take tests.

Here's an illustration I ran across that I thought you Gamma World/Mutant Future fans might enjoy. No supertech here, just good ol' bows & arrows. From the Dec '32 issue of Wonder Stories.
