Gamma World: Legion of Gold Origin Cards

A Bright Future Ahead Of You

With the release of the final Gamma World expansion, Legion of Gold, I have produced a series Character Origin cards in the same style as the Famine in Far-Go cards and Core Rulebook origin cards I released previously.  These cards are a tool to speed up character creation and aid play.  Have your players roll their origins and then hand out the appropriate cards to them.  These double-sided cards reprint almost all of the information found in the origin section of the rulebook, including the origin’s name, description, full trait information, critical hit ability, and power names.  They contain all the information a player needs while creating their characters and serve as a handy reference during play.  Since power descriptions are too lengthy and really deserve their own cards, I have only included their names.

Gamma World: Character Sheet

Saw Boss, Wheeled Plant

Let’s face it, the character sheet that comes with Gamma World is… lacking.  I’m all for simplicity, but the one in the box just doesn’t cut it.  Yes, it is colorful.  Yes, it will fit in the box.  Yes, it says Gamma World on it.  But I want something more robust.  So as a GM with more time on his hands than common sense, I set out to create my own.  I present to you, the One Inch Square Gamma World Character Sheet:

Front (click for large version)

The front side features just about every bit of information you’ll need in front of you during play.  The most important items are highlighted with a bold border to help them stick out.  Sections that are used in creating the character but aren’t directly referenced in game (e.g. the columns of various bonuses for skills) are slightly greyed to set them off.  Wherever possible, hints are given in cells to show where a particular bonus or bit of information should come from to speed up character generation and add clarity.  Here’s an example of the front side filled for a first level character.

Back (click for large version)

The back side has a place for the player to record which powers, etc., they’ve taken at each level as well as a large area for notes.  There are also places to record which Alpha and Omega cards the player has in order to keep track between sessions.

The character sheet does not have space for power descriptions (though one could use the “notes” section) as it is assumed that players are using some sort of cards or printouts with that information on it.  And of course I recommend the Character Origin Cards found on this blog as an aid in character creation and play.

Gamma World: Famine In Far-Go Character Origin Cards

Dyno-MITE!

With the recent release of Gamma World:  Famine In Far-Go, I have produced a series Character Origin cards in the same style as the core rulebook origin cards I released previously.  These cards are a tool to speed up character creation and aid play.  Have your players roll their origins and then hand out the appropriate cards to them.  These double-sided cards reprint almost all of the information found in the origin section of the rulebook, including the origin’s name, description, full trait information, critical hit ability, and power names.  They contain all the information a player needs while creating their characters and serve as a handy reference during play.  Since power descriptions are too lengthy and really deserve their own cards, I have only included their names.

Character Origin Card Sample (Front/Back)

I have also updated the original set of cards to fix typos, adjust the order in which the information is presented in some cases, and remove some extraneous wording from the front of most cards.

In addition, I  have created a handful of extra cards to serve as quick references.  They are as follows:

Critical Hit Benefit / Uber Feature Card:  At 2nd level, players can place the Critical Hit Benefit side of this card under the origin card of the origin from which they chose their critical hit benefit to serve as a reminder.  At 10th level, the Uber Feature side of the card can be used to remember which uber feature has been chosen by placing it under an expert power card, omega tech cards, or an alpha mutation.

Omega Tech / Salvaged Gear Card:  The Omega Tech side of this card gives the run down on Omega Tech card rules, particularly the Omega Charge roll.  The Salvaged Gear side details how salvaging works, and can be placed near or under salvaged Omega Tech cards to distinguish them from non-salvaged tech.

End of Encounter / Difficulty Class By Level Card:  This is intended as a GM quick reference card.  The End of Encounter side gives a run down of the common things that happen post encounter (e.g. Omega Charge check, changing Alpha Mutations, handing out rewards, etc.)  The Difficulty Class By Level side reprints the chart of the same name from the rulebook as well as the list of skills found in Gamma World.

Core Rule Origins / Famine In Far-Go Origins Card:  This is intended as a GM reference card.  The Core Rule Origins side lists all the origins from the Gamma World Rulebook, the Famine in Far-Go Origins side lists all the origins from the first expansion.

Gamma World: Character Origin Cards

That's One Big Bug

Gamma World, by design, has a much simpler character creation process than the 4th Edition D&D rules from which it mutated.  It simplifies the gameplay experience while at the same time greatly reducing the time between rolling up a character and actual playing him or her (or it!)

However, the concept that characters should be able to be rolled up and ready to play in 15 minutes suffers from a fatal flaw, and it’s a flaw not in rule design but rather a matter of resource limits:  There’s only one rulebook.  And since you can’t buy rulebooks separately, the beginning of your Gamma World session is likely to involve a fair amount of book passing.

To address this issue, and in keeping with the card theme of Gamma World, I have produced a series of Gamma World Character Origins Cards intended to be printed and handed out to players when they’ve rolled for their origins.

Gamma World Character Origin Card (Front/Back)

These double-sided cards reprint almost all of the information found in the origin section of the rulebook, including the origin’s name, description, full trait information, critical hit ability, and power names.  They contain all the information a player needs while creating their characters and serve as a handy reference during play.  Since power descriptions are too lengthy and really deserve their own cards, I have only included their names (For power cards, I recommend these fantastic cards by AH_Anarchy).

The cards are standard size (2.5in x 3.5in), come 9 per sheet, and are intended to be printed with the descriptive information on one side and the trait information on the other.  You’ll probably want to print a few copies of each to have enough to pass out when players roll duplicate origins.

Gamma World: Omega Tech By Salvage Level

Omega Tech

In Gamma World, the occasionally arduous task of doling out magic items to players is replaced by a simple draw from the Omega Tech deck.  But as the DM, you might sometimes wish to set aside a specific item as treasure, either for thematic reasons, or because the item is particularly cool (or zany).  If you’re looking for an item that you intend PCs to keep for awhile, you’ll want to choose something that has a salvage level.  Not wanting to flip through my cards every time I want to set aside a salvageable item, however, I created this chart with all of the Omega Tech sorted by salvage level.

Spoiler Alert: This chart contains information about all of the Omega Tech cards, including those found in expansions, booster packs and promo cards. If you are a player or DM who wants to preserve the mystery of the random deck, stop reading.

The chart is sorted by the salvage level (“N/A” if the item can’t be salvaged) and contains the name, equipment slot, and source (Ishtar, Area 52, or Xi) of the item.  It also includes the rarity (Starter, eXpansion, Common, Uncommon, Rare, or Promo) of the card, the set the card comes from (Starter, Legion of Gold, Booster, or Promo), and the number of the card.

For convenience, I have also made the chart available in PDF format.
