Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #41: Alternate Forms of Radiation

Skirmisher Publishing has posted issue #41 of Wisdom From the Wastelands up online for your reading pleasure.



In this issue:

As one of technology’s four horsemen, radiation is a important part in Mutant Future and other post-apocalyptic and sci-fi games: hazard, theme, bringer of mutation, waster of civilizations. The game mechanics assume a single kind of radiation, which reacts in a single way with the human, animal, or mutant plant body. But in real life, this isn’t the case. Radiation comes in different forms, with different intensities and different ways of being used or causing harm. This issue considers these different types of energy, and introduces many possibilities brought by a few hundred years of scientific progress, industrial ingenuity, and alien contact.
