Attention Mutant Future and Apes Victorious fans!

I've been working feverishly on a little something for y'all...


I know... it's naughty of me to have something in the works and not let anyone know. Well, consider the cat out of the bag. The book is around 36 pages (and it's all written; I'm just polishing obsessively at this point), will accommodate both the Mutant Future™ and Apes Victorious™ rules from Goblinoid Games (but mechanics are very light, and it'll really be usable with any science fantasy rules, even that one with the Greek letter in the name... umm... Theta World or something?), and will also feature a huge poster map suitable for printing and framing. Here's a meager sample:


This isn't a typical post-apocalyptic setting where everything is ruins and wastelands; this is one with a semi-civilized world to explore and interact with. There are pockets of high technology trying to civilize (or conquer!) the rest of the world. It's very much a gonzo kitchen sink setting, think a mish-mash of every 70's post-apocalyptic theme you can think of (especially Genesis II/Planet Earth and Marvel Comics' Terror on the Planet of the Apes). 

I think it's safe to say that release is imminent. It'll be all pdf and print-it-your-own-damn-self, but fans of the original World of Greyhawk folio will find the book format very familiar. :-)

Look for an announcement that it's available soon. Really soon. Did I mention I was obsessively polishing?

What, you want more? Fine. Here's the back cover copy:
A thousand years ago, the world died.
Now, out of the ashes of the great nuclear-biological Devastation comes a new world. A world where intelligent apes hunt humans for sport. A world where subterranean mutant cyborgs serve great disembodied brains and plot world domination. A world where apocalyptic cults try to finish what the bombs started. A world where frightful artificial intelligences command armies of robot servants, and entire nations of clones lead peaceful and productive lives, unless you’re not of the right clone-lineage. 
And it’s also a world where mankind and his newfound fellow intelligent species try to pick up the pieces and rebuild civilization.
This is a world where a force for good, knowledge, and science works to help restore that which was lost, to guide this new world onto a path of justice and learning. That force is called Project Oasis.
