As I’ve been working on factions for my Mutant Future Mutantbox campaign, I decided that to help flavour each faction I’d design them a custom handwritten font each.
For starters I penned in a nice superior feeling font for those ever present Knights of Genetic Purity.
That can be used for a handout or two, and it’s a style that all the Knights can use, as it’s the handwriting they are taught during their training. Here’s a handout I knocked up in five minutes. A simple subtle paper background and this font are all that are involved. No torn edges today, the Knights have decent pads of fresh paper!
Other factions not stolen from GammaWorld, are pinched from Carl Nash and modified a bit. I also have warring ape tribes in my underground military base megadungeon. In this case the two tribes are the Cybonobos and the Gorillaborgs. They have been at war for decades, sectioning off parts of the base between each of them. They have reached a kind of cold-war status quo, and just execute small raids on each others territory.
The Cybonobo chimps scribble warnings on the walls with mixtures the nearest bodily fluids. Their style is somewhat childish and underdeveloped, apologies to my daughter but for this I’ve scanned her handwritting.
The Gorillaborgs on the other happen to be in a section of the base where the gaffa tape is stored so they write their warning signs by taping letters to the walls.
If anyone wants a copy of the font files just leave me a comment.
Today I didn’t finish my map in my break. Firstly because I plan for it to be rather large, and secondly because I’m learning new techniques.
This is a map for a megadungeon in my Mutant Future game. I’m trying to simulate here the kind of visitor floorplan you see in hospitals or universities. I did search around on the net as Carl Nash suggested and didn’t find any plans online I liked, so I decided to go for it. Here’s the first three floors.
At the weekend I was away with no access to computers or the internet, that didn’t stop me scribbling down stuff in a notebook to prepare for my first Mutant Future session this week.
Inspired by Jeff Rients and with the help of my six year old daughter I made a list of random items. This would be relevant to any post apocalyptic setting of course.
List after the jump… Continue reading…
