The Waste

Welcome to Mutant Year Zero
Session 0

No forums, sorry, not quite committed enough to pay for the extras.

This Saturday we are tentatively going to get MY0 off the ground. I will be running the game.

You will be playing mutants in a post apocalyptic setting clinging to life in your community know as the Ark. Things have gone smoothly for years but in recent times everything has begin to fall apart do to lack of food, water, and resources. It is a bleak time where you as the players will either rise up to let back in the light and grow your Ark in to a safe and prosperous place or be taken forever by doom that awaits you in the Zone.

First day will be mostly getting the characters made and the Ark (your community) up and running. This will take some discussion among the group members to pick various aspects of your current village/town.

I’ve been reviewing the rules and will hopefully be able to field most questions by the time we start. They system is pretty quick and simple.

What you will need :

Pencil
Six sided dice in three different colors. At least 4 of each color, 5 is recommended.

If there is time I will have some small dice on hand for communal use as well.

That is about it.

Once we get going if you have private questions for me as the GM go ahead and message me through obsidian portal or go the old fashioned rout and leave me a note at the end of the game. There is a built in ending that I may be using if things seem like they are just getting monotonous or someone would like to move on. If any of you feel the need to pick up a book or a pdf of the book Please refrain from reading section 2 (the blue section) as this may contain spoilers when the campaign reaches its conclusion.

If you have a copy of the rules before Saturday feel free to go ahead and message me about anything you want clarified rules wise as it may be something that will be confusing later as well. Until then, see you Saturday.

Session 0.1
The Apocalypse
How did the world end? Some Stalkers and other braggarts say they know what happened. That a great plague swept the world and killed everyone. That the bosses of the old age fired their weapons of mass destruction at each other and drowned the world in flames. That the gods among the stars, the Ancients’ overlords, had enough of mankind’s hubris and decided to end it all in fire and brimstone. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s just lies and tall tales. The truth is, no one knows for sure. Except maybe the elder. And he refuses to talk about it. We learned as children not to ask, he would curse and rave at us every time the subject came up. But I’ve heard him mumble in his sleep. He said that the Ancients ended themselves. - Hanneth, Chronicler

Session 0.2
Grub

The Elder always took care of us. Protected us, comforted us, gave us grub. There was a stockpile of canned grub, and he knew how to grow more right out of the ground. Now the stockpile is almost gone, and nothing is growing. Grub is scarce and what little there is, is controlled and rationed by the bosses. Soon there won’t be any grub left. Then we’ll starve – unless we learn how to grow grub or kill beasts and eat them, like the Ancients did.

Session 0.3
Rot

So, you want me to take you into the Zone? You think you have what it takes? You have no idea what it’s like out there. No idea. Let me tell you about the Rot, and we’ll see if you still want to go after that. The good kind of Rot is the kind you can see. Green sludge floating on a still pond. If you get it on your body it will seep into your wounds, your mouth and eyes. It will slowly break you down. The bad kind of Rot is invisible. You won’t know it’s there until your bones and muscles ache. If you go to close to the hotspot, your hair will fall off. You puke blood. If you don’t get away quickly, you’re done for. How do I survive in the Zone, you ask? I know where to go, and where not to go. I know what water to drink, what food to eat, and I know how to endure pain. The Rot hurts more than you could imagine. Are you still sure you want to go?
