A Post Apocalyptic Thought

I spend about 10hrs a week reading RPG blogs. (until I get burnt out and don't read anything for a month) But, it's totally worth it. In addition to being handed great ideas and resources. Reading all that spurs my creativity and inspires me to do stuff.

Mutant Apocalypse type games typically are wide open wilderness affairs after a modestly advanced civilization nukes itself. The image on Noisms' Post Apocalyptic Play-list made me consider using a "city world" such as Star Wars' Corcusant or imperial capital of Asimov's Foundation as the setting instead. Endless miles of steel and concrete ruins. A hundred levels of metal "dungeon" before you reach the bottom. A hundred more reaching up into the sky in the few towers left intact. I imagine a bit of a claustiphobic Space Hulk vibe.

Maybe too monotonus? Always overgrown "parks", agri-domes, and hydroponic farm levels for that getting back to nature feeling.

When I get around to Mutant Future I strongly consider using this kind of setting.
