Ishihara Gōjin' s Journey To The Center Of The Earth Setting For Your Old School Post Apocalypse Game
In 1969 Ishihara Gōjin did some of the most evocative & slightly disturbing images of the a fictional Journey To The Center of the Earth setting I've seen . These incredible images are part of a child's magazine believe it or not. The only thing that comes to mind while viewing these are an adult version of the old Inhumaniod's cartoon!
Others have asked me what possibly could be done with the over the top Carcosa game system? Well I present you with one possibly or this campaign could be done with Mutant Future! There are now more then enough Japanese Monster movies within the public domain that you as a dungeon master could turn the volume up to '11" & go from there! I find Ishihara ("Japan's Norman Rockwell") Gōjin to be evocative, interesting, & downright disturbing but oh so inspiring! Here's a list of Japanese monster movies within the pubic domain that could be used for inspiration for this type of campaign! Here
