Over the years I've made no secret of the fact that I'm a Gamma World fanatic. In point of fact it was Gamma World that was one of the underpinnings that brought me to the OSR in the first place. I could mention that it was Mutant Future by Goblinoid Games that really started me on this path. Or I could mention Thundarr Thursdays from the Savage Afterworld blog are actually what made me start this blog in the first place. Instead, I'd like to take a moment of your time to talk about the OSR blog Kellri aka Scot Hoover. For most Scot has been a bombastic fountain of OSR creativity especially when it came to Gamma World & many old school games. Scot also happens to be my real life friend, we've never met in person but like Venger or Rpg Pundit or any number of OSR people he's a real friend.
He's had a stroke at the age of forty nine. Let that sink in for a moment. A stroke like one of those life changing bits that sneaks up on you in the middle of the night. He also happens to be a father or in his words he's an " English teacher living and writing in Vietnam for the past 19 years.I have been a single father supporting my two teenage children Sam, and Siobhan for the past 6 years in Vietnam."
Now he needs a life saving MRI and Scot hasn't got any back up insurance.
" Last week I suffered life threatening and debilitating stroke which has left me unable to write. According to my doctor I need to get an MRI as soon as possible. I have no health or medical insurance this campaign will mean I will be ale to pay my rent an medical expenses and continue supporting my children until I am on the road to recovery "
So once again I'm sounding the trumpets & banging the drums to help out one of us. If you're so inclined you can donate to Scot's Go Fund Me campaign here. All of the proceeds will go to helping him & his kids for real & no B.S. Trust me Scot is a straight shooter and one of the most honest people I know. So every last dollar is going to go exactly where it belongs!
Now on an unrelated OSR note if you haven't checked out Kellri's OSR resources then you have no idea of the depths of resources that your missing out on. Not just Gamma World but also a huge number of old school retro clone stuff that can be used with ANY Dungeons & Dragons style game from B/X to Fifth edition if that's your inclination. There's some top drawer Stars Without Number stuff that is fantastic!
Thanks to looking over Kellri's OSR resource I've been planning a Gamma World game mini campaign. More on that later on. For the moment thanks for your attention & anything will be appreciated by the Hover family. Cheers & keep em rolling!
