The Rad-Hack
by Gábor C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/23/2017 05:05:29

So you watched A Boy and His Dog, Stalker, all of Mad Max, and some other movies like these, then played some Borderlands, Stalker, and Fallout, and so on, and now want the same in your tabletop gaming? Right now? Without having to read and memorize hundreds of pages? Look no further!

The Rad-Hack is a superb little game for all your post-apocalyptic roleplaying needs. Minimalist, versatile ruleset. Simple and great mechanics that you can learn and teach your players in about an hour. And lots of freedom for the GM. (Well, the latter can be a bit surprising to those coming from slightly more complex systems, but you'll likely get the feel of it, and will love it. I did.)

The crazy art is excellent. Not realistic at all, but it is inspiring, and sets the mood.

PS: Yes, if you ask me, it's totally worth its price, even if it's a bit higher than the other Hacks.

The Rad-Hack
by Charles V. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/17/2017 12:31:12

This is my favorite Black Hack hack. It just oozes character, and mutagenic glowing fluids. Seriously, the illustrations in this book are fantastic and really make it seem real, or at least, really fun!

The four classes have different ways of generating their stats, which seems very apt. Robots are a point-buy system, humans roll 4d6 and drop lowest, mutants really roll the dice - 1d20 per stat, reroll 1s and 20s. And then psychics get 4d6 drop lowest for mental attributes and 2d6+2 for physical stats. Each class has different added-on powers - humans have Professions where they can get advantages on relevant rolls, mutants have their mutations, robots have modules, psychics get their psionics. So there's random tables and 20 results for each class, which is great. Lets players rapidly differentiate themselves from other PCs with the same class, as a Profession: Driver is going to have some different starting gear and desires than a Farmer.

Then rules for guns, radiation, drugs, figuring out high-tech, and vehicles getting wrecked - an Out of the Action table for vehicles. There's a 2-page wastelands bestiary, 7 sample vehicles (and stats for the trailer part of a semi-trailer) and high-tech gear. A hex map and a beautiful non-hex map end the PDF and make me want to grab this, a bunch of random tables, and run some irradiated PCs through a vibrant, insane apocalyptic wasteland.

OSR Character Sheet

Great character sheet--clean and simple and all the way metal! Plus, nice visuals that can be useful for newer players. This is going to be my go-to for sure.

Great fun. Minimalist rule set. Excellent illustrations. I hope it gets expanded just a bit! Too much would ruin it's "less is more" approach.

I've been following the author of this title on google+ since he previewed some of the artwork for this hack on The Black Hack google+ community and I'd been sold on this product ever since.

Now that I've been able to purchase it and giev the whole thing a look over, I'm glad I bought it.

The artwork is amazing and really helps to set the tone for gonzo gamma world-style adventures. I'm already a fan of The Black Hack and this hack builds on it fantastically without taking away any of it's charm.

I'm looking forward to seeing a print copy of this title!
