Gel-Bak: Creatures of the Apocalypse 21

Suggested Price $1.00

Even during expeditions into the ruins, always pack some wine and beer to trade – it could save your life!

Although capable of being a deadly, flesh eating monstrosity of the wastelands and ruined streets of the Oldsters, a gel-bak is more commonly known as a drunken bully, who along with his or her gang, accost travelers and dig teams alike.

Booze, either beer, wine or something stronger, is what this mutant rubble lord is after, and for those who are able to offer such liquid commodities, this vaguely humanoid thing will grant passage through its territory as well as useful tidbits of intel about the local area. But be warned, a gel-bak and its mooks are sometimes treacherous, and quite likely to direct teams into a trap or to adventure sites that are meant for only the most potent, clever and well equipped excavators.

This ten page creature listing includes the following useful tables to help bring to life, and deploy a gel-bak in your next Mutant Epoch RPG session. These include listings that the GM can either pick or roll randomly from, including tables that can be used for other encounters and discoveries, such as the loot, booze and adventure idea rich 'intel table'.

Tables included with this freak:
- Gender Determination
-Pus Sack Color, Contents and Results
-Drunkenness Determination
- Weapons Table
- Minions Table
- Intel Table
- Booze Table
- Loot Table

With some tweaking, a game master using another rpg system could easily adopt these hidious, besotted gang lords to their tabletop.

For those of you who have collected the first thirteen free critters, you'll notice two things.
        First, where are creatures 14 to 20, you ask? Well, they're included in the Creatures of the Apocalypse Codex, a for purchase book (pdf $9.99, print $19.99) which includes the 13 free critters, plus the Muto Harpy (members only creature) plus 6 all new, highly detailed freaks including The Walking Mouther, Rubble Troll, Snaykin, Nubinz, Apocalypse Moth and the Spider Lord. Curious? See it here.
         Secondly, we've pushed this PDF as a 'Pay What You Want' release, and while most people grab such online content on a try before you buy, 'free' basis, we hope that if you like what you see you can throw some coins in our tip jar.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
