"Barbarians of the Ruined Earth" masterfully captures adventure and creativity. Built on "The Black Hack," it's perfect for solo or group play. A hidden gem: its mutation and tech options offer simple yet exciting character customization. I loved crafting a unique character for solo play, adding unexpected depth.

Review

I grew up loving Thundarr the Barbarian as a kid, Barbarians of the Ruined Earth is about as close as you can get to role playing in that amazing world. The game is based off a roll under mechanic, which uses the actual ability scores as the number to roll under. It's simple to pick up, and character creation is a snap. Characters who have very stats may be the bane of the GM's existence, though. So come prepared to figure out other ways to challenge a character, because just throwing a more powerful monster at a party isn't necessarily going to work.

The artwork is amazing, and the design of the book is inviting. This is one worth buying.

My full review is over on my blog.

I love this book. These are the rules my buddies and I have been looking for our journeys in the Earth’s post-apocalyptic landscape. The main mechanic of the game, the stat test is simple to understand and teach to others. My gaming group, one new guy and three experienced players, were up and playing in less than 15 minutes and that included rolling up characters. The selection of 8 different classes/races hits the sweet spot. Not so many to overwhelm your players but there is still enough variety, so every class/race is unique and has a place in the party.

The book is nicely illustrated and written with a great tongue in cheek attitude but as a GM what I appreciate the most are all the random generation tables. Twenty pages of stuff like Bring the Crazy, Punishments of the Ruined Earth and Weird Weather. All good stuff that helps when your players decide to do exactly what you didn’t prepare for and you need something interesting and whacky to keep the game going.

Mike’s love of Thundarr the Barbarian comes through in every page. Being a fan of the Sun Sword wielding barbarian myself, this was a no-brainer to pick up. I only wish I had learned of this book sooner. This is what I imagine an 80’s Saturday morning cartoon produced by Troma Studios would be like and I love it.

The mechanics are easy to pick up and the setting is perfect for anyone who enjoys post apocalyptic wildness and the aesthetics of the 80s and 90s. The classes are all well balanced and fun, clearly designed with a lot of love for the genre at heart. If you like Thundarr the Barbarian, Mad Max, Water World, He-Man, She-Ra, Thundercats, Wizards, and the blending of science and sorcery, check it out!
