    Won’t be able to listen to this until the Accidental Survivors finish recording our next episode. Why, you ask? It’s also on post-apoc. So will we be the Kevin Costner “Robin Hood” or the Patrick Bergin one?

    We know, that’s why we did this episode. We were like, screw those Canadians, America will get to the Pocapocalypse first!

    …or Matt said “Hey, let’s talk about this tonight.” and we said “Okay.”

    It’s definitely one of those two scenarios.

    Needs more Keith Curtis. Podcasts that mention Keith Curtis get an extra star from the Great Big Podcast Evaluation Board on the Planet Neptune.

    Seriously, you guys are getting better all the time.

    It’s true: Allison Mack makes the series.

    Oh man, seriously, it’s all about Allison.

    I’m like Adam when it comes to Smallville.

    I wonder if that “Dawn Project” game you mention is actually The Morrow Project.

    I’ve never played it, but I seem to remember it being a post-apocalyptic game of some sort. Pretty old school.

    Keith, I’ll be sure to make your name the very first thing I say on the podcast when we record our Post-Apoc episode this evening.

    Joe, screw you and your idea-stealing, hippie, tree-hugging Yankee pals. This is going to be the Pocopalypse Throw-Down!

    Ender, I too am all about the Allison Mack. Well done, VIP Gamer. Well done.

    What amazing irony that we’re going to have to Thunderdome over our post-apocalyptic podcasting. Feel the finger of fate fingering you!

    Thanks for the shout out Rob. You’ve got me listening to some of your back episodes now.

    I agree that that cryogenically frozen squads of guys was the Morrow Project, produced originally by Timeline and have been picked up by various game companies over the years.

    One of the designers, Richard Tucholka of Tri Tac Games, also designed a post apocalyptic supplement for the Fringeworthy game, called Rogue 417 which was both an interesting game world and also provided some interesting rules for mapping out areas and determining remaingin tech for those areas. There is also a good price chart where the price of goods vary depending on the current time after the holocaust.

    Fringeworthy is also a post apocalyptic game, but the holocaust wasn’t ours. The players find themselves in the aftermath and spend most of their time dealing with re-emerging factions, remnants of ultra-high tech devices on alternate earthlike worlds, homocidal robots, etc. While it can be played many ways, the default gameplay is exploration and high tech hunter scenarios. It has recently been released for D20 Modern.
