The Consolidated Omega Box Document

Here is the Consolidated Omega Box document, including the never released mutations!  Omega Box is my post-apoclayptic take on Pathfinder’s Beginner Box, inspired by Johnathan Tweet’s Omega World article from issue 153 of Polyhedron Magazine (PDF available here for about $5, if you’re interested).

The mutations could be used in a standard Beginner Box game, but are not really balanced for such and thus could prove problematic if you let your PCs have them.  However, they could be used to good effect to spice up some of the BB monsters–imagine an Orc with psychic mutations, or an Ogre with big-ass pincher-hands!

I’ll continue to gradually expand the Omega Box, adding new relics, tweaking the skills, adding killer robots, etc.  But this is probably enough material to get you started on mutant-blasting goodness.  Note:  Many of the standard BB monsters make good stand-ins for monstrous mutants, with a little reimagining.

Edit:  Forgot to mention, since Omega World isn’t OGC, I had to tweak things a bit.  In particular, I changed the Explorer class, removing the bonus feats at levels 1, 3 and 5 and adding in the Survivalist ability, granting Survival points that you can use to reroll attack rolls, saving throws, ability and skill checks.

Have fun stormin’ the wastelands!

    Perfect timing! To be honest, I wouldn’t have given this a second glance if it weren’t from you. It is just not my genre to be honest, but, I did and boy was I glad a scanned it. I had just read over on the Swords of Minaria: Monstrous post, and I really think that this type of thing can revitalize normal Humanoid monsters and give a needed pick me up to the non-humanoid ones as well.

    Players don’t seem to fear Goblins, for example, any more. They know everything about them. Throw in some mutations, and they will rightfully so fear them…

    Thanks, as always, for sharing!
