Atomic Monsters (Hero System)
"Oh no! There goes Tokyo!
Michael Surbrook¸ Evil Beagle's resident scholar and master-of-cleverness¸ turns his gaze to another region of popular culture as he explores the genre launched by 1954's Them! Irradiated monstrocities are a whole new kind of challenge for your heroes¸ coming from an old-yet-still-compelling source.
Atomic Monsters is a concise¸ easy-to-consume¸ immediately useful treatise on how to create and use freakish monsters from atomic nightmares in your campaign. Sections include -
- It Came from Beneath the Sea: Where do these things come from?
- Them! What are these things¸ what do they want¸ and what do they eat?
- Crush¸ Crumble¸ and Stomp: The weapons of the beast!
- And much more!
Michael finishes up by giving you three sample creatures in Hero System 6th stats to launch at your heroes and ruin their world - Atomic Wasps¸ a Giant Sea Scorpion¸ and Radioactive Sentient Slime Mold (from Space)!
