Gamma World/Alternity Trial By Fire PBEM
I participated in a PBEM called Trial by Fire run by Thorn
The rules were a total hack of Gamma World 4th Edition and Alternity. Since the
game was started before anyone even knew WOTC was thinking about doing an
Alternity/GW book, the characters are total hybrids that don't follow any rules
but house rules.
I can no longer find the Yahoo group where this fun game was hosted.
Below, I have included the profile of the character I created for the PBEM.
Remember, it is a true hybrid rules creation so it will look a little crazy to
those who follow either Gamma World 4th Ed. or Alternity.
You can read some of Flametongue's back history in my original fiction section.
Alternity WitchSpace PBEM
Okay, Okay, it's not really Gamma World..in fact it is Alternity space opera at
its best, but I put it here anyway because of the character I sometimes write
about (see below).
runs this wonderful PBEM.
I don't participate as a player, but rather write the part of a major,
intergalactic villan I created named Nehemiah Thrash.
I guess I place it here because I created him as if he were a Gamma World
Alternity character. He was raised in the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Gamma
Terra, where he survived, and eventually found himself in the general galactic
population after finding passage off planet. He is a mutant mindwalker of the
highest order, and is one cruel villan.
You can read Nehemiah's Story in my contributions to the PBEM in my original
You can visit the Alternity Witchspace Community page on
There's also a group page at phpnet.
*** Spoiler Alert ***
Below, I have included the profile of the character I created for the PBEM. Please, if you are a player of the game, don't look at this NPC in case you actually face him one day. Thorn has numerous plots, subplots, and alternate story lines, but you never know when you might run into him.
