“Oh no! There goes Tokyo!”
Michael Surbrook, Mobius Worlds Publishing’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 monstrosities 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 to launch at your heroes and ruin their world – Atomic Wasps, a Giant Sea Scorpion, and Radioactive Sentient Slime Mold (from Space)!
