Mutant Bikers of the Atomic Wastelands

MBAW is a very simple post-apocalyptic game based on the FUDGE rules, stripped down to just a handful of skills and whole lot of attitude. The skills all have silly names like “Take it Like a Man” or “Figure Stuff Out”. MBAW is by design a beer and pretzel game. Create some wacky characters and watch them go in a spectacular in a ball of flames. That’s pretty much it.

Excerpt: 

Welcome to Mutant Bikers of the Atomic Wastelands, the post-apocalypse game of big guns, big bikes and diminutive IQs. In MBAW you play the role of a Wastelands bikers (mutant optional). Wasteland bikers are free spirited individuals who live a nomadic existence roaming across the ruins of the Atomic Wastelands. They ride from town to town on their powerful motorcycles, sometimes alone, sometimes in small groups, searching for fuel and spare parts so that they can keep riding from town to town and carrying on searching for fuel and spare
parts.

Bikers value their freedom (to ride from town to town...) and their bikes above all else. They hate the gangers, who threaten their freedom and pity the 'peds' (pedestrians – folks without wheels). What Wasteland bikers fear the most is losing their bikes and becoming a ped themselves.

Set in a vague not-so-distant future, the world of MBAW is an anarchic, barbaric and dangerous place. The bikers share the Wastelands with murderous gangs, deranged paramilitary groups and horrific radioactive mutant monsters.
