So I don't usually write reviews.
But I just can't resist to tell anyone how great this RPG is.
I am playing RPG for over 20 years now, and I have to say, that this game introduce a lot of great ideas.
In my opinion a lot of RPGs this days are almost copy & paste ideas with different framework.
Mutant introduce new way of play, it's in some aspect similar to video games. That you explore the map (sectors), you are building a base, and there is a lot of random aspects etc. The first time I was reading this book I didn't recognize that there is a big Meta Plot behind whole game, and I love it.
At first I thought that this game was just about "how to connect few One-Shoots into the game", but when I recognize the metaplot it turned upside down everything for me.
I think that rules are cool, and definitely also introduce new mechanics.
As every RPG this one also have some flaws, but their are very minor.
For example I think that there could more Roles in the book (we have 8 but to be honest no one want to play Slave, and Boss role is also very specific).
Also I just run one scenario when we were using "all random", and it's just not working as you expect. It's slowing the game to much, so right now I just have ~10 random sectors prepared earlier, and when my players enter new sector I am just selecting (randomly) one of those.
I have already read 3 other books: Elysium, Mechatron, Genlab, and I love every one of them. The ideas are great, and reading every of them I am just crying to my pillow that I don't have time to run game in every one of those.
