My youngest lad and I are working on a game where one day every machine in the world comes alive and becomes a monster, like toasters and washing machines and cars etc. and players wander this post-apocalyptic world fighting and taming these monsters, and today they fought and tamed a monster-truck and I am happy because every machine becoming a living creature is better than zombies.

Maximum Overdrive is...well, not great, but a lot of fun, especially when watching with friends.

That’s the kind of lovely imagine-ate-ing that you can not buy.

Reminds me of an sf short story called “inanimate objection”, which I read a long time ago.

My basic rules so far after the first session (not sure if madness in the title is ableist) Metal Madness An Into the Odd / Lasers and Feelings mashup RPG set in a weird post-apocalyptic world. Abilities are Mettle and Madness, choose a number between 2 and 19, roll under on a d20 for successful Mettle based actions, over for Madness based actions. Rolls equal to that number are critical successes. Mettle covers conscious physical and mental attributes. Willpower, endurance, strength, attack, etc. Madness covers intuition and triggered response, or subconscious attributes. Perception, intelligence, charisma, etc. Roll 1d6 for Hit Points. Choose one of the following careers Tinks: make stuff Thumper: bash stuff Elmer: shoot stuff Buggs: heal stuff Careers give you a leeway of 1 on your rolls when performing an action associated with the career. As you progress, this leeway will grow. Foes are either human bandits or mechanical monsters like living monster trucks, washing machines, toasters, etc. These monsters have fleshy bits mixed with mechanical parts. Capturing and taming monsters is encouraged before killing. Combat is the same as Into the Odd...

Why Mettle when it can be directly Metal?
