Mad Max: Fury Road Car Porn

Fury Road was a tour de force of heavy metal post apocalyptic car porn, and I loved every minute of it.

A movie like that deserves a great RPG! There have been many post-apocalyptic RPG's, my favorite has always been 2nd edition Gamma World, but I did briefly get into Car Wars. While I liked it the tone was a little too silly, and the rules unnecessarily complicated, so my interest in it waned quickly. I've often thought of designing a new Mad Max style RPG using the OSR style like Swords & Wizardry. But it would take some heavy modification and a lot of play testing. The star of the show would really have to be car-to-car battles and the ability to modify and upgrade your vehicles. I'd want to capture that dramatic, cinematic action like in Mad Max somehow.

This gallery of the cars made for Fury Road is a visual feast. You can really enjoy all the details that went into the designs.

  1. The Road Hogs supplement for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game had a fun (and simple) system for making cars and for car to car combat.

    1. oh, yeah, thanks for reminding me! Palladium's Ninja Turtle RPG was truly outstanding, and there was an After the Bomb supplement. You know, in many ways it was "Gamma World done right".
