Obligatory Top Ten Savage AfterWorld Posts of 2012

As we say goodbye to 2012, it's time for a little introspection as I review the activity of this blog for the last 365 days...

  • My output increased considerably this year, as I had 176 posts during 2012 -- 50 more than any previous year since The Savage AfterWorld began. That's one post every other day during the year.
  • After writing about Mutant Future for 4 years, I finally released my first RPG supplement for the system. The Deviant Database has been very well received and sales have been somewhat steady.
  • Thundarr Thursday went live at Gen Con this year as I ran Thundarr: Beyond the Dimensional Divide for 6 enthusiastic players. More Thundarr will be seen (and played) at other cons in 2013!

And here are the Top Ten posts for 2012:

  1. This Just In: TSR Games To Live Again - The breaking news of TSR's resurrection and Gygax Magazine's imminent release was the most-hit post of the year. I'll predict that my review of the first issue (if I can get my hands on it) will be just as popular.
  2. Gary Con Day 3: I Killed Andrew; Jim Killed Me; And Michael Killed Everyone Else - I got the chance to play Metamorphosis Alpha at Gary Con run by Mr. Jim Ward himself. The game was a comedy of errors, as this recap reveals.
  3. The World of Thundarr The Barbarian Sourcebook - Final Version Released - After several years of updates and additions, I finally put this august tome to bed by releasing the final update to the ultimate guide to the Thundarr-verse.
  4. Thundarr...Korgoth...Now GUNDARR! - After discovering this animated series, I had to share it with everyone.
  5. Doomsday Preppers Premieres February 7 - Any TV show based on the upcoming apocalypse is fodder for the blog and potential game inspriation.
  6. [Thundarr Thursday] Gen Con's "Thundarr the Barbarian: Across The Dimensional Divide" Available For Download - After a successful run at Gen Con, I posted the adventure so everyone could have a chance to ride with Thundarr, Ookla, and Ariel.
  7. How To Ensure There Won't Be A Second FLGS Visit - After seeking out a new game store to visit, I had to warn others of my lackluster visit.
  8. My Endless Quest Has Ended - After several years of collecting, I finally completed my collection of Endless Quest choose-your-own-adventure gamebooks.
  9. Deviant Database For Mutant Future Now Available! - The official release announcement of my Mutant Future bestiary. (And if you haven't grabbed one up yet, why not do it now?) 
  10. Savage Menagerie: Gallows - The only RPG supplemental material that made the list, this tree-dwelling octopus must have struck a chord in visitors.

And now, on to 2013! Thanks for the support!


  1. It was a great year. I'm looking forward to what you put do next!
