Cartoon Action Hour Season 3 Released: Meet Snydorr, The Wasteland Wanderer!

One of my favorite RPGs of recent years is Cartoon Action Hour. As a fan of 80s retro-toons like Inhumanoids, GI Joe, Thundercats, and -- of course -- Thundarr the Barbarian, this RPG seems to "get it." I played with both Seasons 1 and 2 of the system, and was thrilled when I found out earlier this year that Spectrum Games had started a Kickstarter for an updated Season 3. I immediately jumped in as a higher-level backer. And today, Cartoon Action Hour Season 3 was released to the masses!

I'm thumbing through the new rules, and they once again nailed it. The character sheet is the back of an action figure box, for Pete's sake! I'll discuss the game at length later when I've had a chance to digest it all, but if you're a fan of retro-toons and have wanted to play in the worlds of Visionaries, The Masters of the Universe, Transformers, or M.A.S.K., you will want to check this out.

Oh, and about that "higher-level backer" reward I received? I was able to have myself drawn up for the rulebook and statted up as a character from an 80s retro-toon! And, of course, I chose a post-apocalyptic universe for my setting. So, here he is, straight from the cartoon world of "Wasteland 2010" (an upcoming post-apocalyptic CAH sourcebook): Meet Snydorr, The Wasteland Warrior!


  1. I'm super tickled that you like the book, Tim. And equally tickled that you enjoyed the retro-toon "you". :)

  2. That's real awesome! Hey, they forgot one important quality: "Will edit indie RPGs for free": I think that should be at the top of the list, being a most excellent trait. This sounds a great game and the design sound quite cool: I'll take a look.
