And more Apocalypse

Have you ever played Dungeonslayers? It's a cool little fantasy game with a fairly simple system. Well, the game has spawned some spin offs including Gammaslayers, a post-apocalypse version which recently sprung up. The problem? It's in German! The solution/ I have access to Google Traslate as well as some basic university-level German. As of now I'm doing a rough translation, and once I am done I'll go back over it with a fine toothed comb and iron out any weirdness. As a sample, here is the introduction!

The End Times

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. - Albert Einstein

The post-apocalypse. Irradiated wastelands. Lost ruined cities. Plagued seas and rivers. The world and civilization is at its end. Water and gasoline have become precious. Technology is rare and barely understood. Mutation is ubiquitous. Noble techknights in power armor, mutants, deadly assassins, irradiated cannibals, unscrupulous bandits, power hungry warlords, lost junkies, crazy robots, religious fanatics, tough Tank Girls, brutal slave hunters, enthusiastic settlers and mad scientists all share this world. And in the middle, stuck between mutants and refugees, are your characters: the ones who want to bring order to chaos, or perhaps the ones who would rather search for power, money, sex, technology and knowledge.

Mad Max meets Judge Dredd, Metro 2033 meets Hellgate: Longdon, Blood of Heroes meets Waterworld, Resident Evil meets The Day After Tomorrow, Solarbabies meets Fallout, I Am Legend meets 28 Days Later, Terminator meets Screamers, and the Hunger Games meets Death Race. So if you want to spend your evening slaying mutants and zombies, grab a d20, a chainsaw and your power armor, and let's get started.
