Just watched the Road Warrior.

Just watched the Road Warrior. What’s the best system for a post-apocalyptic game in the vein of Mad Max where water and gasoline is scarce and the roads are ruled by brutal savages? I really want something where guns are rare but do exist and every bullets count, that scene where it’s revealed that Max tricked the gyro captain with a fake shotgun and the one shell that refuses to go of are some of the more iconic scenes to me. Gotta have vehicular combat rules of course. No Apocalypse World narrativist nonsense.

    Dude, Cars Wars was basically Mad Max with the IP stripped off of it. It is essentially 100% vehicular combat (don't know if they were branched out; Only remember it from back in the day).

      For vehicle combat, you could look at Gaslands or as suggested, Car Wars.

    A system you make for yourself will match your preferences and intentions the best, much better than a printed product from people guessing what their market wants, people who often just put that product out to get money for it, and a product that the company and its fans will expect you to change anyway.
    Accounting for a group, the best option is to tailor things to what is unanimously/by majority agreed upon before play starts, and to run things as they were agreed upon. Running things to you and your group's preferences is the most commonly recommended method anyway, so the base product makes very little difference.

    It isn't that hard to figure out.

    Car Wars and upscale it to fit matchbox/hotwheels cars. Article is in an early autoduel quarterly

    I also made templates for steering, which sped things up.

    Made little turrets for the cars and everything.

    Never played Atomic Highway but it looks cool.

    Have you seen the other films?

    Thunderdome shows off, well, the iconic thunderdome. Two-Men Enter, One Man Leaves. So Mad Max has a bloodsport element that can also be engaged in. It also features the characters using a train powered by methane.

    Fury Road also introduces the Triumvirate between the Citadel, Gas Town, and the Bullet Farm that together can field a large army. This is also expanded in the Video-Game and obviously the prequel coming out but I haven't seen that yet.

      There are only 3 Mad Max films. The others are a PlayStation 2 racing game and Game of Thrones: Mad Max edition.

            What exactly didn't you like about it? I'll admit the ending is kinda rushed with its conclusion but you can say the same for the other movies as well. The main antagonist who killed his family is killed by a random truck in the first movie.

              Nta, but I disliked how it's just 2 hours of car chase, with absolutely everything being over-the-top.
              Don't get me wrong. It's a decent action romper. I just beg to question why even calling it Mad Max

              Mainly that there was no Mel and it was obviosuly Miller tranitioning the series into Mad Maxine. I felt the world presented had a circus like quality that seemed more absurd than the older films in which it felt more deranged or real I guess. Hemsworths fake nose isn't helping any on that score. I won't say Fury Road is a bad film but it's overrated and wasn't what I wanted from a 4th Mad Max film.

                The movie had been in development hell since 98 but has largely had the same script throughout the years. The big difference is that it was originally going to star Mel as an older Max and one of the original endings was going to be Max joining Furiosa and the wives in the citadel at the end essentially ending his arc and letting him retire peacefully. Once Mel got too old and lost interest in the role the movie was rewritten with a younger Max in mind.

                Nta, but
                >Once Mel got too old
                Yeah, let's hire the guy who played Toe-Cutter, that's no issue
                >and lost interest
                He never did

                What happened was studio telling Miller that if he wants to get this project done, he needs younger, bankable star in it or at least someone they can put on posters and average 20 yo can recognise.
                And eventually Miller caved in. For his credit, the negotiations on this issue were going for five fricking years, so the man deserves a cookie for at least trying to not give up on this idea.

          Fury Road is Road Warrior with modern Hollywood budget and without the stuff that made Road Warrior good.
          Pro-tip: it wasn't the action sequences and stunts.

    Horizon Redline by FFG is the best game for this low level of post-apoc that I've come across.

    GURPS Lite with After the End expansion. 100 pages of the only rules you will ever need, but will cover everything
    >b-but GURPS
    Fine, then there is Ubiquity. They even had a post-apo game, even if fantasy in nature of the setting. But still, it works just fine.

      Why would you ever recommend this
      I very nearly never played GURPS because everyone said to get new players in it with Lite, but luckily I pulled out all the stops and showed my players the glorious autism of the Basic Set, sparking instant interest

    D20 had a book called Redline, which was very well done. Could probably be ported D&D system of your choice without too much work.
