I had the occasion to play a roleplaying game again this december. We played a one shot of Other Dust.
We all choose to roll up mutants and we ended up with a really weird group that really din't look like the characters on the cover of the book.
We lost two characters during our venture to bring back a water filter for our village. I liked how each time a replacing character was introduced, this added setting detail and fleshed out the "dungeon".
Strangely none of the replacing character were mutants.
