Hi All,
Has it been said in any of the 1st ed books, articles, etc. how much time has passed since the disaster?
"The Total Person in MetAl" (Dragon 14) mentions ninth generation mutants.
If we call a generation ~30 years that's 270 years.
I'm cool with that but has a tighter time been stated?
Thanks much,
Legion

...of course, technically, "ninth generation mutants" have to descend from a "non-mutant" stock. And it could have been more than one generation before you really had "mutants" per se. You could easily have any number of generations before you get to that first "mutant generation".

500-600 years would not be unreasonable.

I think that the 4E rulebook has a pretty extensive timeline for that version of the Warden. I'll have to look at it to see what they have to say.

Ah right. Of course.
Thanks for that observation.

Somewhere in one of the adventures there is a mention of 300 years since the radiation cloud. Now if I only remember where I saw that.

Yeah, I don't recall where I saw it either, but I know I saw that recently.
