The Last Outpost Review

Just an aside but I love that name. It definitely sounds like a place where Armageddon Empires belongs. It also reminds me of one of my favorite stories by Sci Fi Grand Master Jack Vance called The Last Castle. If you buy The Last Castle / The Dragon Masters book you can read the story that gave me some of the inspiration behind the Mutants faction. Just a friendly word of warning though, if you pick up a Jack Vance book, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.

Anyway, Full Auto is a nice chap who took some super mutagen and waded into the game. He penned a great review titled Empirical Gaming. Here is one of my favorite observations from the review:

“The scramble and constant battle for all of these things, combined with game mechanics that let you stack the odds in your favour yet always allow chance a say, make the game compelling.”
