The monday design
So I have been thinking about "fun" games and I thought I would add this little treat for people in my games. One of the fun D&D adventures I had the chance to play in as a kid was Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. It had futuristic weapons and enemies and it was all around fun.
When Gamma World came out last year I instantly wondered how a 4e treatment of it would be. So I made a simple minion just to test it. Very simple and to the point.
My thoughts for the sergeant would be that he has an encounter power that he can have a minion ally take a free ranged attack against his marked target.
Edit: And I went and did it. I thought about the marking and chose not to do it. The vs. Reflex might get changes. I used Gamma World as an inspiration for the laser attacks, which I might reconsider at some point.
There are some minor edits I need to make but this is the final versions that I might use at some point in a game if I were to run a return to Barrier Peaks
