So you need a monster to challenge your uber tier Gamma World characters? Look no further! Adapted straight from 1st Edition Gamma World, here’s the death machine!

“20 meters long, 9 meters wide, 4 meters high, with many knobby projections all over,” the death machine is the ultimate enemy for your adventurers.

A recent thread on the official D&D Gamma World forum inspired me to finish writing up my rules for higher level characters.

While the D&D Gamma World game only allows character advancement to level 10, the related Dungeons & Dragons game goes up to level 30 in three tiers: Heroics (1 to 10), Paragon (11 to 20), and Epic (21 to 30).

These house rules expand D&D Gamma World to level 20 by introducing the Uber Tier (11 to 20).

Uber tier characters:

  • Continue to advance in level as before, gaining 5 hit points per level, as well as level-dependent increases to attacks.
  • Gain permanent Alpha Mutations which don’t change at the end of rests or due to Alpha Flux.
  • Gain additional Uber Feature choices while advancing in level.
  • Continue to gain Vocation Feats. Uber tier characters invariably have multiple vocations.
  • Do additional damage with basic attacks.
  • Pick a Survivor Path which gives them access to Survivor Path powers – novice, utility, and expert powers that aren’t based directly on their origins.
  • Gain Survivor Path traits including critical hit benefits at 13th and 17th levels.
  • Increase one ability score – based on Survivor Path – at 12th level and again at 18th level.
