The year: 1994. From out of space comes arunaway planet, hurtling between the Earthand the Moon, unleashing cosmic destruction. Man's civilization is cast in ruin.Two-thousand years later, Earth is reborn...Astrange new world rises from the old: Aworld of savagery, super science, and sorcery. But one man bursts his bonds tofight for justice! With his companions Ooklathe Mok and Princess Ariel, he pits hisstrength, his courage, and his fabulous SunSword against the forces of evil.He is Thundarr the Barbarian! 
And with those words, Thundarr, Ookla the Mok,and Princess Ariel the Sorceress rode off to fightinjustice in a post-apocalyptic wasteland under ashattered moon. The cartoon series
Thundarr the Barbarian
ran for 21 episodes from 1980-1982, and it was imaginative fuel for many of my junior high
Gamma World 
games.Now here I am—27 years later—and I’m still afan of the show and of ruined-earth RPGs. After discovering the joys of 
Mutant Future
(rulesavailable for free at
www.goblinoidgames.com
), Idecided to create a blog named The SavageAfterWorld (
savageafterworld.blogspot.com
) andpopulate it with all of the mutants, ruins, andAncient artifacts I could recall from the RPGcampaigns of my youth. And I kept coming backto a certain barbarian and his companions for blog fodder. Thus began “Thundarr Thursday”where I would take some facet from the showand convert it for use with
Mutant Future
.Many readers of my blog have written to me,asking me to create a
Thundarr the Barbarian
 supplement for 
Mutant Future
. I obviouslycannot (and will not) create anything “official”due to the copyrights and trademarks involved.However, as my gift to my blog’s readers and tothe many fans of the show, I created thisdocument—a simple compilation of all Thundarr Thursday posts that have appeared on TheSavage AfterWorld in the past year.Gathered within is a cornucopia of Thundarr-related
Mutant Future
material including:
Three new PC character classes!
Five nefarious NPCs!
Nine new devices!
Twenty-five (!) new creatures!
And four adventures based on classicepisodes!It is hoped that you will enjoy reading thiscollection of blog posts and—perhaps—workingsome Thundarr-inspired adventure into your 
Mutant Future
campaign!

CHARACTER RACE: BARBARIAN
Hit Dice: 1d8 per point of CONMutations: noneBarbarians are the uncivilized nomads of theThundarr universe. Trained since birth in theways of combat and self-sufficiency, Barbariansare the natural survivors of the future Earth. It isassumed that Barbarians are part of a larger tribal race, but it is very rare to encounter morethan one or two Barbarians at a time. They areusually dressed in animal hides and furs, whichare decorated with bones and teeth of pasthunting victories.Barbarians appear to be an offshoot of PureStrain Humans although, unlike the typicalhumans encountered, they are muscular and ingood physical condition. Due to a lifetime of physical training, Barbarians gain +2 whenrolling for both Strength and Constitution.Because of their "hardiness," Barbarians roll 1d8per point of Constitution for their hit point totals.A Barbarian's true abilities lie within his acrobaticskills and heightened agility, enabling him tocommit almost superhuman feats. This is due tothe +3 Dexterity bonus gained when rolling up aBarbarian. Barbarians will never be encounteredwith any mutations. (In the Thundarr universe,mutations are usually limited to wizarddeformities or the dangerous monsters thatroam the wastelands.)Because of their savage outward appearanceand primitive way of speaking, a Barbarian maybe viewed as not very intelligent. In fact, theopposite is true: A Barbarian is incredibly clever and quick-witted. They do not receive a bonus or penalty when rolling for Intelligence. However,since Barbarians have not had much exposureto Ancient history, artifacts, and technology, theyhave a permanent -10% Technology RollModifier.But even though they may be ignorant of Ancient history and devices, a Barbarian is notdistrustful of technology and may even be foundusing an Ancient device comfortably. (For example, Zogar's cyborg arm.) Barbarians areusually armed with a special weapon that theyprefer in combat. The Mutant Lord may wish topresent the PC with a unique weapon to wield,i.e., Thundarr's Sun Sword, Zogar's FlamingTrident, or Shara's Skull Mace.Barbarians can be of either lawful or chaoticalignment, but because of their driving passionsand goals, Barbarians will never be of Neutralalignment. Barbarians are usually arrogant andstubborn, refusing to listen to reason until thesituation requires it. Barbarians are quick toaction as well, almost reckless in nature, as theyquickly grow impatient. They will be the first toenter combat, which - to them - is usually themost direct course of action for any situation.In spite of their hotheaded shortcomings,Barbarians can be fairly friendly and helpfulonce you get to know them and once they havegiven you their trust. Barbarians are fiercelyloyal to their friends, seeing the value of traveling in numbers with a like-minded group.Any Barbarians encountered who are travelingalone are usually of a self-serving chaotic natureand should be viewed with caution.
