Simian Saturday

Well Jeff's Gameblog has Shatnerday, so I thought I'd start up Simian Saturday.  In case you all hadn't figured it out I'm a big fan of apes in comics, movies and fiction!  Thought the above comic cover might inspire your Mutant Future (or Encounter Critical) Campaigns.
Good Gaming -B


  1. Excellent. Shall we be seeing a regular Simian Saturday? I am intrigued to see just how extensive your primate resources are.

  2. Thanks for the comments guys,
    I'll try to post something "Simian Related" on a regular basis. : )

  3. Oh man, I so remember those Planet of the Apes magazines. The retellings of the movies were not so good, as I recall, but the original stories were really well worth reading.

  4. i cant wait to see these guys . . .

    “hairless except for an enormous shock of bristly hair upon its head . . . The thing which more resembled our earthly men than it did the Martians I had seen, held me pinioned to the ground with one foot, while it jabbered and gesticulated at some answering creature behind me. The other, which was evidently its mate, soon came toward us, bearing a mighty stone cudgel with which it evidently intended to brain me. . .
    The creatures were about ten to fifteen feet tall, standing erect, and had like the green Martian, an intermediary set of arms or legs, midway between the upper and lower limbs. Their eyes were close together and non-protruding; their ears were high set, but more laterally located than those of the Martians, while their snouts and teeth were striking like those of our African gorilla.” (Princess of Mars, pp.34-35)
