Children of the Atom - Kim Eastland

The [thing=45410][/thing] version of Project Wideawake, Children of the Atom called itself the official guidebook to mutants.  That means the good and the bad.  And there is a lot of bad in this one.

Compare 100 pages of this to 200+ of Champions Worldwide.  Great value character density thanks to the triple column format and simple but descriptive game stats of MSH.  Best value monster manual style supplement I ever came across that wasn't a GHOTMU.

It wasn't just my imagination over the years how good a deal this one was :-

1.84 Character Density [Otherwise know as The Leader]
