[Resources] Logan's Run

A society that limits the ages of it's citizens! A group of soldiers that enforce it! A giant cuisinart that chops people up while surrounded by cheering crowds! A post-apocalyptic world beyond the city! A secret path to escape! Crazy robots and old men surrounded by cats!

Logan's Run (1976) has all of this, plus the cheesy goodness of 1970s science fiction! And it spawned a 14 episode TV series with some familiar faces.

It's a great movie with lots that inspired some of our greatest RPGs. The film is a mish-mash of different games.

I can see at least three!

You can see the corporate drones and security from Cyberpunk 2020 in the city's bland, futuristic society. You can see the Computer from the Paranoia RPG running the show, following it's crazy programming. You can see out-of-control robots from the Gamma World RPG in the crazy robot Box, following it's crazy programming.

Give this old gem a viewing. It won't disappoint.
