"It's not Muppets on crack. It's crack that has come alive and is smoking Muppets."

That quote from the Mutha Oith website somehow seems extremely fitting for this quirky series of miniatures that could be described as having channeled the spirits of Jim Henson and Salvador Dalí after they consulted with H.R. Giger.

I watched this Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1359565526/low-life-mini...) from nearly the beginning. The artwork was oddly intriguing, but I was very skeptical how the sketches would translate to miniatures.

Then, the greens started showing up and I was extremely impressed. I jumped in at the "Croach with the moach" level.

But, what do I do with them once I have them. Of course they do have their RPG series set in Mutha Oith, but I haven't really been into RPG's for 10-15 years... mainly board games now.

So, this list is like the list I created for the Reaper Kickstarter trying to figure out what games work with the minis, other than the obvious... Low Life.

I'm seriously considering getting a Great Cornthulhu add-on to oversee our games.

Replace the heroes with cremefillians and venture forth vs. the rest.



Of course, the warrior class could also be guys with killin' sticks.



I was really impressed with how well these two translated from sketch to miniature.

I haven't really tried matching the miniatures to petz, but I wonder how many might match up.

From the green of the Scarier A** Mutha he might make a great pet. But, is he vegetarian, carnivore or omnivore?

I'm sure a scenario could be adapted to Mutha Oith.

Really any edition of D&D, Pathfinder, etc could use these. With the focus on the trippy faewild in 4th edition, First Realm in Pathfinder, and ionsane Errol Otus art from 1st edition, these would add a great feel to many scenarios!

The core rules already use the Savage Worlds base system, and the upper level packages include free pdf's of expansion books! There's even a free adventure ready to go!

The heroscape community has always been inventive to making up stats for new creatures, and the game itself already has a kitchen sink mentality, where trolls, pirates, space marines and giant bugs face off. Why not add snot monsters to the mix?

This is a no brainer.

I'll use the Horde of Scary Ass Mutha to make a Dreadball team !
Then I can use the Scrarier Ass Mutha to make a MVP player, and the Queen Mutha to make a Keeper.
This is so obvious

This is probably a no-brainer, but it is a fast play, distilled version of the RPG intended to be played as a tabletop miniatures games.

There's a free download of the rules here: http://www.peginc.com/shop/savage-worlds-showdown/

This one includes custom force rules and an acompanying points system. The game's setting is more serious, but the basic premise is that planets are sucked into a new dimension by "the Maw". Who's to say "Mutha Oith" isn't sucked into the Maw....

Another game that is downloadable for free and includes custom force creation. Also a post-apocalyptic setting. Based on what I've ready so far, it would fit pretty well, especially if you used the entire Low Life setting for it (rather than its own setting).

For years after this came out, everyone was talking about wanting custom replacements for the wooden discs and cubes in this game. Maybe your farming family consists of a few Cremefillians. And certainly the grain could be replaced with Coblins. etc.
