Monster: Porker
Gamma World Excerpts

Gamma Terra is sick with mutants, monsters, killer robots, and dimension-hopping aliens. Most would as soon use your skin for a coat as look at you, so it’s usually better to shoot first and determine what you were aiming at after the radiation level drops off.

The chaos of collapsed time lines, lethal radiation, toxic sludge, and super-science weapons gone astray has pushed most beings to the brink of extinction. Those who have survived did so through superior genes, accidental mutation, or beneficial time line flux. Now, hundreds of years after the event that decimated the civilization of the Ancients (the Big Mistake), monsters roam the world.

Some wander the wastes, other s prowl the ruins of cities, and a few reside in Ancient bunkers, still on guard despite centuries of inactivity.

Porker (Road Hog)

Check out that Fat Boy—no, I meant the motorcycle.

Roaming the wastes of Gamma Terra are gangs of greedy, callous marauders: Porkers are a race of intelligent, mutated pigs. They love Ancient technology, especially firearms and internal combustion engines—the bigger and louder, the better. They have a knack for jury-rigging and salvage, so a porker gang can keep a handful of Ancient motorcycles and fuel stills in working order.
