Fifth Edition Fallout Sourcebook

Originally posted as a series of articles, the rules and content developed in this series have now been collated into a single rulebook for ease of reference. Additional rules and rules fixes will be incorporated into this pdf over time, so it will always remain the most current version of the Fifth Edition Fallout rules and may differ from the version of the game described in the original article series. The Fifth Edition Fallout sourcebook also contains an evolving bestiary of monster statblocks, updated occasionally with new creatures.

You can use anything to represent these counters (poker chips, cards, etc.), but you may wish to download the Counter Pack for its tailor made Fallout themed counter designs. May I suggest gluing them to bottlecaps and artificially weathering them to create a set of truly immersive tabletop accessories?

The Counter Pack comes in two flavours, depending on your printing needs:
