D&D Fifth Edition Fallout

An Open Call For Fallout Art

I'd love to add some art to Fifth Edition Fallout and liven up its pages. Have you created any Fallout fan art? Please reach out if you'd be willing for your fan art to be featured and fully credited in the Fifth Edition Fallout sourcebook.

Version Notice!

Fifth Edition Fallout has been updated to version 1-0-3 —

If the version of Fifth Edition Fallout you're using is 1-0-2 or earlier, you should download version 1-0-3 below as it includes new monsters, corrections, and formatting fixes. New content in Version 1-0-2 includes statblocks for all kinds of Mirelurks, Gatorclaws, and the following new templates for altering monsters statblocks: Albino, Cunning, Hulking, Glowing, Legendary, Nuklear, Resilient, and Swift. This update also includes subraces for the Human and an updated section on classes and archetypes to reflect the newly released Xanathar's Guide to Everything.

Character Sheets!
I have created a character sheet for Fifth Edition Fallout which includes features that won't appear on typical D&D sheets, such as the Luck ability, Radiation Threshold, Power Armour, and others. Links to the two versions of this sheet can be found in the Fifth Edition Fallout Resources section of this page.

Coming up in version 1-0-4:
The next update is "Bugs", including bloatflies, bloodbugs, bloodworms, cave crickets, cazadores, giant mantises, radroaches, radscorpions, and stingwings.

When ready, the update will be announced on this blog and on twitter.

Fifth Edition Fallout is a system hack designed to allow post-apocalyptic themed gameplay using the D&D 5e tabletop roleplaying game. Specifically, it was created to emulate the setting of the popular Fallout videogame franchise.

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.

Fifth Edition Fallout Adventures

A Date with the Queen is a 1st-level starting adventure for use with these rules. In it, the inhabitants of Mart Town are being hassled by a group of raiders known as the Wasteland Queens due to the gang leader's romantic infatuation with one of their own.

Counter Packs

Fifth Edition Fallout Sourcebook contain optional rules for tracking the effects of radiation damage using resources called Geiger Counters. It will also include optional methods of tracking fluctuating scores such as Luck, Dehydration, and Starvation.

If you choose to adopt these rules you can use anything as 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:

Although an unrelated product, you may wish to consider using the post-apocalyptic themed player classes in my release Wasteland Wanderers, as they are a great fit for a game of Fifth Edition Fallout.
