    Welsh, I just thought you all would like to know one of my forum members made some paper minitures for Fallout PnP or Fallout: Warfare. They are quite nice and use the actual characters and critters out of Fallout 1 & 2. They are double sided with both a front and back to them. :D


    Cheers, Thorgrimm

    Thanks for the heads up Thorgrimm. Like those robot ones. Mr. Handy and the Deathclaw look really good.

    Welsh, I have a new item Mckye has created for PnP, a Fallout Character Generator Excel Spreadsheet. The thing is quite detailed and has everything including weapons and ammo all detailed on the sheet. Check it out, it is a great GM tool. :D

    Questions about Jason Micals PnP 2.0

    Well, it's been a long time since the last post here but maybe someone can answer my questions anyway:

    1. I'm a little confused about the ghoul race's RAD resistance. In the 2.0 rulebook it says that they have a 80% resistance which is pretty low for a race that enjoys living in old nuclear powerplants (in Matthew Standly's adittions it's even lowered to 60%!)
    I mean I don't really get it. Shouldn't it be either 100% (since they don't get any negative radiation effects) or 0% (because I don't think their body is fighting against the rads that enter him, after all rads are good for ghouls). But if ghouls have 60% or 80% it means they CAN get hurt by the rads so how can they be good for them? How can ghouls feel better in a powerplant if rads hurt them? And wouldn't glowing ones hurt themselves?

    2. Is there some kind of good alternative way to calculate the damage without having to calculate the damage resistance % all the time? They are the only part that really annoys me about the system, but I don't want to just skip them either since that would unbalance the the weapon - armor balance.

    Hope someone can help me.

    Simple: The Rad Resistance for a ghoul should work differently. I use a house rule for ghouls; The rad resistance for a ghoul modifies their healing rate instead of damaging them. A ghoul would want as low a Rad resistance as Possible... Ground Zero Radiation (1000 Rads/Min) at a Rad Resist of 0 would heal approzimately 1000 hit points after 12 hours of exposure. Unfortunately, though, I also incorporate Feral Ghouls into the mix, and Radiation makes them crazy. If you're a ghoul and you're hanging out at the glow... you're nuts (or will be soon)

    I was interested in the idea of PnP roleplaying, and after some thoughts I decided to go for GURPS rather than SPECIAL. I dunno, it just seemed less complex yet quite flexible.


    The site's in French, but the actual documents are in English. Unluckily it utilises some stuff from Tactics (and possibly 3), making it not very respectful to canon. When it comes to weapons, that's a complete blow. All the author did was copy-paste the original and add some actual Fallout weapons (not even all of them).

    Other than that, great source. Just add your own imagination, modify the documents, add in new factions, some weapons, settlements and backstory and you're done.

    I'm planning on using a ruleset called Fallout Faster. It's really lite, but apart from perks (a bestiary would have been appreciated as well), it has everything you'd want from a Fallout rpg; radiation, different character origins, skills, Fallout gear (with nifty equipment cards too, definitely making those).

    Edit: Another highlight is that each armour has different values depending on type of damage, from standard bullets, lasers, plasma, explosives and incendiary.
