The Fallout: Wasteland Warfare roleplaying game expansion will build on the narrative wargame​ experience of the tabletop miniatures game, and will include new rules for character creation, creating adventures in the wasteland, and more.

​Fallout: Wasteland Warfare game designer James Sheahan is developing the roleplaying game expansion, that will let you explore the desolate wasteland of the Fallout universe, fight terrifying mutated creatures and encounter the denizens who make the wasteland their home.

Delve into abandoned Vaults, ruined cities, strange facilities, and antiquated military bases. Encounter Super Mutants, Raiders, Survivors, Vault Dwellers, the Brotherhood of Steel, the Institute and the Enclave, and many more! Will you roam wide and far, or build up and protect your settlement? For those who want to create their own unique characters, use the faction based Archetype cards to start your own hero and see them grow from adventure to adventure.

Modiphius are developing two unique tabletop roleplaying game products based on the Fallout® videogame franchise. The first expanding on the narrative wargame experience of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, their licensed tabletop miniatures game, while a second more traditional tabletop RPG will follow using the company’s 2d20 System (as seen in Mutant Chronicles, Infinity, Conan, Star Trek Adventures, and John Carter of Mars) in 2020.
Build your crew from a wide range of factions, allies and iconic characters from the FALLOUT series, or even create your own, and play in apocalyptic roleplaying adventures across the wasteland!
Designed for 1 Gamemaster and up to 6 players, aged 14+

The Roleplaying Game Expansion will let players take the popular narrative experience of the Fallout: Wasteland Warfare miniatures game even further, by expanding their collection.

Not me. Never played Fallout and not much love for the 2d20 system despite having tried very hard.

I sort of like Fallout 4 (the only game in the series that I have played), but the 2d20 system isn't a big draw for me either. I might take a look simply to see if it could have ideas for post-apokalyptic games in general though...

I'm sure it will do very well. It will be picked up by those curious about tabletop RPGs but loyal lovers of the Fallout video game genre; Fallout itself inspired by the original Gamma World RPG. It has come full circle.

Raise your can of beer on high,
and seal your fate forever
The end of the world is nigh. :P

I did pick this up shortly after buying the Wasteland Warfare two-player starter set. It is NOT the 2d20-based RPG that they are still working on for fallout. It is based on the rules of the Wasteland Warfare miniatures game. The miniatures game has a lot of expansions. It features heavy use of chits for marking effects and such. My impression after scouring the web is that the appeal leans mostly to those who paint and modify the miniatures as well as craft terrain pieces for use in games. The RPG expansion just seems to provide a better basis to keep the game going in a persistent universe. That said, I can find NOTHING on the interwebs from people describing their personal Fallout RPG campaigns - setting start locations, adventures, interesting new PC's or NPC's or monsters they use, none of it.

I hope to continue to acquire more of the miniatures sets because I really do want to run a game of some kind in the Fallout universe with all kinds of terrain and such but for running that full-blown RPG I'm resting my hopes on the actual 2d20-based rules yet to be released.
