    For those who have Fantasy Grounds, which is a client to play tabletop RPGs over the internet with all your internet chums, they have just released the pen and paper version of Fallout RPG for their client. It's $44.95US, and can also be purchased on Steam for the same price.

    Adapted from the 438-page hardbound rulebook features a gorgeous cover design evoking the iconic Vault-Tec jumpsuit. Inside, you will find rules and lore for roleplaying in the Fallout world, as well as concept art from the Fallout videogames. Utilizing Modiphius' celebrated 2d20 cinematic role-playing system, the Fallout RPG will take players on an exciting journey into the post-apocalypse!

    Create your own survivors, super mutants, ghouls, and even Mister Handy robots. Immerse yourselves in the iconic post-nuclear apocalyptic world of Fallout, while gamemasters guide their group through unique stories and encounters. The 2d20 edition of Fallout is as close to the bottlecap bartering, wasteland wandering, Brotherhood battling excitement as you can get.

    So, if you were thinking there wasn't a Hell of a lot of "RPG" in Fallout 4 or Fallout 76, and you still have a scratch to itch, and you have friends that are also itchy, there's your outlet. I honestly don't know anything about the ruleset for the tabletop adaptation, but the manual is over 400 pages. There has to be something there.

    Yes, out of the 2179 DLC for Fantasy Grounds Unity, this is one of the more expensive ones.

    2d20 system? Weird, never tried it.

    Also I hope most of the 438p. are setting info, otherwise it's a bloated mess.

    Usually I'd say that just means it is detailed, which is a good thing.

    Then again, they adapted Fallout 4 for this, so I doubt you could possibly fill even 100 pages with rules.

    Ugh. I came really close to making a joke about them adapting Fallout 4 so you wouldn't need dice. I'm guessing it's more of a picture book than a rules book then.
