Train2Game News Fallout 2D20 Tabletop Game

Modiphius Entertainment, the London-based tabletop game publisher of Fallout®: Wasteland Warfare and The Elder Scrolls®: Call to Arms miniatures games, today revealed key details about their pen and paper role-playing adaptation of the immensely popular Fallout series.

In Fallout 2D20, players will create their own survivors, super mutants, ghouls, and even Mister Handy robots, and immerse themselves in the iconic post-nuclear apocalyptic world while gamemasters guide their group through unique Fallout stories in a format made popular by games like Dungeons & Dragons, Call of Cthulhu, and Pathfinder. For tabletop RPG fans, this 2D20 edition of Fallout is as close to the bottlecap-bartering, wasteland wandering, super mutant battling excitement of Fallout you can get.

Available now for pre-order, the 400-page hardbound rulebook features a gorgeous cover design evoking the iconic Vault-Tec jumpsuit. Inside, players 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! Also available is a bevy of post-apocalyptic-themed accessories including a custom dice set, a gamemaster’s toolkit, and even more supplements to come!

Thanks to the easy learning curve of Modiphius’ 2D20 system, newcomers to tabletop roleplaying will be able to learn as they play with a starter set designed just for them. The starter set includes pre-made characters, quick-start rules, a set of custom dice, and an original questline designed by Modiphius Entertainment — all presented in a handy softback booklet.

Eager vault dwellers can place their orders now, at Modiphius.net and participating retailers.

The Steam Digital Tabletop Fest features games that run across the lines between digital and physical games; this can be a digital port of a physical game, a game which has produced a physical version from the digital one, a game that simulates the physical play experience, or a digital game whose aesthetics are inspired by tabletop games.
