Fallout: The Roleplaying Game: Winter of Atom PDF


Immerse yourself in a whiteout nuclear winter in the first quest book for Fallout: The Roleplaying Game.

In the ruins of old Boston, the Commonwealth settles in for a long, deadly winter. As its hungry communities do their best to find food and survive the cold, a new sect of the Church of the Children of Atom arrives. Their flock grows as they spread their worship of nuclear division and radiation across the region. Led by an enigmatic prophet calling himself the Last Son of Atom, the Church’s army plans to ignite an all-out winter war with the settlements that dare reject their atomic god. A group of ragtag survivors must do whatever it takes to protect their communities and keep the Commonwealth from becoming ground zero… again.

Winter of Atom’s themes include exploring frozen wastelands, harsh winter survival, building relationships with communities, explosive action against terrifying monsters, high-stakes warfare against a relentless foe, and weird and unexplainable supernatural horrors.

Within the 248-page Winter of Atom quest book PDF you will:

  • Face a fearsome sect of the Children of Atom, led by the Last Son of Atom, in an action-packed, open-ended and non-linear sandbox questline that can take characters from level 1 - 21.
  • Meet brand new groups of survivors, from beatniks and circus big tops, to traveling casinos and religious weaponsmiths.
  • Create characters with new origin options: Generation 3 Synths, Protectrons, and Children of Atom.
  • Enhance your game with new rules for surviving the harsh winter and gaining reputation with settlements. Learn how to design balanced combat encounters, and find new rules for surviving defeat, quickly adjusting an encounter’s difficulty, and creating Minion NPCs.

This PDF requires the core rules found in the Fallout: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook but could be played using the rules and pregen characters found in the Fallout: The Roleplaying Game Starter Set.

Is running this in the Commonwealth a "hard requirement" or is it easily adapted to different locations?
My table is more focused in the Great Lakes region, at the moment.

I don't think WoA has to be tied to any specific location. There are some fun callouts to Fallout 4 but you can likely adapt those. The only tricky bit could be a significant event tied to Boston harbor but since you have the Great Lakes right there, you can likely adapt it to fit your game.

A clarification to David's review.

Modiphius will have system stuff tucked into big adventures and then put the system stuff together by itself later. I have all the Alien line and they do this there as well (so I would assume they do it in other lines as well). For example: Destroyer of Worlds character options and equipment were also in the stand alone Colonial Marines book. Heart of Darkness stuff is in Building Better Worlds.

If you want a campaign to start off with, get this book. If you just want to options, get the Settlers Guide.

Further point of clarification - Fallout is published by Modiphius, Alien is published by Free League. There is no collaboration between the two on the Alien RPG other than Free League allowing Modiphius to sell their games on the Modiphius website.

I wish I could review this campaign but since I bought it straight from Modiphius, I can't. Suffice to say, "Winter of Atom" is as good as any Fallout video game Bethesda made and better than some. If New Vegas was the high-water mark for the series, this might even be better. It's pretty amazing.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
