Savage Island Encounters
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/14/2015 14:09:11
This is a damn fine product that covers the bases of pulpy lost world goodness with plenty of encounters, ideas, and everything that you need to populate an island or lost world. Everything here is striped down to the bone and ready to go straight out the door for you to do either a long term or a pick up game as you like. For the price point this is a solid investment for the DYI dungeon master to add or subtract as needed.
The pdf is easy on the eyes and the printer, I was able to turn this around within a night and get it at my table in fifteen minutes. The encounters adapt to just about any system or rpg with an adventure theme. The encounters could be used for everything from post apocalyptic to full on full lost world. The ideas here are both cheesy and fun to play with Dave knows his subject and how to get his play on with this project. The book is well done and very easy to use across the board. This is a tool kit that allows the DM to put his players right into the thick of it.
This whole product is fun straight out of the gate and does exactly what it says on the package. There's encounter after cheesy encounter that can be used for a wide variety of things from Call of Cthulhu to full on old school OD&D. There is a lot of fun to be had with this title. My suggestion is to grab it and make it your own by using what your given for your own rpg application of Savage Island Encounters.

Really Big Island Of Adventure!
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/10/2015 11:07:55
While there are a bunch of free maps available out on the net, Fish Wife Games sent me this right when I needed it for my DCC rpg adventure night. And I was trying to emulate a certain brand of old school text style computer games from the early 80's which dove tailed in with old school AD&D style first edition adventures. And that's where Fish Wife Games Really Big Island Of Adventure! hits its sweet spot, this series of maps could conceivable contain just about anything that your twisted imaginations can conceive of.

This is a DM's product, no if or buts about it. This Really Big Island is meant to be used when you've got less then fifteen minutes to print off a section of what you need and to drop several encounters right into the back end of your campaigns.
How you use this product is very simply, you've got the map already keyed and ready to print out. Simply write in your description around the presentation and then your ready to go. This product can fit a wide variety of genres and settings. Use it to drop in Really Big Island of Adventure as a science fiction or science fantasy adventure encounter. Add in your favorite literary book by Jules Verne and populate the adventure locations with dangerous mega birds. This location can be used to house a wide variety of things from a post apocalyptic refuge to a dangerous and forbidden lost world location right next door for a Tales Of the Gold Monkey style pulp game. This is a very useful product that comes in well under budget as you can get for use as a system neutral resource.
Personally I'm glad I had this product when I did, there's lots of useful bits and as a stand alone map this is an excellent canvas to put your own touches on.

50 Wasteland Caravan Haulers
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/21/2015 10:11:11
I've been sitting on this pdf for a week, I'm in the middle of constructing another post apocalyptic wasteland one shot. This is where fifty wasteland Caravan Haulers comes,when you need a group of NPC's on the open road. These folks are the survivors and deviants that haul they're ass across the wasted landscape under an unforgiving sky. For the price of less then a dollar you get a complete encounter kit and random list of folks to populate your world.
This product is exactly what it says on the tin, a kit to outfit your game system with gangs of roaming mercenaries, survivors, and adventurers. The list is an expansive echo of weirdness simply waiting to be dropped right into your PA campaigns. Everything is here concisely organized for maximum mayhem in your old school world. Roads and highways are the life blood of the post apocalyptic world and yet very few folks seem to exploit this fact in their games. Well no more. you get a complete break down of the driver's name, the type of vehicle they are using, and the most important goods that they are carrying. Simply perfect to drop that high way pirate right on top of your adventurers or if your PC is that high way pirate the perfect prey.
Everything here is tailor made for your post apocalyptic highway adventurers to be pulled into the world of the drivers. This list is very well put together and has very little filler and all meat to exploit for the PC's. The ideas here are simply presented and for a post apocalyptic game solidly done.

Village Snooper: The Brewery
by jonathan s. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/17/2015 21:23:41
One minute, the game is on track. The next minute, a PC (probably drunk) says "Hey, let's go to the brewery. I hear the beer is to die for there!".

What's a Dungeon Master/Game Master to do? Why, pick up the "Village Snooper: The Brewery", of course!

Kidding aside, I find this micro-setting (as well as the other Fishwife Games products) very useful for those moments when plans go awry or to seed a new adventure on the fly. :)

100 Wasteland Urbanites
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/12/2015 10:55:16
The 'Shadow Years' are that time period in post apocalyptic games when the world might sort of recover from the apocalyptic events and there's a whole dystopian vibe running through the game system. This was seen in Gamma World and to a more contemporary example Mutant Epoch. There are Mutant Future adventures and source books with this sort of feel running through them. Well Fishwife games has produced 100 Wasteland Urbanites for a ruined post apocalyptic urban city scene. Think of the movie 'The Warriors' folks, these are the minor NPC's who cross your party's tracks time and again. This random encounter list gives a whole bunch of minor options for the city encounters that come up during games.
With random tables like this its always a toss up of these encounters are going to be minor side quests or simply another stranger passing in the night. This list gives the DM all kinds of folks to throw the PC's way. The list is well done and concise for its contents and sets up the stage pretty well with a wide variety of options to throw down and for the party to encounter. Dave provides an assortment of types of NPC's and the list has a wide variety of options. This encounter table has a multitude of uses from lower level street gang encounters to three A.M. garbage & salvage raid backdrops that it can be applied to. All in all not a bad list of NPC's to add to your cityscape with little to no hassle all for the price of a burger. Another quick and solid product from the pen of Dave Woodrum. I've got use for these folks in the post apocalyptic landscape.

Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture, Set 2
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/24/2015 09:38:40
Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture, Set 2 builds on the corpse filled wasteland offerings of set one and gives even more options to fill up your wasteland encounters with interesting and notable dead. Yes it feels pretty weird to write that but that's exactly what this set does.
It gives the DM tools to fill adventure encounters with people and not simply another dead body but it also offers the DM a twist for their dollar fifty. See there is an almost movie style grind house feel to the Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture sets. Fish Wife has done a nice job setting up and giving the DM yet another way of tooling the wastelands into their own private world. Add these bodies into a location in Mutant Future or Gamma World first or second edition and suddenly the world is turned more sharply into focus with adventure hooks of a personal nature.
This is a very well done set and personally I think its worth the price of admission. Fish Wife does an excellent job of bringing the grind house horror of Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture to the fore. Grab this one and watch your PC's get put into the horror and head space of those who have not survived. The possibilities for Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture, Set 2 are limited only by your imagination. Another winner from Fish Wife Games in my book.

Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/24/2015 09:29:12
I'm a fan of post apocalyptic worlds for PC's to visit and its quite easily one of all time favorite things to do is to drop adventurers into the deep end of the wastelands. The one element that many post apocalyptic landscapes have regardless of genre have from the zombie apocalypse to a Gamma World 'years of shadow' style adventures is corpses. An often overlooked and under utilized game element. Well no more!
Dave Woodrum that one man factory of old school goodness from Fish Wife Games has produced two sets of Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture set one.
This is a sick and twisted idea, basically these are a series of two corpse filled booklets with all kinds of background on the corpses. Sweet mother why didn't I think of this??!
With the popularity of the Walking Dead television series this is a really a nice little tool kit for running a post apocalyptic urban, wasteland, or deep wasteland adventure encounter with your favorite location filled with these corpses.
This set provides a whole palette of interesting corpses to use as adventure links, fodder, and all kinds of interesting variations for your post apocalyptic wastelands. This is a really well done set and Fish Wife has done a pretty damn fine job of putting together a package of post apocalyptic goodness with Prime Pickings Of The Toxic Vulture and one of the reasons why you'll continue to see Fish Wife Products at my gaming table.

Abandoned Parking Lot: Lot A
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/22/2015 18:22:26
There are times in the wastelands where a DM wants to slow your party's roll whist adventuring through the wastelands. And that's exactly what I did the other night. During my Thundarr game I wanted the party to have a mix up with some vat grown goblins. This little gem provided me with exactly the right mix of elements I needed. A full map of the cars and trucks, a mix of different types of vehicles and the potential for greed and monster encounters. I was able to supply the monsters and the rest went done smoothly. Partially because of the diversity of this product. There seven pages of potential post apocalyptic flash point artifact rusty gold and relic conditions. Greed is always a nice motivator & Fishwife games knows how to bring a bit of mystery to the table.
According to the product's introduction this is a part of the design of it.
The parking lots of the post apocalypse is littered with an assortment
of abandoned vehicles. All of these hunks of metal are waiting for the
characters to exploit, loot, and possibly even drive off in. Though the
Game Master and the players might have a few ideas of what sort of
vehicles they would love to find, the parking lots of the urban wastes
are random with their offerings. Some cars and trucks are worthy finds,
others are semi-useless hunks of crap. Some of the interior contents of
these vehicles offer the characters much needed supplies and treasure
while some contents lack in anything desirable. Just like the parking
lots of our current times, you are never likely to know what you'll find
until you snoop about a bit.

This allows a DM to insert this into an adventure location in their wasteland campaign as a fully realized loot zone with lots of potential for mutant monster mayhem. This can be done easily,quickly, and with maximum damage potential to a party in that adventure location. The secret here in the nature of the product is how its designed.

Each edition of Abandoned Parking Lot will feature a number of random vehicles and their contents. Though the exact make/model of these vehicles is kept generic, such as “Midsize Sedan”, the author has provided a personal suggested variety of vehicle in the description, such as (Chrysler 200).
While it is likely that the parking lot would be connected to the presence of a building or buildings, these structures are left out of the provided maps (one numbered, one unnumbered). This is to allow the GM to easily drop the parking lot into most any urban wasteland area that they intend to use for an adventuring apocalyptic crawl.
The current edition of Abandoned Parking Lot offers over twenty some vehicles and the parking lot is intended to be located in a rougher neighborhood. There's quite a few drugs to be found in some of these vehicles, indicating that the nearby crime rate was a bit high before the fall of civilization.
The potential to screw with a party of adventurers is quite high in a number of places and simply sit back and watch the situations arise. The design ethos here is concise and clever a hall mark of Dave Woodrum's writing and savoy when it comes to using his product for max. adventuring and story potential in the wastes. Each car is like a mini story waiting to unfold and with mutations such as artifact empathy and telepastic relic reading and the like, the potential here to drop in exposition about the background and history of your Apocalypse is limited merely by your imagination.
This product is completely system neutral and can be applied across the board for games from modern horror to complete post apocalyptic mayhem ala Mutant Future or Mutant Epoch. But there's another side of this product, with a bit of imagination this one little parking lot could be used for a game like Chill, Call of Cthlhu or may other modern games where an abandon parking lot full of cars can mean the difference between life and death.
Lord knows it saved my life the other night and gave the players a nice excuse to have their adventurers face down giant freaking mutant insects called Chatterers. No relation to the Hellraiser character. All in all I think this one is worth your time and patience, with a bit of imagination this product can be used over and over again for years and years to come!

100 Folks Of The Old West, Set 2
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/12/2015 12:58:35
Westerns have always been some of the been the basis for science fiction, there have been a very familial little pairing with these genres. Which brings us to 100 Folks of The Old West, another Fish Wife Games product which pretty much can be adapted and plugged into the backdrop of your favorite 'New Frontier' sci fi gaming system.
You can use this as anything from random encounter chart to colony construction kit for your 'New Frontier' space colony with little to no effort at all. This is a really easy product to adapt as you see fit but wait there's plenty more that can be done.
With a quick twist of genre this product can be used to populate your post apocalyptic American South West alternative Earth. There's plenty that this can be used for in the deep wastelands of the apocalypse. Since these products are system neutral and yes there's a line of them, are easily used anyplace where the 'Old West' is the setting.
The layout here is sold and easily plugged and played in any system. Since my choice of rpg systems is old school & retroclone than this makes things much easier to deal with during adventure construction, location assignment, loot planting, and system implantation.
On the whole this is one the best incarnations of generic Old West system piece products that has come out in the last couple of months, there are a few reasons why I say this. Its cheap, its quickly implemented, the product is system neutral, its no frills and concise, and its stand alone.
These are all solid pluses for me to buy this product.

Exactly what it says on the cover. This product is a list of 100 names followed by a short description of each. The names are numbered 1-100 so you could come up with a random group very easily. The list contains a pretty varied group of individuals, not just gunfighters and outlaws, but also bartenders, land owners, and guitar players.
This will defiantly be used in my games.

by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/07/2015 22:56:59
This is a great little two page product that can be used as set dressing for your adventure locations. This little two page product presents everything that DM needs. Fish Wife Games cranks out a great list of local businesses that can be used as adventure location set dressings or perhaps as random encounter locations. This list sets up a fantastic number of businesses with everything a DM needs to populated your ruins or modern city locations right from the ground up.There's plenty of businesses to explore and for a party of adventurers to stumble upon.
The list can be also used to randomly create a long list of quick encounter locations to populate the ruins of some random wasteland locations in the post apocalyptic landscape with little to no fuss. Each entry is given their own separate set up, with a quick little note and that's it. Background, monsters,etc is all up to the DM and this creates a vast amount of room for the DM to add in the flavor that they want.Basically this is great list for those who want to add a bit more to the simple random encounters that crop up in the middle of your post apocalyptic or modern games. By using this product you can increase the number of encounters and places that they happen with a logical amount of a back story that happens to be system neutral. All in all this is a solid addition to the Fish Wife games tool box of products. Get this product and couple it with another of the post apocalyptic fish wife products and get into the wastelands in style.

100 Customer Types for Spaceport Bars
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/19/2014 18:27:19
100 Customer Types for Spaceport Bars sets out to do one thing and ends up being three products in one. This is another download from Fish Wife Games and again the quality is spot on here. Dave Woodrum provides a varied and interesting list of patrons for that wretch hive of scum and villainy in your local space port or Outer Rim space station. This list can also be used as a quick D100 encounter table as well to really spice games up. The other use for this little list is as a jump point for a group of NPC's right in the middle of an adventure. A few tosses of the dice and wham you've got everything you need to keep your PC's busy for a game dealing with some scum in the center of a bar.
This list is short, sweet, concise, and doesn't spend a ton of time dealing out details. Here the descriptions are brief and varied. The DM can add this list to his or her favorite space opera or science fictional game there's no rule hang ups to get in the way of really going to town with this list. Everything here is geared to get the PC's into interaction with minimum fuss. This is going to happen for under a dollar and this list can be dropped into a game mid stream of an adventure and no one is going to notice at all. The players can deal with the NPC's as they see fit and the same list will give a dozen results per toss to really allow the DM a rapid fire round robin of encounters. This allows an adventure to seem almost like an old school detective novel where the encounters give the skeleton of an urban interstellar Noir back drop adventure. As quick as you please this same formula can whip the PC's into the middle of a planetary tavern with steamy alien political intrigue is the order of the day. The key here is the DM['s imagination and his or her willingness to commit the time and imagination to the backgrounds of those listed here. A clever and well done product which a DM can get a hell of a lot of utility out of for the price of less then a hamburger. High recommended.

Space Stops: Spungo's Bar
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/15/2014 10:30:28
Spungo's Bar is just the place to pick up a contract or let your adventurers unwind in their favorite space opera. Fish Wife games has done an excellent job of creating the sort of vile space bar, grill , and establishment that can deal out all kinds of adventure links, NPC contacts, and encounters to get your PC's into the seedy and dangerous underside of the galactic culture and society. This is a place that passes among the loathsome and jetsam of the universe. Dave Woodrum does an excellent job of creating the sort of establishment that you'll need a shower after visiting and that's a good thing.
Spungo's is just the type of place that might appear in a cheesy late night sci fi cult movie from the 70's thru 90's on VHS or cable. That being said this is a place with plenty of room for DYI game mastering and tinkering in the background. At three dollars this is really an establishment that's a steal. Nicely written and easily thrown into any number of old school science fiction games. Going into Spungo's is going to have many PC's wanting to rethink their lives after one or two patron's use some old school mind tricks on them. That being said the product is well rounded and balanced for encounters. There's room here for expansion or for clear cutting DM customization. But there's enough meat on the bones of the product to flesh out NPC's, background of the location and more adventure location ideas as you see fit. Spungo's Bar is going to making appearances in my games coming up.
