Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland: Primer

Watermarked PDF


Nuclear fire from World War 3 cleansed the surface of the Earth in 1969 but life in this alternate Hypercorps 2099 timeline persists—now, nearly a century and a half later, survivors are exiting their underground shelters to comb the ruins of civilization and fight for a new world. Are you set on staking a claim and defending what’s yours, will you champion justice and battle for what is right, or become one of the mad warlords that rules over the Wasteland?

Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland aims to deliver a means to do all of those things as a campaign source book for Fifth Edition, helping GMs generate their own personal Wastelands with gameplay that reinforces exploration of a procedurally generated world where survival is as important as anything else!

This is a promotional PDF for the Hypercorps 2099: Wasteland Kickstarter, funding from Tuesday November 29th to Sunday December 18th! Please check out the project page on Kickstarter and consider making a pledge.

What you’ll find in the Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland: Primer:

  • Radraider Primal Path - An archetype for barbarians that do not fear radiation but wield it instead, using their rage to turn atomic energy on their foes!

  • Wasteland Character Backgrounds - Play as an alien abductee from the past, a lucky escapee from an underground shelter, or a captain from an underground shelter that’s decided the Wasteland offers a brighter future.

  • Wasteland Gear - In order to survive the irradiated landscape you’ll want a geiger counter, some iodine pills, and if you can afford it, a lead-lined backpack to keep your food from becoming poisonous.

  • Wasteland Skills - You can’t say “mad science” without “science” and you can’t adventure in the Wasteland without a nod to Technology!

  • Radiation and Irradiated - Radiation is a vital element of Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland and the rules for atomic energy are included with a new attribute for once you’ve gathered up too much of the stuff in your cells.

  • Wasteland Monsters - Brain slugs to take over your mind with the slug-brained template, an irradiated bear (via another template!) because those are just too tough to die out, the dreaded purple people eater, and zombie-like walkers (including short rules for the smart walker player race)!

Hypercorps 2099 (5E) is not required for exploring the Wasteland and this is a standalone supplement.

    Original electronic
    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.
