Wasteland Wanderers: Fifth Edition Classes For Post-Apocalyptic Worlds

Watermarked PDF

This content is compatible with the Fifth Edition of the world's best known d20-based fantasy roleplaying game. 

Bring a touch of class to a savage world. 

Wasteland Wanderers presents six all-new and modified classes designed to suit Post-Apocalyptic campaign worlds and pre-published settings. You could also find homes for these classes and their archetypes in modern, futuristic, or even fantasy settings with minimal conversion effort. 

Wasteland Wanderers contains 44 pages of classes and archetypes including:

  • The Savage, a class based on the SRD's Barbarian with post-apocalyptic appropriate archetypes including the Implacable Hunter, the Mad Gunner, and the Survivor.
  • The Scientist, a new class which focuses on intellect and expertise. Archetypes include the Chem Cook, the Engineer, and the Programmer. 
  • The Scoundrel, a class based on the SRD's Rogue with post-apocalyptic appropriate archetypes including the Con Artist, the Hitman, and a nonmagical variant of the Thief. 
  • The Scout, a new class that fills a niche similar to the SRD's Ranger. These wilderness experts rely on their Instinct to enhance their fortunes, and wield a signature weapon known as their Old Reliable. Archetypes include the Beast Hunter, the Bounty Hunter, and the Guerilla.
  • The Shepherd, a new class that fills a niche similar to the SRD's Bard. They are political leaders, officers, and other inspiring figures. They use their Command to deal psychic damage, restore hit points, and charm or frighten foes. With their Comrades' Bond, nearby allies who are adjacent to each other can choose to suffer damage on each other's behalf. Archetypes include the Chronicler, the Commander, the Regent, and the Tyrant.
  • The Soldier, a class based on the SRD's Fighter with post-apocalyptic appropriate archetypes including the Brawler, the Pit Fighter, and the Sharpshooter.

one of my players figured out how to do a minimum seven damage as an unarmed scientist at level one. how much playtesting and balancing was done? is there something wrong going on here?

Hi John,

Apologies for the late response, there seems to have been an issue with DriveThru's notification system as I never received notice of this discussion.

The classes are playtested to the limited extent possible as an indie publisher, but are actively updated based on feedback. Since they are PDFs, not print, there is therefore potential for errata to be applied and for customers to simply overwrite their old version.

However, I doubt any errata is needed in this case: there should be no possible way for your player to have achieved that.

I can't see a way the scientist's unarmed attack could be any higher than 1, as normal. A 1st level scientist gets only two features: a signature device (nothing to do with unarmed strikes), and a tech bonus to damage rolls using their gadgets (which is only +2 and can't be applied to unarmed strikes anyway).

Small Typo found, in the Scientist class under the Solutions feature. "You must take a short rest before you can Rage again."

Love the product, huge fan of your Fallout 5E conversion so I had to buy this, one thing is that it looks like Page 8 should be before Page 6

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.
