Teenage Wasteland: The World After

Watermarked PDF

We always expected that we would die slaves to the system at a ripe old age, or at the very least as victims of the global climate crisis or the ant-vaxxer movement. What we didn't expect was for one event - just a few moments - to bring about the end of everything we knew. In just a few minutes, everyone we loved was dead. The world would never be the same. We became citizens of The World After.

Teenage Wasteland is a coming-of-age game about kids struggling to survive and come into their own in a bomb-ravaged nuclear and biological wasteland. These kids must not only struggle against each other, but also deadly mutated creatures and mindless, zombie-like Ghouls that adults became after the bombs fell. 

The game focuses on growth and development from kids toward adulthood, and all of the drama and conflict that comes with it as well as the struggle to simply survive in a world ravaged by biological weaponry and nuclear fallout.

Included are:

  • Five Unique Clique Types. Detailed within are the physically tough Jock, the socially ineffable Mean Girl, the intensely intellectual Nerd, the charismatic Popular kid and the mysterious Outsider. Each comes with unique powers, gear, and advancement rules suited to their role.
  • Tribe Creation Rules. Inside are rules to create a unique gang type called Tribe. Imagine a high school clique, only far more dangerous and with little to no accountability or supervision.
  • Streamlined Powered by the Apocalypse: Teenage Wasteland System. A super-minimized, complete system that emphasizes player decisions, non-binary successes, and is geared for adventuring and delving into the dark.

Intended for single sessions or short campaigns.
3-5 Players (including GM)
2-4 Hours per session
Low Prep. Medium Complexity.

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.
