The end of the world came for reasons both completely predictable and entirely unavoidable.

Too many rats. Not enough cheese.

In the decade-winters after the great war, humanity all but vanished. Now the survivors cower in isolated Bubble Cities. Only the bravest dare to travel through a collapsing landscape boiling with radiation and mutants. Factions fight over the burnt scraps of a better world, Old World Relics are worth more than gold, and somewhere out there your Quest awaits, but only if you are strong enough to find it on the WasteCrawl.

Designed for the One-Page RPG Jam 2022, WasteCrawl takes a deck of cards and a couple of dice and makes a world of post-apocalyptic nightmares.  It's easy to learn, fun to set up, and fast to play, but deep and wide like a traditional RPG. Designed for 1-8 players (yes, you can play solo), games take 30 minutes to 2+ hours, depending on your fortunes and persistence.

Easy to learn, fun to master. You can even use WasteCrawl to generate a nuclear fallout setting for other RPG games. If you like what you see here, check out QuestCrawl, the rules-lite no-prep fantasy-adventure hex-crawl-simulator.

The only item in the download is the character sheet. Shouldn't there be the rules in pdf too?

Well, that's embarrassing. I've added the v1.1 version. I guess that upload had failed before. Try again, and let me know if you have any issues.

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.
