Rad World Deluxe Edition - compatible with Shadowdark RPG



This is RAD WORLD DELUXE EDITION, A setting for Shadowdark RPG

In RAD WORLD you’ll play goblins in the far future, a place where an advanced human society has disappeared. They left behind a world of weirdness and danger. Concrete cities collapsing with mutant jungle. Salt-caked robots wandering blasted wastelands. High-energy plasma bombs primed to melt faces. Vibes are post-post apocalypse, weird science fantasy and rock-n-roll. Inspirations are Gamma World, Fallout, Caves of Qud, Ultraviolet Grasslands, and joi de vie.

Rad World Deluxe Edition comes with rules for:

➤ Creating characters
➤ Manifesting psionic powers
➤ Finding artifacts
➤ Populating the world with monsters
➤ LA Exclusion Zone Campaign Setting - tables, maps, NPC's and scenario's. Get it to the table tonight, and get rad!
➤ Tokens for VTT play

Looking to try it out first? Check out the Rad World Quickstart



You'll play Neighbours, goblins who survived the apocalypse and are the de-facto lifeform of Rad World.  You'll leave the safety of your settlement to dare the dangers of Rad World. You'll find powerful artifacts left behind by the ancients. You'll battle cybernetic dinosaurs, mutant humans, and berserk robots. You'll meet peace-loving psychics, wild raiders, and a slew of other weirdos.


If you survive, you'll find tech to upgrade your settlement and gain party benefits. Ultimately, you'll delve into the deepest secrets of Rad World. Perhaps you'll discover why the ancients disappeared?

Is Shadowdark required to use this book? As in does this book reference Shadowdark for rules and such? Thanks!

Hey wayne! Sorry for the late reply - you do need to reference Shadowdark for the classes and XP per level charts, but you can find both in the free Shadowdark quickstart.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
