Fifth Edition Fallout

This wiki compiles rules and mechanics previously posted on the Spilled Ale Studios blog, as well as new content updates and rules fixes that have been subsequently introduced to the Fifth Edition Fallout sourcebook.

Fifth Edition Fallout is not a complete game, and requires the Fifth Edition Player’s Handbook or Basic Rules.

If you use the rules presented here to run a Fallout game or adapt them to another setting, it would make my day to hear about it! Please consider tweeting @spilledale to let me know what you’re doing with it.

Fallout is the sole intellectual property of Bethesda Softworks. This is purely a fan work.

Text and game mechanics presented in this wiki are not Open Game Content and should not be reproduced or repackaged in any way.

Update Status

This wiki is a work in progress. At present, all current rules and character creation guidelinesare included, as is every currently available creature statblock. In addition, new statblocks are being added here first and will eventually be compiled into future releases of the PDF. Therefore, it is presently the most up-to-date source for Fifth Edition Fallout.

Incomplete Sections

When navigating the bestiary, you'll notice some of the creature sections in the navigation bar and index page have an asterisk (*) next to the title. This indicates that all the statblocks that presently exist for the section are present (but doesn't preclude the possibility of more being added in future). However, the section is otherwise lacking some feature to make it complete, such as Knowledge check tables.

What You Won’t Find

Some setting lore is included to provide necessary context to things such as character background options and various types of creature encountered in the wastes. Beyond that, however, Fifth Edition Fallout doesn’t attempt to describe the world of Fallout but instead focuses on the rules you need to play in that world. When planning adventures, the Fallout wikia is a recommended source for all currently available information about the setting.

PDF Sourcebook and Game Resources

Please visit the hub on my blog to download the most recent version of the Fifth Edition Fallout rules as a bookmarked PDF as well as other game resources such as counter packs, a character sheet, and the introductory adventure A Date with the Queen.

Supplementary Content?

I've published a number of post-apocalyptic sourcebooks on DriveThruRPG, the contents of which are fully compatible with Fifth Edition Fallout! They're 100% optional, but at the same time, they're 100% likely to enrich your game and/or save you some work.
