Review Of 100 Wasteland Locations From Fishwife Games For Your Old School Post Apocalyptic Campaigns

Grab it Right Over 

Sometimes a blank spot on the map for an rpg adventure especially a apocalyptic one isn't a good thing at all. These spots have a tendancy to be exploited by players quite ruthlessly! Don't let this happen to you! We've got this handy little wonder chart from Fish Wife games that allows you fill those gaps in quickly, easily and with little fuss.
This is a nice solidly little addition to the DM's arsenal. With a few roles those white parts are filled in and you've got an evening's entertainment for less then a hamburger from the dollar menu.
Here's the description from Drivethrurpg: 
100 Wasteland Locations
A 100 list featuring an assortment of wasteland locations. Included in this mix is the name of the place, what sort of location it is, and basic information regarding what might be found there. Need to fill up that post apocalypse map with quick details? Just grab your percentile dice and consult this handy chart!
Personally this product is going up on the table for tonight's Mutant Epoch game! The PC's aren't going to be happy being thrust into the middle of some of the hilarity talked about in here. Three or four random rolls and a quick sprinkle of monsters and then we're playing here. 
Using 100 Wasteland Locations 
For Your Old School Post Apocalyptic Campaigns 

There are some great ways of using this little product. The tradition way is of course to fill in those pesky blank spots and go from there for your PC's fun. This creates a ton of potential experience spots and encounter obstacles for the party.
Another way of using this product is to use it to create your P.A. campaign from whole cloth. With a few quick rolls, your favorite rule's set, and some monsters your actually ready to create a whole world in miniature with little to no problem.
The other idea of plugging Wasteland Locations into an unconventional spot would be to use this pdf is a jump off point for a fantasy location. With Star Gate getting rebooted and other dimensional science fiction and fantasy entertainment venues getting exposure over the next year or so. Why not get the jump on all of them by getting your old school fantasy party into a few of the locations randomly that are talked about in 100 Wasteland locations.
As with any DYI post apocalyptic campaign aid, 100 Wasteland Locations uses are actually only limited by your imagination  and ideas! Personally this is a nice little product with lots of potential only limited by the number of dice and ideas that you can bring to your gaming table! 


  1. Your running Mutant Epoch?! Cool!

  2. Yeah its coming up soon on the games rotation. More post apocalyptic love coming up soon!
