Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #8: Diseases & Medical Options

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$0.99

During the final wars that destroyed the Ancients’ civilization, some of the most horrifying weapons unleashed were terrible biological diseases and plagues. Such diseases were great equalizers, their viruses and bacteria striking down unlucky victims regardless of wealth, ethnicity, or homeland.

Although the Mutant Future core book touches on optional rules regarding diseases and their effects, this issue provides Mutant Lords with a wider range of possibilities. These additions expand the Constitution Table, include healing rates and negative hit points, and provide simple but effective rules covering mutants using the Ancients’ drugs and medical equipment. Several new types of disease — both infectious and mutagenic — are also introduced, as well as detailed rules covering symptoms and a new type of saving throw. In short, everything a ML needs to make player characters’ lives that much more “interesting.”

Wisdom from the Wastelands is dedicated to providing useful information, game content, and ideas to players of modern, science fiction, and post-apocalyptic table-top and role-playing games in general and to fans of Goblinoid Games’ Mutant Future RPG in particular. The material it contains are compatible with it and any others that use the "Basic" system introduced in the most popular role-playing games of the early 1970s and are easily adaptable to many other games (especially successor systems, to include those covered by the Open Game License).

Our goal is to release a new thematic issue of this publication just about every week and to have it contain a variety of useful and earnest content that will inspire Game Masters and players alike and provide them with things that they can immediately plug into their games. We very much hope you will find this and subsequent issues of the Wisdom from the Wastelands to be useful and enjoyable!

This is one crunchy supplement, and there's something for everyone regarding all things medical: New rules. New diseases. New gadgets. And even a new mutation as the proverbial cherry on top. A great, great value for 99 cents, even if you don't use [...]

Something I feel that's overlooked by most sci-fi settings and systems is medicine and medical conditions. Well, for MF fans, this issue of Wisdom from the Wastelands helps fill in the gaps to give more texture to an element that's sorely lacking for [...]

Format

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.
