A Desolate Waste: Post Apocalyptic Skirmish: Compatible with Gruntz 15mm

Watermarked PDF

The Desolate Waste Campaign is a post-apocalyptic, science-fiction campaign designed to be used with a slightly modified version of Gruntz where we make extensive use of the specialists, commanders, and monster rules to allow for a more nuanced skirmish style game. A basic person or Crew Member will use the gruntz specialist template with scout level damage capacity. Characters and Crew Leaders will use the Commander templates and abilities. Large monsters like dragons, large demons and inter-dimensional monstrosities will use the monster rules.
The first thing you will need to do is create a Crew Leader and 2-5 Crew Members. You will need to generate their background, their class, goals and motivations and buy any special talents or abilities and their starting gear and weapons. You will also need to choose your groups initial allegiance to one of the many Power Groups.
Your Crew will need to acquire food, water, clothing or armor, weapons, ammo and eventually transport and energy or fuel. Life in the Desolate Waste is a constant struggle for survival.


The Desolate Waste Campaign is a set of rules for playing skirmish games in an original post-apocalyptic setting using the Gruntz 15mm ruleset. It provides 25 linked scenarios and a sample crew and crew leader as wella s a complete description of the Town of Crossroads. The Scenarios tell the story of Earl Moore and his road crew and their overthrow of the wicked Viola Chance while defending from an invasion from Precinct 8.

The campaign setting also provides complete rules for survivng in the Waste, meeting contacts, performing jobs and complete descriptions and backgrounds of the 11 power groups in the Waste. There are also tables for random encounters in the Waste as well as generating salvage and job rewards.

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.
