The Wasteland Companion

Watermarked PDF

The Wasteland Companion is an expansion for This Is Not a Test, a 28mm wargame set in a post-apocalyptic United States where warbands fight for survival, power, and greed.

This expansion rulebook features:

New Background Material – Further explore the Tri-State Wasteland. Learn all about the locations, history, and factions that call the Tri-State Wasteland home.

New Skills, Mutations, and Special Rules – Two new skills for each skillset, 30+ new mutations, and even random skill tables for that old school feel! There is also a new way to buy off negative traits like Soft-belly and Ragtag.

New Warbands – Two new warbands have arrived; the Settlers and the Renegade Reclaimers. The Settlers are far from the most deadly combatants, but they have numbers and access to healthcare, technical expertise, and the enigmatic Mysterious Stranger. The Renegade Reclaimers are all about the recovery of old world relics no matter the cost. Though always out-numbered, they make up for this buy having more access to more power armor than any other warband.

Warband Variants – The Totem Tribals, a variant of the tribal warband, revere certain wasteland creatures. Players with a tribal totem can take wasteland creatures such as wastewolves or a juvenile Landsnapper into battle and gain access to special skills. Be careful though, this comes at the cost of rejecting technology even more than their tribal kin.

New Specialists – From the explosive Fire Bug for the Raiders to the Peacekeeper Blood Hound, who never lets a bounty go unclaimed, each warband gains new specialist options.

New Wasteland Deck – A whole new deck for your adventuring pleasure. Match wits with the rambling trader, raid a giant ant hill, duel with tribals, and even put on a play worthy of Shakespeare. 

Warband Ranks – Gain new abilities that gives the warband unique skills and options.  Want to add a rule to a model that it could not access before? Want your leader to have a cool mutant pet? Now you can. There are even options for adding more elite models to your warband and increasing the total amount of relics your warband can carry.

Buying Off Penalties – Tired of your models stuck being poor or cowardly?  Now you can buy off general abilities like Softbelly or Rag-Tag instead of taking advancements.

Healing Your Warband – Injuries got you down?  Now you can take your warband to the local saw bones for a bit of a tender care.  Of course, this is not cheap and there’s a chance they could always make things worse.

Two New ScenariosJust ‘Cause uses random mission requirements to allow for quick campaign or club play; while Ashes to Ashes challenges your warband to keep together while battling both the elements and your opponent.

All this and more can be found inside!

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.
