Bounty Hunters of the Atomic Wastelands

By on 6 January 2014

Murdering gangs of mutants, outlaw desperados and crazed cyborg warlords; the Atomic Wastelands is home to the toughest, meanest, downright dangerous varmint the world’s ever seen.

You should know, you’re the guy who hunts them down.

Bounty Hunters of the Atomic Wastelands, the Fate based post-apocalyptic western, is now available as a free download.

Bounty Hunters of the Atomic Wastelands is a fast-paced, post-apocalyptic action-adventure roleplaying game in which the players take on the role of Bounty Hunters, banding together to hunt down bad guys for reputation and reward. It’s B-movie sci-fi meets spaghetti western, where drifters and gunslingers rub shoulders with killer robots, atomic horrors and deranged mutant supremacists.

Inside BHAW you’ll find…

  • Fast character creation rules using Backgrounds like Gunslinger, Psycher, Genius and Cyborg
  • Over 40 unique Stunts like Rad Screen, Psychic Storm and Think!
  • Time-saving GM tools like The Critter Pool
  • Rules for vehicle combat
  • A ready-to-go campaign with out-of-the-box bounties to collect

BHAW uses a much-abridged version of the award-winning FATE system, tailored to make the game easy to learn and fast to play.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
