The Word in the Wastes

“Rumours you say? Whispers in the night… well, you’ve asked the right person there. See, I keep my ear to the ground and I get all the good information, see?

There are many things that lead to now. The Wastes are a complicated and intertwined thing. But, from what I can tell this is what you need to know from the rumours in the wastes.


There’s a monster on the loose. This isn’t your standard Radbadger or Ghoul. This is a thing of nightmares. A wolf with greater intelligence, strength and size than you would ever imagine. Perhaps you have heard it howling in the distance as you travel? Many have. The rumour is that it once was a man, and it is out for revenge and absolution. He was first encountered at Ricky’s Casino 4 years ago. Many saw it, but few believed.

Apparently this creature found it’s way to The Noone safe house and trading post last year and actually spoke to a group of survivors demanding help.


It would appear that 3 years ago, some bloke stole a thing that could help free the monster… but he then scarpered with it. There’s a group who were there when he stole it, and they are trying to find him, and this do-dad. Reason being, this creature is not to be messed with, and if they don’t, well… who knows what carnage might ensue?


There’s a lovely organisation out there in the Wastes, I know that sounds unlikely, but it is true. The Church of the Meek may be religious, but they are doing good. Whenever you meet one of their number, it is a good idea to stay friendly. Offer them the supplies you can afford, because they will always give you what they can in return, whether that is a safe place for the night, food when you need it most or medical attention. But there is a darker side. I would appear that the Church used to have a more militant faction within their ranks. It makes sense, the days after the war were hard on us all. This group, known as the Lightbringers, were purged from the Church when the time was right and they were no longer needed. However, they seem to have re-emerged, and their goal is not so noble. Few know much of them, but the Church of the Meek are now openly talking of the danger lurking within.

Why am I telling you this? Well, it seems that buried within the churches are artefacts. Mostly old records and things of little monetary value, kept safe from the war that raged. There are rumours, though, of a sword, a thing of value that the Lightbringers want for their own evil ends. If it’s true, it could be bad… if it isn’t, then it’s still a fun day out of the radiation of the Wastes, isn’t it?


That’s the rumours that I know… that’ll be 10 caps. I’ve also go this half roll of toilet paper and a barely used toothbrush if you are interested? Call it 15 caps in all?”

Event 21 - The Deadline

15th to 17th March 2019

Smallwood Manor


"We had a home. Somewhere safe for the first time in years without number. I never knew anything but danger, so the Manor was a place of serenity.

 Now though, now the future is uncertain. None of us know if we can keep this place safe for those of us here, or those who may come. The villagers are still uneasy, and may never accept the Unwanted. Chants of “Freaks!” still come at night. Although they haven’t approached yet. Only time will tell.

 Simmonds was a hero to us, he kept us safe and gave us this home. In his memory we will try to keep it, and continue his work. 

Poor Simmonds, to be cured only to be told he was a Monster, to be told his family are dead and he has nothing to live for, by one of the people supposedly there to save him… Christ, what a mess! We’ve all thought about it, in our darkest hours, most of us have fight left in us and keep going. But poor Simmonds, he had nothing left, literally. 

If I ever meet the guy who told him the harsh truth in his most vulnerable moment, I’ll kill him. And not in a humane way. I’m not sure I could stop myself, even if I wanted to. Simmonds didn’t deserve that, not after all he had been through, or given the fact that it wasn’t his fault. That guy needs to face punishment. I know his face, we all do… The others, for the most part, are welcome here again. They tried their best and did what they came to do… even if it wasn’t the outcome they were hoping for. 

For now, we continue. One foot in front of the other. It’s all we have, it’s what we are used to.

It's also a good time to share information, and work out what the hell is going on around you.
