HOT. MEAN. RADIOACTIVE.
August 20, 2087
Nothing could be worse than this god-forsaken, radioactive desert.
More Sniperdroids! All tracking me with them death glares. And them Uzis. They're weird trigger-twitchin' folks. I suspect it's them poisoning the water.
Or maybe it's those Leather Thugs. Heck, I don't know anymore. I heard they have a bunch of civilians cut off east of Ranger Center, which is where I'm headed. Hope not. Yhey want me dead. Like every other mutant this side of Vegas.
The worst part is, I'm getting to be as bad as they are. You wouldn't believe some of the ways I've learned to kill. I hang out in sewers, and my best friend is a MAC 17 submachine gun.
Gramps talked about life before the nuclear war. All I know is I don't want others living this way. Gotta rebuild this desert right. Gotta make it so you can sleep with your eyes closed.
WASTELAND. A new role-playing game from the creators of the Bard's Tale’ series.
