I'd buy it.

I believe there was one in development that was killed when interplay sold off the majority of the Fallout rights - there are still coverscans and whatnot floating around.

Actually I just thought, Fallout ran on the GURPS system didn't it?
I remember because it was quite a big deal at the time.
So when you think about it, theres already a Fallout RPG, all we're missing is the sourcebook :D

They originally wanted to use GURPS, but something happened with that. Not sure what, and too tired to research it right now.

It uses it's own system, but is VERY RPG based, so it wouldn't be any real stretch to make it a Pencil and Paper RPG.

There *WAS* a fan-made one that got C&Ded recently, IIRC.

And, ya, I'd buy it. And Demo it as well! I loves me my Retro-Post Apocolyptic Games! :D

Aha you're right it's a cut down 'not GURPS' version of gurps :D
The stat bar was what confused me lol.

There was an official pen & paper release as well - came on CD's in PDF format with marked copes of Fallout Tactics back in the day.

Also, here the info on the cancelled game, which used the d20 ogl:

I'm pretty sure Interplay was going to be Gurps based.

Bethesda's is probably based on the Oblivion system. The Elder Scrolls series has always used a hybrid skills/levels system that to my knowledge has never been really duplicated in Pen and Paper.

Yes, I remember that it was supposed to run on GURPS because the main designer of FALLOUT was running it as a GURPS pen and paper RPG. For some reason the negotiations with SJG hit the wall and Intreplay had to create their own engine. I think it is some sort of bastard son of GURPS, AD&D and BRP. It uses percentile system with AC and apparently GURPS like stats and advantages. It might even use levels but I'm not sure if I remember that correctly.

I second this... It would be even better if they used the RuneQuest OGL for this ;)
