Learn About The New Factions in Upcoming Fallout Tabletop RPG Campaign Book

The highly-anticipated new Fallout tabletop RPG campaign book, Winter of Atom, will feature new factions that players can ally with or battle against. The new factions have been developed by Chelsea ‘Dot’ Steverson, and they add a unique and quirky feel to the game, reminiscent of Fallout 1 and 2.

One of the new factions is a massive moving casino called Mirage, which is pulled by a herd of Brahmin. The casino travels through the frozen Commonwealth, offering its visitors and residents a luxurious experience with gambling tables and a bar. However, the tensions around the harsh winter and strange happenings with the Children of Atom add an eerie atmosphere to the faction. The faction has also been plagued by people going missing, making it a perfect location for players to investigate and uncover the truth.

Another faction is the Freeques, a group of ghouls who have taken up residence in a decrepit circus tent called Big Top. They provide shelter for ghouls and synths under their performance space, but they are struggling to survive due to the onset of atomic winter. Their situation has forced them to seek supplies from the Children of Atom, and a protectron named D3N-Z3L claims that a military bunker they guarded contains information about a giant underground beast.

The Beats, a pacifist community of beatniks, live in Beatsville, a commune located inside a huge scrapheap. The Beats aim to bring enlightenment to the people of the Commonwealth through new art, music, and literature, but they are ill-equipped to survive the harsh winter. Their handmade creations used to provide a source of caps and supplies, but the winter has halted their efforts, and they may soon run out of manuscripts to burn.

Finally, the Sisters of the Forge are a small female group of blacksmiths and mechanics who operate Mechminster Abbey, a tattered church that is no longer used for religious purposes. The Sisters strongly oppose the Last Son of Atom and dedicate themselves to providing support to those fighting against his dangerous doctrine. However, the extreme winter conditions have left them vulnerable, and they may need to seek outside help to survive.

Winter of Atom offers a plethora of new factions and communities to discover, making it a perfect addition to any Fallout tabletop RPG campaign. Players can choose to ally with or fight against these new factions, adding a unique twist to their adventures in the Commonwealth Wasteland.
