The science fiction equivalent of magical potions and elixirs, drugs and medications are similarly treasured. Because of widespread use by the Ancients, chemical compounds of all sorts can be found almost anywhere: in ruined bases, villains' caches, or within the junk hoarded by mutant monsters. These potent pharmaceuticals can bring a character back from the brink of death, or provide enough of an edge to keep him from getting there. This issue describes different (and yet familiar) types of drugs commonly found in the post-apocalyptic environment, includes a few optional rules, and has a handy chart for the game master who would like to randomly determine a drug's form.

Wisdom from the Wastelands is dedicated to providing useful information, game content, and ideas to players of modern, science fiction, and post-apocalyptic table-top and role-playing games in general and to fans of Goblinoid Games’' Mutant Future RPG in particular. The material it contains are compatible with it and any others that use the "Basic" system introduced in the most popular role-playing games of the early 1970s and are easily adaptable to many other games (especially successor systems, to include those covered by the Open Game License).

Our goal is for each thematic issue of this publication to contain a variety of useful and earnest content that will inspire Game Masters and players alike and provide them with things that they can immediately plug into their games. We very much hope you will find this and subsequent issues of the Wisdom from the Wastelands to be useful and enjoyable!
