POSSIBLE SPOILERS, AVOID IF UNWILLING TO SPOIL POSSIBLE STORY ELEMENTS OF THE GAME
So far, confirmation for what is and isn't considered lore is a tad sketchy, but from what I've explored in the game; I can confirm quite a few things. The Defense Intelligence Agency has been raised prior to the events of Fallout 4, though only in the DLC Point Lookout, and only as a glancing mention. Now, thanks to the exploration of one of the DIAs underground facilities, I can confirm that they use the real life DIA logo, and also not only use Agents and Special Agents, but also possess other staff which conduct research in to advanced fields.
Some images also, show the Vehicles utilised by the United States Armed Forces, I don't include the Vertibird howe…Read more >
This is for the other people on TL who got Fallout 4 and are currently playing it. What do you think?
I wasn't disappointed with the game but still felt it was a bit lacking story-wise and with the dialogue. However, the combat and crafting systems got a lot better, even than New Vegas.
My thoughts are that its an wholesale improvement on Fallout 3. What are yours?Read more >
FAIR PEOPLE OF THE WASTELANDS!
I COME TO THEE IN HOPES OF YOUR HEARING MY PRAYERS!
My idea is this:
"'The Paranoia Experiment"
Based off the idea of 'The Seattle Freeze', in which a Seattle Newspaper claimed that people from Seattle are naturally against outsiders and prefer certain cliques outside of openly conversating with others.
The Vault Experiment began roughly three days into the lock down, where the Vault Overseer reported that the Vault had overcounted and that an additional resident had entered, it was also hinted that the extra citizen was actually a Chinese Spy.
At first, only asian persuaded people were brought to the Vault Security and overseer but were all later released with no explanation why. This is because the entir…Read more >
I am totally new to this wiki thing but my friends say it's a blast and while looking through the Fallout Wiki (LOVE FALLOUT!) I saw a link here! I was so surprised to see such a big wiki and decided to join IMMEDIATELY.
Now, two places that I have absolutely wanted to see in the Fallout World is the Midwest, which according to Fallout is...
"the former north-central states of the United States, specifically Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin (the Plains Commonwealth and Midwest Commonwealth). Although these states are generally considered to constitute the region, opinions on the exact borders of the Midwest vary. 'In California, it is said that t…Read more >

Just giving everyone a heads up, the template for the music player is currently not working. If you make any kind of edit to a page right now with the player already embedded it will cause it to no longer function. So please keep that in mind before you do any minor editing on the wiki. Ask yourself if this edit can wait until the situation gets resolved.
There actually seems to be a lot of other wierd bugs occuring with the wikia code, so we'll need to have patience while this gets sorted.
UPDATE In the meantime, here is a workaround that should work for any affected pages. Its taken from our friends at the 40k wiki.

To all those interested RPers of this site who are looking for a new RP I have an offer for you, This new RP; The Worn Trail takes place in the Texas-Tamaulipas region but naturally can extend further, I'd say the limit of the RP's scope would be between Austin and Ciudad Victoria but I digress. The RP follows the story of a second Brahmin Rancher-Cattlemen War between the Brahmin Ranchers of Falfurrias and the Longhorn ranchers of Tamaulipas' Cattle Country. The Falfurrias' Cattlemen Assocation has had enough of the intrusions by the Mexican cattlemen into their market, taking business away from them as the Mexican Cattle Barons find other ways to move their herds of Longhorns into the Corpse Coast, Falfurrias' primary market for their Br…Read more >

Greetings my Fellow Editors!
The primary purpose of this blog post is to generate some interest in the Four State Commonwealth state: New Mexico ("The Land of Enchantment"). Not a lot seems to be written about this beautiful state, though it bountiful in all that makes the Fallout universe special. Heck, the world was ushered into the nuclear era in the confines of this area. Now I know a few articles have been written concerning the states: settlements, characters, etc. Yet there are still be major elements that could be explored.
Keep in mind: this post is strictly for brainstorming. Nothing is being created here, as things need to be cross-checked with other articles as well as additionally researched.

Hey everyone, so as I said this is the new contest I was intending to put up today, a remake of the contest from February. Anyway, The challenge is simple; the Mexican State of Chihuahua has been stripped of its content after the "Little Wipe" and rather than leave it blank we're going to use it for this contest, you are to write a Character, Location, Group or Story centered in the state of Chihuahua. Those pages that are submitted will be voted upon by the userbase and the winner will be the lucky owner of three fine examples of pre-war death machines, Three Howitzers to be used at their discretion in an article of their choosing. Good writing, you have until 7/23/15.

Hey Guys so now that our community has grown now with the announcement of Fallout 4 and the onset of the Summer, I'd like to bring back some of the community events that we ran last summer. For those that weren't around OP ran two contests for users to make pages in under developed regions of the fanon and were given rewards ranging from Power Armor and a vertibird. Now I'm not advocating that we re-use those prizes but I'd like to see those contests return. However contest aren't the only form of community projects we could undertake, and if you have any suggestions for one please list them in the comments below. Also, if you have an idea for a contest we could run, or a possible prize for said contests list them as well. I'd like to get …Read more >

For all of those who eagerly await this weekend's upcoming E3 convention, I have some fine news from the folks over on the Vault (No not Ausir's wiki the Fallout canon wiki) they will be livestreaming the Bethesda conference, the stream will be linked on the wiki itself. However I don't know if the stream will be on Twitch or some other service, but I'll get back to you on that. Though on a sidenote I have no idea how the conference will be recorded, it'll probably be nothing more than a camera on a tri-pod if they're doing it themselves or they'll piggyback on the actual footage coming from the conference. Either way I'm excited.

Tranquility Lane has four inactive bureaucrats: Ausir (who is banned from all of Wikia), Re4leonscottkennedy, and ZombieFreak1898 who haven't been on since 2009 and Run4urLife! who hasn't been on since 2012. I would like to have their status removed as we have no need for absentee bureaucrats. However Wikia requires that this be a popular sentiment. Please vote and leave a comment with your thoughts.Read more >
I have to say; seeing the trailer was amazing, but at the same time; it feels quite a bit... well, odd; Apparently now; Helicopters are still in use, if only in small use in Pre-War America, despite the claim of Fallout Tactics that there is little fuel left, and that they are expensive wastes of fuel. If you study the sight of the Helicopter; it appears to be a VTOL, so it may be a Vertibird Prototype. I'm unsure how to feel about the changes to the aesthetic also, it looks to be that the Mr Handy and Protectron haven't changed, but the Vault suit seems to have returned to the more Fallout 1 and 2 design.
I'm unsure how to feel about it also for its inclusion of the airship that flies over what I assume is Boston, I could be wrong. I'm uns…Read more >

My Articles may be lacking in my usual style of in-game scene setting; since my Fallout 3 GECK didn't take a file very nicely and died, taking my Fallout 3 with it. I'll have to make steps from the bottom to the top again. So thats gonna be fun. I'll have to re-install my Fallout 3 game from the bottom up, and I'm recluctant to fiddle with the less than operable NV GECK that I've used, and whilst I could buy a brand new PC to make it run smoother, I'm not Richard Branson, so thats not the best plan.
I'll still work on articles, but pictures will be lacking for a time, though hopefully not for too long. I should be back up and running before long, so; just wanted to let everyone know if they notice me drop in edits.

After some discussion with OP on what the topic should be we decided, it was decided that the contest shall be: To make a town located in Canada that is facing some kind of crisis. It doesn't matter what the crisis is whether it be raiders, disease, drought, starvation, whatever. And to the winner, they shall win a supreme example of a Pre-war war machine, a Howitzer to be used in at your discretion in an article of your choosing.

Hey guys, thought I would just make a blog on this on account that on the various other wikis I'm a part of this topic comes up quite a bit. Feel free to post your own political views in the comments, its simply something to help create discussion and for me to figure out who to send to the camps.
- Fiscal: Conservative, Laissez Faire is my policy
- Economic: Capitalism is usually the best way to go, but some restrictions are needed.
- Military: Far-Right, Strong national defense and so on.
- Social: Libertarian, I have no issue with Abortion and Gay Rights. My reason? If you truly believe in the value of small government, then why would the government need to intrude into the personal lives of its citizens.
- National Views: Patriot
Hey, I am the P.B.G for those who have not met me and well I would like to create this blog page for some proposed 'key events' to the Fallout world. Now while some of these are human centric e.g. wars, trade, alliances, meetings etc. I was more going for some natural disasters, or events that happen in real life like Hurricane's, freak weather changes, famines, or tornadoes.
As such I have created a small number of ideas for events that could effect multiple regions of the Fallout world, that could effect multiple groups, giving said people in those areas a chance to change status quo or see how different groups of communities may respond to it.
I will also note if the greater community does not want such events to take place

Now, this is completely unrelated to fanon in every way possible, but I'd like to know everyone's opinion about the idea of having another top-down, or thereabouts, Fallout game, like the games from the days of Interplay, when Interplay was on a roll.
I've been going on a lot of over-head/side-on RPGs/RTSs, and one thing I've noticed is how they have a certain, classical taste to them. Take for example, Omerta: City of Gangsters. It's like a less-developed Fallout: Tactics-esque kind of game, major differences being the lack of weapons/movement/inclusions of other systems, but the combat itself was a turn-based system that reminded me, albeit slightly, of the old top-down Fallout titles, and reminded me of Black-Isle's canned title, Van Bur…Read more >
First things first, NEW CONTEST. The second issue I'd like to address is seeing how many people here are on reddit and would be interested in a TL subreddit.
I am running a contest in a shameless plug to gin up votes for a model British Parliment that I am participating in. To enter this contest all you have to do is vote UKIP in this parliamentary by-election. If you have a reddit account use, this link to vote. After you have voted comment below telling me that you voted. At the end of the election a drawing will be conducted and everyone that votes UKIP is entered. The winner will receive a prize on TL.

The Tyranny of OP
I'm happy to see that this place is returning to a 2009/2010 level of activity, even if it's at the hands of a smaller user base. Some of you have no doubt wondered why I'm a bit uptight about the content of the fanon, and the answer is simple: I'm enforcing the mandate that I was given when I was appointed administrator. A while back, I felt that the userbase had changed and that is was appropriate to offer them a chance to change the tone or style of the fanon, to determine what is and isn't acceptable. They opted to let things continue as is. Now that I personally feel that the userbase has changed once again, I'd like to give the new batch of users a chance to give their input: what, if anything, should be changed arou…Read more >

Hello everyone CaptainCain bringing you an interesting bit of Fallout news and no its not another Fallout 4 let down. A game in development by independent developers has gone into production.

The smell of the ancient and freshly dead perfumed the air. Bluegrass ash drifted on the wind from the north-east. Hud kept his back pressed firmly on the rusted hulk of a Transverse Stormbird, doing his best to ignore the rank stench that came from the deceased Ned, who had voided his bowels an hour ago. Hud peeked over the hood of the wreck, spying a skirmish between Cumberlanders and Commies. He didn't know what the Commies were doing this far west, but he knew if either side of that fight should find him, he was a dead man.

Lucy paced back and forth in the small chamber, gesticulating wildly. Every time she came upon Wiggum who was rocking himself nervously in the fetal position she would make a neat half-circle around him and continue. The intruder was talking to Gideon; he was wearing a robe like the other Children she had seen, but she had noticed the blue-and-yellow sleeve of a Vault jumpsuit poking out underneath the robe's sleeve. Eventually the intruder slinked out of the room. Gideon approached Lucy and put a hand on her shoulder, stopping her mid-step. She glared in his direction and tried to zero in on his features, cutting through the fog in her mind until he came into focus. The first t…

Once upon a time Faboo seemed poised to write a bunch of stuff about Ireland. Unfortunately he's gone and now Ireland has its provinces represented without a whole lot to show for it.

Keep in mind that as a country in Europe, it was likely entangled in the Resource Wars in some fashion. You have until 07/30/14 to complete your entry. The winner will be decided by poll, with the victor earning the privilege of incorporating 5 suits of T-45d Power Armor into their work, in whatever combination (want to write a character who owns one, and a group who has the other 4? Be my guest.) they care for. Get to it!

Hello everyone, I saw this being conducted on another website that I was on the other day. Basically what it is the players all pick a nation, state or group from the Fallout universe, they agree on the borders and where they can be placed and the players basically train military units, for example: The NCR trains one infantry battalion and one cavalry battalion and thats all they get for that turn along with an attack move. They play for a set amount of time and end whenever one side is the clear victor. Naturally the amount of units that can be trained are based around the population of said nation state, example: NCR has around 700,000 people according to Nukapedia and the Vault thus the number of units they can train would be limited b…Read more >

So, I had this idea and OP said I should poll it to the masses to see if we should actually set up some kind of guidelines for it.
The concept is essentially allowing writers to create their own unique character specific perks for characters they write. Now we can all see where this can go awry, with people giving characters perks that allow immunity to the elements or certain types of damage etc.. But there's also potential to add some different flavors to characters. Two existing examples are on the characters Hoodlum and Eric Haganey, who have the perks Shotgun Diplomacy and Old World Values respectively. I think that, with the proper guidelines, this could be a fun addition to the character creation process.

I have a question about my England (Since I- and T42, apparently) are the only ones on it.

Since, Europe is very uncivilized during the war, I have ideas for their enemies, mostly the The Free Collars and what not, but also Ireland Survivors who dispise the british, maybe some scots. ANd have it be like the NCR, where it is developed enough to have some form of unity. But is also under immense war with the Freedom Collaboration, who are my main bad guys.Read more >
Okay I've got a few questions, first of all is that, if aliens are considered NCF then what do we do in refereance to the motherhips zeta DLC? Second, do ghouls need to eat, sleep, or drink?

Finally, could it be possible that there arose another group with gear simmilar to the Brotherhood? All I'm saying is that the Brotherhood started out as just army rangers or something like that and therefore couldent any group with millitary connections have the same kind of gear?
