Talk page was getting long in the tooth.-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 06:25, June 13, 2014 (UTC)

I updated the request at the top of the page. When you're making titles, please don't make them vague. I frequently have to navigate several conversations here. Titling your inquiry something like "Question" or "Request" is not helpful. Thanks for reading!-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 13:43, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

I'm having some modem issues, so I won't be on regularly until those are resolved.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 15:56, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Defenders Pt. 2

So seriously what do you think can I make the faction? CaptainCain (talk) 10:23, June 13, 2014 (UTC)

No. As it is I'm getting worried by the pictures being added to the Devil's Brigade, I'm going to have to read the new additions.-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 14:11, June 13, 2014 (UTC)
Uhhh What are you worried about copyright or what? CaptainCain (talk) 15:26, June 13, 2014 (UTC)
One last thing I'm going to be on a trip over the weekend so I'm not going to be able to edit the Devil's Brigade should you find issues. My apologies in advance. CaptainCain (talk) 15:38, June 13, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for missing the rules page

Didn't realise that we couldn't create Vaults without approval, sorry if its out of place, but I believe the dates are in tune and events aren't blown out of proportion and such, and Kirkman is a idea for a storyline I've thought up, so sorry if its out of place.CarthAntilles (talk) 18:05, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

I hope it doesn't seem terribly arbitrary, there were in fact well considered reasons for these rules that I'd be happy to discuss with you some time. I'll review Vault 14 when I have the time.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 19:26, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Buster's Bombadiers

Not much to this group except that they're a group of crazy Ex-Air Force Ghouls who have a working B-52 Stratofortress, they fly over NYC and basically bomb the shit out of anyone (mostly raiders) caught out in the open. They make their home at Mitchel Air Force Base and there they take in other ghouls and mutants and propmtly train to fight the communist menace (really just smoothskins). Their leader is basically a vengeful, genocidal nutjob angry at non-mutants for being bigoyed towards his kind, how they're viewed as zombie freaks, shot on sight in some places and basically viewed as second-class citizens if that.

However he doesn't know about the FRL who has anti-discrimantion laws, and other places that accept ghouls. If you don't like the idea of a B-52 I can switch that out with a Zeppelin they peiced together or a single vertibird they use for bombing runs. Also can I make that small Enclave faction I've asked about? The Reclamation I mean, they're a group of survivors from the Capital Wasteland who linked up with a small cell that was located in NYC. They basically fight like the Vietcong, ambushing, setting up IEDs, laying minefields, they still have their power armour and advanced weaponry they're just very few in number (125) and thus are forced to use guerilla tactics. They're also half the reason why Lyon's Brotherhood is down in NYC they are hunting down the last of the Enclave. So waddya think? CaptainCain (talk) 10:42, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

No to the power armored groups. Did you know power armor was only used domestically for the first time a few months prior to the nukes being dropped? Did you know that in Fallout, the Brotherhood of Steel didn't even have enough Power Armor to outfit all their guys, hence the existence of Brotherhood armor? There's not warehouses full of power armor for every hundred guys in this and that area. No Lyons brotherhood, no Enclave, etc. Okay to the zombie airmen, that sounds cool.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 15:24, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
Wait so your cool with the B-52? CaptainCain (talk) 18:57, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
In this instance, yes. This is not blanket permission to suddenly inundate the wasteland with B-52s.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 18:26, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Signature

Is there a way to sign my signature so it says something besides my username but still leads to my userpage? Vivaporius has one i think Walrus king (talk) 23:14, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

The custom signature box is in your preferences.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 18:26, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

New Zealand

I was thinking... if the Great War happened, New Zealand would have been pretty well off (Not accounting fallout, nuclear winter, etc.) So I'm thinking of making an article basis off the country -similar to this- and how it is after the war. I had the idea of making it Chinese owned (as it basically is now), so the capital would have been nuked, leaving no true government. Would this be acceptable? -- # Nero 

Being "Chinese owned" would be reason enough for it to not be well off, not that any place in the Fallout setting should be considered well off. If you care to develop it accordingly, sure. If your ideas all require the premise of well off, than you shouldn't do it.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 19:50, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

It was just an idea so New Zealand wasn't a perfectly normal, non barren utopia of futuristic technology and thriving community. With the introduce of a Chinese government, it would turn into a Communist state some time close to the Great War. Maybe 10 to 15 years before launch. I will work on some ideas, touch up on some canon, then do the article later on. -- # Nero 

Enclave congressman/base/garage

I'll put 'em like this, so its easier to answer;

  1. Would I be allowed to make a Enclave congressman? not like him being a vital character, or some leader of the Enclave, but rather a small time officer in the Enclave, co-ordinating the remains of the Enclave after the Oil Rig's destruction
  2. Could I make a article on a Enclave base, one that Does get destroyed, maybe like a US naval ship thats still in use by the Enclave, or another Oil Rig, your call on whats allowed
  3. Could I make a location article about a old Pre-War factory being re-activated, like a food processing plant for junk foods and such?
  4. Can I make a article about a Garage which repairs Pre-War cars and such?

Cheers.CarthAntilles (talk) 13:19, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

In order: No. Elaborate please. Yes. Elaborate please.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 15:15, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
For number two, I'm kind of thinking basically like Kirkman, history of the base before the war, and the use of it after, and for number four, it'll basically be a automobile shop, with Pre-war tech and knowledge of how to repair old Pre-War Vehicles, and would there be any Enclave character that I could make? not a high ranking officail, but somone from the Enclave government?CarthAntilles (talk) 19:09, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
Yes to the garage. Enclave is played out, don't do it.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 19:50, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
       Am I still able to talk about the Enclave in the past tense, Talk about dead officials, Battles, Bases, Etc?

NCR Military

Hey OT.

So as you may know I'm big on aircraft and military.

For the record I'm done creating any more pages that are within the confines of NCR armed forces (Air, Navy, Army). They were put in place with heavy background and foreground emphasis to provide the other guys with te ability to fall back on links and spin off all kinds of possibilites, not to mention the characters that have referenced these pages of mine.

I don't always check messages, normally I get BS Spam from Halo Nation and always assume that's what it is. But now I have got the message - no more NCR Military pages. (Finally! someone told him to stfu! right?) Haha.

Just a quick question. I am aware of the basic rules, and don't want to be made an exception as it's not fair on the others, especially if it comes to due penalties. So in regards to my pages, are there any in particular that are due to have a hammer fall on them? what am I doing right so far and what am I doing wrong?

Mfwatto 10:32, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

I'll have to get back to you on that, but I don't intend to delete any of the NCR military articles so long as they don't violate other rules. I noticed you created another NCR soldier after you wrote this, so I banned you for a week since I figured it was pretty much a direct challenge to the moratorium at that point. If you're not completely turned off from TL by this and care to return when the ban expires, I have an idea I'd like to talk to you about that might help you get a bit of your military fix in without saturating the wiki with a single topic.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 15:08, June 21, 2014 (UTC)
No it was not a direct "challenge" to the "Moratorium". I was however very tired throughout the week and misread the second paragraph where you included characters. I thought characters were still creatable, so after watcing Attack Force Z, I whipped up a page. 
Nonetheless, it was an accident. Anyway. I'm open to ideas and collaboration, so long as it's my taste I'll be a part of it, and as I said to the other guy any of my pages are their pages too. It's there as a foundational resource for people to fall back on when linking things or looking for more background for their characters etc. Mfwatto 05:18, June 29, 2014 (UTC)

Review Devil's Brigade

I'm just gonna ask you to review the Devil's Brigade, b/c me and T42 are doing a co-lab on it. Mkae note of what sections you find flaws, issues and such and let me know, I'll gladly fix these issues. I'm simply trying to clear the air with this article after your previous ominous comment prior to this. CaptainCain (talk) 02:46, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

Everything but Project Fido and the M501 is unacceptably overpowered and should be scrapped. The limitation placed on the M501 is silly and video-gamish, perhaps a better way to communicate the rarity of its use and the scarcity of its ammunition would be to say that it can only be fired with authorization from the highest level, and that efforts are made to recover the shell fragments for recasting. The President's son clashes with canon. Overall, the existence of this group clashes too much with the presentation of the Enclave in canon.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 19:15, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

Ex-Brotherhood Member

Could I make a page about a former Mid-western Brotherhood member?, no ties to the Brotherhood, but with training from his days in the Brotherhood.CarthAntilles (talk) 07:57, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

Just his training? Sure, not a problem.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 19:15, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

NCR Farming Village

Could I make an article about a small NCR farming village? the Village itself would consist of Sandcrete buildings and a small garrison of NCR soldiers, I intend to have it tie in with the current story I'm peicing together, the basis having the Explorers from Vault 14 reach the settlement, and help the villagers combat raiders, improve facillities, and recruit another wastelander to there group. --CarthAntilles (talk) 12:14, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

Why would a farming village have a garrison as opposed to say, a sheriff and deputies?--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 16:52, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
Well, It would be on the frontier, and would have a sandcrete mine not far from its location. --CarthAntilles (talk) 17:59, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
Alright sounds fine. Don't go nuts.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 20:17, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

The Mountaineers

This is a group of people descended from the 10th Moutain Division who sent to West Virginina for weapons testing and civic policing. They have about 2200 men in total all of them armed with high end Pre-war weaponry, ranging from Marksmen Carbines to Energy weapons to special weapons from the Harding Arms Company. they have a medium stock of combat robots ranging from Sentry Bots to Mister Gutsies. The Moutaineers rule over an area of Appalachia from a fort they constructed themselves (made of logs, cemenet and scrap metal) up in the hills. They have artillery they use to bombard any group, person and so on within their domain that proves a threat to their rule.They get most of their ammo for their artillery from their old base yet it is in rather short supply. They patrol the valleys they rule over and extract new recruits from the local populations adding to their numbers. Also one thing I neglected to mention, they joined with local survivalist communities that lived in Appalachia after the bombs fell, forming an alliance despite the two groups being at odds prior to then. Waddya Think? CaptainCain (talk) 22:40, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

Cut out the robots, energy weapons, and artillery; it just makes them seem like Boomers + Brotherhood. Play up their survival skills (mountaineering, woodcraft, etc.) to make them stand out.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 13:48, June 24, 2014 (UTC)
Could the moutaineers have a tank? Like an M1 Abrams, they use it on patrols and for shows of force towards the locals they rule over. CaptainCain (talk) 18:27, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Tanks seem like less than ideal vehicles for mountainous terrain. I have an idea for you: how about some Yao Gui? They might even have a pit of Yao Gui that they throw criminals or dissidents in.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 18:33, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Sure the Yao Guai, I could see them as sort of trained war animals for the Moutaineers along with a form of execution. But i ask about the tank because I plan on having the Moutaineers control a section of Huntington WV and they use it for urban patrol. I know a tank sounds a bit screwy in a moutain.urban enviorment but there is likely nothing some raider has in their arsenal that can hold a torch to an M1. CaptainCain (talk) 19:02, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

No to the tank.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 22:05, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

How about a robotic war hound? Think the Panzerhund from Wolfenstein. It would be an experimental weapon being design by the Harding Securities Company. (Where the Mountaineers get most of their special guns). CaptainCain (talk) 20:35, June 27, 2014 (UTC)
The reference is lost on me. Can this article not be made without exotic technology? Plenty of cool groups have been made without weather dominators, death stars, and gattling tesla coil nuke launcher vertibird tank mech suits. Can the Mountaineers not be rad mountain men survivalists descended from those soldiers?-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 06:15, June 28, 2014 (UTC)
Fine, I'll think something up for these guys. CaptainCain (talk) 10:16, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

Mutant/Former Perpetual

Two things could I develop a mutant species for the NYC wasteland, they're basically people who took shelter in the subway tunnels and after the bombs fell and had the gas masks they wore merged with their bodies turning them into mutants that roam the wastes attacking travellers and dragging them back to their lair. 

Also my I develop a character who is a former member of the Perpetuals , who was caught in the irradiated part of the base and became a ghoul and after serving with the Enclave ghouls awhile he walked out when his normal bretheren began to clear the red zone. he currently acts as a mercenary in the Northwestern Wasteland. So may I? CaptainCain (talk) 20:19, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

So these are mutants with longevity right, not mutants giving birth to gas mask face people. Yes to the perpetual merc.-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 22:38, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah they would be people from the pre-war days. CaptainCain (talk) 01:28, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 16:53, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Vietnam

Could I make a Page about the Pre-War American Invasion of Vietnam from the Chinese Government?

The basic premise is that China has essentaily placed a puppet government in Vietnam, and following requests from the public general Communist hating public, the US moved to invade Vietnam, with the public believing it was a mission to free the Vietnamese, but the real reason being the uncovered Vietnamese Oil abundance in the region, Invading and succsesfully establishing beachheads, and securing the city of Saigon, with losess on both sides, and later continued terrorist action against US forces in Vietnam.

The Oil would later fuel US forces for a limited time, and appease the general public in the US, whilst Chairman Cheng would claim the invasion was 'a act of American imperialism' Year of Start: 2067
Year of End: 2069
Commander US: General Anderson McKarter
Commander Chinese: General Tsuet Jaing Shu
What dya think?

Doesn't quite work out with canon for assorted reasons. The US was maintaining a pretense of only acting in defense of its own territory, vis a vis conflict with China until 2076. The direct conflict with China only began after trade talks broke down in 2066 and the US refused to sell oil to China. If China had de facto control of Vietnam and could pump it for oil prior to that, the trade talks probably wouldn't have gotten so out of hand. If you want to do a write-up of Pre-War military conflicts, I suggest going for something in the European or Middle-Eastern theaters of the Resource Wars, it's a less defined period.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 17:26, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Damn, just wrote up the draft in Word... But alright, though European Battles don't appeal to me so I'll abandon the idea. --CarthAntilles (talk) 17:43, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
If you already wrote it up, I suggest posting it to the Fallout Fanfiction Wiki. They're less concerned with sticking to canon, so it's a good place to experiment as long as you don't mind cohabiting the setting with stuff like mysterious emperors, a potentially contradictory array of presidents, and vaults full of wizards and goblins. I think it's a better idea than just deleting what you wrote.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 18:16, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Since I'm unable to make a page about any battles around Vietnam during the periods of Time I've chosen, could I make a page About Vietnam leading up to the Great War? Basically outlining the Chinese annexation of Vietnam, controlling the region through a puppet government, outrage from the UN and the United States, but basically having no conflict occuring near or at Vietnam, until the Great War where it is essentailly, wiped off the Map.

What dya think? --CarthAntilles (talk) 12:12, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

Sure. You could also describe the conflict between the Chinese and Vietnamese partisans. It's unlikely they'd take annexation laying down.-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 13:30, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

If the problem is a timeline- if you moved some things back 10 years it would work out. If Vietnam got pumped dry during the Resource Wars or just prior (which would seem more likely) then it even help the canonical fact that trade talks ceased 2066 and caused a direct invasion of Alaska.

And as far as your conflicts, what if they (the conflicts) were similar to a Bay of Pigs style battle, with the United States (US) only being involved through training and arming Vietnamese nationals and 'black ops' (operations not confirmed nor denied by a gov't), like the possible US black op to sabotage China's attempt to secure the world's last petroleum which later became the Enclave Oil Rig. --70.186.209.107 21:27, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Sounds good.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 21:39, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Questions about the Devil's Brigade

Could the Devil's Brigade take over the Mojave bunker, or could I make up some other location for them to have in the Mojave. Also does the Devil's Brigade and Perpetuals have a civil war? This is an idea I pitched to T42 seeing as me and him are working on forging a relationship between the Brigade and the Perpeutals and since the George claims to inherit the presidnecy and Major Blackfield openly opposes that idea the two would naturally clash over who was the rightful ruler. Just an Idea I thought I'd ask you about to see if there are any problems.

Also one more question, I don't know where I heard this but do you do pictures for people's characters, could I get one for my Enclave member? I'd like to get a photo for my page. CaptainCain (talk) 20:30, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

A fanon group cannot take over a canon location. I suppose your two groups can fight it out, that should probably be covered in its own article. Dont get crazy and or stupid with it. I would make a picture, but I dont have a working computer at this time.-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 00:36, June 28, 2014 (UTC)
Wait? What? How are you typing this then? Telekinetically? Also check my question in the Mountaineers section. CaptainCain (talk) 00:46, June 28, 2014 (UTC)
I can use my smart phone to go online, but not to run Fallout New Vegas.-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 06:06, June 28, 2014 (UTC)
Oh okay. I'll try and track down a suitbable photo. CaptainCain (talk) 10:42, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

Former Enclave Bunker

Would I able able to make a article about a Enclave Bunker, No connection with the Enclave other than it having been formerly under the ownership of the Enclave, It would however, have been damaged following an attack on the Bunker from an unidentified party, and would be discovered by scavengers, setting up there own little community, oblivious to the Bunkers herritage. What dya think? --CarthAntilles (talk) 16:21, June 30, 2014 (UTC)

First off, in the future please use a more descriptive title: when my talk page gets busy it's difficult to keep track of stuff like "Request" or "A Few Quick Questions." Shutting down an Enclave facility is kind of a big deal, it's typically a job for a major league canon group or a protagonist (or a protagonist with a major league canon group backing them up) so you should definitely give some thought to the responsible party. As for a town springing up around the ruined bunker, how are they ignorant? Did the destroyers wipe out all traces of the Enclave existence from the site? What are they scavenging: scrap metal, concrete, and various items or power armor and energy weapons?--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 19:09, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
So, I'm able to make the page, But I need to define aspects of how it became abandoned? plus, the bunker is relatively small, and over time, scavengers would have taken as they pleased, I also have the premise of how the Bunker was attacked by a tribal band, and eventually overwhelmed in sheer number, the former Enclave Squad there being without the possibillity of major assistance due to its remote location. --CarthAntilles (talk) 08:00, July 1, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, Also; Could I make a Page on the city of Salem? Would suit nicely, with most of my pages being located not far or in the State of Oregon and all, Could I also include Enclave scouting parties in the City also? It being the States capital. --CarthAntilles (talk) 20:54, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

Picture Alignment in my articles/CaptainCain

Throughout my articles the pictures in the infoboxes are always leaning one way or the other, how do you center them? better yet how do you make them take up the whole screen? CaptainCain (talk) 03:16, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

I just edited one of your pages. Go to the history and compare my edit with the previous version. It should become clear.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 03:43, July 1, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. CaptainCain (talk) 10:17, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

Space Station/CaptainCain

Hey OP with many of my articles well on their way to completion, and a few shorter ones on the rise I'd like to ask if I can make a Space station. It would be a reasearch lab for the USSA, mostly testing mineral samples from other planets collected by probes. They study the possibility of weaponizing certain ores and minerals they deem to be weapons grade. They also look into advanced sciences such as quantum physics and the possibiility of colonization of other planets within the solar system. It would be a shorter article and just wanted to clear it with you. Also its name would be an homage to the Venture Bros. CaptainCain (talk) 02:04, July 2, 2014 (UTC)

Oregon Enclave Cell

I'd like to make a Enclave Cell in the State of Oregon, Mainly occupying Kirkman, Smaller outposts, and other such facillities --CarthAntilles (talk) 19:54, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Permission to make an Enclave group will be the prize in a future contest, so keep your eyes peeled for that.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 22:22, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

The City of Salem

I'd like to make a page about the capital city for the state of Oregon, in the Northwest Commonwealth, I already have a decent backstory set and I'm planing to include noteworthy areas, alongside Feral ghoul infested sewer lines, a few scattered survivor settlements, and a mostly functioning Railway line, in relatively good condition. The city will also have one or two Enclave encampments spread throughout the city, since Kirkman is not far from the City, and the Enclave directive at the time, was to retake the United States, through any means.

What dya think? --CarthAntilles (talk) 10:25, July 9, 2014 (UTC)

No Enclave. Salem's a bigger town, so carve it into a couple of different area articles, like I did with the Odessa, Texas stuff or the New Orleans stuff. I highly doubt anyone will want to horn in your Salem action, so it should work out fine if you make it two or three different places (or more, I wouldn't complain).--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 14:06, July 9, 2014 (UTC)

Apologies and Return

Hello, I don't know if you remember me. I'm the guy who wrote a good bit on Mexico last summer. I really do apologize for such a long hiatus, but it has been a busy school year and between that and work I just said to myself I didn't have time to really work on fanfiction. However if I'm still welcome then I intend to get back to it, finishing up Nuevo Progreso and expanding Tamaulipas some more. Like I said I apologize for my absence and I hope to make it up by writing some good articles soon, just thought I'd announce that I'm here so it doesn't look like I popped out of nowhere. Thanks, Florida Born 77 (talk) 00:56, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

You are remembered fondly FB, welcome back.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 06:17, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

Florida BoS Re-do

May I try and re-do these guys? CaptainCain (talk) 14:22, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

Only if you win an upcoming contest wherein a BoS chapter is the prize. :) --OvaltinePatrol (talk) 14:55, July 11, 2014 (UTC)
Is this place going to turn into a sort of Hunger Games for those wishing to do tech groups? If so I volunteer as tribute. CaptainCain (talk) 15:50, July 11, 2014 (UTC)
People seem to be compelled to re-hash canon, and boring parts of canon at that, forever and ever and ever. If I did nothing, there would be Enclave and Brotherhood bunkers everywhere and article 1000 would probably be the New London Enclave or some bullshit. They're guys in power armor sitting in steel boxes underground, one wants to collect all the energy weapons and the other wants to murder everyone. How many times do these two stories need to be told? Apparently a thousand. These contests are a compromise. If people want to write predictable articles about boring shit, I'm going to make them flex their creative muscles elsewhere for the privilege.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 16:17, July 11, 2014 (UTC)
hey its cool by me, i enjoyed working on the last contest. CaptainCain (talk) 17:09, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Contest

For the Contest I'm glad I was invited and I must say its a pretty cool idea. However with only two days and some other ideas floating around in my mind, anything I would to advance fair Australia would be pretty sub-par so I'm just gonna say thanks but no thanks there, all though I'd be really interested in participating in any upcoming ones, I just don't have the time, y'know? Well anyways, thanks for welcoming me back, I hope to get some more done here Florida Born 77 (talk) 20:31, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

Vivaporius' Old Articles

I didn't know my stuff was put up for adoption nor was I told of this development. And langiush really wouldn't be the best word to use, since the Morgan Family was the most developed articles I had, and if my memory serves my right, one of the longest on the site (I'll have to check to see if that is correct). I'll let him know then. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 21:21, July 14, 2014 (UTC)

Since I deal with articles on an individual basis, these notices go on the talk pages of the articles. I think in this instance, Homosursussus adopted the related articles to one or more articles that were put up for adoption. This is something he started a couple of months ago pursuant to stuff written years ago. Rebelyon for instance was put on notice in April 2012 and adopted in May of this year. In any event, I'm sure Homosur will probably not contest it, or at least not do so strongly. Be aware though, that there's still restrictions on large organizations, high-tech stuff, and military armaments.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 21:31, July 14, 2014 (UTC)

Republic of Liberty

Hey OP, I wanted to get your opinion on a nation I'd been planning on posting (until RL issues got in the way). Before I continue working on it, I wanted some critique on it. Tried to make it as plausible, reasonable, and canon-friendly as possible, wrapping up three factions I had into one for logistical purposes. Your thoughts?

OP, I need you in chat please. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 15:53, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

El Paso

OP, how's El Paso looking? Anyone using it for anything of worth? Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 17:23, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

I once made a town built into the ruins of a highrise that had been knocked to its side there, defending itself from Juarez-based raiders, but that was deleted with everything else during the big reboot, so it's clear now. El Paso's a big town, so a few articles could be made out of it. So treat it accordingly, don't call dibs in one article, but you could end up writing about all of it if nobody else is so inclined.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 17:30, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
You know me better than that. I squeezed University Park and Mercy out of Houston and plenty of space to work on. So don't worry, I'm mostly interested in Fort Bliss. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 17:33, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
What are you thinking of doing with Fort Bliss?--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 17:35, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Gonna use it for a faction I have planned. They'll be based out of it, conducting their business dealings from the safety of the fort. Helps them managing their weapon deals, merc operations, and securing their finances. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 17:47, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

What are their numbers and tech level like?--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 17:49, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

Are we really doing this? Fine. They have some energy weapons, but enough to make it a status symbol and a boss battle reward. And their numbers are fewer than a hundred, but more than fifty. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 17:53, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
We are really doing this. Don't feel special though, some things other, newer authors have done has prompted me to be a bit more active at the beginning of the process to avoid issues later. Numbers are fine, and you're talking about some energy weapons among the leadership? What do they do for armor and other equipment?--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 18:03, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, had an interview. On armor, their mostly mercs and scavengers. They have what the have, or what they could take from others and make themselves. The higher-ups have better armor (some have power armor, but that depends on the OOC permissions), while the majority of the guys at the bottom have all types of armor either purchased, made themselves, or given to them by the group for organizational reasons (or none at all ;D). Equipment is produced on-site and given to them as needed. Stimpaks, Med-X, Psycho, and medicine are easy to get their hands on. Stealth-Boys and energy cells harder to come by unless they know a good source. I'm planning to link them with the Cazadoras since Nevada is kinda dried up like an old lady's uterus, so most of the equipment is going to be old, and rusty. Though I may just make the Cazadoras their own group somewhere else, with loose ties to the group. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 21:29, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

You could, but you can't preemptively write in the power armor ahead of actually winning.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 21:46, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I didn't plan too, which is why I said it depended on what permission I can get outside of the article. So you won't see any power armor unless I have permission to have power armor first. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 21:53, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

Music Template

Screaming Eagles

okay OP, these guys are basically descended from the 506th Airborne Regiment and the 1st Ranger battalion. These men were on maneuvers at Fort Jackson when the war started, they hid in the base's massive bunker (built as a side contract by Vault Tec) until 2090. Upon their emergence they were assaulted by a group of raiders when they sent out a messgae into wastes trying to locate any form of the US Government. The Raiders attack the unprepared eagles and manage to kill, wound or maim around 150 of them. to cease the rambling they basically start a war with some Pirate states along the South Carolina coast and end up having to become mercs to help pay for all the ammo they need for the war. However they don't need food as a GECK came with the bunker and was used to refertilize the earth to allow the Eagles to grow crops in the old PT field.

As for tech they have the GECK as stated above but they also have access to C-47s and C-45s which they scavenged and promptly broke and brought back to base to be rebuilt. These planes are used to transport the soldiers to whatever jobs they were hired to do (usually attack this pirate group or escort this caravan or this convoy) along with a special variant called the 'Mammoth' a C-47 they took all seating out of and loaded up with weaponry, four .50 caliber HMGs in the wings with six M60s or other LMGs mounted in side firing ports along with a single Pack Howizter mounted in the nose. This is similair to what the Americans did with their B-25 and B-24s in WW2 in order to make them ground support craft. As for interactions with the outside world, Fort Jackson is heavily fortified with mines, traps, guard towers, snipers, MG nests and patrols watching the perimeter. Any merchant looking to trade with the Eagles has to drop his or her good 100ft from the front Checkpoint and come back in one hour after the goods had been collected and a payment left for them.

Anyone looking to hire the Eagles for a job must declare it 100ft from the front checkpoint and will be allowed in, otherwise they will be shot by one of the snipers or a mortar will be fired on them. They have access to normal pre-war weaponry and anything else they can recover. They also have access to a few heavy and light mortars which are reserved for base defense. The mortars can fire explosive, along with White Phosphorous rounds along with Tabun gas rouns which were kept on base. So does it sound good or too much? Forgot to mention this but the Enclave attack the base and there is this long three week siege between the Enclave forces and the Eagles.CaptainCain (talk) 14:16, July 19, 2014 (UTC) 

So a large military group with planes and a GECK. No dude, just no. I know you weren't here in 2009-2010, but trust me that would have fit in during that time, when we voted to delete everything.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 14:41, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
could it be modified to fit the bill better? CaptainCain (talk) 14:46, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
I'll give it some thought, but I don't see how it could be made reasonable and interesting right now.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 14:50, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

I was reminded that we once had a group called the Screaming Eagles. Sure enough a quick look in the deletion logs shows that they were deleted 10/30/2010. They were a bigass military group with power armor, all kinds of ranks and specialists, ammunition presses, and a big fort.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 16:21, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

What do you think

Okay, I wanted to create a mutant group who are a sub-group of normal humans. Now the idea is that they are the spawn of a Brotherhood scribe who wanted to create a better human, but was either kicked out of the Brotherhood for tampering with human DNA (thanks to the Brotherhood's purist beliefs), or fled knowing he would be killed for violating Brotherhood code. Now they wouldn't be superhuman, but more along the same level as Olympic athletes in terms of strength, stamina, and endurance (since they are mostly the peak of human physicality). They would have a few special traits, such as telomere caps which break down slower than in humans, so the aging process is much slower, though they wouldn't live any longer than me or you (aging kicks in around the 70s or 80s). Think being in your prime until you reach the age of 80, then you being to break down in the last five or six years of your life. The "golden years" of these guys ain't pretty to watch.

In addition to their aging trait, they'd lack recessive alleles, so interbreeding wouldn't be an issue, allowing them to avoid intermingling with others and adding to their belief they need no interaction with the outside world. Their size would be capped around five hundred or so, their numbers in check thanks to their culture of warfare (due to their ancestry), so you don't have to worry about these guys running around in massive numbers (or I could screw over their repoductive abilties). Tech-wise, they don't really have any energy weapons outside of those their leaders possess (which would be few). They believe regular guns to be superior thanks to their easier maintenance and greater supply of ammo. As to where I plan to put them, I was thinking somewhere in Texas, either in Foot Hood or at Fort Bliss, so they have plenty of interaction with the hostile parties of the wasteland.

Their story would be used in conjunction with the cloning bit I spoke to you about a few months ago. In all, the story of the should fit quite nicely with canon, and within the limits of the sites rules. So, what do you think? Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 19:53, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, and on another note, I noticed that the Morgan Family was never put up for adoption, so I wanted to know why Homo got the article when it was never put on the adoption page (especially since it wasn't a stub either). I already remade the Morgans into a moderate group, so this is more about closure. Though seeing Homo turn it into an even worse page than it was, that makes no sense and seems to be more of a joke than anything else, and yet is allowed to exist confuses me. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 19:55, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
They sound a little too super.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 00:05, July 20, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I suppose they do, I guess. But that was kinda the goal of the project. Not to make them super and all (they still have the same flaws, i.e. lower reproductive rate), but just make strides into making them a bit better than normal humans. Anyway, I don't know what makes them so super. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 01:15, July 20, 2014 (UTC)

Are you into comic books at all? Imagine an entire race of people made up of people like Captain America, Black Panther, Batman, Shang Chi, etc. Pick your favorite superhero/supervillain filed under "peak human."--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 04:40, July 20, 2014 (UTC)

I read them sometimes (not a lot to honest), but I was thinking more along the lines of Abebe Bikila, Michael Phelps (I'm shocked I'm using him as an example), Muhammad Ali, and Paul Anderson. People who could push the limits of their bodies realistically. I don't expect my guys to have wounds that can heal instantly (Cap. America), infinite amounts of wealth and technology (Batman and Black Panther), or being Chinese (I honestly know nothing about Shang Chi, never heard of him). Besides, in a setting where you already have people who can practically live forever like the ghouls, or have superhuman strength like the super-mutants and cyborgs, plus people who fall into some green goop and turn into monsters, I think have people who don't end up with arthritis and wrinkles until they hit 80, or can have sex with their hot a** sister and not end up with a cyclops, is the least of your worries. Olympians aren't superhuman, nor are my mutants. You shoot one and they'll bleed to death. Hit em over the head with a bat and they'll probably become a vegetable. I'm not asking from superhumans or Bruce Wayne, just some guys who can push themselves farther than most normal people can. Heck, I even threw in some weaknesses and limits just in case. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 16:31, July 20, 2014 (UTC)

Lone Super Mutant with a Gatling Laser?

Ok, so this is an article that I got an idea for the other day when I was out at work and I reckoned I ought to run it by you because it involves super mutants and high-tech weaponry. Note that this article is in the pipeline and not going to happen until I get El Confederado finished and do the Bandoleros and work on Harland Ross. I just need to know if this idea is acceptable. So what I'm thinking is a mutant from the Master's army who after The Cathedral went haywire wandered down to Tamaulipas with a gatling laser. He finds a small village in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains and attacks it, nearly wiping out the poor paisanos. However as he drives them into the church they leave an offering of food on the doorstep. He takes it and begins to communicate and a deal is struck, if he is fed and offered a woman then he will spare the town and protect it. The townsmen agree and thus begins a grim tradition where the mutant lives in a cave in a mountain high above the village and overlooking it as this town is at the base of a mountain range. One night when comancheros attack all that is heard is a roaring and red lights and all that is left is ash as the mutant protects the people who bring him food and once a year bring him a woman. The village, being protected is relatively prosperous and appears a bastion of civilization in the otherwise rough and tumble Sierra Madres, however it holds the dark secret of human sacrifice to a monster (with them often plucking travelers out of their inn/hotel for sacrifice). I know it's not the most original idea but its a fallout take on the whole sacrifice to the monster so he don't eat us. Accordingly though this requires a monster who is high-powered so I have to ask, is it ok if I do this in a week or so? Florida Born 77 (talk) 15:25, July 22, 2014 (UTC)

Permission for Jean-Napoleon.

OP, this is concerning that new article of mine. I would like your permission and advice on it since it involves the Royaume. I want Jean-Napoleon to be of noble birth, such as to the Comte or Baron of New Iberia. Giving him an educated and spoiled upbringing, he's a rogue a gambler and a playboy.

My idea for how he got from New Orleans to Mexico is that when he was nineteen he stabbed then shot dead an important nobleman from another Barony in a dispute over a prostitute in the French Quarter, say for instance a family member of the Comte of Morgan City. This results in a sticky situation where the Comte of Morgan City wants Jean-Napoleon's neck, but Jean-Napoleon's father threatens to have any agent sent to arrest his son shot on sight, almost threatening a Royaume civil war as Vermilionville sides with the Arceneaux family (due to family ties) while The French Quarter, Jacksonia, Franklin, and Houma side with Morgan City. It seems for a brief time that the cities may fight it out until James St. Just steps in and quickly puts down this little infighting by slapping some sense into some people in the Arceneaux family and telling them that they'll hand Jean-Napoleon over or lose their title and their lives. They agree but by the time that the Gendarme move in for the arrest they find nothing in his room and then find that the leader of the Gendarme arrest force has had his horse stolen. He makes it through the swamps and down to Texas where he sails down the coast to the Corpse where he makes for Mexico. Is this idea good? Alright to include? Needs some work? Or bad? Or what? Like I said I just feel I should bring it to you since it's your faction and I need to know before I take the time to write it out. Thanks. Florida Born 77 (talk) 01:13, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Not sure if there's horses in that area, perhaps he makes his escape by way of Rafters? Also, the French Quarter, or rather Vieux Carré is explicitly not part of the Royaume. Obed Narcisse and his guys run that as an independent enclave. Not sure if perhaps you meant Tuloya.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 01:19, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Ok yeah, rafters would work. And Tuloya. I just wanted to make sure the idea of the Royaume briefly almost going into civil war over a killing for like two or so weeks and putting my character as a noble in your faction was ok so I didn't get an angry post on the talk page asking why I hijacked your faction is all. Florida Born 77 (talk) 01:25, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

One last thing. I dont think the Royaume is quite old enough for the typical twisted family trees of historic aristocracies. Perhaps find another reason for Vermilionville to side as it does.-OvaltinePatrol (talk) 01:46, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Alright, I'll bring it down to what makes the world go round, money. I'll make it so that it was in Vermilionville's economic interest to side with New Iberia in the dispute. Something like that, I'm writing his youth out in another tab. Thanks a lot, man. Also thanks for approving the mutant idea. That'll be a quick one or two day article after or near the end of this before another big article like Comales and El Confederado was. Florida Born 77 (talk) 02:01, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Punishment Society

As we discussed in chat they're a group of police officers, prison guards, etc who are sent into a specially designed, prison vault it has cell blocks, a recreation yard and a place for the prisoners to toil. The whole idea being that vault-tec wished to test if the whole guards, prisoners mentality would stick and how long the system could last. The vault dwellers themselves are taught from an early age that commiting a crime no matter how slight is an unforgivable offense and thus all those who commit crimes deserve their imprisonment, below the Vault is a Limestone deposit that the guards have the prisoners mine yet not having a purpose for the limestone until the vault is opened in 2177 and the Overseer has the occupants round up the prisoners and march them back to their old work place Ahndung State Prison about a mile from the site of the vault. The Prison has seen better days and after wiping out a group of raiders kept in the prison they re-inhabit it getting the old systems up and running and making repairs to the aged building using the Limestone they mined to make concrete. The equipment they get from searching the wasteland, within the prison they become the Punishment Society determined to punish hose in need of it and thus 'arrest' raiders, bandits, druggies, anyone who defies their high sense of pre-war morals. The Prison itself is partially human controlled but they're supported by a few Sentry bots and Mister Gutsies that float around the prison. I realise my biggest issue for why the society would bother going after the wasteland thugs. So that's why the Society is indoctrinated as children to view all crime as inexcuseable and thus deserved of whatever punishment they get, this continues after they leave the vault which I might add just turns into a work site for the Society to give their prisoners something to do.

There probably will be some prison breaks, riots and violence naturally. CaptainCain (talk) 11:41, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

North Carolina Stuff

Hello! I'm working on my articles for Eastern North Carolina. There are some plans that I have that, upon reading the rules again, may require admin approval. Luckily, they aren't too crazy and should be able to be added without issue. My first request is about a character named Knight, who actually requires two forms of approval. He is a ghoul from Wilmington who rallied the gangs of the city to stop fighting. I would like to request permission to name his article with this nickname since nobody really knows his real name. Secondly, he wears Power Armor that he found at Fort Bragg/Lejeune/Myrtle Beach AFB (some major military base. Haven't decided which). He isn't a member of the Enclave, BoS, or any other high-tech faction. He's basically some guy who found a suit of armor. I don't plan on the BoS even showing up in my story arcs, but if I decide to have them appear, I imagine it would be relatively awkward.

This brings me to my next request: mutated animals. There is a nuclear power plant near Wilmington that leaked radiation over the Cape Fear area. Most of the mutants there aren't smart (man-eating venus flytraps and such), but there is an island in the area that is a sanctuary to sea turtles. I'd like to see what I can do with mutated, intelligent turtles. I know it sounds stupid, but in a hyper-evolved ecosystem, you take what you can get. They won't have much of a society save for four that live in a city's sewers named after Renaissance painters.

Lastly, and I probably should have asked this already, I have a small community at Kitty Hawke that specializes in high-tech things. Being the location of the first powered, manned flight, I think it'd be fitting for it to be a center of science and the location of a few vertibirds and other high-tech things.

I have good things planned for all of these articles and I hope that these ideas can all be incorporated into my works.

Regards,

-CrimsonAssassin-See you, space cowboys 21:15, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

Yes to the ghoul and the name, but unless you win the current contest or make an arrangement with the winner to score the power armor you'll have to do with some metal armor of the non-powered variety. No to ninja turtles. What would you do with Kitty Hawke if power armor and vertibirds are off the table, which they are, unless you talk Homosursussus into gifting you his vertibird prize, or win a future one for yourself.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 06:49, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, fair enough. Would a suit of armor made from some pieces of power armor (I'm talking maybe a pauldron, a damaged helmet, and a damaged chestpiece) and random other armors be doable? Also, would it be okay if the turtles were just semi-intelligent in that case (like Mirelurks basically). Regarding Kitty Hawk, I mean I'd keep it around, just with other stuff. There aren't restrictions on planes or robots or other things. At any rate, thanks for getting back to me. CrimsonAssassin-See you, space cowboys 18:52, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
Mirelurks never struck me as having more than animal intelligence, so if that's what you mean then it's fine but we already have some kind of mutant turtles on site. Your ideas of what there are and aren't restrictions on is of some concern to me. I know the rules don't explicitly name robots and planes, but I consider them covered under "High Technology". I changed the title of this conversational thread myself but I'd like to refer you to this bit that I have towards the top of the talk page:
"When you're making titles, please don't make them vague. I frequently have to navigate several conversations here. Titling your inquiry something like "Question" or "Request" is not helpful."
―Me.
--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 21:19, August 3, 2014 (UTC)
Odd. Planes don't exactly strike me as high-tech considering their use for over a century. The trick is finding one that is servicable. Boomers, hardly a high-tech society at all, managed to get a plane servicable in FO:NV. I'll bet some of those planes on Rivet City could, in theory, be serviced and flown around by a mechanic who knows his way around a plane and/or has reference. That said, I only want to have something flying in Kitty Hawk for its legacy of being the first site of a powered, manned flight. Regarding robots, Mister Handy/Gutsy and Protectron units are also very widespread in the Fallout world. While many of them are malfunctioning, it is not odd to see working robots running around with caravans, merchants, or otherwise. CrimsonAssassin-See you, space cowboys 14:57, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
Airplanes are a mature technology certainly, but the methods of their creation, upkeep, and operation are probably not well known in a post-apocalyptic world. As for restricting robots, it's a matter of curtailing abuse. We've had more than one person trying their hand at a bigger, better robot army a la Fallout Tactics. I didn't say that you were not going to be able to make Kitty Hawk, I only expressed concern over your interpretation of the rules. I say no to the vertibirds just because it'd be kind of a jerk move to the winner of the relevant contest. Besides, Kitty Hawk is better associated with a fixed wing aircraft. They can have a working fighter jet, and a few Mr. Handy robots and protectrons to demonstrate their tech proficiency.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 15:32, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

I would certainly imagine people have tried robot armies lol. At any rate, I'd be more than happy with the jet and robots. Also, I didn't mean to scare you regarding the rules. Different wiki procedure from what I'm used to and all. Alternative histories generally don't involve stepping on people's toes and working with restricted canon. CrimsonAssassin-See you, space cowboys 16:02, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

I'd rather not have those kinds of restrictions, but history has demonstrated that people don't handle it well. You end up with enormous, all-powerful groups that don't feel the least bit post-apocalyptic that either conquer everything and leave no real room for other works or have to come up with incredulous reasons for why they don't.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 17:24, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Any particular reason you decided to delete Vault 113 after I said I'd adopt it???? CaptainCain (talk) 21:01, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

You used the adoption process in an attempt to circumvent the rules. Vaults require permission, yet you completely changed the location and purpose of the vault without prior consultation.

The Fighting 33rd/Shamed Prince

The gist of this group is they are a group of Arizonan National Guardsmen who were posted to the border region of the US-Mexico border region to stem the flow of illegals immigrants. Well the aftermath of the bombs basically traumatized the Guardsmen watching as people tore each other apart trying to get in and out of the US and having to make the hard choices at the end of a rifle ending with alot of innocents being killed. Well they swore vengeance against the cartels and other criminal organizations of Mexico and they took off on a 'crusade' to destroy those the cartels that they had fought before the war an basically try and bring order to the border region. However they took this crusade well beyond what was needed and ended up becoming butchers as they fight the cartels and other hostile tribes killing civilians and women alike, using weapons like White Phosphorus against the civilians. In the end they arrived in the 'pink zone' of the Tampulias region and taking over a former Border patrol post as their HQ they are currently fighting the Confederates in laredo and Los bandeleros, (me and FB have this planned out) on the other hand there are three Squadrons who have been sent off on forging missions, locating remnants of the Mexican Government or simply pursuing fleeing enemies. these three squadron number about 50 men each and are commanded by rather colorful commanders. The 33rd in itself isn't a very stationary group also, they're nomadic traveling in a massive convoy of pre-war trucks, brahmin carts and caravans going where ever the 'crusade' calls them. They have a single UH-60 Blackhawk for recon, elite troop transport and VIP transport. 

As for the other topic I had an idea for a sort of banished prince of the Royaume, he's been shamed (in battle or whatever) and is sent off on a quest to redeem himself. Capture the chief of the Atlantic Council (pirate organization) and bring him back to the Royaume. He has a single warship and a group of soldiers under his command. what do you think?

Cut out the Blackhawk and that faction sounds alright. We can talk about the Royaume thing in chat.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 20:08, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

Fusileros Fonesca Invitation

Hey OP, me, Florida and Walrus are doing yet another co-lab and since we four are arguably the most active here we figured we'd invite you to join in on the Fusileros. Basically these guys are a group of twelve mexican and Americn mercs, cowboys, adventurers and treasure hunters who are in Tamaulipas looking for a cache of gold that Pancho Villa left in the mountains during the many mexican civil wars and uprisings. So we all make two characters and thus we all get to write the various adventures of the group. They may even appear in our RP. So let us all know what you think. CaptainCain (talk) 23:51, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

I may participate, my attention is kind of divided right now. Thanks for the invite!--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 23:54, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

Tinsel-Town Permission

I'd like to make a article on, Essentaily, a Hollywood-esk City, with the glamour of the old World movies and such, I'm thinking state that before the War, it made a few famous titles, but when the bombs fell, the city essentailly was left in shambles, but most of the camera, recording and set designing studios survived, allowing some to still use the equipment from before the War, What dya think -CarthAntilles (talk) 19:15, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Go for it.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 02:42, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Panama Canal Zone

Hey OP, I was just thinking in the fallout timeline I don't think the US would've given up the Panama Canal zone, being a very self centered nation they would've wanted control over a vital trade route like that and I doubt they would've given it up to a small nation like Panama. What I'm getting at is I have an idea for a group but I want to knpw your opinion about the setting before I go planning anything. CaptainCain (talk) 19:30, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rather than saying they never gave it up, could just say that things went as they did and the canal was turned over in the 1970s but then it was seized again during the lead-up to the Great War.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 21:52, August 8, 2014 (UTC)
Uhhhh okay CaptainCain (talk) 01:10, August 9, 2014 (UTC)

Senator Norman Herrick

Hey OP I just wanted clearance to make this character, Norman Herrick an NCR Senator whose a bit more more proactive than his fellow senators. For starters he's not crooked, he's a law and order kind of man from the frontier, elected by the people of New Essex in southern california near Silverton. He took the lawless town that was New Essex when he first arrived there and cleaned it up of all gangs, bandits, raiders and hostile tribals by using a personally run militia and his two old revolvers. He's currently running for president within the NCR, and is rather popular that is until he is assassinated by a gang of raiders out for revenge. He's born in a small rnach outside Goodsprings, and traveled the NCR as a bounty hunter, sheriff, trooper and scalp hunter, naturally not in that order. so do you think I can make him or no? CaptainCain (talk) 01:08, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Go for it.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 02:42, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

I'd like some advice

Hi, I'm heavymetalbronie :D

I was told by CaptainCain that you could help me if I wanted to make a group or organization, as I have a group in mind but am not sure how sound it would be within the fallout universe.

I'll have no clue until you share some details :). Also, you can sign your posts by putting -~~~~ at the end of your posts.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 22:49, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Well the basic idea is that it's a mercinary group that look/dress like american vietnam war era soldiers. They're a medium sized group that largely operates in the mid west and west coast of america. (that's all I have for now-Heavymetalbronie (talk) 20:52, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
Sounds OK, just don't violate any rules or credulity in general.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 21:16, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

Do you have those rules written down so I can read them up? Also I had an idea in mind that they'd have a few of these [[1]] to get many people and supplies around. Would that be okay with you--Heavymetalbronie (talk) 21:46, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

You haven't read the rules? There's a link to them around the top of the front page of the wiki. Wow, I wonder who else hasn't read them.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 22:10, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I've read thew rules now. Now, I understand that an organization can't have power armor, but what about trucks like the ones you see in fallout 3 and new vegas? Heavymetalbronie (talk) 19:33, August 18, 2014 (UTC)
I guess I can just make the page and you or others will tell me what I've done wrongHeavymetalbronie (talk) 21:19, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

User Sandboxes

I noticed awhile back that Viva has a User Sandbox, how does one create one? CaptainCain (talk) 20:33, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Alpha and Omega

This is basically a group I thought up the other day in chat with walrus. Basically Alpha and Omega are two Enclave securty squads, one commanded by Sgt. Jimmy Greene while the other squad is commanded by Captain Jordan Hayes. They were soldiers before the great war, (regular soldiers so no power armor) and were given the post of guarding a bunker full of important items to the US, mostly cultural items made up of mostly Americana, everything from vintage Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley records to posters for John Wayne flicks and Norman Rockwell paintings. The soldiers (officially given the assignment by their commanding officers) were sent to the bunker where they were kept in cryo-pods until 2100, they were then awoken and their jobs commenced with orders being recieved from the oil rig. All goes well until they have an ideological rift and one squad, Alpha under Greene's command goes sides one way and Hayes' squad the other. They end up fighting one another when Hayes' attempt to crack down on greene and thus creating a civil war within the bunker itself. With Hayes' having the support of the bunker security system and Greene getting help from wasters whom they recruit. they are located in Tamaulipas, One last thing the ideological rift they encounter is how to adress the wasteland, having  not been indoctrinated by the Enclave sgt. Greene thinks they ought to use the equipment they have to make a safe haven for the wasters and help them while Cpt. hayes' thinks that whatever is on the surface is contaminated and needs to be swept away soe that the human race can flourish, he also views Greene's view of helping the surface and the people above disgusting. So sound good, I'm willing to work with you to make this article ideal,. CaptainCain (talk) 20:06, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

Article adoption

Hey OP can I still adopt articles? The reason I ask is that there are several articles that I'm interested in and would like to re-write. Let me know. CaptainCain (talk) 14:39, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

I suppose you could, but the idea of adoption is to keep an article within its original concept, not transform it into something completely different and certainly not backdoor rules violations with it. Get permission for individual articles you want to adopt from another admin.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 14:44, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

Gotcha, so what I did with Gordon is a no go? CaptainCain (talk) 14:47, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

Wow, yeah that's a big no. Or what you did with that Vault I deleted. You're not really adopting at that point, just making a different article with the same name. You can't be expected to know exactly what the original author intended, but you need to build based on what they had.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 15:00, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

Map

How did you get the map on here? do you have to go to the wikia labs and copy it, or is it some admin magic? asking for a friend. add me on MySpace! (talk) 01:30, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, don't really remember. I know the feature has to first be activated on the wiki in question, which does require an admin. It's in the same section that lets you activate other stuff, such as achievements.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 03:30, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

Dmeitri Volkov the Rotten Russian

Hello Ovaltine, I am The Rotten Russian Dmeitri Volkov, and I was wanting to check and see what you think of the stuff me and my comrade the Walrus King have done on Fallout Fan Central

If I get a chance to look, I'll let you know.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 04:35, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

OP, if you're still around, i need to talk to you in chat. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 17:41, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Exiled Prince 

To answer your question about the exiled prince, eh not really I was planning on integrating him into the Xavier-Bonaparte Aristocracy that rules Les Imperiaux . To that end my activity is going to be a little less then usual as I've gotten involved more heavily nvolved on both the 40k wiki and the Alternative History wiki. But I will NOT disappear.

Ok, thanks for responding.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 18:31, September 21, 2014 (UTC)

Odysseus Thorn

Could you please delete Odysseus Thorn? He's unneeded, was made for the sole purpose of an RP that I didn't really participate in and I put minimal thought into him.--Raven the Iron Fist (talk) 05:37, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Done.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 08:21, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Nuclearinsanity

Hello. After tracing it back, I think I ought to speak to you, as you are an Admin as well as the author of numerous articles this message concerns.

I go by Ted Empty on certain channels of the Web, Nuclearinsanity on others, and I intend on writing a pair of fanfics for Fallout employing elements of both the Boise Wasteland and Gulf Wasteland.

Fallout: Slaughtertown and Fallout: Big Easy.

Tranqulity Lane will be fully credited for the select inclusions but I thought it fair to ask first.--Nuclearinsanity (talk) 02:18, October 6, 2014 (UTC)

If you're just writing on this wiki, it's probably alright. I would rather my own content not be used off-site though. I would talk to T42 as he wrote Boise Wasteland.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 02:29, October 6, 2014 (UTC)
It was to be on Fanfiction. I was going to credit you highly and direct people Tranqulity Lane's way both from Fanfiction and Spacebattles, if that provides any incentive. This wiki deserves to be larger anyhow and it's one of the best ways I can think of to direct people towards it. I don't wish to sound beggy, but I do implore you to at least consider the possibility. I will respect your wishes if you choose otherwise--Nuclearinsanity (talk) 02:34, October 6, 2014 (UTC)
As far as I can recall, you're the first person to ask for this sort of thing. Against my better, paranoid instincts, I'll give you permission to use my content if properly credited. I can't give you permission to use other peoples content though, you'll need to check with individual authors.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 02:39, October 6, 2014 (UTC)


Thank you, and I will assure you you will not regret this descision.

The first update should be this upcoming friday.

Nuclearinsanity (talk) 02:41, October 6, 2014 (UTC)

Oh I'm sorry I didn't know high tech factions (GenTech) weren't allowed as for the virians you can deleate those I guess, again sorry for the troubles i just didn't know. Nrex117 (talk) 19:35, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry but I did not mean any disrespect at all.

I am sorry about creating a high tech faction (GenTech) as I did not know that was against the rules same goes for the Virians.

And I didn't mean ANY disrespect from deleating the deleation notice and if the has offended the admins in any way I am sorry. Nrex117 (talk) 19:43, October 12, 2014 (UTC) 

Understood. Based on prior experience with this sort of thing, I am quick to assume the worst. It can be difficult to determine motives online. No offense meant and no harm done.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 20:47, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

Just T being T

Dude, I just saw your expansions on Douchard and his homeworld and the local marines, I so cant wait till I get back to that wiki now because of this amazing shit you know you like to tread the line between humor and actual 40k grimness and shit do I love it. (P.S. I got some original work thats almost finished and might actually be good enough to try and publish, I'd be honored if you'd give me an idea of what you think of the finished result when it is finished in the next month or so)

Texas Overhaul

I left you message on the Texas Talk Page OP. It regards a potential overhaul for the region pages and such. --Musiekutsueki (talk) 19:56, November 2, 2014 (UTC)

Request for a new Template

Could you make a new Template, an event template, like the one present on the Fallout wiki's Battle of Anchorage page, showing the leaders, events, Image at the top of course and when it began and ended, would make some battle pages more presentable and such.--CarthAntilles (talk) 19:32, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

No, but not because I'm unwilling. I don't actually know how to do much with templates.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 21:34, November 6, 2014 (UTC)
Hey Carth I recommend you try asking HM, he handles creation of templates and is pretty good at it to. CaptainCain (talk) 00:42, November 7, 2014 (UTC)

Clean-Slate

If at all possible, could you delete all of my articles? I'm gonna come back to the wiki, seen as I've found renewed interest in Fallout, but frankly most of my articles are shite. If you could delete the old ones, think of it as quality control if you will, that'd be great. ScienceGuy44 (talk) 20:25, November 7, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks greatly. I'm going to get work on some new pages. ScienceGuy44 (talk) 09:02, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

United Slavers Union

I'd like to make a page about the United Slavers Union, a group which operated in the East with Caesars Legion and near the fringes of the NCR's borders, It'll be the main enemy faction involved in the NCR-Slaver war, since there is no page by that name, and I've been updating my picture making to include poses for characters, so pictures should look nice, and I've got a nice back story all set for them. CarthAntilles (talk) 13:23, November 9, 2014 (UTC)

Consider the culture and mores of the Legion before you proceed, but I'm not reading anything here that violates the rules.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 02:45, November 10, 2014 (UTC)
Carth, will you incorporate the Slaver's Guild from Fallout 2? Given the status from the game, they are the slavers in the NCR and its territories. I plan to involve them into my Baja pages. And based off Jeanie May's dealings with the Legion I do think that your idea to involve this Union with the Legion could work out well. But I didn't know if you were gonna talk about the Guild or many this Union is its continuation/evolution... Am I right? --Musiekutsueki (talk) 04:27, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

New Region for Texas

In the future I plan to build many pages around the Hill Country of Texas. I don't know if you want to wait for a couple pages to be put out before the region template was created or not. I mean, I don't plan to write these pages for at least a couple weeks, more likely a month or so. But if the template were put up first, it would be easier for me to organize and figure how I will link the articles to each other. Either way is fine by me, I would just like to know how you'd like to handle it.

PS: I don't know if creating a region page like Corpse Coast takes any special work or not.--Musiekutsueki (talk) 02:15, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

The Corpse Coast page is just a regular page, I'm not sure what you mean by that. My preference is for me to not personally lift a finger until you've actually got stuff written and the template is needed.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 02:47, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

Page Deletion Request

The pages are:

  • Operation COBALT
  • Battle of Yorksville
  • Invasion of Daybreak Island

I've found them to be quite difficult to edit and work with, I don't see much change in this either, Your choice though.

Thanks. CarthAntilles (talk) 15:27, November 11, 2014 (UTC)

FF promotion

Hi Ajax,

This is Knakveey from Wikia. We were hoping to promote a fan fiction project/giveaway somewhere on the halo fanon mainpage. Perhaps on the main slider or somewhere on the right rail.

Let me know your thoughts or concerns,

Knakveey (talk) 20:02, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

List of problems I'd like to have addressed (Mainly articles that I'd like to see removed)

Ok, Lots of problems that are annoying me. I've been looking through some of the articles related to the NCR; and some are just badly made, not the more recent ones, those are done very well, but some are done in a Present tense; I and others hate this format, because it makes it sound like the Hoover Damn was Won BY the NCR, and even more annoying, pages like the Mercenary Commandos, Which I just want to see removed, set themselves years after the Battle, and act like the Legion was never there and as if NCR had won every single battle, these articles just make me cringe because it makes NCR sound like an organised Pre-War power, rather than a strugling Post-war power, with few reliable assets.

I've been trying to mend the NCR air Force and SOARS because they are somewhat believable, but the rest I see needing deletion, right down to the battles they were involved in, not the three battles on the Slavers war page, I'm hoping to have those cleaned up, but the others need to have a clean and tidy rather than have it laid out like I described.

(I've also taken the liberty of removing the 'Stealth' Vertibird, because it was apparently developed by just two people using technology that might have been made by the Enclave and the brains of Big mountain, but certainly not by two lone engineers)

  • Mercenary Commandos (Have their own vertibirds because the Enclave got careless and lost two by 'accident')
  • The Arinod (One of their battles, needs to go)
  • Harris Johnson, Don Rawley, Phil Kelly and Lenny Bracks
  • NCR Airborne Mercy Mission (Needs to go, because Hey! Vertibirds can carry nukes and the NCR would actually use them at close range to wipe out some tents, fantastic)
  • Eric the Mad
  • Gordon Swann (Burried at sea, Not likely, I could somehow salvage the article, but I really don't want to)

And one final thing, But not a big one; True Korea, its a bit of a mickey take, and whilst its harmless, it does need to adhere to some sense of seriousness, since the article is a parody of sorts I suppose.

I'm hoping to work on some Alaska battle parts also, since the Anchorage campaign DLC only covers a small part of the campaign, and it took years to re-claim Alaska, If allowed, I'd love to make some pages about battles before the arrival of Chase, since I doubt his character would have seen him on the front lines from 2067 to 2077.

Thanks Ovaltine. CarthAntilles (talk) 10:30, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

I'm inclined to agree with you, would you be willing to articulate these issues to Watto? He should have a chance to respond and fix the issues before deletion.--OvaltinePatrol (talk) 18:59, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
I Know it seems stupid, But I don't know how, I've tried looking up his name but can't find him, even looking at his signature in links doesn't link me to him, is his account suspended or somthing along those lines? CarthAntilles (talk) 20:40, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Cape Henry Crap

Hello OP, been reading through some of my old pages and came upon Cape Henry, this was going to be the first article in an area that I was going to be developing but never did. So kill if you'd please. Glad to see Carth is back now we just need to drag FB and Walrus out from whatever corner their hiding in. However what worries me is that Carth is basically trying to define what comes and goes without the actual author's consent, seems pretty dumb to me, even if some of Watto's pages were a bit out there...anyway I'll return eventually. CaptainCain (talk) 22:37, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, you do have a point about me their, I just didn't like the way he set out some of the pages; present tense for somthing that happened in a past tense, refering to the NCR in most times as if it were a pre-war super power with unlimited resources, and in one article he began using marjuana as a substance that Fiends used, I've no problems with it being in the universe, but still; he could simply use jet or even mentats as an addictive drug. Apologies if I've caused undue concern over the articles, I'm also done with editing the NCR-slaver stuff, going to try to make my own new pages, preferably Pre-war, though nice to hear from others on criticism.
