Fallout Role Play
« on: June 01, 2018, 06:18:00 PM »

Right this is an ultra simple interest check for a Roleplay set in the Fallout universe.

Working title. Based on the newest Fallout game will be. FALLOUT. VAULT 200

with the idea being anybody interested will play a group of people leaving their failing Vault. Vault 212. At an undescided point in time after the Nuclear War to go raid the nearby Vault 200 for the thing to fix their vault.

This is a very basic opening as I have lots of ideas on how the whole thing could play out. But no point in spoiling the plot. Lets just say the group will fight some NPC's learn the secrets of their Vault and Vault-Tech's Evil ways. And explore the vaste wasteland.

Now THIS is interesting, but as far as we know little more than a hundred vaults were built.


Which would be the setting?

Yeah, the where is kind of important, as I've always had a soft spot for FNV...

And I've been in a Fallout mood between replaying Fallout New Vegas and playing the Fallout-themed Hearts of Iron 4 mod "Old World Blues".

But I did check, there were only 122 Vaults constructed.

I am interested enough to be watching this.

The thought of a post apocalyptic wasteland rp in the fallout universe would be very interesting. I mean who hasn’t dream of a big game like fallout being multiplayer oriented.
I feel bowsy is correct, there are so many different ideas and story lines that could be explored. Reminds me of dead island in a way as that game had coop but was quite big and quest oriented.

The starting location though, hmm...

Well. This would be expanding on the known Vaults. Simply because when I went to Uni. Fallout 4 had yet to come out. We did a Roleplay campaign based out of Vault 114. Only for that to become a real Vault.
So by giving the 2 vaults involved as of now the numbers 200 and 212 we dontbrun the risk of those becomming ligit down the line.

Howeven the numbers can easy be changed if people would rath it be kept within strict Canon.

The Primary idea is that the Vault would be a 'Genetic Diversity' Vault. Basically with the Majority of its residents (At least when it was first made.) Comming from nationalities outside the US. You know. So the breeding stock in the Post War World dosnt become stale. Of course there is an unknown vault tech experiment as well.

More details can be explained later. As this is only an idea. Any number of changes can be made. A time hasnt even been picked yet. As it depends on when people want it set. 20 years after the bombs dropped? 50 years, 100? 200?

As for a starting location. I wouldnt know. I am not an American. I dont know all the places. It would be set somewhere yet to be explored in a game. Though maybe next to one that has.

I do have some solid ideas for a plot. But depending on what people want for the setting.

According to a post from last year on /v/, Fallout 76 will be a Rust clone, so I guess we'll have a multiplayer Fallout.

For reference https://boards.fireden.net/v/thread/401449791/#401465240
look at the date.

Starfield is also real but it's several years away.

Fallout Bible #0 says there were 122 known vaults plus some private ones which, I suppose, are for single families.
Since we don't know all 122 of them, we can come up with something within one of these like, say, Vault 120.
The rest is a good idea though.
The way the experiment can backfire (it MUST backfire one way or another) is spontaneous segregation within the vault leading to a civil war inside.

As I said we can change the vault numbers easily. I just arbatrerially chose 200 and 212. My initial ideas were Vault 29 and 96. But suddenly when writing the interest post I couldnt think if those were taken.

As for the Vault Tech experiment. I will keep that secret for now as part of the plot will involve looking for it.

I am personally not fussed as to what the numbers are and if they’re canon or not.

I think a minimum of 200 years is preferred as tying it into the universe of 3 4 and New Vegas makes sense to me. Maybe 5 or 10 years after 4 I don’t mind too much on the specific date.

As for a starting location I’ll list some ideas.

California- plenty of cool stuff we can do there. Go to San Diego, San Francisco or even Los Angeles.

North or South Dakota - be a good place for a location as it’s very open, right next to Canada too.

Illinois/Winconsin Madison and Chicago could be interesting plus they border Canada by lakes.

Well, California is pretty heavily already mapped out and established, as is most of Nevada now. And to be honest, if we went out that way, I'd be more interested in being a Ranger than a Vault Dweller. (As you've seen in the Photo Area, I've already decked myself out as such for wasteland events). Plus the when becomes important, since that is also very important, like do we get caught in the NCR-BoS War or do we have to deal with the result of the Second Battle of Hoover Dam (which then the question becomes; who won? Kimball? Caesar? House? The Courier?) and so on.

Just throwing an idea out there, but one area I liked messing around with in Old World Blues is the Northwestern United States. In that area, the mod places an extremist faction of the Brotherhood of Steel, those who were cast out from the Midwest BoS Chapter, and they're surrounded by cannibalistic tribals, a loose coalition of mercenaries known as "The Cause". They're considered to be the dark side of the Brotherhood, conscripting raiders into their army, enslaving civilians to dig for technology in the remains of Seattle, and absolutely remorseless in who they crush. They're a stone's throw from the "Troll Warren" in what used to be Oregon, remains of The Master's Supermutant army who are trying to figure their own way out, be it by literally consuming humans or enslaving them to build a haven for all mutant-kind. I believe that up there, the Washington Brotherhood already control the local Vault, Vault 6.

Another idea is that in OWB, New Reno, which is a haven for criminals and lowlifes, a true city of sin and vice, has the possibility of being the home for a return of the Enclave. The right people who buy their way into power with Enclave Remnant help could end up handing the city over to them, which in turn would put some rather interesting pressure on the NCR, especially post Second Battle of Hoover Dam. It would put all of Northern Nevada under their control, including Reno and Carson City and all the way to what would have been the border of Utah. In the same mod, the Desert Rangers control central Nevada, patrolling it for the NCR after the Ranger Unification Treaty was signed, and if the Enclave wanted to reclaim Nevada, they would be first in line for an onslaught...

Another thought occurs to me as well, especially in regards to canon -

Turn the world on its head outside. This way, no one can go, "Well my character did X..." "I killed so-and-so in my game." and so on.

For example, in one of my games in Old World Blues (I was playing as Mr. House and New Vegas), the NCR was conquered by the Brotherhood of Steel and Steel Rangers (the Desert Rangers joined the BoS instead).

I actually have an idea if you're looking to be in the California/Nevada area that I can PM you with.

Maybe going with one of the other options would be better to start with since i think all of us starting as vault dwellers would probably be better... I just really am unsure if we should have a vote or I guess continue discussion. I’m ok with Altzek’s south idea but I just want something that has potential for all of us to be happy in some way.
