Fallout Southeast

Unreliable Guide
We should have gone left.

From the mission log of Gai Sum:

“After leaving that cursed house, we foolishly followed this Ghoul on a wild goose chase into forest looking for magical lost ghoul paradise with fertile land. Needless to say, this not work out like he claim. Ghoul only knows where ghoul outpost is, and it is wildly irradiated. Good job team.

“Whole time we are being attacked relentlessly by roving hordes of cursed zombies, and then we run into cannibal slaver camp. If Ghoul isn’t trying to get us killed, he must really be on bad terms with shishen. Pick up two more stragglers who slavers were going to eat, seem like OK guys, but maybe too quick to violence. Also, inevitably stupid like Ghoul and other wasteland natives.

“Hope we get to school before dark, could be good defensive location if fences repaired. Also water. School that size must have at least broken water pump too, try to find it next time and maybe repair. Hopefully, we find radio soon so I can make report, have had to wait for far too long.”

The Adventure Begins for the Third Time

Excerpt from the Journal of Diedryck Waylan:

If I only had a nickel for every time we started this journey… Well I would have fifteen cents.

The first time we left the vault it was exciting. After we returned from an almost deadly encounter with a bear… the second time was somewhat discouraging. After the rad roach… well you get the point. But we finally made it out on our own. Third time’s the charm.

Of course we could not have chosen a better place to seek refuge for the night. We thought it was a great idea to barricade ourselves in the remains of an old abandoned shell of a house. It is funny how we locked ourselves in with some giant spiders in the basement. Even after we took care of the spiders we couldn’t leave the house because there were crazy people outside running around at night.

However, we had to leave. Water and food were not in great supply. So three of us decide to check out the prospects around the general area. Do we find water? No… we find a suicidal ghoul pulled by zombies half way through a police car window and left to die. Or should I say undie. Evidently, the ghoul tells us that the horror films from the past were not all false. There are monsters in the night and they are not nice. Either way, we befriend this interesting fellow named Harman and help him out of his bind. In return he tells us of a place where there are some people. Normal people. Well as normal as we could expect for people living in a real life horror film.

And where there are normals there should be water and food. Of course we check it out. Unfortunately, the fence around what looked like the remains of a school was torn down and the front of the building was wide open. Upon further inspection we find the water source. Not extremely radioactive but not completely safe by our standards. If push comes to shove we might have to chance it. But we still have a moderate supply of safe water.

And guess what jumps out of a closet to try and eat Art and me. A zombified person. I guess that is a word. If not, it is now. Somehow we made it out alive. Art might say it was his excellent aim and my honed self-defense skills. But I say it was all luck. Lady Luck seems to have smiled on us. I just hope she doesn’t ignore us next time.

Currently, we are en route to a supposed power plant run by ghouls, information courtesy of our ghoul friend. So far our friend has told the truth. I want to hope things take a turn for the better, but there is just something about him that makes me not want to trust him completely. I mean come on. He is like some kind of monster, right. But he seems genuine. Can a monster have a heart too, even if it is not beating?

The power plant should not be too much farther. The zombies don’t run around during the day so we can be relatively safer out in the open during the day. We should be able to rest during the day and travel at night. That is the plan so far, but we have already encountered three wandering zombies that attacked us. Luckily, nobody was killed. Thank you Lady Luck. However, our doctor received a nasty bite. I think we should keep an eye on Tobias. Just in case something happens to him. Normally I would say that it is ridiculous for someone to turn into a zombie. But everything seems to be out of one of those horror movies I have heard about from before the War.

I wished more films had survived. Most of the films did not make it. At least in our Vault some of the more popular films that did not survive were turned into plays. They were written and directed by people who had seen the originals and thought that they needed to be preserved in some way. Then they were passed down and kept for the future. My favorite is Galaxy Wars. Of the three I have seen the first two. I just can’t believe that Dark Saber is the uncle of Duke Starfighter…

War Never Changes

“War. War never changes.

The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower.

But war never changes.

In the 21st century, war was still waged over the resources that could be acquired. Only this time, the spoils of war were also its weapons: Petroleum and Uranium. For these resources, China would invade Alaska, the US would annex Canada, and the European Commonwealth would dissolve into quarreling, bickering nation-states, bent on controlling the last remaining resources on Earth….

The end of the world occurred pretty much as we had predicted. Too many humans, not enough space or resources to go around. The details are trivial and pointless, the reasons, as always, purely human ones….

In 2077, the earth was nearly wiped clean of human life. A great cleansing, an atomic spark struck by human hands, quickly raged out of control. Spears of nuclear fire rained from the skies. Continents were swallowed in flames and fell beneath the boiling oceans. Humanity was almost extinguished, their spirits becoming part of the background radiation that blanketed the earth….

A few were able to reach the relative safety of the large underground Vaults. Your family was part of that group that entered Vault (One-Twenty-Two). Imprisoned safely behind the large Vault door, under a mountain of stone, (four) generation(s have) lived without knowledge of the outside world….

A quiet darkness fell across the planet, lasting many years….When the great darkness passed, these vaults opened, and their inhabitants emerged to begin their lives again.” -Fallout 1 & 2 Introductions
