In the dusty and worn town of Colorado Springs a figure appeared from the distance and slowly moved to the town. As it moved closer it became clearer that it was Hauler, a large robot that was used by a Caravan Driver named Danny. Without a caravan in tow and an unconscious man draped over his shoulder, Hauler's arrival quickly caught the attention of many in Colorado Springs.

When the badly wounded man Hauler brought to town awoke, he told stories of a great beast in the wasteland that had attacked the caravan he was guarding and killed the others with him.

Such danger so close to town, the sheriff quickly put together a posse to head out and find this monster...


War...War Never Changes...

How many years has it been since the bombs fell and the world was wiped away and replaced with wasteland? Some say dozens, others say hundreds, but as the world burned away as did so much of what we knew, so much of the time we recorded and kept track of.

And what of civilization? The cities and towns replaced with shells of rubble and crumbling buildings. Hollows and ruins scavenged over for what little can be taken. Roughly bent and broken ceiling beams used now as little more than shelter from the radioactive and acidic rains.

And what of our animals and our crops? Dusty fields toiled upon endlessly that yield little in the way of food, and what food there is would be considered alien those came before. And our beasts of burdon now bizarre irradiated creatures that roam the desolate lands.

And what of our society? War never changes. What had once turned the world from a paradise to nuclear fire...that war still exists in fighting between raiders and villiages, towns against towns; and against each ideal and faction which believes it alone is the path to salvation for the world that remains. Neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, and brother against brother as our petty squabbles and territorial struggles continue, forever and ever.

And what of you? What you will make of yourself in this wasteland that has taken away the lands that used to be fertile, the waters that used to be refreshing, and the different people who used to be friends but are now raiders?

What will you be?


Fallout is a PBEM RPG that takes place in the setting of the same name.

Fallout will begin in Colorado Springs, but will take us to many different parts of the United States and even to other countries as our party of survivors and scavengers travel the wastes. The game will take place in 2170, putting it between Fallout and Fallout 2, and well before Fallout 3, New Vegas and Fallout 4. This will not change what we're used to in Fallout games, but will allow us to see the world before many of the well-known factions have been formed and the wasteland is much more wild and uncontrolled. With what little order the wasteland had gained from Fallout 2 to Fallout 4 will be gone and what little law and order we see in later games will have yet to be formed.
