    Okay, so, I realize this may not get that many responses. Maybe a few views here and there; it's a lot less favorable than things like'Supernatural', 'Heroes', or 'Stranger Things' It just doesn't have that kind of cult following. But, there are people who enjoy the series, enjoy the backstory and the antics as well as the grim spectacle of a post-apocalypse. I won't get into details here, this thread is just to see who is interested--committed--and capable of making a Fallout story.

    It's certainly a 'possibility'. A guy or gal that's called Black Lamb Pm'ed me first asking about it, and they know their stuff. So they kind of take seniority in terms of development. But, that being said we could probably work you in, in some capacity. But since you don't know enough, I'll tell you right now it'll be hard to grant you a role that can change the landscape of the storyline, simply because you don't know enough about the in-game, etc to be a core player.

    What I could do is give you small parts to play, and in-between posts fill you in on what's happened from Fallout 3, New Vegas, and Fallout 4 as well as the history of why things are, they are. Because Black Lamb--and I'll get to the actual premise in a moment--wants to make it like the games where you have choices and you have consequences. It's not a linear story where the good guys fight the bad guys and save the day.

    Here is my premise:

    But he added the notion that hey, what if our characters JOINED the Enclave remnants? And I honestly don't see an issue with that unless you're a ghoul or a super mutant. They're extremists; radicals that want to purge the radiation infested areas and set out anew to reclaim the American Continent. But the reason why I don't see an issue with it otherwise is that; choice was always a big factor in the Fallout series. Barring F4 which gave you little in the way of choice. In F3 you could do all kinds of actions revolving around the Water Purifier; you could use it to kill off all irradiated life, or give clean drink water to all; in New Vegas, it was all about control of the Hoover Dam you could side with the NCR, Caser's Legion, or take an army of securitrons and make it your own (And throw someone off the dam, which I always found funny.)

    But in these games, it's about choice and the consequences of those choices. It may not be immediate, it could take you the entire game to figure out "Oh, well, shouldn't have done that". If that makes sense.

    But I don't see any harm in making this a multiplayer RP, and with a bit of effort and knowledge your character could become a valued member of the group and you having gained an appreciation for the legacy of the game Fallout that a lot of fans, myself included, loved about it.

    Well no matter the role, it really does sound interesting, may even play fallout again when I can afford them XD Otherwise I can just watch LP's on YouTube to get the gist. But as you said if I take on small roles (NPCs?) and keep up, I will learn about it for future RPs or even to be a bigger role later on in the RP :) I'm a quick learner too

    Yeah; and that's the thing about fandom RP's. You have to know the source material otherwise you're just gonna get in over your head and be so confused. I mean who are these characters? What is their significance? Etc. These people have significance they have an impact in this world. And you have to take that into account.

    Yeah, I get that. And a lot of my friends have been wanting me to play Fallout and I never took interest in it till now. Anyways I'm just guessing here but I do have some time to learn about it all before the RP starts and if I take on a small role I can even learn between replies :)
