Fallout RP?

TyraWadman

Like with every game I get invested in, I kinda wanna write about it a lot or write some sort of fanfic but then I was like 'hey, why not see if anyone else wants to get into it?' since it seems most people like sci-fi elements. The problem? I'm not very well-versed in the series. I couldn't make those connections with all the lore and a lot of the ideas I come up with can be interesting/adventurous, but I don't think I'll be able to come up with ideas that involve the other factions (assuming they're still a thing in newer games) or just... things that suit the environment, really.

Might anyone be interested in collabing? It would definitely be public, SFW RP.

Must-Haves:

- One paragraph minimum (unless it's something odd/specific)
- Third person.
- Need to generate a lot of random prompts / encounters to inspire/inconvenience peeps
- Team to help manage/run things. X) Assuming it gets complicated.

Pondering:

- Stats (maybe even having to 'roll' moments, but since FAF doesn't have a dice option I dunno how well that would work)
- Separate thread would be created in order to host character pages, which would include basic stats (giving a general overview on their intended playstyle, but it's not set in stone) and background story, with the option of posting their character goal. That way if someone new wants to join, we can include little blurbs that give a TLDR of their current situation?
- Again, collabing. Maybe some of us would need to manage NPCs? Maybe make up a new map with new places? Iunno...
- It would be literate RP but at a casual pace. Ideally one post a day, but if for whatever reason you can't commit anymore, maybe make a post like 'Use me as Cannon Fodder' so we can kinda wrap things up versus pretending nothing had ever happened?
- Oh yea... Not sure how this thing will work if people wanna introduce furries. I was thinking of keeping the races and their common prejudices. I'm not against adding furry characters, but I also want it to make sense too, y'know? Like, not having brightly colored anthros traversing a wasteland?

I've been out of the RP game for a while now. Lemme know what y'all think!

Disclaimer: I've only played NV and even then I'm not even close to being done exploring. Level 20 something and I just arrived at the strip to search for the man who shot me. I have touched 3, but I got so tired/bored because it was literally me running away from mutants every two steps. Couldn't stay motivated.

I haven't played a Fallout game in several months, so I'm a bit rusty on the lore; I have played (mostly, excluding Brotherhood and Tactics) everything from Fallout 1 to 4. A bit of 76, but never really got invested in the lore. I'll give it a shot, though. Not too creative coming up with random events that interest people.

I will probably give this some more time/thought. I want to create things but I also want it to be uh... primarily 'independent'. Meaning I don't want ten people waiting for me to reply because they need to figure out how to navigate a quest. Hm...

I think I'm fleshing out some more ideas. Ones that could easily Incorporate furries and whatnot.

Canada would basically be rich with greenery and some unaltered wildlife. Mutant meese, bears and possibly geese just to make people mad.

The natives would basically be divided between beastlords (allies with the fur folk) and humans that aren't quite cool with them yet.

Other races would be limited to human, ghoul and races like synth and super mutant would be rare to find there because lack of machinery.

I don't intend to have it all be forest but that would be the origins/sysrting point for most furry types.

Racial traits and prejudices would be significant because if you wanted to play a hulking werewolf with a body posture reminiscent to a deathclaws, people are more likely to shoot first and ask questions later.

These are just some of the ideas I've been able to brainstorm. X) feedback is appreciated and I'm totally down with collaboration! I wanna kinda set the stage, give some guidance, but leave the direction/pace to the rpers. And of course plot out some quests of all genres.

Incorporating the effects of the US annexation of Canada would be interesting as well, especially since US troops didn't treat the locals very nice.

Stuff like scenery, propaganda, the more war-torn parts of Canada (even before the bombs).

Yes! I'm still reading up on that part to try and get the details right. XD
But I'll probably need some help cause imaginary politics makes my head hurt

I'd imagine after two hundred years most of what remains would mainly be propaganda and the remnants of military bases. Perhaps more within the more fortified areas like bunkers, and maybe some lore exposition through terminals and whatnot scattered around the cities and towns.

Oh, definitely! It's not all going to be forest.
I just wanna pick out some key places though, from the Canadian map. At least enough to reference them. XD
If I actually know something about the area, that'd be even easier for me. But I also think it'd be cool if other peeps could suggest stuffs.

I mostly just know names that are funky.
Like Mactaquac.
Or the 900 something stores and indoor rollercoasters in Alberta (that would likely be a paradise of sorts, or similar to what the strip/freeside is in New Vegas)
And the evolution of some monuments/landmarks would be nifty
Like turning the giant Mr.Peanut into some wasteland survivor peanut.

Especially with the whole 50s-60s culture, as well. I'm from the southern US and haven't step foot anywhere north, so locations and landmarks aren't gonna be my thing.

No worries about the Canadian trivia bit!
I'm definitely gonna try and implement the whole tensions with Canadians/Natives/Furries and the Americans that think Americans should own everything. To keep it short and sweet. XD

Fair enough, and yeah tensions between the different mutant species (at least sapient ones) could be interesting to explore; there's probably some hunter factions that could be added, maybe people who get paid to go out and kill such furry species
And likewise those who want to concile with the furries and build a better future.

Yupyup! I was planning to have Fiends be a thing since they're basically generic Bandits and do whatever. They would definitely have no issues with butchering anthro folk for food/money/furs! Propaganda will definitely tip the tides against them for a good while.

Fiends are pretty much just drugged up raiders, there could be a similar concept under a different name.

What exactly do you think could be a good starting location?
I've got a few ideas planned out for openings actually! Though, some of them would be restricted to race in some ways.
One would be a vault (human and synth only), there would be a few starting scenarios for furry folk (primarily in the forest though). Then of course, there's the option to start anywhere in between really, I'd just need to draw up a map to make it easier to visualize.

You have any ideas brewing? :D
