    A while back, I was in this discord chat where we'd post terrible Fallout faction ideas for fun, and then we'd discuss them. And then we'd add extra ideas to them, and stuff. It was fun, there were a lot of fun terrible factions and factions that started off terrible but got built up into good ones.

    This week's theme is: Tribals!

    How about a tribe that makes cheese. They trade cheese for everything they need, therefore cheesing the post-apocalyptic meta.

    How much cheese for a Plasma Rifle? ;)

    It really depends on the cheese, and the person with the plasma rifle. The trick of the thing is to start them off with a good intro cheese like cheddar, then they work their way up to the more eccentric, acquired tastes, until they reach brie. Then it's all over.

    But no one else knows how to make cheese. People can't risk the world losing fromage a second time.

    A vampire comes to the Mojave and is so disgusted at the incompetence and corruption they see, they decide to take over and rule humans openly because every leader they see is is an asshole and even a vampire can't run Vegas worse. It's like, you fuckers have had 200 years to rebuild and it all amounts to THIS?! Fucking idiots.....

    Vampires in the Mojave? Wouldn't they prefer a place with more shade? Deserts seem like the bane of a vampire.

    Sam's Snowflakes. A tribe of gender non-conformist puritanal religious cultists who believe the use of politically incorrect language should be punishable by death. They wear sex-neutral burlap sacks and object to the use of all pronouns in the English language. Every night they gather inside designated safe spaces and pray that the world will someday learn to accomodate their needs.

    There was that whole Religious faction in WL2 that were gonna execute a guy for eating shell fish.

    Before FO4 was released I always thought there should've been an all male faction that went around the wasteland giving free Circumcisions to the uncircumcised. Agreeing would give you a permanent -1 to "Endurance." Not a agreeing, you'll have to fight them off. They carry special Sickles, chisels, Tool (long nose pliers) and rocks in their inventory

    If you are a woman, they will try to enslave you

    They can call themselves 'The Old Testament' or something.
    If you're carrying one of those Ankh necklaces from the Renewal faction in FO2 they will turn hostile automatically.

    A faction that sells robots. But they are defective and you have to buy "upgrades" to make the robots work a bit better (nevermind that you can find people who make free upgrades for the robots that are better).
    Their sales pitch is "It just works!". :falloutonline:

    So we're going to Blade rules, or is that how it was in Bram Stoker's?

    Well that got political right quick. The funny thing is that there actually isn't a way to make the counterpart as hyperbolic as this was, because they're already too ridiculous to be exaggerated.

    Let me guess the robot sellers come in and say 'alright look, you're doing good work and you should be compensated paid for it. What do you say we sell your upgrades and give you a slice of the pie?' Which only results in a slew of half assed bullshit upgrades, most of which are actually plagiarized from people who provide upgrades for free.

    Vampires could daywalk no problem in Dracula, just most of their powers don't work in the day.

    Le Memesters. A tribe of screaming 12 year olds wearing headsets and fedoras who constantly call you a faggot for hardscoping and challenge you to 1v1s. Of course none of them can be killed because we're using Todd Howard rules. Their agricultural society consists of harvesting dew from the local mountains as well as growing corn to produce nacho cheese flavored chips.

    I did a comedy tabletop RPG once, where there was this tribe which worshipped the Michelin bibendum, "for he is the one making us move fast". Its high priests dressed like the bibendum, and its followers used car tires in every situation possible : clothing, heating, building, worshipping etc. It was a joke tribe in a mindless tabletop RPG, but one I could totally imagine in a bad Fallout.

    A bunch of dudes with a military history playing paladins of the wasteland. They could have cheesy lines like "Steel be with you!" and shit like that.
    Imagine the cringe.
