    Hey, everybody.

    I've been thinking, and I want to try to make my own game set in the original Fallout timeline. I was going to pitch some very rough ideas, get feedback, and hopefully find a bit of help.

    So.

    That being said, I get that my credibility is rocky at best given that I enjoyed the Bethesda titles as well as the originals. However, I want to pay tribute and get a neat idea out of my head and into the world.

    Here we Go.

    IDEAS:
    • The Good Guy - Resident of Vault 77, a Vault which was told about the experiments performed in the other vaults to gauge how the people would react. [Experiment that is triggered by experiments]. The staff of the Vault were quickly suppressed and executed by the civilians. After some time, the Vault's doors were opened, and it became a sort of trader city.
    • The Bad Guys - A group known as Death's Embrace. There are 4 superiors who brainwashed their followers into believing that the bombs were supposed to wipe out all life on Earth. Their holy mission is to finish the job, sparing no living thing. Vault 77 is alerted to their existence in a raid by some lower-level zealots. The superiors are named Kaine, Adolf, Tepes, and Mao.
    • Time Frame - 30-40 years post-NV

    Let me know what you think. Ideally, I'd like to build a game out of this, using the Interplay engine.

    I like it! I think that given the right knowhow of the Interplay engine it could be pretty damn nice. My question is aside from a trading city, what role does 77 take in the wasteland? Is their attacking of the leadership of Death’s Embrace a revenge thing? Or is it because they’re kind of “protectors of the wasteland”? If the latter, how will player karmic agency have an effect on how the rest of vault 77 treats them?

    Deaths embrace sounds more like a secondary cult villain than a main villain. Your villians need to be at least understood on an intellectual level but as is youve got just a cult of religious monsters
