    We saw no babies there though. Also there wouldn't be enough children to maintain a stable gene pool and nobody there had the knowledge of how to raise a baby without killing it. Do you honestly think a few ten year olds living off fungus in a cave can raise a child?

    Little Lamplight could have been a cool place if it wasn't made up entirely of children and if it wasn't right next to the mutant vault. Of course someone at Bethesda had to go, "Wouldn't it be lulz if there was a town made up like, entirely of little kids? And all those little kids like to act like grown ups and swear a lot, that'll be even more lulz!!!1 You can't kill them though cause that would be bad."

    That's what I say, the question is not where do the kdis come from, but how do they even survive.

    Yeah, teen pregnancies could explain Lamplight's never ending supply of children but I honestly can't imagine anyone surviving infancy in that place. It's just a completely ridiculous location added merely for the "lulz", much like Megaton being built around a nuclear bomb even though it makes no goddamn sense.

    Maybe if they had sued a little of the Nursery in that Place, combining it with the Mutant factory. Having something like a AI that was in charge of keeping the experiments going, an AI that then learns fo the community of kids just outised of the Vault and starts takign care fo them, then when they get old she would convince them to turn into mutants, I don't know, I can think of better stories in 5 minutes.

    I'm pretty sure everyone there was prepubescent, the annoying brat who asks you to escort him to big-town looks about 14 at the most to me.

    You also have to consider that you, an eighteen year old is considered without question to be a "mungo" so the age you have to leave at is obviously several years below eighteen.

    So, yeah, even if you say that children could defend themselves and survive, that place still should not exist at all considering the zero percent chance of them reproducing.

    EDIT:
    On THAT note, how in the name of all that is holy is an eighteen year old who grew up in isolation from the real world surviving in the wasteland?!

    GIrls can get pregnant as young as 13, and Stinky, or however he is called ,is 17 when he is forced to leave.

    Twelve actually.

    Anyway, I checked the wiki, Sticky is sixteen, hmm, that's still only five years to have a child and to be honest, I find it unlikely that the parents would leave their child behind when they're only less than five years old.

    You say the gusy living in a "town" made out of eight cars as a wall and four houses would even care about leaving their kids alone?

    They are not aware that big town is a shit-hole.

    Furthermore, it's natural instinct to look after your child, granted, not all parents do but the odds are in favour of those that do.

    You can't even, 200 years after a nuclear apocalypse, find pre-war food since it would have been all be looted ages before. And even if you did it wouldn't be edible anymore. And yet commerce of pre-war food is one of the main part of the economy of the DC area....

    I think one of the kids mentions going out on search parties for supplies and hunting animals but since you find food in the ticket office directly outside the entrance they aren't doing a very good job.

    Here's a theory. Maybe they kill the children they don't like or consider a waste, cannibalize the parts they can eat, then throw the remains in the fungus pools where the fungus is fertilised. The fungus, as well as removing radiation and having healing properties, also stops the 'shakes' from eating human flesh.

    Another crackpot theory.
    If in the months before the attack people began stocking up on food that would last a long-time. This resulted in a surge of food production and distribution to major population areas (something radical like (a 500% increase). If there wasn't a nuclear war then the corporation would've still got a shedload of money and if there was they were screwed anyway.

    Lol I like how for making a bitchy little girl cry you get evil karma you bad boy you(sarcasm). With a bit of touch up little lamp light could be a possible situation(just not fallout 3's version) but in a world where retarded mutants can fire guns at people(seriously I'm surprised they can actually open a door let alone fire a gun and reload it) and can survive long turn I'm afraid little lamp light is the least of worries

    Wait, so they are born in Big Town, sent to Little Lamplight, and then sent back to Big Town when they grow up? What kind of sense does that make?

    Apparently, living in a cave next to a horde of ogres in the most irradiated area of the Capital Wasteland without proper protection is safer than Big Town.
