    I would like to see the Pacific Northwest. There wouldn't be any of the known factions from the other games, with the possible exception of the Followers and some Enclave that survived the oil rig and their kids. Other than that, it would be a blank slate. All new factions would have to be created to fill the void. I'm imagining the other groups being too small to be big players in the region. So no massive Enclave army, I was thinking a few outposts or a city state built on top of a control Vault.

    Middle of nowhere. Seriously, the Fallout tabletop game I ran in college was set in North Dakota.

    What's interesting to me in a Fallout setting is not "what the bombs have left" but "what people have built after the bombs." I know the Beth fanthings will argue that Fallout needs recognizable landmarks (they do this a lot while complaining about their lack in NV, since they must have just not been paying attention) but it doesn't really. The places in the Fallout world that should be the most interesting are the places nobody really had any reason to bomb since there wasn't infrastructure there, so they'd be a reasonable place to take refuge from the radiation and rebuild.

    So I'd like to play a Fallout game set in the Everglades, in and around the Great Lakes, in Glacier or Voyageurs National Park, etc. I think "seeing what people built" would be more fun than ticking down the list of big pre-war cities. I mean, there's no reason that New York City, for example, wouldn't just be a smoking crater.

    Detroit is a place that i have long believed would be a great Fallout location. Of course im biased becuase i live here, but there are sooooooooo many ways in which this locale could be used. First of all I'd have to say there are a lot of misconceptions about Detriot as it is today. Sure there are some places here that are already Fallout-esqe but downtown is an exciting and complicated place. The buildings, the streets, and especially the bridges/ highway overpasses. There is a lot of beauty in the architecture and many of the local people are not crazy, murderers, gang bangers, and/or drug addicts! (I swear)

    Not to mention the Detriot metro area to which most outsiders refer to as Detriot. Grosse Point, a very wealthy suburb on the shores of st clair shores, rochester hills, i could go on. The area is one of the most diverse in the entire state. With Canada being across the river it would be very likely to travel there. Also the river itself leads to Lake St Clair which could be a real treat to explore, and at 15 miles across with canada on the other side there are many possibilities. Personally I'd like to see what the islands and/or lighthouses near the channel would be like. The potential for fresh water life would be interesting too seeing as there are no crabs in this particular lake mirelurks wouldn't exsist. The largest fish in the lake are muskies and they are pretty terrifying before you add some sort of fucked up mutation.

    I truly hope that one day i can roam the Motor City wasteland.:nod:

    Nanjing. It's a location similar to HK but have been occupied by American forces during the great war. You could get some american gadgets and crap like vaults and it wouldn't be all that weird to find these similar elements, and it'd be interesting to see 50s-projected hypernationalistic and repressive China, falling apart like the US during the war, having contact with the US before being destroyed with nukes. You'd get potentially very different factions and different cultural progression, with some pre war lore about China too. Cold War America is fun because most people know it already, but Cold War China would be new and intersting.

    A 50s progression of Detroit would also be awesome!

    I actually think New York could work really well.

    "But wait!" I can hear you saying. "Surely it will be an irradiated pit?" Precisely.

    New York gets bombed to absolute smithereens- large swathes of Manhattan Island are underwater, while the rest is literally a glowing crater, only not flooding thanks to the walls raised up by the explosions, and the wreckage of skyscrapers. But the pit is not empty- it is inhabited by utterly alien life forms. Mainly massive descendants of radioteophic fungi, roaches, sewer gators, rats, and others. All are completely and utterly mutated beyond what they once were, creating a totally alien ecosystem right here on earth. And, crawling out of the rubble, comes hundreds of ghouls. In the radiation filled zone, they find themselves in a veritable paradise.

    time goes on. A ghoul city state has emerged, based around the old world values of Democracy, and rule of law... With a twist. It only applies to ghouls. Initially, human populations which survived in endless sewers, metros and vaults attempted to wage war on the ghouls. But they lost- badly. They were enslaved, made to do work for the ghouls, with children being indoctrinated and ghoulified.

    this practice has spread beyond subterranean human farms, with slaves being captured from the outer boroughs. The Lyons BoS, which has devolved into a cult, but this time honoring the memory of Lyons himself as a messiah believing that they must spread His memory as well as the sacrifice and resurrection of the Wanderer to the whole world, has formed a reluctant deal with the ghoulies who provide massive quantities of steel from fallen sky scrapers (and the melted puddles thereof). Meanwhile, a charismatic warlord attempts to rally the Burroughs against the ghouls, and commit a mass genocide.

    I've been fantasizing about a Fallout game in Seattle for years now. I was thinking before the bombs dropped, Seattle's International district aka China town could have been turned into a Chinese internment camp for Chinese Americans similar to what we did to the Japanese in WW2. It would have a great big electric fence surrounding the entire part of town with guard towers and everything. The people in the camp would have survived the war and turned the place into a settlement called New Shanghai. Then some of the Shi from San Francisco could have relocated there sometime after the events of Fallout 2 with their Virtiberd they made from the schematics they got from the Chosen One. I was also thinking that with the ever growing NCR down south, a lot of powder gangers, raiders, slavers and other criminals would migrate north to escape the NCR and would form new raider gangs around Seattle. A new faction called The Washington Highway Patrol, (or something like that) which is basically a really large armed militia dedicated to keeping Caravan routes safe would be battling these new raider groups. Also Goris the talking deathclaw would be in the game. He migrated north after Fallout 2 and came in contact with a group of tribals who think he's a god and worship him because he can talk.

    I'd like to see a spin-off in another country. Preferably a more periferic country, like my own, Argentina, but any would do.
    Not only just to satisfy my own curiosity as to what the rest of the world became, but because it would force the makers to be creative and make new factions, and would cripple them from being able to break canon. Such a spin off could actually be made not-horribly by Beth.

    I'd love to see it set in France, it has many reactors, a rich history and a decent military. Also I feel some of the nastier aspects of Pre-war America; the jingoism, food riots, annexation of neighboring territory could all be applied to France pretty easily. The juxtaposition between the idyllic ruins of castles and churches mixed with the Pre-resource war military-industrial facilitates would be very cool indeed.

    I would love to see a Fallout game take place in E.P.C.O.T. which means Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow


    Walter Disney's original plans for EPCOT was to create a large prosperous utopia, it's sole purpose was to test and showcase new technologies before being released to the American public. The most interesting thing is that the city was planned to be built under a giant controlled Bio dome.

    Sadly Walter died before its creation, and his "Imagineers" redesigned it into the big ball you see today. But... What if Walter didn't die before its creation in the Fallout universe? And what if this community survived after the war?


    • If the malfunctioned G.E.C.K. in Florida is canon, it would create some interesting geography, like jungles filled to the brim with dangerous plants. Also Mutated wildlife the PC can encounter, like giant crocodiles or wild chimpanzees!
    • A new faction, EPCOT. Due to their giant glass dome controlling the environment within, the city is protected from being Overtaken. I would fancy that this would be one of their conflicts, stopping the jungle overtaking their community.
    • The U.S.S.A. (United States Space Administration) Would also be interesting, there could be possible evidence of Enclave plans to go to space. Their could be new fictional Pre-war space faring companies like SpaceX introduced into the lore. And last but not least Cape Canaveral.

    This is why I would love to see a Fallout game take place in EPCOT Florida.
