What BoS division do you speculate is in Boston?

    I still don't think Bethesda should touch the Midwest Bros. And if they indeed are present in Boston, their iconic power armor is a must, and Bethesda, f*ck off from the design. leave it as it was, don't try to "improve" it, because in my honest and humble opinion, your designs are sh*t compared to originals.
    If I have to suffer their bastardization of Midwest BroS I want them to at least look cool and menacing as they were intended. Because I don't believe beth will give them justice in their writing.

    They won't. It's Bethesda.

    I would love to see the Midwestern BOS again, but not in Bethesda's hands. They were more interesting than Lyons' do-gooders and morons.

    The Brotherhood gaining control of a vast robot army would basically make their outward expansion an unstoppable inevitability.

    And for Beast Lords, the idea of psionics in Fallout isn't new, but it was always intended that it was a very rare occurrence to a degree of one in a million.

    An entire tribe of them also upsets the balance of power.

    I don't know... I don't mind so much know. Remember the psionics is limited to animal control. Nothing else.

    Still, it implies that psionics is something you can cultivate through some certain methodology instead of being a random mutation.

    It's not a bad idea for a particular villain, but an entire tribe?

    It's just a little too contrived.

    Make the tribe nomadic and smaller, meaning that it gathers members from other places and around America.

    And there we go!

    Fixed the issue without getting rid of a neat idea.

    Yeah, just kind of have the higher ranking members be the ones with the highest level of control with descending tiers of ability with the majority of the clan having very little if any psionic powers.

    Agreed. Maybe have the leaders fully have it and they use superstitious tribals as the main soldier.

    Ugh no, if we start introducing functional Psykers into the setting, shit will just turn into Xmen in no time, with pople demanding a Psyker protagonist ala Skyrim and such. Psykers worked as a show of what the multiple paths the FEV could lead humanity through, with the Psykers as a failed and doomed one, in fact the only creature with psionic abilities that could mantain any semblance of functionality was the Master himself and he was an amalgamation of minds and mutations. The fact that even the Hulk mutants has a critical weakness (being sterile, and thus a doomed species) touches more on the FEV, a weapon from the prewar days, not being the path to survival for humanity.

    Don't give Bethesda or the Bethfanboys ideas... they already ruined the Super Mutants and the Enclave...

    Isn't it basically all but guaranteed you become leader of the Minutemen because a Psyker said you should be?

    What's wrong with you guys? Can't you imagine the possibilities? Fighting the villain Skyrim-Style with radiation instead of shouts while the villain summons death claws out of thin air? It will be awesome! Just like magic ... I mean ... you know ... guys ... ? :look:

    But... magic?

    No seriously, we need something lore friendly, logical and original.

    Well, I dunno, aliens went from being a funny easter egg to a real thing with an actual dlc and everything. Bethesda does what it feels like.
