His Majesty Henry VIII
Set in 2277, Fallout 3: Vaults and Vagabonds, is heavily inspired by the game and to a lesser degree the lore of Fallout 3. The most notable difference between this particular installment in the ongoing Fallout Series and this RP is that James and his son, the boy that otherwise in time becomes both the Lone Wanderer and the protagonist of Fallout 3 the player controls, do not gain entry to Vault 101. All characters, within the original party anyway, will originate from Vault 101 and have grown up together within the aforementioned fallout shelter. While this as said will be significantly based upon Fallout 3, it shouldn't be confused as a copy of it. NPCs, quests, towns, everything, absolutely everything, can and often is subject to change, however minor or major it may end up being.
Another matter of note is this: characters are not invincible. The Capital Wasteland is as advertised, a chaotic, lawless, place, the pinnacle of prewar American glory brought to a horrifying low that would make the founding fathers turn in their graves. Those caught unprepared will suddenly, and all-too-likely, violently, die. Characters can go on to accomplish similar or perhaps even identical feats as the Lone Wanderer did and much more, from joining existent factions to making their own, but not nearly as easily. Each gunshot blasted at your character can potentially kill, so make sure to act accordingly. Finally, player versus player combat is allowed and encouraged. There will be no overreaching plot everyone must participate in, nor a group after the original characters open the vault door everyone has to travel with. Do whatever you want to do, make your own story, on your own terms.
The character application for this roleplay will be provided below so interested parties may get a head start on creating their characters. Please PM them to me when they are completed for review. It was created specifically to be completable within a matter of minutes, so it would be appreciated if they're completed within a timely manner. Additional details may be added to the sheets so long as they don't noticably impact how long it takes to complete them. All characters will be children, teens, and then reach adulthood, together, so don't add an age yet.
