* *The South*, particularly New Orleans: The bayou is infested with horribly mutated gators and just barely settled by mutfruit planter nobility, and fought over by such factions as "The Code" (trying to rebuild society, led by the Quarter-Master who lives in Napoleon House), the River Barons (raiders who use a PlayingCardMotif), and Saturday's Children (voodoo tribals).
* *The Rocky Mountains*, likely centered on Denver. Imagine getting across swathes of radioactive snowstorms via a system of ancient ski lift gondolas.

** Considering that, if this is true, the real Vault Boy [[BrokenPedestal would have to be complicit in the unethical social programs]] that went on in the Vaults... why not?

It's a world where the post-atomic horror never ended!




to:

* Of course, in order for this to be true, something must have happened to Zefram Cochrane, whose invention of the warp drive came a decade before ''Fallout's'' Great War. Perhaps he was unable to complete his work due to the components he needed not being invented. Or perhaps he was killed in the Resource Wars. As an alternate theory he lived [[RichardNixonTheUsedCarSalesman an entirely different life]]- perhaps he's ''still'' alive, as a ghoul or something.

[[WMG:''Fallout'' is a parallel universe to ''StarTrek'']]
This ties heavily into the two previous posts (i.e., alien quarantine and alien involvement in nuclear war). Representatives of the Federation, getting wind that humanity was planning to leave its ravaged planet for the stars, and knowing of their capacity for savagery, used some means to provoke Earth's superpowers into nuclear war, instead of making first contact.




to:

* Indeed, Rapture may have been inspired by (or the inspiration for) the Vault Project. Maybe Ryan once knew House.

*Going along with this, there was no technological divergence either. Instead, there was a movement in the pre-war world to create technology that is resistant to explosions and radiation, resulting in bulkier and lower-tech but much hardier and long lasting machines. However, it's difficult to find a reason why they'd be so prevalent in the general population since it's unlikely that most people would be willing to downgrade their technological experience.

[[WMG: A huge percentage of the Wasteland's problems can be attributed to Jet's origins.]]
Myron states that he was able to make Brahmin manure into amphetamines because pre-War biotech companies fed defective protein extracts to their cattle. That makes sense from both the CorruptCorporateExecutive front, but why would there still be amphetamines in mutant cow shit almost a century after the Apocalypse? ''Because it infected them with a prion disease'' - feeding the less-valuable parts of livestock to other was rather common... until [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bovine_spongiform_encephalopathy Bovine spongiform encephalophy]] was discovered. The protein extract just creates amphetamines instead of eating holes in people's brains, but when people eat Brahmin, they're likely to get infected themselves, and what do you think having a steady amount of amphetamines in your system 24/7 would do to your ''temper?'' Everyone in the wasteland is rather trigger-happy, but even the worst parts of Eastern Europe aren't filled with human tanneries and people screaming about bleeders. Because they don't have prion diseases making amphetamines part of their biochemistry.

* While this likely will never be confirmed, there is basis for it in-universe as cyberdogs are notoriously long-lived. Plus, according to Old World Blues, the New Vegas Clinic and certain doctors in Fallout 2, it's possible to create cybernetic enhancements that aren't immediately obvious. As for the theory on superdogs, that's hard canon due to Rex of New Vegas. He's a pre-war cyberdog created for a police K9 unit, and except for curable neural degradation he's in prime fighting condition 200 years later. Plus, Dogmeat in Fallout 1 canon dies after smashing into a disintegration wall only to assist his master's grandson in the next game. While it's intended as an Easter egg, I headcanon it on the basis that there's already a sh*tload of actual magic elsewhere. -woggs123

* To add more fuel to this, beating Old World Blues with Roxie alive and the Cyberdog Facility operational results in the facility manufacturing packs of police dogs who begin protecting and policing towns across the wasteland.

[[WMG: The next installment of the Fallout series will be set in post-apocalyptic Boston.]]
The player's character will be an android constructed by the scientists set up inside MIT, as referenced by Dr. Zimmer in Fallout 3's Rivet City.
* Zig-zagged. That rumor about Boston was indeed an accurate leak, and the MIT remnants are the BigBad in every main quest path except the one in which you join them. However the main character is a pre-war HumanPopsicle [[spoiler: whose son is the genetic base for every advanced android]]

[[WMG: There has only ever been one Dogmeat - He's immortal!]]
I have no proof for this theory; I just think it would be interesting if Dogmeat was biologically immortal. It's not unreasonable that someone tinkered on making "super dogs" before 77 for use in warfare, and Dogmeat could very well be a succesful case of this. He seems like he's unreasonably smart for a dog, tough as hell and very dangerous, even for a large shaeffer. This could be chalked up to GameplayAndStorySegregation, but it's a possibility.

Now, let's add a layer... Dogmeat seems to be very, VERY fond of people in blue Vault suits, doesn't he? Could he have been low-key programmed for loyalty towards american citizens, and so is only truly loyal towards people irrevocably American? Or maybe Dogmeat is simply smart or perceptive enough to know a hero when he sees one? Mama Murphy from Fallout 4 mentions that Dogmeat has a mind of his own, and that he is fiercely independent. She also thinks that it isn't a coincidence that Dogmeat chooses to go with the player in Fallout 4; supporting the theory that Dogmeat knows more than any normal dog would about the world he inhabits!
