I'm in the early planning stages of a Fallout Hero (post-apocalyptic) campaign I plan to run after my current Traveller Hero campaign is over. I've got a handle on the details, and have a knowledge of the setting from playing Fallout 1, 2, and 3 extensively; I will run through New Vegas sometime in the next year, so that will also be under my belt. The wiki is a great resource for Fallout gaming, so I'm not too worried about those details. I've got most of the equipment worked out. What I'm trying to get some input on is specific areas or locations for the game. I live in New Jwrsey (as d
We're all familiar, through the Mad Max franchise and others, with the idea of a post-apocalyptic world where all or most of the planet is a scorching hot desert environment. How about a one-eighty on that concept: how about a winter wasteland?

The Fallout series, Mad Max in all of its gonzo absurd glory, Wasteland (which IMO, kind of splits the conceptual difference between those first two), the weirdness of Nier, and so on.

One of the types of games I wanted to run was a scrappy, survival-based game with lots
Found this Wiki through TV Tropes. It describes the world after Doomsday, September 19th, 1983.

The timeline is continually updated, and their now is our now, but in another timeline. I think. Seems very adaptable as a background for a PAH campaign.
