Anyone else feel there's just not enough information about the timeline, specifically about the Capital Wasteland and how we got from point the Lyons Brotherhood at the end of Broken Steel to Boone----er, I mean Elder Maxson 10 years later. Below is what I've gathered from the timeline, as it pertains to the Capital Wasteland: -2279: Elder Maxson, 12, killed two raiders and saved the squad escorting him. -2280: A Brotherhood of Steel recon team was sent to the commonwealth to gather technology, great success. Elder Maxson, 13, killed a large death claw, and gained the facial scar he has today -2281: MacCready, 16, leaves Little Lamplight Courier Six's adventures across the Mojave/West Coast. -2281-2287: MacCready "took an odd job here and there, but things were pretty hot with the Brotherhood of Steel running the show." MacCready marries Lucy and has a son named Duncan. Lucy dies to some feral ghouls, and MacCreedy runs with Duncan in his arms away. Duncan becomes sick with blue spots on MacCready's homestead/farm, and MacCready leaves vowing to find an antidote. -2282: Maxson, 15, kills the Supermutant Leader Sheppard, (presumably ending the Supermutant threat in the Capital Wasteland once and for all, although that's speculation on my part) -2283: Maxson, 16, reunited the Brotherhood and the Outcasts. -Maxson named Elder of the Brotherhood -Maxson is named elder of the Brotherhood by the West Coast chapters, who shouldn't be alive at this point. (I'm going to attribute this one as a lie/propaganda of the writer in this terminal entry) -2284: A second Brotherhood Recon Squad, Artimis, was sent to the Commonwealth and disappeared -2285: The Prydwen Completed 2286-2287: MacCready arrives in the Commonwealth. ...And that's it. Beyond Danse's memories of the wasteland which I'm omitting because spoilers. In general, the fate of the Capital Wasteland, not to mentioned any word of a veteran 30~ year old Lone Wanderer, is nonexistent. Do the Brotherhood have a police state going on? Were they pushed out by an angry populace? What about growing settlements like Megaton, a potentially destroyed Rivet City, or the ever-growing Democracy of Daisy? Not a mention of them? Ugh. One thing I love about time skips is seeing how things have changed, for better or worse. Watching the NCR grow from the small town of Shady Sands into a young nation state, and eventually a mighty Republic was kind of awesome for me, and then learning about the sheer amount of stuff that has changed in the 80 and 40 year interims. Lastly, what do you think is the canon ending? After replaying through the storyline a second time recently, I'm tempted to say a Railroad ending + a rebuilt Minutemen soon after, with both the Castle and it's artillery recovered. Under those conditions, by 2297 much of the Commonwealth could have finally rebuilt-----hell, renewed attempts at forming the CPG would be underway by the 2307. The Brotherhood get's it's teeth kicked in, for once, and any surviving force down in the Capital Wasteland might learn from where Maxson's chapter failed(aka lording over the Commonwealth in your airship, threatening farmers, and calling for assassinations of completely compliant and friendly scientists like Virgil) I dunno, did anyone else notice there wasn't a lot of exposition about the 10 year gap between the two games? What do you think is the best/canon ending for Fallout 4?
