Anybody is allowed to make suggestions and whatnot. This is just a hypothetical idea for a new game in the series. Please review my ideas! Thanks. Major thanks to Hardboiled Android, Atomic Postman, and Dayglow Drifter! FALLOUT COLORADO “War. War never changes. When the fires of war struck the US state of Colorado, the region was irrevocably changed. Much of the knowledge and technology humanity had invented was lost, and the state regressed into a primitive backwater for generations. As the ages went on, new nations rose, and would see the state...as their key to success. Caesar’s Legion, and the people of Boulder Dome would each place their stakes in the region. War is imminent. And war never changes.” Colorado in my setting is a wild and untamed region. The final great frontier of the Southwestern Wasteland. During the war, it was heavily bombed due to all the NORAD bases present within the state. Much of the region is made barren, with only a few dozen miles of “green spots” mostly in the central regions of the Wasteland. While Colorado remained a tribal backwater for nearly a century and a half, new factions are now beginning to encroach on the mountainous wasteland. Caesar’s Legion Caesar’s Legion would still be in the beginning phases of their expansion into the region. The Legion’s foothold in Colorado is limited to the small slave-catching outpost of Cortex, led by Centurion Cassius of Lukachukai. Caesar back in Flagstaff sees Colorado as his Legion’s next big conquest, and is beginning to send more and more legionnaires to Cortex. The Technocracy Based in Boulder Dome, the Technocracy is a faction led by the scientists in the settlement. They are extremely advanced and technologically sophisticated, especially when compared to the tribes and survivalist communities that surround them. They have surrounding communities of farmers provide them food in exchange for the protection of their combatron security forces. They’ve mostly been spreading to the eastern slopes, but recently have been trying to spread west to the mountain tribes. The Twin Mothers, V29 and Diana The Twin Mothers are similar to how they were going to be portrayed in Fallout Van Buren. They are a small, highly-cultured and primitive tribe descended from the inhabitants of Vault 29. They worship Diana, their computer goddess, but she has recently gone offline for some unknown reason. The Twin Mothers are pacifistic, and as such have been preyed upon by Raiders and Slavers, mostly the Legion. The Twin Lakes Tribe This is an original faction idea I had. They’d be a primitive tribe descended from a bunch of families of survivalists (5 to be exact- The Aguilars, Collins, Donners, Smiths, and Troys) They were originally from Denver; but migrated decades ago after the raider, slaver and especially dog attacks got to fierce. They’d be a small faction, but you the player would start out somewhere near them. They aren’t pacifists, but they are getting preyed upon by Legion Slavers. The Uncompahgre Tribe This Tribe would be an extremely violent, and war-like tribe, similar to that of the White Legs of Utah. Inhabiting a space near the Legion outpost of Cortex, the Uncompahgre’s Chief, a man named Otan, would be extremely interested in joining the Legion and would be tasked by the Centurion to help them collect slaves and whatnot. Cheyenne Temple Cheyenne Mountain Complex in this game would be a bombed out crater (either due to the battle of Vault 0 from Tactics, or the Great War itself, depending on whether or not that's canon). While most of the tribes near it see it as “taboo”, it is inhabited by Ghouls. About 30 or 40 of them, in the deepest levels of the destroyed base. They worship some sociopathic manipulative ghoul, who calls himself Leviticus. He has a cult, who plan on turning the entire region of people into ghouls, and exterminating the humans, as well as trying to find a way to create “born ghouls”. Buchanan’s Brigade There wouldn’t be any Enclave, but there would be a faction descended from them- Buchanan’s Guard. Led by Commander Adam Buchanan, they’re former Enclave members who have in the 20 or so years since its fall taken to an abandoned NORAD base. They’re small, only about 80 of them, but they’d be important- They’d relinquish the old ways of the Enclave and simply want to rebuild something. Anything civilized. They’d be mostly men though, so they’d be buying female slaves to try and grow their population, or capturing them themselves- No tribal being able to match their power. ^ Some of the users from before have suggested I replace these guys with a non-Enclave group. Perhaps just some sort of paramilitary faction or a community of survivalists that were particularly well-armed. If you agree, tell me and I’ll start brainstorming new ideas. Maybe Enclave is played out. Iron Lines The Iron Lines inhabit Circle Junction, and are one of the most advanced survivalist communities in the Colorado. Super Mutants Super Mutants would be limited in Colorado. Only migrants from the Mariposa batch back in Colorado (ie, former Unity members) would be present. I’d say there’d be no more than 10 Super mutants in the entirety of the region. They could be similar to the Enclave Remnants! Maybe there’s a quest to reunite them? - Creatures of Colorado Bighorners- Bighorner sheep would be the main livestock of the people of Colorado. Brahmin would be mainly limited to the Legion’s outpost of Cortex and environs, as well as a small herd of them owned by the Twin Lakes Tribe. Three Horners- These would be mutated goats with three horns. These would be the Coloradoans' answer to the Brahmin; they’d be useful as pack animals, unlike the Bighorners, as well as producing leather, meat, and milk. The Legion looks down upon these strange creatures. Denver Hounds- Having spread out from the city of Denver into neighboring regions, Denver hounds are a serious threat to human populations in the area. Packs of these feral dogs act almost like a hive mind, with great cohesion and deadly force. Deathclaws- Classic, good-ol’ Deathclaws. They’d like to inhabit the many mountain caves and canyons of Colorado, and would be like the apex predators of the region. Gars- Mutated Cougars, strengthened by the wild FEV. Except unlike humans, they are still fertile. And they’re mean.
