    Lizzy has just been revictimized by being removed from this mod I hadn't ever heard of.

    This mod is officially shite then. To alter their own content to be less edgy and offensive... What are they, some giant studio who needs to appease the Marketing and PR teams? Do they have a board of directors filled with greysuits ready to scold them? Are they scared that their massive multimillion project is going to be targeted by controversy and negative press? What a bunch of bellends.

    Also: Obligatory dissing on the brits for still having a monarchy in the 21st century.

    Also: Down with monarchism and death to the royal family. Romanov treatment for them all!

    The ordinary British people scrape bark from the trees to eat. They scavenge on tips for used condoms to wash and re-sell.
    Living in skips/dumpsters is seen as a step up from living in a box.

    Even the songs in this ' mod ' are woeful. A ditty written about some journey to Merseyside, pfffttt, wtf goes there. It is an abomination a place with 0 respect for authority and pomp and circumcision.

    Better to die as a Prince than live as a Pheasant they shouted as the glorious bolsheviks sent them to Helsinki.

    If you're old enough to become head of a tyrannical state via inheritance, you're old enough to get executed in the revolution. The life of a blue-blooded child is but an insignificant price to pay for freedom.

    Meh, she wasn't a real queen, anyway. America has our rich turds living by siphoning public funds, too. Doesn't matter if she's alive or dead, and I don't care if she makes it into some mod, either.

    Any blood relative, possibly even those feuding with her; in her case any patriot. Anyone with common decency, and/or compassion for the bereaved, the deceased, both, or any deceased—just on general principle. shrug.gif

    Why not just make a fictional queen in her stead? Fuckin' New Vegas had a JFK parody that you could actually blow the brains out of yourself.

    Well, I assume he wasn't old enough to be the real JFK anyway, but yeah, Fallout has always had its own version of the past. Actually seems a bit weird to use real people, now that you mention it.

    I don't necessarily find it strange that they were gonna use the real Queen Elizabeth as Fallout has used and/or namedropped real world historical figures before, namely presidents, what I do find strange is why they'd use Elizabeth and not William or even George or even better, just create a new "Royal" character. In a post-apocalypse like Fallout literally anyone can just claim to be from the Royal bloodline, can't necessarily disprove them. As a matter of fact, a random guy or girl claiming to be Royalty in order to seize the riches and I guess power of the throne is actually more interesting to me than having the actual Queen (or King) be a ghoul that survived. It's like Edward LARPing as Caesar to subjugate stupid tribals.

    Another thing is why would they have expected Queen Elizabeth to survive to 2077 anyway lmao, she died at like almost 100. It would have been dumb to me, she would have needed to be ghoulified way before the war in order to survive that long. I don't even expect this new cunt Charles to live to 2077. An opportunist ghoul seems much better if you're gonna have a King/Queen in the post-apocalypse.

    I assumed it was a joke about her living a long time. And actually, if she's dead, the joke lost its relevance, which is a good reason to remove it.

    Fallout Ghoul-dom no? I mean... ignoring that they are setting it outside of Bakersfield/Necropolis, they would presumably retain the ghouls from the IP.

    The offense is the proximity to the funeral.
