Dick Richardson lived almost 200 years after the war. The Enclave didn't realy do much before, they mostly weathered out the situation as they assumed that nothing survived. Fallout 2 and onward made it clear that the Enclave post war saw itself as the continuation of the US government. Yes, they were a sort of shadow government, as obviously the US government was not known as "Enclave" to anyone. It's nice that MODUS talks about it that way, but that's Fallout 76 information and the whole thread is about how Fallout 76's information sucks. wat He deserted and contacted the Army, but didn't get any response. Then he ordered the surrounding families to be brought into the interior of the base. It's not like he called out to them to travel the continent. Oh, ok. Again, he betrayed the government before it died. He explicitly says so. I'd disagree. While many of Fallout 2's retcons are passable due to it being still one of the lore-founding games of the series, retcons are rarely a good thing. And Fallout 2 is barely a better game than Fallout 1, only the RP makes it slightly better. Nothing in Fallout 1 and 2 mentions a Codex. It was added in Fallout 3, when the BoS went full paladins of the wasteland. That being said, the Codex doesn't really sound like "saving the world", it actually sounds much more like "save ourselves". "Give way your suspicions to the wisdom of thine Elder. Where he shows trust, so shall you." - Sounds like a faggy way of saying "shut up and do what I tell you". "Shield yourself from those not bound to you by steel, for they are the blind. Aid them when you can, but lose not sight of yourself." - Fuck the wastelanders. Don't dick them around and help them when you can, but don't waste too many bullets. "Fear those who do not pledge to the Brotherhood for though their eyes may be opened through service, they are now blind." - God, can't even say anything about this. I completely forgot how absolutely horrendous Fallout 3 was. I hate you, Phipps. You made me remember the torrent of excrement that was Fallout 3's writing.
