"City of Lost Angels"
The city of Los Angeles must have been the largest in the world before the War. The L.A. Boneyard stretched forever, the skeletons of buildings lying under the hot sun. Not even the wind entered this dead city.Fallout 2 manual

Boneyard, Angels Boneyard, or Angel's Boneyard is both the name of a city built in the remains of Los Angeles and state within the New California Republic.[1][2][3]


The Boneyard was settled after the war by vault inhabitants.[4][5] Adytum is an independent city, fenced in to the south. Although the Gun Runners eventually staked out a presence in the city, they were not from there originally.[4] The city became one of the states of the New California Republic, their money later diverted to support the Mojave campaign.[6][7]

The Republic Reserve is listed on NCR currency alongside the city's name.[8] The Follower's Angel's Boneyard Medical University is also located here.[9]


The Boneyard can be found one square west and 17 squares south of Vault 13. It is divided into five sections.
