We are creating the ultimate guide to the Fallout series, and you can help!

Introduction
Fallout is a franchise of post-apocalyptic computer role-playing games created by Interplay Entertainment. Originally envisioned as a sequel to Wasteland using Steve Jackson's GURPS, Fallout eventually matured into something entirely its own: A mature post-nuclear setting with a retro-futuristic aesthetic, powered by the home-brewed SPECIAL system. Its unique visual identity draws on countless sources, from 1930s Art Deco, through 1950s Americana, to 80s and 90s classics like Mad Max or The City of Lost Children.

The series encompasses six role-playing titles in the series (Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76) and several spin-offs, including a squad-based tactical combat game (Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel), an action RPG dungeon-crawler for PlayStation 2 and Xbox (Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel), a vault simulation game (Fallout Shelter), and several tabletop games (Fallout: The Board Game, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Roleplaying Game, and the discontinued Fallout Warfare).

Doctor Madison Li is a scientist working on food conditioning experiments in Rivet City, together with Janice Kaplinski and Anna Holt. She used to be part of the group of scientists that worked with James on Project Purity before the birth of the Lone Wanderer. Despite James' renewed efforts she remains skeptical of the project. Dr. Li is the first distinct face is seen during the player character's birth scene. The player is sent to Dr. Li by Three Dog after completing Galaxy News Radio (or talking his way out of it), beginning Scientific Pursuits. Dr. Li will ask the player not to follow James to the old lab (Jefferson Memorial). Going to the Jefferson Memorial will continue the main quest and story line.
