Introduction
Fallout is a franchise of post-apocalyptic role-playing games created by Interplay Entertainment, subsequently purchased by Bethesda Softworks, which has owned the franchise since 2007. The first cohort of titles were released under the Interplay banner, including Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. After acquiring the franchise, Bethesda shifted the series to a 3D graphics and real-time combat style entirely, replacing the 2D isometric graphics and turn-based combat of some previous installments. Over the next 15 years to the current day, Bethesda has published four main titles including Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76.

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 originally 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 also encompasses several spin-offs from the main role playing titles, including award-winning simulation game Fallout Shelter and several tabletop games including Fallout: The Board Game, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Roleplaying Game. In July 2020, it was confirmed that Amazon Studios had licensed the rights to a television series adaptation of the games. Kilter Films, in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks, will lead development.

Newreno 1.jpg
New Reno is a large city in Fallout 2, known for its casinos such as the Shark Club and the Desperado. It is home to, among many other things, the Golden Globes studio, the Jungle Gym, prizefighter ring, and the Cat's Paw brothel. There is also a substantial weapons outfit called New Reno Arms. The town is currently run by four different families, the Mordinos, the Bishops, the Wrights, and the Salvatores, all of which are willing to make the Chosen One a Made Man in exchange for a little help. Reno was spared the atomic fire of the Great War, but with the destruction of the rest of the United States, law and order broke down as mobster families ascended to power. To this day, New Reno has no official government or police force. However, aside from their internecine conflicts, the families generally keep order and make the city safe for tourists from the wastes, sending any troublemakers who disrupt the tourist trade to Golgotha, a burial site near New Reno. The tourists are glad to partake of the gambling, prostitution and drugs (particularly Jet) offered by the city's mobsters.

[edit]Did you know...

... that Harold is not a ghoul but a special kind of FEV mutant?

... that some denizens of Nashville left the city to spread the "guitar gospel"?

... that Robert House remained unconscious and cryogenically frozen for 61 years?

... that Jet has nearly no effect on ghouls?

... that Jennie Brown, the leader of the Retreat, is originally from Georgia?

... that the vault doors on the West Coast were the Seal-N-Safe #343 model?

... that Vault 94 is the source of the unique mutated flora in the Mire?
