So it finally happened. What the government and the news kept saying. A giant war, and bombs and missiles and stuff, and lots of people panicking, trying to get into Vault 76.
It was pretty crazy out there for a while, and I got separated from everyone. My friends, my family. But it's all right. I'll find them again, someday. And I know Christian and the others can handle themselves.
So for now, it's time to go exploring. West Virginia may be a little wilder than it used to be, but nobody can handle those country roads like me.
Behind the scenes
This note is based on a real person named Justin Cole who died in 2014 at the age of 14. One of his friends, Christian, petitioned Bethesda to add a reference to Justin in memory of his friend, who loved playing Fallout.
