Nahant is a town and a part of the Commonwealth in 2287.


Nahant was always a small coastal town. English Puritans settled the lands in the 1630s, and it slowly became a tourist destination in the 19th century. Sometime after the divergence, the Nahant Oceanological Society was founded, and the illustrious Croup family erected a mansion on the northern cliffs.


Nahant is located on a small peninsula to the northeast of the Commonwealth, surrounded by ocean with only one major line of entry, a thin land bridge from the northwest of the landmass.

Immediately after entering there is a Red Rocket Station and a small street containing the Nahant Sheriff's Department. Part of a large port in the southwest, Nahant Wharf, had been converted into Libertalia by remnants of the Commonwealth Minutemen but they eventually took to being a group of raiders.

The rest of Nahant consists of an old upper-class residential neighborhood, featuring Nahant Chapel, Nahant Oceanological Society, Nahant Bar and Restaurant and a potential settlement, Croup Manor.

Notable lootEdit
