Usage

{{Wikiportal/Featured article

Allistair Tenpenny.jpg
Allistair Tenpenny is the owner of Tenpenny Tower and the employer of a certain Mister Burke. If the player talks to Allistair they will find out that he commented to Mister Burke about how Megaton is an eyesore and this brings on Mister Burke's "quest" to find someone to blow up the atomic bomb at the town's center. He also is a bigot and won't consider ghouls to live with in the tower unless you convince the others with in the tower. He carries a sniper rifle which he uses to randomly shoot at things in the wastes from his balcony in what he calls "Wasteland Safari" not caring what he hits or kills.

Great War FoT.jpg
The Great War (not to be confused with World War I or World War III), started (and ended) in 2077 on October 23rd. It is not known who dropped the first bomb, but that hardly matters. It lasted a very brief amount of time, but was unbelievably destructive. More energy was released in the early moments of that war than all previous conflicts combined. The situation leading to the war included China invading Alaska, and the United States annexing Canada. The European Commonwealth dissolved and a world wide conflict followed when each country tried to gather what natural resources it could. This period was known as the Resource Wars.

Deathray.png
The death ray is a giant weapon attached to the alien mothership Zeta. Appearing to be the ship's primary offensive weapon, the Lone Wanderer uses it to fight against the support mothership in the quest This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough.... The death ray can also be fired at Earth. If done so, the fired ray will hit somewhere in Canada, creating a massive mushroom cloud observable from Zeta.
