The '''[[Necropolis]]''', a town built upon the charred remains of [[Wikipedia:Bakersfield|Bakersfield]], is the grim aftermath of '''Vault 12'''; it is best described by [[Killian Darkwater]]: ''"The climate ain't good, rain or shine."''

This [[Wikipedia:Greek|Greek]] word meaning "''City of the Dead''" refers to this strangely silent ghost town. Most of the buildings are intact, but travelers report that no one seems to live there, and people who arrive to settle it either end up with radiation sickness or simply disappear. The truth of the matter involves a small population of [[ghoul]]s beneath the city's streets.
The true purpose of that [[vault]] was to keep the doors open regardless of the conditions, which spelled disaster to anyone attempting to seek relief from the radiated aftermath of [[the Great War]]. The residents of the Necropolis were [[ghouls]], individuals ravaged by the effects of radiation after the Great War. To most of post-War California's residents Necropolis was a haunted city, at times a myth used to frighten children, a "city of cannibals" inhabited by brain-eating ghouls.

'''Necropolis''' is east of [[the Hub]]; about halfway between it and [[Hoover Dam]]. Merchants usually avoid Necropolis altogether, or plan their trips so that they pass it during the daylight hours, as it has a bad reputation. The ghouls are intensely afraid of outsiders, and prefer using guerrilla tactics to keep their city safe. There are unsubstantiated rumors that the [[Master]] and his minions wiped out the ghoul population, but caravans traveling through the area still avoid Necropolis and tell stories of ghost-like humans in tattered clothes.

This Greek word meaning "City of the Dead" refers to this strangely silent ghost town. Most of the buildings are intact, but travelers report that no one seems to live there, and people who arrive to settle it either end up with radiation sickness or simply disappear. The truth of the matter involves a small population of ghouls beneath the city's streets.

Necropolis is east of the Hub; about halfway between it and Hoover Dam. Merchants usually avoid Necropolis altogether, or plan their trips so that they pass it during the daylight hours, as it has a bad reputation. The ghouls are intensely afraid of outsiders, and prefer using guerrilla tactics to keep their city safe. There are unsubstantiated rumors that the Master and his minions wiped out the ghoul population, but caravans traveling through the area still avoid Necropolis and tell stories of ghost-like humans in tattered clothes.

Radiation levels in Necropolis are higher than the rest of the area, as a bomb exploded at Fort Irwin not far north, and the radiation infected the groundwater.
