Behind the scenes
In a Fallout 3 afterthoughts feature, Emil Pagliarulo mentions Allistair Tenpenny, in that he traveled to the Capital Wasteland from Great Britain in order to seek his fortune. Pagliarulo stated that by mentioning small details about the state of the rest of the world, characters like Tenpenny can "serve as a catalyst" for players' imaginations.[Non-game 3] Tenpenny is also described as an Englishman in the Fallout 3 Official Game Guide.[Non-game 4]
↑Edwin Brotch: "No, Mister DeLoria, that is not correct. The Battle of Hastings was 1066. 2077 was the end of the world. Tell me. Are you really that stupid?" (Edwin Brotch's dialogue)
↑Lone Wanderer: "What's the history behind the document?" Abraham Washington: "On July the 4th in 1776, a group calling themselves the Second Judgmental Congress got together at Fort McHarry in Maryland. After a ceremony which ended with Paul Revere singing the famous battle hymn known as the National Anthem, the document was signed. From there, it was sent to England by plane presumably and presented to King George himself. Thus began the Evolutionary War." (Abraham Washington's dialogue)
↑Wixon's Shovel Museum plaque: "British Shovel Fighters were some of the most feared and deadly warriors of the Revolutionary War. They were known for their pristine ditches and the uncanny ability to deflect rifle shot."
↑Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p. 678: "Here marks the landing of Captain John Smith’s shallop upon his discovery of Point Lookout in 1612. Now it’s known colloquially as Blackhall Needle due to its close proximity to Blackhall Manor [1.02], and the fact most of the locals can’t read this plaque. This is just northeast of the Blackhall Jetty [4.B]."
↑Emil Pagliarulo: "Allistair Tenpenny came to the Capital Wasteland from Great Britain to seek his fortune, so that alone tells you that the U.K. was also hit in the war. And if he came to U.S. to succeed, that says a lot about how screwed up Europe must be. So we just allude, a little bit, to the state of the rest of the world. We like to leave a lot to the players' imaginations, and somebody like Tenpenny serves as a catalyst for those thoughts." (Fallout 3 Afterthoughts)
↑Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p. 60: "Allistair Tenpenny an 80-year-old Englishman turned American entrepreneur, the man who discovered the tower saw it as an opportunity to provide residents with a standard of living enjoyed by the affluent in the days before the nuclear Armageddon. A rich eccentric who's bored with life and looking for new challenges, he enjoys sniping at wasteland creatures, ghouls, and the occasional visitor from his suite atop Tenpenny Tower."
