Vault 101 atrium.jpg
Vault 101 is one of the vault series of fallout shelters developed by Vault-Tec Industries. Located in the central Capital Wasteland, V101 was an experiment focused around prolonged isolation and the effects of an omnipotent and omnipresent overseer. For over 150 years of isolation, the vault remained closed until the overseer sent out scouting parties to study the outside world and determine if it was safe to permanently open the vault. The progressive overseer disappeared on a similar excursion thereafter; foul play was suspected, but Alphonse Almodovar succeeded him as overseer nonetheless and brought the vault back into traditional isolation. Within the Vault, life was stifled by brainwashing and Almodovar's firm grip on the community. It was safe, but no place to truly live. James, the Vault physician taken in from the wasteland, abandoned the shelter and their child to again pursue his dream, Project Purity. His child, the Lone Wanderer, would escape from the vault too in search of their runaway father.

Hello, fellow Vault Dwellers!

Today, the Strategic Nuclear Moose, in conjunction with the The Vault, would like to take this chance to present this community with a unique opportunity: a competition to celebrate the recent Fallout 4 news, and the fans that have made the Fallout community such an amazing one. This competition will be a Fallout theory challenge, in which contestants can put forth their most creative and desired Fallout theories forward for a chance to win from our prize-pool!

The Vault will be competing with up to 5 other communities, and 20 entries will be accepted from each for a chance to win prizes such as official Fallout bobbleheads, vynils, shirts, and even a brand-new copy of either Fallout 4, or its eventual Game of the Year edition! A judge will be picked from each community, and once all of the accepted entries are pooled together, they will determine the 1st through 6th place winners!

Interested? Then start on your entries now, as the 20 slots are going to fill up quick! Even if you do not make it in time, still make sure to send your entries in, as not only is there the possibility of making it in due to poor entries being rejected, but you might also win in the underdog & community votes! For all of the juicy details, please visit this Link:

Interested in becoming a judge, or feel as if someone else deserves the position? Then make sure to use this blog to propose names! In the event that a nominee is not proposed, we will attempt to pick a judge from the administrator pool here at The Vault.

Thank you for reading, and we will be looking forward to seeing your creativity and competitive spirit! - © 2012-2015 - The Strategic Nuclear Moose is neither affiliated with nor officially endorsed by Bethesda Softworks, Zenimax Online Studios, or Obsidian Entertainment.

It's been two weeks since Fallout 4 was revealed during Bethesda's pre-E3 E3 conference. The Fallout fan community has exploded like a supermutant hit with a rocket from a Rockwell BigBazooka. Let's recap what we know!

E3. One of the most important, if not the most important industry events of the year. This year, it's special, as Bethesda Game Studios has revealed the gameplay for Fallout 4. So, what did we take away from it? Here are the brass tacks.

There has been plenty of rumors regarding details of the upcoming Fallout 4 release. Some of them claimed that the game will be initially released for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4, and later for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. This last-gen release was said to be using Skyrim's Creation engine instead of the brand new one used for last-gen consoles and PC.

Well, according to Matt "Gstaff" Grandstaff, Bethesda's Community Lead, this is just not true. Last-gen consoles won't be seeing Fallout 4 release after all:

It is not coming to 360 and PS3, the stuff we’re doing will never work there.

Matt Grandstaff

Some of you may consider this good news, others may think otherwise. But at least we got some clarity here. And, yeah, no last-gen limitations whatsoever.
