Core Region.jpg
New California, also called the Core Region, is what remains of the west coast of the North American continent, including southern Oregon, western Nevada, and California. Major settlements in the Core Region emerged either from preexisting settlements from before the Great War or from the vaults that dot the region; prominent settlements include the Los Angeles Boneyard, New Reno, San Fransisco, the Hub, Vault City and Shady Sands.

The Children of the Cathedral, the cult branch of Unity dictated by the Master, held influence in the Core Region until they were defeated by The Vault Dweller from Vault 13 in 2162. The Enclave held a hidden though powerful presence in the Core Region until their main base of operations, an offshore oil rig was destroyed in 2242 by the Chosen One, a descendant of the Vault Dweller. After Unity was gone and while the Enclave were crippled and emigrating east, the New California Republic (est. 2186) grew out of Shady Sands and came to dominate the region, soon following a policy of expansion.

About Fallout
Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game is a post-apocalyptic computer role-playing game that was developed and published by Interplay in 1997 and is the first game in the Fallout series.

The game takes place in the year 2161 on the West Coast of what used to be the United States of America, particularly in California. It begins in Vault 13, the protagonist's home. Vault 13's water chip, a computer chip responsible for the water recycling and pumping machinery, has broken. Armed with a PIPBoy 2000 and meager equipment, the protagonist is sent out into the remains of California to find another water chip.

  • If you want to help but you are not sure where to start, try improving the various stub articles by expanding them. Another helpful activity would be to check the list of wanted pages for frequently linked-to articles that do not exist yet.
  • If you want to experiment with editing a wiki, please do it in a sandbox, not in articles.
