Sorry, I should have come here first, but is it a bug? If you let the families continue on, it makes sense he might lock up his house out of fear of you or them.Occono 21:04, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

The Andale residents' severed limbs appear to multiply upon entering and exiting the Smith house.

inbreeding[edit source]

wouldn't certain mutations evolve (six fingers) evolve after generations of inbreeding?


The way mutations work is that certain genes, that can happen to any one, are more likely to appear more than once. So if a Mr. Smith had something small wrong with him then both his children may have it. Then when the (ew) inbreeding happens that that same gene may come back but stronger. There is no guarantee of anything happening at all. They are just more likely.

Sign your posts, with four tildes (~) and put this sort of thing on blogs/forums in future. Discussion pages are just for talking about the information/layout of the article. JaspertheViking :D? 19:22, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

that really depends on the circumstances, but in fiction the negative effects of inbreeding are massively exaggerated. Especially with cousins, a man having a child with his cousin is unlikely to produce any abhorrent mutations within a single generation. And it depends on how big the genetic pool is. We dont know the complete geneology of andale, but i am going to assume they had to abduct some people into their ranks at a few points because of the lackof gender diversity. ralok 19:26, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
Inbreeding effects are exaggerated in horror films, however there are very real mutations common among some inbred communities. The primary one being syndactyly (webbed toes or fingers), it is suffered by many inbred african and pakastani families and is a common side effect in inbred mice, rats, and cattle. However it's important to note that not everyone with webbed fingers or toes are products of inbreeding. Mictlantecuhtli 20:12, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Grognak the Barbarian[edit source]

There is no Grognak comic in this location on the 360 that I can find. Unless it has glitched and fallen into the table in question. Mictlantecuhtli 19:21, August 10, 2010 (UTC)


I can confirm. There is a Grognak in the basement. JaspertheViking :D? 19:37, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

360 Difference[edit source]

On the 360 the door to Harris' house is not key locked if you pass the "snack" speech check, it is a "easy" lock. However he will not say anything but a one liner about the wanderer getting out of town before it's too late until such a time as the parents have been killed.

Reference[edit source]

Is it just me or does a post-apocalyptic group of white-bread cannibals seem really similar to a certain white-bread cannibal family in the post-apocalyptic movie Six String Samurai? 12.106.179.2

Its not as blatant if it is a reference as say, New Vegas Samurai so I don't think it should be added. 67.142.164.25 10:52, May 23, 2011 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit source]

When I first discovered this town, I honestly thought it was pronounced "ON-duh-lay", like Speedy Gonzoles' catchphrase, instead of "ANN-dale", like they say in the game. Even after that discovery, I still pronounced it "ON-duh-lay". Am I the only one who made this mistake? --Omny87 05:08, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
