Little Lamplight is a settlement in the Capital Wasteland, populated entirely by children. The cave system was once a tourist attraction, but after the Great War, a school group visiting the caverns on a field trip had to remain inside or die from nuclear fallout. As the adult chaperones slowly died off, the children become independent and created their own society based on the cultivation and trade of the radiation-absorbing fungus that grows in the cave. As a policy, inhabitants must leave Little Lamplight on their sixteenth birthday, with no exceptions. In order to access Vault 87, one must go through Little Lamplight's Murder Pass, a cavern system dominated by super mutants.
