Point Lookout is a swampland to the south of the Capital Wasteland. The marshes were never directly hit by the bombs of the Great War, but the latent radiation and centuries of isolation still have had an effect on the landscape and locals. The antique land is rumored to hold untold numbers of treasures just waiting for the intrepid (and perhaps lucky) adventurer to uncover them. The area is almost completely devoid of any organized civilization. Tribals that worship the native punga fruit operate out of the Ark & Dove Cathedral in the north while the deranged and deformed swampfolk wander the entire swamp and indigenous mirelurks inhabit the coastline. Locals to Point Lookout are few and far between, often living in humble shacks and mostly keeping to themselves. However, two parties from before the Great War, Professor Calvert and Desmond Lockheart, have chosen Point Lookout as the location of their ongoing feud, hoping that one will defeat the other and the hostile wetland will consume all traces of the defeated.
