    Final Act

    So it's been two years, almost 200k words. And while definitely not perfect, I'm really happy with the outcome. Two years ago I set out with the goal of picking up better-writing habits, practising my grammar and sentence structure. (Which may not always be stellar)

    I had absolutely no plan in place which I think is why this ended up being such a girthy fic.

    Firstly I'd like to say that this took a little longer for a few reasons:

    I was in the hospital for ten days - nothing too serious, during my stay I wrote the majority of this - minus the final battle scene. I also spent much of my time there reediting the reactor scenes in chapters one through three. This was a real arseache to do.

    Mental Excrement

    I'm happy with story progression and I have a general arc in mind as well as an end goal. (I don't yet have an ending) However, I'm gonna offer you all (Y'all) an opportunity to give me suggestions for things you'd like to see. I'm not necessarily going to write them - but if you'd like a shot at influencing this tale then let me know!

    Baby steps

    Hey all, PaleFace here, my first blog for my first story "Off The Grid". I wrote it mostly for my own enjoyment and I decided I would share if with the community. Feedback appreciated of course.

    Have a pleasant day.

Clarification · 8:10am Dec 3rd, 2019

Hey all.
Someone asked me about the feasibility of space travel in the fallout setting. Since playing fallout 3 and new vegas as a kid, I was always drawn to the space-age technology you could find scattered around the wasteland. I reasoned humankind was on the brink of having colonies on Mars and elsewhere. Its told to you as much by some characters and you can read about it in a few terminals.

Its definitely hinted that the capabilities of human spaceflight in the fallouts 21st century are not far off from having colonies in our solar system. By 2075 there are Robco robots orbiting the solar bodies using Repconn rockets (New Vegas). The first manned mission to Mars using an ArcJet systems rocket was due to take place around the day the bombs fell on October 23rd, 2077. (Fallout 4)

That's not to mention some kind of space battle in the sea of tranquillity on the moon (fallout 4) or the military-grade satellites that can still function after 200 years. There are also aliens in the fallout universe (fallout 3, broken steel and mothership zeta DLC), so therefore advanced technology does exist within the lore, enough to travel great distances and the technology to safely put people in cryostasis.

Mr House in fallout new vegas mentioned if he could secure the Mojave wasteland, he said:

"Give me 20 years and I'll reignite the high technology development sectors. 50 years and I'll have people in orbit."

"100 years and my colony ships will be heading for the stars, to search for planets unpolluted by the wrath and folly of a bygone generation"

Therefore the technology exists or has the potential to. John is a direct descendant of the founder of the brotherhood. Sometime in the 24th century. Almost 400 years since the nuclear war.

Hope this clears things up.
