Fallout - Charred Albion by jollyjack Fallout - Charred Albion by jollyjack
I was toying around with an idea for a fan-comic set in the Fallout universe.
It was inspired by the release of a few government doomsday plans a while back. They were written up during the cold war and detailed how the major cities would be abandoned and the remaining members of parliament would establish miniature fiefdoms in various corners of the country, where it was predicted that few bombs (or resulting fallout) would land.
Once I started making notes on a potential story line, though, I decided I liked the concept too much to waste on a profitless fan-project and removed all the Fallout universe elements (what few there actually were. The fate of Europe isn’t really explored).

It’s just at that “this would make a cool little mini-series” stage, like so many of my projects. Needs a lot of fleshing out before it actually goes anywhere.

IF it goes anywhere.

Gotta get Little Victory done and dusted first.

Edit: "Albion" is the oldest recorded name of the British Isles....not the setting of a Lionhead game......

I would love to play a modern Fallout game set around the ruins of London.

I imagine Britain would still have American products like Nuka-Cola, Vault-tec and RobCo products, though the vaults perhaps registered with roman numerals to keep them different from american vaults. I even got rough story ideas for it.

Fallout is one of those few American set games that  make me wonder whats happening in Britain at time.

MmHmm if it was in China they'd have to bring back Captain Zao. For Canada I just want to see how Toronto or Ronto looks, it'd be awesome to see a city I've spent so much time in real life, be depicted in the world of Fallout.

Possibly, if what that guy in the PITT said is true then Ronto has a large raider presence, but the lack of Super Mutants and likely no Deathclaws, Bethesda could really get creative with Canada, China to for that matter, either way it'd be an awesome game for sure.

I recently got fallout 3 and got the same kind of idea with my city. When I first stepped out of the vault in the game, I was so taken away with the atmosphere.

It would be nice to play a Fallout game not set in the United States for once. I'm curious to know what the rest of the worldi sl ike.

Like China for example. They were the ones the USA were fighting in the war, so what's their country like right now?

But if the FEV was unique to the fallout shelters in the USA, there would be no super mutants. How would Fallout be explained in any other place than America? Not only would the whole atmosphere of the 50/60's be totally gone, but they would have to figure out a new reason for other places to have fallout shelters; the currency probably wouldn't be bottle caps, they wouldn't have stealth boys (because China had their own prototype, or pipboys... I feel like Fallout in a different country would be Metro 2033... Not China... but close.

Sorry, but that's stupid. Fallout is build around Sci-Fi fantasy from USA 1950-1960. The part of it charm comes from: smooth jazz, funny futuristic robots, the fear about commie invasion, etc. Does China and/or Europe have something similar? I haven't heard about it

I'll be honest Fallout disappointed me quite abit especially Fallout New Vegas. When you think of a post apocalyptic world, most people think of a dark terrifying world where things such as ammo. food and water would be hard to come by. A world where the sun is blotted out and a dark radioactive fog sweeps the landscape.

But Fallout was none of this. It was usually sunny and clear. There were towns everywhere and lots of food and ammo. Only a few bits were really gritty and scary. It just seemed to gimmicky.

I admit it was a good game which was fun to explore but it was executed terribly.

You've got to think though, fallout was set 200 years after the war so most of the dark gloomy fog, and sky would have cleared, but i get what you're saying about the whole "scavenging ammo and equipment" thing, you would think it would be picked clean by prospectors, you have a great point about the concept of fallout though. :)

But remember, this is a 50's alternate universe! Where there's robots everywhere and you don't somehow get obliterated by the bomb :P.

1. it's set 200 years after the war so there would be no logical explanation for you to get obliterated by an Atomic bomb (except for a grenade or something).
2.is not much of a 50's alternate universe, sure it looks like it but with the robots and all of the complex and futuristic weapons, i would say it a 50's universe mixed with a little 2077 universe. just saying

You drew a haunting image. I really like how you captured the deadness and gloom of the city under the stars like that. There's something strangely romantic about post-apocalyptic scenes like this. The Fallout series always included details from the past to give you a sense of history or nostalgia for some alternate retro-reality you'd never visit yourself.

I like the laughable plans they had to carry on society like that, as if they'd have the grit to survive in a radioactive hellhole, or more importantly why'd others would listen to those who caused doomsday in the first place.

Bethesda should hire you as a concept artist for Fallout 4. London would be an awesome setting for Fallout 4, one big settlement at Big Ben and then the wastelands of England. maybe set the corners of the map with Portsmouth at the southwest, the cliffs of Dover overlooking the irradiated English Channel in the southwest, Oxford in the northwest corner, and St. Lawrence in the northeast. I've already put way too much thought into this, I really want London for Fallout 4 or if not in Fallout 4 maybe in a spin-off like New Vegas, only without the glitches and flimsy plot devices.
I think Fallout: London would be a an awesome game if they had good writers and developers behind it, in other words GTFO Obsidian!. maybe they could get some writers from BioWare or Valve.

England nor any other place would actually need to be hit by nukes to end up as an irradiated wasteland after the bombs hit a nuclear war on that scale would leave so much radiation that the oceans would become contaminated and radioactive fallout particles would in the atmosphere would be spread around the world by the trade winds in the upper atmosphere.
Anyone who wasn't inside some sort of fallout shelter would be killed, except for the ghouls that is.

Big ben is mostly stone and iron it might actually be quite capable of withstanding a few centuries of being abandoned, where as wooden buildings and more modern buildings will deteriorate when left without maitenence.

I've worked construction building modern houses a lot of them are foam board and siding over a 2x4 or 2x6 stud wall, and the roofs are usually only half inch thick plywood under the shingles, I can't imagine newer buildings surviving 50 years abandoned let alone a couple of centuries.

Very nice, I believe that the lead creator of Fallout: NV said that he wants to do a game set in England/U.K during the Resource Wars, which were the wars over oil in Europe before the nuclear holocaust.

That aside, I've always thought U.k would turn into something like Judge Dredd with its own kind of Power Armoured enforcers, kind of like the Brotherhood but more upper class.
