Fallout: Light of New Canaan (FLoNC) Intro Description

Okay, many of you fans & applicants have asked "What is F:LoNC about?"  Well, to put it simply it's going to be a new style of story that follows not the "heros" or even the "villians", but an object or idea.  You may be wondering "What in the freakin world does that mean?!"  Let us expound, first with some background:

The Fallout series is takes place in a unique world that is not quite set inside the genre Steampunk.  Although set in and after the 22nd century, its story and artwork are heavily influenced by the post-World War II nuclear paranoia of the 1950s. The series is lightly based on the Mad Max film series. The series is sometimes considered to be an unofficial sequel to Wasteland, but it could not use that title as Electronic Arts held the rights to it.1  Our favorite way to explain the Fallout universe as if our world's culture froze with the late 1940s & early 1950s, but the technology grew leaps and bounds ahead anything in our world we've currently created (though strangely mixed with Acceptable Breaks from Reality).

Before the nuclear exchange took place, great underground Vaults were constructed across America, supposedly to protect the populace from the dangers of radiation. Although only 122 were constructed, over 400,000 would be needed to protect the entire nation. This is because the Vaults were not intended to save humanity; rather, they were social experiments being conducted by the United States government. Most vaults featured some variable to test how certain things influence people (and presumably the personal characteristics of the vault's occupants) such as Vault 69, which reportedly contained 999 women and one man.2

Our series specifically extends the storyline from the Fallout: New Vegas expansion Honest Hearts (which deals somewhat with Mormon descendants), and will continue to do so all the way to mid-east America and then even expand the story from there if fans & other support permits.
Each installment of the series takes these facts as the context to the subsequent adventures: much of the landscape the player travels through is scarred with wreckage as well as radiation. These effects are not limited to the environment. Mutated survivors - those who lived through the attack outside a vault - are often physically unrecognizable as human. Even livestock - mostly represented by cows - are rarely if ever seen with fewer than two heads.3 And those cows are called Brahmin, just FYI cus they're used in caravans like mentioned in F:LoNC's pilot episode.
Well, we hope this post helps you understand this series a little bit more and kickstarts you into watching & supporting the series.  Thanks for your time!

It's Up! It's Up! It's Really Really Up!

Just a short announcement... The pilot episode of the Fallout: Light of New Canaan series is up!  If the link isn't enough for you here's the actual video, enjoy:

I hope you enjoyed it.  Remember that this was all done with two prosumer video cameras, prosumer audio equipment, and volunteer beginning (first time for some) actors.  Went pretty well considering all that.  Thanks for your support and keep checking back for more!
