My Bullshit Comics Blog
I’m starting this blog to do some world building and story backgrounds for the ‘New Vegas’ I feature in some of my comics. For the purposes of storytelling and ‘plot’ I will be doing a little ret-con and expanding on the world of Fallout New Vegas.
Now...to set the stage...
Vault 21 as a concept wouldn’t work as a control vault. In true VaultTech fashion there would have to be a foil, something that would happen to set the vault on end. For my story-line I’m inserting ‘the Administrators’ as that hook. The protocol that activated the Administrators was the true purpose of Vault 21.
According to ‘the lore’ everyone in Vault 21 was equal and disputes were settled by games of chance and gambling. That’s just dumb. Within one generation human nature would take over; leaders and followers would emerge and they would form a hierarchy on their own, unless there was a secret one already in place.
Twenty years after the vault doors were sealed the protocol was initiated. It was quite simple actually; five random vault residents were given unexpected and high-ranking job positions. They were also given spacious living quarters, extended commissary privileges, and so on. This made them the new elite and verified that everyone wasn’t equal. Once these ‘Administrators’ were comfortable and complacent the second part of the protocol was to be initiated; the other vault residents were to be told what was going on. But things didn’t exactly work out as planned since the Overseer happened to be one of the Administrators. Activating the second part of the protocol would never happen and the Administrators keep their positions and privileges.
Within two generations the idea of Vault 21 being populated with nothing but rabid gamblers collapsed and the vault became a somewhat normal closed society. By that time the existence of the Administrators was common knowledge and it was something for the residents to aspire to.
So...when I’m writing these stupid comics that’s the loose premise I’m working from; Vault 21 is a control vault ruled by a small group of elites and the events take place about 50 years after the vault was sealed. Duh End.
