Continuing with my ret-con of New Vegas lore for Vault 21, these are the ‘Administrators' I referenced in the initial blog post.

Vault21_TheAdministrators.thumb.jpg.4802b6caca0f992c3dd6b9ac3c159dc7.jpg

 

(1) Toshiro Hino
Doctor and chemist, the son of the first doctor in Vault 21.  Toshiro is a descendant of one of the last samurai families in Meji Era Japan.  He is proud of his heritage and has an ancestral set of Dō-maru armor and his family’s katana on display in his quarters.

Plot Hook: It is rumored he has an incestuous relationship with younger sister, Honiko.

(2) Yasmine Clarke
Computer whiz and champion chess player.  Yasmine is one of the oldest in the second generation of Vault 21, and she is also the newest and youngest Administrator.  Being thrust into the situation has been overwhelming for her and frequently she turns to the other Administrators for guidance.

Plot Hook: Yasmine is very intelligent and calculating.

(3) Anne Walker
Social climber and master manipulator.  Anne was an infant when her parents entered the vault in 2077, and while not technically born in Vault 21, she is considered a first generation of vault dweller.  Anne’s singular talent is being able to read people and she uses it to her advantage.  She has a well-earned notorious reputation because of her predatory nature.

Plot Hook: Anne doesn’t seem to be aging at a normal rate and is much older than she appears.

(4) Lance Regan
Survival specialist and leader of the ‘Pioneers'.  Cocky and somewhat arrogant, Lance heads an 8 man squad of trained professionals and their main mission is excursions into the wasteland.  Very few people have left the vault and fewer have returned, but Lance and his men have an excellent success record.

Plot Hook: Lance and his team don't report everything they find in the Mojave.

(5) Alejandro Gandara
Vault 21 Overseer and the oldest and most experienced of the Administrators. Alejandro (or Alex) was a child when the war started and he remembers life before the vault.  Mostly an introvert, the things that bring him out of his shell are quality liquor and a woman’s attention.

Plot Hook: Now and old man, Alejandro wants to see blue skies and breath real air again before he dies.

Interesting backstories.

Curious as to what kind of things Lance and his team don't report. I can only guess, but I'll have to wait and see later on.

Well, in the 'official time line of the FO lore' not a whole helluva lot has happened per se in the Mojave.  My time line for the stories starts in 2127.  That allows for enought time to pass where the Vault 22 residents say 'fuck you' to the VaultTech directives and come to their collective senses.  In other vaults; the Boomers are still in a functioning Vault 34, Vault 22 has been opened for over 30 years and the events of Fallout 1 are still 30 years in the future.

The only creatures around would be what was already in the Mojave.  Super mutants haven't arrived yet and 50 years isn't enough time for things like geckos, bighorners and brahmin to be 'a thing'.  The only mutated animals I see being reasonable are the giant insects.  There would be ghouls (sentient and feral) scattered about.  Mostly the danger would come from packs of wild dogs and other humans.

Most likely the Mojave would be pretty sparse at this time, aside from roaming gangs fighting one another and living off of the old world's carcass, and small isolated farming communities scratching out a meager survival.  'Tribes' haven't formed yet since there isn't a social niche for them to fill.

Wouldn't there also be Super Mutants... from their Vault? I ask as I understand it that vault was experimenting quite early on (perhaps even before the bomb dropped and nuked the entrance) with Super Mutants. It wouldn't perhaps be as bad as it is now and perhaps might still have some humans there (admin) or perhaps ghoul(due to the door being nuked however inside through most o the vault it is pretty radiation free)

Also I suspect there would be more cannibals during that time as well, which in time would come together later and forum the tribe which would eventually create the Luxe.

I have however only briefly played with the lore from that time period...

I have to admit I am getting a bit interested in this story line.. :)

According to the 'real lore' (not Bethesda dev afterthoughts) the supermutants we're familiar with are still on the west coast and wouldn't have had time to make it to the Mojave.  Deathclaws aren't a thing either and the projects to make them and supermutants are not in full swing yet.

I admit I haven't even considered cannibals as a wasteland hazard but they would definitely be something to deal with, though they wouldn't be a major factor imo.  In the plethora of gangs to deal with there would certainly be groups who eat people, either as a source of protein or as an intimidation tactic.

As for the time line and what factions may or may not be around, the official time line has everything laid out really well.   The Brotherhood of Steel is still in the bunkers at Lost Hills.  They won't be doing anything for another 40 years.  The core group who founds the NCR are still in Vault 15 and people won't start leaving there until 2041, that's 14 years in the future.  The only faction to have any substantial presence is the Enclave, and they are still on the west coast.  Though I'm sure they would be scouting as far as their vertibirds could fly and they would have temporary fire bases scattered about.

:D

I was just thinking, you could really have some serious fun with this time period...

I mean just because "official" has some info there doesn't mean that there isn't some differences, strange thing that could have happened (within reason of course) which would / could give some interesting story. The Enclave for example could have decided to send a small group toward DC. Hell for that matter a small group from BS could have done so as well. to secure some really important top secret tech, gain some intell on it (it is DC after all ;)) It could make sense.

You can add small reasonable "spice" to the story (your story) where the unexpected would happen. This is what is so interesting about this time period. Originally I thought you were doing it more towards the current timeline. before Vault 21 is destroyed/abandoned.

In any case this is turning out to be an interesting comic.
