  • $\begingroup$ I like the idea of breaking up the setting and remolding it for realism of world building, but there are simply too many questions going on here. You should limit down the scope. $\endgroup$ – Ranger Aug 19 '16 at 17:58
  • $\begingroup$ And before somebody suggests it, no, this question would not fit on Sci-Fi Stack Exchange. $\endgroup$ – Ranger Aug 19 '16 at 17:58

    $\begingroup$ You should simply use the Fallout setting is you want to write Fallout fanfic. Fallout has many things that are unrealsitic and don't hold up under scrutiny. The games are still fun, tho. $\endgroup$ – Polygnome Aug 19 '16 at 18:07
  • $\begingroup$ I agree with Polygnome, part of the idea of fanfics is to set a story in the same universe. That said, this is too broad simply because you are asking far too many questions at once. Narrow it down to one that you'd like answered first, flesh it out a bit (I really doubt everyone is familiar with the Fallout universe -- I'm not, for one -- so explaining the relevant bits would be a good start), then take what you learn from the answers to that and apply it to the next, asking about any parts of it you still can't figure out. Compare meta.worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/q/3825/29. $\endgroup$ – a CVn Aug 19 '16 at 18:24
  • $\begingroup$ I also recommend reviewing Are questions based on movies okay? and Are answers solely referencing novels/movies/etc. okay?. While the latter is about answers more than questions, the same general principles apply. See also How do I ask a good question? in our site's help center. $\endgroup$ – a CVn Aug 19 '16 at 18:27
