Fallout New-North Fan Lore (WIP)

Recommended Posts

ABOUT

This page is mainly for my own personal project, thanks to @VATROU inspirational Alaska Lore page I have decided to post some lore relating to my own project, Lost in New-North. This was going to be purely for the development of my art portfolio, but now I have decided to expand more to it then what i first originally planned. Nothing within the lore will be set in stone, i will be slowly adding to it as I go. I'm acting as if I'm creating an add-on for Fallout 4, so ill be covering a lot of things along side the lore. 

NOTE: I am not a hardcore Fallout fan.... yet, I have only just recently invested more time in reading about Fallout's universe , Fallout 4 was my first experience within the fallout universe. Apologies if there is anything incorrect relating to the lore of fallout written on this page.  

you can find VATROU's lore page here > https://t.co/iZkLBjC4Bw

NOTE: Most artwork found on this page, I created so please don't steal any.

RECENTLY EDITED TABS are represented with this >  *  

 

NEW-NORTH MAP

DEVELOPMENT #2 

map_new_north_dev_2_by_sethandreasbrasse

NOTE: a lot of work is still needed, roads, highways & tracks are almost complete, terrain elevation is near completion, a lot of the south side of the map is in need of detail, Most of the icons seen on this map are just placeholders, I will create custom icons to replace them just as i have done with the Goltangage icon, represented with the company logo.  

DEVELOPMENT #1

ART DIRECTION 

Spoiler

For New-North I have decided to give it, well rather then the standard 50's setting Fallout fans are familiar with but I gave it a 70's vibe its going to be a bit of a blend between the two, I hope it doesn't alienate it too much, from the Fallout series. Having it set in Australia has really given me a lot of freedom, there's really not that much lore on Australia or on any of the other countries, other then America and a bit of China & Russia. This gives me the opportunity to make up nearly anything I want after the time stamp of the second world war.  

 

LORE

Spoiler

 

New-North is one of many regions within the northern reaches of Australia. The New-North coast once housed one of the largest resorts within Australia, The New-North Resort. The NNR (New-North Resort) was once a great architectural achievement blending atomic fusion with luxury & entertainment. The residents that once fenced the NNR are now submerged in shallow waters with protruding mangroves that cover the lands of the coastal line. Crawling fog covers most of these wetlands, obscuring the view of the supposed creatures that creep with it.

Most folk that live around the great mangrove forests tell stories of creatures that crawl ashore and take the children that play too close to the mangroves; this is mostly just tales to scare them to keep them from harm’s way.

Down south away from the coast there are large residential areas that are made up of mostly wealthy cliff side houses, well what remains of them, some have managed to stand the harsh weather conditions without to much destruction whilst most have collapsed down the face of the hill.

If you go for a more rare mutated animals taking a focus on the people and environment then you could set up so that these mutated creatures are special and a dangerous threat few have seen. I also like how Goltangage shut down and reopened later selling a new product.

Thanks guys for the comments and feedback, I'm currently creating all the pre-war companies so i can create location relating to these companies, i will be creating factions for post-war.

creating these companies and location will help expand on the possible creatures & factions. I was thinking that Australia would most likely have been bombarded with warheads, but possibly just the main cities, or the large US military facility located in the central desert part of Australia, called Pine Gap. Fore New-North, since its based in a fictional city on the coast in Northern Territory I wanted to make it that the city had been it by tsunamis not warheads, and have something that the folk have passed on about the "Great King Wave" or something like that. So the northern part of the map, the coast line is swap like, with lots of mangroves, and then down south there is a large hill with cliff houses, behind that hill the terrain will be rather then the swap/wetlands it will be the start to a desert. Within the desert there will be a large uranium mine, with a city within it, and a little town just outside of that, the surrounding areas will have hostiles that constantly raid the city.
