Having failed to locate a water chip in Shady Sands, she and her partner head toward The Hub, hoping for better luck there, or at least a rope so they can further explore the ruins of Vault 15. But what kind of people live in a thriving trading town in this wasteland? How well will they take to one such as Natalia?
We kick off the new season with Into the Wasteland, the first episode in an 11-episode audio-drama adaptation of Interplay's 1997 classic CRPG Fallout: A Post-Nuclear RPG.
It's a much darker tone than last season; Fallout takes place in an alternate timeline in which a nuclear war led to the world being annihilated but for the survivors who hid away in underground shelters. Our protagonist, voiced by RPG Rabbit who had narrated last season, is a descendant of some of those survivors, and she is being sent to the surface in an effort to save her people from water shortage.
This episode and the season as a whole owes much to the support and contributions of listeners and drama or video game enthusiasts. Unlike last season, this one employs the voices of dozens of people from all over the world. Thanks to everyone who contributed, and of course if anyone else wants to, feel free to send us an e-mail and we may be able to use your talent in upcoming seasons.
