Where does the game take place?

Fallout MUX takes place in the Seattle area since none of the franchises have taken place there and is open to our interpretation of the area.

What races can I play?

You can currently play Humans, Androids, Ghouls, Half-Mutant or Super-Mutant characters. Please note that the availability of these races are subject to change at the Staff's discretion. Once in CharGen, you will see the current availability of each race.

Can I play characters from the games?

Yes, but these are considered on a case-by-case basis. We may consider rare exceptions if the idea and the character application are extremely well done. All Featured Character (FC) applications will require a lot more work and effort than those applications for an Original Character (OC). Characters who would not be alive in the time that the game is set in will not be allowed, for obvious reasons. If you're interested in playing a FC, you MUST speak with Staff BEFORE you enter CharGen. All FCs will be placed on the FC roster should you no longer be active enough to play the character or you wish to give the character up. FC characters will be rare and most likely not be approved.

Can I play one of the main characters from the video games?

No. Their stories have already been told and we would rather players begin new stories with their characters. Because of this, the main characters from the games have died or their whereabouts are unknown with a very unlikely chance of returning to the public eye. The Lone Wanderer has disappeared into the wastelands and the Courier is busy running New Vegas. But this doesn't mean that they may not make an appearance briefly for plot purposes run by the Staff.

Can I play a character from outside of Seattle?

Yes. We welcome characters from all over the country as long as the character's background makes sense, is believable and fits in with the game's setting. We won't allow characters to have been abducted by Mothership Zeta.

Can I play a Vault Dweller?

Yes. You are more than welcome to play a character from one of the local Vaults. We will not allow characters that come from Vaults outside of this area or in Vaults from other Fallout media.

Why did you make the Lone Wanderer and Courier female?

We decided to make the Lone Wanderer and the Courier a female since the main characters from Fallout and Fallout 2 were male. We decided to make these two female to even things out and since women are just as good as males at saving the Wastelands.

What alignment did you make the Lone Wanderer and Courier?

With all the Fallout main characters, we went with the good alignment. None of the major actions they did in the games were neutral or evil.

What happened to New Vegas?

We went with an independent New Vegas. Both the NCR and Legion were pushed out of the Mojave Wasteland and putting a sudden end to the NCR-Legion War.
