Fallout 3

Baby Steps

Nathan Garvin

Assign your starting attributes by perusing the “You’re S.P.E.C.I.A.L.” book. The suggested starting attributes are on the right.

1) You’re S.P.E.C.I.A.L.!

The game starts out… with your birth. Here you’ll get to customize your character’s appearance (don’t worry, you can change this later, if you decide you made an ug-o.) All is not well, however, and after some drama, you’re flash-forwarded to a little bit later in life. You’ll have a tutorial on how to walk. When you’re left do your own devices, open the gate and tottle over to the “YOU’RE SPECIAL” book on the floor and activate it. Flip through the pages and assign all your attributes. When you reach the end of the book you’ll get a chance to assign them all at once. If you’re following this guide’s build, you’ll want the following attributes:

Suggested Starting Attributes Score
Strength 5
Perception 6
Endurance 6
Charisma 1
Intelligence 9
Agility 7
Luck 6

2) Revelation 21:6

When you’re done being “S.P.E.C.I.A.L.”, your dad will come back and show you the Bible passage Revelation 21:6, which plays a fairly prominent role in the game. A religious scientist? Sure… Your dad’s a rare breed, isn’t he? When he’s done yammering follow him out into the hall and time will fast-foward again.

War never changes. The Fallout franchise certainly has, however. In 2008 Bethesda revived Interplay’s famous “Post Nuclear Role Playing Game”, moving from third person to first person, and from the west coast to the east coast. You are the Lone Wanderer, an outcast from Vault 101 who sacrifices a relatively easy life in order to brave the terrors of the post-apocalyptic Wasteland and find your Dad, whose mysterious departure from Vault 101 sets a chain of events in motion that will change the Capital Wasteland forever…

This guide is intended to be the ultimate completionist’s guide to Fallout 3.

  • Every area in the game covered extensively including all side quests and main quests.
  • All the Bobbleheads, skill books and schematic locations.
  • A full trophy/achievement guide.
  • An in-depth information about character creation is also provided so you can create whatever Vault Dweller suits you best.
  • Good, evil and neutral alternatives to quests will be presented where applicable.

Become the Last, Best Hope of Humanity… or add to the continuing sum of human misery in your selfish quest for survival. Sneak past foes, talk your way out of confrontations, shoot everything in the head, or create a character who can do it all. The Wasteland is a big, dangerous place, and this guide will help you experience as much as possible.
