Fallout 4 Survival Sandbox (GURPS 4E)
I am now recruiting players for my “Fallout: The Commonwealth” game. I have a few players already who expressed early interest. We have spent the past week discussing game mechanics, the setting, and house rules. The game is nearing 200 posts but we have not started any IC threads yet, everything has simply been rules talk and pre-game discussion. Now is a great time to jump in before we get started Monday!

The game takes heavy inspiration from Bethesda’s Fallout 4 video game. However, I have taken creative liberty in altering some lore details and how certain mechanics work. That being said, I am doing my best to stick to the general theme and feel of fallout 4, just intensifying it by a lot. The video game was limited by its engine, we are not. The game is going to have a heavy focus on the bleak side of fallout, and will focus on gritty survival gameplay in a sandbox environment. The players are encouraged to push the story in the direction they want to take, and will not be forced to stay with the other player characters.

Since the game has a heavy focus on immersive survival, gritty combat, and detailed crafting and scavenging I am using the game mechanics GURPS 4e. If you do not have experience with GURPS, that is okay we have several very experienced players who are more than willing to help others out. GURPS is intimidating and weird, but not that difficult to understand once you get through character creation.

It is rated MATURE for themes revolving around cannibalism, murder, suicide, and other violent situations. I will not be describing these things in graphic detail. There will be no torture scenes, beyond a few punches while a character is tied up at the most. There will be no sexual content. I will allow fade to black, and some “PG-13” content. However, I do not intend to have this kind of content in my game, and ask that it be avoided. Please message me for further clarification if needed. However, please be aware that these themes may be hinted at or come up in gameplay. I will be subscribing to rpols mature rating policies. Please review them before applying. If something proves to trigger or otherwise bother a player, I will remove the content without question. I ask that only those aged 18 or above apply.

Each player will start as one pre-war sanctuary resident. You start with a job and a normal (or maybe not so normal) life. You’ll spend your introduction playing through a day in the life of a pre-war sanctuary resident. Depending on your background you’ll go to work, have some family time, or maybe catch a Nuka cola at your local Red Rocket. Then you’ll attend a meeting where Vault Tec will inform you that you have been specially chosen and given a spot in Vault 111. Shortly after receiving this great news, the bombs will fall and your world will end in a fiery blaze.

But, thanks to Vault Tec, you will survive this apocalyptic doomsday scenario and emerge 210 years later into a very different world…
