From The Vault

Execution of an insurgent.

The Fallout intro begins with the song "Maybe" by The Ink Spots and a screen of a Radiation King television set showing a Vault Tec ad for Vault 13, featuring the Vault Boy watering plants and waving at the camera as the Vault blast door closes, followed by the "Vault of the Future" picture. Next, a Galaxy News Network program starts, stating that "Our dedicated boys keep the peace in newly annexed Canada" and showing two American soldiers in power armors executing a Canadian insurgent and waving at the camera. Then a power armored soldier is shown in front of the American flag with 13 stars and a war bond ad. Next, ads for Chryslus Corvega and Mr. Handy appear. The TV shuts down and the music fades, as the camera shows us ruins of a city. The city happens to be the futuristic Bakersfield now Necropolis as evidenced by the outro movie's picture of Necropolis.

After the cinematic intro, a series of still photographs with a narration by Ron Perlman follows.


The sadly all-too-typical view of nuclear war.

War. War never changes.

The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower.

But war never changes.

In the 21st century, war was still waged over the resources that could be acquired. Only this time, the spoils of war were also its weapons: Petroleum and Uranium. For these resources, China would invade Alaska, the US would annex Canada, and the European Commonwealth would dissolve into quarreling, bickering nation-states, bent on controlling the last remaining resources on Earth.

In 2077, the storm of world war had come again. In two brief hours, most of the planet was reduced to cinders. And from the ashes of nuclear devastation, a new civilization would struggle to arise.

A few were able to reach the relative safety of the large underground Vaults. Your family was part of that group that entered Vault Thirteen. Imprisoned safely behind the large Vault door, under a mountain of stone, a generation has lived without knowledge of the outside world.

Life in the Vault is about to change.
