This article is within the scope of the Document conversion project. This project is dedicated to making the Fallout Bible
and the Van Buren design documents
available for reading at the wiki. If you want to participate, please check the project page.
||The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
The Jericho design document for the Van Buren project (Black Isle's Fallout 3) was leaked from a top secret source on July 14, 2005 at No Mutants Allowed. It was written by Jeff Husges and is a complete description of all places, characters and quests in the location "Jericho".
The leaked version is the result of merging the original Jericho with New Canaan, after the latter was cut from the game because of time constraints. No document for the original Jericho was ever released, but some information about it was leaked.
Given that the New Canaan design document was what was intended to be part of the game and was cut only because of time constraints and that it is more consistent with other design documents, the version described in the New Canaan document is generally considered in this wiki as more of a canon depiction than the Jericho document and takes priority when Van Buren lore is described.
The original document has been split into 2 parts for reading at the wiki.
