Fallout

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From The Vault

While people of all races survived the Great War, the term "race" in Fallout refers mostly to different kinds of human mutants, such as ghouls and super mutants, as well as pure humans themselves.

Aside from the obvious mutant-ghoul-human and cultural bigotry (tribals vs. townsfolk, Vault City vs. everyone else), racism and sexism is alive and well. A person's skin color, status, and career are always good excuses for fear and hate to build upon, although communities like NCR and Modoc would have less of a problem with this. The Great War may have brought some communities together, but it also made isolated communities as well.

GTA Race

A GTA Race is essentially the same as a normal Race, but the competitors may use weapons to kill or slow down the competition. You may also exit and enter other vehicles. There are two additional features for a GTA Race, including which Weapons will spawn on the track (All Weapons, Off, Health Only, Pistols, SMGs, All Guns or Guns & Grenades) and Auto-Aim (Allow or Disallow). The Rocket Launcher and Molotov Cocktails also appear, but only on the "All Weapons" setting.

If you die in a GTA Race, you will respawn near your last completed Checkpoint on foot, next to a Faggio.

However, these races can be very cheap and turn into impromptu Deathmatches, as other players often block off the road near a weapon location and kill many players, often getting more money than the winner of the race.

Note

† This vehicle may not be the best choice for a race, as its acceleration is lower than the Sultan and the FIB Buffalo/NOOSE Patriot respectively.

The Race icon.

Race is a free-for-all and team multiplayer gametype in Halo: Combat Evolved. The player's objective is to be the first person or team to reach all checkpoints marked on the map.

Contents

Additional Information

Checkpoints are demarcated by an arrow or, if a player is directly facing one, a flag icon. The maximum number of checkpoints is fifteen.

When a player has completed a lap, information is displayed at the top left corner of the screen, showing the lap number completed and time taken in seconds.

Race is ideally played on the large, flat map Blood Gulch. Playing on Sidewinder, the only other vehicle-enabled map in Halo: Combat Evolved, is more difficult, as some of the checkpoints spawn on high ledges that are difficult to reach while driving a Warthog. On close quarters maps like Prisoner or Damnation with heavy weapons can result in highly chaotic game, with players more focused on killing one another rather than actually trying to complete laps.

Gametype History

Race was removed from the list of playable gametypes in Halo 2 -- likely due to its unpopularity -- and replaced with the new gametype, Territories. Race did not return in Halo 3, although features of both Territories and VIP can be edited to recreate a similar experience. Bungie has created a gametype that is somewhat like Race called Rocket Race, found in the Team Doubles playlist of Halo 3. It is a variant of VIP in which everybody is invincible (except for assassinations) and carries a rocket launcher. The player that is not the VIP is supposed to drive the VIP in a Mongoose to a territory.

Trivia

  • A Bungie Weekly Update mentioned a gametype with emphasis on vehicles, possibly hinting at the return of this gametype in Halo 3.[1] However, Race did not return in Halo 3, the mentioned gametype was Rocket Race.
  • Territories looks like the gametype to replace Race.
  • Some players create racetrack maps in Halo 3 by Forging map variants with only one Territory. When the map is played in Territories with permanent capture turned on, the player who reaches the end first ends up capturing the only Territory on the map, winning and ending the game.
  • Alternatively in Halo 3, if the goal point for the race is edited to a position where it is impossible to continuously pass and cheat, for instance in mid-air, or surrounded by death bringing teleporters, then an actual variant of VIP, commonly known as "RACETRACKS" can be implemented, affording for a proper race with several laps.

From Lostpedia

The "Race around the world" announcement ("Live Together, Die Alone")
Desmond tells Libby about the race. ("Live Together, Die Alone")

Desmond crashed on the Island during a solo sailing race around the world, sponsored by Charles Widmore's foundation. After refusing Widmore's bribe to stay away from his daughter Penny, Desmond entered the race to prove his worth. When he arrived in L.A. to train for the race, Desmond encountered Libby, who dontated her late husband's boat Elizabeth for him to use in the race. ("Live Together, Die Alone")  ("Flashes Before Your Eyes")

Trivia

  • A race webpage exists at widmorerace.com
  • The race was organized by The International Open Ocean Racing Association.
  • The race may be a reference to the reality tv show called "Lost", where competitors raced in teams around the world. [1]
  • The quote on the back of the "Notice of Race" book is an excerpt from a quote about the Whitbread Race of 1973-74, now renamed the Volvo Ocean Race:

There was a mass of spectator craft out in the Solent - that came as a
surprise. We were not expecting so many people and it made it difficult
to steer especially since there was no marshalling to speak of. We almost
ran down a rubber dinghy, but managed somehow to avoid it at the last

(Redirected to Subspecies article)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The term subspecies refers to a biologically distinct subdivision of a biological species. The Y'bith, for example, were a subspecies of the Bith species. While obviously similar to other Bith, they differed in their weaker eyesight, more sensitive skin, thicker bones, stronger hands and feet, and ductile mouth structures.[1]

A related term was race. While members of different races within a species were capable of interbreeding and producing viable offspring, members of different species generally could not. In casual discourse, however, the term "race" would often be used where species would be technically correct (especially when referring to different sentient species.)[2]

In addition, it was often difficult to tell if a population was a race, a subspecies, or a distinct species, and the division was often arbitrary or cultural. The Theelin, for example, were capable of interbreeding with baseline Humans, but were referred both as a race[3] and as a distinct species.[4]
