Redding is a mining town in Fallout 2, located south of Vault City. There are two major mining companies in Redding, as well as a saloon, a sheriff and a doctor. The mayor of Redding, Ascorti, runs an establishment called Ascorti's Ace casino. Redding mines gold for shipment to New Reno and the New California Republic, and the miners are some of the largest consumers of Reno's drugs.

The town is a collection of wooden buildings, and can be a wild and wooly place. The police force is small, relying on the Sheriff's charisma to maintain peace and order; miners are a rough, hardened bunch that can cause a lot of trouble; while three powers of the wasteland seek to dominate Redding and bring it into their fold.

Political Relevance

Although Redding may appear unassuming it has great economic clout. Redding is northern California's primary producer and distributor of gold. Being the center of gold mining several larger political factions have vollied for control of Redding to gain dominance in the gold trade. It is locked in the center of a power play between three major powerplayers: NCR, New Reno and Vault City. Sooner or later, the town will have to choose its allegiance, despite the fact that there's no perfectly good solution: proponents of New Reno claim it's the only way to keeping their autonomy, Vault City advocates claim it's the only city that can fully utilize Redding's potential and dismiss any worries that they might turn it into a slave labour camp while NCR sympathizers ignore the possibility that, in exchange for security and profits, Redding will be put under the NCR boot and turned into another splotch on its map.

Internal Politics

The primary political division in Redding exists over the growing drug issues and the future governance of Redding. The two large mining companies in Redding primarily dictate policy however they are divided by bitter hatred toward each other's policies. Marge LeBarge the owner of the Kokoweef Mine supports merging with the NCR. The Morningstar Mine run by "Dangerous" Dan McGrew is in favor of alliance with New Reno. The dispute often culminates in tensions and violence occasionally, usually down at the Malamute Saloon. In addition to the political division Reno is struggling to contain its drug problem and the law enforcement is taxed thin particularly after the sheriff had his leg accosted by a gecko. Further havoc is being sewn by a band of gangsters led by Frog Morton of the Morton Brothers. Mayor Ascorti is a questionable politician as well as apearing to be primarily a profiteer. His motives all seem to be generated by money as seen by his gambling hall and high rent demanded of impoverished elderly citizens.

Behind the scenes

  • The town of Redding is named after the real-life city of Redding, California, noted for its mining history.
  • This area heavily references the Robert W. Service poem "The Shooting of Dan McGrew", which described "Dangerous" Dan McGrew's demise in the Malamute Saloon. Apart from the title character and saloon, the area also features a woman named Lou.

Fallout 2 Restoration Project changes

  • It is now possible to cure Fannie of her jet addiction.
  • It is now possible to make Fannie OD on jet.
  • Support beams in the mines are now destructible.
  • Killing all the miners prevents there from being a good ending for Redding.
