Islander's Almanac is a perk magazine in the Fallout 4 add-on Far Harbor that gives the player ranks of the Islander's Almanac perk.


The Islander's Almanac is a series of post-War magazines detailing various tips and tricks to better survive the Island's natural hazards. Due to the bonus it confers as well as its overall visual style, it can be considered Far Harbor's equivalent of the Wasteland Survival Guide. Collecting all of the almanacs grants the perk of the same name.
