Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game is a post-apocalyptic computer role-playing game that was developed and published by Interplay in 1997 and is the first game in the Fallout series. The game takes place in the year 2161 on the West Coast of what used to be the United States, particularly in California.
Ghouls are victims of a massive radiation poisoning which has turned them into decrepit, ragged, almost rotting, zombie-like mutants. Most known ghouls were created from vault dwellers living in Vault 12 under the city of Bakersfield (better known as Necropolis after the Great War). As part of the vast Vault Experiment Program, the Vault 12 door was designed not to close properly. Thus, massive amounts of radiation attacked those within the Vault, most of whom were turned into the current ghoul population. Generally, in the Fallout universe, massive exposure to radiation might cause humans to transform into ghouls.

|The Fallout world is not quite our own. It is an alternate reality which diverged from ours at some point after the second World War.
The base concept for the setting is the World of Tomorrow as imagined in the Golden Age of Science Fiction. This means that before the Great War, the Fallout world was more or less what the people of the 1940s and 1950s thought things would be like in 2077.
