This talk page is only for discussing improvements to the page "Ronto."

Like the Erie Stretch, you barely hear about this town. Does anybody else think it would be nice to visit this place in future Fallout 3 DLC?

I think Fallout 4 will be set there. Fat Man Spoon 23:43, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

In Canada? No way. This sounds much more like a DLC-type location, but not a full game in the series. I'm sure all of these locales (Ronto, the Erie Stretch, the Commonwealth, the rumored Point Look) wouldn't be as big or interesting by themselves as the Capital Wasteland. Who knows, Bethesda may surprise us and make one of these regions a Shivering Isles-sized expansion, or just save them all as DLC for Fallout 4. In any case, these are no more than names and we'll have to leave ourselves at the mercy of the devs to make them reality. -- Commdor /{Talk} 20:50, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
I just want to go to Canada. Anyway, how would you get to Canada from the Capital Wasteland? Fat Man Spoon 21:35, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
An excruciating foot journey across hundreds of miles of inhospitable radioactive wasteland? Airplane? Well, if the people of The Pitt know about Ronto, I'd assume there's a connection of kind between them, or some roundabout trade route that links The Pitt to a dozen other as yet unmentioned settlements and then on to the north. The possibilities are limited only by our minds (and the devs' budget and writing staff; fans should get the chance to elaborate on cannon too). -- Commdor /{Talk} 20:46, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Our safety is the envy of the Capital Wastes? Edit

You gotta be kidding me. The Capital Wasteland is probably the most dangerous place so far in Fallout lore. -- 03:40, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

That's why he said "the envy." As in, the Capital Wastes envies the safety of the Pitt. --Solbur 02:52, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
HAHAHAHAHA, you've OBVIOUSLY never been in the desert between the coast and New Reno. Let me tell you, Capital Wasteland is fucking kindergarten compared to what happens in that stretch of sand. That Furry Bastard 08:23, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

ONly diffrence is that on the west coast the muties (among other things) are pretty tough when faced in groups,on the east cost however(capital wasteland) you can clear out the mall with a 10mm pistol.The vault dweller must be turnign in his grave by now Werewolfhell 09:32, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

He's spinning so fast a wormhole has formed. That Furry Bastard 11:01, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Does that explain why when i walk around a cemetary i fall through the ground/Oh wait,its becuase fallout 3 couldnt prevent itself from being overglitched even it had an "Unglitch" button Werewolfhell 15:03, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Who else likes the idea of Ronto, I mean A: A Canadian City thriving and B: The only part of the Fallout series is Canada being annexed even :P(As you can guess I'm Canadian. Well what I'm asking is who else would like to see a Fallout game in Canada, personally I'd be estatic. Also as the one guy said below me or under that they'd probably make it a DLC option, I'd prefer a full game but like Sawyer's dream of a pre "resource wars" Fallout game doesn't really matter to me as long as it happens any shape or form/ So why does anyone else think?

Validity Edit

It might be likely, but there is no actual in-game evidence Ronto is Toronto. The page should reflect this. BillyOcean 01:02, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

That's right! For all we know(though don't count on it,) Ronto could be a thriving community that spawned from the ashes of the Great War, and a half-ruined road sign had the letters "RONTO-17 KM" on it. "Oh, hey thats a unique name. Lets prop the sign up and call this place '17 KM'." "You friggin moron, thats terrible. How about 'Ronto'?" And thus Ronto city was born. And it's location and benefits could have caused humans and possibly ghouls to flock to the newfound city, and now it's sort of at the point like the NCR was in it's fledgling state several decades prior. I'm sort of rambling now. But it could have simply like Arefu's name origin, which came from a sign that said CarefuL on it. Or it could be purely coincidental. We saw Pittsburg shortened to Pitt and the location of Pittsburg relative to the location of Toronto. Those to reputable facts could have caused our brains make a subconcious connection that Ronto is either Toronto, Ohio or Toronto, Ontario. Anonymous 14:51, March 22, 2011

Though there might not be validity to the discussion of where Ronto is, we could speculate, and in turn figure it out. Consider the evidence of Ronto. The pitt is in Ronto, Ashur wouldnt say it was "the envy of ALL of Ronto" if it wasnt a small part of Ronto. The Pitt has its own world map, as its not a part of the capitol wasteland, Like all the other DLC. Also, look at the environment of the pitt. Its a very big steel mill, polluted air without the radiation from when the bombs dropped. So, Ronto could very well be Toronto in canada, and it probably is, considering canada is mentioned a few times throughout random encounters in the capitol wasteland.

Toronto, Ohio? Edit

I read this here and it made me curious, after a quick search, I found the Wikipedia article on it. Toronto, Ohio has a population of about 5,200 people in 2000. It was founded sometime near American Civil War times(1860's). But It makes more sense that they would be referencing to Toronto, Canada. Not A tiny community on the banks of the Ohio. I realize it does have some pull, considering proximity and such. But that's just about all. Toronto, Canada was still a very large city in those times, although their population boom happened around the 70's or so.

I can see how it would fit colloquially, but it makes more sense to assume Toronto, Canada

And people can assume it's Toronto, Canada if they want to. I even assume that, and I'm the one who made the Toronto, Ohio edit in the first place. But we can't be absolutely sure where Ronto is, and because of that, until we do know it's best to let people know what the two most likely options are. Toronto, Canada because it was a major pre-war city and Toronto, Ohio because it's extremely close to The Pitt. XXAntibodyXx 08:59, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
It could really go either way; the influence of each on The Pitt could be similar since their respective populations are likely proportional to their respective distances. Also, Toronto, Canada isn't a whole lot farther away from Pittsburgh than Washington DC is, so I feel it's more feasible than I initially thought when reading the article. --HunterZ 01:02, May 2, 2011 (UTC)


Could we not reword that stuff and put it in the notes section? It'd be helpful and add further knowledge if we gave examples of where it could be. Toronto, Canada and Toronto, Ohio are the two suspects of where Ronto is, and they seem plausible, it's worth mentioning them as being areas it could refer to.

It's speculation. There are many locations named Toronto across the US, assuming that "Ronto" even refers to a place named "Toronto" in the first place. The reader can decide for themselves where they think it may be. --Skire (talk) 00:55, December 25, 2013 (UTC)
