Huddle around the campfire
Are you the type of wastelander that's been living under a rock in fear of being eaten alive by radroaches and molerats? Looking for a place to catch up on what's going on in the wasteland around you? Or maybe you're just looking for a little company that actually has skin and functional bowels? If so, grab a chair or wench, and join us around the campfire! Just be warned: you never know what you might find and hear in this bootlegging sanctuary of ours.

TALK - What's the gossip around Nukapedia?

An old Russian buddy of mine out California way has made amazing progress towards the Core Region's current prosperity. Recognizing his work is the easiest way to show your appreciation.

Three-Dog is name widely known across the expansive wastes. Many love him, and many hate him. But there's no denying this DJ has an uncanny ability to show up in areas of importance. Alleged sightings have recently placed Three-Dog at Boston, but the man himself has left us guessing with on his activity outside of his comfy abode at GNR.

Looking for that perfect excuse to climb out of your corpse-riddled hovel and party a bit with the cool cats of the wastes? A bit of an old-world revival, QuakeCon is making a return this year August 1st-4th. So bring your own RobCo terminal, and join in on the fun!

It appears that the community out Nukapedia way still hasn't come to consensus over their relations with nearby communities Why not head on down to the council hall and throw in your opinion while you still have a chance?

We're always looking for more music to work with to improve morale around the Nukapedia community. If you have any expertise in that area, make sure to speak up.

Not too long ago, the council members made some new laws that everyone should make sure to become familiar with.

Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to Wasteland, a post-apocalyptic game involving a nuclear holocaust that took place in 1998, in relation to an impact event involving a cluster of meteors that sparked a global nuclear war. On the day of the cataclysm, a company of U.S. Army engineers were in the desolate south-western desert constructing bridges in an area with a number of small survivalist communities and a newly-constructed federal death row prison with light industrial facilities. The soldiers sought shelter in the prison, expelled the inmates and invited nearby survivalists to join them shortly thereafter. This event formed the Desert Rangers, in the great tradition of the Texas and Arizona Rangers", to help other survivors in the desert and beyond it.

Wasteland 2 Beta
Looks like the Wasteland 2 Beta will be upon us soon like a wild pack of mole-rats. In October, potential candidates may begin to put their names forth, for the chance to experiment with the game, which is currently recorded as having all basic functionalities, being an almost finished product that needs testers to help polish the game up for its final release. Make sure to take advantage of this opportunity before it becomes too late!

Wasteland Podcast
Want the chance to hear Brian Fargo and Nathan Long shoot the bull? Through the Aftermath has been generous enough to provide us with this rare opportunity!

The Last of Us


The Last of Us follows the perspective of current survivalist and previous father Joel as the outbreak of a specialized strain of cordyceps renders the world asunder and threatens humanity with utter extinction. Merely trying to make it through life day by day, fate finds Joel and Tess, his partner in crime, through a series of events which leads to them escorting a young and infected, but immune Ellie, to a group known as the Fireflies; a resistance group looking to reverse the damage they caused with the rampant fungi.

The Last of Us - Comic Book
The Last of Us was not the beginning of Ellie's tale, nor was Joel and Tess always such a large part of her life. Before the events leading up to her eventual escape of the safe-zone, Ellie was a relatively normal girl exposed to unusual events and consequences. Interested? Head on over and check out the comic-book that inspired Ellie's later story.



Borderlands takes place on the frontier planet Pandora; a planet plagued by opportunistic weapons corporations, cutthroat research firms, and mutated psychos. Despite these short-comings and short-life spans of those that inhabit the lands, Pandora is widely trafficked and highly sought after by those looking for fame and fortune, due to the rumours of treasure vaults and Eridium deposits.

The End is 'Nigh?
Looking to catch the deal of a life-time now that the Borderlands 2 universe is wrapping up? Unfortunately for you, GearBox has stated that there will not be a second seasonal pass release for aspiring fans to take advantage of.

Final Breath
With Tiny Tina bringing the newest wave of Vault Hunter's stories to an end, comes the promise of an update to improve your experiences just that much more before the itch for a new game starts crawling up your spine. Keep a look out this Fall!



Black Mesa. The research facility that started it all, with an experiment in dimensional resonance going awry and changing the face of the Earth forever. With the hostile alien hybrids known as the Combine quickly converting the few survivors after 20 years of world domination, the only hope for humanity lies in the hands of a silent physicist known as Freeman, with the help of a rag-tag team of survivors and scientists.

Oculus Rift
Been keeping an eye out on the upcoming and innovative Oculus Rift? It appears that Valve has, as well, with Half-Life 2 looking to incorporate itself into the concept.

Half-Life has brought its fans countless mods that make the Half-Life experience just that much more breath-taking. For those of you familiar with Sven's co-op experience, you might find yourself interested in the fact that the mod has now been reborn as a standalone, free to download game on Steam. Definitely check out this jewel.

Gourmand of the Apocalypse
The Gourmand

Welcome to the Gourmand of the Apocalypse, a collaborative effort between the Strategic Nuclear Moose's patrons and the citizens out Nukapedia way to help bring you the knowledge to prepare extraordinary dishes with such ordinary ease, out of simple wasteland ingredients that would commonly be overlooked as unfit for eating.

The Gourmand of the Apocalypse might just be the perfect place for you to visit.

Welcome to the Gourmand
The recipes offered here are made from wasteland ingredients but these combinations have yet to appear in any Fallout game.

True Bloody Mary
Combine Blood pack(1) and Vodka(1), makes servings (1) Effects
To most consumers, the effects would be no more or less than separately consuming the individual ingredients. However, if one was to have either the Cannibal or Hematophage perks, the effect would be the same as drinking a Battle brew, but with zero chance of alcohol addiction.

Other interactions
A mixed True Bloody Mary has a resale value of 20 Bottle caps. However, unless the merchant also has the Cannibal or Hematophage perks, friendly non-player characters (excluding companions) will turn hostile just as if they witnessed an act of cannibalism.

The name True Bloody Mary has a loose connection to booth the TV show True Blood and the actual drink called a Bloody Mary that is made with vodka and tomato juice.
