October 23, 2077... The Day of the Great War. The day the world went to hell.
After the world was busy fighting to control the few resources that remained, after China
invaded Anchorage and after gas prices skyrocketed, the world couldn't take it
any longer, and the Great War began. Nobody knows who fired first, and those who heard the sirens overhead believed it to be a false alarm, little did they know the planet was about to become a barren
wasteland. The Vaults were shut, and in just two hours, the Great War caused
indescribable damage to everything in existence. More energy was released
in the first moments of the Great War than all of the previous human
conflicts in the history of the world combined. Entire mountain ranges
were created as the ground buckled and moved under the strain of
the cataclysmic pressure produced by numerous, concentrated atomic
Rivers and oceans around the world were contaminated with the resulting radioactive
fallout released by the nuclear weapons used by all sides, and
the climate changed horrifically. All the regions of the earth suffered from a
single, permanent season once the initial dust blasted into the atmosphere by the
nuclear explosions had settled - a scorching, radioactive desert summer.
Around a week after the initial nuclear explosions, rain started to fall;
however, none of it was drinkable. The rain was black; tainted with soot, ash,
radioactive elements produced by the nuclear explosions and various other
contaminants produced by nuclear weapons. This rain marked the start of the
terrible fallout that marked the true, permanent destruction caused by the
Great War. The rain lasted four long days, killing thousands of species that
had survived the initial destruction of the bombs, be they animal, plant or
micro-organisms. Those few living things, human, animal or plant, that survived
after the rain ended were left to live in the now barren wasteland that had
spread across the Earth, where nearly all pre-War plant life had died either in
the initial explosions or from the intense radiation produced by the fallout.
Thanks to the efforts of Robert House, most of the city of Las Vegas,
Nevada and the Hoover Dam remained intact, and many buildings still have
electricity as of 2281. In the pre-War era, about 20 years before the Great
War, House predicted when the bombs would fall. In the meantime he installed
defenses such as laser turrets on the roof of the Lucky 38 Casino, which
destroyed most of the incoming Chinese ballistic missiles before they hit Las
Vegas. In time, the remains of Las Vegas came to be known as New Vegas.
P.S - Most of this came from the Fallout wiki, but my next parts are mainly wrote by me.
