Wasteland Journal - Entry 1 - My name is Tits Mcgee.
I have woken up into a nightmare beyond my wildest imagination. My world had been destroyed. My wife is a popsicle with a hole shot in her and my son has been taken by two people who are willing to steal a baby from it's mothers arms.
Let me start at the end......of the world....as we knew it.
My name is Tits Mcgee. My family was lucky/unlucky enough to be accepted into Vault 111. That same day Armageddon was unleashed upon the world. My family barely made it to the Vault in time. We actually saw a nuke hit before we were lowered into the Vault. If we had been lowered two seconds later there would have been nothing more then smoking corpses burnt into the elevator floor.
When we reached the bottom of the Vault's staff was waiting for us. I never got a chance to meet the people running the Vault. We were hurried into Vault 111 jump suits and were brought into a room full of opened pods. We were told to go into pods to be analyzed. That was a lie. Shortly after we all entered the pods the doors closed and the window began to freeze over. I slipped into unconsciousness.
I awoke still sealed in my the pod. I was groggy and disorientated. I could make out two people in front of my wife's pod. One was wearing a full contamination suit. The other looked like he belonged in a old biker gang movie. They opened her pod and tried to take Saun from her. She would not release him. The biker guy pointed a gun at her demanding that she release my son.......then he shot her......Suan still in her arms.......I couldn't do anything but watch. They took my son! They looked at me and mumbled something about having a spare before I slipped once again into unconsciousness.
I awoke once more to the pod opening up. I stumbled out and examined
my wife through the glass. I can't tell if shes dead or alive. I can't
access the Pods. They are malfunctioning. The more I explored the
computer files the more horrific my situation seemed to be. No one was
left alive in the Vault. All the other residents in the pods are dead.
The suffocated in them when life support failed. I don't know how I
survived. The status of my wife and her pod is unknown.
As I investigated the Vaults computer logs I found out the true motives of Vault-Tec and Vault 111. The Vault was never meant to save anyone. We were never supposed to wake up from those pods. It was a death trap from the start. They just wanted to study the long term affects on people being put in cryostasis. The staff knowing and seemingly gladly ushered us to our doom.
I wonder if any of the Vaults were meant to save anyone or were they all just someones sick science experiment.
Well the was no since in complaining about my situation to the staff because they were ether dead or gone. Things apparently went south in the Vault rather quickly after the doors were sealed. The staff was supposed to be allowed to leave after 180 days or after a "All Clear" signal was broadcasted. Even then we were supposed to remain in the pods to be remotely managed by Vault-Tec. Supply's were running low and after 180 days the Overseer of the Vault refused to let anyone leave. A mutiny accrued. I don't know how it ended but there are too few dead body's in the Vault to account for the staff so I have to assume some of the sons of bitches made it out.
I decided it was time to search for my son which meant escaping this place. As I worked my way to the Overseers office I found my way blocked by roaches. Roaches the size of a skateboards. The radiation must have effected them. I had to kill them with my bear hands. I never thought I would find myself punching a roach to death. Thankfully when I got to the Overseers office it was accessible.
The overseer's corpse lay just behind his desk. At least he got what was coming to him. If he had taken the laser rifle out of its case on the wall he may have been able to put up a fight but for whatever reason it remains locked in its case. I diddled the lock but only a master locksmith could pick that thing. Since there was no key I had to leave it behind. Through the console on his desk I was able to open the door so I could exit the Vault. I took the pistol off his desk and prepared to leave my wife behind.
As I was opening the Vault door I discovered another corpse with a Pip-boy next to it. How convenient. This thing will defiantly come in handy. With it I was able to access the door and open the Vault. I stepped once again onto the elevator. It seamed to me like I had just been there a short time ago.
I ascended into a ruined world.
