THE BITCH THAT MAKES THE BISCUITS
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This is obviously not a comprehensive list and if you have any questions that aren't already answered here, feel free to reply to this thread with the question and we'll answer it promptly.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE MUTANTS?
If you've ever played the video game series Fallout, think of a Feral Ghoul essentially. if you haven't, think of like an emaciated human so ravaged by disease they're barely recognizable and totally hostile, feral like animals almost. They're not dead, that's an important thing to remember. Mutants aren't zombies but you could somewhat equate them to those fuckers in the 28 Day/Weeks movies. Not dead but cannibalistic and savage.
CAN I PLAY A MUTANT?
Nope, we're not allowing that simply because there'd be no point. Their minds have basically disintegrated into nothing. You can totally include them in your backstory or whatever, but your character can't ACTUALLY be one.
IS THERE TECHNOLOGY?
Somewhat, yes. This one is more circumstantial and depends entirely on who and where your character is. The internet is basically long gone, but there are working computer terminals out there - they're just extremely rare. I mean, finding any piece of machinery that still works along with electricity to power it is an incredibly rare occurrence no matter what. Cellphones no longer have signal or anything like that but if they can be powered and they are still capable of operation, you could probably play Angry Birds or something if it was downloaded onto the phone before the war.
ARE WEAPONS EASY TO FIND?
Again, this is circumstantial. Weapons are relatively easy to find but it's finding ammo or a knife-sharper that's a bitch. The Military has a lot of guns, so do most raider clans and settlements but quality depends outside of the wall. The revolution has guns and ammo as well, though not much. What they do have was either sold to them illegally or they scavenged it.
CAN MY CHARACTER HAVE PSIONIC POWERS?
No, I'm afraid not. Lie With Your Bones is more about regular people trying to survive in a world that's fallen down around them. It's about morbid weakness and all that jazz so telekinesis and shit doesn't really fly, ya' feel?
WHAT'S THE CURRENCY?
Before the war, the global economy basically smashed into it's fucking face because the American dollar lost so much value that it ceased to be the World Reserve Currency. After the war, the dollar became essentially useless. You can't even burn the damn things really, so what the fuck is the point? The world now operates on a barter system essentially. Stuff for other stuff, sex for stuff, information for stuff and a big one is bullets for stuff. In Vegas, there are also ration cards that're used as a sort of currency. Those only hold value within the city but given that the city is centrifugal to everyone in the Mojave, most people will accept them in case they ever have to go to Vegas.
WHAT ARE POST TAGS?
Plenty of sites out there have tags that operate similar to basic codes you use on any forum, such as bolding, underlining and
