“All hell breaks loose. There’s eye-popping flashes of light everywhere and ear-ripping bangs as the bombs go off. Cities evaporate. Infrastructures crumble. Everywhere, huge mushroom-shaped clouds tower up into the sky. All electricity goes out because of electro-magnetic effects. And of course, many die: according to even the mildest scenario’s, hundreds of millions die instantaneously as the nukes go boom.
But you — you survive all that. Better take shelter: for the next days, it will rain highly radioactive fall-out particles only. For almost three days and three nights in a row, it will rain radioactivity in a region several hundreds of kilometers around each impact site. And to be honest: it’s best you stayed indoors for a whole year, patiently waiting until radioactivity levels finally begin to drop.”//exitmundi
The Brotherhood of Steel: The Brotherhood of Steel (BOS) is a techno-religious organization, with roots in the US military and government-sponsored scientific community from before the war. The BOS is mostly composed of the descendents of those military officers, soldiers, and scientists, but aside from some outlanders among their ranks, the BOS is as close to pure strain humanity (prime normals) as you’re going to find outside of a Vault.
The ranks of the BOS is generally recognized as being composed of the best and the brightest… which means the BOS is a really small organization, at least compared to NCR. They make up for this with their frightening arsenal of pre-war and post-war technology: They have laser weapons, power armor, surgical enhancements, combat implants, and a squad of Brotherhood Knights have the ability to erase an entire town from a map without a scratch….
The BOS is divided into different ranks: Initiates are trainees who are expected to perform well enough in the training process to be promoted to Squires. After proving themselves, Squires are promoted to Knights. After many years of service and experience, the best Knights are promoted to Paladins – the pinnacle of the Brotherhood military. Paladins who survive to their later years become Elders, and they number among the Brotherhood ruling council.
It is also possible to serve the Brotherhood as a Scribe. Scribes are responsible for copying the ancient technologies, maintaining the current technology and even experimenting with new weapons and other useful devices. Scribes rarely leave the safety of the BOS bunkers, but they are sometimes called into the field to examine a piece of technology or perform a task beyond the skills of the Brotherhood soldiers.”//The Fallout Bible
” Your best hope of surviving a nuclear war in this century is self-help civil defense – knowing the basic facts about nuclear weapon effects and what you, your family, and small groups can do to protect yourselves. Our Government continues to downgrade war-related survival preparations and spends only a few cents a year to protect each American against possible war dangers. During the 10 years or more before the Strategic Defense Initiative (Star Wars) weapons can be invented, developed and deployed, self-help civil defense will continue to be your main hope of surviving if we suffer a nuclear attack.”//Cresson Kearny
“A large nuclear bomb bursting at ground level would throw up about a million tonnes of dust and block out a large fraction of the sunlight and the sun’s heat from the earth’s surface. The earth would quickly become dark and cold. Temperatures would drop by something in the region of 10-20ºC. It would take months for the sunlight to get back to near normal. The drop in light and temperature would quickly kill crops and other plant and animal life while humans would be affected by very large-scale malnutrition and disease.
Bombs bursting over cities and surface installations, like factories or oil stores and refineries, would cause huge fires and fire-storms that would send huge amounts of smoke into the air.
Here’s a highly interesting and informative computer program Nukefix designed for analyzing and fixing the [nuclear weapons] problem. You can download Nukefix and perform your own analysis of the nuclear weapons problem.”//copperwiki
“A few years after a full-scale nuclear exchange, nothing will be left by the rats and the roaches.”//Costik
“In sum, no one really knows how a nuclear winter would look. It’s a hypothetical set of circumstances. However, scientists all do seem to agree that climactic change would certainly occur because of a nuclear war ( even a small, regional conflict ). Therefore, as with anything, you need to assess whether you believe we’re on the doorstep of a possible nuclear conflict. If so, best start getting ready now.”//secrets of survival
