Source Material

This system draws on lots of different fan fictions within the Fallout: Equestria universe, in addition to the Fallout series games and, of course, the show itself.  To better aid in your understanding and perhaps explain a little bit of why the rules seem... obtuse or needlessly complex at times, this page has links to all of the source material I use and integrate into the RPG system. 

Links are listed chronologically by their start date (a.k.a. date that their first chapter posted).  Failing that information, I just guessed; apologies in advance if they're not in quite the right order.  I've listed the title for each that the author posted, despite the inconsistencies in syntax and colon placement between works.  I've marked those that are not currently regularly updating with an [H] and those that are completed entirely with a [C].

Familiarity with the source material may aid your understanding. 

(Currently) Referenced Fan Fiction Listing:
Fallout: Equestria, by Kkat - The one that started it all.  [C]
Fallout: Equestria - Project Horizons, by Somber
Fallout: Equestria: New Beginnings, by Illushia [H]
Fallout Equestria: Pink Eyes, by Mimezinga [C]
Fallout Equestria: Misfits, by DancingOnTheAshes [H]
Fallout: Equestria - Anywhere but Here, by StonerShy [C/H]
Fallout: Equestria: Murky Number Seven, by Fuzzy
Fallout Equestria: Heroes, by No One
Fallout Equestria: Treasure Hunting, by  Hnetu

I have directly referenced each of the above stories in at least one portion of the system settings and rules as a guideline.  Most frequently, I've referenced perks from these fics, but there are also hindrances, traits, and spells pulled from one or more of these stories.  The magic system in particular is derived most heavily from the works of Kkat, Somber, Dancing and Illushia, with heaviest emphasis on Kkat and Somber's stories. Cybernetics right now is based heavily on No One's story in combination with the systems available in the Fallout games. 

If you're curious, I'm also planning on reading through:
Fallout Equestria: Memories, by TheBobulator
Fallout Equestria: Dark Shores, by SwimmingEagle
Fallout: Equestria - Homecoming, by MisterClacky

Fallout Equestria x Wild Arms: Trigger to Tomorrow, by Thatguyvex
Fallout Equestria: New Roam, by Delvius
(I'm not sure if I'll eventually end up referencing any of these in the system yet.)

...and Celestia and Luna help me, I'm going to eventually try to find that Metro 2033/Fallout Equestria Crossover fic again.  Otherwise I'm going to be forced to write my own, and that will be a  scary thing.  

Fallout Reference Material is generally taken from here:
NukaPedia: The Fallout Wiki - I avoid the Van Buren, BoS and Project V13 pages (except for item references, because they're usually useful and often hilarious) simply because of their non-canonical status.

Some reference material and ideas are also drawn from Metro 2033 and the Deadlands: Hell on Earth role playing game system, though these are very minor.  

My Little Pony Reference Material is taken directly from the episodes themselves.  I don't mess about with wikis when I can go and watch pastel colored ponies defeat threats to Equestria directly. 

Further questions on source material can be asked in the comments or by contacting me directly.
