The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (LXG)

Post by nemarsde »

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volumes 1 and 2, are written by Alan Moore and published by Titan Books. They are available from Amazon:

Volume 1 (free delivery)
Volume 2 (free delivery)

(Century 1910 and The Black Dossier are not relevant to this campaign, as in LXG: Post-Nuclear the world of the League changed in 1964 at the outbreak of World War III.)
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - Wikipedia wrote: Volume Two has an extensive appendix, most of which is filled with an imaginary travelers' account of the alternate universe the League is set in, called The New Traveler's Almanac. This Almanac is noteworthy in that it provides a huge amount (46 pages) of background information - all of which is taken from pre-existing literary works or mythology, a large majority of which is difficult to fully appreciate without an esoteric knowledge of literature. It shows the plot of the comic to be just a small section of a world inhabited by what appears to be the entirety of fiction.

In-continuity background can also be found on Wikipedia, but players do not need to know this as it's largely irrelevant.

Fallout

Post by nemarsde »

Fallout and Fallout 2 were developed by Black Isle Studios for Interplay, released on Windows PC. Fallout 3 was developed and published by Bethesda Softworks 10 years later and released on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and followed by a sequel more thematically similar to the original games, Fallout: New Vegas. These CRPGs are considered the core franchise, though several related titles have also been released. Fallout Tactics, a tactical RPG by Micro Forte, and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, an action game by Interplay, the only Fallout title for Xbox and PlayStation 2.

All Windows PC titles can be purchased from Amazon as collected editions.

Fallout Collection (free delivery)
Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (free delivery)
Fallout: New Vegas (free delivery)

Bethesda Softworks now own the rights to Fallout, though No Mutants Allowed is perhaps the longest established site dedicated to the franchise.
