So now we have five different playable characters: a Ghoul, a Wastelander, a Supermutant, a Vault Dweller and a Brotherhood of Steel Outcast.

What other playable character types do you think would be fun to have in expansions?

Re: Other playable characters in expansions?
From New Vegas:
- A King Impersonator
- A Caravan owner
- Enclave deserter

+ 1 for the intelligent Deathclaw.

Beyond that... it is hard to think of a character worth of a miniature. Sure you may have a mini for the Courier or the Chosen one, but they are vault dwellers / wastelanders basically...

Maybe another idea would be to offer a system so someone can build a character at the beginning of the games with some traits/perks at cost of slower level up. But that is hard to say without the pdf of the rules...

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

A NCR Ranger would be great.

A mister handy/ Mr Gutsy. There is one of those as a companion in both Fallout 3 and 4.

I don’t think I’ve seen the minis or if I have I can’t recall, is this done as a raider? Because it would be cool to get some sort of raider miniature.

No, I think Wastelanders are those poor sods that are mostly unarmed, usually clothed in a few dirty rags, and often found trying to farm some patch of dust in the middle of nowhere…

I want a radscorpion with a top hat! I would pocket that mini and play him in every game.

Or maybe one of the Anville residents from F3.

Would an alien with a top hat be ok?

Is that supposed to be Andale? I didn't find anything when googling for Anville, but it did point me to Andale…

He probably ment Andale. But that would be just another wastelander, with the cannibal perk. Like Jamelrha said, these are mostly wastelanders. Sure an NCR character would be nice but the point of the game (I suppose) is that you start as a neutral character and you can later become a ranger if you want to.

But to throw something in: I want to be a Boomer

I hope by Anville Nathan meant Antville, and I hope by Antville he meant the AntAgonizer.

But yeah, he probably meant Andale. The greatest town in Virginia!!

Yep. Auto-correct for the loss.

Andale is the greatest town in Virgina. They're a notch above your common wastelanders.

Yup it is. You need to order the Space Special, but let someone else eat it.

I hope by Anville Nathan meant Antville, and I hope by Antville he meant the AntAgonizer.

And by AntAgonizer I hoped you meant Antagone...


...but then I guess we're veering slightly off of Fallout.

One of my favorite things to do is fly under the radar by doing the 'unarmed Child' act. Sure they might be a Wastelander but how many of those characters aren't? I'm thinking of 'Lucy' from Little Lamplight in F3 for the Girl or Bryan Wilks in Grayditch for the boy from the same game F3.

Well I don't get why there's the insights and the railroad but no Synths....

NCR Ranger, A legit brotherhood character, maybe Benny and Joshua Graham if they do a new vegas expansion.

You could have one for each faction, where they are ALWAYS with that faction and can't change Loyalty. That opens up Institute, Railroad, a "normal" Brotherhood of Steel (not Outcast), Enclave, and New California Republic Soldier/Ranger. Don't forget their isn't a Synth yet!

There's a token for being a Synth in the game - anyone but the Super Mutant could potentially wind up as one. I assume it gets used in some of the quests.

So there is 5 playable characters in the game that each have a starting S.P.E.C.I.A.L. token. That means there are two stats that aren't used as starting stats for characters. Those are Endurance and Charisma.

These are the start S.P.E.C.I.A.L. tokens in the board game.

Strength: Super Mutant
Perception: Ghoul
Endurance: ?
Charisma: ?
Intelligence: Brotherhood Outcast
Agility: Wastelander
Luck: Vault Dweller


It sounds quite logical that FFG will be having those two as starting stats for future characters. So what types of characters could work well with Endurance and Charisma for future expansions?
