Welcome to Far Harbor
Far Harbor is a 18+ RPG that features loose stats, perks (and the ability to gain more) and a profile application. Don't worry if your knowledge of Fallout isn't extensive! Our docs cover the most important points and we'll be happy to answer any questions you might have about the world.

On Far Harbor, we like to focus on the oddness of a post-apocalyptic future where technology is as diverse as having synthetic life and guns made of wood pailings. Ghouls, super mutants, humans and synths all have a place in The Island. If you're looking for a place to explore a world blasted by radiation

. . . welcome home

Super mutants have been discovered on The Island after a disasterous expedition to find somewhere for the ghouls to establish an indepedent settlement. Meanwhile, Far Harbor was attacked by anglers, injuring many and placing additional strain upon the town's only physician.

I have installed the new "Pipboy" theme! It introduces the ability to display what items your character commonly carries (change this in the UserCP). If you run into issues, be sure to PM Kit the Human.

We've also switched to profile applications! Pending Users can now edit all of their details. You can find out about the process here.

Introduction

Far Harbor is a relaxed community of people who enjoy the Fallout games. We enjoy telling a story and characters who support the telling of an interesting story. We love reading about the ghoul who remembers the bombs falling and paints his memories, selling them to any human who wanders Acadia. Or the human at the Nucleus who sneaks Rad-X to the converted Children, terrified that one day their little operation will be found out.

After all, characters are people and people are you. What makes you interesting are your hopes and fears, how you overcame your hardships and how those have moulded you into a fallible human being with hobbies, friends and pain in the ass colleagues who are just so stupid. If you want to explore humanity and what it means to be human in a radioactive future where the living Pre-War humans are ghouls and robots can be heartbreakingly human, this forum is for you.

Don't worry. We do silly too.
