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.

This is the canon timeline of Far Harbor. Please note that this forum is not strictly following the canon timeline from the Fallout 4 Add On. We have tweaked the timeline to suit our needs.

The Great War starts....and ends.

The Great War starts and ends. The United States, China and USSR deployed nuclear warheads on each other's countries. The exchange lasted about two years. After the last warhead fell, the world fell into a nuclear holocaust and civilisation crumbled.

The rains are 'ere!

A great downfall deluges most parts of the world. This rain is black and undrinkable. Tainted by soot, ash and radioactive elements. The deluge destroys many plants and species of animal.

DiMA and Nick Valentine are created.

DiMA and Nick are experiments by the Institute. They desired to see if synths could be capable of independent thinking and judgment, and how their personalities would develop. Nick is an example of a synth who was given a personality matrix copied from a human. DiMA however, was allowed to develop his personality based on experience. The pair escaped together and then separated after Nick became violent towards DiMA.

DiMA arrives to The Island.

DiMA arrives to the Island and finds the submarine pen. He sets up a base there, using the computers to expand his storage capacity.

The Institute searches for Synthetic skin.

Doctor Frederik commences working with FEV samples in order to create synthetic skin. This is despite the objections of other senior members in the BioScience division of the Institute. To this end, the Institute abducted people from the Commonwealth and submerged them into a vat of the Institute's modified FEV. Their mutations were tracked and investifations with successful mutations monitored to ensure survivability. They were then tagged and discarded.

The Fog expands.

The Fog expands over the Island, slowly blanketing it and forcing the people of the Island closer to the Mariner's port.

Research into Synthetic skin ceases.

The research team concluded that the organic synth project could not proceed despite perfecting two FEV strains. Radiation-induced hereditary damage was proving too much of an obstacle.

Shaun is acquired by the Institute.

The research was picked up again with the acquisition of Shaun who possessed undamaged pre-War genetics. This proved to be the key in creating organic synths and production of third gen synths commenced.

Broken Mask.

A third gen synth is planted in Diamond City. The infiltrator malfunctions and murders several people before being killed itself.

Faraday finds DiMA.

Faraday escaped the Institute and travelled towards Far Harbor. He found DiMA and worked hard to ensure that DiMA could not only continue operation, but expanding his functionality.

The Children of Atom leave Megaton

Two expeditions left the Children of Atom, one led by Mother Isolde, settled in the Crater of Atom in the Glowing Sea. The second group that was led by Confessor Martin and Grand Zealot Tektus, eventually settled in Far Harbor.

The Children of Atom arrive on The Island.

They live in Far Harbor for five years but the people are mistrustful of their beliefs and they uneasily co-exist.

DiMA gives The Nucleus to the Children of Atom.

The Children are driven out of Far Harbor and find the submarine pen. Confessor Martin befriends DiMA and after some months, DiMA leaves the Nucleus to the Children of Atom.

Acadia is founded.

Fog Condensers are added to the Hull.

Faraday develops and rolls out the fog condensers for Far Harbor. In return for his labor, DiMA expects Far Harbor to allow synths to pass through Far Harbor, without harassment. This does not come to pass. Some months later, DiMA kidnaps and kills Captain Avery, replacing her with a synth who is unaware of her synthetic nature.


At the end of the year, the ghouls discover Acadia. DiMA welcomes them to his settlement and they commence building a home.

Our story starts.

  • An attack by anglers on Far Harbor leave many people, including Ally, injured. Far Harbor's only physician, Liam, struggles with the work load.
  • Copernicus, Blu and Joan travel south west to find a new home for ghouls. Instead, they find two super mutants with a mutant hound. This is the first time they have been seen on the Island and the party does not know if more super mutants can be found. Joan is injured in the attack.
  • Joan and Gabriel hatch a plan to steal from The Nucleus.
