A Fallout game set in the Pacific Northwest would offer some terrain variety to a series overflowing with radioactive desert

I hope you guys aren't sick of posts like this, because my ideal fallout setting would be the Pacific Northwest. I think the PNW would be an interesting setting because it's so different from the landscapes we're accustomed to in the Fallout series. Rather than a vast empty desert upon which nothing grows, the wasteland of this game would be verdant forest teeming with mutant life. This landscape is inhospitable to humans, and as such what people remain stay close to cities. Large population centers, genuine cites, make up the vast majority of human settlement. In this fallout there are cities, and then there is wasteland, there is almost no non-urban human dwelling. What few towns fight through their daily hardships in the dense forests have become insular and entrenched in their strange ways, hostile to outlanders and making pacts with forces deep in the forest.

*The Forest* is the dominant wasteland terrain in this game, acting as the open desert in earlier instalments. The trees and soil are all irradiated, so that even being in these forests gives the player some dose of radiation. Because of this few venture into the woods, and few know what tread upon the glowing moss. The only true city in this part of the map is Victoria. Once a thriving trade community, Victoria has gone silent. No one knows what has become of Victoria or her people, but the answers may be borne on the voices that carry through the trees. The most dangerous part of the game world, comparable to FO4's Glowing Sea, is the Olympic Peninsula. Already intensely rugged before the war, *the peninsula* is a hostile land of nuclear jungle and otherworldly forces. Among the high peaks, and in the deep glens, bizarre and terrible monsters tread, and to venture there is a fools errand.

While the west of the map is dominated by inhospitable wilderness, the east of the map is where the cities of game lay. A part of Fallout I've always loved is that the communities feel like places people actually live in. People go to bars, eat in restaurants, and generally do more than just survive. In the far south of the map we have Portland. Portland is the largest of the Oregon city states, many of whom have already joined the NCR. Portland's status as an independent entity is contentious, as many see joining the NCR to be the surest route to true security. North of Portland we have Cascadia, a lose confederation made up of the cities of Tacoma, Everett, and Seattle. This confederacy is loosely con

Scenario: Lab Explosion with Radioactive Debris and a Fluorine Fire

I was watching this video covering the features of a fire engine by Donut Media and it got me wondering about hypothetical situations and the training simulations you guys run to stay at your best. With this in mind, I thought it might be interesting to ask some firefighters on reddit about an especially difficult scenario involving not only radiation but also a fluorine fire.

Disclaimer: I am a civilian and only have some scientific knowledge so please bear with me.

**Scenario:**An accident has occurred at a local laboratory causing an explosion. The government-mandated safety guidelines for this type of experiment have not been followed. Radioactive iron, graphite, steel, glass, insulation, plumbing, and lab equipment has been scattered all over the inside of laboratory 5 with debris scattered onto the exterior as well. The apparatus that exploded had Chlorine Trifluoride ( ClF3) and Uranium 234 inside it. The auto-shut-off features did not work and the reaction got so out of hand that the apparatus burst open, spraying its supply of ClF3 all over the place as well as bits of the uranium.

5 different fire stations, including yours, have been called to respond this incident. EMS and Hazmat are en route.

  • EMS Eta: 8 min 15 sec
  • Hazmat Eta: 12 min 23 sec
  • Your Eta: (On scene)
  • FD 1 Eta: 6 min 40 sec
  • FD 2 Eta: 16 min 34 sec
  • FD 3 Eta: 30 min 57 sec
  • FD 4 Eta: 25 min 23 sec

Assets:

  • Normal pumper truck
  • Normal ladder truck
  • Proper equipment for each vehicle and crew member
  • Fire Department Ambulance
  • Fire Helitack Deployment optional (45 min Eta if called in)
  • 30 person crew of fire department personnel trained to handle radioactive hazards and chemical hazards awaiting your orders.

Victims:

  • John Smith
    • 3rd Degree burns on right hand, arm, shoulder, and right side of neck
    • Severe Radiation burns on face
    • Unconscious
  • Maggie Dodger
    • 2nd degree burns on face, neck, and torso
    • Mild Radiation burns on back
  • Dr. Helen Miller
    • Dead, mangled and burnt body located near apparatus.
  • Glen Potter
    • Fluorine gas poisoning
    • Amputated left arm and left leg.
    • Unconscious.
  • Alex Masters
    • Currently immolated from Fluorine fire
    • Panicking.
  • Minor Victims: x12
    • 1st degree burns x4
    • smoke inhalation x10
    • Hyperthermia: x3
    • Panicking: x9

Staten Island: radioactive park contamination spreading - possibility throughout NYC with waterways.

submission statement :

I know a lot of jokes can be had at Staten Island expense, I'm writing about a serious matter, and hoping whomever reading this might be interested to read a report made by the national park service, and hopefully compelled to sign a petition to expand testing and expedite the clean up.

background:

federal parkland gateway great kills park has been closed in part for over a decade, after the finding of radioactive and other hazardous material in the soil. A report made in 2017, which has not seen any press suggests the contamination could be spreading to other areas outside the park. Including other parts of NYC, when contamination is released through waterways.

excerpt : 5.4.1. Potential Receptors

" . Potential human and ecological receptors may also be exposed to sediment generated from Site surface runoff to Site surface water bodies (drainage channels) and sediment transported to adjacent surface water bodies including Great Kills Harbor, Lower New York Bay, and Raritan Bay. "

more Staten Island specific excepts regarding spread include :

  • Rain and flooding is potentially spreading radioactive and hazardous material to neighboring communities, groundwater, and areas used for swimming, boating and fishing.
  • Specifically notes off site residents, especially residents within 200 feet of Gateway GreatΒ Kills Park to be "potential receptors" of any spreading contamination.

The full report can be found here :

https://www.nps.gov/gate/learn/management/upload/2017-09-01-Draft-Final-HSA-RS.pdf

If you are moved to help test where contamination might be spreading, and help put pressure to get this park cleaned up and open please consider sighing this petition.

Was the Chernobyl graphite radioactive due to induced radioactivity?

Hi

Just watched HBO's Chernobyl series for the 2nd time (wow that is some good TV) and I was a bit puzzled about why the graphite blocks were so radioactive.

Is it simply because they were coated in fission products, or were did they become radioactive themselves as a result from induced radiation from being present in the core?

I'm wondering the same about things like the 'Chernobyl claw'. Is that still radioactive because of induced radioactivity while it was working near the exposed core?

Thanks
