Which Post-Apocolyptic World would you choose to live in?
« on: December 10, 2012, 05:34:19 PM »

I was reading this article the other day that described the Fallout series as bleak -- and true, it's pretty seriously fucked all over. But as far as shitholes go, it's not really all that bad. Despite all of its lawlessness and corruption, it's pretty clear that inevitably the social contract is slowly taking hold and civility will triumph over chaos. And, you know, if I had to live in a fictional hellhole, the Fallout world wouldn't be that bad. Well, assuming Caesar doesn't beat the NCR.

Third Earth was intended as post-apocalyptic.  As the name implies, Len Starr intended for the backstory to be that the human race wiped itself out with nuclear weapons, managed to rebuild civilization, and then went and did it again.  But, like many of Starr's ideas, it was never realized after he was swept aside and replaced as head writer a dozen or so episodes in.

There are two surviving snippets of dialogue that imply that origin, though: as the Mutants are first flying over the planet, they note that there appears to have once been an advanced civilization here but now it's in ruins, and (later in the same episode if I'm not mistaken) Mumm-Ra refers to "a time when this was still First Earth".

Third Earth's probably not as much fun as Ooo, but does rival it for the sheer amount of crazy random shit that crops up 'round every corner.  Cavemen!  Warrior women who live in trees!  Robot bears!  A hairy-faced knight who rides a giant cat!  Mole men!  And so on.
