Creation Questionnaire

My friend, Evil Tim, is running a game in the Fallout universe. If you don’t know, it’s a post-apocalyptic wasteland survival kind of setting. During character creation, we took the G.O.A.T. — Generalized Occupational Aptitude Test. It’s a multiple-choice personality quiz that helps you determine your skill loadout in the video game and in our tabletop game, it determined our starting class in the d20 Modern rules. We answered the questions as our characters-to-be would. Then, he told us our results. It was fun and a perfect fit for the campaign. And I started to wonder what else you could do with the idea.

But presenting a realistic feel for your unrealistic setting can be difficult if you didn’t happen to ground your imagination with a foundational major in Ancient History. Luckily, we live in an age of digital knowledge! Travel with us through the Video Village to find educational and entertaining examples of how things used to be.
