    This is a Choose Your Own Adventure style game, with the emphasis on adventure. As with the Adventures of the Traveler that this is the spiritual successor to, this explores a Sunshine Wasteland created by BOTWAWKI. The main character is Charlotte Blackburn, a Waste Management Specialist from Vault 404, deep on the Floridian peninsula. She is setting out for adventurer, and whether she dies on the way or succeeds and acquires fame and fortune is up to you all.

    Well this is it. The Overseer has decreed that only a skeleton crew will remain at Vault 404 to keep the systems running. The rest of the Vault's population has moved to the town of Waverly, and you're out of a job. With no family left and nothing to lose, you've decided to set out and explore the Sunshine Wasteland, and maybe make your fortune.

    You are in Waverly. Waverly is a once-small settlement that originally boasted only slightly more than one hundred people. Now, over a thousand are crammed into the walls. The only dwellings have been overrun by improvised structures created by materials from Vault 404. Blue jumpsuits are everywhere, and the community has grown by leaps and bounds. Multiple bars have opened up, and liquor flows freely in the streets. It is a boom town in every sense of the word.

    1. Take a look around town for any jobs for a freelancer like yourself. (Intelligence)
    2. Head out for adventure!

    Option 2, what is the point of being an adventurer if she's just going to be surrounded by a load of blue jumpsuits?

    Option 1 She could just leave anyways if there’s no interesting jobs, might as well check the available jobs.

    As you walk out the gate, you realize this is it, time to leave behind Waverly and Vault 404. You know if you go west, you'll run into the territory of Poxxy's Chem Dogs, a vicious band of raiders who Vault 404 is currently at peace with. To the north you have heard tales of another band of raiders that ambushed some scouts. To the east, you've heard of grave dangers and vast treasures in the coastal ruins. To the south, are the towns of Frostproof and Wahneta, both of which might have work.

    1. West.
    2. North
    3. East.
    4. South.

    You can outsmart dangers, and hopefully the Vault will pay for good scouting information.
