[ Community -> Update ] - More info on Game: Fallout 3

There's a new Fallout 3 FAQ at The Vault, the Duck and Cover community's ultimate source of Fallout information. Here are a few good quotes:

Why are there super mutants on the East Coast? Shouldn't they all be in California?

According to a Fallout ending, most super mutants fled to the East after the death of the Master. It's not implausible for at least some them to have reached the East Coast after 115 years.

The death of the Master was the first major step towards ending his mad dream of conquest and enforced peace, but it is the destruction of the Vats that neutralizes the mutant threat. Without the ability to create more mutants and enforce their harsh brand of justice, the mutant armies flee to the east, beyond the no-man's land.[1]

Does it mean that they're not sterile, then?

No, super mutants are definitely sterile.

ZAX in Fallout says:

Additionally, as the gametes of the reproductive system consist of 'half-cells' using split DNA, they could be perceived as 'damage' by FEV, which would 'repair' them, rendering the subject sterile.[2]

And according to Vree:

While the process by which this happens is uncertain, it does have some severe side effects. Chief among them is sterility.[3]

If you have something good to add, the head on over!

Many thanks to Ausir for his tireless devotion to The Vault and to DAC.

For now, I added answers to questions I've been repeating in several threads over and over (especially about super mutants). I got tired with that so I made a FAQ to send people to smile.

Is it supposed to be a Fallout 3 FAQ or a "discussion surrounding Fallout 3 FAQ"? icon_confused2

It looks more like the latter now

It's both, really (as in, it started with me being fed up with answering the "mutants in the East Coast?" "are they really sterile?" "shouldn't they all be dead by now?" questions over and over again) smile. Those are frequently asked questions, even if the answers are from the Fallout canon and not from FO3 info.
