Jump In
So, you've made your character and you're looking to get into some threads. Become familiar with your primary era's current plot by looking at our plot information. Then hop into the appropriate Fixed Timeline forum to have fun!

We recommend putting up a character profile so that other players can learn more about your character as they make their journey through Vault 713. And last but not least, feel free to make a thread in the Connection Classifieds to work out what kinds of friends, co-workers, or other relationships your character might have with others!
