1. Level 0.png Remnants of the Institute - Backstory
(Spectacle Island)


(Note: The following assumes that the Sole Survivor did not side with the Institute)


“Entry 1: All I remember is running, when the alarms and the call for evacuation came. Most of us that survived aren’t even sure who it was. Brotherhood of Steel? The Railroad? Or someone else? It all happened so fast. The shock of the surface was a horror to behold, the bleak, desolate land, hopeless and torn. The sound of the following explosion was unlike anything I could have imagined, and nothing I hope to again. It was our home, our livelihood, our dreams. We were to be the saviours of mankind, to bring about evolution!


Entry 2: We began an exxodus to find some place to start again. Most of the group suffered from low morale, others grew sick and… I’d rather not think of it right now. At any rate, those of us that remained pushed forward, wandering aimlessly and keeping an eye over our shoulders. We know they will learn of us that survived, and they will come for us.


Entry 3: We found a ship, of a sorts. Some of our engineers think they can repair it if the parts needed can be found. There are enough ruins around here that look promising. I’ll set out in the morning and see what can be found.


Entry 4: The bastards actually fixed the ship! I admit to great shame in having doubts, despite the work we’ve done over the years. We sat to water shortly after and made our way down the Charles, one of us says they might know a safe island in the bay. So long as we don’t run into any trouble, I think we might just make it.


Entry 5: Spectacle Island so it’s called. Can’t say I’ve read much about it, but it does seem relatively safe. This is to be our new home. We will rebuild. We will rise and let our actions speak. We are the saviors of mankind, and we will reclaim our right.


We will remain, with blood on our hands.”

2. Level 0.png 3. Level 0.png 4. Level 1.png 5. level 2.png 6. Level 2.png Remnants of the Institute - Settlement showcase

The Remnants of the Institute made their way to Spectacle Island following the aftermath of the Institute’s destruction. They began to rebuild, using the knowledge of science and eventually setting out to scavenge the Commonwealth for any tech that they might find useful, often at any cost to any that might get in their way. Rumours began to spread of a new and relentless group calling themselves the Remnants, many of which are assumed to be another group of raiders, driven by a goal unbeknownst to the Commonwealth. The goal to rebuild the Institute.

Love it! Very strong design. I think it's great how you've recreated the Institute with scrap materials.
I keep thinking that I should have a problem with the idea of taking the time and effort to destroy the Institute alongside powerful allies, only to lead the survivors in rebuilding it. But I can definitely see me doing that in game. Including them not realising it was my fault their home and friends blew up and my allies not realising I'm bring the Institute back :) Might even take a little bit of restraint to resist not building before taking out the Institute.

Thanks! It was a lot more tedious than I thought it was gonna be lol. Especially SRB. Though I wish I had a bit more time to push it further, alas, life didn't give as much time as I wanted lol.

I felt kinda bad. I generally side with the rail road cause I like the characters the most. But when I would hit the evac signal, and then I saw some Institute npcs walking around the Commonwealth, I always felt like I should do something for them.

I suppose you could always do the Conquer thing and wipe them out too! If you wanted to be mean lol.

I don't blame you lol. It was really hard for me to blow it up. I was emotional. Afterwards when I was little Shaun, we RP walked all the way to Sanctuary from the Railroad.

I kinda like to think that the player is a synth. I know a lot of people don't agree, but I head-canon it lol. Cause I think it changes the entire dynamic of the story from a mother or father looking for their son, to a son wanting to patch a life of regret without his parents. Guess that's off topic lol. Anyway, the Institute is awesome!

I play like this too, in my mind the players both of them died when they took the baby. you are frozen relieving your last memories you wake up to get ready with your spouse you say hi to your robot and so forth. It explains the disconnect, how and why you have options that should not really be there. And why I can never ever bring myself to blow up the institute. I can't end that much advancement. Even knowing I am a synth I hunt the rogue ones down, do I feel good about this yes because, we, I, they are weapons and that has to be taken into account. I love your build.
