The Fall is the major turning point of events after The Courier walked the Mojave twenty years ago, leaving behind the wastes as experienced by the Survior. As a result, unrest grew in Freeside and Outer Vegas, which would eventually become full-scale rebellion. Many of these experiments were conducted in a makeshift laboratory set up in the lobby of the Lucky 38 casino. Though the full nature of the experiments is unknown, it is implied that they were brutal, sadistic, and inhumane.
They did not share this information with the public, and instead began to outline evacuation procedures. Five years after the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, something went terribly wrong. It is implied that a disgruntled Vault 21 custodian may have intentionally sabotaged the Lucky 38 laboratory, causing a new Cloud to form Perfect Tan (Bikini Atoll) (Material Mix) - Machines Of Loving Grace - Perfect Tan the Stripmuch more lethal and corrosive than the Cloud of the Sierra Madre.
Riots and violence broke out. NCR troopers began to execute innocent civilians in the streets. In response, the Kings rebelled against the NCR, while also aiding in an evacuation of Freeside, saving countless lives.
The NCR locked the gates to the Strip, with all civilians inside. The rebels were forced out of and under the city, to the Sewers below. NCR troops then dumped radioactive waste into the Sewers to kill any survivors, before fleeing the city themselves. The city would ultimately fall to the Cloud and to the Time To Get Back (Space Dust Edit) - Various - Ultimate Silver - House storms that blew in from the West.
While some survivors managed to take shelter in the Strip's now-abandoned casinos, many citizens were not so lucky. Those who weren't immediately killed by the Cloud became Ghosts or Cloud Victimswhile others died slowly of radiation poisoning and exposure.
While New Vegas fell to the Cloud, a massive radioactive dust storm engulfed the rest of the Mojave Wasteland, causing widespread devastation. Whole settlements and towns were evacuated or otherwise destroyed. One settlement in particular, Goodsprings, was struck by an unknown form of plague, killing most of its residents and turning the once-prosperous community into a ghost town.
Other areas, such In The Hour Of Not Quite Rain - Buffalo Springfield - Buffalo Springfield Boulder Cityattempted to protect themselves with the same suits worn by Ghost people in Vegas and the Sierra Madre, ultimately becoming trapped themselves.
The ultimate effects of the Fall would spread as far out as Zion Valleywhere spore carriers from Vault 22 ran wild, alongside another strange, terrible creature As predicted by Ulysses, the Tunnelers from the Divide eventually burrowed through to the Mojave Wasteland, causing even more death and destruction.
The dust storms blotted out the Sun, allowing the Tunnelers to hunt by day, killing off most of the native animal population in the Mojave. After the fall, little remained of the old Mojave Wasteland. Once-powerful factions such as Caesar's LegionGreat Khans, and Powder Gangers were either wiped out or dissolved into roaming gangs of tribals and survivors.
Cannibalism became rampant, as people did whatever they could to survive. The NCR would eventually launch expeditions into the ruins of New Vegas, presumably to acquire materials left over from the Lucky 38 laboratories. However, none of these expeditions were successful, and the NCR soon abandoned all attempts to return to New Vegas, with only the Royst-Bernard Expedition consisting of rogue NCR scientific and military personel returning in an attempt to succeed, where regular NCR failed.
