Learn the history of the new Enclave in Appalachia. After Reclamation Day, the Vault 76 residents found themselves in a world they no longer recognized. Some became Lone Wanderers, others became Raiders or banded together as new Settlers. Others found themselves in the WhiteSpring Bunker - and with the assistance of MODUS, began to rebuild America in the image of the old. Our characters will discover dark secrets and new threats, all while surviving the Wasteland of post-war Appalachia.

Earle Williams had never forgotten the promise of wealth, nor his desire to return home to Monongah someday. After convincing a group of like-minded members of Foundation, Earle would lead them into the depths of the mine in search of their fortune…and instead, they would find themselves victims of horrifying experimentation.

The Colonel must lead her band of survivors back to the Whitespring, putting their lives in the hands of their new allies, the Mole Miners… but now she walks a treacherous path with an uncertain future. Team Cryptid finds itself facing an even greater danger deep within the mines of Monongah, while the residents of Vault Town discover unlikely allies on their doorstep.

Team Cryptid descends into the depths of the Monongah Mine, not knowing what horrors they might find lurking in the darkness. And Trader Red comes face to face with the Cult of the Mothman.

Cross-Promotional Episode: "Frontier: Stories from Starfield - Voice From the Field"
47:36Today we have a very special cross-promotional episode, in support of Frontier: Stories from Starfield. This new Podcast anthology follows multiple writers and creators as they weave tales of space adventures, cosmic horrors, and the down to earth trials and tribulations of humanity making its way through Settled Space. This anthology can be found on Spotify, iTunes, and wherever else you access your favorite podcasts. Keep an ear out for our own episode, Neon - a space noir tale that delves into the darker sides of human nature. But first, we are pleased to introduce this very special episode - “Voice in the Field” by Bryan Bachman. Weapons of war come at the cost of those who’ll do the building. Those who’ll mine the resources. And those who’ll seek those resources out. Those are the individuals who wear the same insignia of a grand organization yet carry the mantle of the individual soul. It is not the organization that is often struck, but the individual whose traumatic life is exploited by those who seek to do the harm. It is in the darkness and solitude of space that those that seek to exploit, hunt those that would be exploited. Please enjoy & stay tuned for the next episode of the MODUS Files, “Shadow Games” - coming soon!

Season 3 - Episode 2 "What Evil Lurks...."
1:15:26Everything we once knew about Appalachia is being rewritten as the secrets once buried have come into the light. The survivors of the New Enclave discover the Mole Miners aren’t who they thought they were…not monsters, but another in a long line of tragedies which had befallen the former residents of the region. Doctor Hairfield and Sofia continue their escape from the Whitespring, but have they gone from the frying pan into the fire? MODUS stands revealed, and his plans for Appalachia and his…human assets…harkens to a much darker vision of the New Enclave. Team Cryptid arrives at Monongah Mine, while Lieutenant Jones and Cindy plan to do some exploring of their own, to discover how the Super Mutants invaded Foundation. And Trader Red is ready to start her journey south, and finds that she is more connected to the story of Appalachia than she ever knew.
Season 3 - Episode 1 "Revelations"
1:55:57Not since the Scorched poured forth from the Cranberry Bog has Appalachia faced a threat as terrible as the Super Mutants who have overrun most of the Savage Divide. The New Enclave suffered a serious defeat at the Battle of Emmett Mountain and the survivors have been forced to flee, scattered to the four winds. Worse, MODUS has taken steps to protect himself…not from the Super Mutants, but from “human failings and weakness,” utilizing nightmarish technology and data collected from Project SOMNUS and Commander Sofia Daguerre’s "Deep Sleep" Program. Trader Red survived her ordeal in the Mire, only to find herself altered, both a blessing and a curse…and ponders what her future may hold. And as Appalachia fractures, dark forces hidden away below our very feet are emerging into the light. They have their own plans for the world above…plans, which if allowed to succeed, will forever alter the course of humanity.
