A total conversion of Fallout 2, made chiefly (but not only) by Ardent. The mod takes place a few years after the events of Fallout 2 in the today’s States of Oregon and Washington.
Ardent's Mod has been in development since early 2009. No final release date has been announced. Currently, the mod's development is put on hold, due to Ardent's involvement with Mutants Rising.
Your character lives in a backwater town of Duston. You are sent on a routine errand which takes an unexpected turn and throws you in the middle of a clash for power and for the very last remaining natural resources.
