History of Morgantown: Author's Notes is a terminal holotape in Fallout 76.


  • Morgantown: The holotape is on a rooftop campsite, next to the Postcard from Mom & Dad note, immediately north of the VTU campus. To get to the rooftop, follow the monorail track until you get to the other side of the building immediately north of the VTU campus. Jump onto the fire escape, climb to the top, and then jump off onto the ledge below, following it around to the campsite.

History of Morgantown: Author's Notes
Epilogue [working draft]
I've accepted my fate, and the fate of Morgantown. It's too bad that I'll never get to meet you, but at least you have the story of this horrible place, and now the story of me.

Good luck, and try not to repeat history. You have a chance to start anew. Please don't be like us.

Author's notes [delete later]
I miss my mom and dad. I have no idea if they've survived, but I heard rumors that Charleston was hit by something terrible so I've pretty much given up hope. I can't leave Morgantown to go find them, and I'll probably die on this rooftop. But hey, at least I'm alive.

Victor suggested we meet up, but I don't really trust him that much. And there's nothing that's going to make me leave this roof - not because I'm afraid of the student gangs patrolling the streets. But ... I've started to notice that... my hair is falling out. I've been dosing out the little RadAway I have in small increments. Just enough to make the pain go away, but not too much. Had to make it last as much as I could. But it's not working anymore.

So, that's the motivation for recording the four volumes of Morgantown's history. It's not enough, but I'm losing strength every day. It's the most I could do.

Brainstorming [old]
1. Detailed analysis of post-war Morgantown

update: not enough time, getting too sick

2. Historical recordings of Morgantown survivor accounts

update: not happening, people are way too aggressively violent

3. Meet up with telescope guy? Big no.
4. Short recordings. Big picture, high level. "The History of Morgantown"? Will need a shorter name, too grandiose.
