In 2052, a television documentary into the withered husk of the Texas oil fields brought the oil shortage into the American households, and revealed how deep the energy crisis ran.[1] By 2077, their baseball team was to face off against the Boston Red Sox in the World Series, an event cut off by the occurrence of the Great War.[2]

Texas Wasteland

Not much is known about the former state of Texas after the Great War. John Cassidy often wondered whether Texas survived the War at all.[3] However, Tycho is known to have gone as far as the Gulf of Mexico in Texas and then headed back west.[4] After his quest with the Chosen One was over, Cassidy went on to search for Texas, breaking south through NCR and past Dayglow.

Plano is mentioned by Primm Slim as where Vikki and Vance met their ends.[5]

Some Brotherhood paladins were sent there to investigate strange rumors of mutant beings surfacing near the area formerly known as North Texas. It turned out that Attis was gathering his mutant army there to search for the FEV stored in Vault-Tec Industries's Secret Vault under the ghoul city of Los. After the paladins were missing, some initiates were sent to the town of Carbon to find them.
