The following is an additional background for those that just came from a vault.

Vault Dwellers

Some communities have remained inside there vault either by choose or because they were unable to leave. These communities will have some advanced technology and medicine, they will also know how to use and repair them. Most will have lived a life of peace and bliss possibly cared for by automated systems. Others may have had a hard time if there vault had one of the many social tests happening in it.

Bonus Feats: All Vault dwellers receive the Advanced Technology feat plus one of the following feats: Creative, Educated, Focused, Gearhead, Studious, Trustworthy.
Language: Ancient (bonus languages from high Intelligence can not be spent until the character runs into the language)
Special: Vault dwellers don't start with any money inside there vault as a vault is usually run as a communism. It is up to the overseer to decide what the player starts out with depending on what kind of experiment was happening in that particular vault.
