History of the Ag Center

by Matt Forrestal

But then things got a little weird. The fallout from the bombs was changing the Wasteland in many ways, and Ag Center was no exception. Kathy tells me that the early farmers could've tried countering the mutations that were affecting the plants with selective breeding, but instead they decided to ride the wave of weirdness, selecting for bigger and hardier mutations to get better yields, which is how we've come to have tomatoes the size of cantaloupes, and cantaloupes the size of beer barrels.

For most of its existence, the Ag Center was led by an old farmer everybody called the Old Man, though his real name might have been Miguel. He must've been a hundred when Vargas, Thrasher, Angela and Hell Razor came a-calling, fresh-faced and eager to help.

But why did the Ag Center need help? Well, mutations ain't just all roses and giant carrots. Around about that time, the Center was invaded by hordes of giant rabbits who were just as happy eating people as they were the crops. It was a serious problem, made worse by the attacks being seemingly coordinated by some crazed old coot called Harry the Bunnymaster. Swear to God I'm not making this up.
