Experiment & Results
The Stable 10 experiment was uniquely created by one of the lead Stable-Tec programmers, Doctor Fractal. Unlike a conventional stable, Stable 10 was an elaborate simulated reality maintained by the S.T.E.L.L.A. crusader maneframe.
The project began with Doctor Fractal studying the small farming community of Grass Valley. Once he had determined the group of subjects he wanted for the simulation, he summoned them all to Stable 10 for a medical checkup. During the checkup, he gave them sedatives and placed inside of the shared reality.

- "The simulation is just another level of the Stable itself… In fact, the simulation was greater than the Stables… Because there are so many more scenarios that can be set up and executed that go beyond the psychology of a subterranean ecosystem. That is a constant issue with applying experimental results to real world situations… You can never fully eliminate the trappings of the underground shelter setting." - S.T.E.L.L.A.
- "Well, that’s the thing. Even if the experiment is messed up, at least they get to die. ...Well, except for 76 I guess… But with Stable 10, Stella just keeps bringing them back. 500 ponies that she just keeps killing over and over again. Who knows how many times they’ve each died?" - Butterfly Stitch
Behind the Scenes
- The Stable 10 story is inspired by the Vault 112 "Tranquility Lane" experiment, The Matrix, The Truman Show, and Groundhog Day.
