Behind the Scenes

  • This series is inspired by Shoddycast's Storyteller: FALLOUT series.
  • This series is the first audio drama produced by Nuclear Horseman Studios.
  • Originally the series was going to be presented in the "Storytime Animation/Review" style, but was dropped due to cost.
  • Back in pre-production, this series was going to be posted to The Rift Café's youtube channel, but ComicSansPony decided it was too mature for that channel. So it was moved to its own channel
  • The head writer/director, ComicSansPony, is no stranger to Fallout: Equestria projects having written:
  • The series is fact checked for accuracy by DCP.
    • DCP also helps adapt Fallout lore to Fallout: Equestria lore if need be.
  • NHS intended to post episode monthly starting as far back as the release of the Prologue, but had to make changes to that plan as production went on.
  • The Prologue was written after the first episode script was written as a teaser for the series.
    • Due to Production delays, "The Trollogue" was created as an impromptu April Fools joke.
      • It even managed to fool the voice of DJ Pon3 for the series, DJ Strike.
    • in the original draft of the Prologue script used for casting, there was an additional scene including the character Al Dente, but was cut for not feeling like a natural addition. The character is set to still appear later in the series.
  • The character Kriggle Pop has appeared in the epilogue chapter of Brittleshine's Quest Audio Files, where he is the DJ Pon3 15 years after Littlepip's story.
  • Zucchini and Pumpkin's names were added later in production.
    • In early drafts of the first episode, Pumpkin's name was use as a term of endearment not her proper name.
  • Zucchini, was intended to be a male role, but when no male VA was found, the role became female and was voiced by CadetRedShirt.
  • Pumpkin was originally going to be voiced by FluffDragonArt, but due to other obligations she dropped out and was replaced by CadetRedShirt.
  • Forrest McGilvray was the first choice for the role of The Storyteller, and got the role without an addition. His catalogue of audiobook readings served as his audition.
    • He was asked if he was interested almost a year before any scripts were written.
