I put together the real-life folklore surrounding FO76 creatures and included some television episodes, books and links to help explore. Yao Guai was left out because that was a FO4 creation. This idea came to me when I was playing with another player on XBox and he had no idea about the real folklore surrounding some of these creatures. * Disclaimer – I have NO affiliation to the television, books and links *
