Get ready to experience Fallout 3 again - for the first time. Ties that bind introduces a new companion: your sister. It features over 700 lines of professionally written & voiced dialogue, enhancing and expanding upon the vanilla Fallout 3 experience.
Ties that Bind features over 700 lines of dialogue, written by the same talent behind The Institute, and professionally voiced by actress Amanda Jane Herries. It promises a compelling story that adds to and enhances the original Fallout 3 narrative; including cutscenes, dynamic experience, and choices with genuine consequence.
It is HIGHLY recommended that you start a brand new game for your experience with this mod. Amanda is with you right from birth and most of the mod's content is directly tied to the game's main events, so if you add Ties that Bind after you've completed half of the main quests, you're going to miss out on all that content. If you DO start this mod with a character who has already escaped Vault 101, you will find Amanda at Paradise Falls.
Without spoiling anything, bear in mind that most of Amanda's content is TIED to the events of the vanilla quests - so if you have her wait somewhere or become separated and you go on with the main story, you will potentially be missing story beats with her. Most importantly, do not leave Vault101 without Amanda.
