Due to other species' hostility toward Vapor Industries and humanity, we will no longer sell weaponry and information to non-human races.

Vapor Industries was founded in 2162 CE after John DeMarcus left the Alliance military. He set up the headquarters in his home town, San Francisco. At first, his research into incendiary weaponry was sold to aliens of all species. Though the company stopped months before the release of their first weapon, the Vapor rifle.


As the company grew, more jobs were made. John appointed Harold Marr, a mathematician, to ensure that the formulas were safe and correct. Vapor Industries also gained several rivals as they grew, a similar company, Sea Leaf, often hired mercenaries to kill prominent members of Vapor Industries.
