MAIN QUEST 1: Baby steps
Received from: automatically when you've started the game [Vault 101]
Solution: The entire Vault 101 is much like a tutorial area. You'll spend from one to two hours here and you'll use this time to familiarize yourself with the basics. You start the game in the womb of your mother. This is where you'll have to make your first decision whether you want to control a boy or a girl. You must also pick the first name for your character. Now use a friendly creator to modify looks of your main hero.
The second phase of this quest begins a year after you were born. Approach your father (James) and allow him to pick you up. Once James has left this room, open the door of the coop, so you'll be allowed to move freely inside this room. All you have to do is to find a small book, listed as S.P.E.C.I.A.L. for you (screen). Interacting with the book will open a new window. This is where you'll make several important decisions. You must redistribute points to seven main characteristics. I would strongly recommend that you read the third chapter of the guide before moving on, because I've posted a lot of hints there on how to create a good hero. You should also know that you'll be allowed to change everything when leaving the vault. James will come back in a few seconds. Listen to what he has to say and follow him to a nearby corridor. This is where the quest will come to an end.
