comment Why are starting languages restricted?
I sense a bit of self-contradiction here, though I may be wrong. You say "secret" languages should still be restricted. Why? If the PCs are so exceptional, why couldn't they be raised by druids as well, instead of just elves? And, in turn, why not take the original rule to mean that for practical purposes, Elven is a "secret" language for the dwarves? They may have the brainpower to learn it, but 1. they don't like elves, 2. elves don't like dwarves (let alone raise their younglings), so it's very unlikely for a dwarf to be able start knowing Elvish. Or druidic. Or draconic, etc.

Exactly. And if you are lucky, you'll roll higher than him, and maybe this time it will, finally, be The High Adventures of Greedo the Bounty Hunter who killed Han Solo. ;) (Also, thanks, I'm glad you like my answer.)

comment Is there any lore in the Fallout universe regarding South America?
Fallout does have quite a number of Pen and Paper players out there (even if there's no official PnP RPG, people love to run homebrew games in the Fallout universe.) I think this Q definitely has a place here on rpg.SE.
