War, war never changes.You are the Courier, but you have changed. Once but long ago a nobody, now your name is known far and wide across the dunes and spoken of by the tongues of men. You are a man who rose from the dead, spoke to Ghosts and Emperors, met the Gods atop the mountain, and reshaped the Sierra Nevada as you saw fit.But for all your accomplishments and deeds, the words of General Oliver still ring clear in your head.>Do you know what your doing! Making a nation - like you think you're doing, ain't like chowing down on a pile of Fancy Lad Snack Cakes.You took that challenge to heart. You have made 300 year old bombers fly to the heavens, and killed Death Claws with your bare hands while naked. Now you have a new Quest added to your gold and diamond studed Pimp-Boy 3 Billion: Forge a Nation in your name.You've survived the Wasteland with flying colors, but can you conquer it?---Welcome to the FNV Empire of One Quest. In this scenario after battle of Hoover Dam, the Courier, having kicked ungodly amounts of ass, wants to try and tackle the Wasteland on a much bigger scale and establish his own Empire. Not any old City State like New Vegas, but a real nation like the great empires fighting for the Sierra Nevada, and dream of possibly expanding even beyond these deserts.This thread is mostly to set up the character's background and some basic motivations/goals, I'll be preparing the proper Civ style quest for them to lead later in the week.Players can vote or write in, first to three votes or whatever majority.

>>1426560Today is the day, the very first day where you decide to bring the Wasteland out of its dust and rust into a new golden era not seen since before the Great War. You reflect on all that you've done, your reputation and where you stand today. Which empire do you intend to forge?CHOOSE>Bearer of the Golden BranchYou are a hero of the New California Republic, having routed the Legion at the great Battle of Hoover dam and been recognized for your velour and honor in battle and in service to this great nation. But the NCR is still a corrupt and flimsy nation rife with deceit and corruption, spread out to far and too wide until it is nearly bled white upon its own size as bandits, monsters, and other threats continue to flourish in its own borders. The bear is being bitten and stung by a thousand different pests, even as it fights for its superiority over the Bull. You intend to see that change, and the Bear rise up over the former American territory.>Hero of the EmpireAve, true to Caesar. You have served the Emperor well, having won him Hoover dam and a ticket into the west. Your face is spread far and wide upon the minted coins of his Legion that carves into this blasted wasteland, ripe for the taking. Unlike the NCR, the Legion finds its strength in unity, discipline, and most importantly leadership under Caesar and his most trusted generals. But its reliance on intentionally stifling technological advance in favor of skill ever proves a disadvantage in more and more cases, as the NCR only increases in knowledge and size. Constant oppression and subjugation of enslaved territories proves almost as much as hassle of logistics as the NCR's great size, as troops must maintain constant vigilance against dissidence and rebellion. Despite opening the door to the West, the Legion cannot move further without sacrificing its own gains. You ponder on ways to permanently affix this, and break the Bull from the chains of those it has enslaved to carve a greater Empire than even Caesar dreams of.>Vegas' Trump CardYou are the best investment ever made by the smartest man on the planet. Vegas stands as the closest thing to what the Old World once was, but like Mr. House himself is still but a ghost of its former self. Although you activated his robots and won full independence for New Vegas, the old man ever proves to be limited in his sight, perhaps a product of his great age causes his care to limit itself to his precious city. Vegas shines, but only just, and the rest of the Wasteland in darkness. And even the New Vegas of today pales in comparison to the Old World. Prosperity is caught in the cold metallic claws of the Securitrons. Can you break out of the rusted walls of this ancient city and make Vegas truly shine as the capital of a new empire?>Con't
>>1426582>WildCardNo Gods. No Masters. You routed the NCR and slain their general, gutted Caesar and his feared Legatus, and killed House himself. You are the master of New Vegas now. But having tasted what the Old World was and looking upon Vegas in its current state, you weep at the dirty, rusted, and ultimately corrupted city you have inherited. Still with an army of upgraded Securitrons at your bidding, the prospect of trying to forge an Empire while being squeezed between two others doesn't sound too impossible. After all, they don't have you on their side do they.>Other/Write inWant to play to see another faction rise entirely? As long as there's a reason for them to be in the Sierra Nevada go ahead. You might even try t reestablish the Enclave for example
>>1426588>No Gods. No Masters. You routed the NCR and slain their general, gutted Caesar and his feared Legatus, and killed House himself. You are the master of New Vegas now.

I loved House.
>>1426582Actually question, Could we be the Enclave? because if so, I want to change my vote here >>1426699
1 vote for independent2 votes for House
>>1426588>>Other/Write in>>1426712I would think so. So long as they're a faction that exists in New Vegas, the Courier can pretty much make any faction work.What about the Brotherhood of Steel? Weren't the Enclaves originally villains?
>>1426582>>1426712I would like to advocate for the Followers of the Apocalypse. They have the right leaders in science and medicine to create a utopia, and with good enough leadership and defense it can transform the Mojave.
>>1426712Absolutely, although remember currently the Enclave of the Sierra Nevada currently consists of a handful of old timers well past their prime.Well, if it gets voted a handful of old timers plus a Courier. Good odds for a faction outlawed by the NCR, the BOS and of course the Legion.>>1426720The Enclave is the rightful continuation of the proper American Government as outlined in the Constitution of the United States.Also yes they were hella evil, at least from FO3.But the old guys in FNV are more like retired run away nazi officers in Argentina at worst, and generally seemed nice except for that one fellow who really hated the NCR's guts.
>>1426720>Enclave the Villains.If you look at them from a morality stand point yes, but this is also fallout. No side is 'mortally' just in any fashion. The Enclave are actually the only 'true' members from the Old American government in any fashion. The BoS broke off from them and started the war because they found out about the FEV and that was being tested on prisoners and PoW's. If we could fix the Enclaves needs to just murder everybody instead of use them as labor they would be great. Due to the mass 'cullings' they suffered, That surprisingly wouldn't be too hard unless QM has his own lore.>>1426725Which is why they could defend themselves as is right? Lol.
>>1426729I'm gonna vote for Enclave, God Bless the Enclave and America.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72snIjhvpMA
>>1426730If the Enclave gets voted in you'll essentially have to rebuild the Enclave from the ground up, recruiting masses and key figures to their cause.
>>1426741I shall vote for the Enclave. God bless America
>>14266391 for independant>>1426740>>14267432 for Enclave>>14267251 for followers of the ApocalypseCurrent tally unless I missed someone, I'm in no rush if noting gets voted today I will check the thread tomorrow. Feel free to think on what you'd really like to play!
>WildCardWe've already cleaned up a lot of the Mojave's bullshit so turning it into it's own nation seems the best thing to do.
>>14267542 for independent
>>1426750All these choices. You also forgot my earlier vote >>1426692.
>>1426741That makes it all the perfect, What better place then to rebuild it then the New Vegas one of the most important places in America Before and Post, nuclear bombing.>>1426754>>1426763Join the Enclave side, we atleast start with people who are actually trained in starting proper military tactics and only lost cause of a PC.
>>1426750If Enclave wins we get to be the president right?
>>1426763Ah, right.>>14266921 for House
>>1426764It's not like the Mojave doesn't have former militia in it's borders. At the very least we have Boone.
>>1426767Only if you're ready for the campaign trail!
>>1426770Militias are super useful when holding onto places of known land. However they are usually under geared and under-supplied. Where as with the Enclave personal we would have an edge in almost every field of training plus how to properly fly verti-birds. Locations for hidden Enclave catches, and other things of that nature. Boones a good kid, but I mean. I'd rather have a squad of military guys with years of experience then just 1 guy.
Current Tally2 for independent2 for Enclave1 for followers of Apoc1 for HouseCurrent tally!
>>1426776>>1426767If we were a pretty cool cat then I'm sure we could win election of the Enclave no issue. This is making me want to replay Fallout 3 and New Vegas now.
>>1426778I just don't want to be Enclave because they seem to be a continuation of a bunch of the shit that led to the great war anyhow.I doubt they learned their lesson about the past or how to actually get civilians to cooperate on a large scale.
>>1426780What about a Brotherhood of steel path? What would we get? What shall be the objective?
>>1426767>>1426776Courier for 228X!>>1426778>I'd rather have a squad of military guys with years of experience then just 1 guy.>then just 1 guy.One guy is all we need.
Fully independent. Launched nukes at both sites from the Lonesome Road. Our rival is alive and contemplating the world now out on that perch.From our vantage point atop The 88 we forge a new empire. Attempting to use the fire of the enclave remnant alongside the compassion of the followers of the Apocalypse to lead the people out of darkness.
>>1426784I strongly recommend it I plan to myself, it's been a long time>>1426785Well you'd have a point if we were talking about the East Coast enclave, but like, with only 6 old people to start with you might have an easier time convincing them to change their ideology.Hilariously, thats the sort of complaint the NCR gets too by Caesar.>>1426789That would need to be a write in, but it would be akin to the House Quest. Like house, the BOS is very narrow minded, focused primarily on hoarding and guarding advanced technology for themselves alone, even if for a chivalrous cause. Hence the war between them and the NCR.You'd work to get them out of their monastic funk and into the empire building mood.
>>1426582>Hero of the Empireyou profligates better vote for establishing a new Rome or you'll end up like the whores in Nipton
>>1426795Also, since he's still alive, we need to convince him to join us in rebuilding the world he longs for but has never known.
>>1426785as Qm said here >>1426741 we'd have abunch of guys who disliked the bad shit the Enclave did and be able to do a fresh start of it. We'd also have abunch of knowledge and shit they did.Also the only reason the guys who 'did' the great war died along fucking time ago and paid the price.>>1426790 Ourselves? Is this what unlimited power feels like? >>1426796I wish I owned the older games, All I have is old lore and this nasty ass Fallout 4 that decides to fuck proper canon in the ass.>>1426799>New RomeYa, Cause the Last one worked so well...you know with the downfall and dark ages and things like that.
>>14267953 Votes for independent!This is the first vote to get 3. Since we have a lot more potential players in the quest, I'm going to give about half an hour or so for other votes to make a counter argument before locking it in.Any other votes by then get to three and we'll vote do tie breaker.
>Changing to EnclaveIf we're actually gonna do a reformed Enclave, then I change my vote to Enclave.Having access to old world tech would do a us a lot of good and it'd probably make us fast friends with the Followers anyways.
Let's make that nation!
>>1426826I can't hear you over the sound of that Football armor rushing across a minefield into Plasma fire.
>>1426819>>1426820With a switch and a new vote, the score is tied at 3 for 3 Enclave and Wildcard.These two options are LOCKED.---Please re-vote whether you would like to see Enclave Quest or Independent.
>>1426826Have fun getting beat out by a bunch of faggots from California of all places.
>>1426832Enclave Baby.Stars and Stripes forever.
>>1426832This will confirm the game and move us onto the next step.
>>1426832EnclaveNo reason we can't sway various other groups into joining with us.
>>1426832independent, we shall forge a more perfect society
>>1426832Indy. We can take the people we want to join us. Or try to at least.The courier and Ulysses. Working together to forge a nation. Butting heads on ideology but building a lifelong friendship and trust."Look at what you've built, Courier.""What we built."
>>1426799>or you'll end up like the whores in Nipton>NiptonBut what about that glorious steel that's been folded over 1,000 times?>>1426810Is it possible to run a Write-in where we spared House, but we're effectively puppeting him as one of the other faction options?>>1426784Honestly we could get any leadership position pretty easily, given >>1426560. Yes, embrace the Fallout.>>1426804>Ourselves? Is this what unlimited power feels like?Certainly. Now help me shock these robots into life with lightning.>>1426832>>1426780>>1426820Enclave, sway splinter factions like Followers of the Apocalypse into joining our ragtag band.
>>1426832Enclave. I'm glad to catch one of these empire builder /qst/'S at the start.
>>1426845Wait, will Ulysses join us if we pick the Enclave?
>>1426850Not at the start, you'll have to find him. Unfortunately you don't know where he went.
>>1426850He has no reason not too. We're building a new one, Learning from the past to make a brighter future. We're not regressing like he hates.>>1426846I just realized, We could even get to Big Mt or w.e. that is called. Thats New vegas right?
>>1426850Enclave a shit.Bro up with Ulysses. Try and recruit the Enclave remnants to help rebuild the country they thought they were fighting for. Build what NEEDS to be built.
>>1426855Big Mountain is the super secret science facility run by brains in jars which may or may not include yours working from a distanceNew Vegas is Vegas, except its not new but really old and honestly decrepit but much better than the wasteland in general.
>>1426855That is NV, but I have no idea if our Courier has done the DLC or not.If we did though, letting the Followers in would certainly get them in our pocket.
>>1426854How about staying with him at the end of the road, engaging in philosophical discussions about what the world needs, and setting out to so it together.
>>1426861I meant, Thats a dlc FOR new Vegas. >>1426863Hey, I'm down with bringing the Followers in for there medical knowledge and stuff with Enclave. I see no reason, they do want a better tommorrow just.. don't have the stuff they need to bring order to reach said places.
>>1426863>That is NV, but I have no idea if our Courier has done the DLC or not.He did. Exactly how he resolved them will be decided in game.
>>1426855>>1426861You're talking about the Think Tank, correct?>>1426870Interesting.
>>1426870So long as we murder the Think Tank and get all the AI in the Sink up and running, we good.
>>1426872Yup. Rip Murder toaster.

>>1426880I've had it happen to me before to my deepest regret, I would hate to do that to you guys and its my intent not to.I might be slow on updates when school resumes, but damned I won't let this die
>>1426886It's a lot faster when it's 4+ choices for one thing instead of 10+ choices for 50 things.

Will we see any famous Mods from the game make it into this quest? Even if it's just some equipment or cameos by fanmade characters.
House, the NCR, the Legion none of them were really important to you. In fact if the battle of Hoover Dam were to happen right now, you would hardly care.For all you know it IS happening right now.You've seen the Old World America, through simulations and footage, and the fever of old world blues and patriotism has gripped you with a fiery passion! You yearn to see that greatness and prosperity brought back to the wasteland, when all that is offered is the sad parody of it that is the NCR and the brutal totalitarian rule of the Legion and. . .the enigmatic House.The Enclave calls to you. But you've read the old NCR newspapers and know enough about history. The Enclave was destroyed decades ago in an Oil Rig, blown to bits, while any stragglers were summarily hunted down, tried, and executed by the NCR. Nothing remains of the Enclave but memories.Except a handful of old timers that you've called here to this bunker right now with an important thing to say.---You arrive at the Remnants Bunker, located on your Pimp Boy. You had to do a few errands for Arcade a long time ago, the details aren't that important.You remember you are wearing:>The Remnants Power Armor - The Toughest Goddamn armor you've been able to find in the Sierra Nevada, hands down. Its hugely fitting for this occasion as well.>The MK II Stealth Suit - Ever since you put "her" on you really are loathed to ever get her off your body. She has such a nice soft touch, and she's so friendly, warning you of enemies and telling you when its nice and safe. She's damned good at hide and seek.>Your boxer shorts - Fuck armor. Fuck clothes. You beat a nest of Cazadores to death in only your boxer shorts. Any other person walking around naked would be a huge embarrassment and taboo, but you're the motherfucking Courier! >Other/Write in?

>>1426947>>1426930 Power armor with a Duster... Thank God Fallout already makes no fucking sense because that's some bitching armor.
>>1426947You cannot carry every single piece of clothing you have ever encountered, far too heavy. Some things had to be left in a safe place for storage.However the Stealth Suit is in your inventory if its not picked.

>>1426965Thanks, I see it now.>>1426921This is a hybrid option, its within your reach but you'll need to travel to Big MT later on for it. It still feels like Power Armor seems to be the majority vote of 3 unless I am mistaken.
>>1426974you are not mistake and all good. Even if power armor had lost cause of it. It'd be kinda dickish you know.
>>1426965>>1426970Uh....>>1426915>>1426916>>1426917>>1426930>>1426974Yep. Also I vote for Power Armor.
>>1426982>>1426930Wow, I misread that. I still vote for power armor though.
Remember gentleman>However the Stealth Suit is in your inventory if its not picked.We can change outfits, I think
>>1426982>Uh....Were you in doubt over the Power Armor (with Duster!) combo?>>1426952Oh yeah, totally.>>1426994Yeah, but this is >The Remnants Power Armor we're wearing here.
Wear that sweet LA Riot armor from Lonesome Road.
>>1427011No, I was in doubt about the vote count. But I was actually wrong.
You're wearing the Remnant Power Armor, you love to get in a good scrap! Dishing out all the punishment while taking it in stride, this armor truly represents the superiority of American Engineering!You do have the Stealth Suit in your pack, sneaking has its uses by why sneak when you can fight! You also have some leather armor and a bandanna in your inventory for civil occasions, whatever those are.The brown duster you wear over your armor is riddled with holes and stains, but is as much a part of the suit as it is a part of your identity. You also remember the weapon you have at your side, your preferred instrument of delivering your particular style of justice at range.>A Shoulder Fired Fat Man - Who cares if you're indoors, the threat of this baby is good enough!>Gatling Gun - Ol' reliable at 3000 RPM>"Big Iron" - That song just wouldn't stop playing in a row one day, making you annoyed. You got yourself an Anti-Material Rifle, sliced off most of the barrel and refitted it with a custom revolver style loading system. This is one weapon you didn't find in the wasteland!>Anti-Material Rifle - Perfect for picking off pesky pests at a 1000 yards away. Like people in Power Armor for example.>Alien Blaster - You only have so many of these little glowy things you think are power cells, but who cares this thing is awesome. You've left a long trail of glowing goop in the wasteland with this baby>Other/RangedAnd when push comes to shove and the badguys are a bit to close, you've also got a good melee weapon>A Ballistic Fist - Punch people in the face and watch their head explode into itty bitty bits>Super Sledge - It's always hammer time>Thermic Lance - This thing melts through everything. Literally. You've yet to find something that stops it.>Cosmic Knife - This unholy thing is too sharp for anyone's good. It has on many occasions poked through your power armor and given you a nasty cut, and to hold it at your side in conventional knife holsters is a joke whose punchline is a lost toe. The only way you managed to wear it safely was by using the Thermic lance to melt and creating a holster made out other cosmic knives.>Other/Write in
>>1427031Before you ask, you haven't yet found enough cosmic knives to make a sword.

>>1427031I really want Big Iron but the Alien Blaster is tech would could learn from, hard choices.Melee is an easy one. Our enemies can't block if we cut through it.>Alien Blaster, Cosmic Knife.
>>1427031>"Big Iron">Cosmic KnifeBig Iron sounds like a quick-draw fuck you and the uses for the Cosmic Knife are near endless
>>1427031How many of these weapons can we hold in our inventory?>>1427033We can do this? I'm sorely tempted now.
>>1427056>How many of these weapons can we hold in our inventory?Not many. I'm not going to be super specific on weight but in general you can expect to hold about 2 heavy weapons tops, plus maybe about 11 medium weapons (or double that in small handhelds). And thats if you were naked, wearing the power armor and holding clothes also adds to the weight.
Is our Cosmic Knife clean or dirty?There is a considerable difference between the two.

>>1427031>"Big Iron">Thermic Lance>>1427049I think we'll still have an Alien Blaster if we don't use it as our main ranged weapon. At least in storage if not inventory.
>>1427062CleanThere was a super-heated one you found, Arcade asked for it and has it. Says its useful for cauterizing wounds during "emergency amputations"
Cosmic Knife LOCKED>>1427035>>14270492 for Alien Blaster>>1427053>>1427064>>14270653 for "Big Iron"Writing
>>1427073We are totally making a Saturnite Sword in the future. That's just too baller to pass up.
>>1427061>>1427049>>1427065Yep, it is. I suppose this means what weapons we're best at and what we spend the most ammo out of.>>1427031>>"Big Iron" - That song just wouldn't stop playing in a row one day, making you annoyed. You got yourself an Anti-Material Rifle, sliced off most of the barrel and refitted it with a custom revolver style loading system. This is one weapon you didn't find in the wasteland!>>Cosmic Knife - This unholy thing is too sharp for anyone's good. It has on many occasions poked through your power armor and given you a nasty cut, and to hold it at your side in conventional knife holsters is a joke whose punchline is a lost toe. The only way you managed to wear it safely was by using the Thermic lance to melt and creating a holster made out other cosmic knives.Most useful items we have so far.>>1427027Ah, right. Counting can blur together at times.
>>1427080QM, were you the same guy who made Fallout ship quest?
Here stands the Courier. Decked in his potent Remnant Power armor draped by an old Duster.In his right hand a personally crafted weapon unlike any other, a 28mm six shooter crafted from the barrel of an NCR Anti-Tank/Anti-Material rifle, the "Big Iron" so heralded in the song. Any other man would have needed to just hold this with two hands, let alone fire it, but not you. In your side arm, you have your not-so-trusted Cosmic Knife, which has a propensity to hurt you as much as it can your enemeis. Good thing you're pretty skilled at Melee Weapons in general, this thing causes some really bad owies.>You prefer to face your enemies openly in Power Armor!>You prefer getting up close and personal, blasting them with well aimed pistol-cannon shots and slicing them with a knife!---The sound of your heavy footsteps can be heard as the old soldiers gather around the holographic table, continuing to fade away as old soldiers do.Doctor Henry the Scientist/combat engineerOrion Moreno, the soldier and heavy weapons trooperJudah Kreger, the (former) Commanding officer and captainCannibal Johnson,Soldier, sniper, and marksmanDaisy Whitman, vertibird pilot.Arcade is here too, also wondering what you plan to do.They answered your call to gather at the Bunker, and ask you why you've gathered them here."What's the meaning of this meeting anywho?" askes Kreger.>Write-in response requested>If you cannot come up with words, then simply state your intentions/goals for the group. what is it you want to tell them >Roll a 1d100 with your postsAnd that's it for me tonight folks! I have to go to bed. May not be on tomorrow due to a long trip but should be back by Saturday at least. Take this time to come up with an outline of what major goals and plans you have for the Enclave!>>1427132nope. I ran Imperial Japan in Fantasyland quest back in 2012.
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>1427135"I just have one thing to say, short and sweet. We take America, even places beyond that. A manifest destiny for a new American empire, I ask that you all join me. The old guard to train the new and inexperienced. What do you say? Are you with me? Are you ready to make a newer, greater America?"
>>1427135Night man. Get some sleep.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>1427135>Brothers and Sisters. I have asked you all here for another request one that may shock you to some degree. The future is bleak with the corrupt NCR, And the Slave Driven Legion. House only cared for greed and his own wealth. I've killed many people and yet I've also brought hopes and dreams to many. I ask you to help me reforge a future for the various people of the wasteland for now to drive out the NCR and Legion for good, with House's cards being brought to us. We would bring the remaining goods of the Brotherhood of Steel into our control, Secure assets for a bright future that are unused or not repairable from the NCR and Legion and gather the cities and peoples togeather with flowing water and power to everybody along with food. Training the up the masses to be a proper military and resecuring industry and medical knowledge from the Followers and you here to ensure we defend ourselves.I want to see the wasteland dare I even say, Maybe farther out actually bloom once more under civilization one that cares for all of its people, not just a few. I know this sounds like every other speech made but I ask for you to look at my deeds and what I have done and what we can do together for a bright future. A future for all of America.>Resecure the Flow of Caps, Water, Food, Power and building supplies>Get people to work in factories or farms or things like that so they can afford these new goods thus kick starting an industry>Get the Followers and the current Enclave to get proper hospitals up and a Military trained up>Secure BoS and other Enclave goods for the military and us>Restart education and various other important things I have forgotten. If anybody has a better speech or w.e. please do.
Now onto to our speech.Main Goals:>Establish a reformed Enclave as the dominant power in the Mojave.>Reclaim old world technology with the cooperation of the Followers of the Apocalypse.>Begin enlistment of troops.>Secure the borders of the Mojave.>Eventually take new territory and absorb the wasteland into the New American Republic.Anything else we want to put on that?
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>1427135This man seems to have an idea at the very least so far. >>1427167 so my roll for it
>>1427180>>1427167Fuck it, I'm with them
>>1427185Yours is actually pretty close to mine in terms of a plan. I just added a speech to mine albeit kinda shoddyly. >>1427180Also Jesus anon, Somebody feels American tonight.
Rolled 22 (1d100)>>1427167This is good.I'd like to make one addition. I suggest we say something about restoring the Enclave and making it what it should be; that we must be the continuation and rebirth of America that the people need, and in doing so restore their faith in our cause.>>1427180Nice
>>1427167To add on to the goals>Form an effective army that can act as a conquering force in times of war, and a police in times of peace>Secure control of the Mojave, if any wish to fight against us they'll be given the chance to surrender peacefully. If not then they'll face annihilation>Grow more across America, doing the same as above. Securing Old World technology along the way.>Gain a firm control of food, water, caps and other resources>Establish Old World systems of taxes, education, and laws>Make the American Empire be the only civilization where a man or woman truly can live and prosper.You could use my speech
>>1427202I'm alright with that.
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>1427167And I'll add on to the rolls
>>1427167I'm going to add that we shall hold a presidential election right now! And I, the courier shall be a candidate
>>1427225That might even be more of a forced 'i'm the leader' then mine. Considering nobody else has currently done as much as us.
>>1427225>>1427228Yeah. Shouldn't we leave the presidential election for after the Battle of Hoover Dam? There's only, what, 10 guys in this entire organization?
>>14272347 in the west coast. Everyone in the bunker and Arcade.
>>1427298That's only in the Mojave, if we scour through the West Coast we would probably find a few dozen more
>>1427325>if we scour through the West Coast we would probably find a few dozen more>a few dozen moreThere are literally dozens of us, dozens!
>>1427325If we put out an alert. The other enclave outposts might return. Who knows what long range tech is sitting in Mr. HOUSES place and I hope we out yes man in charge cause his great for a puppet for us
Would it be a long shot to try to reason with the Brotherhood into joining us? They are a powerfull force that i would prefer not having as enemies.
>>1427333I'm sure Enclave also has a few secret bunkers all over the West Coast that we could find and salvage equipment from
>>1427363>BOS>Cooperating with anything even remotely resembling the EnclaveNaw. They're pricks anyways. They can go die in a fire.
>>1427363>BoS>Friendly with anybody that even looks techyfuck those traitors.
>>1427375>>1427380Had to ask.
>>1427373Probably.Are we going to ditch the whole 'purity' angle that the Enclave stuck to? Because if we want to rebuild America, we're probably going to have to do it with the slightly mutated / irradiated populace.
>>1427456We kinda have to ditch the "Purity" bit.We can't afford to waste resourceson exterminating everybody who doesn't fall withing a certain percentage of a genetic pattern. Fortunately for us, the people of the Mojave seem to be a hardy and industrious people. Even the mutants pull their weight here.
Going on for a bit, if i"m lucky I'll be able to reply in and out of the day.>>1427167>Kreger"Son, if I didn't know you better I'd say you took out a page from Richardson's speeches and decided to repeat it back to us. That's the same sort of thing all the presidents repeated in Navarro for two hundred years. I don't know what new idea's come over you son but we've lived our whole lives believing that dream. We've seen people close to us give their lives, and done some pretty nasty things for it, only for it up in our face and turn to ash. We're not too keen on dedicating the last bits of our lives on something that was lost a long time ago.">>1427167>>1427180>>1427212At first the group has a look on their face as if they've heard all of this before (to be honest they have). But as you talk on, there's a twinkle in their eyes, like an old fire relit. Some of them start to remember the American dream they once shared, and hearing it come from you, talk of bringing back prosperity and peace stops being a record player and starts being an honest message they want to believe in again.Even Arcade seems to be impressed, but ever the logical thinker he has to point out the obvious.>Arcade"Those are some noble goals you've set yourself out to do, but the NCR has you beat by about 100 years. Corrupt as they are they have been establishing farms and factories, reclaiming technology, establishing a military and safe zones. I can't say they've been the perfect guardian angels, but for all their greed they have been reestablishing civilization and keeping the Legion out of the Nevada.">MorenoUnlike the others Moreno is dressed in his power armor. "Fuck the NCR. I don't care what trinkets and scraps they make as hand outs, I'd sooner join the Legion than the NCR anyday."Arcade is visibly distressed at this thought, but still some things had to be said."And for all of the NCR's corruption, it has to be said the Enclave wasn't a beacon of morality either." Arcade looks to Kreger.Kreger nods back. "Arcade is right. In a way sometimes the Enclave was as bad as the Legion in how it approached the wasteland. There was a lot of wrong done to a lot of innocent people for the sake of the "greater good"You can sense Moreno's anger beneath his armor. "It was war. We followed our orders and did what we had to do. No more than any NCR soldier or Legionaire.">Daisy"I would like to get back in a Vertiberd cockpit. . .but look sweetie, we're not exactly the young men and women we used to be.">Doc Henry"Daisy is right. You want to establish a nation with 6 old soldiers, one young doctor and a Courier. Now you've done some pretty amazing things but that seems like too tall an order for anyone.">con't
>>1427484>>Doc Henry>"Daisy is right. You want to establish a nation with 6 old soldiers, one young doctor and a Courier. Now you've done some pretty amazing things but that seems like too tall an order for anyone."Did we help out the boomers in this 'play-through'? If so, let them know about them. The old guys aren't gonna be doing the fighting, they'll be training the boomers.
>>1427495Of course we helped the Boomers.You'd have to be retarded not to.
>>1427484>Arcade"He does make some nice points about reform and education, and working with the Followers. Ever since Kimball the NCR decided to establish their own Office of Science and Industry, the NCR hasn't been the best of patrons. Many of the followers suspect if they win at Hoover Dam, the NCR is going to drive us out.">Kreger"Tell us Arcade, you've traveled with the man. Do you really think he's capable of all this?">ArcadeHe pauses and thinks on it for a moment. "There hasn't been anything I've seen the man set out to do that he hasn't accomplished, and some of the tales he's told me about places like Big MT or the Sierra Madre Casino I wouldn't have believed myself if he didn't bring back proof. If he really means what he says to work with the followers and recruit local villages, I think he could do it. Its going to take more than just the seven of us. But from what I've seen, he's made a lot of good friends. If he brings them along, we can do it."Kreger nods."Alright son, you've got the Devil's Brigade on your side. Show us some of those crazy Courier deeds to back those words, and maybe we can do a lot of good in the time these old dogs have left."[SUCCESS]---You have successfully convinced the Enclave Remnants to your side. You now have control over one settlement. I'll be statting it when I get a chance to sit down and do it.
>>1427505We probably have the securitrons too. If we wanted to remake america, then we probably kicked everyone else out, so that gives us a foothold in vegas and some manpower.
>>1427530In this Scenario, the battle of Hoover Dam has not yet happened. House is still alive, and in control of both Vegas and the Securitrons which haven't yet been upgraded by the Platinum Chip. You actually have it in your inventory.CHOOSE:You remember you got the chip by:Going to the Tops and:>Slaughtering Benny and/or everyone inside>Pickpocketing Benny and leaving without being noticed>Convinced Swank to kill Benny then looted hisbody>Intimidated the shit out of Benny>Seduced Benny with amazing charisma skills>Other?ORWent to the fort and:>Convinced Caesar to give you the chip (after HE killed benny, or stole it, you're not sure how the Legion did it) and that you would kill house with it>Pickpocketed Caesar and leaving without being noticed>Slaughtering Caesar and/or everyone inside>Other?
>>1427548>>Slaughtering Benny and/or everyone inside
>>1427548>>Convinced Caesar to give you the chip after HE crucified benny
>>1427548>Going to the Tops and:>>Other?Ripping apart Benny with our bare hands, and then just walking away, laughing as the casino's small arms as well as the unupgraded securitrons just bounced off our power armor.
>>1427548>>Pickpocketing Benny and leaving without being noticedYou know what causes fear? When a person in power armor sneaks up to ya.
>>1427548>convinced swanks to kill benny
>>1427548I'll back >>1427560
>>1427548>>Intimidated the shit out of Benny
>>1427560Do it. The future Waits for no man, not even you Mr.House
>>1427548>>14276172nd. Was this one of the original options? I don't remember it being possible to do it this way without Benny running away.
>>1427548>Intimidated the shit out of Benny
>>1427548Distracting Benny with an intricate song and dance number, courtesy of a hack job of the local securitrons
>>1427965If there were enough votes for this to have a chance, I would vote for this. Unfortunately, there aren't so I'll stick with >>1427650.
>>1427650Benny always runs away, Unless you kill him from what I've seen.
>>1427974Yeah, but I was thinking maybe something different happened if we intimidate him this time.
>>1427983i'm not sure why it would.
If I can remember correctly, ceaser dies shortly after the second battle for the damn and the legion rips it apart if we don't cure him. So that's one major player as long as the NCR suffers and the legion from the secruitrons and Yes Man, after a few reprogramings is put into Mr. Houses spot. We should be mostly fine to secure our means of goods
>>1427560And after this, we can just destroy the fort and everything inside of it, except maybe the Securitrons. We could use those as part of our army
>>1427988Generally speaking there are definitely elements of the plot that do not conform to the video game. You can certainly fluff and vote for something about our history that wasn't in the game.
>>1427557>>1427562>>14276073 for Kill Benny (with or without the Tops)>>1427560>>1427564>>1427602>>1427609>>14276495 for "Got it from Caesar (who killed Benny)>>1427617>>1427774>>14280113 for intimidation"Got it from Caesar" LOCKED>Writing
>>1428110>>1427650You also forgot my vote again, which makes it 4 for intimidation. But that's not enough anyways.>>1428104Neat.
>>1428125Sorry bout that, I try to catch em all
>>1428138>I try to catch em allClearly you have some ways to go before you can become the questing master.
>>1428159He got some good hits in, right?
Should we create an American Republic, or some Autocracy?Republic all the way, let's bring back the good ol days of the U S of A
>>1428447America is a Republic for and of the People.Though, this is a period of crisis, so Emergency Powers need to be temporarily granted to the office of the President.
>>1428452>>1428447First American Empire. The people are currently too stupid Like the real world. To be part of a Republic or Democracy without it ending up and abusing them in some fashion.
>>1428452Of course, of course.>>1428460UN-AMERICAN BELIEFS DETECTEDDIRTY PINKO
>>1428463>Un-american>Letting american's suffer when you have the chance to ensure they won't need too.Let me guess, You think the NCR is the best fucking faction ever made? All because of Muh 'supposed' Freedom?
>>1428471Oh hell no. Autocratic and bureaucratic nonsense.We'll stop suffering by enlightening the Wastes with Americans Freedom.You sir, are an Un-American communist.
>>1428447The First American Empire
>>1428484>Communism>First American EmpireOhboy.
>>1428447A republic with suspended elections until stability can be established. Then we step down for the elections. And they will call us Cinncinatus.
>>1428515That could work.I figure we're the most likely candidate in those elections considering the shit we're gonna have to pull off beforehand.
>>1428515A Napoleon sort of figure could also be nice, maybe even a Julius Caesar.
>>1428515>>1428521A metricrotcy would be better until we actually get tensions down. I know for a fact I misspelled the government type. still going for an empire however.
>>1428515>until stability can be established Yup, that's a good end date...
>>1428557Ah, Yes. Thank you.
>>1428515This is how an autocracy is created. Even if "elections" are "opened up," it will likely be the same people as before, except for maybe one or two actual do-gooders. You'll quickly find those in power rarely will relinquish it unless forced to.
>>1428515We will be the American Napoleon!But, like >>1428575 said, we need free elections.
>>1428584I guess we can hack it on the campaign trail. I figure if we lay out our plans we should get at least a decent amount of public support.
>>1428584Don't recall saying we needed free elections.Personally, I'd prefer a Constitutional Monarchy. Congress on one side, King on the other. A proper American Empire can be built off of that, one to put the British Empire to shame.
>>1428591Fuck monarchies.We came to this conclusion centuries ago for Christ's sake.
>>1428584>>1428589>>1428591>>1428575>>1428574>>1428566>>1428557I don't think we will ever be able to have elections during our life. Our Empire wouldn't be stable enough to hand over power to someone maybe less competent, as well as all the other problems associated with democracy. Unless there was a way of gaining immortality...
>>1428589Plus, in a gameplay perspective, it would be entertaining to stump our way into office.
>>1428601I figure we could have the sink's Auto-Doc put us into a robot or something.Maybe if we found a synth...
>>1428611An Imperialist is far from a Commie.Don't see the issue with the Empire balanced by a proper Congress. Keeps the peasants happy, gives them a voice, and the legislative power while allowing someone of proper blood retain executive power.
>>1428627>referring to the people as peasants>"proper blood"Worrying me a bit there.
>>1428636Go be austic and stupid elsewhere
>>1428627We can do the roman republic way. Elected senate except in emergencies, then we elect a dictator for a short period of time.
>>1428636>>1428639Would you prefer me call them civilians or citizens? The meaning of these is the same as peasant in this context. But fine. We will give the average citizen the opportunity to run the country. Although, to run a proper campaign, they'd need quite a bit of money or funding from the private sector to tour or be broadcasted on the radio outside of debates, so it still limits the pool of participants. There is no creating a "true and free" election system. No matter what, we'll be plagued with the same issues as the modern American government, so we may as well improve upon it as we can.
>>1428657So long as we're not a complete dictator and we actually put things to votes with elected officials and shit, I'm fine with whatever.Except for Communism and Monarchies.
>>1428640>>1428649>Believing in a system that creates an unhappy populace and unmanageable nightmare
>>1428657Improve upon it by allowing for greater civilian representation. There we go.
>>1428627Don't see the issue with the Empire balanced by a proper Congress. Keeps the people happy, gives them a voice, and the legislative power while allowing someone of proper blood retain executive power.
>>1428677>unhappy populaceAnon, if they are secure and kept productive, they don't really need anything else. Besides, people like Napoleon, Augustus, and Julius were beloved.
>>1428677 >>1428693What government makes a happy populace? What government doesn't create a nightmare for its officials? Do we seem happy with our current government? The Republic has failed us. Only the rich and influential can run anymore. And how do you intend to open it to more people? Is the government going to fund all campaigns? Are we going to tax everyone so that anyone can run? It is not possible in the modern age (or post-modern, as it is) to create such a system. No matter what, someone will be unhappy. Best to do what we can, but keep executive power in proper hands and let everyone else squabble and fight over legislative power.
>>1428701Julius kept the Republic nominally.We will be better than all of em when we institute DEMOCRACY
>>1428707Local elections boy. How will preventing free and fair representation create a happier populace, they will simply resist the executive branch. We need representation for the people.How can we call ourselves heirs to America when we are the antithesis to traditional American values?
>>1428711Julius kept the legislature, which I agree with. Democracy is good when there is order and safety in the nation, not when we have to deal with a post apocalyptic world ravaged by every horrible thing possible. Democracy keeps people happy, while authoritarians get things done.
>>1428731Authoritarian regimes have consistently proven to be inefficient and unstable, replaced by another autocrat.Democracy is proven to work.
>>1428741I'm sorry, but corruption takes hold much faster in Democratic nations then others.
>>1428728>How can we call ourselves heirs to America when we are the antithesis to traditional American values?We should not have to. America failed and died. But we are the survivors. We are the true heirs because we are the strongest, and we are the survivors. Traditional American values, those held by the ones who failed America, have no meaning here. Why should we follow a system that lead to the death of the world, alongside Communism?>>1428731Which is why I advocate for the middle ground. It can and does work.
>>1428741>democracy proven to workHAHAHA HAHAHAholy shit please tell me you aren't being serious
>>1428741>Democracy has proven to work, while Authoritarian regimes don't>Wow I sure like my Congress in gridlock while my country is falling apartAlso, how can you say that Authoritarian regimes don't work? I'm not going full Stalin, but a mix of the free market, legislature, as well as a VERY strong executive branch
>>1428744Factually incorrect.Corruption and cronyism ran rampant under the Soviets and the autocratic governments of China, Zaire, Honduras, Brazil, Rhodesia, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, 1930's Italy, Ceaušescu's Romania, Turkey, Ottomans, Thailand, Vietnam, Venezuela and Yugoslavia, not to name countless others.That's just stupid anon.
>>1428746So then why are we the Enclave? We might as well be godless communists.>>1428748Only superpower on the planet babyyyy
>>1428759But the enclave weren't godless either. We still believe in the Bible, while having a secular-ish governmentWe can easily combine the best of both worlds like >>1428746 is suggestingAlso, while I am a patriot, I know the US did not get this way because of just our type of government alone
>>1428110You remember that once upon a time you decided to work for Caesar, just to get close to the man and the Legion. Back then you still weren't decided on who you wanted to support.You did remember how important the chip was and as was getting the man who put bullets in your brain. When you learned from Caesar himself that he had Benny crucified and had the chip in his possession it was disappointing.Your Pimp Boy still lists Caesars request, you were supposed to go to the Bunker and destroy whatever was inside. You still haven't. That's a choice you can do whenever you feel ready.Today though, you spend time actually assessing the bunker and seeing what you have.----->>>>>A. Scavenge (for what)>>>>>B.

>>1428695I'm all for this, let there be a representative sent from cities and towns to tell what needs to be done for their area of land. >>1428701We should figure out the function of our military, I'm all for being like the Assyrian empire and the Mongols to demoralize the enemy with terror tactics and sheer brutality.For the justice system I'd say this: for minor offenses like petty theft, minor arson and the like they have to perform 48 hours of community service and pay a fine.For those who've committed heavier crimes like murder, rape and such. They're conscripted to be an advance party in fighting in wars. Utilitarianism.And for everyone arguing about communism. It's an economic system, we can be a socialist oligarchy, a capitalist autocracy, or communist monarchy to name examples.>>1428759Because there were a few here who wanted to suck the dying cock of the Enclave to revive it.>>1428748I'm sorry commie, you want to buy some bread? No? Why? Is it because your economy controls everything and you get next to nothing? Excuse my capitalist self eating a fine banquet of burgers and apple pie.>>1428771Supporting >>1428783
>>1428783But why would the Enclave forces come? They have been hunted by the NCR all over and have to be extremely careful not to give their position away
>>1428800We're using an Enclave only boardcast to meet us somewhere, They're disorganized and might honestly just be laying low until they can get somewhere. Alot of outposts and other places are still working just not talking.
>>1428795I'm arguing for democracy and some trivial thing called FREEDOM
>>1428812Alright then that makes a lot more sense. I just hope we are using our turn as best as possible
>>1428822So am i, I don't know if we can only do one action or two per turn.
>>1428829I was thinking a research and a main action
>>1428744That is because corruption is institutionalized within autocratic regimes - the elite are corrupt and the state empowers it.
>>1428898Well if we also try to model ourselves from the Galactic Empire in Star Wars, they allowed no corruption at all.
>>1428921They're entire military system was made of gloryhounds and politicians, not military minds. You have to suck up to someone who knows someone if you want to be a starship captain.
>>1428959While there was that sort of "nepotism" that you were talking about, you can't say there was NO meritocracy at all
I FORGOT TO MENTION, PLEASE ROLL A 1d100 WITH ALL VOTES/PROPOSITIONPlease revote with 1d100
>>1428983I can say that, because their wasn't.The main reason the rebs pulled off so many victories in the eu was because of imperial incompetence
Rolled 42 (1d100)>>1428783

>>1429010>>1429047So what are you revoting for, >>1428783?
>>1428921As I mentioned above, corruption is inherent to autocratic regimes. You need it to bring the elite onside and keep them loyal - the Empire included.If anyone is ever caught out for 'corruption' it's because they made a political mistake. Modern China is a perfect example of this.
>>1429115Are you saying their isn't corruption in democracy?
>>1429114I was rolling for QM to see.
>>1429010>Please revote with 1d100>>1429155Yeah, but I think he wants you to link to what your command is.
>>1428771my vote here >>1428783 roll here >>1429047
>>1429141No, but it's way worse in autocracy.Autocracy isn't efficient in any way.
>>1429185But it can be with a good leader. Even with a good leader, if congress doesn't want it, we don't get it.
>>1429195That's never going to happen. First of all, no leader is infallible, and if they make the slightest mistake, they won't rectify it.Second of all, no man has absolute power, theirs always someone else who influences the play.Third, the people would in no way accept a man with absolute power. That's foolish.
>>1429200Good thing I'm not arguing for absolute power. My plan, as well as three others, were to have the Courier as the Emperor, with a legislative branch. If this is agreed on, we would go into the more gritty details. Only one kind of man can have absolute power, and that's a god, or someone a lot better than us. Also, the people would accept a man with absolute power, as long as the man is competent and benevolent.
>>1429212Why not simplify it to a council with us as a first among equals for now? Or, well, what we're currently having.
>>1429263Well with a council, I think that would take away power from the people. I am pretty firm set on an Emperorship with a Congress. But unlike OTHERS, I am open minded.
>>1429200>That's never going to happen. First of all, no leader is infallible, and if they make the slightest mistake, they won't rectify it.That's a rather broad generalization. Some leaders do understand they make mistakes and do rectify it. It simply isn't common in the modern age because the "mistakes" are done on purpose for the benefits of other powers.>Second of all, no man has absolute power, theirs always someone else who influences the play.You seem to have never heard of Louis IV of France.>Third, the people would in no way accept a man with absolute power. That's foolish.People did for thousands of years before the dawn of the republic. People will do anything for their hero.

This also means if you were to choose to build an above ground tower it would be seen too.Still, perhaps there might be other options for enhanced communications you're not thinking of.

Scrap metal. Since forever it's always been something you tended to leave behind unless you really wanted to craft something, for a long time your ability to craft was limited."Big Iron" was actually the best thing you ever did craft, and that took a long and involved quest working with the Gun Runners for decent parts.As always the issue, in the wasteland isn't finding metal, after all places like Gibson's scrap yard is chuck full of the stuff.The problem is figuring out how to use it.Only recently have you heard the NCR has gotten a handful of Old World industrial mills up and running to recycle steel (another reason they want the Hoover Dam) but there's nothing like that kind of capability here in the Mojave.Regarding Power Armor is an even trickier issue. It isn't so much the armor that's the hard part to make, its the Power Armor Frame. A lot of advanced electrical components and finely calibrated hydraulics goes into them, and it takes a lot of skill just to repair and replace the parts. Making a new one from scratch is something beyond your reach. You wonder if the Brotherhood of Steel might know how, you never asked. Kreger says they don't know, although they are good at maintaining Remnant power armor the only people knew how to make it were at Navarro. They could be dead for all that's known now.---Other things that come into your mind regarding know how of using Materials and Industry is BIG MT and the Think Tank, but those brains are all so very addled on ancient Old World projects.Then there was the Sierra Madre Vending Machines, and technology there to literally synthesize matter from energy. That was incredible but. . .going back to the Sierra Madre is something that makes your stomach Churn. Indestructible holograms with some of the strongest laser weapons you've ever faced, only able to be defeated by disabling their holo-emitters. The infernal Cloud, that toxic gas that corrodes and melts everything they touch. Legions of Ghost People.But that was you without any armor or weapons, and most importantly a Vertibird for fast escapes. The prospect of going back doesn't seem so bad. Maybe. No it still seems awful, but not impossibly awful.
>>1429811Hey AM don't we have a massive radar array we can use that the God wanted us to dick with for them? Couldnt we use that too boost a singal or even Houses Kit?
>>1429890 That doesn't immediately come to mind so I'm not sure what you're referring to, could you give some more details or help me find it in the Wiki?
>>1429890You're sure House has some kind of advanced communications Array in the lucky 38, there's also Helios 1 and the Nellis Array. Both are guarded heavily for ostensible reasons. But hey, since when has that ever stopped you.
>>1429893You find the ghoul in the place and have to fight up a mountain. Tobba or w.e. Is the werid female? Super mutants name
You and the others go out and gather scrap metal, including 2 Junk Cars (you were careful to remove and dispose of the unstable power cells which couldn't be repaired, and actually melted down when you moved them).Thankfully the old age of the others is offset by their power armor.You lay the scrap outside the base, there really isn't much room for it inside the bunker, but it doesn't stick out that much since piles of scrap are quite commonplace.--CHANGEI have removed option F since it was basically the same as option A.>>>>>A.

>>1429933The Cloud itself is yet another mystery you haven't figured out.

>>1430042We should look into taking over the vaults in the region. A good one to start with is that semi-flooded one that you go through as part of a side-quest, where you need to purge the reactor to either save the vault's people or allow the NCR's farmlands in the region to grow.Depending on the choice, we either get a vault with some serious damage and a ghoul infestation or a with a small population of sentient ghouls.

>>1430130They have their uses.For example: highly radioactive regions can be lived and worked in without issue by both groups. Where as we would require radiation suits and medical treatments.So we can use them to reclaim and work irradiated areas on the cheap.Another good use, as expendable forces. The super mutants are dumb enough to be manipulated by us (we have 10 charisma). Sadly ghouls are not so predictably stupid.

>>1430362Well that's what i thought, but it seems to be we will have to cannibalize our pip-boy, and it seems like a really game breaking thing.I might be able to get over it if QM balances it
>>1430278You decide to make some kind of Universal Tech Scanning device, to analyze how a piece of technology works and give you a way to replicate it. Brilliant! It's the sort of miracle science the NCR would drool at the mouth for.But here in the Sierra Madre the only person you can think of who could come up with that sort of miracle technology is House, and he doesn't even have the chip yet. Although, maybe if he did. . .but even then you doubt he has the right tools currently, and you sure as hell don't.There is only one other place you can think of that such a thing could be made and people who know how to do it is Big MT. And that's exactly where you decide to go.You whip out your Big Mountain Transportalponder! and in a flash of light, you're standing on the Balcony of the SINK. A few more steps away and you're greeted by the ever active inhabitants of the sink. The light switches flirt at you, with a hint of competition between them. Muggy asks you for more cups. The Auto-Doc is glad that you are well and the Blind Diode Jefferson trumpets the arrival of the "conquering hero". The Toaster still demands that you plug him into one of those fancy Fat Man Launchers or a flamethrower.This place was by far the most useful hideout you ever found, a shame only you have any real access to it. You're not entirely sure where in the wasteland Big MT is, and the only way in and out is the transportalponder.Right down to business though, that tech scanner. This feels like a good place to make it, even though you don't know where to begin. You remember exactly how you left this place.>Worked with Doctor Mobius to continue the Charade, and keep the Think Tank from breaking out and unleashing a technological nightmare.

Rolled 86 (1d100)>>1430371>kept the charade up >left the brain behindI never once suffered for it anyway so, why not plus we can get it reinstalled whenever.
>>1430376We could have Dr. Jones and Arcade come have a look at them
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>1430384Sounds good.>>1430371>>1430376Since he's our brain, is it possible us to transfer the knowledge between both our brains together for double the experience?
>>1430384That would require getting them to the big MT. Something we can't do as of now.However, I would argue we have higher priority goals. Like establishing greater control over the Nevada wastes. I have already came up with a few plans to do so if needed.
>>1430400>1Uh ohHERE COME THE CRITS
>>1430403We need to make sure both sides bleed at the damn.>>1430400Fuck you anon.
>>1430400>>1429901>>>>>>Turn: 1>>1430406Wow. We're only in our first turn and we started with a crit fail.
>>1430408We need to take control of the strip, Camp McCarran, the Fort, and westside as the battle is going on. It's going to be close
>>1430424If we can take Vault 3 as a staging point or convince them to attack Camp McCarran on our signal then we can be certain that won't be a problem.
>>1430424If we make them bleed at the Damn, NCR and Legion won't be able to challange us and it depends on how we go with House. We could kill him or set up yes man. The strip quickly falls under our control.
>>1430432But it's better to knock everyone out in one big punch than to let them wither on the vine.>>1430430We can get the fiends to wast themselves at Camp McCarran as we wipe out Vault 3, so they have no base to go back to and we get rid of our fiend problem
>>1430436I don't think you understand, With the losses at the damn and our lack of 'actual' support. Both sides end up being pushed off, Thats proven when you side with yourself/Yes Man/House at the end of the game. We show up en-force and it forces both factions pretty much out of the wasteland. We don't 'need' to attack anybody,
>>1430436I have an idea: we promise them a fuck ton of drugs assuming they attack camp McCarran and bring us someone's head (base officer?) which we will store in the vault while their raiders go out.Then, after having whatever Skeleton crew they leave behind "Taste the product" and either poison them / knock them unconscious, we kill the rest and secure the Vault for their return.At that point it's just a matter of some big guns and a few hundred rounds.Total mission expenditure: drugs / poison, ammo, time and weapons + appropriately trained members to wield them.
>>1430446Of course I know all of that, but Camp McCarran is still going to be occupied. If we can get the fiends and the NCR to fight it out, why wouldn't we? Also, I don't think it was ever CLEARLY said that the NCR pulled out right away
>>1430424>>1430430>>1430432>>1430436So the plan is to make all our enemies go all in on the Battle for Hoover Dam, then wipe them out once they're all at their weakest?>>1430446I think his plan was to make it easier to capture the rest of their territories if they lose all their forces here.
>>1430452And then the other fiends will come back bloody and (beaten?) to find us with a few other securitrons to mow them down. Then we just have to get the Great Kahns to suicide themselves at the dam
>>1430456Yep, easy but efficient
>>1430456>>1430454I'm against us attacking anybody unless we need to. This is the same fucking reason why the Enclave keeps being labeled the bad guy. We're able to pressure and prusade people. We will also be sitting on one of the largest and only power sources that still works after Hover Damn. They want power? They'll listen to us or else.
>>1430461The NCR and the Legion are going to be our enemies any way we look at it. We might as well get as much land as possible. Besides, we aren't going to be attacking anybody, just pitting themselves against each other.Also, the Enclave are the bad guys because they shoot down innocent people and try to release poison into the water system
>>1430456What of the Khans. DO we want them to throw themselves away or can we tame them to our cause. They seem like an amiable source of hands.
>>1430456Essentially. More precisely it is claiming to each faction that they can make their move and defeat / force back their enemies while this is going on and then we sweep in. Clearing out those we dislike or can't absorb and making the rest fall back or surrender.For example: we probably won't do anything to the followers of the apocalypse, the kings and most of the independent towns. If anything we should try and rally them to our cause.We might consider trying to eliminate the remaining BOS in the area. However I would advise trying to let bygones be bygones and get them on our side. We are the only factions with any major understanding of OW tech and at major risk of elimination. Neither of us is strong enough to peruse our ideological ideals nor fully believing of them anymore.We will however attempt to eliminate or play the following forces against each other: Ceasers Legion, NCR, House (possibly), Powder gangers, the new Khans and every other major gang or raider group. However in the case of the Khans, we could attempt to either leave them alone or even ally with them to eliminate the major factions. Seeing as they have the numbers we currently need.
>>1430465In my opinion, the Khans need to be wiped out. if given the chance, they could turn into a big empire.
>>1430465The Khans are isolationists but seemingly willing to do merc work if they need whatever you offer.What we can offer is medicine, clean water and that sort of thing. Also not being on the courier's hit list.
>>1430463The NCR can we be worked with and the Legion falls apart if we don't heal Ceaser's brain tumor. >>1430465Personally, I support them being brought into the fold. Khan's in and of themselves just need guidance and we can give it.>>1430467We're gonna try to recruit the Followers as we're not going the full KILL ALL route of Enclave. Also the BoS won't be Begonias because they only want to seize tech and kill those that oppose them. We might? be able to sway them though.Freeside gangs should be able to bring under our control easily as well.
>>1430481The NCR will be bitter after we turned on them. I wouldn't be surprised if we got put on their shit list. I suppose this will be put up to a vote when the time comes
>>1430483>TurnedI never once said cut off the supply of energy they have in the deal with House or anything. Yes they want to expand but they are currently overstretched and a massive blow like losing the damn but somebody coming forward to negatie with. They'd have to be crazy not to take it. We don't have the forces to destory them, So our best bet is to tie them down while looking still like a semi-good guy.
>>1430490Not having the damn won't cripple them, it is just a boon. At this point, you are gambling that they won't turn bitter. But if you have payed any attention to their lore, you'll see that even though they fight with words, they hold grudges.
>>1430490Also, not helping them take the dam, we are already not on their side. if you're not with the NCR, you're against them
>>1430495we need time, Not just a defeat they can spin as another rallying cry.
>>1430481The BOS might be able to come on side if we rebrand a little and cut a deal where they some fancy tech. McNamara can be convinced to loosen up so to speak. The biggest problem I see is if we actually call ourselves the Enclave.
>>1430502You don't think this will be a defeat for them? Besides, defeat will be welcome in the NCR. Almost no one wants to be in the Mojave.
>>1430505Having former Enclave in our ranks will anger them. I say that we wipe them out, but try to keep the bunker and their tech alive. Maybe some sort of gas in the vents?
>>1430502If they lose here, they loose all momentum. Their mojave force is mainly conscripts and such, so public opinion will turn on Kimball if the war goes sour.
>>1430505We could drop the Enclave name, so long as we keep the inherent goal: the creation of a successor state to the nation of america and the supremacy of the humankind over the wastes.Also, we can probably convince them to join us by pointing out we are aware of where they are and we know the NCR really still hates them.
>>1430467>>1430481>>1430505>>1430513Yeah. Branding is important. Instead of calling ourselves the Enclave, since we're not the massive dicks they originally are, we can call ourselves something like New America or whatever is reminiscent of a true successor state.
>>1430505BoS dies, They are traitors altogether.>>1430507A defeat by the LEGION. Not by this 'new strange faction' That suddenly sprang up on there door-step. Much different.>>1430512And if a new enemy just spring up next door. They'll be worried and recruit even more.>>1430519America sounds like a good ring to it, We're after all rebuilding it hopefully. American Empire sounds better but those in power know 'empires' tend to be bad for the guys next door.
>>1430521>strange new factionThat we lead? What are you really suggesting here?
>>1430519We could go with something snappy like the "Phoenix" initiative / union / conglomerate.
>>1430524Anon for the love of fucking god. We would be a new faction/nation springing up in the wasteland that is siezeing control of it. The people back in the NCR would't know who we are most likely until suddenly this 'new factions' appeared in the 'untamed' wastes of the desert. Too OTHERS we'd be new, Hell we ARE a new faction compared to the others.
>>1430519We'll call ourselves the American Empire. Powerful and will attract a lot of people
>>1430525I was thinking Phoenix Motif's would be apropriate. And reminiscent of Eagles, which is a plus
>>1430532Yeah but the courier is the most well known person in the wastes. Are we gonna have a shadow leader of the faction until after the battle?
>>1430539That could be done: after all, the wastes are full of surprises...
>>1430541And the NCR doesn't suspect anything?
>>1430525>>1430535A Phoenix or something like a burning Eagle? American Phoenix? Sounds cool. Also sounds like a name choice that isn't normally taken. Phoenix Union sounds closest to the image we're projecting.>>1430533>>1430521It does, but that sort of name is bad for branding if we're talking about anyone who isn't us.
>>1430539>most known person in the wastesAt NO point was I talking about that, I was talking about what will the people back in NCR HELD LAND BE TOLD? A NEW FACTION HAS RISEN FROM THE WASTELANDS. Lead by a savage who will rape there women and childrenYOU KNOW, PR SHIT TO GET WAR SUPPORT AGAINST THESE NEW GUYS.How much fucking easier do I need to spell this out for you? Do I need to give you fucking meaning of every god damn fucking word so you understand what I am getting at or are you just here to troll?>>1430547>Bad branding>Literally going with the name America>This makes people just think we're gonna kill them.I'm sorry what?
>>1430552>>Literally going with the name AmericaThe "Empire" part of America is what I"m referring to. Drop that and I think they'd be cool.
>>1430552empire dummy. People like democratic sounding names. Makes them feel like a part of it. >>1430547Phoenix Syndicate? Federation?
>>1430543We'd just need a cover story...something they can't confirm but they could see as true...I've got it! Another survivor from the same place as the "burned man" who fought under the Legion. Outside of their control and sight but they know it exists to some degree.
>>1430553I'm perfectly okay with dropping the Empire part for the time being. We're too be a new America that's founded through both the Sword and Pen. Sorry>>1430555He pointed it out, I'm just super salty at the moment because of some fucking idiot. Also checked.
>>1430555Go with union. As syndicate implies criminality and Federation implies independent parties working together.
>>1430552First of all, you're getting too angry over something that can be talked out. You obviously don't have a level head. The NCR can spin anything anyway they want, but people want out of the Mojave
>>1430558Most of the people in America are uneducated. They would rather a simple name that has ties to a better time
Damn this reminds me of southern cross.I LIKE IT!
>>1430563What's Southern Cross?
>>1430560They do and will want it even more if they think that more and more factions are spawning and working against them.If we can have the Boomers do an attack run over as many NCR positions as possible with us calling out the attacked locations over the radio (thus showing it was our faction) they'll know that another factions has arrived. One that has better tech than them it would seem.A compatible move in fiction would be found in the stories of the Foundation: where they lied about having nuclear arms to stave off attack from other planets and empires.
>>1430555Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.Phoenix Federation sounds the most democratic out of all of them, and one of the ones that roll off the tongue best, but >>1430558 and >>1430561 have a point.>>1430557That's fine, maybe I should've highlighted that part earlier, but I figured it would be assumed.>>1430555>>1430557Oh hey, didn't even notice those trips.
>>1430566There was a old fallout civ quest here once, i and the other anons voted for fanatic christian bandits.I had such plans and i hope to use them here.
>>1430568I would really not like to destroy their buildings, but we can if we must
>>1430560Or your fucking retarded because I have tried to point out the issue here and you don't understand in any fashion.>>1430568We have 1 bomber that can easily be shot out of the sky and more COMBAT actions we pull against the easier they can spin it so they actually get people pumped up for another war. Which we will lose.
>>1430561True but that doesn't mean we should change it from Union.Other alternatives by the way were: Hierarchy, zone, combine, state, kingdom, territories, autocracy, technocracy, Imperium, order and authority.E.g "The Phoenix _____"
>>1430573We can still make it happen, zealot warriors.Just be sure these zealots aren't going to go off the deep end.
>>1430578>Or your fucking retardedHey friend, there's no need for that kind of language
>>1430582It's too late, anon. We're already having a Fallout.
>>1430576This is war and I understand, anon, wanting to preserve their bases. However I would point out that we lack the needed manpower to make use of them and that most of what they have is essentially just ruins with some plywood and scrap metal bolted onto the holes. We can replace them fairly quickly if it comes to it.>>1430578The world of fallout hasn't seen a bomber fly outside of Enclave or BOS hands in more than 200 years. Why would they expect one now?Also you are doubting the bombing capabilities of a B-29, seeing as it could probably fly higher than most of their guns would be effective.
>>1430579>order and authority.>order>E.g "The Phoenix _____"The Order of the Phoenix?
>>1430595No. We are not becoming a walking harry potter reference...we lack the castle for that...
>>1430589I'm fine. We'll bomb important positions
>>1430376>>1430400As you walk down the steps toward the Think Tank a tremendous explosion rocks you off your feet as the building shakes.Never worry that's a common occurrence here, happens every once in a while.Then several more huge explosions make you roll around on the floor again. Okay, that is not normal.Neither are the Red Alarms, the Sirens, and the sounds of massed laser fire and machines.The Think Tank's door's open and you walk inside. The windows are all sealed shut, the entire room illuminated only by red light. Behind the metal shudders, you hear the faint sounds of battle and energy weapons."Dr. Mobius! Oh, thank goodness you've arrived!" says Dr. 0, who like the rest of the think tank still believe you are Dr. Mobius' brain inside the Lobotomite. "We desper-""I'LL HANDLE THIS DR. ZERO. GREETINGS DR. MOBIUS, EVERYTHING IS PERFECTLY UNDER CONTROL.""Under control! We're under attack!""NONSENSE. I ASSURE YOU WE ARE NOT UNDER ATTACK. I HAVE EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL."The building shakes again, and a piece of steel from the roof falls and lands right next to Dr. Mobius."AHH! DID YOU SEE THAT, I COULD HAVE SERIOUSLY INJURED MY BRAIN- I MEAN. AHEM, EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL. ANY NOTIONS THAT WE ARE UNDER ATTACK BY INVADERS WHO ARE OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW IS. . .NONSENSE!">con't
>>1430601>The building shakes again, and a piece of steel from the roof falls and lands right next to Dr. Mobius.*Right next to Dr. Klein
>>1430595What happens if we control more than just Arizona? I think we should have America in our name somewhere, to attract people who recognize that name
>>1430547>>1430607Well I had American Phoenix as a suggestion earlier, but that sounds more like our national animal than our nation's name.>>1430579The Phoenix of America? Hm, sounds more like a name a red baron would have.The American Union is the best I could come up with, or American Federation to make it sound better. The Colombian Union?
>>1430615Columbian Union, I meant. New American Republic?
>>1430615The American Phoenix sounds fucking cool. That could be our national animal. The New American "Republic" sounds good, except it is kinda similar to the NCR. Maybe just the American Republic?
>>1430615America, Short sweet and simple. It reminds people of the great old world America, And many as I once said before don't have a good education and would't get the whole 'rising from the ashes' thing.>>1430621>New American republic sounds like NCR>American republic doesn'tI don't believe i need to point out the flaw in that terrible trolling there.
>>1430622>I don't like what you said so it's trollingAre you the troll? Who's trolling who here?
>>1430622>>American republic doesn'tAll you need to do is remove the word "New" and I guess that's all you need to make a big enough distinction.>America, Short sweet and simple.America sounds good for our purposes, just welcome people to America and see what happens.
>>1430634Thats why I keep suggesting if and when we get to the point of naming. It should just be America. It'll ring home to all the uneducated people in the wasteland and elsewhere while also declaring our purpose to those with a proper education. Its also much simpler in general for everybody in the 'fallout' verse anyway.
I like the Phoenix idea.
>>1430641I like America too. But would it really just be america? I think there needs to be something else. We are the US, the United States, the United States of America, America, Americans, etc.
>>1430652How about Nuclear America?
>>1430626>This level of shitposting.No. Get out with that junk.What are you talking about, anyways? Did you come to the wrong thread?
>>1430634We can be the American Restoration Front, ARF.
>>1430665That could be the name of our Army?
Honestly don't see that much of a need to have the brand America in it. Perhaps do something new. If it is to be centered around Vegas and the Mojave, I'd go with the Vegas Republic.If we are stuck with branding it with "America," I'd simply go with America. Not many these days call their nations as their titles. Britain, France, US. America is fine enough to stand on its own.
>>1430601>>1430641Now I wonder, what's the general level of education in Fallout? Clearly they seem fairly intelligent if they're capable of reading.>>1430671Name ourselves something like the Phoenix Union of America, otherwise known as America?>>1430665>>1430668That'd be a good name for our armed forces, yeah.
>>1430691Not that high sense Schooling isn't really a thing to the general masses it seems. Outside of certain areas.
>>1430691Super dumb. You'll find some with basic education, some with college, but the majority are uneducated. The first thing we should set up, after the basics, is a good education system
>>1430691General education is poor. NCR likely has something halfway decent, but that would likely be the extent of it outside of a home-schooling system in small communities.As for the name, that's more of a mouthful than anything. No reason to have the "Phoenix" part in there, despite pushing for that whole "rebirth" angle. Doesn't do much for us. Besides that, I doubt most outside the Followers and some really smart/wealthy in the NCR would understand the symbolism.
>>1430691I imagine core NCR and places like that are pretty good, a bit behind prewar. The OSR needs to pick its recruits from someplace. Vegas and surrounding territories probably aren't that good, but the people are resourceful enough.
>>1430601This goes on for a while and you decide to demand to see what is outside."EHM . . .VERY WELL DR. MOBIUS. TAKE A LOOK OUTSIDE AND SEE HOW I HAVE EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL"The windows open.You see, crashed into one side of Big MT what looks like a huge, enormous crashed Saucer. It's bisecting the Radar Fence, which is cackling around it.Looking down below you see utter chaos. Massed lobotomites, zombie spacemen with laser weapons, cyberdogs, robots and monsters are fighting things coming out of the Saucer. Robots which hover over the ground and launch sphere's of plasma, smooth almost shell shaped turrets firing blasts of energy that shine like magnesium and . . .them.Aliens.You killed tree or four on a smaller crashed saucer, its where you got the Alien blaster and a couple of power cells but. . .never in this number. There must be hundreds down there, maybe thousands! All huddled around their ship and firing away at the scientific madness unleashed by the facility, which seems to keep belching out more and more. >Dr Borous"Several weeks ago, we noticed something on our scientific telescopes pointed at the celestial heavens. A huge flash of light raced across the easten sky, like a giant laser beam! Then yesterday there were lots of smaller little bursts of light in the sky, as if two lobotomies were firing their little laser pistols at each other in a duel to the death. A little while later, there was a tremendous flash in the sky like an enormous explosion of epic proportions. Our radars came to life to blare a warning at us, heralding a mysterious and enigmatic object falling from the sky. There was the greatest explosion ever felt since the explosion that tore the mountain off of Big Mountain. It went something like this:BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!Then the dust began to settle, and we saw out there a kind of fallen round thing, all made of strange metal. The inhabitants inside came out and attacked, and the many little creatures of Big Mountain came out to attack them in turn. It is like staring at a microscopic image of a foreign body injecting an animal, and watching all the little animal immune cells moving out to attack.">Dr 0"All our research facilities have been severely disrupted, we're down to 5% research capability.">Dr Dala"You've got to help us Dr. Mobius! All those poor little skinvelopes, and their precious tissue and organs, their bodily orifice and extremities, suddenly being turned into a pile of ash! It's. . .awful!">con't
>>1430706To be honest, they symbolism may conect more than we think.Consider, it isn't a obscure cultural reference. It is a common mythological creature and used in multiple phrases and idioms. Thus the chances are it survived the apocalypse pretty well.

>>1430714Observing the fight from the Think Tank windows you can see that nothing is able to get close to the big Saucer, there's just way too much fire. Energy weapons, bullets, and rockets launched at the Saucer directly seem to crash into some sort of shield erected around it.Needless to say, this is not good news at all.>>>>>A.

>>1430706>>1430691Yeah, that was just a suggestion to emulate the USA's name. Maybe something like the Reborn Union of America, or the American Union, otherwise known simply as "America" since the USA is colloquially referred to that. Just something so the abbreviated version of the name can distinguish us from the continent.

>>1430725You, the Courier, have never been inside a spacehip before. You've seen the burnt out wreck of a flying saucer but it was nothing compared to this.
>>1430718...I have very few plans to deal with this BUT I have one potential plan.It is insane, ballsy and requires some massive engineering. We need to re-mount this and point it at the saucerhttp://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/X-7a_%22Left_Field%22_Artillery_Launch
>>1430718Wait, do we have an option to interfere with the fight for our settlement action?>>1430717Looks like all those mad science experiences are going to be put to use after all.
>>1430735I vote to do this to deal with the aliens, but I hope we can still do an action
>>1430735I like this plan. I'm with this guy.
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>1430718>Call up Morbius and tell him to send roboscorpions to kill the aliens.>>1430725We never went to Zeta. That was the Lone Wanderer from 3. The Courier just killed a small scout party,because its a wild wasteland out there. But this is his fault.
>>1430718>>1430736Wait, don't we still have the Helios Array? Can't we just fire an orbital laser at it?
>>1430744>>1430735Mislinked. How much time do we have for that engineering project?
>>1430744...so you don't want to use the giant death cannon?Fine...we will do it your ordinary, boring, orbital death-beam way...
>>1430745As long as it takes for the Aliens to kill or be killed by the shit that runs around in the Big MT.So...a few days to a few weeks at least. Depending on how willing to retreat and be aggressive they (the aliens) are.
>>1430752>>1430745>>1430738>>1430740I want to point out, That canon if it hits and destroys the sauce will probably level the entire area around it, Meaning we lose alot. Also, Did the Zeta ship fire and bring this one down?
>>1430757Big Mt. can't get any more fucked up
>>1430766Them famous last words of a place that gets even more fucked up.
>>1430746>>1430752>>1430757So two part plan, we use the orbital laser to hound them, and then mount our heavier weapons like mini-nuke launchers on some of the tankier units we have to then finish them off?This sounds like a time to bring out the big guns, but I'm not sure if this is the scale where we should obliterate the entire facility just yet.
>>1430757It won't do that much damage. Seeing as we know where the cannon hits.http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/X-7b_%22Boom_Town%22_target_zoneSo really the question is, do we think that this will manage to defeat it's shields.Also, it has an infinite ammo supply in game so we can just keep firing for a significant period of time...
>>1430776I kinda want to keep the U.F.O intact to research it but i have no idea how to do that.
>>1430718I wpuld suggest researching a way to bypass the shields (and hopefully reverse engineer them) in order to turn this to advantage.Alternatively research a way to teleport fatmen inside saucer.

You consider ways to Hack the shields. This time that’s not so simple. You doubt they would have a terminal anywhere but in the heart of the ship, and there’s no telling if you could understand it. Plus, that level of firepower is too much even for you.You do remember that a shield is still made of energy. And that Dr. Mobius himself erected the shields around the facility. These shields were able to be modulated to allow humans with brains to walk right through (such as Elijah, Ulysses, and Christine), while preventing mutations and abominable technology from leaving. If he could figure out a way to let things selectively pass through these shields, perhaps his was the key to bypassing these shields?You make your way to the Forbidden zones, blasting and slashing a few things that got in your way (and a few more than didn’t, for fun). You see Dr. Mobius writing more equations on the floor, while your brain is snoring in a nap, a chess board set in front of it.“Oh hello there, have we met?” Dr. Mobius greets you, as he has several times. Rather than trying to make him remember who you are you simply start explaining the situation, and he gets up to speed, listening.“Hmmmm, that is quiet the consumption, er, cofunction. . .”“Conundrum?”“No no no, my Radar Fence works by detecting whether something has a human brain in a human body or not, and if it does then it modulates the frequency of the Fence’s wavelength to let them pass.”“Could such a modulation be remotely applied to something else, like, a different energy shield? Perhaps even to allow all things to pass through?”“Hmmm . . .I would say its not implausible. . .or is it improbable?”“Impossible?”“No again! It’s entirely possible. Here, let me show you.”>con't
>>1431240Several hours later and a lot of hard work, you stand with Dr. Mobius on the balcony of the Forbidden Zone.A great hangar door opens up to the Forbidden Zone, and walking right out of it is the newly rebuilt Giant Robo Scorpion. A very special modification has been added to its stinger, resembling one of the Radar Fence pylon's mixed in with a large Dish.The idea was to analyze what frequency the alien Ship's shields were at, and then modulate it to allow objects to pass through."Oh I haven't said this in a long time. GIANT ROBO SCORPION, ATTACK!"The Robo Scorpion raises its stinger toward the giant Saucer, first analyzing the shields. Then after some time, something ripples the air like an intense heat or microwave ray, in a straight line between the Scorpion and the alien ship.It works! Suddenly the massed creatures and projectiles that were held back by the alien shield now pass through freely, and monsters and gunfire begin to slaughter the line of aliens defending the ship.This goes on for about 10 minutes as the aliens are driven back, before the shields start vibrating and changing color. Then the next wave of monstrous creatures slams into shield again, stopped dead in their tracks. What happened?"Oh my. . .it seems like the vessel's shields have somehow re-molded, er. . .remodeled""Remodulated""No that's-"A tremendous explosion sends you both reeling as the Scorpion is blown up (damn). Furthermore the ship does something far worse.Some sort of projector array sticks out from the Saucer, aimed at the Radar fence! You see the same tell-tale beam working on it, and the whole energy dome around Big MT start to shutter.What follows next is a terrible sight. Flocks of Cazadores and critters flying through the shields, lobotomites brought out by the noise looking up, and then immediately following clambering through the now phased shields. Other monsters and monstrosities follow them, some as big as Old World buses, heading off into the distance.>Alien Ship's Shields are still up!>Big MT Shields are being phased!>ALERT! Abominations are escaping!
>>1431280...so on a scale of 1 to 5 hellish occurrences. This is a sold 20.

>>1431309That's the way it rolls my man. It's best of 3, unless a crit takes place.Still for some balance if another 1 appears I will invoke the Rule of 3.Every thread if 3 1's are rolled in the thread, a 4th one will be considered a 100.The same is true for the converse, if you keep pumping out 100s for three times in a row, I'm going to make the 4th count as a 1.
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>1431322Fix the shields
>>1431322Why not just go with best of 3, Critics within that take priority and any Outside are ignored. Unless I just misread this. I can't see why we'd run this differently then any other quest.
>>1431322I believe that makes some sense.
>>1431331There are also other hidden roll equations, like bonuses for certain combination of dubs and special numbers, these will become even more prominent the bigger your faction gets.They close and open doors, useful in this situation.The main reason however is that if someone rolls a 100, it will still count even if its not the first three rolls. Same goes for the special roll combo's
>>1431344I'd personally rather that the 100 didn't count but thats my own thoughts on the matter. Thanks for clearing it up.

I go to work for 6 hours and now Aliens have let the lobotomites breach the damn shields.Those extra-terrestrials should consider themselves as good as dead for this shit.
>>1431619After this we should make a campaign poster along the lines of "REMOVE AYY LMAOS!"
>>1431623I vote we salvage the spaceship and make it our new headquarters if we don't blow it up.
>>1431631Like in XCOM 2? Sounds like a plan. What about the bunker?
>>1431637Why don't we just slap the ship on top of the bunker?
>>1431639>The bunker>Thats supposed to remain hidden>Has a giant Space ship above it now.I.. don't think thats how you be sneaky.
>>1431644We can always find more dirt to put on it anon. That's like the Mojave's number one export behind bullet holes and gecko bites.

>>1431654>sub 110 degrees Fahrenheit for once>"...nuclear winter?"
>>1431639>>1431644Plus just docking it on top of the bunker doesn't sound like a good way of keeping it in storage.>>1431647What about the airport around the Boomer's Airport? If we can try getting landing rights, we'll have one of the best spots for a UFO.>>1431654>when they have shade to stand under for once.>when they have shadeOur UFO will blot out the sun!
>>1431665>Nellis Air Force BaseWhy the fuck didn't I think of that
I forget, have we decided what we did with Helios One yet?
>>1431668It happens to the best of us.>>1431670Nope.
>>1431631Just remember The LW has Zeta, so we don't want to be too conspicuous about flying around in it. He probably hate the Enclave on principle.
>>1431686>Not siding with the Enclave and purging the filth from the land.its almost like you don't understand how badly radiation effects dna.
>>1431686Well he's a 19 year old punk from a shitty game and we're probably 20 levels ahead of him.Who cares what the Lone Wanderer has to say about jack-shit. We're the Courier.
>>1431697Yes, but he has an operational mothership, that shot this one out of the sky. >>1431690Aren't we filth? We have no evidence of being anything but born in the wastes, and were in the wastes for our adult lives at least. We're classic Enclave impure.
>>1431709I guess this brings up a good question.Are we gonna start a war with LW's hometown down the line?I'd be all for it just to have a fight between perfect stat characters.
>>1431709wait, don't the events of fallout 3 take place 4 years before new vegas.
>>1431716depends on how succesful our rebrand is, and how far we take classic Enclave ideology. Do we exterminate the ghouls and supermutants? what about the wastelanders?
>>1431716What about the common wealth
>>1431726>Do we exterminate the ghouls and supermutants?No, but we certainly don't advocate for their spread across the wastes.>what about the wastelandersWhat a weird way to say American citizens.
>>1431726We put them to work in radatied zones and stuff like that. no reason to kill useful working stock. We just don't let them breed, Which they really can't do already.
>>1431722LW leaves the vault in 2277, Courier gets popped in 2281, so 4 years. LW is 23 ish, and hero of the BOS. They probably still have a Lyons in charge.
>>1431733okay. just establishing, cause president computer wanted to kill everyone born in the wastes. We're obviously a softer Enclave.
>>1431738I was more talking about the fact that this ship we're dealing with should have crashed into Earth 4 years before now. Unless DLC timeline fuckery has occurred.
Here's some music for you all.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhfutrDBCCc
>>1431743Not wanting to murder mostly innocent mutants by virtue of fucked up genetic code doesn't make us soft.Old Enclave was retarded about how they did things some times.
>>1431757Colonel Autumn had the right idea with Project Purity
>>1431747Unlike the Courier, the Lone Wanderer has the choice to play the DLC after he finishes his main plotline.
The most logical thing to do you realize is also try to remodulate the Radar Fence. Thankfully it seems Dr. Mobius specific brand of madness and chaotic equations is good for this, and it seems like he had been anticipating a day where the Think Tank might attempt to breech the shields.But for every new frequency and curve ball you throw at them, the aliens eventually wise up and phase the shields again. So far the best you can manage is intervals of about an hour, followed by short moments of about 5 minutes where the aliens phase the fence and you try to remodulate them.You consider rebuilding the Scorpion again to try and phase the aliens shields, even for a brief moment, giving you an opening for something, about five minutes, though you aren’t sure what to do with that opening.
In the spare time in between the time the aliens have yet to "remoderate" the shields, Dr. Mobius and your Brain continue their game of chess.---->>>>>A. Scavenge (for what)>>>>>B.

Rolled 74 (1d100)>>1432357>>>>>>A. Scavenge (for what)Look around the dead aliens and lobotimites for any weapons or ammo. Also, I think we should begin to hoard Battle Rifles and Service Rifles to eventually outfit our army
--CHANGE--To help smoothen some aspects of gameplay, I am now allowing you 1 optional Hero Action per turn.Since very often the Courier may be away from his base on important missions, it doesn't make sense to limit your options to only where the courier is.Therefore, in addition to your>Civ Actionyou may take one>Hero Actionfor your Courier who is of a sufficient level to offer thisNote that if you do choose to take the one Civ Action, your hero is automatically applied to it, making it far more powerful.Conversely, Civ Actions without your hero are limited to what your members are capable of accomplishing. Note that this usually means your best members, such as Arcade or Kreger, and whatever stats they have.
>>1432396You do not always have to pick a Hero Action, but you do need Civ Actions to advance the turn.Sufficiently level your other heroes and they may provide their own hero actions.Currently the Courier is something of a Jack of All Trades, other heroes who you nurture and specialize may become more powerful than the Courier in their own special task.
>>1432396Ah okay, well that's cool. Unfortunately we are in the Big Empty and only the Courier can be around.
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>1432384Supporting.
>>1432402We can task the scientists of the region to do shit though. Though admittedly they are both insane and also incapable of anything but research. Potentially they could do some prototyping / construction.
>>1432411Not to mention you have yet to recruit the Think Tank to your cause, as well their own capabilities are limited as the whole of Big MT is in chaos.
>>1432411Well we could always have Arcade and Dr. Jones come take a look if we could either get them out of Big Mt. or get them into Big Mt. or even take samples from the robots
>>1432415I misspoke, the Think Tank are definitely working with you as "Dr. Mobius" in exchange for some access to materials and assets from outside Big MT.However its not total loyalty/subordination like you have with your 7 members. They will likely demand items in exchange for research.They are however, by far the most powerful researchers of the game (currently).
>>1432418Oh cool so they're not total failures. If we fix this stuff with Big Mt. will they join our cause?
>>1432420The implication is they are with our cause, just they expect to be catered to to some degree.
>>1432420Technically speaking they count as a Friendly/Allied faction right now, permitting you their research. To have them become fully integrated to your cause would require you to figure out a way for them to believe in the American Dream again, but then of course, alerting them to the presence of the outside world might have unforeseen consequences.
>>1432422Alright I am sure that later down the line once we have some semblance of a nation, they'll decide to help.
>>1432423Oh they'd love to help.Help beyond what anyone could ever conceive of.
>>1432427I'm worried now
>>1432384Wait are we going to broadcast this through a third party? Or directly by us?>>1432396How many Caps do we have? I am assuming we have the gold from the Sierra Madre?
>>1432430Directly. Try and mask it to prevent detection.>>1432422We could preach about how supporting America will allow us to bring in new test subjects into Big MT.
>>1432430Generally speaking you have enough caps to purchase whatever you want for your character. Cap number will become more relevant in terms of faction needs, such as buying food for entire villages from caravans for example.As for whether or not you got the Gold out of the Sierra Madre.Roll me a 1d1000. Very first one counts.

Rolled 38 (1d100)>>1432357>Dr. Movies and the bar think and work on the whole being down the ships shields.>>1432384>radarYou mean radio which can then be traced back to us and our cover blown right? Thus bringing down the hammer of both NCR or Legion?
>>1432448That's why it's at Black Mountain. Even if they trace it there, what are they gonna find?
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>1432357>>1432396Not sure which it is free but go with either the civ or hero?>try the shields again after fixing the spread and don't try to sync do some other werid idea.
>>1432451An OLD world radar array that is fully operational and rather loaded with useful goods that they can now ship home to help rebuild other shit with?
>>1432457Well I would have thought that we A. Pay Mercenaries to guard this base with, and we B. Put traps and other warnings. The NCR already knows that Black Mountain has a working radar station. They just don't care for now. It's not like they have the manpower to take it anyway
>>1432457That wouldn't really help them.Consider the fact that they would need a way of pinpointing the broadcast, something quite rare for their tech level, then they need to gather the troops and gear to go and capture the place. Something they are lacking given the fact that they are placing troops in defensive positions to prepare for the second battle of the dam. They lack the numbers to go and chase every single random threat to them when there is a major one looming on the horizon.Also, they would then need to find a way to disassemble and transport that shit across the wastes, a place filled with bands of raiders and an active enemy force fighting them.Lastly, we can easily set up some simple defences and decoys to hold them back and convince them that the place is heavily defended.
>>1432465A drain of limited caps if we hire Mercs and B. Your forgetting the legion well know for it's covert strikes and/or BoS, Mr. House who could see the value in having the working station under there control.Also just wanna point out again. Radar arrays do not broadcast like radios.
>>1432468Well it's a good thing that the Black mountain RADIO STATION isn't a radar array.As to the Legion, they aren't a threat. They don't care for having the public's support and thus would merely see it as a benefit: it disrupts the support of the NCR in the region and distracts them from their operations.As to mister House, he already has plenty of transmission systems under his control (seeing as he controls his securotrons remotely) with his access to the New Vegas Radio Station.
>>1432468QM said that we have the caps to do whatever we want as long as it's not about a settlement. hiring 15 or so mercs would be like 10k caps at most. As for the Legion, we are very far inland from any Legion bases, especially cottonwood cove. If they want to strike, their team is going to be small and cut off. As long as our defences are good and we have good mercs, we'll be fine.The BoS are not in any position to start attacking and taking things from outside places
>>1432469>>1432471I'm retarded. I thought black mountain was radar, this is what I get for posting and waking up. My bad.I suggest we broadcast from it after hover dam. Not before, we don't want anybody to know the full extent of our powers until we're for a grand debut. We are kinda like Cuba or some other crappy place squished between the USSR and NATO at war.
>>1432472But if Cuba was led by a man that could take on a hundred men at once and win, and that could literally make or break a nation. Also, we still have to decide what we did at the end of The Divide
Rolled 52 (1d100)Anybody know what happened to Nipton?>>1432472Supporting
>>1432436>270To your deepest regret, you never were able to get that Gold. You realized it would have weighed you down and your collar would have exploded before you could escape.You remember Elijah is probably dead inside the Vault with the gold, and how real nations like the NCR and America once used gold to back their actual currencies.You wonder if its possible to back there with a Big MT cutting tool of sorts and get into that Vault.But that would also mean going back to the hellhole of the Sierra Madre.
>>1432473And your right. It's only a 100 men, now what happens when more then 100 come? We are a monster but that does not mean we're always gonna be inviable or be everywhere that's attacked.You guys need to stop thinking with an into of 3 and instead put that 10 on. We need to subtlety gain power. Not just start broadcasting and hiring mercs which most likely have legion spies in some or report to either side in some fashion. This is an actual war thing, not a set designed game with 1 ending. Enemies would do logic and tactical stuff.
>>1432476God damn it. Well in the future, we need that gold to back our new currency.But muh 955
>>1432478I was actually agreeing with you here for once, kinda of. We shouldn't go out to start raiding ncr outposts. However, we are setting ourselves up so that when the Battle comes, everything that can go wrong for the NCR and Legion, WILL go wrong. The people will turn on them, they will lose their main bases, their hold on New Vegas will evaporate, their outposts will be destroyed, their slave bases obliterated. We are setting up this beautiful Rube Goldberg machine of fuckery that is going to be beautiful on that day

>>1432511>>1430044>"To ensure survival knowledge of all the outposts was kept a closely guarded secret, given to only a handful at a time. Most likely now only the seven of us here knows this base exists.""I don't know of any other outposts or supply stations either, just this one."
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>1432507I suggest sending him to talk with the followers then. Would seem rather useful then this whole boardcasting business.
>>1432515Damn. Well if you give the enclave something, they knew how to keep tight lips."Hey Arcade, would the followers leave the "bosom" of the NCR if there was another faction that would support their endeavors if they became an official part of the government?
>>1432517"I can't say for sure all of the followers would flock to their banner, especially the University in Bone Yard, but like I said things have gotten pretty sour between the NCR and the Followers.At least here in the Mojave if such a faction were to offer protected and supplied base of operation like the NCR is doing at Old Mormon Fort, it's definitely doable.There is the matter of our 'Trying to reform the Enclave'. The mere mention of that name isn't a very strong incentive for anyone, but with your reputation and my vouching for you I might be able to sway most of them if you can set up a base for them.It'd need to be someone where they can continue their medical work, in proximity to Vegas and Freeside."
>>1432521I'm thinking we could give them the old NCR embassy after we kick them out
>>1432521Why not operate directly out of new vegas?
>>1432528>>1432530"That would require taking New Vegas out of the hands of both Mr. House and the NCR, and their supporters."
>>1432533"Mr house is not a problem. So long as he thinks his little empire is safe, he won't make a move."
>>1432533Well of course Arcade. Just keep it in mind in these upcoming weeks.
>>1432533What will happen to the economy if we position ourselves as the enemy of the NCR instead of a moment that simply wants freedom for the wasteland ?

>>1432540QM may I suggest any action be disregarded if it does not match a high into level? We are a maxed int char afterall. What benefit do we gain by letting slip a new faction is forming?
>>1432545Mate you lost a vote. Accept it.
[Spread Propaganda]You decide to start advertising your faction, and yourself, to the Mojave using the newly gained Black Mountain Radio. You consider that there are several ways to go about this.CHOOSE:>Just have the Devil's Brigade play some old Enclave tapes that talk about America>Sit down at the Sink with Blind Diode Jefferson and try to make some recorded messages from yourself and music to go with it>Look through Big MT's files for some old American Propaganda tapes>Other/Write in?You also consider ways to bring down the Alien's shield.CHOOSE:>Plan of assault! - Focus on creating a wavelength modulation that takes the shields down in one big burst, just long enough for you and some assembled Big MT forces to attack through the front door until you can get inside to disrupt their shields>Plan of sneak! - Attempt to sneak into the ship single handed, you believe there are some tunnel networks and hidden paths that might go under the shields to get you there.>Plan of siege! - Just hit it with everything we got! Fix the Left Field Artillery to turn and fire at it, use the Archimedes II, launch the MIRV fat man.>Other/Write in?
>>1432568>>Other/Write in?Sit Moreno down and have him talk about all the positives of the old US and why we need to return to it. He will also talk bad about both the NCR and the Legion>Plan of assault! - Focus on creating a wavelength modulation that takes the shields down in one big burst, just long enough for you and some assembled Big MT forces to attack through the front door until you can get inside to disrupt their shields
>>1432568>plan assault>have a sit down and talk
>>1432572I'll support this.
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>1432568>>14325723rd. Currently we're specced for assault and having some units to wear their own forces down will make it safer for us.Are we still rolling or is this just a course of action from our original rolls?
>>1432609Woops, forgot to remove the dice.
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>1432568I forgot my roll for my vote here >>1432582
>>1432572My roll here
>>1432506>Rolled 90 (1d100)>>1432540So that was our initial roll for what happens, I guess.

Rolled 31 (1d100)>>1432572
>>1432568Oh yeah, just so you guys know, since we're on a rule of 3, our 4th or next 1 will net us the equivalent to a 100.
>>1432662That isn't how Rule of 3 works.It's if you get 3 100's or 1's on a specific roll. Not every third time it reverses.
>>1432669>>1432662anon has it right the first time, yes the next 1 you roll will be a 100. After that a 1s a 1 for 3 times in a row.>>1432572[LOCKED]>Writing
>>1431322>>1432669We're on a different variation of the system here.>>1432671So how often do you expect to be looking for those duplicate post numbers?
>>1433309I think anon was confused. He deleted his post.
>>1433344I figured as much, which is why I deleted my post in respect to him.
>>1433364Yeah, that kid was a fucking idiot
>>1433373WHAt happened, missed it
>>1433380Some anon tried linking the QM's news handle, but got the wrong QM.
We ourselves aren't revealing ourselves and our ties to the enclave right? We need to take over new vegas first.
>>1433543Not revealing ourselves and our ties to the enclave. However we are creating a radio station to automatically broadcast anti-NCR and anti-Legion messages while implying that a third way exists.
>>1433567I imagine those are't too uncommon in the frontiers of NCR territory. New citizens and not much support from federal.
>>1433585Not true. As most of the border regions are not as populated as this, technologically as advanced as this or able to resist as this.This is one of the few regions that they have conflict with the Legion, we are the people who know and can say for certain that the NCR is not invincible and that they are not all they promise.
>>1433677Well, not the radio network, but the sentiments are probably not unique.
>>1433713Almost certainly and that is what we are capitalising on.We want to be the NCR but less corupt.We will be the Legion but more Humane.We will bring about a new world order to rival eden.
>>1433797The Enclave but more likable
Is it too late to change the kind of gear we have in storage?
Did QM skadoodle on us?
>>1433282>>1433900No still here sorry fella's I actually have work and IRL too.Good news is I'm home now

>>1432572>Sit Moreno down and have him talk about all the positives of the old US and why we need to return to it. He will also talk bad about both the NCR and the Legion>>1432506>>Rolled 90 (1d100)You had a set plan in mind, and understood that there were many possible pitfalls to this plan but thankfully you decided to talk with your brain and hammer them out.You'd sit Moreno down in front of the Radio and brief him thoroughly. You yourself used a voice changer you got from Blinde Diode Jefferson, so as to not yet tip off your voice and involvement. You still might have use of being able to walk in NCR and Legion lands.With such planned and overt talk on US and American ideals, it was unavoidable that many if not the NCR might immediately label this radio "Enclavist" or "Fanatical Nostaligia". But you felt prepared for that.At first Moreno seems a bit microphone shy, and you have to prompt him to keep talking several times, mostly about why he believes in America and the American dream. And then, as if tired of these repetitive questions, he gets pissed off.And it works brilliantly.He starts to talk about his life in NCR controlled territory, about being treated like a squatter, pushed out of his house and home. About how the NCR delivered promise after promise of food, saftey, security and failed each and every time. Raiders and monsters roaming freely, the streets unsafe to walk at night, the Legion at the doorstep. Everyone knows they've failed and no one seems to want to speak up about it. His rant becomes a fury and you see the built up bitterness of decades of NCR abuse pour forth from his lips in a symphony of anger, appealing to those whom the NCR have failed, abused, even ejected from their lands for not fitting in. He stands up and raises his arms, yelling out like a master orator, and you wish to the gods this was a holotape projection its golden.At the end of it he's left breathing hard, sweaty, but having spoken his mind. You review his message and feel its solid, you bad mouthed the NCR for its failures, corruption, and ineptitude. Moreno remembered to shut his lip about Ghouls and Supermutants and even chipped in a good word for a Super Mutant named "Frank Horrigan". There wasn't much talk about the Legion but it isn't as if the Legion was very popular in the first place. And House was called nothing but a "parasitic ghost living off of NCR's dirty blood".>con't
>>1434139>old man yells at clouds.jpg
>>1434139You travel around the Mojave for a bit after that, wanting to see who has been listening. In places with heavy NCR presence like the Strip few people are listening to it (at least, not openly) and where you do hear about it such as in Camp McCarran rumors that the NCR is planning to silence it.Sadly this includes Boone who isn't happy at all. He says for all the NCR's faults it IS keeping the Legion at bay, and this "third party" seems like nothing but Legion propaganda.Ironically on the Legion side they hardly seem to mind, and like the idea of the NCR falling apart from the inside.Other places however the message seems to stick better, such as Freeside, Westside, the Great Khans, and Primm. But these seem more to only reinforce the idea of their own independence.Some of your friends like Rose of Charon and Doc Delilah who you feel more comfortable with admitting you are behind the program say that in as much as the NCR has its faults, there isn't yet this so called "Third Option" for people to pick and the only alternative is the Legion. America is gone.You realize that although you can chip away at NCR support, making people believe in America is going to take more than words. You're gong to need action, and show people that a new American power does exist, something they can support and be supported by. Settlements need to have the "Third Way" available to them other than the NCR for protection against the Legion and the wasteland.>con't
