The Legion, once a force that shook the wasteland, has fallen. After the defeat at Hoover Dam and the death of Caesar the united tribes quickly fell into chaos, quickly becoming little more than slavers and warbands with no unity or code. The NCR already spread too thin in the Mojave, did its best to secure its borders and quickly reinforced the dam, now able to defend against any would-be invaders. The NCR turns its attention to New Vegas, where a mysterious courier going by the name of "Six" has declared New Vegas a independent state.But that is none of your concern... at least for now.You are a survivor, one that sees the fall of the old Legion as an opportunity to begin anew and to forge your own path using the skills the Legion has given you, because if there is one thing you know for certain. It's that war... War never changes.>please choose a name for our Legionnaire.

>>476159"That's mine recruit. Captain takes first pick."
Tell the recruit that the revolver and any ammo it uses is yours, the rest tehy can divide amongst themselves.
>>476159Let the recruit keep the revolver, it'd make him feel special, and we could use a second in command. If we take it for ourselves, he could get funny ideas.

Bring the others inside and we can get some rest.">Incontinentius nods and makes his way out of the cave soon to return with the rest of your group with the Brahmin trying to follow.>there is enough room in here for each of you to sleep in relative seclusion if so desired, but the Brahmin can only enter part way due to the cave thinning out near the entrance with a space just larger than a man.>Aetius pushes the slaves to the furthest corner of the cave right next to a glowing pile of fungus.>"so this is how far the Legion has fallen? resorting to hiding in caves rather than enduring the night outdoors?">that slave is really getting on your nerves.>before you can say anything to silence him, Aetius strikes him with the blunt side of his blade leaving a large red mark across him>"You still insult the Legion in our presence?! speak of it in such a way again slave and I shall cut out your tongue and feed it to the woman!"

>>479034Incontinentius is still waiting for a punishment?Cut off his pinky from the hand that shot Thaddeus and only 1 meal for a week.
>>479034Well, could've gone worse, right? Plan to head for the tradepost come morning, have Incontinentius get 1 meal every three days OR have him lose the pinky. We're Legion, but we're not exactly legion in terms of numbers right now. Can't afford to have our troops unnecessarily weak or injured until we get some more more together.

>>479034(New to quests, this is awesome OP)We need to break the slaves before we can sell them and the recruits need to learn this skill eventually. Have incontinentius cook the food as punishment while the others learn. Give the captives slave names. The man can become fatue (fool) for thinking it was smart to insult the Legion. The woman can become vappa (scum) for shooting a ally in the back. Torture the man until he hurts the woman (nothing permanent) to make him used to following orders.

>>479976>as far as you can tell he could have died of an overdose, and besides his face nothing else seems to be wrong with the body from what you can see.>the first thing you grab is the service rifle, which has a full magazine of 20 rounds but no spares to be found.>after that you search each of his pockets and come up with only 20 caps and some personal letters.>the bag however is what catches your eye to most.>you lift the strap off the body and place it on the ground for you to open."I wouldn't worry too much Incontinentius, looks like he overdosed before some wasteland pests got to him.">Incontinentius relaxes a bit and lowers his weapon.>"maybe... but, why the blanket then?">he steps over and takes the blanket for himself, tying it around his waist and around his belt.>that is a good point, but not a real concern for now.>with a bit of effort you untie the rope and open the bag.>inside is a map of the surrounding area, though it seems to have been in the process of being filled out.>along with it are a more letters each of them neatly tied with string.>and just below that is a small package with a name scratched off.>as you search the bag you shout to the others"bring the slaves over here, and let them see what their profligate lifestyle causes..">the shuffling of feet is heard from behind you and the slaves are shoved close to the body

Biopolymers of sugars are common in nature. Through photosynthesis, plants produce glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (G3P), a phosphated 3-carbon sugar that is used by the cell to make monosaccharides such as glucose (C6H12O6) or (as in cane and beet) sucrose (C12H22O11). Monosaccharides may be further converted into structural polysaccharides such as cellulose and pectin for cell wall construction or into energy reserves in the form of storage polysaccharides such as starch or inulin. Starch, consisting of two different polymers of glucose, is a readily degradable form of chemical energy stored by cells, and can be converted to other types of energy. Another polymer of glucose is cellulose, which is a linear chain composed of several hundred or thousand glucose units. It is used by plants as a structural component in their cell walls. Humans can digest cellulose only to a very limited extent, though ruminants can do so with the help of symbiotic bacteria in their gut. DNA and RNA are built up of the monosaccharides deoxyribose and ribose, respectively. Deoxyribose has the formula C5H10O4 and ribose the formula C5H10O5

>>486381>>486390thanks anons.>>486393>>486381>you agree to his deal and leave the store with your newly acquired feast of 4 Brahmin steaks and an extra days worth of clean water>the streets are still filled with residents of all kinds, some of which you see are guards.>it seems lightly defended counting the men at the Brahmin pen and the man on the building it having maybe six or seven guards that you can see.>but with all the caravans moving around its a little difficult to tell if it will stay that way or not.>some of the guards might even be hired by the traders themselves and not the town.>you continue to survey the area when one of the men who were eyeing you before taps you on the shoulder.>as your turn you can see he has a rather bad scar across the left side of his jaw clearly left by a jagged blade>despite his appearance his voice is rather soft>"are you NCR?"
>>486446depends. but dose it really matter? im a man with a gun.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>486446Depends, You friend or foe?on an unrelated note, my first ever roll! Hope I did it right
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>486468Supporting, though I doubt I'll beat that 90
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>486468
>>486468>pic related >>486470>>486480"that depends on if you are going to shoot me or not.">he smirks at your response. >"listen, why don't you join me for a drink at the bar? I have some friends who would like to talk with you.">he pats you on the shoulder and walks into the bar across the street without waiting for you.>the door is left open and you can see inside>its a little crowded but there is still plenty of room to get away if you needed to.>you see a man walk out and stand by the door clearly waiting for someone, possibly you, to enter.
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>486528Follow after, keep up the masquerade as long as possible
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>486538This, but once inside try to find a corner seat, with a line of sight towards the entrance. We don't need to get shot in the back or ambushed.
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>486553my legion sense is tingling
>>486560Praise the legion senses!
>>486538>>486553>>486560>you step towards the bar and when you get close the man standing there looks you over.>he doesn't say anything, and he doesn't stop you, he just looks as you walk inside.>once inside you look for a corner seat facing the entrance, unfortunately they are all taken by men who had the same idea as you. >the bartender calls you over>"what can I get you... Ranger?">at the sound of 'Ranger' a few of the patrons glance over to get a look at you and move away from the bar as you approach, one of them spitting in your direction.
>>486582Your best, cheapest whisky my good man.(How many caps do we have left... I'd rather not order a drink if we're broke)
>>486582nuthin, just eyeballin the establishment. As you were gentlemen.Turn on the spot and GTFO. its a tarp as sure as hell. Legion sense is never wrong. its obvious as hell that folks arnt comfortable around rangers around her, and im dressed as one.
Rolled 65 (1d100)>>486582>>486606I think it's best to not drink anything in here, we have no backup if we get drugged. Let's just go talk to the stranger.
>>486619Fair enough, I'll change my vote to this.Maybe we should say that we're not a Ranger to the barman though, to help defuse the tension.
>>486630Agreed. Say it loud enough for everyone to hear. "I'm no ranger, just a traveler in a dead man's coat."The stranger definitely is not ncr friendly if he drinks in this bar.
>>486639>>486630no, because then there gonna want to know who you REALLY are and whered you get a dead rangers coat....and we still have our legion armor on underneath....NONE of these are good things. gtfo.
>>486630>>486639>>486643you can roll on what we do, or decide together. so far >>486619 is the only roll
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>486582>>486617Get the hell outta dodge
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>486648sorry guys, but i just dont care what some two bit profligate has to say to a fake ranger.
>>486656What? Just turn straight around and walk out after walking in...that would look mighty suspicious and odd. Middle ground would be to say no to the barman, ignore the comments about our attire and just hear what the stranger has to say - while keeping our hand near our firearm.
>>486663We're in a damned if you do and damned if you don't situation, choosing the one that has less risks
>>486660The dice have spoken.
>>486663 (it goes in the options tab)>>486660>after a look around you decide its probably not safe to be here."nothing, I was just leaving...">he gives you a strange look but doesn't stop you.>"alright then... see you 'round Ranger.">you place your hand on your Sequoia and walk to the bars exit>now the man waiting there steps in front of you>"something wrong Ranger?">you brush past him and walk out into the street>no one follows you out and the people outside seem to have no problem with you>perhaps this place doesn't have many NCR troopers here for a reason.
>>486728besides if it was important he woulda just talked to us when we met outside.
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>486728Make our way back to the others. Stay extra vigilant and avoid open spaces. Who knows what those guys are up too.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>486728Let's pick up some regular clothes for us and the recruits. We can't keep traveling around and not being able to bring everyone into town because of the Legion armor. Will probably have to sell off the junk we've got collected for caps. Also, we need to get some feed for the brahmin or possibly sell them here. We could get quite a few caps for 2 brahmin, and they will slow us down when we start going of the roads. Let's go talk to the brahmin guards and see if their employers well talk to us about a deal.
>>486756>perhaps you have seen enough of the village for now.>at least dressed the way you are.>you make sure to stay near buildings and take the road less traveled while at the same time watching your back.>whoever called you into that bar clearly knew that Rangers were not welcome there, so there is no telling if they might be gunning for you.>eventually however your path takes you right past the older guard on top of the roof.>you do your best to keep out of his view as you try and return to the highway but he spots you>"wa- hold on there traveler! Vegas is the other way. You didn't get turned around did-ja?">you keep you hand on your Sequoia as you look up to him casually holding his rifle and leaning over the building.>"yeah, its the other way. right through town, at least that's the fastest and safest route."
>>487423>Rumour is that the NCR are planning a big show near the strip, and I'd rather not be there when it happens.>I'll head into Vegas in a couple weeks and see if things have cooled off.Then walk off and rejoin our men.
>>487491>perhaps you can talk your way out of this."There is a Rumor that the NCR is planning a big show near the strip, I'd rather not be there when it happens.">the man scratches his chin>"oh really? I ain't heard nothing about it. Well, guess I did now. I'll be sure to pass the message along so no one else gets caught up in this.">you turn around and start to continue walking away"I'll head to Vegas in a couple of weeks maybe, once things have cooled off a bit.">"alright, see you around stranger, remember to keep an eye out for Deathclaws. Their mating season starts in a week or two. and few of the younger ones have already been searchin for mates">well, that's good to know. >after a few minutes of walking you find where the caravan was told to wait.>your Legionnaires slowly come out of hiding with weapons drawn >it doesnt take them long to recognize you, lowering their weapons and giving you a salute>Aetius being the first to do so.>"Ave Decanus. what have you learned about the village?"
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>487581They are not the biggest fans of the NCR, and there are few guards... I am partail to sending Aetius in dressed in Faute's old cloths to get info though i wonder what my fellow anons think
>>487714Supporting except not Aetius, the Legion zealot. One small comment about the Legion and he will flip his shit. I think thaddeus has shown the most restraint and temper of the three so far. Let's send him in for info instead. Also grab some more clothes for disguises too.
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>487718Forgot roll.
>>487714>>487720"They appear to hate NCR. So we should consider this place safer than most.">'safe' being a rather loose term in the wasteland>"is there anything else you learned Decanus?">besides that bit about the Deathclaws there really wasn't much more."No. But I did get us some supplies thanks to one odd shop owner.">you take out the steaks and fresh water being sure that your Legionnaires see that at least something of value was gained from your visit, and store them on the pack Brahmin."Thaddeus, I'll need you to change out of your armor.">before he can respond you have already pulled out a wasteland outfit and tossed it at his feet.>"For what purpose Decanus?""I was unable to determine much information about the local area, or about NCR locations.">"then why not go back?">you glare at Incontinentius from the corner of your eye "they think I am a Ranger, they likely wont tell me much of anything under that identity.">you remove the ring of NCR tags from your neck and toss them to Thaddeus"take these, they might give you some sway with the people there. Find out as much as you can and report back.">"Ave Decanus.""Ave.">Thaddeus begins to change out of his legion armor and dons the garb of a wastelander>and after a short adjustment of his clothing he sets off in the direction of the town. >it will be at least an hour or two before you can expect his return
>>487771Take cover with the men while we're waiting.If a random patrol or group discovered us, it would not bone well for Thaddeus.
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>487777This, clean the guns aswell while we wait
>>487777>>487784This. Also maybe some philosophical pondering as we clean? See you there is dead and the legion fights each other. Would it be wrong by the laws of ceaser to build a cohort here in Nevada and give ourself the rank of Legate?
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>487795Ceaser* (damn autocorrect) is dead and the legion fights each other. Supporting roll.
>>487795While not inherently wrong, I do not believe that we deserve such an honour yet.Our Legion must expand in numbers before we can claim the title of Centurion, and then Legate.
>>487806Yeah, we need a couple hundred people under our command to become a centurion. I don't remember how legates were chosen other than promotion by ceaser.Obviously we are not going to go back east and join up with one of the surviving legates fighting. Wondering if dickus feels like starting his own version of the Legion in Nevada is a possibility.
>>487795>>487806>>487822If you do, he does.
>>487822>>487795Supporting both courses of action.... I am highly in favour of legion building
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>487771>>487827>>488005Lets wait until Thaddeus returns with information. Maybe we can get new recruits from town, then maybe even take over the town. In the mean time we can see if there is anything worth scavenging nearby.
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>488005Same here! Hopefully we can ransack the town and gain recruits.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>488095>>489291Supporting for taking over town. I don't like the idea of heading to Vegas so soon with no good weaponry, nearly capless, and not even a full squad (we need another four troops and vappa can't fight by legion law. The anti-ncr villagers might even be tempted to join us. They don't appear to be able to turn away ncr travelers. We have the dog tags showing we can kill NCR and the coat of a Ranger. We could try selling them on protection, and just brute force them if they try the whole "we are neutral" crap.
>>488095 (lowest roll) supported by>>489923 (highest roll)>>487784>as you wait for Thaddeus the weight of leadership begins to weigh on your mind>you lead a band, nay, a scouting party, throughout the Mojave wasteland.>and while your loyalty to the Legion and Caesar is strong, the idea of raising a new banner in your own name continues to force itself into your mind.>you take a scrap cloth and start to wipe down your carbine, being sure to have unloaded the weapon beforehand.>The old Legion is no more and Caesar is dead...>its needs to be rebuilt. It needs a banner to unite under once more.>this is not treachery, this is simply a fact. If Caesar is watching he would want to see his legions fight on and grow, not crumble under their own weight >one thing Caesat taught all his warriors was to adapt to conflict, strike where the enemy is weak, and encircle where they are strong slowly starving them out.>these tactics were turned on the Legion and now it is what starves while the enemy sits back and watches.>you toss the rag to the ground your weapon now as clean as you can make it>you load the seven rounds for your carbine one more and lean against a rusted car>then its settled.>a new legion needs to be born, and new recruits need to be enlisted.>somehow.>your wait for Thaddeus comes to an end when you see him on the horizon unharmed and unafraid >Aetius comes to your side as the two of you come out of your hiding spots, the slaves and Incontinentius still remaining out of sight for the time being.>"Thaddeus, what new information do you have about the profligate town?">he holds up the NCR tags once he gets close enough to have a normal conversation>"the town seems to have a secondary barter system, like caps or our denari though its kept quiet. though we are apparently well off...">he jingles the tags with a smile.
forgive my tardiness today, I had a rather busy day of work. I hope you are not too upset about the wait
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>490510(I too wish we could not work and just run the campaign for hours, but we understand you are human and need food QM.)>>490506Looks like the town is much more anti-ncr than I expected. Anyone feel like walking into town with legion armor to see what reaction we get? If they don't try to kill us on approach we should be able to try some diplomacy. Either we can cement this town as friendly or push to conquer it (with assassination if needed).
>>490506>>490510Not at all! I am having a great time here and I understand rl happens lol. That being said I won't be able to participate tues thru mid fri as I will be out camping. I hope to find this quest still going when I get back, but I have a few days yet.Action: It seems to me that this is as good as an opportunity as any for us to move into town and stake a claim. Let us move in, weapons in sight yet not drawn. We should display the tags as a show that we mean business and see if we can sway them to our cause. Thoughts anons? I'll wait to roll...
>>490586>>490595I'll back walking into town with our Legion armour on display. We should also have our guns drawn, it is a sign of strength!I'm not sure if we should bring the slaves though...they would probably react negatively to that.Thaddeus, Aetius and ourselves should proceed into the town. Incontinentius will stay behind and guard the slaves.
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>490657Well we have to remember that they do have guards, at least one on a roof, and we will be out numbered. I'll back leaving Incontinentius with the slaves so long as they are properly tied up and separated to prevent them from trying to free on another. I still think we should go in without weapons drawn...
>>490682I'll be willing to forfeit my roll for a majority vote if other anons come in.
>>490682Agreed. Weapons drawn is a sign of strength while also being a threat. Let's try taking the town through diplomacy before we have to shoot a dozen armed guards and possibly die.
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>490682Supporting this Action
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>490510i just read it from top to niw and good job m8 you got me in>>490586ill second this and roll for it too
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>490586Im in, supporting
Rolled 86 (1d100)Had to keep reading. This quest is the best startup I have seen in a while.>>490586I support this. Bring the slaves maybe we can sell them and not have to feed so many mouths.
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>491337We don't know if they support slavery here, but incase they do then i am all for it
>>490586>>490595>>490657>>490682 (highest roll)(added action)>>491337>>491436"well, perhaps these profligates aren't as useless as most.">Thaddeus tosses you the tags before changing back into his armor.>while he gets changed you move the tags around in your hand, thinking of what action to take next.>they are very much Anti NCR if they have a black market barter system around tags of dead NCR troopers.>perhaps other NCR items are worth more.>your hand grips the tags and you place them back around your neck allowing them to jingle as you move"Incontinentius, tie the slaves up to the Brahmin. you will be in charge of watching them while we remain in the village.">"yes Decanus. As you say.""when we enter the sight of the lookout be sure we do not have any weapons drawn. If we appear to be raiders they will likely overwhelm us.">"so are we to appear weak to the profligates Decanus?! Are we to let them think the Legion has fallen?!""the Legion already has fallen Aetius! But it will rise again, don't mistake my orders for thoughts of treachery Legionnaire. I AM your Decanus." >you glare at Aetius sharply causing him to take a step back in shame at his outburst.>a rare thing, to say the least, from any legion zealot.>what more he takes a knee to display his shame and speaks with a low tone>"forgive me Decanus, I simply wished to keep the Legions honor intact.">Aetius is easily the youngest of your party, a fledgling warrior who never truly got to prove himself while the Legion was whole.>but you didn't become a Veteran, (or a Decanus) by letting your actions be without thought."Rise Aetius, your intention is understood. But this will be the only warning you get for them.">Aetius nods before rising to his feet>"Understood Decanus.""Lets get moving, the sooner we get into the village, the sooner we can make our next move."
>>492412>after a short travel that both Thaddeus and yourself have already taken once before the sight of the village comes quickly.>in the distance you can see the older lookout walking to the edge of his building peering in your direction>a few seconds later you see him wave someone up to join him, and together they stand there looking at you and your group approach>the old man holds his rifle casually while the new figure seems to just look on.>you are still a distance from the town and likely too far for the old man to hit you if he tried>he has made to attempt to do so, but the option to turn back is still there.
>>492488Continue, announce yourself as a Decanus in the Legion with tags to trade

>>492544>>492874>>493043>well, time to find out just how willing they are to accept members of the Legion into their village.>you continue to lead your men towards the village raising one arm to show that you don't mean harm>your men follow suit in the gesture each raising one hand>once you are close enough to the the lookouts clearly they shout to you.>more specifically the old man does. >"Who are you?""I am Decanus Dickus of Caesars Legion.">you take the tags of your neck slowly and raise them high"And I'm here to trade.">for a moment there is silence as the two lookouts talk to each other >the one who joined the old man wears matching leather armor and carries a 10mm at his side>he is the one who speaks first.>"This is a peaceful community Legionnaires...">the man looks over each of your men and your two slaves>"I hope you keep it that way.">he jabs a thumb behind him and the old man walks off disappearing into the building from a trapdoor >"Anyone who is willing to kill NCR is welcome here. I can assure you that."
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>493266Awesome. Alright, let's try to get some information from the guard. Who was the guy who just left? Who commands the town? What kind of people travel through town, factions, etc. Are there any raider/wildlife threatening the town?
>>493312No other rolls necessary. Hold to our 99 info gather.
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>493312I'm going to agree with this (nice roll)Given that these guys didn't really bat an eye at our slaves it must be accepted (or at least tolerated). See if we can sell them.Also, once we walk into town, inquire if any young men want to join the Legion, with the main selling point being that you get to kill those NCR dogs.
>>493312 (nice roll)>from the grin on the mans face you can see he values the company of NCR hunters>it also confirms your previous thoughts that the town has a taste for dead Rangers.>its a pretty good thing you got out when you did.>you lower your arm and begin to converse with the man as you approach his perch atop the building "Who was that you sent away just now?">the man chuckles.>"who? Tacker? He's an old man with a deadeye aim, I've never seen him miss a shot. It only makes sense to keep him around.">if thats the case, perhaps you weren't as safe as you once thought when you were approaching. "do YOU keep him around then?">the man takes a seat hanging his legs off the side of the building and taking one of the bottles of scotch and taking a swig>he takes his time drinking the liquid before responding>"yup. The name is Scotch, this is my little slice of the wasteland Scotchville.""subtle name.">"better than anything the Legion or NCR ever came up with. Besides it isn't named after me, its named after our most valued export.">he lifts the bottle and shakes it slightly.>"you wouldn't believe how great pre-war scotch tastes when altered a little and a few ingredients substituted.">you happen to glance back at your slaves>they are perfectly in view of the man, and he seems to not care at all about their situation.>you also notice that Fatue's eyes are fixed on the bottle, his mouth watering slightly.>"you know, its been a while since we have had anyone claiming to be with the Legion come through here, and even fewer who still wear the uniforms.">so there are still some members around here. >but from his choice of words, its likely not been for some time."then who does come here?">"Ha!">Scotch tosses the now empty bottle behind him>"anyone and everyone, we have traders, slavers, bounty and regular hunters, con-men, murderers, and even a few ghouls, but they all have one thing in common-">he doesn't finish the sentence, though you are pretty sure you have a good idea of what."you all hate the bear.">"damn. fuckin. straight."
>>493395I'm all for selling fatue, he's never going to rise to a recruit without a ton of work that he will fight the whole way. Let's keep vappa though. Not much point in picking slave training as a perk if we sell off every slave we make before we even break them fully. Let's send thaddeus and aetius into town to find a place to stay while we continue talking. Ask Scotch how many people live in town, and if the ncr has any presence nearby. Ask about tackers past, he might make a good recruit. Mention wanting revenge against the bear for ceaser.

Rolled 8 (1d100)>>493449Yup, I agree.

We have a bit of history with those who keep too many records on information they have no business looking into""what about Tacker. How did an old man become a lookout for your town?">Scotch stands up and casually walks around the side of the building kicking over bottles as he goes.>"he's just an old man who's a good shot. Thats all I know, its all you need to know.">Scotch draws his 10mm and fires at a bottle in his path, shattering it.>"bam... just like the raiders that tried to come at this town under his watch.">he holsters the weapon and begins to walk away>"now go on in, I have a game of Caravan to lose inside."
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>493682Proceed into the town and look for someone who we can sell fatue to.
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>493806Supporting roll but doubt anyone topping such a good one. If others want to, maybe also confront him about his obvious addictions being honor less and against the Leon. Perhaps involve vappa in the conversation and ask her what she thinks should be done with him to test her training. See if she defers to our authority or tries to plead mercy for him. Sell him either way.
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>493806Same, ONLY Fatue. He is just useless piece of sheeet
>>493806>>493957Oh, DOUBLE 96Looks like we will party for all that earned fat dosh just like before 23rd of October 2077

>>496727nope, just been busy
Rolled 28 (1d100)Alright so we know who the primary protector and leader of the town are. My first impression is Scotch has to go when we take over. He is a drunkard and probably not interested in releasing control to see us break down the alcohol business. We should meet with tacker to get a feel for him. >>496729Let's head into the bar and see what the crowds reaction is compared to our first visit.
>>496892Seconding.This town is full of profligates, but we will have to wait a while to cleanse this filth.
>>496892>your curiosity gets the better of you and you walk into the bar>now in your Legion armor the air feels different.>at the very least. you aren't getting spit at anymore.>the few men that still give you glares likely know of the Legion and its brand of law and order but they know to keep their distance for now>before you even make it up to the bar a young man approaches you eyeing the tags on your neck>a big grin comes over his face and he lights up a smoke being sure not to blow it in your direction >"where'd you get those tags man?">he voice is calm and cocksure like a young recruit who has never been in a real fight>he reaches out calmly and places his hand on one before letting it go>"they look good on you.">it isn't until now that you see two more equally young men come up behind him>from their matching clothes you can assume they are part of the same group.>one of the new arrivals pulls him back slightly.>"h-hey, careful man... He's Legion. You know, those guys who torched Nipton not too long ago?">he looks back and laughs to himself>"Where? whatever. He doesn't mind me looking"
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>496983Ugh, filthy profligates touching us. He is dumb though, maybe we can use him. Suggested dialogue:"From the necks of dead ncr, stranger."Rest our hand on the Ranger sequioa in its holster to draw their eyes to it, assuming we are wearing it on our hip. "Is killing ncr something that interest you, boy?"
>>496995>you stare at the man as his buddies for a second or two before you interrupt their chat about the Legion and yourself."these tags are from the necks of dead NCR. Mostly Rangers.">well, technically all of them are.>your hand reaches down to your belt and your grip the Sequoia>he doesn't notice, instead taking a drag from his smoke.>"Rangers huh? Pretty cool. But that just sounds like a story to me.">he turns and points to his gang of two>"my buddies here say you are Legion, and that Nipton was their work. Torching a whole town? They must have really pissed your friends off."
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>497100"Nipton was a town of thieves and whores. They offered to sell the lives of their guest to the legion, but failed to realize we do not make deals with those lacking honor. Near the end father's thanked us when their sons were killed instead of them. All were found wanting. "

>>497114>>497127"Ah Nipton... Nipton was a town of thieves and whores selling themsevles to anyone who came by.">you take a step towards the man, or to be more accurate... the boy>he notices and takes a step back, as do his buddies all of them watching you."They offered to sell the lives of their guests to the Legion, so we could bring justice to them.">the tags around your neck jingle as you step forward again"But they failed to realize we don't make deals with those who lack honor.">you eye the cigarette in his mouth, loosely sitting on his lip about to fall>you reach forward and take the cigarette and hold it up, the small thing burning slowly with a bit of smoke rising like the way Nipton itself did."Near the end, after justice was delivered, those who were once fathered thanked us for sparing them, and instead killing their sons.">you drop the little paper roll of tobacco to the floor and step on it ending its slow burn."In the end, all were found wanting.">the three boys stare at you in silence before the one who approached you before raises his hands and chuckles>"woah h-ho. That's some pretty intense stuff man.">the one behind him again speaks up.>"see dude, I told you. The Legion were hardcore bastards before that Caesar dude got off-- killed. Got killed"
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>497127Woo, nice rolls. >>497143(Guess I'll keep going)"Ave, true to caeser."You thought them without wits, but they are smart enough to realise danger when led by the hand. Possibly useful indeed. Motion to an empty table."Join me if you like. I would be interested in knowing of you three, and what I can offer you other than old stories."
>>497143 (33? well that's exactly 1/3)"Ave">you turn away from the boys and start to walk to a empty table."True to Caesar.">as you reach the table and take a seat you see that they continue to look at you.>motioning to the table you offer them a chance to sit with you."Join me if you like, I'd like to know more about you three, and what I could offer you, besides old stories...">the boys look at one another and mumble between themselves before two walk away and leave the bar.>but the one who first confronted you still stays behind watching his friends leave.>he stands there for a second before joining you at the table."what loyal companions you have.">he laughs taking out another cigarette and lighting it up again.>"don't worry about them, they can be squares from time to time, but they listen to me in the end.">he takes his lighter and stuffs it into his jacket pocket revealing a few sticks of dynamite and a few small improvised bombs before he closes his jacket.>"you said you were interested in me? Well my name is Rail. Like Railroad.">Rail extends his hand out to you in an offer to shake
>>497157>>497188if only I linked those properly.
Rolled 18 (1d100)(1/3. praises to ye oh merciful QM.)>>497188Suggested lines:"The meak have a habit of following the bold, and bold you are. I am Decanus bigus dickus, how should I call you? You crave excitement from what I can see. I doubt this town offers you much entertainment. Tell me, what do you want in life?"Wave at the bartender for a drink for our guest. We do not drink, but some compromises need to be made until we have the strength to force our will.
>>497199(Desperately wishing for other players with non-cursed dice)
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>497199Again, seconding and adding the might of my dice. Mars guide my hand!
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>497199Juno guide us!
>>497217>>497331The gods are with you, brothers!
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>497199so we should roll high, just like Ceaser.Then we should make BIZANTIUM! Lots of Bismuth will be needed
>>497547That is not a bad idea, if only our Decanus was familiar with classical history, then he could be a new Emperor Constentine
>>497199>>497217"I am Decanus Dickus." >you smile and wave over the bartender as Rail slowly lowers his hand slightly embarrassed."im sure you know that the meak have a habit of following the bold. Your companions are a prime example of those who follow those bolder then themselves.">the bartender eventually walks over, somewhat begrudgingly, wiping his hands with a rag>"What do you need?""a drink. Whatever you provide will do fine.">he nods and begins to walk away when Rail stops him>"Oh, can I get \one of your famous Scotchs?">"sure thing kid, two Scotchs.">you take a tag off of your neck and slide it across the table to the bartender"Just one. Legionnaires don't Drink.">he quickly snatches it up and pockets the tag with a grin.>"then this probably isn't your town, even if you are welcome to spend your...">he raises the tag for a second>"Caps.">the Bartender walks away leaving you and Rail at the table"Staying in this town likely offers little entertainment.">"eh its not so bad.. It can get exciting whenever a NCR or raider party show up.">he reaches into his jacket and pulls out one of his improvised bombs made out of a tin can>"that's when the real shit kicks off.">he holds it out for you to inspect and you do so, gently taking it from his hand>its primitive, from the looks of it, though a harsh enough impact might set it off if thrown>its still far better than anything you can make though."Tell me, Rail. What do you want in life?">the Bartender returns placing the drink on the table and walking off as Rail lifts the glass bottle>"what do I want?">he looks at the drink and takes a cork from his jacket plugging the top of the bottle and saving it for later>"I want to see NCR soldiers turn into little bits."
Rolled 60 (1d100)(My bed... it calls to me. But I must quest.)>>500172"A noble goal that all could aspire to. It is my desire as well. I've spent my whole life hunting down the fools and finding those with the strength and character to fight them. You are one such man. You do not cower behind others, you do not blindly accept the lies of ncr charlatans. I ask of you to join me. Sacrifices must be made to become a legionaire, to become your strongest self. I assure you however, that once you wear the armor there will be no sight in this world that the ncr will fear more. What say you? "(Come on dice, I need you now more than ever)
Rolled 42 (1d100)>>500194Supporting >>500172Yo OP, you gonna make a new thread soon? Its on page 8 now.
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>500194Sounds inspiring! Supporting
>>500225with how slow threads die on /Qst/ there is still probably a day or two left in the thread.
>>500194>you place the makeshift bomb on the table"A noble goal that all here aspire to. I share that desire, as does the Legion.">"with the amount of tags on your neck, I'd be an idiot not to believe you, and Rail is no fool.">Rail takes the charge and places it in his jacket once more and looks over to the door just as his friends leave the bar"I've spent my whole life hunting down those fools and finding men with the strength and character to fight them. I believe you are one such man.">his eyes widen and he turns back to you.>"You want me to join the Legion then? Joining the big boys, huh?""Rail, you dont cower behind others, you dont blindly accept the lies of NCR charlatans.">you lean in and tap the table "I am asking you to join us, though I must warn you. Sacrifices must be made to become a Legionnaire, but you will become your strongest self. You will become one of the greatest threats the NCR has ever faced and when you wear the armor, there will be nothing in the wasteland that the citizens and soldiers of the NCR will fear more.">you watch Rail as he leans back in his chair thinking hard about what you have said.>seconds pass in silence between you two when you find Thaddeus walking in and starting over towards your table.>before he can speak you raise your hand to keep him silent "So, Rail. What say you?">he slowly reaches up and scratches his head before taking a breath and looking at Thaddeus then to you>"I think the Legion could use my skills."
>>500642Then, you are welcome, the training will be harsh and merciless, but when you have become a true legionaire, there's nothing in this world you will fear. Talk to Thaddeus then
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>501033
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>501033Also, ask him to convince his compatriots to join. The coming war will require many soldiers.
>>501530>>501033"Then it welcomes you. Thaddeus will start your training. It will be harsh and merciless, but once its over, and you are a true Legionnaire, there is nothing you will fear besides failing your superiors.">Thaddeus motions for you to speak with him a few steps away>you stand up and join him while Rail smiles and looks around the bar"yes Thaddeus?">"We found a place to stay. Not many here will spare room for Legion, even IF we are well known for our hate of the NCR.""So where is it?">"that inn we saw? its open for us, cleared out actually. The owner was very interested in what we were doing here."
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>501864I suppose I should go and discuss our terms of stay with him then.Where are your fellow brothers?
Rolled 82 (1d100)Just read and caught up. My favorite quest fo far. I'm keeping my name because my id changes all the time.I think we should find out more about this black market and slavers and the how much we can exchange for these dirty tags. I think we were cheated out of a meal with that tag we gave up for a mere drink. Afterwards, we could discuss vacancy with the inn keeper.
>>502343Oh, and I'm never busy and do not sleep, so I can participate at all times. Thank you again for creating this wonderful thread. You made me find a legion mod for new vegas and I might play today.
Rolled 22 (1d100)>>501864"I will handle him myself. You and aetius get us a single room, I don't want us sleeping seperated in this town." Hand him some of the tags and bring him over to the table. "Rail, this is thaddeus. Thaddeus, rail has agreed to join us in our war against the ncr. While most aspirants must be broken in body and spirit to prove themselves, you have already met the ncr in battle and won. Thaddeus, you will be in charge of rails early training. Do not break him like a slave-recruit, but do not coddle him.Teach him our laws and structure. Think on this tonight and prepare yourself."Dismiss thaddeus and turn to rail. "We are staying at the inn tonight, enjoy your night and think on your new life. You can meet us there in the morning to begin your training."Head to the market to find incontinetus and see if he managed to sell fatue.
Hell yeah guys, we have our first recruit. And he can make bombs.>>502343Welcome mate. Yes, this is definitely one of the good ones.

>>502343"Interesting. Perhaps this town is as full of profligates as we first believed.">you wave over Rail to join the two of you."Thaddeus, this is Rail. He is new blood for the Legion. Its going to be your responsibility to train him into a proper Legion Recruit.">"Ave, new blood. Gather what trifle and petty things you own and meet me at the Inn with the others.">"sure thing. I'll be there in a flash man.""Perhaps you might convince your followers to join us, however if they don't say yes the first time don't bother. The Legion accepts only those worthy of its time.">Rail leaves the bar eager to get his worthless possessions and friends."what do you plan on doing with his things Thaddeus?">"the same thing we did with a small tribe from the edge of Zion. gather there wealth then make them burn it in the name of the Legion.""if they have nothing to go back to they have more motivation to stay.">"indeed.">the two of you exit the bar exposing your sets of armor to the towns people in full view>some stare in awe or fear while others continue to go about their business"Im going to find out about how much these trophies are worth. Then I'll meet you at the Inn. Have Aetius assist you in the new bloods training. Im sure he will be most helpful.">"As you say Decanus.">Thaddeus leaves you in front of the bar to carry out his orders.>you take the tags in your hand and look them over again thinking of where you might go to get the most accurate information on their worth.
