The Legion, once a great force that shook the wasteland, has fallen. After the defeat at Hoover Dam and the death of Caesar, the 87 united tribes fell into chaos, quickly becoming little more than groups of slavers and warbands with no unity or code of honor. The NCR already spread too thin in the Mojave, did its best to secure its borders by quickly reinforcing the dam. Now able to defend against any would-be invaders that try to cross the Colorado River, 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.Previous thread: >>503318Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/503318/Every action/support requires a 1d100 >(type "dice+1d100" in the Options bar without quotes)New players and Newfags are welcome, don't let Namefags scare you.

Legion code is clear on what should happen to unruly recruits"
>>533455Lightly chastise Viscera by telling him that sarcasm is no suitable substitute for a proper and respectful answer, unless there was no respect in the first place.Remind Aetius that you can hear the tone and timbre of your brothers and do not need him to lead, but to be led by YOUR example. Which means you speak for yourself, not him for you.Piety is a virtue.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>533511(Hurray, op lives)Supporting.A walked settlement, hmm. Should we start ambushing patrols to cut down their numbers, possibly recruit more followers? Legion tactics say attacking a defensive site requires outnumbering the enemy.
>>533511This is Viscera's second outburst. One more instance of insubordination and he'll face the whip.

Rolled 83 (1d100)>>533811Wait a while for them to grow lax... Ask vicera how long the shifts are and attack half way through
>>533827Seconding this.Tell the men to use melee weapons at first, so we can keep the element of surprise.
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>533827I second this with melee. Guns should be cleaned and all bladed weapons covered in dirt, grime, mud or muck as well as ourselves. Anything glinting in the light will give us away. Make sure the guns are loaded and somewhat clean.
>>533954Cleaned on the inside
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>533954Good plan guys, i agree
>>533827Supporting. Focus on killing that radscorpion first.
>>534051No, we should focus on the men. Radscorps can't raise an alarm.
>>533827>you change the subject back to the main focus"About how long are the normal shifts?">"well that depends on how many are here. IF they have more men then the shifts should be shorter... and from the looks of it, they have been recruiting from the locals.">Viscera directs your attention to a small group of young men in brahmin hide clothing with leather like material over it approaching >everyone ducks behind cover as the group is heard coming closer to your position.>those who have silenced or melee weapons draw them in case they are needed>everyone is still as the footsteps finally stop>"see what did I tell you? These guys are the only ones worth joining.">his compatriots response cant be heard but from the speakers change of tone something has him worried>"So uh, Why did you guys take me out here again?">finally another voice is heard>"Our last trial before officially becoming members came.">"Really? Then what are we waiting for? lets get it done.">there is a single gunshot followed by the sound of a body collapsing to the ground>then the sound of footsteps is heard again, along with the sound of dragging heading closer>"one. two. three!">a body is flung over your heads and hits the earth just behind you as the footsteps are heard heading in the direction that they came
>>536192Are they heading back towards the camp? Are any of the new guards leaving to go patrol the area away from the camp?
>>536234without looking you can tell that they are heading in the direction of the camp.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>536192Let's watch the camp until we spot a patrol leaving. Follow it and ambush it once out of sight of the camp.
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>536251Please dice...Supporting.This may take a while but let's wait it out.Loot the body and have a leigionarre wear the hide over his armour in case we are spotted. That way we can have a small psych out before stabbing. Because the person wearing it should be dead, not behind them with a blade drawn. See if there are spikes, lances, pikes, anything like that around. Maybe heads mounted on them somewhere along the wall.We can impale someone out of range of a blade and as soon as they are stuck, let go, close the gap and silence them with a blade. Retrieve their weapons and out spear/lance/pike.
>>536398We will need to use guerilla tactics and carry sand/dirt in our pockets as well as coating our entire group in it. We must blend in and crawl low to the ground if there is grassu cover, squat waddle if sparse cover and hunch hustle if no cover. Travel as downwind as possible so if we are spotted coming up on a group, our sand/dirt can travel with the breeze to our enemies eyes. Strike throats, temples, above the ear and the back of the head, slightly above the neck.Can we get an inventory check, please?
>>536413I vote we keep sand in our pockets as an emergency self defense weapon.

Rolled 88 (1d100)>>541494Continue to observe the guards as the night goes on. Once we are under the cover of darkness we can make our next move

Well it was fun while it lasted. Might pick it back up again some other time
Noo OP come back to us
>>553410I'm here if you guys want to keep questing
>>553561Was there no part two to >>546170I just caught up actually so I assumed there was and it was never posted which is why it died.While they are changing guard send ourself viscera rail and Aietus against the wall so the guards cannot are them. We will Command them to search for a second exit. Once found Use there legion armor to fool anyone then run into long enough to allow them to kill or capture them. Being as silent as we can trying not to raise alarm we will start with the sleepers and then the guards. Capture when convenient kill when necessary.We will leave Thaddeus and celer giving celer our carbine to keep watch and distract and fire at the base if things go wrong covering our escape or distracting them as we kill the rest.
