    I rewrote the legend as a giant DLC-like mod for New Vegas (I know how it sounds). Basically, dumped nearly everything into Arizona and made the "mod" Caesar's Legion focused. I reduced Victor Presper's role because I thought his arc was too cliché, and made the NCR, specifically the Companion Corporal Christina Royce, the main antagonist instead.

    A scouting team (made of who would've been Presper's henchmen but lead by Corporal Royce) infiltrated Caesar's Land as far as Colorado and discovered the Boulder Dome. The "Dome Dwellers" as I call them, would all be asymptomatic carriers of The New Plague just like the Left 4 Dead survivors. The initial surviving infected scientists and staff experimented on themselves to remove the sterilization effect.

    To avoid spreading the Plague, the Dwellers never ventured farther than Dog City Denver. So when the Republic squad arrived, the Dome Dwellers tried to keep them from leaving. The squad was ready to slaughter the them but instead bargained for *both parties* freedoms by offering to fund research for a cure.

    They bring a few scientists (including Presper) into the mainland. The escaped prisoners are now NCR felons brought in from New California to be test subjects in the Tibbets Prison Facility. The presence of The New Plague activates ODESA (Odysseus rename) and kicks off the plot described in the holy texts (original design docs).

    I thought this change would make a better moral dilemma because it displays humanity going full circle by Royce using The New Plague for what it was originally intended for: to win a war. Regardless of the global destruction it will cause, she especially sees the inhabitants of Caesar's Land as acceptable losses.

    Legion Questline: You just get a letter inviting you to take a vacation in Caesar's Land.

    Mr. House & Yes Man Questline: You are tasked with finding Boulder Dome and retrieving blueprints for a better model of Securi-Tron for mass production.

    NCR Questline: Original *Find the Escaped Prisoners* Quest, but under the cover of being a freelance slaver.

    The player would enter the mod through Hoover Dam and most likely be forced to ... at least accept ... to do the NCR Questline. For any other Questline besides the Legion one, they'll need the Mark of Caesar to use as a passport to enter the post nuclear Southwest. If you don't have it already, the Corporal would give you a counterfeit Mark.

    Still haven't decided what the new Player moniker would be. RPG monikers should be what most characters would call the player unless the writers go out of their way to make everyone call the player something specific. There's the player's cover as The Slaver, and then there's the reputation, rule-of-cool names like The Degenerate, The Profligate, and The Legionary.

    Ignoring the current state of the series and talking about "what could've been", if Obsidian *really did* make New Vegas to tell us to let go of a videogame series that we all hold dear in our lives and that they themselves no longer feel the same way for their own creation ... is very heartbreaking to say the least.
