I'm playing Fallout 2, and nearly everyone in the game is desperate to kill me... does anyone know why? My karma is currently at Shield of Hope, but in towns where I'm neutral everyone there tries to murder me. For example, Francis in BH wouldn't talk to me and said that he would not associate with scum, the sheriff in Redding said that he'd "heard about me" or something, and all the cops in NCR try to murder me as soon as they see me. I've never done anything really bad, and I'm not a slaver. As far as I can tell the problem goes away when I've gotten good rep in the town, but why do people hate me so much? Btw this is my second playthrough and my first with the latest resto patch. Could this have something to do with it?
