    Howdy NMA,

    Long time lurker, first time poster. A sudden termination has me with extra time on my hands and in between nervously cleaning and applying work work I've taken up playing Fallout.

    I'm having fun but I'm frustrated because I'm doing pretty poorly. I think as much as I love my character concept it might be flawed and I wanted some advice on what I can do.
    My SPECIAL is:
    S-7 P-5 E-4 C-7 I-4 A-5 L-8.

    And if that's too much then P is probably one less, I don't have the game open now.

    My tagged skills were melee, unarmed, and speech. I'm trying to play a lucky, silver tongued, pugilist.
    But on my first play through I was losing a companion every random encounter, so I tried deleting that save and running FIXIT.
    Now I'm not sure if the idiots are wearing their metal armor or if metal armor is that good because someone is still getting gunned down.

    What do you guys think? Is there hope for my concept or is it DOA?

    You can equip the companions with armors in Fallout 1? :eek:

    I´m shocked.

    If I understood FIXIT right, only with that. Otherwise I got two extra metal armors for nothing.
