    Ok, I am starting a new roleplay for new players who are being delayed for getting started on the others. This is also a chance for newbies to roleplay to get their teeth wet, as well as older players to introduce or practice characters. Not sure where this will lead, but have some fun with it.

    It's set in the days following Fallout 1.

    BOS commanders have found that remnants of the Mutants Army have moved south, taking with them the ability create new mutants through the process of "dipping". Early indication of a new mutant army being built somewhere south, near what used to be the city of Tejuana and possibly from mutiple locations.

    Followers of the Apocalypse might be involved. Definite indications that the Mutants are gaining strength.

    As the vaultdweller has gone North and not available to lead the raid.

    the BOS sees this as a threat and is recruiting an army from BOS members and local mercenary/caravan guards/adventures to travel across the wasteland to destroy this new menace.

    Anyone interested in joining?

    Note, while I am initiating this mission, I highly advise players to take the initiative in moving the story, as I will not be managing.

    Sign me up.

    Hmm, since we know that the BoS and V13 interacted some after the events of FO1 could any V13 members join up?

    Im thinking, have my characther be a vault security guy who decided to leave with the vault dweller, but since the Vault dweller was already way off by then, he couldn't find him and wound up wandering into shadysands, and met up with a BoS scout there.

    Name----Jack O'Neill

    Height- 5'3
    weight- 200 lbs (not fat, just well muscled as he spent a ton of time in the vaults gym)
    Somewhat shy at times, not a ladies man but able to speak when he needs to.
    Has never killed before, but belives he can if nessacary.

    .45 colt
    40 rounds .45 JHP (5 mags)
    firstaid kit
    2 V13 water flasks
    small cooking pot, pan, and fork spoon.
    lighter w/o extra fuel
    1 portable dumbell, fill with sand to use

    Yes, but remember Vault 13 is raided by the Enclave in FAllout 2 so the V13 is still pretty secret after the events of Fallout 1.

    True, but in the dialouge in FO2 on the tanker, we find out that a group left the vault after the overseer kicked the dweller out, so this guy could simply be one of them.

    Can I do a ICC post ?

    Have my characther approach yours, saying he heard that Max is in charge of the expiditon.

    Welsh, how much will the BoS supply us ?

    Will we pick up any combat armour's, more ammo weapons?

    Or have some inital quest to do something like find an old storage depot old records indicate is near the mutie base ?

    as this is a RP for newbs to prove their metal, i'll be joining in a couple of days (when i'm back from the festival)

    probably a no good bloodthirsty merc that kills just for the fun of it (probably a racist too)

    i'll think about it while i'm away

    PS: EVilzealot, next time you post you might wanna leave more open spaces and such. reading full text is pretty annoying, especially if they are dialogues (it's not such a big deal for descriptions)

    PPS: and it would be pretty unlikely that a standard merc lowlife would get to meet the head of the elders (-> general maxson) imo

    the vaultdweller got to see him because he had done something others had never been able to do, not just for a stupid missionbriefing

    dont get us wrong, we are trying to give you some pointers

    we (read i) still have a lot to learn i think

    note to welsh: if you arent going to mod this, who is? or will it be pure freestyle?

    I am in total agreement, SuAside. The point of this is to help out people who are new to role playing. No one is here to tear anyone else down, just to give some advice so that everyone can become more fine-tuned role players who help to add to and enrich a storyline. Everyone, including me, can use work to become better role players.

    Since Albatross asked he's co-manager.

    Think of this story as something like Conan the Barbarian (as in the Howard Pulps) meets fallout.

    If you are unsure of what that means, go to the library or a bookstore and pick up some of the classic Conan - the Howard stories.

    Pulpish, violent adventure.

    As for Max- Max is coming with a group of BOS veterans. THat's about all the BOS will spare. More than that, you're on your own.

    One thing, players, especially those that don't post, can be expected to be killed off. This is war damnit and in war, there's bloodshed.

    Hell I'm in for shure

    I guess I will try this character

    name-Fenix Black
    eye color-Brown
    hair color-Dark brown

    Inventory-His personal modified laser pistol,Special steel rimmed backpack,standard food and water supplies and a good amount of cash.spiked knuckles and a .38 calibre deringer.

    Appearence-Fenix is gaunt and lightly muscled.He wears a light white labcoat and black khaki pants with a long sleeve grey shirt underneath.he also wears a pair of glasses.he seems to be of aryan descent and his hair is ruffles looking

    attitude-he prefers to fight with brains over brawn,using tech or underhanded tactics to win.He is a tech master even though he is a low level initiate guard for the BOS he spends most of his time messing with tech when off guard duty or practicing shooting.

    weapons-his derringer is kept in a concealed wrist holster for when enemies think he is defenseless and close for the kill or when he drops his laser pistol.his spiked knuckles serve the same purposeand he always wears them when traveling or on guard duty. His most valuable and loved possesion is his laser pistol which is different in the way that it has a stock so it is held like a rifle for greater accuracy also it it wired to an external battery carried on Fenix's back that is powered with a small uranium slug(safely shielded for radiation)providing greater power to the weapon and eliminating the need for fusion cells.

    hope u like my experiment.I am open to suggestions.

    Hmm, maybe reduce his proficency with the weapon, as far as hittin on target instantly, but have him trace his shots, since he doesnt exactly have to conserve power.

    have him get better with time.

    I'd suggest talking to my character when I intro him in a few minutes. Most of the chain of command will probably go to him as a go between guy for the mercs and Max. This is all taking place at the hub right now so keep that in mind.
