On the Road

With a hail of hot screaming lead, the Raiders sprung their ambush on the unsuspecting Scavengers. The small group of scavers were heading to an old neighborhood between Diamond City and Vault 81 to see if there was anything worth scavenging. Upon arriving, the Raiders who had set up camp there opened fire on them and the chaos of battle descended. Before the battle, one of the Scavengers decided to check the area around the Vault 81 entrance for any loot, and upon hearing the gun shots hurried cautiously back to the road to find her group. By the time she got to the small neighborhood, her group was slowly beating back the Raiders. Victory, it seemed, was assured, but things were about to go horribly wrong.

The Raiders were indeed wiped out, but the fighting drew the attention of a nearby patrol of Super Mutants. The late comer, decided to crouch behind a tree across the road as one of the Mutants erupted from the side of a house wielding a large board as a melee weapon. She watched as the board wielding Mutant killed one of her fellows with a skull crushing swing, and it was in turn killed by two of her remaining associates. Using the houses for cover, two other Mutants attacked the remaining Scavengers. Having not been detected, the late comer decided to flank behind the mutant closest to her and managed to take it out with her assault carbine. Meanwhile the other mutant managed to blow off one of the other scavers’ head, which upon witnessing, the other scaver became completely demoralized. He fled and the last Mutant gave chase, and neither were ever seen again. Not for the first time, the late comer found herself all alone.

Now that the battle was over and the little neighborhood was at peace again, the remaining scaver on the scene went about looting the bodies and checking the buildings for anything worth something. “At least I won’t have to share any of the caps I make off selling this [censored] with anyone.”, she thought as she stuffed her bag full. After gathering up anything of value, the Lone Scaver started the long walk towards Diamond City. She had never been to Diamond City but the Abernathys, who were some farmers she stayed with a few months ago, frequently traveled there to trade their tatos and melons. Those farmers were killed by a wandering band of Raiders just when she started thinking she could settle down on their farm and make a new life for herself. The only survivors of that fight were the Lone Scaver (who was wounded during the fighting and was forced to retreat) and the Abernathys’ cat, Maisie, who was smart enough to get lost when the bullets started flying. Life in the Commonwealth can be brutal, cruel, and all too often, short.

The Lone Scaver thought about that day as she made her way to the main road that led to Diamond City. “Best let it go.”, she thought and paused by an old mail dropbox near an alley way, to stash some of her loot in order to lighten her load a bit. She thought she smelled the aroma of something cooking wafting down the alley to her right, but the sudden eruption of gunfire down the road towards Diamond City drew her attention, and into another fight for survival. In the Commonwealth, such is life.

Ambush!

The Flames of Battle

The Mutants Enter the Fray

Taking Cover

Should’ve Stayed in Cover

Routed

The Lone Scaver

It's a three way! But not the good kind! ohmy.gif

Sounds like the Lone Scavver is indeed Victoria. With some bad times between the last time we saw her and this new tale.

That first pic with the mutant is way too close!

Ewww! She should have remained in cover! ohmy.gif

The LoneVictoriaScavver is packing a service rifle I see.

So question... are shots Khajiit posts to Imgur really blurry?

1. A three way indeed! Victoria is actually visible in the tree line in the background but it may be blurry on Imgur.

2. Yeah she basically had to flee that area because of the Raiders. She just said “[censored] it” and decided to move on. She eventually met up with that group of scavers (not really, they would’ve attacked her too if she had been detected, but it worked well enough for Khajiit’s purposes) and “travelled around with them”. Obviously the Abernathys are just fine and if we went to their farm they would be alive and well unless this one killed them personally or used console commands like he did with Victoria’s original Raider crew. For the purposes of this series we just won’t go to that part of the map.

3. Yeah I don’t like how the scaver is looking away from the mutant. At that point she was still focused on that Raider to the left in “Flames of Battle”. You better believe that if something that big was running up on Khajiit with a big ol’ beat stick, it would have this one’s full attention!

4. Yep, lost her head a bit there! tongue.gif

5. We are indeed running this Service Rifle mod. Khajiit likes how rough the models look. The one Victoria is seen carrying is actually a carbine version of the standard Service Rifle.

So in “Ambush!” can you see Victoria in the background tree line?

Ok good. For some reason when Khajiit clicks on any link that links to Imgur, the pictures always seem blurry.

Perhaps Khajiit should wipe the blood of his enemies off his monitor?

Lol, well this one primarily uses his cell phone for all of this. It may be fine on the PC. Khajiit will have to check it.

Victoria returns!

I like it how you avoided mentioning her name, instead referring to her simply as the Lone Scaver.

Although she left her raider-like life behind, raiders didn't leave her.

Let's see what adventures await her on her way to the Diamond City.
