She's smoking! Is it finally possible in the vanilla game or do you need a mod?

Great story, my favorite so far! goodjob.gif Not only is she skilled with swords, guns and mines, we see that Victoria also has at least some good side to her as she ponders what to do next. I'm looking forward to the next update.

Yes the smoking is a mod. It also makes a save game in Survival mode!

Thanks for your opinion on the story. Can’t say more now but this one thinks the next entry will be good.

Wow, what fantastic pix! She appears to have changed her face quite a lot. Yep. Go back to Post #11 folks, you can see in the "clean up" pic what Vicky looks like as a prim 'n' proper type.

That laser beam 'trap' wasn't much of a trap; looks way too obvious, and then you can just jump over the thing! And Abernathy looks like Ringo Starr. laugh.gif

Nice 'coin slot' in the explosion pic. tongue.gif Good to see Victoria back in.

Persephone definitely approves of killing Raiders with swords. It also looks like Victoria 'disarmed' that Raider while she was at it!

Wow, Victoria is really racking up the Raiders. She looks like a wild Celt with that blue face paint and crazy hair!

Now decisions, decisions. Victoria seems better at killing Raiders than being one...

She’s done some decent raiding in this series (like Tenpines, and sacking Miller’s caravan), but none of the other Raider groups would stop shooting long enough to ask her to join sad.gif

They will all suffer for that mistake...

Been a while since we posted an entry in Victoria’s log. Khajiit has a new Fallout4 project he wants to start, but doesn’t feel right about leaving this one as is, so expect a new entry for Victoria soon.

November 3rd, 2287

What a day.

I started out at sunrise after spending half the damn night wide awake thinking about my path forward. On the one hand, I don’t have to be like I was anymore as I have good people that will support me. On the other hand, I’ve been raiding so long that I’m not sure I can stop. Well, as I left Red Rocket I decided to try and be different and see how today’s events play out. I headed off to the southeast.

While on the road southeast of Concord, I ran into a caravaneer called “Trash Can Carla”. I resisted the urge to kill her and take her goods and actually bought a new helmet from her. I left her as she was heading back towards Concord and I continued southeast to one of those old diners.

The diner turned out to be a trading post of sorts. When I arrived on the scene there appeared to be a stand off between the diner owners and a chem trader and his hired muscle. I approached the chem trader, Wolfgang, and he told me that the owner of the diner, Trudy, owed him for some chems he sold to her son. While I agreed with Wolfgang that the owners should pay what they owed him, I recognized that this was a perfect opportunity to try out a different approach to handling things. I offered to talk to Trudy and see if I could convince her to pay up.

Having decided to end this standoff peacefully, I approached the diner. Trudy was in one of the windows looking super pissed. I tried reasoning with her but she wouldn’t listen. The ensuing gun fight ended with both Trudy and her son dead. After the dust settled, the diner trading post was under new management. Wolfgang expressed his thanks and I left the diner and headed west.

West of the diner I passed by an old cabin where I had a short battle with some ferals and then took a road southwest to a huge dam. On the other side of the dam was an abandoned settlement that appears to have had some robot liberation nuts living there at one point. I looted the place and made my way back to Abernathy farm to sell some junk.

When I arrived at Abernathy, I found that they were under attack by a group of Raiders. Without thinking, I sprang into action to help defend the settlement. The firefight was intense, with molotovs and bullets flying around everywhere. Pure chaos. It was so much fun! At the end of the fight, the Raiders lay on the dirt, dead to the last man and woman. Miraculously there were no casualties for the Abernathy family. After things settled down, the realization hit me: I had actively helped defend people against Raiders, not out of self interest, but because I cared about their survival. The universe, it seemed, had spoken.

Well, I guess I’m done with the Raider life. The past couple of days has proven to me that I can survive without being a total jerk. Looking back at life up until this point, I’ve done a lot of bad that I regret, but now I feel I’m on a path to becoming something better. I’m going to take up permanent residence here at Abernathy and help out with the farming and defense. As I write this, Lucy Abernathy is sleeping soundly beside me. It seems she was very appreciative of my help in defending her family today. I don’t know where my road will lead, but for the first time since Liams Own, the path is as bright as a nuclear sun.

Victoria out.



Editor’s Note: This was the last entry in the journal. We checked with the trader that found the journal and he claimed to have found it far to the east of where Abernathy farm was. Victoria’s ultimate fate is unknown, but a few reports from around The Commonwealth at that time mention a person matching Victoria’s description, usually in the context of helping fight off a Raider attack. Perhaps she became a wandering adventurer, trying to find redemption for her savage past. However she ended up, hopefully she found peace.

Ugh apparently Imgur is having trouble so the pics aren’t loading. Sorry. sad.gif

Wha? Is that it from Victoria then? sad.gif Well, at least there was a conclusion, at least. And we are here to catch it.

I like the "under new management" part. laugh.gif And some of your pics do work. Vicky's outfit (with the belt across her boobs) makes her look like a true raider once again. smile.gif

Well, that’s the conclusion of the journal anyway...
Khajiit has a feeling we will be hearing from Victoria again at some point!

Heh, so much for ending Trudy's standoff peacefully. Pure chaos = So much fun! Hee!

Seems like Victoria has turned over a new leaf before possibly fading into the badlands. Nice. happy.gif

All pics are working now. Apparently Khajiit managed to delete that first pic from Imgur some how.

I cannot say I ever had a character who agreed with the drug dealer. Blowing his head off however...

I like Victoria's hat. It reminds me a lot of Doctor Aphra's.

At least she had a happy ending. That is a good way to go out.

Victoria’s journal has reached its end, but her story isn’t finished yet. We will see her again one day!

Better late than never - you wrapped up Victoria's journey very good, the final paragraphs are touching, and despite mistakes she may have done earlier in her life, she'll try and be a better person from now on. Did you conclude her game completely?

Yeah the save is gone, *but* the mod Khajiit used to create her character (Start Me Up) will allow me to bring a version of her back at any time. Which there may be plans to do...
