October 26th, 2287

Went and talked to that robot at Sanctuary Hills this morning. That thing is friggin' insane! Kept talking like it knew me from before the war! I told it that it must be malfunctioning, ha! It mentioned a man and a child might be hiding nearby but I thoroughly searched the whole settlement and found no one alive. Lucky for them that I didn't find them, if they really were there. Stupid robot. It also said someone in Concord might be able to help me. With what, it didn't explain. In any case, Codsworth (stupid friggin' name, but that's what the damn thing told me to call it) put me onto my next target, after I had checked out that Vault.

The Vault. That's where my day got friggin' weird. Ok, so I went back up to the Vault site and pushed the button to open the door. Well it wasn't a door, it was an elevator. Down and down it went, and at the bottom was the real door; all cog shaped and with 111 right in the middle. There was nothing alive inside except some radroaches. A bunch of them. Also a lot of skeletons laying about.

Coming off the ramp from the cog door, I saw two small doors; one to the left and one to the right. I took the left hand door which opened into a corridor and another door. That door opened into a longer corridor with a bunch of radroaches and a corpse that wasn't a skeleton like the others. This one died recently, probably from the roaches. I dealt with the roaches then checked out the corpse.

It was a woman, probably about 30 or so. She had brown hair and was wearing a vault suit like many of the skeletons laying about, only it was in way better shape. At first something really bothered me about this dead lady, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Then it hit me. This was the same lady that I saw in my dream the night our crew reached the outskirts of Boston! What the hell?! Was my dream actually a vision from this dead lady's past?! Anyway, all she had on her was her vault suit, a gold ring (that I later sold to Connie at Abernathy's), and an audio log. I popped it into my PipBoy and gave it a listen.

The audio log starts with what sounds like a recorded voice over a loud speaker saying something about "cryo stasis suspended", whatever that means, and then a brief pause. Next there is a woman's voice saying "This is the one." followed by a man's voice saying "Open it". You then hear mechanical sounds and hissing like something pressurized is opening. After the thing is opened a man coughs and a baby cries, then the first people try to take the baby from the man, both of whom were apparently inside what was opened. The first man threatens him, the guy still resists, and the next thing you hear is a gun shot. The first people take the baby and leave. The tape ends.

After listening to the tape, I left the corpse where it was and proceeded deeper into the vault, eventually coming to a couple of chambers full of strange freezer pods with frozen dead people in them. In one of the chambers, I found one of the pods open and right adjacent from that one, according to the records on the computer in the room, is the pod that contained the man and baby. Well, the man was still there. Frozen, and shot dead. Like the dead woman in the corridor, this man was in that dream I had. Poor lady must've seen her husband killed and baby snatched. Man, that's some messed up crap.

Well, I left the pods containing the dead people alone as it seemed like bad juju trying to get into them to search for valuables, and after I was done looting what little there was to loot in the vault, I went back to Red Rocket, figuring that was enough exploring for one day. Besides taking the aforementioned trip to Abernathy's to sell the gold ring I found on the woman's corpse, I patrolled the area near the Raider camp I took out on the 23rd to make sure they didn't have friends return. Caught one Raider jerk snooping around near where I stacked the bodies but killed'm pretty quickly. Tomorrow I'll investigate Concord and see what's there.

Victoria out.

What a strange visit to that vault. I smiled because (as one who does not play Fallout) I'm as clueless as Victoria is about that vault place. biggrin.gif

Lol, there was a bit of weaving going on there. There is a certain NPC who uses chems (read: drugs) to get visions. Visions of the past, present, and future. Apparently in this "lore" it is believed others possess this ability too, when under the influence of chems.

It is neat to see Vault 111 from the perspective of an outsider, trying to figure out what happened there. Sort of like Adrian Monk piecing together the clues to a case. Except with much fewer phobias.

Yes. Victoria now has a quest in the PipBoy telling her to report the kidnapping. Khajiit is guessing that she can do this in DC, but she couldn't really care less.

That does not make sense to me. Report the kidnapping? To who? People are literally killed and eaten by monsters every day in the Commonwealth. Who really gives a crap?

Yeah, guess it's just a way for "do gooders" or the curious to do the main quest. Khajiit is guessing that Victoria won't get to progress very far into faction quests, should she decide to leave her "lone wolf" life behind and join one of those. Minutemen would probably suit her better as Brotherhood is a bit too rigid, and she probably won't even see the Institute besides the attacks by Synths, and she couldn't care less about saving robot people. At the moment however, there is no evidence that Victoria will ever totally leave the Raider lifestyle behind. Even when she helps people, it's always with an eye for what she gains by doing so or to gain their trust to make betraying them easier.

Wow, she saw that lady from her dream? That's spooky. Sucks that she had to sell the woman's ring, but I guess that's how life in the harsh land of the Commonwealth is. sad.gif

Off-topic, but I was looking at some old posts in Beth's older Skyrim forums just for amusement, and was surprised to see Khajiit has been posting since way back before 11/11/11! I didn't know that this one has been around for so many years!

Acadian, you don't know how spooky it is finding some of these vaults, especially the uninhabited ones. ohmy.gif I remember Cho Zenwahn found Vault 94 (I think) which had nothing but corpses inside. I thought it was creepy, but he wanted to thoroughly explore the place, just to have a place to rest, and also it was jam-packed full of supplies. It is interesting though that Bethesda thought to add places like this, full of nobody alive, but lots of lootable things.

You ever consider bringing Buffy into Fallout? I think she'd have a blast (pun) with energy weapons and grenades.

Re:Nora's ring
Well Victoria wanted the caps lol

Yes, Khajiit joined Bethsoft in Sept. of 2009, according to their records. Back then I was mainly trying to get help understanding mods for TES3: Morrowind. I was playing Oblivion and Fallout3 on Xbox 360. Seems like half a lifetime ago!

Khajiit agrees! She might have to go through a racial transformation during the interdimmensional transport, but she would remain unchanged otherwise tongue.gif

If I get this correctly, you're using an alternate start so two dead NPCs are actually the parents of the supposed protagonist?

The screenie with the frozen dead guy is creepy.

I also hope that Victoria won't leave her career of a raider behind, we need some bad galz too. evillol.gif

Well the dead person in the corridor killed by roaches represents the vanilla player character. The dead person in the Cryo pod is the vanilla PC's spouse. Khajiit would go into more detail but it would be spoilerific. Suffice it to say, the events concerning the people in Vault 111 were fairly tragic, but while she realizes how messed up it is, Victoria really doesn't care about what happened there. With the vault thoroughly looted, its on to Concord for Victoria!

Interesting the way this is panning out for Vicky. I think I'd have preferred a story that started out a good bit away from Sanctuary, but it works for her, and is making in interesting!

We'll get the Concord area stuff out of the way and then it'll be up to Victoria on where she goes from there. Maybe she'll cut across the northern part of the map and find the sea, or perhaps she'll visit Diamond City. So many options!

I'm sure that FO 3 & 4 are great games. I can imagine Buffy might be a sniper if she ended up there. My love is for medieval fantasy though and there is plenty of that to enjoy for now though. tongue.gif

Oh okay, sir Acadian. Dang. I just know you'd enjoy FO. I'd also want to hear your impressions. I do appreciate that you at least get our perspectives, and seem quite immersed by them.

Oh wow! A lot of people seem to have found Beth's forums because of modding, or because of the A-bomb. biggrin.gif I feel like I am one of the few people who just sort of showed up there for no reason. I had no idea Beth had its own forums, you see.

Anyways. Don't want to stray too far off-topic. This one can proceed with the story, whenever appropriate.

Honestly not sure when the next entry will get out. We've got a really big moral dilemma coming up that will set the tone for a good portion of the rest of the game. Khajiit is exploring different angles to it. Definitely want to do what's right for Victoria.
