I expected that Linda would lend a hand to Ringo. wink.gif

Can she make her own gecko steaks? I'm not sure what's the Survival requirement for cooking gecko meat, but it should be fairly low.

Mariah found herself in Big Mountain over the past couple weeks, but she did what she needed to do and reclaimed her missing body parts. Yes, the perks of the cybernetic replacements were nice but...well, Mariah prefers actually having her natural organs.

Most of these screenshots will be from that venture. But Mariah also took care of some more quests in the Mojave (most notably the one for Cass). Surprisingly, it did not include Legion killing (well, except for one patrol that rudely interrupted a brief adventure with Raul). However, she was then was forced into the Sierra Madre investigating an abandoned Brotherhood of Steel bunker. That is where her story currently is.

Extra pics from earlier adventures in Mariah's story that I had not put here previously:

The Long 15 (I'm disappointed that there is nothing really there and that you can't go there normally unless you launch a nuke from The Divide at the NCR. So I no-clipped to go out there.)

More energy explosions is pretty explosive!

It's the attack of the 50 ft. Mariah!

I am guessing the last thing to go through that feral ghoul's mind was .357 magnum round?

I think that was the hunting rifle I was using, so to be technical it is a .308, but yeah, basically.

Mariah found the Stealth Suit! I really liked that. It felt like having a companion, without all of that being shot in the back business and constantly blocking the doorway that real companions do.

Well, she passed the stealth tests with flying colors and killed all of the enemies in that high school simulation, so she thinks she did well. But for some reason, she hasn't heard back yet. Although killing the Think Tank may have ruined her chances at the job. Oh well, that's what they get for lobotomizing her.

Probably so, because one of the mad doctors was overseeing her progress in the school. Still, neither of my characters so far let the Think Tank alive.

Ugh, Dr. Borous. It was funny the first time going through the high school test, but after having to go through it 4 or 5 times I was sick of hearing him and the same self-aggrandizing dialogue over and over. Another reason I'm glad I put down the Think Tank.

Finished off the Dead Money DLC a couple days ago and have some new screenshots from Mariah's adventure. It's a bit of a long list.

Echoes of a Bygone Era

Hunting the Hunters

Whaddya Buyin'?! (Bonus points to those who know that reference.)

Ghost People, Meet Holorifle

The Quiet Halls of the Sierra Madre

Face-to-Face at Last

Elijah Vs. Mariah

Penance for Your Deeds, Elijah

Escaping the Sierra Madre Vault

Beginning Again. Letting go.

A New Starlet in Town

Soon I will be truly finishing the game by going the independent route. Left the Wild Card quests purposely unfinished so I could make a decision on it.

It's Vera Keyes! I love her voice actress - Laura Bailey. She has a fantastic voice.

It was nice to face off with Elijah, and give him everything he deserves...

Mariah is looking hot in her outfit.

Congrads on doing Dead Money. I think that's the super-tough DLC, right? Maybe I have it confused with something else.

Who are those ghostly-looking apparitions following her around?

A lot of these are really dark and I can't see what's going on, but the final pic stands out. smile.gif

Dead Money was partly inspiried by survival horror games like Resident Evil. The monsters are called Ghost People. Technically they are mutants, and they can only be killed by dismembering them.

Yeah, Laura Bailey has a great voice. Very recognizable too.

Nobody pulls off that look quite like Mariah. But I suppose I'm biased.

That's what I heard, so I put it off for last. But since my character was maxed out at level 50, it wasn't hard. Probably would've been a cooler experience if I didn't get that powerful, but I still enjoyed it.

If you are talking about the things with the masks, yeah, they're the Ghost People that SubRosa was referring to. If you are talking about the blue and white things, those are the holograms around the Sierra Madre. The hologram guards attack you if you are spotted by them and they are impossible to kill (you have to find a switch that turns them off).

Sorry about the dark pictures. They always look fine and bright enough to me when I take them, but I guess that won't always be the case for others.

Maybe it was just because my character was so tough, but that they made it sound like it was so hard to kill them when it really wasn't. If I didn't dismember them right when I killed Ghost People, I could pretty easily do it when they were unconscious. Though guns turned out to be quite ineffective until I really started loading up at the end of the DLC, so I used a knife spear virtually the whole time. Fortunate that I started putting points in melee even though it was late on, but the knife spear itself is a really good melee weapon anyway.

And so Mariah's story has come to an end. She fought at the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, leading to New Vegas's independence from both the NCR and the Legion. While certainly not everything about her decision was ideal to her, she believed that what she was making was the right choice in the end. She tried to be as pleasant with General Oliver as she could be. After all, she didn't hold significant ill will toward the NCR. But she felt that they had overstepped their bounds, which would and had already caused trouble for the NCR and Mojave Wasteland.

I have a save not very long ago that is before I irrevocably started pursuing the independent path, in case there are any other quests I want to do prior. While I'm taking the independent path as the "canon" ending, I am implementing a few pieces of my own headcanon to the story.

Here are the final screenshots from Mariah's story. Not every shot is from the final battle, as there were a few new locations for her to discover beforehand. Forgive the deluge of pictures. I actually took a few out.

On the Road Again

Ready for Takeoff

The Shining Beacon of Justice

Decision Time

Who Needs an Army?

Ka-blooie!

Incinerated

Just a Flesh Wound

And That Mask Will Make a Nice Trophy

Legion Body Parts a-Flyin'

Legion. Legion (Limbs) Everywhere

Well, This is Going to Be an Awkward Conversation...

A New Future for the Strip

But You Know What They Say About War...

____________________________________________________________________________



Kind of sad that Mariah's story is finished. I wish there were more adventures in store for her. More new places to see. Alas, it is not meant to be.

I have some final thoughts on the game itself, but I will save that for later. I'm also interested in what others think when I type them up.

Mariah is on the road again with Willie Nelson Veronica.

I liked the airport down to the south. It is too bad you cannot go into the tower or other buildings.

Ready to serve up a Justice Sandwich to Evildoers!

The parts of Laninie's beard look a lot like Azura's Star from Skyrim.

Bowling for Legionaries! Mariah got a Strike!

A seven ten split!

Time to tell the general to get out. At least Mariah didn't throw him off the cliff.

It feels good. Didn't expect to be at this point all that long ago since I couldn't get into the game the first time I played it a little over 4 years ago.

As for Mariah, that is a good question. Haven't really thought about it. I suppose she will just be sticking around Vegas and helping build it into a nation. There are a few other reasons she is sticking around too, though, including someone she has grown fond of (no, not at Gomorrah or the Atomic Wrangler).

I do wish there were more adventures for her. But I will just have to continue the adventures of the other Mariahs in Fallout 1 and 4 (4 should be close to done soon too).
