It's Christmas time in the Commonwealth of "Snake" Logan and since he just did some favors for the Finch family from the Finch Farm, they invited him to spend Christmas with them. Maybe he will put the rusty workshop to some use and decorate the farm a little as the family will be working in the field. After all Logan is probably the only man in the Commonwealth, ghouls excluded, who remembers Christmas.

In other news, Abigail Finch cleaned a pair of jeans from her late son Jake and gave it to Logan, the only problem was that she didn't have any shirt that would fit him. But anyway, a man who wears a powerful leaded combat chest piece, probably doesn't need a shirt.

Wow Lopov. Is that for real? Or RP?

Wait, I do remember Halloween was in Fallout 4. How amazing.

Some places in the Commonwealth get actually decorated on Christmas and I also think on some other real-life holidays.

In my case it's a mix of RP and real-game events: after doing some favors for the family they allow you to use their workshop, but I RP-ed that they invited Logan to spend Christmas together.

Abigail's outfit is in fact mod-added, it's a pair of plain jeans without shirt.

Diamond City gets decorated for Halloween, and from what I read, Christmas as well.

When I feel up to, and I have too much time to kill, I'm going to write snippets from Vinnie's world.

---

The only sound that could be heard in Sanctuary Hills, were footsteps of the man, that was placed here as a part of the witness protection program. He arrived here 210 years ago yet Sanctuary Hills on that day looked completely different than now. Ruined houses, derelict cars, with big roaches and huge blowflies lurking among them.

“Sin embargo, la humanidad sobrevivió” the survivor of Sanctuary Hills, Vinnie “Slugger” Sinistra, said aloud, his voice of a heavy smoker echoing down the empty road. He was right – despite all, the humanity seemed to survive. A makeshift camp outside one of the houses, unlit candles in another one, and music coming from pre-war radios were good enough signs that the humanity survived.

However, it seemed to Vinnie Sinistra, that also insects survived. More than survived, they even mutated and grew to enormous sizes. Blowflies were now big and dangerous, and could pepper their targets with some disgusting goo-like matter. Not many things could scare Vinnie, but these disgusting flying creatures scared him to death. And who knows, what else awaits him in this deformed wasteland.

When shadows fell over Sanctuary Hills, Vinnie found a shelter in one of the houses, and the couch in this house served as his bed. He fell asleep, but his hands were tightly clasped around the 10mm pistol laying on his chest.

I think it is the rest of the wasteland that is going to need to fear the coming of Vinnie!

Yeah I agree. Within a month or so, those blowflies will be scared of HIM, not the other way around.

@SubRosa & Renee - many will fear Vinnie, that's true. Still, he's not Rattler-like evil, so he won't kill for pleasure or out of sheer boredom (I guess), but he won't hesitate to kill someone if "necessary" in his opinion, like if they'll witness his crimes / if they'll stand against him / etc. I'd say that if judging by DnD alignments, Rattler was Chaotic Evil, whereas Vinnie is Lawful evil.

Today's story features his first encounter with alive people, namely raiders.

---

“Hey, fatso! Eat this!”

Jim, loaded with drugs as every other day, threw a molotov cocktail in the direction of the fat man walking by the stream.

“Gotchaaaaaa!” he shouted as his target was set on fire. “Look at that boys! I hit that pregnant brahmin like a m...”

BANG! BANG BANG!

Jim could never finish the sentence because Vinnie “Slugger” Sinistra silenced him forever. Jim was the first alive human he met in the wasteland, and even he didn’t stay alive for very long.

“Jim’s dead, guys!” shouted one of the raiders, that were running down to see what was going on. “Kill the f*****!”

Four of them attacked at once, accompanied by the dog. Vinnie got a little rusty because of being frozen for so long, but not rusty enough to deal with a band of drug-addled raiders. He’d prefer to smash their heads with the tire iron he found a while ago, but there were too many of them and scattered all over the cliff, shooting at him from a distance.

After they were taken care of, Vinnie searched their belongings – he took some stimpaks, some ammo and some food. He didn’t know why each of them was carrying a few bottle caps.. Maybe they were collecting them out of fun?

"He's Dead Jim."

I love that Vinnie killed the first human he met. Though granted, it was not something that can be held against him. Even Hecate - my nicest Fallout character - would have done the same.

I recall this fight from the pics you posted yesterday. The Raider camp under the power lines west of Sanctuary. Killing them is pretty much a rite of passage for all starting characters!

I wonder what those bottle caps are for? Maybe the Raiders were very concerned about being friendly to the environment, and were saving them to deposit them at a recycling center? wink.gif

Yes indeed, why are they carrying bottle caps? Let's just discard those. They can't possibly have any value right? laugh.gif

My gosh, Vinnie's gonna be so pissed once he learns what caps are used for. blink.gif

@SubRosa - Logan never ventured west of Sanctuary so I discovered this camp for the first time in Vinnie's game. Apparently there's a raider shack somewhere in the vicinity but we missed it. We found some lone trader living in a makeshift shack way to the east.

@Renee - fortunately he hasn't found so many bottle caps up until now, so when he found out what caps are for, he wasn't too angry. Just angry.

---

“Stop now, you thief! Stop now and give back what you stole from us!”



Blake Abernathy and his whole family would have still been alive if Blake hadn’t said these words aloud. Vinnie “Slugger” Sinistra thought that he’ll get away with taking some of their stuff from inside the farm, but with these words heard behind, the Abernathys sentenced themselves to death.

He came across their farm about an hour ago and Blake disliked him from the start. Not because Vinnie called his farm “pathetic”, but something in the man’s eyes made Blake hope, that he’ll leave soon and never return. He didn’t understand why the guy kept asking his daughter about bottle caps, but Lucy, friendly as always, was patiently explaining him that the paper money, which Vinnie showed her, didn’t play any important role anymore, now it was bottle caps, that counted as the main currency.

Afterwards Vinnie went inside the farm and stayed there for a while. Blake was getting suspicious about what he’s doing inside but he decided not to check on him, else his wife and daughter would once again scold him of being too distrustful of strangers. But when he saw the stranger coming out and noticed some of their family belongings stuffed inside his bag, Blake went nuts.



“Should have stayed there and picked your ‘tato, idiota!” A few minutes later only three beings were left alive on the Abernathy farm – the brahmin, the cat and Vinnie “Slugger” Sinistra.

Aw. sad.gif Well at least the animals didn't get hurt.

I wonder if this is the same farm Victoria (Khajiit's character from two summers ago) stopped at. Anyway, looking forward to more from the Slugger.

There is a Raider and his dog in a small shack directly north of Sanctuary. If you go across the little footbridge that you followed to get to the Vault in the opening of the game, turn right at the river instead of going left to the Vault. Follow the river east, and you will come across some bloatflies, then the raider in the shack. Later there is a pack of dogs, and beyond that a scavenger practicing their shooting on some bottles. Finally there is a nest of Mirelurks right before the junkyard with the Sentry Bot.

It would be cool if the cat was possessed by the angry ghosts of the Abernathys, turned into a giant supernatural horror beast, and hunted Vinnie down through the Commonwealth...

@Renee - I think Victoria also stopped at Abernathys, yes.

@SubRosa - looks like I've still got lots of exploring to do north of Sanctuary.

Possessed cat? Maybe in some TES game. whitewizardsmile.gif

“You talk like a jerk but you clearly know what you’re doing. You did a great job clearing out those raiders. And even the deathclaw! I’m glad we’re on the same side.”

Saying these words, Preston Garvey was hoping that he was right and that Vinnie, the man who just cleared Concord of hostiles while wielding a minigun and wearing power armor, won’t spin the minigun and empty it out of its few remaining bullets right into him.

“I’m on my own side.” Vinnie wanted to add the word “negro” at the end of the sentence but changed his mind. Instead he put the minigun down and stepped out of power armor.

“If you ever change your mind, we could use someone like you…someone who can get things done. Seek me out in Sanctuary, if you…as I said – if you change your mind. Bye.”

“Hasta luego!” Vinnie lit a cigarette and watched Minutemen leave the Museum of Freedom. He was getting better and better in surviving in the post-apocalyptic world. He had some more encounters with raiders outside Concord and ran into a nasty pack of mole rats, but nothing could compare to the showdown in Concord. The irradiated lizard would be tough to bring down if not for the minigun, though. The only real problems Vinnie had, were his slow reflexes and his big belly. It was hard to turn around quickly, especially if animals were biting him from every possible angle, and his belly was often in the way. But Vinnie knew that’s going to remain a problem, because he liked to eat, eat a lot. And drink too. Not to mention how much he liked to smoke. Maybe many starve in the wasteland, but Vinnie already gained a few pounds since unfreezing. He dropped the burnt out cigarette and lit another one.

Only Vinnie could gain weight after an apocalypse! Preston and gang were lucky to escape from an encounter with him alive. That does not seem to happen much. At least he has not eaten any people. Yet...

He talks like a crime boss, that's for sure. In my mind, he sounds like a Cuban version of The Godfather (raspy voice).

Wonder what that liazard is supposed to be? Oh wait...

That would be Tony Montana (Scarface).

@SubRosa - Vinnie likes to eat good, so he's not into cannibalism. Preston and his gang didn't give him a reason to be killed, so he didn't kill them. Who says Vinnie's not a man of reasons?

@Renee - Vinnie reminds me of some Mexican actor, but I can't recall his name now. He usually plays in action movies, always plays a villain, and one of his eyes is deformed. I'll remember his name sooner or later.

---

Before the war it took years for Vinnie to reach the top and become the leader of the Cuban criminal underground, but it looks like that after the war, things work differently. Having survived deadly traps of the Gauntlet, Vinnie "Slugger" Sinistra killed Overboss Colter, the leader of Nuka-World raiders, in a duel, and was immediately proclaimed as the new Overboss.

Raiders of Nuka-World had mixed feelings about their new leader. Some of them thought that he's too old for such a position, others thought that he's not appropriate, because he lacks a proper raider attitude. All of them agreed, however, that his outfit is the funniest thing on him - who walks around the wastes wearing a white shart and striped pants? Nonetheless, they were so displeased with Colter, that they were willing to give the new Overboss a chance.

Vinnie Sinistra himself had mixed feelings about his new role. These raiders weren't of the same type as his goons before the war, and some of them, especially the Disciples, were outright brutal. He knew it won't be easy to lead this bunch of wild wolves, and was very well aware, that despite being proclaimed the Overboss, he must in fact prove his worth to raiders. He couldn't leave the place, because the only exit from the Commonwealth was controled by raiders, so Vinnie was in fact trapped in Nuka-World. He knew that if he won't be able to give raiders what they want, he'll end up like Colter, so he better be good at what he does.
