Seriously, when we "met" in 2012 Lopov, I think your record was somewhere between 40 to 80 hours, for Falador's game. I know 300 is just a number,but it is rather nice to have a few who have been around for awhile, and you have some history with them. I need to have a look at how long Cho's been around. He was my first Fallout character, who I rolled in summer of 2013.


Yes, in the past most of my characters would last between 50-80 hours. I'd rarely return to characters once I'd get bored of them. Blondie is an exception to this. Considering that I plan to include some more mods in her game in coming years, she's going to be around for a long time. I'm still not sure, who would be my 2nd longest-lasting character but it has to be someone that's no longer active, like Lucius, Falador, maybe even Haryon.

From those that are still alive and active, I think that either Ally "Gator" from FO3 or Souissi from Skyrim are the longest-lasting, though I'd need to check exact numbers to be sure.

In the end it's quality that matters, not quantity, I'd say.

Thanks, Acadian, glad you remember her. Yeah, I agree, blondes are special.

Blondie, Derrick and Guts are still following clues from chests to find more chests. It all began with a message that Blondie's PipBoy picked up one day, and in it promises of great riches were said to be given to one that can find chests based on clues given by whoever placed those chests and wrote the clues. No map-markers exist for finding these chests, so one has to be really at home in the Mojave to know where to look. Fortunately, Blondie is more than familiar in the Mojave, and was for the time being able to immediately recognize places, based on clues. In the chest there there's always a note with clues on how to find the next chest, and a corresponding key.

Of course Blondie assumes that this whole story of great riches is a hoax, and that the final purpose of whoever is behind it all, is something else, but Derrick hopes that they'll find some gold in the end. According to current hints, the next chest is located in the Crescent Canyon, so that's where B, D & G are heading. Maybe they'll meet Sammy the ghoul there.

In other words, this mod was made for Lopov, who knows the Mojave well.

That's pretty neat how it seems like all of this might be a hoax. Sammy the Ghoul looks like he's ready to do some disco dancing. wacko.gif

@Renee - indeed, the mod is meant for someone who knows the Mojave well.

I finished up the mod, BTW. I don't know if anyone here will ever try it out, but I'm going to include the story behind the chests in spoiler tags.



So in the end she didn't earn any gold, but she got some satisfaction. She doesn't need gold or caps anyway, she has plenty of them already. After the adventure was over, Blondie parted ways with Derrick and is now heading back to Novac together with the only companion that's always present at her side - Guts. I enjoyed my short trip to the Mojave but now it's time to move on.

Crazy! So that whole mod was a bunch of smoke and mirrors! It does sound like it kept Blondie busy for a short while, at least. How does that make you feel? And I guess Blondie might be rather pissed off, eh?

Linda Hand finally finished Come Fly With Me. Lol so everybody flew off into the sky, which surprised Linda (and me) because we thought there's no way those silly Buck Rogers-looking spaceships will get off the ground. They did though. And Linda got some added Reputation. bluewizardsmile.gif

She is Level 4 now. I added points into Sneak, Survival, Guns, and Speech. I chose the Educated perk for her. More skill points per level? OH heck yes.

Nice that she lent a hand to those ghouls. I bet they're rockin' now in the Far Beyond.

Blondie expected that the treasure hunt was a hoax. She's seen plenty of such tricks in her career of a bounty hunter, so hardly anything surprises her anymore.

As October is staring us in the face, plans to visit Point Lookout are in motion. Last year I was annoyingly underprepared for the hunting safari; no mines, very few nades, no minigun etc. This time I will be prepared accordingly.


Oh, yes. I will be prepared cool.gif

Absolutely you will be. Don't forget to bring plenty of Junk Food, Potato Crisps, and Nuka Cola to wash it down with.

Tuesday, 11.13.81, 12:06 AM -- Linda Hand arrives to her room in Novac, and reminds herself to check with Miss Crawford, the place's owner, in the morning. When does this 'busy season' usually start? Does she owe any caps for her stay so far?

Her room is freezing, and as she exchanges her leather armor for a dirty old dress, Linda can feel it. Time to turn that nuclear-powered AC down.

She takes a seat and has a beer. Beer is something of a new habit for her. Of all the liquor available in the room's fridge, for some reason having just that one beer after running around in the Mojave is what she really loves. Mmm... beer. Such a lovely way to relax.

Tomorrow is another day. Will it be another hot one? The days have been getting cooler, at least. Being a native of Oregon, she still wasn't quite used to Nevada's intense heat, but yesterday's high of just 75 felt lovely.*

------------------------

* I've been geeking out with the Old Farmer's Almanac website, using its data from 1981 to determine what the temps are in her game, in 2281. biggrin.gif So if it was 75 degrees in 1981 on this day, I like to think it's the same temp in 2281. And this determines what Linda will wear for the day. salute.gif Leather armor gets too warm, you see, so she only wears this at night.

I have now installed myself at Rivet City. Temporary of course, and I will soon board the steamboat and travel to Point Lookout. And as promised; I am prepared. Nades, mines, Fat Man and the Vulcan minigun are all with me.


This year I will have fun biggrin.gif biggrin.gif



(No food though wink.gif )

I have now landed at Point Lookout, aka Renee Country.


Roamed around Rivet City first as per yoush, visiting all major locations such as the church and the museum. After spending a night in my hotel room I then collected Gunny and we jumped over to the riverboat landing where I parked him and tasked him to guard the area.


Now I sit at top deck of the riverboat, overlooking the Lookout landing and boardwalk. Fun shallst begin next time biggrin.gif
