They got on to the mirkey train. "This thing was a prototype to a series of trains that could actually does not relie on fuel or fisson. It just uses a shaking object in order to make it go fast. We should be there in 5 hours.It was made to go across the contry. It would have bein great if not it was made a beta in 2077..." Dejan started it up.
"YEah" Bren said sitting on a bench, Jason was next to him Reading and Skyler was just lost in Thought
"Soi what exactly Arryo like?" Bren asks
Fniff1 23:22, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
"It's a place that your dreams would laugh at the idea of." Said Dejan, The train jerked forward.
Bren almost fell off his seat but JAson grabbed him
Jason: What wil lthey say when they see me?
Bren: good point, how about a man servent
Skyler: Either way they won't worry with dejan arorund
Fniff1 23:28, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
"Or the best gecko skinner in California,Isn't that right Eliz?" Said Dejan. Eliz Blushed. "How about the best gecko Hunter Dejan?" Said Eliz.
"Whats a Gecko?" Bren asks
Skyler began to sharpen his claws, the demon as he called it has been wiped of all blood so it was like a mirror, the claws could have killed any of them if he wanted to and they would be dead before the pain set in
184.108.40.206 00:01, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"A gecko is a mutant lizard in which you can skin. It's very pretty but deadly" Said Eliz.
Skyler: Sounds liek fun to hunt
Skyler holds up his claw to make a point
Bren: So what will we do when we make it to arryo?
Fniff1 00:16, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"Well,The vault dweller celebration is coming up, And I brought the jumpsuit. Also Skyler,THey are Really fun to hunt. Use bow and arrows,It's more fun and more fair." Said Dejan.
Skyler: The day you see me with those, Archaic weapons is the day when Death Claw fly
Bren just alughs as he takes the Suit and in the other car (it was empty) JAson helped him put it on, wel lthe top at least, the bottom was cut off then they came back
Bren: sounds like fun
Fniff1 00:29, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"You don't know the half of it. Only 4 hours now." Said dejan.
4 hours passed without any problem so now the ride has stopped
Bren: that was an uneventful ride
Jason: Glad it is over too, I am down to my last book, and to be honest it isn't a the best read (the book was a bible and a creature that was made of sceince, yeah that doesn't work well with hiom)
Fniff1 00:33, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
They walked outside.Bren already liked California.
Jason had Bren strappped to his back
Jason: So where to my good man?
Skyler: YEah, been bored for a while, I want some food, and maybe soem Tail
He grins a slightly lustful grin
Fniff1 00:40, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"Just over there." They walked a few minutes. Then they saw it. The thing that even their dreams would scoff at and lock the people who said in a mental hospital
Everyone was looking atJAson I mean it is not everyday when you see a hulking Green Hulk like creature in your neirborhood but they didn't attack him, for 2 reasons. 1 he wasn't attacking them, and 2 the kids found him to be like a gaint Teddy Gui (Teddy Bear get it?)
Jason:L CUte kids
Bren was walking with some Crutches, the terrain was flat so he could do that at least
Skyler was looking at some of the "Local Wildlife" AKA the women, some women found him cute but most found him to kinda creapy
Fniff1 00:53, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"Dejan went down on his stomach and smelt the grass. "ahh... Non radioactive..." Said Dejan.
"So any place to eat, I'm a bit hungry and I hope we could have some food that isn't radoactive, well at least the main course because if I have to have fried mole rat again, I am gonna go crazy" Bren says
Skyler: Eh, anything for me, maybe some raw meat would be nice
Bren looks aorund and some people encricle him and look at his leg, and his skin
Fniff1 00:59, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"Don't worry." Said Dejan. They went to a bar and Jason and Skyler had Gecko meat while Bren and Dejan both Had corn on the cob,Non mutated.
JAson was enjoy the stuff
Jason: This is good
A little girl walked to him she could have been 6 or 7
Girl: Uhh Mister?
Jason looks downa t her
Girl: What made you green
Jason just alughs
Jason: Young One, I was born this way, blessed with brains but cursed with my body, now run along
The girl runs off pretty happy
Bren: nice girl, this seems like a nice place
Skyler: Eh, better then some places, then again the Brothel around Austin was pretty good, course I couldn't get in, costs 5000 caps for an hour
Fniff1 01:06, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"If I wasn't born here,I would bein a mean person. This place raises you right. How's your corn,You can have something else if you want..." Said Dejan.
Bren sorta grimaces for some reason these days non radated food tasted pretty lousy (the ghoul blood)
"Not really as good as I thought, then again most non raddated food doesn't taste as good these days" Bren says
Skyler: Must be that ghoul blood in ya, I'm surprised you even survived that nuke with just minor rad mutation
Fniff1 01:13, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
"Ghoul blood? I have something that ghouls normally like instead of non radioactive food." He gave him some stanberry steak.(sorry g2g, see ya Sunday, oh and can we put this off till then, I don't want to miss athing, I hope I'm not sounding selfish)
SKyler: Sounds lieka good name to me, maybe it will catch on (LOL)
Bren began to eat the steak and he enjoyed pretty much like anyone else
Bren takes a bottle and takes a swig, but instead of the nuka cola he ordered he took the Beer from the guy next to him (he was at the front table at the front of the resturant) and he becomes Drunk (he doesn't drink)
"Heey, this tastes funny" Bren says with his cheeks becoming pink and he takes another Swig and he looks happy
Skyler: Someone looks happy
Skyler trys to smile but then he goes into a emotionless expression
Skyler's Thought: IT is so hard to get emotions right, I barely even know how to socilize....I always thought guys like Girls....people can be weird
Fniff1 10:14, 5 April 2009 (UTC)(Might be going for a walk.)
"Want to go to the hotel? I think we should book in" Said Dejan.
Brengarrett 15:31, 5 April 2009 (UTC) (having cpmutor problems, won't be on after this post., sorry guys)
Bren is becoming Drunk and is drinking more beer
"...and so I tell the Raider, that izz Momma is so ugly, when she goezz to a strip club they pay her to keep clothes on" He says to this another guy
Fniff1 15:38, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"OK,I probably will feel alienated if he's drunk,So I better get drunk fast!" Dejan turned to the Bartender. "12 bottles of liquor,And fast!" Dejan Said.
--Cerebral plague 15:56, 5 April 2009 (UTC)(Twelve bottles of liqour? Man, that's not very smart, even on Dejans standards, anyway eneter the velvet fist, crime fighting hero! Also mentally insane.)
The Velvet Fist was fighting crime in the city of arroyo! As he ran through the rooftops, jumping from building to building, chasing the thief that took change off the sidewalk! "That money belongs to whoever dropped it you coward! Fight me like in the comic book you villainous fiend!" He was gaining on the person whoever he was, shouting something along the lines of "Your f'cking insane man!" The velvet fist, jumped down from the rooftops, landing on the dastardly villain. "Crime doesn't pay sir!" As he took the bottle cap, and went back to the rooftops, disappearing into the night. Or falling of a rooftop, whatever you want to call it.
Daniel Stryker watched in slight amusement as Bren and some fool got wasted on the far side of the room. And there was some freak next to them. The man was huge, some kind of freak-mutant with the face of a man. Stryker grumbled. He missed Vegas and it's Balma, and Baltimore and its cage fights. New Arroyo was depressingly boring. No random murders, no explosions. Only that Velvet Fist fella, hopping around like a frog on psycho. It was funny watching him drop like a fly when he ran out of rooftops.
Fniff1 16:11, 5 April 2009 (UTC)http://bioshockfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Bioshock_Fanon_Wiki Made it myself.
Dejan walked out and looked outside. He saw the fist. "Dude,What The F*ck?!?" Dejan exclaimed.
--Cerebral plague 16:50, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
The Velvet Avengergot up to his feet hastily. "No worries Dejan, the Velvet Avenger is here is perfectly fine! Just a flesh wound, what's a broken ankle and every other bone in my body for Justice!" Realizing his mistake saying Dejans name, the Velvet Avenger quickly tried to fix it! "Is that your name Dejan? Why, using my superior intellect, I was able to deduct without even you saying it! Now, up, up and away! He cried out those last words before climbing up the roof, going off into the night, without falling off a roof this time!
Fniff1 16:55, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan put his head on his hands. "Ow..I had about 10 hard liquors and there is two left. I guess that you would want them? Also,Eliz is having a affair with my boss,So the war we had to please her is over,OK?" Said Dejan.
--Cerebral plague 16:59, 5 April 2009 (UTC)(What the hell are you talking about Dejan? He already fled off into the night?)
Fniff1 17:01, 5 April 2009 (UTC)(Dejan is wasted,So he would be talking to himself.)
"Well, at least I'm embarrassed for the poor fool." Stryker said to Dejan. "I reckon he's either had one too many or one too few."
Stryker stepped up beside Dejan and nodded to him, before taking another swig of his beer. Quickly followed by another slug of his whiskey. And a mouthful of bourbon. Dejan watched as Strker repeated the cycle again, amazed that the man was standing at all, never mind standing perfectly straight.
"What? Never seen an alcoholic before?" Stryker grumbled. "I'm Daniel Stryker, met up with your friend Bren Tenkage in Baltimore. What happened to his leg, did someone finally get sick of him losing the rag with little to no reason?"
Fniff1 17:07, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"I won't tell ya,Unless you go gecko hunting with me." Dejan said.
"You, my boy, are trashed. Now going by the way you're staring into the middle distance, you should look around for the nearest rain barrel so you don't puke on something that can hit you for doing so." Stryker said, slapping Dejan on the back just to exascerbate (sp?) the situation. "And take your eyes off that girl over ther, she's only fourteen."
Stryker laughed as Dejan rapidly scanned the area for a female companion who didn't come with a prison sentence. Or brothers with knife scars.
"Gecko hunting is a dead sport. To me anyway, I prefer big game, Deathclaws and the like. Well, just Deathclaws really. Bren claims he can kill one with just one bullet. Saw him try. And fail. My Raging Bull here, that could blow a hole the size of a mutfruit in a Deathclaw. Recoil's a bitch though." Stryker said, indicating a ridiculously large revolver, next to a set of throwing knives, each one large enough for close combat. Dejan looked at Stryker. He smiled, but his eyes were the hollow eyes of a man that had seen and committed enough murders to make a Super Mutant recoil.
Fniff1 17:53, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Wait,Gecko hunting is dead? Well, I hunt with bow and arrows I spouse so.. But have you fought with fire geckos? I earned 500 gold pieces for the skin. Apparently it's flame resistant,And golden gecko skins are nice and I might give one to my girlfriend." Dejan said.
"Yup, nasty little pricks. Shot one from over a mile away, from downwind too. There's maybe five, six other people in the world that can make a shot like that." Stryker said. Technically, Gecko hunting was alive and kicking, but with what he'd been hearing about this Dejan fellow, he wanted to see how he'd fare against a Deathclaw Den Mother, or better yet, a Queen.
Stryker had a Deathclaw Queen's horns in his gear pack, to be pulled out on those occassions where people doubted his prowess. He'd killed her single-handedly too. Tracked her over a mountain for nearly a week, but finally got his chance when she stopped for a drink. He'd almost stopped himself from pulling the trigger, stunned by the sheer majesty of the gigantic beast in her territory. He'd kept her horns, teeth and mandible as a testament to her strength. He'd made a mint selling her hands and feet to tribals too. Of course, she'd nearly killed him too, and his chest bore the scars to prove it.
Fniff1 18:11, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Of course,I never use archery against other animals,Just Geckos." Said Dejan.
"Thats because shooting anything else with an arrow is suicide." Stryker said. Bows and goddamn arrows. This guy had a few screws missing, never mind loose. Not playing with a full deck. He was trying to play poker with Railpass cards.
Stryker leaned on the guardrail on the porch of the bar. He looked out through the darkness, watching the people to-ing and fro-ing about their business. Gecko hunting sounded like fun right about now.
"Get your bow son, we're going hunting!2 Stryker shouted at Dejan, then turned too ast and nearly fell over. A barmaid laughed at him. He gave her that look of his that made women blush and made men turn tail and walk. It had no effect on her. She was probably married. What a waste Stryker thought as he saw the ring on her finger.
Fniff1 18:27, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan ran to his parent's house.Yes Dejan had parents. He looked inside,His Mum was cooking some food. He ran in and said "Hi Mum! Where is my bow and arrows?" Said Dejan. "Huh?...Dejan! My Son!" Cried his mum.She ran over and hugged him. After about 1 minute he said"listen,Where is my bow?" . She looked at him. "In your room." She said. He ran over to his room ad grabbed the bow. He kissed his mum and ran back to the bar.
Stryker loaded his Raging Bull, and set up his loading racks, filling his pockets with them. Then he loaded up his .44 repeater, chambering a round. He slung it rakishly across his back and came charging down the stairs, scattering the men at the bottom as he crashed through them. I'm goin huntin! Gonna kill me somethin Stryker thought as he went.
He ran into Dejan in the door, literally. The combination of surprise and inebriation made them both collapse. Stryker sat up first, as Dejan struggled to find his feet. That boy would have one hell of a headache in the morning. And a backache after falling like that.
Fniff1 18:42, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Ow. I just met my mother." Said Dejan on the floor.
Mick Cross laughed as dejan who had known when he was a young man colide with a tough set man.He walked over and ofered dejan his hand "get up dejan i cant belive you crashed into this man" he pointed at stryker "who the hell are you"
Fniff1 18:47, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"I'm going Gecko hunting,Want to come?" Said Dejan grabbing his hand and getting up.
"I am Daniel Stryker. And I assume you're the young gentleman who killed that serial killer I was hunting." Stryker said, pointing right back at Coss. "And, young man, you can't join us until you're wasted!"
Stryker indicated that a bottle of whiskey should be brought over.
Fniff1 18:53, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"I know a way to get wasted fast! Bartender! give Mick a full cup of Arryo Homegrown Beer!!" Dejan said. The bartender rolled her eyes and made a very dark liquid.
Stryker shook his head. That crap was barely 12% volume. High, for a beer, but it didn't hit you the same way spirits did. He sat down, looking slightly disappointed that he wasn't going shooting right away. He ordered a row of shots, clearing them off in a blur of hand movement and staring people. He was going to be feeling all this in the morning. On the upside, a hangover meant hair of the dog.
He looked around for someone to armwrestle. He wanted to make a few coins before the hunting trip. Poor little Bren had passed out over a table, with his freak friend trying to make sure he didn't puke and choke on it.
Fniff1 19:05, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Eliz sat down opposed to Daniel and grabbed his hand very fast. She went into an arm-wrestling match
--Cerebral plague 19:12, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Leslie or Leach, A.K.A The Velvet Avenger had just gotten into his streets. No one knew he was the velvet avenger, due to it being a full body suit. Also, the material made his voice raspier, apparently people thought that he was a ghoul close to being a feral that went insane. He walked over to the bar, seeing his old pall Dejan. Of course, this was after Leach stopped being a nerd stuck in his basement, and started working out, trying to get into good shape for his crime fighting career. "Hey that you Dejan!"
The bitch was strong. Really strong. Stryker barely won. Barely. He flexed his fingers and hand out afterwards, the girl had a grip like a drowning man. As a spot prize, Stryker handed her the bottle of whiskey. Clearly, she didn't drink all that often, because she tried to look tough and down as much as she could. She spluttered and refused to take another mouthful. Stryker did nothing but laugh. Then she tried to polish off the bottle, but had to stop.
Stryker downed the last of it, and another row of shots. He gave her a sly wink as he put the bottle down. Or maybe not that sly as Dejan sat down opposite him to give an armwrestle. After the girl, Dejan was a breeze. Stryker slammed his hand. He wanted someone else to take up the challenge, he wanted a few coins, but clearly everyone was either too wise, or too chicken-shit to take him up on it. He sighed and gave Dejan a chance at round two, which he lost again.
Then they noticed the new guy.
Fniff1 19:17, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Hey,Les, You know Gonark?" Dejan said.
Mick laughed as he saw stryker easily beat the girl in a arm wrestle "hey barman have you got any balma only a small glass mind you" when the barman shook his head "never mind ive got my own supply just the glasses then" he caught the glass's as they slid across the bar he pured a measur for himself and offered one to stryker and dejan "try that mind though it's strong"
he turned to see a man enter the room he was wearing a velvet cloke "who the hell are you"
--Cerebral plague 19:23, 5 April 2009 (UTC)(he's in his streets, not in the suit)
"Who's gonark man? Leslie sat at the table. "I thought you said you would call me Leach from now on. After the incident I had with trying to catch the gecko....."
Fniff1 19:26, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Damnit,I can never prononce him. You know,The Barbarian." Said Dejan.
"dejan you know this man"
Fniff1 19:28, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"He's friend I had for about 2 weeks before I fought him brutally." Said Dejan.
Stryker downed the Balma. He was used to the stuff. Tried making his own once, with bread and sugary water. The stuff was strong, very strong, but it hurt the backs of his eyes if he drank too much, so he decided to leave brewing to the professionals.
"Leech? Not something I'd want people calling me. My old friends call me Badger." Stryker said, indicating the grey streaks in his hair. "And the Barbarian's name is Grognak. My son use to read that, before my wife took him."
Mick laughed "badger and leech huh my own nicknames the killer cus i kill for a job"
Fniff1 19:33, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Actually,The fight is more interesting,Want to hear it?" Said Dejan.
--Cerebral plague 19:35, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Would you rather have Leach, or Leslie man? Grognak the Barbarian is a bunch of Comic books. Before I decided on stopping being a wimp, I used to read it. Believe I still have a stack of those comics in my basement. And I whipped your ass in that fight man. THe second you decided on it not being with long ranged gun's, you lost.
"Hey, if guns work why not use them. Violence doesn't solve anything unless you use it." Stryker said, swigging beer between words.
Fniff1 19:39, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Actually,If I remember it correctly, I remember you being rifle whipped by Dejan." Said Eliz. "Yeah,I think it happened like that too.." Said The Bar keep.
"so you grow up dejan.the last time i saw you was when i was doing my tour of duty in the NCR army"
Fniff1 19:44, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"That was the time I joined the NCR for,like,1 minute?" Said Dejan.
"Oh, come on Dejan, be nice. The sun was probably in his eyes." Stryker laughed.
Fniff1 19:49, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Well,The fight wasn't all fun and games. I was trying to dodge him with his power fist when I pulled the trigger." Said Dejan looking down.
--Cerebral plague 19:52, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"That's still bullshit !He rifle whipped me, he brought a gun to the fight! He cheated! Anyway, I still took out what, four of his teeth? Don't forget that I nearly put him into a coma. And Dejan, the second you left for the NCR I left town too.
"don't dis the NCR they do the best they can" he took a swig of balma and passed the can to lesslie "if your strong take a swig of that just not to mutch"
--Cerebral plague 19:59, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"If I remember correctly, I used to be able to take more Liquor then you man." Leach took a swig of the Balma, before putting it down, still angry about what happened.
Fniff1 20:02, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"If I remember correctly,Only Dejan tried to save me when I went into slavery. You didn't care. You just sat around as if nothing ever happened!!" shouted ELiz.
"we can't save everyone besides that group that captured you got eliminated by a regiment about 5 years ago"
--Cerebral plague 20:05, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"When you went into slavery I was still in a hospital Bed!" Shouted Leach. He was angry at this point, and felt like Eliz didn't realise that when Dejan shot him, he was in a hospital for four months.
Fniff1 20:08, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"I was in the pitt for 5 years,You only were in the bed for 4!" Said Eliz.
"Shut it both of you right eliz im sory that the ncr didn't help you but bad things happen and leach you wouldn't be alive if it wern't for me bringing you into the hospital"
--Cerebral plague 20:12, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"I know that, but yelling at me for being unable to help is crazy. And what happened there? When did you learn how to speak?"
"yeah when i was here before you were the village mute wasn't your latex crushed or something"
Fniff1 20:16, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Slavers crushed my lanyx after the fight.Also,I think your a d*ck thinking I was a mute just because I only spoke to Dejan." Said Eliz.
--Cerebral plague 20:26, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"If you only spoke to Dejan, how the hell could we know if you spoke or not!" Eliz didn't make much sense some time. Hell, she didn't half the time!
Stryker stood back, trying not to laugh at the argument going on right before his eyes. He scratched his chin, looking from Eliz to Dejan to Mick to Leecha and back. Man, I need a shave. Stryker thought. No, now was not the time for distractions.
He ran his hand along the grip of his Raging Bull. Looked like there'd be no hunting going on tonight. At least he wasn't carrying a bow like Dejan. That four-foot long recurve composite bow made him look like a complete deadbeat who read too much Grognak.
Fniff1 20:31, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"OK,I'm going Gecko hunting,And no-one is going to come with me,Or their head is going on the rack of a rich raider." Said Dejan and went off.
Stryker shook his head, walking away. If Dejan wanted to go hunting on his own, then so would Stryker. Screw Geckos, he was going after 'Claws.
He strode off into the night, watching people watching him leave. He headed for the hill country not far from Arroyo. He cleared the Deathclaw family out of there not too long ago, but after hearing of a series of Brahmin mutilations, he assumed another brood had moved in. Either that or there was a raider gang nearby he could collect a bounty on.
Fniff1 21:55, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan walked over to a gecko hill. He killed a few geckos and stopped for a while and thought.Then he saw something move. He lit up some very old matches and saw it was a deathclaw. He stood still, Took out his sniper rifle slowly and shot the paws off the Deathclaw. He shot it in the head. It was Dead. Then Several more deathclaws came along. Dejan screamed and ran over to the hill Daniel went over to a few minutes ago.
"Now you're speakin my language!" Stryker growled as he heard a Deathclaw come pounding over the hill.
He pulled his Raging Bull, spread his feet shoulder width, aimed and fired, catching the first Deathclaw in the face.He cocked the second chamber and fired again, hollowing out the throat of the second. He holstered the gargantuan revolver and pulled his repeater, blasting another 'Claw in the eyes. It howled as the bullet passed on into it's feeble brain. Then Stryker dived to the side, avoiding the next Deathclaw, but almost breaking his own neck as he overshot and landed in a ditch.
Stryker rolled over and fired his repeater into the neck of a Deathclaw bearing down on him. If that thing wasn't loaded with hollow-points, that animal'd be tearing his guts out. He sat up and clipped the one bearing down on Dejan. It went down, its lower jaw missing. As it stood up, Dejan jabbed an arrow through its eyes..
Stryker looked around. An entire clan. What the hell had that many 'Claws moving into an area that they'd justbeen cleared out of?
Fniff1 22:15, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"This looks like a clan..And every clan has a mother. We better get to a place they would be. Like maybe that weird cave me and Eliz went into." Said Dejan.
--Cerebral plague 22:18, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Leslie was walking toward where Dejan had run off to. He wanted to apologize for earlier, even though he thought he was right. He heard someone scream. It was feminine, and he had heard it before. It was Dejans scream! He ran up the hill, over to Dejan. He took out his Metal Blaster (Energy shotgun for those without the pit) and saw Dejan .He shot one in the face, and the spread took care of his right arm. Running closer, he shot another death claw. "Just like Old Times huh!" He screamed over the Death claws screeching. Why the hell were deathclaws still here? He thought the place was cleaned out.
A Deathclaw ploughed clean through the three of them and kept going. What the hell had these things running scared? First, they'd run into an area that they'd been cleared out of. They weren't stupid enough to run into a killing ground. And that one had just run clean through.
"Something has these things pissed." Stryker said. "No way anything I know has Deathclaws runnin scared. And I saw Daniel Kruger in action."
Mention of Kruger still made Stryker want to kill someone.
Fniff1 22:29, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Oh my god..Of course! Deathclaw pheromones!!It's attaching them! I used them once to kill a talon camp.They can't resist." Said Dejan.
"No, its not that, we'd be dead if it was. These things are running scared." Stryker mused. Again, moments of profundity in times of great intoxication.
He looked around. More 'Claws screaming in the distance. Just like Vault 13's security tapes. Stryker gulped. He'd seen Frank Horrigan in person once. The freak giant man-thing was the only thing that had scared Stryker in his whole life, he was also the only thing known to punch Deathclaws in half and send anything running like hell. Please no, not the Enclave. Not again. Stryker thought. He just didn't have it in him to fight those genocidalists again.
Bren was up and fighting Deathclaws, usings his crutch tro help him stay straight he he was fighting them hard, his iron foot was pretty much making them back off, and his combo wiht a rifle wasn't half bad
"Damn beer....gotta rember to look before of drink": Bren says to himself, stilla bit drunk and woosy but he is strong enough to fight back
(BTW didn't notice Stryker or Danial)
"What the hell is gonnin on?" Bren shouts as he punhes a deathclaw right in the nose, his shirt was torn and his chest was bleeding
Fniff1 22:41, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Deathclaws,And lots of them. A whole clan.Wait,Maybe they are going into a frenzy because their mother died?" Said Dejan.
"Again, if it was that, we'd be dead." Stryker shouted as a 'Claw floored Bren and kept running. Maybe it was just a migration. Shit, did these things have to migrate at all? Stryker hoped so. Otherwise there was something even more dangerous than Deathclaws moving in.
Fniff1 22:45, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Oh god, Hope it not one of those f*cking confusion days" Said Dejan.
(my god the comuptor is slow, brb, if not back in 10 minutes, then I left)
"Owww" Bren says as he looks up to See Stryker
"Stryke, long time no punch" Bren says "How have you been?" Bren asks forgeting the situation
Fniff1 22:51, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan looked up. It was a full moon. "Oh Sh*t. We have to get back to the town in less then 22 minutes.(btw no video, mum won't let me, sorry)
Bren got up and he is limping, his leg is walkable but it is tough, woundn't be long before he could walk unsupported, his will power is somthing
"Glad you took me...and I'm glad Eliz was gentle when she carried me, wonder how Jason is doing?"
Fniff1 22:54, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Come on,We have to go!!" Said Dejan.
Bren was going to wind up bleeding out through his stump if he tried to walk on that.
"Why are we needing to be back in 22 minutes?" Stryker asked, slurring his words a little.
"Hey Dejan, got any ideas for anyone who would be willing to Help?" Bren asked refering to the main goal of this trip
Flashback to the ride there
Bren: I may be a fun lover but we can't overlook the fact that the DC area is in trouble, we need to find allies
Dejan: I know Bren, I may fin some useful people, hopefully people who would be willing to help those unlike us
Jason: I agree, we the Mutated need suport
Bren: So I hope we could at elast gain maybe a trade route or some people to join us, the Claws need to be bigger if we want to make an impact on the US
Flash back End
While they walked Skyler noticed somthing by smell
Skyler: MEtal...and Deathclaw?
(refering to a deathclaw with a helmet on)
Some of the blood that dropped otu of Bren landed on the ground and radated clouds come out surprising Stryker
Fniff1 23:05, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Nothing scares the animals of the wasteland more then a full moon. The nice ones,Mole rats and Brahmin,Sh*t themselves. Deathclaws run in a frenzy until they start killing." Said Dejan. "Tonight is full moon."
"Its not that." Stryker said. Stupid tribal and his superstitions.
Stryker looked around, pulling out a cigar and lighting it. He liked the taste of cigars. Even though they pissed off everyone around him.
Fniff1 23:10, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"Then what are they doing? Going to the mall?" Said dejan.(fine but at elast the Enclave must be a threat right now?)
Bren clutches his chest and his slighty green glood covers his chest
"Damn deathclaw" Bren said
"Not Enclave either. They don't scare Deathclaws." Stryker said.
He lit a cigar, ignoring the look on Dejan's face. Then he offered Dejan one.
Fniff1 23:17, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Suddenly a deathclaw shoved a claw through Dejan's stomach. He fell down and the deathclaws went off.
"DEJAN!" Bren shouts and he glares at the running Deathclaw and at one moment he fires at it's legs then pullso ut a knife
"Be right back" Bren says with much anger in his voice as he walks to the limping Deathclaw, Bren then stabs it in the lung and lets it go
"Die slowly you monster" Bren shouts it it and it trys hard to run as Bren looks at it with much malice
Fniff1 23:24, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan slowly crawls over to his bag. He pulls out a 44. and loads it. "these Deathclaws are going to get some extra special treatment." He says.
"Skyler get Dejan up, help him up, we need to get back" Bren said as he arms his rifle
"Get out of here, Stryker and Me will cover you, thanks to his Blood the Deathclaws will be looking for him"
Skyler does as Told and they begin to Run of
"So Stryker, ready to fight with a Half Ghoul?" Bren asks
"Fuck being a half Ghoul, you're an idiot. That Claw could have killed you. They're animals, they won't lie there pitying themselves." Stryker said in a clipped military tone. He'd have to box Bren around the ears next time he did something that stupid.
Fniff1 23:33, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"F*CK YOU!!!" Dejan shouted in the distance. It was just a general comment on Stryker's personality.
"Put the temper away Dejan, I could break you in half on your best day, and this is one of your worst." Stryker said.
Bren fires a shot and he bullet wizzed past Stryker's head and before he could say a word a Deathclaw falls
"Next time pay attention" Bren says, he was serious right now
"As for me being half Ghoul, at least I'm strong enough to stay up, I survived my foot being ripped off, and the radation of a nuke...I have been blesseD" Bren says as he fires at 2 more deathclaws, hiting them in the head
Will Hanes saw it. Up ahead he could see a few people and maybe a deathclaw. He ran up and started firing at it hoping to kill it. The deathclaw was hit once and then again. He could see it crumple. There were people ahead. He could make out one or two injured. He ran over. He could see another deathclaw coming. He didn't have time to properly greet them. He started to unload the MF cells in his plasma rifle at the Deathclaw hoping to kill it.
Stryker finished the Deathclaw off with a well placed S&W 500 to the face. He whirled the massive Raging Bull in his hand before holstering it. He turned to the newcomer.
"Who the hell are you?" Stryker said.
"Pardon my friend here, he has yet to undertsnad the ways of talking nice" Bren says grinning as some blood falls out of his wounds and the blood once again creates a cloud of radation that the new guy felt
"Me, I am Will Hanes. I am from the Freedoom Fighters of Maryland. I am in search of some people." Will looked at the people in front of him. They looked weak. "Do you folks happen to know where I can find the Claws.?"
"Bren Tenkage, leader of the Claws, Half Ghoul and all strong" Bren says holding out his hand to shake his hand
"Me aside, you're looking at em." Stryker said. Someone looking for the Claws. This guy was probably some Crusade assassin, and Stryker didn't want one of those trying to ump him in his sleep.
Stryker reloaded his Raging Bull and offered Hanes a cigar.
"Nice to meet you." Will said as he shook the mans dirty hand.
"Our scouts say we have the same ideas as you do. Freedom for all. We also think the crusade should be destroyed. We could use your help all the more in our quest for freedom.Right now I am wondering what you guys are doing out here?"
--Cerebral plague 23:54, 5 April 2009 (UTC)(Fixed up the Velvet avenger thing, made new page)
Leslie "Leach" Jones was shooting the last Death claws, trying to reach where ever Dejan was. He saw a man carrying him, running towards Arroyo. He started running towards him, seeing what's wrong. He shot probably the last one in the area and watched as it plummeted down to the ground. He shot it again to be sure, and started running again.
"Word of the public is they pulled a runner when the going got too tough." Stryker said. He wasn't going to lie to this guy, he seemed like a good fella, he didn't deserve the bullshit the Claws would feed him about their vaulted morals.
(sorry guys g2g, see ya)
"We needd help, in the DC area the Crusade is fighting us, we already lost a lot of wastelanders, it is also to relax....but we need help from any source" Bren said sitting down
"So the Freedom Fighters, nice name" Bren says grinning
"As for what stryker said, yeah it is true, I'm a bit of a random guy" Bren said
"Thats damn right they need help." Stryker said. "If word of the people is to be believed."
Stryker looked around, no more Deathclaws, but there was that Leach guy running towards them. What the hell was up with that fella, he ran like he had no leg bones. A little bit of his inner nerd shining through.
"We'd be glad to help. If it means getting rid of the Crusade. I'll need to get back to Fort Freedom so we can deploy some troops. You can use them how ever you'd like." Will knew that deploying troops to this group could be risky. But getting rid of the Crusade was too tempting.
--Cerebral plague 01:30, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"I ain't never heard of the Claws before. I suppose Dejan is in the group with Eliz?" (Going offline too)
Mick had been folowing stryker when the new guy arived.He sat quietly through there conversastion when he heared the mention of the crusade "what the hell are the crusade!"
"Ok Send soem Troops to the DC area, there they should head to the Super Duper Mart near Megaton, when told who sent them, Bren did. As for identifaction" Bren pulls out one of his signiture smokes grenades
"This will do" Bren says handing it to them
"glad to have some allies in our fight to help those in need" Bren said, happy he found more help
He began to walk back to Arryo to see how Dejan is doing unaware that Enclave are about to come and fight them
"Ok. I'm going to need to get back to Fort Freedom now." Will stood up ready to leave.
"They should be there in about 2 days."
Stryker sniggered. Bren was going hell for leather with this DC War of his. He looke over at the big fella carrying Dejan, and then at that Leach guy. He still couldn't take a nickname like that seriously.
"Well, I reckon its time for us to get back to that bar and drink ourselves into an even deeper stupor. After we go to that hospital and lift some painkillers." Stryker said. None of them seemed to be in a drinking mood. Tossers.
Fniff1 15:18, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"I'm not drinking. I have to stay up all night now to avoid a hangover. Beer makes me sleepy." Said Dejan. "Bren,Have you met my mother?" Dejan asked.
(What do you mean I;'m going to hell? BTW the Superduper Mart signal and the three Dogs signal is also able to make it across the US)
"Fraid not Dejan, how you feeling?" Bren asks
Stryker shrugged. If they didn't want to go get wasted, then so be it. He'd hang on to see how this Dejan fella got on, then he'd run around trying to find out what had the Deathclaws spooked.
(*sighs* right, got it dude. sorry for bein a pain)
Bren took out a nuka cola and drank it
"so who are you?" Bren asks Leech
Fniff1 17:21, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"He's a guy I shot in the head,Go on les,Tell him about it." Said Dejan.
"don't you dare leach me and stryker have hered it allready.What the hell hapend to make the deathclaws spook"(mind if I mix the Enclave into this?)
Bren thougt for a moment then he came up with an idea
- "What if the enclave are using the Deathclaw, they did it in the DC area, if they can control the mother Claws, then the Kin would listen without the use of a helmmet" Bren said
Fniff1 17:46, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"Wait...That would mean...Arryo is going to be under attack by the enclave." Said Dejan.
"it cant happen they wouldn't be stupid enogth to atack an NCR state they don't have the numbers"
Fniff1 17:52, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"I once watched a few deathclaws go to 38 in 1 week. All it takes is a mother and no disturbance,Like in the mountains around arryo." Said Dejan.
An excellently timed Vertibird soared overhead, flying in the direction of Arroyo. It was hardly difficult to deduce that a single Vertibird couldn't hold an entire attack force, so the logical conclusion was that this was merely a scouting craft.
"doesn't matter if arryo is atacked by a deathclaw invasion it wouldn't take a genius to work out that the enclave were behind it" he looked up as a vertibird flew over "on the other hand it never hurts to be carefull so if we get in the elder we should inform the ncr goverment"
Fniff1 18:05, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"Don't you remember the Butindi case? The president after Tandi claimed the Enclave was planing an attack on every NCR state when it turned out he was just insane!" Said Dejan.
"fine fine il use some off my influence to get the guard increased"
Fniff1 18:10, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"Oh no....What about the other towns? Redding has mines to hide in,NCR has...OK they are safe,But what about everybody else?" Said Dejan.
"every town in the NCR is safe outside the NCR who gives a shit except vegas and maxom because we need there tech but there safe anyway they belong to the BOS"
"We need to find the leader of Arryo and have him warn the others, have them find any abkle body man to help us, this is gonna eba hell of a fight" Bren said loading his rifle and he began running to Arryo
Fniff1 18:26, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"Actually,Isn't that a bit....Enclave like?" He asked Mick.
Bren ran as fast as he could, his leg was runable now but it still stung to move, but he couldn't feel the pain, he was ready to defend his friend's home
"no enclave like is wanting to kill all non pure hummans what i am is Pro-NCR anyway you can't demand to speek to the chosen one but i should if im lucky be able to speak to him tonight in the guard review"
Fniff1 18:34, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"Hey,I'm the one for the idea of you not getting set on fire by putting Bits of fire gecko skin into your armor! I even presented the idea to his NCR officer and he told him about it! He loved the idea!" said Dejan.
Bren was brought back by Skyler who tied him up
Skyler: There we go, got him like you said Dejan
(Dejan wanted Bren to understand that they do things abit differently in Arryo so he sent Skyler to Retreive him)
"come on if were lucky the chosen one might see us tonight"
Fniff1 18:45, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"OK then,se you bren." Said dejan and ran off with Mick, Leaving Bren and Skyler behind.
"HEY LETY ME GO YOU BASTARD" Brens hotu to skyler and Skyler looks at Dejan wondering what to do next
Fniff1 18:49, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"What's your gut feeling!?!" SHouted Dejan. "And Don't Kill him!"
Skyler: I will take him to the Inn, I already have a room their, its room B12, tell us what your leader says while I keep Bren with me
Skyler picks up Bren with on hand and carries him to Arryo
Bren sighs and enjoys the ride while Dejan goes to his Leader
"dejan slow down and let me do the talking!" they ran into the council chamber "sory im late sir" the elder stood up "order!" the room fell silent "the 1st meating of the anti-enclave council is in session i would welcome surgestions to how we deal with the enclave" dejan raised his hand "go ahead young man"
Dominic Martinez was posted on guard duty at the main gates of Arroyo, and was quite surprised to see a strangely tall, muscular man carrying somebody who was tied up with one hand. This couldn't be good. Filled with dread, Dom lifted his FN FAL and pointed it in Skyler's general direction, as did the other soldier standing guard with him. "Hold it. What are you doing with that man?" Dom asked, trying to put on an authoritative tone in order to intimidate the man. It didn't work.
Skyler does a smile (Read ina book that a good smile helps)
Skyler: Don't worry, our Friend Dejan doesn't wnat Bren here to interfer with talking to the Leader here, sorry but he woulnd't listen to me
Bren: yeah don't worry we are good people
Bren seems a tad annoyed
Skyler:Don't worry about me, if I wanted to kill you you would be dead by now
Dom frowned at this, but lowered his rifle. "No," The other soldier on duty said to Skyler, "If you wanted to kill us, you'd be the dead guy." He said with a smug grin. Skyler responded by giving a glare that could send a small animal into cardiac arrest, which understandably terrified the poor gate guard. Dom gestured for Skyler to continue on into the town, before moving over to comfort his frightened friend.
Fniff1 19:09, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan goes next. "Hey I want to go....Dom?" Say dejan.
Skyler and Bren ehad to the Inn where Skyler laid Bren on a Bed, Jason was in the Room reading aComic book (the Little girl found him and gave it to him)
SKyler: Enjoy the reading Jason?
Jason looks up
Jason: This makes no sense
Bren: Waht doesn't?
Jason holds up the cover of the comic which is the Adventures of the Achronodude
Bren: Yeah makes snese to me, if a guy could get powers from Radaded animals, then all of us should be flying
This guy knew his name? Dom turned his attention away from his colleague, who was feeling a bit better now, and peered at the man in front of him, trying to recall his features. Then realisation hit him. "Woah! It's you! Dejan! I haven't seen you since I was, like, sixteen!" Dom said happily, pulling off his helmet and slapping Dejan on the shoulder. "Hey, man, catch me when I'm off-duty, I'll buy ya a beer. I think we've got a lot to catch up on."
"never mind" he held up his hand the elder nodded "thank you sir may i sugest that we reinforce the gate guard and ask for reinforcements" the elder nodded "it will be done Council ajorned" mick nodded to dejan and dom "well looks like we got the reinforcements we need"
"Reinforcements? Two guys with guns are enough to take down any travellers who try and cause trouble, even Raiders or marauding Deathclaws. Why do we need more?" Dom asked Mick, sounding quite worried and concerned. His fellow gate guard had apparently gotten over Skyler's little glare and was looking at Mick expectantly. Dom had a really bad feeling about this...
Fniff1 19:23, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"The Enclave are coming,And they are going to either kill us or experiment on us." said Dejan.
Dom suddenly felt extremely dizzy. He almost fell over, but Dejan managed to grab him and keep him standing. "The Enclave? Oh my god, I... I thought the Elder... they said he killed them all forty years ago!" Dom shouted, his tone sporadic and panicky. He started sweating and hyperventilating as he recalled the stories he'd heard about them when he was youner. Men in metal with weapons that could turn men to ash in a single shot. Then his training caught up with him, and he managed to calm down. He put his helmet back on, then took hold of his rifle, gripping it tightly for reassurance. "R-right. How many of them are coming? And when?"
"a lot early reports from the north say over 2 regiments.The reinforcements i talked about is around 5 brigades comming from the south more will come once we have a treaty with the brotherhood"
Fniff1 19:36, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
"Also,We probably need a lot of the NCR miltary. We die,The wasteland can't find clean water or wood." Said Dejan.
--Cerebral plague 19:37, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Leach was walking towards Bren's room and knocked on the door. "Bren, I want to tell you what happened between me and Dejan". He looked over and saw the super mutants comic book, remembering it from his olden days.
Dom nodded, slightly reassured. They were going to win this, he told himself. They were going to be alright. Arroyo wouldn't fall and the New California Republic would stand strong against all hardships... wait, wasn't that last thing on a poster around town? He gulped as he looked up at the sky, squinting slightly, until he could see a small shape, little more than a black dot, which appeared to be flying around the city in perfect circles. He suddenly got the gut feeling he was being watched as he noticed it. "That's... that's not a regular bird, is it?"
"nope that is a V-bird saw few back home in vegas we didn't have to wory about them as we had a load of turrets but here if that thing atacks now were screwed."
Fniff1 19:53, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
The vetibird fired.
--Cerebral plague 19:55, 6 April 2009 (UTC)(Fniff, if the vertibird fired by itself, its suicide. Also, it would drop mini nukes, fucking up half the town.)
Fniff1 19:58, 6 April 2009 (UTC)(Who says that they fire mini nukes? And also,The enclave would probably swoop in)
"holy crap!.get the people into there homes" the bird atacked again.Mick nelt down on one knee and began to pray "lord forgive us for desicrating your world but please help us now" he sighed.Suddenly there was a burst of light in the sky and multiple rockets hit the V-Bird."hell yeah how do ya like that asehole" a NCR regiment over 100 strong came over the hills
Fniff1 20:02, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
The enclave waited for this moment. The vetibird's dropped into the town.
--Cerebral plague 20:03, 6 April 2009 (UTC)(All the birds on the east have nukes, I'd imagine the ones on the west would be even more well equipped)
In the lower levels of the Enclave base known as Navarro, a radio crackled to life. "Target is open for attack at present, but judging by unusual activity and audio sweeps, they're becoming suspicious of an attack. May have reinforcements by the time we mobilise an assault." Colonel Alucard Vasquez nodded to himself and picked up the small talker attached to the radio by a cable, speaking into it. "Good work, Tango-4. Commence bombing runs. Reinforcements are en route." He said. There was a pause, followed by an acknowledgement, and then the channel was closed. The colonel turned to his subordinate, who stood to attention. "I want eight Verti-Assault teams prepped and dispatched to target area immediately. Terminate all armed resistance and genetic non-compliants, and detain and transport civilians."
"holy fucking jesus the enclave are here.Dom get to the regiment on the hill tell to join the battle,Dejan get a heavy weapon and fire it from the walls,me im going to protect the elder"
Fniff1 20:13, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan put a machine gun up and fired at the enclave. Then he heard a bomb whisleing. The he was flying though the air and into the hills. The walls were bombed.
Dom nodded and ran over to the regiment, who in turn hurried to meet him. He snapped into a smart salute and identified himself. "Corporal Martinez, Arroyo Guard regiment, sir!" He barked. Dom then gave a quick status report to the commanding officer, who asked for Dom's suggestions. "Have your RPG-carrying soldiers fan out along the hills and keep an eye out for more... uh, V-birds. The rest of you need to come with me and reinforce the town. Ground troops can't be far off."
"Looks like they're establishing anti-air posts around the perimeter of the town. We're out of range at the moment, but if we get any closer we're toast. What shall we do, Master Sergeant?" A vertibird pilot asked his superior. Carl Fielding grimaced, then responded. "Touch down here, and give the order for Alpha, Beta and Gamma birds to land as well. We'll proceed on foot. Tell the rest to gain altitude and try and continue, then touch down in the centre of the town." He ordered. "Yes, sir." Came the immediate response, and Verti-Assault Team Delta began lowering to the ground. The team checked their weapons and ran a quick diagnostic on their armour, before hopping out of the bird and getting to work.
Mick reached the elders room "sir you must come with me there sending in ground troops" the elder walked over to his cabinet "no" mick looked surprised "sir?" the elder pulled on a set of power armor and took a gause rifle out of the draw."I will me the enclave on the field of battle and show them that age is no boundry for greatness they will not take my home from me again" mick nodded "very well sir we should meet up with the reinforcements at the walls"
Mick ran out of the room with the elder following as they reached the wall he called out to Dom "get the men ready and charge when i say so" dom nodded "Charge" the NCR troups ran out of the walls
Skyler unties Bren as he heard the bombs
Bren: Jason time to fight
Jason holds the argo (his super Sledge) and Skyler arms his Metal Guantlet
Bren: Time to fight
They run out and they see Enclave Soliders fireing at some people so Bren tosses a Smoke Grenade and it covers them
Bren: Skyler now
Skyler runs int othe Smoke and we hear the screams of Enclave soliders being cut up
--Cerebral plague 20:46, 6 April 2009 (UTC)(No vegas NEVER. You can't take control of the first games protaginist. I don't care what you say, just no.)

A vertibird dropped several mininukes as it swooped down over the charging NCR soldiers, thinning out their numbers before they met the Enclave troops in the field. Fielding fired his M72 Gauss Rifle five times, bringing down four soldiers (having fired twice at a Ghoul soldier; bastard deserved it). The rest of his squad, and the other three squads were tearing through the defending infantry with superior technology and tactics. Bullets were pinging off their armour - energy blasts and magnetically repelled slugs were punching through the NCR's. Eventually, an order to fall back to town was given among the NCR soldiers, and the Enclave continued to advance. "Degenerate morons!" One of the Enclave troops yelled. Fielding smirked. Fish in a barrel, he thought.
Frustrated at the ineffectiveness of his FN FAL, Dom pulled out his pistol and fired four times at an Enclave soldier's head as while he ran, which brought his armoured form crashing to the ground. "Yes!" He shouted to nobody in particular. The 14mm armour-piercing rounds were doing their job, at least. He turned away and broke off into a sprint towards the gates alongside the rest of the NCR's soldiers. Where were those other four batallions?
Jason began to send Soilder flying impressing some of the people in Arryo (wouldn't you be if you saw a huge guy sending people vlying like Bowling Pins?)
Bren fired hiss shots but He gets Caught from behind and knocked out andd ragged out of battle (Don't forget the Enclave want him for questioning and they saw him)
"fucking hell there's to many of them" on the hills black specks were apearing one of the troups asked who they were "our reinforcements" the sight of 100's of NCR troups swarming down the hill was magnificant.
Fielding let out a triumphant laugh as the Enclave squads finished off the batallion, with only a few of them managing to pull back inside the town. "Rico, radio Colonel Vasquez. Tell him phase one of the operation is complete. We're commencing street sweep and cleanup." He ordered his squad's technician. "Uh, sir?" Rico responded. He really didn't sound very confident. "What is it?" Fielding asked, suddenly concerned. What could have possibly went wrong at this stage? His internal question was answered as Rico tapped him on the shoulder and gestured to the hillside, which was swarming with the New California Republic's finest. "... Like I was saying, get on that radio! We need reinforcements, at least six more Bird Teams! Now!"
Bren was taken tothe area Where Fielding his
Solider: Sir, we found someone you may want to see
(Jason and SKyler met up with Dejan)
--Cerebral plague 21:17, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Leslie was shooting up the resident Enclave with his Metal Blaster. He was edging forward, helping the NCR. They were doing quite well, until they were held back at their current position. They were taking cover, trying to fight back the Advancing Enclave forces. "Retreat!" The enclave forces ran away, but he was certain they were to return. They probably had reinforcements on the way already.
Fniff1 21:23, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan woke up on a bed. His arm looked like it was almost blasted off. "Oh dear god,Help me!" He cried.
"I've just radioed Vasquez, sir. He wants us to fall back to two klicks north of our current location." Rico explained to Fielding. Fall back? Now? There had to be a reason for it. Fielding gestured for him to continue. "The 'birds you called for have been granted, and they're en route to the specified position. They're carrying supplies, tents and fortifications. He wants us to establish an outpost to regroup at and stage future attacks from, sir." Fielding was about to comment on this when another soldier approached him, carrying a prisoner. "Sir, we found someone you may want to see." The soldier said. Fielding peered at the prisoner. "He seems to be wearing protective armour. Was he armed when he was captured?" He asked. The soldier nodded. "Well, then, Private, would you care to tell me what our standard procedure is with militants in this kind of operation? Son, you're lucky you're not facing disciplinary for wasting my time." He pointed his Gauss Rifle at the prisoner's head and was about to fire, until Rico interjected. "Wait, sir, that's Bren Tenkage! He's wanted for questioning by Secret Service!" The technician shouted quickly. Fielding lowered his rifle. "You sure on that ID?" He asked. "Yes, sir," Rico replied. "Then we're taking 'im with us. Get the squads moving! We're not getting paid by the hour!"
"THEY'RE PULLING BACK!" Dom laughed as he fired stray shots at the retreating Enclave soldiers. "Hahaha! Yes!" He started high-fiving random NCR soldiers, including travellers who'd joined in with the defence of Arroyo. "We did it! We sure showed them!"
Stryker executed a sniper lining up some cover fire for the troops, then put another shot into his spotter. Fool boys thouight they were so slick lying down on top of a hill. Stryker strode back towards the town, watching the Enclave soldiers go. He knew it was petty and immature, but he flipped them off anyway. Then he ducked as another sniper took a shot at him. Stryker picked up his last victim's rifle and plugged the arrogant little swine as he stood up to confirm the kill, right between the eyes. Then Stryker shot his spotter too, just for good measure.
Brengarrett 21:55, 6 April 2009 (UTC) Jason was looking atDejan
Jason: Stay still, a grenade got you, your arm will be alright, but you have to stay still
Skyler: BRen got captured, damn it, I was too late to rescue him
Jason: Guess it is up to you to lead us for this
Back with Bren
Bren was ied up and carried (via 2 guys) and his stuff was taken, one guy was admiring his Rifle
Solider: This is a pretty good rifle, wonder whats with the Deathclaw hand though
Another solider wlaks to Feilding
Solider: Sir, I am a bit confused, his Radation is of the charts, he should be dead at this level
Cerebral plague 22:29, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Leslie was with six NCR troops. He tagged along on their scouting party, looking for approximate Enclave camp locations. He looked through the binoculars, seeing the camp from afar. "Found it guys, let's get the hell back to town, and assault before the reinforcements arrive.".
(Don't rescue me yet, bren will escape himself, then send a signal to Arryo he location and best way to Fight them, maybe even set loose some Reapers (Deathclaws))
"Sniper support isn't responding over radio, sir," Rico said. Fielding knew what this meant. He closed his eyes and sighed weakly. Although something like this was bound to happen, as it always did in this kind of op, each time a casualty had hit Fielding like a sledgehammer to the stomach. They were good men, loyal soldiers. They had families; parents, wives, children all waiting for them at home. He mentally pictured the anguish on their faces when the news reached them. He saw himself at their funerals - or, well, memorial services, as chances are these savages had cut up the bodies, burnt them, shit on the ashes or whatever their freaky Tribal war ritual was. They were only fightng for their country. Hell, one of the spotters was only fresh out of Basic. These mutie bastards were only digging a deeper hole for themselves, he told himself, because once the metaphorical American Eagle swooped down on them, bringing righteous retribution under its wing...
"Sir, I'm a bit confused. His radiation levels are off the charts... he should be dead at this level." The voice of a medic inspecting the prisoner's injuries brought Fielding out of his thoughts, so he clasped his hands together behind his back and turned his attention to the soldier. "That makes things a lot more interesting. Check his entire body for any lesions, rotten flesh, extra toes, anything that would signify genetic non-compliance. Rico, radio Navarro. Get a Secret Service agent out here to perform the interrogation."
"Now, about that beer I owed ya," Dom said as he walked into the room Dejan was in, carrying two bottles of appropriately labled "BEER". He placed one on the table next to Dejan's bed, then cracked open the other one, taking a swig. "Would've brought more for the rest of y'all, but hey, I'm on soldier's wage. How you feeling, buddy?"
The medic looks at Bren and notices the leg was wasn't real and the Ghoul skin was u pto his inner thigh
Medic: My god...
He checks the blood and it is a slight Green (I'm asumming Ghoul blood is Green, so my blood would still be red with a hint of green)
MEdic: Makes sense, but not sense, his Blood is ghoul like, and his left Leg up to his Knee is prostetic, and part of his upper leg is Ghoul like, what the hell is he?
"A freak. Cease further medical care. Have him detained in the holding cells immediately. The medic got up, saluted and walked out. At the same time, the two soldiers who'd carried Bren this far picked him up and dragged him to the de facto "holding cell", which was basically a Deathclaw Cage with a field cot and a toilet with incineration-based sanitation stuffed into it. Soldiers and technicians were hurrying to set up turrets, walls, tents and more cages which would double as buildings for the outpost. Vertibirds were dropping off supplies like no tomorrow - it seemed like they'd be staying for a while.
(right, we will soon be chatting)
Bren wakes up an hour later, the Birds can be a pain on the ears and he looks around
"Damn it...what happened?" Bren says outloud and aSolider knocks his rifle on the Cage
SolideR: The freak wakes up, so what do you want? Brains, Guts? Children? (Just a bit of Ghoul insults that they would know)
Bren: How about a chat with your leader? I'm sure he would like to chat with me
The Solider growls and Walks off to get Frielding, he did have an order to let Fielding know when Bren wakes up
Stryker looked through his binoculars. There was a lot of activity in the air above a small canyon. Too many 'Birds for it to be just an air junction. Field Command? No, too many whirlies. They were setting up a regional camp. Damn, this was not good. Actually, this was barely a step up from waist deep in shit. Maybe it was time to reconcile with the Enclave. The thought of absolute power like that was appealing. But then, he was likely to face a Court Marshall and execution for that business in Vegas. And on top of that, his ex-wife would gut him alive for selling the house and using the money to buy a bunch of Brahmin before the divorce finalized. Stryker had vowed never to forget the look on the bitch's face that day.
He stood up and signalled to a group of NCR scouts nearby. Not one of them had binoculars. Prats.
"Good work, son." Fielding said to the soldier who had been guarding Bren's cage, who saluted and smiled under his helmet, his ego inflated sufficiently by the compliment from his superior officer, then walked off to talk to one of his co-workers. Fielding made his way towards the cage, then unlocked and opens the door. Bren moved to get up, but Fielding had already pulled out his sidearm and was aiming it at the captured Claws leader. "Stand up and I will shoot you. Survive and continue to disarm me and I will break your neck. If, by some act of divine intervention - although I don't know why the Good Lord would smile upon you, ya freak - you are still alive at this point, I will shoot you until you are no longer. Sit back down with your hands in plain sight." Fielding said in a level, informative tone, as though he was reading the news on a Pre-War television show. Bren was quick to comply, sitting on his bed as instructed. There was a single metal chair in the cage, which Fielding lowered himself into after holstering his pistol. He removed his helmet and leant forwards slightly.
"My name is Master Sergeant Carl Fielding. I work for the Enclave, which is your government, and rightful ruler. A lot of you people seem to forget this and shoot us on sight, but we can't expect anything more from savages." Fielding said in the same tone as before. Bren was about to retort, but Fielding's plasma pistol was in his hands before he opened his mouth. "You are not obliged to speak unless asked a direct question." He said. Bren seemed annoyed, but nodded. "Your name is Bren Tenkage, I believe. Now, in a moment, a nice man will arrive at the camp and extract all the information we need from you. However, before he shows up, I'd like to get the facts straight. Why do you think you're wanted for questioning by the United States Secret Service, Mr. Tenkage?"
Bren just smiles
"Well let me think, telling people that we are supposed to be united as Human and Ghoul, in fact I read in some old history books that we are a nation of Unity" Bren says
(BTW think of Tobin Bell AKA Jigsaws Voice forthis next part)
"By the Way, I resent being called a freak, I prefer to be called a person, you seee since you know of me being ghoul, you should know of my leg, well I ws fighting some Crusade soliders, a missle was hot rubble fell, I saved a friend and I was caught, in order to survive, I usesd a Ripper to cut my leg off, then they sent a nuke...do you know what it feels liek to have Radation going through your blood?" Bren asks
Fielding paused. This non-compliant was startlingly intelligent in comparison to the others he'd encountered over the years. Fielding did know what it was like to have radiation going through his blood. Hell, there was probably some going through his system now, still, a year after his "reconstruction"... He quickly and deliberately diverted his attention back to Tenkage. Such thoughts were inappropriate for a soldier of the Enclave, even a unique one, such as himself. He decided that he wasn't going to indulge this bastard with any personal information. "You are avoiding my question, Mr. Tenkage. It is in your best interest to answer me fully. What particular acts did you commit to incur the Enclave's wrath?"
(I g2g, could we just hold off, I don't want to miss any of this or have anyone control me, I'm not trying to be a dick but I reall want to be in control for this)
"So got any nuka cola, wouldn't mind some of thqat? " Bren said as he continued "Lets see....I was involved with Gregory York, wanted me to pit the Brotherhood outcats with the Brotherhood of Steel in the DC area, I helped Jacob from wArrior Weapons, and of course I been spreading so called "Lie" about Ghouls and Humans being friends" Bren said
"So whats your story? The Enclave is only around to take over the USA not unite it" Bren said
Stryker lay down with his .44 repeater. He lined up a shot at one of the sentries of the rapidly growing camp. Then he thought better of it. Shooting with no cover for over five hundred yards other than the bush he'd crawled under would mean death or capture. He decided to observe the camp instead. Birds dropping off supplies all over the place, at least two dozen men, including sentries. Turrets, manned and unmanned, Protecrons, Mr. Gutsy's and Sentry Bots. Not an easy nut to crack.
Stryker crawled slowly backwards out from under the bush, rolled down the hill and took off at acrouching run. He had to tell someone, preferably Arroyo's Elder, about this camp. Then he'd have to tell the locals, and finally the Claws. They were likely to try and wipe the place out solo and get killed if he told them first. Amateurs. Sure, Stryker could take tha camp apart with no help, but it's take over a week and he'd have to cover over eight miles of ground in relocations, but he could do it. Those kids would just try a frontal assault and wind up the new paint scheme on the valley's grass.
Fielding ran over the information in his head. Gregory York? He was a coward and a deserter. If Tenkage had been working for him, and indeed, if York had allowed him to work for him, then this was quite severe indeed. The name Jacob rang no bells, although he had heard one of his commanders mention something about a "Warrior Weapon" in his unit once back in 2272, when he was stationed back in Providence Base. He could recall that man being the most effective soldier he'd ever came across. He assumed that this particular "Warrior Weapon" he'd mentioned must have went rogue or something if he'd recieved Bren's help. So, Tenkage had been helping several deserters and had been violating the Compliancy protocols. Interesting.
"I was born. I grew up. I enlisted, the best decision of my life. I got married, I had a son. I served my country for many years, and here we are now. But this is all irrelevant." Fielding told Bren, blankly ignoring his request for Nuka-Cola. The bastard was lucky he had told him that much about himself. "Your information on the Enclave appears to be false as well, which is hardly surprising, considering you have co-operated with traitors in the past. And remember, Mr. Tenkage, I am the one asking the questions here, so please keep that in mind before you open your mouth again..."
Mick walked into the hospitl and saw dejan lying on one of the beds with dom next to him "dejan what the hell happend to you"
Fniff1 11:53, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"A grenade hit me while I was trying to hold the enclave off with the machine gun. Blasted me off into a mountain." Said Dejan. "I can't believe someone found me."
"you lucky sod"
Fniff1 13:30, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"I know. I even shot a few enclave soldiers." Said Dejan. "Where's Les?" Said dejan.( Back)
"So tell me, why am I captured, I have been helping Deserters and-"
Bren is interupted bya solider coming in with Dog tags
SolideR: Sorry to Inturupt, but we found these in his pack, dog tags from a solider, Ron Tenkage
Bren is about to get up to take them but the pistiol in Fieldings hand tells him otherwise
"Those are my dads, I wouldn't mind having them back" Bren says through his teeth
"hang on wheres that man stryker and wheres your friend bren"
--Cerebral plague 19:44, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
Leach was walking with a NCR patrol. They mainly were just seeing if there was a large force accumulating. They were currently shooting a Enclave patrol, they had came across several. The lead NCR soldier started to talk. "Men, were going to retreat, and get some rest. A new patrol is going to meet us at around this point soon, civilian, you can go home. Feel free to get back in two hours to fight." Leach punched in a tree trunk with his power fist, marking it so he would know where to go back. He started running back to town, reaching it quickly. He was walking around town when he neared the hospital. "Maybe I should check to see if anyone I know got shot".
Fniff1 19:46, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"Dunno." Said Dejan.
"they have to be some ware though"
Fniff1 20:04, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"In a enclave camp maybe? They can't just disappear." Said Dejan.
"last time i checked the enclave don't take prisinors"
--Cerebral plague 20:15, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
Leach knocked on the door. "Dejan, mind if I come in? It's me, Leslie."
Fniff1 20:17, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"Come in!" Said Dejan.
Skyler looks at dejan
Skyler: Dejan, Bren was taken by the Enclave, I tried to save him but I was too busy killing soliders, I feel kinda useless now
Eliz is speehcless an JAson is upset
"who cares he's not NCR"
Jason grabs him and holds him to a Wall
"That man saved me from being a prisoneer, he saved Eliz, and hellped others in need" Jason says glaring at him,. no one has ever seen him this angry before
"nock-nock frankestine" Mick pulled the triger on his 44 magnum that was pointed at the mutants leg
--Cerebral plague 21:05, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
Leach walked in the room, seeing Dejan and his old friend getting his ass kicked by the mutant. "Well then, I want to talk to you guys about what the hell happened that night that you nearly killed me. I want to set things straight. By the way, stop fighting before I put a gigantic hole in both of your heads."
"let me go mutie before i shoot you again"
Jason let go and Mick felt his chest, no broken ribs thank god, a minute longer and he would be dead, JAson checked his Legs, he didn't feel the pain but he still needed to fix the wound so he injects a stim into him
Eliz: Don't call him that, he is our friend, and equal
--Cerebral plague 21:14, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
Leach draws his Metal Blaster, and aims at the super mutants face. "Both of you, stop fighting before I drop the super mutant, and I cut off the other ones arms!"
"fine i won't shoot anyway i don't hate mutants just non NCR mutants"
Fniff1 21:19, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"You know mick,Sometimes you are too loyal to the NCR. Don't hit me! I'm on the crippled pension!" Said Dejan
"the NCR rules dejan no question"
Fniff1 21:34, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"Sure, They sheltered us from the horrors of the wasteland but can they fly?" Said Dejan.
"if we steal V-Birds yes we can fly"
"... Wait, what?" Dom said with his beer in his hand, peering at Dejan confusedly. "Fly? Are you serious? Of course not! Only birds can fly! And... V-birds... or whatever they're called, but seriously, I think the painkillers are getting to your head, man. You know what those Pre-War health advisory holotapes said; don't mix drugs and alcohol." Dom said.
"Ron Tenkage? He was declared AWOL god-knows-how long ago and declared dead a year or two ago." Fielding said, thinking back. He knew he'd heard the name Tenkage in the past, but at first he thought it must have been just a common surname. "And you claim to be his son? Well, this is really quite interesting. If your claim is verifiable, Mr. Tenkage, and I really hope it isn't, then this has made the situation a lot worse for you. Non-compliant sympathiser? Assister of deserters? Son of a deserter? I'm honestly considering radioing Navarro and telling them to keep the interrogator. In light of your apparent crimes, then the Secret Service doesn't need any information from you. However, I have one question; where is your father?"
"i said if we steal V-birds we can fly"
--Cerebral plague 21:52, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"Man, you need a V-bird pilot before you can fly". And is anyone listening too me?"
Fniff1 21:57, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"I am. Tell us what you need to say." Says Eliz.
--Cerebral plague 22:25, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
"Well, I was going to ask you guys what exactly happened that night. All I remember is the shot, and how start went." Leach looked across the room, as Dejan looked worried.
Bren looks down sad and Fielding relized he touched a nerve but he pushed the thoughts away
"Dead, I found his body in the DC area, he died from some Deathclaws, he had a holetape cursing the Enclave, let me guess my mother? Dead also, she was from Japan and died to protect her leader....so I'm an orphan from the Kid town of Little Lamplight" Bren says upset
The Solider Hands him the Dog tags, he had the respect to give him those but then he backs off
"So what now, shoot me, torture me till you get info? Maybe brainwash me and use me as a solier?" Bren asks
Stryker walked along the hospital hallway, looking around for the room Dejan was supposed to be in. There were a grand total of seven rooms in the hospital, so he decided to try the loudest one first.
"Well, I see you started the party without me!" Stryker said, looking at all the weapons people had pulled. Just to be on the safe side, he drew his D'Eagle. Nobody looked particularly happy, and someone had shot the mutant.
Skyler was pretty calm, he had in his pocket a pistiol just in case
"Well Mick insultedBren, and Jason grabed him, he shot Jason to let him go, then our Next friend came in and stoppd the fight, basically we are all on edge since Bren went missing" SKyler explains and Jason nods while the Stim works it's magic on his legs
"Brainwash you? Just what do you think I am; a Pre-War holofilm villain?" Carl said, a lopsided smirk creeping along his face. That last question had quite amused him. "Really, now, I'm insulted. We have no need for a Wastelander in the ranks of the Enclave, especially one with your history." Fielding looked down at his own helmet in his hands, then sighed slightly. He turned to look at the soldier who'd handed Bren the tags. "Go and tell Rico to get back on the line to Navarro. We don't need a Secret Service agent over here now. Say the prisoner was misidentified." The soldier seemed unsure, but Fielding just continued to stare at him for a moment, which prompted him to scurry off to the recently established radio tent. Fielding turned back to Bren. "Tell me, Mr. Tenkage; just what do you think you'll accomplish by defying the Enclave?"
(that was one line)
"The asnwer is simple, it is somthing you never give the Wasteland, Hope. I am giving Hope to the Wasteland,showing that the common man can become stronger" Bren says calmly, clutchiung the only thing that belonged to his dad (the book was his mothers) "So tell me, how are you helping the Wasteland by attacking Settlements?" Bren asks and then he is punched in the Gut by him due to his calm cheek
That was a perfectly reasonable question for somebody who didn't know what they were talking about. But it was Bren's tone that set Fielding off. He abruptly got to his feet and drove his fist into the Wastelander's gut once with sudden brutality, the machinery on the inside and the outside of his arm putting an unhealthy amount of force behind it. "Attacking settlements? Attacking enemy settlements. Approximately thirty-seven years ago, an individual from the town of Arroyo with ties to the New California Republic destroyed the Enclave's capital city and took hundreds, maybe thousands of innocent civilians with it. And he was celebrated as a hero! Are we to stand by and let such barbarity occur?" Fielding spat, standing up. "There's a time for helping America, and there's a time for destroying her enemies. The attack earlier tonight, and the attacks soon to come, definitely fall into the latter category." He hissed, putting his helmet back on. "But I'm sure your radiation-addled mind is far too crippled to see the bigger picture."
Bren coughs some of his blood
"Good punch, but you forgot somthing, your people made the Vaults to make yourown people become experiments, I read reports, I met people from Vaults, you never helped them, you left them to suffer while your people relaxed in Confort" Bren said with malice
"So don't tell me abotu the bigger picture, I can tellyou want the USA to yourself and destory all that you find to be ugly, To me You are the Mutant" Bren said and his philospy is almost astounding
"Go ahead attack, but remmeber this, you will lose the lives of many soliders if you do, I have friends in their who I would trust my life to and they will beat you" Bren adds and it causes Fielding to be annoyed
"So what is your answer? Also you might want o not turn your back on me, Ghouls are known to fight dirty...wait thats Enclave solider" Bren says with Cheek
Fielding's eye muscles twitched subconsciously underneath his helmet, a bead of sweat forming on his forehead and trickling down his face. "Don't call me a mutant," he mumbled to himself, which due to the voice modulator in his helmet, sounded quite a bit like an animal's growl. Fielding quickly got a hold of himself, taking a deep breath. He was letting this Wastelander get under his skin. That was unacceptable - he was a disciplined soldier with seventeen years of service, and this mutie abomination was working him up, trying to make him snap. He wouldn't give him the satisfaction.
"Your petty insults aside," Fielding said quietly, "How do you think your "friends" will defeat the best-trained, best-equipped army in the United States? The Enclave has produced its own technology since the War, and you? You degenerates cluster around the relics of the past like moths to a flame. Relics of the past which rightfully belong to the Enclave! You're living off of our waste!" His voice grew progressively louder, eventually becoming a shout. For some reason, Fielding had always wanted to say something like this to a Wastelander. His volume dropped again as he continued. "We will grind you pathetic, mutated monstrosities into the ground. And your "friends" won't be able to stop us." Fielding had to admit, he was beginning to sound like a Pre-War holofilm villain, but wasn't villainy a matter of perspective?
"thats not quite true skyler i only said i don't care about bren because he's not part of the ncr"
"Right. Well, mutant, Jason, right? Well, I spared you in Vegas, I spared you in DC. If you keep it up with the bullshit, I'll end you just like I said I would, back in '65. And you, Mr. NCR Propaganda Propagator, I don't like you. You give me an uncomfortableness. I'll kill you if you start anything. And I'll decide what starting something is, for example, coughing at the sick fella over there. And you, my God you're large, I'll shoot you in the face for the hell of it, because I know you'll want a piece of the action." Stryker said to Jason, Cross and Skyler, respectively. Now that he had everyone on the same side, albeit by getting everyone mad at him, he sat down, handed Dejan a mutfruit, and some fancy lads snack cakes.
"What? Even I don't visit a sickie without bringing a present. Yeesh, you lot need to expand your horizons. There's no black and white, just different shades of grey. Everyone'll surprise ya in some way or another." Stryker said.
Fniff1 12:30, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Thanks,Daniel." Dejan says.
(looks like Bren has Fielding a little hot under the power collar)
"Stay calm, you will live longer, I suggest a nuka cola with some Lurk meat" Bren says "As for my friends, they have something to fight for, freedom from your group, To be honest I wonder why the Enclave is even trying to make its old Republic, it is a Tyronny (he learned some fot eh history from Jason's books and The little Lamplight computor BTW) you are going against your own goals and making yourself the enemy" Brens words makes fielding leave the area annoyed, and a guard was set up to hold him and make sure he doesn't escape
Bren thoughts: Fielding, I hope my words made you think about what the Enclave really is (I'm not saying to Turn him, just make him wonder)
Bren then began to plan his escape, he already had a plan in his mind but he had to wait for Nightfall
Jason: Sorry Mick, I got a little Feral, I guess I am to blame, here have a stim your your chest, I hope I didn't hurt you
Skyler: Jason you are one odd person
Everyone looks at him funny
Skyler: WHAT? (See the Irony?)
Fniff1 14:33, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Dejan,You are the commander when Bren is missing,Yes?" The negotiator was at the door, Holding some flowers. "We raided vault city,Killed most of the resistance and I picked some flowers for ya." He walked over and put the flowers on the side of the bed.
Skyler: Since you are our leader, tell us what to do?
Jason: I will follow you, Bren trusted you to take over the Claws in his absents
Stryker looked at the strange man. Either that thing about Vault City was some sort of joke, or they were all talking to the guy's ghost.
"Who are you?" Stryker sighed, too many new faces. It was getting quite confusing. He spun the tumbler of his Raging Bull to kill some time. The raider girl kept looking at the massive pistol. She was probably wondering whether or not she'd survive trying to steal it.
Fielding sighed as he walked through the field outpost. Construction was pretty much finished at this point, with tents of different sizes and small buildings constructed out of the titanium-steel plates so often seen in Enclave camps. He noticed that about seven soldiers were standing around a certain crate a 'Bird had dropped off, so he walked over and peered into it. This crate in particular was filled with bottles of various shapes and sizes, which were, in turn, filled with alcohols of different kinds. The soldiers looked at him expectantly. "Take this crate to Rations Officer Williams," he said finally. "You did a good job tonight, so I'm authorising you to have some. But if you're still wasted at 0400 hours, then there will be disciplinary." He barked. The soldiers all nodded and saluted, before two of them picked the crate up. Fielding reached in and retrieved a bottle of whisky, before nodding at the troops and making his way back to the Command Tent. He needed a rest and something strong to drink to get that Wastelander's bullshit out of his mind.
"Yeah, well, guys, uh, I'm afraid you can't really follow him when he can't move." Dom rationalised to the apparently over-eager Claws, gesturing to Dejan on the bed. "Look at him. He damn near lost his leg. He can't lead troops into battle."
Fniff1 14:45, 8 April 2009 (UTC)Yeah it was.
"But I can." The negotiator handed Dejan a radio. The negotiator took out his and said into it "Nice,Isn't it?" "Yeah,Very nice." dejan replied.
"Yeah, if he was a horse, he'd be shot." Stryker said. Then reconsidered the phraze. None of them, except Skyler, who was sniggering, knew what a horse was. "If he was a dog, he'd be put out of his misery."
Stryker shook his head slowly. This was going to be a long night. And on top of all this, Stryker was the only person in the room who knew where the Enclave forces had set up their regional camp. And he was right not to tell the Claws. By the looks of it, they'd go marching into that valley and get pulverized by gatling laser fire the second they came into view. And now these Eagle fools were going to do it anyway. Stryker decided to keep the camp location to himself for the time being.
Fniff1 14:52, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"No,I tell him what's going on,He tells me whether or not it's a good idea to pull back." the negotiator says.
"And where do you plan to hit?That little camp up on the hill three miles south of here? The Pre-War bunkers all over the State? Oh, I know, you're going to find where the Enclave Government is holed up and blow it up like the Chosen one did in '42!" Stryker said. These amateur children were doing nothing more than playing soldiers.
Stryker sat back in his seat and looked at this Negotiator. Pansy, wouldn't even give his real name. He probably had a ponytail at some point in his life too. Tosser.
"Exactly," Dom said. "There's jack-shit we can do, with a force like this. Even if we know where they're holed up at, they've probably got their own fort set up by now! With turrets and shit, and those V-Birds patrolling the air! It's not as if a small force could do anything." Although he was doing his damndest to hide it, Dom was frightened at the concept of attacking the Enclave. They'd devastated a good portion of the town in a small hit-and-run attack, so he dreaded to think how they dealt with a band of mercs, ruffians and grunts attacking the front gates.
Fniff1 15:06, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
" We're just going to release some deathclaws on them. No one can say that they were commanded by the eagles." He said.
"Dude, I can kill a Deathclaw," Dom said. He couldn't, really, not single-handedly at least, but he'd at least fired the killing shot on one which had came to close to the gates of Arroyo, once. "Imagine what the Enclave do to Deathclaws! I mean, they probably, like, brainwash them and turn them into shock troopers or something!"
Fniff1 15:17, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"We thought past that. Deathclaws don't come back after 40 minutes and we see they are the same place on our radar all the time,BOOM." He says.
"But we don't know where they are! And how the hell are we gonna train the Deathclaws?" Dom said, his voice quickly becoming energetic and panicky. "I mean, they could, like, go and attack other NCR settlements! They could kill people!" Dom realised how high-pitched and whiney he sounded and realised he must have been annoying the others, so he sat back down and took a heavy swig of beer.
Fniff1 15:22, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"We have. Them attacking the NCR? Killing people? The enclave are worse then that." He says.
"Listen to yourself you ignorant little fuck! You're saying that killing innocent people with Deathclaws is worth it just to get Bren back. I should have killed him in Baltimore!" Stryker growled. Before anyone moved he had a hand on Dejan's IV bag. One shake of that bag, and Dejan was a dead man.
Stryker was sick of listening to the Claws and the Eagles conspiring to attack the Enclave when they had no idea where thy were headed. And Dejan's braindead Deathclaw idea. These people pissed him off.
Fniff1 15:38, 8 April 2009 (UTC)(Dude,Dejan didn't say that.)
"He's probably got a better chance of getting out on his own," Dom commented, his tone of voice slightly quieter and calmer now. He certainly had a better chance escaping alone than escaping with the "help" of Deathclaws, he thought. "Honestly, man, I think it's the meds getting to your head. You should rest." He said to Dejan, patting him on the shoulder. He then looked up at Stryker. "... Uh, let go of that, please."
Fniff1 15:45, 8 April 2009 (UTC)DEJAN DIDN"T SAY ANYTHING.THE NEGOTIATOR DID!
"Guys,What the hell are you doing?" Says Dejan.
Fniff1 15:50, 8 April 2009 (UTC)Sorry,Just thought saying the Negotiator said this and that would sound a bit weird.
- -(Call him N and Dejan Dejan, as for me, time for the escape, feel free to laugh soon)
At night fall Bren could see through the window the guard looking bored
"Hey, look bored, how abouta card game, check my pack I have a deck, the smaller pocket on the right" Bren says to him
The guard looks into the Cell and thinks for a moment, he was bored, and he was armed so there wasn't a risk of an attack so he goes into Bren's pack that was nearbye and takes otu the deck of card and walks in
Guard moves a small table tro the middle of the room and shuffles the cards, after 3 hands of Teaxs holdem (Called Wild Draw) Bren decides on 21
Bren: How abotu this, if you beat me, I will tell you the location of some important documents in Arryo
The Guard grins because he already won 3 hands in a row so he acepts
The guard looks at his cards and puts the gun down for a second
GuarD: Hit me
Bren does as told, he hits him hard i nthe face then jump and slashes his throat wiht a hidden knife
Bren: Nice try
Bren dones the man's power armer and shuts the cage and takes his stuff, no one noticed what happened and he had to hurry to cause a little trouble right now
Fniff1 17:21, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
N walks out of the room and tunes the radio to some other channel. He says into it "Unleash the Killers." "Roger that!" a A voice replies. (Bren,Want a little Bred for killing Deathclaws?)
(funny thing I was going to use the Card on the solider to unelash them but you got to it first, this could be bad)
Bren was walking thdevice that controled the Deathclaws, his Passcard should get him into the system but then he heard somthing, the sound of a pissedo ff Deathclaw
"Uhoh" Bren says to hismelf as he saw 2 of them running to him
"DAMN IT" Bren shouted and he fires using hsi rilfe (don't forget energy weapons are beyound him) and he takes down the first one but the 2nd was coming right at him
Fniff1 17:31, 8 April 2009 (UTC)(Actually bren,Those creatures are The Eagles best weapons.)
(Well bren doesn't know that and he is trying to survive)
Bren fires more shots and the Deathcalw fillaly falls
"Mother fucker....what happened?" Bren says as he hears people screaming in pain and Death
"Tikme to go" Bren says as he runs out of the camp and soon he is on his way back....hopefully
Fielding put the half-full bottle of whisky back on his desk when he heard some commotion coming from elsewhere in the camp. Grunting to himself, he got up and pulled his helmet back on, before making his way out of the tent. He saw that there was something going on inside the designated Deathclaw Control tent, so he jogged across the camp and pushed the kevlar-lined drapes that functioned as doors open. What he saw astounded him. The Deathclaws were running wild, and one of them was charging towards him. It swung one of its dreaded claws at him so he quickly stood backwards to avoid it. While its right arm was still across its torso after swinging, he grabbed it with a single hand and pressed it brutally against the creature's chest, pretty much snapping the arm at the elbow. It shrieked and snapped at his face, but his helmet held true.
With his free hand, he dextrously pulled out his standard-issue Combat Knife and drove it into its stomach, twisting it 180 degrees. It really didn't seem to like this, and started flailing its limbs wildly, but soon enough it was spitting out globules of saliva mixed with its own blood. Carl quickly let go of its arm and took hold of the back of its neck firmly, and then, asserting his other hand underneath its chin, applied sudden force upwards until he heard a crack. Throwing the predator's limp body to the floor, he pulled his combat knife out of its stomach and sheathed it again, before moving over to the terminal and whacking the emergency containment button with his fist. Photonic Resonance barriers materialised in front of each of the cages, trapping the remaining frenzied Deathclaws inside. Unfortunately, he was too late. Several Deathclaws had already dispersed around the camp, so he picked up a nearby Gatling Laser, fixed the Electron Charge Pack module to his back, stepped out of the tent and got to work...
Cross had steped out for a look on the enclave.There were deathclaws atacking it he popped back inside "what the hell just happend i just saw deathclaws atacking the enclave how the hell did you do that steal a mind control device"
(have just enopguh time to add this part)
Bren took off the armer and continued hiking ot Arryo, soon he will be able to make it and help Dejan and his friends, and he has the pass cards to the systems which could be useful
"Well, I better get back on duty," Dom said. "Hope I'm not... not too drunk to guard properly. Heh." With that, he stood up and left the room, staggering slightly on the stairs and cursing himself as he did so. He left the hospital and made his way back to his guard post, where his fellow watchman was wondering where the hell he'd been. After Dom explained, they got to business as usual, and all was calm until they saw a figure in the distance, hiking towards the town...
--Cerebral plague 19:37, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Will you all stop fighting. I for one don't give a shit what happens to the half-ghoul. Now, I wanted to ask Dejan what exactly happened that night. And don't feed me any bullshit, here's what I remember. During the fight, there were no fire arms allowed, but Dejan hid a rifle nearby. I had brought his power fist, but when taking it off, you allowed me to keep it on, you said that it didn’t matter. During the fight, I was winning , but then Dejan pulled a gun on me. He shot me in the head, and I survived barely. Soon, I was in a hospital bed for two years in a coma. I woke up at the age of 21, with slight amnesia.
Fniff1 19:54, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Look,I was stupid, You were stupid,Daniel was stupid and everybody was stupid. We fought because we both loved Eliz and you told me you loved her,and I needed revenge. A rifle was both good for if the fight got out of hand or I was losing,Both which happened.I shot you but you were charging me with a power fist. I could have died! Before you say it,I said that it wouldn't matter because I thought you couldn't power fist me. But you almost did and I had a defense." dejan says.
--Cerebral plague 20:04, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"I never said I loved her! I said I had a crush on her. Then you flipped out and started screaming! You still broke the rules, NO FIREARMS. It didn't matter if I could of power fisted you, I still was about to take it off! But then you said no, and a gun was still not fair. Didn't matter if you were losing, a gun kills, a power fist wouldn't unless I aimed for the head!"
"Or his chest or solar plexus. My god you're stupid. Concussive impacts like that cause internal damage like a bitch. Your kidneys bounce around, your stomach, spleen, pancreas and liver rupture, your heart could stop, your lungs could perforate, and a whole lot more!" Stryker said frustatedly. These people were really starting to get at him with their naive little ideals of right and wrong.
(can't wait to see Fielding's expression when he finds out Iescaped)
Bren soon made it to Arryo in about 45 minutes, and he collapised from exustion o nthe ground
Dom, still posted at the gate, knelt at Bren's side. "Ah, shit," he muttered to himself, nudging him a few times. He looked up at his colleague, who shrugged. "Come on. We need to get him to a hospital."
Wounded soldiers were carried off to the medical tent, corpses were prepared to be shipped back to Navarro and Deathclaws were hauled into the incinerator as Fielding held his Gatling Laser at his side, observing the camp. That sort of incident was unacceptable. He was beginning to suspect sabotage from the inside. A soldier ran up to him, looking exhausted. "S-sir! There's something you've got to see!" He said, making a weak salute. Fielding followed him to the makeshift cell Bren had been detained in, seeing the deck of cards strewn across a table and a dead man in Enclave underarmor lying there against the cold metal, his throat slit. "Where is he?" He asked the soldier who had shown him the state of the cage. "We don't know, sir. I think he escaped from the camp in the commotion." Fielding closed his eyes and sighed heavily. "... Good work, soldier. Take Private Harvey's body for transport." He said quietly. The soldier obliged, carrying his fallen comrade away and leaving Fielding alone in the cell. There was a loud clang as his fist made impact with the steel.
(looks like he wil have a Vendada against Bren, and I g2g so see ya in an hour)
Bren grabs Dom's aarm and says ina low tone" Dejan, take me to Dejan, I need to to see him" Bren was tired but it wasn't gonna stop him
Dom nodded to Bren and slipped his hands underneath his armpits, preparing to lift him up. "We need to carry him. I'll get his shoulders, you get his legs." The other watchman nodded and took hold of Bren's ankles. They both counted to three in synchrony, then lifted Bren and carefully began carrying him to the hospital where Dejan was recovering at. A few minutes later, the two of them walked into the room with Bren in their arms, gently letting him down in a chair at Dejan's bedside. "There we go. He asked to see you, Dejan."
(I have a little time to do this)
"Well Dejan, miss me?" Bren says grinning as he closes his eyes and takes a deep Breath
Skyler: Bout time you arrived, some of us didn't want to rescuse you because you arn't NRC
Jason: I couldn't stand to see you gone
Bren smiles, he had good friends, but the problem isn't over, Fielding wsggonna attack and because of what he said, it is more then likly personal then just an order
Bren: Guys, I met the LEader, his name is Fielding, and let me tell you, the Enclave is crazy, he wants to take out arryo due to what the chosen on did to the Enlcvae back then
Fniff1 21:54, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Think they would settle for the chosen one?" Says Dejan. "Maybe a fake one with loads of firearms?"
"What? No, Dejan, he wants to see the Chosen One and anything he holds dear burn. He wants to break the NCR to matchwood, he wants to see the Brotherhood torn down and he wants to see Arroyo and Vault City and everyone living there taking a dirt-nap with Baby Jesus. Thats what I'd do if someone killed off hundreds, if not thousands of my countrymen." Stryker said.
Everyone in the room looked at him after that rant. He looked around, and for once, people seemed to understand just how deep the shit they were in was.
Fniff1 22:15, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Then what the hell are we going to do?" Said Eliz. Everybody looked at Daniel in a suggestive way.
"Well, as you folks aren't bright enough to cut your losses and call it a day, I suggest the lot of you just lay down and die. Save the Enclave the trouble." Stryker said. "Or, you could try a little inconventional warfare, but the little feral girl here doesn't seem to be the subtle softly does it type."
Stryker looked around. They could say what they wanted about him. He knew when someone had the better of him. He knew that the Brotherhood wouldn't help the NCR. He knew that whatever Fielding wanted to do, he could and would do. Most importantly, he knew that the people of Arroyo would fight tooth and nail to keep their freedom, and the Claws could do nothing to change that, nor could they turn the tide. Arroyo would become a graveyard once the Enclave got their teeth into it.
Bren looked down
"We weither evacuate some people otu wh owant to leave, stay and fight, or levae thetheir fate" Bren says sadly "So what shoudl we do?" Bren asks
--Cerebral plague 22:49, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"I think we'll wait for the NCR to get here with re-infocements, and let them do the attacking. Kid, you don't seem like the leadership type." Leach, at this time and place realized that Dejan and this kid ran around pretending to be heroes.
"Good idea, so anywone want to staya nd Help?" Bren asks
Skyler: I could use a work out
Jason: Iwill follow you if yyou stay
Eliz: what ever you want
"Bren, how about you stop asking other people what to do and make a decision your fucking self." Stryker said. The boy wasn't a leader, he was a God damned manager.
"But either way, I'm in. You'll need someone to train these fools how to fight a guerrilla war." Stryker added, looking around. That and someone needed to keep tabs on these kids.
(Bren does this becqause he isn't justa leader, he is their equal)
"I trust thier reasons, if they want to leave, they can I won't order the nto die for me" Bren stay sternly andhe gets up weakly
"I will take watch for the Enclaver, prepare because if I know the Enlcave, they are coming and they are pissed" Bren says walking out with his rifle, he was ready to Die and protect this place
SkyleR: Might as well help hi
Skyler arms his Guantlets and walks out with him
--Cerebral plague 22:59, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Well then, let's set up shop soon. I'm going to go out and do a patrol with a bunch of NCR guys I was helping out earlier." Leach walked out of the room, thinking of getting a cooler nickname. Then again, the whole town called him Leach or Les.
Fniff1 23:04, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
"Daniel,F*ck you." Dejan said.
"Hey, Dej, cool it. He's only trying to give us all a hand." Dom said, nodding a few times whilst trying not to scream like a little girl. The Enclave were going to attack and he was going to die, he knew it. But he'd decided that he was going to do so while fighting, even in futility. "I'll, uh... I'll do what I can to help. Firstly though, my CO needs to here about this." He continued. "... I'll do it," His eternally anonymous fellow gate guard said, then left the hospital to make his way to the local NCR barracks. Dom took a deep breath and looked around the group. "So, you guys need a hand with anything?"
"Dejan, you are on my last fucking nerve." Stryker growled. "You stay the fuck away from me when this shit hits the fans, just in case something unfortunate should happen."
Stryker stood up. Time for some scouting and sabotage. He'd been meaning to put those anti-materiel rounds he'd bought to good use. Five minutes later, he was in the Elder's chamber.
"I want five of your best scouts. The Enalave camp I told you about earlier is mobilizing, and I think a little scouting and maybe a few hit and runs are in order, to slow them down, if nothing else." Stryker said. He grimaced as he realised he'd forgotten to say please. The Elder nodded slowly.
A further ten minutes later, Stryker was briefing the men he'd been given as they prepared for battle. In another ten minutes, they'd be en route to that camp, ready to blow a few ammunition crates, burn some fuel, and maybe even shoot a few officers.
Bren was watching from a tower, with Skyler
Bren: God I hate it when people underestimate me
Skyler: Eh, your young, and your deicsion arn't always the right ones
Bren: You're right...just wish people wouldn't think I am useless
Bren looked out in the distance he thought of an idea
Bren: Hey Skyler, set up some mines about half a mile away
Skyler nodded and jumped down with his Stealth boy
Skyler: Be right back
Bren smiled, this would at least take out some Enclave, but it wouldn't be enough to win, he needed a plan
(Ok fixed it)
Master Sergeant Fielding watched solemnly as the Vertibirds carrying the bodies of the soldiers who'd died following the sabotaged Deathclaw Control system incident departed in the direction of Navarro. Their deaths would not be in vain, he told himself. The Enclave were going to scour the filthy degenerates off the face of the planet and that bastard Tenkage was going to pay. And eventually, he was going to petition for better firewall systems on the terminals controlling the Deathclaws. But for now, he would plan and he would prepare. Reinforcements, replacements for the fallen soldiers and more, were en route from the base. Most of the men were sleeping now, and it was just him, Rico, a few guards and several robots still active in the camp. He'd let the boys have their rest, because they were going to need it. Tomorrow was going to be a long, hard but ultimately successful day, Fielding knew that much.
As Bren stood near the gates a sniper lined up a shot at him. This was going to be a good one. That was the blasphemous escaped prisoner. Right through the cerebellum. Oh, this was going to be brilliant. The sniper never noticed the shimmer to his left. He never felt the Ka-Bar knife slip between the top of his combat armor and the bottom of his helmet. All he noticed was a split second of blinding pain as his brain was cut off completely from the rest of his body.
"Move" Stryker barked as he deactivated his armor's stealth field. His little scout unit scampered along the hillside, aiming rifles down at the Crusade lines. At Stryker's order, they opened fire. By the time the Enclave forces had organized a unit to move on them, Stryker and his crack team were long gone.
"Uh, sir?" Rico said as he walked up behind Fielding, who turned around and nodded for him to continue. "The reinforcements you requested from Navarro... it appears roughly a third of them have already touched down a half-mile from Arroyo and are making their way to the town on foot." The technician explained. "What? Who ordered that?!" Fielding barked, surprised and enraged. "Colonel Vasquez, sir. It's only about twelve infantry, with two snipers and four--" Rico was interrupted by Fielding. "Well, establish radio contact with Vasquez. I'd like a word."
Skyler came back
"I met up with Stryker, told him where the mines were, he said it as a pretty decent plan, then told me to Fuck off while real men did their work" Skyler sid while Bren looks down
Bren: what ever, I better get somthing to eat, I got a feeling somthing bad may happen soon
Bren walks back to the Town and to aBar to gety spome food and nuka cola (Bren and Nuka cola equals happyness, BTW I g2g, Fniiff then Solbur, take over, No one kills me or Skyler, I already have plans for them, Jason...well you decide on that)
Stryker led his crack team into Arroyo, carrying the rifles of the two snipers he had brought down, and raising a small cheer from the crowd as he hailed his unit as Enclave killers. This town needed every morale boost it could get.
"Bren, get down here and greet the soldiers who drew first blood!" Stryker shouted to Bren, while indicating the five young men standing nearby. All five of them looked like they were about to explode with pride.
Mick ran down the street when he heard the cheers and saw stryker proclaiming loadly that his men had draw first blood "stryker thats not quite true those rpg troupers on the hills were the first to atack and they brought down a V-Bird.Any way i have good news the president has agreed to send us another 3 regiments"
Fniff1 11:42, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan was sleeping in bed. He seemed to be sleeping a bit more often.
Stryker took Mick aside for a little chat.
"Cross, these people need a morale boost, you fuck-up. If we say they drew first blood, then they did. As I recall, one of these villagers destroyed the Enclave Oil Rig and saved your pathetic little republic. So if someone says something to keep their spirits up, you are going to nod politely and smile. And if you don't, so help me God, I'll skin you alive. And no, the NCR will not chase me to the ends of the Earth, because you are one among hundreds of thousands, they'll find a replacement instead of crippling their economy hunting a man who is much better trained tan the best they have to offer. You shake the morale of these people ever again, and you are a dead man." Stryker growled.
Bren walked to Stryker
"I agree, we have to have moralle boosted here, if we don't we may die" Bren said To Mick
Bren walked to the people
"Everyone, we will be engulfed intoa battle, but tommorow we will show the Enclave what the Chosen One has created, we will show them the skills that we learned from him, we won't lose we will infact Defeat Them and Destory Them!" Bren shouted the message out and everyoen cheers
Bren then turns to Mick
"That is how you Rally some Milta" Bren says smiling and skyler who was nearby laughs a bit
"Oh Christ." Stryker muttered. "Bren, there is a difference between a morale boost and an outright lie."
Stryker turned away and walked into a bar. He needed something tall and strong to stop him slapping Bren up and down the street for the next half-hour. The bartender turned to him and gave him a questioning look.
"No, I don't think we'll destroy them. I don't think we can win this. But we can fight and die as free men and women. And if we do, I'll be proud to die as one of you." Stryker said. Thankfully, it was just him and the bartender in the building at the time.
The sky above Arroyo became alive with noise and wind as the Vertibird touched down. Bren nearly shit his pants as he looked at the symbol painted on the fusilage. It was the red cog and sword symbol of the Outcasts. Protector Wallace Ranik stepped off the Vertibird, along with four other Outcasts, their black and red T-45x Power Armor as menacing as ever. "Bren Tenkage!" Ranik called out. Bren recognized the voice immediately. "Ranik old buddy... h-how've you been?" Bren said. Ranik walked forward, flanked by the four other Outcasts. Skyler took a step forward and relented as four miniguns were brought to bear. "I've gotten word from Vaughton," Ranik said, "you started a war in D.C. that cost the Brotherhood dearly. Despite their rogue ways, they were still Brothers of Steel and the Elders have taken interest in you. Wherever you go, war follows, then you flee like a coward. Bren Tenkage the Elders have labelled you a threat to the Brotherhood of Steel. You are nothing more than a warmonger and an aid to chaos. I am here now to protect the best interests of the Brotherhood, though I personally, would love nothing more than to put a bullet in your head and be done with it. I warn you now, Tenkage, I have four Outcasts with me and if any are injured or killed here, you will be held personallly responsible and will answer to me." Bren was shaking and visibly unnerved by the sight of this man from his past. Ranik turned and walked back to the Vertibird, as he and his men started to unload the automatic turrets that they had brought with them.
(got my personality down nicly)
Bren looks down
"Ranik, when this is over, I will go with you back to the Elders, I won't run, I won't hide, I will be willing to allow myself to be taken in your Custody" Bren said
"But now we share a Common Enemy, I will fight to the Best fo my Abiltie, and make sure your soliders don't die" Bren says
ranik looks at Bren then his leg
Ranik: What the hell happened to you?
Bren: Long story short, cut my leg off from rubble, got radation and now I'm half ghoul
"Well, who's this Bren? Old friend? Enemy? Whoever you are, Brother of Steel, I'm Daniel Stryker. My past and future aren't as important as the now. And that involves the Enclave jumping this little corner of the world and trying to choke the life out of it. I'm one of the people who doesn't want that happening." Stryker said. Brotherhood! Could this day get any worse. Well, it could, but not in the next five minutes.
Micks mind went into chaos brotherhood here what the hell didn't they know that they were at war never mind if bren then he was micks.me looked the Brotherhood troupers up and down "look brotherhood asewipes i dont like you but if bren is a enamy of the council take him but im sure as sure that you don't want the enclave to crush the home of the chosen one"
"Oh fuck! Not now!" Dominic squealed in horror as the Vertibird touched down. He fired blindly four times with his pistol at the familiar aircraft (not realising that he'd missed every shot in his fury). He was sick and tired of the Enclave's bullshit already, and them attacking now? Well, that meant that he was going to die, but he was going to die with a gun in his hand, he thought! With an empty magazine! He was about to shoot again until he took notice of their metal suits. They had similar colours, but they were different... Several of them were aiming weapons at him and barking harsh words at him, but he wasn't really listening. Carefully, Dom bent down and put his 14mm on the floor.
"Uh... hey guys, heh... sorry, I've had a bad day... thought you were Enclave, y'see... hey, nice ride!"
Fireman0504 - Oops. I guess I didn't think of VanBuren as canon because it was cancelled. If it is, my bad, I'll think of something else. Ranik has some unfinished business with Bren, and for obvious reasons would like one of the results below enacted... If its canon, I'll figure something else out
"Protector Wallace Ranik, formerly of the D.C. Brotherhood Outcasts. Now I am commanding officer of the Western Brotherhood Outcasts. A division of the Brotherhood of Steel allowed the honor of keeping the title, ranks ,and traditions of the Outcasts alive. We are here to see this conflict ended and our mutual friend, Mr. Tenkage here, sent back to D.C." Ranik looked a Bren. "Tenkage, you will not be taken into custody. I would sooner kill you than allow you into Lost Hills. You will not go into custody. Your options are simple: when this is over you will leave, return to D.C. and never come back or you will be shot." Ranik turned to see a Super Mutant coming in his direction, as well as a jibbering woman. His men took up defensive stances with their miniguns again. "And you will take your group of misfits with you." Ranik stated firmly. He was giving Bren this one out. This one plan of escape. If Bren valued his life, he'd ake it. After the atrocities witnessed in Austin and the suffering of Fairfax and the Exodus, Ranik had pretty much turned all notions of mercy aside. He'd become grim and weary of battle. He longed for the finality of peace with his new family a Lost Hills. With his new mantle as Protector within the Outcast Detachment, he was doing what was necessary to ensure the survival of his Brothers. He knew that being rid of Tenkage, whether in death or in exile, would do a great ammount to secure that goal.
"you will have to consult the chosen one about that he has taken tenkage under our protection.But aslong as you help us with the enclave i supose it will be ok and we forget that the brotherhood have arived in a ncr setelment"
"Tenkage and the Outcasts have... a history." Ranik stated flatly. "I've been sent to make sure that history isn't repeated. One way or another. As for the NCR, while the Enclave is at large, the Brotherhood is offering a temporary ceasefire. My men are some of the Outcast Airborne Elite, and I am offering you our formal assistance. Such as it is."
"We'll take it." Stryker said. He wanted to get these guys on their side before the locals said something stupid and made them leave. Or worse, made them start shooting. They were no Death Guard, but these still guys looked pretty trigger happy. It wasn't like Cross could stop Ranik and all from dragging Bren off and shooting him anyway.
"very well as the highest ranking milatry officer in the area i acept the ceasefire i think we both know the enclave are a much biger problem as for tenkage you have to ask the elder"
(Glad to see some people care for me, as for Ranik, Bren is willing to be put on Trail, he wants to make amends to him)
"I understand Ranik, for now, lets put our differences aside and take out the Enclave" Bren holds out his hand to shake Raniks Hand
Jason and Eliz look at Bren, they wonder if Ranik is gonna shoot him (he is a ghoul and Ranik is Brotherhood (sorta)
Before Ranik does anything he turns around and holds his pistiol to the to the Skyler who is using a Stealth boy
Ranik: HANDS UP!
Skyler deactivates it and bows
Skyler: Smart man, no wonder the Data in the Enclave have said great things about you, Skyler former Enclave Chimera
Dom frowned to himself as he picked his gun back up and holstered it. So now they were accepting the aid of weirdos using the same sort of technology as the Enclave who seemed to be quite eager to kill that Bren guy, and there were former Enclave among them? Dom couldn't decide if that was bad or good. He cast Skyler an uneasy glance before jogging over to the town barracks to stock up on ammunition and grenades before the attack. Before the attack. That was the terrifying thing about those V-Birds - they could show up at any time, and the only sign was the rapid thum-thum-thum of their mechanical wings about ten seconds before they touched down. These Outcast guys had made that abundantly clear.
He saw that there was a queue outside the barracks. Dozens of people, Arroyo civlians mostly and some travellers, were lining up outside. Near the entrance were two NCR officers, one of whom was speaking to the people in the queue and the other was searching through several crates and, after the first one had finished speaking to them, handing a gun to a civilian, one at a time. For some reason, the sight of this made Dom smile. Even though most of the people in that line were going to die, they were willing to do so for their home. Dom stepped past the line and into the barracks.
Inside there was a similar scene. Uniformed soldiers, like him, were queueing up to recieve munitions from the requisitions officer. Dom joined the line silently, making a mental note to stock up on 7.62mm AP rounds.
Stryker sat on a barrel, watching the Outcasts going through some sort of pre-battle drill, checking weapons and armor. With these human tanks and their Whirly , Arroyo might just survive this attack. Bren Tenkage, bringing destruction with him wherever he goes (maybe he has the Pariah Dog following him). Daniel Stryker, Enclave deserter. Wallace Ranik, Brotherhood Outcast. The Chosen One, 'nuff said. There was some serious wham in terms of individual combatants on Arroyo's side, but in terms of general soldiery, the Enclave were head and shoulders above anything Arroyo or the NCR could throw at them. Stryker knew that the better fighters: himself, the Outcasts, Skyler, Leach, and possibly the Claws, would need to be right where they were needed. Otherwise, the Enclave would make a breakthrough, and all they'd need to do would be to expand the gap. Then, Arroyo would fall. Stryker pushed the thought to the back of his mind. Defeatist ramblings. He used to shoot people for that kind of crap.
(i'm thinking of making an Outcasts, mind if I make an Outcast who would join Bren? Someone to represent the Outcasts in Bren's already mutiple group organization)
In the distance they here an explosion
SKyler: Looks like some unlucky bastard has set off my mines
Skyler grins and he looks almost feral, his blood lust has grown and he is ready to cut up some enclave
A solider brings some bad news to Fielding (To even the tide)
SolideR: Sir, bad news. One of the recon 'Birds reported that there's Crusade forces heading in this direction, so we've had to dispatch 2 of the 3 batallions that were meant to be helping us to deal with them...
"What? The Crusade? I thought I'd heard the last of those hypocrite assholes back in D.C.. HighCom better need two battalions to deal with them, because we're running low on troops as it is. Good work, soldier." Fielding said, concluding it with his customary compliment. The soldier nodded and saluted, before returning to the duties. The Crusade? That made things somewhat more difficult. Their numbers were stretched as it is. At least the Birds were still flying in with supplies. Regardless of how many troops they had, they would devastate the NCR's forces, he knew it, but they had one advantage over the Enclave's: Numbers. A single ant could be stepped on without fuss, but a hundred of them would be chewing holes in your boots after you'd crushed a few of them. Fielding frowned as he sat in the Command Tent, drawing up new plans, taking into account the new loss of forces.
Bren was ina War room, talking about how to plan on how to takeo n the Enclave, Stryker, Skyler, and Dejan arealso in the room as well as others
Bren: I will aid everyone in the Defending f the town, Skyler will be willing to help with the Infiltration
After giving his two cents, which centred around being prepared, Stryker stepped outside to drill the locals in effective anti-Enclave combat doctrine. The people were surprisingly uncurious about the source of Stryker's in-depth knowledge of the Enclave's tactics and capabilities. Nonetheless, though they were eager to learn, they were let down by their inexperience, naiveté and learning capacity.
Stryker decided to take a break from combat drills and lectures on the foe, instead joining some tribals who had fled to the town for safety in their war dance. Stryker was as pathetic at the war dance as they were at learning how to fight trained soldiers, and eventually a young tribal girl took him aside so his lack of rhythm and dancing ablility wouldn't jinx them in some way.
Stryker then took to polishing his weapons and sharpening his knives. He held out his guns, checking iron sight alignment, at the same time scattering a group of tribals who didn't know what he was at. Then he took a look at a young soldier's weapons. They weren't in mint condition, but they weren't bad. Stryker really didn't like the idea of this youngster following him around. Stryker was going to be in the thick of the heaviest fighting, where this fella, no more than eighteen would be killed sure as water is wet.
"Cap for your thoughts?" Bren asks Surprising Stryker
"Hope I didn't scare you, so ready to fight back ?" Bren aks holding 2 nuka colas, one was out for Stryker
Dom smiled faintly to himself as he took part in yet another combat drill. The one he'd been in earlier had been led by that Stryker fellow. The amount he knew about the Enclave was interesting and slightly worrying simultaneously, but he knew that the few techniques he'd picked up from him would come in handy. The equipment he'd recently acquired would also help. He'd been issued six grenades, four frags and two of these strange ones called Pulse Grenades, which would apparently help against the Enclave's robots and their Power Armour, along with six mags of armour-piercing rounds for his FN FAL and three more for his 14mm pistol.
But what he was really pleased about was the extra Combat Armor he'd been issued - plating on the wrists and the thighs of his Leather Armor, and heavy boots. Although he knew that it wouldn't fair too well against the Enclave's energy weapons, the extra weight he was hauling around when he moved felt strangely reassuring. He recalled a quote he'd been told back when he was training, said by some commander guy thousands of years before the Great War - "The purpose of armour is not to protect, but to make the wearer think he is protected," or something along those lines. Dom couldn't agree more in this situation.
(For reference, the quote was attributed by Alexander the Great. I know I may have gotten it slightly wrong, but hey, Dom's memory's fuzzy.)
"My thoughts come at ten caps a go." Stryker joked, opening the Nuka Cola with his teeeth. Bren, disgusted at that, opened his own with a knife.
"We'll need some serious miracle to get out of this alive, much less intact. I know full well that the Enclave are slow to wake, but when stirred, they can shred anything that crosses their path." Stryker mused. "We'll need to hit hard, hit fast, and more importantly, not get hit back. We're the small-fry this time. We're punching out of our weight bracket, and I don't think this will go smoothly at all."(I g2g)
"Stryk, I know what you mean, but we can't let everyone go down and let them kill them. We have the advantage of land, we can win this. If we try we can win" Bren said he wanted to seem more likea Hero
"But you're right, the Enclave are powerful, but we have Skyler, he can even the tide, JAson, Eliz, you and me, we all can help, the Enclave only learned military but we learned to Survive the Wasteland"
--Cerebral plague 01:40, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Leslie and the NCR patrol he was with was under heavy fire. Several of the men had died, and now only him, the commander, and three others were left. There was eight Enclave left though, and they had the advantage. The commander had a grenade that he chucked, blowing off one's arm and the several others were presumed dead. They were now even, four of the NCR and four Enclave. Leach ran over, leaving cover before getting shot in the leg. He managed to get with in shotgun range, and blew off one of the Enclaves leg with his Metal blaster, and another had his chest blown to bits. A NCR troop shot the last one, killing him with several shots to the chest. Scavenging them for ammo, Leach found some, and went back to the patrols captain. "Good job civilian. We lost some good men today, so I need you to carry Jenkins, and I'll take Williams. The rest, well there isn't much left of them." Leach and the group started heading back to town. That patrol was larger then the others the group had saw, and they were lucky they all hadn't died. It seemed they would attack soon, they had seen forces gathering, and there was probably more Enclave to come.
Stryker shook his head. So naive. The Enclave had been around longer than Stryker cared to think about. Since before the bombs dropped. They had watched the world burn, and then heal They knew the Wasteland and its horrors as well as anyone here. The Enclave forces attacking them were veterans. Stryker had probably trained a few of them in his time. Bren thought that these people knew the Wasteland better than the Enclave. He thought wrong. They might know every square inch of the land around where they lived, but the Enclave had knowledge of the whole country. If they wanted to commit the resources, they could just set up artillery and pound Arroyo to dust from miles away.
"Bren. We'll need to do more than try. I know you've got your metaphorical feet planted on the metaphorical ground. But your metaphorical head is up in the metaphorical clouds. Which are apparently made of metaphorical Jet." Stryker said. "Skyler will not even the balance. He can bleed and die just like you and me. Don't look at me like that! You know in your heart that I'm right. You know we need one hell of a good day to pull this off, and right now, this day is looking like a hangover with all the bells and whistles."
Fireman0504 Sorry Bren my man, the Outcasts at this point are no longer an independent faction, nor a wasteland faction. Quick rundown: They are the Airborne wing of the Western Brotherhood of Steel. after capturing14 Crusade Vertibirds. Ranik is in command of them now after being promoted to Protector. They are allowed to keep Outcast ranks and traditions alive, but are not an independent force. So getting a soldier to desert Ranik's unit would be quite impossible. Not to mention the animocity that Ranik and his men still hold toward Bren himself. Sorry bud.
Ranik walked up to the man who'd introduced himself as Daniel Stryker. "Stryker," he said, "I've met someone like you. Back in D.C., out east. You seem to know exactly what you're doing. That is good. You seem to be instrumental in keeping this rabble in line." Ranik didn't mean to sound condescending, though, he'd been re-engrained into the Brotherhood's view. He could tell Stryker was something more than just a mere Merc. "I don't know what you mean, Ranik," Stryker said, coldly and firmly. "You do," said Ranik, "I will not persecute you for it. It's how you carry yourself. It's how I can tell." Ranik extended a hand to Stryker. "I'll fight by your side," said Ranik firmly. He was flanked by his four Outcasts. "We will fight by your side." Ranik corrected himself. Ranik had hand-picked the best of his Outcasts to join him here. Veterans of a dozens of battles they had fought together. Each bore scars and each bore honor as an unmistakable testiment to their status. Stryker could sense in these men something more than mere "Brotherhood Outcasts." Ranik was armed with his Combat Shotgun, his mainstay of weaponry. Hal Carter, Samantha Vain, Lisa Colby, and Garnet Finley were the Outcasts with him. Each carried a minigun primarily supplemented with his or her weapon of choice. Carter, along with his heavy weapon, carried his usual armament: Combat Shotgun, SMG, and a Ripper. Vain, outfitted in the Outcast MR-6, carried along with her minigun carried her Zhu-Rogn, an SMG, and a Chinese Assault Rifle. Colby carried, along with her minigun, an AER9 Laser Rifle. Finley also carried an AER9. Stryker looked the Outcasts up and down. Ranik, still with his hand outstretched said, "do you accept our formal and personal alliance?"
"Straight up Ranik." Stryker gave the BlackOps version of ten-four, while shaking the Outcasts hand. He could tell that this guy wasn't a fan of the locals, so he tried some of his classic bolshy humour. "A Mutant, a Ghoul and a Tribal walk into a bar. The bartender looks at them and says: Get the fuck out."
The Outcasts laughed. Thankfuly, Stryker had the tact not to tell the one about Maxson and the chicken. That and he doubted that anyone in this town other than him knew what a chicken was. These people had fought the Enclave before, Stryker could see it in them. They all had that fire that anyone who saw the Enclave destroy everything in their path had. But Stryker had the fire that anyone who had seen a Brotherhood Paladin destroy all in its path as well. Stryker was a little annoyed with himself for siding with these people immediately. Of course, it wasn't like this guy idolized Kruger or anything. Stryker hoped.
"So, Ranik, what the hell do you call that?" Stryker asked, pointing at Vain in her MR-6.

"That's racist." A random person who signed up just to have some fun said.(its cool about Ranikl, and his soliders, thanks for telling me dude)
Bren walked out and he foudn Skyler preparing to fight with the Stealth Squad, it was 2 Wastelabnders wh owere good with Stealth boys, and Skyler as the leader
Bren: Skyler, be careful]
Skyler: Bren, don't foprget what I am, I'm a Demon created bya devil, but that Devil gave me too much knowledge, so I fought back
Skyler grined as the Squad turned o nthe Stealthboys and walked out
Bren: Alright, everuyone who is Guarding the Town, Prepare yourseolf, Snipers head to the Towers, Riflemaen, to the ground level, Missle launchers at thetowers, Aim for the gorund where Enclave Stand, before firing make sure we don't have friendlys
Bren gave the orders as everyone prepared to fight, Ranik Looked at him andn oticed Bren had matured a bit, not too much but he could tell Bren is more a man then last time they met
Fniff1 14:25, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Dejan was in a very weird dream. He dreamt that none of this happened. Like,Nothing at all.
No mister handy's
No 2077 war
Not even anything resembling the world he lived in. Just.....Something else.
Stryker grunted as he walked over to the small detatchment he had been assigned. He walked through the unit of young men, delivering a few slaps to backs, giving a few words of encouragement, straightening a few collars and passing around a few jokes. They were all afraid. That was a good thing. If a soldier wasn't a little shaken before going into battle, then they were nuts. And no one needed them around.
He moved his people to the building they had decided to hold up in. Stryker had ensured it was readily stocked with ammunition and meds, and had set up a few tripods for sniper rifles and big guns. Bren's plan of having people on ground level in the plazas was heavily flawed, but the people liked the plan, and Stryker had needed to ask the Elder personally to let his detatchment hole up in this building. All because Bren had escaped the Enclave, and said that the Enclave attack force would be beaten and destroyed. His soldiers moved up to the second floor of the building. It was some sort of sandcrete common house. The place had a commanding view of the main gates and the town square, as well as the town hall, where the Elder and his guards would be holding out.
"Right boys, today is a good day for someone else to die. These bastards are trying to burn your homes, prostitute your wives and daughters, kill your fathers and brothers, and enslave your sons. How about we let 'em know that we're not an easy target. They're strong men, but they're led by strutting fools and arrogant hypocrites. If you get a shot at Fielding, take it, he's the only one out there who knows what a fight the Enclave forces are in for. Lets deprive them of their one useful commander." Stryker said. The soldiers looked around at each other, smiling and nodding in agreement.
(Bingo, Honda was sent to Help with Arryo, but Honda doesn't carea botu Wars or battles, Just killing Jacob and Skyler, whioch is his flaw)
Honda came downa Bird and Wal;ked to fielding
"Honda of Special Forces and Unconventional Warfare Corps at your Service, I'm here to help out with the battle" He says witha low almost sinister voice (like gaara in the American Naruto )
"I'm here to make sure you do the roder right, I have been givin permission to kill you if you mess up, or so my suppiors tell me" He adds (change if you want, makes Fielding little scarred)(Sorry I'm off this morning)
Bren was l;ooking into the distance, snipers were eready to fire, Skyler was heading into some Ruins to ambush some Enclae soliders (which is where Honda will be heading)
Bren thoughts: This will bea tough battle, now all we can do is pray to wht ever god there is
Eliz walksed to Bren and looked at him
Bren: Oh hey Elizibeth
Eliz blushed a bit, no one calls here that often
Bren: If we survive this, I want you to know, that I want to be with you for the rest of my life, I love you, and I want you to know this
They share a kiss and Ranik who was watching smiles a bit beneath his Power Armer, of course he isn't gonna stop them, love is love
Stryker watched as the world moved in slow motion below him. Bren and the Feral girl kissing. Stryker chuckled. He and his Ex-Wife had that at the start of the marriage. Then her overbearing mother started to erode the relationship. Then Stryker had been moved all over the country at the behest of HighCom, straining things even more.
He saw people saying goodbye to each other, probably for the last time. Just like he had before being sent into that valley to fight Kruger and half an army. People were crying, laughing, talking, shouting. Stryker shook his head. If he hadn't abandoned the Enclave, he would have been the one leading this attack on Arroyo. All he could do was hope that Fielding didn't have his tactical mind, or his ruthless streak, which, even now, was at least a mile wide. If Fielding was half the heartless maggot Stryker had been, then everyone in Arroyo would be dead before long.
Bren mentally prepared himself, he knew that he had to fight for his life,n o screwing around. Eliz went back int o Arryo, her and Jason would be inside the perrimeter incas4e the Enclave came.
Bren: Everyone, Today will be a day othat will be remembered, we will lose many men, but the Enclave will lose an Army, lets send these Soliders to hell where they belong, they will Ruethe day they Fought the People of the chosen!
At these words everyone cheers
(I think we need a page 4, this is really lagging)
Fireman0504 No problem there Bren. :) Glad you asked about it, because I haven't started a page for the full rundwon of what happenend after Austin and what became of the Outcasts. Teh Krush went into a little of it in Baltimore, which is where I would've tried to take the RP as far as the Outcasts status, so I figured I'd give you guys all a quick preview!
Ranik shook his head as he turned back to his squad. Of course he wasn't going to stop Bren from sharing a kiss with one of his mercs. Ranik despite his dislike for Bren, did understand love. After all, he did now have a wife and newborn son back in Lost Hills. Safe and secure with the Brotherhood, awaiting his return. Ranik smiled to himself as the thought of them crossed his mind. He looked far to his left to see Stryker leading a group of ghosty faced boys into a building. "That's where the wave will crash hardest," Ranik wsaid to his men, "and that's where it will break." I want to set up with that group. The 'Chosen One' is in the adjacent building. Remember, we are now under formal parlay and should any of you break that, friends, Brothers, comrades, I will shoot you myself." Ranik knew it would never come to that. Another reason he'd picked these soldiers was because of their brains. They were the smartest, most professional, and most controlled Outcasts his unit had to offer. Ranik did have a plan, should anything happen to them, however, each was wired to an EKG through their Power Armor. Should anyone's heartbeat stop, the rest of the Outcasts would respond by Vertibird. Production at Lost Hills had bumped the count up to 20 and with heach dropping in a squad of 10, that would be some serious hurt brought onto whomever the antagonists were. There was also the comm system, but Ranik wouldn't call unless absolutely necessary. He and his Outcasts began fortifying the area wit Mk V turrets and digging in around the buildings. A curtain of 5mm rounds like this was enough to make any infantryman, Enclave or not, think twice. Ranik smile to himself again. That was aside from each soldier's individual fighting prowess. Ranik had brought a whole squad of heroes right where they were needed.
Mick whatched as people kissed and hugged each other like it was the last time hell it probably was the last time if they failed here the rest of the NCR even his home in vegas would be destroyed.He felt he had to do something has the highest ranking NCR officer in the area so he cimbed up on to the tower at the walls.
"Men and women of the NCR if we fail today the ncr and all our homes are doomed.But we will not fail we will stop the enclave right here right now.The NCR will not fall today we will not flee we will triumph we will not fall we shall prevail.Today the enclave will fail.Fight for your homes fight for your friends fight for your family but most importantly fight for justice"
Dom listened to Cross' speech, looking up at him. Strange how he was making himself a target like that, standing up on the walls. If he was indeed the highest ranked officer in the city, then wouldn't he have had the sense to realise that the Enclave could come at any time? A sniper could easily line up a shot on the back of the poor bastard's head and poof, that'd be him gone. And in the ensuing chaos of losing the officer, the Enclave could swoop in en masse and that would be the end of Arroyo...
Alec Martinez couild tell by the look on his son's face that he was thinking about losing to these bastards. "Don't, Dom," he said reassuringly, "that sort of mindset really does not help in this sort of situation." He patted his son on the shoulder briefly and recieved a weak but uplifting smile in response, so he smiled back and looked to the rest of those standing in line with him. His brothers, uncles, cousins, nephews, everything. They'd armed and conscripted half the town for defending against this attack. Still, Alec's old uniform was still a decent fit, which was at least one thing to be happy about.
Hal Carter was mildly annoyed at the man, who fashioned himself as a wartime leader, who'd decided to paint the words "COME GET ME BITCHES" on the back of his head. He could understand that he wanted to motivate the locals, which would undoubtedly help in the coming battles, there was no dispute about that. But did he have to do it in the stupidest way imaginable? Didn't they have a normal podium or something in this town? He pushed those thoughts from his mind as he assisted Defender Finley in mounting a turret to the walls. Carter primed the weapon and checked the ammunition supply while his Brother calibrated the targetting systems. "Is it really worth spending our resources on these guys?" Finley wondered outloud. Carter, as would be expected of him, didn't respond. But after what he'd seen the Enclave do to Austin, Carter's answer was "yes".
--Brengarrett 15:56, 10 April 2009 (UTC) Bren was ready for this battle, his armer has been repaired, his leg was tightened, his weapon of choise, DCB was repaired and he had a whole supplie of ammo, Grenades (5 on him) 3 smoke grenades, and he had the people around him, ful of the Aura of hope from him
Stryker laughed at Cross, standing on the wall like a big-ass bullseye. Stryker made a crude gesture, which Cross returned with a grin, before hopping back down off the walls. Stryker looked out into the growing morning light. He watched through his rifle scope as dark, insectoid forms began to come into focus on the hills in the distance. Strange, no bombardment. Either Fielding was holding it off, or someone else was taking the reins and trying to show off the "might" of the Enclave ground forces.
Stryker started muttering the prayer to Saint Michael under his breath. He was taking it out of context, this was a physical battle, but it was calming nonetheless. Then he started to mutter his unit's mantra. "And thou shalt know us by the trail of thy dead."
Stryker looked down at where the Outcasts had set up at gound level, with turrets and makeshift barricades.
"Boys, we cover the gates, the plaza and the Outcasts. No more, no less. Shoot at something outside, and you could miss and waste ammunition. That is not an acceptable option." Stryker said, in the clipped military tone he used on recruits back in Utah. "Failure is not an option lads. We may suffer, but we must not lose."
Mick jumped down from the tower he knew it was a stupid place to give a speach but it was impresive.He walked over to dom "feeling ok kid you best be ready the enclave aren't easy to defeat"
"Yeah, I think I'm ready, sir. It's just... well, I don't think the town itself is ready for this sort of thing." Dom explained to Cross, his tone saturated with unspoken fear.
A scouting team consisting of four snipers, two heavy weapons' specialists in hefting Gatling Lasers and kitted out in Tesla Armor, and what appeared to be a bipedal tank, carrying a Gatling Laser and a BCR-4, was trudging towards Arroyo. The snipers' Scoped Gauss Rifles were loaded with explosive slugs which would make short work of any automated defences or sentries, and the Pilgram suit and its munitions would chew up anything on the ground, Sergeant Dwayne Rico thought as he piloted the hulking metal monstrosity. Still, Fielding had stressed that this team was to attempt diplomacy. Or, rather, try and coax the locals into dropping their weapons before they opened fire. And if that didn't work, the artillery would start lighting up the sky. At which point Verti-Assault Teams would swoop in and mop up the rest. Rico could isolate several flaws in the Master Sergeant's plan, but he wasn't about to point them out. And he was fifteen minutes' march from the town at this point, so he was too late now.
"Dom get a squad of men with RPG's on the walls i have a fealing the enclave might bring in tanks.Bren get a mine feild set up.you the outcasts cover the gates all we have to do is hold them long enogth for our reinforcements to arive.As far as we know thats around 2 regiments one old LV-100 Tupolev and a platon of brotherhood knights"
--Brengarrett 17:09, 10 April 2009 (UTC) "No need, Sjkyler set up some mines last night, and they should going off about-" They see the Tank being blown up (is was engulfed but still going)
"Oh crap, that ain't good, Alright BrotherH ood cover me" He shouts as he takes the mines and sets them up
Skyler and the 2 Wastelanders were walking into the Ruins near the battle, his mission was to sneak around then find Fielding and kill him
Skyler: somthing is wrong...I smell somthing
Hsi answer is the 2 staealthed Wastelanders snipeed and Skyler looks up and sees Honda witha sniper Rifle, his eyes are widened, only a Chimera or other trained people could se the Shimmer so easily
Skyler: what are you?
Fireman0504 Sorry Bren, Ranik and his men are the only Brotherhood coming. Unless something happens to any of them. Then more Airborne Outcasts will come. It's detailed in a post on Page 3
Ranik shook his head at the locals speech. Ranik was 4 seconds from peppering him with buckshot himself. He was fortunate his rallying speech didn't turn out to be just a damn show of the Enclave's sniping ability. That would further demorilize these locals. Ranik looked around. They were no soldiers. He wished he had the resources of Fairfax. Now that was a defense. A stand to stir the hearts of men. Ranik knew this would be no Fairfax. He wasn't thinking defeatist. He was thinking realistically. Ranik walked over to where Carter and Finley were finishing up with the turrets. "All set Brothers?" he said. Carter just nodded, in his way. "We are ready Protector," Finley stated. Ranik was proud of his squad. Not a doubt in their minds. He knew what they knew. The Enclave had to pay for what they'd done to the people of Austin, and indeed a hundred other places they'd seen. Ranik thought of his family. The Enclave would not break through here to Lost Hills. They would not touch his family or Brothers of Steel there. Enforcer Vain and Defender Colby walked up to him. "Ready when you are, Wally," Vain said enthusiastically. Ranik smiled inside his helmet. Samantha had still not gotten over calling him Wally. "Good," Ranik said climbing down into the dugout they'd built, "Steel be with us all."
(I ment someone to cover Bren while he sets up mines, right now I will focess on Skyler and honda)
Honda: Well Skyler, it would seem you havn't lost your edge
Skyler: Who are you
Honda: Honda, and like you I am a Chimera Honda drops the rifle and Draws his sword
Honda: I have been formed to kill you
Skyler takes off his coat to reveal his armer and he puts on his Claws
Skyler: Well then, lets do this
Honda jumps and swings the sword down and Skyler uses his Guantlet to grab the sword but the current in the siowrd shocks Skyler
Skyler groans in pain as he backs off
Honda: Whats the matter, can't take a little pain?
Skyler: You are pretty good, but I stil lhavea few trips up my sleeve
His armsa nd legs seem to grow larger as his muscles became larger
skyler: Yao Gui Rage
Skyler mvoed faster a kicked Honda right in the Chest and sent him right into a wall
Skyler: My Muscles can grow larger and make me faster and stronger, Thats my abilty
Honda gets up and cracks his next
Honda: Not bad...to bad I'm improved
He also does the same and gets behind Skyler and Slashes hi s back
Honda: Like you I can do the same, I even can control how much my mucluse can increase
SKyler gets up and runs off but then he hears a crack
Skyler: No tnow
Honda: Your muscules can't take too much stress, or else they stretch and soon break, my body can take the stress much better then you
Skyler pulls otu a smoke grenade (givin to him by Bren) and throws it down and Honda looks around
Skyler is panting and is hiding behind a pillair, he hoped that Honda didn't havea good sense of smell but he could smell him
Skyler thougts: Ok...I can smell him...he is getting distance, so think I'm-
He feels the pain of a sword in his chest and he looks up to see Honda wearing his coat
Honda: You can't smell me well because I'm wearing you'r own coat, hard to smell yourself huh?
Skyler coughs some blood and the last thing he thinks off is "Bren, I'm sorry" as nhe takes his last breath
Honda then takes the sword out and walks off, his mission is done, so he would wiat at the base for a Bird to takeh im home, he could care less about the battle all he wanted was info on Jacob to find him
Dom hurried to prepare an RPG team. There were three men with missile launchers, but there were only about twelve missiles in the armoury. They'd have to make them count. Dom was going to act as their spotter with his dad's binoculars. They sat positioned on the walls, keeping a keen eye on the advancing Enclave forces.
Rico jerked forwards inside his suit as he triggered a mine. The Pilgram's mighty armour was unfazed by the small explosive, but there was an entire field out here. That could be troublesome. What astounded him was that these locals actually new how to set mines. "Halt!" He called over his radio to the rest of the scout team. "Hudson, Frost, try and disarm the mines. If you can't, we'll radio base and get an engineer out here. This really fucks with Master Sergeant Fielding's plan. We might have to just pound them with the artillery and let the Vert-teams drop in at this rate." Two of the team's snipers stowed their rifles and started rooting out and disabling the mines, one at a time. One false move and they were dead, Rico thought. This wasn't looking good.
(sorry dude, but Skyler is dead nevertheless)
Snipers fired at the Enclave who were sto[ping to take out the mines, they took out some but it was more like an annoyance on them then a threat
Bren: Don't let them get close!
Bren watches as Enclave soliders began to fallback, some did and others stayed to take out the mines
Bren: Time to show them what a "Freak" can do
"Hudson! Fuck!" Rico muttered as one of the soldiers who'd stopped to disarm the mines fell dead, a lucky shot from one of the local snipers going clean through his plexiglass visor and into his eye. "Fall back! Return fire!" He bellowed into his radio. The team he was in command of obliged quickly. "Heavy weapons units, lay down a surpressing fire on the snipers' position." He ordered, and soon enough the Gatling Laser-hefting soldiers were peppering the defending snipers with laser fire. It was hardly accurate - in fact, Rico knew that none of the lasers would actually hit the enemy - but it was enough persuasion for them to keep their heads down, and would provide cover while the rest worked to disarm the mines. "Frost, Anders, resume disarming the mines. Quickly. Coleson, keep your Gauss trained on their position. If one of them peeks their head up, take their fucking head off." The soldiers were working quickly in disarming the mines, steadily clearing a small path through the field. Soon enough, the Pilgram would be ready to proceed. Meanwhile, Rico contacted Fielding over the hulking suit's radio and began filling him in on the situation.
Bren: Send them something to cry home about
2 missles were fired and they flew at some enclave soliders, one blast almost nicked Rico pissing him off and wondering who is leading the battle
Bren: Keep your heads down, they don't want to give up
Rico jerked forwards yet again in the suit, a blast having hit the hulking Pilgram's leg. "Damnit! Since when did these tribal morons get hold of rocket launchers?!" He shouted to nobody in particular. "Everyone okay?" He asked to the rest of the team over his radio, nodding to himself after recieving reassuring acknowledgements. One of the missiles had actually caused a chain reaction, taking out a large portion of the mines. Rico began to walk forwards cautiously, and after a moment, the Pilgram suit had made it past the minefield. The soldiers followed behind him, with the three remaining snipers taking potshots at the defending forces and the heavy weapons specialists keeping them pinned down with their gatling lasers from a distance. It wouldn't be long until he could line up a decent shot with the BCR-4...
Dom helped the team reload their RPG launchers hurriedly, before returning to his crouched position with his binoculars. They had to get a good hit on that big thing before long, because its massive weapons really did not look friendly...
(Sorry My Mistake)
Bren: Fuck, didn't make a dent, Everyone Aim your shots at the Mech, take it down
Everyone obays and 2 more missles were fird at him as well as Sniper Shots, Bren even fired some of his Hunting Rifle ammo, hoping to at least help a bit

Jack Bensman ran up to the walls before taking postion near a spotter for a rocket team. Looking over the walls, he quickly dropped back down before turning to the spotter next to him.
"Private Jack Bensman. Demolotions man. Can you tell me what's going on? I'm new."
Bren noticed JAck and wmoved back (avoided a laser blast too)
"You can start by making sure we don't die, take a missle launcher and take em on" Bren says
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 22:11, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
"Oh, thats for heavy weapon gus. I just lay down mines and defuse them. And use C4."
Bren anime Sweatdrops as a he hears a man die froma laser hitting his head
"Damn it, set up some mines around the area, about 2 meters beyound this wall, I will make sure you got cover fire" Bren says slightly annoyed
--Cerebral plague 22:16, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Leach was running to his house, he just ran out of ammo, and was wondering if his safe had any left in it. He ran into the house, and started searching for the key. He then remembered that he had left it in a comic book, but he forgot which. Searching through, he skimmed through one of the pages, getting dizzy when the key fell out. Picking it up, he went and opened his safe, shortly before falling unconscious.
(here come trouble)
Bren fired some Shots at the Charging Enclave soliders, they were trying hard to fire at them but they kept coming, I mean the power armer was tough
"Actually, I think we're a little bit low on RPGs!" Dom pointed out, gesturing to the crate which was filled with a depleting supply of ballistic missiles. "We really need to get that thing down, and I mean, like, quickly. And we are seriously screwed if they send anymore of them." Dom looked back over to the advancing robot thing, then ducked as several laser bursts flew past his head. "But feel free to, like, tell us now if you have any more rockets!" He blind-fired with his FN FAL in the direction of the infantry, hoping they'd just fall over and die...
Rico grinned to himself as he lifted the BCR-4 and took careful aim at one of the sniper emplacements. The cannon whined as it began to charge up, funneling power from the ten Microfusion Cells loaded into the back. A massive blast of red light flew from the barrel, melting a decently sized hole in the walls of the town and killing several of the snipers. (Not the player-controlled characters, don't worry) Now that they'd gotten past the mines, this was all too easy...
(Ok this is gonna be a cool move)
Bren thought for a moment
"Tie a rope to a missle and fire into the Horizion"
Dm thought he was crazy but he does anyway then Bren hangs on
Bren: This is gonna bea hell of a right
Using the Missle Bren was able to fly twords the Robot and right as he was above it he let go and landed on top of it
"Takes htis asswipe" Bren shotus as he fires point blank shots into the bnack hopefully shuting it down
(I hope the move wasn't to farfetched but it works)
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 22:33, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
"Huh? Do you know that guy? I mean, he's crazy."
firing his Grease-gun towards the Encalve troopers, Jack ducked back when sefveral shots came screaming towards his head.
--Cerebral plague 22:38, 10 April 2009 (UTC)(Bren, do you know that tying yourself to a RPG is a VERY BAD IDEA, and that what you did is also impossible?)
Ranik paced behind his men (and women) as they trained their miniguns on the breach that had just been melted in the wall. "Steady Outcasts," he said calmly, despite the death and destruction of locals all around, "Weapons free, I want you to spatter anything that comes through that wall." He didn't need to tell them that. With four miniguns and four turrets covering the lone breach it would be a stiff fight. Ranik knew that they couldn't stop the Enclave with minigun fire alone. He just wanted to kill as many of them as he could before they inevitably made it through. Ranik watched Bren doing something with a rope and a missile. He hoped Bren would end up a smoking hole in the California ground. No time to think about it now. Ranik watched the breach. Any moment those Enclave suckers would just come wandering through. Perfect targets. Just a matter of moments.
"No! And I was strongly against the idea of rescuing him from the Enclave, for reference!" Dom yelled.
How the fuck did that Wastelander pull that off? Did realism just decide to take a 15 minute coffee break? Rico made jerky movements in the suit in an attempt to throw him off the top of it, eventually knocking him to the ground. But the stubborn bastard kept shooting at the back, doing severe damage to the power supply and eventually causing it to fall. Rico grunted as the suit crashed into the sand. The horrifying thing was that you needed outside assistance to get out of this thing, and the rest of the scouting team was being picked off by rockets and automatic fire. Rico yelled into his radio for reinforcements and struggled furiously in his inactive suit.
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 22:49, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
"The suits down! Give me some covering fire, and i can blow it up!"
Dom and the majority of the defending forces were keeping the Enclave soldiers, who were now in retreat, pinned. They were in no position to shoot at anyone on the ground, with their eyes and weaponry directed towards the walls. Dom nodded and gave Jack a push in the right direction, motioning for him to hurry it up. He reloaded his FN FAL and shot in the general direction of one of the gatling laser-using soldiers, the armour-piercing rounds living up to their moniker and putting the bastard down.
--Cerebral plague 23:11, 10 April 2009 (UTC)(Here comes something awesome)
"There is no need citizen!" All of a sudden, The Velvet Avenger appeared! Running out to the combat faster then a bolt of lightning! Taking out his super duper blaster pistols, he aimed and fired, vaporizing those pesky Enclave! Soon enough, he was right next to the mercenary hero Bren Tenkage! Taking out his trusty power fist, a wham and a bam and the man next to him was knocked out faster then you can say Flamingo! Soon, he and the Mercenary leader were back to back, shooting up the Enclave, the evilest people in the wasteland!
"Who the hell is that guy? And what is he wearing?" Dom asked, a rhetorical question in the highest form. He just hoped that purple-wearing dickhead would keep his head down and not block his shots on these bastards. He yanked the pin out of a Pulse Grenade, which gave a disconcerting whine as it primed. "Pulse out! Fire in the hole!" He shouted, throwing it at the feet of an Enclave soldier. It exploded in a brilliant burst of electric blue light, bringing the unlucky metal-armoured bastard to his knees. The weirdo in purple finished the disabled soldier with a brutal haymaker to the back of the head. Hadn't Dom seen a modded Power Fist like that before?
"What . . . the . . . fuck?" Stryker said, staring down at this purple-clad nutjob. Not only had he run headfirst through a battleground, he was wearing a cape. That sort of stuff was downright dangerous. That cape'd get tangled in something and he'd get shot. Stryker wasn't sure whether or not that was a bad thing. Stryker covered Bren and the Purple Pansy nonetheless. It'd be a shame not to get to talk to this crackjob after the battle.
"Assault unit, far left. Take 'em down. I want to see this battle on my roll of honour by the end of the day." Stryker called out to his unit. They opened up, tearing the soldiers just outside the walls to pieces. Then they shifted their aim back to the remaining Enclave forces in the plaza.
Then Stryker heard the sound he had been dreading. The whump, whump, whump of a Vertibird's rotors, coupled with the growl of Enclave engines. The one Ranik had arrived in hummed and hissed, but these produced a bass growl, like an enraged dog. Stryker's heart sank as a V'Bird passed overhead. It was indeed an Enclave Whirly.
(sorry for breaking the laws of physics, but it was funny)
"Do I know you?" Bren asks him as they begin to fire some and take out untis, but then they saw the ird overhead
"Uhhh....RYUN!!!" Bren shouts as the 2 run away from fire
Ranik wondered what he'd gotten into. First some psycho in a cape and now the Enclave Vertibirds. The Enclave troopers trudging through the breach were dropping easyily to the concentrated minigun fire. Ranik was pleased, but not he had to look to the sky. "Split fire!" he yelled to his Outcasts, "two miniguns in the sky, two in the breach. Take any slowing birds down!" (It is so easy to take Vertibirds down with miniguns in Fallout 3... once they are about to land... so that's Ranik's plan here) Wordlessly, Carter and Colby shifted their miniguns skyward. Ranik considered calling in reinforcements. Not yet. He didn't want to needlessly waste the lives of his men. If he needed, he would call. Carter was first to score a hit. The bird veered off, leaving a trail of smoke. Ranik smiled to himself. This was gonna be a fight.
Dom was about to erupt into whoops and cheers to celebrate their victory when, like pretty much everyone else, they looked up. One of the V-Birds flew overhead, no more than a few metres above Dom on his position on the walls. The noise was deafening from where he was. The guns fell silent, and Dom couldn't tell whether the shooting had stopped or they were just being drowned out by the noise. More of the things flew overhead, and then began evasive maneuvers above the town, presumably to avoid more RPGs. It was like watching a leaf on the wind. (lololol reference) Dom was brought back to reality as something round fell out of one of the Birds, landing on a building and blowing it apart in a massive nuclear fireball. He dropped down from the battlements and onto the sandcrete streets of New Arroyo, dashing towards cover.
Fielding smirked to hmself as he sat in one of the five Vertibirds which were circling the town. There was a certain romantic sense of honour to what he was doing, to accompany your soldiers into battle. "Keep weaving," he called over his radio, "If they see any pattern in the movement then they can get a clear shot on us." There were several acknowledgements - mumbles from the pilots, but Fielding could expect no less. Driving a 'Bird required extreme concentration. He loaded his Gauss Rifle and flexed the fingers of his left hand, which were encased in a Power Fist modified for easier holding of other weapons, then spoke again. "Continue bombing. Try and burn as many of the bastards from up here, it's less work for us." Several of the other soldiers in his 'Bird laughed at this remark.
"We're hit!" Came the shrieks of a pilot on the radio, wiping the smug grin off Fielding's face at record speed. "Going down rough! I'll try and stabilise, but I don't th--" The pilot was cut off by the noise of a loud explosion. Fielding knew what this meant. "Touch down, now! In the plaza!" He roared. So the dogs could bite.
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 00:09, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Jack was priming the C4 charge, when he looked to the sky when he heard Whirly-Birds. Of course, they did'nt fire on him, since he was just one target, not a large group of them.
Grabbing his Grease- gun, Jack sprinted into the town, looking for the corpal. Seeing the him dashing towards cover, Jack followed him.
"Corp! Wait up sir!"
The radation from the Bird falling engulfed Ben, if he had to describe it, it was like a warm bath of healing but his masked friend passed out so Bren grabbed him and the carryed him back to the Perimeter where he is met with Stryker (BTW what ever happened to Rico?)
The four remaining Birds extended their landing wheels as they met with the plaza, the doors flipping open and six soldiers in Power Armor spilling out from each of them. Fielding gestured for the group to fan out and secure the area, which they did. The cover of the buildings had kept the enemy off them for now, but they'd be attacking quickly and in swarms like cockroaches soon enough.
Dom saw that Jack was about to take a shot at one of the soldiers with his Grease Gun, but he quickly yanked him back into cover before he fired or they noticed him. "The fuck are you doing? They'll mince us in those numbers! We need to pull back, see if we can meet up with some of the other guys." He whispered, quietly but harshly as he clipped the Private on the back. The two of them crept out of cover and back into the alleyway they'd came from, heading towards the perimeter.
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 00:26, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
(He dersves it. Mu ha ha ha ha)
"Sorry, i'm new. First real engament sir."
Jack was creeping along, clonstly looking behind him in case a Encalve decied to look in this Alleyway.
Dom frowned. He hated being called "sir". It made him feel better than whoever had said it, which he knew he wasn't. His amateur psychologist mother had attributed this to his attempts to shirk the responsibilities that came with his rank. She never really made any sense these days. "Don't call me that, my name's Dom." He muttered to Jack as they swung around the corner of a building, finally putting them out of sight of the Enclave soldiers. They both let out a synchronised sigh of relief and began to move at a faster pace.
--Cerebral plague 00:32, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
The Velvet Avenger woke up, shocked and awed. Noticing the man carrying him, he punched him out, thinking that he was Encalve. "Sorry about that my fellow justice fighter! I accidently punched you in the face, thought you were one of those Enclave peoples!" Leach got up, and ran towards a landing Vertibird, yelling out the words "Stop you villainous fiends!" The first Enclave soldier got out, and looked at the man, shocked. "Look's like you need your daily dose of Justice fiend!" He punched him in the face, as he made a smirk. "Now for some good old fashioned vaporizing!" He took out the other pistols he had, shooting the rest of the Enclave before getting into the Vertibird. "You picked a wrong day to fly a large, fast moving plane buddy!" As he punched him out, and threw him out of the plane.
"Now, how the hell do I fly this thing!"
An Enclave soldier responded to the crazy man in a cape's attempt at hijacking a Vertibird by smashing the windscreen with the stock of his rifle and shoving the barrel of said instrument in his face, barking threats. His response consisted of being unceremoniously punched out as the Velvet Avenger dispensed more heroic one-liners. Soon enough, five Enclave soldiers were aiming at him, providing a large distraction...
Bren get behind the Solider and shout " HEY LOOK AT ME"
They were dumb enough to do that and then they got a daily dose of pain (couldn't resit)
"Goodteam work,m now let me do some clean up" Bren said
As he shot the Enclave soldiers in the head, before shooting the grenade in one of the ones hands, as it blew up.
"Didn't think it do so much damage...." Bren said :"So do I know you ? You seem Familer" Bren said looking at him
--Cerebral plague 00:52, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(Bren, I edited your post slightly, I want The Velvet Avenger to take a shot at riding Vertibirds)
"Probably not citizen, but hop in! Let's take a ride in one of these things!" Bren obliged getting in,
Bren:So, you know how to ride one of these things?
The Velvet Avenger: Nope, but it can't be that hard!
Bren panicked, and looked like he would jump out of his skin. "Don't worry citizen, now let's ride!" He pressed a random button, as the vertibirds female voice came up, "Preparing to drop Nuclear payload." The velvet avenger and Bren immediately started smashing every button in the Vertibird, before they finally got to "voice commands". "Stop the Nuclear payload! The computer replied saying "Nuclear payload, undetonated".
TVA: Ok, now lift off!
Vertibird: Lifting off
TVA: Now, go east!
TVA:I said go east!
Vertibird: Going North
TVA: I said East!
Vertibird: Going west-East
TVA: That's impossible!
(That was too funny, TVA is so funy)
Bren just was scared as the Bird somehow made every commond messed up
"Uhhh Fire on Firendlys?" Bren says
Vrtibird: Fireing on Firendlys, are you sure
Soon Enclave soliders were running from the Rouge Vertribird
One of the Enclave's engineers witnessed the spectacle then lifted his arm, which had a Pip-Boy-like computer strapped to it, and typed in a code. Immediately the response the TVA and Bren recieved was "Remote override initiated. Landing." The Vertibird's miniguns stopped firing, and the craft began to lower towards the ground, the rotors beginning to slow and eventually stopping. Soon, every gun in the plaza was aimed at the cockpit. Fielding muttered to himself incoherently in frustration, then raised his voice to a shout. "Step out of the bird, mutie! That's government property you're failing to hijack!"
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 01:05, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
"Huh. This is the craziest battle ever."
"How do you know? It's your first engagement, remember... but, uh, yeah, ditto. I agree." Dom said, nodding in agreement.
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 01:10, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
"Well, i listended to the vets, and i did'nt hear of a battle that involed hijacked Vertibirds and Superheros. Think we should help them?"
"Ok Listen, here is the plan...."
Bren walks out with his hands up
"Alrightyou winm, I admit Ghouls are weaker then Humans....BUT THEY ARE SMARTER!" Just then the Velvet Avenger Jumps out witha Missle Launcher (You can add the Campy Line for this part, the plan was just as you think it is)
Several plasma and laser bursts heated the missile launcher up to a dangerous temperature, forcing the Velvet Avenger to drop it before he could shoot. "No, Tenkage, they're not." Fielding explained.
"... Nnnnnnah. Ya got popcorn? This is interesting." Dom muttered sarcastically as he lined up a shot on one of the soldier's heads, peering through the thermal imaging scope on his FN FAL. He hoped that the first shot would penetrate, otherwise he was rather screwed. In fact, even if he did kill the soldier in one, he'd probably be shot to bits before he could hide. Inhaling deeply, he squeezed the trigger, then shot back into cover behind the building without checking whether or not he'd killed him, or even hit.
Bren sighs as he raises his ahands again into the Air and solider sourounded him and TVA
Fielding looked at bren with Comtemp
--Cerebral plague 01:24, 11 April 2009 (UTC) (Campiness for the win)
"Time for some Explosive moves!" The Velvet Avenger threw a mini nuke tied to a grenade at group of guys, before rolling to the left, as Bren jumped on his hands as The Velvet Avenger gave him a lift so jumped twice as far as he normally would. Bren jumped the man with the Pipboyish object, as The Velvet Avenger threw the mini nuke to the group on the west taking aim at him. They then ran away, before the Mini Nukes he set to blow exploded in the vertibird, killing some of the Enclave in the area. They then both did a high five, it was pretty rad.
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 01:28, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
"No, but i got a picture of my girlfriend."
Jack was still standing in the middle of the street when a stray peice of shrapnel hit Jack in the head, killing him. And so, the Short life of Jack bensman ended with him lying in the middle of a street, sharpnel stuck in his head.
(All people who mention or show a picture of their girlfirend gets killed)
Bren looks at Fielding and Holds uip his Hunting rifle at him
"Alright, tell me who has the advantage now, you or the guy with the rifle and his firend with one more mini nuke?" Bren asks
While Fielding was distracted by a soldier apparently being killed by a sniper, the freak in the purple and Tenkage proceeded to pull all sorts of wicked shit on his unit. It all happened ridiculously fast, with several mini-nukes detonating, taking out nine soldiers and destroying one of the Vertibirds, damaging another. Fielding let out a growl as he turned to face Tenkage. "I do, you dumb fuck! I'm the one with fourteen fucking armed soldiers and reinforcements on the way!" He was bluffing about that last thing, but it seemed to catch Bren off-guard. He took advantage of this by throwing a grenade at the two Wastelanders, causing them to dive for cover, then calling out to his men. "Move it! In there!" Fielding shouted as he pointed to a random, sturdy-looking sandcrete building. The Enclave soldiers dashed into the building, with some remaining outside to guard against any more Wastelanders. Fielding, meanwhile, switched on his helmet's (relatively) long-distance radio and got in touch with Navarro.
"This is Master Sergeant Fielding taking part in the assault on New Arroyo, we are sustaining heavy casualties and need backup! Requesting four more Vert-teams with turrets and Sentry Bots - over!"
"Haha! Did you see that? That was awesome, man, I tell ya! Hahahaha! Woo!" Dom shouted as he saw the explosions. He was surprised that a similar reaction was not heard from Jack, and he glanced in his direction and saw the poor bastard lying there. He let out the only thing he could say in that sort of situation:
Honda walked into the building where he saw a somehwat Scared fielding
"How pathatic, I thought you were strong....pity I now have to kill you for being a weak link in the Enclave Command" (notice his loyalty to the Enclave and his hatred of weakness) He then draws his sword
Bren and TVA ran back to the Safety of the Permeter where they are greeted by Dom and everyone else
Bren: Did you see that?
"What the fuck? Weapons trained on him, people!" Fielding shouted. The soldiers responded by aiming their weapons at Honda. "Just who the hell do you think you are?" He asked, pointing at Honda and stepping forwards. The Chimera responded by swinging his sword towards Fielding, which would have taken his arm off if he didn't jerk it backwards quick enough. This asshole had managed to scratch the plating of his armour, though, so he decided he wasn't fast enough. Fielding threw a Power Fist-clad punch for Honda's face, who jumped backwards to avoid it. "Hold it right there! Men, spill his brains if he moves."
Dom was kneeling at the side of Jack's corpse, peering at the picture of his girlfriend. "Man, she is fine! I am so gonna get the rebound."
Dom was kneeling at the side of Jack's corpse, peering at the picture of his girlfriend momentarily before putting it in his pocket. "Don't worry, man, she'll know." Dom said between pathetic sobs as he nudged the dead Private's corpse. He glanced up at Bren and nodded slightly.
--Weston "Henchmen" Foster 01:52, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Jack emitted the last of his death grugles, before springing up to life suddleny.
"DAMN YOU TANDI, DAMN YOU!"
Then Jack closed his eyes for the last time.
Bren goes to the body and closes his eyes
"May this young mans soul find his ways to Digara's relm" Bren says as a form of last rites (His relgion will be explained later)
"Don't worry his life will not have been lost for nothing" Bren says
Honda looks around
"5 Soliders, pathatic, you retreat when you should fight, I'm surprised, you sdeem to hate that young man yet you don'tfight him...you don't deserve life" He says then his legs seem to get bnigger
"Dance of the Deathclaw (not anime it is his own Sowrd Style) He then began to move around quicklylike a Deathclaw doing eltricle slashes at the solider until Fielding is left
The barrels of the Outcasts' miniguns burned red-hot. Still Holed up in their dugout, it seemed the Enclave had stopped trying to send infantry to the breach, which was now nearly clogged anyway with bodies, both local and Enclave. Holding true to their orders, Ranik and his men shot anyone and anything attempting to storm the breach. Now the fighting had spread to a different area. Ranik knew ther were some Enclave troops held up in a building across the square. They'd been pinned there since the Vertibirds had dropped them. He saw movement in the breach again. Colby spooled her minigun sending a burst of fire into it. A local staggered to his knees, then dropped. Ranik shook his head. Only orders. They wanted this area held, and the Outcasts held it. The locals shouldn't be so stupid as to come through here. Ranik turned to Carter. "Keep those Enclave pukes pinned in there, I'm going into the building here to see what Stryker is up to or if he knows what's going on." Protector Ranik then climbed up out of the dugout and went inside, heading upstairs to see Stryker.
Carter nodded, keeping his minigun aimed at the windows of the building. There was very little activity in the doorway. Strange...
"The bastards had mini-nukes! It was either I retreated, or I lost my men! Who are you to judge me, anyway, jackass?!" Fielding bellowed. The strange man with the katana responded by systematically executing each and every one of the soldiers except him. Fielding attempted to stop him each time, but he was too slow. He could do nothing but throw missed punches and watch. And now, the bastard was standing there. He was smiling at him. Mocking him. He'd just killed the boys that were depending on Fielding to keep them alive, and now he was mocking him? Fielding burst forwards at incredible speeds for somebody in Power Armor, his augmentations keeping him going, and threw a catastrophic uppercut towards the man. Honda hadn't expected this from Fielding and was caught off-guard, and was sent tumbling backwards into a wall.
"You think you can kill MY MEN and get away with it, you bastard?! Huh?! Well, NO YOU FUCKING CAN'T!"
"Fielding, you are a strong human, but that is all you are, I'm a Metahuman, a human with the skills of a create of the wasteland...so then you will die now" (I think his voice is more like Kimimaro from NAruto, he seems more like it) He charged forward and swung the sword into his should, the Shock went Through Fielding's System shorting the Arm part of the system making his right arm jst about useless
--Cerebral plague 02:29, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
The Velvet Avenger was hopping around, high fiving NCR soldiers. He and Bren did the coolest thing ever back there. All of a sudden, he climbed a rooftop, and ran off, disappearing some how.
Fifteen minutes later
Leach woke up in a room near the sniper tower. His memory was foggy, so he deducted that a sniper had missed him, hitting the window slightly below him, and a large chunk of rock flew up and hit him. He went back to sniping, confused and bored.
Fielding yelled out as the sword sank into his right shoulder, swinging his Power Fist into Honda's face to knock him away. He tried to move his arm, but could do so only limply. This only made Carl angrier. With an incoherent shout approaching the roar of some wild animal, he lifted his Gauss Rifle and started firing at Honda. This guy kept telling him, he was going to die. No, you're not, Carl, he told himself. He couldn't die, after all he'd been through. Especially at the hands of some fritz like this. He wouldn't allow it. He had to keep going, for the memory of his men, for Lisa and for Andy, and for the Enclave. (inappropriately timed dramatic internal monologues for the win)
Pretty much all of the attacking Enclave soldiers seemed to be dead at this point, but there was definitely something going on inside that building...
(no he hit the Shoulder, not he human shoulder, just the Armer their is a part of the Armer that is onyl machine, that is what he hit, biut in power armer cripple the MAchine you basically cripple to part itself)
Honda was holding Carl by his neck, and Carl Saw not a human, but a Demon looking at him
A voice cried out: Realse him Honda
(This is where the Reinforcements are in)
Everyone in the town was celebrating that Bren did all this, thanks to that crazy move, their spirits rose and their hope grew, they felt like the battle was won (it isn't but it is a victory)
Bren: Everyone, we are not through yet, but soon we will, and we shall make a dent int othe Enclave History
Everyone's cheering was brought to an abrupt stop as another two VTOLs descended landed on top of the roof. Strangely enough, these seemed to be one of the transport Vertibirds, rather than the offensive models that had attacked the town earlier. It was impossible to get a clear shot on them due to the position they had landed, which was just out of sight to those standing at the foot of the building. Carter observed, recalling the design of the 'Birds. They weren't reinforcing the attack; evacing the survivors.
"Release him, Honda!" Came a voice. Honda? That was the dumbest name Fielding had ever heard! He surpressed a laugh for a moment, while the strange man let go of his throat. Fielding responded by landing a strong Power Fisted punch to the back of his head, dazing him if not knocking him out, shouted "FUCK YOU!" then began running towards the staircase. At the top of the roof, there was a pair of transport-model Vertibirds and several soldiers standing around them. The rotors were still spinning, so they obviously had the intention to leave quickly. "Where the hell are the rest of the Birds? I asked for four Vert-Teams and Sentry Bots and--" Fielding's angry speech was interrupted by a man in a trenchcoat and strange gasmask who Fielding instantly recognised. "We're leaving, Master Sergeant," The man explained in a calm tone. Fielding felt like punching him, but instead hurriedly boarded one of the 'Birds, followed by the rest of the soldiers. He'd have to explain the incident with the freak to Colonel Vasquez later...
(I suppose that's it for the attack then. Bren, you can say that Honda got on the other Vertibird}
--Cerebral plague 02:57, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(Mind if Leach shoots the sword out of his hand?)
Leach had a clear shot of the man coming into the Vertibird. He didn't fire, due to another vertibird was still there, and the more important of the survivors would probably come up the stairs first. He soon realized that he was the only one with a clear shot, and made a mental note. Waiting for who ever was going up second.
Fireman0504 Awe... I was gonna swiss cheese Honda's god-modded demon-ass back to hell with 4 miniguns soon as he walked out of the building...
Ranik came back down into the dugout to see the two Enclave Vertibirds ascending after picking up the surviving troops. Ranik's Outcasts had done their job here and the Enclave had felt the sting. They'd be back, however. "Repair your weapons and get some rest," Ranik told the Outcasts, "we hold this position."
--Cerebral plague 03:41, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Leach took aim at the second Enclave man to exit the building. In the building, he was untouched by wind so he didn't take it into account of his shot. Aiming for his chest, Leach shot with the energy sniper rifle he found on one of the Enclave. He missed, and shot his hand, shooting the sword out of his grasp, and off the building. Leach cursing under his breath, watched as he rushed into the vertibird.
Stryker limped out of the building. He was getting too old for this shit. An Enclave scout of some kind had climbed in through a window and tried to knife him. Stryker had strangled him with a belt, but not before being stabbed in the thigh, calf and shoulder. If that little runt hadn't tried that shit, Stryker would have pulled off a beauty of a shot at Fielding and all, right through the window, into his cerebellum. And who the fuck was that other fella in the room? Some freak called Hyundai or something.
"Ranik, good to see you're still alive." Stryker called out to the Outcast. Real soldiers. Stryker was infinitely more at home with the likes of these Outcasts than with the tribals and villagers around here. Maybe he could apply for honorary membership. Or would his status as Ex-Enclave BlackOps damage his standing with the Brotherhood? Well, he had helped the Vegas Brotherhood fight off the Enclave in Nevada. Maybe that would count for something.
Bloody hell the enclave wern't messing around today he saw stryker speaking to the outcasts "stryker i have good news the ncr has decided this would be the perfect opertunity to test out there new weapon it's being brought in by rail (in van buren it mentions powder gangs and railways) aparently it's some sort of vehicle" he hered a steam wistle "that must be it" mick ran to the railway track in the town there was a standered ncr transport wagon with what looked like a normal steam locamotive with tracks and a set of misile launchers and verious other guns mainly rpg's and miniguns mounted on it the driver lept down "nice isn't she i call her collosus you won't fail with her watching your back"
--Cerebral plague 16:55, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(Vegas, just try to realize the stupidity of what you just wrote)
--Cerebral plague 17:40, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(Err, what are catapiler tracks? Google didn't give me an answer)
(ok Sorry sorry, I will not use Honda so muchm, he is only looking for Skyler and JAcob, he kileld Skyler already, now Jacob is next...but who will win ?)
--Cerebral plague 17:56, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(oh, well that's fine then)
Bren loosk around and he doesn't see SKyler
Bren: Hey JAson where is Skyler? --Cerebral plague 19:43, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Jason: I don't know, I thought he met up with you
Bren: Which way did he go?
The Scene with Bren cuts to him and JAson and 2 Wastelanders running to the Ruins Skyler went and to Bren horror he saw the corpse of Skyler
Bren loks at Skyler the nhe closes his eyes and says prayar to him ,then he takes the Guantlet and he was going to create a memorial to him, it was the least he could do at this point
Bren: Come on, we need to tell dejan and Eliz
Jason: Skyelr was a good man, may his soul rest in peace
Bren and JAson headed backto Arryo where everyone was still celebrating
(BTW i most likly won't be on tommorow, due to it being Easter)
--Cerebral plague 19:43, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(I'd like to point out that Skyler had slaughtered hundreds of innocent people for no reason. So, killing him is more of a good thing then bad.)
Leach walked out of the building he was sniping from, and saw Bren and the mutant walking towards it. "Hey man, why are you so sad? We won, we drove the Enclave out of town!" Bren looked at him for a few seconds, before looking back at the ground, "A friend of mine died..."
(Skyler was Bren friend, if Bren has a firend he doesn't care the person's past)
Bren sighs then he smiles
"Ddi you see the Vevlet Avenger? him and I teamed u nd took out the Enclave" Bren said trying to be happy
--Cerebral plague 19:57, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(But, he murdered a hundred innocent people)
"No, I was sniping when some debris hit me and knocked me out. I have no idea when though. I shot an Enclave soldier in the hand, his sword flew off the building. If it helps, I might of just injured who ever stabbed your friend.
JAson help up the sword
"I found it" He said "I wondered who this was owning thi" He said
Bren: Huh it has a Symbol for the Ecnlave on it
It was the symbol for the Enclave weapons on the hilt
"Maybe my firend back in the DC area knows it (It Jacob BTW)
"Anyway I think you are pretty tough, want to join my group with Dejan and Me? You could be useful to the team" Bren says holding out his hand to shake L:each's hand
--Cerebral plague 20:20, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
"I used to know Dejan. He and me were friends when we were kids. However, we had a bit of a falling out a while ago. OK it with him, and I'll be happy to join." Leach looked at the sword the mutant had, it was probably worth much more then a bag of caps. (sell it to Marshall Rascón!) "Well, I need to go get finish packing up my stuff. I was planning on leaving this place soon anyway."(BTW this is a hint to who Leach really Is)
"Oh hey, you got some metal on you" Bren says, as he takes off chunks of scrap matal out of his hair, and Bren noticed some of it was the same color as the Vetri bird, but then he shruged it off
Honda was sitting n a Vetribird looking at an Shadowed man
???: you did well, you killed that Rouge Skyler, you did the Enclave pruod, but I'm not assumed to see you attacking on of my commanders
Hona: HE wanted to reatreat when he clearing could have fought back
??: Be that as it may, if it wasn't for the fact of your clearance, I would have you shot, then fed to mutants
Hodna: Also, ask the people at your Tech lab to make me another sword, some Sniper shot my hand
HE holds up his hand which is bleeding
Honda: I seem to have lost amy sowrd
???: Fine, I will explain to fielding that you were a special Ops, who had some stress, and that you are very sorry about what you did, and I expect you to apoligize to him when you meet back at HQ
Honda: Of course Sir, and tell my father that I hope he is doing well
???: Very well then
(I thought this woud be good closure and a hint of someone puling moe strings then we seem, someone can figure out who it is later)
9not yet, first we have to celebrate, tie some loose ends, have some people join Bren if they want to, there're still mroe things to do)
--Cerebral plague 20:29, 11 April 2009 (UTC)(Wait, are we ending the RP?)
Dom sank his repurposed entrenchment tool (how he'd been told to refer to as a shovel, back in training) into the ground and continued to dig. Around him, dozens of people were doing the same thing. It was hard enough to dig individual holes for each of the dead, but to keep each one measured out perfectly to prevent it turning into a mass grave... Dom forced those thoughts out of his head. He felt it was disrespectful to complain, even inside his own head. He stopped digging for a moment to catch his breath and glance at the battered walls of New Arroyo, and a weak smile crept across his face. They had won against the Enclave for now, but at a terrible price. When Dom found that the hole he was standing in was now almost as deep as he was tall, he climbed out and lowered Private Jack Bensman's body carefully into it. He paused to look at the picture the young soldier had taken out of his pocket moments before his death, memorising the girl's features, then allowed it to fall into the grave. He then began to dump the dirt back into the hole which was decidedly more easier than initially getting it out, flattening the mount with the bottom of his shovel before getting to work on the next one...
Fielding bowed his head as he listened to the engines and the rotors of the moving transport. He'd tried sparking conversation with one of the soldiers that had came with the evac Bird, but none of them would respond or even meet his gaze. He assumed that Creedy bastard was staring at him (well, that was the feeling he got), but he could never tell with that freaky mask of his. Carl merely stared at the floor. What did he do wrong? What could he have done better? How could he have avoided any of what happened? How would he explain the casualties to Vasquez, the soldiers' deaths to their families? That a crazy man with a medieval Japanese sword walked in and butchered them all? It was hardly the most realistic story. In fact, they'd probably accuse him of fabricating it. Carl sighed and turned his thoughts to brighter prospects. Right now, all he wanted to do was go home to his family.
Ranik walked up to where Bren was shaking Leach's hand. "It's over Tenkage," Ranik said sternly, "you must return to D.C." Bren and the Velvet Avenger looked at each other. Behind Ranik, his four Outcasts stood, weapons still ready. "The Elders do not want you bringing war to Lost Hills. My orders were to make sure you went back to D.C." Bren nodded. He recognized that Ranik was tyring to resolve this with civility and not bloodshed. Ranik would feel better when Bren was back in D.C. "Do not even think of wiping my men out here and now. If we die, more will come. The Claws will not survive a fight with the Western Brotherhood of Steel, and the New California Republic has been beaten by the Enclave, and as you can see, is in no shape to resist. Make your choice Tankage." Ranik said.
Ranik walked up to Daniel Stryker. "It was an honor fighting by your side," he said, extending a hand. Stryker shook Ranik's hand and smiled. "Is there any way to apply for membership?" he said. Ranik removed his helmet, revealing a weathered face. His brown hair was speckled with grey but his eyes were as blue as a sunny sky. He had a scar over his right eyebrow and another that crossed vertically over the extreme left of his lip, as well as one across his chin. "Would you take the oaths and uphold them?" Ranik said, "if you would take the oaths of the Brotherhood of Steel, I would gladly accept you into my division. With a recommendation from myself, you would surely be accepted. The matter at hand is, would you be willing to become a Brother of Steel." This man was a good soldier, and Ranik would be privileged to have him accept an invitation. Ranik waited in anticipation as the Outcast Vertibird began it's pre-flight checks behind him.
Bren was packing some supplies for the trip home, Dejan agreed to have LEach come (Bren threatened to take away his good bed if he didn let him join) and he was ready to the Escort home, he told Ranik he was willing to to be taken into his custody so Ranik agreed to let the Brotherhood i nthe DC area to keep an Eye on him to prove he isn't so evil
Bren turned to his team, Jason who had the comics the girl gave him, Eliz was smiling (Bren has bought a ring for her, it was only toy jewlery but it looked valubale) Dejan was smiling rady to head back, and the newest Member LEach AKA TVA somtimes had his stuff packed
Bren: Guys, it was a great adventure, but we have to head back, the DC area needs us, I told Arryo that if they ever need helpo, then to call us,m we are willing to aid them if we can
After the lttle speech Bren and hsi groupewalked to the Transport wiating for them
"Hold," Defender Carter suddenly said as the Claws entered the Vertibird, "there's nowhere near enough room for all of them. And I personally would prefer it if we didn't have that thing weighing down our seats. Might break them." He pointed out as he gestured towards Jason, his tone lined with contempt and spite. He didn't like Bren as it was, but if he was affiliating with Super Mutants now, his opinion of him had just went further down.
"If you call Mutants things, then call me a thing, since I'm part ghoul: Bren says annoyed
"IF you must we will take a caravan with an escort" Bren says trying to comprimise
If Carter was a more excitable person, he would have jumped for joy when Bren said he would take a caravan on foot. He wasn't, though, so he merely stood there, staring at the Claws' leader, with his features disguised by his Power Armor as always. Tenkage was a ghoul? He certainly didn't look it, but then again, he was probably either lying or had decided that being exposed to any amount of radiation made him a Ghoul automatically or something. He wouldn't put it above this Wastelander. "I have nothing against mutants, Tenkage. Super Mutants, however, have a certain reputation for being illiterate murderers. Regardless, what I was saying is that we can't fit your whole... "posse" on one Bird. Ranik?" He said, turning to his commanding officer for his thoughts on the situation.
Bren sighs as this was like a major annoyance and then carter notices Bren's prosetic leg, and it clicked a bit, it must have been his blood that was infected, according to data bases, sometimes if a wound is open and radation gets in, then the hosts becoming slighty ghoul like
Fireman0504 The Western Brotherhood has no contact with the Eastern Brotherhood, they aren't affiliated anymore. Not since Lyons went Local
Ranik sighed. What was Bren doing? The man just never stopped making enemies. "OK, Thing," Ranik said sarcastically, "you aren't just getting on one of our Vertibirds and leaving. You can caravan home. We'll follow you to the edge of our borders from the air and then you keep going. Beyond that, may God help you." Ranik said. Bren began climbing out of the Vertibird and Carter, Sam, Colby, and Finley began climbing in as the rotors began twirling.
(Alright I'm gonna ski[p the 2 days of hiking to get back to the DC area, so basically we will arrive in the DC area after the Crusade is beaten or somthing, now I g2g someone take over for if they want )
Stryker nodded. Oaths? He could deal with oaths. What he couldn't deal with was being betrayed or considered expendable. He had a feeling Ranik would ensure that neither would happen. He was gonna be recommended for Brotherhood membership. It was an odd sensation, given that he had been intent on killing them all in the early years of his carreer. Maybe they weren't all bad. Hell, if they wanted rid of that Tenkage boy and his band of misfit wannabe heroes, then they were probably upstanding members of the community in their spare time.
"Well, there is one way to get Bren's posse into a Whirly. You could trim down the numbers a little." Stryker said, then raised his hands to show it was a joke. The Claws didn't seem to appreciate the sardonic wit. Dejan, as usual, least of all. That boy had one hell of a chip on his shoulder. The raider girl was looking at him like she wanted to hit him. Stryker winked, and she looked away immediately. Stryker stifled a laugh. That always worked on annoying women. His ex-mother-in-law had hated that self-satisfied way Stryker had of winking.
Ranik smiled as Stryker accepted. "So shall it be. As Protector of the Outcast Division of the Brotherhood of Steel, I hereby name you Initiate Daniel Stryker. Rise Brother of Steel, for with your acceptance into our order, you join a Brotherhood. Pure as Steel (HA!), Unyielding as Steel, Unforgiving as Steel. Do you swear to uphold the ideals that with the technology of today we may better serve the humanity of tomorrow?" Ranik gathered his squad around before they took off. "Outcasts, this man is your Brother. Your kin and your comrade. Do you swear now, that for him you'd die and in him you'd trust to die for you.?" Ranik said. "We do." they said in unison. "Do you, Daniel Stryker, hold this oath to be true, that you meet your foes with a resolve as strong as Steel, courage unwavering as Steel, and a will as indomitable as Steel. If so, acknowledge your oath." Ranik awaited. Stryker paused. "I do." he said. "Then rise once again, Initiate Daniel Stryker, for Initiate you are no longer. I name you Defender Daniel Stryker of the Brotherhood of Steel Outcasts." Ranik completed the Outcast rites. The Elders would accept his recommendations. The Outcasts welcomed Stryker with pats on the back and handshakes as they helped him aboard the Vertibird.
Fniff1 23:30, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
"Why don't we use the Beta train thing?" Dejan realized as he got on.
"goodbye stryker,ranik i fear the next time it will be as enamys not as alies but well met and ranik tell your elders they have a chance to end this war take it" Mick shook raniks hand and then watched as the vertibird took off.He walked over to dom "kid how would you like to be premoted"
"Immature pricks," Carter commented as he sat down in the Vertibird, placing his minigun flat across his lap and resting his hands on the top of the weapon.
Dom left his shovel stuck in the ground as he snapped into a salute as Mick approached, not quite catching what had been said. "Sir!" He barked, staring straight forwards, his face flecked with dirt from the digging and saturated with perspiration from the manual labour. "Uh, I'm sorry, sir, could you repeat that, uh, sir?!" He fired off in the same clipped but somewhat pathetic attempt at a harsh, militaristic tone. Dom honestly didn't know what Mick had said. Something about premonitions?
Fireman0504 Dude, The Claws are caravaning on the ground. They aren't in the Vertibird... just the Outcasts are
Stryker sat still. It had been decades since he was last in a Vertibird. Now he was headed for Lost Hills, the home of his one-time greatest enemies. He'd have to be completely honest with this lot about his past. Being Ex-Enclave Armed Forces wasn't exactly something you kept to yourself, especially when you were about to join the Brotherhood. Ranik had been quick enough to see the soldier in him and put two and two together. The Elders were likely to do the same just as fast, if not faster. He flexed his fingers around the armrest of his seat, almost nervously. He looked out at the California countryside passing by at an incredible rate below the Vertibird. In spite of the speed, the world seemed to be going in slow motion. People moving around, going about their daily business. With no idea of the slaughter that had gone on not ten miles away. Blissful ignorance of the peril they had so narrowly been spared from.
Fniff1 15:06, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
"Well,Want to go to new Reno?Might as well go there." Said Dejan as he got on the caravan.
The Vertibird touched down at Lost Hills. Protector Ranik stepped off along with Carter, Samantha, Colby, Finley, and Daniel Stryker. Immediately he was greeted by a Scribe, flanked by two Paladins, who saluted Protector Ranik as he approached. The other Outcasts stood in formation behind Ranik who turned back to them. "Thank you for your service," he said to them, "you may take your leave at New Independence." New Independence was a portion of the Lost Hills complex given to the Outcast division to conduct thier business. Primarily, that consisted of maintenance of the Vertibirds, MR-5 and MR-6 training, Power Armor and weapons training, barracks, a recreation area, and mess hall. "Your return is a welcome sight, Protector," the Scribe said, smiling, "the Elders trust our interests in Arroyo have been resolved." "Aye, they have," Ranik confirmed, "and I have recruited this man, Daniel Stryker, into the Outcasts. He's been given his Outcast rites and all he needs is an audience with the Elders for full membership." The Scribe looked Stryker up and down, noticing something different from the typical recruits brought in. He then looked back at Ranik. "You will be his sponsor then?" he said. "Aye," Ranik replied. "So be it," said the Scribe, "follow me." Ranik and Stryker began following the Scribe through the massive complex that was Lost Hills to where the Elders held council.(Forgot to mention that you found me, maybe you should add that they need to keep an eye on me, it would seem I am a magnet for conflict)
"No Dejan, we need to head home, we have to findour group and help them, I know they are good but I'm not sure if they finished the job" Bren said to him
Fireman0504 Sorry Bren. You were the issue that needed to be resolved. The Western Brotherhood doesn't have contact with the Eastern Brotherhood
Ranik stood next to Daniel Stryker in front of the Brotherhood Council of Elders. "Protector Wallace Ranik," the first Elder aid, "you have come before us with an Initiate." Ranik nodded. "That is correct, Sir." The Elders looked at Stryker. "This man is different, correct?" another said. "Yes Sir," Ranik said. "Please explain yourself." the Elder asked Stryker. Stryker went into his story. Ranik watched and stoodby, trying to gauge the Elders. After Stryker finished, the Elders deliberated. "Protector Ranik, we have come to a decision." "Yes Sir," Ranik said. "This man, and Enclave deserter, is a questionable candidate. However, we cannot overlook the fact, that the story he's given us makes us privy to intricate knowledge of the workings of one of our sworn and most hated enemies. If you, Protector, are willing to accept him into your division and take responsibility for him here, we cannot find any reason to deny him membership into the Brotherhood of Steel. Should he fail though Protector, you will be held accountable and your life will be forfiet." Ranik nodded. "I accept the terms of this agreement." Stryker looked at Ranik. "Very good, Protector," the first Elder said, "you are dismissed." Ranik and Stryker left the room. Ranik turned to Stryker as they walked. "Well, welcome to the Brotherhood Stryker. Our lives are now entwined. I give you my word that I will not let you down, so please do not let me down." Ranik and Stryker walked toward nNew Independence, the home of the Outcasts.
Mick sighed "i said promotion idiot more specificle inm going home now and i want to leave someone capable in charge so how would you like to be promoted to colonel"
"What?" was the only thing that came out of Dom's mouth. Colonel? How could he be a colonel? He couldn't. It was flattering that Cross had decided that he was ready for it, but he wasn't. He was a corporal. A promotion to lance corporal certainly wouldn't have gone amiss, but colonel? He shook off the initial awe and spoke again. "Sir, I've been in the army for two years, sir. I'm not ready for that sort of responsibility. You should go and promote one of the older, more deserving troops." Dom said humbly, before remembering to add "... Sir!" and saluting again.
"what older more deserving troups most of the arryo regiment are dead besides the only other people i can think off would much rather be gambling and drinking than looking after a regiment"
Fniff1 12:13, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
As they went away from arryo, Dejan sang I don't want to set the world on fire.(this is the last post for the claws, we will return to the DC area RP after this)
Bren looks back at Arryo
"It is true, War....War Never changes" Bren says as they headed back to the DC area and to help fight off the crusade, they should soon meet at the Super duper Mart and hopefully meet up with their friends (this is the part where the Crusade ambush them there)
"I got your back Ranik." Stryker said. He was not going to let these Outcasts down. Unless they let him down first. He wasn't sure whether or not he'd have a nervous breakdown if he was forsaken by another organisation. Lost Hills looked bigger on the inside than from the outside. The Outcast's little slice of heaven, New Independence. It sounded like a place from a spy novel. Stryker looked around. This really was an impressive place. Much more his speed than little yokel villages and tribal tent campsites. He felt right at home here, back with the military. A new dawn of a new day. Without fucking yokel natives pissing him off every second minute.
Fniff1 14:46, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
They got on the train. Dejan started it up. "War never changes,How oddly familiar." Dejan said.(thanks Fniiff, I'm not think
Bren nods and as the train starts they prepare for the trip back, to the war they left and they need to finish
Fniff1 15:06, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
The train stopss suddenly.
"Well. F*ck." Dejan said. "We will have to walk."
A guy in a cool suit stumbles out.
"Alright,What the hell is go- Dejan! It's been like,2 or 4 years?" The man said.
Bren puts his armbehind hsi back just in case if it is an emeny
"Know him?" he asks Dejan as Jason helps Leach out
Fniff1 18:05, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
"Lonik's brother,Ramo, or Ramses as he calls himself." Said Dejan. "Lonik went into the Survivalist category while Ramo became a new Reno mobster.
"Sir, I can't. I'd probably drive this regiment into the ground before I did anything good for it, sir." Dom explained quietly, his head bowed slightly. He couldn't believe he was doing this, turning down the power that came with being a colonel. He then looked over Mick's shoulder and pointed across at a man in NCR uniform who was talking to a woman. Dom's parents. "That's my father over there, sir. He was a Captain before he retired, sir. I reccomend that you ask him, sir."
"well done kid if you'd asked for it i would have asumed you were another one of the lazy assholes who make up most of the NCR milatry you are now premoted to sargent and on your advice i'l ask your father wether he would like to take the job"
--Cerebral plague 19:10, 13 April 2009 (UTC) (Pointing some stuff out, I think Vegas is using Mich Cross, and he's a NCR bounty hunter. They can't promote any one, to any rank, also this RP is over, as Bren started a new one.)
"You are a Brother of Steel now, and an Outcast," Ranik said, "the majority of us have been together since we abandoned Elder Lyons in the Capital Wasteland. When Protector Casdin was promoted to Elder Casdin upon our return, Protector Jackson, who is now Paladin Jackson, did not want to take command of the division. To be truthful, of the seven hundred men that returned with us from D.C., five hundred reverted to Brotherhood rankings and rejoined wholeheartedly. There were those of us who wished to keep our Outcast ranks and traditions, to honor all those who fought and died with us as Outcasts in the Capital Wasteland. Paladin Jackson appointed me the rank of Protector. It is now my duty to keep the Outcasts alive. My division numbers two hundred men and women, including our Specialists. We've had to do some recruiting and we've had a couple of children born which will gradually replace losses and keep us going. All Outcast Brothers are at the rank of Defender. We wear our colors and display our insignia proudly, and the Brotherhood of Steel accepts this. If you are looking for loyalty, I can assure you that you will not find a more tightly knit and loyal group of soldiers in Lost Hills, baring those Brothers of Steel who returned with us. You'll know them because they wear, along with Brotherhood insignia, our insignia on the right shoulder." Ranik and Stryker went into the armory, where Ranik unveiled several suits of Power Armor, each of varying design. There was T-45x, T-51b, T-45x Medic, and several suits of MR-5. "One set of Power Armor is yours to choose," Ranik said, "should you choose the MR-5, I would ask that you seek out Enforcer Samantha Vain. She will provide training in the use of this remarkable weapon of war." Stryker nodded. "When war calls, we answer. Other than that, your time here is your own to do with what you will. You may spend time in the canteen. Defender Krumm there knows many concoctions from all over the country. You may use the firing ranges, the data library, participate in training. Whatever you want. We've spent so much time working our asses off trying to come back here and collecting everything we have, that we deserve our own time to spend with family and friends in safety and security. You are free to go about your business as you see fit. If you are hungry for action, which some of us get from time to time, there are rosters in the quartermaster's office for patrols and combat missions alongside the Brotherhood of Steel regulars. Once again, I bid you welcome to New Independence, Defender Stryker."
Stryker nodded slowly to himself. That MR-5 stuff looked downright dangerous. His kind of thing. But then, that medic armor could pump you full of Med-X before you passed out, so that could come in handy. A tough decision. And the T-51b had such a legacy. Stryker never thought he'd see anything like it in his lifetime, and here he was, staring at a whole rack of it.
"I think I'll go for that MR-5 thing. Looks like it could give that Mk.II stuff they used to wear on the Oil Rig a run for its money. Where would I find Enforcer Vain?" Stryker said. He wanted to get into the thick of things ASAP. But then, it'd probably be like the little brother of the group, tumbling along behind everyone else who brought him along under duress from their mother. Or else they'd all call him Gramps or something. He hoped someone would draw a parallel between his white-streaked black hair and a badger, if a nickname was absolutely necessary. That was the one good thing that had come from his time in Vegas and Baltimore. His nickname: The Badger.
Fireman0504 Sorry, forgot to mention captured Enclave Styles of armor, Advanced Mk II and Tesla
Ranik nodded. "It is yours," he said, removing the pieces of armor from the rack. "Enforcer Vain will be found conducting MR-5 training at the end of the hangar. She trains extensively with MR-5 and there should be more than a few Outcasts there training. Most of these soldiers are not traiined in the use of the MR-5. Even I'm not. Samantha has kind of her own little sub-squad within the Outcasts. Enforcer Vain leads the main shock troops of the Outcasts when the whole division goes to war. With the MR-5 they can stand up to a lot more that is thrown at them. We always follow close behind, so we're not overextended and we don't leave each other hanging. Vain is a dear friend of mine and I'd never leave her or her men out to dry. She'll train you in hand to hand techniques and maneuverablity in the armor as well as drop techniques from Vertibirds. You will be a walking tank in that armor, though with much more agility than that spacesuit armor that the Enclave has. Most of our actions are against the locals of the NCR, and they have nothing that can really dent it even. It's the Enclave who are the main threat, but with them kept in check, we are actually in a relatively peaceful time. I, personally, am going to enjoy it. So, if there is anything else you need, you have but to ask."
