Day #387

Day #387

It's been a minute; lots to catch up on! The wasteland has been getting livelier lately and we've taken on two new legionaries.  Both were fresh out of one of the vaults and are a married couple.  Was kinda the usual pitch: flash some power armor and lasers and all of the newbies get excited and want their own. But the 47th is definitely very happy to have Atomic_Candyman and Miss_Atomic_Candyman on board. For some practical matters I've learned how to tweak and install some great

Day #365

Been helluva  few days!   Got the T-60 power armor up and running which was been nice in the nuke zones since it's so much better at filtering out radiation.  T-51b is still superior in all  other aspects but still; nice to not get fried. That being said, I'm still incomplete on my T-45d.  I'm close but not quite which is a damn shame; I love that armor.  I fought all the way through Alaska in it and then some.  It's where I feel at home.  Soon... I can feel it. Now, the real news

Day #360

Don't have a lot of time so keeping it short today.   Got to take the T-51b out for a real test drive about five seconds after I finished repairs on it.  Fissure site prime got nuked and out came a scorchbeast queen, as always.  Goddam things are endless, it seems. 700 fusion cells, 12 rockets, 5 plasma grenades, and I don't even know how many .308 rounds later and she was dead.  Only two other wastelanders there with me.  Smallest group I've seen tackle a queen. Got my C.A.M.P. s

Day #359

Took the plunge today and relocated my C.A.M.P..  The original monorail site I chose didn't work out, unfortunately.  That pylon was too unstable.  I walked the track east a bit more and found a better section of track and began construction. Can't believe I actually ran out of wood!  Got a lot of the hard work done.  Just a few decisions left to make regarding some structural stuff and then on to some interior decorating. In major news, I helped take down two scorchbeast queens today.

Day #354

Found that perfect build site I had been looking for.  Someone else, long dead, had built some stairway and ladders to get to the top of the monorail support but the track is intact between two of the supports so it's perfect.  I'm currently trying to source the appropriate building materials.  I'm thinking this time I'm going to have to go all metal.  It needs to be really structurally strong.  And I mean really structurally strong.  I will be six or seven stories above ground. Also,

Day #353

What a day.  What a day. I've decided I want to relocate.  Summersville is okay.  The bridge has been a decent enough position to hold so far.  The turrets have done their jobs:  scorched, super mutants, mongrels, mole rats; they've dealt with it all. But I don't want to deal with any of them, to be honest.  I want to get away from these monstrosities.  I want to build... higher.  I've been thinking about the monorail track a lot since I hit Garrahan Mining Headquarters.  Being up that

Day #351

Got some pretty serious time in my T-45d power armor today.  The equipment in Black Water Mine briefly came back to life and I was joined by a few other wastelanders there just to get a few chunks of uranium for whatever.  I don't even know what I'll do with my share to be honest.  Only thing I can think of are some tritium sights for a few of my guns but that's it. Ran into a goddam wendigo too.  Where did these things come from?  And I helped take down a sheepsquatch too.  It's like the w

Day #347

I've made a lot of progress over the past few days and have been way too busy and exhausted to get an entry in but after a day of some recuperation I have some great news:  I've finally pieced together an entire set of T-45d and, boy; it feels great. The timing was excellent as well as mere minutes after completing my repairs nearby Whitesprings was nuked again and I was determined to finally get in there and collect some of the freshly irradiated materials. And if that wasn't enough I

Day #341

Started the day on a route reconnaissance with Vexillarian Odin.  We hoofed it northeast past Top of the World to the ATLAS Observatory.  It was heavily defended by robots. Most notable was a fully loaded sentry bot that nearly took us out.  Those missiles!  I've experienced the sentry bots in Whitesprings every time I head out there but being on the other end for the first time... was just glad Odin was there with a set of powered armor and his super sledge. We made our way inside the

Snow and I were finally joined by fellow Legionary Odin after re-establishing contact with him early last week.  We're glad he's still alive.  I'm glad Snow is still alive and still find it unbelievable that we just happened to bump into each other just outside of Summersville.  Snow has since relocated his base adjacent to mine. While working on my Order of Tadpole merit badges for the Pioneer Scouts I ran into Vexillarian Odin just outside of the Morgantown Airport.  Both of us had cleare
