Better be careful around these parts, I hear there is Powder Gangers around and dangers for merchants like me.

The bounty hunter (initially known as traveling merchant) is a bounty hunter working undercover in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.


This traveling merchant is actually an independent bounty hunter, formerly a caravan guard, working undercover. Following a prison riot at the local NCR Correctional Facility, this bounty hunter went into Powder Ganger territory near Primm and Goodsprings, hoping to bag a few Powder Gangers and earn a few caps from the local NCR presence (even though they are not actually offering bounties for Powder Gangers.)

The incognito bounty hunter's activity has attracted the suspicion of gang leader Eddie, who wants him off his turf. What makes this "merchant" suspicious is that he lacks goods to sell, a brahmin to carry merchandise, and guards for protection, plus the recent deathclaw infestation near Sloan has redirected all merchant traffic to the safer Highway 95. This has made the merchant a trap to any Powder Ganger who would dare robbing him.

Eddie believes the "merchant" is with the NCR, possibly a Ranger.[1]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 NCRCFEddie.txt: Good. Had him figured for NCR, one of the rangers maybe. Anyway, speaking of the NCR, I need you to take a walk down to Primm.
