BitterSpringsTroopers Captain Gilles at Bitter Springs needs reinforcements. Can you spare any? Disgust 30 {Baffled, this is a bizarre request} What? Why on earth would you think you can walk in here and make troop deployment recommendations to me? 1
Captain Gilles at Bitter Springs needs reinforcements. Can you spare any? Happy 20 I appreciate your concern for Bitter Springs. You've already been quite helpful to the NCR, I suppose it's only right to return the favor. 2
Captain Gilles at Bitter Springs needs reinforcements. Can you spare any? Happy 30 {Thoughtful} Well, you have been a great help here, and with the saboteur dealt with... Yes, I think we can spare a few men. Consider it done. 3
GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 Anders showed up here not too long ago. I'm told you're the one who got him out of the vault. 4
Neutral 50 I can't tell you how relieved I am. Sending him on that mission was a mistake. 5
GREETING Neutral 50 We're all impressed with the work you've done for us. I thought you might be able to make use of this. 6
Neutral 50 It's a key to a little hideaway south of here. We've used it as a place for Rangers to rest and resupply. I thought you might get good use out of it. 7
GREETING Neutral 50 I know who you are. I'm a patient man, but you'd better have a damn good reason to be standing here right now. Spit it out. 8
GREETING Neutral 50 Look who it is. I haven't had the privilege, but I'm told you've been an angel on our shoulder. What can we do for you at Camp McCarran? 9
GREETING Neutral 50 Well. I'm glad we could finally meet. My sources tell me you've done some good work for us. What brings you to Camp McCarran? 10
GREETING Neutral 50 I'm usually good with faces, but I don't think I've seen you here before. What brings you to Camp McCarran? 11
GREETING Neutral 50 What happened? 12
GREETING Neutral 50 Yes, what is it? 13
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic000 I'm here to provide support. Is there anything I might be able to help with? Neutral 50 Hmm... you don't cook by any chance, do you? Farber's doing his best, but it's hard to manage an army with half my staff in line for the latrine. {Wryly.} 14
Neutral 50 Honestly, we're fighting a lot of fires right now. The Fiends keep pressing their position from Vault 3. {emphasize "a lot"} 15
Neutral 50 We've got the Legion breathing down our necks across the river. We actually took an officer alive last week, but so far he hasn't spoken a word. 16
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic001 I'm up for hire if you need some extra manpower around the base. Neutral 50 There are a lot of things I can't spare troops for right now. If you can help us, we can definitely pay you for your work. 17
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic002 How are things going for the NCR around here? Neutral 50 Could be better, I'll say that much. 18
Neutral 50 We set up here with our sights set on annexing New Vegas. That's a lot of resources that could do a lot of good for us. But that hasn't happened. 19
Neutral 50 If anything, they annexed us. They rake in the profits from our soldiers and we're stuck protecting them from the Legion. Not exactly the plan. {emphasize slightly "they" and "us" to indicate it's the opposite of the expected outcome.} 20
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic004 The Fiends? Neutral 50 As in chem fiends. Biggest gang of raiders I've ever seen. Nothing like addiction to swell your numbers. Psychotic, and completely unpredictable. {Emphasize "chem."} 21
Neutral 50 They've set up shop in Vault 3 to the west. Every day they attack our positions and my men repel them. 22
Neutral 50 But every day there's more of them and less of us. I sent one of my rangers after their leader to try and destabilize them. He didn't return. 23
Neutral 50 Hell of a thing, losing a ranger. You come to depend on them. And they come through for you so often, you forget it can happen. 24
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic005 I bet I could make the Legion prisoner talk. Neutral 50 I have Lieutenant Boyd on that already, and she's excellent. But I think she's hit a wall. 25
Neutral 50 Talk to her, if you like. See if she has any use for you. 26
Neutral 50 Her office is right above mine, but I think she might be interrogating right now. So she'd be upstairs on the other side of the building. 27
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic006 I could look into who's leaking NCR intelligence. Neutral 50 You? I think you've done enough. 28
I could look into who's leaking NCR intelligence. Neutral 50 Hmm... Well, why not? Given your recent arrival, at least I can safely rule you out as the leak. {agreeing} 29
Neutral 50 I'd like to have absolute trust in my men, but that's just not practical right now. Go ahead and look into it. See what you find. 30
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic007 Let's talk about something else. Neutral 50 Sure. I'm all ears. 31
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic008 I know who bombed the monorail. Neutral 50 What? Who? 32
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic009 You won't be having problems with intelligence leaks anymore. Neutral 50 No? What happened? 33
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic011 You seem calm given that things are as bad as they are. Neutral 50 Calm is what you have to be when people look to you. And it's all you can be when things are out of your hands. 34
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic012 [Speech] I've been fighting for the wrong side. Let me prove myself to you. Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] I'll believe it when I see it. You've got one shot, and you're on a tight leash. I'll be watching. 35
[Speech] I've been fighting for the wrong side. Let me prove myself to you. Neutral 50 [FAILED] Forget it. We have no use for you here. 36
[Speech] I've been fighting for the wrong side. Let me prove myself to you. Neutral 50 We don't have much to go on right now. Lately every raiding party in New Vegas seems to have a map of our troop movements. 37
Neutral 50 It derails everything. Supplies, reinforcements. And it'll only get worse, the longer we let it go on. 38
Neutral 50 Captain Curtis is heading up the investigation right now. He can fill you in. 39
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic013 Private Crenshaw. He's dead now. Neutral 50 Crenshaw... I've met Crenshaw. At his disciplinary hearing. Still, this is hard to imagine - he was just a prankster. {Thinking. "At his disciplinary hearing" is damning evidence.} 40
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic014 He had explosives and plans for the operation bearing Caesar's emblem. Neutral 50 I was afraid of this. Caesar's reach is longer than anybody guessed. 41
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic016 [Speech] He confessed it to me before he died. He used the word "frumentarius." Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] That's what the Legion calls their spies. I was afraid of this. Caesar's reach is longer than anybody guessed. 42
[Speech] He confessed it to me before he died. He used the word "frumentarius." Neutral 50 If only we'd caught this sooner, before he got to the monorail... 43
Neutral 50 Still, this investigation has been valuable to us, and you deserve to be compensated for it. 44
Neutral 50 The NCR appreciates the work you've done. Will there be anything else? 45
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic017 [Speech] He confessed it to me. Right before he died. Neutral 50 [FAILED] That's not exactly airtight. {disbelieving, angry} 46
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic018 You'd be surprised what some people are capable of. Neutral 50 That doesn't implicate Crenshaw any more than it does anyone else. 47
You'd be surprised what some people are capable of. Neutral 50 This isn't the resolution I was looking for when I assigned you to this. 48
Neutral 50 Given the dubious circumstances under which the confession took place, the NCR can't compensate you. 49
Neutral 50 Ordinarily I'd have to arrest you for this. But we can hardly afford to waste resources in the wake of all that's happened. 50
Neutral 50 I think your freedom is compensation enough for whatever it is you've done here, don't you? 51
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic019 I'll be right back - there's something I need to double-check. Neutral 50 I'll be waiting. 52
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic020 Motor-runner is dead. I brought his helmet as proof. Neutral 50 Unbelievable. That man has given us so much grief since we set up here. This may be a major turning point for us. {awestruck} 53
Neutral 50 I can't tell you how many times we thought we'd taken him out, only to have him show up again later, taking more heads off of fallen troopers. 54
Neutral 50 This is for the bounty. And this is from a pool me and a lot of the soldiers around the base had going. You may not be NCR, but hey, it's only fair. {emphasize the second "this."} 55
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic021 [Attack] I did. Right before I assassinated the colonel. Neutral 50 You're getting ahead of yourself. {defiant, about to pull his gun and start shooting at a guy} 56
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic022 It was Curtis. He's in the Legion. I can prove he tried to blow up the monorail. Neutral 50 Curtis? He's been in the NCR long before our conflict with the Legion. There's just no way... {incredulous} 57
Neutral 50 I hope you're mistaken, but somehow I don't think so. It'd explain a lot. This is much worse than anyone expected. There could be others, too. 58
Neutral 50 You've done everything that was asked of you. You have my personal thanks for this, and I'll make sure you receive the credit you deserve. 59
It was Curtis. He's in the Legion. I can prove he tried to blow up the monorail. Neutral 50 I'll have Curtis taken into custody. If he lets himself be taken alive, that is. 60
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic023 I caught Curtis radioing intel to Caesar's Legion. I had to take him down. Neutral 50 Curtis? Something's not right. He came to me today saying he was worried about the monorail. Had me put him in charge of the inspection crew. {stunned by the name} 61
Neutral 50 Listen, you've got to get to the monorail. If it's been sabotaged, we're completely crippled here. Go! 62
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic024 The monorail is destroyed. Neutral 50 Goddamn it! How could I have let this happen? 63
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic025 I don't understand how you could be so careless with the life of a ranger. Neutral 50 I'd hoped he'd be able to slip past their security and be out before anyone knew he was there. 64
Neutral 50 But I underestimated the Fiends. Should've known better, given the hell they've caused for us. 65
I don't understand how you could be so careless with the life of a ranger. Neutral 50 Regardless, what you did for Anders isn't something he or any of us around here take lightly. We're all glad to have him back. Thank you. 66
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic026 You did the right thing. If you'd sent more, they'd have been killed. Neutral 50 That's probably true, but I wonder if I should've taken a different strategy entirely. 67
Neutral 50 Although my options were certainly limited with most of our forces tied up garrisoning this place. 68
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic028 Ambassador Crocker said to come see you about the situation with the Kings in Freeside. Neutral 50 Ah, that. I'm surprised he didn't send you to Colonel Moore. That'd be her jurisdiction. 69
Ambassador Crocker said to come see you about the situation with the Kings in Freeside. Neutral 50 I've already received a communique from Colonel Moore saying that she's sent a squad down to Freeside. 70
Neutral 50 If you'd come to me first, I might have been able to do something. But at this point, my hands are tied. Sorry. 71
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic029 He said those were his official orders, but suggested seeing you anyway. Neutral 50 Because he's looking to avoid a bloodbath. I get it. He knows me. 72
He said those were his official orders, but suggested seeing you anyway. Neutral 50 All right. Moore's not gonna like it. But that's for Crocker to worry about. 73
Neutral 50 Go to the leader of the Kings and tell him that I'll make sure Freeside gets more water, power, and food as long as the violence there stops. 74
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic030 He said you might have a better way of dealing with the issue. Neutral 50 Well, I do get to make the calls on the distribution of supplies there. 75
Neutral 50 Crocker was probably counting on me being able to offer the Kings a carrot. And that's what I'm inclined to do. 76
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic031 The ambassador didn't think Colonel Moore would handle the situation correctly. Neutral 50 Moore's got her hands full right now, and she's not a subtle person in the best of times. Her solution would be quick and dirty. 77
Neutral 50 I agree with Crocker that a more peaceful solution is preferable, especially for the long term. 78
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic032 Any other problems? Neutral 50 Yeah. On top of everything else, I can't send a patrol on a bathroom break without it being ambushed by someone who heard they were coming. 79
Neutral 50 So somebody's getting the word out. 80
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic033 Where does that leave you? Neutral 50 Now we're trying to secure the Strip and the Dam at the same time, and it's costing us. 81
Neutral 50 And in the meantime General Oliver won't approve any offensive maneuvers because he doesn't want to risk losing our positions. 82
Neutral 50 So we're in a holding pattern here. And Caesar's on the other side of the river, planning. 83
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic034 What's Camp McCarran's role in NCR operations? Neutral 50 It's our main base. We took it because it lets us keep an eye on the Strip. And it had already been fortified before the Great War. 84
Neutral 50 From here we handle most of the logistics for our operations in Nevada. Troop allocation, supply distribution, intel. 85
Neutral 50 Usually General Oliver runs the show here, but he's on his way to the Dam now, so I've taken on a lot of his duties here. 86
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic035 Are things mostly quiet between here and the Dam? Neutral 50 Unfortunately, no. In fact, the word from the Ranger stations has been especially concerning lately. 87
Neutral 50 It sounds like they've run into overwhelming resistance, and supplies just aren't reaching them. 88
Neutral 50 It's been so bad I asked Sergeant Reyes at Camp Forlorn Hope to look into it and see how it is that things could be so fouled up there. 89
VMS08ColonelHsuTopic036 What challenges does the NCR face here? Neutral 50 Everything was going according to President Kimball's plan at first. We met minor resistance from local troublemakers. 90
Neutral 50 But our two main objectives are still contested. Mr. House controls the Strip and he won't so much as meet with our ambassador. 91
Neutral 50 And we're holding Hoover Dam, but Caesar's Legion is positioning itself to overrun it. If it falls, so will New Vegas. We'd be forced to withdraw. 92
VMS08ColonelHsuVault3Accept I'll go to Vault 3 and see if I can find your ranger. Neutral 50 That Vault is a hornet's nest. If you have second thoughts, no one would think less of you for it. But if you can get him home, it'd mean a lot. 93
Neutral 50 Watch for civilians, too. The Fiends have been kidnapping locals. They just walk right into people's homes in the middle of the day and take them. 94
Neutral 50 But the man you're looking for is Bryce Anders. Anders was trying to find the leader, Motor-runner. 95
Neutral 50 You hear something like a chainsaw, you've found Motor-runner. Put a bullet in his head, and you'll have some new friends around here. {emphasize "his"} 96
