Topics Edit

DLC04MarAboutFaith00Top I want to know about your beliefs. Neutral 50 Would you like me to recite some scripture, or did you just want to know more about the Faith? 1
DLC04MarAboutFaithCult Sounds like just another cult to me. Neutral 50 No, not exactly. People have clung to many beliefs since the Great War, and some have their foundations in the Faith. 2
Neutral 50 The Bible was around long before the bombs fell, as was my Faith. To us, the War was a great tragedy, but not the True Apocalypse. 3
DLC04MarAboutFaithMission What exactly is your mission? Neutral 50 We try to improve the state of the Wasteland by doing good where we can and by spreading the word of the Bible. 4
Neutral 50 We also recover and restore religious relics that we can find, but that's a secondary goal. 5
DLC04MarAboutFaithMom My mother had a favorite passage from the Bible. Revelation 21:6 - recognize it? Neutral 50 Of course! "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely." 6
Neutral 50 So lovely. Selflessness like that is a rare commodity these days. I can see why that particular passage inspired her. 7
DLC04MarAboutFaithOrigins How did you become a missionary? Neutral 50 I was raised at the Abbey of the Road where I was educated until I could receive my Rites of Mission. That's when I first left the Abbey. 8
DLC04MarAboutFaithPassage Scripture? Neutral 50 Scripture - the world as told in the Bible. Would you like to hear a verse? 9
I'd like to hear a passage. Neutral 50 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall rise again incorruptible. 10
Neutral 50 And we shall be changed. 11
Could you recite a passage? Neutral 50 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 12
Could you recite a passage? Neutral 50 I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world. 13
DLC04MarAboutFaithPassNevermind Yeah, let's not do that. Neutral 50 Oh, of course, my child. Something else, then? 14
DLC04MarAboutFaithPassRecite Sure, let's hear it. Neutral 50 I'm afraid I don't have a copy of the scripture with me, but I can share a few passages. Here's one of my favorites. 15
Neutral 50 I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; 16
Neutral 50 he has crossed over from death to life. 17
DLC04MarcellaBook0TopLvl Can we discuss the Blackhall situation? Neutral 50 I fear Obadiah is in dire straits. What do you want to talk about? 18
DLC04MarcellaBookMoreInfo Tell me more about this Book that's so important. Neutral 50 Obadiah's a good man, but his family has an evil past. This book is an unwanted heirloom, and the foundation of the heathen Krvibi ritualists. 19
DLC04MarcellaBookWhatNow What should I be doing again? Neutral 50 I told you about their ritual site, remember? See if they're hiding the book there and bring it back to me. From there? I don't yet know. 20
DLC04MarcellaLetterDeliver Obadiah Blackhall sent me. I have a letter. Neutral 50 Obadiah sent you? Well, then, let's see what he has to say. 21
Neutral 50 (Pauses to read note) 22
Neutral 50 Oh dear... no, no. This can only mean one thing. 23
DLC04MarcellaLetterResponse What's wrong? What did the letter say? Fear 50 Long ago, the Blackhall family possessed a terrible heirloom, a book of evil rituals, best forgotten. The Krvibi have their origins in it. 24
Fear 50 The book was stolen years ago, though the Krvibi have never known of the theft. Their fear has kept the Blackhall Family safe these long years. 25
Neutral 50 They'd never be so bold... that foul book is back in Point Lookout, and they must have it! We can't allow them to keep it. 26
DLC04MarcellaLetterWhatToDo What do you expect me to do? Neutral 50 We must get it back before the Krvibi learn anything from it. 27
Neutral 50 There's a ritual site... I'm certain they'll be hiding it there. I don't know yet what we must do, but for now it's enough to steal the book. 28
DLC04MarHolotapeMessage DLC04MarHolotapeMessage Pained 50 They attacked while I slept. I.. I don't expect to survive. I only pray that you haven't taken that book to Obadiah. You must take up my mission. {Recorded as she lies dying of wounds. Ad-lib coughs, etc, but not overboard.} 29
Neutral 50 There is... one way to utterly destroy the Krivbeknih, but you must take a pilgrimage, far north of Point Lookout, in the Capital Wasteland. 30
Neutral 50 Seek a place called Dunwich. Within is an obelisk, itself a wicked thing. It'll consume the book - you need only press the book to its surface. 31
Neutral 50 May God shed his blessings upon you, child. Make haste for Dunwich. {losing her strength, she finishes her message.} 32
Pained 50 My God, I am sorry for all my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against You whom I should... {quietly, saying Act of Contrition to herself. She either turns the recorder off or takes her last breath as she fades } 33
DLC04MarIntro01 Pleased to meet you, Marcella. Neutral 50 The feeling is mutual, child. I'd enjoy sharing my belief in the Faith, if you'll listen. 34
DLC04MarIntro02 The Faith? Let me guess - another doomsday cult? Neutral 50 No, not exactly. I'd be happy to tell you more about my beliefs, if you're interested. 35
DLC04MarIntro03 Shouldn't you be at the Cathedral with the Tribals? Neutral 50 That's an ironic choice of words, actually. 36
Neutral 50 That Cathedral was once a sanctuary of the Faith, true. 37
Neutral 50 Those who inhabit it now, however, are not of the Faith and won't suffer my presence. So no, child - that Cathedral is no place for me. 38
DLC04MarKriv0Intro01 He has, as a matter of fact. Neutral 50 I thought as much. Listen to me very carefully, child. You mustn't bring it to him. 39
Neutral 50 That book is known as the Krivbeknih, and it's a thing of evil purpose. 40
DLC04MarKriv0Intro02 Maybe. So what if he has? Neutral 50 Please, you don't understand what it is you're sent to fetch. That book, the Krivbeknih, is a thing of evil. 41
DLC04MarKrivbeknih01 Krivbeknih? What are you on about? Neutral 50 Yes, the Krivbeknih. The Blackhall family has a long, evil history with the book. 42
Neutral 50 It was lost to them long ago, but it's found a way back to Point Lookout, and Obadiah seeks to reclaim it. 43
DLC04MarKrivbeknih02 I don't know what you're talking about, woman. Step aside. Anger 50 I will not be dismissed by you! 44
Neutral 50 That book has been lost to the Blackhalls for generations, and I intend to make sure it stays lost. 45
DLC04MarKrivMotives Why do you want it so badly? Anger 50 Obadiah's no better than the heathens he's asked you to steal it from. He believes he can use it to control them, and God knows what else. 46
Neutral 50 There's a way to destroy that damned thing. I intend to do just that. 47
DLC04MarKrivPayment Obadiah's paying. How about you? Neutral 50 I can't promise you money, but I have some medical supplies I can share. Please; it would be a good thing you do. 48
DLC04MarKrivQuestAgree If I recover the book, I'll consider bringing it to you. Neutral 50 I ask no more. You can find me at my tent on the beach, south of Blackhall. God bless your path, child. 49
DLC04MarPtLookout00TopLvl What do you think of Point Lookout? Neutral 50 I'm relatively new here myself, but I'll share what I can. 50
DLC04MarPtLookoutFetishes What do you make of all the bones and dolls on sticks around here? Neutral 50 Swampfolk fetishes or totems. They probably mark territorial lines, or maybe are involved with rituals of some kind. 51
Neutral 50 I've read about a lot of primitive beliefs that use similar symbols. Vodou magic, Santería, Obeah. Fascinating, if somewhat disturbing. 52
Neutral 50 Though the underlying beliefs seem quite dark, I'm not sure they're anything more than an empty set of traditions to the swampfolk. 53
DLC04MarPtLookoutLocals What do you think of the locals? Neutral 50 Hostile, in a word. I try to observe, but the swampfolk are dangerously aggressive to any outsiders. Lucky for us, they tend to keep to the swamp. 54
DLC04MarPtLookoutMedicalTents Did you set this campsite up? Neutral 50 Sort of - the tents were collapsed when I found them. I was able to put them back together. This one smells the least like a wet Brahmin. 55
Neutral 50 I restored a terminal in one of the other tents. From that it would seem these tents were originally put here before the War by medical workers. 56
DLC04MarPtLookoutWhereYouFrom You said you're not from around here? Neutral 50 I come from the Abbey of the Road. I'm what you might call a missionary. I travel the Wastes, spreading the Faith and doing good where I can. 57
You said you're not from around here? Neutral 50 Right, I'm from the Abbey of the Road. I'm afraid its location is secret, however. 58
DLC04TalkSomethingElse Let's talk about something else. Neutral 50 That book is of the utmost importance, we shouldn't be chatting idly. {polite but hurried.} 59
Let's talk about something else. Neutral 50 What else do you want to discuss? 60
GREETING Neutral 50 Wait a moment. I need to know; has Obadiah sent you in search of a book? 61
Neutral 50 Please; there's nothing for us to discuss until you retrieve that book from the ritual site. You must hurry. 62
Neutral 50 Greetings, child. I'm Marcella, missionary and student of the Faith. How are you? 63
Neutral 50 Speak your mind, love. 64

Conversation Edit

GOODBYE I have to go now. Neutral 50 Go with great care. 65
HELLO HELLO Neutral 50 Lots of people out there, but too few trustworthy. 66
HELLO Happy 50 Did you want to talk? I won't bite. 67
HELLO Neutral 50 Go with God, child. 68
HELLO Neutral 50 Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. {quietly, saying Hail Mary to herself, privately.} 69
