TOPIC TOPIC TEXT / PROMPT EMOTION RESPONSE TEXT #
GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 {FIRST TALK, TROUBLE} {slow burn} You're the courier who's caused so much trouble for my Legion, and yet you dare come before me. 1
GREETING Happy 50 {FIRST TALK, BAD NCR REP} {appraising} So I finally get to meet the courier who's caused so much trouble for the New California Republic. 2
GREETING Anger 50 {FIRST TALK} So I finally get to meet the courier who's accomplished so much in so little time. That is why I summoned you here, right? 3
Surprise 50 I mean, a man nearly kills you, and your response is to track him across the breadth of the Mojave? 4
GREETING Anger 50 {FIRST TALK} The question is... are you ready to get started? 5
GREETING Neutral 50 Down the hill, at the west edge of camp, is an old building. It was here when the Fort was taken in 2277. 6
Neutral 50 Inside the building is a hatch, and inside that hatch are two steel doors that bear the {SIH-jihl} sigil of the Lucky 38 casino. 7
GREETING Anger 50 Now that same sigil is on the Platinum Chip Benny was carrying when we captured him. Isn't that interesting? 8
GREETING Anger 50 Now that same sigil is on the Platinum Chip you were carrying. Isn't that interesting? 9
GREETING Anger 50 Even more interesting, there's a slot about the same size as the Chip on the console that opens the hatch. So you know what I think? 10
Anger 50 I think the Platinum Chip opens those doors - doors that can't be pried open or drilled open or blasted open. Because all that, I tried. 11
GREETING Anger 50 {BEFORE VAULT DESTROYED} We'll talk again when you've destroyed whatever is down in that bunker - not before. 12
GREETING Happy 50 {AFTER VAULT DESTROYED} I felt the ground shake a while ago. I'll take that as a sign you got the job done. 13
GREETING Happy 50 There are rewards for doing as I command. Today, your reward is vengeance. You get to decide how Benny dies. 14
Happy 50 Go to Benny, let him know what you've decided. My Praetorians will perform the execution - {giving player credit} unless you want to perform it yourself. 15
GREETING Anger 50 We have nothing to discuss until you've dealt with Benny. 16
GREETING Happy 50 I'm sure you found Benny's demise pleasing. The destruction of an enemy... there are few things more satisfying. 17
GREETING Neutral 50 Let's press on, shall we? As I was telling you before, I want Mr. House out of the picture. 18
Anger 50 You have an interest in his death, too. If he knows that you destroyed his {for lack of a better term} gadgets beneath the Fort, he will strike back. 19
Neutral 50 You know where to find him. How he dies, I leave up to you. 20
GREETING Anger 50 Until Mr. House has been dealt with, you and I have nothing to talk about. 21
GREETING Happy 50 I've read Mr. House's obituary. Had a high opinion of himself, didn't he? 22
GREETING Anger 50 {seething} I spent months feeding the Omertas bribes, nursing their betrayal, and you've ruined all that. 23
GREETING Anger 50 {seething} Do you have any idea how much effort it took to place a mole at McCarran who could plant that bomb on the monorail? The one you defused? 24
GREETING Anger 50 {seething} The garrison I placed at Nelson served a vital strategic function. Did you think you could wipe it out and I wouldn't find out? 25
GREETING Anger 50 {seething} Weeks were spent convincing the Great Khans to join the Legion, but you've ruined all that. {louder} Haven't you? 26
GREETING Happy 50 With Mr. House out of the way, I can focus on smoothing out a few {slight beat} lingering complications elsewhere in the Mojave. 27
Neutral 50 First up are the Boomers of Nellis Air Force Base, a tribe so reclusive, it lobs artillery shells at anyone who comes near their settlement. 28
Neutral 50 I want you to offer them an alliance with my Legion. My terms are simple: target their guns against the NCR side of the dam when I assault it... 29
Anger 50 ...and they can keep their freedom. If you find they aren't amenable to this offer, destroy them. 30
GREETING Neutral 50 It's reached me that you killed Silus before he could talk. I approve. 31
GREETING Neutral 50 I understand that you freed Silus before he could talk. I approve. 32
Happy 50 Silus dishonored himself when he let himself be captured, and he'll pay the price for that. But the NCR didn't learn anything valuable. 33
GREETING Anger 50 Have you brought news of the Boomers? 34
GREETING Neutral 50 {SUDDEN PAIN} I would've asked you to forge an alliance with the White Glove Society, but you've already killed its leaders. So instead - 35
Pained 100 {sudden, excruciating pain in head} {gritting teeth} Ehhhh! Goddammit! 36
GREETING Neutral 50 {SUDDEN PAIN} I want you to forge an alliance between Caesar's Legion and the White Glove Society. 37
Neutral 50 They used to be cannibals. I expect that information can be used to manipulate them. Go to -{stopping short as pain eplodes inside head} 38
Pained 100 {sudden, excruciating pain in head} {gritting teeth} Ehhhh! Goddammit! 39
GREETING Anger 100 {limping off to bed, head feels like it's being crushed} Goddammit, go away! Come back when I've had some sleep! 40
GREETING Anger 50 {head feels like it's being crushed} I warned you not to bother me! 41
Anger 100 Praetorians, kill this asshole! 42
GREETING Neutral 50 {recovered from yesterday's sudden headache} The last time we met, I believe we were talking about the White Glove Society? 43
GREETING Neutral 50 Have you been successful in your efforts to recruit the White Glove Society? 44
GREETING Anger 50 {ABSENCE SEIZURE} I want you to destroy the Mojave Chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel. It's not a full-strength chapter, mind you. The Profligates...{trail off. Absence seizure begins} 45
Sad 50 ...{breathe through nostrils for several seconds} 46
Sad 100 Urh...{continue breathing through nostrils} 47
GREETING Anger 50 {Caesar heading for bed} {tired} If you interfere with me getting some sleep again, I'm going to have you killed. {resolved} We will talk later. 48
GREETING Anger 100 {tired, growing angry} You want to die? Fine! 49
Anger 100 {shouting for guards, voice weaker than usual} Praetorians! Kill this asshole! 50
GREETING Neutral 50 Has the Brotherhood been destroyed? 51
GREETING Pained 50 {Brotherhood resolved} I want you to join me in my tent. You and I are going to have a private conversation. 52
GREETING Neutral 50 All right, let's state the obvious. There's something wrong with me. 53
Neutral 50 The headaches started a couple months ago. They weren't too bad at first... but now they come frequently and they're... {beat} debilitating. 54
Fear 50 For the past two weeks, my left leg has been dragging. It's stiffer, hard to move. And you've seen me blank out. 55
Anger 50 Lucius says I stare into space, blink a few times, then keep talking like nothing happened. So what's the diagnosis? 56
GREETING Happy 50 {Successful surgery} I thank you for saving my life. You're a warrior {emphasis} and a healer - a rare combination. 57
GREETING Happy 50 I thank you for saving my life. Arcade will be a fine addition to my retinue. 58
GREETING Happy 50 I thank you for saving my life. The Auto-Doc module you recovered did the trick. 59
GREETING Anger 50 I trust this payment is adequate compensation for your troubles. Now, lest we grow sentimental here... 60
GREETING Anger 50 The time for battle will soon be upon us. {Le-GAH-tus La-nee-OOS} Legatus Lanius draws nigh. When he arrives, my Legion will assault Hoover Dam. 61
Happy 50 In the meantime, the Profligates have prepared a welcome gift for us. The President of the NCR intends to visit Hoover Dam. 62
GREETING Happy 100 You {slight beat} dispatched President Kimball with real skill. Right under their noses, too - {enjoying it} what a humiliation. 63
GREETING Anger 50 {seething} Why did you not attack President Kimball? 64
GREETING Anger 50 {seething} President Kimball was there on the Dam, right before you. And yet he lives. {beat} How did you fuck this up? 65
GREETING Anger 50 {Kimball quest resolved} My forces are in position to assault the Dam. {Leh-GAH-tus Lah-Nee-OOS} Legatus Lanius has assumed command. 66
Surprise 50 Are you ready to go to him? To tell him to begin the assault? 67
GREETING Anger 50 You know everything you need to know. Be on your way. 68
GREETING Neutral 50 {MASTER QUESTION NODE} What did you want to know? 69
GREETING Neutral 50 {MASTER QUESTION NODE} What else did you want to know? 70
GREETING Anger 50 {MASTER QUESTION NODE} Even with the Boomers to deal with, you have questions? 71
GREETING Anger 50 {MASTER QUESTION NODE} Even with the White Glove Society to deal with, you have questions? 72
GREETING Anger 50 {MASTER QUESTION NODE} Even with the Brotherhood to deal with, you have questions? 73
GREETING Anger 50 {MASTER QUESTION NODE} Even with a President to kill, you have questions? 74
GREETING Anger 50 {MASTER QUESTION NODE} Even on the brink of the final battle, you have questions? 75
GREETING Anger 50 Allow me to make this clear. Because you've been of service to me, I will forgive your crimes against my Legion this one time. 76
Anger 50 In the future, if I become aware that you've committed other crimes, I'll have my Praetorians butcher you before my eyes. 77
GREETING Anger 50 If you've committed any other crimes, this is the time to confess them, because after today there will be no forgiveness. 78
GREETING Anger 100 I warned you about this. {to your guards} Praetorians, slaughter this degenerate! 79
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic000 The President's visit was cancelled. I never got the opportunity to attack him. Anger 50 {controlled anger} When I command you to complete a mission, you will complete it, or you should die in the attempt. 80
Anger 50 I will overlook this error, but only because I think you can still be useful. 81
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic003 Goodbye. Anger 50 Come back when you have news about the Boomers. 82
Goodbye. Anger 50 Come back when you know more about the White Glove Society. 83
Goodbye. Anger 50 Return to me when you've destroyed the Brotherhood of Steel. 84
Goodbye. Anger 50 Come back when you've destroyed whatever you find down in that bunker. 85
Goodbye. Neutral 50 Complete your mission, then return to me. 86
Goodbye. Anger 50 {WAHL-ay} Vale. 87
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic005 Thank you, Caesar. Happy 50 Consider it the first of many {slight emphasis, you know your using a fancy word} bestowments. 88
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic006 I don't want to decide. Anger 50 What's wrong with you? This man shot you, stole from you, left you in the desert to die. 89
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic007 Can I set him free? Anger 50 You need to work on your bloodthirst. We won't speak again until Benny is dead. 90
Anger 50 Walk away if you want, but if you do, he's going up on a cross. You're still making a choice. 91
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic014 You should probably be talking to somebody else. Anger 50 Answer the question. 92
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic015 What do you know of the White Glove Society? Happy 50 There were tales once, of a cannibal tribe near Vegas, one that hid itself in a cavern far below ground, hunting men as prey above. 93
Happy 50 The scouts I occasionally sent west many years ago reported these tales, but never had contact. Well, except the ones who went missing, perhaps. 94
Anger 50 There are rumors that the White Gloves might be this lost tribe. Maybe you can help them find themselves. 95
How could savage cannibals run the Ultra-Luxe? Surprise 50 Culture is an odd thing. Sometimes a tribe grows tired of its identity, grabs for an opportunity to reimagine itself. 96
Neutral 50 The tribe becomes its own antithesis. Everything flips to the opposite polarity. 97
Surprise 50 Dialectics tells us that this can't last. There has to be a synthesis, a final sorting out. 98
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic016 How did you capture Benny? Surprise 50 I'll hand it to that piece of shit, he was determined. He used some kind of Old-World stealth device to get across the river in a Legion boat.{get alternate take with "him" instead of "that piece of shit"} 99
Neutral 50 Seems the device ran out of juice once he got here, but he was dressed like a Legionary. He was caught just outside the weather station. 100
Happy 50 See, thing is, he didn't change his hairstyle. {amused at Benny's stupidity} To go through all that effort and fail because you're too vain to muss your hair... 101
What happened after Benny was caught? Neutral 50 He was brought before me, along with the Platinum Chip. That's how I knew he wasn't some kind of Profligate infiltrator. 102
Happy 50 Benny tried to sell me a story, but Lucius has a way coaxing the truth out of captives. {not just the truth} Everything just comes spilling out. 103
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic018 I've already reverted the White Glove Society back to cannibalism. Neutral 50 All right, that's a start. But now you have to convince them to support my Legion. 104
Happy 50 Tell them they'll be allowed to continue practicing their {beat} dietary habits without interruption. {slightly amused} They can eat a portion of what they conquer. 105
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic019 What do you think of the NCR? Surprise 50 Do you want my opinion as a former citizen, or future conqueror? {shrug} Actually, my opinion's the same either way. 106
Anger 50 As a young man I was taught to venerate {mocking slightly} President Tandi of Shady Sands. "The Founding Mother of the New California Republic." 107
Neutral 50 Did you know her Presidency lasted 52 years? And that her father, Aradesh, was the Republic's first President? 108
Anger 50 Does that sound like democracy to you, or a hereditary dictatorship? 109
President Tandi was voted into office each time. Neutral 50 Because the council didn't dare oppose her. She was too popular. She had the people's love. 110
Neutral 50 So things ran smoothly, more or less. And as soon as she was gone, as soon as there really could be "democracy" - what happened then? 111
Anger 50 Ever since losing its queen, the NCR has been weaker, more diffuse. Democracy has been its weakness, not its strength. 112
How is the NCR weak? Disgust 50 Greed runs rampant. The government is corrupt, accepting bribes from Brahmin barons and landowners, to the detriment of citizens. 113
Disgust 50 The NCR is a loose conglomerate of individuals looking out for themselves. It's lost virtue. No one cares about the collective, the greater good. 114
Disgust 50 It's not built to last. I'm just hastening the inevitable. 115
Surely, the NCR is a powerful foe? Neutral 50 Of course. The most powerful my Legion has faced. Also the first to which I am {beat} ideologically opposed. 116
Anger 50 Until now, every tribe I've conquered has been so backwards and stunted, enslavement has been a gift bestowed upon them. 117
Surprise 50 My conquest of the Mojave will be a glorious triumph, marking the transition of the Legion from a basically nomadic tribe to a genuine empire. 118
Happy 50 Just as my namesake campaigned in Gaul before he crossed the Rubicon, so have I campaigned, and will cross the Colorado. 119
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic020 What do you know about Mr. House? Disgust 50 I know he's a coward, hiding behind an army of robots, ensconced in that tower of his like {beat as you think of it} a wizard in one of those Grognak comic books. 120
Anger 50 Some say he's a man, others, a machine. I don't care. He's in the way. 121
What did you know about Mr. House? Anger 50 I know he's dead. I know he's no longer a factor. That's all I need to know. 122
Disgust 50 Losers don't matter in the history books. He's a fucking footnote. 123
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic021 What role will regional powers play in the conflict? Neutral 50 I've analyzed the region's tribes to determine how they might be useful. I may tell you more at a later time, if it suits me. 124
What role will regional powers play in the conflict? Neutral 50 {Safety lines} Here, this document has clear instructions on what to do next. 125
Neutral 50 Here, these written orders make it plain. 126
Neutral 50 These written orders will tell you what to do next. 127
What role will regional powers play in the conflict? Neutral 50 See {WULH-pace} Vulpes for details about your next mission. 128
Neutral 50 For further instructions, see {WULH-pace} Vulpes. 129
Neutral 50 Go see {WULH-pace} Vulpes. He'll brief you. 130
What role will regional powers play in the conflict? Neutral 50 Go see Lucius for details about your next mission. 131
Neutral 50 For further instructions, see Lucius. 132
Neutral 50 Go see Lucius. He'll brief you. 133
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic022 How did you rise to power? Surprise 50 Ironically, I was born a Profligate myself, a citizen of the NCR. 134
Sad 50 My family lived not far from the great Boneyard. After Raiders killed my father, my mother sought the Followers' protection. I was two years old. 135
Neutral 50 She found work at their Library, cooking and cleaning. I learned how to read and soon I was taking courses, free of charge. 136
You were a Follower of the Apocalypse? Sad 50 Oh yes, raised in that tradition. And the teaching stuck. I was taught it was my responsibility to bring the torch of knowledge to the wastes. 137
Happy 50 {joking about your conquests} I may have taken the torch part more literally than they intended. 138
What changed you from a Follower to dictator? Neutral 50 When I was 20, the Followers sent me East to Grand Canyon. It was my first expedition, just me and a physician named Calhoun. 139
Anger 50 As an anthropologist and linguist, my assignment was to learn the dialects of the Grand Canyon tribes. What a fucking waste of time!{get alternate take with "What a waste of time that would've been!"} 140
Why would learning dialects be a waste of time? Anger 50 If you think it's worthwhile to make smart people learn how to talk like backward savages, you're a Follower of the Apocalypse... or an idiot. 141
Neutral 50 Anyway, we met up with a Mormon missionary who already knew a bunch of dialects - Joshua Graham. He was supposed to teach me. 142
Neutral 50 But before that went too far, the Blackfoot tribe captured us, to hold us for ransom. 143
Surprise 50 They were a backward bunch. But the real problem was, they didn't know how to fight. 144
What was wrong with the Blackfoot? Neutral 50 The Blackfoot were at war with seven other tribes, each just as pissant as they were. But outnumbered like that, they weren't going to last long. 145
Anger 50 It's one thing to be taken hostage, another to be lashed to a sinking ship. So over Calhoun's objections, I decided to take certain steps. 146
What steps did you take? Neutral 50 I taught them how to use the guns they already had - how to strip and clean them, how to breathe when pulling a trigger, how to reload ammunition. 147
Surprise 50 They looked at me like I was some kind of a sorcerer. So I taught them how to make explosives, and started drilling them on small unit tactics. 148
Happy 50 {amused} If there's anything I learned as a Follower of the Apocalypse, it's that there's a lot of good information in old books. 149
What happened after you trained the Blackfoot? Neutral 50 {LATIN} {dih-WE-day et im-PEER-ah} Divide et impera - divide and conquer. I led the Blackfoot against the Ridgers, their weakest enemy. 150
Neutral 50 When they refused to surrender, I ordered every man, woman, and child killed. When next we surrounded the Kaibabs and they likewise refused... 151
Anger 50 I took one of their envoys to the Ridgers' village and showed him the corpse piles. 152
Surprise 50 This was new for the tribes, you see. They played at war, raiding each other, a little rape and pillage here, a little ransoming there. 153
Happy 50 I showed them total warfare. Like I said, there's a lot you can learn from old books. 154
What happened to the tribes? Neutral 50 The Kaibabs joined me, and the Fredonians after that - all the pissant tribes, with names that should be forgotten. 155
Anger 50 I knew from the start I'd need to eradicate this plague of tribal identities, replacing them with a monolithic culture, a uniform identity. 156
Neutral 50 So that's what I did, once my confederation of tribes was large enough. I crowned myself {KAI-zar} Caesar and created a single Great Tribe - my Legion. 157
Anger 50 I sent Calhoun, the Follower captured with me, back West with a message that I should not be interfered with. 158
Neutral 50 Joshua Graham, the Mormon interpreter, stayed with me and served as my first {leh-GAH-tus} Legatus. 159
And since forming the Legion, all you've done is conquer other tribes? Neutral 50 That's right. Decades of warfare, absorbing lesser tribes, gathering power. Forging the dross into a vast, razor-sharp scythe. 160
Neutral 50 My Legion's expansion has never ceased. Much of the Utah and Colorado, and all of Arizona and New Mexico, are mine. 161
Happy 50 We have cities of our own, but nothing compared to Vegas. Finally, my Legion will have its Rome. 162
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic023 Why is Caesar's Legion so... strange? Neutral 50 I used imperial Rome as the model for my Legion precisely because it was so foreign, so {beat} alien. 163
Disgust 50 I'd seen what had become of the NCR's attempts to emulate the culture of Pre-War America - the in-fighting, the corruption. 164
Neutral 50 Rome was a highly militarized autocracy that effectively integrated the foreign cultures it conquered. 165
Surprise 50 It dedicated its citizens to something higher than themselves - to the idea of Rome itself. 166
Surprise 50 In Rome I found a template for a society equal to the challenges of the post-apocalyptic world - a society that could and would survive. 167
Neutral 50 A society that could prevent mankind from fracturing and destroying itself in this new world, by establishing a new {packs Ro-MAH-na} Pax Romana. 168
What does "Pax Romana" mean? Neutral 50 It means a {taking time with each term} nationalist, imperialist, totalitarian, homogenous culture that obliterates the identity of every group it conquers. 169
Surprise 50 Long-term stability at all costs. The individual has no value beyond his utility to the state, whether as an instrument of war, or production. 170
So you'll destroy the NCR because you hate its inefficiencies? Anger 50 No, I'll destroy it because it's inevitable that it be destroyed. It's {heh-GEHL-ee-an} Hegelian Dialectics, not personal animosity. 171
Hegelian Dialectics? What are those? Happy 50 {enjoying the superiority of teacher} How do I put this basically enough? It's a philosophical theory, the kind you might encounter if you took time to read some books. 172
Neutral 50 The fundamental premise is to envision history as a sequence of "dialectical" conflicts. Each dialectic begins with a proposition, a {emphasis} thesis... 173
Neutral 50 ...which inherently contains, or creates, its opposite - an antithesis. Thesis and antithesis. The conflict is inevitable. 174
Neutral 50 But the resolution of the conflict yields something new - a synthesis - eliminating the flaws in each, leaving behind common elements and ideas. 175
So what's "dialectic" about you and the NCR? Anger 50 The bombs wiped the slate clean. Human civilization descended to a level of ignorance that effectively set our cultural progress back to zero. 176
Disgust 50 The NCR has all of the problems of the ancient Roman Republic - extreme bureaucracy, corruption, extensive senatorial infighting. 177
Neutral 50 Just as with the ancient Republic, it is natural that a military force should conquer and transform the NCR into a military dictatorship. 178
Surprise 50 Thesis and antithesis. The Colorado River is my Rubicon. The NCR council will be {beat} eradicated, but the new synthesis will change the Legion as well... 179
Neutral 50 ...from a basically nomadic army to a standing military force that protects its citizens, {finality} and the power of its dictator. 180
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic024 What is that machine in your tent? Neutral 50 It's called an Auto-Doc. As the name suggests, it's an automated physician - more or less. 181
Neutral 50 It can treat broken bones, cuts, punctures, scrapes. Sometimes I bestow its use upon someone I favor. 182
Happy 50 Makes for a powerful gift, in a culture that forbids painkillers and is largely ignorant of medical science. 183
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic024DUPLICATE000 What is that machine in your tent? Neutral 50 It's called an Auto-Doc. As the name suggests, it's an automated physician - more or less. 184
Neutral 50 It can treat broken bones, cuts, punctures, scrapes. Sometimes I bestow its use upon someone I favor. 185
Surprise 50 Makes for a powerful gift, in a culture that forbids painkillers and is largely ignorant of medical science. 186
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic025 Are you all right? Pained 100 {fighting through the pain} Fuck this, I'm going to lie down! 187
Pained 100 {fighting through the pain} Come back later - tomorrow! 188
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic025DUPLICATE000 Are you all right? Anger 50 {fighting through the pain} Fuck this, I'm going to lie down! 189
Pained 100 {fighting through the pain} Come back later - tomorrow! 190
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic027 It will be an honor to fight for the Legion. Happy 50 {satisfied grunt - responding to the player's readiness} Good. {LATIN} {In the sign of the bull you will conquer} {En hock SIG-no Tor-OOS VINH-chase} "In hoc signo taurus vinces." 191
Anger 50 Report to {Leh-GAH-tus LAH-nee-oos} Legatus Lanius immediately - he'll brief you on the plan of battle. Come back victorious, or don't come back. 192
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic028 I must prepare myself before I go. Anger 50 Then be quick about it. 193

Is this the first time you've experienced sudden onset headaches? Pained 100 [SUCCEEDED] {having some difficulty speaking} Never this... bad before. 194

VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic032 I'll handle the Boomers for you. Neutral 50 Good. Your first challenge will be to reach their settlement without getting blown up. After that, should be easy. 198
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic033
[Speech]{Try to convince Caesar of the Brotherhood's usefulness.}
When the Legion attacks Hoover Dam, the Brotherhood will attack HELIOS One. Anger 50 [SUCCEEDED] And you think the value of their attack on HELIOS, the chaos it will sow behind the Profligates' lines, is worth letting them live. 199
Neutral 50 All right, let it be so. The Brotherhood will have to be dealt with eventually, but for the moment, they {getting one over on them} live to serve. 200
When we attack the dam the Brotherhood will rise from their bunker to conquer HELIOS One! Anger 50 [FAILED] And you think they'll stop at that? How long before they attack the dam, or Vegas? 201
Anger 50 The risks outweigh the rewards. Go back to their bunker and finish the job. 202
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic034 Mr. House sent me to infiltrate your camp. Anger 50 Mission accomplished, asshole. {playing with him} I never would've suspected a thing if you hadn't told me - but now I'll have to have you killed. 203

You're limping when you walk. How long has that been going on? Anger 50 [SUCCEEDED] {intense pain} A week, maybe two... {frustrated} it doesn't matter! 204
You don't look so good. Anger 100 [FAILED] {growled, drawn out} Fuck off. 205
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic037 What were you saying about the White Glove Society? Anger 50 {meaning it} Disturb me again and I'll have you killed! 206
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic038 I'll eliminate Mr. House for you. Neutral 50 Good. {beat} I don't know what kind of security he has inside the Lucky 38, but if you can find a way of catching him off-guard, do so. 207
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic040 I've already wiped out the Boomers' leadership. Surprise 50 {mildly surprised} Is that right? You are good, aren't you? 208
Neutral 50 If the Boomers are out of the picture, I can focus on other preparations - but not without first rewarding your initiative. {beat} Now moving on... 209
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic041 I've already won over the Boomers. They'll do as I say. Surprise 50 {mildly surprised} Is that so? You are good, aren't you? 210
Neutral 50 If the Boomers will toe the line, I can focus on other preparations. But not without first rewarding your initiative. {beat} Now moving on... 211
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic042 The last time we met, your head seemed ready to explode. Anger 50 {irritated} I get headaches every once in a while. So what? {switching modes} Anyway, we have other matters to discuss. 212
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic043 What about the White Glove Society? Anger 50 I was saying that I'd planned to ask you to forge an alliance with them, but you killed their leaders. 213
Anger 50 By the time the White Gloves sort themselves out, the battle for Hoover Dam will have come and gone. So, on to the next matter at hand... 214
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic044 I'll see what I can work out with the White Glove Society. Neutral 50 The leader of the tribe is a woman named Marjorie. My understanding is that she strongly opposes a {slight emphasis} reversion to cannibalism. 215
Surprise 50 If she's intractable, you might find Mortimer, her second-in-command, more flexible. 216
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic046
[Medicine options!!!]
I'm concerned your headaches might be symptoms of a more serious condition. Pained 50 [SUCCEEDED] I appreciate your concern, but I'm in excellent health. And we have other matters to discuss. 217
Do you get headaches a lot? Anger 50 [FAILED]{irritated} Only when you're around.{leads to "So I get headaches every once in a while..."} 218
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic047 Are you okay? Sad 50 Hmm...{breathe through nose} 219
Sad 50 {as though waking from a cat nap} Huh... Yeah. Yeah. 220
Sad 50 {tired, unaware you aren't making sense} Yeah, the Brotherhood. Them. 221
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic049
[Medicine options]
You just experienced an Absence Seizure. Was this the first time? Sad 50 [SUCCEEDED] {tired} I don't know... There have been a couple... 222
What were you daydreaming about? Sad 50 [FAILED] {tired} I'm... I'm not sure. {confused} What was I saying? {remembering, to yourself} That's right, the Brotherhood... 223
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic050 You just blanked out for several seconds. Sad 50 {tired} It's nothing. Just tired, that's all. 224
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic051 Where do I find the Brotherhood? How do I destroy them? Sad 50 {tired} Look for the Brotherhood's bunker around, uh... {trying to remember} Hidden Valley. My scouts... saw some things. 225
Sad 50 I'm going to bed. We'll talk later. 226
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic052
[Medicine option]
I'm concerned you may have a serious neurological condition. Pained 50 [SUCCEEDED] {tired} Don't... just leave it alone. I'm fine. Now what was I saying...? Right. 227
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic053 I think we should talk about your health. Anger 50 Take care of the Brotherhood. {beat - considering it, tantamount to admitting there's a problem} Maybe then we can have a conversation. 228
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic054 Seriously, let's talk about your health. Anger 50 {back the fuck off} I said, take care of the Brotherhood. Then we talk - maybe. 229
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic055 What about the Auto-Doc in your tent? Neutral 50 It's never had a functional diagnostic scanning module. Without that, it's useless for surgery. 230
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic056
[Medicine Check]
I'm afraid your symptoms are consistent with a brain lesion, most likely a tumor. Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] {not surprised} I figured as much. 231
Anger 50 Congratulations, you just became my personal physician. Do you have what you need to treat my condition? 232
I don't know. Sounds serious, though. Anger 50 [FAILED]{pretty obvious, asshole} Yeah, it does. So if you can't help me, who can? 233
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic057
[Speech Check.]
Straight-forward case of intra-cranial blastoma fibrolosis, I wager. Surprise 50 [SUCCEEDED] {no idea what that diagnosis is} I'm not familiar with that condition. Is it treatable? 234
Sounds like a moderately severe case of Skullatosis. Anger 50 [FAILED] {the player is full of shit} There's nothing "moderate" about the severity of this. And if you're going to make up names for diseases, come up with good ones. 235
Anger 50 If you can't help me, who can? 236
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic058
[Medicine Check 75+]
I can perform the surgery, but I'll need proper tools and supplies from a Doctor's Bag. Fear 50 [SUCCEEDED] Then gather those items together and hurry back to perform the operation. I don't know how long I've got. 237
Even with proper Surgical Tools, an operation of this sort might be beyond me. Anger 50 [FAILED] Then gather the tools you need, and study up on your medical skills. 238
Fear 50 When you're confident you can perform the operation, hurry back. I don't know how long I've got. 239
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic060 You guaranteed my safety. Surprise 100 And you fell for that? Really? Because I'm going to have you killed now. 240
You guaranteed my safety. Anger 50 You do know why I wanted to meet you, right? 241
Neutral 50 A man nearly kills you, so you track him across the breadth of the Mojave? 242
You guaranteed my safety. Surprise 50 You arrive on the Strip and waltz into the Lucky 38 like someone left you a key under the doormat? 243
You guaranteed my safety. Surprise 50 You assassinate the head of the Chairmen {emphasis} in his own casino - and get away with it? 244
You guaranteed my safety. Surprise 50 You visit the Tops, and next thing you know, the head of the Chairmen is fleeing the Strip like a whimpering little pup? 245
You guaranteed my safety. Surprise 50 Then something happens to Mr. House's robots - some kind of military upgrade? 246
You guaranteed my safety. Happy 50 But the topper, the {coo de gras, "s" not silent} coup de grâce? Mr. House dies - while you're visiting him at the Lucky 38.{grunt of admiration} 247
You guaranteed my safety. Happy 50 When you set your mind to something, you get results. I like that. 248
You guaranteed my safety. Happy 50 {beat} ...Relax. I'm fucking with you. 249
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic065 I've already destroyed the Brotherhood's bunker in Hidden Valley. Surprise 50 {surprised} You destroyed the Brotherhood's bunker? {chuckle of admiration} Very well. 250
Neutral 50 I'll trust your word, and reward you as though you {playing with the language a bit} wreaked this destruction at my behest. 251
Anger 50 Of course, if the Brotherhood should suddenly rise up to oppose my rule, you will be held responsible. {beat to let it sink in} Now, moving on... 252
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic066 I'll destroy the Brotherhood. Neutral 50 Good. Two of my scouts have reported seeing patrols of men in power armor near Hidden Valley. Begin your search there. 253
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic067 Is it really necessary to destroy the Brotherhood? Anger 50 {irritated} If I say the Brotherhood should be destroyed, it's necessary. 254
Anger 50 My Legion can win a fight against the Brotherhood of Steel, but it would be costly. Your job is to make sure there's no Brotherhood for us to fight. 255
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic068 I won't destroy the Brotherhood of Steel. Anger 50 Is that so? 256
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic069 I've destroyed the Brotherhood of Steel's bunker in Hidden Valley. Happy 50 Very well. This latest victory brings to a close my efforts to reshape the power balance of the Mojave - and not a minute too soon... 257
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic071 I've been inside the Brotherhood's bunker, but I haven't destroyed it yet. Anger 50 {no-nonsense} Then get yourself back there, and get it done. 258
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic073 I'll kill President Kimball for you. Happy 50 That's what I like to hear. 259
Neutral 50 One of my {froo-men-TAR-ee} Frumentarii has set up camp near Hoover Dam. His name his {KAY-toh Hos-TIL-ee-oos} Cato Hostilius. 260
Neutral 50 Go to him. He'll have further instructions. 261
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic074 Won't killing President Kimball just anger the NCR? Anger 50 {setting player straight} I don't have to explain the reasoning behind my commands. I just give them - and you do them. 262
Anger 50 That said, every once in a while I hear something so ignorant, I have to respond. This is one of those times. 263
Anger 50 The Profligates' morale is in the shitter. They've occupied the Mojave for years, getting picked off one by one. They were told it'd be easy. 264
Surprise 50 They keep being told that victory is right around the corner, that Vegas will roll over, become the sixth state of their little union. 265
Happy 50 It's President Kimball who's been telling them that. When he dies, the enormity of his lies will come crashing down, the punchline to a bad joke. 266
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic075 I'm not going to kill the NCR's President. Anger 50 Oh? You're going to {beat} defy me? 267
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic076 You're in possession of something that interests me. Anger 50 We'll deal with Benny when the time comes. In the meantime... 268
I need to get that Platinum Chip back. Anger 50 We'll talk about the Platinum Chip when the time comes. In the meantime... 269
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic077 I had to see the Mighty Caesar with my own eyes. Happy 50 Maybe I should have you struck blind so my face is the last sight you ever behold. {tiring of the jest, to business} Look...{transitioning to "You do know why I wanted to meet you, right?"} 270
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic078 Death to tyrants! <Start combat.> Anger 50 Praetorians, to arms! 271
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic079 That I'd decorate this tent with your guts. Fear 100 {Pray-TOR-ee-ahns} Praetorians, to me! 272
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic080
[Speech Check 65+]
It's a simple procedure... as brain surgeries go. Happy 50 [SUCCEEDED] Then go find some proper Surgical Tools. The medications from a Doctor's Bag might come in handy, too. 273
Fear 50 I'll make sure you're allowed to bring the necessary medications into the camp. Hurry back. I don't know how long I've got. 274
I'll need a vise... or a large nutcracker... Anger 50 [FAILED] If you think this is funny, you should give crucifixion a try. Now that's hilarious. 275
Anger 50 If you can't help me, who can? 276
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic082 There was no reasonable chance of success. Anger 50 {controlled anger} When I command you to complete a mission, you will complete it, or you should die in the attempt. 277
Anger 50 You lost me a great opportunity to deal a blow to the Profligates' morale. If not for the service you've rendered unto me, I'd have you crucified. 278
Anger 50 I will overlook this error, but only because I think you can still be useful. 279
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic086 One of my companions, Arcade, has medical expertise. You could take him as a slave. Surprise 50 And where is this Arcade? 280
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic088 And once I'm inside? Neutral 50 I want you to destroy whatever you find in there. And then I want you to come back here and tell me about it. 281
And once I'm inside? Disgust 50 So go to the building and take this {weary of it} fucking Platinum Chip with you. My Legionaries will meet you there, with your weapons and equipment. 282
And once I'm inside? Happy 50 Talk to Benny on your way out. He knows I'm going to let you decide how he dies. Maybe you want to remind him. 283
And once I'm inside? Anger 50 {Get your ass moving already} Goodbye. 284
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic089 I should be going. Anger 50 I'm not asking you to do this. I'm telling you. 285
Anger 50 Now take the Platinum Chip, go down in that bunker or whatever it is, and destroy whatever gizmo-happy Brahmin shit you find. {business concluded} Now get to it. {WAH-lay} Vale. 286
I should be going. Anger 50 I'm not asking you to do this. I'm telling you. 287
Anger 50 Now take the Platinum Chip, go to the bunker or whatever it is, and destroy whatever gizmo-happy Brahmin shit you find down there. 288
Happy 50 And just in case you're thinking of {beat} slipping away, now that you've finally got that Platinum Chip in your hands? 289
Anger 50 Go ahead, try that. And I'll have you hunted down, and your head mounted on a pole. {business concluded} Now get to it. {WAH-lay} Vale. 290
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic090 I'm still working on the Boomers. Anger 50 I expect results sooner rather than later. 291
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic093 <Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 {WUHL-pace in-CUHL-tah} Vulpes Inculta, the best of my {froo-men-TAR-ee} frumentarii, is dead. 292
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 {player killed Omerta leaders} All the bribes I sent to the Omertas ended up buying me {beat} nothing. 293
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 {Player spoiled his plans for the Great Khans.} The Great Khans aren't exactly clamoring to fight for my Legion now. 294
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 The garrison I established at Nelson has been wiped out. 295
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 Years of meticulous scheming to place a mole at Camp McCarran - wasted. 296
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 The Kings of Freeside are cooperating with the NCR now, which frees up soldiers to defend the dam. 297
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 You even disrupted a promising weapons deal with the Van Graffs. 298
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Surprise 50 Is it any wonder my Legion has so little love for you? 299
<Inert Node to hold lines for how player has troubled Legion.> Anger 50 So tell me this, because I really want to know. I am feared - with good reason. 300
Anger 50 But you - of all people - dare to come here and stand before me, the mighty {KAI-zar} Caesar. {beat} What were you thinking? 301
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic094 <INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 You spread word of the massacre of Nipton, just like {WUHL-pace} Vulpes asked you. 302
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 Beams of light shot down from the sky over HELIOS One, killing who knows how many Profligate troops. 303
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 Silus, the {Ken-TOO-ree-on} Centurion who let himself get captured, died at McCarran before he could reveal sensitive information. 304
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 You freed the {Ken-TOO-ree-on} Centurion Silus from McCarran so that he might be punished for his cowardice. 305
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 The monorail that the Profligates rode from McCarran to the Strip has been destroyed. 306
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 You turned Camp Forlorn Hope into a mass grave. 307
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 Chief Hanlon, a nemesis of my Legion, died the humiliating death he deserved. 308
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 In Boulder City, you let the renegade Khans go free, but left NCR troopers gurgling on the ground, drowning in their own blood. 309
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 50 A number of NCR Ranger stations have been wiped off the face of the Mojave, thanks to you. 310
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Happy 80 {ironic} The Profligates still hate me more than they hate you, I think, but I've been at this longer than you have. 311
<INERT NODE TO HOLD LINES FOR HOW PLAYER HAS TROUBLED NCR.> Anger 50 I get it. We share a common enemy. And now you come before the mighty {KAI-zar} Caesar to what - offer your services? 312
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic095 How do you know so much about me? Anger 50 I have eyes and ears everywhere. {kind of obvious} It behooves me not to invade the west blind and deaf. 313
Neutral 50 It hasn't been hard to track your progress. It's not as though you've been keeping a low profile. 314
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic096 He's standing right outside your tent. Happy 50 I'll have my guards take him captive. If he cures my condition, I'll see to it that your reward is several times his value. 315
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic097 What's on the other side of those doors? Happy 50 Benny's theory, if I understood it through all the screaming, was that Mr. House stashed some kind of ultimate weapon down there. 316
Anger 50 A gigantic robot to stomp us all to death, who cares? Whatever it is, House built it, so I want it destroyed. 317
What's on the other side of those doors? Anger 50 I don't know. And I don't like not knowing. 318
Neutral 50 {there's an alternate take with "couldn't" instead of "can't"} I know Mr. House built it. I'm thinking it's probably some kind of weapon that he can't activate from a distance. 319
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic099 How may I serve your Legion, Caesar? Happy 50 {pleased} I like the servile attitude. Keep it up. 320
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic102 What were you looking to start? Neutral 50 The time is fast approaching when my Legion will assault the great dam and invade the west. 321
What were you looking to start? Anger 30 Before that happens, I want Mr. House knocked out of the game, a quick one-two punch - with you doing the punching. 322
What were you looking to start? Anger 30 Before that happens, I want Mr. House erased from the picture. Not just the man you killed, but what he left behind. His legacy. 323
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic105 Can't your Legionaries take care of this? Neutral 50 Yes. But then I'd have to kill them. 324
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic106 Maybe Benny could do this for you. Anger 50 I wouldn't trust Benny to lick my boots clean. This one falls to you. 325
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic108 You should use Mr. House's technology to attack the dam. Anger 50 You don't get it, do you? The weapons I wield are forged from blood, flesh, sinew, bone - mortal stuff. Fragile, even. 326
Surprise 50 And yet my Legion obeys me, even unto death. Why? Because they live to serve the greater good, and they know of no alternatives. 327
Disgust 50 House's machines, his technologies - what do they propose? The possibility of victory without sacrifice. No blood spilled, just... rivets. 328
Anger 50 That's not an idea to be put in circulation. If mankind's going to survive this moment in history, it needs warriors, not {contempt} gadgets. 329
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic109 I'll bring him to you. Happy 50 All right. Just leave him outside the tent when you return. If he cures my condition, I'll see to it that your reward is several times his value. 330
I'll bring him to you. Fear 50 Be on your way, then. And try not to take too long. 331
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic110 The cannibals among the White Glove Society are dead. Anger 50 They'll be of no use to the Legion, then. 332
Anger 50 You squandered a potentially valuable resource. {direct} Do better with your next assignment or there will be trouble... 333
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic111 Where would I find a diagnostic scanning module? Neutral 50 It's been said that Auto-Docs were standard equipment in the underground Vaults where mankind survived when the bombs fell centuries ago. 334
Neutral 50 You can search the Vaults, but every Auto-Doc my Legion has run across has been stripped for parts long before we found it. 335
Surprise 50 {remembering, feeling hope} Some of my scouts did report an abandoned Vault near Nellis Air Force Base. Overrun by ghouls, they said. 336
Surprise 50 Maybe the infestation has been there long enough to keep scavengers out. Why don't you go and see? 337
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic112 Tell me about the Boomers. Neutral 50 The Boomers settled at the old air base northeast of Vegas many years ago. No one knows exactly how long it's been. 338
Anger 50 It may be that no one's traded with them or even spoken to them that entire time. If so, they're sitting on one hell of a stockpile of ammunition... 339
Don't you know anything about their society? Neutral 50 My scouts have seen people moving around the base. The perimeter is guarded, with spotters in towers directing the artillery fire. 340
Surprise 50 They must have extraordinary vision. Some of my scouts were targeted at extreme distances. 341
Anger 50 So no, I can't tell you what to expect inside the base. No one's been inside it, except them. 342
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic113 What do you think of the Brotherhood of Steel? Anger 50 The worst impulses of mankind, concentrated in one insane, backward tribe. 343
Anger 50 The Brotherhood seems to have formed not long after the great atomic war. It's hard to know - they care little for history. 344
Anger 80 Some of the Brotherhood scribes we captured further East didn't even know the name of their founder, Roger Maxson. 345
Anger 50 They like to pretty up their mission with trappings of chivalry, but the truth is they're horders. They horde technology. 346
Disgust 50 It's been 200 years, and they still have the mentality of scavengers. They say they're preserving these technologies, but for what? 347
Disgust 50 They have no vision. They offer no future. They're a dead end. 348
Couldn't you use the Brotherhood to your advantage? Anger 50 You don't think very far ahead, do you? 349
Anger 50 Sure, their hatred of the NCR would seem to qualify them for use as proxies. But then what do you do with them? Each paladin is quite powerful. 350
Anger 50 I'd have to be convinced that present benefits outweighed future costs. 351
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic114 What's your opinion of President Kimball? Surprise 50 A man of potential, held back by the {slight beat} craven political context he inhabits. You realize he was a general? "The Hero of the Mojave," they called him. 352
Happy 50 A title he earned by extirpating lesser tribes that dared attack NCR citizens. His responses were {approving} swift and draconian. 353
Anger 50 President Tandi, the "founding mother," coddled hostile tribes... but her successors were less naive, so they gave Kimball free rein. 354
Disgust 100 And after a respectable military career, what does he do? Become a {distaste} politician. 355
Isn't it natural for someone like Kimball to seek greater power? Disgust 50 But he did so by {disapproving} election. What better way to stunt the growth of leaders, not to mention whole cultures? 356
Anger 50 A leader shouldn't have to kowtow to those who serve him. With so much energy wasted on those below, how is he ever to move forward? 357
Surprise 50 Had he taken the government by force, used his army to stage a coup, things would be very different. 358
Anger 50 I'll just have to do it for him. 359
How will the NCR react to Kimball's death? Won't it just anger them? Happy 50 It'll frighten them. If I can reach out and kill whomever I choose, then they know the only reason they're alive is I haven't tried yet. 360
Surprise 50 You have to understand that Kimball is a symbol. Without him, there would be no NCR occupation of the Mojave. 361
Disgust 50 He mustered the troops - {distaste} as many as his senate would allow - and sent them in. All the right reasons, done all the wrong ways. 362
Disgust 50 Any invasion by a democracy is a half-measure. When Kimball dies, the NCR will {emphasis} recoil from the Mojave, and from his legacy. 363
Happy 50 By the time they recover and try to strike back, I'll be invading them. 364
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic115 I've heard rumors of your legate, Lanius. What's his story? Anger 50 {Lan-ee-OOS} Lanius is the greatest of my battlefield commanders. Some might call him a great man, but I'm not sure he qualifies. 365
Happy 50 Once, he was the greatest warrior of the Hidebarks, a tribe of the Arizona. Maniacal in battle. Sometimes he'd ambush Legion patrols {emphasis} by himself. 366
Neutral 50 When, after several {emphasis, usually campaigns are faster} months we found and surrounded the Hidebarks' camp, their Chieftain raised a banner of surrender. 367
Happy 50 The warrior who was not yet {Lan-ee-OOS} Lanius went insane with rage. {a pleasing memory} He struck down his Chieftain and attacked his own tribe. 368
What happened when Lanius attacked his own tribe? Neutral 50 He killed fifteen before they brought him down. He didn't die, obviously. 369
Neutral 50 I had him tended to. He was {beat} maimed, most of face torn off. It was days before he regained consciousness. 370
Neutral 50 When he did, I went to his bedside and showed him the helmet I'd had forged to cover his face. I said he could have it if he'd fight for me. 371
Happy 50 He accepted... on condition that he be allowed to kill the surviving males of his tribe. {chuckle} I said, make it the {emph} adult males and you have a deal.{Children are malleable and thus valuable to the Legion.} 372
He sounds more like a savage than a general. Happy 50 {Lan-ee-OOS} Lanius is savage. Savagely loyal, too, but only to me - he has no love for my Legion. But this has its uses. 373
Neutral 50 He has no attachment to his men, no compunction about battlefield losses. All he cares about is destroying the enemy. 374
Anger 50 When another legatus or a {Ken-TOO-ree-on} Centurion fails to achieve results, I send {Lah-nee-OOS} Lanius to make things right. 375
Happy 50 His first step is to beat the failed commander to death in front of his assembled troops. Then he orders the ritual of {deck-ih-MAH-tee-oh} decimatio. 376
What is "decimatio?" Neutral 50 It means "decimation," but in ancient Rome the word had a very specific meaning - a punishment for cowardice. 377
Neutral 50 The Legionaries are lined up in ranks. Every tenth man steps forward and is beaten to death by his brothers. 378
Happy 50 It instills a certain... robust obedience. 379
Lanius will lead the assault on Hoover Dam? Happy 50 {Lan-ee-OOS} Yes. This time my Legionaries will be more frightened of the commander behind them than the enemy before them. 380
Anger 50 There will be no failure this time, no retreat, no years of gathering slaves and resources for another assault. 381
Neutral 50 With {Lah-nee-OOS} Lanius to drive the Legion forward, the dam will be taken. It will be our {slight beat} bridgehead across the Colorado. 382
Why did the Legion lose the first battle? Anger 50 It's not going to happen again. That's all I have to say about it. 383
I've heard the commander of the first battle called "The Burned Man." Anger 50 And I've heard it's a bad idea to tempt the wrath of {KAI-zar} Caesar. Change the subject. 384
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic116 Tell me about Vulpes Inculta. Neutral 50 {WUHL-pace} Vulpes is the best of my {Froo-men-TAR-ee} Frumentarii. A remarkable individual from an unremarkable tribe south of the Utah. 385
Neutral 50 He was brought into the Legion as a boy, survived training, fought well enough as Legionary to be promoted to the rank of {deh-CAN-us} Decanus. 386
Anger 50 Then, in battle against an {dismissive} unimportant tribe, he broke ranks and led his {con-too-BUR-nee-um - a Roman squad} contubernium through a hole in their defenses to capture its chieftain. 387
Happy 50 {amused} Well, his {ken-too-REE-on} Centurion wanted him crucified for disobedience. So I made him a {froo-men-TAR-eye} Frumentari. 388
What do the Frumentarii do? Happy 50 Whatever I require. Infiltration, assassination, dramatic atrocities to break the spirit of the enemy - {souless, matter of fact} et {KEH-tur-ah} cetera. 389
Neutral 50 They're mentally flexible. They operate behind enemy lines for extended periods, imitating the enemy's customs without becoming {slight beat} sullied. 390
Happy 50 In all these things, {WUHL-pace} Vulpes is a master. 391
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic117 Are your bodyguards special in any way? Surprise 50 My Praetorians embody the martial ideals of my Legion. Each one of them has done enough conquering and killing to deserve the rank of {Ken-TOO-ree-on} Centurion. 392
Surprise 50 Instead, I invited them to join my guard. So the invitee chooses whichever current guard he thinks is weakest - and challenges him. 393
Happy 50 The fight is to the death. It keeps them from getting complacent. 394
How long has Lucius been the head of your Praetorians? Neutral 50 Lucius has been the head of my guard for five years now. He was a subordinate guard for eight before that. 395
Anger 50 No invitee has dared to challenge him yet. Maybe it's an issue of respect - he is getting on in years. 396
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic118 What should I expect at the dam? Neutral 50 {Lah-nee-OOS} Lanius will be waiting for you. Your arrival will signal to him that it's time to launch the attack. 397
Happy 50 As for what to expect, it's going to be the greatest battle - and victory - mankind has seen since it almost wiped itself off the face of this Earth. 398
Anger 50 Tactically, it's simple - kill and kill some more. I may have a few surprises in store for the NCR, but that won't concern you. 399
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic119 The White Glove Society has agreed to an alliance with Caesar's Legion. Neutral 50 {satisfied} Good. It will be valuable to have allies on the Strip when Hoover Dam is taken. {beat} Now, as for your next assignment... 400
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic124 I'll leave at once. Anger 50 {WAHL-ay} Vale. 401
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic125 There's no way the White Glove Society will be cannibals again - I've already seen to that. Anger 50 You've been resourceful in the past. Why are you a failure now? 402
Anger 50 You'd best step up your performance with this next assignment... 403
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic127 Why must Mr. House be killed? Anger 50 Because he complicates the equation of force. He's a free agent, an unpredictable element. 404
Surprise 50 I'm sure he's trying to sit out this battle, just as he did four years ago, hoping the Legion and Profligates will wipe each other out. 405
Happy 50 When he sees the Profligates losing this battle, however, he might throw his support behind them. Except he won't, because he'll be dead. 406
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic128 I'm done working for you. Anger 50 Mark my words, you piece of shit. This is the last time you will ever refuse to perform an order I've given you. 407
Anger 50 If you meant what you said, you best be on your way, and at good speed. And forget all that I could have given you. 408
Anger 50 If you ever - ever - disobey me again, I will order my Praetorians to hack you to death with their machetes for my entertainment. 409
I'm done working for you. Anger 50 I warned you about the price of disobedience. I guess you weren't listening. 410
Anger 100 Praetorians! Kill this nuisance! 411
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic129 I'm still working on the White Glove Society. Anger 50 {what the fuck are you doing talking to me, then?} Then get to it. 412
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic130 There may be another solution. Surprise 50 And what would that be? 413
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic131 I had to wipe out the Boomers' leaders. Neutral 50 A perfectly satisfactory way of resolving the threat they posed. It's impressive that you made it through their barrage. 414
Neutral 50 Now, as for your next assignment... 415
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic132 I've won over the Boomers. They'll do as I say. Neutral 50 Good. Make sure they help the Legion when the time comes. As for your next assignment... 416
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic133 The Boomers hate me. They'll never follow my lead. Anger 50 {irritated - the solution is obvious} Then you'll have to be extraordinarily persuasive. Or kill them - their leaders, at least. 417
Anger 50 Get to it, will you? You're wasting my time. 418
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic134 The White Glove Society won't listen to me - I've caused them too much trouble. Anger 50 So what you're telling me is, you're useless. You have no ability to influence events, so I'm forced to work around your incompetence. 419
Anger 50 Try to do better with your next assignment... 420
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic135 I killed the Omertas who were scheming to attack the Strip. Anger 50 Months spent feeding the Omertas bribes, nursing their betrayal - all for nothing. Any other crimes? 421
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic137 I may have disrupted plans to recruit the Great Khans to your cause. Anger 50 Weeks of effort to convince those miserable Khans to join the Legion - ruined. Any other crimes? 422
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic138 The Legionaries at Nelson attacked me, so I had to fight back... Anger 50 And so you wiped out the garrison I placed at Nelson? That strategically vital garrison? {beat} What else? 423
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic139 I defused the bomb on the monorail. Anger 50 Do you have any idea how much effort it took to place a mole at Camp McCarran? What else have you done? 424
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic140 I've committed no other crimes. Anger 50 Understand this. From this moment forward, any other crimes will be punished by death. No exceptions. 425
Anger 50 I will have you hacked into pieces by my Praetorians - for my amusement. Understand? 426
Neutral 50 Now getting back to business... 427
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic141 I apologize for my failure, mighty Caesar. It will not happen again. Anger 50 That's right. Under normal circumstances, the reason it wouldn't happen again is that you'd be crucified - or worse. 428
Disgust 50 Only in light of the extraordinary service you've rendered unto me am I going to overlook this failure. 429
Anger 50 Bear in mind how much you have to make up for, how much you have to prove yourself in your next task... 430
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic142 That's enough questions for now. Surprise 50 What else, then? 431
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic143 I won't fight for the Legion. Anger 50 What did you just say? 432
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic146 Just let me deal with Benny and I'll be on my way. Anger 50 Benny is my prisoner. You don't "deal with him" unless you've dealt with me. 433
Anger 50 {I can read your mind} Don't worry, you'll get the Platinum Chip he was carrying. And then you'll use it like I tell you to. 434
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic147 I should be going. Anger 50 {putting player in his/her place} You should be listening, that's what you should be doing. 435
I should be going. Anger 50 {keeping player in his/her place} That's right, you should be going - because you have work to do. 436
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic150 Just give me back the Platinum Chip and I'll be on my way. Anger 50 Oh, I'll give you the Platinum Chip. And then you'll use it exactly like I tell you to. 437
VDialogueCaesarFortCaesarTopic152 I'll see what I can find out. Anger 50 Do that. And try not to take too long. 438
