# node 1
{103} {mcs1a} {Well, what the hell. I haven’t seen one of those outfits for a long, long time. Takes me back.}
{104} {mcs1b} {What do you want, human?}
{105} {mcs1c} {Something else you wanted?}
{106}(){Uggie.}
{107}(){Who are you?}
{108}(){What’s the story with this place?}
{109}(){Why aren’t you mutants attacking me?}
{110}(){What’s the news?}
{111}(){I have something I wanted to tell you.}
{112}(){You wanna travel with me?}
{113}(){Bye.}
{114} {mcs3} {Yeah, I’m a ugly mutant. I also run this place. You got a problem with that?}
{115}(){Uh!}
{116}(){Nuh.}
{117} {mcs4} {You wanna fight me?}
{118}(){Uh!}
{119}(){Nuh.}
{120} {mcs5} {Take your best shot, human.}
{121} {mcs6a} {Good.}
{122} {mcs6b} {Keep your nose clean and you won’t get into trouble.}
{123}(){Uh?}
{124} {mcs7} {I’m Marcus. Helped build the place. Now I’m sheriff.}
{125}(){You helped build this place? That must have been a long time ago…}
{126}(){Bullshit. How could you have been around that long?}
{127}(){Bye.}
{128} {mcs8} {Long story. Want it short or the whole thing?}
{129}(){Give me the short version.}
{130}(){Hell, I’m not too busy. Let’s hear it all.}
{131}(){Neither. I have more questions.}
{132}(){Neither. See ya.}
{133} {mcs9} {Right. Me and a human named Jacob built this place around that old bank about 60 years ago. Anyone’s welcome here, long as they keep the peace.}
{134}(){Great. I have more questions.}
{135}(){Fair enough. Bye.}
{136} {mcs10} {Right...After the Master and the vats were destroyed, I wandered a bit. No place to go. One day got attacked by this fool wearin’ power armor.}
{137}(){Really?}
{138} {mcs11} {That was Jacob, from the Brotherhood of Steel. He’d sworn some oath to destroy muties. We tussled for a while – probably a day or two. After a while, we just started laughing. What was the point?}
{139}(){Then what?}
{140} {mcs12} {We became friends. Headed off together. Then other people started following us. Guess they figured if they weren’t safe with a mutie and a Steel Knight, safe just wasn’t going to happen. }
{141}(){So you set up here. Why?}
{142} {mcs13} {Uranium mine. I knew there was one around from old maps. Now anybody’s welcome here – ‘long as they act right. Others might not think much of us, but nobody’s more free than we are. There ya go.}
{143}(){Wait… you were friends with a guy from the Brotherhood?}
{144}(){What, you’re not killing humans anymore?}
{145}(){Thanks. There I go. Bye.}
{146} {mcs14} {Oh, what sinkhole are you from? Muties and normals made peace a long time ago.}
{147}(){I’m from a village founded by the original Vault Dweller.}
{148}(){From a village to the north west.}
{149}(){Oh. My mistake. Well, thanks. Bye.}
{150} {mcs15a} {What’s news… what’s news…}
{151} {mcs15b} {Well, gettin’ kind of worried about one of our caravan guys. Chad. He might be skimming. You up to checking him out for me?}
{152}(){What’s in it for me?}
{153}(){Sure. I’ll do it.}
{154}(){I’m a little busy.}
{155}(){You have anything else?}
{156} {mcs16} {My undying gratitude. Right?}
{157}(){Good enough for me.}
{158}(){No good. I want something.}
{159}(){How ‘bout more questions while I think it over.}
{160}(){Let me think about it. Bye.}
{161} {mcs17} {That ain’t good enough for you? Then get out.}
{162}(){Bye.}
{163} {mcs18} {Got a little trouble with the mine. If you’re interested in helping fix it, go talk to Zaius, the mine foreman.}
{164}(){Where can I find him?}
{165}(){You got anything else?}
{166}(){I have more questions.}
{167}(){Maybe later. Bye.}
{168} {mcs19} {Usually at the mine. Sometimes the saloon.}
{169}(){Got anything else?}
{170}(){I have more questions.}
{171}(){Bye.}
{172} {mcs20} {Somebody busted two lunatics out of the jail in the Bank. Find ‘em. Tell me and I’ll stuff ‘em back in.}
{173}(){Got anything else?}
{174}(){I have more questions.}
{175}(){Bye.}
{176} {mcs21} {What exactly do you want? Okay. We’ve got some folks missing. No idea what’s happened. Find ‘em, get $500.}
{177}(){I’ll do it for free.}
{178}(){$500? Sounds good.}
{179}(){I don’t have time.}
{180}(){I have more questions.}
{181}(){Bye.}
{182} {mcs22} {Great. Let me know when you’ve found something, right?}
{183}(){Sure. I have more questions.}
{184}(){Will do. Bye.}
{185} {mcs23} {Yeah? What?}
{186}(){You wanted me to find those missing people. I’ve found some tunnels below the city. They might be there.}
{187}(){I’ve found those missing people. They’re in tunnels beneath the city.}
{188}(){Those two escaped convicts? They’re in cahoots with Jacob and Aileen. They're hiding out around Jacob's drugstore.}
{189}(){Jacob and Aileen asked me to break two people out of jail. I think they’ve got a plan how to do it.}
{190}(){Jacob and Aileen want me to blow up the mine. Thought you might want to know.}
{191}(){A scientist from NCR wants to try an experimental drug that’ll wipe out mutants. Be careful of what you eat and drink.}
{192}(){Chad took $6000 from the rep in Gecko. The rep was complaining about the price… said it’d been going up.}
{193}(){Chad kept about $1000 from the last uranium shipment for himself. He's planning on bailing outta town.}
{194}(){Nothing. Forget it.}
{195} {mcs24} {Tunnels under the city? Guess it’s not that surprising with the mines around. You’ll keep looking around for those folks, right? }
{196}(){Right.}
{197} {mcs25a} {They’re dead? Damn… I’ll tell the families myself. }
{198} {mcs25b} {Here’s your reward. $500. Thanks for your time.}
{199} {mcs25c} {Oh, hey, I know you said you’d do this for free, but take this as our thanks.}
{200}(){Sure.}
{201} {mcs26} {Right. Me and my deputies will take it from here...And, thanks. I don’t forget things like this.}
{202}(){No prob. Bye.}
{203} {mcs27} {What is it people got against mutants? We'll be on the lookout. Thanks. The town owes you. And I never forget things like this.}
{204}(){My pleasure. Bye.}
{205} {mcs28} {Keep your eye on him, will you? I want to catch him red-handed.}
{206}(){No problem.}
{207} {mcs29} {Well, in that case, we’d better be sure to stop him. Want to come along?}
{208}(){Sure.}
{209}(){No, thanks.}
{210} {mcs30} {You want me to come along with you? Ah, what the hell, I’m too old to settle down. We goin’ now?}
{211}(){Yes.}
{212}(){No, not right now.}
{213} {mcs31} {Ah, there’s too much going on right now. When things calm down, then I just might.}
{214}(){Sure. I got more questions.}
{215}(){Bye.}
{216} {mcs32} {Damn right. Best friend I ever had.}
{217}(){Yeah, right, you would’ve dipped him just like everyone else.}
{218}(){Bye.}
{219} {mcs33} {Hell, yes, I would've. What a great mutant he would’ve been.}
{220}(){I don't think he'd be happy to hear you say that.}
{221}(){Bye.}
{222} {mcs34} {(laughs) We had this argument all the time. (sigh) I miss that hard-head.}
{223}(){What about the Master’s hatred for humans?}
{224}(){I still think it’s a rotten fate.}
{225}(){Bye.}
{226} {mcs35} {You’re talking a long time ago. The world’s moved on. You want to hear ancient history?}
{227}(){Definitely.}
{228}(){Not right now. I’d like to ask some other questions, though.}
{229}(){Not right now. I’ll talk to you later.}
{230} {mcs36} {Right. Well, never really HATED humans. We just had a better way. These new governments, they think they've got all the answers. Blah, blah. Been there, seen that, got the scars.}
{231}(){So what was the better way?}
{232} {mcs37} {The Master wanted to elevate everyone to his level, so we wouldn’t fight each other anymore. He was convinced we wouldn’t do it by ourselves – couldn’t. We had to be forced to evolve.}
{233}(){Do you agree?}
{234} {mcs38} {While Jacob was alive, I thought the Master was wrong. But it seems that while some men can heed the call and rise above it all, most just run away.}
{235}(){So you think the Master was right?}
{236} {mcs38a} {Jacob heard the call and embraced it. So did the Vault Dweller. But no matter how many rise above, the masses will always destroy them, right?}
{237}(){Maybe.}
{238} {mcs39} {The Master just wanted everyone to see clearly. The Vault Dweller ended that dream.}
{239}(){Sounds like you admired and hated the Vault Dweller at the same time.}
{240}(){You were a human. How can you justify what the Master did to you?}
{241}(){So you think the Master’s plan was right?}
{242}(){I’m descended from the original Vault Dweller, you know.}
{243} {mcs40} {You’re right. If all humans fought for what they believed in like that, we wouldn’t have needed the Master’s plan in the first place.}
{244}(){The Master wanted to enslave humanity!}
{245}(){Interesting spin. I gotta go.}
{246} {mcs41} {Don't forget, I knew the folks involved. They were the best humanity had to offer. Your people are going to tell the story a different way, right?}
{247}(){Err… maybe. Umm, I have more questions.}
{248}(){Wrong!}
{249} {mcs42} {The "original Vault Dweller"? You mean the one who killed the Master and destroyed the vats?}
{250}(){Ummm… yes.}
{251}(){Damn right. Gonna do something about it, mutie?}
{252}(){Nooo… this is someone else. I don’t know what you’re talking about.}
{253} {mcs43} {Not a problem. Like I said, that was a long time ago.}
{254}(){I’m not afraid of you.}
{255}(){Why did you hate humans back then?}
{256} {mcs44} {No reason to be, unless you cross me or someone in my town. Be civilized, that’s all I ask.}
{257}(){I’ll keep it in mind. I have more questions.}
{258}(){I’ll keep it in mind. Bye.}
{259} {mcs45} {Lemme make this clear: Nothing’s going to happen here unless you start it. Just stay civilized while you’re in my town.}
{260}(){Yeah, right. I have more questions.}
{261}(){Yeah, right. Bye.}
{262} {mcs46} {My memories of being a human aren't as clear as they once were, but I remember pettiness, hatred, jealousy... I prefer being a mutant.}
{263}(){So you think the Master’s plan was right?}
{264}(){Huh. You’re a lot uglier this way. Bye.}
{265}(){Then you’re fine. Bye.}
{266} {mcs47} {It was flawed. We should have only taken the best. Look around. Most mutants didn't have the mind or will to withstand the strain. (sigh) If only we had chosen better…}
{267}(){So you would have dipped Jacob? Or the Vault Dweller?}
{268}(){Yeah, that’s a tragedy. Well, see ya later!}
{269} {mcs48} {You ever get back there, tell them the war’s over. It's been over a long time.}
{270}(){Ummm. Okay. I have more questions.}
{271}(){Sure thing. Bye.}
{272} {mcs49alt} {Thanks for your help. Could’ve been trouble. We took their weapons cache and disabled their bombs.}
{273}(){Great! I have some questions...}
