Topics Edit

DaringArgyleDeadTopic I found Argyle. I'm afraid he's dead. Neutral 50 Dead? Argyle? You... you’re sure? My God. I always thought he’d outlive me, by at least 100 years. Poor bastard. 1
Neutral 50 But thank you! Thank you for telling me. At least now I know. At least now the poor guy can catch a breather. 2
Neutral 50 I’d like to return your kindness. Here, take this key. It unlocks my safe. Lots of stuff in there I'll never use again. My adventuring days are over. 3
DaringArgyleTopic Tell me about Argyle. Neutral 50 Argyle was my manservant! Ah, but that’s really just a fancy word for "the guy who saves my sorry skin on a regular occasion." 4
Neutral 50 He was a Ghoul, you see. Been around since before the war. We met when I stole his girlfriend, back in ’41. We’d been best friends ever since. 5
Neutral 50 We got separated, a long time ago, and never reunited. If you find Argyle out there, somewhere, you be sure and tell me! Okay? 6
DaringGNRTopic You mentioned something about GNR? Neutral 50 Haven’t you ever heard the radio play? The Adventures of Herbert "Daring" Dashwood? That guy at the radio station put it together a few years ago. 7
Neutral 50 He did it in the style of those shows they had before the war. Came out pretty well. And it’s all true! Rockopolis, Miss Chase... All of it. 8
Neutral 50 Of course, they do portray me as a bit of a chump. Argyle may have saved my hide more than once, but I had my moments. Ah, those were the days... 9
GREETING GREETING Happy 100 Herbert Dashwood. Damn glad to meet you! Call me Daring. Everyone else does. 10
GREETING Surprise 50 Why are you doing this? {in the middle of an attack against his town} 11
GREETING Surprise 50 Don't just stand their child! Take up the fight! {in the middle of an attack against his town} 12
GREETING Happy 100 You're a lot tougher than you look, kid. {jovial} 13
GREETING Happy 100 Glad to see you were able to convince these people to open their minds a little. Those Ghouls will liven things up around here for a long time! {jovial} 14
GREETING Happy 100 Hello fellow adventurer! {jovial} 15
GREETING Happy 100 Get into any adventures recently? {excited to relieve his youth vicariously} 16
GREETING Happy 100 You remind me of myself... back when I was a young adventurer. {excited to relieve his youth vicariously} 17
MS08SympathizerClue1 I'm interested in this android from the Commonwealth. Neutral 50 We don't do that anymore. Well, not until the heat dies down. For now, the Railroad is shut down. 18
Neutral 50 Used to help them escape from the Commonwealth. Find them places to lay low. The last one was someone real important. They are still looking for him. 19
MS08SympathizerClue2 I know you know something about this android from the Commonwealth. Neutral 50 I heard they found him a place to hide. It's not easy. The Commonwealth always sends someone looking. Someone ruthless and determined. {hushed and conspiratorial} 20
Fear 10 They were looking for a surgeon and a computer wiz. But that's old news. {hushed and conspiratorial} 21
Fear 50 Lay low for a while. We've had to temporarily shut down the railroad. {hushed and conspiratorial} 22
Are you part of the Railroad? What do you know about this android?
I know you're part of the Railroad. What do you know about the android? Fear 75 Shhh! Not so loud! Whoever brought you in should have told you to be more discreet! {afraid someone might overhear} 23
Neutral 50 They were looking for a tech-wizard awhile back. Someone who could give our friend a new set of memories. You know wipe them clear and replace them. {hushed and conspiratorial} 24
Fear 50 Not sure how that'd be accomplished. If you know anything, send word by the regular channels. Now go before someone overhears us! {hushed and conspiratorial} 25
Do you know where this android had his face or memory replaced?
I know you know where this android received his operations. Talk. Surprise 50 He was delivered to Pinkerton at Rivet City a long while back. It's been a complete success. No one will recognize that robot now. {hushed and conspiratorial} 26
Fear 10 We can all breathe easier, but we've shut down the Railroad until we are sure this has all blown over. Agents of the Commonwealth are still looking. {hushed and conspiratorial} 27
MS12Basement Do you know anything about the basement and emergency tunnels? Surprise 100 Aha! So you've been exploring the tower! Well done! Let's just say that Gustavo's not the only one with a key for the generator room! {jovial gloating about his exploits} 28
I don't want to play games... Can I please just borrow the key? Sad 10 Bah! I thought you were more interesting than that. Fine. But you better not get caught with that! {disappointed in his protege} 29
Are you suggesting what I think you're suggesting? Surprise 50 Well, it does get a trifle bit boring around here, and to spice things up I like to do a little... exploring. {mischievous glee "exploring" means breaking and entering and snooping around} 30
Happy 50 Oh, I always put everything back! Well, almost everything. I occasionally keep a memento... like Gustavo's key to the generator room. {mischievous glee} 31
Happy 100 Have you noticed how he turns a delightful shade of purple when he's angry? {mischievous glee} 32
Surprise 50 Well, kid. There're two keys floating around. Which one do you think you can nab without getting caught? Good luck! {mischievous} 33
MS12BasementKey2 You want Gustavo to catch you with that? Better let me hold onto it, old man. Surprise 100 That's awfully brash of you! You think you got what it takes? {mischievous glee} 34
Happy 75 The trick to "exploring" is to make sure no one knows you've done it. My neighbors, for instance, have no idea that I know so much about them! {mischievous glee} 35
Surprise 50 I'll make you a deal kid. You can borrow my key, IF you can find it without letting me see you take it. Good luck! {mischievous} 36
MS12FinResidents What's it like living at Tenpenny Tower? Happy 100 Now everyone's calmed down and back to their old selves. Not that I cared much for them to begin with, but they've stopped all the Ghoul foolishness. {jovial} 37
Surprise 100 They really are quite ignorant here. But where else could I retire and fit all my trophies? {jovial} 38
What's it like living at Tenpenny Tower? Happy 100 I'm surprised by my fellow tenants. I used to think they were all closed minded idiots. Turns out they aren't so bad after all. {jovial} 39
MS12Greeting1 "Daring?" Bet you had to earn that nickname, huh? Neutral 50 Maybe you’ve heard the GNR radio play? The Adventures of Herbert "Daring" Dashwood? That’s about me, you know. Based on my, um... earlier days. {reliving his glory days of youth} 40
Surprise 100 I even had a Ghoul manservant. Let me ask you you ever met a Ghoul before? { } 41
MS12Greeting2 Shouldn't you be napping or something? Surprise 100 Got a fire up your butt, eh? Better put that to good use. Go out exploring. Don't hang around these fools. You'll only want to blow your brains out. 42
Happy 50 Ah, to be young again. You know the G.N.R. radio play? The Adventures of Herbert ‘Daring’ Dashwood? That’s about me. Based on my... early days. {jovial} 43
Surprise 75 I had myself a Ghoul manservant and everything. So... you ever met a Ghoul before? { } 44
MS12Greeting3 <Say nothing.> Neutral 50 Not very lively are you? Perhaps you're just bored. You should go on an adventure. Nothing like a little bit of the unknown to motivate a person. {filling a void in conversation with a non-talkative person} 45
Neutral 50 That's what I did. In my... younger years. You know the G.N.R. radio play? The Adventures of Herbert ‘Daring’ Dashwood? That’s about me. 46
Surprise 100 Hell, I even had me a Ghoul manservant. Let me ask you you ever met a Ghoul before? { } 47
MS12IntroToGhoul1 Sure, I know lots of Ghouls. Killed my share, too. Surprise 50 Well. Then you know that some Ghouls aren't feral, and can be reasoned with. {doubting the player actually knows this} 48
Sad 100 Those Ghouls that keep trying to get into Tenpenny. They need to stop, before someone gets hurt. I think they live in the nearby Metro tunnels... {suggesting to the player what should be done} 49
MS12IntroToGhoul2 Only one thing I like less than Ghouls: old geezers giving me orders. Anger 75 If you weren't a child, I'd show you what this old man can do! {threatening} 50
MS12IntroToGhoul3 Sure, I've met some Ghouls. They're just people, trying to get by. Surprise 100 Ah... you've already learned some wisdom in your youth. Congratulations! {surprised and pleased} 51
MS12ResidentsBranch What's it like living at Tenpenny Tower? Happy 50 Well, until recently the only danger you ever faced in this fine establishment, was bumping into all the bloated egos floating around. {jovial} 52
Happy 75 But now there's a group of Ghouls nearby. I've tried explaining that they don't ALL want to eat you - though SOME do, of course. {jovial} 53
Surprise 50 Problem is, it's hard to tell which is which. Chief Gustavo has initiated a shoot first and ask later policy. If they're smart, they'll stay away. {jovial} 54
About these Ghouls...
I bet you know a thing or two about those Ghouls... Happy 50 Some Ghouls moved into the nearby Metro tunnel. There's a bunch of the so-called Feral Ghouls in there, but a handful seem the sociable type. {jovial adventurer} 55
Sad 50 I've tried explaining to my fellow tenants that not all Ghouls are monsters. But they don't seem to care. {sympathetic to the Ghouls} 56
Fear 20 The intelligent ones should stay away from our trigger happy protectors. If there're enough feral ones though, they could overwhelm security. {jovial, but with a hint of concern} 57
I can take care of this Ghoul situation, no problem. Happy 100 Aha! An adventurous soul like myself. If I wasn't retired, I might come with you myself. {jovial} 58
Better let the young folks handle things, old timer. Anger 100 You're lucky old men learn patience. But keep pushing your luck and I'll teach you a thing or two. {angry indignation} 59
Sure. Whatever you say. Disgust 5 Don't care? You might one day. {dismissing an arrogant youngster} 60
MS12ResidentsNeighbors How would you feel about having a few Ghoul neighbors? Surprise 100 Well, I wouldn't mind. But they'd better be civilized. The tenants here are real uppity and most wouldn't take kindly to Ghouls living here. {jovial} 61
How would you feel about having a few Ghoul neighbors? Surprise 75 I wouldn't mind. It would certainly liven things up around here, that's for sure! {jovial} 62
MS12ResidentsNeighborsBad It's wise to be afraid of Ghouls. Neutral 50 Yes. Many will chew off your arm if given the chance. It's true. But they aren't all bad. {jovial} 63
MS12ResidentsNeighborsGood So you wouldn't mind if some civilized Ghouls moved in? Happy 50 Like I said, it's fine by me. {jovial} 64
MS12ResidentsNeighborsGoodPetition Would you tell Mister Tenpenny that you wouldn't mind Ghoul neighbors? Happy 75 Of course! I wonder if they've ever been to Underworld. Now there's an interesting vacation destination! {(agreeing) jovial} 65
MS12ResidentsNeighborsNeutral Whatever. Disgust 50 Don't start conversations you aren't interested in finishing. {joival man getting annoyed} 66
SpeechChallengeFailure SpeechChallengeFailure Surprise 25 You'd like to know, wouldn't you? Well, if you knew enough to be trusted, you wouldn't go around asking questions like that. Sorry, kid. {grandfatherly scolding} 67

Conversation Edit

DialogueTenpennyConv00 DialogueTenpennyConv00 Happy 75 Haha! Nothing you can pin on me, Chief! But shouldn't you be out killing things in the Wasteland instead of pestering old harmless fogies like me? {jovial repartee with the security chief who suspects him of causing trouble} 68
DialogueTenpennyConv00 Happy 50 My dear boy. You've got all the adventure you need, right here in these four walls. For starters, you can figure out how to make your wife happy. {amused, but telling him something important} 69
DialogueTenpennyConv00 Happy 50 It's a radio play, not a documentary. {amused} 70

DialogueTenpennyConv01 Happy 50 Hawthorne. Go easy on those remaining brain cells, alright? {teasing a friend but trying to make a point} 74
DialogueTenpennyConv01 Surprise 15 You should count yourself very lucky. I do. Most people die a horrible death out there in the Wastes. Excitement and danger often go hand in hand. {being sincere} 75
DialogueTenpennyConv01 Sad 50 I've had too kill far to many men... listen, Mrs. Cheng... have you tried talking to your husband about things? I think he really cares about you. {changing the subject to what the other person is really wanting to talk about.} 76
DialogueTenpennyConv02 DialogueTenpennyConv02 Happy 100 I once killed a Yao Guai with my bare hands! Almost lost an arm. But I got the bastard in the end. Ah... Those were the days. {reminiscing about the good ol' days} 77
DialogueTenpennyConv02 Happy 100 Hehe. I'm sorry to hear that, Irving. Maybe I should take a look at your computer sometime. Heheh. {(trying not to laugh, as he is the one who keeps sabotaging his friends computer as a practical joke)} 78

DialogueTenpennyConv02 Surprise 50 We'll just have to see about that! You watch out! I can be a very stealthy hunter! {playful banter with his mistress} 81
DialogueTenpennyConv02 Sad 50 Some men just don't have the hunting instinct, dear. You should try talking to him about your needs. {giving advice to a friend who wants her husband to pursue her more} 82
