Lets' talk this over... gun to gun
Thank god you're here! Some crazy guy has Sinthia held hostage. He's threatening to kill her! You've got to help.”— Marcelles
If the Vault Dweller spends a night in the Crash House Hotel in Junktown, they will wake up to find the hooker Sinthia held hostage by a random raider in the room adjacent to theirs. Marcelles will beg the Vault Dweller to defuse the situation.
There are three ways to solve this quest:
As soon as the raider can see the Vault Dweller, he will enter dialogue. When talking with the raider, the Vault Dweller must assure him that no one is going to hurt him in order to have him believe that the Vault Dweller is his friend, and not an enemy. If the Vault Dweller's Speech skill is high enough, he/she can convince the raider to leave without a fight. If it is not high enough, they may need to pay either 100 or 200 caps, depending on what dialogue options are chosen.
Another option is to talk with the crazed raider in a calming manner. If he says he needs to think about it, the Vault Dweller should walk in on him while he is pondering. He will attack the Vault Dweller instead of Sinthia, allowing the him to kill the bad guy and save the prostitute.
Again, like the option above, the Vault Dweller should talk to the raider in a calming manner. When the raider says he needs to think about it, the Vault Dweller should activate the Sneak skill. If it is high enough, Both the Vault Dweller and Sinthia will be able to sneak behind the raider without him reacting. Shooting him will knock him unconscious. At first, Sinthia will think the raider is dead, but the game confirms he is not.
- Sinthia won't sell her services to the Vault Dweller if the raider is killed. If a companion happens to kill him, the Vault Dweller will still be able to do "business" with her.
- If the Vault Dweller doesn't save her, she suffers a gruesome death, causing resentment among the rest of the girls.
- If the Vault Dweller does save her, her "services" will be available (at a low rate of 40 caps, but for only 10 minutes).
