X: Ugh... damn, those soldiers know how to punch one down better than shooting… where are we?
Rex: Alcatr... er, wait, no, we are in a prison of the NCR.
X: Pfeh! I only got the job as a sports' host and now a talking cyberdog has insulted a general that threw us in jail. Only got this tape recorder here. And why is its the video feed broken?
Rex: Why, it is just business. And I was programmed to show folks some good time.
X: And how do we get back alive? After all, we have to get back, else Ashur will rip out the contracts... and our limbs.
Silus: I wouldn't worry too much. Profligates do not know how to issue a good punishment. As for you two, a dog and an assistant. Perfect, I got everything I need.
Rex: Oh, that is Silus, a commander of Caesar's Legion. Sure wish to know what is he doing here.
Silus: It is not the time for questions, for it is time to make the final move. Dog, dig in a hole, here.
X: What do you have in mind, Mr. Silus?
Silus: The *former* resident of this cell smuggled in some dynamite, but let's say the guards had to carry him after I handled his plan issues. Now, let's stand there and wait. 3, 2, 1... *explosion blast*
X: Whoa, how did you...?
Silus: Me and some of my subordinates worked on weeks hiding the satchel charges, bottlecap mines and time bombs. The profligates are blind not to notice our activites. Now, let's go!
Rex: The guards are preparing rifles... and look, the main gates are shut!
Silus: Do not show weakness in front of a Caesar's centurion, worm! Besides, take a closer look; that is our guard spy, who is opening the gates. You must always infiltrate the enemy, remember that.
X: This seems to be too easy for us... bah, let's think later and run!
Rex: *several moments later, in desert* I think we lost them. And you lost the recorder on the way. Let me just do this to repair it...
Ooh, we just got linked in the Hole's network, the video feed is on! Ah yes, there is no guest at the Hole! So, one question, Mr. Silus, if a boxer were to face a man wanting to revive the ideals of the Old World, who would win in that battle?
Relying on the Old World's technology and ideals will just make the man more vulnerable. The boxer knows true strength comes from within, which is why our soldiers are training. Now, for the two of you, you are coming with me. After all, I freed you, now it is time to return the favor.
Certainly not. *bites Silus' leg and releases electricity* That's for saying false statements, dumb boxers cannot defeat men with powerful ideas!
You seem pretty certain of yourself... again. And what's with the electricity?
Oh, I can release all my energy to electrocute people. However, that also means I have no energy to move. So you have to carry me around.
Great. Out of all luck... well, let's hurry, soldiers are coming and will imprison Silus once more. Who knows, someone might interrogate him properly.
