Dawn Omega found herself abducted by aliens on a spaceship in her latest Fallout 3 adventure. After fleeing the scene of a battle between a Protectron, Sentry bot, and deathclaw, Dawn found a downed...UFO? And a green...alien? Or is it just a ghoul? As she stepped closer for a better look, she got pulled up by some sort of beam and passed out. She woke up inside a futuristic-looking cell with some slaver chick. They staged a fight, a fight in which the slaver did not pull her punches, and jumped their green alien captors.
Dawn rescued an annoying little girl from another holding cell. After a major shoot-out, Dawn thawed out some cryogenically frozen humans from times past. Dawn trusted a man named Paulson to hold his own against al…Read more >
The Capital Wasteland Battle Royale - anybody from Fallout 3 is allowed to participate. Who wins?

In the quest called Gallows Humor, the player has to merely talk to two NPCs and gets to collect 1000 caps. What the hell?
When I started my current playthrough of Fallout 3 [GOTY!!], I went in saying, in my head, that I wanted a good female with a diplomatic approach. Enter Dawn Omega. In the Vault and in my first days in Megaton, that's how I played. Of course, there is no diplomacy to be had with MANY NPCs/Enemies in the Capital Wasteland [and surrounding areas].
Dawn chose two-handed small gun weaponry for most hostile engagements. Dawn would only kill in self-defense. Early on, ammo is a bit scarce, so she also decided to focus on highly efficient headshots.
It wasn't long before Dawn fell in love with the scoped magnum. Ammo was scarce and expensive, so I tried making sure 6 bullets meant 6 dead bodies. She noticed crouching helped accuracy, especia…Read more >
