FSRotfaceDontGiveCap Sorry, maybe another time. Neutral 50 I understand. Well, have a good day. 1
FSRotfaceGiveCap Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 The first thing you should know is that Freeside is run by a pack of yahoos that call themselves the Kings. 2
Neutral 50 Their leader, who oddly enough calls himself the King, currently has his hands full trying to prevent an all-out riot in Freeside. 3
Neutral 50 That's two tips, but what the hell. You're a new customer so the extra one's on me. Wanna hear another? 4
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Northwest of the big Freeside sign is a casino called the Atomic Wrangler. 5
Neutral 50 It's not as fancy as the ones on the Strip, but there's still plenty of excitement to be found there. 6
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 At the northwest end of Fremont Street you'll find the Silver Rush. It's run by a rather scary family called the Van Graffs. 7
Neutral 50 Trust me, these are {stressed} not people you want to mess with. But if lasers and such are your thing, the goods they sell are second to none. 8
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 People in Freeside generally fall into one of two categories. Those who've been here all their lives call themselves Locals. 9
Neutral 50 When people from the NCR and other places started pouring in, the Locals began referring to them as Squatters, and the name stuck. 10
Neutral 50 The Locals blame the Squatters for the scarcity of resources in Freeside, and the Squatters blame any act of violence against them on the Locals. 11
Neutral 50 They're both right to some extent, and violent outbreaks between the two are all too common these days. 12
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 If you've been around the Kings, you may have met one of them named Pacer. He's always stomping around trying show off his authority. 13
Neutral 50 Being new, you weren't around when it happened, but a few months ago Pacer pissed off the Van Graff family big time. 14
Neutral 50 No one knows what went down, but word is the Van Graffs still want him dead. 15
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Drugs are everywhere in Freeside, and even people you might not expect have become addicts. 16
Neutral 50 Jacob Hoff, for instance. That man was a brilliant chemist before he picked up the habit. Now, just another junkie. 17
Neutral 50 That King Pacer's a fan of Jet, too, though I heard one of the Followers talking about it being dangerous for him. Something about his heart. 18
Neutral 50 Do yourself a favor, and stay away from that stuff, okay? 19
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 In the area between the north and east gates is the Old Mormon Fort, where the Followers of the Apocalypse have set themselves up. 20
Neutral 50 The Followers aren't a bad bunch, and provide healing and supplies to the people of Freeside as they can. 21
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 I've heard the Garrets over at the Atomic Wrangler are having a hard time collecting some money owed to them. 22
Neutral 50 An enterprising person like yourself might be able to make some caps helping them with their little problem. 23
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Caught a rumor the other day that some of the clientele over at the Wrangler have been making some rather strange requests. 24
Neutral 50 Stuff like weirdos wanting the, ahem, services of ghouls and such. I almost have half a mind to volunteer myself, sexy beast that I am. 25
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Have you tried going to the Strip, only to be stopped by those big metal murder machines? Happens every day around here. 26
Neutral 50 But if you know the right people, you can get through the gate without being a rich man. 27
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 I probably don't have to tell you that Freeside's dangerous, but you might want to think twice about hiring one of those guards at the gates. 28
Neutral 50 They're not all saints, is all I'm saying. 29
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Have you been to Mick & Ralph's yet? They run a store just down the street, and sell some things you might not expect. 30
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 There's a guy out on the main drag who sells second hand adventuring gear. He's got an okay selection, but where does it come from? 31
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 He might not look it, but Ralph from Mick & Ralph's is no slouch with a keyboard. I've heard he's helped reprogram several robots in his time. 32
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Saw a strange thing the other day. The King took that robo-dog of his over to the Old Mormon Fort. 33
Neutral 50 Weird thing was that the dog was flipping out, and had to be restrained by a few of the King's men. Hope he doesn't get loose. 34
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Things have generally been bad here for the Squatters, the people who came here hoping for a better life and just got stuck. 35
Neutral 50 But lately the mood has changed. The Squatters seem to be a bit more optimistic. I wonder what happened? 36
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Mention the NCR and people around here get a little on edge. There's talk that they're going to take over all of New Vegas. 37
Neutral 50 It doesn't help that they've got military camps all over the place, and more troops pour into the area daily. 38
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 There's a rumor that a huge army is camped to the east, massing to attack the NCR. Like that'd ever happen. 39
Neutral 50 Who in the world could stand up to the NCR and win? 40
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 While everyone knows Mr. House runs New Vegas, no one knows the first thing about him. 41
Neutral 50 He just sort of showed up a few years back, and everything you see around you is the result. Just who in the hell is he? 42
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 The Strip is run by the Three Families, who owe their allegiance to Mr. House. 43
Neutral 50 When he first showed up, he gave the local tribes the choice of working with him or getting the hell out of his way. 44
Neutral 50 Given how things turned out, I know which way I'd have gone, but hindsight's twenty-twenty, right? 45
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 The Omertas, one of Mr. House's Three Families, run a casino called Gomorrah on the Strip. 46
Neutral 50 If you thought the Wrangler was something, you owe it to yourself to go there. 47
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 The Chairmen run a casino on the Strip called the Tops. It's a pretty classy place, by all reports. 48
Neutral 50 I haven't been there myself, but I hear security there is kinda tight. Don't expect to bring your weapons in there. 49
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 There was a rumor a while back that the White Glove Society was really an all-ghoul gang, which is why they wear those weird masks of theirs. 50
Neutral 50 What do you think, would I look good in a mask? Maybe I'd make more caps... 51
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 A traveler that passed through here not long ago told everyone he met that there's some kind of plant paradise to the west where food is abundant. 52
Neutral 50 All the people foolish enough to listen to him and head out that way never came back. 53
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Ever hear of the Gun Runners? They sell just about every kind of firearm you can imagine, and some you probably couldn't. 54
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 I've heard people passing through mention some kind of underground fights pitting creatures of the waste against one another for sport. 55
Neutral 50 And when I say "underground," that's their word I'm using, not my own. 56
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 East of Freeside there's an old air force base, judging by the road signs. 57
Neutral 50 No one knows for sure what's in there, though, on account of anyone approaching the place getting violently blown up. 58
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 I heard something about a town south of here being attacked, but details are sketchy. All I know is there haven't been any refugees showing up here. 59
Neutral 50 Which means either the attack wasn't too bad, or it was very, very bad. 60
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 Traders have been griping for a while now about the 15 being too dangerous to travel. I'd steer clear of it unless you're armed to the teeth. 61
Sure, here you go. Neutral 50 The NCR used to run a prison to the southwest, but something happened a little while back, and now all you'll get is hard looks if you ask about it. 62
FSRotfaceSoliciting Are you soliciting me? Neutral 50 Ha ha ha, oh that's rich. You're not exactly my type, no offense. No, I meant I could give you a tip. Earn my money, so to speak. 63
FSRotfaceWhatKindofTip What kind of tip? Neutral 50 You look like you're new around here, so I'm sure I know all sorts of things you'd find useful. If not, well, it's only a cap. 64
Neutral 50 So what do you say? 65
GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 Hey buddy, spare a cap? I can make it worth your while. 66
GREETING Neutral 50 Hey pal, spare a cap? 67
GREETING Neutral 50 Ah, my favorite customer. Got a cap for me? 68
GREETING Neutral 50 Hey pal, you dig my new hat? I've been making some good money lately, and figured I'd treat myself. 69
GREETING Neutral 50 Hey, I thought about what you said before, and picked up this sweet piece. You were right, I feel much safer. 70
GREETING Neutral 50 Hey, I'm sorry about being so dismissive about your suggestion before. I thought a lot about what you said. 71
Neutral 50 There've been times when just a little bit of money from a stranger would have made a huge difference to me, so I get where you're coming from. 72
Neutral 50 Maybe I could make that kind of difference for someone else... ah, who am I kidding? 73
GREETING Neutral 50 Hey, I've been thinking a lot about what you said earlier, about saving up and leaving this dump. Do you really think it's possible? 74
GREETING Neutral 50 Look pal, I've been thinking. I know we got off to a bad start there, but let's put it behind us, okay? 75
GREETING Neutral 50 Hey pal, I made so much recently that I was able to afford this little number too. How do I look? 76
GREETING Neutral 50 You again. You want a tip, or you here to piss me off some more? 77
GREETING Neutral 50 Hey pal, you got the caps, I got the info. You do have the caps, right? 78
GREETING Neutral 50 Ah, my favorite customer returns. Want a tip? 79
GREETING Neutral 50 {Mugging sequence} Well, look who it is. I was just thinking about you. 80
Neutral 50 I recently came across a piece of info that you just have to hear, and since you're my best customer, it's on the house. Interested? 81
GREETING Neutral 50 {Mugging, after you turned him down the first time} Hey, I've still got that super-hot tip for you, and it's still free. What do you say? 82
GREETING Neutral 50 {Leaving} Hey pal, I've finally saved up enough caps to leave this dump, so no tips today. Or ever, I guess, ha ha. 83
Neutral 50 A lot of these caps came from you, so I wanted to say thanks before I shove off. Meeting you really changed my life. 84
GREETING Neutral 50 {Actual mugging} Okay, pal, we're going to do this quick and easy. I know you're loaded down with caps, judging by how much you've already given me. 85
Neutral 50 So I thought I'd save us both some time and just take all the caps you have. Hand them over. 86
GREETING Neutral 50 {Him working for the Followers} Oh hey, didn't think I'd see you here. I decided to stop scrounging for caps and start making a difference. 87
Neutral 50 The Followers have been really great. There's always something that needs to be done, and everyone here treats me really well. 88
Neutral 50 Sorry if you stopped by my old spot looking for info. I've been so busy lately that I haven't heard anything. 89
Neutral 50 Anyway, feel free to stay as long as you like. I've got to get back to work. 90
{Ask if he's heard about NCR soldiers in the area.}
You know anything about NCR soldiers prowling the area? Neutral 50 Could be. Could be. That kind of information doesn't come cheap, though. I'll need at least 150 caps for this one. 91
You still have some info on those NCR soldiers that have been about? Neutral 50 Could be. Could be. That kind of information doesn't come cheap, though. I'll need at least 150 caps for this one. 92
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic001 You drive a hard bargain. Here you go. Neutral 50 Much appreciated. The guys you're talking about have been spotted near the old train station in the northwest. 93
Neutral 50 There've been more and more Squatters heading that way each night, too. Word is, there's a password to get into the building. 94
{Barter check >= 25}
If you ever want me to buy another tip from you, that price'll come down. Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] You're a scoundrel. I'll let it go for 50, but no lower. 95
How about 15 caps since we both know you need the money? Neutral 50 [FAILED] How about 200 since you're such a smartass? 96
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic003 Done. Neutral 50 Much appreciated. The guys you're talking about have been spotted near the old train station in the northwest. 97
Neutral 50 There've been more and more Squatters from around here heading that way each night, too. Word is, there's a password to get into the building. 98
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic004 Sorry, too rich for me. Neutral 50 Then I can't help you with that, but I do have lots of other tips that come much, much cheaper... 99
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic005 Do you know the password? Neutral 50 It'll cost you 250 caps. 100
{Barter >= 50}
I've already paid good money for this information. A hundred more caps, no more. Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] Fine, fine. One hundred it is, but only because you're a good customer. 101
You want even more money? Are you insane? Neutral 50 [FAILED] I've got a business to run here, you know. The price is 250. 102
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic007 Fine. Neutral 50 Much appreciated. The guys you're talking about have been spotted near the old train station in the northwest. 103
Neutral 50 There've been more and more Squatters heading that way each night, too. Word is, there's a password to get into the building. 104
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic008 Here you go. Neutral 50 Wow, I might have to head down to the Wrangler tonight with all these caps weighing me down. 105
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic009 Thanks, I'll go check it out. Neutral 50 Good luck! 106
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic012 Whoa, now. Watch where you point that thing. It's dangerous. Neutral 50 Dangerous... I like that. Maybe it's time people starting being afraid of me rather than the other way around. 107
Whoa, now. Watch where you point that thing. It's dangerous. Neutral 50 Oh yeah, I wanted to tell you that I got some new info for you. Each tip's gonna cost 100 caps now though. 108
Neutral 50 Cause I got plans. Big plans. So what do you say? Want a tip? 109
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic013 Sorry, too rich for me. Neutral 50 Then I can't help you with that, but I do have lots of other tips that come much, much cheaper... 110
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic015 { Holder for Rotface extra lines } Neutral 50 Hey, listen, I'd love to sell you some more info, but you've tapped everything I've heard lately. 111
Neutral 50 Come back in a few days. I'll put my ear to the ground and hopefully have heard a few more things by then. 112
{ Holder for Rotface extra lines } Neutral 50 What do ya say, want another tip? 113
{ Holder for Rotface extra lines } Neutral 50 I got more where that came from. Want another? 114
{ Holder for Rotface extra lines } Neutral 50 That one was pretty good, right? How about another? 115
{ Holder for Rotface extra lines } Neutral 50 I've heard here and there that the word "Hope" has recently become quite popular with the Squatters. 116
Neutral 50 But that's all I've heard. If I knew more, I'd try to bilk you out of more caps. You interested in one of my other tips? 117
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic016 Yeah, it looks great. Neutral 50 Exactly what I was thinking. It's nice to have a little style, you know? 118
Yeah, it looks great. Neutral 50 But you're probably here for more of my special commodity, and luckily for you, I haven't been idle since last we spoke. 119
Neutral 50 However, all that hard work on my part means that the price has gone up. 100 a tip, now. You game? 120
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic017 It's not exactly what I would have bought for myself. Neutral 50 Oh yeah, what would you have gotten? 121
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic018 Good for you. No one should have to be afraid all the time. Neutral 50 Unfortunately, it comes with the territory around here. But being afraid sucks, no doubt about it. 122
Good for you. No one should have to be afraid all the time. Neutral 50 Oh, hey, I almost forgot to tell you I heard a few things you might be interested in. 123
Neutral 50 I'm kind of sorry about this, but I'm going to have to up my price to 100 caps per tip from now on. 124
Neutral 50 It's getting tougher to discover new things that might interest a traveler such as yourself. I'm sure you understand. So, you interested or what? 125
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic019 You look like an idiot. Neutral 50 Yeah, it does look pretty sweet, doesn't {it} i- hey, screw you! Who asked you anyway? The crap I put up with... 126
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic020 Probably a weapon, given how dangerous it is around here. Neutral 50 Yeah... that's a good idea... no sense making money and waiting for someone to just come and take it, right? 127
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic021 I'd have saved the money, so I could someday get the hell out of here. Neutral 50 Hmmm... you're a long-term thinker, man. I like that. You might be on to something there. 128
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic022 I'd have given the money away. Neutral 50 ...Really? Wow, it never occurred to me to actually give the money away. Do people really do things like that? {Long pause at the beginning as he's trying to decide if he heard the player right.} 129
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic023 Now you'll get some respect. You should give some hell to the people that used to push you around. Neutral 50 Yeah... yeah, that's a good idea. They'll learn that shouldn't have messed with me. Just wait till they get what's coming to them! 130
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic024 No, you could make a real difference. Neutral 50 You really think so, pal? I'll start looking into it. I bet I can help a lot of people around here. 131
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic025 Freeside's problems are too big for you to have much impact. Neutral 50 You're probably right. This place has been going downhill for a long time. Maybe I could start over somewhere else. 132
Neutral 50 Just think of it. A new life... 133
Freeside's problems are too big for you to have much impact. Neutral 50 Oh yeah, I heard some new things that you might find interesting. I'm going to have to start charging 100 caps per tip, though. 134
Neutral 50 After all, I have to save up for my ticket out of here, right? So how about it? Want a tip? 135
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic026 You believed that crap I said about giving the money away? Neutral 50 What? N-No, I knew you were just kidding. Ha ha. You're a funny one, all right. 136
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic027 I go places all the time. It's actually pretty easy to just pick up and leave. Neutral 50 That's true, you seem to always be on the move and it seems to be working out for you pretty well. 137
Neutral 50 I've already got a decent amount saved up. If I keep it up, there's no reason I shouldn't be able to go start over somewhere else soon. 138
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic028 You wouldn't last ten seconds out in the waste. Neutral 50 That's a hell of a thing to say. Build up a man's hopes, then dash them in front of him. 139
Neutral 50 And who says I couldn't survive just as well as you out there? People are always underestimating me, damn. 140
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic029 Sure, but what about this place? Isn't it your home? Neutral 50 This place is a shithole, but yeah, it's home. I've lived here all my life. I'd be leaving a piece of myself behind if I left. 141
Neutral 50 There'd be things I'd miss - the fun of watching the Kings kick the crap out of a thief, or the look of joy on a child's face after catching a rat. 142
Neutral 50 Ah, now you've got me all nostalgic-like. Maybe I'd be better off trying to find a way to make this place better than giving up and leaving. 143
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic030 I'm sorry. Sorry you're such a prissy asshole. Neutral 50 You're a real piece of work, you know that? 144
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic031 I'm sorry. I was out of line before. Neutral 50 It's cool. I'm just a little touchy about people making fun of me, especially smoothskins. But you're not all bad. Take the Followers, for example. 145
Neutral 50 Why, just the other week, one of them offered me a job. Can you imagine? Me, with a real job? 146
Neutral 50 Can you imagine? Me? With a real job? 147
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic032 I've already forgotten it. Neutral 50 Yeah, I bet you have. Not important enough for you to remember, huh? 148
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic033 Very classy. Neutral 50 You said it. With these threads, people are finally going to start noticing me. 149
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic034 As good as a ghoul in a suit can look. Neutral 50 Fuck you, human. We don't all share your wonderful complexion. Some of us have to make do, you know? 150
As good as a ghoul in a suit can look. Neutral 50 Anyway, I was just going to tell you that I've come across some new tidbits you might find interesting. 151
Neutral 50 And since you're just about my favorite person in the world, each one is only going to cost you 100 caps. Interested? 152
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic035 I don't care. Do you have any new info? Neutral 50 Yeesh, you're just all business, aren't you? Well, I like how I look, and that's what's important. Though it'd be nice if other people did too. {Emphasis on the first "I" in "I like how I look". Also, the last sentence is said quickly and slightly under his breath.} 153
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic036 Sure. What is it? Neutral 50 I don't want to mention it out in plain sight like this. You never know who might be listening. Follow me. 154
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic037 No right now. I'm busy. Neutral 50 Well, don't wait too long. What I've got is something you'd need to act on, quick. 155
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic038 Don't shoot! Here you go. Neutral 50 Wow, I didn't think it would be this easy. I should have done this years ago. Guess I'll be going then. 156
Neutral 50 Oh, here's a final tip - don't ever follow anyone into a dark alley in Freeside. Later, chump. 157
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic039 Why are you doing this? Neutral 50 Man, I'm tired of scrounging for caps from ungrateful idiots like you. It's past time I moved on to bigger and better things. 158
Neutral 50 Now are you going to hand over your caps, or am I going to shoot you and take them anyway? 159
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic040 I'm not giving you my caps. Neutral 50 Then you give me no choice. 160
VFreeformFreesideVFSRotfaceTopic041 I have a better idea. Why don't I just take all my caps back from your corpse? Neutral 50 You're welcome to try. 161
