Topic HVRangerMessWithRadio HVRangerMessWithRadio Hey, what are you doing to my radio? VDialogueH_HVRangerMessWit_00163287_1
Topic HVRangerMessWithRadio HVRangerMessWithRadio You just had to go messing with my radio again, didn't you? VDialogueH_HVRangerMessWit_00163288_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic000 So no one knows you're here? Standard practice. Rangers operate on our own most of the time. And that's how we like it. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163279_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic000 So no one knows you're here? Usually we call in our positions to McCarran to be relayed to other rangers, but I can handle myself. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163279_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic000 So no one knows you're here? I'm sure as hell not going to lose any sleep on account of a goddamn broken down radio. But it will shorten my stay if I can't fix it. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163279_3
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic002 Never mind. Let's talk about something else. You're a strange one, aren'tcha? Fine, what did you want to talk about? VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163280_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? Criminal scum that've infested this region, attacking caravans and regular folk just passing through. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163295_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? The dangerous ones are roamers, though there's another group that mostly stays put, over at the prison southwest of here. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163295_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? The NCR mounted an attack not long ago but they just used regular troops - no rangers - so that didn't amount to anything. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163295_3
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? Criminal scum that've infested this region, attacking caravans and regular folk just passing through. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163296_1 VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163295_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? The dangerous ones are roamers, though there's another group that mostly stays put, over at the prison southwest of here. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163296_2 VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163295_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? So far the brass haven't mustered up enough men to take the prison back. Long overdue if you ask me. But I'm just one man. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163296_3
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? Criminal scum that've infested this region, attacking caravans and regular folk just passing through. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163297_1 VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163295_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? The dangerous ones are roamers, though there's another group that mostly stays put, over at the prison southwest of here. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163297_2 VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163295_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic004 What are Powder Gangers? Or so they did, 'til NCR brass finally mustered up enough troops to take out the trash. Wish I could've been there. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163297_3
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic007 The Brotherhood of Steel has a base inside one of the bunkers here. They sent me after you. {Disbelief, thinks player's crazy}A Brotherhood base? Here? Are you shitting me? No one's seen them for years. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163291_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic007 The Brotherhood of Steel has a base inside one of the bunkers here. They sent me after you. I don't suppose you've got a scrap of evidence to support this wild-eyed claim of yours? VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163291_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic008 How about this explosive collar around my neck? I'll be. Let me take a look at that. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A9_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic008 How about this explosive collar around my neck? All this is, is a slave collar. Seen plenty of these infernal contraptions in my day, and I know just how to spring 'em. Hold still. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A9_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic008 How about this explosive collar around my neck? There, it's off. Now thing is, a slave collar seems a little too basic for the Brotherhood. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A9_3

Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic008 How about this explosive collar around my neck? That's not to say I don't believe you, just that maybe you got your facts mixed up a little. Let's head back to my camp and go over what you saw. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AA_4
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic009 HVRangerFixedIt I was just trying to fix it. I've been trying to get that damn thing working for days, and you decided to just start tinkering with it? Let me see that. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A0_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic009 HVRangerFixedIt [Lie] I just fixed it. [SUCCEEDED] I've been trying to get that damn thing working for days, and you think you fixed it in a few minutes? Let me see that. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A1_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic009 HVRangerFixedIt [Lie] I just fixed it. [FAILED] The hell you did. I know enough about electronics to know that what you were doing wasn't fixing it. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A2_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic009 HVRangerFixedIt [Lie] I just fixed it. So I'll give you one more chance to tell me what you were doing. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A2_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic010 Nothing, I swear. Okay, but if I find you messing with it again, there'll be hell to pay, you hear me? VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AB_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic010 Nothing, I swear. Didn't look like nothing to me. Draw! VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AC_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic010 Nothing, I swear. Just kidding. You weren't doing any harm that I could see. So what do you think? Can it be fixed? VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AC_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic010 Nothing, I swear. Didn't look like nothing to me. Draw! VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AD_1 VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AC_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic011 Actually, I rigged your radio with a bomb. Well, at least you're man enough to admit it. Now get the hell out of here. If I see you again, it'll be through my rifle's sight. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_0016327F_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic012 This seems like a bad location for a safehouse. Oh? And in your expert opinion, why would that be? VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_00163298_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic013 {Speech >= 50} <Lie> Powder gangers use these bunkers as hideouts once or twice a month. [SUCCEEDED] You've seen that with your own two eyes? VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AF_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic013 {Speech >= 50} <Lie> Powder gangers use these bunkers as hideouts once or twice a month. Goddamn, I knew Cooke's gang passed through these parts 'bout that frequently, but I didn't know they holed up here. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AF_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic013 {Speech >= 50} <Lie> Powder gangers use these bunkers as hideouts once or twice a month. Be a rude awakening, to find fifteen of those merciless bastards looking down at me snoozing on my bedroll! VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AF_3
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic013 {Speech >= 50} <Lie> Powder gangers use these bunkers as hideouts once or twice a month. Yep, I'd be better off setting up an ambush along one of their routes to catch stragglers. Thanks for the information. You may've saved my life. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632AF_4
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic013 {Speech >= 50} Well, criminals come through here. And the storms, they're bad. Right? [FAILED] See now, thing is, I fancy myself a bit of a tracker. And I don't see much in the way of tracks 'round here. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632B0_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic013 {Speech >= 50} Well, criminals come through here. And the storms, they're bad. Right? Could say that's on account of the dust storms. But if there were criminals using these bunkers as hideouts, I'd know. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632B0_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic014 Not sure. Just feels bad. I see. Well, I'll take that under advisement. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_0016327E_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic015 You have to get out of here. Now why would I do that? You see some powder gangers on the approach or something? VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_0016329F_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic016 What are you doing here? Well, I was thinking I might set this bunker up as a safehouse. Between the remote location and the dust storms, I figured it was ideal. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A4_1
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic016 What are you doing here? Course, seems a lot less remote since you showed up. Plus I haven't been able to get my radio working, and a safehouse's no good without one. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A4_2
Topic VDialogueHiddenValleyHVRangerTopic016 What are you doing here? I reckon I'll stick around awhile, patrol for troublemakers, see if I can get that radio working. VDialogueH_VDialogueHidden_001632A4_3
