Mentioned inFallout 2

Sam Pritchard was a member of the group that made a failed attempt at breaching the defenses of the Sierra Army Depot.

Background[edit | edit source]

Horrified at the mayhem the automated sentry turrets caused among his friends, he made his way back to New Reno. There, he drew a copy of his own map that detailed the route to the army depot and gave it to Orville Wright, dying shortly thereafter (his throat being cut)[1] and ending up in Golgotha.[2] His headstone reads: "Here lies Sam Pritchard: He talked too much so we gave him a second mouth."[1]

  1. 1.0 1.1 NIPRIGRV.MSG
  2. The Chosen One: "{438}{}{I'm interested.}"
    Orville Wright: "{465}{}{It so happens, not too long ago, I came across a map that shows an old army base in the mountains not far from here. You find a way in there, and I'll see that you're taken care of…}"
    The Chosen One: "{469}{}{Why should I go? Didn't you send somebody already?}"
    Orville Wright: "{480}{}{(Mr. Wright's expression tightens for a moment, then he snorts.) Heh. Not exactly. The fellas I got the map from are dead. They were a tough bunch, but they all got wiped out tryin' to get inside the base.}"
    The Chosen One: "{481}{}{They didn't even get INSIDE?}"
    Orville Wright: "{485}{}{Yeah, the only survivor said…shortly before his unfortunate death…said that there were some kind of super gun turrets guarding the entrance. Wiped out most of his boys.}"
    The Chosen One: "{486}{}{What happened to the survivor?}"
    Orville Wright: "{495}{}{Oh, ol' Sam Pritchard? Sad story. Got drunk one night, mentioned to my boy Keith he'd found this 'base,' and 'fore y'know it, he draws me a map and DIES. He's sleeping in Golgotha now.}"
