Hello, fellas. I had just travelled to New Vegas for the first time, and was wondering how do folks in here usually make the trip. When is it that you decide leaving DC, and do you justify it in any way?
I was having great fun in DC and was honestly forgetting at times that New Vegas was waiting.
At the time I had Sydney and Dogmeat as a follower. Dogmeat got separated and wound up waiting for me at Vault 101 entrance.
I had just gone though the Waters of Life questline, escaped with the scientists to the Citadel. In the citadel Sydney asked if she could stay and learn. I didn't know how long that would take, and was surprised when she said she'd be there for two weeks. Was somewhat jarring that the Lone Wonderer was abandoned like that straight after loosing his father. Nice for RP.
So I figured my character would get to Vault 101 to pick up his dog. Aaaand got the pip-boy message about help request from Amata.
Went in, helped everybody. Got told to leave. Again.
So, with father dead, Sydney off doing her own business, his homestead having spurned him again, and the Enclave flooding the Capital Wasteland, I decided it was a good moment for Lone Wonderer to do what his father did 20 years ago. And left for Mojave.
So there is my story. How did you do it? Anyone role-played it, Gopher-style?
