    • George Taylor, having just come back from a patrol walked into the saloon. Sitting down on a bar stool he ordered a shot of hard whiskey, he needed it after having fought his way through a Legion ambush along the Nipton highway. He looked around the room and spied a pretty looking girl sitting across from her, deciding he'd try he walked over and sat down next to the young woman. She had a caravan shotgun and a cowboy hat on and damn did she look good. But after a quick conversation he realized he was barking up the wrong tree and made up some lame excuse and left the bar. Still having his beer in hand he walked to the bunk room and laid down on his quickly falling asleep, it wouldn't stay that way though he would be having nightmares the whole night. Dreaming of the horror he saw in Arizona, his comrades being wiped out by Legionnaires, and one a massive man with a huge sword and an imposing mask. These images would haunt his dreams for the rest of the night.

    • Aaron noted the NCR soldier seemingly drinking is sorrows away and felt the prompting to stay. He radioed his wife that he'd be staying and followed the soldier into the open barracks.

      "Rough day, I take it?" he asked, sitting down on the bed next to the soldier's. "This won't help."

      He took the beer away from the soldier and held out his hand.

      "Aaron Scott," he introduced.

      george seathed at the young courier but immediatly felt ashamed at having reacted in a such a way, as the Courier turned to leave he stood.

      "Hey" he tapped him on the shoulder, "Sorry about that its just...well it helps take the edge off you know" he explained, "I just got back from a messy patrol on the Nipton highway, we had a caravan we were escorting for Far Go Traders when a Legion raiding party jumped us"

He walks over to the bar and sits on a stool and looks over to the bartender and says.

      "Hey can I get a Nuka Cola over here."

      "Well sorry about that. You guys are in prayers," Aaron told him. "But what you shouldn't do is drink to take the edge off, it's a depressant and I've seen bad things come from alcohol. Why don't you have a Nuka or a Sunset, instead? You'll feel way better."

      The Mormon went back to the bar and laid a few caps down.

      "Nuka and a Sunset. I'll drink whichever he doesn't."

      He gave a tip of the hat to the man in the duster that had just ordered a Nuka as well, then turned to the troubled soldier.

      "Never caught your name, by the way."

      "Friend of yours?" he looked to the bartender, "I'll have a...Sunset Sasparilla"

      Aaron sipped the Nuka and listened to the two.

      "Well it certainly sounds dangerous. If you need a medic, I'm game to help out. Got a bit of Med-Tech on hand, plus I can whip up a nice batch of healing powder in a snap if we're away from civilization."

      He turned on his sleek PIP-Boy and hooked up a radio link with his wife.

      "Hey I'm gonna be helping out a bit more out here. I'll call later on, okay?"

      His wife, Jane, answered: Do what you need to do, but get back soon."

      "I will. Love you."

      He turned off the radio.

      "Well you boys have got yourself a medic."

      Aaron started checking the conditions of his weapons; his magnum revolver and rifle, sharpness of the combat knives and machete, finally the power in the tasing function of the machete itself. Then he looked at the his medical supply, finding it decently stocked.

      "So who's the bounty on?"

    • Lachlan took another sip of Nuka Cola and looked over at George and Aaron.

      "Some ex-NCR Ranger called Eric Jones was aparently kicked out due to mental problems....he went on a killing spree killing anyone he saw aparently he went down this way hopefully I can find him and take him down before he attacks this outpost or kills more citizens, The bounty is pretty big 1000 caps for his head and bringing him in alive is not an option it seems."

      George goes back to his bunk and picked up his rifle, magnum along with his bandoleer of ammo.

      "So pal, whats your name again? Do you know where this Eric Jones is located? he got a hideout, place he likes to hang his hat?"

      He flicked the cylinder of the magnum out and checked that all the holes had rounds in 'em, then he pulled up his Battle Rifle and checked he had a full clip.

      he turned to Aaron, "You got a map on that thing?"

    • "I do, actually," Aaron answered. "Our new friend here probably has one too. 3000 Series, right? Mine's that scaled down 5000 from Cali'. Same OS, but it's not as durable."

      "Oh and yes I have a few leads he is aparently near Crescent Canyon."

    • Aaron referenced the map of his PIP-Boy with Lachlan's and grinned.

      "That should have a few good sniping points."

      He checked the alignment of his Trail carbine's scope.

      "I could give some cover fire from above and leave you guys a few stimpacks and Med-X. Some Rad-Away and Rad-X, too, I hear it's irradiated.

    • "Goodnight George," Aaron said. "'Night Lachlan."

      Aaron found the empty bunk next to George, stowed his weapons and gear, then knelt by the side of his bed to say a prayer.

      Heavenly Father, I thank thee for this day and the opportunity before me to serve and bring about the protection of the good people of the Mojave. Tonight, I pray, lend me strength in spirit and aim as I undertake the task I have committed to assist my new comrades in. Bless George that he may feel thy love and spirit in all things and bless the lives of the brave troops and their souls that have been brought unto thee. Bless my wife with safety and our town with good health. I pray and ask these things in the name of thy son, Jesus Christ, amen.

      "Goodnight." Lachlan said.

      Lachlan stood up and exited the barracks and walked down the road and looked at his Pip-boy and radioed his superiors.

      "Ok almost near that traitor made up a story saying he was some some ex ranger with mental issues might be getting some help taking him down but catching him will probably be impossible but hopefully we can avenge the soldiers he betrayed." Lachlan said into the radio.

      "Good and hopefully the NCR doesn't get involved somehow, Give that traitor hell Henderson out" Lieutenant Henderson replied over radio.

    • (Now it's proper order of me, Cain, then Spock)

      Aaron laid in his bunk and looked at George for a moment before staring up at the ceiling to ponder.

      Now that I think about it, I haven't really seen any bounty notice about some mental ex-Ranger. I wonder where that Lachlan fellow got his information...

      Oh what am I thinking? I'm sure it's nothing. If he's a threat, I'll know what to do.

    • George laid there for a good hour without sleeping, If this Lachlan is some bounty hunter how come I haven't heard of him prior to this? And this Eric...I would've heard about a rogue Ranger...strange.

      George roled over on his side and then to the other, he spied Aaron but where was Lachlan? He stood and walked to the now empty saloon, the bartender was gone and the radio quietly played radio new vegas, he looked around No Lachlan he walked to the door where the night sentry was posted, he quickly saluted George. 

      "You seen a fella by the name of Lachlan? About yay big wearin a duster"

      The sentry shrugged,

      Ah forget it, he probably met one of the prostitutes that hang around here, well back to bed.

    • Aaron awoke early with a stretch before rolling off of the bed and offering a quick prayer to allow the endeavor to be a success. He donned his gear and looked to the other bunks, seeing Lachlan, finally, and decided to go into the bar to get some breakfast.

      Long hike south. Best to be prepared and fueled up.

      He ordered a bowl of Sugar Bombs and Brahmin steak with a Sunset to put some caffine in his system.

    • George was always a morning person he had always been since he was raised on his father's farm, he walked over to the bar and ordered up a steak cooked medium-rare and chowed down, spying Aaron he slid his plate next to him and sat down.

      "Morning Aaron, say funny thing I was thinking about last night, I've never hear of this Eric Jones guy and I'm NCR military this sort of thing would've gotten to me"

      George cut a generous piece of the steak and wolfed it down.

      "It just seems a little off to me you know?" George continued, "Have you seen Lachlan? he disappeared last night"

    • Lachlan waked up late due to his "midnight walk" he got up and picked up his Rifle and holsterd on his back and walked over to the bar and seated himslef one stool between him and Aaron and George.

      Lachlan pulled out a suspiciosly new looking MRE that had an odd marking on it and a Vault 116 Canteen out of his duster pockets and procceded to open the MRE and pulled out a knife and fork and ate the contents within it. 

      While he was eating Lachlan turned over to look at Aaron and George.

      "Morning"

        Loading editor
    • Due to Lachlan's lateness, Aaron had finished his breakfast and started on his Sunset.

      "Oh there you are, Lachlan. Good morning."

      He noticed the MRE Lachlan was eating, but paid it no mind.

      "So, Eric Jones, what's his story?"

        Loading editor
    • "Morning Lachlan where've you been?"

      George spied the MRE

      "Interesting breakfast choice, Lachlan I prefer a Brahmin steak myself"

      George made a mental note of the MRE and decided to forget bout it for the time being.

    • "Oh I was just having a walk last night thats all you know."

      Lachlan then looked at Aaron

      "I Didn't get many details about the guy really only that he was an ex-ranger and he had mental problems."

      Lachlan picked up his Canteen and sipped a mouthful looking a little nervous.

    • Aaron was typically trustful, but he was no fool.

      "There's more to it then you're letting on," he stated. "Seriously, what's the real story?"

      Aaron carried a serious face about him as he took a swig of Sunset.

    • "Yeah i like to know whom i'm going to kil before I kill him, the Legion deserve it but I don't want to kill someone you have a grudge against, so what this guy steal your girlfriend or somethin?"

      ever cautious and alert George slowly moved his hand down to his magnum without drawing it.

      "Please enlighten us"

        Loading editor
    • Lachlan sighed and put his canteen back in his duster's pocket.

      "Ok...Eric Jones was a member of the group I'm apart of he went rouge killing two soldiers and one officer and I was sent to kill or capture him so then justice can be done for the people he has killed, He will most likely be heavily armed with plasma weaponry and wearing power armor it'll be hard to take him down."

        Loading editor
    • Enclave...

      "Plasma weapons and power armor... Sounds dangerous."

      Aaron had no real trust for the Enclave, but he felt prompted to help Lachlan anyway.

      "Well the sooner we get to the canyon, the sooner Jones can face... justice."

        Loading editor
    • "You know if you had just been up front about it these sort of problems we probably would've helped"

      George came to the realization he wasn't the only enclave member left out there.

      "Power aromor eh? well I got these special sabot rounds for my rifle they'll go right through power armor but they can only penetrate in weak armored areas, like the eye piece"

    • Lachlan whispered quietly to Aaron and George.

      "I Had reasons to...lie to both of and now it seems you probably know that I am in the Enclave I just didn't want anyone here to know since well....the NCR charge anyone related with the Enclave with "war crimes" and if they found out that we were in the Mojave....wouldn't end well for anyone."

      Lachlan breathed a sighed of relief.

      "Ok we are going to need supplies I can call in a Vertibird to bring me my power armour weapons and some armor piercing rounds, Oh and George thats a pretty hard place to hit...wait how do you know that the eye pieces are a weakness?"

        Loading editor
    • "Too noisy," Aaron whispered. "And I doubt headshots are going to be needed, but we need to get a move on if we're going to do anything about Jones."

      The Mormon stood up and took a final chug of his Sunset, fitting his weapons comfortably to ready himself for the hike.

      "We'll talk more once we're away from prying ears."

    • "Agreed" george said to Aaron,

      George looked at Laclan, "I served four tours against the brotherhood. you tend to learn a few things while you have that big of a disadvantage", George leaned over to Lachlan, "My old man was a verti-assualt trooper back in the day, he still has his old suit of advanced power armour"

      George reached into his ammo case and pulled out the sleak, sabots.

      "These my friend are depleted Uranium rounds can punch through just about anything" He put the sabots back, "How are your buds gonna feel about helping an NCR officer?"

        Loading editor
    • "I Agree we should get to somewhere with...less people, Hmmm depleted Urainium...that sounds deadly could work but I might bring In a gatling laser or maybe something else...and let me guess you're old man was stationed at Navarro right heard about what happened there years ago damn shame....anyway lets get going."

      Lachlan stood up and started walking towards the door.

        Loading editor
    • Aaron went for the door as well, following Lachlan out.

      "Okay, so, let's not make killing a priority. I'm a good enough shot, I can disable his plasma weapons, easy enough. Maybe cripple a limb or two if I can convert some of George's armor piercing rounds to fit magnum rounds. But let's not kill unless necessary, please."

        Loading editor
    • "Yeah sure but if this guy is as hard core of a killer as Laclan says than I'm not hesitating to put one in 'em" George responded, "Oh and by the way lets go get those radiation suits I told you guys about the cave isn't far from here"

      George finished his steak and nuka, holstered his magnum and slung his rifle over his shoulder,

      "Lets roll"

        Loading editor
    • "I Won't be needing a radiation suit when I get my armor brought in I'll be fine but you two will still need something to protect you...so I guess lead the way George"

    • "God you never get used to how hot these suits get" George said as he surveyed the canyon, a thick green fog rose from it and even from this distance he could here the geiger counter on Aaron's pip-boy going off.

      "So that crazy nut is down there somewhere? Don't look that bad, I've only been down there once and that was when brass thought it be smart if we ran caravans through the canyon to avoid Legion ambushes thats how Ranger Station Echo was opened up" george looked around, "Its a joke guys"

    • "Well those suits won't hold up againts a plasma caster, A Vertibird should be here soon with some supplies and if we capture him we'll put him in there and transport him back to base to be put on trail but if he is killed we are going to have a hard time putting him in there since well you know power armor is heavy."

      Lachlan checked his Pip-boy to see how far away the Vertibird is.

      "Hmm seems like it's be here sooner guess it's the good weather."

        Loading editor
    • Aaron did not wear the radiation suit at all. He preferred the mobility of his attire and Rad-X.

      "Well listen, I've been thinking. I ought to go ahead. It's possible that Jones would be willing to cooperate with one that isn't... affiliated with opposing parties of his. I could talk to him and get him to come quietly without bloodshed."

      Lachlan equiped his armour and Gatling laser and exited the Vertibird and ran towards the battle.

    • Aaron let out a silent prayer and started climbing along the canyon wall, taking care to not be hit with plasma fire.

      "No grenades, but there's always this that I picked up."

      He took a stick of dynamite from his pocket, and a lighter. Lighting the fuse, he tossed the stick in the direction of the plasma fire and un slung his trail carbine. Aaron aimed down the scope and took aim at what resembled a plasma weapon, and fired a .44 magnum round at it, hoping to possibly damage the weapon.

      Yet as he shouted that Aaron's round hit the rifle out of the mans hand, making it unusable, George loaded a clip of normal rounds into his rifle and fired three rounds at the man in power armour.

      (good playing with you spock, hope you return, how about we try and get Raneiro to play with us?)

    • "He will most likely get a life senstence...or well... a firing squad, It's been...fun working with you two hopefully we meat again some day oh and give those legion guys hell"

      Lachlan looked over to Eric Jones.

      "Now Private Eric Jones....get a move on"

      Eric Jones grumbled and started walking "Yes...Sergeant" Jones said to Lachlan

      Lachlan followed Eric Jones closely with a gun aimed at his head and they eventully reached the Vertibird and stepped in and the Vertibird lifted off and hovered over Aaron and George and dropped a large metal box with a parachute that had 10000 caps and two plasma pistols with ammunition with a note saying "It's ok this is my own stuff I found not the Enclave's" then the Vertibird flew North-East to Little Navarro.

    • "Heck Yeah! I'm gonna have to make a stop back to the Outpost though I gotta grab the rest of my gear before we move out to the Legion camp"

      George picked up his share of the caps and tucked them into his pack, he then threw his rifle over his shoulder, "You coming?"

      George than picked up the plasma pistol, "Well haven't fired one of these in quite a long time"

    • Aaron took his share of caps and looked at the plasma pistol.

      "Yeah, coming. Can't say I've actually fired one of these things. Same basic concept as a gun, right? Anyway, lead on."

      He contemplated the fate of Eric Jones as he followed George. Silently, he prayed for some form of forgiveness for him and that his penance would be fair to his crimes, but also that Jones would repent inside. He ended the prayer, thinking about the new challenge ahead.

      "Is this Legion camp a typical military encampment or... a slaving camp?"

        Loading editor
    • "Typical military encampment geez....Aaron if you think these guys are soldiers like myself and my men then your dead wrong, these are animals who go around enslaving people for the fun of it" George replied bitterly, "And yeah its basically the same concept as a gun accept your dealing with super heated plasma and not bullets"

    • "I didn't say they were like you and your men, just clarifying."

      Aaron walked alongside George now.

      "As for what's bothering me, we believe similar things, right? We've read our scriptures and tried to follow righteously in the things we do, yes?

      "The world today is a test of faith for me, I suppose. For a few moments in the canyon, I contemplated not letting the Enclave take Jones away. We didn't even wait to hear his side of things, why he killed those men. Now he may be imprisoned or executed unjustly, without any of us truly knowing why.

      "Then the Legion. They're simply... horrid. They're armies are based upon slaves and trading. To me, that is unforgivable. And to think that one of my brethren helped found such a people, though he served penance for it in fire.

      "I don't know, George. Sometimes it's hard to have faith in these troubled times, right? Too few remember that they are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father.

      "Oh but listen to me babble. I feel like I'm a missionary without a companion. And weren't you burned in the leg, earlier?"

      "And i do agree the people of the wasteland have indeed lost their faith, they've lost their way, but yet like God flooded the earth to restart mankind, he did the same with nuclear bombs and the NCR is Israel with Aradesh as our Abraham and the Legion? Phillistines"

      "You're generalizing the Legion as a people that do not repent, not thinking about the individuals," Aaron retorted.

      "A single person, among a battalion, in the Legion might think differently about slaving, even reject it. Is she deserving to be burned just because she's in the Legion?

      "I once met a defected Legionnaire. A Decanus. I don't know her whole story myself, but she left the Legion after her she invaded some town and was supposed to bring in slaves. She defected and tried to escape. I spotted her running and I grazed her arm. Then just looking at her, a face of pain and remorse, a promting to help her came to me. I healed her other injuries and took her to an NCR outpost. Didn't see her since, but it made me remember that the people in the Legion aren't beyond forgiveness.

      "But I agree, the Legion is a force that needs to be stopped. Just don't forget that they arestill people. Greatly misguided, but still people.

      "Now my dad's a tobacco planter and successful buisnessmen, he doesn't hate the NCR even after what they did he cureently is trying to get a law passed that would pardon all ex-enclave troops"
