The Here and Now perk immediately grants an additional experience level, complete with all the advantages thatIn-game spelling brings.— In-game description

Here and Now is a perk in Fallout 3.

Effects

This perk "advances the character to the next experience level, if available, with all advantages that entails" - Except one advantage. The level you just gained has no perk, as Here and Now effectively disappears after giving you another level. In simpler terms, you level up again at the cost of a perk.

Notes

  • You cannot take this perk at level 20, unless you have Broken Steel, in which case you cannot take this perk at level 30.
  • This perk will not work past level 34, because each DLC increases the level cap by 5. Since the toolset cannot load all installed DLC at once, it is difficult to determine the actual level allowed. You can still calculate and set it manually if you have access to the toolset (calculate number of DLCs installed * 5)
  • If the player wishes to pursue a Neutral Karma path to obtain the achievements at the respected levels, Here And Now can help jump to the next level in case the player wishes not to risk waiting another level where they might have to make Karma decisions that dip down to Evil or above to Good Karma in addition to gaining XP, which might lead to accidentally getting to the desired level with Evil or Good Karma rather than Neutral.
