The imposter sheepsquatch is a unique assaultron found in Appalachia in 2102.


The modified assaultron unit was developed by Calvin van Lowe in his attempt to hunt down the fabled Sheepsquatch cryptid. It was designated "Mary's Little Lamb" by the Bysshe Company who sponsored van Lowe's development of it.[1]

Originally intended by the Garrahan Mining Company as a counter to Hornwright Industrial Mining Company Strikebreaker robots, the project was canned and handed off to Allan Garrahan,[2] who handed off the project to one of Bysshe's fixers, codenamed Big Bad Wolf.[3]

Bysshe hoped to throw property values in Lewisburg into a freefall that way, so that it could buy the town up.[4] The project team consisted of Calvin (codenamed Blacksheep) as the main developer, Bo-Peep as the handler, and Big Bad Wolf as the fixer.[5] At some point, the imposter sheepsquatch would escape containment and Big Bad Wolf would attempt to contain the rogue assaultron through the pylon ambush site.[6]


Gameplay attributesEdit

The imposter sheepsquatch is invisible and invulnerable until the three pylons nearby are activated. Activating a pylon places a damaging effect on the player character who activated it and notifies all event participants of who has activated which pylon if they have the event tracked. The imposter sheepsquatch becomes visible and loses its invulnerability as long as all three pylons are all active. If any of the pylons become deactivated through the death of the player character who activated it, the imposter sheepsquatch becomes invisible and invulnerable again.
