GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 Well hey there, stranger! I'm Manya. The old coot wandering around here is my husband, Nathan. 1
Neutral 50 If there's anything we can help you with, ask me. Don't ask Nathan, he'll just blabber at you about the damned Enclave all day. 2
GREETING Sad 50 Oh... hello, stranger. I'm sorry. I was just thinking about Nathan, my husband. He passed not too long ago. 3
Neutral 50 I guess I'm not really over it. I'm not sure if I ever will be. Look, you have a good day, I need to go. 4
GREETING Sad 75 I'm sorry. I was just thinking about Nathan. It's been so quiet around here since he passed... 5
GREETING Neutral 50 What do you need, honey? 6
GREETING Neutral 50 If you see Nathan, tell that man to get his ass back home. 7
GREETING Neutral 50 You seen Nathan anywhere around here? 8
MS08SympathizerClue1 I'm interested in this android from the Commonwealth. Neutral 50 We don't do that anymore. Well, not until the heat dies down. The Railroad isn't operating anymore. Best forget it about it now. 9
MS08SympathizerClue2 I know you know something about this android from the Commonwealth. Fear 10 Last I heard, they were looking for a surgeon and a computer technician. But you best keep your head down, honey. Those hounds are still out there. {hushed and conspiratorial} 10
Are you part of the Railroad? What do you know about this android?
I know you're part of the Railroad. What do you know about the android? Neutral 50 A while back they were asking around for a computer genius to give our friend a new set of memories. You know, a clean slate and all that. {hushed and conspiratorial} 11
Do you know where this android had his face or memory replaced?
I know you know where this android received his operations. Talk. Surprise 50 Pinkerton at Rivet City took care of him a while back. Was a complete success. No one will recognize that robot now. I'm glad. {hushed and conspiratorial} 12
Neutral 50 But you hush yourself about all that. The hounds are still out sniffing around. {low and conspiratorial} 13
MegManyaMegaton I had some questions about this town's history. Neutral 50 I can tell you just about anything you want to know, honey. Megaton's history ain't no secret. 14
MegManyaMegatonAirplaneParts What's this place made of? Neutral 50 Long ago, before the war, there used to be machines they were like buses, but they flew through the sky, taking people anywhere they wanted to go. 15
Neutral 50 You didn't have to walk, you just went to the air station, bought a ticket, and took to the skies. Anywhere in the world, you just up and flew there. 16
Neutral 50 When the war happened, the machines started dropping from the sky. Everyone around here thinks that the bomb made the crater, but it didn't. 17
Neutral 50 The crater provided good cover from the dust storms and when my daddy and the rest of the town decided to build the walls, they used what they had. 18
MegManyaMegatonAirplaneParts1 So why didn't they move the bomb? Neutral 50 Some of us wanted to. But the Church of Atom was just getting its start then. We needed their help to build the walls and clear the wreckage. 19
Neutral 50 If we'd have tried to move the bomb, they would have refused to help. 20
Neutral 50 Besides, a lot of people just wanted to leave it alone. It didn't seem to be hurting anything and who knows what would happen if we messed with it. 21
MegManyaMegatonAirplaneParts2 There are a lot of parts here for just one machine. Neutral 50 Good eye. You're right honey, there are. There was an air station a couple of miles from here. It'd been stripped of everything except the planes. 22
Neutral 50 My daddy got a bunch of people together to go out there, break apart the machines and drag back what we could use. It took 'em a couple of months. 23
Neutral 50 You can't even tell where the air station was anymore. The Wasteland just took it back. 24
MegManyaMegatonAirplaneParts3 Why build the walls out of some old flying machine? Neutral 50 It's a hell of a lot easier than trying to find enough parts to build walls and houses from nothing. The scrap was there, why not use it? 25
Neutral 50 Besides, it's sturdy. It keeps the Raiders and the dust storms out. Not all of us had the luck to be born in a vault, you know. 26
MegManyaMegatonAirplanePartsEND I had another question about Megaton. Neutral 50 Sure thing, hon. 27
MegManyaMegatonEND I don't want to talk about Megaton anymore. Neutral 50 Well, you come on back any time you want to hear more. 28
MegManyaMegatonHistory How did the town start? Neutral 50 Well, originally, it started as a hole in the ground. My papi talked about how his father and the original settlers just hid in this crater. 29
Neutral 50 It was enough to keep them safe from the dust storms. When things cooled down and people started wandering into the Wastes, some stayed behind. 30
Neutral 50 The wanderers started coming back here to trade their stuff. By the time my papi was born, the town was a full on trading center. 31
Neutral 50 Papi got rich on the caravan routes and eventually convinced the others to build the walls to hold off the Raiders. 32
MegManyaMegatonHistory1 Why did they build the walls? Neutral 50 Well, the Raiders, for one. Once the town got big enough, they'd wait until the traders and their guards were away, then come in and clean us out! 33
Neutral 50 Now the Super Mutants... They were a whole other breed of problem. They'd kill us if they had to, but mostly they tried to drag people away! Alive! 34
Neutral 50 So, eventually, my father did something about it. Him and a few others organized the traders and the citizens and built the walls. 35
Neutral 50 So we're pretty safe now. Still, I wish those Brotherhood of Steel fellers hadn't hit on such hard times. They really helped keep the wolves at bay. 36
MegManyaMegatonHistory2 So it was just a collection of traders in the beginning? Neutral 50 Not at first. It was a collection of people trying to get into the vault, people worshipping the bomb, and a few other refugees. 37
Neutral 50 Then the traders came. Now the caravans take care of most of the trading, but before they were set up, it was all Megaton. 38
Neutral 50 I worked on the caravans with my father for a while. That's how I met that worthless bag of liver spots I call a husband. 39
MegManyaMegatonHistory3 So anyone can live in Megaton? Neutral 50 No. Space is limited these days. You see all of these people wandering around here? They live up in the common house and aren't really citizens. 40
Neutral 50 Most people around here keep one eye open around strangers, but me, I can spot a Raider spy at 100 meters. I'm not worried about it at all. 41
Neutral 50 But if having meetings and pretending to vote on things makes the others feel safer, so be it. 42
MegManyaMegatonHistoryEND That's enough of the history lesson. Neutral 50 If you say so, honey. 43
MegManyaMegatonHowDidYouGetHere How did you get here? Neutral 50 I was born here, actually. Just like my papi. Oh, for a while I helped him scavenge and then later on his caravan. 44
Neutral 50 But traipsing around the Wasteland is work for young people. After I met Nathan, I just wanted to stop moving around so much. 45
Neutral 50 We've been here ever since. Of course, I can't say that it's been good for Nathan's sanity... 46
MegManyaMegatonOtherPeople Where did everyone else come from? Neutral 50 Oh, they come from all over... all over. You name it. The Stahl family grew up out east somewhere. Lucy's from some little settlement to the north. 47
Neutral 50 Billy doesn't really talk about where he's from. Doc Church used to live in Rivet City. Jericho... well... let's just say that men can change. 48
Neutral 50 ...I hope. 49
MegManyaMegatonWhosInCharge Who's in charge around here? Neutral 50 Well, technically, no one. But you can't put two people in a room together without one of them trying to govern the other. 50
Neutral 50 But it depends on who you ask. Lucas Simms appointed himself the Sheriff. He throws anyone out who causes too much trouble. 51
Neutral 50 But Colin Moriarty runs just about everything else. Not much happens here that he doesn't know about. Or plan. 52
Who's in charge around here? Neutral 50 Well, technically, no one. But you can't put two people in a room together without one of them trying to govern the other. 53
Neutral 50 But it depends on who you ask. Lucas Simms appointed himself the Sheriff. He throws anyone out who causes too much trouble. 54
Neutral 50 Colin Moriarty used to run just about everything else. Not much happened here that he doesn't know about. Or plan. I guess he got what was coming. 55
Who's in charge around here? Neutral 50 Well, technically, no one. But you can't put two people in a room together without one of them trying to govern the other. 56
Neutral 50 But it depends on who you ask. Lucas Simms appointed himself the Sheriff. Before he died, he threw anyone out who caused too much trouble. 57
Neutral 50 Now Colin Moriarty runs just about everything. Not much happens here that he doesn't know about. Or plan. You ask me, he was behind Lucas' death. 58
Who's in charge around here? Neutral 50 Well, technically, no one. But you can't put two people in a room together without one of them trying to govern the other. 59
Neutral 50 But it depends on who you ask. It used to be that Lucas Simms and Colin Moriarty fought each other for control. 60
Neutral 50 But with the two of them gone, who's to say what will happen around here? I'm just hoping that the Raiders don't show up again. 61
MegManyaMegatonWhosInChargeEND I think I get the picture. Neutral 50 All right then. Anything else you wanted to know? 62
MegManyaMegatonWhosInChargeMoriarty Tell me about Colin Moriarty. Anger 50 That man is the scum of the Earth. He keeps the drunks around here soaking in liquor and that poor Nova, that girl deserves better. 63
Neutral 50 And don't even get me started on how he treats Gob. Just because the boy looks dead doesn't mean that he should be treated like that. 64
Neutral 50 That man has his fingers in everything around here. Just watch what you say about him, it'll always get back. 65
MegManyaMegatonWhosInChargeSimms Tell me about Lucas Simms. Neutral 50 That man tries to bring law to this place. Lost cause if you ask me, but I respect his trying. He does seem to keep people in line though. 66
Neutral 50 Other than that weird cowboy thing of his, I don't have much to complain about. 67
MegTownEnd That's all I needed to know. Neutral 50 Sure thing, honey. 68
MegTownRumors What's the word around town? Sad 100 I'm sorry, I just haven't been paying any attention at all since Nathan died. {Still missing her husband.} 69
What's the word around town? Neutral 50 There's only one thing that concerns me in this town these days: what my damn fool husband is doing. 70
Neutral 50 He wanders around here all day and all night, preaching about the Enclave and tryin' to get parts for his guns. 71
Neutral 50 I'm not sure who's the bigger fool, him or me. After all, I married him. 72
SpeechChallengeFailure SpeechChallengeFailure Fear 25 I don't know anything about that. {afraid the player knows the secret, trying to keep the matter secret} 73
