GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 Look, Rexie, someone new's come to see us. {Sighs} Poor boy. He hasn't been feeling well lately. I'm the King. What can I do for you? 1
GREETING Neutral 50 That's strange, I don't see ol' Rexie with you. He usually comes back here whenever he's not with you. Where'd he get to? 2
GREETING Neutral 50 Why Rexie, you look all better, boy! Good as new! {talks in dog-owner-schmoopy voice} Did my Rexie get a new brain? 3
GREETING Neutral 50 I sure appreciate you coming back. You think a little more about my offer? 4
GREETING Neutral 50 I... I can't believe Pace is gone... He was always right here, you know? Always cracking me up with some story or another. 5
Neutral 50 Anyway, what did you want? 6
GREETING Neutral 50 I heard someone got to my friends who were injured. Looks like we'll never find out who did it now. 7
Neutral 50 Did you want something? I'm all kinda shook up right now. 8
GREETING Neutral 50 My eyes on the street tell me you haven't paid our mutual friend Orris a visit yet. Until you do, we got nothing to talk about. 9
GREETING Neutral 50 What do you have for me? 10
GREETING Neutral 50 { Top level topics for The King } 11
GREETING Neutral 50 Have you found anything out? Or were you just here to chat? 12
GREETING Neutral 50 You find out somethin' about them soldier boys yet? 13
GREETING Neutral 50 I've already heard all about what happened, and all I can say is that I, and all of Freeside, thank you. Thank you very much. 14
GREETING Neutral 50 I heard all about what happened. Maybe it's time for a little more talkin' and a little less fightin'. 15
GREETING Neutral 50 Things have been lots better since you helped with with those soldier boys. Thanks again. So what can I do for you? 16
GREETING Neutral 50 What can the King do for you? 17
VEndingKings VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} With the King dead and most of their gang slain by the Courier, the remaining Kings fled the area, never to be heard from again. 18
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} After the NCR victory at Hoover Dam, the temporary truce between them and the Kings blossomed into a full-scale relief effort for the people. 19
Neutral 50 While the NCR made repeated entreaties that Freeside join the Republic, the Kings steadfastly maintained their independence. 20
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} Accusing the Kings of lying with a foreign invader for their newfound ties to the NCR, Mr. House punished them by ordering their forced removal. 21
Neutral 50 The Kings, defiant to the end, were destroyed to the last man by House's Securitrons. 22
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} Following the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, Freeside came to be known as one of the more stable areas in the region. 23
Neutral 50 Ironically, NCR refugees found Freeside safer than most of the rest of New Vegas, where resentment still lingers. 24
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} After their victory at Hoover Dam, the Legion quickly set about destroying all remaining resistance, including any groups with ties to the NCR. 25
Neutral 50 Upon discovering the Kings' newfound relationship with the NCR, Legionaires flooded the streets of Freeside, and the Kings were quickly destroyed. 26
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} While the NCR was busy fighting the Legion at Hoover Dam, some Kings took it upon themselves to attack NCR citizens and soldiers around Freeside. 27
Neutral 50 When the NCR moved to secure the region, they cracked down the hardest on Freeside, sending a full platoon to sweep the neighborhood. 28
Neutral 50 Most of the Kings were killed, with the few survivors driven out into the wastes. 29
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} During the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, some Kings took it upon themselves to launch several attacks on NCR citizens and soldiers around Freeside. 30
Neutral 50 Mr. House looked on these actions favorably, seeing them as proof of the Kings' loyalty to New Vegas, and decided to leave them alone. 31
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} In the aftermath of the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, the Kings took the opportunity to viciously force all NCR citizens out of Freeside. 32
Neutral 50 Travelers from the Republic quickly learned to avoid Freeside if they valued their safety. 33
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} Impressed with the Kings' continued attacks upon NCR citizens and soldiers, the Legion offered them the option of being assimilated into the Legion. 34
Neutral 50 The Kings refused, and briefly became slaves in the Legion, but after failed escape attempt, they were all put to death. 35
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} As the NCR moved to secure the region, the occupation of Freeside proved especially problematic. 36
Neutral 50 Things remained tense due to numerous incidents, though the Kings were still in nominal control of the area. 37
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} Flush with his victory, Mr. House sent Securitrons into Freeside, thinking to increase his control over the area. 38
Neutral 50 When fighting broke out, the Kings fought valiantly, but were no match for the armored killing machines, and were wiped out to the last man. 39
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} The Kings retained their control of Freeside, and while they continued to favor the needs of locals, they tolerated the citizens of the defeated NCR. 40
VEndingKings Neutral 50 {Narrating} After their victory at Hoover Dam, Legion troops rolled through Freeside. 41
Neutral 50 The Kings tried to fight back, but most were killed, and the rest fled into the wasteland. 42
VFSKingHsuOfferStart VFSKingHsuOfferStart Neutral 50 Let me guess. The NCR couldn't get me to dance to their tune so now they're asking again a little less nicely, right? 43
VFSKingSendsPlayerAfterPacer VFSKingSendsPlayerAfterPacer Neutral 50 I want you to back him up. See this through, and there'll be something good waiting for you when you get back. 44
VFSKingSendsPlayerToNegotiate VFSKingSendsPlayerToNegotiate Neutral 50 What is that fool doing? I need you to head out there and try to defuse the situation. Tell them I'm willing to cooperate. 45
VFSKingUltimatumStart VFSKingUltimatumStart Neutral 50 Let me guess. The NCR couldn't get me to dance to their tune so now they're asking again a little less nicely, right? 46
VFreeformFreesideFSTheKingTopic000 50 caps. Neutral 50 That's Pace for you. He means well, but he doesn't like strangers. Here, to make amends. 47
50 caps. Neutral 50 Now, what can I do for you? 48
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic000 500 caps. Neutral 50 You're kidding me, right? No, from the look in your eye I can tell you're not kidding. Wow, you should really be more careful with your money. 49
Neutral 50 Here, this should cover it. So there's no hard feelings. 50
500 caps. Neutral 50 Now, I'm guessing you really wanted to talk business if you were willing to drop that much cash to see me. 51
Neutral 50 Now, what can I do for you? 52
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic001 It's not worth mentioning. Neutral 50 You're modest. I respect that. So what can I do for you? 53
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic002 Nothing, I talked my way in. Neutral 50 Pace must be losing his touch. Either that or you're a smooth one. So what can I do for you? 54
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic003 I'm looking for a way into the Strip. Neutral 50 I might just be able to help you with that. But it's not something I do easily, or often. You'd have to earn it. You willing to do that? 55
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic006 Sure. What do I have to do? Neutral 50 I'll start you off with something easy. Did you notice the bodyguards for hire near the gates when you entered Freeside? 56
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic007 Not really. I guess I'll go find another way. Neutral 50 Then I wish you luck. But know that there are only two ways in there, me or those robots. Good luck working things out with the tin cans. 57
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic008 Yes. Neutral 50 It's good money if you can stay alive long enough. Freeside's not as safe as it used to be, so the money is well earned. 58
Neutral 50 Usually well earned, that is. Recently my men tell me that one of those bodyguards, fella named Orris, is making a little too much money. 59
Neutral 50 He's making a killing in repeat business. Once someone hires him they never want anyone else. I want you to find out why. 60
Neutral 50 Specifically, I want you to hire him. Play the part of an innocent tourist and follow his lead. 61
Neutral 50 If nothing happens, so be it. But I'm guessing things won't go so smoothly. Call it a hunch. So what do you say? 62
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic009 Sure, I've got one waiting outside for me. Neutral 50 It's good money if you can stay alive long enough. Freeside's not as safe as it used to be, so the money is well earned. 63
Neutral 50 Usually well earned, that is. Recently my men tell me that one of those bodyguards is getting a suspiciously large amount of business. 64
Neutral 50 The man's name is Orris, and everyone who hires him specifically requests him when they return. I want you to find out why. 65
Neutral 50 Specifically, I want you to hire him. He's usually covering the northern gate. Then I want you to head for the southern gate. 66
Neutral 50 If nothing happens, so be it. But I'm guessing things won't go so smoothly. Call it a hunch. So what do you say? 67
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic011 Sure. Neutral 50 Okay, then. Once you part ways, return here. I'll look forward to hearing your report. Oh, and take this to cover the hiring cost. 68
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic012 Why are you so interested in this? Neutral 50 You may have noticed that some of those guards out there are Kings, too. I'm just looking out for my men. 69
Neutral 50 I'm not trying to get some kind of unfair advantage. I just want a level playing field for my boys. So what do you say? 70
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic013 Why can't your men look into this? Neutral 50 I've tried, but he can smell a King a mile away. Probably knows all our faces by now. He's not a stupid man, I'll give him that. 71
Neutral 50 What I need is someone he won't recognize, which makes you perfect. 72
Neutral 50 So are you going to take the job or what? 73
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic014 I have better things to do. Neutral 50 That's too bad. We could have helped each other out. If you change your mind, stop back. The job might still be waiting for you. 74
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic015 Orris is a fraud. He fakes attacks on his clients and then plays hero. Neutral 50 So that's how it happens... Okay, then. I'll have some guys pull him off the street when no one's looking. 75
Neutral 50 You've shown me something, so maybe you can help me with a matter that's a little more important. 76
Orris is a fraud. He fakes attacks on his clients and then plays hero. Neutral 50 A lot of folks round these parts who've been here a while resent the sheer number of people that have come into the area since the Strip was built. 77
Neutral 50 In turn the newcomers, most of whom come from the NCR, have gotten ornery from being resented. Sometimes things get violent. 78
Neutral 50 This is one of those occasions. Recently, a few friends of mine were attacked, and I want you to find out who did it. 79
Neutral 50 Word's come that they just woke up over at the Old Mormon Fort just north of here. Head on over and see if they remember anything. 80
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic016 Not much. He seemed legit to me. Neutral 50 Oh he did, did he? Well that just ain't good enough. Get back out there and hire him again. Hire him a hundred times if that's what it takes. 81
Neutral 50 And before you ask, I'm not gonna cover the cost this time. It's bad enough I'm giving the man *more* business. 82
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic017 Orris shouldn't be a problem any longer. Neutral 50 Ah, so it went down like that, huh? I guess it can't be helped now. 83
Neutral 50 You're not subtle, but you get the job done. That's good enough for me. Maybe you can help me with something more important. 84
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic018 About that favor you owe me... Neutral 50 Ask away. 85
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic019 I need you to stop the violence against NCR citizens in Freeside. Neutral 50 So I'm supposed to just start giving in to the demands of random strangers that come in here, huh? I don't think so. 86
Neutral 50 You want something from me, you're gonna have to earn it. And it just so happens that I've got a few things I need taken care of. So what do you say? 87
I need you to stop the violence against NCR citizens in Freeside. Neutral 50 I'd love to help you, but it seems I can't even prevent my own friends from getting killed. I'm sorry as can be, but I can't help you. 88
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic020 The NCR is distributing supplies in a building down by the old train station. Neutral 50 Handing out supplies? Like food and stuff? That ain't nothing to get ruffled over. You find anything else? 89
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic021 Where did you get the robot dog? Neutral 50 I got Rex here from a salvager a few years ago. He was a little dinged up when I got him, but one of the Followers fixed him right up. 90
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic022 Is there something wrong with him? Neutral 50 He's been acting peculiar for some time now. I took him to the Followers and had him checked out, and they said his brain is bad or something. 91
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic023 He doesn't seem very happy. Neutral 50 He goes through spells like this from time to time. The Followers said his brain is going bad or something. 92
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic024 Let's talk about something else. Neutral 50 Sure, what's on your mind? 93
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic025 What can you tell me about Freeside? Neutral 50 To understand Freeside, you have to look back a few years. Originally, we were all just tribes making a living in this area. 94
Neutral 50 That all changed when Mr. House came around. He made an offer to the three biggest tribes that were willing to listen to him. 95
Neutral 50 Today, everyone calls those tribes the Three Families, and they live in luxury and run their own casinos in the Strip. 96
Neutral 50 The rest of us were left to fight over the crumbs, living in the shadow of those more fortunate. Things got pretty nasty for a while. 97
Neutral 50 But we wanted more. A place of our own. A place where no one could tell us what to do. And we didn't want to go elsewhere to find it. 98
Neutral 50 So we took control of this place, and made it our own. And that's really all Freeside is, the best of a bad situation. 99
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic027 Tell me about the Kings. Neutral 50 We're different than other gangs, and not just because we dress better. We're not just a group of thugs looking for our next fight. 100
Neutral 50 The Kings are about an idea, you see? Where every man is free to follow his own path, do his own thing. Where every man is a king in his own right. 101
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic028 I have other things to do. Neutral 50 That's all right. My friends got beat so bad they'll be recuperating for quite some time, so head over there when you can. 102
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic029 Do you always charge people to come talk to you? Neutral 50 Charge? Ha ha. Pace must be at it again. What did he take you for? 103
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic030 This building is... interesting. What do you know about it? Neutral 50 Near as I can tell, it was some sort of religious institution. 104
Neutral 50 Oh, I know it says "school" out front, but everything in here seems to be related to the worship of some guy from back in the day. 105
Neutral 50 People used to come here to learn about him, to dress like him, move like him. To {stressed} be him. If that's not worship, I don't know what is. 106
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic031 Can they do anything? Neutral 50 No, they said they don't have the tools to help him. 107
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic032 Is he going to be okay? Neutral 50 For now, but they said eventually he's going to get worse. I don't know what to do. 108
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic033 Can I help somehow? Neutral 50 I don't know. Maybe. If you found a way to help my poor Rex here, I'd be much obliged. 109
Neutral 50 Your best bet would be to talk to Julie Farkas over at the Old Mormon Fort north of here. Maybe you'll have better luck than I did. 110
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic034 Absolutely. I'll see that he gets better. Neutral 50 I can't thank you enough. Now, there's a few things you should know about ol' Rex here if you're going to be traveling together. 111
Neutral 50 First, he hates rats. Can't stand the things. Giant rats, molerats, doesn't matter. He catches a whiff of one and he's off like a shot after them. 112
Neutral 50 He's normally pretty obedient, but you might have to chase him some if he goes after one of the little varmints. 113
Neutral 50 Second, he doesn't like hats, or the people wearing them. Don't ask. I have no idea why. Maybe because it rhymes with "rats". 114
Neutral 50 That should be it, though. Other than the occasional bad spot when his brain starts hurting him, that is, but I'm hoping you'll see to that. 115
Neutral 50 I wish you both luck. Take care of my Rex now, y'hear? 116
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic035 I'll pass. Neutral 50 I completely understand. No reason you should take on someone else's problems. Let me know if you change your mind, though. 117
Neutral 50 Now, was there anything else you wanted to talk about? 118
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic036 About Rex here... Neutral 50 What about him? 119
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic037 Let's talk about something else. Neutral 50 Like what? 120
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic038 I think I already killed him... Neutral 50 So it went down like that, huh? I guess it can't be helped now. 121
Neutral 50 Even though you lack subtlety, you've shown me you can get the job done, so maybe you can help me with something more important. 122
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic039 I was hoping you might have some work for me. Neutral 50 Maybe so. Maybe so. You look like you might be able to handle yourself. Tell you what. 123
Neutral 50 You do me a favor, and I'll have some more work for you when it's done. Sound good? 124
I was hoping you might have some work for me. Neutral 50 I did have something, but some friends of mine got whacked and now I got nothing for ya. Sorry about that. 125
I was hoping you might have some work for me. Neutral 50 I did have something, but a close friend of mine got whacked and now I got nothing for ya. Sorry about that. 126
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic041 Orris left town after I had a little talk with him. Neutral 50 Convinced him, huh? I could use more men with your powers of persuasion. 127
Neutral 50 You've shown me you can get the job done, so maybe you can help me with something more important. 128
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic042 Will it be dangerous? I like dangerous. Neutral 50 In that case, some of the things I need handled will be right up your alley. 129
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic045 I'm a little busy right now. Neutral 50 I beg your pardon, then. I'll let you get about your business. 130
{Learned about Doc Henry and tell the King}
Julie Farkas said a man in Jacobstown can treat Rex. Neutral 50 She said what? Why didn't she just say so when I was there? Actually, come to think of it, I was pretty angry when I went down there. 131
Happy 50 I vaguely recall something about upending a few tables, maybe knocking out one of her doctors. Anyway, that's incredible news! 132
Sad 50 Only thing is, there's too much going on around here for me to make a trip like that, and I need all of my guys just to keep things settled here. 133
Neutral 50 You seem to be awfully interested in my boy Rex here. And you've done some good work for me already. I'll tell you what. 134
Neutral 50 You promise to get Rexie here to that doctor, and I'll lend him to you. What do you say? 135
About Rex... Neutral 50 Yes? Did you reconsider? 136
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic047 I'm afraid so. Neutral 50 Then I must refuse. The people here have the right to do what they want and are beholden to none. I won't take that away from them. 137
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic048 The violence needs to stop. Neutral 50 And whose job is it to stop it? Yours? Mine? Who are we to tell people what to do? No man has that right. 138
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic049 There's still time to solve this peacefully. Neutral 50 Says the one with a squad of armed soldiers behind them. No, I don't think a peaceful solution is possible. Not anymore. 139
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic050 These men have orders to kill you all if you refuse. Are you sure? Neutral 50 That I don't want to sign away my freedom and that of all the people I'm responsible for at gunpoint? Yeah, I'm sure. 140
{Speech check >= 80}
And when you're dead? What will happen to their freedom then? Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] Honestly, I hadn't thought it through that far. I'd guess someone would come and take over this place. 141
Neutral 50 And you can be damn sure they won't run it like the King, baby. They might run everyone out, or enslave them, or worse. 142
Neutral 50 I guess I have no choice. Tell your NCR masters that I accept their terms. I'll see that violence against their people is dealt with. 143
Neutral 50 Now take these fools and get out of here before they start a riot. 144
The NCR is far too powerful. Just give up. Neutral 50 [FAILED] My momma didn't raise no quitter, and I stand by my beliefs. The answer is no. 145
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic052 The NCR is just trying to protect its people. Neutral 50 And I'm trying to protect mine. If the NCR wants peace so much, the first step would be to get these soldiers out of here. 146
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic053 Actually, they want to make you an offer. Neutral 50 An offer, huh? All right, let's hear it. 147
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic054 You've got them all wrong. Neutral 50 Wrong, huh? And I suppose they sent all of these soldiers just to make nice. Lucky me. 148
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic055 What if they are? Neutral 50 Then I'm afraid we're going to have ourselves a tussle. Now say what you came to say or get out. 149
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic056 Freeside gets more food, water, and electricity. Neutral 50 That doesn't sound half bad... what's the catch? 150
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic060 The Kings have to stop the violence against people from the NCR. Neutral 50 Hmmm, people around here *would* be a lot less ornery if there were more supplies to go around. It'd be rough at first, but I think we could manage. 151
Neutral 50 Tell you what. I'll agree to those terms. But the Kings won't lift a finger until we see the first of those supplies. 152
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic063 No catch. You just make sure no King attack an NCR citizen from now on. Neutral 50 That's not so bad. I might have to make an example of a few of the more hotheaded guys, but otherwise, that sounds fair. 153
Neutral 50 Tell you what. I'll agree to those terms. But the Kings won't lift a finger until we see the first of those supplies. 154
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic065 So why isn't every man in Freeside in your gang? Neutral 50 We've tried to pass our philosophy on to the people of Freeside, but not everyone is ready to be a King. 155
Neutral 50 The kids love us, but the old-timers tend to shy away and keep to themselves. They probably couldn't pull off the look, anyway. 156
Neutral 50 As for the others, some people just plain don't respect others, and that's a no-no. If there's one thing I won't tolerate, it's lack of respect. 157
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic066 I want to join the Kings. Neutral 50 Normally, we don't let outsiders join, but I think I can make an exception in your case. I'll have one of the guys spread the word. 158
Neutral 50 From this day forward, you're one of us, and no one in Freeside will mess with you if they know what's good for them. 159
Neutral 50 In addition, if you want to do something about that hair of yours, talk to Sergio. I'll let him know you're coming. 160
Neutral 50 Perhaps more importantly, you've earned the right to wear something a little more stylish. Here, wear it proudly. 161
I want to join the Kings. Neutral 50 Normally, we don't let outsiders join, and you'd be the first female King ever, but I think I can make an exception in your case. 162
Neutral 50 From this day forward, you're one of us, and no one in Freeside will mess with you if they know what's good for them. 163
Neutral 50 In addition, if you want to do something about that hair of yours, talk to Sergio. I'll let him know you're coming. 164
Neutral 50 Perhaps more importantly, you've earned the right to wear something a little more stylish. Here, wear it proudly. 165
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic067 Can you get me into the Strip? Neutral 50 Sure can. I have a friend who has just what you're looking for, has a shop over yonder by the east gate, named Mick & Ralph's. 166
Neutral 50 Just tell Ralph that I sent you and he'll get you squared away. 167
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic068 I could really use some money... Neutral 50 Caps are a little tight these days, but with our guards making more and those supplies comin' in I reckon I can spare some. 168
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic069 I'd like to think about it. Neutral 50 That's a good idea. I don't give out favors everyday, so you probably shouldn't rush to pick something. 169
Neutral 50 Tumble it around in your mind and come back when you know what you want. I'll be here. 170
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic070 Tell me more about him. Neutral 50 Not a whole lot to tell. There were only a few books left in here when we found it, and those were rotted away. 171
Neutral 50 There were some posters left that were pretty well preserved, which is how we know all this stuff was based on the same guy. 172
Neutral 50 The thing of it is, we don't even know what his name was. All the posters just referred to him as "The King". 173
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic071 I wanted to talk about something else. Neutral 50 Fine by me, just remember I owe you one. Now what did you want to talk about? 174
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic072 I need you to stop the violence against NCR citizens in Freeside. Neutral 50 Whoa... that's a doozy. Truth be told, I don't even know if I can pull something like that off. 175
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic073 All I'm asking is that you try. Neutral 50 I'll give it my best. You've earned that much. But this makes us even, you hear? 176
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic074 The Kings will follow your leadership. Neutral 50 Damn straight they will. It's some of the other locals that I'm worried about. 177
Neutral 50 On second thought, if I can whip this band of hooligans into obedience, a stray tough guy or two shouldn't be a problem. 178
Neutral 50 Okay, you've got a deal. No more violence against the NCR on my watch. But this makes us even, you hear? 179
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic075 Well, if you can't do it... Neutral 50 Hold on now, I didn't say I couldn't do it, just that I couldn't guarantee it, and even that's probably stretching the truth a little. 180
Neutral 50 Just leave everything to me. I'll see that the violence stops. But this makes us even, you hear? 181
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic076 I need you to stop the violence against NCR citizens. Neutral 50 Is that so? That's a mighty tall order for someone I barely know. Now, if you were to help me out some, that might change my mind. 182
Neutral 50 Can I help you with anything else? 183
I need you to stop the violence against NCR citizens. Neutral 50 I'd like to help you out, especially considering all you've done, but that's a pretty big favor you're asking for, and you've already used yours. 184
Neutral 50 Was there anything else you wanted? 185
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic077 Can I join the Kings? Neutral 50 Whoa, there. Not just anyone can be a King. First of all, we usually only accept people native to the area. 186
Neutral 50 Second, I have to approve. And I don't. You haven't shown me you've got what it takes to be a King yet. 187
Neutral 50 But if you're fixin' to join something fierce, stick around, and if you play your cards right, things might change. 188
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic078 I'll head over right away. Neutral 50 Good. I like that enthusiasm. Return when you have some information we can use. 189
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic079 I'll look into it when I can. Neutral 50 Good. Return here when you've found something. 190
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic080 The Local men were attacked by soldiers. One of the men was identified by rank. Neutral 50 Bunch of soldier boys, huh? They usually don't come around these parts since their big base is on the other side of the Strip. 191
Neutral 50 If they're comin' over here now, it's got to be for a reason. I didn't want to believe the rumors that they're looking to take over Vegas, but now... 192
Neutral 50 If something big is going down, I'm sure rumors of it will have spread. Ask around, particularly in the squatter areas where the NCR folk hang. 193
Neutral 50 You might also mosey on over to the Mormon Fort and chat Julie Farkas up. The Followers tend to be in the know about these things. 194
Neutral 50 Just don't ask her what to do about it. She'll probably ask you to hug someone or somethin'. 195
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic081 If this was a school, what was taught here? Neutral 50 As far as we can tell, the guy that built this place was considered the coolest of the cool, and taught other people how to be more like him. 196
Neutral 50 People would come from all around to learn how to sing, dance, dress, and even speak the way he did. 197
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic083 I'm still looking into the matter. Neutral 50 Then there's no sense in us talkin' about it. 198
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic084 I wanted to ask you some questions. Neutral 50 Go ahead. Throw some questions at me. 199
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic085 They refuse to serve Locals. Neutral 50 Ah, that would explain the goons. They're here to keep people like my friends away from the food. That ain't something I support. No sir. 200
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic086 I still haven't found anything. Neutral 50 Keep at it. Those boys are here for a reason. 201
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic087 Can I ask you a few questions? Neutral 50 Sure can. What did you want to know? 202
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic088 It seemed fairly innocent. Neutral 50 Nothing's innocent in Freeside. You should know that by now. 203
Neutral 50 No, I'm guessing they're doing something they know will cause a row, like keep the food all to themselves. 204
Neutral 50 Ah, that would explain the goons. They're here to keep people like my friends away from the food. That ain't something I support. No sir. 205
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic090 Let's talk about something else. Neutral 50 Sure thing. What'd you have in mind? 206
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic091 And that's where you got the name from. Neutral 50 Well, that and the giant sign outside. This place could have been "The King's House of Dog Chow" and I still would have taken the name. 207
Neutral 50 But I like to think I keep the memory alive. 208
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic092 Is that what you guys do, pretend to be this guy? Neutral 50 Somethin' like that, yeah. There were some working tapes here when we first got here, so we know what he sounded like. 209
Neutral 50 Sadly, they stopped working a few years back, so I sold them to a junk merchant who was passing through, otherwise I'd play some for you. 210
Neutral 50 All the outfits you see my guy wearing around were originally found in here, too. Along with more hair gel than you can shake a stick at. 211
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic094 What are you going to do? Neutral 50 I'm gonna see that those supplies are distributed a little m{ore} - what the hell? 212
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic095 They said someone was sent to discuss the issue with you. Neutral 50 Wait a minute, wait a minute. They said what? 213
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic096 Let's not act rashly here. Neutral 50 Don't worry, I'm not gonna do anything uncalled for. 214
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic097 They said the man was severely beaten and barely survived. Neutral 50 Huh, that would explain why they're all riled at us. Seems like we have a big misunderst{anding} - what the hell? 215
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic099 What can you tell me about Pacer? Neutral 50 Pace? He and I grew up together around here. We've been through a lot together, and there's no man I'd rather have at my side in a pinch. 216
Neutral 50 Don't judge him too harshly for trying to get some caps out of you. He probably took you for a squatter, looking for a place to settle down. 217
Neutral 50 There've been a lot of people moving into the area lately, and it's got some people riled. Can't blame 'em myself. There's only so much to go around. 218
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic100 Who are the important people in Freeside? Neutral 50 There's me, but I don't really like talking about myself. There's Julie Farkas and the other Followers down at the ol' Mormon Fort. 219
Neutral 50 The Garret Twins up at the Wrangler deserve mention. Wouldn't be right not mentioning the Van Graffs, I suppose. 220
Neutral 50 And while they're not important in the overall scheme of things, there's Mick and Ralph, too. Just don't tell them I said that. {The last sentence is spoken slightly lower, in a conspiratorial tone.} 221
Neutral 50 Who all did you want to know about? 222
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic101 Tell me about Julie Farkas. Neutral 50 Julie represents the Followers of the Apocalypse. They're a group that tries to help people out whenever they can, so we get along just fine. 223
Neutral 50 If you ever need to get patched up, one of their docs'll have you right as rain in no time flat. They sell supplies, too. Or used to. 224
Neutral 50 Heard they were having trouble bringing stuff in, or keeping up with the demand, or something, lately. 225
Neutral 50 Did you want to know about anyone else? 226
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic102 I'd like to hear about the Garret Twins. Neutral 50 Them twins run the Atomic Wrangler, the only working casino here in Freeside. It's become pretty much {thee} the place to go around these parts. 227
Neutral 50 Give it a whirl when you've got some time. Now, was there anyone else you wanted to know about? 228
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic103 Who are the Van Graffs? Neutral 50 They're a family-run business from out west that deal in weapons mostly. A word of caution, though. They're not a friendly bunch. Not at all. 229
Neutral 50 Their store is just past the Wrangler, and sells all kinds of fancy weapons that most people around here can't afford. 230
Neutral 50 Anyone else you wanted to know about? 231
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic104 What's the skinny on Mick and Ralph? Neutral 50 Mick and Ralph sell all sorts of things at a small store over by the east gate. They've done all right by us, and they'll do all right by you. 232
Neutral 50 You want to know about anyone else? 233
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic105 They were distributing supplies down by the old train station, but I dealt with them. Neutral 50 I'll send some guys to check out your story, but that's some good news for a change. 234
Neutral 50 Word will probably spread about this, and quickly. The NCR'll know not to come around these parts if they know what's good for 'em. 235
They were distributing supplies down by the old train station, but I dealt with them. Neutral 50 You've helped us plenty, so I'll tell you what. Just this once, name whatever you want, and if I can make it happen, it's done. 236
Neutral 50 Don't rush it, though. Toss it around in your head a little. You only get one favor from The King. 237
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic107 I hate to tell you this, but Rex is dead. Neutral 50 {Overwhelmed by emotion} That's... that's terrible. I hope the poor little guy gave as good as he got. {Sad, but proud} He always was a fighter. 238
Neutral 50 {Breaking down a little} Why I remember one time when he... {Tries to switch topics to cover} do you mind if we talk about something else? 239
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic109 You know, I really don't pay attention to him, so your guess is as good as mine. Neutral 50 I expect you to treat my Rexie with a little more care. I'm expecting him back now, you hear? 240
Neutral 50 Now, was there something you wanted to talk about? 241
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic110 He sure did. Neutral 50 You're a man of your word, no doubt about it. I can't thank you enough. 242
Neutral 50 If you want, hold onto Rex for a little while longer. I'm sure he'd enjoy that. Was there anything else you wanted? 243
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic111 I don't have to give him back just yet, do I? Neutral 50 No no, you can hold onto him for a little while longer, I think. You deserve that much at least, for what you've done. 244
Neutral 50 But aside from the good news about my Rex, was there something you wanted? 245
VFreeformFreesideVFSTheKingTopic112 Should I leave you two alone? Neutral 50 Naw, I'm just happy to see my pup back on his feet and happy. I can't thank you enough for this. 246
Neutral 50 Hopefully, he's been making himself useful as a way of paying you back. But where are my manners, did you need something? 247
VMS29KingOfferStart VMS29KingOfferStart Neutral 50 Okay, I need some answers, now. These guys just barged in here and said they were under orders to keep me here until you arrived. 248
Neutral 50 I'm about five seconds away from telling my men to take them down, so speak fast. 249
VMS29KingUltimatumStart VMS29KingUltimatumStart Neutral 50 Maybe you can tell me what the hell is going on here. These stony face bastards haven't said a word other than to say they're here under orders. 250
VMS29VFSTheKingTopic000 I'm here to deliver an ultimatum from the NCR. Cease hostilities against the NCR or perish. Neutral 50 An ultimatum? Do you even know who you're talking to? We're the Kings, and no King will ever accept an ultimatum. 251
Neutral 50 Go back to your general or commodore or whatever-the-fuck and tell them to shove their ultimatum where the sun don't shine. 252
VMS29VFSTheKingTopic001 The NCR wants you to curb the violence in Freeside. Or else. Neutral 50 You know, it's that "or else" part that gets stuck in my craw. It just sounds a little too much like you're trying to tell us what to do. 253
Neutral 50 And nobody tells the Kings what to do. So why don't you and all of your little friends get the hell out of here. Or else. 254
VMS29VFSTheKingTopic002 NCR citizens are dying in Freeside and the NCR wants you to stop it. Neutral 50 Well, Freeside citizens are also being attacked and I'd like you all to stop it, but I'm guessing that's not going to happen, is it? 255
Neutral 50 This little show of force accomplishes nothing. So take your toy soldiers and go home. Show's over. 256
VMS29VFSTheKingTopic003 I've been instructed to offer you more resources in exchange for your word that the violence stops. Neutral 50 That sounds fair. And all I have to do is try to tone down the attacks on the Squatters, you say? 257
VMS29VFSTheKingTopic004 I apologize for their rudeness. The NCR wants peace in Freeside, and offers additional supplies. Neutral 50 And I suppose they want me to help see that happen? That seems pretty reasonable. 258
VMS29VFSTheKingTopic005 Don't take that tone with me. These soldiers would wipe the floor with your men. Neutral 50 Sounds like a challenge. Boys, let's do this! 259


I have to go. Neutral 50 All right. I'll see you later. 260
