阿卡德·伊斯雷尔·甘农辐射:新维加斯可招募的同伴,2281年身為天启追随者成员,he researches the potential medicinal uses of naturally occurring compounds for the chapter that resides in Freeside's Old Mormon Fort.

背景编辑

阿卡德·甘农是一名英克雷軍官的儿子,生于2246年的內瓦羅,在英克雷油井毁灭後四年。他的父亲在他小时候,在撤离基地的战斗任务中被杀。長大後甘农和他的母亲非常亲近,以及英克雷残部,当他们从內瓦羅被NCR驱逐的时候,他们变成了甘农"实际的"家庭。他们在NCR有过短暂的和平生活。但是NCR和钢铁兄弟会始终没有打算放过这些无家可归的英克雷成员——他们不得不继续向东方逃亡,希望远离NCR和兄弟会的势力范围。 

当在莫哈维开始各自的新生活后,为了防止暴露行踪遭到追杀,他们很少联系,并且都是秘密进行的。甘农加入天啟追随者以找出他醫療技能的和平用途,并開始在自由城工作。尽管他一直希望能够彻底和过去说再见,但他依然无法抑制自己回想他和母亲、和“残存者”们那些共同经历点点滴滴,他希望自己有朝一日能够报答他们对自己和他母亲的恩情。他虽然是一名医生,但比起给人治病,他更喜欢做研究,因为他觉得自己“不善交际”。他的兴趣包括阅读关于失败的社会经济学理论的战前书籍,甘农的拉丁语非常好,雖然他很快向信使擔保,這不是從他討厭的凱撒軍團學來的。

风度翩翩的阿卡德有着聪明的头脑,敏捷的思维,以及可能自己都没有意识到的幽默感——他经常不自觉地用这种诡异的幽默感把问题歪曲到令别人无语的方向。However, a Courier with the Confirmed Bachelor perk can flirt with him to discover that he's homosexual.[1]

他与天启追随者一样有些理想主义,但他与他的同事相比,也是一个比较现实的人,比如:他相信在这个后核战的世界里,人们无故被杀是正常的事情。 对于在更广阔的范围内影响社会,他有着根深蒂固的渴望,但他也深知当理想比个人的现实需求更重要时会发生什么。这种复杂的心理使他在践行天启追随者的信条,帮助周围的人们变得更加自立时采取一种注重均衡的做法。尽管在某种程度上他也认为NCR在做着类似的事情,但他依然坚信NCR的“清洗”和英克雷当年的法西斯做派一样,都只会给人们带来痛苦。

尽管与天启追随者们一起致力于造福有需要的人们,他依然为自己走的这条路感到彷徨——他不知道这是否正是父亲当年为之自豪的那条路。

社交關係编辑

基于对NCR迫害的恐惧,他极力隐藏起他的过去,当他发现生命里已经有太多男人的时候,他說道 "lovers make poor confidantes."。对他来说,那些残存者们就是唯一的亲人,但随着时间的流逝,他们之间也逐渐变得陌生。但在他的母亲死去以后,黛茜·惠特曼是他生命中唯一的女性。对她来说,阿卡德就像她从未有过的儿子。

招募為夥伴编辑

There are several ways for the Courier to recruit Arcade. In each case, assuming the requirements are met, they just need to talk to him, exploring the dialogue options until some variant of "Why don't you come with me?" shows up. He will agree if any of the following are true:

  • 和追随者关系良好。
  • The Courier has successfully completed High Times and given Julie Farkas the needed medical supplies.
    • Note that for this approach, 需要先和阿卡德对话问他是否想要一些帮助,之后在阿卡德感謝信使對追隨者的幫忙後,会获得一个选项去询问他是否愿意加入你。
  • 通过了一个难度为75的口才检测。
  • Confirmed Bachelor专长
  • 甘农也会出于对玩家超低的智力属性的怜悯而加入為夥伴。Temporary Intelligence-reduction effects can be useful in this situation, for the Courier who cannot pass any of the other checks.
  • 布恩一樣,如果玩家和军团关系良好,阿卡德会拒绝加入。The Courier can wear NCR faction armor, and talk to him again. It will temporarily bypass the faction check, and allow him to join them.

任務编辑

Making him quit编辑

Arcade will get fed up with the Courier if they do or say things that he dislikes. He has an internal counter of "dislike" points that is increased by doing or saying stupid or mean things or doing things that hurt the Followers. Once he has accumulated 3 "dislike" points, he will warn the Courier that they are "acting crazy." Most of these possible "dislike" points may be obtained during The White Wash quest. At 6 points, he will leave permanently. He also tracks "like" points, but those are only used to decide if he will start the For Auld Lang Syne quest early or not.

The "dislike" points are triggered by the following statements or actions:

  • Relating to The White Wash quest:
    • 1 point for saying "Right. The Followers don't endorse his actions, and all that." when Arcade comments on Anderson, when visiting Westside after already having completed The White Wash without Arcade.
    • 1 point for saying "They profit from crime, now I profit, too." when Arcade chastises the Courier, if they finished the quest by extorting money from the Westside Co-op.
    • 2 points for saying "Anderson killed White. He deserved to pay for what he did." when Arcade challenges the Courier, if they finished the quest by killing Anderson.
    • 1 point for saying "What's done is done." when Arcade challenges the Courier, if they finished the quest by killing Anderson.
    • 1 point for saying "You're assuming a motive without evidence. Please be rational." (which requires Intelligence 7), followed by "It was either this or spend the rest of his life in an NCR chain gang." when Arcade challenges the Courier, if they finished the quest by killing Anderson.
  • During the first visit to The Fort with Arcade along:
    • 2 points for saying "With how messed up New Vegas is, do you really think Caesar has nothing to offer?" followed by "Yes, that's exactly what I'm suggesting." when Arcade asks why they are there.
  • After speaking to Hildern (any conversation that ends with "Yes...Goodbye" or "Wrong turn?...") with Arcade (one time) he will talk about Hildern's motives.
    • 1 point for saying "But in the end, doesn't it all just come down to numbers anyway?"
  • 1 point for murdering non-hostile innocents. (Dislike is not raised until Arcade comments negatively.)

Arcade will leave immediately and permanently if any of the following happens:

  • The Courier responds to one of his challenges with some variation of "If you don't like it, leave."
  • They enter the Legate's Camp in preparation to help Caesar attack Hoover Dam.
  • Convincing the remnants to support Caesar's Legion during the For Auld Lang Syne quest.
  • 激活阿基米德I型。(輸送電力給阿基米德II型倒是不影響。)
  • Reporting back to Caesar after assassinating Kimball. He will leave regardless of the Courier's preparation to move on to the final mission. He will stay as long as the quest is unfinished.

物品清單编辑

* Only worn if fighting at Hoover Dam.
** Because Arcade's Plasma Defender uses magical companion ammo instead of energy cells, it does not have the -2 DT effect that comes from using standard energy ammunition. Otherwise, the weapon has the same statistics as the standard version.

註釋编辑

  • 如果你穿着军团势力的装甲他不会理睬你。 
  • 阿卡德的智力是所有队友中最高的,为10,他的魅力也是所有队友中最高的,为6。
  • 阿卡德个子明显比其他NPC高,包括信使
  • When asked about which faction to send ED-E to near the end of ED-E My Love, he will urge the Courier to give it to the Followers.
  • 雖然阿卡德的医学知识可以用在Bitter Springs Infirmary Blues任务,这样玩家就不必收集相应的书籍,但在Restoring HopeVolare!这两个任务中,阿卡德帮不上什么忙。
  • 阿卡德可以说流利的拉丁语,同时他坚决与軍團划清界限,称他的拉丁语都是自己通过战前书籍、乐谱、以及全息磁带学的。As such, he laments the fact that Latin is now associated with the Legion.
  • If questioned about the Legion's use of Latin, Arcade will respond that "Caesar can cite Cato to suit his purposes." This is a paraphrase of the line "The devil can cite scripture for his purposes," from "The Merchant of Venice" by William Shakespeare.
  • As a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse, Arcade is recognized all over the wasteland. When traveling with Arcade:
    • The citizens of Freeside will often say "Howdy, Arcade." and will sometimes state that they are surprised to see that he is outside the fort, as they thought that "those scientist types liked to stay indoors."
    • Members of Caesar's Legion will express their disbelief that a Follower had the courage to step out of Freeside.
    • Powder Gangers and escaped convicts will speak of him in a derogatory manner, calling Arcade "four eyes."
    • The workers at Boulder City will berate the Courier for keeping company with "anarchist cultists" instead of "civilized persons."
    • Great Khans will say "I haven't seen a Follower around here in years."
    • The Kings gang members will comment "I see you've hired a Follower doctor. Smart move, with Freeside being what it is."
  • Arcade's worst ending directly mimicks the suicide of Cato when Julius Caesar became ruler of Ancient Rome; Cato slipped over while attempting to stab himself, and was forced to disembowel himself to succeed in what he sought; Caesar was unhappy at his death.
  • 如果你的队伍里有Rex和ED-E,一些有趣的对话可以招募阿卡德时被触发。
  • 当玩家问起阿卡德·的研究成果时,他会说用莫哈维附近的药材很难做出治疗针,而实际情况是只需布洛克花、山達根以及空注射器就行了。
  • 如果信使在Beyond the Beef中提议用阿卡德代替Ted被吃,那么Mortimer会对其身高和下巴做出评论。
  • Although Frumentarii are supposed to be spies and experts at infiltration, Arcade still recognizes Vulpes Inculta if Arcade is a companion when exiting the Tops casino for the first time, commenting that Vulpes is the Legion's "most notorious" spy.
  • 带阿卡德到特定他会發表一些评论:
    • In the Silver Rush, he engages the Courier in a conversation, stating how the numerous energy weapons brings back memories.
    • In Westside, Arcade mentions he used to visit the area with Tom Anderson and comments their issue in receiving water.
    • Taking him to the Crashed Vertibird location makes him remark that is has been a while since he last seen one.
    • In HELIOS One (and after listening to Fantastic), he will urge the Courier to divert power to Freeside and outer Vegas on the belief that the NCR already has power from Hoover Dam and Mr. House has resources unlike the unfortunate citizens of Freeside.
    • Taking him to The Fort will make Arcade question the Courier's motives. If he is still a companion and after interacting with Caesar, Arcade will angrily denounce Caesar as a "crazy tyrant."
  • Unlike some of the other companions who are associated with their respective faction, having a negative reputation with the Followers of the Apocalypse does not affect the ability to recruit Arcade.

Notable quotes编辑

Template:Notable content

登場编辑

阿卡德·甘农只出现在辐射:新维加斯,不过曾准备出现在范布伦中,这是被黑岛取消的Fallout 3。

幕後编辑

Arcade's conflict is about his identity. He is torn between a sense of loyalty and tradition to his father and adoptive family and a desire to be independent, self-made. He feels caught between generations and cultures and isn't sure who he should be or how, if at all, to use the "legacy" (material and otherwise) left to him by his father.

Arcade's endings are intended to reflect that no one is damaged more by reality than the idealist. He does his best to be practical and rational, but there is a strong idealist streak in him/the Followers in general. In some of Arcade's "best" endings (meaning, the circumstances he thought he wanted), he is still somewhat disappointed by how things turned out. In his "worst" endings, he can wind up bitterly disillusioned, brutally murdered, crucified, casually executed and discarded in a ditch, or even defiantly suicidal.

Arguably the worst ending is the one in which Arcade is given to Caesar as an enslaved doctor. The existence is so unbearable to him that he does what the historical Cato the Younger did at Utica: rather than give Caesar satisfaction, he disembowels himself. Like Cato, Arcade cannot live in a world where everything he tried to resist has come to pass.

J.E. Sawyer on Formspring

Arcade Gannon was one of several player characters J.E. Sawyer used while playing the Fallout tabletop RPG. As a character, he is also inspired by Sawyer's idealism.[2]

  • When brought to The Fort, Arcade will get upset with the Courier and ask "What's going on? Am I playing Vergil to your Dante?" This is a reference to Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy.
Gametitle-VB以下内容基於范布倫計劃,因而不應完全作正史内容看待。
范布伦中的甘农是一个位於美國中西部聯邦的前英克雷步兵。某种意义上说,在胡佛大坝里他抛弃了英克雷而加入了天启追随者。在Burham Springs,他可以识别打在AGRICOLA实验室上的海神能源公司标志。
