你去自由之城隨便拉一個癮君子,他們講的自己的過往比我的絕對還要有料。
阿卡德·伊斯雷爾·甘農輻射:新維加斯可招募的同伴,2281年身為天啟追隨者成員,he researches the potential medicinal uses of naturally occurring compounds for the chapter that resides in Freeside's Old Mormon Fort.

背景編輯

阿卡德·甘農是一名英克雷軍官的兒子,生於2246年的內瓦羅,在英克雷油井毀滅後四年。他的父親在他小時候,在撤離基地的戰鬥任務中被殺。長大後甘農和他的母親非常親近,以及英克雷殘部,當他們從內瓦羅被NCR驅逐的時候,他們變成了甘農"實際的"家庭。他們在NCR有過短暫的和平生活。但是NCR和鋼鐵兄弟會始終沒有打算放過這些無家可歸的英克雷成員——他們不得不繼續向東方逃亡,希望遠離NCR和兄弟會的勢力範圍。 

當在莫哈維開始各自的新生活後,為了防止暴露行蹤遭到追殺,他們很少聯繫,並且都是秘密進行的。甘農加入天啟追隨者以找出他醫療技能的和平用途,並開始在自由城工作。儘管他一直希望能夠徹底和過去說再見,但他依然無法抑制自己回想他和母親、和“殘存者”們那些共同經歷點點滴滴,他希望自己有朝一日能夠報答他們對自己和他母親的恩情。他雖然是一名醫生,但比起給人治病,他更喜歡做研究,因為他覺得自己“不善交際”。他的興趣包括閱讀關於失敗的社會經濟學理論的戰前書籍,甘農的拉丁語非常好,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。

風度翩翩的阿卡德有着聰明的頭腦,敏捷的思維,以及可能自己都沒有意識到的幽默感——他經常不自覺地用這種詭異的幽默感把問題歪曲到令別人無語的方向。However, a Courier with the Confirmed Bachelor perk can flirt with him to discover that he's homosexual.[1]

他與天啟追隨者一樣有些理想主義,但他與他的同事相比,也是一個比較現實的人,比如:他相信在這個後核戰的世界裡,人們無故被殺是正常的事情。 對於在更廣闊的範圍內影響社會,他有着根深蒂固的渴望,但他也深知當理想比個人的現實需求更重要時會發生什麼。這種複雜的心理使他在踐行天啟追隨者的信條,幫助周圍的人們變得更加自立時採取一種注重均衡的做法。儘管在某種程度上他也認為NCR在做着類似的事情,但他依然堅信NCR的“清洗”和英克雷當年的法西斯做派一樣,都只會給人們帶來痛苦。

儘管與天啟追隨者們一起致力於造福有需要的人們,他依然為自己走的這條路感到彷徨——他不知道這是否正是父親當年為之自豪的那條路。

社交關係編輯

基於對NCR迫害的恐懼,他極力隱藏起他的過去,當他發現生命里已經有太多男人的時候,他說道 "lovers make poor confidantes."。對他來說,那些殘存者們就是唯一的親人,但隨着時間的流逝,他們之間也逐漸變得陌生。但在他的母親死去以後,黛茜·惠特曼是他生命中唯一的女性。對她來說,阿卡德就像她從未有過的兒子。

與玩家的互動編輯

互動一覽編輯

Template:Interactions FNV

招募為夥伴編輯

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:

  • 和追隨者關係良好。
  • The Courier has successfully completed High Times and given Julie Farkas the needed medical supplies.
    • Note that for this approach, 需要先和阿卡德對話問他是否想要一些幫助,之後在阿卡德感謝信使對追隨者的幫忙後,會獲得一個選項去詢問他是否願意加入你。
  • 通過了一個難度為75的口才檢測。
  • Confirmed Bachelor專長
  • 甘農也會出於對玩家超低的智力屬性的憐憫而加入為夥伴。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,如果玩家和軍團關係良好,阿卡德會拒絕加入。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.

任務編輯

Making him quit編輯

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.

Endings編輯

物品清單編輯

* 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.

註釋編輯

  • 如果你穿着軍團勢力的裝甲他不會理睬你。 
  • 阿卡德的智力是所有隊友中最高的,為10,他的魅力也是所有隊友中最高的,為6。
  • 阿卡德個子明顯比其他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.
  • 雖然阿卡德的醫學知識可以用在Bitter Springs Infirmary Blues任務,這樣玩家就不必收集相應的書籍,但在Restoring HopeVolare!這兩個任務中,阿卡德幫不上什麼忙。
  • 阿卡德可以說流利的拉丁語,同時他堅決與軍團劃清界限,稱他的拉丁語都是自己通過戰前書籍、樂譜、以及全息磁帶學的。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.
  • 如果你的隊伍里有Rex和ED-E,一些有趣的對話可以招募阿卡德時被觸發。
  • 當玩家問起阿卡德·的研究成果時,他會說用莫哈維附近的藥材很難做出治療針,而實際情況是只需布洛克花、山達根以及空注射器就行了。
  • 如果信使在Beyond the Beef中提議用阿卡德代替Ted被吃,那麼Mortimer會對其身高和下巴做出評論。
  • 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.
  • 帶阿卡德到特定他會發表一些評論:
    • 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編輯

  • "Victrix causa deis placuit sed victa Catoni. (The conquering cause pleased the gods, but the conquered cause pleased Cato.)"
  • "I can't comprehend how Caesar could so extensively scramble your sense of morality to make you think the Legion is a better alternative to anything."
  • "No, really. Have you ever snorted a ground up Cazador venom sac? Neither have I, but I can guarantee you that a Freeside junkie has."
  • "Okay. I just wanted you to confirm that I'm traveling in the company of an insane fascist. Thanks."
  • "The people who live here don't deserve to be victims of your misguided attempts at political engineering. Or are they just collateral damage?"
  • ""Knowledge is power," but to what end for Henry, I have no idea. The problem was what mattered to him, not its practical impact."
  • "I mean, I'm not like them. I was born at Navarro and my father served with them, but I wasn't really part of the Enclave. It seems presumptuous of me to think that I could join the fight, even if this is a cause worth fighting for. Because I know once the fighting breaks out at the Dam, all hell is going to break loose in Freeside. They're going to need every doctor they can get."
  • "Great! You're either unimaginably cruel or profoundly insane!"
  • "I still don't know how this is all going to shake out in the end, but at least the Enclave can atone a bit for all the damage it's done."
  • "All I ask is that you put it to good use. This place has lived in the shadow of Caesar for long enough. I may not be the one to help stop him here, but you are. Fortis fortuna adiuvat. Good luck, and good bye."
  • "Oh, you know. Finding alternative treatments for common illnesses and injuries. Stimpaks out of barrel cacti and other fantastic improbabilities. As far as fruitless wastes of time go, it's quite noble in its aims."
  • "Hey there! Was it always your plan to sell me into slavery to Caesar, or was that just a spur of the moment thing?"
  • "Why don't you make like Odysseus and get lost?"
  • "...Wow. You sound like you really do need some help."
  • "Wait, wait, wait a second. What's going on? Am I playing Vergil to your Dante? I'd like to assume that we're tiptoeing into the mouth of hell out of academic curiosity, but I'm not so open-minded that I've lost my brains."

登場編輯

阿卡德·甘農只出現在輻射:新維加斯,不過曾準備出現在范布倫中,這是被黑島取消的Fallout 3。

幕後編輯

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.

  • Icon xbox360 If you have Lily and ED-E as a companion it is possible to recruit him as a third companion. This is also true for Veronica Santangelo. It is also possible to have Rex, Raul and Arcade at the same time. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 Icon pc After dismissing Arcade as a companion to the Old Mormon Fort, he sometimes becomes un-recruitable again through dialogue. Dismiss your non-humanoid companion (ED-E or Rex) to the Lucky 38/their Home and try Arcade's dialogue again. His follower dialogue will reappear. [已核實]
  • Icon ps3 Icon xbox360 Icon pc After completing For Auld Lang Syne and convincing Arcade to stay in Freeside instead of returning to Freeside he may just wander around the lucky 38 suite unrecruitable and just becomes an information hub until all of his speech options are exhausted. This happens when Arcade is sent to the Lucky 38, then completing For Auld Lang Syne. If you don't want Arcade in the Lucky 38 send him back to the Old Mormon Fort when firing him. This may happen even if he is not fired before completing the quest. [已核實]
  • Icon ps3 Icon xbox360 Icon pc Sometimes he will still be recruitable after completion of For Auld Lang Syne. He will not display a companion screen and will die in casual mode instead of being knocked unconscious, but will still follow the player. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 After completing his quest For Auld Lang Syne, when you talk to him you cannot exit the conversation. In order to exit, you must reload a save. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 There is a way to get Arcade Gannon to still be your follower after For Auld Lang Syne. Be sure to save before you go outside as he can disappear after he gives you the Gannon family Tesla armor, you can follow him out when he is getting his father's armor and then ask him to be your follower again, as many times until it works, you have to pick the option to go back to Freeside as this is the only way he will not be locked in the remnants bunker's command center. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 Icon pc Sometimes when you don't have any followers, you may ask him to be a follower and he will claim that there is too many people in your party already. Recruiting Rex or ED-E before asking Arcade to join will alter his response tree and get him to accept your offer to join. [已核實]
  • Icon ps3 Arcade will occasionally die upon fast travel. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 While in combat, explosions may occur around Arcade, and permanently cripple his legs. Trying to use stimpaks and/or doctor's bags will not work, nor does dismissing Arcade as your companion and waiting a considerable amount of time. (after dismissing him you can watch him hobble around at the Old Mormon Fort at Freeside). A possible fix is to change his apparel and get him to attack, this should bring him out of his crippled state. He will also be unable to fast travel with the Courier. Waiting for him to catch up is a possible solution, if you cannot remember where you lost him. [已核實]
  • Icon pc Sometimes when you enter the Old Mormon Fort, Arcade may become duplicated. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 Icon pc Sometimes when either non-humanoid companions are in the party when conversing with Arcade the travel together option will not display, dismissing the other companion will allow him to be recruited. [已核實]
  • Icon ps3 When speaking to Arcade while he is recruited the option to tell him to follow you may not appear. This can be fixed by telling him to wait then telling him to follow you in the companion wheel. [已核實]
  • Icon ps3 Icon xbox360 Enemies turned to 'goo piles' by Arcade's plasma pistol will sometimes remain for the entire game. This can be especially annoying as it will take up more memory and possibly lead to lags in FPS. [已核實]
  • Icon ps3 Sometimes the option to recruit Arcade will not even appear. It is unknown at this time what causes this or why, however, a fix seems to be using EITHER of the two Companion dismissal terminals, located in the Lucky 38 casino right next to the elevator and at the Gun Runners next to the kiosk, then returning to him. Afterwards, the option will appear again.
  • Icon xboxone Sometimes when telling Arcade to "wait here," he will be found at Scorpion gulch. It can prove tricky to get to him but the player can use the gulch's walls to climb up.

Inventory related

  • Icon xbox360 When Arcade returns any items the courier has given to him (Due to leaving should the player activate the Archimedes, or at the end of For Auld Lang Syne), it is possible that he will not re-equip his default Followers outfit, leaving him "naked" for the remainder of the game. [已核實]
  • Icon ps3 Give Arcade a pre-War bonnet to put on & the game rendering messes up. Might happen on other gaming platforms & maybe on different companions but not tested yet. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 Icon pc Boone will take his Plasma Defender if both are waiting in the Lucky 38. He will use it instead of his hunting rifle, leaving Arcade unarmed. The weapons don't appear on the inventory. A way to fix this bug is by doing the companion glitch with Veronica. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 Sometimes after entering a casino and you hand over your weapons, Arcade will not get his default weapon back (or any you issued him) and will attack with fists (During this glitch I could not issue him another weapon, due to the fact he would equip it and the first time he engaged in combat he would instantly deplete the weapons condition to 0% and drop it saying "This weapon is done for") Not sure if this problem is isolated to the Xbox360. [已核實]
  • Icon pc Arcade will not use any GRA ranged weapons.
  • Icon pc Sometimes if Arcade equips a weapon that is placed into his inventory, it will vanish from his inventory after fast-traveling and he will switch back to his Plasma Defender. [已核實]
  • Icon xbox360 Sometimes weapons issued to Arcade such as the Gauss rifle may appear as though they have a full Condition, but after a short battle with one or more enemies the weapon will become completely depleted with no warning except an occasional remark from Arcade about needing a new weapon. To further complicate matters, he will likely discard the depleted weapon, making it difficult or impossible to locate and repair. It is highly recommended that the courier saves the game frequently and checks his inventory often when giving Arcade any rare or named weapons.
  • Icon pc Arcade might stop following the "stay back" command. This persists on any new or old save file. There is no known fix. [已核實]
