Some of my favourite moments from the game:
First game, loved getting into costume at the start and seeing all the other amazing costumes people had made and the fantastic set dressing the crew had come up with.
My little sister, from the first meeting as she was a slave and Sosa just grabbing Fox and dragging her along to show her his sister just. The communication that was going on between Sosa and Margie with just looks and small gestures. Bryn’s slaver that was trying so hard to get himself killed. Through to later when she had recovered and started guilt tripping Sosa about leaving the tribe and her and not staying and leading. To the teasing about babies and trying to marry each other off. To her shy attraction to the Doctor Allan, and Sosa just blatantly walking up to Allan and asking if her was married, then telling Allan’s mother that he better marry Margie if he knew what was good for him . Oh and Margie’s joy at finding out Sosa hadn’t been killed by raiders and actually launching herself across the room at him so I literally caught her in my arms. Thanks Nik, loved this NPC.
Fox, less I can say here without giving too much away. But many great conversations and moments. The partners in crime, being involved in the middle of a lot of conflicts many started by them…or one of them cough Fox cough, but always looking out for each other. Enjoyed watching her reaction to Margie’s teasing. The time they were teasing each other about numbers of lovers and jealousy . Fox just straight out shooting in the head the person that knocked out Sosa. And then at the end after the assassination attempt, both grievously wounded curled up beside each other. Thanks Sam, really liking the Fox and Sosa characters we made.
The interaction with some of the other characters and NPCs were great, even little interactions that set up relationships, Sosa trusting Tim to keep his gun or Soloman having concerns with violence. Loved a scene where Hannah’s character (never found out her name), high on Emerald was trying to explain to a confused Sosa about her shiny star/crown/flower thing. I ended up having a lot of great interactions with the Doctors funnily enough, and each is different and fun in his and her own way. Oh and to all those characters that came to explain to Sosa and ask for his help with High Technology and Super viruses and so on, I hope it came across he had NO idea what you crazy people were on about, he’s a simple man.
Loved the Clement republic show down, and thinking oh crap, as I saw a couple of shots fired…as Sosa loyally still swung his axe.
Getting knocked out was fun and lead to some interesting drama later.
And the Raiders attack, so many raiders, so many guns, so many shields. Had to fight and then run across the room to get my shield. And I may not have realised how many raiders I was charging into until I was amongst them. But it felt pretty epic being in there fighting and turning and seeing most of the town behind tables with guns pointing over the top, very different to say a Teonn or 33AR battle.
