UI C Icon ChiLun 01.pngThis is a transcript for dialogue with Corporal Sterling.


GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 Howdy. Name's Sterling, First Recon. Can't say I've seen you before. I'd remember, if I had. {For this guy's VO, think Sam Elliott.} 1
GREETING Neutral 50 {Nephi dead, Sterling didn't get a hit} Took some skill to bring down that Fiend. You done good. 2
GREETING Neutral 50 {Nephi dead, Sterling got in a hit} Nothing like a job done right. Wish I had a cigar. 3
GREETING Neutral 50 {Moving into position} Been a while since they let us out of the fence. Brass must really want Nephi dead. 4
GREETING Neutral 50 {In position} Best you don't worry about us. We'll watch your back. 5
GREETING Neutral 50 {Gorobets dead} It's always hard when your commander goes down, but we'll pull through all right. 6
GREETING Neutral 50 Howdy. What brings you back? 7
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic000 You remember everyone who passes through here? Neutral 50 Got a good memory for faces. Landmarks and such, too. Comes with practice, that's all. And a lot of scoutin' from place to place. 8
You remember everyone who passes through here? Neutral 50 I reckon I've walked every inch of ground between Shady Sands and the Colorado... or close enough to make a man's feet plenty sore. 9
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic001 It's true. I've got a memorable face. Neutral 50 You're a fine-looking woman, no doubt about that. But I'm looking a little deeper than the skin, if you take my meaning. 10
It's true. I've got a memorable face. Neutral 50 Not so long ago, I spent more than my share of time lookin' for memorable folk like yourself. Did a lot of scoutin' around these parts. 11
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic002 Goodbye. Neutral 50 Mighty pleased to meet you. Maybe I'll see you again, before we move out. 12
Goodbye. Neutral 50 Always a pleasure. You keep yourself safe. 13
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic003 Have you always been with the First Recon? Neutral 50 Used to be a Ranger... one of the first they sent out east, back before we took the Dam. Observation and reconnaissance. 14
Neutral 50 We took the lay of the land, checked out the locals, and kept ourselves inconspicuous. Couple friends of mine were the first to scout the Dam. 15
Neutral 50 That was back in '73, if I recall. Lot of those Rangers are dead now. 16
Neutral 50 Vegas always chewed men up... it's just a little more literal, nowadays. 17
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic004 Why did you leave the Rangers? Neutral 50 Well... that wasn't really a matter of choice. Got myself caught by Legionnaires, up near Malpais. 18
Neutral 50 They had themselves some fun with me... mangled my hands and feet pretty good. 19
Neutral 50 Wasn't much good with a pistol after that. Wasn't gonna be trekking across the waste on any more long scouts, either. 20
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic005 How did you manage to escape Malpais? Neutral 50 Caesar's boys figured I wasn't going anywhere, after what they done to me. So they didn't bother tying me up. 21
Neutral 50 I crawled out of there on my elbows and knees. Must have looked a sight. Then I rolled down an embankment into the Colorado. 22
Neutral 50 Guess I had a mind to drown, rather than give Caesar's boys the satisfaction of killing me. 23
Neutral 50 But a couple Rangers happened to be watching from across the river. They jumped on in and pulled me out of there. Lucky break, they said. 24
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic006 Interesting rifle you have there. Lever-action, right? Neutral 50 I call her La Longue Carabine. Didn't always have the scope - I added that myself. 25
Neutral 50 Been shooting with her so long... couldn't bring myself to toss her away. Would have felt guilty to part with the old girl. 26
Neutral 50 The other snipers use bolt-action, but Gorobets reckoned it didn't matter none if I was different, so long as I can hit my targets. 27
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic007 Have you seen anything suspicious around here? Neutral 50 As a matter of fact... it's funny that you'd ask. Couple nights back, I was on watch in the yard... 28
Neutral 50 Got myself a habit of looking all around - not just where I'd expect to find trouble. Old habit, but it's saved my hide, on occasion. 29
Neutral 50 Round about one in the morning, I spied some lights in the control tower. Now that's the third time I've spied those lights, mind you. 30
Neutral 50 And every time I ask about it, they tell me the place was empty. I'm just saying... it didn't look empty to me. 31
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic008 Thanks for the information. Neutral 50 No trouble at all. Might be nothing. Couple frisky young folks looking for a quiet place to snuggle up. 32
Neutral 50 Then again... that light is mighty consistent. Always there at 1 AM. Might be worth a look. 33
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic009 How long have you been stationed here? Neutral 50 Going on six months, now. But I reckon we'll be moving out, soon enough. Can't talk about the details. 34
Neutral 50 'Til then, we'll man the towers and keep an eye on the Fiends. We've had more than our share of trouble from their direction. 35
Neutral 50 Whole things smells of Caesar to me. 'Course, that's just guesswork, but I'd still bet a few caps that he's stirring up the locals against us. 36
VFreeformMcCarran31ECorporalSterlingTopic013 Any ideas on how to convince Corporal Betsy to go see a doctor? Neutral 50 It's a pride thing with her, and totally unnecessary. I mean, look at me - I was {proudly announcing his rank and name} Ranger Sterling until the Legion got through with me. 37
Neutral 50 I was bitter, but if I'd kept my mouth shut, the NCR would've discharged me and sent me home. Instead, I asked if there was still a place for me. 38
Neutral 50 I had to prove I could still handle a gun alongside all the recruits, but look at me now - First Recon and still going strong. You tell Betsy that. 39


GOODBYE Goodbye. Neutral 50 Always a pleasure. You keep yourself safe. 40
