Old Orleans, New Trouble: A Fallout Campaign

Game Master SinBlade06

Old Orleans is in trouble, but from what? A campaign based off of Fallout 3.

Here's how it'll go to avoid confusion. Hopefully this works...

Player's Turn: Description as well as rolls for whatever they wish
GM's Resolution
Player
GM's Turn: Resolution of previous turn as well as creature/enemy turn

Rinse and repeat. I'll be saying who's turn it is during my resolution. Sadly, this means that combat may take a little bit since I have to do resolutions. Hope y'all are ok with this.


Male Human Paladin 4

That's fine by me...

Also consider you have our character sheets, so anything that's passive (Saves/Skills/Etc) that are triggered by the enemies, you could just roll on them.

For instance...Player 1,2,3 go. Then a monster with a gaze attack goes. Players 4 & 6 fail their saves when he gets in range, and are out of the fight (paralyzed/dazed/petrified/etc).

You just describe the event as it happened, players 4 & 6 take the bad effects, everyone else scrambles.

Works for me, at least.


Whatever makes it easiest for you, GM. The easier things are for you, the more likely it will work out for all of us.


M Ghoul Engineer 4 (HP 21/27)

yeah its all good with me. i figure these things will close in on whoever is in front and then ill bomb them if i can miss the PCs heh


Male Ghoul Alchemist 3

I'm pretty sure I blasted apart the one I targeted. I wonder if we'll be able to sell the pip-boys...


M Ghoul Engineer 4 (HP 21/27)

i'm gonna try to attach one to myself!


Male Human Paladin 4

If I can figure a way to attach the Pip-Boy to my armor I want one as well.


Female Human 3rd Barbarian

Same here if possible. I think that might have been the Gm's initial idea with the vault. ~shrugs~ who knows. I do not want one that has been attached to a ghoul for a long time...no offense but think of the gunk that is attached to it. I will try and find a fresh one in the engineering room.


Actually, it was my idea to get you some Pip-Boys of your own.

With them, we can instill the Called Shots alternate rules, and I'll even reduce the penalties for using a Pip-Boy. Again, this is only if you want to.


M Ghoul Engineer 4 (HP 21/27)

you better believe i want to!!!

nothin more satisfying than cramming a grenade in someone's mouth

or shooting them in the groin


Female Human 3rd Barbarian

Pokes gameplay thread

I think we all do, I want to chop someones head off.


M Ghoul Engineer 4 (HP 21/27)

do we have a map? Just waiting on Marcel, then Lilith, then BOMB TIME


M Human

great, just great. first attack is a 1. at least the shells wont go off if i dont hit anything

Qadira

Male Human? Shirker/3

This is why Bombs are cool.


Female Human 3rd Barbarian

That is why I do no like guns very much.


Once you have a Pip-Boy you'll have a map. As for a physical map that I can show you guys, no. Sorry.


Male Human Paladin 4

Didn't mean to interrupt the combat.

Just used to the players posting as they can & GM recapping the round once we all declare actions


M Human

yeah i would have bombed but they were all up on an ally


Male Human Paladin 4

Ditto with the rifle.

I really have to get a better melee weapon.


Male Ghoul Alchemist 3

Melee is for weaklings who don't have high powered explosives, or for muscle heads trained in smacking each other.

I'm willing to bet that you'll never see Crispy strike in CC.


I'll make an exception to the rules for a moment. In Fallout, you can shoot at someone when you're right next to them and, if they don't know or feel threatened, they won't attack back until they are ready. So I'll say that you can make attacks with firearms and not provoke. Reloading does, however.

Also, you can make Called Shots now, but you'll be using the regular penalties for them. When you get your Pip-Boys you can make Called Shots at one penalty less, meaning that an Easy shot has no penalty, and Tricky is at a -2, and Challenging is at a -5.

Again, that's only after you get your Pip-Boy.


So I had an idea that would make combat faster as well as more interactive.

In Fallout 3 and NV, when you use VATS (Vault-tec Assisted Targeting System) You can tell how much health an enemy has and how much damage you'd do if you hit them.

I was thinking of giving you guys that chance when you get the Pip-Boys.

When combat starts, I'll provide the HP, Defense Score, and DR of the enemies you'll be facing. That way you guys can do your own thing while I'm away.

I have to work almost all day, and when I'm actually needed to post I'm working the Drive-Thru. So if everyone's ok with this, we can instill it when you get the Pip-Boys.

Don't worry, you'll be getting them pretty soon. And I wouldn't recommend the Pip-Boys the ghouls are wearing. Those things have been around for nearly 100 years, so they probably smell really, really bad.


Female Human 3rd Barbarian

Sure sounds like fun Gm.


M Human

Sounds good. We can just resell them


Female Human 3rd Barbarian

I wonder who would buy smelly Pip-boys with skin attached in places.


M Human

well of course we will have to clean em a bit. oh well, maybe ill find some ghouls that want them


Male Ghoul Alchemist 3

There's that creep from downtown that buys everything. I can't think of a single material item that guy doesn't buy or sell.

I'm willing to bet we can make a bargain with him.


Who, Jacob? Yeah, he'll probably buy it from you.


Human Alchemist 4|Init +1|HP 39/39|Fort 5|Ref 4|Will 4|AC 15

Urgh, life as a dex rogue without weapon finesse... Fortunately I still have my skill-monkey skills.


M Human

ugh yeah i hate that first level of rogue when you cant have weapon finesse.

Qadira

Male Human? Shirker/3

Why can't you have weaon finesse at first level? Last I checked it didn't have a +1Bab prereq.


Human Alchemist 4|Init +1|HP 39/39|Fort 5|Ref 4|Will 4|AC 15

...What the hell. You're completely right.

Why on earth did I have it seared into my brain that it required +1Bab?

GM, I'm very sorry for this, but would you mind if I changed my feats?


Female Human 3rd Barbarian

I think me and max super squished the ghoul that we took that AOO on.


Go ahead and change out one of your feats for Weapon Finesse.

Anyone can make any changes to their character they wish, but as soon as you reach second lvl, it's set in stone.


M Human

Ah just like fallout 3 I like it.


Female Human 3rd Barbarian

Scabs, you read my mind exactly O___O


Human Alchemist 4|Init +1|HP 39/39|Fort 5|Ref 4|Will 4|AC 15

Thanks very much, GM.


Male Human Paladin 4

Yeah, big helmet, wisdom in the hole, and low skills.


M Ghoul Engineer 4 (HP 21/27)

oh boy. a ghoul with a gun, and two people (with THOSE rolls) trying to diplomacize him. this will be too funny!! hahahaha


M Human

we dont know for sure if he is a vault dweller. we havent been given info on what he is wearing, he could have opened the door as easily as we did and closed it behind him. we might have a scavenger here pretending to be an innocent.

Male Human Paladin 4

Assumptions are a big part of being a dumbass, though.


Male Human Paladin 4

Aggressive negotiations, eh Scab?


M Ghoul Engineer 4 (HP 21/27)

yeah, im just not sure this guy is all he says he is. sounds like he has something to hide. and if its his fault that those guys got turned into ferals, he is giving ghouls a bad name and i dont like that


What a time for a Nat 20! Nice roll Scab.


M Ghoul Engineer 4 (HP 21/27)

yeah i figured with my -1 i was only going to make things much worse hahahah


Are we going to be using any kind of crit/fumble chart in this game? Seems like a fun place to test-bed a lot of the optional rules people seem to be leary of in normal games.


2 people marked this as a favorite.
Human Alchemist 4|Init +1|HP 39/39|Fort 5|Ref 4|Will 4|AC 15

Could be fun- if you roll three 1s in a row, the Mysterious Stranger shows up and shoots you in the crotch.


How does this sound, a fumble is when a weapon past perfect condition is fired or used. On a nat one, the weapon works but with a combat fumble. Melee weapons will fumble on a nat one. When you fumble you roll a d20 with no bonuses, on a 5 or less it is a confirmed fumble.

Fumble chart we will be using Roll a d100 on a confirmed fumble to see what happens.


So Lilith just let me know that she's not feeling too good and she's gonna be DMPC'd for a little while till she's feeling better.

By the way, in case you didn't know, Lilith is my wife. That's how I know so quickly.

Feel better, lilith!
