Just finished "Torchship." Pretty good, but I'm fairly sure it was originally three novellas, because there was very little plot holding the three sections together.

Found an explosive minigun last night!

...about half an hour after using console commands to make one myself. Oh well. With max ranks in Demolition Expert and Heavy Gunner, I can kill anything in about half a second. I might take a stroll over to Fort Strong with this baby.

For a newer player that wants to dish out damage, I'd stick with the fighter. It's simple, and the damage and accuracy are consistently high, rather than changing based on what you're fighting or whether you use ki, etc.

You know what will get you even earlier entry? Bloodrager!

Take the Primalist archetype to pick up rage powers like Reckless Abandon and Surprise Accuracy, and the Urban Bloodrager archetype to get a Dex-based rage (or stick with Strength on an adaptive bow when you need the damage more).

You'd have great accuracy, and better spell progression than with a 1-level dip of Sorcerer.

Firefly meets dune? Huh. Would not have made that pairing myself, if only because the two stories are so different in style and scope that it would have never occurred to me.

I'm not terribly familiar with Dune, but I think the restrictions on computers is the only resemblance. It has much more of the grimy, blue-collar spaceship crew milieu to it.

I think Felicity looked too heartbroken in the limo for it to be Quentin. My money is on her mother. I think that best matches the emotional states of Felicity, Oliver, and Barry that we've seen.

Also, my wife keenly observed that Felicity was not wearing her engagement ring in the flash forward. Drama!

He wasn't so tough, though. Two crits to the face from my Broadsider, and his head was gone.

Once-per-session, regardless of how many items you have.

However, in a lot of areas it's common practice for other players (or even the GM) to hand out their rerolls to other players, especially if they don't have an item of their own.

The official Character Folio is worth a re-roll, and can often be bought at brick-and-mortar stores.

It could be worse. You could've replaced her trenchcoat with a slinky red dress so that she's following you around in the wasteland dressed as a lounge singer...

That's what I did, because I was playing a James Bond-style character, and needed a Bond girl. But my wife kept calling her "slutbag," so I eventually switched to Deacon.

This seems odd as that Link seems to suggest you still need to specify.

For reporting reasons, the entire table has to be Core or not. If the table is mixed, any Core characters will be converted to non-Core.

Although I'm up to the Nat confession point with Piper, I haven't been pushing the Flirt option with Piper, namely because although I have a good charisma, I have absolutely horrible luck with charisma checks. It hasn't really helped that since I'm doing a good run with Piper, I can't practice by demanding more caps.

I can't wait till I get Ballistic Fiber, though. I look really snazzy in a sequined black dress, fashionable glasses, and the Silver Shroud hat.

When I maxed Charisma (11 with the Bobblehead) I never failed a Charisma check (and I had low Luck to boot). With enough fancy outfits (such as the one you describe!) you should succeed.

Also, you could gain max affinity as "just friends" and THEN romance her later (if you don't the first time, the conversation will keep triggering occasionally, IIRC), when you DO succeed you'll get more XP from the affinity perk she gave you. ;)

I'm really annoyed you can't choose same sex when picking "Black Widow" style perk (because these affect persuasion and damage, which is, mind, weird to me). I get them wanting to restrict the to 50% of the human population since there are a LOT of humans in Fallout 4, but female players should still get the CHOICE at least between Cherchez la Femme and Black Widow, and males Confirmed Bachelor and Ladies' Man.

My money is on a mod already being out there for it

The Black Widow/Lady Killer perks have separate ID codes, so in theory you should be able to add it via console command. Not sure if that might cause problems if you have the wrong one, though.

Do companion perks persist after you let a companion go? Because I ditched Piper after romancing her, but I think I still got the XP boost while adventuring with Deacon.

It was OK in FNV, where there was a threshold above which the damage didn't improve anymore. But in FO3, it was SO ANNOYING that my top-of-the-line weapons would suddenly do less damage after firing a single bullet.

If you want a bigger dagger, you could use a shortsword. Rogues are proficient with it, and it's slightly bigger damage than a dagger (1d6 vs. 1d4), but still counts as a light weapon if you want to use it for Two-Weapon Fighting. You won't be able to throw it though.

You should be able to find a masterwork weapon by level 2 in most games, unless they are deliberately low-loot/low-magic.

Let me help you out here, because the game is annoying about this especially since theres a minor bug.

The big arched part has to go over the part with the two poles, like it looks like they should. However, they dont really fit correctly, because the part with the poles and the arched part snap to floors at different places, and prioritize snapping to floors over snapping to each other. Thanks Bethesda. So to work around this, place a wooden floor and place the part with the poles on it, then delete the wooden floor and the arch part will snap to the poles part, after that you can hold the move key to move the entire rig to where you want it. Then just wire them all together and to enough power, and youre good to go.

I actually didn't have much trouble getting those pieces to snap together. As far as I could tell, as long as I didn't move in between building them, they'd automatically fit. I saw several walkthroughs, none of which worked, until I read that the secret was to look at your quest objectives and see which pieces it hadn't credited you with building. Then store and replace them from the workshop until you had all three objectives completed.

While I'm glad to not be tempted to build more, it's a total bummer the place can't be turned into a settlement--it's a perfect spot for it. I wonder how the devs decided what to make a settlement and what not.
Yeah, I know where you're talking about. I will not be surprised when modding really picks up and transforms like a dozen new locations into settlements.

I understand there's already a mod that will let you put a crafting bench anywhere. I kind of want to use it to settle the wreckage of the airplane to the east of Sanctuary.

For what it's worth, the -1 to hit doesn't apply to bows, so there's no penalty. But I agree that if you don't want to go all-in for archery, that spell loss is pretty bad.

Boy, that would have saved me a couple of quickloads if I'd known that earlier...

Although even on the stealthy character I'm playing, I haven't had any other reason to pickpocket, and haven't invested in any of the perks. I literally don't think I've had a single mission where I needed to get a MacGuffin off of someone who wasn't trying to kill me.

Yeah, I much preferred the threshold method of FNV. I hated that in FO3, I could have my Speech maxed out and still not be guaranteed to succeed at some checks. At least FO4 is a bit better, because with 10 Charisma and one rank in the Lady Killer perk, I haven't failed any red persuasion attempts against women, and only 2 against men by level 45 or so (and yeah, I save scummed those 2).

Personally, I wouldn't allow readied actions to trigger on your own actions, or anything else that's basically trying to "scam" the readied action rules to guarantee attacks go off exactly how you want them. I think part of the cost of the style is that there is some uncertainty in how the readied actions will pan out.

That being said, you might consider the Crusader archetype. Not only will it get you Weapon Focus for free and speed up your plan, it will give you some other bonus feats, such as Greater Weapon Focus, Weapon Specialization, and/or Improved Critical. The tricky part is the small list for level 5, but Shield Focus with a buckler isn't a bad idea for surprise rounds.

On the other hand, if you're building for Overwatch Style, why not a Crossbowman fighter? The bonus feats get it online WAY faster, the damage bonus to readied actions would be a huge DPR boost, and he gets some other goodies as well.

This is correct. However you might be able to pull off a nice Vital Strike Crossbowman build. Bullseye Shot is pretty sweet here... There's also a cool new teamwork feat in Inner Sea Races which allows you to wield a large crossbow that might be fun...
I've played a Vital Strike crossbowman fighter 7/rogue x before. It's nice for a one big hit build, and good at disrupting mages, but it's no where near optimal. It can still be effective despite that, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you are okay with that.

Of course, Ranger also brings gravity bow to the table, which allows Vital Strikes for 4d8 damage. Still not close to optimal, but it nets an average of 7 more damage per shot over 2d10.

How do you start the Railroad stuff? Is it a "go to this location and look around" thing or do you get the quest from someone...I haven't seen it yet and want to look for it.

If you wander around Diamond City (or talk to Piper), you'll hear about the Freedom Trail, and get a quest for it. Basically you follow a line of red bricks through downtown, until you get to the Old North Church where they're headquartered. I'm sure you can do it without the quest, though

Showdown against the Institute Courser last night:

Spoiler:
The first time, he saw me coming, but initiated dialog. I hoped I could come to a peaceful resolution that way, but it just ended with him attacking me point-blank after popping a Stealth Boy, which isn't my strong suit. Even with Piper distracting him with Grognak's Axe, I couldn't keep myself healed and fight an invisible guy at the same time, so I died.

Next try, I pop my own Stealth Boy, sneak up on him, and deliver two 4x damage sneak attack crits to the head with my incendiary shotgun. That did the trick.

One of the Gunners that the Courser had been interrogating gave me lip, so I shot him, but spared the two that begged for it.

What's the key to keeping settlement happiness up? My main settlement at Sanctuary Hills oscillates between 40-60% happiness. The only thing they ever complain about specifically is having too few beds, even though I have more than enough. I've heard that sometimes it's because people won't go to a bed, but I've checked at night and found no one wandering around except Codsworth.

For the record, I've got all of the tier 3 shops (with assigned villagers), and AFAICT I have plenty of food and water for everybody. I even built them an amphitheater in the cul-de-sac for crying out loud!

...OK, it's just some couches, TVs, and speakers. But still.

I think you're drawing a largely arbitrary distinction between "magic" and "supernatural, but not magic." How is lassoing a tornado not "magic"? Just because it's done by swinging a weapon, rather than wiggling fingers?

Apparently, when the Commando perk says it applies to "automatic" weapons, it only means fully automatic, not semi-automatic. I just put my 4th rank in it, and use Deliverer and a .50 cal sniper rifle as my main weapons.

I may need to fix that with console commands. But the bright side is that I made it to level 34 with none of the basic damage-boosting perks, and now my damage should skyrocket!

Brotherhood of Steel wants me to go clear out Fort Strong, which has been Overrun with Super Mutants. I figure, no problem, let me sneak up with my sniper rifle and pick them off from Stealth, like I do.

No such luck. The BoS apparently doesn't believe in strength finder tests, because they stick me behind a minigun for a frontal assault. At least I'm in a vertibird and out of their reach, right? On the contrary, I died about a dozen times as the vertibird I'm in gets shot down and explodes.

Then, a stroke of luck! The vertibird gets shot down again, but I land safely in the water. I hustle to the shore, then engage in a protracted cat-and-mouse game with the Super Mutants, picking off one or two and running for cover until they lose me. I ended up blowing three mini nukes, two on the behemoth and one on a legendary butcher.

Then, literally ten seconds after I kill the last mutant, Paladin Danse strolls up out of nowhere and tells me he'll "secure" the armaments. B!*&@, please!
