Found my first legendary creature, a legendary alpha mongrel. I beat it with my tire iron, it had a -you guessed it- a pipe pistol- that at least has plasma as an added bonus, plus I started souping it up immediately.
I started over as Jojo Applesauce, the ever cheerful amnesiac and head wound survivor that I let my six year old son name my courier in Fallout New Vegas, that is based on Toot Toot McBumbersnazzle, a travelling minstrel with a song in his heart and funny tattoos on his head, which is an amnesiac from Gravity Falls.
This time, she's an overly sarcastic deep freeze survivor with cryogenic head freeze that gave Vault-Tec an obviously fake name (that they took seriously) when they came calling.
