Haven't heard Pfennig for a long time, at least from people under 30.


Just occured to me, they messed that up in Fallout. You can find caps in desks, cupboards, filing cabinets but I've never found them where they belong, in trashcans. There you can find cigarettes and pre war money.

Well I'm thinking in 200 years about damn near every cap has been scrounged foe currency.

I've found them in trashbins.

I'm surprised there aren't a bunch of raiders in the Nuka Cola plant, counterfeiting bottlecaps.

Actually, I guess it wouldn't be counterfeit.

No wonder the Germans have been involved in so many wars; they have such cool names for their weapons.
Paradise Falls is dead.

Names may not be relevant, but at least rifles here are not described with french vokabulary, as in some english speaking countries.

Thanks Pikeman! That shit was easy, once I stopped flopping around and went up for air... The mines and gas had me flailing around a bit after I tripped them The robot dude gave me a plasma rifle and the doctor gave me 50 caps... Thanks again!

Okay. Returned the liberry books for the chick in bombtown.

Found some power armour and a helmet along the way.

Any hints as to how to use this stuff?

Oh, and is the armoury in bombtown ever open?

Craterside opens at 8am. Go sleep in your house for long enough to get to 8 or you can use the < arrow (the opposite of the start button) to wait as long as you want.

Leave the power armor in your house, you won't be able to use it until you are trained by the Brotherhood of Steel later in the game.
