    We already made some special encounters but now we want to include ideas from fans. Feel free to suggest well.. anything and we'll see if we can make it happen!
    We should definitively have a RPG Codex special encounter but we want you to tell us what it is :cool:

    I posted on Facebook, but I'll post here as well:

    - A nordic guy following a quest compass. You know of who I'm talking about...

    - A guy that says he can stop time when he shoots, and shouts VATS-like noises when in battle. This could be really funny since TB-combat means that yes, he "stopped time" on his turn.

    A red troll/super mutant, sit slightly apart from everything else, "thinker pose".

    when you ask it something, it will answer in different expressions like a multiple personalities.

    (this is to implied that the hivemind is not of single consensus).

    Just keep in mind Cain's rule about how it should be funny even if you don't know the reference.

    It should have a long dead corpse holding a trash can at the entrance.

    A band of female amazon raiders.
    They're wearing leather, handcuffs, batons and whips. But they also have big guns.


    They should be really strong, so that on most cases you can only survive the encounter by using diplomacy.


    Show Spoiler
    They're trannies.
    And the diplomacy part is you getting bumraped by them. LCK will affect the chance of getting an STD.

    Among the loot inside the bunker, you should be able to find a document plan that describes Cleve's version of FEV. In which the evolutionary part is everyone dies except 'thals.

    A talking horse who is being ridden by a mongoloid-looking human (neanderthal) who are having a discussion about the superiority of humans. But of course, one is debating that horsemen are superior, and the other it debating that cave men are superior. Especially since cave men can ride horse men. So the horse bucks the cave man off, and they are about to fight it out, when they meet you, an obviously inferior offshoot of evolutionary development. And sneer at you instead.

    This was stated in an earlier thread, but I think it's worth taking another look.

    A den full of deathclaws, at the end of which is a single room. In that room is a pile of giant robes, a can of white paint, and a box full of dictionaries.

    An encounter where you meet Prosper, at which point the game uninstalls itself, deletes your hard drive and severs internet connection.

    In a way, Van Buren's weedlings are a nod to Prosper's work

    That is rather Prosperian. :salute:

    EDIT: Maybe if you can program it this way: They have a 1% chance of shouting out "Hopw roewur ne"

    I'm okay with a Codex reference or two, but can we try and focus on more non-Codex stuff? The stuff's hilarious and all, but we're trying to make this for everyone, not just the Codex.

    Prosper will be represented in some way though. Plus he's known in other parts of the Fallout community.

    Hmmmm...

    Why is it called a weedling when it's pretty big? Weedling would imply something small but that's not the case here

    a woman shows up claiming to be carrying your babby and now you must decide what to do. accept her as useless follower or pay her off or something very not nice oh the possibilities.
    later it turns out it isn't even a real woman and now this dude attempts to kill you with what he yells is scottish martial arts.
    perception check can identify gender on first encounter.
