“This is Radio New Vegas, and it's just about time to get you some news. In the news this week folks, man, I’m troubled just to hear it, and I’ve not even got ears! The NCR Congress withstood a potentially devastating attack today at the hands of the Boomer terrorist organization. A battalion of Boomer soldiers disguised themselves as supporters of that blast from the past Goldwater and launched an ambush in Shady Sands. While the NCR suffered some casualties among the legislators, the Boomers were ultimately unsuccessful in achieving the destruction of the NCR Congress and have solidified themselves as the Mojave’s most hated. It sure does take a lot to be more hated than the Powder Gangers and Caesar’s Legion, but they’ve found more and more ways to lower the bar. Tribe Leader Raquel was overthrown by her own people just earlier this week, and now stands trial for her crimes in the NCR courts.
Nostalgic folks remember the days of the Boomers as a simply isolationist group of former vault dwellers who staunchly defended their territory. Pearl and Loyal, the two widely respected leaders in the community who were expected to lead them for a long time, were executed by tribe leader Raquel in a bloody coup. It’s been a rough few months, folks, and I think we can all agree that we miss the days of the Courier.
Promotional consideration for this news segment has been paid for by the Ultra-Luxe. The Ultra-Luxe. Live life in the lap of luxury. That's all for now. This is Mr. New Vegas saying, I'm just no good without you.” (Event 1: Attack - Boomers)
“Boy, the Mojave Wasteland is just a fascinating place, isn't it? You never know what'll happen next. This is Mr. New Vegas, host of Radio New Vegas, coming at you live from Black Mountain. It's just about time to get you some news. Mr. House’s highly acclaimed decision to allow entry into New Vegas at no cost has had just a delightful impact on the greater community. Freeside residents are finally able to have access to the greater things in life - whether those things be poker chips, fine dining, or lovely lasses. Additionally, Mr. House has begun redistributing the governmental wealth to some of the city’s most unfortunate.
We have word that the effects of this program are already being felt. Freeside is now home to a second repair and weapons shop: Farris and Roy’s Tinkeries. The two men had fallen on hard times due to an unfortunate NCR ambush earlier in their lives, and seemed destined to live in poverty while scavenging the greater New Vegas area. Now, with the caps provided by Mr. House, the two are well off enough to own their own thriving business. Mr. House sure has proven that he’s the man to restore the economy of New Vegas even after the horrendous attacks in North Vegas.
The news has been brought to you by the Vikki and Vance Casino. Vikki and Vance. Be our partner in crime. You know, they say no news is good news. But I think my program would be awfully dull if that were the case. It’s been a slow week, but the Mojave could use more of those. Coming up, I've got some tunes I think you all are gonna like.” (Event 2: Support - Mr. House)
Radio New Vegas stood atop of Black Mountain, a beacon of information in a dreary war filled Mojave Wasteland. The institution was established by the Courier as an independent news station to report on the NCR, Legion, and Mr. House and hold them accountable to the citizens in the first election, and it came as a surprise to none that it would expand. While the goal may be for the radio station to be established across the map, expansion is slow and steady.
The first attempt at expansion is finally at hand. Radio New Vegas has too much need of its own armed guards to patrol Black Mountain and ensure that there is no interference with the program, so it has bidded it's time saving caps to hire a group of engineers, scavengers and raiders to clear out REPCONN Headquarters, a location nearby that could serve as a second strong foundation for the station. This group is to be led by former NCR Ranger Dobson, who was relieved from his post after his negligence in failing to regularly report back with NCR HQ due to a broken radio. Ranger Dobson seems to be a good fit for leader of the crew, and has significant experience in leading men and women and seems to have a good head on his shoulders.
The goal is for this group to disable and reprogram the automated security system, eliminate any raiders or bandits who have taken up residence in the unprotected areas of the property, and establish a protected zone around the HQ so that further caps can be spent on remodelling and salvaging what systems are currently in place. The group is to limit casualties among themselves, but is instructed to open fire if fire is opened upon them first. (Event 3: General Influence)
