    Hello there wastelanders, Delta here and I have a question for you. As we all know, we all love roleplaying games, that's what brought us to this wonderful Site. But did you ever did a hardcore roleplay? I don't mean like doing the Survival mode, I mean RL roleplay. You can only wear one sidearm, one rifle, one or two melee weapons, a limited amount of food, ammo and meds. You have to walk everywhere, and I mean walking, not running, sprinting or jogging. You can only run and sprint for a limited time. That sort of thing. I have tried that and it is immensly fun. Do reply below.

    Actually, I have done this plenty of times. I would carry a Combat Knife, a 44 Magnum, and a Hunting Rifle. I would carry like 4 purified waters, 2 stimpacks, 2 Rad-X, One Radaway, and very limited amount of food. As well as limited amount of ammo making firefights fun and realistic for when I ran out I had to relay on my Combat Knife and sneak my way through some of the map to avoid detection. The only time I ran was to take cover or when I was getting chased by a Deathclaw...with no ammo...and very little health...and he killed. And with the help of mods, I can be even more immersive and roleplay even better to the point where my actions actually mattered.

    You got any good RP mods for suggestions. I would love to take my RP even depper. Especially for my Metro build.

    No problem. I had some more, but those were the "essential" ones I used.

    Delta - I did a semi-autobiographical FO4 playthrough. I've talked about it a little before, but basically I tried to put myself in nate's shoes and play literally as I thought I would. To the point where I'd often pause the game in difficut decisions and really think through the process. 

    I also used a similar strategy in that playthrough as Postman mentioned. Limited my carrying to more realistic stuff. I loved it.

    That's a pretty common but still very interesting playthrough. Actually thinking about a decision before doing it. I love how sometimes you can get attached to your character on a emotional level.

    I am glad Motty mentioned that about making a decision based on what you would have done because I did the same thing as well.

    It is a very popular playstyle. However, I try to avoid it as you never truly now how you would react in such a situation as we have never been in such a situation. Who knows if you'll stay a good person or turn into a raider. Sudden change like a nuclear war can do a lot of damage do human phsycology.

    Oh, I did that in my playthrough as well. I started out supporting Minutemen was kind-hearted and being a good person, but in the end, I sided with the BoS and was cold calculated soldier that destroyed the Institute and the Railroad, and in theory, made the Minutemen merge with the BoS for I no longer saw the Commonwealth like I once did, but a place that needs Law and Order and a place to preserve the Human species i.e. kill all ghouls, super mutants, and synths.

    No I agree - you can only take that RP plan so far when you're dealing with 'unrealistic' scenarios. Like, would I really be able to kill so many people? IDK. I'm no sociopath. haha But I did feel like when I got to meet shaun I legit felt that pang of...wait I thought the institute was evil, but this is my son..." moment.

    "What do we do with the survivors, captain?"

    "Order is clear. Eliminate all hostiles."

    I became a ruthless mercenary a lot of times. Only thing that matter is money. Oh and drop an eye on the Travelers Guide, I've updated it with all the articles I found.
