Fallout 4 Dead is Dead Thread

    I've been wanting to get this rolling for a while, so here goes. A good old Dead is Dead (DiD) Thread for Fallout 4.

    The basic premise of the Dead is Dead thread is to foster community involvement around the game by starting a new character and playing until you die. Start by registering your character is the comments of this thread – list your new character’s name, chosen difficulty level and then play that character until it dies. Then you post the cause of death and final level attained. (Follow the template example below).

    You are not limited to one character and each site member can start multiple characters (especially helpful if you don’t make it past a certain Deathclaw in Concord)! But, you can only play one at a time. Once a character dies, you start again.

    The goal is to attempt to reach the end of the main quest without ever dying. While it is impossible to enforce, there are a couple rules one must follow if you want to play the game correctly and as intended. There is no prize. There is no time table. Just an open-ended thread for fun and hilarious deaths.  

    Rules:

    NO reloading if you die, obviously.

    NO fast travel (except Institute relay and BOS Vertibird).

    NO cheating your levels through bugs, exploits or MODS.

    NO cheating items or obtaining caps in a cheating manner or via MODS.

    NO overpowered mods, or mods that alter the difficulty of surviving (immersive ones are fine).

    Carry Limit Cap if not playing Survival Mode = 4 Weapon max

    Must make legitimate attempt to proceed through Main Quest (as marked by the following quesst and levels - must start the quest at least by stated level):

    When Freedom Calls: Level 10

    Unlikely Valentine: Level 15

    Reunions: Level 20

    Glowing Sea: Level 30

    Hunter Hunted: Level 35

    Molecular Level: Level 40 


    Charcater Registration Template:

    Cause of Death: Bit off more than he could chew...eaten by pack of mongrel dogs at the overpass by Drumlin Diner.

    Lastly, if you are trying Survival Mode for the first time, please refer to this discussion full of Tips & Tricks. Ponty's "The Survivor" is a great template too. Enjoy!

    I'll play in a few hours. I rarely play past level 20 anyway, so a short form build seems right up my alley. Getting to level 10 before completing When Freedom Calls seems like the hardest part, honestly. I usually rely on that quest to give me a few easy levels in the early game.

    I think you read it the opposite way - I'm just saying you need to try to get through that quest before that level, not after it. But either way, I just wanted to set those as more of a guide, not a hard and fast rule. Just so people weren't like sitting in sanctuary building stuff or powerleveling without "playing".

    ...ooohhhh. Yeah, I read it wrong. I get it now! Well I've started, so I'll get the info up in a bit. And since I'm already in a slow paced, exploratory mood, I'll take the scenic route to Concord.

    Hehehehe this is brilliant, I can't wait to make a character. I'm feeling a chem loving explosive expert; I know I'm gonna die so might as well go out with a bang! I can't wait to see all the funny stories people share on this
