Raider Power Hierarchy

    It is after much frustration with editing, sizing, and failing that I am able to present a little project I have been working on. I'm sure we've all come across the various named raider leaders that plague the Commonwealth; and to most of us they're just more cannon fodder to mow down with a plasma rifle. I used to think this too, until I began creating my most recent character build,(to be added soon) the Raider King. The general idea for this build was a lowly raider grunt who's goal was to climb his way to power by defeating the various named raider bosses. At first, my  plan was simply to run around shooting any raider that crossed my path. This was until a forum post reminded me of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. In this game, there is this thing called "the Nemesis System" which is essentially a constantly changing database of the various orc captains, warlords, etc. After some thought, I realized that the orcs and the raiders really aren't too different. They both fight amongst themselves, use things like fear and chems/grog to gain recruits all in a constant struggle for power. When considering this, I knew there had to be some kind of connection within the raiders of the Commonwealth.

       With this thought, I began my research! Sadly, the wikis don't provide much helpful information in this area, which meant I was going to need to play the game and learn on my own. What I discovered was a diverse and interconnected hierarchy consisting of things like a drug dealing leader (Sinjin) who used a network of underlings to do his bidding, a fire crazed leader (Slag) who used workers and ore from a local quarry to construct armor for his army, and even a rabies infected raider "king" who successfully dominated almost all raider territory in downtown Boston (Bosco). Now the main purpose of this Hierarchy chart is to act as a roadmap to guide the roleplay of my character build(that's what the colored lines are for), however it still provides cool and fun information. Oh, and I sincerely apologize for the blurry and inconsistent text, I hate computers.
