Character Archetypes (or Classes if you will) in FONV

Post » Sat Mar 30, 2013 9:06 pm

im not sure how this will work but I wanna have a discussion about archetypes for a Courier, or in other words, classes. Im really stuck in a rut on my NCR Courier and my RP is kind of rudderless without her, so to help myself and many others lets try to come up with some ideas for some general backgrounds/archetypes/classes a Courier could have.

Perhaps we can use a template to make it easier

Class/Archetype Name
Fallout character based on:
Primary Weapon:
Important Perks:

Again Id like to keep this broad and general to an archetype and nothing relating to the character's personality so lets try to keep Traits and SPECIALs out of this if we can.

very interested to see what we come up with.
