Death of A BrotherHood of Steel Paladin PART1 As I walk through the door of the bunker that had shielded me from the outside since I was born I couldn't help but fathom at the landscape because it felt so... alien to me.Though I've been educated about ghouls,geckos,raiders and deathclaws i've never been on the surface for myself but I knew from stories the older paladins told was that the wasteland is a unforgiving landscape that will try its best to kill you at every turn. On this particular day Elder Mcnamara had assigned me to my first actual mission with a few others to eliminate an NCR Ranger outpost that had been casue trouble for our scouts, I jumped at the offer as I had never seen combat aside from pre-war simulators.As our team got ready for the two-day trip we started loading up on microfusion cells for our laser rifles and a couple of plasma grenades, But now that I was at the entrance of the bunker I couldn't help but have a bad feeling in my stomache.As I and a few others started our trek across the desolute expanse of the mojave searching for the outpost we immediately noticed it was getting dark quicker than we had hoped for. My long time friend Dan and I were searching for a house so that the team could take shelter. when we found one it was at about 11PM, The house was in horrible condition as it was missing a whole wall and its roof was caving in some areas.As we went inside for a further inspection we spotted three raiders inside by a couch who were telling eachother ways they've killed traveling merchants.These people were obviously monsters who deserved to die. I motioned for Dan to go around the other side of the house.Once he'd gotten into position I gave him the signal that we'd been taught in combat sims that meant to open fire on 3, once I gave him the signal it was only 3 seconds till would open fire onto them 1... 2... 3... the smell of burning flesh went through my helmets filter as we opened fire on them firing with such accuracy that could only be from years of training or in our cases hours of combat simulators experience. It only lasted a couple of seconds but it was the first real combat that i've experienced outside of the bunker.We went over to see what the raiders had on them and we were surprised as they had laser weaponry,the reason this was surprising was because laser weapons are hard to maintain and to find ammo for it in such a barren place would be no easy matter. I set aside my questions and left to gather the rest of the team as Dan was already searching the area for more raiders. After we finished our rest in the ruined house we set out to search and destroy the NCR outpost that had been causing trouble for our scouts to navigate around.Along the walk I couldn't help but to be filled with such wonder as this barren wasteland was filled with such amazing formations from the salt pits to the hills.As we were nearing the marker on the map we were told by the elder beforehand to watch for snipers as they had killed some of our scouts and we were to be as close to cover as possible as they were great marksman from what i've heard from older paladins. As we were nearing the NCR outpost I could see what seemed to be a figure on a large hill but ignored it as I facing the sun and it could be anything.
