Was playing this again the other day, solo this time. I have a base in the middle of fucking nowhere, so to save time travelling from there when I set out, and also to keep my skills in of fighting from the bottom,. I usually when playing alone start afresh by suiciding so it will spawn me in the inhabited area. Then I'll scrape together a bow and a pickaxe and go looting. Anyway, the other day I did just that. There were a few player backpacks scattered around (normal near a spawn point, people keep suiciding to get a good spawn) and also a few rad animals nearby. I thought maybe one of the player backpacks could have been someone passing through who got killed by a mob, So I checked them. I was right! Got a big cache of gunpowder in one of them, and also some rad suit gear. I decided against putting on the rad suit stuff as the armour effect it has is negligible, and I didn't have any weapons to defend myself with so I'd rather look like a fresh spawn. Turns out this saved my life.
I immediately set off running in the direction of my base. About 20 yards later, I round a corner and hear a loud angry Scottish voice. "Open the fucking door ya cunt!" I hear the tail end of this sentence as I come into view of the man, who straight away aims his bow at me and starts pulling back the drawstring. I do the only thing I could possibly do at that point. Put away my rock and say "Please don't kill me." I don't know what it was that made him relent, but I think it was half the fact that I looked like I had nothing to rob, and also because I faked a Scottish accent when I said don't kill me, to try and make him think I was "like him" or something. Old telesales trick. Whatever it was, it worked. He loosened his bowstring and said
"Aw, awreet, I willnae kill ya."
"I'm gonna kill HIM! Open the fucking door ya bastard!" and he went back to stalking around a 1x1 he was laying siege to that had a furnace burning inside and the sound of footsteps coming from it.
"Fine by me, have fun!" and with that I scarpered off.
Also the other day I did the CLASSIC move of getting the mrs on the microphone pretending it was her playing on my account and wanting people to help her. She wasn't playing, it was me. I'd be naked with a rock. Of course when they get close, is when you whip out the shotgun. Fucking lol.
