This mad dude Pavel, he done made himself a dungeon and called himself Svlad
. This questline is labeled under the humorus side and is an excuse for a quest with a medival rpg feel.
..Afer the bomb some parts of the waseland was less populated then others, and some less socialized. some of these drifed back into the olden ways(medival social hirarchy) in terms of tool use and labor/buildings styles and all. The event starts when you come across a bombed librairy. After exploring the librairy you find only the horror and some parts of filosofy section has survived! Particularly marquii de sade.
You find the ajectant village has been built up around the post apocalyptic rubble in a differnt style then the librairy(post war tech), wich is the only pre war building compleetly standing around.(It would be soo damn cool if you licnced some audio books for this quest,f.eks some rickety tapes of marqui and alister crowly, for the dungeon to come,)
The sory is: in a world where no filosofy retained, his guy Pavel found the librairy, thought himself to read wih a ABC on a compuer there and went through the literaure. Now being the only smart guy around he formed a village with struggelers and it grew to a town.
You find the small city very ordered and functional in a world otherwise of rubble, and it argues the strong points in facist fiolosofy lets say. You do some quests for Svlad, and in the town you meet a 'savy !exited! cyberpunk filantropist explorer' that has come across the place. He stands out, and has allso just got here, and is doing some work around the "palace"where svlad lives
As u finish some quests for Svlad(using sword and shield u get bonus from svlad as he dosent want people affiliated with him to use guns, they are impersonal killing tools), he expounds on his dark filosofy a little,your conversation options are limited and all start with err, and hmm,, like he has the upper hand and is darkly intelectually posessed from his studies, and the obvious sucsess in actualy making a society work.
Every time you get back, the situation gets a litle more dark for the cyber-filantropist. one time he is in the tavern when u come back He tells u of a dungeon svlad has, and even the girl he is in love with has been taken there after a while, only cuz they had an open and cool relationship including sex. u get to see this take shape as u talk to the guy every time you return to the village from questing. svlad starts seeing 'filly' as a threat to the system. as you progress you learn more about the dark sides of the village, get to see some dark stuff in the upper part of svlads abode. He is torturing beautifull wimen while quoting books and such.
the last time you return from questing( killing a mutated small lizard/dragon in he zoo sewers wih sword, that has eaten some kids of the village, ) Filly:blond dreadded side cut filantropist, is in a cage next to Svlad. He is sitting cross legged in cool hippy clothes keeping his zen and smile listening to a walkman with an Alan Watts tape. "it keps me okay" He says with a smine. He got in an argumet over filosofy with Svlad, and starts charmingly expounding about the interconectedness of all things, the parts svlad doesent see, as he in mid conversation suddenly gets a death sentance. Since he cant tell finish his tale, he hurriedly tells you the location of where the other librairies he's come across are, where the books on Posivive synergetic filosofy he's found are, and that svlad's real name is Pavel, he gets really stressed out as he 'engages trade' to give you the allan watts tape, he asks for painkillers. you can reply "wouldent you rather have a gun?" if you choose to give him a really good one+knife and some med pacs he has a chanse in the coming event of his public impaling. You have to watch as he fights or dies. if you give him good enough stuff he gets out
If you search for the librairies before you engage Svlad's medival dungeon crawl, you get other cool positive filosofical books, that improve your talking points with svlad as you infiltrate his dungeon. These are audio books with cool filosofical points you can listen to as you explore, or you can jump to the end, and you get the talking points. You can choose not to explore like this, but if you do, as you confront him at the end of the level, and are ready to destroy his feel bad points. now you can get Pavel as a companion.
The dungeon is filled with all types of crazy, bhudda statue with satanic messages of tranuility, La'veye's "fight for your right, only he strong survive.. "audio playing. trapdoors, torture chambers, people being sacrifised to statues with sharp teeth(somthing found in he cartoon department of th librairy), tortured s&m freaks in bandages that look like mummies to fight, something like the start of baldurs gate 2:shadows of amn. You have to open the first door with a sword and place your gear on the outside. There are healing potions(dungeon spesific loot drops) that taste likes "yuch" your companions say, and oher D&D spoofs throughout
Epiluge: if you save filly, he shows up later with the gun you gave him, and with a quest to find rare psychedelic ingreedients for a mixture that increese your carisma by 1, and as you find the last ingreedient he gets bitten by a snake and sadly dies saying "that is the destiny of an exploring filantropist" . .
but hey, you've still got svlad!
