Good evening folks, I saw that nobody has been porting a Fallout Doomsday AAR. That's a pity, I need to solve it. I did two brilliant games but now I need a challenge.

It's easy if you start with a faction that has tanks. Former USA, NCR... Or power units like the various BoS chapters. But what if you do not have such a luck?

Time to see it, folks. This time I'll play with the evil guys. True to Caesar...
 
The beginning

Here we are folks. Time to start this adventure!

The year is 2245. In the lands of the former state of Arizona, Commonwealth of Four States,a tribal but nevertheless somehow developed society was thriving. It was led by a former Follower of the Apocalypse and scribe, specialist in anthropology and linguistic, who was known as Edward Sallow. Now he is the "son of Mars", called Caesar by his people. They sticked themselves to the values of the ancient Roman Empire. This is the Legion!







In 2245, what remained of humanity was coming out from their shelters. Raiders were infesting the surface, preying to survive. Horribly-mutated beasts, ghouls and mutants were harassing everyone. There was only an option: arming and getting ready to bring with force Caesar's banner on the wastes.







It was also time to send spies all over the continent to know what other people were going to do.



Then Caesar went out, giving his speech, showing his true nature.







In the meantime, wars were starting. In what was rumored to be the last remnant of the old USA, a sect declared its independance.



Somebody tried to go against the marauders in the wastes, but they just saw how it actually was harsh.



In the meantime, a strange figure arrived in the main camp. Caesar decided to avoid threats, even if so far.


The usual Guild's Roundup took place



Another extravagant man approached. He was talking all the time about a game. But if somebody values those "cards", why not taking advantage?



Some entartainment was still important



Building its own army requires men. So some legionnaires are sent out to "recruit" people… it was time to get to Broken Hills, in Nevada.



In the meantime, the Junkers joined the war in FUSA, seeking the opportunity to take out a neighbour.



Then 1st of April arrived, with its tradition based in the Old World way of life



The wastelands were starting to go in turmoil...



So it was time to gather more men. This time NCR was chosen



But then, when everything was going as usual, something happened. A camp was attacked, and the majority of the slaves was freed. This marked the beginning of a cold war with the NCR



As a consequence, other territories were raided. Nevertheless, the annual market paid its dividends.







So it began. The wastes became hot. Civilization was to be brought.

Could the screens be a bit bigger? I can't read events' text.
Strangely enough, it reduced the size. It should have been 1366x768 (the resolution of my screen). I'll try to fix it asap

Edit: it looks like that the forum reduces the images. How this? :/

I'd recommend uploading them to a third party image hosting site, like Imgur or some reasonable alternative, and linking from there.
Thank you! That's what I did but it still reduces the resolution. The only way looks like putting links.

I used to go with TinyPic since I was a teenager, but now it got closed. So bad :(

Fixin' it tomorrow or tonight, later

Starting the expansion: southwar

Note: I fixed the pictures in the first entry. Hopefully they should be clearly visible now! Tell me if it is not.

So I'm back guys! I plan to keep at least 1 update per week. I've got a huge reserve, if I can't play the game!

The Wastes started to boil: a first, big stack, was reported in Saint Johns area, to the North. The troops were moved immediately there.



Then, other observers noticed disturbances in the South. Caesar, knowing that going North was very dangerous, chose to cross what, once, was the Mexican border.



The attack was ordered for dawn



The superiority of numbers and the valiant leadership of Caesar meant victory



Then, they moved towards Caborca





As the battles will not Always prove to be so easy, raids were ordered. The Hub was a nice "victim".





The battle for Hermosillo begun. This time, the local warlords were better organized.





But Caesar is triumphant



Then the expansion continued up to Juárez, where there were the local descendants of the old criminals.



Seeing the Legionnaires, they fell back to El Paso



But the war was also ravaging in the South.





To the North, some movements were tried. As aforedmentioned and forecasted, there were a lot of bandits...







The South was liberated



But then, the Marauders tried a counteroffensive, only to be stopped



The Revenge came immediately, and it was harsh









So we get to a special day in the Wastes: the day it all started, when the bombs fell. It was a day of hope, as even if this world was cruel, there still was someone alive!

Images work as they should, and the AAR itself is good and light - text is both climatic, and short.

Thanks mate. The scribes are working as they should - no time for storytelling!

Oh: please sorry for the English form, I am Italian! Feel free to correct me! :)
 
Marauder pains

Good morning everyone! I'm in my bed, stranded with flu, so what a better time to give you an update about Caesar?

After the day it all started, another important day happened: Halloween. An Old World remnant, it was rumored to be a celebration coming from the old "Celts", a population deeply related to the Roman history.



The party lasted a few though: our positions in Nogales were under siege



Reinforcements arrived, to turn the tide on our favor







In this scorched world, Manpower was Always an issue. Other raids were staged



To eradicate the threat of Marauders in the North, Hermanas was attacked.





Another pain was coming from the Yuma area. A detachment was sent



But the marauders were quicker and Nogales was left to avoid useless casualties



Problems were also growing in El Paso, taken by a raider group
