Sure, the Desert Rangers may want to ensure peace and safety, but not everyone’s so idealistic. Some might be your allies, and others, your enemies. And yet, more just want to use you as much as you want to use them. Your decisions in dealing with the factions of the Wasteland will determine the fate of its people, as well as your own.
