If the life of a courier was easy, it wouldn't pay so well. The Mojave Desert is a particularly dangerous spot to carry goods. Only the well-prepared and well-armed can survive trips through this wasteland, straddling the border of the New California Republic, and home to vicious, well-organized gangs who'd rather you did the scavenging so they can steal the fruits of your labor. The grimy, neon-lit beacon of New Vegas was one of the few major cities spared in the recent thermonuclear exchange that rewrote humanity's face and changed the planet. That would make it a welcome resting place, were it and the nearby dam not the vanguard of an invasion by the Roman-styled Legion marching from the East. Couriers aspire to a comfortable retirement with endless whisky and Nuka-Cola, not spending their final moments suffocating through a crucifixion.
