Status Update: Not Dead. yay.
« on: July 11, 2017, 09:25:27 PM »
Good news, not dead.  Bad news, Vector nearly bit my left hand off.  I...uh...may still lose it. One of em was playing torpor and took out the melee guy in a single hit.  I raised to shoot, missed its head, and he came in.  It was either the hand or my neck so yeah, I made that choice. 

Big Boy's waiting on a good rainstorm or two or something because there's a lot of blight and we don't have a lot of water right now.  And I'm the only latent left in the area.  No more latents means no more need for my lil business.  Nor my side job.

I am so fucked.  I don't know what to do.

Crusaders are always recruiting, any medical knowledge you have they would value. Other than that find a good train track pick a direction and follow it until you get to an Enclave. I don't know enough about your area yet to help set you up with a location that will take you in. Even if I did, I don't have the cred to get you in even if I pointed you towards an Enclave.

Glad to hear you made it out alive, though not in one piece I guess. If you're looking for a place to stay you can always head over here to Portside, we could always use the medical knowledge. I think we still got a guy that does prosthetics, though he'll charge you up the ass for it. Just make sure you stay clear of RenCon territory if you do head over to here, they will string you up and dangle your Vector ass from a tree. Seriously, fuck those guys.

For starters you might want to give [this] guy a call over Ubiq. His handle is Chopshop and he deals in quality and affordable prosthetics--everything from basic commercial hand replacements to shoulder-mounted DARPA cyberarms with the governors removed. I'll vouch for the quality of his work, and he even offers payment in installments. A basic hand prosthetic shouldn't set you back too much, though he will charge extra for installing on a Latent.

Glad you made it, Code. Sorry to hear of your losses and best of luck with the recovery.

Everyone is talking prosthetics, but the hand might be saveable with physical therapy, assuming it got stitched up right and you don't lose it to infection. Both big ifs, I know, but I've seen and helped people recover from worse. That said, I'm not an expert, so you should consult one before you make a decision. I can certainly offer you advice on a useful training regimen, though.
