Whether you're in a bombed out old Super-Duper Mart, a high-tech Vault-Tec assembled Vault or even covered in the damp, radioactive water whilst surrounded by unsightly mirelurks, you want to look your best. When you look your best, you feel your best. When you feel your best, you exude a confidence...
People want to talk to you AND are more likely to have a lovely disposition towards you. Maybe they'll drop a hint or two that you could talk their prices down or barter with them in a trade that really only benefits you. Either way, it all comes down to Charisma!
Charisma will only get you so far, though. You'll still need to work on how much loot you can carry by lifting weights and getting that Strength up. Don't forget to test your eyesight and find out whether or not you're actually able to differentiate good from evil by working on your Perception skills. And, obviously, you'll absolutely need to get that heart rate up if you're planning on wandering the wastes, plus you'll be carrying so much loot from all your smooth-talking that if you don't have the Endurance, you're gonna end up on the wrong side of a Super Mutant's foot.
Working on these attributes will provide you success in life both inside the Vault...and out!
Next week, we'll continue finding out what makes all of us S.P.E.C.I.A.L! Thank you, Vault-Tec, for helping me learn more about me!
