    "while not the most technologically advanced faction out there, it still is the one with the least guilt on your conscience, and interactions with the other factions do not affect them making it possible to side with them regardless. this ease of access and moral high ground has them pegged as the best of the fallout 4 factions in my book."

    "yeah, not the strongest faction of the bunch but at least their cause is a noble one. still, don't expect them to be the best of the fallout 4 factions in terms of gameplay support."

    "as someone who isn't a fan of slavery in any medium, this was one of the hardest fallout 4 factions to side with. not to mention the stinger as to the true identity of their leader. yikes."
