Welcome back ladies and gents, we finally made it to day 400. Now there is going to be a lot going on here in this last chapter. Not only do we have a small little walkthrough, but on top of that I am going to attempt to lay out how we need to play our cards in this episode in order to get the desired people to come with us in the end. Let's conquer this!
It opens up with a woman at the board where we find our friends' pictures. She appears to be talking to a person on the radio about our characters.
Still alive?! Ah, they're gonna be happy to get rescued! So how many are we talking about? - Man
1. Around five, I think. - Non-altering.
2. Does it matter? - Non-altering.
3. I'm not sure. - Non-altering.
4. . . . - Non-altering.
We find out a little bit about this person and a bit about why she is here. There is a community being built and they are attempting to rustle up survivors to populate it. Seems interesting. When we emerge from the loading scene the woman has found our friends' camp and plans on trying to get them to come back to her community. When she goes over to introduce herself she naturally receives a less than welcoming response.
She introduces herself as Tavia, with Wyatt quickly asking a question:
How did you find us? - Wyatt
1. I followed the smoke. - Non-altering, although this will lead more toward less people trusting you along with silence.
2. I found your note. - Non-altering, although this is the option to go with if you are looking for the most survivors possible.
3. It's what I do. - Non-altering, but this will lead directly to Tavia's comments about her being a scout.
4. . . . - I would avoid the silence responses if you want to get as many people to believe you as possible.
Ultimately the dialog you get here depends on how you acted within each specific character's chapter. So if you were honest the entire time with Leland in Bonnie's chapter, specific dialog will come up, same with Vince if you choose Justin.
Now the dialog in the epilogue follows the same general path, although the chat before Tavia will vary depending on the different people's experiences.
Following Bonnie commenting on Russell's either lack of trust, or lack of belief. - Bonnie/Russel
1. Then stay here if you want. - The "rude" answer which will help make people want to stay.
2. I'm not lying to you. - A good answer that shows Tavia's humility.
3. What will it take to convince you? - Another good answer, although not as sturdy as the one above.
4. . . . - Again, silence is not the best option for getting the people to come.
After some more dialog Becca will raise an objection to leaving:
Well, it could be a trap! What if they want to kill us? - Becca
1. We could have killed you already. - Leads to doubt and insecurity.
2. What are we going to do, eat you? - Scares the crap out of them.
3. You clearly outnumber me. - The best option for getting the group to come along.
4. . . . - Leads to doubt and insecurity.
Russell will be tough to win over no matter what you've done previously. You will get the dialog sequence where he tries to resist one last time during the raising of hands to go:
Russell still unsure. - Russell
1. It's a safe place. - Russell will not come.
2. You might find people you know. - The only way to get Russell to come along.
3. There are people of all ages. - Russell will not come.
4. It's your choice. - Russell will not come.
And the final question, from Vince:
How do we know this'll work out? - Vince
1. What's the alternative? - A neutral answer--if anyone is on the fence this may not benefit the cause.
2. You don't. - Slightly positive, but not as good as the word answer.
3. I give you my word. - The solid, finishing answer.
4. . . . - No good for the swing vote on people not sure whether or not they want to come.
And with that--400 Days is finished and we are left craving more. I hope you enjoyed the story, enjoyed the ride, and are going to gear up for Season 2. Until then walker killers.
