The quest line may have been short and pretty lackluster but at the end of the day it's the hardest decision I've had to make in the game so far. I'm a big BoS fan so having to choose a side between two non-ideal candidates for the leader of the Appalachian chapter has been somewhat frustrating. Obviously for those who completed it already we know we can't choose a side yet but the next part will likely have us making those final decisions.
Paladin Rhamani has good morals and values but her willingness and lack of hesitation to betray her oath in the pursuit of her own interests (which she claims is for the betterment of Appalachia) has me worried she's a little to "dictatorish" and will let her passion get in the way of rational thinking and the harsh reality of the Wasteland. The tipping point for me was selfishly puting the structural integrity and lives of the BoS members on the line by sabotaging communication with the Californian chapter. Overall I'm just not a fan of having one person be in charge of everything this chapter of the BoS has cause then there is no one to make sure they take responsibility for their actions (the whole reason she wants to sabotage everything in the first place). I believe her intentions are good and she'd be a great leader but certainly not for the BoS.
On the other hand Knight Shin is so close-minded and paranoid that he can't see that while rebuilding a form of structure in an apocalypse is important that there is still more to life. The BoS can't get anywhere and grow if they only focus on their main mission. Spreading influence and making allies is crucial for any chance of rebuilding any form of structure outside the organization. Under his leadership I feel like the Appalachian BoS would be strong but very closed off and weakend just like the original chapter. I just don't think he's ready for the power and position of Paladin.
Especially after re-reading A Canticle for Leibowitz, I'm even more hesitant to handover dangerous technology to various groups of people cause I believe the Brotherhoods cause to break the cycle of humanity destroying itself is noble. Unfortunately the question is can they properly restructure themselves before they collapse before they can complete their mission. Even though it's probably gonna be short and disappointing I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to the final part of this story. Hopefully they flush all the characters out more so we can really see where their head is at.
Please feel free to talk about how you felt the BoS was handled in this DLC in regards to the characters and your choices. Ad Victoriam!
