I've joined several games on the Roland rescue mission ("A Dam Fine Rescue"), and:
some times Roland is rescued in Friendship Gulag instead of in Bloodshot Ramparts
What determines this outcome? Is it randomized for each game? Does it involve a plot decision I missed?
A Dam Fine Rescue has two outcomes, based on your performance during the W4R-D3N fight.
Destroy W4R-D3N before the barge that Roland mentions arrives and picks the W4R-D3N up?
You will rescue Roland then and there and will not need to make a trip to the Friendship Gulag.
If you fail to do so, however...
You will need to make a detour to the Friendship Gulag to rescue him.
Note that the first outcome merely circumvents the requirement of the second outcome - the story will play out the same way once the requirements of the second outcome have been resolved if you have to do so.
(Note: I have actually never failed to destroy the W4R-D3N, so I can't say if there's extra story bits to the second outcome inside the spoiler location.)
So, I accidentally left my game running in friends only overnight. Then, a rather irritating friend of mine came in with his level 35 Commando and finished from A Dam Fine Rescue to Rising Action,leaving me underleveled, gear-wise. Is this fixable or am I up some sort of creek without a bladed Jakobs sniper rifle?

SPOILERS! This quest is right after a major story event near what seems to be the end of the game, so please don't read the rest of the question or any answers if you'd like to remain in the dark. I'll use spoiler tags, but I can't vouch for answers :) Okay, so... After Roland is killed by Jack, Mordecai gives an optional quest to tell other major characters in Sanctuary that Roland... Jack killing his dog). What is he supposed to say here?

Possible Duplicate: What determines when you do a finishing move? Can you activate the finishing moves at any time like when you stab your sword completely through someone or do these happen at random?
Since the AI in Civilization 5 are, as their name suggests, artificial, that means that all their actions are determined by numbers and formulas. That would include the diplomacy between the AI and the player. So what is the formula that determines the AI's view of the player? For instance, I found this thread on the Civilization fanatics forum that details how the "warmonger" part.... To put that in comparison a declaration of friendship gives +35 diplo points. So what other formulas can be taken from the XML files to determine the overall diplomatic calculation?
Possible Duplicate: What determines when you do a finishing move? I have a dual enchanted daggers character and I can do even 30x damage when attacking hidden from behind. Unfortunately to trigger a finishing move animation I can only do with single unenchanted dagger. On top of that, when I fight with dual daggers I've never seen a finishing move. Why is that? Any idea? Cheers!
