I thought I was going into the library, but then it was actually some underground tunnel, which a lifelong love of horror movies have taught me to avoid. It's Darwinian to have this aversion to being trapped underground, in the dark. I'm alive today only because my ancestors knew this also.
Upon entering this tunnel system, I almost bolted right away because there was a Supermutant. Previously, their kind have broken my spine whenever we've met. Altogether the supermutants have led to me watching about a dozen slow motion movie clips of my lifeless corpse sinking to the ground. They are the reason I learned the very important lesson between 'quicksave' and 'hard save'. I normally treat them as a harbinger of death.
However, I've recently learned how to effectively mod my armor and weapons by finding armor/weapons with mods and then crafting 'standard' versions of those mods. When you put a standard mod on something, the fancy mod will drop into your inventory so that you can use it on a different weapon even if you don't have the crafting know-how or materials to make one. Also, I cha-chinged on XP.
