Detailed walkthrough

The widow is in the small shack with the brahmin pen just southwest of the sheriff's office. If she is talked to about her plight one can either kick her out like as instructed by the sheriff, or one can pay the $120 of back rent she owes. If the rent is paid back 1500 XP will be received as a reward, along with 25 karma. However, if she is evicted, $100 is also given, but at the cost of 25 karma.


A level of at least ten is required to take the quest from Sheriff Marion.
