Deathclaw warehouse (Rippers)


Lost Hills


Most cathedral NPCs give you only a small part of their dialogue. A good example is Viola, who has many lines that cannot be accessed. So it's hard to tell if actually any NPCs were completely removed.

Cut psykers:

  • Dominic - "A strange energy flares from his eyes"
  • Wiggup - "Small sparks of energy flow over his body" This is probably Wiggum.

Cut Cathedral members (no details)

  • Surf
  • Barracus

Super mutants

They may have been supposed for the Mariposa Military Base or the Master's Lair, it's not always quite sure.

  • Uthern, leader of the Super Mutants.
  • Rae, he might join you in your fight against the Master.

Random encounters

There are some MSG files for a type of random encounter that was never fully implemented: people from a nearby location who had lots of dialogue, depending on your rep there, could give you news or lead you to their base.

Vault 13

Unknown location

The Thinker Nightkins

Cut locations

Cut location content


  • A gang war in the Boneyard, with the Blades as a regular gang instead of a bunch of wimps and Tangler as a big bad boss of the Rippers (you can hear about them in some tell-me-abouts). Related quests to join the Blades, stop the gangs from attacking Adytum, and rescue Zimmerman's son (Jason, not Josh) from the Rippers.


Behind one of the broken goo-filled suspension tanks was a body of a big-headed alien. Near that was a desk with a note on it. The note had about every third letter taken out, but if you puzzled out what it said, you could figure out that it was an evacuation notice, signed by Dana Scully.Fallout Bible 9

The body has this description "This body might be some kind of genetic experiment."


  • GLOWCAGE.MSG - "It appears as though this cage contained lab animals for for testing. Somehow, the bars have been torn off."
  • GLWBOX.MSG - "This looks to be the footlocker of some guards."
  • GLOWDESK.MSG - a lock desk of papers
  • GLOWTABL.MSG - a table in a mess
