Figure out what Denom did to the crops was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.


Azkee is worried about the crops. They're unnaturally large, and he's concerned that Denom might have done something to "improve" the fields which might ultimately prove detrimental to the Ciphers.[1]

Character type completion breakdown

  1. Science Boy - Use a Geiger counter on the container of special fertilizer and determine that it's got a moderate amount of radioactive residue in it.
  2. Charisma Boy - If the player is skilled in both deception and persuasion/intimidation (Persuasion/Average, Deception/Average) he will be able to tell that Denom is withholding information about the situation and get a confession out of him.
  3. Stealth Boy - Break into the storage shed by picking the lock (Lockpick/Average) or by stealing the key from Denom (Steal/Average). Discover the empty barrel of fertilizer with the glowing residue. If the player character knows the soil is radioactive, they can confront Denom with this evidence.
