Quest variant A
Upon entering the first room, the vault dwellers may be attacked by a group of mole rats, sometimes with a broodmother. Defeat them and head into the next room, where yet another group of mole rats will be encountered; the same applies once passing through the elevator into the first room on the second floor. Upon entering the second room there are a couple of settlers; speaking to them and responding with "We ain't squares, daddy-o. We're as cool as the breeze." will earn the group two Nuka-Cola Quantums. In the room immediately behind them is another settler, who will again engage in dialogue; the option chosen will alter what the party is given.
Although the quest is complete at this stage, the party can head up to the third floor, where there is another group of mole rats and a group of raiders that can be fought.
Quest variant B
The player is likely to encounter radscorpions, radroaches (sometimes irradiated radroaches), and raiders on this variant, with the occasional raider leader. When they come across the first three friendly ghoul settlers, if the player selects "Hey, always “cool to be Ghoul”, you know what we mean?", they are rewarded with two Nuka-Cola Quantum. The second set of friendly ghouls will give the player the choice between a rare weapon, a rare outfit, stimpacks, or rare junk. If the player is doing the level 50 variant of this quest, they may get legendary rewards from the ghouls instead of rare items.
Quest variant C
On this variant, the player will face raiders, radscorpions, and mole rats. The player may also come across a raider leader, a mole rat broodmother, and an irradiated radscorpion. If one comes across the irradiated radscorpion, keep the health of the dweller that is being attacked high. Lower level versions of this quest may only have radroaches and glowing radroaches. Once one comes across the librarian, if they select "Remain quiet," the player is given some Nuka-Cola Quantum. The second librarian will give them the choice of a weapon, an outfit, stimpacks, or junk as a reward. These rewards can be rare or legendary depending on the quest level requirement.
Quest variant D
This variant is mostly raiders and mole rats as enemies. Higher-level versions may have radscorpions and raiders instead. When the player reaches the room with the settlers, it turns out they are three raiders who are looking to retire. "Hey there, Dwellers. No need to be alarmed. We're not Raiders anymore. We're retired." "A bunch of us decided to earn a living the honest way." The player is given three dialogue options:
- "Just keep your hands where we can see them."
- "Good for you! Honest work is way better than raiding!"
- "You're lucky we aren't here to kill you."
The player is then rewarded with a lunchbox.
In the last few rooms, the former raider leader is waiting, and the player is given a choice between a rare weapon, a rare outfit, stimpaks, or a rare crafting material as a guaranteed reward. If one is doing a higher-level version of the quest, the player may get legendary items instead, especially if the level requirement is 50. Legendary plasma rifles are typically rewarded if the player chooses the weapon option on level 50 quests.
|Opening dialogue||Dweller responses||Character responses|
|Hey there, hip cats! Welcome to the coolest settlement around.
We rule, everyone else drools. You dig?
|The only thing we “dig” is dirt. With a shovel. Because that's what digging means.||Ouch. So uptight! Maybe you should just mosey on?|
|We ain't squares, daddy-o. We're as cool as the breeze.||Now that's the story, morning glory! Here. A little memento from us.|
|You're idiots and this settlement is doomed because of you.||Whoa, whoa. Mellow out, there, hip cat. Why don't you take a walk?|
|Vault Dwellers, huh? Having a blast in our little homestead?
You Dwellers are cool, so we're thinking we do some trading, dig?
|We can always use some weapons.||Righteous. Here's one of my personal favorites. Catch you cats next time!|
|We need new outfits. The snazzier the better.||Oh, I hear that. Wear it with pride!|
|We wouldn't mind a few pick-me-ups.||I hear ya, daddy-o, I hear ya. Here you go.|
|How about some junk? We're feeling crafty.||Suppose we can let some parts go. Enjoy.|
|Hey there, smoothskins! We didn't think you'd make it.
Not many people would stop by a settlement run by us Ghouls.
|Just keep your distance, Ghouls, and everything will be fine.||Yeah, yeah. We know. Don't bother us. We won't bother you.|
|Hey, always “cool to be Ghoul”, you know what we mean?||Ha! You're all right, smoothskins. Here. Take this.|
|Agh! Zombies!||We're NOT zombies. Just leave!|
|Easy there, smoothskins. We know what we look like, but we're peaceful.
We're happy to trade with your Vault. Let's send you back with a nice gift.
|Weapons. Anything you can spare.||All right. Here's what we've got.|
|We need some outfits. Something stylish.||You got it.|
|Medicine if you've got it.||Here's what we can spare.|
|Crafting supplies. All the junk you got.||Sounds good, smoothskins.|
|Shh! Keep your voice down. This is a library!||We were told this was a settlement.||A settlement in a library! Now keep quiet while you're here.|
|(Remain Silent)||Good. Glad to see you can behave.|
|WHAT? WE COULDN'T HEAR YOU BECAUSE WE'RE TOO LOUD!||I hate you. So much.|
|Glad you could make it. This settlement is dedicated to preserving books.
But we know a Vault is looking for more than just knowledge.
|Got any weapons in this place?||I think I have something that could work.|
|We need some new outfits.||All right. How about this?|
|Got any medical supplies?||Here. Take this with you.|
|Wouldn't mind some junk for crafting.||Here you are, then.|
|Hey there, Dwellers. No need to be alarmed. We're not Raiders anymore. We're retired.
A bunch of us decided to try earning our living the honest way.
|Just keep your hands where we can see them.||Hey, we get it. But we're the good guys now. Honest.|
|Good for you! Honest work is way better than Raiding!||Well, it's not as fun, but it's clean. Thanks for understanding. Take this.|
|You're lucky we aren't here to kill you.||I think we're all lucky that's the case. Excuse us.|
|I miss the life of raiding, sometimes. Lead a whole gang for a lot of years.
But this settlement stuff ain't bad. And we're pretty good at trading. Who would've known?
|How about some weapons?||Ha! How about this? Served me well way back when.|
|Got any outfits?||Yeah. I think I have just the thing for you.|
|Stimpaks, if you got them.||Wouldn't leave home with it! Here.|
|Got any junk? We have things we need to craft.||Yeah, I think I got something.|
