Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Get more food to the Ciphers was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.


When Denom's irradiation of the crop fields is discovered, the Ciphers will refuse to eat any more of the tainted fruits and vegetables. Azkee will ask the PC to go to Hoover Dam and negotiate with one of the caravans there to have food shipped to the village.

Character type completion breakdownEdit

  1. Science Boy, Stealth Boy, Combat Boy - Bring the Ciphers a GECK from the Nursery.
  2. Charisma Boy - Travel to Hoover Dam and negotiate the shipment of food to Mesa Verde with one of the caravans (Barter). Otherwise, if an alliance forms between the Brotherhood and the Ciphers, and the Circle of Steel is not in charge, the Brotherhood will share their supplies with the Ciphers. Or, just bring the Ciphers a GECK from the Nursery.[1]
