They call me Honest Dan for a reason. That's exactly half of what Stockton agreed to pay me. Not one cap more, not one cap less.

Honest Dan is a caravan master hired by Old Man Stockton to investigate the disappearance of a caravan near the settlement of Covenant in 2287.


Honest Dan works for Old Man Stockton in 2287. During this time a caravan goes missing near a settlement called Covenant - among that caravan was Stockton's "daughter" Amelia Stockton. Stockton sends Honest Dan to the settlement to try and find the missing crew, but is met with the town denying that the caravan passed through.

  • PCIcon pc Playstation 4Icon ps4 Xbox OneIcon xboxone Honest Dan will disappear if one finishes the main quest first. However, you can still obtain Covenant as a settlement by killing everyone inside excluding Deezer and the cats. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc Playstation 4Icon ps4 Xbox OneIcon xboxone Honest Dan may turn hostile when entering the compound for no reason. Quest advances in incorrect order. This is likely due to the player wearing a power armor helmet equipped with the targeting HUD mod. A nearly identical situation occurs if one enters Virgil's cave under similar conditions. In that case, removing the helmet prior to entering and for the duration of the player's time in the compound appears to resolve this issue.[verified]
