You are truly (hic) my bestest friend in this whole (hic) cursed world.

Karl is a former Modoc inhabitant, who fled to the Den from his farm. He can be found in Mom's Diner in Fallout 2.

BackgroundEdit

An incredibly filthy drunk, Karl spends his days moping in the back of Mom's Diner, begging passers-by for money to fuel his drinking habit. He used to be a fine, upstanding farmer from Modoc, who worked a farm to the northeast of the town. However, one day he began seeing glowing ghosts in the fields, who took his crops and cattle. Eventually, he couldn't take the stress and ran away from the farm. He is presumed dead by Modoc citizens.

QuestsEdit

Go to the Den and tell Karl it's alright to come back home: Once the Chosen One discovers the Ghost Farm, he is sent by Jo to find Karl and make sure that the Slags didn't draw him up by his innards. Report back to Jo once one finds him so Modoc and the Slags can make peace. Hurry though, because it might be too late to report back to Modoc before they kill the Slags.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

It is possible to upset Karl, whereupon he refuses to talk to the player character about "his story". The Chosen One will need to give him a beer (needs to be in your inventory), but he will pass out subsequently. When he wakes up after a few hours, Karl will be more talkative.

InventoryEdit
