Detailed walkthrough

The Chosen One receives this quest from Lara, the leader of a small gang in the Den West Side. They want the Chosen to go over to the East Side, to the church, and talk to the guards to find out what is inside the church.

The Chosen One needs to bluff their way through the guard Tyler and then simply look around in the room. For this, the Chosen One must pass a Speech check or have a Strength of 8. If the initial Speech check is failed, it is possible to try again after about an hour, this time with one of the dialogue options that doesn't require Speech.

Talk to Lara to receive her next quest, Get permission from Metzger for gang war.


  • 500 XP for getting past the guards, 700 XP if Lara hasn't been talked to yet, and 300 XP if the Chosen One is a slaver
  • 500 XP for examining the crates
  • $200 by talking to Lara


If Metzger is dead, the entire gang will only talk about their uncertain future and no longer be interested in Tyler's gangs' activities. However, they will not turn hostile.
