Detailed walkthrough

Living on the Edge is the first of two overarching Harbormen quests. It has no actual target itself but serves as a checklist for a number of different Far Harbor side quests instead.

Finishing any of these quests also marks the respective optional task of Living on the Edge as complete. Once Blood Tide or both Hull Breach and Safe Passage quests are completed, Living on the Edge will be considered finished as well and Teddy Wright will ask the player character to complete the island's ancient Rite of Passage to become accepted by the locals.

PCPC Sometime after completing the first quest for the town, Teddy Wright will continuously talk with you saying nothing but "You are a curious specimen". This can be fixed in a couple of ways:[verified]

  1. Having Old Longfellow as your companion is typically what fixes it due to his involvement with the conversation.
  2. Reloading a save.
  3. Leaving Far Harbor and then returning.
  4. Sleeping in a bed.
  5. Reloading the game.
