Water chip... hmm. Oh, those old Vault purifying control chips. Well, I'm sure I speak for the entire town when I say you won't find one here.

Martha Rastello is the second head of the Water Merchants[1] in 2161.


Martha Rastello apparently manages the affairs of the Water Merchants in the Hub, although the head of the Water Merchants is Daren Hightower. She is referred to as a master merchant.

Other interactionsEdit

She will tell the Vault Dweller that there is a water chip in Necropolis. Also, if the Vault Dweller is running out of time to retrieve the water chip, for 2000 caps she will commission a caravan of water merchants to deliver water to Vault 13, which will extend the time limit of the quest by 100 days. The Vault Dweller with a sufficient Barter skill can haggle her down to 1000 caps or even to 500.

Martha Rastello appears only in Fallout.


After handing in the water chip to Jacoren, it is possible to commission a second round of water caravans. Doing so will award 1000 XP, unmark the Find the Water Chip quest and attach a "days remaining" note to the Vault Dweller's Pip-Boy 2000. This will effectively reset the results of the Find the Water Chip quest; the citizens of Vault 13 will act as if the water chip has not been delivered and, after the time limit expires, the quest will end in failure.
