The rocky cave (also known as Virgil's laboratory) is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287. Virgil has chosen this cave as his refuge, as it is deep within the Glowing Sea and out of the Institute's grasp.
Layout[edit | edit source]
The cave entrance is a small cavity in a larger rock structure that opens up to a wider passage. At the end of the passage lies an opening, guarded by turrets, to a chamber that has been furnished with laboratory equipment and a small living quarters.

- The two turrets and protectron inside the cave are not hostile to the player character unless provoked.

- Outside the cave is a sleeping deathclaw.
