You may not be so brave when you face the Ritual of the Mother Seed. Stronger souls than you have attempted it and lost their minds. Venture west to the great bog, and within you shall find the mother of all Punga Fruit. She stands taller than a man, and her vines guide our future. Collect her seeds, and kneel before her wisdom. Only then will you be ready to enter these sacred halls.Jimson

The sacred bog is a location in Point Lookout in 2277, reached via the sacred bog entrance on the westernmost side of the map.


The bog is a winding path populated with swamplurks, mirelurk hunters and swamplurk queens, all of which are found along the path towards the Mother Punga, a very large variant of the punga plant. Many punga plants can be found here, including 35 punga plants around the Mother Punga alone.

Mother Punga

Main article: Mother Punga

This is an enormous "seed," part of a huge wild bloom of the punga fruit. The seeds nestle on a pod in the recessed part of the fruit. The plant shudders and releases a puff of pollen, said to cause vivid hallucinations.[1]

  • Directly north of the sacred bog entrance is a burned out house with some loot.
  • The water inside the sacred bog has unusually low levels of radiation; drinking from most bodies of water inside the bog will heal 20 HP while only causing an increase of one unit of radiation. The exception is the body of water immediately prior to the Mother Punga plant, which has a normal level of radiation.
  • Upon entering this location, fast travel is not available until exit from the sacred bog entrance has been achieved.
  • The sacred bog has its own world map. This is because the world map of Point Lookout is too small to create a map marker when at the far end of the bog without going off the map.
  • The Lone Wanderer will still have hallucinations of Moira Brown's and Elder Lyons' dead bodies as well as Mister Break (the bog's version of Mister Burke), even if the characters have not been met beforehand.


The sacred bog appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.
