Tanagra Town is a location in the Mire region of Appalachia in 2102.


Once a normal town with some connections to the Nuka-Cola Corporation,[1] Tanagra Town went through a radical shift after the Great War, in the literal sense. Tanagra Town was moved above the treeline by the strangler vines that have been encroaching on the environment in the Mire. The strangler vine that moved Tanagra Town is a particularly huge family of stranglers and is holding over several hundred cubic meters of dirt and stone as well as the homes that are resting on top in one giant "island." The houses and everything on and in between are still accessible because of the strangler vines, it just takes some skilled climbing and precise jumps. This includes a cave cricket nest around a gold ore and crystal ore deposits with a buried mysterious statue face.

The nature of Tanagra town is a sight to behold and even a previously jaded citizen of Tangara was brought from the brink of suicide to keep living after the Great War.[2] Tanagra's extraordinary state also attracted the Appalachian Enclave, who erected a field laboratory in close proximity to Tanagra on the grounds of an old warehouse. However, sometime before 2086, the lab experienced a catastrophe that left all personnel missing. Scouts returning on a check-in reported the presence of bloodstains and recovered any sensitive intel to send back to Congressional bunker. Enclave command further recommended sending a burn team to further coverup their presence at Tanagra, though this never happened.[3]


Upon discovering Tanagra Town, the first thing to notice is the massive landmass located in the middle. This large structure is a tall mass of rock surrounded by vines. These vines twist around the structure and have a variety of objects stuck inside of them such as cars, houses, fences, appliances, etc. These objects create a staircase that the player character is able to climb up and reach the top of the structure. The entrance is on the southern lip of the crater, over a yellow school bus and eventually brings the player character to the top.

Shortly before the summit, the player character enters into the ruined mass, passing through a chamber that contains a buried cyclopean statue surrounded by numerous crystal and gold harvest nodes. It uses the same model as those from Lucky Hole mine.

On the ground, located in front of the vine structure, is a small shack and a small ruined house. There are trees surrounding the town and a rusted wire fence is located near the small shack. A random big creature will often spawn around the base of the tree, it can either be a deathclaw, fog crawler or mega sloth. More creatures were added to this spawn in Wastelanders.[clarification needed]

There is a locked door in one of the ruined buildings surrounding the tree that requires a key code to open it. The keypad was, at one point, unpowered and unopenable on release. As of patch, the keypad in the ruined building works. The code to the keypad is 748250, learned from a terminal entry at the Whitespring bunker.[3] Inside is an Enclave field laboratory (Remote Lab 1.2) with various detritus, a chance for plans for Enclave equipment and a single note.

Behind the scenesEdit

Graffiti can be found here which reads "Darmok + Jalad," a reference to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Darmok." The name Tanagra is derived from the same episode.
