The Lantern is a location in the wasteland occupied by the Enlightened.


The Lantern was founded by the Enlightened some time after the Great War, after they had split off from the Cult of the Mothman, and left Lucky Hole Mine during the exodus. Wise Charles the Forewarned led them far away from Appalachia, to a place he envisioned as being "a beacon of safety and home for those that had heard the Truth and been Enlightened," where they founded their church.[1]

It is a place of study for the Enlightened, and a delegation left from here for the Mothman Equinox, as they went on a pilgrimage to the "Wise One's homeland".[2] The location is also said to have a shining light and glow.[3][4]


The Lantern is mentioned only in Fallout 76, introduced in the Night of the Moth update.


  1. Exodus
  2. Vault Dweller: "Where do you come from?"
    Interpreter Clarence: "We have ventured from our place of study, the Lantern, far from here. During the time of the Equinox, myself and a group of Observers make the perilous trip to the Wise One's homeland."
    (Interpreter Clarence's dialogue)
  3. Vault Dweller: "Where is 'the Lantern'?"
    Interpreter Clarence: "Far from here. Should you ever feel the pull of its light, your journey will take you there."

  4. Observer Errol: "I miss the Lantern's glow. My hunts often send me far from home, but never like this. I can barely see its shine from here."
