An entrepreneur calling himself the Radscorpion Earl has got into the business of milking radscorpion venom. The trouble is his reckless failure to securely contain his specimens; many a wastelander has been stung by his growing collection. The player's more agile dwellers (5+ Agility) can be sent out armed with plasma pistols to deal with him before the problem gets worse.
The quest takes place in a randomized medium-sized factory building, usually with four floors. Enemies include raiders, in groups from two to five, and many radscorpions, mostly in packs of three. There is one glowing radscorpion accompanied by two standard variants, which when killed will satisfy an optional objective. There is no significant loot that is guaranteed to spawn, although rare junk or legendary junk may be found on occasion.
- One common junk item
- One Nuka-Cola Quantum (optional) in the glowing radscorpion room
- Possible theme recipe fragment
- "First we gotta raise bugs, now Dwellers to deal with? This job stinks!"
- "Earl ain't paying me enough to put up with this!"
|Opening dialogue||Dweller response||Character response|
|Howdy folks, they call me the Radscorpion Earl!
At least they did, till you made a mess of my business!
|Consider this a sting, Earl.||Look, I'll pay you. Just leave me alone!|
|Peddle your poison somewhere else, scoundrel!||I haven't got any more, thanks to you! Just take this and go!|
|You've been caught in the Pincers of Justice!||What does that even mean? Get outta here! I'll pay you to leave!?|
|Try another line of work, like farming.||Your business advice is as lousy as your attitude! Here, leave me alone!|
