Why was Jalbert Brothers...

  • February 20

    So, I'm on another FO:4 playthrough and using Codsworth this time around.  Instead of following quests, it's more "survival style" but not foregoing saves..lol.  Anyway, we get to Jalbert Brothers and he makes a comment about "Someone went through a great deal of trouble to fortify this place.".

    So that got me wondering...why?

    There are three bodies there, all Children of Atom.  There is the one building with lots of radiation.  There is the grenade trap in the corner. 

    So who actually fortified the place.  And why?  There's not a lot there to consume over.  I would assume the CoA did it themselves for protection.  Maybe from the molerats?  But the location of the three CoA bodies tells me this could have been an outside hit and not just molerats. 

    So why do you think this meager junkyard in the middle of nowhere was fortified?  Who did it, and why?

    Ah a good question. Here's my take - you know how the COA have taken over the Kingsport Lighthouse settlement? This shows some organization of the cult and a willingness to branch out. So Jalbert was another prospective hub for the group...what with it's already hot bed of radiation in the facility and central location, it would have been an attractive target. But, the molerats got them...

    But idk about that last part. It seems like a few COA could handle the rats. Is there any sign of what killed them? Any notes left behind? I don't remember. 

    As a side, I always hit that place early on as I've procured a Nuka nade multiple times :) Always handy to have one of those on board.

    No notes or anything that I've ever come across.  I don't remember about the terminal as I never take hacking (or haven't thusfar).  Maybe need to get Nick to go hack it for me to read it and see if it says anything.

    Well - they are on Wikia: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Jalbert_Brothers_Disposal_terminal_entries

    It appears my guess was right but no explanation of their demise.
