Andale, The National Archives, Arefu | Main locations Fallout 3 Guide



- A very interesting miniquest is tied to this location. Once you've arrived at Andale explore two houses, occupied by the Smith's and the Wilson's. You can talk to the owners of the houses if you want to. After that locate a house owned by Harris. The old man will advise you to leave Andale immediately, because of the stranger occurrences in the area. If you want to find out what the secret of both families is, check basements of their homes or an abandoned shack (screen). You can break into each room with your lockpicking skill or you can use a key. The easiest way to obtain the key is to explore bedrooms of each of two houses, however you can also acquire a key from Megaton - Moriarty's saloon. You would have to gain access to a small supply room. The most dangerous way is to steal one from the members of both families.

Go inside one of the basements or explore the shack. You're going to make a shocking discovery. Try leaving the room and you're going to be surrounded by both families. You've got several choices here. You can ally yourself with the cannibals and allow them to continue capturing wastelanders and eating them. If you choose this outcome, it would be wise to betray Harris by saying that he was the one who wanted you to see this. Linda Smith would also give a very unusual gift - a strange meat pie.

If you decide to fight the cannibals, make sure that you focus on eliminating enemies equipped with more powerful weapons. Once you've killed members of moth families go back to the old man Harris and talk to him. You'll find out that he has decided to raise the children on his own.
