Collecting Holotags is a repeatable quest in Fallout 3.


The Keeper of the Scrolls – High Scribe Elizabeth Jameson – must pay for the collection of any holotags outsiders find, due to the chapter's lack of resources to accurately account for their losses in the field.


After gaining access to The Citadel, the Brotherhood of Steel's main headquarters in the Capital Wasteland, you will find a woman in A Ring named Scribe Jameson. She is the keeper of the scrolls at the Citadel, which means it's her responsibility to record the actions of the Brothers, including their deaths. After speaking to her, she will tell you to bring her any Brotherhood of Steel holotag you may find on your journeys.

Brotherhood of Steel holotags can be found when searching the corpse of a fallen Brother. If you kept these holotags, you can give them to Scribe Jameson, who will thank you for bringing her the news. If you want to find more holotags, you can search the bodies of any dead Brotherhood members, who can be found around the GNR building plaza, near the Washington Monument, The Citadel, inside the Arlington Library and other places.

Scribe Jameson will pay you 100 caps and 25 XP for every holotag you bring her, and additionally she promises that from time to time she will be able to give you "something a bit more interesting," alluding to the Brotherhood's ongoing technological research. You can return to her as often as you wish.

  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes after the initial holotags you give to Scribe Jameson, she will no longer take any holotags. The dialogue box gives no option for exchanging the tags. She simply asks you over and over again if you want to hear the story, never triggering the exchange dialogue box. This can be corrected by removing the tags from your inventory, engaging Scribe Jameson with her story dialogue, then retrieving the tags and speaking to her a second time.
