Confessor Cromwell's Terminal

Note: This terminal is located on the cornered desk in the office on the second floor of the Children of Atom. It can be hacked (very easy).


Welcome, Confessor. May you walk in the Glow...

Atom's Nucleus


People often innocently ask me "Confessor, why do you worship a bomb?" Like curious children, they come to me with questions about the most visible and perhaps controversial aspect of our faith. The innocent among us hear my sermons before the great symbol, the see us bathe in the waters, and they wonder if it is danger we seek -- a suicide pact, perhaps. And while you may be tempted to answer their curiosity with anger, my gentle Children of Atom, you must never do so.

The core of Atom's philosophy teaches us peace. That we must educate the curious and work towards alleviating their ignorance, that we must teach them to accept the glory of the Division of the past and to seek the glory of the Division that is to come.

Teach them, my Children, teach them how the miserable rotten meat of their bodies will give birth to countless lives at the time of Division. Teach them that they should not mourn the world that has passed, but praise and celebrate those that have already been Divided. Teach them the blessing, the glory, that the peace of our communion and the satisfaction that can be found in our blessed work.

Teach them, my Children. Teach them well, and in the teaching, find your peace and your place. This is the core of Atom's message to us. Spread. Grow. Communicate.

Go in peace, my precious Children. Walk in Atom's Glow.

Treatise On Atom's Second Coming


What is Atom?

Atom is light. Power.

Atom is change.

Atom is the cleansing that brings order to chaos.

Atom is purity.

Atom is peace.

Atom is hope.

Bringing About The Division


I often ask myself if the time is right for the second Division. Here, in Atom's blessed village, are we truly ready for his coming? Have I properly prepared my people for the moment in which his great altar cracks open and reveals to us his glory? I am but a man, who am I to bring these people to glory? Who am I to seek to cause the division?

Moriarty's Terminal

Note: This wall terminal can be found on the wall in the office on the first floor of Moriarty's Saloon. It can be accessed by hacking (average) or obtaining the password.


Moriarty's Property Only!
Motivational Phrase of the Month: "When the chips are down, it means the Brahmin is empty."




Jericho's been a bad boy. I heard all about him and Jenny Stahl. Tried to slip her some of the old gun barrel while she's yelling no. He's lucky the "gun" didn't go off or that would have given the Stahl clan something to crap their pants about. He thinks he's king of the hill, walking around Megaton like he does all high and mighty. He tries to pull that shit with me and the Jenny Incident goes public.

Leo Stahl


Never trust a junkie. That's what I've learned trying to deal with this piece of work. He wanders in here higher than a bird in flight and tries to make it with Nova. She slapped him silly after he didn't wanna pay, the good girl. I almost kicked him out myself, but he staggered out of here. That guy may just be the straw I need to break Andy's back.

Andy Stahl


This guy is a real piece of work. Opening a fucking bar in my town? What a jackass. I swear, he's up to something. I'm going to have to think of a way to reduce his business a little. For now at least I still got my secret weapon... Nova: best refreshment in town.

Billy Creel


That Nuka-Cola swilling prick. Parading his little "daughter" Maggie around for all to see like a proud father... yeah right. Found her wandering the Wasteland my left ass cheek. I bet old Billy fed Maggie's parents that buckshot sandwich himself then added the little girl to his trophy collection in that shithole he calls a home. I better keep my eye on him.

Doc Church


Church thinks he such a freakin' badass. Everybody runs to him if they get a damn wood splinter and he just laps up their caps like a drunk downing alcohol. If people only knew he used to be a medic for the slavers at Paradise Falls, they'd run his sorry ass right out of town. But I think I'll keep that little nugget tucked away for later use.


Mr. Burke


This guy is a class A weirdo. One day I'm wiping down the bar and the fucker comes from out of nowhere... I didn't even hear the door open. He tells me he's here to wait for some sort of an opportunist to come through. Whatever. As long as he pays for his drinks, he can stay here until that damn bomb explodes in the center of town for all I care.

James (Vault 101)

Note: Reading this entry adds Moriarty's Info on Dad to the Lone Wanderer's PIP-Boy 3000.


So, out of nowhere, James came back to Megaton. Since he stayed here before he asked me where the hell he could get a lay of the land and find out what's going on in the world. I told him about Galaxy News Radio in the ruins of D.C., and that guy Three Dog. Then like that, he was gone again.

I remember the first time he showed up almost twenty years ago. I never expected someone to actually want to or be able to get INTO a vault, but he must have had his reasons. He had his kid with him, some baby that wouldn't shut the fuck up. Normally I would have kicked someone like that out of my place, but he had a way with words. Then, like that, he ducks into Vault 101 and he's gone for almost twenty years. Nice guy I guess, but never spends enough caps.



Jericho - 32 caps (deadbeat bastard)
Doc Church - 14 caps
Nathan - 8 caps
Stockholm - 8 caps

Brass Lantern Terminal

Note: This wall terminal is located on the wall in the office behind the counter on the first floor of The Brass Lantern. This terminal can be hacked (very easy). Or with the crumpled note.


Welcome to The Brass Lantern computer system, Mr. Stahl. What would you like to do today?

Notes On Leo

Note: This entry is available if ... .


I hate to even think that Leo is stealing from us, but he can't really seem to explain where the money is going. A cap or two is an honest mistake, but we're talking over a hundred per month here. I can't really accuse him of stealing, but something is going on.

And the oddest thing... Doc Church seems to know something about Leo, but won't tell me.

Note: This entry is available if ... .


Ever since that stranger helped Leo out with his problem, his counts have been coming up clean. I can't believe that he managed to hide his habits from me all this time. I guess we've grown apart over the last few years. That's something I'll have to work on fixing.

Cash Notes

Note: This entry is available if ... .


Leo's count came up short again this month. 124 caps this time. I'll have to keep an eye on him. He's either careless or a thief.

Note: This entry is ... only ... .


Leo's count came up short again this month. 124 caps this time. I'll have to keep an eye on him. He's either careless or a thief. And now the safe is coming up short too but Leo couldn't use a computer to save his life... could he?

Inventory Notes

Note: This entry is available if ... .


We're coming up short on a few things again. I can't explain it. We have enough liquor in the still to supply us each month, but yet we keep running short. Note to self: keep an eye on Leo. Between this and his cash shortages, I'm starting to think that something is going on.
