  • Help Bess the Brahmin: Bess broke her leg. A player with a Doctor skill above 25% can help fix it. After that, she'll follow you around Modoc's main street.
    • A nasty player can sell her to Grisham in exchange for 100 meat jerky after three months and a loss of 5 Karma. If you change your mind, you can release her and the rest of the brahmin in the slaughterhouse pen for 10 Karma, but your reputation with Modoc will take a hit. Bess also can be a temporary companion after you help her in numerous instances.


Bess appears only in Fallout 2.
