Not good. If we don't get more supplies, we're going to have to start using dirt for food and sticks and rocks for weapons.

— Mayes, when asked about the camp

Quartermaster Carl Mayes is a New California Republic officer stationed at Camp Forlorn Hope in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. Usually, he can be found in the tent across from the storage shed.


Short on personnel, as well as supplies, Quartermaster Carl Mayes will take any and all the help he can get. He has been in the New California Republic for a long time, and yet he believes his current station is the worst so far. Despite this, Mayes is still rather loyal to the New California Republic, and will continue to do his job, and do it right. However, because he is unable to go himself, he needs someone to go out and bring back supplies. He had already sent people to HELIOS One to see if they had any supplies they could spare, but they have not returned. Ever since the Legion took over Nelson, there has been an increased strain on Mayes, as well as the other men.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Not good. If we don't get more supplies, we're going to have to start using dirt for food and sticks and rocks for weapons." – Mayes, when asked about the camp.
  • "Me? I've been doing this shit for far too long and have been in too many battles to remember.Still... this has got to be one of the worst situations I've been in. Not too much I can do about it but do my job and do it right."
  • "The Major let me send out some troops to gather supplies, but unfortunately they never returned. I'm guessing they ran into some trouble on the way. You can help by finding the troops and assisting them in bringing back any supplies they found."
