Detailed walkthroughEdit

Head to the Prydwen and speak to Proctor Teagan and ask if he has any work. He will send the Sole Survivor to a settlement in order to "persuade" them to donate food by any means necessary. This can be done by purchasing crops from the settlers, or by eliminating them, which will result in the Brotherhood of Steel claiming the settlement. Regardless of the path taken, return to Proctor Teagan to complete the quest and collect one's reward.

It may be expected that Paladin Danse will approve of acquiring a settlement for the Brotherhood, but this is true only if you shell out the full asking price of 1,000 caps to the owner (although this may be due to the mission not being an "official" task for the Brotherhood as Teagan concedes if you call him out on the nature of the request). Haggling the price down to 500 caps will cause no effect. Donation persuasion choices will yield a like from Danse. Killing off the farmers is considered murder and, like all such cases with Danse and most other companions, will cause disapproval, and may cause Danse to angrily point out that murder is prohibited by the Brotherhood. Also, for an unknown reason, Brotherhood soldiers will not spawn in the Brotherhood controlled settlements.

After this, one must use console commands setstage BoSR05 50 to finish the Brotherhood quest or Teagan can not be spoken to.[verification overdue]
