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.
