We need a regular supply of medicine organized, but the Crimson Caravan wants too many caps for what we need.

Julie Farkas

Friend of the Followers[1] is an unmarked quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Unmarked Quest: Friend of the Followers
Solve the medical supplies shortage of the Followers of the Apocalypse.
Speak with James Garret at the Atomic Wrangler casino.
Return to Julie Farkas.
(Optional) Donate some Med-X, RadAway or Fixer.
Reward: Caps (+ 300 XP if you join the Followers)

Detailed walkthroughEdit

When talking for the first time with Julie Farkas about Freeside she will tell you that the Followers of the Apocalypse need a constant supplier for some ingredients used to manufacture medicine items.

For a constant supply talk to James Garret at the Atomic Wrangler and convince him to strike a deal with the Followers. Then report back to Julie, convincing her that the Garrets want to help Freeside in exchange of the Followers' technical skills. After talking to her, report again to James Garret and he will inform you that some of the supplies will be sent immediately. Return again to Julie and gain a huge boost of reputation with them.

Then you also have to spare some of your own Med-X, RadAway or Fixer, 10-15 packs of any should do the trick. Note that you don't need to donate 10-15 of each, but a total of any of them. (One can donate only Med-X for example, which is far more common than Fixer and RadAway.)

You will know that you successfully completed the quest when the next time you want to donate some supplies, Julie tells you that the item in question is already being mass produced, but she will accept it anyway. After the donation, she will offer a discount in medical services and some magazines for you to buy (several Programmer's Digest and Today's Physician, some Lad's Life, Salesman Weekly and one Meeting People) and you will gain more reputation with the Followers as well.


  • This quest is related to the quest High Times. At some point of either quest (depends which one you started first) is likely you will be idolized by the Followers. Even if you are idolized, Julie Farkas will not invite you to join the Followers of the Apocalypse unless you have solved their supply problem and donated chems to them. This is the only way to gain the Followers lab coat (+10 Medicine and Science) and the key to the Followers Safehouse.
  • After helping the Followers, you don't need a Speech check to recruit Arcade Gannon.
  • Although Julie Farkas suggests you talk to Mick and Ralph, you needn't bother. They will just tell you no. She also mentions the Crimson Caravan Company as a possible supplier, but there are no dialogue options with anyone there.(Edit-29.11.2015:With the update,vendor at Crimson Caravan have the option to supply Followers with the spices as he should be.)
  • Sometimes you must donate well over 20 chems, which will depend on your Followers reputation. The option you choose in the quest That Lucky Old Sun can markedly impact your Followers reputation, and a choice that provides little or no Followers reputation will mean you need to donate more chems to increase your reputation.
  • Julie Farkas will resupply the magazines she sells each time you tell her you have medical supplies to donate.
