Guard the brahmin
Me guard moo-moos from bugmen. (I guard our family's brahmin herd from ferocious nocturnal attacks by bipedal, carapaced creatures that I call bugmen.)”— Torr Buckner
|Side Quest: Guard the brahmin|
|Speak to Torr.|
|Offer Torr help.|
|Kill the radscorpions.|
|Leave the area.|
|Reward: 250 XP, +50 Karma|
Standing outside of the Buckner House in Klamath, a simple-minded fellow named Torr tells you that "bugmen" have been raiding his brahmin at night. Agree to his plea and you'll be sent to where he keeps his livestock. If Torr's request is declined, he will not bring it up again.
Kill the radscorpions to finish the quest. The player character will have to go hunting for them, as they will not come when the player character is there. The player character can also confront the Dunton brothers who are standing to the west of the shack. If the player character agrees to rustle the brahmin, the player character can tell them to abort the plan which will cause them to run away (this requires a speech skill of 50). The player character will get the same reward either way.
If all the radscorpions are killed, Rustle the brahmin cannot be completed, as the Dunton brothers will be gone.
