Detailed walkthroughEdit

Meet Father on the rooftop after The Battle of Bunker Hill. He will request for the Sole Survivor to attend the next Directorate meeting. There, Father will make it public knowledge that he is dying from an aggressive form of cancer, and that he will be appointing the Sole Survivor as his successor upon death.

Speaking with Father afterwards, he will state that it will take time for the scientists to accept that the Sole Survivor will become the new director, but will give assurances that the Sole Survivor will be the future of the Institute, and his legacy.

Finishing this quest automatically begins the next quest Mass Fusion.

  • X6-88 becomes available as a Companion after completing this quest.
  • The player can get banished from the Institute if he/she starts arguing with Father on the rooftop and the argument gets too heated, thus ending The Institute and The Railroad quest-lines.
  • After completing Mankind - Redefined, Tradecraft will fail automatically. Consequently, the player cannot join The Railroad anymore. However, if the player is already a member of The Railroad, they can continue to do Railroad quests.
  • Some events done prior to this quest may alter what Justin Ayo says during his status report:
  • The meeting will take place even if the player takes too long to arrive by completing other quests before showing up. Mankind - Redefined will still continue, but Father will be alone at the table and chastises the player for missing all of his big announcements.


pcIcon pc The Directorate meeting may never start no matter what you do. All the department leads will be sitting at the table waiting for Father's announcement, but he will only ever tell you he has something important to say before he can talk to you in private. This could be related to recruiting Doctor Li for the Brotherhood of Steel at some point before the meeting. PC players can use console commands to advance the quest to the next stage, but other than that, no fix is currently known.[verification overdue]
