He's... he's been up there for days! He's got all of those mines wired to a trigger. He won't let anyone in or out of the alley. If I try to leave, he'll set them off. But I can't stay here any longer!

Preacher's hostage (wastelander in-game) is The Preacher's hostage in 2277.


Captured by the preacher in an alley, he has been there for more than a day, and he must get out to survive, however he will be blown up if he tries to leave or enter.
