Description

Note: "This article will focus only on the quest part of the Cathedral run and will include spoilers. Check up Cathedral article in locations for more information about this awesome place. Did i mention spoilers? Well now that i did i can go super heavy on them since you are warned!


I have read a holodisc. It gave me instructions to perform a secret missions at the Cathedral.


Go to Cathedral. In order to increase your credibility among the members of the Children of Cathedral remember to fit into their dress code and get one of those purple robes. You will pretend to be an agent working for the Enclave. Break is our contact there. Find him. He knows, that we will send someone to meet with him. He has more instructions for you. He will most likely be in one of the upper floors. To get there you'll need a passphrase. It's "FEVer". Good luck Soldier!

To start this quest firstly you need to find Mission Briefing somewhere in the wasteland. It got slim chance to drop upon killing humanoid NPCs like Raiders or Peasants. Anything human-like will work as long as you have enough patience. Hunting for it might take a while. I'm just going assume that you found it... "In Disguise" is a hard quest that can be performed in Turn Based or Real Time. Real time is only doable if you got team of veteran players willing to join you, while turn based can be done with just one extra person (well it depends on many factors, for some players even 2-3 extra wastelanders won't be enough in TB while other people can try to do this place alone, all depends on how good stuff you're willing to risk and good your build is, and offcourse how experienced in turn based combat you are.)

Before departure:

  • Read the holodisk - depending on what game mode you have set the mission will take place in either Turn Based or Real Time mode. (Turn based is strongly suggested.)
  • Bring a lot of ammonition and super stims. Spare armor. Tools if your repair skill is low and you don't want to fail during it's repairing. Doctor Bag if you playing to fight in Turn based. Make sure your gun is in good condition and won't brake in middle of figth. Did i mention drugset?
  • Bring Robes with you. It's not super rare but also not very common spawn item. Try dungeons or Sierra Caves. You will get one eventually.
  • Make sure your friends are well prepared for the trip.
  • Make sure you have at least 40 minutes of free time before you start the quest.

Everything set? Go to Cathedral area. In front of doorway leading to Cathedral equip Robes and tell your companions to do the same. Ask them to tag you. Then make sure again that they tagged you. Then be sure to shout at the one guy that forgot to tag becuase reasons. Tell your team to stay put for next 5 minute and remind them to don't brake anything while you set things up...

First Contact with Break

First thing you should do (well first thing after entering the Cathedral, passing guard and explaining to your team mates that they really should just stay put and let you handle the quest part) is to go talk with the Break. He will outline your first job here and also gives you a quest holodisk. You can read it but unfortunely it's coded so all you will end up with is a long row of numbers.

A Record of the dialog:

Player Character:

A Cold day isn't it?

Break:

Psst! Shup up and talk after me! Say: "Yes, Indeed it's a nice day but i'm afraid I can't enjoy it at the moment. My liaison officer wants me to discuss some important topics with you."

Player Character:

[You put some intonation into a your voice]"Yes, Indeed it's a nice day but i'm afraid I can't enjoy it at the moment. My liaison officer wants me to discuss some important topics."

Break:

"Your fist task will be to deliver some important information to Lost Hills. To do this...

"...and that's why we need your assistance in this crucial part of our development. Our alliance is strong but it could be stronger if..."

...you need to establish a connection to the headquarter and submit the information stored on this holodisc. "Break gives you a small holo disc withouth even stopping his endless speech for a second. You take it and read further.

"To do this you will need to plug it into the SAT terminal, within the communication room. Honestly I don't give a fuck how you do this! That's your part but beware of..."

...monsters! They think of Mutants as a monsters! Can you imagine this?! I mean the process of transformation could still be improved here and there. No question! But can't they see that...


..."He is always there and amost never leaves the room! This fucker even talks to the terminals like they were his children or whatever. You'll have to find a way to get him out of there. He will never allow you to touch anything..."

Player Character:

Continue


Break:

[After finishing reading the note Break suddenly stops at nods to you]"

I hope we have agreement on this! Let's change the world!

Player Character:

Your arguments are quite reasonable. I will see what i can do to forward your suggestions. But right I'll just have a look around if you don't mind.

Break:

Of course, brother! Take your time. You can find me here if you need anything else.

Player Character:

Thank you, bye.

Meeting with Rawryy The Console Room Cerberus

I talked to Break. He gave me another Holodisc. I Need to use the SAT Terminal upstairs to uplink the data to the Brotherhood of Steel.

Rawryy is the first real obstactly that you will have to deal with. (Well technically the first real hindrance will be guard - Serjo placed next to doors but giving him the password: "FEVer" will take care of that issue) The Console Room is located on the second floor. Go there, then start the conservation.

A Record of the dialog:

Rawryy:

[You see an old man, messing around with some instruments and swearing from time to time over something. Sudddenly he recognises you.]

What?! Can't you see I;m busy here? What's the matter? Did one of those nightkins forgot, that stealth boys are no food again?

Player Character:

Not that I know of. What do you do here?

Rawryy:

The question would rather be: What the fuck do YOU do here?! I don't know you! Get lost before I call th eguiads, BROTHER!

Player Character:

Woah, easy brother! I just came here. Had a long journey from our headquarters at the oil rig. I need to report back to the commander. Just wanted to inform you that i need to use your SAT terminal for this purpose.

Rawryy:

Sorry, man. I think I overreacted a bit. It's just... this whole stuff is frustrating me sometimes. All this talking about better mankind and almost no one even understands how to type some commands into a computer terminal!

Player Character:

No problem. I feel you. You work to hard! Take a break. Go shop for some refined uranium or some electronic parts and have a nice day.

Rawryy:

Not a bad idea brother. [He smiles.] I really could use some fresh air. Ok, I'll take a break for some hours. Try to not break anything while I'm away.

Player Character:

Sure. Have fun!

Now that you get rid of Rawryy it's time to use the console. Connect to the Brotherhood of Steel. There is a nice bonus of 6k experience points for achieving that. Now that Lost Hills received their precious information they will be more willing for some risky moves - after all the plan minimum was scored and now if they lost some agents it won't matter too much right (Who cares if some wastelander AKA you, will die if situation will get out of control...)

Another Talktime With Break

I menaged to uplink the data to the Brotherhood of Steel. I should report back to Break.
A Record of the dialog:

Break:

Hello again, brother! [Break lowers his voice] So, did you menage to send the data?

Player Character:

Yeah, they got the message now.

Break:

Ok good! How did you get past Brother Rawryy?? Wait! Actually, I don't want to know.

Ok, now that no one's listening to us anymore we can speak more openly. The mutants don't really understand what we are talking about anyway.

Player Character:

So the job is done?

Break:

I'm afraid not! I need you to do me a small favour [Break grins]

Now that the guys in Lost Hills got the message things will start rolling and we have to move on.

Player Character:

The plan is to achieve a little change within the menagement of this cult here. In other words Tansien, the leader has to be eleminated to overthrow his leadership and to establish a new one.

Break:

I guess you will be the new leader afterwards then, right?

Player Character:

One doesn't need to be as smart as the master was to get to this conlusion but yes. As soon as I am in control of this organisation we will break the alliance with the Enclave and set up a much more profitable one with the BoS.

Break:

That's pretty much all. Questions?

Player Character:

Wait! You will become leader of the Children of Cathedral, but how does the BoS benefit from this whole operation?

Break:

You should know better than me but to explain it in short: First of all, if I am in lead here they will have someone they can trust within this organisation here and secondly they will be able to cross the plans of the Enclave to use this cult for their own cause.

Player Character:

Sounds reasonable. So where can i find Tansien?

Break:

He is located in the lower level. An old vault below this whole building. There's a secret passage next to a bookcase, that leads to the vault entrance. You will need a special key to open it.

You also should be careful. Tansien will be heavily protected by mutant guards and nightkins. But I guess this shouldn't be a problem for a big guy like you.

Player Character:

Can you give me a key to get there?

Break:

Unfortunately no! Beside Tansien himself only one other, high ranked brother owns a key for the secret passage to the vault. You will have to find a way to steal it from him.

His name is Ghtang. He lives at the top level of the building. I can give you a copy of the key to his room but you need to a find your own way to tget the key from there.

Player Character:

Just great! Well, then pass me the key to his room already!

Break:

Here, take it! [Break gives you the key.]

As this time he should most probably be passed out already. Lately he's drinking too much of this cheap booze. You still should be careful, though. If he wakes up you are in real trouble. Better find a way to sneak around him to get the key.

It should be in some small footlocker next to the bed. Any other questions?

Player Character:

Yes, i have some questions. [Take the key]

Break:

Yeah?

Player Character:

Where can i find Tansien again?

Break:

Down in the vault. You'll need a key for the secret passage to the vault entrance.

Player Character:

How am I supposed to steal the vault key from Ghtang?

Break:

Basically that's your problem but you only will have a chance to get it when he's drunk, which will most likely be the case. Still, if I'd be you I'd be really careful. Stay as far away from him as possible. Also I bet you learned some stealth techniques during your training. Use them!

Player Character:

What am I supposed to do once I gained access to the vault?

Break:

Kill Tansien, report back.

Player Character:

Got it!

Break:

Allright, good luck then! You will understand, that I can not risk to get directly involved into this. If something goes wrong I have to be sure, that there are no trails pointing in my direction.

After everything is done come back here immediately! If you don't do anything stupid after you killed him you will have some time before anyone recognises what happened.

Player Character:

Sure.

Woah that was a long talk indeed. Just as you read - it's time to get the key

Trip to Ghtang's Room

Break gave me a new task. I have to kill Tansien, the leader of the Children of Cathedral cult, to do this I need to get inside the Vault beath this building.

Proceed to highest level of the Cathedral building. This is the level where Ghtang is located. Before opening doors enable stealth and make sure you aren't running (unless you have combat running perk, otherwise you will exit stealth as soon as you start moving, becuase you can't run and stealth at the same time withouth perk) carefully reach the footlocker and loot only the quest item, don't risk taking anything else there or wasting more time at that room that's absolutely necessary. Trip's over and if you did it right Ghtang will never find out who took his key.

"A Visual Guide, how to get past the Ghtang."
Make sure to set: "always run" to off while doing this!

Bloody Mess

Wake up your team mates that probably felt asleep while waiting for you to obtain the necessary key. Go to underground levels. First level is full of centaurs and floaters, be sure to take anti-radiation drugs as if you won't they might weaken you (radiation bites can decrease amount of your action points for example), once you take care of them you will be fighting super mutants from now on. Among them there are few especially dangerous ones, the Stealth users, Nightkins. You can't detect them unless you are really close to them, and they on the other hand will shoot you from the distance making your life super miserable. Visit Cathedral page for information about enemies that you can find in this place. Basically, this is the shooting part of the quest. If you are alone - you probably won't be able to make it, if you are with just one team mate you have decent chance of clearing this place in turn based mode, if you are with entire gang - it's time for real time battle.

Once Tansien is dead - your job here is almost done. All that left is going to Break...

Yep it's Break again

I Killed Tansien. I should get back to Break now.

Suprisingle enough even though everyone was hostille in the underground levels, once your back in the Cathedral upper levels everyone should be peacuful, unless you did something badly in which case you will have to shoot down every living being here.

A Record of the dialog:

Break:

So? How's the progress?

Player Character:

You mad?! There was a whole fucking army down there! What kind of drug did you take before you came up with your "brilliant" plan?

Anyway. It's done, Tansien is dead! I guess it won't take long tll someone finds out what we did!

Break:

What WE did? I didn't do anything, remember that! Anyway. It seems you just prooved yourself to be a damm tough guy!

You better leave this place now. I'll handle the situation here and will report back to Lost Hills. You should meet with the Paladin in Shady Sands or with one of the others in San Francisco or The den to have your de-briefing or whatever you guys do after a successful mission.

Player Character:

Ok, don't mess it up! Bye.


The operation was a seccess. Now that Break will be in the charge of the children of Cathedral Cult, The Brotherhood of Steel will gain more influence and control over the situation.

Rewards

  • 6000 caps from Brotherhood of Steel Paladin located in front of Shady Sands's Outpost.
  • 22000 experience points (10k for Killing Tansien assuming you did it alone, 6k for obtaining the key and also 6k for letting Break know about your success.)
  • Some Good Loot from Cathedral Vault (Totally Random, it is possible to find rare weapons and implants there, but chance is super slim.)

Trivia

  • While conversating with Rawryy with high enough intelligence you can unlock some special dialog options. Quite amusing one!
  • There are some unfinished paths in this quest. If you choose to connect to Enclave Oil Rig instead of Lost Hills Bunker homever it doesn't seems to be working.
  • Rotunde, the guard at front entrance will want to search you - let him otherwise he will raise the alarm. This guy is connected to Enclave route in this quest, except it doesn't seems to be working well yet.
