Featured quest: Oasis

  • One quest completion path will allow Linden's Power Armor And Poplar's Hood (improves Agility and Sneak).
  • Another quest completion path gives Maple's Garb (improved Agility and Perception) and a Missile launcher.
  • A third quest completion path will give the Barkskin perk.
