We're independent folks here. Merchants, gamblers, NCR whores, all of them trade with us and we offer protection against critters and the Fiends.


North Vegas square is a fortified squatter settlement in the northeast of the Las Vegas Conurbation.

Background[edit | edit source]

The fragmented citizens of New Vegas have sealed themselves into different defensible quadrants. One such location is New Vegas Square. Established a few years ago by wastelanders looking for a place to call their own, this fortified position is more camp then settlement.[1] They are led by the self-imposed Crandon,[2][3] whom patrols the streets, with Jules and a few others, to keep the unwanted murderers, rapists, extortionists, and everything in between[4] away.[5]

This independent folk survives on trade. Rather, they offer protection from the creatures and Fiends – who reach outer Vegas through the sewers[6] – in trade.[7]

Naturally they don't trust strangers.[8] However much they trust wastelanders, they specifically dislike members and supporters of the New California Republic, seeing them as nothing more than selfish and self-interested[9] "stiff-back, clean-hand, little pussies."[10] In a barter check, Crandon implies that North Vegas is a place for working people that can handle themselves, and he expresses disdain for those that "squander [their] wealth like those fools in the Strip".[11]

Layout[edit | edit source]

This is apparently a slum of New Vegas, as there is almost nothing of interest, and the place is mostly filled with unimportant individuals. Most of the buildings are decrepit and falling apart, more so than other locations in the Mojave Wasteland. The only places of interest here are the apartment building called The Gray and a manhole to the north sewers. The denizens of the area are highly independent and very suspicious of outsiders. They also resent the presence of the New California Republic and are strongly opposed to the NCR having control over their community.

North Vegas square appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "Tell me about North Vegas."
    Crandon: "We've been here for a few years, just looking for a place we can call our own. Life's harsh, but still, it beats the hell out of the desert. We've got numbers, we've got food, and we've got trade. That's progress, stranger."
    (Crandon's dialogue)
  2. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collectors Edition p.305: "[2.07] North Vegas Square
    The fragmented citizens of New Vegas have sealed themselves into different defensible quadrants, and this tactic is just as apparent at the Junk Doors leading into North Vegas Square. Enter North Vegas Square [2B] to meet its citizens, including their self-imposed leader Crandon, and the only other Primary Location, The Gray [2B.01]."
    (Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition Tour of the Mojave Wasteland)
  3. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.328-329: "[2B.01] The Gray
    The small fortified camp of North New Vegas, run by Crandon and the stoic Jules has but one large location, close to the manhole cover leading to the North Sewers [U2.N]; the Gray Hotel. Once you enter, prepare for a quick-thinking, or fast-drawing altercation with the chem-addled thugs here. One is guarding a runaway girl's room, who has shacked up here with her boyfriend; a Ghoul named Andy. They only appear if the Side Quest involving them is active."
    (Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition Tour of the Mojave Wasteland)
  4. The Courier: "What kind of trouble?"
    Crandon: "Folks that don't belong. Murderers, rapists, extortionists, and everything in between. You know, business as usual in North Vegas, stranger."
    (Crandon's dialogue)
  5. The Courier: "Tell me more about your role here."
    Crandon: "Jules, myself, and a few others patrol the streets and sewers. Any punks come up out of the rest of the city, we give 'em the run off."
    (Crandon's dialogue)
  6. The Courier: "What's the deal with the Fiends?"
    Jules: "They're a bunch of lunatics, so pumped full of chems that they don't give a damn about life anymore. Fiends rape, kill and maim for the hell of it. Vault 3's Fiend territory. Those shit-heads attack Westside all the time, even making it to the rest of Outer Vegas when they crawl under the sewers."
    (Jules' dialogue (Fallout: New Vegas))
  7. The Courier: "Tell me about North Vegas."
    Jules: "We're independent folks here. Merchants, gamblers, NCR whores, all of them trade with us and we offer protection against critters and the Fiends."
    (Jules' dialogue (Fallout: New Vegas))
  8. The Courier: "I'm just another Wasteland wanderer. Why the suspicion?"
    Jules: "Cause that's the law of the land. You never know when someone's going to stab you in the back... and I like mineupright. Maybe one day, stranger, when you've seen all I've seen, done all I've done, you'll sooner trust a Radscorpion than a new face in The Wasteland."
    (Jules' dialogue (Fallout: New Vegas))
  9. The Courier: "Doesn't the NCR keep order around here?"
    Crandon: "NCR... did you just crawl out from under a rock? Those folks only care about their business, their people and their pockets. NCR's order? Don't make me laugh, stranger. We work this land, we own these streets, and we yank up the bad weeds ourselves, got it?"
    (Crandon's dialogue)
  10. The Courier: "NCR whores?"
    Jules: "You heard me. We don't like those stiff-back, clean-hand, little pussies. New Vegas belongs to the people. The NCR's just a corrupt and bloated monster, no better than any other Wasteland crawler. We make this land wealthy, and we ain't giving it up."
    (Jules' dialogue (Fallout: New Vegas))
  11. The Courier: "I've got the skills, the will and the firepower. All I expect is a decent reward for my work."
    Crandon: "[SUCCEEDED] Spoken like a true mercenary. Well, you seem like you can handle yourself, stranger, and we can use people like that. We may not squander our wealth like those fools in the Strip, but we take care of our own business. Consider this a token of good faith."
    (Crandon's dialogue)
