Recruit Ian is an unmarked quest in Fallout.


  • Ian is located at the guard house next to the Shady Sands town gate. The player can talk to him in order to get the locations of Junktown and Hub.
  • In order to recruit him, the player has to either scrounge up 100 caps to pay his fee or offer him a "piece of the action" instead. The latter option requires 6 Intelligence and passing a Speech check.
  • The player can recoup his losses by simply stealing the caps back from his inventory, as stealing from active companions is not considered a hostile action.
