What? Are you kidding me? This is another one of Forty's tricks isn't it. Well I'm not falling for it.

Rory Maclaren is a slave at Paradise Falls in Fallout 3..

Background[edit | edit source]

One of the many held at Paradise Falls, 30-year-old Rory remains here until someone wishes to purchase him. Unlike some of his fellow slaves, Rory is obsessed with escaping and spends every waking minute pondering ways of tunneling, creeping, or bludgeoning his way out of Paradise Falls. He isn't about to be pushed around and has assaulted his captors several times. He’s been placed permanently in the “Box”, where unruly slaves await their fate.[1]

Effects of player actions[edit | edit source]

  • Once freed, he will travel to Moriarty's Saloon and stand in the room to the right where you find Mr. Burke. When attempting dialogue, he will only say "Hey. Talk fast, they hate it when I talk to customers".

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Killing him does not drop Karma level.
  • He will fight you if the slavers are hostile.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

His line "Can't nobody eat fifty eggs." is a reference to the film Cool Hand Luke.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If you convince Penny to leave Rory behind he will remain in "The Box". If you unlock the door and speak to him, he will repeat the "Talk fast" dialog.
  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Rory Maclaren may be dead upon interacting with 'The Box', even before you free any of the slaves making it impossible to free him.
  • If Rory is following you during Rescue from Paradise it is possible he will continue to do so even after he has reached the Paradise Falls front gates. This can happen by accident, but can be deliberately caused by fast-traveling away from the front gate as soon as possible.
  • Sometimes upon leaving Paradise Falls (having freed him, armed/armored him and let him shoot his way through the now weaponless slavers) he will not go through the entrance, but instead stay squatting in front of the door to the "inside" of the shopping center. He will have already started using his dialog from Megaton, "Hey. Talk fast, they hate it when I talk to customers", but will not follow anymore, or run off on his own.
  • In addition to the previously mentioned bug, when Rory will not move or initiate dialogue after being freed, he can be pushed a certain distance and then told to follow. He then begins to follow, and never initiates a dialogue to finish the quest and thus stop following.
  • As long as he doesn't start using his Megaton dialog, you can fix some of the aforementioned bugs. Push him to the distance where he begins to follow you again. When he becomes "unstuck" run to the nearest door. If you go through the door before he becomes "stuck" again, it sometimes fixes the problem. The best way to accomplish this is to push Rory out of the front barricades with the two guards, and run directly back into the main Paradise Falls compound through the blue gate. Rory will now initiate his 'free' dialogue and will stop following you.
