Roshambo is a crazy old man and an ex-Eastern Brotherhood of Steel member who in 2197 lives in Osceolla.

Background[edit | edit source]

Roshambo was a paladin of the Eastern Brotherhood of Steel who traveled east with Paladin Latham in an airship that pursued the super mutant army after the Master's death. He told the Brotherhood Elders that storms would be the end of the air convoy, but he precautions were ignored. As he suspected, the airship crashed near the place known as Osceolla.

By 2197, Roshambo is a crazy old man who hides and does funny things with his fingers (presumably playing Rock-Paper-Scissors) and urinates in other people's Nuka Cola. He is the sort of man mothers warn their sons about.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

He apparently still occasionally meets with Latham, and is somewhat loyal to him, despite being mad.

Interactions with the player character[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Roshambo was named after an ex-administrator of No Mutants Allowed, also known as "The Roshambo Warrior" and "Rosh", who was vocal in his criticism about Fallout Tactics during the game's production.
  • "Roshambo" is also another name for the popular game rock-paper-scissors. This is referenced in his description in which he is described doing 'odd things with his hands'. It is also used colloquially to describe another game in which people kick each other in the groin, and the last man standing wins.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Roshambo appears only in Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel.
