I'm in charge of the...I mean, I help run the Far Go Traders. If anyone messes with us, I'm the one they will answer to.

Rutger is the manager of the Far Go Traders in Hub's Downtown area in Fallout.


Rutger is the nervous system of the Far Go Traders. While on paper he helps Butch Harris run the outfit, he's in fact the person in charge of its day to day operations. He is a veritable treasure trove of information on the caravans in the wastelands and hires caravaneers to protect the trade wagons on their way to their destinations.
