24 - Fort Bannister


25 - Rockopolis

Rockopolis was once a bustling underground city, but you won't find much there now -- just a slaver's note, the corpse of a ghoul named Argyle, and the Bobblehead - Unarmed doll. Herbert "Daring" Dashwood (in Tenpenny Tower) will give you a reward if you tell him what happened to Argyle.

Note: Rockopolis won't show up on the world map, but if you start in Girdershade (#19) and then head north, you'll run into it. If you have trouble finding the entrance, then get to about the right spot and check your local map.

If you flip the electrical switch at the tower, then you'll begin picking up signal Papa November on your radio, which will lead you to a drainage chamber to the northeast. Inside the chamber you'll find a Pre-War Book and a copy of Pugilism Illustrated.

Warrington Station and the Warrington Tunnels are both involved in the side quest Tenpenny Tower. Please refer to that quest entry for more information on the two locations.

To the southwest of Warrington Station, you'll discover a shop named Lucky's. Inside you'll find a copy of Pugilism Illustrated (in the counter), a bottle of Nuka-Cola Quantum, a safe / terminal combination, and lots of items necessary for schematics. You should also meet a scavenger inside, but he probably won't have much to sell.
