[edit] Talking To Desmond

Desmond will reveal that the brain is Professor Calvert. He will then tell the player of Calvert's past and his family history. He will then ask that you place a Cogwave Jammer on to the Wonder Wheel to disrupt all message that Calvert sends throughout Point Lookout.

As you move closer to the Wonder Wheel, the player can hearing Calvert's voice trying to persuade you to destroy the device.

Calvert Mansion's Destruction

[edit] Siding With Calvert

Following Calvert's instructions, place the Jamming device in the nearby trash compactor. Calvert will then instruct you to return to the mansion. As you approach the mansion, it is destroyed in a huge explosion, sending the player of their feet.

You will then need to head to the lighthouse. It is reveal that Desmond was not in the mansion during the explosion, but is instead moving towards the lighthouse. The situation isn't resolved until the next quest.

[edit] Siding With Desmond

After planting the device and activating the Wonder Wheel, Calvert's voice begins to break up. A group of Tribals will then attack you. All unnamed Tribals in The Ark & Dove Cathedral will become hostile towards you.

When you return to Calvert mansion, it is destroyed in a huge explosion which sends the player flying off their feet. Once you stand up, you will find a small panic room in the middle of the destruction. Entering it will reveal that Desmond survived the explosion. He claims that his "pups" were killed and that he is going to settle the 200 year long feud between him and Professor Calvert.

With a Speech check, the player can gain 250 caps from Desmond.

Either choice will end the quest and start the A Meeting of the Minds questline.
