Background

Not much is told about him and his background but what can be deduced from the child at heart perk choice when talking to him, he probably got the adult part of his brain taken out by Tobar the Ferryman when he went to collect seeds from the mother punga plant.

Daily schedule

He can be found wandering inside the outer walls of the Ark & Dove Cathedral.

Inventory

Apparel Weapon Other item On death
Tribal Garb Fertilizer Shovel
Double-Barrel Shotgun*

Notes

  • He appears to have a spiritual connection with punga fruit
  • Croatoa will not become hostile like the unnamed tribals at the cathedral if you side with Desmond during Thought Control, but will if he sees you attack any other tribals.
  • If the player has the Child at Heart perk [1] or passes an easy Speech check they can get the Fertilizer Shovel from him.
  • From his responses, it can be seen that he may actually be a bit enlightened thanks to keeping an open mind and a peaceful philosophy unlike any of the other tribals.

Appearances

Croatoa appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.

Behind the scenes

His name is likely a reference to a colony on Roanoke Island (in present day North Carolina) that seemingly vanished in 1590. Later colonists discovered the word 'Croatoan' carved into a fencepost in the abandoned colony, possibly indicating that the group left for natively populated Croatoan Island to the south. Their fate was never determined, however, and remains a mystery to this day.

Overview

Croatoa. It's a name that conjures up images both mysterious and fantastical. In Issue 5, be prepared to enter a new enchanted realm of supernatural danger, where myth becomes reality and ancient legends walk the earth. Croatoa is a place steeped in old magic, ruled and contested by witches, Red Caps, Fir Bolgs and the Tuatha de Dannan. Any hero who faces these creatures in the wooded depths of Croatoa will know the true meaning behind the title, "Forest of Dread."

Enemy groups in Croatoa are actually enemies of each other as well. For example, if a Tuatha de Dannan runs arcross a member of The Cabal, they will start attacking each other. Any damage caused by enemies will leech experience from a defeat.

  • Eochai will also spawn periodically around the southern border of the map, while Jack in Irons will appear on the stone throne in the south east corner, or wander the hills in the north east corner.

The Cabal have developped an attachment to this old, gnarled tree. Some heroes even say they are conducting dark experiments beneath its roots.

Image:Badge_tourist_01.png Grim Wanderer

This deadly valley is witness to some of the most brutal battles in all of Croatoa.

It may be in dangerous territory, but this lake, frequented by the Cabal's strange sprites, is one of the most beautiful sights near Salamanca.

Plaques and Monuments

Transfer Points

  • Croatoa is only reachable via the Green Line monorail.
  • The Croatoa Beacon location is (161.5, -32, -844), just west of War Witch.

Villain Groups

Allied with the Fir Bolg, and hostile to the Red Caps and Tuatha de Dannan. Generally found within the local town, and to the north-west areas of Croatoa.

Allied with the Cabal, and hostile to the Red Caps and Tuatha de Dannan. Generally found in the south and south-west areas of Croatoa.

Neutral to all other parties within Croatoa, except nearby Heroes! They appear only when the sun goes down. Generally appear within the local town, but more specifically the graveyard.

Allied with the Tuatha de Dannan, and hostile to the Cabal and Fir Bolg. Generally found in the far north of Croatoa.

Allied with the Red Caps, and hostile to the Cabal and Fir Bolg. Generally found in the east section of Croatoa.

Though rare, Herders will sometimes appear disguised as trees.

Notes

  • The Tuatha de Dannan villain group name is misspelled in the targetting window; it is spelled "Tuatha de Dannon." Everywhere else in the game and in the documentation, however, it is spelled Tuatha de Dannan.
  • This zone was created as part of the release of Issue 5 on August 31, 2005.
  • Croatoa is clearly an homage to "supernatural" towns like Salem, Massachusetts and the fictional Sleepy Hollow.
  • The real-life origin of the word "Croatoa," particularly as used as the name of the zone, is from the story of the disappearance of the first Roanoake settlement in America, in which the only clue to the disappearance of the colonists was the word "Croatoan" carved into a tree at the former site of the settlement. Exactly what happened to the colonists is still a mystery.[1]
