It's the Hispanic Heritage Month at FANDOM! It's worth noting that Wasteland, 33 years ago, was one of the first games to allow players to create Hispanic characters with the nationality selection. What's more, the starting Hispanic character, Snake Vargas, eventually became one of the most important movers and shakers of the Arizona wasteland, saving the world twice over as a Desert Ranger!

Scott's Bar is a location in Quartz. It is the gray building in the south.


Scott's Bar is noisy and smoky with many people and tables. The townspeople are concerned about the mayor and other hostages held by a gang. A guy called Ugly John who leads a larger desert band has taken an intense interest in "civic affairs".


  • On the table in the north-east corner you find the word URABUTLN on the table which means "You are a beauty, Ellen". This word is an answer to one of the riddles you get from the Riddler.
  • On some tables you find the graffiti DRINK carved into the table. Obviously a hint that you should buy a drink to start a conversation with Ellen the barmaid.
  • On one table you find the word UQTU spelled out in liquid from a spilled drink. This word may be a deception from the right word URABUTLN. The words meaning may be "You Cutie, you".
  • On one table you find some graffiti carved in to the table saying DANCER.
  • At a table in the north-west you can find the Riddler. He gives you some riddles when you buy him a drink and if you answer them correctly then he gives you another hint that you should speak to Ellen the barmaid.
  • At the northern end of the bar you can push in close and get shoved in the shoulder. You can decide if you shove back, apologize, ignore it or say "Chill out". If you choose the last option then the thugs mutter and move off. If you apologize then they throw you out of the bar. The other choices lead to a fight with the thugs.
  • Head Crusher sits at a table at the south wall of the bar. Give him the Visa card you got from the Brakeman of the Desert Nomads. As reward he gives you the password CATERPILLAR which you should say to the guard at the Atchison's tent.
  • There is a music box beside the stage. When you go to it you are attacked by thugs. After you have killed them you notice something written on the dead carcass. The words are GEN QUART THANA TOES. You get a flash of insight: Their general HQ, probably a hideout, uses the password THANATOS.
  • When you come close to the stage then one of dancers invites you onto the stage. But when you do so then the dancers run away screaming and you are attacked by some Bouncers who say you don't belong there.
  • When you step into the middle of the stage you find some loot and you are forced to entertain the mob. If you fail to entertain the mob then they throw rotten fruits at you. The following attributes and skills can be used to amuse the croud: Charisma, IQ, Agility, Acrobat, Confidence, Sleight of hand, Knife throw.
  • When you enter the men toilet you see two figures struggling in the corner. One turns, pulls a pistol and attacks. After the fight the other figure, a teenage boy collapsed in the corner with his head in his arms, cries that he tells you everything when you don't kill him. You show him you mean no harm. He is shaken but will answer questions if he can.
  • While you can enter the mens room with women in your party you can't enter the womens room with men in your party. So you have to split your party to get in.
  • There are two women by the sinks in the womens room who stopped talking when you entered. One lady has been crying. Use the Confidence skill or the Charisma attribute on them and they ask you for help to rescue Felicia Pedros, the wife of Mayor Pedros. They think she is held captive at Ugly's Hideout.
  • You can talk to Scott the barkeeper at the bar and buy some useful information from him.
  • On some of the southern seats at the bar you can talk to Ellen. Say URABUTLN to her. She answers with URAQT2 (You are a cutie, too) which is a password you have to give to her daughter Laurie. You can find Laurie in room #18 in the Stage Coach Inn and Ellen even gives you the key for this room.
