Temple of the Servants of the Mushroom Cloud is a location in Vegas.
The Vegas nuclear power plant continues to function after the apocalypse. Home to the poisonous cult of the Servants of the Mushroom Cloud, it provides the entire city with vital electricity and acts as a "church" where the followers pray and meditate about all things nuclear. The sewers beneath the temple were probably a good way to discharge reactor cooling water before the war, but now they are the gateway to the end areas of the game.
The Mushroom Temple can't be missed: it's easiest to approach from the central eastern section of the map from the desert. The Mushroom Temple contains the entrance to the sewers, and thus is a must-visit if you want to progress further in the game. The password is either "Oppenheimer" or "Einstein", or you can say you have a gift, and say "Bloodstaff". Alternately, you can blow down the doors with TNT and slay the Temple Guardians that spawn to fight you for a lot of additional experience.
It has many spots to explore, many opportunities for level-up combat, and it serves as a good spot to let time pass and regain health points because there are no fights you don't pick yourself. Some of the doors respond to Picklock, others respond to Electronics or TNT. Using a Sonic Key (kill the Cyborg Commandos, or dig it up at the golf course stash) you can open the wall to the west of the central reactor room and access the sewers. The Temple also has a stash of weaponry to the west and armor to the east before the main reactor room (including M1989A1 NATO Assault Rifles and Rad suit. Charmaine carries a Laser pistol.
The player is strongly cautioned if entering combat in this location to avoid radiation. Rad Angels leave behind radiation in the space they die in, and a Nuclear Technician throws a radiation grenade at you in the reactor works if assaulted, leaving another radiation spot. Keep Rad suit on hand to deal with this nuisance. If you're feeling mischievous, you can tinker with the controls using Electronics and shut down the reactor's coolant, forcing a meltdown, which both opens all of the doors in the place and simultaneously floods most of the building with radiation. Your call!
