Behind the scenes

  • His birthday coincided with the end of Fallout: New Vegas’ development. On October 1, 2010, the official Bethesda Blog created a post featuring Robert Lee and a Fallout: New Vegas themed birthday cake that his wife made.[Ext 1]


  1. Who's idea was that cool unmarked quest at Camp Guardian with the Lakelurks?
    Joshua Sawyer: I think the basic idea was mine but Rob Lee designed and implemented the whole thing.

  2. Was the non-Van Graff black combat armor that you find at the destroyed caravan intentional? Because I was relieved you can get cool-looking black combat armor without being affiliated with those Van Graff jerks...
    Joshua Sawyer: No idea. I think Rob Lee or Jesse Farrell set those encounters up.
    (Joshua Sawyer Formspring answers)
  3. Was it you who thought of fisto?
    Joshua Sawyer: That was Robert Lee.

  4. Chris Avellone: "@psmithnv Thanks, Paul - Rob Lee did the X-13 emails, Travis Stout did the final PC brain and appliances, so kudos to them."
