There are a number of factions on The Strip who can be powerful allies to the major factions. These include the White Glove Society, Omertas, and even some of the Followers of the Apocalypse. Because many of the casinos don't allow weapons, you'll want to consider buying holdout weapons to smuggle in.
Beyond the Beef
Beyond the Beef is a quest in the Ultra-Luxe that revolves around the White Glove Society's interest in cannibalism. It is a required quest for the Legion. Depending on your karma and fame, you may find yourself freeing the victims or having them for dinner. Talk to either Heck Gunderson or Mortimer to start the adventure.
Heck's version of quest involves finding his lost son. Start by talking to Marjorie about a missing investigator. Then talk to Mortimer and go to the investigator's room. You'll be attacked by some guards, so be on the ready. Steal their clothes and sneak into the basement level. If you have some fame in the Strip, Marjorie will give you the keys and make you a member of the Society, otherwise you may have to rob her or pick the lock. Fight or sneak down and bring back Ted to his father.
Mortimer's evil version involves being a cannibal yourself or having enough speech. In this path, you are to instead kill off Heck and Ted, or even supply a new meal. Either free Ted and convince him that it was a misunderstanding; with this route you may have to sacrifice your companion to suit the Society's cravings. Alternately, kill Ted and smear his blood all over Heck's room. Alert the securitrons outside of Heck's "crime" and they will blast him to pieces. Either way return to Mortimer and Marjorie to return them to their old ways of eating people.
How Little We Know
The Omertas are another powerful gang inside New Vegas. Both the NCR and House are interested in what they have planned. If neither have given you orders to investigate the Omertas, Yes Man will also provide details to start the quest. Alternately, you may find yourself just killing the whole lot of them.
Start by talking to the receptionist in the Gomorrah and learn that you should find dirt on Cachino. Talk to this Omerta and you'll resort to finding harder evidence. Talk to the receptionist again and you'll gain Cachino's room key. Explore the room and you'll find his journal in the desk. Take this journal to the guards in the Zoara club to rat out Cachino to his boss. Big Sal will murder Cachino and put you in charge of the remaining tasks.
You'll need to complete two tasks for patrons in the Gomorrah: Clanden and Troike. Clanden wants chlorine, which can be stolen from the Ultra-Luxe with 50 Lockpick, or you can use Science to solve his problem.
For Troike, the Fiends have stolen a shipment of his guns. They are located to the west outside New Vegas as marked with your quest markers. There are only a handful of Fiends guarding the shipment, so recovering the stolen goods should be no problem. Return to the goods to both Clanden and Troike. Report to Big Sal for the completion of the quest, some caps, and even Gomorrah playing chips.
The Moon Comes Over the Tower
The Followers of the Apocalypse are interested in learning the secrets of Mr. House's systems. Emily Ortal will meet you outside and ask you to bug the systems in the Lucky 38. Enter the Lucky 38's casino level bar and upload the virus to the lone terminal. Return to Emily outside and she'll be able to gain some data. If you have enough Speech, you can also learn extra details about Benny and Yes Man.
