Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Morgan, we have an issue. It'll take time to properly analyze the chemicals, and I don't think that keeping them in Perkins's footlocker is a good idea.
Morgan2 No? I was going to have him just carry them around, but it seemed like he might hurt other people.
Npc mechanic full~ipad I could draw up plans for a containment facility. It'll have thick walls, security codes - everything you could need! We could store this stuff without much danger to anyone.
Morgan2 Zoey, making something that SAVES lives... I could get used to this!
Finish mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad Ta-da! One Chemical Storage Facility!
Morgan2 For such a huge building, it sure doesn't store much...
Npc mechanic full~ipad I needed to use most of the space for triple-reinforced concrete walls! The stuff ate right through the double-reinforced walls I tried first.
Morgan2 And we're storing it right in the middle of our outpost.
Awesome.

Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Well, I've started on my analysis of the chemicals, but it's slow going. I'll need more samples. I'm still shocked that the Rebels would stoop this low.
Npc sergeant full Speaking of the Rebels, looks like they're snooping around that same region we found 'em in earlier.
Morgan2 Sounds like we can kill two birds with one stone. The Rebels should have at least a little more of this stuff.
Npc engineer full~ipad Hold on! You're not facing those monsters without protection this time!
Finish mission
Morgan2 These should make sure we're safe from the Rebels' chemical attacks. Relatively speaking, anyway.
Npc engineer full~ipad Shouldn't we start full scale production of Hazmat Suits?
Morgan2 Are you kidding? Do you know how much that'd cost? It'll be cheaper to just treat our injured at the Hospital.
Npc engineer full~ipad Economics is the ugliest Science of all.

Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad All suited up? Good. Now, we should return as soon as possible once we find more samples. Fresh is good!
Npc sergeant full Since when does Floyd have authority over us?
Morgan2 Hey, if YOU want to be in charge of the incredibly lethal chemicals, be my guest.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad So, I've been able to work out the origins of the chemicals. They're organic, which means they have to be grown, not mixed, and only under very controlled conditions.
Morgan2 So, if we take out the lab where they're brewing this stuff, we can cut it off at the source! That'll teach those inhuman monsters a thing or two about trying to fight us with poison!
Npc engineer full~ipad Well, that's the thing. I did some digging and it seems pretty clear that the source is, uh... it's us. The Empire had a skunk works bio lab somewhere in the southwest working on this stuff.
Morgan2 Oh. Uh... Well. Hmm.

Dialogue
Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Morgan, if I'm going to be working with these chemicals, I'll need a separate facility to examine and process them.
Morgan2 Say no more. If we ever want to start using these chemical weapons ourselves, we'll need someplace designed to handle them anyway.
Finish mission
Morgan2 What's wrong? Doesn't this meet all your specifications?
Npc engineer full~ipad Yes, but what's that you said before about USING the chemical weapons? I thought I was just researching a way to counter them!
Morgan2 Floyd, we're at war.
Not the fun, low key Look-At-Those-Silly-Rebels war. We're fighting to survive. NOT using the chemicals puts us at a huge disadvantage against the Rebels.
You and I don't have the luxury of doing the right thing. We need to keep our people alive.
Npc engineer full~ipad Yes, but...!
Damn it, that's pretty compelling.

Start mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad Hey LT, do ya got a sec? With all the Rebels around, I... I feel like I'm goin' a little crazy. I keep thinking about them going to Cariston and destroying everything... everyone... I've gotta do SOMETHING!
Morgan2 Well, there might be something you can do. Do you think you might be wracked by ethical questions and doubts about the morality of using terrible agents of death against fellow human beings?
Npc mechanic full~ipad Nope!
Morgan2 That's my girl! So we have all these lethal chemicals we've stolen from the Rebels, and I think it's high time we give them a taste of their own toxic medicine. Any ideas?
Npc mechanic full~ipad Hmmm. While I was down at the Barracks, they were trainin' Flame Troopers. I bet I could rig up somethin' like that, but for sprayin' poison instead.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Interesting getup you've created there.
Npc mechanic full~ipad I used old fire extinguishers and borrowed some pesticide sprayers from the Farm. It uses the same idea as our flamethrowers. Only instead of hot flaming death, it deals out gassy, choking death! Pretty cool, huh?

Start mission
Npc sergeant full You know, Morgan, now that we have Chem Troopers, we should test them under actual battle conditions...
Morgan2 Sure. The Rebels will probably return to that chemical weapons lab. We know the general region it must be in. If we intercept them somewhere along the way...
Npc sergeant full Exactly. We can give them a taste of their own medicine!
Morgan2 Did Floyd tell you that stuff is medicine? Because it's not.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full Woo! It's sure different when this stuff is on OUR side. Those Rebels hardly knew what hit 'em!
Morgan2 Your delight is both understandable and slightly frightening, Ramsey. At any rate, the Chem Troopers have proven their worth.
Npc sergeant full Definitely. I'm thinking of training Perkins in gas handling and dispersal.
Morgan2 Seriously? You'd trust *Perkins* with chemical weapons? Are you sure you didn't inhale some of that gas, Ramsey?
Reward screen
Npc sergeant full Perkins just needs a little extra help is all.

Start mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad Hey, LT, I'm still kinda nervous about the Rebels, but they gave me an idea. We can probably use these chemical weapons to protect our home, here.
Morgan2 You have my attention.
Npc mechanic full~ipad I was watchin' Yaro, Taro, and Daro play in our sprinkler system, and I thought, why not rig up somethin' like that to spray poison gas when it notices bad guys?
Morgan2 Watching children at play made you want to set up sprinklers that will disperse deadly chemical weapons in the middle of our outpost?
Npc mechanic full~ipad More or less?
Finish mission
Morgan2 I'm a little uncertain about this...
Npc mechanic full~ipad Oh, don't worry, LT! You'll be happy with the Chem Sprinklers when the Rebels attack! Just don't jostle the spray nozzles... or trip the sensors... or light a match nearby...

Npc mechanic full~ipad Wow, it's amazing how unstable this chemical stuff is. One wrong move, and you'd die a really HORRIBLE, NASTY death! It's so cool!
Morgan2 Um... Yeah. Cool.
I just wish we didn't have to spray it all over the place...
Npc mechanic full~ipad Oh, I've been thinkin' about that. What about grenades? Then we can throw the poison really far, an' we won't have to worry about the wind or nothin'!
Morgan2 Hmm, grenades... Could work! Just... make sure the pins are in securely, all right?
Finish mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad All done!

Npc mechanic full~ipad OK, Ramsey, these grenades are lighter than the plain-old explodey ones; y'all should probably teach the troops how to throw 'em right...
Npc sergeant full The Empire mandates realistic training scenarios! And there's nothing more realistic than gassing real Rebels!
Morgan2 I feel like I should be slightly disturbed by your recent attitude, Ramsey. Huh. Have fun, boys!
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full The Rebels are getting meaner. I think they're angry we're interfering with their chemical salvaging operation.
Morgan2 All the more reason to keep on harassing them, then. I just wish WE knew where that hidden chemical lab was...
Npc sergeant full We could use it - those Bio Grenadiers kicked ass out there!
Morgan2 Sure did... Hey, let me have one of those grenades. My wine cellar has a bit of an ant problem.

Morgan2 Oh, you just wanted to talk about the Rebels again. Yeah, go ahead and shoot 'em or whatever.
Finish mission
Morgan2 So, while I was watching the battles from a safe distance, upwind, I was thinking about the ethics of warfare.
Npc sergeant full Uh… yeah?
Morgan2 Basically, I've decided that if someone wants to kill me and everyone I know, I don't care if they get poisoned.

Npc sergeant full You look pale, Perkins. What's the matter? Floyd looking for "volunteers" again?
Npc noob full No, sir! It's Rebels! They're everywhere! Literally everywhere, all over the frontier! It looks like they're hauling the chemicals away as fast as they can.
Npc sergeant full Morgan, I have an idea: we kill two birds with one stone again. We follow them to the lab. Then we pounce, and kick their butts so hard they'll realize that using it is more trouble than it's worth.
Morgan2 Man, your plans sure are murder-heavy.
Still, it's a good idea. Go forth and slaughter, Sergeant.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full That must be it! An Imperial lab, all the way out here...
Morgan2 An Imperial lab full of chemicals that could kill us all if we look at them funny. I'm bringing Floyd in; I have a feeling we'll need him.
Npc sergeant full Better hurry. There are still Rebels in that lab, and I can't guarantee they'll still be here when you get back.

Npc sergeant full As if you couldn't tell from the Rebel presence.
Morgan, I'm going in.
Morgan2 Look, I know you're angry, but for god's sake, be careful! The Rebels will be desperate to hold on to this place.
Npc engineer full~ipad And try not to damage any of the equipment! Destroying anything could unleash a disastrous tide of gas over the entire area! It would kill all of us and probably upset the local ecology something fierce!
Finish mission
Morgan2 Damn, there's not much left. Floyd, any chance of getting this up and running again?
Npc engineer full~ipad After the damage Ramsey did? Not likely.
Npc sergeant full I said I was sorry!
Npc engineer full~ipad We've cut off the supply, but it looks like the Rebels were able to move the bulk of it out.
Morgan2 I guess we'll just have to take it back the hard way.

Npc noob full Oh, no, sir. We have Rebel patrols. I assume they're pursuing Sergeant Ramsey, trying to figure out where we are.
Morgan2 Oh. That's much, much worse.
Finish mission
Npc noob full Well done, sir! That'll teach those Rebels not to mess with us.
Npc sergeant full No, it'll teach them that Rebels who move north vanish, and that there's definitely something worth investigating.
Morgan2 Then we'll give them an answer they'll like.

Npc raiderelder full And you think this plan will work?
Morgan2 Totally! If we attack their northern camp as Raiders, the survivors will all have the same report. Rebel command will suddenly have a very compelling story about how crazed Raiders are wiping out any force that heads north.
Npc raiderelder full Crazed Raiders, eh?
Morgan2 Oh, like you guys DON'T attack people that travel north?
Npc raiderelder full I concede your point.
Finish mission
Npc raiderelder full We have done as you requested, Morgan. The Rebels have been struck by the full fury of our people.
Morgan2 Full fury? Some of them survived, right? They'll be able to report back what happened, won't they?
Npc raiderelder full Probably? My people could have survived some of the wounds we inflicted. I cannot speak for your Rebels.

Npc sergeant full Captain, we have a bit of a problem.
With all the refugees we're taking in and the soldiers we're training, our food supplies are starting to get stretched thin. Without the Empire sending us support...
Morgan2 I have an idea: a convenience store! That way, our troops can get lamp-warmed hot dogs and gallons of overcaffeinated energy drinks at all hours!
Npc engineer full~ipad Really, Morgan? Can't we do better than soda in cups larger than my head and cheese in colors that don't exist in nature?
Morgan2 Sorry, Floyd, beggars can't be choosers. I'm sure the rest of the outpost agrees. Besides, all the extra fat will keep us going until we get more supplies.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Finally, it's open! Smell that? That's the smell of modern progress! And mass-produced coffee that tastes like liquid road tar. Our food problems are solved!
Npc engineer full~ipad Wait a moment. We built this abomination because we don't get food supplies from the Empire. So where is the Convenience Store getting ITS food?
Morgan2 That's the best part!
It came pre-stocked with five years worth of prepackaged processed food-like products! Now if you'll excuse me, I have a nacho binge to start...

Npc sergeant full Worry about that later! We have to get them out of here before they trample everything!
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full Whew, that's all of them. But I wish we knew what brought them here in the first place.
Npc engineer full~ipad I think I can answer that.
I've been studying the mammoth corpses, and discovered that they require an unusually high amount of caffeine in their diet to stay awake in their cold habitats.
Npc mechanic full~ipad Wait, you mean...?
Npc engineer full~ipad Yes! They were attracted here by the Convenience Store and the smell of its coffee! Sorry I didn't know before this, or I would've pushed against it even more strongly...
Npc sergeant full Well, we're stuck with them now. No way is Morgan going to give up his morning coffee. I'll set up more patrols to keep them away from sensitive areas of the outpost.

Npc sharpshooter full~ipad Ramsey, why are you wearing a dress uniform?
Npc sergeant full Oh, uh... I wanted to look nice so I could ask you out on a date.
Npc sharpshooter full~ipad You don't need to dress up. Just ask me out, and we'll make plans. When are you free?

Do you see me running off and sticking my nose into every argument a dirt farmer has with his neighbor? Hell no. We're here, protecting Imperial citizens and trying to keep this city from falling apart.
Morgan2 We've been doing that too. Just, you know, in lots of little cities instead of one big one. Though the Outpost is getting to be quite the little city itself...
Npc veteran full And making giant targets out of yourselves and every city you visit while you're at it. Look, you love helping so much? Marin doesn't need your guns. We need your steel. Lots of repairs here, not enough steel.

Npc engineer full~ipad I think those people attacked us with some kind of portable LASER! This is quite surprising.
The only laser I know of is Tragan University in Cariston. It was used to teach the more prodigal students the values of lateral thinking. And to scare undergrads.
I never imagined it was possible to create a weapon out of it! The one I saw weighed a ton and required more power than entire factories. If it can be made portable...!

Npc engineer full~ipad Morgan, I've been investigating the damage done to Perkins' boot by that laser gun we were attacked with.
These people have created a handheld weapon that can melt or burn through conventional armors, but I don't know how.
Npc sergeant full Sir, these people are a security threat.
We absolutely need to figure out how these guns work, if only so we can protect ourselves from them. I don't like not knowing what I'm up against.
Morgan2 You had me at "damage done to Perkins."
I'll consider authorizing a mission to steal one of these guns. But I'm having Perkins confined to the base. We don't have room in the budget to get new boots for him every day.

Npc engineer full~ipad The ON/OFF button remains impervious to my prodding. I tried pushing it, holding it down, even tapping it in patterns.
Zoey, do you think you can get the casing off of this weapon? The rivets on the side turned out to be decorative. I think it's fused into a single outer shell.
Npc mechanic full~ipad Yeah, I think I can bust that open.
Wait, do you need whatever is inside to be in one piece?
Npc engineer full~ipad Do be careful! The insides could be highly volatile.

I'll clamp the gun in this squeezer, then just twist and separate the casing with this chainsaw!
Morgan2 I think this setup might have some applications for our information gathering ops. We could put a prisoner on a platform, and have the laser sloooooowly move toward him, right? Then—

Npc-portrait-Judge Pierce No no! I actually wanted something different. See, we can't always be callin' on you to defend us every time we get attacked, so I was wonderin' what you'd suggest to help us stand on our own two feet.
Morgan2 ... Really? You mean if I tell you what to do, you'll actually LISTEN? And without whining or arguing?
Npc-portrait-Judge Pierce Of course! Why not? You're a lieutenant in the Imperial Army, after all. You don't get there by bein' a dummy.
Morgan2 No! No, you don't... All right, then, Judge, my opinion: first you have to train your citizens to defend themselves. Perhaps if you watch how we train our troops...

Morgan2 Well, then, I'm glad that you, at least, are so gracious.
Npc-portrait-Judge Pierce That's just the way I was raised, son. I give credit where credit is due. Anyhow, what's the next step?
Morgan2 Vehicles. Against the Silver Wolves, infantry may not be enough. Not that you need tanks or anything, but at least some scout bikes will help a lot...
