An Invitation... to DANGER[]

Level: 46 Prereq: Burying Children
Morgan2.png How does Perkins always know all this stuff? Sniper2 icon.png Train a Sniper
Reward: Resource-xp.png 1,750
Followup: Ambushes
Dialogue
Start mission
Npc noob full.png Sirs, we've, uh, we've received this letter, and, well—
Morgan2.png Perkins, what part of "take care of my mail" makes it sound like I want you to come talk to me about letters?
Npc noob full.png Well, sir, it's just that this one is from the Civic League of New Haven, and the Silver Wolves have that place pretty much locked down. It's kind of their headquarters.
Morgan2.png So the Silver Wolves sent us a letter?
Npc noob full.png An invitation, really. They want to meet on the road near Shigurman's Bluff and "discuss our mutual interests."
Morgan2.png Shigurman's Bluff? Seriously? It might as well just say "this is a trap!" We'll meet 'em, but we'll be ready.
Finish mission
Morgan2.png I'll be a lot more comfortable knowing that Sniper has our backs.
Npc sergeant full.png Really? After everything the Silver Wolves have done, you're happy with ONE Sniper?
Morgan2.png Yeah, you're right. Tell you what, let's bring all the tanks and rockets and stuff too.
Reward screen
Morgan2.png Better to err on the side of giant guns.

Ambushes[]

Level: 46 Prereq: An Invitation... to DANGER
Npc noob full.png Why can't I just bring my rifle? Mapicon.png Go to Shigurman's Bluff
Followup: Ambushes
Dialogue
Start mission
Morgan2.png All right, Ramsey, is everything ready?
Npc sergeant full.png Absolutely, sir. Both the counter ambush, and the counter-counter-counter ambush are in place.
Morgan2.png And the counter-counter-counter-counter-counter ambush?
Npc noob full.png Well, I found a pretty big rock to throw, but I think instead of carrying it, I should probably just find a rock AT the meeting site.
Morgan2.png So you want to show up unarmed? You make me sick, Perkins.

Ambushes[]

Level: 46 Prereq: Ambushes
Morgan2.png Where did these guys learn to ambush? Npc SilverWolf mission.png Defeat the Silver Wolves' "ambush"
Reward: Resource-xp.png 2,000
Followup: Howdy, Neighbor, Guard Duty
Dialogue
Start mission
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png That's close enough!
Drop your weapons!
Morgan2.png Seriously? You invited us! You have to pretend this is a real meeting, at least until we let our guard down. THEN you start the ambush.
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png Ambush? What... what are you talking about?
Morgan2.png Dude, you're terrible at this. You ambush, then I'll counter ambush, THEN you come out with your real ambush. You don't just threaten us before we even start talking to anyone!
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png Counter ambush? We told you we came in peace! Silver Wolves, shoot to kill!
Finish mission
Npc SWconsigliere full.png Woah, woah, gentlemen. This is a big misunderstanding. I'd say your pessimism and paranoia got the better of you, mister...
Morgan2.png It's Lieutenant Morgan. And my pessimism and paranoia are two of my most respectable traits.
Npc SWconsigliere full.png Really? A Lieutenant in what army? Look, Morgan, the world is changing rapidly. We're all trying to keep up. You guys have the knowhow and the training. My associates have the people and the money. I'm thinking we can work something out.
Morgan2.png I think you should pack up your band of thugs and get the hell out of here before I get so disgusted I forget to not murder you.
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png You son of a—
Npc SWconsigliere full.png Now, now, boys, no need for name calling. Just keep our offer in mind. Hell, if you want, we'll call you GENERAL Morgan.
Reward screen
Npc sergeant full.png So, I don't really trust those guys.
Followup
Npc engineer full~ipad.png How were the ambushes?
Morgan2.png Terrible. Total amateur hour. Oh, and they tried to talk us into joining forces.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Wait, like a truce, or... what's their angle?
Morgan2.png No idea. But I sure as hell don't trust them.

Howdy, Neighbor[]

Dialogue
Start mission
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png Hey, uh, 'scuse me!
Morgan2.png What in hell do you think you're doing here? I told you, we're not interested.
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png You guys ain't even heard what I'm suggestin'! Look, you guys got all the gear and whatnot you need to deal with stuff like Raiders and Rebels, right? But you got no sense of how to control people.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Excuse me, I happen to have more than one PhD from Cariston University that could be described in exactly the terms you've—
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png What I'm saying is, you guys got your work cut out for you just surviving. Trying to babysit all these little towns, keep 'em working... we could take that burden off your shoulders.
Morgan2.png Yeah, because you've done a bang up job so far. Look, I'm going to be clear with you on this.
Finish mission
Npc silverWolfBrute full.png You just made your last mistake, Morgan.
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png No. Come on, Doug. We're gonna let them think this over some more. Realize exactly what a bad decision they're making. For everyone.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Morgan, they've got a point. If we went to open war, we'd be pretty evenly matched. Even if we won, there'd be so many casualties...
Morgan2.png Don't worry, Floyd. I'm not gonna go all Ramsey on these guys. But I'm not gonna let them walk in here and pretend they aren't a bunch of thugs and killers, either.
Reward screen
Npc engineer full~ipad.png I mean, I went to school for YEARS.

Hunting Wolves[]

Level: 47 Prereq: Howdy, Neighbor
Npc sergeant full.png I'd rather be hunting Rebels, but these jokers are almost as good. Mapicon.png Go to the Southern Frontier
Npc SilverWolf mission.png Drive Silver Wolves away from the frontier towns
Reward: Resource-xp.png 4,000
Followup: Sarcasm is Fun!
Dialogue
Start mission
Npc sergeant full.png Morgan, the Silver Wolves are acting—
Morgan2.png Like spoiled children who walk around in their parents' clothes pretending to be responsible adults?
Npc sergeant full.png That's... surprisingly accurate. But no. They're acting... creepy, actually. Their forces have moved into spitting distance of several frontier towns, but they're not doing anything. Just sitting there.
Morgan2.png Wait, silent intimidation tactics? They can do something other than just loot and pillage?
Npc sergeant full.png I'm as surprised as you are. Still, as long as they're there, they could DO something at any moment. They need to go.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full.png Of course, you know that Stephenson isn't gonna be too pleased with us. He can't afford a full-out conflict any more than we can.
Morgan2.png Well, unless you want to let them plunder wherever they please, it was going to come to that anyway. His buddy Bronson doesn't strike me as the patient type.
Npc sergeant full.png All I'm saying is that we should be prepared. Things are going to get a lot hairier from here on in.
Reward screen
Morgan2.png Things are already so hairy, it's practically a mammoth.

Dialogue
Start mission
Npc sergeant full.png Don't look now, Morgan, but we have visitors.
Morgan2.png Welp, time to face the music. I'm gonna go see them. You go do what you need to do.
Npc SWconsigliere full.png I am disappointed. I thought you Imperials were more practical than this. Do you not already have your hands full with Rebels and Raiders? Why do you want to fight us? Do you realize how hard you're trying our patience?
Morgan2.png Hey, we don't like this any more than you do. But we don't like the whole "exploiting and looting the weak and helpless" thing either. You're the ones who aren't leaving us with a choice.
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png You aren't getting our point. Your forces are making us very... uncomfortable out there. If you continue, we can make YOUR lives very uncomfortable.
Morgan2.png Oh, uncomfortable? Why didn't you say so? I've got just the solution!
Finish mission
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png And what... is this?
Morgan2.png Well, you said you were being made uncomfortable, so I thought I'd fix that! Put your feet up, maybe have a nice glass of cognac...
Npc silverWolfBrute full.png Why, you...! I'll give you a scar to match!
Morgan2.png Mmm, very witty. Are all Silver Wolves as bright and charming as you?
Npc SWconsigliere full.png Calm down, Doug. Don't let them bait you. They don't fully grasp the situation.
Reward screen
Morgan2.png Okay, I admit that sounded ominous...

Hostage Situation[]

Npc SWleaderBronson full.png We're not the dumb thugs you think we are...
Morgan2.png Are you a different dumb thug than—
Npc silverWolfBrute full.png That's enough!
Morgan2.png Aww.
Npc SWconsigliere full.png We anticipated your... intransigence. So I have sent some of my men to visit the frontier towns you seem so eager to protect. They've made... friends there.
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png Our mutual friends are happy and safe... for now. But should you continue your reckless interference in our affairs, who knows? Maybe they encounter some unfortunate accidents. If they were to be hurt badly... that would be on your head, wouldn't it?
Morgan2.png I... see. Then I guess there's only one thing we can do.
Perkins, give the signal.
Npc noob full.png Yes, sir!
Finish mission
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png What... what just happened?
Morgan2.png See, we anticipated your anticipation of our intransigence. So we hid forces in the towns, and just waited. When your men popped up, we were ready. Not quite fast enough to keep you from your hostages, but fast enough to put you down like dogs.
Npc SWconsigliere full.png We seem to have underestimated you. We won't make that mistake again. Mark my words, Imperials, this isn't over.
Morgan2.png Well, you apparently haven't learned your lesson, so I guess not.
Reward screen
Morgan2.png And that lesson is: do NOT mess with the Empire.

Bigfoot Country[]

Level: 46 Prereq: A Job Well Done
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Bigfoots are attracted to bright colors. Npc raiderelder icon.png Go to the Raider Sanctuary

Followup: Hungry, Hungry Bigfoots
Dialogue
Start mission
Npc raiderelder full.png I would speak with you.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Oh, Elder Taos... uh, sure.
Npc raiderelder full.png This is not easy to discuss. The Sasquatch will be moving into our territory soon—
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Bigfoots? You're seriously worried about bigfoots? We get bigfoots in our basements and warehouses all the time. Just chase them out with a broom.
Npc raiderelder full.png I am not afraid of the... bigfoots. But there is a migration every five hundred years. I am worried that with the recent chaos, they may trample our crops or chase our livestock. We will be ill prepared to defend ourselves.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Defend yourselves? We're talking about BIGFOOTS. Bang some pots together. Still, this migration sounds interesting. I'll give it a look.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Wow, I've never seen bigfoots be this aggressive. What's gotten into them?
Npc raiderelder full.png It is part of the cycle. The old spiderwasp queen dies, and aggressive food collection by the hive's workers drives other animals south.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Spiderwasps? Are these a local insect?
Npc raiderelder full.png They live in the north. Spiderwasp is a nickname. The full name is Spiderwaspbearbeetle.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Oh, THIS I need to see.
Reward screen
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Nothing like Science to get the blood pumping.

Hungry, Hungry Bigfoots[]

Followup: Yeti 'Nother Problem
Dialogue
Start mission
Morgan2.png Hey, Floyd? Noticed anything... unusual lately?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png I have been a little occupied with my research... Why do you ask?
Morgan2.png Oh, no reason. I was just wondering what you knew about what bigfoots eat.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well, they're omnivores, like most primates... Again, why do you ask?
Morgan2.png Because we need to deal with the several dozen bigfoots who have invaded our outpost and are eating every scrap of food we have.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png What are you talking ab– Hey, there are bigfoots all over the place! Why didn't someone tell me about this?
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Amazing! I've never seen bigfoots eat so much! Oh, I do hope this happens again so I can take better notes!
Morgan2.png If this happens again, you'll be too busy cooking Perkins into a stew to care about notes. How about you concentrate on how to keep them from starving us to death?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Oh, that's simple. Either this culling will scare the others into moving on, or they'll do it themselves... once they've eaten all the food.
Morgan2.png Marvelous. Lucky for me I still have my secret stash of frozen burritos.
Reward screen
Morgan2.png Did I say secret stash? I have no such thing. Really.

Followup: Bigfoot Genocide
Dialogue
Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is, the bigfoots have moved on.
Morgan2.png I noticed. Lack of bigfoots is just as obvious as their presence. So what's the bad news?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png They had to go somewhere. And right now they're ravaging neighboring frontier towns, including Sundale, a farming community.
Morgan2.png Oh, man, the bigfoots will be like locusts... only without wings. And bigger. And hairier. And smellier. And with hands instead of pinchers. So really, not that much like locusts, other than the eating... anyway, the point is, they're gonna need our help.
Finish mission
Morgan2.png Y'know, if these bigfoots are gonna continue to be a problem, maybe we should find bigger and meaner critters who'll be their predators. No, wait, we could BREED some! We could start introducing them everywhere...
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Brilliant, Morgan. Nothing could possibly go wrong with that. Leave the Science to me, please?
Morgan2.png You know, it would be nice if once, just once, you were happy when I took an interest.
Reward screen
Morgan2.png Floyd can be so cold.

Npc noob full.png Sir, we're getting reports from Trotbeck - it's—
Morgan2.png Silver Wolves, Rebels, or Raiders?
Npc noob full.png Uh, bigfoots, sir.
Morgan2.png Really? It's just so silly. I mean, who's scared of a bigfoot? Just open your arms up wide to look big, and they'll scurry off into the bushes.
Finish mission
Npc-portrait-Ma Pierce.png Well, you've certainly cured the symptom.
Now, aren't you the least bit concerned what's causing this?
Npc raiderelder full.png The Pierce Matriarch is correct.
It is unusual for the bigfoots to continue their southern rampage this long. There is something wrong in their homelands.
Morgan2.png TAOS. SERIOUSLY.
You need to stop sneaking up on people like that. How did you even know I was here?
Npc raiderelder full.png Your servant boy, Perkins, informed me.
Reward screen
Npc raiderelder full.png I enjoy startling the Skinny Beast.

Bigfoot Homeland[]

Level: 47 Prereq: Bigfoot Genocide
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Bigfoots like simple shapes and puzzles. Mapicon.png Travel to the Bigfoot Habitat
Followup: Bigfoot Homeland
Dialogue
Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png If Taos is right, and the bigfoots are more aggressive than ever, we should investigate their natural habitat.
Morgan2.png What's their natural habitat? Don't they just live in sewers and eat people's garbage?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Now, Morgan, those are just myths. Bigfoots are actually clever, curious creatures. Sometimes they wander into our settlements, and they wind up hiding in a basement or drainpipe out of fear or confusion, but most of them live peacefully in the northwest.
Morgan2.png I'll believe it when I see it.

Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png My goodness! The level of complexity is far beyond what we expected.
Morgan2.png Really? It's just a bunch of crappy little lean-tos.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Morgan, they've built shelters! Look at the logs around the fire! They clearly have complex social behaviors!
Morgan2.png Well, it looks like they've pretty much abandoned the place.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png And I think I see why. Spiderwasps!
Finish mission
Morgan2.png Well, that wasn't so bad.
Hopefully now the bigfoots will come home and do whatever dumb stuff bigfoots normally do.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png I sincerely doubt it.
The spiderwasp forces we just defeated are likely worker drones. They were just out collecting food. It seems their new queen is still hungry.
Reward screen
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Something is upsetting the natural order.

Followup: Do Fence Us In, Bigfoot Boot Camp
Dialogue
Start mission
Morgan2.png So, if those are just worker drones, and we kill all of them, doesn't that solve the problem?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png First, it's unlikely that we could accomplish such a goal. Second, they appear to be an apex predator. Wiping them out would likely further upset the ecosystem, and have massive unintended consequences.
Morgan2.png What do you recommend?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well, longer term, I'm going to need to do some research, and see if I can figure out why their collection of nourishment is taking longer than normal. In the short term, I'd say we should focus on defeating the more aggressive warrior spiderwasps that have advanced on our position.
Morgan2.png What are you talking... oh, those guys. Yipes.
Finish mission
Morgan2.png You know what?
Forget it, I'm going home.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Morgan, we can't just ignore this problem. Something very bad is happening out here.
Morgan2.png I'm not ignoring it. I'm just admitting when I've got too much on my plate. Between Rebels, Silver Wolves, and civil unrest, I can't tackle this right now.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well, don't leave it on the back burner too long. This isn't getting fixed by itself.
Reward screen
Morgan2.png Has any problem ever been fixed by itself?

Npc mechanic full~ipad.png Floyd, I heard about the bigfoots! It's just awful!
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Indeed it is, Zoey!
We were on totally the wrong track all this time! If only we'd gotten funding to research their natural habitat sooner - we'd be years ahead in our understanding! With the Empire gone, who KNOWS when I'll have time to-
Npc mechanic full~ipad.png What the... Floyd! I'm talking about how it turns out they're tool using, problem solving social animals! They're harmless, and we've been gunning them down!
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Ah... yes. There is that. What do you suggest?
Npc mechanic full~ipad.png Well, why don't we try to keep them out, build fences or something?
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Sorry, Zoey, I'm afraid the fences are a little... less than successful.
Npc mechanic full~ipad.png It's not stopping them?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well, most of them are going around. Some of them are getting caught in the razor wire. Mostly juveniles. They won't stop crying.

Npc noob full.png I don't know about this, Zoey. Floyd asked me to help, but I feel like—
Npc mechanic full~ipad.png Don't worry, Perkins, you leave the thinking and the feeling to me. Just collect the food and carry it out to the bigfoots.
Npc noob full.png Oh... OK. Yes, ma'am.
Finish mission
Npc noob full.png Zoey, help!
Npc mechanic full~ipad.png What's wrong?
Npc noob full.png It's the bigfoots! Now that I've fed them, they won't stop following me around. They're getting pretty aggressive!

Npc noob full.png Wow, you sure know a lot about this Ancient tech stuff...
Npc adventurer full~ipad.png But of course. Any good explorer must do their research. Ah! That one there was a magnetic field generator! And that over there, of course, is a group of Silver Wolves scavenging for parts.
Npc noob full.png So what's the thing with the two— Wait, what was that last part again?
Finish mission
Npc adventurer full~ipad.png Serves them right, meddling with forces they can barely comprehend! Why, if they'd finished removing that tungsten fusion battery, they would've blown half this region to smithereens!
Npc noob full.png Really?! So, uh... Will we be okay?
Npc adventurer full~ipad.png Naturally! I'm here, after all. Just... don't touch anything. It's better if you don't know what could happen if you were to bump against the wrong button.

Npc noob full.png Hmm, looks like this one's not locked. This should be—
Npc adventurer full~ipad.png PERKINS! Don't take another step!
That was close; you almost activated the automatic defenses! They would have sliced you into microparticles in moments!
Npc noob full.png I... Gulp! Thanks for the warning! But how do we get past them?
Npc adventurer full~ipad.png Now that's a bit of a sticky problem. We'd need protection as thick as a concrete wall. Yet to reach the vault itself, that protection would have to move with us! Where on earth would we find something like that?
Finish mission
Npc adventurer full~ipad.png Excellent! Now we can follow the wall to the vault! Walk behind it... Keep up, now! Drop too far behind, and you'll certainly regret it!
Npc noob full.png Wow, the wall's taking a beating! What kind of weapons are these?
Npc adventurer full~ipad.png Oh, the usual assortment: sonic bullets, lasers, particle beams, pico-missiles... Hopefully, the wall will be able to take the damage.

Morgan2.png Uranium? What does uranium have to do with us?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png It's what we were sent here to get in the first place, remember?
Morgan2.png Oh, right. Between ducking bullets and pacifying seven foot tall Raiders who want to rip my head off, sometimes I forget these details. So what about the uranium?
Npc noob full.png Well, I'd been hearing rumors of a mine that makes people sick, like uranium would. I've found a local who can tell us where it is, but it won't be cheap.
Morgan2.png Nothing worth having ever is.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png We checked out the information the local gave us. There is indeed a mine where he said it was.
Morgan2.png And?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png And... it's very curious. It's there, but it's been abandoned for decades, maybe centuries. It's too new for the Ancients to have dug, but far too old for any other civilization we know of.
Morgan2.png But there's no uranium there NOW? We were conned.

Morgan2.png Floyd, what do you know about uranium?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Not much; this is top secret material. It's a rock... and if you stand too close to it for too long, you'll die. I assume the Empire needed it for some weapon or other, but I only had enough clearance to mine it safely...
I must say, I'm not used to this level of intellectual curiosity from you. Mind explaining why you wanted to know?
Morgan2.png Certainly. If I'm going to interrogate that guy who cheated us to find out if he knows more than he's telling, I'll need to know about uranium to tell truth from lies.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png And by "interrogate," I assume you mean "beat him until he sobs like a child."
Morgan2.png Of course!
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well? Are you satisfied? Have you indulged your juvenile need for revenge?
Morgan2.png Yes and yes, thank you! And I got our bars back!

Npc engineer full~ipad.png I'm serious, Morgan. This could be key to figuring out why we were sent for uranium to begin with, and how to use it to our advantage in the war! But I'll need more data. And for that, I'll need the right tools...

Npc sheriffPierce full.png No, nothing like that, Lieutenant Morgan. It's just that... well, see, some of the workers in the mines and factories think it's unfair for the foremen to get the better share of food from Sundale.
It didn't seem like a big deal, but some of their protests turned... violent.

Npc sundaleCitizen full.png Yeah, we send Skarborough food as part of a fair trade agreement for iron. But did you know that 60% of the food goes to 2% of the people in Skarborough?
Fact is, those workers don't need foremen. They deserve to lead themselves through collective consensus, and only then will they forge a system of equitable distribution of wealth.

Npc noob full.png Actually, sir... I did. I figured we could try to get ahead of them if they tried for another town.
Morgan2.png That was a clever insight, backed up by bold action. Remind me to punish you later for bypassing the chain of command.
Npc noob full.png Yes, sir. Anyway, they seem to be concentrating in the area around Recoil Ridge.
Morgan2.png Then we'll have to move fast. Send Sheriff Colt a warning. Hopefully he'll be able to hold out until we get there.

Morgan2.png No "suppose" about it. Any idea where these jokers are heading next, Taos?

Npc-portrait-Ma Pierce.png Mine too. I tried to reason with 'em, tell 'em that the Raiders who attacked us were renegades, but they wouldn't listen. They've joined up with Colt's folks and gone to attack that Raider settlement near the lake!

Npc I17ScientistAurora full.png It is exactly those, ahem, "cool weapons" that are at issue here. We were delivering crates containing highly advanced weapon prototypes to Cariston right before the Empire fell. They vanished somewhere along the way. We want them back.
Morgan2.png Well, at least we know the Rebels don't have them, then. The Raiders were busy with us at the time, so that leaves the Silver Wolves. Of course.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png I wager the Silver Wolves are still hungry for new technology and weapons, especially with the problems we're giving them. Perhaps if we were to offer them another "shipment" of weapons, we could draw them out.
Finish mission
Morgan2.png So we're offering the Silver Wolves actual laser rifles? Why don't we just lend them a few tanks while we're at it?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png These rifles look impressive, but their power output is extremely low. If we want to attract the Silver Wolves, they have to at least appear functional.
Morgan2.png And that thing?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png It... beeps. And sparks. And has little flashing lights. That's... about it.

Npc sharpshooter full~ipad.png All right, their defenses are heavy, but they're sloppy. If we're careful, we can pick our way through with minimal conflict.
Npc sergeant full.png Alternately, we can just destroy everything in our path. You know, your call.
Finish mission
Npc sharpshooter full~ipad.png All set. We can move in to retake the prisoner whenever you're ready.

Npc noob full.png We're close, sir, but there's... a small hiccup.
Morgan2.png What did you do?
Npc noob full.png Well, it looks like they have more than one prisoner and... we don't know which one is the administrator, or who any of the others are.
Morgan2.png I'm not totally sure how that's your fault, but I'll accept that it is. In the meantime, just rescue everyone, and leave them tied up. We'll sort it out when we get home.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full.png Woo!
That's the Imperial Army I remember! Great work, folks!
Npc noob full.png Sirs? Shouldn't we get home so I can start, you know, figuring out who all these prisoners are?
Morgan2.png Man, Perkins, you sure know how to ruin a celebration. Let's all do what Specialist Killjoy says. Let's all just go home and get back to work.

Npc sheriffPierce full.png Folks, I hate to interrupt, but, well, it seems you've gotten the Silver Wolves mighty upset. And they're... well, they're taking it out on me.
Morgan2.png Sheriff! You did it! You asked for help! If I weren't in such a hurry to save your town, I'd hug you!
Finish mission
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png See what you did?
You took something from me. That means I take something from you.
Morgan2.png Leave these people out of it. You want us, you come get us.
Npc SWleaderBronson full.png Why would I do that? Why would I attack you at the outpost, when you got all these towns, these soft, white bellies I can slash at. You made yourself weak. I'm gonna show you how weak.

Npc engineer full~ipad.png What can we do?
Npc sheriffPierce full.png You can catch them Silver Wolves and make sure they don't do this again.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Certainly, and Morgan and Ramsey are hard at work on that. Now, myself, Zoey, the other civilians - what can WE do?
Npc sheriffPierce full.png Folks just want to get things fixed up and get back to work.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png That I can do.
Finish mission
Npc sheriffPierce full.png Thanks, folks.
I don't know what we'd do without y'all lookin' out for us.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well, you'd likely have been subjugated by the Silver Wolves. They probably would have kept the skilled laborers alive, and some of the families, both for morale and as leverage. Administrative persons such as yourself would likely have been the first to—
Npc sheriffPierce full.png That's, uh, that's plenty of detail, Floyd. Thanks.
