Morgan2 Damn right, we did! He's one of those guys... right?
Npc I17ScientistAurora full Wh-why do you have him tied up? Is he being held prisoner?
Morgan2 The Silver Wolves had all these guys, and we've been trying to sort out who's safe to let go and who's not. So... kind of?
Npc Archibald full Aurora! Who are these people? Please help me!
Morgan2 Sorry about that, we'll fix him up. Get him a hot meal and a fresh pair of boots.

Npc Archibald full Aurora, it's good to see you. Any news?
Npc I17ScientistAurora full Nothing good. If there are any Imperial resistance cells still operating, they've gone dark. We haven't heard anything in months. As far as we can tell, these guys are the only Imperial holdouts left.
Morgan2 Yup. Just us. Oh, she forgot all the stuff about Rebels in the Heartland, and the roving gangs of thugs, but since they were holding you prisoner, you're probably familiar with them.
Npc Archibald full Indeed. It seems I owe you thanks for more than my rescue.
Morgan2 You know what would have made all of that easier? If we had some lasers. That would be nice. If only someone who knew how to develop and operate lasers owed us their lives, and had all hopes for their continued existence intertwined with our own.
Npc Archibald full Your point is made. Assuming Aurora approves, I'd be willing to give you the plans to create a facility capable of basic laser production. We can move forward from there.
Finish mission
Npc Archibald full There you are, Lieutenant Morgan. You've taken quite the burden on your shoulders. I sincerely hope you know what you're doing.

Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Morgan, while I'm excited about the military applications of our new laser tech, I don't think we should underestimate the potential civic value. I think I can make cuts on the order of 5% from our average build time if—
Morgan2 Here's an idea: how about I arm our troops FIRST, and then you can survive to do some experiments or whatever when we're not all living in constant fear for our very lives?
Npc engineer full~ipad I suppose you have a point... still, I don't think we should undervalue the cost savings afforded by laser-honed skill saws.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Gentlemen, I stand before you at the dawn of a new era. The era of shooting perfectly round cauterized holes into our enemies.

Npc engineer full~ipad Morgan, before we go rushing out into combat with these new Laser Troopers, don't you think it would be appropriate to do a bit of field testing?
Morgan2 Floyd, are you asking because you want to verify the quality of our work, or because you want to watch guys blow stuff up with Lasers?
Npc engineer full~ipad A little of both?

Morgan2 Floyd, I've been thinking: now that we have lasers, making us the best equipped army in the Frontier, if not all of Ateria, we have certain responsibilities.
Npc engineer full~ipad I must agree. It falls on us to maintain order, to establish a precedent of judicious applications of power, and to maintain order by demonstrating restraint.
Morgan2 Yeah, totally. Eventually, I mean. First, I'm going to go shoot some of those Armored Mammoth Riders with lasers. Those guys are dicks.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Is your need to express dominance sated?
Morgan2 I was gonna lie and say yes, but screw it, I'm totally going to keep doing this. Like for a while.

Morgan2 Ramsey, I'm so glad I can be here for you.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full Huh. I gotta say, Morgan, that felt kinda empty.
Morgan2 Are you kidding? It's great! You find a thing that used to scare you, and you shoot it with a laser!

Npc engineer full~ipad Do what you must.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad How was the hunt?
Morgan2 You!
You tricked me into using the lasers in a responsible and respectful manner, improving the lives and safety of those around me!
Npc engineer full~ipad That's right. Rather than try to stop you, I allowed the whole thing to run its natural course. Before long, shooting things with lasers—
Morgan2 Turned into work. Damn. You win. I'll stop stirring up trouble, and only use the lasers on the dozens of legitimate threats we face every day.

Morgan2 Boars, eh? Well, that should be simple to take care of. I'll send a few Hunters to...
Npc jonesy full No, no! Don't hurt the boars! It's not their fault! We, humanity, are the intruders in their natural world! Sundale would rather starve than let these magnificent creatures be harmed in our name.

Morgan2 Or just cook 'em from the inside out. I'd make Perkins do the processing...
Npc noob full Mommy? Mommy? Do I have to go to school, Mommy?

Npc engineer full~ipad The most efficient delivery method would be to dissolve the powder in water and set up a series of sprinklers to spread it over Sundale's fields in aerosol form.
Morgan2 Just to ask... what exactly will this do to their crops?
Npc engineer full~ipad Oh, only make them a little spicier. I've already sent over my patented antacids.
Morgan2 Okay, fine, but if this ends up creating boars that breathe fire, YOU'RE the one who's going to have to handle them.

Npc engineer full~ipad Yes? And? It worked, didn't it?

Npc-portrait-Ma Pierce Hello, Lieutenant. I hear you've been making yourself useful around these parts. I didn't think you all had it in you, but I'm glad this was one of those rare times I was wrong.
Morgan2 Thanks... I think. But you don't strike me as the kind who just stops by to issue mildly backhanded compliments...
Npc-portrait-Ma Pierce And you would be right. I don't believe the Silver Wolves are gone. I'm certain they're somewhere nearby, laying low for a future surprise attack. I think this is the time to sniff them out, before they can put any plots into motion.
Morgan2 That's actually a good idea. I wouldn't trust the Silver Wolves as far as I can throw them. And frankly, I throw like a little girl.
Npc-portrait-Ma Pierce Unfortunately, I don't have any information as to where they might be hiding out. You'll just have to search some of the frontier towns until you find 'em. I wish you luck — for all our sakes.

Npc sheriffPierce full Well, if it isn't Lieutenant Morgan! I promise we don't have a crisis on our hands that I haven't told you about...

Npc sheriffPierce full Nope, can't say I have, and I've been keeping a sharp eye out. Is there a problem I should know about?

Morgan2 Wait, we were supposed to do that? We've killed dozens of Sandworms already and nothing happened!
Npc raiderelder full That is because the Elder Sandworm was not then stirring in its slumber, the death of its warren-mates calling out for vengeance.

Morgan2 But that would require tracking down and fighting Silver Wolves! … Hell, I would've done that for free!
Finish mission
Npc Archibald full Mm hm. Mm hm. Mm hmmmmm...
Morgan2 Are you going to tell us something, or just grunt at us all day?
Npc Archibald full These are our prototypes, all right. We never missed them because they were supposed to have been junked for major design flaws. They're listed in our system as having been destroyed, but here they are, in the hands of the Silver Wolves.
Morgan2 Wait, they've been fighting us to a standstill with flawed prototypes? Ramsey, double the brutality of our training, starting now!

Npc mechanic full~ipad We've tried everything, and nothin' seems to work! I just need ONE lousy bigfoot in the Bigfoot Camp to get started! Maybe I can herd them by plantin' a series of high-yield explosives and-
Npc engineer full~ipad OR we can try something a little simpler. Remember, the bigfoots are here in the first place because they're hungry. Perhaps food could lure them in?

Npc mechanic full~ipad I wanna use my bigfoots to teach other bigfoots how to defend themselves too! That way, they can deal with the spiderwasps like they're supposed to, instead of us! All I need is some food to give 'em...

Morgan2 Nothing personal? You're letting a bunch of murderous thugs stage troops just outside my backyard, and you tell me it's nothing personal? I never expected you could stoop this low!

Morgan2 So that's it? You've got us pinned down? What now, you call Bronson and his thugs to come put us down?
Npc-portrait-Sheriff Colt Nah, these fools talk so dang much, I already know everything I need to know. I figure I'll let you go, and we can do that double reverse ambush you talked about.

Npc sergeant full Wait… what?
Npc-portrait-Sheriff Colt I been on your side the whole time, ya damn fool! I just roughed you up to get these Silver Wolves to lower their guard!
Finish mission
Morgan2 So seriously, they already told you their plan?
Npc-portrait-Sheriff Colt Yup! Honestly, I think that Bronson is kinda lonely. He just wanted someone to talk to.
Morgan2 So, when were they planning to move on the Outpost?
Npc-portrait-Sheriff Colt Oh, they've pretty much given up fightin' you on your home turf. They was planning to head east, and attack some secret Installation. Said once they had that, nobody'd be able to stop 'em.
Morgan2 Well… crap.

Npc noob full Reports are in, sir. The Silver Wolves have started sending troops east. We don't have much time to cut them off.
Morgan2 Ramsey, you heard Perkins. Let's get the men ready to move.
Npc sergeant full Sir, I'm not sure we're ready. The weather in the Eastern Wastes is rough. A lot of our hardware might not run in that cold.
Morgan2 No better way to find out than by going.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Okay, Ramsey, good call. We're going to need to do some serious cold weather prep for this.
Npc sergeant full Let's head home. I'm sure Zoey and Floyd can put something together that'll get us back in the game.

Npc engineer full~ipad Indeed, none of our gear is rated for that kind of weather. I'm sure Zoey and I can put something together.
Npc mechanic full~ipad Oh! What about a tank that was just, like, on fire all the time?
Morgan2 Let's not stop brainstorming just yet.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full Zoey, you've outdone yourself!
Npc mechanic full~ipad The insulation Floyd and I put together might slow you down a little, but it does double duty as armor. If you can't move, at least getting shot ain't so bad.

Npc engineer full~ipad Morgan, I just received a message from Aurora. While we were getting our things together, the Silver Wolves started attacking the Installation!
Morgan2 Did she give us coordinates for the base, by chance?
Npc engineer full~ipad Yes and no?
She didn't encode the signal nearly as well as she usually does, which is basically the same thing. It's probably as close as she can get to actually just telling us where to go.
Finish mission
Npc Archibald full Thank goodness you came! Our men simply aren't trained for this kind of thing.
Morgan2 Well, that's convenient. My men are trained pretty much exactly for this sort of thing.

Npc engineer full~ipad I'm just sorry we couldn't get here sooner. We'll want disinfectant and bandages for the wounded, and some metal patch kits for the structural damage.
Npc I17ScientistAurora full We're in your hands. I wouldn't have known what to do. I just... we have no experience with this kind of thing.
Npc engineer full~ipad Sadly, we do.

Morgan2 Ramsey, give me good news.
Npc sergeant full Glad to be able to. Silver Wolves were inbound, but storms have scrambled them. They're lost all over the Eastern Wasteland.
Morgan2 Finally, some luck. Let's move out and clean them up before they can regroup.
Finish mission
Npc noob full Sir, I'm worried that this is going a little too smoothly. Like, they're scattered all over the place, but they don't really seem to be regrouping, or doing much of anything...
Morgan2 Perkins, are you suggesting I've been out-strategized? That, once again, the Silver Wolves have diverted my attention from the real target? Because - and I think this is clear - we have their real target, Installation 17, extremely well defended and—

Npc sergeant full All due respect, sir? It doesn't matter. Silver Wolves are attacking our people, and we're going to stop them.
Morgan2 A fair point, Sergeant.
Finish mission
Npc SWleaderBronson full How's it feel, mister Morgan? Always scrambling to keep up? Never in control? And to know it's your fault? After all, you could have avoided this.
Morgan2 When you and your Silver Wolves shoot innocent people, no matter how you spin it, I don't think it's my fault. I don't know, maybe I'm weird.

Finish mission
Npc SWleaderBronson full This isn't over. There are more of us than you could ever hope to stop. We're gonna swallow you up.
Morgan2 Not over, huh? You know what, he's right. This is the beginning. This guy thinks he knows war? He's never seen anything. We'll show him war. We'll show him the Imperial Army. No more playing defense, no more scrambling.
This is the army that conquered Ateria. This is the army that controlled most of the known world for half a century. This is the army that will fall on the Silver Wolves and grind them into nothing.

Npc noob full I can't say I do, sir; I haven't had a hot shower in two weeks.
Morgan2 You smell like it, too. And you call yourself an Imperial soldier! Anyway, do whatever you have to do to get my shower running again. Oh, and I better not catch you actually using it, or there'll be hell to pay!
Finish mission
Npc noob full Sir... I poured the strongest drain cleaner the Distillery could make down the shower drain. It didn't work.
Morgan2 The Distillery can make drain cleaner...? Huh. Anyway, I'm displeased to hear about your failure. I'm sure it's your fault somehow.
Npc noob full Of course, sir.

Morgan2 So what you're saying is, after taking apart the plumbing and putting it back together FOUR times on my orders, you STILL haven't figured out the problem with my shower?
Npc noob full Not yet, sir. Do I need to go for number five?
Morgan2 No, this obviously isn't working. So we'll have to take a drastic and nauseating step. And by 'we,' obviously, I mean 'you.'
Npc noob full Yes, sir…?
Morgan2 You'll have to go down into the sewers and clear out the blockage. Talk to Floyd about making you a suit. I won't have you smelling up this outpost any more than you already have.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Perkins? Finally, you're... PERKINS! You're dripping sewage all over my area rug! You're cleaning that up, mister!
Npc noob full Rats!

Npc noob full No, sir, actual rats! In the sewer! They're all over the place! There are so many, they were clogging up the pipes! That's what was causing the clog!
Morgan2 That's hideous and repulsive. I don't envy the poor sap who has to go down there and take care of the problem.

Npc noob full I don't suppose Mr. Purrface could do this, could he? He was pretty good at dealing with rats before...
Morgan2 Mr. Purrface is... unavailable right now. Ramsey said something about "sunbeam time." Anyway, I took the initiative and flushed, just, a TON of bleach down the drain to drive out the rats.
Npc noob full Uh, sir... Is that safe?
Morgan2 Hell, no! But it worked! They were driven right out of the sewers and the pipes... but now they're running rampant across the whole outpost. I pity the poor sap who has to wade through that tide of vermin.
Welp, good luck, Perkins. Don't come back until you've cleared them all out.
Npc noob full Yes, sir.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Ahhh, a nice hot shower, and no standing water to bring down the experience! I am fully relaxed and satisfied now!
Npc noob full I'm very happy for you, sir. Reporting in: all the rats are gone now.
Morgan2 Perkins! You reek of sweat and rat!
Go take a shower! Hell, take fifty! Oh, but you won't have any hot water because I just used it all, so just soak in ice-cold water until you don't smell. Or you pass out. Either way, at least you won't be here, stinking up the place.
