Followup: A Bad Taste
Dialogue
Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Perkins, I have a special assignment for you.
Npc noob full.png Please don't make me inseminate raptors again. I still don't have all the feeling back in my left hand.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png No, the cross-breeding raptors and boars experiment is finished. It was a dismal failure and I partially blame you.
I've been researching ways to reduce the amount of time our troops spend in the hospital. The young sandworm has the rare ability to regenerate parts of its body. Go find one and collect some of its skin.

Dialogue
Start mission
Npc noob full.png Sir, can I go lay down? I'm not feeling so well.
Morgan2.png Good lord, Perkins, you look like a bigfoot chewed you up and spit you out.
Don't get too close to me.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Perkins, when did you start noticing these symptoms?
Npc noob full.png About the time I got home with the sandworm you asked for.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png You didn't happen to… ingest anything, did you?
Npc noob full.png No. I mean, I might've swallowed some of its ichor when it… exploded.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Perkins! What have I told you about keeping your mouth open while fighting sandworms!?
That wasn't ichor. He's contracted a deadly parasite. If the thing is allowed to grow to maturation, it'll burst out of his chest. I'll spare you the gory details, but we must administer treatment.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Our attempts to cure the sandworm parasite have proven unsuccessful.
Sorry Perkins, what do you want on your epitaph?
Npc noob full.png HHRRRraaaahGHHHHHHHHHH
Npc raiderkids full.png You swallowed a parasite? Woah!
Not even my Daddy is brave enough to do that!
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Children, you know about this particular condition?

Finish mission
Npc raiderkids full.png Elder, Elder! Perkins swallowed a sandworm parasite and he may die so I guess he's pretty brave so we brought him to you!
Npc raiderelder full.png Morgan's slave boy undertook one of our most sacred rituals?
Npc noob full.png I just need to know how to get it out of me.
Npc raiderelder full.png There is no getting rid of The Sacred Passenger. It chooses those it deems worthy, and destroys those it does not.
All are profoundly affected by its influence.
Npc noob full.png Affected…how?
Npc raiderelder full.png Blades in Moonlight once carried The Sacred Passenger. She was… changed.
I will take you into our purification yurt and give you advisement. The rest is up to you, and The Sacred Passenger.

Dialogue
Start mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad.png Has anyone seen Perkins lately?
Morgan2.png Come to think of it, no. And I really needed someone to do a long delayed routine cleaning of the sewage system.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Perkins swallowed a deadly sandworm parasite, which is apparently part of some ancient raider ritual, so the children took him to Taos.
I haven't seen him since.
Morgan2.png You mean I have to go save his ass?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png I mean, to make you feel better, he's probably dead by now.

Npc engineer full~ipad.png Ah, Lieutenant, I think I've surmised what happened to Perkins…
Morgan2.png Good, I'm already sick of being here. Where is he so I can punish him?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png It appears the sandworm burst from his chest and is heading straight for us.
Finish mission

Morgan2.png I don't give a damn about culture right now! What I do care about is not getting chewed up and spit out like Perkins!
Npc noob full.png I'm right here.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Where did all the sandworms go?
Finish mission
Morgan2.png You're alive! And… you scared the sandworms off.
Npc noob full.png I told them to go away. The little ones listen to me now. It's kind of weird.
Morgan2.png What about the big ones?
Npc noob full.png They'll just try to kill me for dominance.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png This is a phenomenal scientific discovery! How did you survive the parasite?
Npc noob full.png Can we please just get out of here? The whole thing was awkward and the raiders are building a statue in my honor and I really, REALLY don't want to talk about it.

Start mission
Npc noob full.png Sir, I assume that you've noticed, but, well, we keep getting shot at by Rebels.
Morgan2.png Yes Perkins, I HAD noticed. I know you'd think being shot at would just sort of fade into the background for me by now, but, nope, still gets my attention.
Npc noob full.png Were you working on some kind of a plan? Some way of dealing with it?
Morgan2.png A plan for taking on the enormous Rebel army that has already destroyed our capital, defeated our armies and killed our Emperor? Yeah, I thought I might kill them.
Finish mission
Morgan2.png See? It was a great plan. Dead people rarely, if ever, shoot you.

Morgan2.png Floyd, if you were going to blow up a bridge—
Npc engineer full~ipad.png I wouldn't, destroying civic infrastructure is abhorrent.
Morgan2.png OK, but if you were because like… you needed to build a better bridge there… that helped ease migration for… ducks or something… if you were going to do that, how would you go about it?
I'll take my answer in the form of a diagram and construction plans.
Finish mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad.png All done with the bridge explosives LT!
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Now, when do we build the new, duck friendly bridge?

Finish mission
Morgan2.png Sweet! What do we get?
Npc I17ScientistAurora full.png You get a production line ready to start producing prototypes once we have the parts. We'll have actual weapons soon.

Morgan2.png Imperials have a saying, "Let the punishment fit the crime." Do you Raiders have anything like that?
Npc raiderkids full.png Kind of? "An eye for an eye. An eye for a tooth. An eye for a hand. An eye for a boar." They really encourage blinding people as punishment.
Morgan2.png Well, this is kind of like that. As punishment for stealing our tanks, you guys are going to need to steal some tanks. Oh, but from the Rebels. That's the punishment part.
Finish mission
Npc raiderkids full.png It was really scary but we managed to get one of their Heavier Tanks!
Morgan2.png I hope you've learned your lesson. It's not okay to steal. Unless you're cutting me in on it, that's different.

Good news, I've done some more research, and I have a new hypothesis on the extended harvest period the Spiderwasps have been experiencing!
Morgan2.png Floyd, I've been wanting to talk to you about this. You're a civil engineer. You are not a zoologist. Please stop meddling with nature. Do civil engineer stuff.
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Way ahead of you! I was performing a groundwater survey, when I came across some anomalous data. I need to do some more research, but I think one of the more important northern rivers has been poisoned.
Morgan2.png Sure, go put little strips of PH paper in the water or whatever. Have fun.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Morgan, I've made some startling discoveries about the water in that river.
Morgan2.png Yeah? Is there like, I don't know, some kind of fungus, and you're gonna try to kill it, but instead it will mutate and eat Perkins?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Far more confusing. The water supply is tainted, but I have no idea with what. I can't find any traces of toxins or biological contaminants. In fact, if anything, the water is too clean. there's almost no bacteria in it.

Morgan2.png Wow, the weird news didn't disappoint. Bad news?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png There are a bunch of animals living in the mine who think it works just fine as a cave and should not be explored for Science.
Morgan2.png Well… go ahead and get rid of them. Or don't. I've decided not to care.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad.png More news, and a lot of questions.
Morgan2.png Was there another, small mine inside the mine?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png No, there was uranium. That's what was poisoning the water, extending the spiderwasps harvest, and causing all these issues.
Morgan2.png Uranium! That's that stuff we wanted! This is good, right?
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Morgan, as far as I'm aware, with the fall of the empire, there's not a single facility in the world capable of refining or making any use whatsoever of that uranium. i17, MAYBE, with months of work, but even then…

Npc engineer full~ipad.png Well, given that it's not 500 years old and built by an unknown culture that seems to have developed well before any known, no, it's not like that other mine.
As for being empty, I don't believe so, but it's dangerous to spend much time deep in the mine without protection.
Morgan2.png Wait, Floyd, are you asking me if you can borrow -
Npc engineer full~ipad.png Hazmat suits Morgan. I'm going to make Hazmat suits.
Morgan2.png Ok, cool, because like, the other things… they're not easy to get out here. And I need mine. All of them.

Npc engineer full~ipad.png We've made a reasonably thorough examination of the mine. There is, to say the least, plenty of Uranium, given that we don't know what it does or how to use it. The mine looks nearly brand new.
