Start mission
Npc noob full Sirs, shouldn't we be following up on that stuff General Ashe was talking about? The incredibly dangerous enemy hiding in the shadows, turning the world against us?
Morgan2 Yeah, cool idea Perkins.
Instead of, like, running the Outpost, trying to survive Rebel attacks and keeping the Frontier safe, I'll spend all my time following up on the deranged last words of a man who betrayed every army he ever joined.
Npc noob full I know the source is less than reliable, but think about it. What makes more sense, that we're the target of some kind of evil mastermind, manipulating events against us, or our luck is actually just THIS bad?
Finish mission
Morgan2 Perkins!
What the hell is this? A Rebel uniform?
Npc noob full I'm going undercover, sir. I need to find out more about their source.
Morgan2 Are you kidding me? It's suicide! I don't care what Ashe said! You're to stay at the Outpost. That's an order.
Also, can you get the blood stains out of these pants? That's an order too.

Npc noob full Are you sure about this Sarge? Lieutenant Morgan seemed pretty pissed off at the very idea of me going undercover.
Npc sergeant full Look, either you'll turn out to be right, and you'll get the intel, or he'll turn out to be right, and then he'll have an excuse to punish you. Either way, Morgan is happy.
Npc noob full Alright Sarge, what's the plan?
Npc sergeant full It's The Prodigal Son, Perkins, a flimflam. We'll intercept some Rebel reinforcements, wipe them out, then give you the identity of the lowest ranking man.
You say you hid, your whole unit was wiped out, not sure how you survived, very traumatized, all that jazz. Then when their backs are turned, you steal everything you can get your hands on and hit the bricks.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full Alright Perkins, you'll be taking on the role of Private Buntain. Remember to respond to your fake name, act really overwhelmed, and try not to get killed.

Npc sergeant full Yeah, about that…
He's undercover in a Rebel camp in the Heartland, attempting to extract details on the mole who is compromising the security of the outpost or die trying.
Morgan2 Oh man, that little bastard better not die trying! I SPECIFICALLY told him not to die trying!
Finish mission
Morgan2 Perkins! I have a really vivid memory where I told you not to do the thing you just did. I don't… I don't even…
I mean, you know how mad I get at you normally, can you imagine how angry I am with you when you're actively insubordinate?
Npc noob full I have details on a half dozen leaks, including two in Recoil Ridge, and a good twenty more solid leads.

Npc sergeant full Lieutenant, permission to take a short leave this afternoon.
Morgan2 Ramsey, we've talked about this, you're allowed to relax in the evening unless you're specifically on duty. You don't have to request leave.
Npc sergeant full Right, sorry, Morgan. I'm just feeling really run down and out of sorts. Wanted to make sure you could spare me.
Morgan2 Again, if you're not on the duty roster, I'm not sparing you, I already have things covered. Go relax. Take it easy.
Npc sergeant full Will do, Lieutenant. I'll probably just do a quick workout, get the blood pumping.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Seriously?
I thought you were doing a quick workout. What's with the ball and chain?
Npc sergeant full I'm getting slow, Morgan! I can't let a little thing like a seventy pound weight around one ankle keep me from nailing a four minute mile!
Morgan2 Okay, right, see, I just forget sometimes that you are an insane person. So thank you for reminding me about that.

Npc sergeant full It's not enough, Zoey! I'm pushing myself as hard as I can, but I still can't shake this feeling. I've gotta work through it!
Npc mechanic full~ipad I've been tinkerin' with an idea: directly stimulatin' muscle groups with an electrical charge to force contractions. I kinda figured it would be for torture or somethin', but you could probably use it to work out longer.
Npc sergeant full I'm in! What do you need?
Npc mechanic full~ipad I can rig somethin' up with a couple of Electro-Geared Cutters from the Machine Shop.
Finish mission

Reward: XP 2,100
Followup: Way Down in the Mine
Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Alright, I've gathered this little group to discuss the environmental damage caused by the uranium mine, and discuss possible solutions.
So far we have "dam up the water, and then when it collects I guess put all the water in lead barrels and then bury those, but try not to get the lead into the water" and "blow it up." Which, Zoey, does not even make sense.
Dr harris full@2x Are your problems always so tiresome? Why not just inject ethanol into the substrate?
Npc engineer full~ipad Because… I have no idea how that would help?
Dr harris full@2x By stimulating the activity of naturally occurring microbes, which have previously demonstrated the ability to convert Uranium from the hazardous hexavalent oxidation state to the inert tetravalent state, obviously.
It's likely the only remediation effort we can afford at this juncture. Am I seriously having to explain something so elementary to you?
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Zoey, I'm not sure if I'm just imagining it, but sometimes I feel like Dr. Harris… well… sometimes when we're talking… Her manner is kind of…
Npc mechanic full~ipad You mean how sometimes she looks at you and the thing you just said made her so mad that she's not even mad at you, she's just mad at the world? Like for lettin' you be in it?
Npc engineer full~ipad ... yes. So you've noticed that too.
Npc mechanic full~ipad Everyone notices it, Floyd.
Reward screen
Npc mechanic full~ipad She ain't a pleasant lady.

Way Down in the Mine[]

Level: 66 Prereq: Remediation Meditation
Npc engineer full~ipad Oh, so we're just kind of guessing. Mapicon Go to the Uranium Mine
Followup: Danger is Double
Start mission
Npc engineer full~ipad We've prepared the ethanol, and I've developed a method for injecting it into the ground water. Is there anything we should know about ramifications?
Dr harris full@2x None that I'm aware of. Why do you ask?
Npc engineer full~ipad Well, I'm just wondering if you're aware of any side effects from previous remediation efforts similar to this.
Dr harris full@2x There were no previous efforts of this nature. I invented the technique while you were rambling on about lead containers. I see no reason it shouldn't work, but I haven't spent a great deal of time considering it.

Npc engineer full~ipad That's wonderful Zoey! It's so rare that we have the opportunity to act in a purely benevolent manner, helping to undo some of the damage that's been done to our natural world.
Npc trooper full Sir! Spiderwasps! In the mine! They're attacking the workers!
Npc mechanic full~ipad Sorry Floyd, looks like we gotta do some damage to the natural world.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad Alright, what's done is done. Let's finish getting the ethanol injectors installed, and see if we can't minimize any further damage.
Npc mechanic full~ipad Will do, Floyd! But I feel like I should warn ya, the fight mighta caused some damage ta the local fault lines. I wouldn't be surprised if there were earthquakes or somethin'.

Followup: Infestation
Start mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad Hey Floyd, remember when I said we mighta caused a coupla earthquakes?
Npc engineer full~ipad Are we about to be crushed to death?
Npc mechanic full~ipad I mean, it's possible an' all, but it looks like a quake opened up a Spiderwasp nest ta the south, so there's a real good chance they'll run all over every village nearby… and the Outpost.
Finish mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad Well, that was a heck of a disaster. An' we still haven't figured out a way to keep the Spiderwasps from goin' wild. Sorry, Floyd.
Npc engineer full~ipad Zoey, we're not dead, we're not paralyzed by a poison, AND we managed to get the ethanol injectors installed and working.
Sure, we uncovered a massive Spiderwasp nest and riled up the hordes of giant insects within, but I'm going to go ahead and call this one a win.

Npc engineer full~ipad It's absolutely unacceptable, Morgan! I will not be a party to the wholesale slaughter of an animal, ESPECIALLY not in an already compromised ecosystem!
Morgan2 Sorry Floyd, the Spiderwasp nest is too dangerous. We can't risk it. It's a matter of public safety.
Npc engineer full~ipad As the chief civilian representative on the Outpost, public safety is under MY purview! I will block this at every step!
Morgan2 You're in charge of the sewers and sound construction and "slow children at play" sign aspects of public safety. The problems that we solve with machine guns are more my jurisdiction.
Finish mission
Morgan2 Floyd, this would be a lot smoother if you'd just make a bunch of bug poison or something. You know they're just gonna move again, anyway.
Npc engineer full~ipad We don't know that! We know they HAVE in the past. Maybe they'll die! Maybe they'll move to a worse location! Also, poison for something that big is just regular poison. Lacing their nest with it would be quite dangerous.
Morgan2 So? Isn't that why we have Perkins?
Reward screen
Npc engineer full~ipad I suppose that IS why we have Perkins.

Morgan2 So we CAN murder her if we just kill her eggs and make her show her face… maw… whatever! Just making sure it was possible! It's okay, boys, she's totally murderable!

This was probably a bad idea… But I've never let that stop me before! Let's go, men!
Finish mission
Morgan2 Hey Floyd, remember when were talking about murderability vis a vis the Spiderwasp Queen… what were you saying at the end there?
Npc engineer full~ipad While the hives are similar to bee hives in having only one active queen, they parallel wasps in that multiple fertile females will be preemptively fertilized, both for expansion and in case of emergency.
Depending on the nature of the emergency, the birth rate of males can be modified. Since the previous emergency was food based, we saw mostly drones. We can now expect a huge increase in the number of warrior Spiderwasps.

Npc engineer full~ipad Morgan. I'm dealing with it. You stay here. I'll be gone a while.
Morgan2 Wait… are you gonna take care of killing them or of NOT killing them? Because I actually DO want to kill them.
That was a ruse.
Finish mission
Dr harris full@2x Lieutenant… Morgan, is it?
Morgan2 It is. YOU KNOW IT IS. Why do you do things that hurt people?
Dr harris full@2x Your lack of memorability is not really of importance. I'm concerned about the work your friend Floyd was engaged in at my Laboratory. The combination of chemicals he collected and synthesized was… unusual. He hasn't been seen since.
Morgan2 Is he gonna make a bomb?
Dr harris full@2x I do not believe he intends to create an explosive. If he attempted it with the materials in question, I would not expect it to be successful.
Then again, maybe he is trying to make an explosive and I am underestimating his level of incompetence.
Morgan2 Probably not a big deal then, right? Tell me if you think someone is going to make a bomb.

Seriously, what do you expect? We're stationed in the middle of the damn desert with no support from a dead Empire. Oh, and the entire frontier wants to murder us.
Dr harris full@2x You destroyed my lab and led the Rebels to me so that you could give me this crude excuse for… civilization of any kind? A prison would have better facilities!
If you expect me to help your cause, I'm going to need some resources. And a lot of them.
Finish mission
Dr harris full@2x While you were out, I drew up some blueprints for my lab.
Morgan2 What the hell do you need a lab for? Floyd just uses a stall in the raptor pen.
Dr harris full@2x Well… Floyd doesn't have the qualifications that I do, so he can continue to tinker with his 'My First Beaker' kit in the raptor hay. Now do you want a real scientist working for your sorry excuse for a rag-tag band of… whatever you are, or don't you?

I mean, it was hilarious, but impractical in the field.
Dr harris full@2x It's plasma, if you're so curious. Don't ask me to explain to you how it works, you wouldn't understand.
Morgan2 Pffft, already been done. Those scientists up at Installation 17 made plasma. What else you got?
Dr harris full@2x I don't expect you to wrap your small, cheap-whiskey pickled brain around this, but what Installation 17 has done pales in comparison to my work.

Morgan2 I'm not saying I'm thrilled to go there, but still, it just doesn't seem reasonable to say the location "is secret" when you really mean "is in a really scary place".

Morgan2 So you want us to shoot at you and beat you up so that the Rebels don't?
Npc veteran full Look, you were right about a lot of things, but we can't just abandon the people here, and we can't evacuate in time. This would let us start doing things right.

Npc sergeant full Wow, you really took that whole "don't be afraid to ask for help" thing seriously. Honestly, I think this might be more in Floyd's wheelhouse.
Npc sheriffPierce full Oh, sure, I just… My grandpa, Judge Pierce, who started the tradition. It's been a big question, can we do it without him, and there's so little meat around with the Rebels hunting and taking so much of the food, and traders haven't brought spices in...
Morgan2 We're in. Let's make this happen, folks.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full OK Sheriff, you're all set. Let us know how the chili comes out.
Morgan2 What are you talking about, Ramsey? We're not done.
Npc sheriffPierce full Well, I appreciate the thought and all, but from here, it's really about the different cooks bringing their own recipes to the table. No one will tell you what they need for their recipe, or you might be able to figure out the secret.
Morgan2 That's fine. You tell those other cooks to bring their A game, because the 95th Rifles will be making some chili of our own. And we're doing in memory of Judge Pierce!

Npc engineer full~ipad Whew, it was some work getting those files back to the Outpost, but I'm ready to dive in!
Npc noob full This is going to take all night... guess we better get started.
Npc engineer full~ipad I'll need some kale juice to get me through this.
Npc noob full Kale... juice? Why not just some coffee?
Npc engineer full~ipad Perkins, I am ashamed of you. Coffee is a stimulant. Coffee is a DRUG.
Npc noob full So you're not okay with coffee, but you're okay with putting experimental drugs IN Lieutenant Morgan's coffee? Okay. That makes sense.
Npc engineer full~ipad What does coffee contain? Adenosine! What is adenosine? It's an inhibitory neurotransmitter that plays a role in energy regulation. Coffee blocks the adenosine receptors, dysregulating our natural energy cues! It's highly addictive!
Caffeine can also cause ulcers, miscarriage, and death!
Npc noob full Okay, okay! We'll make the kale juice. THEN can we get to the archives?

Npc noob full I can barely keep my eyes open, and we haven't found anything useful.
Npc engineer full~ipad Installation 17 was incredibly thorough. Before the collapse of the Empire, there would have been no chance of a leak.
Even now, I'd say it's highly unlikely any of their employees would have had the breathing room to become an informant.
Npc noob full Well, that's a disturbing revelation.
Npc engineer full~ipad I think we've come to the same conclusion, and I have to agree. It couldn't have been an employee of Installation 17. At least, one outside a leadership role.
Npc noob full So, IF the leak came from Installation 17, that leaves either Archibald himself, or Aurora. And seeing as how we work with one, and saved the other, it's an unlikely, but terrifying, possibility.

Npc adventurer full~ipad Ah, Lieutenant Morgan! It's good to see you.
Morgan2 Woah! When did you get here?
Npc adventurer full~ipad Me? A little while ago. I understand that you've been distracted.
Morgan2 Man, you ain't kiddin'. What's up? Do you need like… some ropes? For… tying things?
Npc adventurer full~ipad Nothing so specific. Perhaps some hardtack for the road?
Morgan2 I mean, that's… most of what we make at the bakery. We can probably see to that.

Npc noob full Percival! Sorry, things have been nuts around here. So, what do you say, time to check out the textbooks? If they're for kids, we might even be able to understand them!
Npc adventurer full~ipad Alas, Perkins dear lad, now is not the time. I must make my way. Other opportunities await. But chin up, I'll return, and perhaps then we can make our attempt.
Npc noob full Oh, yeah, sure. I'll just… I'll see you then.

Npc engineer full~ipad Who is it? Can't you tell me now?
Npc noob full I'm not 100% sure, and I'd rather not say anything before I am.

Npc sergeant full They grabbed him, sir! It's like they used the battle as a smokescreen to get to Perkins. They must have wanted him for some reason.

Npc sergeant full Don't worry sir. We'll find him. We'll get him back.
