Unused Models

SkeletalMeshes folder includes Testman/testman_two files that are likely unused.

e3 Content

Some files still have e3 in the name and are likely to be leftovers, but I don't have any tools that can open them.

Early Script

The following is the file con text.eng which contains unused dialogue and developer comments related to the game. This should probably be comb through to see what's cut and not. Also yours truly will try and clean it up.

AvaJohnson: "A new face.  Interesting.  Introduce yourself."
// M01AvaMet can be set during any mission -- doesn't mean the player met Ava in Seattle.
StandardPlayer: "This is a pretty unusual setup.  Afraid to come here in person?"
AvaJohnson: "I search every place that I can.  You're very close but not quite the one I'm looking for."
StandardPlayer: "The cockpit of a helicopter is a funny place to try and meet people."
AvaJohnson: "I talk to everyone that I can.  You're very close but not quite the one I'm looking for."
StandardPlayer: "Close to what?"
AvaJohnson: "You look modified."
StandardPlayer: "So?"
AvaJohnson: "I need help.  I'm a helicopter pilot.  They're holding me captive, along with my chopper, at the WTO terminal in New Seattle."
StandardPlayer: "I just came from New Seattle.  How'd you get this call past WTO security?"
StandardPlayer: "Right, I watched them lock down the helicopter.  How'd you get this call past WTO security?"
AvaJohnson: "I've tapped into the terminal's local network.  The passcode to the hangar holding my vehicle is 00485.  Get me out of here, and I'll fly you anywhere you want -- free of charge."
// GOAL: Rescue pilot Ava Johnson and her helicopter from the WTO Terminal in New Seattle.
StandardPlayer: "I've risked my neck for less.  I'll think about it."
StandardPlayer: "I could use a pilot.  I'll think about it."
AvaJohnson: "They have me in the hangar on the [east] side of the complex.  Watch out for the [bot on patrol] in the hangar."
AvaJohnson: "They haven't been able to unlock my cockpit yet.  I'm ready to fly as soon as you do two things.  First disable the ground-to-air missile system using the security terminals at the [southeast and southwest] corners of this hangar.  Then use the controls on the wall to extend the landing platform so I can take off."
// GOAL: Disable the ground-to-air missile system using the security terminals at the [southeast and southwest] corners of the hangar complex.
// GOAL: Use the controls on the wall to extend the landing platform so that Ava's chopper can take off.
AvaJohnson: "That takes care of one missile battery.  Now disable the other with the security terminal at the other corner of the building."
AvaJohnson: "Good, the terminal defenses have been disabled.  Now extend the landing platform with the controls in the hangar bay, and I will be able to honor our bargain.  I will be your pilot until I can resume my mission."
AvaJohnson: "Good, the terminal defenses have been disabled and the landing platform has already been extended.  Come to the helicopter, and I will honor our bargain.  I will be your pilot until I can resume my mission."
AvaJohnson: "Excellent.  The landing platform in position.  Now take care of those missiles so that we can take off."
AvaJohnson: "All set.  Get in."
AvaJohnson: "Where to?"
StandardPlayer: "The Mako facility north of town.  Who do you work for?  You mentioned a mission..."
AvaJohnson: "I will take you to the facility.  Realize, however, that I must minimize the danger to my helicopter.  I can't provide air cover or take unnecessary risks."
StandardPlayer: "Risks that might jeopardize your mission, I presume."
AvaJohnson: "I can't reveal anything more.  Be informed, however, that when I locate my passenger, you will have to hire another pilot."
Choice: "I'm ready.  Let's go."
Choice: "Sit tight.  I'll be right back."
// TRIGGER: fly-out cinematic.
AvaJohnson: "It would be unsafe to approach any closer.  You will have to bypass the [bot-patrols] on your own."
StandardPlayer: "Where will you pick me up?"
AvaJohnson: "I will watch from the air.  Perhaps I will be able to land on a rooftop during a break in the defenses."
StandardPlayer: "Thanks for sticking around.  What are the chances that you could take me to Cairo?"
AvaJohnson: "Cairo would be an acceptable destination.  I haven't yet searched Cairo for my passenger."
StandardPlayer: "Is that what you do?  Go from city to city looking for one person?"
AvaJohnson: "It's an unusual assignment, but I'm committed to carrying it out.  Let's go."
Choice: "All right.  I'm ready."
Choice: "Hang tight.  I'll be right back."
AvaJohnson: "Hurry."
// Trigger exit cinematic
AvaJohnson: "Let's go."
AvaJohnson: "I was unable to locate Cairo International Airport.  This small landing pad was the closest I could come to the city center."
StandardPlayer: "Why did you expect to find an international airport?"
AvaJohnson: "According to my map, there should be an airport 22 kilometers northeast of central Cairo.  Instead, that seems to be the site of a landfill."
StandardPlayer: "There hasn't been commercial air travel since the Collapse.  Twenty years ago."
AvaJohnson: "Perhaps my navigation database is out of date."
StandardPlayer: "I'm talking about the Collapse.  The biggest depression in world history.  I guess you don't follow current events."
AvaJohnson: "I collect information that will help me locate my passenger.  Of course I know about the Collapse.  I am going to begin my search now.  If I fail to find him here, I will be available to take you to another destination.  We will leave from this landing pad."
AvaJohnson: "I have work to do in Cairo."
AvaJohnson: "Perhaps I can be of assistance later."
AvaJohnson: "I will remain with my craft."
M02MeetAva: "[Leave Cairo] Meet helicopter pilot Ava Johnson at the helipad in the village outside the New Cairo arcology."
AvaJohnson: "Alex [D].  You seem to have business in many different places."
StandardPlayer: "I guess I'm not the only one.  Are you still sitting in your helicopter on the landing pad?"
AvaJohnson: "I've finished my search of Cairo.  I'm ready for the next destination."
StandardPlayer: "And you don't care where I'm headed.  You're ready to go anywhere I decide to go."
AvaJohnson: "I've decided that you might be going in the right direction."
StandardPlayer: "Toward your passenger?"
AvaJohnson: "I've said enough.  If you would like free transportation, I will be waiting at the landing pad in the medina outside the arcology."
StandardPlayer: "I guess I'm not the only one.  Are you still a prisoner of the WTO in Seattle?"
AvaJohnson: "I escaped.  You may be interested to know that I found another person who appears to be modified in the way that you were.  Leo Kowalski.  I gave him a ride to Cairo."
StandardPlayer: "So you fly modified humans around the world.  That's a pretty weird assignment.  And you're looking for one in particular...?"
AvaJohnson: "So I find that interesting.  I would like to talk sometime.  Do you need a pilot?  My helicopter is on the landing pad in the town outside the arcology."
StandardPlayer: "What's your rate?"
AvaJohnson: "No charge.  I'm waiting to pick up a passenger.  Until I locate him, however, I'm authorized to take other jobs.."
AvaJohnson: "I have failed to locate my passenger.  Where do you want to go?"
Choice: "Take me to Trier, Germany."
Choice: "Wait here.  I'll be right back."
// Trigger cinematic.
AvaJohnson: "So do you need a lift?  I was in Cairo looking for someone, but he isn't here."
StandardPlayer: "You want to fly me around... because I'm modified?"
AvaJohnson: "I learn more by traveling than sitting on a landing pad.  Where do you want to go?"
M04MeetAva: "After talking to JC, meet Ava Johnson's helicopter at the Versalife abandoned base."
AvaJohnson: "Alex Denton, welcome to your brother's sanctuary.  My new assignment is to answer your questions and provide transportation."
StandardPlayer: "It's getting to be quite a crowd down here for an impregnable fortress.  You were looking for JC Denton, too?"
AvaJohnson: "I left Hong Kong in 2052 with instructions to search for JC Denton near Groom Lake in Nevada.  I am an AI construct developed by Tracer Tong.  My instructions were not to stop looking until I was certain that Mr. Denton was safe."
StandardPlayer: "He isn't exactly safe with my former classmate Billie Adams planning to blow the place up.  She went over to the Templars."
AvaJohnson: "You will stop her.  She is in the computer room on the lowest level.  She has planted explosives that could destroy the Helios core and JC's mind with it."
StandardPlayer: "She always was a prankster."
AvaJohnson: "Take the lift down to where the computers are stored.  When you have eliminated the threat and spoken to JC, go outside to the abandoned VersaLife base.  I see that you have already turned on the pilot beacon.  I will be able to meet you there."
AvaJohnson: "Take the lift down to where the computers are stored.  When you have eliminated the threat and spoken to JC, go outside to the abandoned VersaLife base.  You will need to turn on the pilot beacon so that I can land safely and take you to your next destination."
StandardPlayer: "He's safe now.  My former classmate, Billie Adams, was going to destroy the Helios core, but I stopped her."
AvaJohnson: "JC will now speak with you.  I will be waiting offshore so that I can take you to your next destination."
AvaJohnson: "JC remains in a deep coma.  You need to transfer your biomod microkernal architecture to the JC-Helios processing core.  You will find an infusion chamber in the computer room on the lowest level.  Until you talk to JC, I will remain offshore.  Then I will take you to your next destination."
StandardPlayer: "Where will you pick me up?"
AvaJohnson: "Go outside to the abandoned VersaLife base.  You will need to turn on the pilot beacon so that I can land safely."
AvaJohnson: "Go outside to the abandoned VersaLife base.  I see that you have already turned on the pilot beacon.  I will be able to meet you there."
StandardPlayer: "I'm sure you made your usual wonderful first impression..."
BillieAdams: "Yeah.  She wasn't exactly thrilled to catch me rifling through her office..."
StandardPlayer: "You've always been good at making friends."
BillieAdams: "You should see if you have more luck...  There were an awful lot of strange files in there, something about observing an experiment... "
StandardPlayer: "Interesting...."
BillieAdams: "All this stuff about test subjects... I just can't imagine what that has to do with working as a fitness trainer..."
StandardPlayer: "Okay, you've piqued my curiosity.  I'll think about looking into it."
StandardPlayer: "Have you met anyone else here besides Nassif?"
BillieAdams: "Yeah, I've met two of the other trainees.  I wasn't impressed."
StandardPlayer: "Not exactly Chicago material, eh?"
BillieAdams: "More like Beauty and the Beast.  Doesn't seem to be much brains or real skill in this outfit."
StandardPlayer: "Did you hear about this Code Yellow? "
BillieAdams: "Now what? Can't they do anything right around here?"
StandardPlayer: " Any idea what's going on?"
BillieAdams: "First that stuff in Nassif's office and now this...  I really don't like this place."
BillieAdams: "Listen -- I rummaged around in Nassif's office before and found files on some strange experiment.  I'll bet this has something to do with that.  I keep telling you I don't like this place."
// Billie runs up right after Leila tells player to get to the lab for infusion.
BillieAdams: "We've got to get out of here... but you've got to get your biomods first."
StandardPlayer: "Don't you think I should just make a run for it?"
BillieAdams: "No.  Get the mods.  I've already got mine and, believe me, it will make all the difference.  Hit the lab and I'll see you on the outside."
// Billie leaves the complex.  Player CANNOT follow.
// trigger at apt lab exit tunnel checkpoint, after talking to WTO guards
BillieAdams: "You've gotten past the checkpoint.  Good.  Now forget everything those troopers just said.  Tarsus was just a factory turning us into covert operatives for the WTO -- I don't trust either one of them now.  If you need further proof of the program's duplicity, you should stop by Nassif's apartment.  I got the address when I broke into her office - it's near the center of town, by the Museum of Nanotechnology.  "
// to be triggered once you get to leila's apartment for the first time
BillieAdams: "Good work - you found Dr. Nassif's place.  Now see what you can learn."
// needs to be triggered when player tries to leave the apartment....
BillieAdams: "Wait - You're just going to leave without looking at the vmail?  Don't you want to know what's really going on?  If they're really innocent, Tarsus and Nassif have no reason to hide anything from us."
// when player opens mail from minister of culture
BillieAdams: "Hey - I remember seeing that guy in the news....  He's Mark Finley, the Minister of Culture for Seattle.  He got a lot of press last year when he opened that Museum of Nanotechnology.  Now why would he be talking to Nassif about a shipment...?"
BillieAdams: "This is the Minister of Culture's penthouse.  Strange....  this is quite a nice set up for a mere city bureaucrat....  Take a look around and see what you can dig up."
// trigger at WTO terminal
BillieAdams: "I told you:  We can't trust Tarsus or the WTO.  You should really come refinery and hear what the Order has to say.  They can teach you to break free of these programmed reflexes and stop kneeling before false profits.  May Her Holiness watch over you."
BillieAdams: "I can't believe that after everything you learned in meeting with the Order members that you persist in seeking out the WTO.  (sigh)  May Her Holiness watch over you."
BillieAdams: "You made it in.  Now start going through her v-mails.  There's got to be more evidence that the program is corrupt.  None of this had to do with our best interests - we were just their guinea pigs.... That's why I've joined the Order."
StandardPlayer: "How can you?  They're the ones who attacked the facility.  And they probably have something to do with the destruction in Chicago."
BillieAdams: "No Alex, they've explained it all to me. I've been talking with their High Augur, Lin May Chen. The Order had nothing to do with Chicago, and they only raided the facility here to free us from Tarsus and their bizarre experiments."
StandardPlayer: "We've been with the program since we were thirteen years old.  You're really going to leave all that work behind?"
BillieAdams: "I'm only ridding myself of dihi --  wrongful thinking.  You've got to do the same.  Don't let Tarsus's lies cloud your mind.  Go to the Order headquarters in the Refinery in Old Seattle.  They will make it all clear to you."
// should trigger just as exiting museum
BillieAdams: "Don't believe the WTO.  I've talked with Order members at their headquarters in the Refinery in Old Seattle.  They've shown me the truth -- That's why I'm joining their ranks.  Why do you resist their call?"
BillieAdams: "Don't follow the WTO's path to greed and self-destruction.  Follow the Order."
// play a slightly different version of the leila apt holo here, maybe ftf
GoalComplete: ""
M02TalkToOmar: "Talk to the Omar in their warehouse hideout [across from ____].  They claim to know where to find proof that the WTO could cure the [black-lung] epidemic if they wanted to."
StandardPlayer: "Tell me about this epidemic."
BillieAdams: "The air's full of toxic nanite debris, decades-old fallout from the Collapse, they say. They keep dragging in more villagers -- a pretty pitiful sight."
StandardPlayer: "What are we supposed to do?"
BillieAdams: "As far as I'm concerned, it's not our problem."
StandardPlayer: "High Seer Chen said you were in charge of handling the epidemic."
BillieAdams: "She told me to send you into the medina -- the village -- to talk to the Omar in their warehouse hideout [across from ____].  Supposedly they say that the WTO has technology to clean up the nanites but won't use it."
StandardPlayer: "That's quite a claim."
BillieAdams: "Well, apparently they can get you inside an arcology corporation where there's proof.  Personally, I'm not going to waste my time saving the planet until we figure out where Dr. Nassif is hiding."
Saman: "High Seer Chen is a fine seeker.  She has a strong heart, but a strong heart often runs contrary to a seeker's purpose."
StandardPlayer: "Do you think Dr. Nassif is still in Cairo?"
BillieAdams: "We have good reason to believe that ApostleCorp's headquarters are in Cairo.  This is where she would go looking for help."
BillieAdams: "Saman, everything's going according to plan.  Preliminary tests indicate that the gate should transport me to JC's hideout.  We've also isolated a keystone piece that will easily disable the gate without permanently damaging it.  I'll be making the jump myself shortly, after which a detail of guards will be dispatched with the [tech babble name of piece] to your compound."
// to black templar #1
BillieAdams: "...according to plan.  I had a bit of trouble on arrival, owing to a group of Versalife monstrosities, but it was easy enough to sneak past those gray freaks. Why Denton would want those awful little things around, I have no idea. "
M03BlackTemplar1: "Grays?  Disgusting."
BillieAdams: " In any event, we've located the facility, positioned the powered armor troopers and begun excavation."
M03BlackTemplar1: "Excellent work.  I'll relay your report to headquarters."
GoalComplete: ""
BillieAdams: "I see you finally found your way out of your cage."
StandardPlayer: "Lovely security around here, eh?  Have you managed to escape this floor?"
BillieAdams: "I've seen a little more of the facility.  Not all that impressive.  I've got the elevator code, though, if you want it:  28901."
StandardPlayer: "Yeah, thanks.  I guess I should meet our "hostess" here already."
BillieAdams: "Oh yeah, she and I have already met.  Dr. Nassif's a real pill."
BillieAdams: "I'll find a way out of this place.  Just give me time."
BillieAdams: "Guess I haven't scored any points with Dr. Nassif."
BillieAdams: "Good thing there's two of us.  We can watch each other's back."
BillieAdams: "Sometimes High Augur Chen has her head in the clouds."
BillieAdams: "You might as well do what the Order wants.  Who knows -- you might turn up a lead.  The Nassifs run the greenhouse."
BillieAdams: "Good luck."
ChadDumier: "I'm just trying to get a handle on the situation.  What do the strikers WANT?"
Saman: "Decent pay, fair treatment, a clean environment -- the usual, I guess."
ChadDumier: "Trier is your home.  Surely you must have some insight into why they would kidnap your lady, Her Holiness.  She's practically a patron saint in this district."
Saman: "Indeed, the people here are very devout.  It's true that many of the most faithful are less than pleased by the appearance of their spiritual leader partnering with the WTO."
ChadDumier: "Your followers must understand the need for dialogue."
Saman: "I have done my best to explain this summit to them.  Frankly, it seems unlikely even to me that the Church followers will ever countenance the closed, monolithic communities of the WTO, but I suppose that's a matter for the wise discretion of Her Holiness."
ChadDumier: "Yes, it is.  If she's still alive."
Saman: "Let's pray that she is."
ChadDumier: "I recognize you.  You're one of the escapees.  Good work on the illegal greenhouse in Cairo."
ChadDumier: "I recognize you.  You're one of the escapees.  I wish you hadn't ignored that illegal greenhouse in Cairo."
StandardPlayer: "I'd think an operation that small wouldn't concern the Head of the WTO."
ChadDumier: "I've been following the ApostleCorp investigation very closely.  Your loyalty in this matter is critical.  However, I'm.... Well, we have a crisis here.  I can't be distracted right now."
StandardPlayer: "Anything I can do to help?"
ChadDumier: "No.  No, this concerns Her Holiness.  She's been taken prisoner by the rioters at Panzerwerks.  A very delicate situation.  I need to handle this myself."
StandardPlayer: "I'm trained to deal with hostage situations."
ChadDumier: "You came to Trier looking for a certain ApostleCorp official.  I need you to stay focused on that objective.  Perhaps he knows why this city has erupted so suddenly."
StandardPlayer: "I'm looking for Tracer Tong, their head researcher."
ChadDumier: "Notice how we begin to unpeel the layers of history.  We're getting close to the principals -- and none too soon..  Report to me when you find Mr. Tong."
ChadDumier: "Not now."
ChadDumier: "Leave me."
ChadDumier: "Come back when you've found out more about the Trier branch of ApostleCorp."
StandardPlayer: "I talked to Tracer Tong.  He says that you and he have a common enemy -- the Templars.  He thinks they're behind the riots at Panzerwerks."
ChadDumier: "Is that so?"
StandardPlayer: "The Templars ran him out of the Black Gate ApostleCorp facility.  He believes that they've recoded the security lock on the teleporter to JC's sanctuary -- and that we'll have to find the Templar hideout in Trier in order to learn how to activate the device."
ChadDumier: "Where is he now?"
StandardPlayer: "In town.  I could take him a message if you want."
ChadDumier: "Never mind.  I think we both want the same thing, which is for you to go through the Gate and find JC.  The only difference is what we expect you to do when you get there."
StandardPlayer: "Put me on the ground at Panzerwerks.  Maybe I can figure out what's going on."
ChadDumier: "I guess I'm running out of choices.  Our negotiations have completely stalled.  Have your pilot take you there.  I'll arrange for Agent Klara Sparks to meet you.  Whether or not the Templars are behind the riots, I want to make sure that Her Holiness gets out of that factory alive."
ChadDumier: "If Her Holiness dies, I don't want to imagine what will happen to the Order Church."
ChadDumier: "Whatever its shortcomings, the Church has at least brought stability to a large part of the world."
ChadDumier: "I was the one who convinced her it was time for a summit.  Ultimately, I'm to blame."
ChadDumier: "They better not hurt her."
StandardPlayer: "You followers haven't expelled you yet?"
ChadDumier: "Word is leaking out that Her Holiness and I have been secretly working together.  I think we can spin that into "diplomatic ties.""
NicoletteDuclare: "Or "private negotiations.""
NicoletteDuclare: "How does that sound, darling?"
ChadDumier: "No need for people to have the perception that we started these organizations for some other purpose."
StandardPlayer: "Unless somebody tells them."
ChadDumier: "I could tell them myself.  They would think it was the same old story: the Illuminati secretly controlling the world.  Oooo.  Some might believe it, but everybody else would laugh in my face."
NicoletteDuclare: "People want to believe certain things about their leaders.  That's always been our key to power."
StandardPlayer: "Well, I've got business to take care of."
ChadDumier: "I hope you mean Saman's compound.  We need access to the Black Gate teleporter and JC's sanctuary."
ChadDumier: "I hope you mean the ApostleCorp facility at the Black Gate.  We need access to the teleporter and JC's sanctuary."
StandardPlayer: "Talk to you later."
StandardPlayer: "That was a pretty low trick you played on the world, taking advantage of the Collapse to seize power, distracting people with a phony conflict between business and idealism."
NicoletteDuclare: "No society is without this conflict.  Our intention is to develop both principles and then integrate them into an open, secular society."
StandardPlayer: "One puppeted by the Illuminati."
NicoletteDuclare: "Our work has always done more good than harm.  The Collapse would have been far more devastating if Chad and I hadn't served the memory of my mother and of my family's history by rebuilding the Illuminati organization, which was nearly destroyed by MJ-12."
ChadDumier: "There was a time when we were the rebels.  The older generation had failed us in so many ways.  But now we see that the flaw was in their methods, not their intentions."
StandardPlayer: "Their intention to disguise tyranny with so-called "free" institutions."
ChadDumier: "The average citizen in a society of billions is never free, whether because of tyranny or simply because of the contrast between his small size and the size of the government."
NicoletteDuclare: "We plan to give people a sense of freedom and a prosperous world.  In practical, historical terms, that's about as good as it gets."
ChadDumier: "Be there for us, Alex.  The critical time is approaching."
ChadDumier: "The old order is generally recognized as the high point of civilization.  We simply want to revive it."
ChadDumier: "Decide where you stand, Alex.  It won't be long before you have to choose."
ChadDumier: "JC Denton did what the Illuminati asked: he destroyed Bob Page, the leader of MJ-12.  Don't be tricked into believing that the Helios-JC hybrid is true to JC.  It might have its own agenda, one driven by a well-disguised machine intelligence."
ChadDumier: "I believe you have "business" to attend to."
StandardPlayer: "You played a pretty low trick on the world, taking advantage of the Collapse to seize power, distracting people with a phony conflict between business and idealism."
ChadDumier: "And that's why you killed Her Holiness, the spiritual leader of half the world?"
StandardPlayer: "She was a liar and a fake.  And so are you."
ChadDumier: "She was a human being, for God's sake."
StandardPlayer: "One life.  Insignificant, I would think, for the leader of the Illuminati."
ChadDumier: "She was a great leader and a great friend.  You completely misunderstand our work.  The Collapse would have been far more devastating if Nicolette and I hadn't served the memory of her mother and of her family's history by rebuilding the Illuminati organization, which was nearly destroyed by MJ-12."
StandardPlayer: "A conspiracy to disguise tyranny with so-called "free" institutions."
ChadDumier: "Enough.  Nothing I can say will convince you.  I only hope you will think twice next time you face a decision that could affect billions of people."
ChadDumier: "Perhaps you lost someone close to you in the Chicago disaster.  How does it feel?  You going to let it turn you into a killer?"
ChadDumier: "Do me a favor.  Try to understand what this confilct is about before you murder anybody else."
ChadDumier: "The goals of the Illuminati -- prosperity, relative freedom, social stability -- are not so baleful to humanity at large."
ChadDumier: "Alex Denton.  How does it feel to share such an infamous name?  Don't be deluded by the AI's ingenuity.  Your brother, JC, has long since been devoured by the Helios core, and if you revive Paul you will be reviving a sworn terrorist.  There is a better way.  More when you reach Cairo."
M05KillPaul: "Kill Paul Denton, whose body is in the [East Hangar] at the top of the arcology.  This will help the Illuminati keep biomodification under international regulation."
ChadDumier: "As promised, the Illuminati have prepared a more reasonable line of action for you to follow.  We want you to destroy Paul Denton and help return biomod technology to international regulation.  Please discuss the operation with the Elite Commando waiting for you in the street.  Paul's frozen body is located in the [East hangar] at the top of the arcology."
// Should be launched by scripting when the Elite Commando is killed by the player.
ChadDumier: "I'll take that as a slap in the face.  Don't be a fool, Alex.  Do you really think that the Dentons will have any use for you once their technology is imposed on humanity?  It will be a nanite plague worse than the one in Cairo, and you will be responsible."
// This should be triggered when the Elite Commando is killed by someone other than the player.
ChadDumier: "The Elite Commando has been killed, but we still have you.  Remember what I said about Paul.  He and JC want to impose biomodification worldwide -- a nanite plague worse than the one in Cairo.  Help us keep the technology under control."
// Plays when the player is nearing Paul's corpse.
ChadDumier: "Don't think of him as your brother.  He was a clone just like you, an experiment, the difference being that he has let his anger at his creators turn into megalomania.  He has made YOU into an experiment, remember, and next it will be the whole world, all of us living inside an ApostleCorp laboratory.  Say no, Alex.  For all of us."
StandardPlayer: "Chief Morgan?  You wanted to see me?"
DonnaMorgan: "I want to hear what you know about the terrorist attack that led to your escape from Tarsus Academy."
StandardPlayer: "The Order wanted to stop the experiment.  That's about all I know."
DonnaMorgan: "We were watching that facility ourselves.  Ever heard of an organization code-named ApostleCorp?"
StandardPlayer: "Sounds like a cult.  Why were you watching Tarsus?"
StandardPlayer: "I flipped through some records on my way out of the building.  Didn't learn much more than the name.  Why was the WTO watching the training facility?"
DonnaMorgan: "I'm Chief of Security for all WTO city centers.  My job is to make sure that businesses comply with the WTO Charter.  For instance, your biomods.  They diverge from the Piezochem architecture, the only system approved for sale."
StandardPlayer: "That's a security concern?"
DonnaMorgan: "Your biomod system has completely rewritten your DNA."
StandardPlayer: "I thought that's how nanite infusions worked."
DonnaMorgan: "Not to this extent.  Only one in twenty people can undergo Piezochem infusions.  The ApostleCorp product seems capable of restructuring any host to tolerate biomodification."
StandardPlayer: "Sounds like a good product.  I didn't know that competition was illegal."
DonnaMorgan: "We aren't protecting Piezochem.  We limit nanotech applications because they're destabilizing.  Without limits to cityscaping, for instance, a company like Symmetriad would cause the real estate market to implode."
StandardPlayer: "And biomodification would cause the people market to implode?"
DonnaMorgan: "Labor market, yes.  We don't want another Collapse.  What you can do for us is investigate your former employer.  We think they're using the Nanotech Museum to smuggle equipment into the arcology."
StandardPlayer: "You're sending me on a covert op... to a museum?"
DonnaMorgan: "Start with the Culture Minister's penthouse, above the train station.  He directs the museum.  We've noticed that he puts away a lot more cash than the city pays him."
StandardPlayer: "Interesting."
DonnaMorgan: "Show us what you can do, Alex.  With Tarsus gone, maybe a position with WTO Security would appeal to you."
M01InvestigateMuseum: "Investigate the a possible smuggling operation at the Nanotech Museum in New Seattle."
M01InvestigatePenthouse: "Look for access codes to the Nanotech Museum at the Culture Minister's penthouse above the train station."
// PILOT QUEST BEGIN.
DonnaMorgan: "Labor market, yes.  We don't want another Collapse.  What you can do for us is follow up on your discovery at the museum.  Check out the Mako lab north of town.  We know they've been doing illegal weapons research and that your former trainer, Dr. Nassif, has a hand in it.  You'll need to hire a pilot and leave at once."
StandardPlayer: "You don't have any extra pilots?"
DonnaMorgan: "I wish we did, but the Chicago disaster is occupying every available craft.  You shouldn't have any trouble finding a pilot at the bar in the Mercenary District."
StandardPlayer: "I'll give it a try."
StandardPlayer: "There's a harrier pilot who owes me a favor.  I'll see if he's interested."
StandardPlayer: "I think I've got a lead on a chopper.  I'll let you know if it pans out."
DonnaMorgan: "The WTO is fighting an invisible war against a hundred enemies.  Give us your loyalty, Alex.  We need it."
DonnaMorgan: "Good work at the museum.  What we need you to do now is check out the Mako lab north of town.  We know they've been doing illegal weapons research and that your former trainer, Dr. Nassif, has a hand in it.  You'll need to hire a pilot and leave at once."
DonnaMorgan: "Interesting.  Those are contemporary nanomanipulators, not much to build an exhibit around.  Check the room for evidence of where they came from or where they might be going."
// GOAL: Report to Donna Morgan at the Air Terminal for a debriefing.
// GOAL: Clear Vault goal.
DonnaMorgan: "Looks like people from Tarsus are mixed up in that transaction.  I'd like to know why they're running equipment to Mako Ballistics.  Report to the air terminal.  We have a lot to discuss."
DonnaMorgan: "This is WTO Security Chief Donna Morgan.  I thought you were told to report to the air terminal.  Very well.  Tour the museum, but do us a favor.  We think the Tarsus scientists were using the museum as cover for a smuggling operation.  Try to take a peek at the vaults on the lower level.  We might learn something about the experiments the scientists were performing on you."
DonnaMorgan: "The vault is on the lower level.  If you can find proof of a smuggling operation, we'll be a step closer to catching the scientists who were experimenting on you."
// GOAL: Look for access codes to the Nanotech Museum at the Culture Minister's penthouse above the train station.
DonnaMorgan: "If you don't have any luck, look for access codes in the Culture Minister's penthouse above the train station. He directs the museum.  We've noticed that he puts away a lot more cash than the city pays him."
// GOAL: Search the biolab for clues to Dr. Nassif's whereabouts.
DonnaMorgan: "The nanomanipulators at the museum were intended for scientists in this lab.  Search the area for evidence about Dr. Nassif's whereabouts."
LinMayChen: "Our seekers from the Tarsus raid say that scientists in this laboratory helped Dr. Nassif and her colleagues leave the city.  See if you can find a clue to where they went."
DonnaMorgan: "So ApostleCorp has some sort of home base in Cairo.  I think you found your next line of investigation.  Your pilot will be waiting for you on the roof.  Hurry.  Every minute counts."
LinMayChen: "So ApostleCorp has some sort of home base in Cairo.  I guess we know where you're going to spend your vacation.  Your pilot will be waiting for you on the roof."
// GOAL: Meet your pilot on the roof.
LinMayChen: "So ApostleCorp has some sort of home base in Cairo.  I guess we know where you're going to spend your vacation -- but first you must deal with the scientist in the weapons lab."
DonnaMorgan: "So ApostleCorp has some sort of home base in Cairo.  I think you found your next line of investigation.  But first you must steal those plans for the railgun."
// Sorry, a case of "people talking in your head."  We can look at alternatives at some point.
DonnaMorgan: "That's the head scientist.  Talk to him -- find out how to access the vault chamber.  He may be the only one who can get you inside."
BillieAdams: "Right -- the head scientist.  That's what you call a soft target.  Take him out.  The Order will be displeased if you fail to achieve this objective."
// GOAL: Enter the MAKO facility.
DonnaMorgan: "First step -- get inside the complex.  This is a research facility, so expect surveillance and automated security."
LinMayChen: "You will first gain entry to the complex.  Mako Ballistics is a very inward-looking, distrustful enterprise.  Expect surveillance and automated security."
// GOAL: Clear EnterMAKO.
// GOAL: [Order] Kill the scientist in charge of developing Mako's railgun.
// GOAL: [WTO] Upload the railgun scematic to the WTO office in Seattle.
DonnaMorgan: "So the Order hired you to kill the chief scientist on the railgun project.  A pretty way to do business.  The WTO prefers that you spare the scientist and instead upload the gun's schematics to our Seattle headquarters.  By law all innovations must be registered and patented through one of our offices."
LinMayChen: "So the WTO wants you to steal the railgun schematics.  Don't be fooled.  They'll monopolize the technology for their own security forces.  The Order asks that you kill the scientist who developed the gun.  We will send Mako a message.  Such work breeds nothing but strife and suffering."
// GOAL: Meet your pilot on the roof.
DonnaMorgan: "The intellectual property has been secured.  It will be analyzed by our experts.  Well done.  Your pilot will be waiting for you on the roof."
// GOAL: Search the biolab for clues to Dr. Nassif's whereabouts.
DonnaMorgan: "The intellectual property has been secured and will be analyzed by our experts.  Well done.  We will have another mission for you as soon as you learn where Dr. Nassif went.  Look for clues in the biolab on the second floor.  We believe that ApostleCorp has sleeper agents in that division of Mako."
DonnaMorgan: "The intellectual property has been secured and will be analyzed by our experts.  Well done.  We will have another mission for you as soon as you learn where Dr. Nassif went.  Look for clues in the biolab on the second floor.  Those nanomanipulators in the museum were headed for a scientist there -- probably an ApostleCorp sleeper agent."
M02Greenhouse: "Destroy the Nassif greenhouse on the [East] side of the village."
DonnaMorgan: "So I guess you've gone rogue on us.  It's not too late to show some loyalty to the WTO.  We want you to destroy the Nassif greenhouse on the [East] side of the village.  That's right -- your old instructor's family has been developing illicit strains of crops without any regard to WTO safety regulations.  Destroy the hydroponics -- and maybe pick up a hint regarding Dr. Nassif's whereabouts in the process."
DonnaMorgan: "Once again, good work in Seattle.  The WTO is making good use of the data.  Your next objective: destroy the Nassif greenhouse on the [East] side of the village.  That's right -- your old instructor's family has been developing illicit strains of crops without any regard to WTO safety regulations.  Destroy the hydroponics -- and maybe pick up a hint regarding Dr. Nassif's whereabouts in the process."
M02Greenhouse: "Destroy the Nassif greenhouse on the [East] side of the village."
DonnaMorgan: "So I guess you've gone rogue on us.  It's not too late to show some loyalty to the WTO.  We want you to destroy the Nassif greenhouse on the [East] side of the village just outside the arcology [Tier 1] exit.  That's right -- your old instructor's family has been developing illicit strains of crops without any regard to WTO safety regulations.  Destroy the hydroponics -- and maybe pick up a hint regarding Dr. Nassif's whereabouts in the process."

StandardPlayer: "Now that you know the WTO isn't what it seems, what are you going to do?  Leave the organization?"
DonnaMorgan: "I don't know.  I'm still reeling from the shock...   But somehow it's starting to make sense now.  "
StandardPlayer: "Can you forgive them for their lies?"
DonnaMorgan: "It does make me uneasy, finding out it's all a front... but I can also see what the Illuminati are trying to accomplish and why they must work in secret.  I'll probably continue publicly working for the WTO, but with a new awareness of it's true importance."
DonnaMorgan: "I don't know what I'll finally decide about the WTO, but it's hard to pass up a chance to play a role in such a monumental project."
DonnaMorgan: "Perhaps this is my destiny, to join the Illuminati in their endeavors."
DonnaMorgan: "It still seems surreal somehow, that both the WTO and Order were manufactured."
DonnaMorgan: "This changes everything."

StandardPlayer: "Why are you hiding out back here?  "
EevaNassif: "I'm not answering any questions until you tell me who you are."
StandardPlayer: "A concerned citizen.  I got a bad feeling once I set foot in this place.  I've been trying to find out why students have been going missing."
StandardPlayer: "Maskini Nassif asked me to look for his daughter, Eeva.  He's very worried.  Is that you?"
EevaNassif: "Okay, okay, yes, I'm Eeva.  And people should be worried.  We were poking around the Headmaster's office one day, and found this secret room.  From the looks of it, he's plotting something horrible for some of the students here."
StandardPlayer: "How can you be sure?  What did you see?"
EevaNassif: "Something to do with "purification"...some group called the "Templars"... I couldn't make sense of it, but I'm fairly certain that he didn't mean expulsion when he was talking about terminating students...  If you need to see for yourself, here's the [code, directions]."
EevaNassif: "Thanks for the tip.  It sounds like you got yourself to safety just in time."
StandardPlayer: "I know.  I stumbled over the same materials myself.  It looks like he's working for one of those Purity fanaticism groups -- the Templars.  Looks like you got yourself to safety just in time."
EevaNassif: "For the time being, at least...  I'm going to stay hidden until I'm sure it's safe out there, and just hope he doesn't find us."
StandardPlayer: "You don't need to worry about him anymore.  I've taken care of the situation."
StandardPlayer: "Looks like things are settling down around here, now that the Headmaster has been arrested.  I hope the missing kids turned up safe."
EevaNassif: "As a matter of fact, I'm Eeva Nassif, one of the students that was on the Headmaster's secret roster.  As soon as we heard that SSC had captured Archer, we knew we could come out of hiding."

Headmaster: "Welcome to Tarsus Cairo.  I am Silas Archer, the Headmaster.  Can I help you?"
StandardPlayer: "This is an impressive campus.  "
Headmaster: "Too bad the students are hopeless."
StandardPlayer: "Isn't that just a bit harsh?  "
Headmaster: "Tarsus just likes to keep their standards high..."
Headmaster: "Okay.  Well, this does seem like a great facility -- nothing like the Tarsus I went to at their age."
Headmaster: "Oh...  really...  you're a graduate?"
StandardPlayer: "I guess you could say that.  What about you, have you been with the organization long?"
Headmaster: "Too long.  Fortunately, this job is almost finished."
StandardPlayer: "So you're getting a transfer?"
Headmaster: "You could say that...."
Headmaster: "A Headmaster's work is never done."
Headmaster: "I can hardly wait...  for the school dance."
Headmaster: "These students are hopeless."
Headmaster: "At least this assignment is almost finished."
Headmaster: "Is there anything else you need?"
Choice: "I know your secret.  I'm not going to let you get away with this."
Choice: "No thanks.  I've seen all I need to see."
StandardPlayer: "I know what you're really doing here.  You're on assignment from the Templars to "purify" this school, you monster."
Headmaster: "It's too late.  Our cause is just.  There's simply nothing you can do."
StandardPlayer: "That's what you think."
Headmaster: "...and now onto the rest of the Nassif clan."
M05HidingTemplar1: "Why this family?"
Headmaster: "The Nassif girl was one of the key candidates for nanite infusion at Tarsus.  Her whole family is likely to give itself over to that pollution, so they must be exterminated."
M05HidingTemplar1: "There are no more in Cairo.  They've all been terminated."
Headmaster: "Are you certain?  A threat to Purity like this must not be tolerated.  Then we must identify new targets..."
Headmaster: "Tarsus was easy.  Now we'll take care of the rest of Cairo."
Headmaster: "We have tried peaceful means, but our message is ignored.  Now we must strive to protect human Purity, even if it means terminating those who would pollute the race."
Headmaster: "They're hardly human, after they undergo infusions anyway, so it's not murder that we commit."
Headmaster: "Someday humankind will thank us for so vigilantly defending the genome."
JCDenton: "... yes... at last..."
JCDenton: "... infusion chamber... below... nanite-capsid upgrate necessary... go..."
JCDenton: "... processing decentralized... unable... unable..."
JCDenton: "... go... damage... you are... only chance..."
JCDenton: "At last, my scientists found a solution.  The merger is complete."
StandardPlayer: "You're really JC Denton?  What happened?  How'd you end up in Antarctica?"
JCDenton: "You are the complete solution.  My brother, Paul, was to be upgraded first so that he could carry the infusions through the Gate, which I built for him alone.  I came here and built this place because I was incomplete, fragmented, vulnerable."
StandardPlayer: "What happened to Paul?"
JCDenton: "He nearly died two years ago.  My chief scientist, Tracer Tong, thought that he had perfected the biomod substrate, but there were recombinant anomalies in Paul.  He had to be cryogenically frozen to save his life.  Luckily, the tissues in you and the other subjects at last accepted complete transformation."
StandardPlayer: "Which is why we can pass through the Gate and enter this place."
JCDenton: "And much more, much more.  We are now ready to transform the human race.  It became clear to me after the defeat of MJ-12 that the old answers to tyranny are inadequate.  I needed the Helios merger in order to contemplate the problem effectively."
StandardPlayer: "And...?"
JCDenton: "Join me in the creation of the first posthuman order.  Perhaps you doubt my reasoning.  I will be happy to explain my principles."
StandardPlayer: "First tell me what you want me to do."
JCDenton: "You will need to return to Cairo to rescue my brother, Paul, who was seized by the Templars who raided our laboratory.  Then you will meet me at Liberty Island, where far below ground, in a secret laboratory that once belonged to MJ-12, there is an Aquinas node that can be used to distribute the infusion technology world-wide."
Choice: "Guess I'll find my pilot and consider your request."
Choice: "Tell me more about this "posthuman order.""
JCDenton: "Before the disruptions, Helios and I had many months of productive thought.  Up to now, all free societies have started with one premise: human nature is cruel, unjust -- a force to be controlled."
StandardPlayer: "Go on."
JCDenton: "The separation of powers -- from Aristotle to Montesquieu -- is designed purely to thwart the ambitions of individuals.  How comical, the West's pride in its vast tangle of agencies, jurisdictions, arcane procedures..."
StandardPlayer: "What's the alternative?"
JCDenton: "Address the flaws in human nature.  Make all beings truly equal in both body and mind.  Start with healthy minds -- lucid, knowledgable, emotionally sound -- and the needs of government change dramatically."
StandardPlayer: "Sounds like you want to put everyone on antidepressants.  Is that freedom?"
JCDenton: "Is it freedom when one child is born to poverty, a chance combination of organic materials, while the wealthy child is shaped every day of his life, enhanced genetically, trained, educated, often augmented nanotechnologically?"
StandardPlayer: "Why not get rid of the technologies that divide people?"
JCDenton: "Then you go down the path of intolerance, as Billie did.  Is human nature perfect?  My answer to that is no.  Therefore, improvements are to be welcomed, not annihilated in Templar pogroms.  As enhanced beings, we can establish a pure democracy that runs on daily input from the electorate."
Choice: "Guess I'll find my pilot and consider your request."
Choice: "What would this "pure democracy" look like?"
JCDenton: "The Helios AI has the processing power to handle all governmental functions worldwide, legislative, executive, and judicial.  Once every mind has been enhanced and can merge with the AI, attitudes toward major legislation can be processed on a daily or even more frequent basis."
StandardPlayer: "You want everyone to be like the Omar and meld themselves together into one huge AI construct?"
JCDenton: "Access to Helios would be provided with special terminals, which would function as very advanced voting booths in every home.  Otherwise, life would go on as usual."
StandardPlayer: "Sounds like enlightened despotism to me."
JCDenton: "All governments have power.  The benefit of giving this power to a synthetic intellect is that human affairs would no longer need to be ruled by generalities.  Helios will have a deep understanding of every person's life and opinions."
StandardPlayer: "What if I don't want someone peeking into my mind?"
JCDenton: "Upon consideration, you will see that this arrangement is for the best.  "General ideas are no proof of the strength, but rather of the insufficiency of the human intellect."  The words of Alexis de Toqueville, an observer of the birth of modern democracy.  Though general ideas allow human minds to make judgments quickly, they are necessarily incomplete."
StandardPlayer: "You didn't answer my question."
JCDenton: "But I did.  De Tocqueville noted that an all-knowing mind -- the mind of God, as he conceived it -- would have no need for general ideas.  It would understand every individual in detail and at a glance.  Incomplete applications of law or justice would be impossible for such a mind."
Choice: "Guess I'll find my pilot and consider your request."
Choice: "So you see yourself as a god?"
JCDenton: "I want human affairs to be driven by wisdom.  Finding the correct recipe for wisdom has been my project these long years under the ice."
StandardPlayer: "You seem to think you've succeeded."
JCDenton: "Wisdom must first be human.  You must start with what a human sees and feels.  But wisdom must also be knowledgeable, logical, and fair to billions of other beings."
StandardPlayer: "How much of you is a machine?"
JCDenton: "I am one consciousness.  No distinction is possible."
StandardPlayer: "You expect ten billion people to submit to the rule of a software construct?  What if some of them resist?"
JCDenton: "The people will recognize true equality.  Help me, Alex.  You have come this far toward restoring ApostleCorp.  Make use of the helicopter that followed you here.  Go to Cairo and rescue my brother."
StandardPlayer: "Where do I meet the helicopter?"
JCDenton: "Tracer Tong sent a helicopter to pick me up from Area 51 after my infiltration of the MJ-12 command center.  Ava Johnson was the pilot, an AI construct.  She followed you here, and I'm putting her at your disposal.  Go back to the surface and activate the pilot beacon at the abandoned VersaLife base so that she will know where to land."
StandardPlayer: "Already done.  She should be waiting for me."

KlaraSparks: "Actually, Leo and I requested to be sent here, because this is where you finish training and get briefed on your first assignment.  Isn't it exciting?  I wonder what company I'll be working for."
StandardPlayer: "So you've been here two weeks.  Any advice?"
KlaraSparks: "Just do your best, and I'm sure you'll get a good rating.  We have drills in the morning, exercise and self-study in the afternoons.  Oh!  And you'll be getting a suite of biomods -- they have an infusion chamber upstairs."
StandardPlayer: "Good.  I think that after two years I've mastered the flashlight biomod.  What's it like living here?"
StandardPlayer: "Good.  I think that after two years I've mastered the flashlight biomod.  What's it like living here?  I walked by the front door and was told I couldn't leave without Dr. Nassif's permission."
KlaraSparks: "I like it.  In the evening we're usually free to move about the city.  This building is at the edge of New Seattle.  You'll be amazed at what a nice enclave the WTO has built."
StandardPlayer: "Yeah?"
KlaraSparks: "Actually, I feel a little guilty when I think about all the people still living in post-Collapse shanties.  My family's from Old Seattle."
StandardPlayer: "Billie and I are from Old Chicago.  We had sector passes to go to the Tarsus school in the WTO enclave.  I guess all of that's gone now.  Billy and I -- we always planned to send money home once we got assigned."
KlaraSparks: "At least one trainee besides me reported to the authorities.  Have you seen Leo?"
StandardPlayer: "No, but I've heard from Billie.  She seems to be mixed up with the Order Church."
StandardPlayer: "Yeah, he's laying low like Dr. Nassif requested.  Billie seems to be mixed up with the Order Church."
KlaraSparks: "They can do what they want, I guess.  I can't believe that Tarsus is a front -- after all those years of training."
StandardPlayer: "What's going on back there?"
KlaraSparks: "A suspicious helicopter was circling the arcology.  Fortunately, both the pilot and the aircraft are now in WTO custody."
StandardPlayer: "Order reconnaissance?"
KlaraSparks: "The pilot will be interrogated.  I shouldn't tell you more than that."
StandardPlayer: "So you're on the WTO payroll now, huh?"

StandardPlayer: "We've been moved to Seattle?"
LeilaNassif: "Alex, I'm afraid something happened in Chicago -- a terrorist attack.  We evacuated you and Billie just in time."
StandardPlayer: "No one told me anything about an attack."
LeilaNassif: "I wanted to brief you myself.  I'm sorry, Alex.  The damage to the city is extensive."
StandardPlayer: "How bad is it?  I have friends in Chicago."
LeilaNassif: "You don't want the full story in one dose -- trust me.  Step over to the terminal on your desk and create a profile for our records.  Then I'll unlock your door and tell you what I can about the disaster."
M01CreateProfile: "Create trainee profile on the apartment's computer."
LeilaNassif: "Good.  Now come back to the holoterminal, and we'll get started."
LeilaNassif: "It's time for you to meet the other trainees.  Billie Adams you know from Chicago.  The other two are local: Klara Sparks and Leo Kowalski."
StandardPlayer: "You said you'd tell me more about the attack on Chicago."
LeilaNassif: "In the hall you'll find a public terminal.  Honestly, I don't see how to break the news other than to let you see it for yourself."
StandardPlayer: "Why aren't Billie and I there to help?  We didn't train to watch emergencies on the news."
LeilaNassif: "You trained to provide covert security for your sponsoring corporation.  At this time, that corporation feels you are more useful here."
StandardPlayer: "More safe, maybe.  I bet they just don't want to risk thier security people for non-employees."
LeilaNassif: "You aren't yet part of anybody's security force, Alex.  Remember that.  As for Chicago, if you'd been there you and Billie would be chemical dust right now just like the Tarsus Academy and -- for that matter -- the Chicago branch of your sponsor."
StandardPlayer: "That bad?  You're kidding.  Were we the targets?"
LeilaNassif: "As you see, there's more to this attack than anyone understands at this point.  Stop second-guessing your orders and go meet Billie in Apartment 4.  She has the code to the elevator that will bring you down to the training area to meet the others."
M01MeetBillie: "Meet Chicago classmate Billie Adams in Apartment 4."
M01WatchBulletin: "Learn about the Chicago disaster at the public terminal in the corridor."
LeilaNassif: "There will be plenty of time to explore the city during recreational hours.  For now, please meet Billie in Apartment 4.  The elevator will not function without my approval."
LeilaNassif: "There will be plenty of time to explore the city during recreational hours.  For now, please join the others in the training area.  The elevator will not function without my approval."
LeilaNassif: "There will be plenty of time to explore the city during recreational hours.  Note that the elevator will not function without my approval."
LeilaNassif: "I'll give you the code after you install your biomods.  Double back immediately.  The infusion machine is in the upper laboratory overlooking the pool."
LeilaNassif: "Take the elevator to the ground level.  We've released the security lock -- you should have no difficulty."
// The "entered elevator" flag is temporary for a demo.
StandardPlayer: "Alex D., reporting for duty, ma'am."
LeilaNassif: "This isn't an army barracks, Alex."
StandardPlayer: "Ma'am, no ma'am."
LeilaNassif: "Do you have a problem with the way you're being treated?"
StandardPlayer: "Just trying to adapt."
LeilaNassif: "This lockdown situation won't be permanent.  You'll be free to come and go -- just as you were in Chicago.  This is your home now.  Try to adapt to that."

M01CampusAcorpScientist: "Doctor... Doctor!  We have a Code Yellow."
LeilaNassif: "Uh... Hello, Stan.  Are you sure?"
M01CampusAcorpScientist: "One of the guards turned up dead."
LeilaNassif: "I'll be right there."
LeilaNassif: "You'd better introduce yourself to the others.  Klara's in the cafeteria, and Leo's running laps on the track."
StandardPlayer: "What's going on?"
LeilaNassif: "Nothing our Standard Security people can't handle.  Please carry on."
// Trigger Leila to exit her office.
// GOAL: Meet Leo Kowalski.
// GOAL: Meet Klara Sparks.
LeilaNassif: "This is no drill.  The facility is under attack.  Alex: please go to your equipment locker and arm yourself immediately.  More details when they become available."
// GOAL: Get equipment from locker.
LeilaNassif: "This is no drill.  The facility is under attack.  Alex: you found your equipment.  Good.  Stay with the others until further notice."
LeilaNassif: "The terrorists seem to belong to the Order -- religious fanatics.  Their exact objective is unclear.  Billie, Leo, Klara: evacuate the training area at once.  Alex: you haven't had your biomod upgrade.  There's still time.  Come to the upper laboratory overlooking the pool."
// GOAL: Exit the building.
LeilaNassif: "You've found the lower laboratory.  Yes -- our researchers have been observing your training and living quarters.  Don't be alarmed.  Such precautions are standard procedure before giving trainees their corporate assignments.  Go to the upper level to install your biomods."
LeilaNassif: "Trust me -- Tarsus has a strict policy against voyeuristic behavior by our researchers.  Your living quarters were observed only to insure that our graduates show no behavioral abnormalities after the biomod infusion procedure."
LeilaNassif: "Good.  You found the biomod facility.  We don't have much time."
StandardPlayer: "I don't know if I like the idea of being a laboratory specimen."
LeilaNassif: "The Tarsus program may be unconventional, but trust me -- we take care of our trainees."
// TBD: ensure an Order DL or, better, a PA announcement.
StandardPlayer: "The voice on the intercom called this a rescue attempt."
LeilaNassif: "The Order is an intolerant cult.  They want nothing but the total destruction of multinationals and their respective security forces."
StandardPlayer: "Which means me."
LeilaNassif: "Exactly."
StandardPlayer: "Why should I believe someone who spies on me in my own apartment?  I'd like to hear what the Order has to say."
LeilaNassif: "They'll want to use you to get at us.  Avoid all contact with the Order.  With everyone, for that matter.  You and the others will be on your own in Seattle.  Just keep your heads down and I will contact you when Tarsus can arrange an extraction."
StandardPlayer: "I'd like to know what's really going on."
StandardPlayer: "I came across a reference to an... ApostleCorp.  Do they own Tarsus or something?"
LeilaNassif: "We keep our operations a secret for a reason, Alex.  Don't expect a full debriefing while you're still in danger of being captured by terrorists.  Now step over to the infusion chamber.  Use the interface to select three biomod functions."
StandardPlayer: "Yes, ma'am."
LeilaNassif: "The system will inject seed populations of nanites into subregions of your body.  To increase your running speed, upgrade your legs.  To increase your reflexes, upgrade your cranium slot.  Etc.  Descriptions of the different biomod programs are provided by the device."
// GOAL: Install three biomods with the infusion device in the upper laboratory.


// GOAL: Exit the apartment-lab facility.
LeilaNassif: "Good work.  Now get down to the street. Your orders are to slip into the city and keep a low profile until contacted by me directly.  The code to the elevator is 12546."
LeilaNassif: "Good work.  Don't hesitate to use that piezoelectric speed boost on your way down to the street. Your orders are to slip into the city and keep a low profile until contacted by me directly.  The code to the elevator is 12546."
LeilaNassif: "Good work.  Don't hesitate to use that walk-silent biomod to keep a low profile on your way down to the street.  Your orders are to slip into the city and keep a low profile until contacted by me directly.  The code to the elevator is 12546."
LeilaNassif: "Good work.  Don't hesitate to cloak on your way down to the street. Your orders are to slip into the city and keep a low profile until contacted by me directly.  The code to the elevator is 12546."
LeilaNassif: "Good work.  Don't hesitate to use those tricked-out eyes to look for danger on your way down to the street. Your orders are to slip into the city and keep a low profile until contacted by me directly.  The code to the elevator is 12546."
LeilaNassif: "Good work.  Don't hesitate to spawn a spy drone to help find a safe route down to the street. Your orders are to slip into the city and keep a low profile until contacted by me directly.  The code to the elevator is 12546."
LeilaNassif: "Just confirming my departure.  No contact from Cairo yet.  I don't know what we'll do if headquarters gets hit as well.  More after I arrive in Egypt."
// This conversation needs to go on a diet.
LeilaNassif: "You realize that the Knights Templar are right on your butt."
StandardPlayer: "You mean the guys in the lobby?  They're history."
StandardPlayer: "You mean the guys in the lobby?  I can handle them."
LeilaNassif: "The guys in the lobby and all over this arcology.  They're tearing apart our organization piece by piece.  The last thing we need is one of our own fishing for classified information."
StandardPlayer: "You could've told me and the other trainees about the experiments."
LeilaNassif: "Our security was too lax as it was.  I think that should be evident."
StandardPlayer: "It's a little late to be splitting hairs about security."
LeilaNassif: "You want the scoop?  Fine.  Here it is.  You've been an experiment since the day you were born, since about five years before ApostleCorp even existed.  You were the third Denton prototype, some sort of super-being designed by the MJ-12 conspirators."
StandardPlayer: "That's a good start.  MJ-12, huh?  The offshoot of the Illuminati?  Started the Gray Death plague of the 2050s...?  I was supposed to be part of a plot to take over the world?"
LeilaNassif: "Until your older brother, JC, broke up their network and in the process caused the world economic collapse.  When you were five, ApostleCorp moved you and your parents to Chicago."
StandardPlayer: "From Area-51.  My parents always said we were from Palm Springs."
LeilaNassif: "They were extremely loyal to our cause after MJ-12 was exposed.  I regret that we weren't able to save them from the Chicago attack."
StandardPlayer: "What about the others?"
LeilaNassif: " All four of you have had your physiologies normalized to JC Denton's.  Yours was already very close.  In founding ApostleCorp, JC wanted to make his abilities available to all humans -- not just an elite ruling class. "
StandardPlayer: "So is JC Denton here?  Is that who you're protecting?"
// CUTAWAY: paladins pushing Paul on a gurney.
LeilaNassif: "The directors of this facility are either dead or captured.  JC was never one of them.  Beyond that, I'm as ignorant as you.  I saw the paladins remove a cryogenically frozen body from [the vault].  Maybe that was the facility director, maybe a botched experiment.  Who knows.  There wasn't much communication between the different cells."
StandardPlayer: "So you're all that's left?"
LeilaNassif: "In Cairo, maybe so.  I've been trying to reach Trier, Germany, our last hidden base, but all lines are down.  I snooped around and found out that the leader of that cell is a man named Tracer Tong.  He's the only one who can contact JC."
StandardPlayer: "I guess JC wants to be the patron saint of the biomodified.  The Templars must want him dead.  Why tell me all this?"
LeilaNassif: "Maybe if you know the truth you'll protect JC when you find him, because the goons you're working for would've found out about Trier one way or another -- and then sent their hired gun in to investigate.  Just try to think for yourself and make the right choice when you get the chance."
LeilaNassif: "I'm not coming out, Alex, and you're not getting in.  I said to keep a low profile, and now you're endangering the Program that made you possible.  Somebody's twisted you around their little finger."
LeilaNassif: "Very well.  You want some answers?  Come over to the [holocomm unit]  I'll give you some gossip to take back to the other test subjects."
StandardPlayer: "So after the Collapse JC went underground to....  what?  Start his own biomod firm?  From what I know, he doesn't seem like the corporate type."
LeilaNassif: "I've never met the Dentons.  They stay behind the scenes.  But the story I've always heard is that they realized after the Collapse that no attempt to restore the United Nations or any form of world government was going to succeed right away.  They decided instead to prepare the conditions for a new type of government"
StandardPlayer: "With biomods?"
LeilaNassif: "A way to level the playing field between rich and poor.  A society is no better than the individuals it contains.  If all of them can be healthy, intellectually gifted, and self-reliant, the prospects for liberty look much better than they did early in the century."
StandardPlayer: "And you buy it?  You think Paul and JC are sincere?"
LeilaNassif: "That's the story we're all told when we join -- the story you would've been told, eventually, if your training hadn't been interrupted.  In any case, it sounds a lot better than the constant bickering and war-mongering between the Order, the WTO, the Templars... all the quasi-Feudal powers that sprang up after the Collapse."
LeilaNassif: "Having grown up poor, I appreciated the Tarsus school, and when ApostleCorp came to me and said they wanted to get rid of the enclave-mentality that keeps the rich inside protected arcologies and the poor -- like my relatives in the medina -- scrambling in the dirt -- I couldn't refuse."
// Add "completed" barks if we let the player "save" her.
LeilaNassif: "See if you can do [X], then maybe I can escape before anyone else breaches the facility."
LeilaNassif: "I helped complete the immune-response code.  Your batch of trainees may very well be the answer -- the seed of 22nd-century humanity."
LeilaNassif: "Who knows how far a new biomod architecture could go?  What if mental illness and manic emotional states could be eliminated?  Violent crime might disappear on its own accord.  The dangers of a vast police apparatus might become a thing of the past."
LeilaNassif: "Playing the organizations against each other, and maybe you can follow an agenda of your own."
LeilaNassif: "I trust you to do what's best for everyone."
LeilaNassif: "I need you to create a trainee profile for our records."
LeilaNassif: "Find your friend Billie and meet me in the training area."
// GOAL: clear MeetLeo.
LeoKowalski: "So they let the Chicago transfers out of their cages.  You're looking at Leo Kowalski.  You train here now, so I guess you can call me Leo."
StandardPlayer: "Alex.  I just talked to Dr. Nassif.  Know anything about a Code Yellow emergency?  Apparently a security guard has been murdered."
LeoKowalski: "Would I be running laps if there was an emergency?  Me?  You never heard the name Leo Kowalski in Chicago?"
StandardPlayer: "Uh, sorry."
LeoKowalski: "I'm the one with a perfect special-ops rating.  They didn't tell you this?  Why would they keep it a secret?"
StandardPlayer: "Ever heard the name Alex D?  They told me the same thing."
LeoKowalski: "What?!  Really?"
StandardPlayer: "Just kidding.  I think Tarsus has their reasons for keeping the schools separated."
LeoKowalski: "Well.  They rewrote the exercises because of my performance.  If there was trouble, they'd notify me immediately."
StandardPlayer: "I guess you're in this for the adventure."
LeoKowalski: "Why'd you sign up?  Money?"
StandardPlayer: "My foster parents got me enrolled at a Tarsus middle school.  I never thought about it much."
LeoKowalski: "An orphan.  You were pretty pampered for an orphan.  Why not be a banker or something?"
StandardPlayer: "I grew up in Old Chicago, not some cozy arcology.  My parents made it clear I was gonna have to make it on my own.  When I got picked for the covert ops program, I figured what the hell."
LeoKowalski: ""What the hell?"  What kind of assignment do you expect with that attitude?"
StandardPlayer: "A risky one.  With a big salary."
StandardPlayer: "Leo..."
LeoKowalski: "Chicago.  You made it out."
StandardPlayer: "What are you doing down here?  Sign up with the Order Church like Billie?"
LeoKowalski: "Huh.  Terrorists."
StandardPlayer: "The WTO?"
StandardPlayer: "The WTO?  Chief Morgan seems pretty intent on recruiting us."
LeoKowalski: "Leeches.  They want a monopoly on everything -- including security agents."
StandardPlayer: "Then what are you going to do?"
LeoKowalski: "You need work, you go to the Pit.  This is what I did.  I found work.  Mercenary.  Black market.  In a few hours, they send me to Egypt."
StandardPlayer: "I thought you wanted to be a corporate heavy."
LeoKowalski: "I don't like being a lab monkey.  I've been thinking about this.  I don't want to be in anybody's army.  I don't want to be a piece of meat they fight over.  Corporate heavy, maybe.  But right now I work for myself."
LeoKowalski: "Let me finish my run."
LeoKowalski: "Is that what you plan to tell corporate headhunters?  "What the hell?""
LeoKowalski: "Tough break about Chicago.  I guess you knew people there."
// additional barks for A.
LeoKowalski: "I'm running."
LeoKowalski: "Hey -- I'm running."
LeoKowalski: "You deaf?"
LeoKowalski: "Probably just a fire drill."
LeoKowalski: "Like we don't have the training to handle a fire if we had to."
LeoKowalski: "The building's one hundred percent ferroconcrete.  Not exactly flammable."
LeoKowalski: "Stay sharp, Chicago."
LeoKowalski: "I'm ready."
// (disgusted)
LeoKowalski: "Terrorists..."
StandardPlayer: "Why Egypt?"
LeoKowalski: "I'm working for the Omar -- you know, the cyborgs.  They're a global operation these days."
StandardPlayer: "What are they paying you?"
LeoKowalski: "I'm protection to help them open shop in a scabland medina near New Cairo.  Five thousand per week -- plus mods."
StandardPlayer: "Not bad.  What kind of mods?"
LeoKowalski: "Anything I want.  Anything.  The best mods are black-market.  Reconstructive glands.  Bot domination.  This will add value when I go back to the corporate market."
StandardPlayer: "Well, good look out there."
LeoKowalski: "Also, my Omar contact says they have stuff that goes way beyond biomods.  Luck will not be a factor for me."
StandardPlayer: "I've learned some things about the experiments they were doing on us."
LeoKowalski: "Yeah?"
StandardPlayer: "Tarsus is a front for something called ApostleCorp.  They gave us an experimental biomod architecture -- one that can supposedly reconfigure anybody's DNA to accept nanite infusions."
LeoKowalski: "As long as it works."
StandardPlayer: "That's what the Order and WTO are fighting over.  Universal biomodification."
LeoKowalski: "Universal.  Are you sure?  That would screw up the market pretty bad.  Why would Tarsus want to undercut their own product?"
StandardPlayer: "I told you -- Tarsus is a front.  No one's quite sure what ApostleCorp is after."
LeoKowalski: "Funny way to end up a free agent."
LeoKowalski: "I'm not anybody's pet project."
LeoKowalski: "I wonder if they even cared how we did at the training.  Or was it purely a medical test?"
LeoKowalski: "Chicago.  Someone put you on my tail?  You're a long way from home."
StandardPlayer: "I'm on Dr. Nassif's tail.  The program we came out of -- ApostleCorp -- it's based here in Cairo."
LeoKowalski: "ApostleCorp?"
StandardPlayer: "The scientists who ran our training.  Tarsus was a front."
LeoKowalski: "I'm standing here thinking about this.  I'm standing here, and this is some coincidence.  Either there's a contract on my head --"
StandardPlayer: "Or maybe the Omar have an interest in the program that created us, too.  What do they have you doing out here?"
LeoKowalski: "Me?  (grunt)  Protection."
LeoKowalski: "I told you before.  Protection."
StandardPlayer: "Protection from what?"
LeoKowalski: "Anybody.  Most people don't like Omar.  Most people think they're freaks.  Right now, supposedly these Knights Templar fanatics are planning a raid.  I'm waiting for them."
StandardPlayer: "All by yourself?"
LeoKowalski: "That's my assignment, but these cyborgs can fight when they have to.  I just wish we had a better tip -- like, when the raid's gonna happen.  Then maybe I could get some sleep."
StandardPlayer: "Who tipped you off to begin with?"
LeoKowalski: "Someone in the village, but the Templar command is in the arcology.  They have a recruiting kiosk there.  We can't move people into New Cairo too easily."
StandardPlayer: "Maybe I'll do some sightseeing in New Cairo.  I'll let you know if I come across anything."
StandardPlayer: "I have an arcology pass.  I'll let you know if I hear anything."
LeoKowalski: "Yeah?  Well, if you check out that kiosk, keep a low profile.  Use a laser mic or sneak up on the place.  They aren't gonna just blurt out their plans on a crowded street."
TemplarEavesdrop: "Eavesdrop on the Templar recruiting kiosk in New Cairo.  Report any details of a raid against the Omar to Leo in the medina."
StandardPlayer: "I eavesdropped on the Templar recruiting station in the arcology."
LeoKowalski: "Huh.  My lucky day.  I see that it pays to have old friends from Tarsus.  They must have trained you well in Chicago."
Choice: "The raid is going to happen any minute."
Choice: "Don't sweat it.  They called the raid off."
LeoKowalski: "You know this for certain?  I should stay in position -- how long?"
StandardPlayer: "Hard to say.  Maybe an hour."
LeoKowalski: "I will be ready.  Thank you.  [Give player black-market biomod or something?]"
LeoKowalski: "You know this for certain?  I can take a break and don't have to worry?"
StandardPlayer: "Just relax.  You look like you could use some down-time."
LeoKowalski: "(sigh)  Thank God.  I'm about to lose my edge if I stand here any longer."
StandardPlayer: "You might be interested in something I overheard at the Templar recruiting station in the arcology."
LeoKowalski: "One thing I am is dependable."
LeoKowalski: "No sign of trouble so far."
LeoKowalski: "A Templar would just as soon lynch a merc like you or me, cuz of our biomods.  If there's a fight, I plan to fight."
LeoKowalski: "I wasn't sure about you at first, but you turned out to be a good man."
LeoKowalski: "At last.  Time I can use to think about my own problems."
LeoKowalski: "Crazy what you end up doing sometimes, isn't it?"
LeoKowalski: "They won't catch me sleeping."
LeoKowalski: "If I go down fighting bigots, I guess that's not so bad."
LeoKowalski: "This'll be my first real engagement.  Hard to believe."
LeoKowalski: "The Omar are safe.  Thanks for the tip."
LeoKowalski: "This gig is working out."
LeoKowalski: "One thing I can't stand is one human being who hates another human being.  Know what I mean?"

StandardPlayer: "Who are you?"
LinMayChen: "We can't protect you in New Seattle.  You'll have to come to our church, then we'll talk more."
StandardPlayer: "Protect me from who?"
LinMayChen: "Everyone.  Tell no one who you are or where you came from.  Avoid all contact with Dr. Nassif -- she will try to recapture you."
StandardPlayer: "No one forced me into the covert ops program."
LinMayChen: "That's because you never tried to leave.  Believe me: you would have been killed the second you let down those scientists -- the ones peeping into your bedroom back there."
StandardPlayer: "We're just a few trainees.  Why make such an effort to rescue us?"
LinMayChen: "The Order has much to tell you about your past -- and your future.  You'll find us in the refinery in the Mercenary District of Old Seattle."
StandardPlayer: "What about some specifics?  Why should I trust the Order Church?"
StandardPlayer: "You know about ApostleCorp?  I found evidence that an organization with that name is funding this division of Tarsus Academy."
LinMayChen: "No time now for talk.  Find us at the refinery.  May Order prevail."
GoalComplete: ""
StandardPlayer: "I'm here.  You said you had more to say about the raid on Tarsus."
LinMayChen: "Your rescue, yes.  You and the other trainees were being used as testbeds for recombinant tissue experiments.  The Order doesn't tolerate deception of that magnitude.  It's a sin."
StandardPlayer: "Biomods are part of the training.  We knew what they'd do to our tissues."
LinMayChen: "Your biomod architecture is no Piezochem knockoff.  It's something quite new."
StandardPlayer: "They said I'd be compatible with Piezochem infusions."
LinMayChen: "Compatible, perhaps.  Equivalent, no.  The trainees' DNA has been completely rewritten.  We're pretty certain that the one called Leo would have been completely ineligible for biomodification without extensive homologous replacement."
StandardPlayer: "And you want the design.  To sell to who?  Piezochem?"
LinMayChen: "The Order does not wish to profit by commodifying the human organism.  We want to know what this technology is for.  The uses exceed what you might expect."
StandardPlayer: "Sounds like it would expand the biomod market.  A pretty typical secret for a corporation."
LinMayChen: "It could transform entire populations.  Standardize the human organism.  Make all ability and talent into software modules.  Radically disrupt the social order."
StandardPlayer: "You think there's a political agenda -- behind my biomods?"
LinMayChen: "An underground network of scientists called ApostleCorp.  We want you to help us find them."
StandardPlayer: "How do I do that?"
LinMayChen: "Some of our seekers didn't make it back from the raid.  They're being held hostage at the top of the Space Needle."
StandardPlayer: "A rescue mission."
LinMayChen: "Yes.  They were intercepted by Templar bigots.  A random attack?  Maybe.  But I'm not so sure.  Find our people and report back to me.  We think they know where the escaping scientists were going."
// GOAL: rescue the Order operatives being held hostage at the Space Needle.  Learn what they found out about ApostleCorp.
StandardPlayer: "So your agents in the Space Needle found a connection to a Mako facility north of town?"
LinMayChen: "You have served the Order well, Alex.  Yes, we need you to infiltrate that facility and untangle its operations for us."
StandardPlayer: "According to your operatives, the ApostleCorp people seem to be sleeper agents."
LinMayChen: "True.  What immediately concerns the Order is that the Templars have commissioned a new grade of firearm -- a rail gun.  We very much oppose the creation of any new weapons.  Your objective will be to locate the scientist in charge and kill him."
StandardPlayer: "Won't Mako just hand the project to another scientist?"
LinMayChen: "An assassination will send a message and cost the firm money.  To make a weapon is an act of war.  By the will of Her Holiness, they will learn this principle.  Meanwhile, you will find out whether any Tarsus scientists have taken cover there."
StandardPlayer: "I'd certainly like to ask Dr. Nassif a question or two."
LinMayChen: "We understand each other.  Just hire a pilot in the Mercenary District and get moving as soon as possible."
// GOAL: Infiltrate the Mako Ballistics corporate campus and assassinate the head of the railgun program.
// GOAL: Hire a pilot at the Mercenary district bar to take you to the Mako facility.
StandardPlayer: "You can't get me a ride?"
LinMayChen: "The Order is spiritually rich, but that doesn't buy many private jets.  Go to the bar.  You should have no trouble finding a pilot there.   You must reach that facility before Dr. Nassif can escape again."
StandardPlayer: "I know a chopper pilot that might be available."
// GOAL: Meet Ava Johnson at the WTO Terminal and go to the Mako facility.

StandardPlayer: "Your seekers are fine.  They should be on their way back to the church."
LinMayChen: "Her Holiness will be pleased.  We're fighting an invisible war, Alex.  The Order has a great need for allies like you."

// GOAL: Meet your pilot on the roof.
LinMayChen: "Her Holiness will be pleased.  Praise Order, praise peace, praise your loyalty.  Now slip away.  Your pilot will be waiting on the roof."
// GOAL: Search the biolab for clues to Dr. Nassif's whereabouts.
LinMayChen: "Her Holiness will be pleased.  Praise Order, praise peace, praise your loyalty.  Now, back onto the trail of Dr. Nassif.  Our seekers traced her contacts to the biolab on the [second floor].  Look for evidence there.  When you determine where Nassif went, your pilot will meet you on the roof."

LinMayChen: "Loyal seeker, you'll notice that the village has been decimated by a disease called [black lung] thanks to WTO indifference to nanite pollution outside the arcology.  Dr. Nassif comes from a poor family in the area.  If you and Billie help the locals, maybe they will put you on her trail.  Billie will coordinate your efforts from the mosque that lies between the arcology and the village.  Report to her at once."
// GOAL: report to Billie in the mosque that separates New Cairo from the village.
LinMayChen: "Your first objective is to go to the village outside the arcology walls, where Leila's family lives.  You will have to make your way to the ground level.  Billie is waiting for you in the mosque that separates the New Cairo arcology from the village."
LinMayChen: "The mosque is [right outside].  You'll notice that the village has been decimated by a disease called [black lung] thanks to WTO indifference to nanite pollution outside the arcology.

LinMayChen: "What's happening?  I've heard strange stories about Her Holiness."
StandardPlayer: "Like what?"
LinMayChen: "Just rumors.  But is it true?  Did she make a secret alliance with the WTO?"
Choice: "Chad and Nicolette are leaders of a secret society called the Illuminati.  The WTO and Order are merely puppet organizations."
Choice: "Someone's reading too much into [Chairman] Dumier's concern for your leader.  I think he was simply being a good statesman by authorizing a rescue attempt."
LinMayChen: "I don't understand."
StandardPlayer: "Nicolette DuClare is the real name of the woman you call Her Holiness -- she's the daughter of the Illuminatus Beth DuClare.  She founded the Church after the Collapse as a foothold to regaining power."
LinMayChen: "But how could she support the WTO?"
StandardPlayer: "She and Mr. Dumier knew that it would be too hard to pull together a one-world government from the chaos of the Collapse.  They chose to reinvent specific aspects of power and then bring them together later into one body."
LinMayChen: "The Scriptures..."
StandardPlayer: "A well-designed psychological tool."
LinMayChen: "I grew up in post-Collapse Hong Kong.  My parents were Max Chen and Maggie Chow, conspirators involved wirh MJ-12.  I swore I would never ruin myself with lies the way they did."
StandardPlayer: "You aren't the one to blame."
LinMayChen: "I've deceived millions.  Hundreds of millions of people.  I -- I'm such a fool!"
// Lin May storms away.
LinMayChen: "When I say that to people, they laugh and call me naive."
StandardPlayer: "Just another conspiracy theory.  Does anyone have proof?"
LinMayChen: "All I want is to understand what happened, the kidnapping, Saman leaving the Church, a Templar army..."
StandardPlayer: "It's a hard time for the Church, but this is when Her Holiness needs your support.  Tell her your concerns.  She will put your mind at ease."
LinMayChen: "Perhaps you're right.  May She forgive my doubt.  I grew up in post-Collapse Hong Kong.  My parents were Max Chen and Maggie Chow, conspirators involved wirh MJ-12.  My worst fear is that I'll give my allegiance to a deceptive cause.  May Order prevail."
// Lin May walks away.
LinMayChen: "I was one of the Church's first disciples!"
LinMayChen: "They lied to me!"
LinMayChen: "My whole life... just something they outlined on a piece of paper."
LinMayChen: "I feel like such a fool in this costume."
LinMayChen: "Thank you.  You've put my mind at ease."
LinMayChen: "Doubt comes easily like a weed.  Faith is something you must cultivate if you ever want to enjoy its fruits."
LinMayChen: "If I stand by Her Holiness, perhaps we can put an end to these rumors."

StandardPlayer: "Comes with the territory down here, I'd think."
M01MercBartender: "We get some mercs, some paranoids, some part-time SSC... sure.  But not like this.  Pug-dog scowl, stone deaf when I asked about the gun, red handkerchief on his head -- do-rag, they call it."
StandardPlayer: "Just a front.  I know the type.  Want me to ask him to leave?"
M01MercBartender: "No.  Don't start anything in here.  The punk went down to the cock-fight pit.  He's mixed up in all of that.  You don't want to get in the middle of cock-fight betting."
StandardPlayer: "I'll take that under advisement."
M01MercBarConfrontThug: "Confront the thug in the red do-rag down at the cock-fight pit.  Persuade him to turn over his gun."

StandardPlayer: "I've heard the name."
StandardPlayer: "I've seen him around."
M01MercJetGuard1: "He owes Miss Sak some money.  We're keeping his jet until he pays up.  Last thing we need is some stranger casing the landing pad."
StandardPlayer: "Can I talk to Miss Sak?"
M01MercJetGuard1: "What for?"
StandardPlayer: "Maybe I can help her get Mr. Black to pay."
StandardPlayer: "Maybe I can settle things on Mr. Black's behalf."
M01MercJetGuard1: "You better not be feeding me a line."
StandardPlayer: "You wouldn't fall for something like that."
M01MercJetGuard1: "I guess you're right.  You can go inside to talk to her, but I'll be standing right there in case you try something."

M01MercJetGuard1: "Time to go."
M01MercJetGuard1: "If you want to talk to Miss Sak, fine.  But no snooping around."
M01MercJetGuard1: "I'm here for Miss Sak to make sure you deal straight."
M01MercJetGuard1: "Make up your mind."
M01MercJetGuard1: "Miss Sak will see you when you can pay the pilot's fine."
M01MercJetGuard1: "If it was me, I'd let that cocky Brit twist in the wind."
M01MercJetGuard1: "Why Miss Sak trusts a scab flyer like Sid, I'll never know."
M01MercJetGuard1: "The jet's on the landing pad."
M01MercJetGuard1: "You have no reason to see Miss Sak."
M01MercJetGuard1: "From here out, you deal directly with Sid."
M01MercJetGuard1: "You're getting on my nerves."
M01MercJetGuard2: "The landing pad is off-limits."

M01MercJetGuard2: "Hey.  I was talking to you."

M01MercJetGuard2: "You may pass."
M01MercJetGuard1: "This guy wants to talk to you about Sid."
M01MercJetGuard1: "This chick wants to talk to you about Sid."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Are you going to pay his debt or bring me his head?"
M01MercSophiaSak: "Unless Sid Black sent you to pay his debt -- or you want to bring me his head -- you better let one of my mercenaries escort you out."
StandardPlayer: "What do I get if I bring you his head?"
M01MercSophiaSak: "That was a joke.  I already have his jet -- I don't have any use for a half pound of his flesh.  Did you have some business to discuss?  I need a pilot, but until Sid settles his debt I can't let him run product for the Omar."
StandardPlayer: "Why not make him work it off?"
M01MercSophiaSak: "He WAS working it off, then he lost a whole shipment of biocells to a WTO patrol."
Choice: "Here's 1000 credits to cover the loss, provided I can hire him myself if the need arises."
Choice: "Wish I could help."
Choice: "I'll think about settling his debt, but I don't have the money right now."
Choice: "Wish I could help."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Very good.  I will allow the jet to leave.  Why do you need a pilot?"
StandardPlayer: "That's my business."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Well, fly with Sid all you want -- the money gets back to me one way or another.  He's a good pilot, especially for... non-traditional jobs, if that's what you're after.  It's worth the few extra credits for air support and a good drop point."
StandardPlayer: "Now I just need to find this Sid Black."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Like I said, the WTO has him locked up in the civic building in New Seattle.  More debts to settle."
// GOAL: Rescue Sid Black from the New Seattle Civic Building, either by paying his fine or breaking him out.
StandardPlayer: "Now I just need to find Sid and go, right?"
M01MercSophiaSak: "Go down to the landing pad.  I'll send word to Sid to meet you by the jet."
// GOAL: Meet Sid Black by his jet when in need of a pilot.
M01MercSophiaSak: "Are you going to pay loverboy's fine or what?"
StandardPlayer: ""
M01MercSophiaSak: ""
StandardPlayer: ""
StandardPlayer: "Hate to break the news, but Sid's dead."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Not likely.  The WTO picked him up for unpaid terminal fees.  He's tucked away in a jail cell somewhere."
StandardPlayer: "I broke him out and then killed him."
M01MercSophiaSak: "For God's sake, why did you do that?"
StandardPlayer: "It was a confusing situation."
StandardPlayer: "He died while I was trying to break him out."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Well, there goes another pilot.  Good thing I managed to save his jet."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Now I can settle up with the Omar.  They're my biggest client."
M01MercSophiaSak: "It was a pleasure doing business."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Don't get my best pilot into any trouble."
M01MercSophiaSak: "Guess I can forget about collecting that fine."
M01MercSophiaSak: "I'll have to find a buyer for the jet."
M01MercSophiaSak: "I don't believe we have anything more to discuss."

Pawn: "Poor JC.  He's so misunderstood.  I can't believe that some people actually BLAME him for the Collapse."
StandardPlayer: "Does anyone really know what happened?  "
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "I CANNOT understand where they get these ideas.  He did disappear right when the Collapse occured, but only to protect himself.  "
StandardPlayer: "Actually, I thought he died--"
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "That's just what they want you to think.  He's still out there, somewhere.  My neighbor's best friend's cat-sitter said she once saw him at a truck stop in Montauk."
StandardPlayer: "Hm.  You seem to know a lot about JC."
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "Of course I do, I'm the president of the Seattle Chapter of the JC Appreciation and Promotion Society -- J-CAPS for short.  We're trying to piece together his true intentions and legacy.  Everyone knows that he worked for UNATCO, then the NSF, but did you know he loved corndogs and despised the color chartreuse?  It's also rumored that he was part alien, on his mother's side, we think possibly from Jupiter...."
StandardPlayer: "Um..."
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "I knew it!  I could tell you're pro-JC too.  You could start coming to meetings with me.  It would be great!"
StandardPlayer: "Yeah--"
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "You just missed our big annual event, where the national chapters meet at Liberty Island, where he was first stationed with UNATCO, to celebrate all things JC.  As usual, it didn't go quite as planned though, since the area's been cordoned off as a disaster area since the Collapse...   But I could sign you up for our newsletter?"
StandardPlayer: "Uh, yeah, I'll think about it."
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "Did you know JC is a Gemini?  That explains his dual nature and ability to see the other side of any issue. "
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "I'll bet Paul got bent out of shape when JC was getting all the attention.  That would be just like him."
M01MuseumAnnoyingGirl: "I heard he once took down an entire battalion of those old military bots, armed with just a multitool and some Monte Bites."

M01MuseumGuide: "The Gray Death was an international pandemic that thrust the world into chaos as the population was decimated by this plague."
M01MuseumGuide: "Unbeknownst to the public at the time, the biotech corporation Versalife engineered the Gray Death virus in order to infect the world's population, then profit enormously by selling them the only possible cure."
M01MuseumGuide: "Some scientists at Versalife were secretly involved in genetic manipulation that eventually spawned new lifeforms.  These transgenic creatures then escaped the labs during the Collapse.  They have adapted well and multiplied substantially, to become fairly common though hardly safely domesticated.  They gravitate toward living in heavily populated areas, offering them ample opportunity to scavenge, as well as to attack unsuspecting men, women, and children."
M01MuseumGuide: "Karkians are genetically manipulated reptilian quadrupeds, largely based on crocodile DNA.  They are territorial loners, with crushing jaws and razor sharp teeth.  They are slow moving predators, who will not race to attack, but are truly formidable in conjunction with greasels, another species of transgenic with which they share an unexpected symbiotic bond."
M01MuseumGuide: "It is strongly suspected that there are other transgenics that have not yet been documented officially."
M01MuseumGuide: "Greasels were created via the de-evolution of avine DNA to it's dinosaur origins.  They share a flock mentality and are hostile in these groups, but easily frightened when alone.  They attack by spitting a caustic venom that blurs the vision and affects the physical coordination of their prey.  They possess an unexpected symbiotic bond with karkians, and when attacking in the company of one, they will disable their target, then flank, waiting for the karkian to make the kill.  Then they will scavenge the remains when the karkian has finished feeding."
M01MuseumGuide: "Medbots can help a patient to quickly recover lost health; however, it may not be possible to achieve full recovery in one use, necessitating a waiting period while the unit recharges, before the injured individual can use it again."
M01MuseumGuide: "Repair bots can attend to the needs of biomodified individuals as well as electronic equipment.  Such humans can use them to recharge the bioelectric energy required for the function of their mods.  Repair bots will also fix any damaged or malfunctioning electronics that they encounter, such as cameras, lights, or other bots.  They can also deactivate demolitions devices."
M01MuseumGuide: "Security Bots are used by corporations and security agencies to protect against hostilities. The land-based units are armed with assault gun style weapons and often called "bulldogs" in common parlance because of their appearance.  Water-based units are used for security in aquatic environments. Their weapons include tight radius electrical discharges and torpedoes.  Air-based security bots are essentially flying turrets that can fit into small areas."
M01MuseumGuide: "Nanotechnology has been deployed in a number of ways, perhaps most notably in the form of biomods.  An individual is infused with nanites that provide him with a given biomodification, such as a reflex boost or enhanced strength."
M01MuseumGuide: "While the primary cause of the Great Collapse remains unclear, it's repercussions were immediately evident.  Global communications were lost when the Aquinas router disintegrated.  Without it, the world descended into a dark age, as interdependent industries faltered or failed completely.  The electronically facilitated ties that bound the world together unraveled, fragmenting States and nations across the globe.  It has been a slow and cumbersome recovery from this catastrophe."
M01MuseumGuide: "UNATCO (United Nations' Anti-Terrorist Coalition) was formed to deal with escalating unrest and terrorist activity.  The organization was created with the best intentions, but fell under corrupt influences that lead it astray, and crippled it's abilities to adequately combat the Gray Death.  During this same period, the NSF (Northwest Secessionist Forces) emerged, when several northwestern states tried to secede from the U.S. in protest.  Although the secession was halted, the NSF and the dissent it represented remained.  It evolved into the National Secessionist Forces and opposed UNATCO, using guerrilla tactics. The NSF is regarded as a terrorist fringe group because of their attacks; however, their suspicions that the cure for the plague was being intentionally delayed in order to benefit an elite few were later proven valid."
M01MuseumGuide: "There is a wide range of opinions about biomodification technology and how it affects humanity.  Besides milder forms of apprehension or praise, there are extremist groups on both sides of the issue.  There are those that promote the thorough and complete biomodification of all citizens.  These individuals have gone so far as to develop dangerous and unapproved biomods, available only on the black market.  At the other end of the spectrum, there are militant extremists so opposed to what they view as pollution of the human species that they terrorize and murder those who have biomods."
M01MuseumGuide: "Although both the extent and intent of his actions remain shrouded in mystery, JC Denton played a major role in resolving the Gray Death plague; however, some suspect that he also had something to do with initiating the Great Collapse.  He began his career as an agent for UNATCO, but when he realized that it was corrupt, he joined his brother Paul and the NSF revolutionaries.  Both JC and Paul remain powerful and mysterious figures.  They disappeared around the time of the Collapse, so little is known about their true actions or intentions.  In their absences, both their deification and demonization grow in the public mind."

M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "The scientists were using their Mako contact to smuggle personnel out of the country, presumably right under the noses of the Templars.  Report to Missionary Chen.  She will know the wisest course of action."
M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "Her Holiness must've sent you.  Let us know when the coast is clear."
M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "Her Holiness must've sent you.  Let me know when the coast is clear."
M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "May Order prevail."
M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "I have a lot to report -- after we get rid of these thugs and fanatics."
M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "Minister Chen will decide what to do about Mako."
M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "Don't worry about me.  I'll find my way back to the cathedral."
M01SpaceOrderCaptain: "May Order reign."
M01SpaceThug1: "I wanna join.  Sign me up."
M01SpaceTemplar: "The Knights Templar make very strict demands on their members."
M01SpaceThug1: "That don't scare me.  I've been gettin' in trouble since the day I was born."
M01SpaceTemplar: "Doctrinal demands.  You must renounce all body-modification, nanotech, genetic, cybernetic -- everything.  And you must be ready to destroy the transgressors."
M01SpaceThug1: "Can't afford any of that feeb medicine anyway."
M01SpaceTemplar: "We don't want simple mercenaries.  We want brothers who refuse to let their tissues become one of the WTO's commercial interests.  We want brothers who see that the Order Church's doctrine of self-improvement cleverly implies modification, materialism, everything that the church's founders abhorred."
M01SpaceThug1: "Hell, I'll second that."
M01SpaceTemplar: "You sound sincere.  I will discuss the matter with my superiors."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "Friend, lend me your attention."
StandardPlayer: "Not interested, sorry."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "Do not mistake me for a solicitor.  I was sent by her blessedness, High Augur Chen herself.  I bring a warning... and a request."
StandardPlayer: "Go on."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "The WTO, who operate this terminal, have seized the aircraft of one of our seekers.  She carries with her an encrypted blueprint, an unimaginably valuable bit of research."
StandardPlayer: "What kind of blueprint?"
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "A schematic of the ApostleCorp nanite-capsid, a component the WTO could use to ensure their biomod monopoly.  We have a team in place to rescue our seeker, but we need a diversion."
StandardPlayer: "What do you want me to do?"
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "The WTO trust you.  Go to the [upstairs control station] and take down the power.  That will let us slip by their defenses."
StandardPlayer: "Let me take a look around.  I'll think about it."
M01TerminalSabotage: "Help an Order strike team rescue a captured agent by shutting down WTO Terminal power in the  [upstairs control station]."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "Heed me, friend."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "High Augur Chen will reward your loyalty."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "Go now."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "Yes!  YES!  The blow is decisive!"
StandardPlayer: "My pleasure."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "The strike team has succeeded... a glorious day for Order!  Her blessedness has requested that I reward you with these: two upgrade cannisters for your biomods."
StandardPlayer: "Thanks.  We better get out of here."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "You speak well, friend.  Go.  May balance lead your way."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "I will wait for my strike team,"
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "Go."
M01TerminalTerrorist_DELETED_ARCH_D_958: "All is well.  Rest your mind.  Please.  Rejoin our seekers at the refinery."
M02ArcologyAnnouncer: "New Cairo atmospheric conditions -- normal."
M02ArcologyAnnouncer: "Arcology police request all citizens to respect the barriers on the [Lower Tier] until an attempted robbery of the AnubisBank branch has been resolved."
M02ArcologyAnnouncer: "Travel outside arcology walls is discouraged.  Particulate matter levels are severe.  Always wear breathing equipment when you have business in the medina."
M02ArcologyAnnouncer: "Top Tier penthouses are reserved for arcology management.  Please conduct your business in public areas or leased offices."
M02ArcologyAnnouncer: "The Tarsus Gifted School on [Tier 3] will be accepting new applications starting next month.  The Arcology Chairman promises more city funding, which means more opportunity for all."
M02ArcologyAnnouncer: "Attention citizens: Horde RCP on [Tier 2] is no longer accepting unscheduled personal visits to their offices.  Prospective employees should file their credentials electronically."
M02ArcologyChairman: "Hey -- how'd you get in here?  No one barges into the residence of the Arcology Chairman."
StandardPlayer: "I turned up evidence that you've been perpetuating the plague in the medina -- by not allowing HORDE to move ahead with a counter-agent."
M02ArcologyChairman: "That's a pretty fanciful accusation."
StandardPlayer: "I [watched the vmail you sent to the chief scientist at HORDE.]"
M02ArcologyChairman: "Resourceful little muckraker, aren't you?  How much do you want?"
StandardPlayer: "What do you mean?"
M02ArcologyChairman: "How much to keep you and whoever sent you here quiet?  I'll give you [2000] credits."
Choice: "Deal.  Give me the money and I'll keep your dirty secret."
Choice: "I came here to kill you."
Choice: "I don't want your money, just an explanation."
M02ArcologyChairman: "Here you go.  Now leave.  And keep your nose out of my business."
StandardPlayer: "Nice view you've got.  Enjoy the sight of the poor suffocating at your feet?"
M02ArcologyChairman: "Are you a journalist or something?"
StandardPlayer: "I'd like to hear you explain how a city chairman can turn his back on thousands of people."
M02ArcologyChairman: "You wouldn't dare."
StandardPlayer: "Oh yeah?"
M02ArcologyChairman: "You think you know something.  Fine.  But if you had any idea who I really work for, you wouldn't touch a hair on my head."
// Runs to set off an alarm.
M02ArcologyChairman: "For your information, testing has yet to prove the counter-agent's safety.  I'm not going to be responsible for creating yet another cloud of self-replicating dust motes."
StandardPlayer: "It could hardly be worse than [black-lung]."
M02ArcologyChairman: "That's easy for an outsider to say.  If I don't weigh the consequences the city might get sued -- or I could lose my job."
M02ArcologyChairman: "Hey -- how'd you get in here?  No one barges into the residence of the Arcology Chairman."
M02ArcologyChairman: "Leave.  That's an order."
M02ArcologyChairman: "(grumble)"
M02ArcologyChairman: "You won't get away with this!"
M02ArcologyChairman: "Don't think I won't put up a fight!"
M02ArcologyChairman: "Hurt me, and I guarantee that you won't leave the arcology alive."
M02ArcologyChairman: "Step over to the window.  Look at that wasteland.  Imagine if you were responsible for rebuilding an economic system that could accommodate a planet full of beggars.  Not as simple as it might seem to people on the outside."
M02ArcologyChairman: "I believe we're through."
M02ArcologyChairman: "Goodbye."
M02BankHeadSSC: "Bank is closed, sir."
M02BankHeadSSC: "Bank is closed, ma'am."
StandardPlayer: "What's going on?"
M02BankHeadSSC: "Bank robbery.  The crooks are still inside -- trapped."
StandardPlayer: "Who would be nuts enough to hold up a bank inside the arcology?"
M02BankHeadSSC: "Always another desert scab thinks the city owes him an easy life.  Better stand clear.  If they make a break for it, we have orders to shoot."
StandardPlayer: "You gonna storm the place?"
M02BankHeadSSC: "Do I look like a rogue commander?  They said hang back, I'm hanging back.  I haven't even seen the crooks.  This could be a drill for all I know."
M02BankHeadSSC: "Enter the bank at your own risk."
M02BankHeadSSC: "I have my orders."
M02BankHeadSSC: "Don't interfere with my people."
M02BankHeadSSC: "Very well.  I can follow orders.  "Make way for the vigilante."  Here you go.  I'm making way."
M02BankHeadSSC: "I'm just a junior commander.  What do I know?"
M02BankHeadSSC: "What?  Do you want a medal?"
M02BankSSC1: "It's a dangerous situation in there."
M02BankSSC1: "You'll be fine if you stay outside the bank."
M02BankSSC1: "We won't let the perpetrators get away."
M02BankSSC1: "We're not supposed to ask any questions about what just happened in there."
M02BankSSC1: "They don't tell us much sometimes."
M02BankSSC1: "I've been right here the whole time."
M02BankSSC2: "This is the real thing -- a bank robbery -- in the arcology!"
M02BankSSC2: "Crazy scabs -- I wonder if they'll make a break for it."
M02BankSSC2: "They're surrounded.  Why don't they just give up?"
M02BankSSC2: "Guess you took care of things.  No skin off MY nose."
M02BankSSC2: "Stupid place to commit a robbery."
M02BankSSC2: "Thank goodness there wasn't any shooting."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "Hey, buddy.  Know what's going on?"
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "Hey, buddy.  Know what's going on?"
StandardPlayer: "I figured YOU would."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "It's not a bank robbery -- I'll tell you that much.  I overheard a couple of guys talking.  Sounds like corporate espionage."
StandardPlayer: "What did they say?"
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "I think they extracted the CEO.  Found him "on ice," they said.  Cryogenic storage.  Now what sort of company keeps their executives in deep-freeze?"
StandardPlayer: "You're quite the detective."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "I'm not gonna be a bank security guard forever, you know."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "They sound like pros -- thought I heard someone [plant a LAM].  I told the commander to get us some armor, but he just shrugged and said it wasn't his call."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "I gotta stay here.  Orders."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "They said they took the CEO out of the city.  I wonder where."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "I never get to see any action."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "How's anybody supposed to move up the ranks if they don't  ever let us DO anything?"
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "They still won't let us go in -- must be something top-secret back there."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "I think it's a conspiracy.  Dirty money.  Somehow the arcology chairman's involved, so we get pushed aside."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "What they don't count on is that people like me are good at piecing together the clues."
M02BankSSCLoneWolf: "Think I'll pick me up a laser mic and see what I can find out on the upper tiers."
M02BankTemplar1: "I heard they took the leader out of the city."
M02BankTemplar2: "Why was he frozen?"
M02BankTemplar1: "Must've gotten sick.  Probably some rich guy, expects to be cured by "future technology.""
M02BankTemplar2: "By the time they thaw him out, people won't be people anymore.  They'll be scaffolding for invisible machines, liquid metal..."
M02BankTemplar1: "Not if we have anything to do with it."
M02BankTemplar2: "It's the rich people.  They want to be perfect and live forever, so they pour money into this stuff.  But this stuff's not people.  It's dead.  It's dead money and polycarbons."
M02BankTemplar1: "Didn't know you were such a futurist."
M02BankTemplar2: "That's why I joined up.  In case there's a way to turn things around."
M02HeadPhysician: "You look fine to me."
StandardPlayer: "Anything I can do to help?"
M02HeadPhysician: "Just stay out of the way.  Too many people dying."
StandardPlayer: "As you wish.  I'm looking for someone named Billie Adams.  I heard she is in this mosque."
M02HeadPhysician: "The woman from Seattle -- yes.  She is in the upstairs office, reviewing our logs for the Order.  What are you?  New Cairo?  Why come here?  Too much pollution.  Bad for the lungs."
Note: "Billie Adams is in the upstairs office of the mosque."
StandardPlayer: "That serious?"
M02HeadPhysician: "Just look.  It's nanite dust these people breathe.  Fallout from the Collapse twenty years ago, probably a leak from a secret laboratory nobody remembers anymore."
M02HeadPhysician: "Do not interfere."
M02HeadPhysician: "I have work to do."
M02HeadPhysician: "(sigh) These poor people..."
M02HeadPhysician: "We haven't much to offer, but if you can get us out of here, I can give you a medkit.  Just clear the main floor of the mosque so we can escape."
M02HeadPhysician: "It never ends.  First, watching patients succumb to Plague 11, with no reprieve, and now a new virus, the Templars, threaten all of Cairo."
M02HeadPhysician: "This city is lost.  Toxic air and a fanatic group enforcing a military state."
M02HeadPhysician: "We've got to get out of here.  I'd prefer the infested air of Old Cairo to waiting for our doom here."
M02HeadPhysician: "The air's clean in Old Cairo now, and the Templars haven't seized full control there.  That's where we need to go."
M02HeadPhysician: "Plague 11 is history.  Now people are running TO Old Cairo."
M02HeadPhysician: "We've got to get out of here.  "
StandardPlayer: "The Mosque's been cleared out.  It's safe for you to make a run for Old Cairo."
M02HeadPhysician: "Thanks.  For your help, here's a medkit."

It's been SIX hours and I still haven't heard from anything back about the design glitch I reported.  I demand that one of your engineers respond to this issue immediately.  I will be waiting."
// mistakes player for someone else?
M02HordeGermanTemplar: "Venning!  I demand an answer about how you plan to rectify this problem with the fuel cells and the haptic receptors.  We've been in production for three months -- and now this??  You assured us you'd fully tested the design virtually and had no problems.  Now we're going to spend two weeks on hold while we fix this mess.  I want you to know I'm holding you personally accountable for this.  "
StandardPlayer: "Excuse me?"
M02HordeGermanTemplar: "In spite of your feeble excuses and poor foresight we're still going to deliver to the field on time so that Templar forces are adequately supported by this armor in their fight against modified freaks.  But that doesn't mean I won't find the time to stop by and exterminate YOU as soon as we're finished. "
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "That haptic interface is MINE.  "
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "He can keep his precious integrated actuation systems.  They're nothing special."
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "He probably doesn't even really understand our research -- only recognizes it as a commodity to be bartered away."
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "Maybe it's just time to move on from anthropomorphic architectures."
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "The work on quantum hydraulic locomotive amplification has been stimulating --don't get me wrong-- but I don't know how much longer I can bear to see my work auctioned to the highest bidder."
StandardPlayer: "Which project are you working on?"
M02HordeProjectDirector: "None of your business."
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "...a responsibility to share my research with the rest of the scientific community and humankind at large."
M02HordeProjectDirector: " Your first responsibility is to Templar HQ -- remember that.  I just spent two hours trying to convince our superiors that they haven't wasted millions on the Project:[Armor] research, even though you've leaked key design info.  "
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "A century ago, Freeman Dyson bemoaned that modern scientists were responsible for the preponderance of toys for the rich over necessities for the poor in the output of our laboratories -- haven't we gotten past this?"
M02HordeProjectDirector: "If you want to keep your state-of-the-art development facility, you'll continue developing these "toys" for the rich."
M02HordeLiaisonScientist: "The acquisition of scientific knowledge should be based on an altruistic gift economy, not profit.  Merton explained that treating discoveries as public knowledge was a cornerstone characteristic fueling successful scientific inquiry."

StandardPlayer: "What are you doing here?"
M02HordeTaxWoman: "Trying to get access to this hangar to see if it might explain these figures...and failing miserably.  Whoever said the WTO has perfected bureaucracy has obviously never dealt with the Templars."
StandardPlayer: "What do you mean?"
M02HordeTaxWoman: "The WTO has been trying to sort out the Templars duties and tariffs payments.  It just doesn't add up, so they've dispatched me to do a proper audit.  Unfortunately, they're refusing to cooperate.  They put on a show of amicability, but every time I try to gain access to the hangar to actually SEE what they are transporting, I get the runaround."
StandardPlayer: "What do you suspect is going on?"
M02HordeTaxWoman: "I have no idea, but if the algorithms I'm running are giving me the proper figures, whatever it is, they're not paying nearly enough in taxes and tariffs for transporting it via a WTO facility...  Maybe you'd have better luck?  A new face?  If you turn anything up and pass the info along, we can make it worth your while."
StandardPlayer: "I'll see what I can do..."
M02HordeTaxWoman: "Did you turn up anything?"
Choice: "The Templars can't possibly be paying enough taxes on their little project.  They're transporting Powered Assault Armor and in large numbers."
Choice: "Sorry.  I don't know anything about what's going on in there."
M02HordeTaxWoman: "Very interesting.  I'll be sure this info gets passed along to my superiors and the Templars are punished for this violation.  It's a serious offense."
M02HordeTaxWoman: "It's not like they have a warm and fuzzy image to uphold.  What are they hiding?"
M02HordeTaxWoman: "I don't even care WHAT it is they're transporting in there, just as long as the WTO gets their cut."
M02HordeTaxWoman: "I don't know what they were thinking, assuming they could fool the WTO forever."
M02HordeTaxWoman: "Remember -- you are leasing from US.  You must grant the WTO entry for investigation of our own hangars."
M02HordeReceptionist: "The Templars restrict access to their facilities.  It's not a public airport.  As soon as you've filled out all the necessary paperwork, they'll be glad to give you a complete tour."
M02HordeTaxWoman: "I've done that THREE times already.  This is ridiculous."
M02HordeReceptionist: "It must've gotten lost in transit.  There's no record here.  Or perhaps you did not fill them out completely?  As soon as they have your forms in order, they'll be happy to permit your investigation.  Until then, there's nothing I can do. "

M02HordeArmorScientist1: "We are pleased to serve, especially when so generously compensated."
M02HordeTemplarVisitor: "Your work will not be forgotten.  When millions of Templars march to victory, you and your team will share in our triumph over the impure."

M02HubKioskTemplar2: "Not one Omar will escape.  This will be the end of their presence in Cairo."
M02HubKioskTemplar1: "If only you were right, but I fear you make them too human in your imagination.  A cyborg doesn't get discouraged."
M02HubKioskTemplar2: "They must have commanders, though.  Soon they'll see that their kind won't be tolerated."
M02HubKioskTemplar1: "The Omar is not a human organization.  It's a self-replicating machine that grows itself around human bodies.  All we can do is buy time until we have a weapon to defeat the entire network."
M02HubKioskTemplar2: "I don't mind taking them down one at a time."
M02HubKioskTemplar1: "That would be a tedious business.  With luck, the rumors out of Germany are true, and soon we'll start a new phase of cleansing.  Purity can be slow to achieve, or, like a revalation, it can crystallize instantly."

StandardPlayer: "Oh."
M02HubKioskTemplar1: "The individual worker -- careerist, lets say -- seldom understands how his small labor contributes to the products of human history.

M02LeilasUncle: "Are you sure he was going to murder the children?"
StandardPlayer: "I'm certain.  Fortunately, I got there in time."

M02LeilasUncle: "I am a prisoner!  In my own home!"
M02LeilasUncle: "A biomod infusion succeeds for one of my relatives, and suddenly we are rats.  All of the Nassifs.  I didn't invent biomodification.  Why do they want to kill me?"
M02LeilasUncle: "The Templars have been airlifting troops into the arcology.  This is a foreign invasion, pure and simple."
M02LeilasUncle: "I don't know how long the medina can survive."
M02LeilasUncle: "Sometimes I wonder why I should care what happens to me anymore, after what they did to my daughter Eeva at the gifted school."
M02LeilasUncle: "Thank goodness my daughter is safe, at least for now.  Thanks to you, she was able to escape the arcology just in time."
M02LeilasUncle: "And the air keeps getting worse.  If the Templars don't get us, Plague 11 will."

StandardPlayer: "Sounds like a valuable invention.  Why aren't they manufacturing it?"
M02OmarTrader: "The Arcology Chairman has his reasons for delaying deployment.  Unclear.  Perhaps you will accept a mercenary assignment from me, in exchange for access to Horde RCP, [Arcology 2-South]."

StandardPlayer: "The counter-agent sounds like something that would interest the villagers.  How do I get into Horde?"
// Placeholder, obviously.

M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "Before she disappeared, my friend Eeva mentioned a hiding place in the ventilation system.  Maybe if you hunt around you can find her.  But please be careful with this information.  She seemed to believe she was in real danger."
StandardPlayer: "She is..."
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "She may be..."
StandardPlayer: "Do you think there's any truth in the gossip about the missing kids?"
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "All I know is what my friend Eeva told me."
StandardPlayer: "Who is she?  Why would she know more?"
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "She's one of the missing students.  There was no foul play, she just went into hiding."
StandardPlayer: "Eeva Nassif?  Her uncle asked me to check up on her."
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "That's her.  Don't worry -- she's just hiding."
StandardPlayer: "But why?"
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "She found a secret office where the Headmaster was conducting strange research and gathering data on the students.  She said it looked very suspicious and that our names were on it.   I'd check it out myself, but unlike Eeva, I'm afraid of getting caught somewhere off-limits.  You could easily check into it yourself though..."
StandardPlayer: "Yeah I've met Eeva.  In the ventilation shafts.  She told me all about the Headmaster's secret office, but I haven't checked into it."
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "Yeah, she mentioned something about that to me too. [refresh directions]  I'd check it out myself, but unlike Eeva, I'm afraid of getting caught somewhere off-limits.  You could easily check into it yourself though..."
StandardPlayer: "All the students here seem to be pretty stressed and paranoid."
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "It is a competitive program here.  I make pretty good marks myself, but everyone's worried about getting kicked out... especially now..."
StandardPlayer: "Why is it worse right now?"
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "Two students have gone missing.  The faculty and most of the students have no idea what happened."
StandardPlayer: "...but it sounds like you might know more?"
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "Ibrahim and Eeva didn't run away, but they are scared.  They went into hiding, after finding their names on some sort of secret roster, thinking they were in danger.  They told me my name was on the list too and tried to get me to go with them, but I wasn't convinced; however, I am watching over my shoulder now."
StandardPlayer: "Thanks for the tips.  I followed up on it, so you and your friends should be safe now."
M02SchoolBarracksStudent1: "What do you mean?"
StandardPlayer: "It WAS the headmaster.  He was mixed up with some fanatical group and he had plans for certain students here.  You have nothing to worry about now.  He has been "removed.""

M02SchoolSittingStudent1: "Nothing.  But that's probably part of the admissions process -- you have to be clever enough to discover that it exists.  If you don't mind, I've got to get back to my studying now.  I've only put in twelve hours today."
M02SchoolSittingStudent1: "Stop looking over my shoulder.  Unless you're one of the secret Evaluators... heh heh"
M02SchoolSittingStudent1: "I'm never going to finish this if you keep distracting me."
M02SchoolSittingStudent1: "After I finish with Calculus, I've got to spend some time on my Ethics homework."
M02SchoolSittingStudent1: "I'm sorry, but I'm really busy right now."

StandardPlayer: "Why does it seem so edgy around here?"
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "The grades just came out for the biochem and intuition classes.  Some kids aren't thrilled about it."
StandardPlayer: "Upset enough to runaway?"
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "Er... So I guess you've heard about Eeva and Jennifer?"
StandardPlayer: "What about them?"
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "If they really did run away, their friends would know where they are, but no one seems to have any idea...  It's kinda got everyone spooked."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "Wherever they are, I hope they're okay."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "I can't imagine where they might be."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "I've got to stop worrying about them.  I really need to stay focused on my studies."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "As if school isn't already stressful enough."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "It was unbelievable -- SSC just hauled him off!  I wish I'd had my camera..."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "I always knew Archer was a jerk, but I had no idea he was psychotic too."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "I wonder if they roughed him up before they took him away.  I kinda hope so..."
M02SchoolSittingStudent2: "I asked one guard if I could help -- you know, zap Archer with the stun prod a few more times -- but he wasn't too keen on that."

M02SchoolSittingStudent3: "I can't talk right now.  Mrs. Rashidi wouldn't like it."
M02SchoolSittingStudent3: "If you really want to talk to students, you should try somewhere without teachers around."
M02SchoolSittingStudent3: "I'm nervous enough about my grades.  Don't get me in trouble with the teacher."
M02SchoolSittingStudent3: "I hope this isn't some weird test of my concentration..."
M02SchoolSittingStudent3: "Can't you see -- I'm in class right now."
M02SchoolTeacher: "The rumors about Tarsus have been greatly exaggerated."
StandardPlayer: "What rumors?"
M02SchoolTeacher: "Oh, I'm sorry, I just assumed you were another disgruntled parent... You ARE a parent of one of the students, aren't you?"
StandardPlayer: "Oh... but of course!  I just wanted to stop by and check on things."
M02SchoolTeacher: "Well, as you can see, the students are hard at work, as usual.  "
M02SchoolTeacher: "Shh.  You'll disturb their studies."
M02SchoolTeacher: "Tarsus continues to provide the best educational opportunities."
M02SchoolTeacher: "I'm in the middle of working on my lesson plans right now."

StandardPlayer: "Training for a physical endurance test?  "
M02SchoolTrackStudent: "Nah.  I always ace those.  I just like to run a couple miles a few times a day to stay in shape."
StandardPlayer: "You seem pretty calm.  Most of the other kids around here seem pretty riled up."
M02SchoolTrackStudent: "Yeah...  They're just worried about those two who went missing.  Me?  I don't really care one way or the other.  I'm guessing they just couldn't hack it, so they bailed.  Just means less competition for me."
M02SchoolTrackStudent: "They're just excited about the show the SSC just put on, dragging Headmaster Archer out of here.  Me?  I've got superior concentration and focus."
M02SchoolTrackStudent: "I really don't understand why my classmates are so easily amused and distracted."
M02SchoolTrackStudent: "I'm trying to stay focused here."
M02SchoolTrackStudent: "I'd like to get back to my running, if you don't mind."
M02ShantySheriff: "I haven't seen this craft before.  What brings you to our small medina?"
StandardPlayer: "Are you the mayor or something?"
M02ShantySheriff: "The New Cairo arcology has full-service landing bays.  Who ever lands in the town?  Nobody.  I see the helicopter, and I have to ask: who is this?  I'm Ali _____, President of Business Development."
StandardPlayer: "I'm here to see a friend."
M02ShantySheriff: "Tell me his name."
StandardPlayer: "Just personal business."
M02ShantySheriff: "My apology, but a few questions are necessary.  We have a big black-market problem, especially now with the cyborgs involved.  Who is your friend?"
Choice: "Leila Nassif."
Choice: "All I can say is I'm not with the black market.  Fair?"
M02ShantySheriff: "A friend of the Nassifs -- of course.  Don't let me delay you.  You have my most heartfelt condolences."
StandardPlayer: "Condolences?"
M02ShantySheriff: "For the murders last night.  You haven't heard?"
StandardPlayer: "No, what happened?"
M02ShantySheriff: "Leila's mother and father were killed.  The whole town is grieving.  Leila was the first of us "scabs" to go to the arcology's Gifted School, and she never turned her back on us, not even when her job took her to America.  That such a thing could happen to her family -- we are stunned."
StandardPlayer: "Is Leila all right?"
M02ShantySheriff: "The story is that she got away.  She and her parents were hiding in the greenhouse.  No one knows who the killers were or what they wanted."
StandardPlayer: "How do I find this greenhouse?"
M02ShantySheriff: "It's at [the end of the road] -- can't miss it.  Tell the Nassifs our thoughts are with them."
M02ShantySheriff: "Another secretive alien coming to the slums to commit his crimes.  Just what we need."
M02ShantySheriff: "Another secretive alien coming to the slums to commit her crimes.  Just what we need."
StandardPlayer: "I'm trying to be straight with you."
M02ShantySheriff: "Don't think you will be invisible.  Since the Nassif murders, we are all wide awake."
StandardPlayer: "Nassif?"
M02ShantySheriff: "The parents of Leila Nassif, murdered last night at the greenhouse she donated to the town.  Maybe this is nothing to you, but she is a hero to the people here, the first one to go to the Gifted School in the arcology.  If you are here to terrorize or steal, watch out!"
M02ShantySheriff: "Leila funds the greenhouse to help the town develop its own food supply.  Her family runs it."
M02ShantySheriff: "The medina can't afford enough police to protect businesses -- or families."
M02ShantySheriff: "We live like barbarians -- all of us outside the arcology."
M02ShantySheriff: "This isn't some scabland ghosttown.  We watch each other's backs."
M02ShantySheriff: "I don't want to see you talking to the Omar."
M02ShantySheriff: "You look rich.  Rich people are up to no good when they come to the medina."

M02SickChild: "I think I'm getting better."
M02SickChild: "Maybe if they knew I was sick, they'd let me in."
M02SickChildsMom: "I wish it could be that way, baby."
M02SickChild: "I guess I just wasn't smart enough, so they don't care what happens to me."
M02SickChildsMom: "Nonsense."
M02SickChild: "(cough cough)  Why won't they at least let us in the city?"
M02SickChildsMom: "The air's not so bad inside the mosque.  You'll start to feel better.  Just get some rest and forget about Tarsus.  It's a very selective program."
M02SickChild: "If you say so."

StandardPlayer: "What's wrong?"
M02SickChildsMom: "Well, it's my daughter, [Mina].  Look at her!"
M02SickChild: "(cough cough)  It's okay, Mom.  I'll get better."
M02SickChildsMom: "Ever since she didn't get into the Tarsus Academy, her [black-lung] has been getting worse.  She should be inside the arcology, studying and breathing filtered air.  She's always been such a... good student... (sobs)"
StandardPlayer: "I wish there was something I could do."
M02SickChildsMom: "That's very kind.  (sniffle)  But unless you're on the admissions committee at the gifted school -- or unless you're some kind of genius hacker and can change their computer to put Mina on the acceptance list, there's really not much to do except wait and pray."
M02SickChild: "Really, Mom, I'll be fine."
M02SickChildsMom: "Some of us still worship the old gods, despite everything that's happened."
StandardPlayer: "Maybe I'll get a chance to help your daughter.  She wants into Tarsus, huh?  I'll see what I can do."
StandardPlayer: "Mina, huh?  I saw her name in the school's recruitment database.  I moved her to the "accepted" category."
StandardPlayer: "I saw your daughter's name in the school's recruitment database.  I moved her to the "accepted" category."
M02SickChildsMom: "You mean...?"
StandardPlayer: "Your daughter's now a Tarsus girl.  Check with the authorities before letting her move into the arcology, though.  There's been some trouble in the city."
M02SickChildsMom: "Mina!  Did you hear that?"
M02SickChild: "Thanks, mister."
M02SickChild: "Thanks, miss."
M02SickChildsMom: "You don't know how much this means to us.  It could save her life..."

StandardPlayer: "A member of the Order.  Are you with the summit?"
M03BarOrderWoman: "Certainly not.  I live here in Trier.  Seekers here don't care very much for this notion of a summit."
StandardPlayer: "Why not?"
M03BarOrderWoman: "We have heard Luminon Saman's call for a return to scripture.  In this shard we read the scripture, the original word of Her Holiness, not what she says for the camera today or tomorrow or two weeks ago."
StandardPlayer: "What's the difference?"
M03BarOrderWoman: "There.  Exactly the attitude that opens the door for tyranny in a free state.  A free press is nothing if the audience remembers only what the special guest last said on the talk show."
StandardPlayer: "I was just curious about the summit.  Never mind."
M03BarOrderWoman: "Her Holiness and [Chairman] Dumier are making a business deal.  It may bring money, it may bring power, but it won't bring balance into the lives of ordinary people."
StandardPlayer: "I wouldn't be so quick to trust Luminon Saman."
M03BarOrderWoman: "So.  That's it.  Come to my city and insult our religious leaders."
StandardPlayer: "Sorry, I ---"
M03BarOrderWoman: "No.  You listen.  The truth is in the Word, the old writings, the meditations on the 52 cetasikas.  Saman says only this, and I agree.  The truth is not in secret deals with bankers and factory owners."
M03BarOrderWoman: "The whole reason I joined the Order was to get away from factory-model thinking."
M03BarOrderWoman: "If Her Holiness thinks she can put us all into a great pre-Collapse wealth-making machine, she must think she's a god."
M03BarOrderWoman: "Saman understands that the human body is no machine."
M03BarOrderWoman: "The lesson of the Collapse is that we need to learn to live as human beings."
M03BarOrderWoman: "Any economic system designed for millions of people soon begins to live for its own sake."
M03BarOrderWoman: "Social machinery is no less harmful to the human organism than biomodification, cybernetics, nanite plagues, and the other modern evils rightfully denounced by Luminon Saman."
M03BarOrderWoman: "Enough talk.  It only makes me angry."

M03ConstableWTO2: "I don't know why they haven't sent in one of our own security teams."
M03ConstableWTO2: "I saw another one of you elites, but she's assigned to Luminon Saman.  I'd like to know what that's all about."
M03ConstableWTO2: "Guess you guys pulled it off."
M03ConstableWTO2: "I asked Mr. Dumier how I become one of the elites, and he just shrugged me off."
M03ConstableWTO2: "Guess you have to be modified to see any real action."
M03ConstableWTO2: "I applied for infusions, but they said my lipids were weak.  I still want a second opinion."
M03ConstableWTO2: "Guess you weren't elites after all.  Just mercenaries."

M03Pedestrian2: "Tension has been high for months.  It just finally exploded."
M03Pedestrian2: "SSC hasn't got a chance in settling this.  "
M03SSCTied1: "Max Klein, SSC Trier, Private First Class.  Under who's authority are you conducting this rescue operation?"
StandardPlayer: "Hi, Max.  Your brother sent me.  The Constable."
M03SSCTied1: "Very well.  Please convey my apology to the main office.  The workers caught us by surprise and took our weapons."
StandardPlayer: "You're alive.  I think that's all your brother cares about right now."
M03SSCTied1: "What are my orders?"
Choice: "Stay here.  Let me make sure the escape route is clear."
Choice: "Make a run for it, then report to the Constable's office."
M03SSCTied1: "As you wish."
M03SSCTied1: "Understood"
// TRIGGER: Max runs for it.
M03SSCTied1: "I'd do it again.  I don't care."
M03SSCTied1: "It's tough dealing with the public, but I like a challenge."
M03SSCTied1: "Thanks for the extraction.  You have my professional admiration."
M03SSCTied2: "You need a striker?  Because I'm ready."
StandardPlayer: "What's a striker?"
M03SSCTied2: "He goes in first to break up the enemy line.  Those guys caught us by surprise, but they aren't anything close to pros.  Give me a gun.  I want to teach them a quick lesson."
Choice: "Hold tight for a moment."
Choice: "You better make a run for it.  I'll handle the mechanics union."
Choice: "[Weapon choice -- fill out later]"
M03SSCTied2: "Okay.  But don't say I didn't offer to help."
M03SSCTied2: "Oh well.  Guess there's not much I can do without my weapon."
// TRIGGER: the guy flees.
M03SSCTied2: "They should've killed me when they had the chance."
// TRIGGER: the guy attacks whoever's left.
M03SSCTied2: "Sure you don't need a striker?  I was top of my class."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "Her Holiness comes to Trier to make peace, and her gesture is answered with rioting."
M03StreetOrderMan2: "Panzerwerks did not take kindly to our efforts to open their eyes to the harm they are causing the earth."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "What can we do?  I worry for the safety of Her Holiness."
M03StreetOrderMan2: "Have faith.  This must be part of some greater order we cannot yet see.  "
StandardPlayer: "What's going on?  The city's under martial law."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "The Panzerwerks factory has erupted into a riot, just as Her Holiness is coming to Trier to try to soothe tensions."
StandardPlayer: "Why the conflict in the first place?  I know that the WTO and Order have long been at odds, but their reaction seems extreme."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "Tension in this region is particularly intense.  The Order has been trying for some time to persuade Panzerwerks to cease desolating this region and restore to Nature what is rightfully hers.  "
StandardPlayer: "Hm.  What kind of persuasion are you talking about?"
M03StreetOrderMan1: "We merely did what we could to protect the environment, according to Luminon Saman's orders.  No living beings were harmed.  But then our best efforts to peacefully demonstrate the error in their ways were met with accusations of theft -- Why would we steal from Panzerwerks? "
StandardPlayer: "Sounds like a powder keg.  No wonder they're rioting."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "Since Saman's tactics were not working, Her Holiness herself came to Trier to try to reach some form of truce.  Now we have no idea where she is."
StandardPlayer: "This might bear investigation..."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "If they would only open their eyes..."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "Panzerwerks refuses to see the light."
M03StreetOrderMan1: "Order will prevail."
M03StreetOrderMan2: "We were only following Saman's directives.  We had no idea it would come to this."
M03StreetOrderMan2: "The Order would not steal from Panzerwerks.  We detest what their industry does to the land."
M03StreetOrderMan2: "I hope Her Holiness is safe..."
StandardPlayer: "What's going on?  The city's under martial law."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "You bring up the pilot beacon, I'll make sure we don't get surprised from behind."
StandardPlayer: "All I have to do is turn on the generator, right?"
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "Right.  It's pretty dark down there -- just emergency lighting -- but if we don't fire up the pilot beacon we won't be able to bring in our flyers."
StandardPlayer: "Roger."
M04ReroutePowerBelow: "Power up the pilot beacon with the basement generator so that your pilot will be able to locate you."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "I got ya covered."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "Watch out -- I bet there are a lot of transgenics loose down there."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "You're my hero, man.  I mean it.  Takes a lot of guts to run solo on a job like this."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "We're good.  Ava gave me the word -- she'll touch down in an hour."
StandardPlayer: "Let's go."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "How was it down there?"
StandardPlayer: "Dark.  Come on."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "We did it."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "I got a little tense up here, but I managed."
M04BaseBuddy_DELETED_ARCH_D_968: "Wonder where they'll send us next."
M04CapturedGray1: "Not the same as the captors.  We can sense it.  Can you free us?"
StandardPlayer: "Are there more of you caged here?"
M04CapturedGray1: "There is but one caged, but we are all together."
StandardPlayer: "Uh...  Anyway... You're right...  I'm not a Templar.  Do you have any idea why they've got you caged up here?"
M04CapturedGray1: "They are filled with hatred.... here to destroy JC and our clan."
StandardPlayer: "What do you know about JC?"
M04CapturedGray1: "He protects us.  We help him.  These intruders came here to find him... sent a woman in. They must be stopped.  If made free, this one will help you stop these intruders. "
M04CapturedGray1: "What do you require?"
Choice: "Stay right here."
Choice: "Follow me."
Choice: "Find your way home."
// add some specific comments on surroundings later
M04CapturedGray1: "So much hate here.  And fear."
M04CapturedGray1: "We meant them no harm, but now we must act."
M04CapturedGray1: "We must return the safeness to this area."
M04CapturedGray1: "We just want to go home."
M04CapturedGray1: "They have put us here with a badness in mind."
M04CapturedGray1: "This one can help deal with the intruders."
M04CapturedGray1: "Free this one."
M04CapturedGray1: "It is good to be returned."
M04CapturedGray1: "Home at last."
M04CapturedGray1: "We will not be separated again."
M04Gray1: "Making tomorrow look like yesterday...."
M04Gray1: "...Versalife..."
M04Gray1: "...evolving engineered creatures to harvest DNA for the modification of humankind to withstand the most extreme conditions..."
M04Gray1: "again... again... again... pain..."
M04Gray2: "The final evolution will be humanmade."

M04Gray1: "Ethical flexibility..."
M04Gray2: "cages.... cages.... cages...."
M04Gray3: "We weaken, we sicken, we fade.  That one needs extra fuel.  Eggs from Project: K1015."
M04Gray4: "They are beneath us.  Project K's rev 24:  not sterile, not like us, they lay eggs and create more.  "
M04Gray3: "Were we not so weak ourselves, we would go for the nutrients ourselves."
M04Gray4: "Must we lose another?"
M04Gray4: "Intruders starve us... and it's not in the experiment log."
M04Gray4: "We will lose that one and again be fewer."
M04Gray4: "Project K1015's were designed differently from us."
M04Gray4: "We benefit from your retrieval of the egg."
M04Gray4: "That one is not yet fully healthy, but no longer in danger."
M04Gray4: "The emptiness in that one subsides, voice returns to us."
StandardPlayer: "What's the problem here?"
M04Gray3: "We are fading.  That one weakens.  Needs nutrients, special, in the eggs."
M04Gray3: "Our light has returned, but that one still weakens.  Needs nutrients, special, in the eggs."
StandardPlayer: "What eggs?"
M04Gray3: "Project K, rev 24, lays their eggs in the passages beneath this level."
M04Gray3: "You mean the Karkians?"
M04Gray3: "We have heard that name for them, yes."
StandardPlayer: "I'll see what I can do."
StandardPlayer: "What's the problem here?"
M04Gray4: "So peaceful when it was just us and JC."
M04Gray4: "That one ails.  "
M04Gray4: "This illness...  We are all so hungry."
M04Gray4: "We thank you for strengthening us with the egg."
M04Gray4: "Our number has not been reduced."
M04Gray4: "That one's life is returning."
M04GrayLeader: "...yet more deviation from the Plan.  Paul was to arrive with the key, bringing the perfected genetic code.  JC was to awaken to greet the new age.  Instead, that woman burst in, followed soon after by the Hateful Ones.  Where is Paul?  What is going on?"
StandardPlayer: "I'll bet that your intruders are Billie Adams, along with some Templar back-up.  After that, I have no idea what you're talking about."
M04GrayLeader: "When JC arrived so many years ago, and the Versalife base fell silent, he took care of us.  In return, we would maintain his habitat while he slept, and await Apostlecorp's masterpiece.  Paul was to accompany the key, but instead two keys have arrived, and Paul remains nowhere."
StandardPlayer: "Wait -- we ARE the keys?  The gate must use some sort of DNA fingerprinting...  And since both Billie and I have Denton genetic code, we were able to use it...  It was never about the training, was it?  They were just perfecting the DNA..."
M04GrayLeader: "And the gate has only brought us destruction -- the Hateful Ones have shut off our only source of nourishment from within the Versalife base, and threaten us if we try to leave this cave to repair it.  We can neither fulfill our duties to JC.  We cannot get to his habitat to awaken him."
StandardPlayer: "I might be able to do something about that..."
StandardPlayer: "What do you mean by "JC's habitat"?"
M04GrayLeader: "When he came to us, he made the earth move according to whim.  He sculpted a habitat for himself, near to the one Versalife built for us."
StandardPlayer: "That's incredible."
M04GrayLeader: "We maintain the habitat for him while he struggles to assimilate the Helios entity, the artificial intelligence with which he joined.  The merger gave him great power, but also threatened him with madness.  He sleeps now to heal."
StandardPlayer: "So you're a part of Versalife?  I thought that corporation folded during the Collapse.  Quite a few people believe they actually caused it, in fact."
M04GrayLeader: "Versalife established an outpost here and created this habitat for us.  We were the next rev of a project launched in Roswell.  We were to be unstoppable ground troops, unfazed by cold or radiation.  In other cases, our DNA was to be harvested to create biomodifications for humans, so that they could survive the aftermath of a nuclear war."
StandardPlayer: "So you're fully engineered transgenics, not aliens.  That was just a cover story for what could've been the most powerful weapon in the Cold War.  But there aren't very many of you -- hardly an army."
M04GrayLeader: "To prevent us from overpowering our masters by sheer numbers, we were created unable to reproduce.  That's why the interruption of our supply of nourishment is so dire -- we are all that remains."
StandardPlayer: "Now I understand."
M04GrayLeader: "Versalife abandoned their base, but JC ensured that our source of nourishment would be uninterrupted.  The Hateful Ones have somehow upset this balance."
StandardPlayer: "I might be able to check out the old base and repair the damage."
StandardPlayer: "Have the Templars -- I mean, the Hateful Ones -- caused any other trouble for you since their arrival?"
M04GrayLeader: "They've set up camp not far from here and prevent us from leaving.  We suspect they are trying to gain entrance to JC's habitat."
StandardPlayer: "I don't know much about your kind, but you seem far more articulate than an ordinary Gray."
M04GrayLeader: "We were not all engineered the same.  Different strains had different purposes -- some are more verbally adept, others made for battle, and others made as leaders.  JC's arrival only amplified these differences.  His presence has changed us all."
M04GrayLeader: "The glow returns and we are nourished once more.  Much thanks for your efforts.  Our kind will now continue"
StandardPlayer: "Glad to see the work paid off."
M04GrayLeader: "So much outside The Plan.  It must be set right."
M04GrayLeader: "The Hateful Ones must be stopped."
M04GrayLeader: "We cannot allow them to prevail."
M04GrayLeader: "We suffer starvation no more."
M04GrayLeader: "We can feel our strength returning."
M04LairGray1: "Thank you for undoing the Hateful Ones' damage."
M04LairGray1: "The other key is already here.  It is time to awaken JC, but we fear she is here to prevent it and to harm him.  You must stop her and you must revive him."
StandardPlayer: "But how?"
M04LairGray1: "Upon the arrival of the key, JC was to be awakened, to welcome the perfected genetic code.  Then he and Paul were to share it with the world. Now, there is much unexpected turmoil, but we will proceed according to the original Plan. "
StandardPlayer: "What needs to be done?"
M04LairGray1: "You must go [directions to power source].  But beware:  the other key has been laying traps."
StandardPlayer: "What kind of traps?"
M04LairGray1: "[logistic info]  Avoid these dangers and awaken JC.  Do not permit her to destroy everything."
StandardPlayer: "What IS this place anyway?"
M04LairGray1: "This is JC's habitat.  He came to Antarctica seeking peace.  In turmoil from the merger with the artificial intelligence, Helios, he constructed this place with his mind, using his new power over nanotech.  The habitat erupted from the landscape, a living technological building, infused with his psyche."
M04LairGray1: "JC must be awakened.  "
M04LairGray1: "The Hateful Ones threaten all that we have worked and waited for."
M04LairGray1: "We cannot allow JC to continue to sleep."
M04LairGray1: "Now that JC is awake, he will put things right."
M04LairGray1: "JC will stop these Hateful Ones, make us safe once more."
M04LairGray1: "The Plan has been carried out."
RescueTemplar: "Rescue the trapped Templar paladin by [accessing the control panel across from his cell]."
M04TrappedTemplar: "You found me!  Hey, where's your suit?  You one of us?"
StandardPlayer: "A Templar?  No."
M04TrappedTemplar: "Who sent YOU?  You look modified."
StandardPlayer: "Maybe I am."
M04TrappedTemplar: "Well, don't think we're all fanatics about that stuff.  You won't see ME taking any mods, but, you know, to each his own.  My unit got sent down here to see if we could find an unlock control for the Denton bunker.  Figures we'd get jumped by a bunch of mutants.  I'm the only one left."
StandardPlayer: "How'd you end up in there?"
M04TrappedTemplar: "One of those monkey-things, saving me for a snack.  They're smarter than they look.  Hey, think you could get me out of here?  There's a [control panel on the far wall]?"
// We probably want to trigger this explicitly with conversation triggers placed on the map.
M04TrappedTemplar: "Is somebody there?  Help!  Help!"
M04TrappedTemplar: "Actually, what happened was that I was running from a karkian.  I pulled the grate shut for protection.  How was I to know it was going to lock behind me?"
M04TrappedTemplar: "I guess factional differences don't matter much down here, where it's us against the mutants."
M04TrappedTemplar: "You aren't gonna leave me here, are you?"
M04TrappedTemplar: "Please!  Open the grating!"
M04TrappedTemplar: "I know you probably didn't want to do that -- but thanks."
StandardPlayer: "No problem."
M04TrappedTemplar: "We have our differences.  Maybe I care a little more about dignity, the dignity of the human body.  But that doesn't mean we can't work together and get out of here."
M04TrappedTemplar: "Now what?"
Choice: "Stay here."
Choice: "Follow me."
M04TrappedTemplar: "You're the boss."
M04TrappedTemplar: "I hope you know what you're doing."
M04TrappedTemplar: "If you think you can get me out of here alive -- okay."
// This bark is currently disabled.  Re-activate when details are known.
M04TrappedTemplar: "[We should add some Nicolette-style barks for the Templar giving the player (false) advice during the escape.  Will depend on map details.]"
// This bark should be launched by a trigger.
M04TrappedTemplar: "Thanks for the help.  I can find my way from here."
// The Templar attacks the player.
M05CairoCryoScientist1: "My guess is that it was a botched infusion.  Justice, if you ask me.  Mother Nature's way of saying, "Don't play with that.""
M05CairoCryoScientist2: "Looks like it was more than a standard infusion.  This IS Paul Denton we're talking about. It appears they designed it as a new breed of nanite, one suitable for the entire human race."
M05CairoCryoScientist1: "Given that it's been two years since they tried to infuse him, I'm guessing the procedure did not go according to plan."
M05CairoCryoScientist2: "The nanites actually began disintegrating him from the inside.  They put him in cryostate so that they could find a cure."
M05CairoCryoScientist1: "When will they learn?  The human organism should not be altered in such ways."
M05CairoCryoScientist2: "That's why we're here -- to learn what we can from this experiment so that we can put a stop to these plans they have for all humankind."
M05CairoCryoScientist1: "Gah.  You're modified.  I can smell it on you.  "
M05CairoCryoScientist1: "Get out of here, you freak."
M05CairoCryoScientist1: "You can't stop the Templars.  There are too many of us."
M05CairoCryoScientist1: "We have gathered the data we need.  Soon we will be able to halt modification entirely."
M05CairoCryoScientist2: "I don't know who -- or what -- you are, but you aren't permitted here."
M05CairoCryoScientist2: "I have work to do.  Leave me."
M05CairoCryoScientist2: "You're interrupting some of the most sacred research in the history of humankind."
M05CairoCryoScientist2: "Purity will prevail.  Be gone."
M05CairoCryoTemplar1: "I saw the guy -- they've got him [location].  All this security for a frozen man?  What kind of threat could he be?"
M05CairoCryoTemplar2: "I heard he's one of their leaders, and they put him into a deep sleep to wait for something.  I don't know what, but it must be pretty important."
M05CairoCryoTemplar1: "These modified freaks don't make any sense.  I think it rots their brains."
M05CairoCryoTemplar2: "Or maybe you just have to be crazy in the first place to let them ruin your body like that."
M05HidingTemplar1: "Purity is just.  We will prevail."
M05HidingTemplar1: "These freaks have no right to corrupt the human race.  They must be stopped."
M05HidingTemplar1: "We have labored long in secret, but the world is now coming to know us and our valiant work."
M05HidingTemplar1: "If people will not listen to reason, we have other ways of making them understand."
M05HidingTemplar2: "They may have stopped Archer, but they cannot stop our quest for Purity.  We must obliterate the Nassif bloodline."
M05HidingTemplar1: "Why this family?"
M05HidingTemplar2: "The Nassif girl was one of the key candidates for nanite infusion at Tarsus.  Her whole family is likely to give itself over to that pollution, so they must be exterminated."
M05HidingTemplar1: "There are no more in Cairo.  They've all been terminated."
M05HidingTemplar2: "Are you certain?  A threat to Purity like this must not be tolerated.  Then we must identify new targets..."
M05HidingTemplar2: "We may have been stopped in Tarsus, but we will terminate these traitors to human Purity, whatever it takes."
M05HidingTemplar2: "We have tried peaceful means, but our message is ignored.  Now we must strive to protect human Purity, even if it means terminating those who would pollute the race."
M05HidingTemplar2: "They're hardly human, after they undergo infusions anyway, so it's not murder that we commit."
M05HidingTemplar2: "Someday humankind will thank us for so vigilantly defending the genome."
M05IlluminatiElite: "We have been assigned the same objectives with respect to Subject Denton."
StandardPlayer: "I don't know about that."
M05IlluminatiElite: "The Templars are holding the subject now.  It must be destroyed.  The plan is bad."
StandardPlayer: ""
M05MosqueTemplar1: "...we've eliminated most of the modded freaks, and captured one of their demented leaders, the illustrious Paul Denton himself."
M05MosqueTemplar2: "If you can call it that.  SSC is a joke compared to our troops, and it wasn't much of a "capture" since he's just a block of ice.  Hope the scientists get what they need out of him so we can get out of here.  "
M05MosqueTemplar1: "What?  Nervous?"
M05MosqueTemplar2: "Nah, just sick of this assignment.  Need some more challenge.  And less sand."
NGResonance: "Hi.  I'm NG Resonance.  What would you like to talk about?"
StandardPlayer: "You must know everybody in the club."
NGResonance: "Let's talk about you."
StandardPlayer: "Tell me about Bud Puckett."
NGResonance: "I like Bud.  He's one of my biggest fans."
// NOTE: This should never play, if the logic is right.  Better safe than sorry, though.
StandardPlayer: "I guess I'm out of questions at the moment."
StandardPlayer: "Lots of guards in here.  Are they really necessary?"
NGResonance: "Every society has rules."
StandardPlayer: "But -- armed guards in a nightclub?"
NGResonance: "No business can prosper without protection against crime."
StandardPlayer: "Know anything about the WTO guards at the bar?"
NGResonance: "The defense of commercial districts has been the key to economic recovery since the Collapse."
StandardPlayer: "I guess you're not a disciple of the Order."
NGResonance: "I love Nature as much as Her Holiness.  But Nature builds and creates.  The Order terrorizes."
StandardPlayer: "What about the VIP area?  What goes on back there?"
NGResonance: "WTO security would like to know the same thing.  They lack evidence for a search warrant."
StandardPlayer: "You know an awful lot about police business."
NGResonance: "Like you said, I talk to everyone.  If you learn what goes on there, please inform me."
StandardPlayer: "I'm Bud Puckett.  Remember me?"
NGResonance: "The chances of you finding a bug in a globally distributed AI construct are ten billion to one."
StandardPlayer: "I like your music."
NGResonance: "I think you're lying."
StandardPlayer: "Hey -- I'm a fan.  You're not supposed to argue with me."
NGResonance: "I'm supposed to make you like me.  You like it when I argue."
Choice: "I checked out the VIP area.  It's a contact point for the Omar, the black market..."
Choice: "I checked out the VIP area.  No big deal.  Just a bunch of suits."
NGResonance: "Thank you.  The authorities will be informed."
StandardPlayer: "Do I get a reward?"
NGResonance: "Rewards can be granted only for information related to a crime."
NGResonance: "As you wish.  One free ticket to any NG Resonance concert, anywhere in the world, keyed to your retinal profile.  Your ticket will be available at the door."
StandardPlayer: "What can you tell me about the VIP area __across from the bar__ ?"
NGResonance: "You're the one who went inside.  You tell me -- I'm curous.  Even the WTO authorities have been excluded, and they lack justification for a search warrant."
// Logic for this convo will be built out when NOTs are added.
NGResonance: "I like talking to my fans.  Come back when you have something else to discuss."
NGResonance: "I'm always right here, whenever you want to chat."
NGResonance: "We will talk again."
NGResonance: "Do tell me if you learn anything about the VIP area."
StandardPlayer: "The WTO and Order are actually two branches of the same organization?"
NicoletteDuclare: "Precisely.   We could never lead humanity as one monolithic force, at least not initially.  The Illuminati have always worked in secret, and the WTO and Order are just two of our present facades, masking our real work."
StandardPlayer: "But people dedicate their lives to these causes, and it turns out they're just your pawns?"
NicoletteDuclare: "Not at all.  We are humankind's servants not their puppeteers.  We knew that human society would not be capable of responding to a single voice, so we engineered these organizations.  With these fronts, we can optimally organize and lead civilization toward our goals."
StandardPlayer: "Saman is a Templar?"
NicoletteDuclare: "Unfortunately, yes.  He has taken the Order's respect for Nature and warped it into fanaticism, and found likeminded individuals to follow his quest for "Purity" -- merely a euphemism for the murder of modified individuals."
StandardPlayer: "Surely the Illuminati can deal with a few crackpots."
NicoletteDuclare: "Do not underestimate the Templars.  Saman has amassed a great deal of support and resources for his cause."
StandardPlayer: "When were you planning on telling the public about the WTO and Order connections?"
NicoletteDuclare: "When the time is right.  Right now the general populace simply isn't ready for this kind of information.  At this stage, we're only telling select individuals, in the higher echelons of each organization."
StandardPlayer: "Then why are you confiding this in me?"
NicoletteDuclare: "Because you're extraordinary, Alex.  We've been watching your progress for a long time, waiting for this moment."
StandardPlayer: "You followers haven't expelled you yet?"
NicoletteDuclare: "We work in secret only because it best serves our purpose.  "
NicoletteDuclare: "In time, humankind will understand and thank us."
NicoletteDuclare: "My family has a long history with the Illuminati.   You might say the same of your bloodlines as well. "
NicoletteDuclare: "In time, it will all become clear."
NicoletteDuclare: "We want to bring humanity into the light."

StandardPlayer: "Are you... Her Holiness?  It's strange seeing you as just another person..."
NicoletteDuclare: "Yes.  I'm just another ordinary human being, like you.  My name is Nicolette Duclare.  "
StandardPlayer: "After being dispatched by the leader of the WTO to rescue you, I guess nothing should be a surprise."
// while Nicolette has been speaking, Donna has walked up and joined the exchange.
DonnaMorgan: "The WTO has vested interests in Her Holiness's welfare, as well as the happenings at this factory.  That's why I was working here undercover, posing as a Panzerwerks executive."
StandardPlayer: "But it's a WTO affiliated factory.  Why would you need to be so covert?  And I understand the need for diplomacy, but it still seems odd to be protecting the leader of your adversaries."
NicoletteDuclare: "There is much you do not know, but our time is short. The WTO and Order are not as they seem...  "
StandardPlayer: "What do you mean?"
NicoletteDuclare: "They are but different faces of the same organization -- the Illuminati, an ancient secret society to which Chad and I both belong.  The WTO and Order are merely the tools we are presently using to elevate humanity to the next level. "
// can we pause with the camera on the player or something like that, like a hesitation here? before donna jumps in?
DonnaMorgan: "I know --  it's overwhelming.  I've dedicated myself to the WTO, only to find out it's just a myth they created. "
StandardPlayer: "If the WTO and Order aren't actually opposing entities, then what's the point of this summit?"
NicoletteDuclare: "The REAL opposition right now comes from the Templars, the militant anti-biomodification group.  The summit was only a cover to justify our public presence in Trier.  Our real goal was to investigate rumors of a Templar splinter cell within the Order, headquartered somewhere nearby. With the help of Agent Morgan, I learned that Luminon Saman was at the heart of this Templar deceit, inciting the riots, and stealing resources away to his hidden compound [at x location]."
StandardPlayer: "So how does it feel?  Your life's work is a phony conflict between business and idealism in the minds of billions of people."
NicoletteDuclare: "Don't be a cynic, young one."
NicoletteDuclare: "Order will prevail.  It always does, whether the cause is mystical or merely secular."
NicoletteDuclare: "Help us put the world back together, Alex."

M05TalkToLeo: "Talk to Leo in the Pequot's coffee shop."
NicoletteDuclare: "JC Denton has a hold on your imagination, perhaps.  Talk to your friend Leo in the Pequod's coffee shop.  See how much he likes enforced modification.  You should recognize that the Omar sect is only a shade of gray different than ApostleCorp."
ChadDumier: "JC Denton has a hold on your imagination, perhaps.  Talk to your friend Leo in the Pequod's coffee shop.  See how much he likes enforced modification.  You should recognize that the Omar sect is only a shade of gray different than ApostleCorp."
Saman: "I need to return in time for the summit."
BillieAdams: "... just a show for the media."
Saman: "I'm not so sure.  Her Holiness sounded sincere when I spoke with her in Germany."
BillieAdams: "A co-dominion with the WTO?  Not in my lifetime."
Saman: "History moves in fits and starts.  Obviously you're too young to remember pre-Collapse society.  I watched two centuries of progress vanish during two minutes on the evening news."
BillieAdams: "Destruction -- that's easy.  But Her Holiness and Chairman Dumier think they can reunify the planet with a simple decree."
Saman: "The faithless are easy to manipulate politically, and, remember, the faithless are the majority.  We should not forget de Toqueville's insight.  If a man does not submit to faith, he will desire a firm, tyrranical shape for society."
BillieAdams: "It's not too late to reform the Church."
Saman: "No, but the danger is great."
// A stub convo for a 3-way with Billie.  Most of the dialogue is in M02BillieBriefing.
StandardPlayer: "I don't believe we've met."
Saman: "[Bishop] Saman from the German [Diocese].  My pleasure.  I was hoping one of Billie's former classmates would show up."
// A series of optional cinematics with Senator Palpatine.
StandardPlayer: "You disagree with the way High Augur Chen is doing things?"
Saman: "Amicably, to be sure.  It's mostly a doctrinal dispute that stands between us."
StandardPlayer: "What about Her Holiness?  Doesn't she decide what the Church stands for?"
Saman: "Her Holiness and I amicably disagree also.  My Shard in Germany has a profound respect for the founding doctrines of the Order.  What we don't understand are these recent revisions and reversals that seem to excuse the resurgence -- through the WTO -- of blind commercial interests, inhumane science, and callousness toward all living things."
StandardPlayer: "You sound pretty upset."
Saman: "My seekers and I are most loyal to the doctrines laid down by Her Holiness after the Collapse.  What we propose, very openly, is a greater purity of interpretation of these founding principles."
StandardPlayer: "What brings the German [Bishop] to Cairo?"
Saman: "Let's just say that if this investigation does indeed uncover technologies for the modification and co-mmodification of human bodies, I don't entirely trust the current leadership to destroy them."
StandardPlayer: "What are you going to do?"
Saman: "Report the truth to my seekers -- to true seekers everywhere.  What more would be necessary?"
Saman: "You want to hear more.  Good.  Let me explain how the Order should rebuild post-Collapse society."
StandardPlayer: "I'm listening."
Saman: "Her Holiness was correct, in the beginning, to describe the problem as one of human growth.  Human growth was impeded in the old society.  "Almost all men carry out the purposes of other men, rather than their own, making them feel impotent in action."  Bertrand Russel."
StandardPlayer: "So?"
Saman: "So?!  Well, Russel was right!  People are creatures of impulse.  The role of political philosophy should be to control the destructive impulses with constructive, creative ones.  Each citizen should be free to grow creatively."
StandardPlayer: "I thought the Order was a spiritual movement."
Saman: "A spiritual movement about reconstituting the self, improving the self, finding balance with the world.  Her Holiness knows that no balance is possible if the old world returns: global capital, teratogenic science, universal wage-slavery..."
Saman: "Have you ever considered what is unique about post-Collapse society?  Hmmm?  Trans-territoriality.  Most political entities coexist on a global scale.  The WTO has its enclaves, we have our settlements and churches."
StandardPlayer: "You're not the first global church."
Saman: "The point is that human beings have the makings of a new basis for civilization.  Communication grids came back up before industry, so we have many global associations incapable of siezing very much territory."
StandardPlayer: "It's only a matter of time."
Saman: "Not necessarily.  Again, Bertrand Russel observed almost two centuries ago that governmental units need not be territorial."
StandardPlayer: "If the Order isn't territorial, why do you maintain an armed guard?"
Saman: "I'm thinking ahead a few decades.  Military power will never vanish.  What we hope is that it can be separated from civil power."
StandardPlayer: "You've got pretty big plans for a [Bishop]."
Saman: "Before she started cozying up to the WTO, Her Holiness agreed -- a global police force would end territorial wars, and small communities could live in harmony, the way individuals used to live within the boudaries of a country and do today within the walls of an enclave. "
StandardPlayer: "But whose police force?"
Saman: "Not important, so long as it knows how to keep Order..."
Saman: "Seek the way, my friend."
Saman: "Enough for now.  Please leave me with my thoughts."
Saman: "If you go outside, try to breathe through your nose."
Saman: "My paladins. today you will be tested.  All guards will be doubled and remain on the highest state of alert.  We are no longer invisible to our enemies, and they are closing in.  Protect the factory at all costs, for only by empowering each Soldier of Purity with exoskeletal armor can we be assured of battlefield superiority."
Saman: "Captain, I'm leaving again.  The defense of the factory is in your hands.  If you can hold the facility, and if my mission is a success, we should be ready to begin our offensive against WTO enclaves by the end of the month."
// Try to make this *mandatory* on the way *out*.
Saman: "You aren't so special anymore, Denton.  Maybe you remember Billie Adams."
StandardPlayer: "Luminon Saman -- where are you?"
Saman: "She's as much Denton as you, thanks to the ApostleCorp infusions.  I sent her through the teleporter to locate and kill JC."
StandardPlayer: "And I'm right behind her."
Saman: "(laugh)  About three hours behind, if my clock is right.  I now know where the teleporter takes its passengers.  My people are closing in on JC's sanctuary this very second."
StandardPlayer: "Your enemies know who you are.  You can't hide for long."
Saman: "Little do you realize how vulnerable they will be if I can use JC's power against them.  I can remain hidden long enough for Billie to complete her assignment.  Then it will be your turn to hide."
SidBlack: "Queer duds, mate.  You SSC?"
SidBlack: "Queer duds, missy.  You SSC?"
StandardPlayer: "Just checking the place out."
SidBlack: "Sid Black.  Call me Sid.  Best jet-jockey in the Northern Hemisphere.  Know someone who needs a flyer?  All they've got to do is bail me out."
SidBlack: "Sid Black.  Call me Sid.  Best jet-jockey in the Northern Hemisphere.  Know someone who needs a flyer?  Looks like I'm back on the job as soon as we get out of here."
StandardPlayer: "A jet pilot.  What are you doing here?"
SidBlack: "Sod-all.  What does it look like?"
StandardPlayer: "Busted for smuggling?"
SidBlack: "That's what I'll tell the ladies.  Actually, terminal fees.  Pure stinkin' bosh in my opinion.  I drop my birds on the curb.  Never used a WTO terminal in my life."
SidBlack: "Pirating.  I'm an air pirate.  I fly a Harrier GR-7.  Hit my birds on the curb.  They don't even see me comin'."
StandardPlayer: "I never heard of air pirates."
SidBlack: "Well, you're lookin' at one.  Been locked up for kidnapping, public endangerment, aggravated this and aggravated that.  Better watch out -- I'm the real thing."
StandardPlayer: "I happen to need a pilot.  Interested?"
SidBlack: "Happen I don't have a choice, do I?  Get me out and you'll be the first bird in line."
SidBlack: "Happen I don't have a choice, do I?  Get me out and you'll be the first bird in line.  I never turn away a pretty lady who wants to fly."
StandardPlayer: "I talked to your girlfriend at the Mercenary Bar.  She says hi."
SidBlack: "Right.  Sally.  Lovely girl."
StandardPlayer: "She said her name was Sandy."
SidBlack: "Sandy!  Too right, too right... Good kid.  Kind of a faffer to live with, though."
StandardPlayer: "So you're in here because of an unpaid fine."
SidBlack: "Terminal fees.  Pure stinkin' bosh in my opinion.  I drop my birds on the curb.  Never used a WTO terminal in my life."
SidBlack: "Terminal fees.  Pure stinkin' bosh in my opinion.  They nabbed me cuz they know I'm an air pirate.  I fly a Harrier GR-7.  Hit my birds on the curb.  They don't even see me comin'."
SidBlack: "Won't be the first time I hopped the clink."
SidBlack: "Better not arse this up..."
SidBlack: "Can't wait to get back to my jet..."
// This convo lets the player order Sid to stay put or bot during the escape.
SidBlack: "Well done, scally.  How do we play it from here?"
SidBlack: "Well done, missy.  How do we play it from here?"
SidBlack: "Time to rag it outta here."
SidBlack: "Yeah?"
Choice: "Wait here.  I'll handle the guards."
Choice: "Stay close."
SidBlack: "Aye, aye.  Aren't gonna leave the old bean -- are ya?"
SidBlack: "On your wing, scally."
SidBlack: "On your wing, missy."
SidBlack: "Right-O!"
SidBlack: "You sure about this?"
SidBlack: "You set me strait, old chap.  Just being a good Samaritan?"
SidBlack: "You set me strait, miss.  Just being a good Samaritan?"
StandardPlayer: "Let's just say I'm a nice guy."
StandardPlayer: "Your girlfriend in Old Seattle sent me."
StandardPlayer: "I need a pilot."
SidBlack: "Well, I hand you my gratitude.  Cheers."
SidBlack: "All right, then.  Cheers."
StandardPlayer: "Is that all the thanks I get?"
SidBlack: "Have to get to my jet.  It's been a tad repossessed in the Merc. District.  Once I'm airborne, though, look me up.  I'll cut you a deal on airfare."
StandardPlayer: "I just broke you out of jail."
StandardPlayer: "I just got you out of jail."
SidBlack: "But not out of debt.  I have to at least break even if I'm gonna burn fuel."
StandardPlayer: "What do you charge?"
StandardPlayer: "How much to take me to Mako Ballistics north of town?"
SidBlack: "A thousand credits for local hops.  That rate includes covert placement, curb drops, hostile pickups.  Other flyers charge less but ARE less, a bunch of sods, in my opinion.  Just meet me at my jet at the waterfront pad in the Merc. District... once I work out a few things."
StandardPlayer: "Your jet was repossessed?  You don't expect me to rescue your jet, too, do you?"
SidBlack: "Happen it depends on how big a hurry you're in.  I lost a load of energy cells headed for the Omar.  Now the Merc diva, Sophia Sak, is keeping my jet to recover costs.  Either I pay up or, better, get someone to take out her guards so I can steal that honey out from under her nose."
StandardPlayer: "I hope you fly better than you manage your finances."
SidBlack: "I may get in trouble, but I get out, too.  Like most of my passengers."
// GOAL: Access Sid's jet at the waterfront landing pad in the Merc District.  Either pay the fine he owes Sophia Sak or eliminate Sak's security force.
StandardPlayer: "I already took care of the people holding your jet."
StandardPlayer: "I already paid your debt to Miss Sak."
SidBlack: "Brilliant.  Cracking good work.  Then I'll see you at the landing pad whenever you're ready to fly."
SidBlack: "This is the WTO's definition of free enterprise: lock up the competition."
SidBlack: "I haven't ruled out the possibility that Suzy turned me in.  My own girl, down in old Seattle."
SidBlack: "Spring me, and I'll make it worth your while."
SidBlack: "Hope they haven't sold my ride for scrap yet."
SidBlack: "No worries if you want to deal with Miss Sak for me.  My lips are sealed."
SidBlack: "See you in the Old Town."
SidBlack: "Wonder what Cindy's been up to."
SidBlack: "Can't wait to get out of this town."
M01MercBarSidsWoman: "But what about the apartment?"
SidBlack: "I already picked up my gear."
M01MercBarSidsWoman: "I mean, what about the rent?  What about living together?  You made me move to a bigger place, and now I'm stuck with the bill."
SidBlack: "Hey, I come through this town all the time.  It's my base, my home -- you know that, Cindy."
// Hysterical.
M01MercBarSidsWoman: "Sandy!"
SidBlack: "Sandy.  Right, but the captain's gotta sail if he wants to keep his ship."
StandardPlayer: "You owe me a flight."
SidBlack: "Too right, scally.  My pleasure.  Only -- there's a matter of my debt to Miss Sak.  She has my flyer at her landing pad by the bay."
SidBlack: "Too right, sweets.  My pleasure.  Only -- there's a matter of my debt to Miss Sak.  She has my flyer at her landing pad by the bay."
StandardPlayer: "I have better things to do with my money than pay other people's debts."
SidBlack: "You did it before... (laughs)  Seriously -- I'm up the swanny until I get those mercs away from my jet.  You don't have to pay 'em, necessarily.  Maybe you could arrange an accident, know what I mean?  You look like the type."
SidBlack: "You did it before... (laughs)  Seriously -- I'm up the swanny until I get those mercs away from my jet.  You don't have to pay 'em, necessarily.  Maybe give the guard a wink and a smile, eh?  If I was a hired gun, I'd make a bollocks of my commission for a girl like you."
SidBlack: "Well, I'm up the swanny until I get those mercs away from my jet.  You don't have to pay 'em, necessarily.  Maybe you could arrange an accident, know what I mean?  You weren't afraid of a jail full of SSC."
SidBlack: "Well, I'm up the swanny until I get those mercs away from my jet.  You don't have to pay 'em, necessarily.  Maybe give the guard a wink and a smile, eh?  If I was a hired gun, I'd make a bollocks of my commission for a girl like you."
SidBlack: "Sorry, old boy.  I can't do much until I get my wings back."
SidBlack: "Sorry, plum cake.  I can't do much until I get my wings back."
SidBlack: "Just sayin' goodbye to my girl.  Always chokes me up a little."
SidBlack: "Chicks never listen when I say I run freight."
SidBlack: "Gotta be mobile to make a living in this trade."
SidBlack: "My luck's about dried up in this town, if you want to know the truth."
SidBlack: "Lemme know how it goes with Miss Sak."
SidBlack: "See ya later."
SidBlack: "Hey, Cindy's standin' right there.  You wanna trade life stories, let's wait 'til we're airborne, know what I mean?"
SidBlack: "My bird!"
SidBlack: "One scratch on my sweetie and this whole pad gets a taste of a Firearrow missile."
SidBlack: "Let's check her out."
SidBlack: "Where to?  It'll only cost you a thousand creds."
StandardPlayer: "Just hang around a little while -- I don't know where I want to go yet."
Choice: "Here's the money.  Take me to the Mako Ballistics facility just north of the city."
Choice: "Wait here.  I'll be back."
SidBlack: "Hop in."
// Trigger exit cinematic.
SidBlack: "Squeeze on in here, sweetie."
// Trigger exit cinematic.
SidBlack: "Whatever you say -- I owe ya."
SidBlack: "How was it?  Smooth ride?"
StandardPlayer: "No complaints."
SidBlack: "Always drop my birds on the curb, eh?  Check it out.  New Cairo.  I even had cash to pick up the terminal fee this time."
StandardPlayer: "Good.  I don't want to have to get you out of jail again."
SidBlack: "Anywhere else you want to go, I'll be right here.  [1500] creds."
StandardPlayer: "Sid Black.  How'd you end up in Cairo?"
SidBlack: "Had to get out of town pretty fast.  Fortunately, this guy Leo needed a ride and could give me some fuel money."
StandardPlayer: "Leo Kowalski?  I went to school with that guy -- briefly."
SidBlack: "A good kid.  Kind of a chip on his shoulder, though.  What about you?  Your eyes look a little bloodshot.  Been out in the dust?  You should've hired a better flyer.  Someone like me coulda dropped you in the city."
StandardPlayer: "Maybe next time."
SidBlack: "Wherever you want to go.  I'll be right here.  [1500] creds."
SidBlack: "Sid Black.  Harrier pilot.  Best flyer in the Western Hemisphere.  I drop my birds on the curb.  Spread it around.  I'm looking for another contract to get out of this town."
StandardPlayer: "What's wrong with New Cairo?"
SidBlack: "Nothing, but I've got a girl waiting for me in Trier, Germany.  Protester-type.  She's there for the summit."
StandardPlayer: "Which side?  Order or WTO?"
SidBlack: "Mmmm.  Crikey, I didn't ask.  As soon as women start talking politics, I go blank.  But I wouldn't mind raising some fuel money so I could see her again.  [1500] creds.  I'll take you wherever you need to go."
// Maybe filter these based on M02SidDiscussedTrierGirl when we get the tech.
Choice: "1500?  No problem.  I need a lift to Trier, Germany."
Choice: "I don't have that kind of cash."
Choice: "I'll let you know."
SidBlack: "Lovely.  See you at the terminal."
SidBlack: "Lovely.  See you at the terminal, mate."
StandardPlayer: "Cool."
SidBlack: "This is blooming grreat!  Drop you in town, and me and Sandy get to have our holiday."
StandardPlayer: "Quite a coincidence."
SidBlack: "Guess Trier's the party town right now -- globablization secret meetings, riots, concerts -- I heard NG is going to play."
StandardPlayer: "You're an NG Resonance fan?"
SidBlack: "Am I an NG Resonance fan?  (laughs uncontrollably)  Catch you at the terminal, eh?"
SidBlack: "Guess you're cracking out of luck, then."
SidBlack: "Need a lift?  [1500] creds."
StandardPlayer: "Not yet.  I'll let you know."
SidBlack: "I could use a little more cash so I can get out of this town in a certain amount of style."
SidBlack: "Air Terminal, [Tier Four].  See ya there."
SidBlack: "Hop in, scally."
SidBlack: "Hop in."
Choice: "Let's go."
Choice: "Just a minute.  I'm not quite ready."
SidBlack: "Any special instructions for the drop?  Strafing run?  Hostile insertion?  Drop you near a pub?  You're payin' for quality, remember."
StandardPlayer: "Just get me close to downtown.  I'm looking for someone."
SidBlack: "Anybody I know?  I spent a right many days in that town with Cindy and her mangy friends."
SidBlack: "Anybody I know?  I spent a right many days in that town with this girl Cindy and her mangy friends."
StandardPlayer: "I don't think so.  Just get me there."
SidBlack: "Fine by me.  I never turn down a tourist hop.  I have my own situation in Trier, anyway."
// Trigger exit cinematic.
TracerTong: "You found me, Alex."
StandardPlayer: "How do you know who I am?"
TracerTong: "Your name is Alex Denton.  You were created in a laboratory at Area 51, the third Denton sibling.  I took over the research after JC Denton destroyed Majestic-12."
StandardPlayer: "So what about this gateway, the teleporter to JC."
StandardPlayer: "Your'e Tracer Tong."
TracerTong: "You must have come looking for the Black Gate laboratory and the gateway to JC.  Unfortunately, the Templars have taken the facility."
StandardPlayer: "Gateway?"
TracerTong: "Yes, the Black Gate was rebuilt by JC as a portal to his secret base in Antarctica.  Only a Denton or one of our modified operatives can go through.  It's lucky you found me here."
StandardPlayer: "You're quick to trust me."
TracerTong: "Our enemies already know about the gate.  They will be using you to get access to JC."
StandardPlayer: "The WTO and the Order."
TracerTong: "In a manner of speaking.  It's time for me to send Mr. Dumier and Her Holiness a message.  Go to the constable's office and tell the WTO leader that we have a common enemy now, and that if he looks a little deeper at the Panzerwerks riots he will see the hand of the Templars."
StandardPlayer: "What if I tell them you're here?"
TracerTong: "I'm not the one who needs to be afraid anymore.  You, Klara, Billie, and Leo are the only ones who can use the Gate to discover JC's exact location.  Nothing else matters now.  JC is the only one who can enact universal distribution of our technology."
StandardPlayer: "Maybe I'll go through the gate and see what JC has to say about all this."
TracerTong: "The Templars have recoded the security lock.  They, too, are looking to recruit one of our operatives to get at JC.  Neither the Order, nor the WTO, nor you or I will have any chance to reach JC until we discover where this Templar army has based itself -- and who is the keeper of the new code.  Go to Mr. Dumier.  The place to start is Panzerwerks."
TracerTong: "Alex Denton.  You found our laboratory."
StandardPlayer: "Are you Tong?"
TracerTong: "As you can see, our operation is nearly destroyed.  Yes, I'm Tracer Tong.  I was in charge of research for ApostleCorp."
StandardPlayer: "You called me Denton."
TracerTong: "I have a lot to explain.  Meet me at the [_________] Tavern down the street.  You are one of the original Denton prototypes -- yes.  You will be able to use the Black Gate teleporter to contact JC -- but not until we have the new access codes.  The Templars recoded the security lock."
TracerTong: "Whether someone wants to destroy the technology, control it, or release it to the whole population, JC is the key.  Several powerful factions are looking for his sanctuary."
TracerTong: "During the Collapse, JC had little choice other than exile.  The merger with the Helios AI was unstable.  He needed a safe place to retire while we developed a more compatible biomod architecture."
TracerTong: "Go to the Constable's office.  Mr. Dumier will teach you more about our enemies than I can."
TracerTong: "Do what Mr. Dumier asks.  He is in a position to help you track down the Templars, moreso than I am."
StandardPlayer: "I rescued Her Holiness.  Turns out she's Nicolette DuClare -- an Illuminatus."
TracerTong: "Now you see the danger we face.  The Illuminati have been very successful at re-shaping the post-Collapse world.  Control of our technology would allow them to create a handpicked ruling elite."
StandardPlayer: "How can they simultaneously support the ideals of the Order and the commercialism of the WTO?"
TracerTong: "The Illuminati have always sought just one thing: centralization.  Centralization of wealth, power, and ideology.  The implementation details are unimportant."
StandardPlayer: "So they centralize wealth with the WTO and ideology with the Order.  What about power?"
TracerTong: "That they hope to get from us."
TracerTong: "The time is coming when you will have to choose sides, Alex."
TracerTong: "Be careful of the other trainees.  They won't necessarily see things the way you do."
TracerTong: "Don't delay -- go to the Templar compound and find the code to unlock the teleporter."
// We should make this MANDATORY, possibly as a hologram at the Black Gate but also -- if the player goes to the Tavern first -- as a normal cinematic.
TracerTong: "When you go to Antarctica and find JC, remember what hangs in the balance.  I haven't told you just how powerful JC has become."
StandardPlayer: "One of the other trainees, Billie Adams, has already gone through the gate."
TracerTong: "She has signed her soul over to the Luddites, the haters of technology.  You will have to protect JC, or she might plunge the world into another Dark Age."
StandardPlayer: "I thought you said JC was powerful."
TracerTong: "He is, but the merger with the Helios AI has been problematic.  He has fallen into a state of near-coma and will be vulnerable until you or one of the others can revive him."
StandardPlayer: "How do I do that?"
TracerTong: "The nanite infusions that make up your biomods.  We have resolved all neural integration issues.  By transferring your architecture to JC, you will complete his interface to the AI and bring him out of the coma.  This is a job we intended for Paul, but now it falls on your shoulders."
StandardPlayer: "Paul Denton?"
TracerTong: "He, too, is helpless and in need of our new systems.  We thought we had the infusions perfected three years ago, but his body rejected them, violently.  He had to be cryogenically frozen until we could finish the design."
StandardPlayer: "The leader of the Cairo facility... captured by the Templars."
TracerTong: "Exactly.  JC will tell you more.  Good luck."
TracerTong: "I never imagined that all four of our facilities would be compromised at once."
TracerTong: "The survival of ApostleCorp -- and JC's hope for society -- depend on what you do in Antarctica."
TracerTong: "You better go."
HerHolinessHolo: "Convergence is possible, my seekers.  The Chairman and I have outlined a program to bring our systems into agreement.  Poverty is not a prerequisite for fulfillment, nor is amorality a prerequisite for prosperity.  Together, in peace.  This is the way."
