I've got a great big ol' digger machine down in my mine. Problem is that the control chip for it don't work any more. I need a new one if I want to expand my operations.

Detailed walkthroughEdit

Talk around town. You'll find out that there are two mine owners interested in the same thing: getting an excavator chip from an abandoned piece of equipment. Each mine owner offers the same reward: $1000. Your only tough decision is deciding the future of Redding, as whoever gets the chip will inevitably advance their own agenda.

There are two chips to be found in the mine, both on the lowest level with the toughest wanamingos. You can get one from the excavator, and the other is on the ground to the northeast, next to one of the machines. You can only sell one of them.

Altough there are 2 chips, the Chosen One can give only one chip (the other will serve no purpose).
