1MS17_050_IntroDan0008B3C0{Pit bull detective} A caravan came a few days back. Worked for Old Man Stockton. You saw them, right?DanIntroPartner: I already told you: I don't recollect. We get a lot of traffic.A1a
20008B3BEDanIntroPartner: I already told you: I don't recollect. We get a lot of traffic.{Pit bull questioning} This isn't Diamond City. A caravan of five comes through, you'd remember.DanIntroPartner: Then they must not have come through. Say, wouldn't you rather have a lemonade?A1a
30008B3BCDanIntroPartner: Then they must not have come through. Say, wouldn't you rather have a lemonade?{Irritated} My job here isn't drinking lemonade. I know for a fact they came here. Why the brush off?DanIntroPartner: I want to help, mister, but I don't really recollect.A1a
40008B3B8DanIntroPartner: I want to help, mister, but I don't really recollect.{Annoyed} Mark my words, I'll get to the bottom of this.A1a
5MS17_175a_Dan_Intro000A7D10{Curious - holding off irritation / Irritated} You from around here? God, I hope not. I've had enough of these hicks.Player Default: Sure, I'm from Covenant.A
60005374FPlayer Default: You have a problem with the people here?{Irritated / Irritated} All the fake smiles and fancy talking puts me on edge. The sooner I'm out of here the better.HonestDan: You know anything about Stockton's caravan?Y1a
70005374EPlayer Default: You? You're from Covenant? Yeah, and I'm the mayor of Diamond City.{Said carefully - monitoring the PC's response super carefully} You know anything about Stockton's caravan?Player Default: Sure, I know about... Who was that again?A1a
800053752Player Default: Sure, I'm from Covenant.{Annoyed, sarcastic / Irritated} You? You're from Covenant? Yeah, and I'm the mayor of Diamond City.HonestDan: You know anything about Stockton's caravan?A1a
900053751Player Default: No, I'm just passing through.{Irritated at the town / Irritated} My advice is pass through sooner than later.HonestDan: You know anything about Stockton's caravan?B1a
1000053750Player Default: What's it to you?{A little defensive} Just doing my job.HonestDan: You know anything about Stockton's caravan?X1a
1100053749Player Default: You're as bad as the rest of these idiots.{All business, some empathy for the dead people} I signed on with Old Man Stockton to find his lost caravan. What's left of it is just outside of town.A1a
12{All business} Their last stop was here so I've trying to put together the story. But I keep getting the run around.HonestDan: Got a proposal for you. Help me find Stockton's people and we split the reward. At least one survivor walked out of that massacre.A1b
1300053740HonestDan: Their last stop was here so I've trying to put together the story. But I keep getting the run around.{Seems like he's offering a fair deal - maybe a touch of caution on his side} Got a proposal for you. Help me find Stockton's people and we split the reward. At least one survivor walked out of that massacre.A1a
14{Grim, pride / Confident} And I intend to make good on my contract.Player Default: Sounds fair. I'm in.A1b
1500053729Player Default: Sounds fair. I'm in.{he's handing the player a list} Here's all I got on the caravan.HonestDan: I don't got proof, but Covenant's involved. Somehow. I'll keep poking around. But let me know if you find anything.A1a
1600053728Player Default: I'm not working with you.The offer's open if you change your mind.HonestDan: I don't got proof, but Covenant's involved. Somehow. I'll keep poking around. But let me know if you find anything.B1a
1700053727Player Default: If I help you I want something up front.{Grudging} If I have your word you'll help, I'll chip in 50 caps now. That's above and beyond the deal.Player Default: Sounds fair. I'm in.X1a
18Player Default: If I help you I want something up front.{A little annoyed} I'm offering an equal stake and considering the work I've already put in, I figure that's generous. You in or not?Player Default: Sounds fair. I'm in.X2a
1900053726Player Default: Who are we looking for?{grim} The big one is Stockton's daughter, Amelia. I didn't find any bodies of the feminine persuasion. So there's hope.Y1a
20{A little greedy here, but mostly wants to do the right thing} If we find her, Stockton's offering a heap of caps.Player Default: Sounds fair. I'm in.Y1b
2100053725Player Default: Here's all I got on the caravan.{A little frustrated - emphasize "Somehow" / Suspicious} I don't got proof, but Covenant's involved. Somehow. I'll keep poking around. But let me know if you find anything.A1a
2200053724Player Default: Sure, I know about... Who was that again?{Irritated, muttering almost to himself / Irritated} You're as bad as the rest of these idiots.HonestDan: I signed on with Old Man Stockton to find his lost caravan. What's left of it is just outside of town.A1a
2300053723Player Default: No, I can't say that I do.{Sigh at the beginning, struck out again / Irritated} I just can't catch a break.HonestDan: I signed on with Old Man Stockton to find his lost caravan. What's left of it is just outside of town.B1a
2400053722Player Default: A caravan? I'm not really the trader type.{No nonsense} Well, this isn't about trade.HonestDan: I signed on with Old Man Stockton to find his lost caravan. What's left of it is just outside of town.X1a
25MS17_175b_DanInvestigate000A7D10{Frustrated / Irritated} This whole place has got me on edge. I hope you found something on the caravan.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.A
26000ED448Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.{Emphasize "one thing" - he's caught them in a lie, now he's being persistent} I got one thing. They deny up and down that Stockton's men ever came here. But they most certainly did.A1a
27{Stubborn} There's no reason to bald face lie to me if they're not hiding something. I'll keep poking around.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.A1b
28Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.{Determined} No. I still have no proof.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.A2a
29000ED446Player Default: So, what's the Institute?{*grunt* before saying the line} You must be new around here. Synths are synthetic people made by the Institute.X2a
30Real advanced machines. Might as well be human because no one can tell the difference between them and us.X2b
31Everyone in the Commonwealth is afraid of synths, and the Institute... but come to mention it...X2c
32I've been here a long while, and nobody's even breathed a word about them. That is odd.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.X2d
33Player Default: So, what's the Institute?{Besides that advice, he's clueless} They keep the barracks locked up tight. Find a way in and I'm sure you'll turn up something. But leads could be anywhere, really.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.X3a
34000ED445Player Default: I found a map that shows some sort of Compound nearby.{Grim} No. If Covenant doesn't pan out then I don't know where to start. I'll cross that road if I have to.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.Y1a
35000ED440Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.{Enthusiastic - then thinking aloud} Great, now we just need to find it. If anyone would know where this Compound is it'd be Jacob. He runs this town.A1a
36{Thinking aloud, then offering help} But he doesn't have the best memory. I saw him once reading a slip of paper while entering his password. Maybe you can find that?Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.A1b
37Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.{Insistent} We need to find out where the Compound is. My best guess is it's on Jacob's terminal.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.A2a
38000ED43EPlayer Default: So, what's the Institute?{Thinking aloud, considering} Hmm. Now that you mention it... people are always gabbing about synths. Or the Institute.X1a
39{Second guessing himself} But here... not one word. But, hell, this whole place is a bucket full of strange.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.X1b
40000ED43DPlayer Default: I found a map that shows some sort of Compound nearby.{Curious, thinks this is important} Huh. Not much to go on. I'll see if I can figure out anything about this... Compound.Player Default: I found out about a Compound. The caravan survivors may be there.Y1a
41MS17_300_Dan_Follows000A7D10{Hopeful / Question} You find out anything about the caravan?Player Default: They took the survivors to a Compound.A
4200054AE7Player Default: They took the survivors to a Compound.{Pleased, eager / Happy} Then we're in business. I'll meet you there and we'll rescue ourselves some caravan hands.Player Default: That's fair. They're at some compound nearby.A1a
4300054AE6Player Default: No. Still looking.{Annoyed at himself} Then I guess we both keep digging.Player Default: That's fair. They're at some compound nearby.B1a
4400054AE5Player Default: Maybe I found out something.{Firm, a little annoyed (he's unsure what the player's up to) / Irritated} You bargaining with me? We work as equal partners or not at all.Player Default: That's fair. They're at some compound nearby.X1a
4500054AE4Player Default: People here are nervous about synths. What's a synth?{Annoyed with himself} Not a lot. Everyone's got their eye on me. But I'll keep trying.Player Default: They took the survivors to a Compound.Y3a
4600054ADFPlayer Default: That's fair. They're at some compound nearby.{Appreciative} That's what I like to hear.HonestDan: We're in business. I'll meet you there and we'll rescue ourselves some caravan hands.A1a
4700054ADEPlayer Default: No deal.{Annoyed, competitive / Irritated} We'll see who finds those caravan hands first, then.HonestDan: We're in business. I'll meet you there and we'll rescue ourselves some caravan hands.B1a
4800054ADCPlayer Default: You won't sweeten the pot?{Firm, annoyed / Irritated} Not interested. If you won't honor our deal then I have no use for you.Player Default: That's fair. They're at some compound nearby.Y1a
4900054ADBHonestDan: That's what I like to hear.{Eager} We're in business. I'll meet you there and we'll rescue ourselves some caravan hands.A1a
50MS17_315_MannyEscort0007C768GuardManny: Blythe. Hey Blythe!{Loud stage whisper to the player - Shocked, spoiling to kick their ass} Torture? They're sick. Just give me the signal.Blythe: Yes. What is it, Manny?A1a
51MS17_330_DanComment000F3679{Grim, annoyed (with himself, mainly)} They knew we were coming. Must've tripped some sort of sensor. I bet you 50 caps there's a lot more where they came from.A1a
52000F3678{Perplexed, searching} No sign of the Caravan yet. They got to be holding them someplace. What the hell are they doing here, any way?A1a
53000F3677{Almost muttering to himself, on high alert} Looks like they repurposed some old world sewers. I don't like the sight lines here. Plenty of opportunities for an ambush.A1a
54000F3676{Considering} Some sort of bridge. Must be another way around.A1a
55000F3675{Angry} So they gather people up. Torture them. And all for the SAFE Test? The sick bastards need to be put down.HonestDan: Cell's empty. Dammit.A1a
56000F3671HonestDan: So they gather people up. Torture them. And all for the SAFE Test? The sick bastards need to be put down.{Sighing, then angry} Cell's empty. Dammit.A1a
57000F3674{On a mission, thinking on his feet} Meeting room. Great. They got to have more holding cells somewhere. I feel it in my gut. Stockton's people were here.A1a
58000F3673{Grim, expecting a fire fight} Got a clearing up ahead. I got your 6. Who knows where more of the bastards will pop up.A1a
59000F3672{Pointing something out, hoping the player is tech savvy} Turret control terminal over there. I don't suppose you're good with those things?A1a
60MS17_400_Chambers000786BEDoctorChambers: I will make you a deal. I pay you handsomely. And you let me dispose of our last remaining synth test subject, Amelia Stockton. Then I can continue my work.{Angry at Chambers / Irritated} I've had my fill of crazy on this contract. No deal.DoctorChambers: Fortunate for me, I wasn't talking to you.A1a
61000786BCDoctorChambers: Fortunate for me, I wasn't talking to you.{Doesn't think the player will do it - but steel in tone / Angry} You side with this nut job and we're going to have a serious, deadly, problem.Player Default: Continue your work, then.A1a
62000786B7Player Default: Are you threatening me, Dan?I have myself a code. That's not always good on my wallet, but it helps me sleep at night.Y1a
63I took this contract and I will honor it. Even if I have to kill you to do it.Player Default: Continue your work, then.Y1b
64MS17_400b_ChambersPeacefulEnding000EEC1DDoctorChambers: Let us continue our work and we will pay you the bounty you would be giving up. But we keep Stockton's synth.{Firm, angry - he's totally down with shooting her / Irritated} Like hell I will. I made a deal with Old Man Stockton. And I plan on making good.DoctorChambers: Does Mr. Dan speak for you, as well? Or are you willing to listen to reason?A1a
650007C76FPlayer Default: I'll take the deal.{Grim - said before attacking} I wish you hadn't said that.DoctorChambers: Excellent. You'll find that Covenant has more to offer since we've come to this understanding. Goodbye.A1a
66MS17_500_Dan_Offer000A7D10{Pleased / Friendly} So Stockton gets his daughter and we get paid. Not a bad day.Player Default: It was good working with you.A
6700039F6CPlayer Default: It was good working with you.{Respect / Friendly} Likewise. Glad you were on my side.HonestDan: Here's your cut of the reward. I'll get my half from Stockton. Been a pleasure.A1a
6800039F6BPlayer Default: We did it.{Grim} That we did.HonestDan: Here's your cut of the reward. I'll get my half from Stockton. Been a pleasure.X1a
6900039F6APlayer Default: What if she's a synth?{Simple philosophy} If even after all they've done to her they don't know if she's a synth or not, I figure she's human enough.HonestDan: Here's your cut of the reward. I'll get my half from Stockton. Been a pleasure.Y1a
7000039F69Player Default: I want my reward. Now.Understood.HonestDan: Here's your cut of the reward. I'll get my half from Stockton. Been a pleasure.B1a
710001DB93Player Default: Likewise. Glad you were on my side.{Thankful} Here's your cut of the reward. I'll get my half from Stockton. Been a pleasure.Player Default: Be safe, Dan.A1a
720001DB81Player Default: Be safe, Dan.{Friendly} Same to you.A1a
730001DB70Player Default: I did more than half the work on this job. My share should reflect that.{Angry, but then thinks better of it / Irritated} There's some truth to that. 60/40 work for you?Player Default: Be safe, Dan.B1a
74Player Default: I did more than half the work on this job. My share should reflect that.{Angry, but then thinks better of it / Irritated} 90/10? Is that a joke? I risked my life, same as you. 70/30 is my final offer.Player Default: Be safe, Dan.B2a
75Player Default: I did more than half the work on this job. My share should reflect that.{Angry, but then thinks better of it / Irritated} Fine, I'll give you 90/10. If you want the other 10% you better be prepared to fight for it.B3a
76Player Default: I did more than half the work on this job. My share should reflect that.{Angry, but then thinks better of it / Irritated} I've had enough of haggling to last three lifetimes. So we're done.B4a
770001DB6FPlayer Default: See you around.Bye.X1a
780001DB6EPlayer Default: You holding out on me?{Affronted, sounds sincere / Irritated} They call me Honest Dan for a reason. That's exactly half of what Stockton agreed to pay me. Not one cap more, not one cap less.Player Default: Be safe, Dan.Y1a
79MS17_DanFollowing000A7D10{Honorable, a little ironic} I'm going to find those survivors. Or die trying.HonestDan: Hell of a job, right?A
800018AF71NPCMHonestDan: I'm going to find those survivors. Or die trying.{It's his job to put his life on the line, darkly amused at this} Hell of a job, right?Player Default: It seems like you actually care about this job, though.A1a
810018AF6APlayer Default: It seems like you actually care about this job, though.{Wry} My pockets would be a lot heavier if I didn't have any sentimentality.A1a
82{Has scars} You see enough shit, though, and either you want to muck it out or make it worse.HonestDan: Well, the survivors won't rescue themselves.A1b
830018AF1FPlayer Default: Takes a special type of person to be paid to die.Tell me about it.HonestDan: Well, the survivors won't rescue themselves.B1a
840018AF1EPlayer Default: Here's hoping you got dental.{Chuckle} You are all manner of strange.HonestDan: Well, the survivors won't rescue themselves.X1a
850018AF1DPlayer Default: What are synths, anyway?*grunt* You must be new around here. Synths are synthetic people made by the Institute.Y1a
86Real advanced machines. Might as well be human because no one can tell the difference between them and us.Y1b
87Everyone in the Commonwealth is afraid of Synths, and the Institute.Player Default: It seems like you actually care about this job, though.Y1c
88Player Default: What are synths, anyway?Ask three different people, you'll get three different answers to that. Wildly different.Y2a
89Most people believe the Institute's behind every manner of ill in the Commonwealth.Y2b
90Sister disappears or lose your Brahmin, the Institute. Settlement murdered in the middle of the night, the Institute.Y2c
91But I've never met a single person that has proof about any of that.Y2d
92But there's no denying synths are real enough. So the Institute's infiltrating us and I doubt they're doing that for our own good.HonestDan: Well, the survivors won't rescue themselves.Y2e
930018AF04Player Default: You see enough shit, though, and either you want to muck it out or make it worse.{Bracing himself for a fight} Well, the survivors won't rescue themselves.A1a
94MS17_DanReactsToAttackingAmelia0009ABE4{Raised volume - Filled with rage, said before attacking the player} The job was to rescue her, asshole.A1a
95-0008A813You going to answer me, or not?
96I do have other things to do.
970003702AAnother day, another job well done.
98Time for some R and R.
99Some people up ahead. I'll follow your lead.
100{Controlling anger, seen evidence of atrocities} Just what the hell are they doing down here?
101I'll meet you at the Compound.
102{Anger, player betrayed him} I have nothing to say to you.
103{Anger, player betrayed him} What goes around comes around, "friend."
104{Brooding} They're hiding something. I'm sure of it.
105{Irritated} I hate this place.
