TOPIC TOPIC TEXT / PROMPT EMOTION RESPONSE TEXT #
GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 A pleasure to meet you! I'm Dr. Thomas Hildern, Director of Operations, OSI East. I presume you're here about Vault 22? {Very professional, smooth} 1
GREETING Neutral 50 We spoke earlier, didn't we? About Vault 22. My offer still stands, if you've changed your mind. 2
GREETING Neutral 50 We still need a contractor on our Vault 22 project. Interested? 3
GREETING Neutral 50 Yes? Something else you needed? 4
GREETING Neutral 50 I received a pleasant call from Dr. Keely. It seems we have you to thank for keeping her alive. Very charitable of you. {He's not at all happy that Keely is alive} 5
GREETING Neutral 50 Ah! I was just wondering what had become of you. 6
GREETING Neutral 50 What do you want? I thought I told you to stay the hell out of here. 7
GREETING Neutral 50 What are you doing in my office? You're not welcome here, get out! 8
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic003 What do you think of NCR's chances against the Legion? Neutral 50 To be frank, I have no idea. I leave the fighting to Colonel Hsu, and I expect him to leave the science to me. {Hsu = "shoe"} 9
Neutral 50 Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have. 10
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic004 Keely wiped the data. It's gone. Neutral 50 Keely. Again. Do you... do you understand what that rotting old bitch has done?! Thousands of people, mass starvation. We had a chance to avoid that. {absolutely furious} 11
Neutral 50 And I had a chance to prove that scientists could be more than a bunch of useless idealists. But Keely doesn't give a goddamn about that, does she? {absolutely furious} 12
Keely wiped the data. It's gone. Neutral 50 You're an accomplice in this. Keely is one old woman - you could have easily stopped her. You're either incompetent, or you were on her side. {turning his fury on the player} 13
Keely wiped the data. It's gone. Neutral 50 Now get out of this office. Get out! {furious, throwing the player out} 14
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic007 No. "Civilized" people stack the deck in their own favor, don't they? Neutral 50 If you're unhappy with the terms of our agreement, then consider this an object lesson. {fake friendliness} 15
Neutral 50 In the future, I'm sure you'll consider your agreements and contracts more carefully. Now, here is the sum we agreed to. 16
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic008 Goodbye. Neutral 50 Best of luck to you. Not that you'll need it. You seem like a reasonably competent person... {going back to his work, not even looking at the player anymore} 17
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic009 Why terminate her contract? Neutral 50 Williams has a tendency to feel before she thinks. Not in the lab. But everywhere else. 18
Neutral 50 That might be forgivable if she kept her concerns to herself. But she doesn't. Not in front of her peers, not even with contractors like yourself. 19
Neutral 50 That kind of behavior can undermine morale. She convinced my last contractor to quit. Same way she tried with you. 20
Neutral 50 Probably didn't tell you that, did she? 21
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic010 You didn't always work for the OSI? Neutral 50 No, I... no. The OSI hasn't been around for very long. I received my training elsewhere. {reluctant to discuss his former comrades} 22
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic011 So who *did* train you? Neutral 50 Before the bombs, I might have studied at any number of colleges, universities. They gave a man a chance to advance himself... or so I've heard. 23
Neutral 50 But after the bombs - until a few years ago - anyone with half a brain had one choice. The Followers of the Apocalypse. 24
Neutral 50 Didn't matter if you agreed with them or not. You either played along or you were turned away. 25
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic012 And what do the Followers believe? Neutral 50 Knowledge for knowledge sake. A society of equals. They purport to be intelligent people, and then they spout this old-world dogma. 26
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic013 Doesn't sound like a good place for a person of ambition. Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] Exactly right. Imagine what the Followers could have accomplished if they were properly motivated... if they had a unified purpose! {the player has said something he agrees with - now he's confiding in player} 27
Neutral 50 Those of us who founded the OSI... we wanted to put our knowledge to work. And we have, to some degree. {confiding in player} 28
Neutral 50 But the execs at OSI Central... they're still bound to the old ideas. Society of equals, and all that. There's still too little direction. {confiding in player} 29
Neutral 50 If I can make real breakthroughs here... show the President what can be done when junior researchers are kept in line... kept focused on task... {confiding in player} 30
Neutral 50 Who knows. Maybe I'll be sitting in OSI Central, in a few years time. And there'll be no more coddling of "free spirits" like our friend, Williams. {confiding in player - a little conspiratorial} 31
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic014 So... you wanted something more? Neutral 50 [FAILED] That was years ago. No point in discussing it. We have more practical concerns... and more important things to talk about. {dismissive - player said the wrong thing} 32
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic016 The Vault 22 data is gone. Destroyed. Neutral 50 Destroyed. Really. I find that hard to believe. More likely, you failed to locate the proper server. {Keeping his cool, doesn't believe the playerSCRIPTER: Player should lose NCR reputation points here} 33
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic017 Actually, I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Neutral 50 From Alice? I'll see that she's paid right away. 34
Neutral 50 Crimson Caravan runs a tight operation, even out here in the waste. Wouldn't do to keep them waiting. 35
Actually, I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Neutral 50 Was there anything else? Or were you just here about the invoice? 36
Actually, I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Neutral 50 Was there anything else? Or were you just here about the invoice? 37
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic018 The plants in that vault were dangerous. We destroyed the data. Neutral 50 We? We?! You were a part of this? After we made an explicit agreement, you have the fucking gall to destroy priceless scientific data? {absolutely furious} 38
Neutral 50 The authorities are going to hear about this. They're going to know your name, they're going to know your goddamn face. {absolutely furious, threatening the player} 39
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic019 Believe whatever you want. It's the truth. Neutral 50 Keely. It was Keely, wasn't it? Who else would fail to give a fuck that thousands of people are going to starve, without that data? {furious} 40
Neutral 50 And for what? So Keely can wage her selfish little war against me and the OSI. {absolutely furious and bitter} 41
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic022 I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Neutral 50 From Alice? I'll see that she's paid right away. 42
Neutral 50 Crimson Caravan runs a tight operation, even out here in the waste. Wouldn't do to keep them waiting. 43
Neutral 50 Was there anything else? Or were you just here about the invoice? 44
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic023 Then you don't want this invoice from Alice McLafferty? Neutral 50 Fine. I'll see that she's paid. Crimson Caravan always fulfils their contractual obligations to the letter. {cold. This is also a veiled attack on the player, who didn't see through his "contractual obligations."} 45
Neutral 50 Now I assume there's nothing more, so I trust you can see yourself to the door. {very cold} 46
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic024 What other responsibilities does this office have? Neutral 50 We aid some programs the Republic has sponsored involving sharecropper farms in the area, but those haven't panned out too well from what I hear. 47
Neutral 50 There've been complaints about the amount of water we're supplying, but those are just excuses for lack of diligence, I'm sure. 48
What other responsibilities does this office have? Neutral 50 We aid some programs the Republic has sponsored involving sharecropper farms in the area, which seem to be coming along nicely. 49
Neutral 50 There was some sort of trouble involving the water supply recently, but it sorted itself out, as these things often do. 50
VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic025 Goodbye. Neutral 50 Dammit. Now you've made me forget what I was doing... {irritated with player for interrupting him} 51
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic000 <Lie> Yes, that's right. Neutral 50 Wonderful! Straight to it, then. Have you signed the release forms? No? Doesn't matter - we'll keep that to ourselves. 52
<Lie> Yes, that's right. Neutral 50 Vault 22... where to begin... {This is pure showmanship and a practiced speech - he knows exactly where to begin} 53
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic001 No, this is the first I've heard about Vault 22. Neutral 50 No, they wouldn't have briefed you, would they? Probably better that our junior fellows stay within the bounds of their pay grade, anyway. 54
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic002 Goodbye. Neutral 50 Wrong turn? Happens all the time. Do they give me a secretary? Of course not. 55
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic003 I'd be careful with that data. You didn't see those plants in the Vault. Neutral 50 Your concerns are perfectly understandable, but I assure you, they're entirely misplaced. We would never use a technology that wasn't fully tested. 56
Neutral 50 We aren't some motley band of Vault alchemists. We're with the government, for goodness sake. Have a little faith in us! {Big reassuring smile} 57
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic004 BUGGED LINE BELOW Neutral 50 [FAILED] If you are unhappy with the terms of our agreement, then consider this an object lesson. {condescending} 58
Neutral 50 In the future, I'm sure you'll consider your agreements and contracts more carefully. Now, here is the sum we agreed to. 59
BUGGED LINE BELOW Neutral 50 Of course, we're very grateful for your efforts, and I'll make certain that you're credited in our final report. Good day to you. {He's full of crap} 60
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic005 Depends. How much are you paying? Neutral 50 Ha ha! A mercenary, is that it? You won't be disappointed, I promise you. The Office of Science and Industry provides highly competitive benefits. 61
Neutral 50 And as an external contractor, your pay would be... rather more competitive than those of our regular employees. {lowers voice - fake conspiratorial tone} 62
Neutral 50 But we should keep that to ourselves, don't you think? {slimy wink} 63
Neutral 50 So... how about I tell you what we need, and then you can tell me whether you're up to it? No pressure, of course. 64
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic006 This all sounds a little hard to believe. Neutral 50 Skepticism can be forgiven. But I think you'll come around... if the reports I've heard are true. 65
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic007 This doesn't sound like my kind of job. Neutral 50 I'm very sorry to hear that. If you should change your mind, the offer will stand. As will the substantial reward... {Emphasis on the reward - he's still trying to entice the player} 66
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic008 I'll think about it, and maybe I'll be back. Neutral 50 Naturally! Take all the time you need. {very smooth} 67
Neutral 50 I assure you, the OSI places considerable value upon our contractors. We will take good care of you, should you decide to accept our offer. {He is completely full of shit.} 68
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic009 Forget it. I don't have time for this. Neutral 50 Of course not! You're obviously a busy man. But if life should... quiet down a bit... I'm certain we can find a place for you here. {Big fake smile at the end} 69
Forget it. I don't have time for this. Neutral 50 Of course not! I can see you're a woman of consequence. But if life should... quiet down a bit... I'm certain we can find a place for you here. {Big fake smile at the end} 70
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic010 I'm listening. Neutral 50 Imagine, if you will, the wasteland in bloom... vast fields of corn that grow from seeds and produce their bounty in the space of a month... {His elevator pitch} 71
Neutral 50 ...orchards of trees, their branches weighed halfway to the ground, hung with fat, ripe oranges. A harvest that could feed a city... or a nation. {More elevator pitch} 72
Neutral 50 And all this... all this... requiring no more than a few of drops of precious water, and the efforts of only a handful of human farmers. Impossible? {More elevator pitch} 73
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic011 Save the sales pitch. Just tell me what you want me to do. Neutral 50 All right. Straight to the point. I believe that the inhabitants of Vault 22 unlocked the secrets of vegetative growth. 74
Save the sales pitch. Just tell me what you want me to do. Neutral 50 Plants are spilling from their gate. No one tends them. No one waters them. Yet they multiply and spread in all directions. 75
Neutral 50 Find the reason for this miraculous growth, and I promise you, the OSI will see that you are generously compensated. 76
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic012 Yes, I'd say so. Neutral 50 A realist. We have that in common. A year ago, I'd have said the same. {playing politics with the player} 77
Neutral 50 But what if I was to tell you that the wasteland can yield an endless bounty, and that the secret may lie a mere few miles from where we stand... 78
Neutral 50 We need only reach out and take it. And for that, I need you. 79
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic013 Nothing is impossible. Neutral 50 Precisely. Science has proven that truth a thousand times over, but how many wasteland savages believe it? Present company excepted, of course. 80
Neutral 50 The bounty I described to you is no idle fantasy. It exists, in primitive form, only a few miles from where we stand. 81
Neutral 50 We need only reach out and unlock its secret. For that, the OSI needs you. 82
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic014 Get to the point. Neutral 50 Fair enough. My point is this. I believe that the inhabitants of Vault 22 unlocked the secrets of vegetative growth. 83
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic015 All right. I'll do it. Neutral 50 Good. No need to check in with the NCR authorities, I can authorize your payment from OSI accounts. {abruptly turns off sales pitch (and the smile) - now he's all business, sealing the deal} 84
Neutral 50 Vaults typically contain a server room on a lower level, where they would have backed up their research data. A computer room, you understand? {a little condescending on the last sentence} 85
Neutral 50 Download all the information on the central server to your Pip-Boy. And you'll be certain to bring me any notes or samples that you find, won't you? 86
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic016 I'll think about it. Neutral 50 Very well. I hope you'll consider this an open offer from the OSI. Now, I'm sure your time is valuable, so unless there was anything else... 87
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic017 Goodbye. Neutral 50 Yes... goodbye. {Dismissing the player, turning back to his work} 88
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic018 Tell me more about the OSI. Neutral 50 The Office of Science and Industry. That's a rather expansive topic. I could talk for hours, but I'm sure I'd bore you. 89
Neutral 50 Suffice to say, we are the leading edge of the NCR. Our work focuses on practical matters. Medicine, engineering, biology. 90
Neutral 50 The Dam, for instance. OSI routes its energy supply to our cities in the west. That's only one responsibility of this office. 91
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic019 Anything else I should know? Neutral 50 I thought it was a fairly straightforward assignment. It's a simple question of retrieving the data, which shouldn't prove overly challenging. {fake smile} 92
Neutral 50 Downloading the data will be handled by your Pip-Boy. You might think of yourself as a mere means of conveyance. No insult intended, of course. {Insult *is* intended, though he's smiling condescendingly} 93
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic020 Actually, I had some other questions. Neutral 50 Oh? What might those be? 94
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic024 Tell me more. Neutral 50 Good! I thought I sensed a kindred soul in you, beneath the wasteland veneer. {His sales pitch worked, but he can't help subtly insulting the player at the end} 95
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic025 Scientific discovery is never so simple as that. Neutral 50 Isn't it? One directs one's efforts - or the efforts of others - toward a goal, and progress is made. It's a matter of incentives, nothing more. {He's disagreeing with the player} 96
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic027 What do you need me to do? Neutral 50 I believe that the inhabitants of Vault 22 unlocked the secrets of vegetative growth. 97
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic028 Well... consider it a down payment on future service. Neutral 50 [FAILED] No, I'm sure I won't require your services in the future. The OSI does not enter into long-term arrangements with its contractors. 98
Well... consider it a down payment on future service. Neutral 50 Of course, we're all very grateful for your efforts, and I'll make certain that you're credited in our final report. Good day to you. 99
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic030 I've brought the data from Vault 22. Neutral 50 Wonderful! Excellent work! Let me see it... it'll take a moment to decode on my terminal... {Surprised that the player actually succeeded} 100
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic031 Never mind. I'll be back later. Neutral 50 You won't keep me in suspense for long, I hope? Of course I can't authorize any payments until I have the data in hand... 101
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic032 No problem. I can wait. Neutral 50 I think... Williams' decryption algorithms seem to be working... {Williams is a character's last name} 102
Neutral 50 Yes... here it is! The data is mostly uncorrupted. This will make the board of directors finally sit up and take notice... {big personal victory} 103
Neutral 50 Here, then... as promised. An agreeable sum, payable upon delivery of the data. You've more than done your part. 104
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic033 By the way... you never warned me about the dangers in that place. Neutral 50 Didn't I? Did you encounter undue difficulties? Clearly not, or you wouldn't be standing here, would you? 105
Neutral 50 All that matters is whether the data is intact... 106
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic038 Fine. Just give me my reward. Neutral 50 I knew you were a reasonable person. Here you are... our agreed-upon sum. 107
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic041 Glad to be of service. Neutral 50 A pleasure working with you, really! I'll make certain that you're mentioned in the final report, you have my word on it. {He's totally lying.} 108
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic042 I agree, I've more than done my part. You owe me more caps. Neutral 50 You want to renegotiate your contract. Mm. This is a very serious matter, you do understand that, don't you? {condescending} 109
Neutral 50 I realize that one's word counts for little in the wasteland, but amongst civilized people, one doesn't just... demand more than one has agreed to. {really condescending} 110
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic043 Make it fast. I want my caps. Neutral 50 If the data's intact, you'll get your reward. I gave my word. I'm not the kind of wasteland savage you're used to dealing with. {slightly contemptuous} 111
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic044 Damn right. No thanks to you. Neutral 50 I'm sorry you feel that way. But we both came out ahead, so... no harm done, I hope. {fake friendliness} 112
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic045 All right. Then I'll sell this data to some other interested party... Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] Now... wait a minute... {Getting nervous} 113
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic046 What contract? You cut an under-the-table deal with me. Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] You're saying that I didn't file the proper paperwork, is that it? I suppose you're an expert on NCR procedures? 114
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic049 I'm not the first person you've sent to Vault 22... am I? Neutral 50 I never said you were. You've been speaking to Williams, haven't you? {The player is confronting him on a sensitive issue, and he's keeping a poker face.} 115
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic050 By the way, that Vault was just as dangerous as Williams thought. Neutral 50 I don't see how that's relevant. The dangers of the Vault were your business, not mine. The only question is whether the data is still intact. {dismissive} 116
By the way, that Vault was just as dangerous as Williams thought. Neutral 50 Was it? I'm sure I made it very clear... the hazards of the job were your business, not mine. The important question is whether this data is intact. 117
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic052 I'm the one asking the questions, Dr. Hildern. Neutral 50 Fair enough. Begging your pardon, but this is beginning to feel like an interrogation. {overly polite } 118
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic053 <Lie> No, Williams didn't tell me anything. Neutral 50 All right. I'll take you at your word. Williams didn't say anything at all, you just came to this conclusion on your own. {not obviously sarcastic - should sound like he's trying to be reasonable} 119
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic056 Yes, I have. What difference does it make? Neutral 50 None at all. Informed speculation on my part. Williams is very good at her job, so it remains secure... despite her best efforts. 120
Yes, I have. What difference does it make? Neutral 50 No, you aren't the first person I've sent to the Vault. I'm sorry that I neglected to tell you, but I don't see how it makes any difference. 121
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic058 What's your opinion of Williams? Neutral 50 Williams is an admirable researcher. If she wasn't, I'd have terminated her contract, and she'd be begging for work from my former employers. 122
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic059 You're doing all these things yourself? Neutral 50 Yes. With the assistance of my team, of course. {taking credit for other people's work} 123
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic060 NCR has a food shortage? Neutral 50 Not yet. But our government understands the value of proactive thought. Our studies project an imbalance between production and consumption. 124
Neutral 50 Or, for a layman such as yourself - not enough food, too many mouths to feed. Mass starvation. In a decade or so. {condescending} 125
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 Directly? No. But we attempt to maximize its output. You have no idea how difficult it is to provide power to an entire nation. 126
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 Fortunately, we also have the HELIOS One facility. One of our external contractors recently got the station up and running. 127
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 Fortunately, we also have the HELIOS One facility. One of our external contractors recently got the station up and running. 128
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 We were starting to bring the HELIOS One facility online, as well. That might have increased our power output by half. 129
Neutral 50 But some wasteland scum managed to sabotage the array. Probably got quite a laugh at our expense. Very funny indeed. 130
Neutral 50 I'd pay a year's salary for a crack at that maniac. Not that he'd ever show his face in a place like this. 131
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 We were starting to bring the HELIOS One facility online, as well. That might have increased our power output by half. 132
Neutral 50 But some wasteland scum managed to sabotage the array. Probably got quite a laugh at our expense. Very funny indeed. 133
Neutral 50 I'd pay a year's salary for a crack at that maniac. Not that she'd ever show her face in a place like this. 134
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 Our efforts at HELIOS One held a great deal of promise, until some drifter blew in from the waste and managed to reroute the power. 135
Neutral 50 As to where the power is going... who knows. Can you imagine? A drifter outsmarting professional scientists? Only in New Vegas. {shaking his head at end} 136
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 We'd hoped that HELIOS One would boost power to McCarran and Vegas. Then some damned crusader routed all the power to Freeside. 137
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 I also have high hopes for our HELIOS One facility. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the two "scientists" who are working there. 138
Neutral 50 So far, they've only managed to achieve one percent power output. I'd send help, if I could spare the personnel. 139
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 His name was something like... "Exceptional" or "Marvelous" or... 140
Do you control the Dam from here? Neutral 50 That's the trouble with this wasteland - too many damned variables. No one can account for them all. 141
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic063 Fantastic. Neutral 50 Yes! That was it, exactly. 142
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic064 No, that was me. I fixed HELIOS One. Neutral 50 I... see. Of course you did. {doesn't believe the player, but humoring him.} 143
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic065 How many others have you sent to the Vault? Neutral 50 I'd have to consult my records. Eight? Ten? Your point is what? {nonchalant} 144
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic066 I prefer to know what I'm getting myself into. Neutral 50 You want certainty? You'll never find it... especially not in the pursuit of science. 145
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic067 Maybe I should cancel our deal. Neutral 50 Do whatever you think is best. You're under no obligations. If you want the caps, you'll complete the job. Simple. {trying to sound very reasonable} 146
Maybe I should cancel our deal. Neutral 50 Take my advice. Forget about Williams. She's a talented researcher, but she doesn't understand people, and she can't see the big picture. {fake encouragement} 147
Maybe I should cancel our deal. Neutral 50 Now, I know your time is valuable, so I won't waste any more of it. Feel free to show yourself out... 148
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic068 I want double the caps. Or I spread the word that you're full of shit. Neutral 50 [SUCCEEDED] All right. I'll admit that it's been difficult to find anyone willing to enter the Vault. And I'd rather get the data sooner than later. 149
Neutral 50 You have a deal. I'll double your reward, if you bring me the data. But this is as high as my budget will allow. 150
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic071 It doesn't trouble you that you sent eight or ten people to their deaths? Neutral 50 I have no evidence that they're dead. A thousand things could have happened between here and the Vault. 151
Neutral 50 They could have changed their minds and walked away. I wouldn't be much of a scientist if I leapt to conclusions without proof. 152
VMS06ThomasHildernTopic072 Then you broke our agreement. I want double the caps. Neutral 50 [FAILED] No. Our agreement was very specific. You bring me the data, I give you a reward. 153
Neutral 50 We never discussed the dangers. That's your business, not mine. If you can't provide the data, I'm sure I'll find someone who can. 154
VMS06Topic000 ...and make sure you have some healthy competition. Neutral 50 There's... there's no need to do anything rash. Naturally, OSI would be willing to negotiate for exclusive rights to that data. {Recomposing himself} 155
...and make sure you have some healthy competition. Neutral 50 Here. Take these caps. That's all of my contracting budget, and it's yours. {basically bribing the player} 156
Neutral 50 Now, I've... got to get back to work. I'm sure you understand. Exit's over there, you can show yourself out. 157
VMS06Topic001 You said you were the Director of OSI? Neutral 50 Director of the entire OSI? Me? If I didn't know better, I'd say you were trying to plant seditious ideas in my head. Ha ha ha. 158
Neutral 50 No, I direct our eastern operations. I've been responsible for squeezing unprecedented levels of power from the Dam. 159
Neutral 50 I'm also confronting the problem of food production, in what little spare time I have. But I've found some promising leads. 160
VMS06Topic002 Then it wouldn't matter if I mentioned our deal to the colonel? Neutral 50 All right. Fair enough. No need to bring the military into this matter - it's between the two of us, after all. {He's scared, trying to hide it} 161
