PDA

From DoomWiki.org

A typical view of the PDA

The PDA (Personal digital assistant) is one of Doom 3's most useful items. It acts as a media player, email reader and access key for restricted areas.

Besides the player's personal PDA, other PDAs can be picked up and scanned to read helpful hints (including backstory, hints to monster types ahead, and combination codes for lockers).

PDAs you are not supposed to have are attributed to Duncan Mathews, and contain the contents of his PDA.

Safety Awareness Month
From: Safety committee
Downloaded: Info terminal in the Mars City Departure Lounge

Safety is critical to everything we do on Mars. We will review all standard safety protocols during the month of November - Safety Awareness month.

It is mandatory that you schedule time to attend each of these valuable workshops.

Proper Plasma Handling: Review of the proper storage of plasma, how to handle plasma leaks, and the best ways to treat plasma burns.

Emergency First Aid: Learn the location and correct use for all of the Health Packs placed throughout the facility. Special attention will be given to waste prevention methods. Health resources are squandered if a large pack is used when only a small pack is needed.

Storage of Weapons and Ammo: Special lecture on the safe storage of weapons and ammo. Fred Nilsson will be giving hands-on lessons in proper targeting and strafing.

Emergency Loss of Environment: This lecture will focus on what to do if you are faced with an air leak, structural failure, or airlock failure. Special care will be paid to the locations of emergency air tanks.

See postings outside UAC HR for times and locations.

The Soul Cube

Downloaded: Ian McCormick's computer, Delta Labs Level 2a

Report filed by Ian McCormick:

I've been working on the Soul Cube for a few weeks now. It is a fascinating artifact and as it turns out, it has some amazing properties. I wrote a new glyph pattern query yesterday and let it run all night. With the new query, the linguistics computer finally cracked the remaining glyphs!

The Soul Cube is by every definition a weapon, and it seems to have been built to repel whatever type of creatures invaded this ancient culture. If I am reading them right, during a battle the cube gains power with each life the wielder takes. When it is fully charged it can be used to slay even the strongest of creatures. Even more impressive is that when it kills a creature it transfers that creature's life force back to who is using the cube!

I know this sounds like magic and I have not been able to activate it to prove the theory but this is what the glyphs illustrate.

The glyphs specifically point out that you must kill five creatures before it becomes charged and then amazingly it will tell you it is ready. It is almost like a sentient being; this object is a fantastic find.

Audio Logs[edit]

Maintenance Update
This is the audio log of maintenance technician Adam Berneche, dated November 10th, 2145. I fixed the couplings on the heat shields this morning with no problems. I did however have another odd experience while I was down there. Shortly after finishing the first coupling adjustment, I distinctly heard whispering. When I went to investigate the sounds, I found nothing. I checked the work logs and I was the only person scheduled to be in that area today.

That experience, coupled with the stories I've heard from some guys over in the Delta Labs has me pretty freaked out. I'm really beginning to hate going down to the underground maintenance area. The people down there are a bit off. The mumblings, the weird looks, the whole place is just plain creepy. I'm always expecting someone to jump out at me.

I've secured my tools and the busted modulator in the storage cabinet next to the maintenance elevator. Technicians should use cabinet code 396 to access them. End of log.

Adam,

Please take more caution in securing your personal data assistant. It's turned up in lost and found three times this month. As you know, your base security clearances are stored on that and it becomes a serious security issue any time a PDA is lost. Failure to secure your PDA could eventually result in your termination.

Mr. Berneche,

I have some great news for you, your name came up in our last management meeting as a possible candidate for our Delta Labs outreach program. As you have probably heard, we are conducting some very exciting and important experiments here in Delta. Your supervisor recommended you as a good candidate and in fact he insisted you would be perfect for the job. I've reviewed your file and I agree with his assessment, you will make a perfect test subject.

Our work here is very important to the UAC and you should feel privileged that you have a chance to be a part of it.

Mr. K. Clearsky

Unexplainable Things
This is Grant Baston, the environmental services supervisor. The date is October 19th. I've been hearing an alarming number of reports on some, uh, unexplainable things. Being on another planet and working underground has always been a little spooky, so we always have the occasional report of strange things. But what is worrying me is the fact that the number of these reports is up by a lot. People are truly frightened.

The rumors we're hearing about experiments from the Delta Complex are not helping. The power fluctuations aren't helping at all either. Having the lights flicker constantly and losing power for several minutes at a time is scaring everyone down here.

I'm doing my best to keep people on track, but we're continually shorthanded. Someone is reporting in sick almost every day. I'll keep my director appraised of the situation and will continue to log reports as I get them.

Audio Logs[edit]

Power Demands
This is the audio log of Frank Delahue, engineering manager assigned to power production dated October 18th, 2145. The current operational status of the grid is 23% over nominal capacity. I've increased workshifts to 12 hours a day for all personnel to keep up with demand.

The constant and increasing load from the Delta Complex is causing havoc. We are going to start losing critical systems if we have to sustain these levels much longer. I request clearance to requisition parts from other departments in order to maintain our equipment.

Ok. I don't know what is going on over in Delta but I'm doing all I can down here. The constant demands are bad enough but the rumors going around are making things a whole lot worse. And I've got to tell you if things don't get better soon, all hell is going to break loose...

Fire Blast Precautions
This is the audio log of Frank Delahue, engineering manager assigned to power production dated October 24th, 2145. Reclamation problems continue to plague the main processor. Two more valve overloads on that unit in just the past week. These overloads can destroy the valves, causing very dangerous fire, jetting with enough heat to incinerate sensitive equipment nearby.

To date we've had only one reported injury as a result of these valve failures, and this is due in large part to the quick response of the engineering team. Our procedure of entering the failure code 842 in the operation terminal have proved adequate and I recommend no changes in that procedure.

Undocumented Cargo
This is Mark Stanton, manifest controller, currently stationed at Mars City. I'm not sure who to send this to so I decided to send it to quite a few people. If you're on the recipient list, please take a moment to review this report. It is quite important.

I'm very concerned over the shipping procedures out here. I am the manifest controller, and as such I need to be informed of everything coming in and out of Mars City. Someone here is subverting my position and preventing me from getting data on things being shipped.

This is unacceptable. Not only could this reflect poorly on my upcoming review, but this is my job and I'm tired of being kept out of the loop.

I have no idea who keeps telling the shipping crews to allow things in and out without allowing me to produce or procure the manifest, but whoever it is, it must stop.

One of the dock workers actually told me to piss off when I tried to stop one of the last containers from going straight to Delta. I immediately filed a report and will follow up with a transit manager, next time I see him. End of log.

Audio Logs[edit]

High Incidence of Psychological Reports
Audio log for Dr. Caseon, currently stationed at Mars City. I've just left the weekly status meeting here at medical. The most prominent topic was the vast number of psychological issues we are seeing as of late. The number of reports indicates that 10% of the overall base personnel have shown symptoms. As many people will not come in for this type of thing, the number of affected personnel could truly be in the 30-40% range.

It is even manifested itself here in medical. We have several nurses and a couple of good doctors out for related reasons. I'm going to formally request two additional psychiatrists on the next shuttle from Earth. The two we have are being overworked and the content of their sessions with patients is starting to affect them as well. Dr. Caseon out.

Note: According to the game files, the date is 10-30-2145.


Patient Attack
Dr. Mark Caseon. At 15:37 patient Jonathan Wills was admitted after complaining of insomnia and nausea. According to the nurse, Mr. Wills was calm and exhibited no signs of disorder when he was brought to exam room 5. However, by the time I reached him at ten after four, his personality had changed dramatically.

When I entered the room, Mr. Wills lunged at me with a scalpel he apparently stole from a supply drawer. With assistance of an orderly we managed to subdue and sedate him without injury. Mr. Wills was heavily medicated and could not be diagnosed. But in the 20 minutes he was left unattended he managed to carve three symbols in his arm and cut his own tongue into two halves.

I can only guess at the cause of his problems. I hope that additional psychiatrists arrive soon. In the meantime in response to this assault, all medical supplies and armaments will be locked in a secure hospital cabinet with the code 347. Dr. Caseon out.

My advice to you, continue to document everything you can, attempt to find the root of the problem, and for goodness sakes, stash weapons and medical supplies for yourself in case things get worse. I'm glad to hear you've already taken some precautions by locking some supplies in that cabinet. I hope it is enough. I appreciate you including the code in your report and will keep it secure.

General Troop Morale
Audio report on troop morale. Morale here is beginning to drop. It's nothing to worry about yet since I keep my marines sharp and ready to go. But events at the base are wearing on the troops.

There have been a lot of things happening here on the base. I believe the UAC experiments being performed here must be the cause. Out here they could be experimenting on God knows what.

There are quite a few people missing. No marines of course, it's the civilian population I'm referring to. The bottom line, whatever it is they have going on here has my men on a razor's edge.

At this point there is no cause for alarm but I am requesting we rotate squads every 90 days instead of every 180. I will continue to report as the situation develops. It is good we have the new marines in route, fresh faces will help. Sergeant Tyson out.

Troop Deployments

I've started a series of training exercises focusing on close quarter, small weapons combat, as well as instituting mandatory refresher courses on all munitions and weapons in our armory.

In response to the large number of security breaches and general feelings of ill will around the base, I've doubled security details, placing 2 marines at each checkpoint. This additional presence should help calm things down. I expect that the incoming marines are not quite as green as the last deployment. They've turned out ok, but some combat experience will go a long way right now. Sergeant Tyson out.

Sentry Bot Security
Date: 11-02-2145
From: PFC Hagar

Staff Sergeant Tyson,

I have been a major supporter of putting Sentry Bots on routine patrols. In the past, they have proven to be very reliable. That changed today.

I witnessed two of our guys doing maintenance on a bot in Mars City. While having it only partially assembled, they activated its sensors to test their repairs. All of the sudden, the Sentry locked onto one of the marines as an enemy and began firing at him. If the ammo had been loaded, that marine would have been killed. Thankfully the other marine was able to immobilize it quickly.

The Sentry Bot is powerful - but maybe too powerful. Why do we need that much firepower in Mars City? Except for the odd report of individuals going a little crazy, we don't have many problems. Do we really expect the Sentry Bots to know the difference between someone having a bad day and someone gone mad?

I hope you can talk to Sarge about this before something worse happens.

Audio Logs[edit]

Missing Personnel
This is the audio log of director William Banks, dated October 20th, 2145. It is come to my attention that we have an alarming number of missing personnel throughout the base. My office has received 4 additional reports from Delta in the last week alone, mentioning that personnel are not reporting for work and that calls to their quarters have gone unanswered.

My office has sent the names of those personnel to Mars City Security and they have promised to initiate an investigation. But this news is... very disturbing, especially at a time when we have so many people in the infirmary, suffering from sudden cases of schizophrenia and other psychological disorders. I hope there is no connection between those cases and these reports of missing personnel.

Energy Deficiencies
This is the audio log of director William Banks, dated October 5th, 2145. It has been brought to my attention by environmental services that the recent power grid changes have caused many non critical systems to malfunction. The report explains that this is due to either intermittent power outages or lower than optimal voltage input.

It also says that sufficient power distribution to all non-critical systems is becoming more difficult to maintain thanks to Dr. Betruger and his so-called optimizations to the energy storage in and around the facility. I assured the director of E. S. that I would file a report with Central Authority over this.

I can't have my precious cargo sitting around the hangar waiting for your personnel to process it. I expect your immediate attention on this matter.

Director Banks,

Research Assistant Eric Raffel has not reported for work all this week. I've called his quarters repeatedly without response. No one has seen him in days and I don't know what to do, he is normally a very reliable individual. I've contacted Mars Security with hope that they will try and find him. There aren't a lot of areas to go on this base... man, I hope he's alright.
If I hear anything I'll send word.

ADMIN: Network Security Status
This is Paul Simons, security specialist in IT. Our network security has been breached several times over the last few days. Now, it looks like it may have been going on longer than that but whoever did this really knew what they were doing. They covered their tracks really well. I just happened to notice some log anomalies or it would still be going on.

The intrusion came on an encrypted carrier signal from the Delta Complex. They piggybacked the virus on one of the supercomputer requests and it peeled itself from the data stream once it was inside our firewall. Someone on the inside there has to be responsible.

Unfortunately, due to the security in that complex, I can only tell that it came from within Delta. There's no way to identify which machine or even which lab it came from. Whoever was in our system had access to all personnel data including medical reports. My team will be monitoring the network closely over the next few days looking for anything unusual. End of log.

Other IT managers have reported similar intrusions in their networks. Whomever is doing this must be good or someone with very high level security clearance.

EPD Accident
Audio log for Kyle Berger, research supervisor for the EPD project. Uh, the, uh, the Elemental Phase Deconstructor is fully operational and the research data we have gathered so far is very impressive.

Unfortunately, we had a terrible accident last week. Research assistant Patterson was calibrating one of the core emitters in the chamber and witnesses say he appeared to see something. Almost like, uh something was talking to him and he, uh, backed right into the particle beam.

It was not a pretty sight as it took off the backside of his head. He lived a few minutes, although I'm not sure you can consider that living. But they say his eyes rolled back and forth and he was trying to talk, although after losing that much brain matter I'm sure it was just reflex actions.

Anyway, due to this I have enacted new safety protocols in the lab and we have stocked one of the storage cabinets with emergency medical supplies. The code for the cabinet is 752. End of log.

HR Accident Report
Audio log for Jack Smith, Benefits Analyst in HR 10/24/2145. I just went through another batch of accident reports from the science team. We've had five more people hurt this week while working with the equipment.

The most serious incident was with John Hughes, whose hand was caught in one of the plastic extrusion systems. He was performing maintenance on it and states that he unplugged it and had the safety key in his pocket. It managed to activate without an apparent power source and, uh, shredded his arm up to the elbow before someone got him out. It's been reported that the, uh, machine is still running and we can't shut it down.

The cost on that incident alone is enough to raise the red flag but this is just one in a pile. We're going to overrun our budget on benefits payouts this quarter and while it's not my department, I have to assume that the new equipment budget is going to be blown out as well because according to these reports, the equipment is breaking down on a daily basis. Please mark this for review at corporate. End of log.

Please tell me UAC Corporate is kidding. How the hell is a buddy system going to do anything with accident claims except double them? Tell me how a buddy system would have prevented Joe 'TorsoBoy' Moss from having his arms and legs hacked off by the Albuquerck Capacitator? Maybe his buddy would have heard the thing growl and engage without power or a CRF module? Maybe his buddy's hair would have burst into flames instead and saved us the trouble of needing to run and find water to put him out.

Next thing they'll do is try to fix the problem by having us fill out more MAR forms or reforecast our ODF.

Lipsitz,

A siphon hose in the oxygen displacement valve is forming a leak due to the lowered temperatures required to boost production in the Hydrocon Labs. If this hose were to rupture, it would cause severe instability in the Hydrocon systems and could result in a very dangerous situation. It should really be replaced.

Treatment of Research Team
Audio report regarding the disrespectful treatment of new research staff, September 14th, 2145. As you know I have gone to considerable effort to recruit my staff researchers for Alpha Labs. Finding team members with the qualifications, let alone the willingness to come to Mars, has not been a trivial task. You know this already.

But it is necessary to emphasize why their complaints must be taken seriously. We won't be able to keep our people or recruit new researchers if the harassment continues. No, harassment is exactly the right word. I'm routinely getting reports of UAC security asking inappropriate questions and submitting my staff to unnecessary background checks.

I must insist that we be allowed to keep our personal lives private and be left to complete our assignments without further delays. If there is some kind of security threat, I suggest that UAC security look more deeply into their own staff. This is Andrew Chin, end.

The repairs to storage cabinet 038 have been completed. The door is no longer stuck and we pulled the dent from the side.

Just for your records the new code for cabinet #038 is 409, might be a good idea to write it down.

I don't know where HR is getting the new employees, but the last five guys they've sent me were all a bunch of idiots. They can't get any of their work done on time. I constantly have to keep an eye on them. They work slow, they don't follow any of the standard operating procedures and they can't even remember basic things that I tell them. For example, I changed the cabinet door codes here to 123 because I thought that was easy enough to remember, but they still forgot.

Heh, well they weren't kidding about how much lighter it is over previous prototype models. Won't be so bad carrying this one around.

Anyhow, for a couple of weeks now many of the security teams have not been following proper reporting procedures. Not sure if it's the format of the new S.I.R. so I'll make sure each team is scheduled by training division to get spun up on the new reports.

There's been some security issues in the Alpha Labs. I've sent a team over to investigate and now I can't reach them on any Comm channel. Guess I'll have to go over there myself. Well, I'm headed over there now. I'll finish this security report in full when I get back.

I checked the chamber calibration as you requested, and at first found everything to be within acceptable limits. As I was leaving the chamber though, I started to hear a low whispering sound that seemed to be eminating from the main coupler. Though when I stooped down for a closer look the sound stopped. This happened every time I was leaving the chamber. You may want to check into this matter yourself as I can't seem to pinpoint the source of the sound. As far as everything else is concerned, it all seems to check out. All graphs are running at 2.4 or higher so I don't foresee any other problems.

Good Day

I am DR.John Okonkwo. Civil Servant in the Ministry of Health. I know this proposal will come to you as a surprise because we have not met before either physically or through correspondence. I got your contact from our chamber of commerce here in Nigeria and have no doubt in your ability to handle this proposal involving huge sum of money. My father Chief Isama OKONKWO. (Now Late) was the Royal Head of my community, ELEME (an oil rich town) in Nigeria. My community produces 5.8% of the total crude oil production in Nigeria and 0.5% of the Dollar value of each barrel is paid to my father as royalty by the Federal Government. My father was also the Chairman of ISAMA Special Oil Trust Fund. In his position as the Royal head and Chairman of the Oil Trust Fund, he made some money which he left for me as the only heir to inherit.

The money is Eighteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars(US$18.5). This Money originated from the accumulated royalties between 1976-1998 . Due to poor banking system in Nigeria and political instability as a result of past Military rules (1985-1999) , he deposited this Money in a Strong Room/ Just before my father died he called my attention to the money and charged me to look for a foreigner who would assist me in the transfer/investment of the funds abroad. So l would be very grateful if you could accept to help me achieve this great objective. I promise to give you 25% of the total funds transferred to your vital bank account as compensation for your assistance. Five percent (5%)has been set aside to take care of all expenses we may incur during the transaction. To indicate your interest, contact me urgently and confidentially for more information and the roles you will play in this business.

All the legal Documents concerning this Money will be sent to you as soon as we agreed together. Please I will appreciate that you send your telephone/fax numbers to enable me contact you immediately for discussions.

Yours faithfully,

This is the audio log of plant manager Henry Nelson, dated October 24th, 2145. I don't know how I should report this so I'll just talk about what I know and what I need.

I've had quite a few employees reporting to me that they've heard strange sounds, like voices talking to them, calling them even when they were alone. At first I didn't believe them. The guys down here like to kid around. But they assured me they were serious.

I ignored the stories at first until one day I heard something too. I was working on one of the lift-up service panels and I distinctly heard the voice of someone saying "Over here." I quickly turned to see who was there but the passage was completely empty. I looked around but I didn't see another soul. I even checked the work logs and no one else was working near that area.

I don't want to sound crazy here, but my guys and myself are a little spooked and some of the guys are even talking about ghosts. So to make everyone, even myself feel a little more comfortable, I'd like to request that the security team make a thorough check of the EFR area.

Cooling Rods Replacement
Paul Raad, chief technical officer for the EnPro facility. During my weekly inspection of the coolant system I discovered yet another safety violation. As I've stated repeatedly, our service manuals must be followed to the letter. Now this includes changing back filters for the coolant system on schedule and not when maintenance gets around to it.

As you know, unclean back filters will create pressure inside the coolant system's release tubes. Even a minor disruption in a release tube can dislodge or destroy its coolant rod, overheating the core, possibly sending the entire facility up in smoke.

Now let me be clear: If I see this again, the team responsible will be transferred to Sewerage Treatment before the day is over.

Note: According to the game files, the date is 11-01-2145.


Sentry Problems
Paul Raad, chief technical officer for the EnPro facility. I appreciate the UAC's concerns following the number of stress related illnesses spreading throughout the base. However, I don't understand why we require such a large detail of armed security bots in EnPro. Now you may disagree but I trust my team's mental condition far more than whatever programming is running inside those bots. Which brings me to the reason for this report.

Today one of my best engineers Patrick Thomas was nearly shot when a bot refused his clearance. That's right - shot! Luckily, a nearby team from maintenance caught up to it and smashed it with a pipe wrench before it could chase Pat down. Now it'll be days before he's ready to return to work and I don't think you'll ever get him close to one of those bots again.

Our jobs are difficult enough without needing to avoid getting shot. If we're going to be treated like prisoners, I respectfully request that you afford us the courtesy of being guarded by people instead of machines.

We've realized a full 50% gain in the storage capacity of ammo packs as a result of utilizing techniques engineered in the Alpha Labs molecular compactor. I believe with the ongoing compaction research we will reach our goal of 3 times the plasma storage currently available in standard ammo packs.

I would also like to mention that all of the employees here at EnPro Plant have been very helpful and quite eager to accommodate all of my requests. For security reasons I've locked the Plasma Gun and the extra ammo in Locker 063 with the door code 972. End of log.

Theresa,
Please take a few minutes in the next day or so to create an audio report based on your plasma storage findings. The board is looking forward to hearing about your accomplishments.

As you know, security has been tight lately with all the accidents and as a result we can't be too careful. Please make sure you lock up your test weapon and add the cabinet code into your report.

Great Job,

Hope you like your new office. I think you'll find it much easier to concentrate on the plasma gun project without those dweebs in engineering drooling all over you. How pathetic, right?

Anyway I'll be down there from time to time if you ever want to talk or get something to eat. You're probably sick of hearing it, but I think seeing you every day is more valuable to me than any amount of money I've gotten from working here. Believe me, being a supervisor I make a lot!

Plasma Ammo Code
Steve Hammer, service technician. Since Private Swensen wigged out, shot up that drink machine and lit himself up with a Plasma Gun, we've all been a bit nervous. All of us in maintenance knew he was losing it. Finally when that darn drink machine wouldn't accept his credits, he lost it, started swearing up and down. You had to laugh when that machine lit up, but before any of us could react, he fed himself enough plasma to power an office building. There wasn't enough head to clean up, just vapor. It's a bad thing to happen to anyone.

Anyway, I know with all the psych problems we've had lately, we need the additional security, but when the guards start going nuts... I don't know. All this extra weapons and ammunition. I mean, do we really need so much firepower laying around? Well, a couple of us decided to lock up all the unsecured plasma rounds we could find. The code is 734. I think we'll all sleep a bit better tonight knowing it's locked up.

Note: According to the game files, the date is 10-30-2145.

Steve,
I'm still shaken from that incident with Swensen. When I close my eyes I still see that look on his face in the instant between the impact of the plasma, and when his head turned to blue vapor. I don't think I'll ever be able to sleep again.

I never liked him, I don't know who was crazy enough to give him a plasma gun, but no one should go that way. The worst of it is I've seen a lot of folks who seem more on edge than Swensen was. Something needs to be done.

We should lock up the ammo in one of the storage lockers for starters. You pick the code. Make sure you file a report too.

Unsafe Driving
This is the audio log of officer Ron Ridge, dated October 16th, 2145. Recent transport tunnel accidents are causing major headaches for both supply and maintenance. Each accident cost is an estimated 1 to 3 hour delay in what are mostly time sensitive shipments.

It's becoming evident that certain junctions need safety adjustments as well as recommitment to driving safety by all personnel. The EnPro to Comm Center route has shown the biggest increase in accidents over the past 6 months. Safety signs and improved lighting are needed throughout the main junctions over the stretch of tunnels and paths.

Absolutely no recreational vehicle passage should be allowed during peak hours. All personnel should use monorail travel whenever possible to keep cargo shipments flowing smoothly.

Module Replacement
This is the audio log of technician Seamus [-STATIC-] dated October 16th, 2145. Our relatively new remote module replacement procedures are taking some time for maintenance technicians to adjust to. In the long run it's a much safer, quicker and easier method.

Once a technician receives a call he simply locates the problem module and gives a replacement command through the remote terminal located in the Main Comm block. This will initiate the replacement procedure as well as create a repair report which notifies the repair team of an incoming module so minor repairs can be done on site with normal equipment.

I'm hoping the new system will need less and less use once the source of the recent power fluctuations is located and solved. System is built to handle most other things with its automated recovery systems.

HAZMAT Response
This is the audio log of Nicholas Sadowayj, member of UAC Mars HAZMAT response team, dated October 1st, 2145. We have concluded that the Martian atmosphere is wreaking havoc on the exhaust valve seals in the standard number 5 disposal drums.

The engineers cannot explain the high levels of contaminants in our internal atmosphere. The air scrubbers and filtration systems all seem to be operating at normal levels. Yet, a small layer of particulate is making it into the storage areas. That is what caused the lockdown yesterday.

EAP director Charles Hollies informs me that the personnel won't be harmed by these contaminants in the air but we've seen that they do cause a corrosive reaction when introduced to the rubber compounds used in the storage systems. Effective immediately, all number 5 disposal drums must be locked away in at least a class 2 rated transport medium. Assessment ends.

It is very important that you remember to store toxic waste barrels in their proper location.

Magnetic Lock Repairs
This is the audio log of engineer Sam Harding, dated April 5th, 2145. I have just completed repairs on the magnetic locks and I've significantly reprogrammed the pressure sensors on the Monorail system. My fellow engineers and I are confident that the accident of last week will never happen again.

The accident should never have happened in the first place. The internal sensors led the computers to believe that there was a vacuum inside the vehicle. Unfortunately, the computer decided that the only way to fix this pressure discrepancy was to open all doors in an attempt to equalize pressure with the outside.

In going over 15,000 lines of code today, I can see no reason for this tragic event to have occurred. But somehow the logs show the discrepancy as clear as day. Honestly, this looks to me like another case of a solid system going to hell in a hand basket.

I'm confident that the layers of protection I added to the code today will prevent any such occurrences from happening again. I'm off to meet engineer Jim Torbin at the access doors to Delta Complex platform to try to troubleshoot a faulty track sensor that's been causing the door to stick.

Additional Security Needed
Date: 11-09-2145
From: Mathew Gaiser

Mr. Cullen,

We are going to be transporting a large specimen from Delta. Normally we would not be using the Monorail, but we need to get it to Phobos Lab and this is our only option.

The specimen will be sedated, however given both the importance and the hazardous nature of it, we feel it is prudent to have an enhanced security presence. You and your men should be prepared with full armor and plasma guns. However, lethal force should be only used as a last resort. Bringing this thing alive through the teleporter cost seven men their lives and it would be a shame to waste that effort.

Also, as you know there are plenty of rumors about our specimens. I do not want this to get out of control. Information about this transport must be kept to only those that need to know what is in the container.

Thank you for your cooperation in this.

Engineer Placement
This is the audio log of Robert Price, Delta operational director in charge of personnel, recruitment, evaluation and placement. Assignment of engineers to the lower Delta labs has become almost impossible. In 6 months we've gone from a volunteer surplus to a critical deficiency of qualified personnel willing to accept assignment. Increases in both pay and benefits have done little to help this situation.

Through exit interviews as well as the weekly Delta medical brief, it's become apparent to everyone that the rate of sudden and unexplained mental illness is way beyond acceptable levels, even for Mars. They're derogatorily being called Sub Delts up here and I have a feeling this attitude will spread to other parts of the UAC. End of log.

Mr. Mora,
Your complaint has been filed with Central Authority, they will be handling your case from this point forward.

As the engineer responsible for the Reactor Upper Level Maintenance, I feel it necessary to bring the current safety issues to your attention. If we are going to be required to take readings from the upper level while the reactor is online then there will eventually be accidents. I recommend remote sensors be used for these readings and that the upper level be closed while the Reactor is online.

Sincerely,
Brian Mora

Audio Logs[edit]

Observation of Science Personnel
This is the audio log of medical supervisor Peter Raleigh, dated October 29th, 2145. We have exhausted all known forms of drug treatment in hopes of finding a way to abate this strange outbreak of dementia and I have yet to receive any additional data from the psychiatrists back on Earth. Options are quickly dwindling.

Approximately 80% of all extra planar participants exhibit signs of mild neurosis within the first 48 hours after returning from their expeditions. Within 72 hours, 75% of patients exhibit extreme signs of paranoid delusion and violence.

We have isolated these cases in hopes of finding the pathogen. As yet we can find no biological contaminants that would lead to such drastic changes in cognitive processing. It seems that whatever this pathogen is, it attacks higher brain functions and only leaves more basal functions in the lower brain stem.

We've witnessed a high percentage of subjects lose ability for rational thought and communication skills and then the physical changes become evident. Subjects in this group appear to atrophy - skin pales; muscles become slack; bone, teeth and fingernails become almost translucent, veiny sinews of their former selves. I have never seen anything like this in my career. Our observations continue.


Death of Steve Jensen
This is the audio log of medical supervisor Peter Raleigh, dated November 1st, 2145. Patient 0432, a Private Steve Jensen of the UAC Darklight Armored Corp Division expired today at 15:43 of a self inflicted gunshot wound. This is approximately 110 hours after his return from expeditionary missions.

Private Jensen was suffering from paranoid delusions and full blown dementia. Treatment was unsuccessful. He was the last surviving member of his outfit, four other squad mates who also came back with Private Jensen expired from injuries suffered on that last mission shortly after their return.

Before his death Private Jensen was heard screaming in both English and other languages, something about demon hordes feasting on our souls. The other language was later discovered to be Aramaic. Due to security concerns in the area I have secured some armaments within my office.

NOTE: The statement that Jensen's death occurred 110 hours (approximately 4.5 Earth days) after returning from his last expedition may be an error, as videos in the medical bay show that Jensen's dementia went as far back as 10/18/2145, and imply that it may have been going on for weeks.

As requested, the following is my initial feedback on my first trip through the portal. Private First Class Frank Cinders, dated October 15th, 2145. I uh, hmm. I don't know exactly where to begin.

Obviously I survived the first trip and feel no worse for wear. I'm not experiencing any of the symptoms reported by the others who have gone in before me but I am at a point where I'm still trying to process everything.

Thankfully the place looks deserted and devoid of any life, but, uh, the flames, and heat, and stench of the place... It smells of death, decay and burnt flesh.

Tomorrow we're going back in with some of the eggheads, um, science division to start securing forward positions and we expect to start sending out the mapping droids at the same time.

I feel, I must admit, on a personal note, that I've got a really bad feeling about this. I don't understand what we're doing there or what we hope to prove. PFC Cinders, signing off.

Audio log for Phil Wilson, medical technician, Delta Labs, October 20th, 2145. Today I witnessed the 3rd test to the teleporter in three weeks that I've been here. Volunteers are becoming harder and harder to come by and heh, it isn't difficult to see why. They all come back screaming like loons about demons, pools of blood, real fire and brimstone stuff.

At first I wasn't paying much attention, just doing my job, but... the last was Robert Clayton. Now I met him my first day here. This guy chews up rocks and spits out gravel, he's tough as they come. Having to sedate him and drag his drooling body to the isolation room has really freaked me out.

Audio Logs[edit]

Soul Cube as a Weapon
Uh, this is the audio log of research director Larry Bullman, October 19th, 2145. I've been examining the glyphs on the cube sharped artifact which some are calling the Soul Cube and combined with previous research data it is my conclusion the device is some sort of weapon. If the power fluctuations would stop long enough for me to get the linguistic CPU online then I am sure my theory would be verified.

You know, I'll take this opportunity to lodge yet another complaint about the continual power problems. Living in this god forsaken base is bad enough without having to watch the lights flicker constantly, it's just well, never mind, back to the task at hand.

What I've deciphered so far is a bit, I must say, disturbing. It seems that when one has possession of the artifact, if one inflicts damage or possibly kills another being, it extracts power from that event somehow and once a certain threshold has been reached, the artifact has the ability to kill anything you attack with it. How you attack with it I'm frankly not certain, indicating that the artifact is autonomous in some way.

To date I have only deciphered about um, two thirds, give or take of the markings but my initial glance at the rest of them indicates it harbors some far greater power. As you know, at this time we have not seen any reaction from the cube and it has withstood any scanning, abrasion or other test beyond picking it up and examining it. I suspect like the civilization that constructed it, its capabilities are diminished to the point of being useful only as a paperweight. End of log.

It is a weapon!
Date: 11-14-2145
From: Ian McCormick

Larry,
You were correct, the Soul Cube is a weapon. I've translated the glyphs and now I understand how it works!

The Soul Cube must be charged before it can be used. The souls within it must sense at least five deaths before the spiritual potentiality matrix reaches positronic astriction. Based on our interpretation of the glyphs, the Cube has a way of acknowledging its readiness for action, but it's unclear how this happens. More importantly, we still don't know what will happen when it's released.

This has gone way beyond the purview of Mars station or even the UAC. We can't trust Betruger, he's gone mad! I'm preparing a report to send to the highest authorities on Earth.

Good luck and God help us.

Audio Logs[edit]

Personal Audio Log
This is the personal audio log of Dr. Frank Cerano, dated September 19th, 2145. I've been brainstorming on Betruger's thoughts about achieving sustained, uninterrupted transfers for the teleportation units.

Currently our systems can only build enough of a charge to have the portals open for approximately 10 to 15 seconds. It's enough time to get a team through but not enough time to send in some of the heavier equipment.

Engineering in the EnPro facility inform me that we can theoretically boost the active portal time to 45 seconds quite easily, but this will require rerouting power from Central Processing and we just can't afford the downtime.

Power requirements for this system are astronomical. We're sucking power from three veins in EnPro just to power chamber 1. I have no idea how we can sustain transfers for longer than 60 seconds without giving serious thoughts of reorganizing the teleport power grid. I'll sleep on this. This is Dr. Frank Cerano signing off.

Expedition Team Report
This is the audio log of administrative assistant Han Lee, dated October 16th, 2145. Why is it that I keep getting the crummy jobs? Armor Corp, First Platoon and First Science Team were completely wiped out this morning on their second excursion... and I am the one in charge of writing up their reports and sending this information back to Earth next of kin.

[Sigh] So here I am... first cup of coffee for the day. Five hours of sleep the night before, no shower and I have 20 dead bodies to fill out paperwork on. I haven't seen their actual corpses but word coming down from the grapevine says it looks like they have been hacked up pretty good. This has everyone on the base spooked. Betruger is nowhere to be found and there are a lot questions being asked and no answers from anyone.

Last I heard they are suiting up the next outfit with the new BFGs. Sounds like they aren't taking any chances on this next trip with them packing that kind of firepower.


Missing BFG Guns
This is the audio log of administrative assistant Han Lee, dated October 20th, 2145. Just when I thought this job couldn't get much worse, it did. Delta Science sent another group of researchers through the portal two days ago and they failed to return at their scheduled time. Radio transmissions to the research party have gone unanswered. Even our LZ tracking systems can't find them. We fear that they are dead.

Losing lives is one thing but losing our proprietary technologies is another. The team was equipped with the newest BFG weaponry. We fear those guns may have fallen into the hands of those that killed them. We don't know who or what is behind that portal, but until we find out where our guns are I'm suggesting we suspend operations through the portal. Thank you, end of log.

Personal Audio Log

This is the audio log of Dr. Marten Shultz, dated August 7, 2145. We need to amend the operating procedures to ensure all target teleport markers are properly are set and locked before engaging the systems. We had a tragic accident today in chamber 1 that led to the death of Susan, one of our female chimps. She stepped onto the platform during the calibration phase and an electrical short engaged the system and literally split her in two. Her torso appeared at the destination marker while her lower extremities remained in place on the source pad.

I'm not sure how we've gone this long without this problem appearing sooner but it seems like we've been having nothing but difficulties getting these systems to work. I don't know where Betruger finds the energy. He's been busy slaving away in the labs for 16 hours a day trying to debug these latest problems. What's he trying to do? Make the rest of us working stiff look bad?

Heh... Regardless, we have our work cut out for us over the next couple of days going over all the systems logs to see exactly what went wrong with this round of tests. Dr. Marten Shultz signing off, hoping to report better news next time.

Our systems can only build enough of a charge to have the portals open for approximately 10 to 15 seconds. Enough time to get a team through, but not enough time to send in some of the heavier equipment. Do you have any idea how we can route supplemental power from the stabilizers into the converters? I think if we can increase the hold field by 13% we could achieve full transfer power and open the field for a longer amount of time.

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

I can't raise anyone on the Comm links and the only signs of the team I can find are tools and other personal effects that seem to be left behind, almost as if they had stopped working midway through one of the experiments.

Oh dear God, what has happened to us? The teeth, that's the last thing I remember seeing, teeth, the sounds, words cannot describe. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before they find me again. I'm convinced they are toying with me, allowing me to stay two steps ahead of them.

Expedition Expectations

From: Heather Elaine

Simon,
As you know, you have been assigned to Expedition 14A-2. There are several goals we hope your team will be able to meet while on expedition. Since you are familiar with the discovered tablets, we would like you to find cooperative evidence on the other side of the Main Portal - similar writings of any kind should be photographed and collected.

Primarily, we are looking to capture several more bio-specimens. Having already collected many of the smaller 'Imp' creatures, we would like to bring back one of the larger ones, described by others as a 'Hell-Knight'. Previous expeditions have reported seeing them at the Main Portal destination, where you will be arriving. You will have several weapons with you, but we ask that you attempt to use non-lethal force, we would really like to have a live specimen if possible.

Finally, traveling through the portal has caused varied reactions. For our records we would like you to keep an audio log of everything you experience for us to later analyze.

I hope you have a safe trip.

In preparation for your 'jump' next week, I wanted to inform you of another tasklist item we need to cover. Since the Main Portal has not been operational for a few weeks, we have not had time to follow up on some of the physiological reports. While on the other side of the portal, pay close attention to your stamina while working and moving around. Many individuals have reported a lack of being tired, and some work constantly without the need for rest. One of the teams has called it 'the hercules complex'. Anyhow, to help us further our study, please record any additional information related to this phenomenon.

This is the audio log of Counselor Elliot Swann, dated November 15th, 2145. This entire research facility is in chaos. There's at least a 90% death rate among civilian personnel. Whatever Betruger unleashed is literally consuming the base. People have been turned into some sort of undead creatures that are relentless.

Campbell and I are making our way towards the communications facility. We must stop all communications. If a distress call leaves the base, then everyone here and on Earth is doomed.

Heading to the Caverns
This is the audio log of Counselor Elliot Swann, dated November 16th, 2145. Campbell and I were unable to reach the main portal in the Delta Complex, but that portal may be inconsequential to a more disturbing discovery. We have uncovered reference to another portal, created by the demons themselves. A passageway between Hell and Mars. We suspect it resides within the cavern somewhere near the archeological dig.

Dear Counselor Swann,

The Board has unanimously approved a resolution for a full operations review of the Mars Research Facility. You've been designated as our official representative in this matter and we suggest full preparation begin today.

We expect a complete appraisal of all research developments. Both current and future directions must be brought inline with the Board's expectations. We must be able to control Dr. Betruger. His extra-dimensional research is a potential risk to the teleportation experimentation, which we can not afford. The Board considers teleportation the UAC's single most important scientific endeavor and is not willing to jeopardize its dominance in this area of research.

Anticipate a formal briefing and itinerary in the next few days.

Sincerely,
UAC Board Chairman

I was pleased to hear of the Board's decision to have you investigate the current state of the UAC on Mars. I've become more and more worried about Dr. Betruger's research direction and my hope is that this intervention will bring much needed changes. I've also learned that I've been reassigned by Dr. Betruger to a post back on Earth. Although this is disappointing I do fear for my own safety and sanity if I were to stay here.

I hope your intervention won't be too late. I look forward to meeting with you back on Earth once your visit is concluded.

Audio Logs[edit]

Lab A Security Door
This is the audio log for Tony Bates, Mars Security IT Division, September 25th, 2145. I spent the last four hours going through the code for the door systems here in Central Processing. This is proving to be a real bitch of a glitch to work out.

I've traced through every system I can think of and access to Lab A continues to be problematic for the time being. All the regular access codes seem to be working fine, but the database will not allow access rights to be granted to new visitors.

In the meantime, I'm adding a backdoor code into the systems for IT staff and the eggheads, so if they need access to Lab A while the systems are on the fritz, they can use the code 627 to bypass door security. End of log.

Network Security Breach
This is the audio log for Tony Bates, Mars Security IT Division, October 15th, 2145. I've resumed my investigation into Case A-10982, the systems intrusion that took place in the CPU Complex yesterday. All network traces seem to originate from an old system located in Site 2, Office S2-038.

What is truly troubling is that engineering informs me electrical systems have been offline in that section for years, and were only re-activated this morning in order to prepare more storage space. I'm completely stumped on this one. How does a hack originate from a section of the base that has been out of commission for so long? I will make another report once I've personally investigated the suspect office in Site 2. End of log.

Security Concerns
Date: 10-22-2145
From: Brian Franko

Mr. Bates,

I am concerned about the lax security measures that you have implemented in Lab A. I have received numerous reports now, about your team-members flagrantly disregarding security procedures, and posting the daily security codes on the data-boards.

With corporate bringing by so many investors lately, you need to stay more vigilant in maintaining security in the lab. The last thing we need is more people wandering around, unsupervised, with all the odd goings-on lately.

Thank you

-Brian Franko

Tony,

I've had a chance to run the formulas you provided us. The results have been uploaded to your mailbox.

Please pay particular note to page 12, section F, part 2. The left side of the graph is showing unusual spikes over the last 3 weeks, which can only be explained by unauthorized access to the EnPro power grid.

It's not possible to attain the figures you have shown, without exceeding power limits for your areas.

This should probably be reported to Dr. Betruger at once.

This is the audio log of Charlie Haskell, Delta Labs Technician, dated September 23rd, 2145. We're making good progress and increasing the max range of Chamber 3 in the Delta Complex. We've been crunching numbers all night and feel that with a few slight modifications, we should be able to boost output to cover all of Delta.

The latest scheduled changes are wreaking havoc on our current systems, and it's not uncommon to see system utilization at 99% for days at a time. We understand that Lab A has finally received the Enrex 6809 systems. Please consider this a formal request for a block of two hours to run our latest formulas at the soonest available time.

Audio Logs[edit]

Discovery in the Ruins
This is the scientific journal of Dr. Richard Davis, dated August 8th, 2145. We've just broken through to a new chamber, and I think I've found the map alluded to on one of the tablets. The artifact is constructed into the ceiling and it is a magnificent find.

It appears to be made of some crystalline material, and even after all this time, it is still emitting a soft glow. The markings on it were strangely familiar when I first observed it, and after digitizing it and analyzing it, I'm certain this is a map of our solar system. It seems to show a connection between Mars and Earth.

My current working theory is that the last survivors used the teleportation technology to escape to Earth. The ramifications of this are overwhelming. This may end up proving that we are actually descendants of this race, and what we are exploring is our own history. I am going to report my findings as soon as we finish the excavation, and they should show up in Corporate within a few days. These are truly exciting times. Log out.

Mr. Davis,

I received word of your discovery. Very impressive start, but I am not yet convinced. Do not lose sight of the bigger picture. We still have a lot of work to do before any of these findings will be ready for distribution or publication. Analysis must continue on the remaining artifacts.

Your audio reports in the future need to be more analytical and less emotional. It is important that we all maintain our professionalism and do not become biased or too attached to our work. I do not want to remind you of this again.

Continue to forward me your findings, and I will help you manage the reports so as not to give Corporate the wrong impression.

Ruins safety concerns
Date: 10-16-2145
From: Lowell Foshay

Hey Dick,

The structural integrity of the Ruins is deteriorating. Our initial rock form and in-ground analyses prior to deep ground exploration inferred no immediate dangers. In fact, the Ruins structure itself was determined to be very sound.

As you already know, expansive underground digs of this nature are an engineering nightmare. The heightened pressure to open up the primary dig site was a dangerous oversight. Just recently, one of our engineers, Peter, got crushed by a falling brick - yup those huge stones lining the entire wall and ceiling of the Ruins!

Some of the guys are mumbling about the walls being alive or something, but you and I know it's just the horizontal stretching of the regional tectonic stresses. Heh, stones... alive... spoooooky. I think we all need a long vacation.

Anyway, watch your step and don't forget to look up once in a while.

Foshinator out!


Tablets are key

Richard,

I thank you for your industrious support of the work being conducted here. I've been compiling your data along with mine and have made some startling new discoveries. I firmly believe your work with the tablets are the key to solving the mysterious relationship between the Soul Cube, the Ancients, and us.

I am sending word to the Executive Council for an immediate increase of our research budget. I have a strange feeling that we must find the answer soon or... no, I dare not say it just yet.

I will contact you post-haste with any news regarding our funding.

The Soul Cube is the Answer
This is the audio log of Dr. Pierce Rogers. I don't know if I'll make it off the base alive. I don't have much time, so I'll sum up what I have quickly and upload the rest of my finding into the databank. I hope someone finds them.

It was all on the stone tablets, all the answers. I can't believe we never saw it. It was as plain as day. If we had only slowed down the development of the teleporters, and tried to really learn what the tablets were trying to tell us, trying to warn us.

The ancient people battled the same demons that are attacking us now. The demons came through the teleporters that they built, just like now. They created the Soul Cube and used it to stop the demons, to drive them back to Hell. I don't know how, but that must be the answer. That is why that artifact was left behind, left for someone to find if something like that ever happens again.

I can't reach Delta from here. I won't make it. I truly hope and pray someone finds the Soul Cube, and it helps.

Lord help us. End of log.

Scanner Results
Date: 10-17-2145
From: Richard Davis

Pierce,

The scanner results for the ceiling carvings are back and I can say without a doubt that this is a map of our solar system. There's a very clear indication that Earth may have been a possible teleport destination for the survivors of this race. If the dates on these artifacts are correct there's a distinct possibility that we could be descendents of this race!

I can barely comprehend how immense this is. All the struggles we've had in the past year have suddenly become trivial.

Richard

Betruger is mad and things have gone worse than you could have imagined. Now your banishment from Mars has become a blessing in disguise. It has likely saved your life. You must get the word out.

Dangerous Conditions in the Caverns
Audio report regarding dangerous working conditions in caverns below Delta. This is Bob Cody. Today is October 18th, 2145. My crew has been rewiring the generators as ordered for the last several days. We can't finish the work. We're stopping after today. This job ain't worth dying for. We'll be collecting our gear and tying down what we can.

We call them howlers, because that's how they start. First the howling gets louder, the screaming, then shaking Earth, er, Mars quakes, throws everything around. Makes walkin' on the catwalks impossible, and workin' with voltage... well, stupid.

The noises have some of the guys spooked, and, and I don't blame 'em. Nothing natural about what we've heard. If someone can figure out what's causing the howlers, I'll get the crew to finish the job. 'til then, we'll be available for a new assignment tomorrow.

To all members of the Site 1 Expedition:

I just wanted to take a moment to welcome you to this most important mission. All of you volunteered and I want to tell you how much I appreciate you doing so. It is difficult to be away from friends and family for so long and we all miss Earth's blue skies, green grass, and most of all, breathable fresh air.

However, the opportunity we have here is historic. I believe we are on the precipice of an archeological find of profound proportions that will forever change not only our view of Mars and the ancient civilization that once inhabited it, but also how we see ourselves in the cosmos.

Like all things worthwhile, this expedition will not be easy but we will do everything we can to make it as pleasant and safe as possible. Please adhere to all safety procedures that were presented in-flight and report any problems or issues immediately to your supervisors.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,
Dr. Elizabeth McNeil

Up until now we hadn’t seen any artifacts in what must have been their original state. There seems to be some sort of defensive mechanism in place attacking those godforsaken creatures. Why did the gate open?

The amount of chaos and movement within is new to all of us, all of us that are left... Our team leader didn’t make it. He was pinned down by something. What it was I can’t even describe. The best bet is to seal this place up and get the hell out of here. It’s happened again... I can’t believe it’s happened again. The lying bastards! We didn’t come here for this- NO! NO! ARRRRGH-

Storage Cabinets
Audio log for lab technician Bernard Fresko, dated 1-12-2147. As requested by the Security Division I have changed the code for storage cabinet 042 to 714. Not sure why it’s so important to change these damn codes every time new personnel arrive. It’s not like... [sigh] never mind.

I’ve cleaned and stored all of the equipment in preparation for the upcoming expedition. Hopefully the next team won’t encounter what happened on the previous trip. What a mess. It's no wonder there are fewer volunteers each time. I guess the extra pay just isn’t worth it to some people.

Admittedly I'm extremely curious about the entire jump process and wonder what it would be like to join one of the teams. Hell, who am I trying to kid? Even if I was qualified I'm not sure I'd have the balls to go through with it anyhow.

All,

Please be courteous in the lounge when drinking the free soda in the refrigerator. UAC headquarters was kind enough to grant the research department shipments of free soda for all of us to share . Lately, I have noticed (and others have complained) that the supply of soda in the fridge begins to run low just hours after it has been restocked. Please limit yourself to one or two cans a day so there is enough for everyone. If this problem persists we will be forced to stop the shipments of free soda everyone will have to use the vending machines.

Thank you!

Auxiliary Power Update
This is the audio log of Chief Allen Rhodes, October 12, 2145. Well, we made significant progress with the field coupler this week. If my calculations are correct this should provide a considerable boost to the converter's output. I just wish Meyers wasn't so damn pushy about this project of his. Well, to be fair it's actually Betruger's project. Meyers is just trying to follow orders and do his job... Anyhow, what we are doing is extremely complex and requires us to be firing on all cylinders. Expanding all the transference data from Delta has been a very difficult process. What he's proposing requires the full use of a single grid array. I'm just glad we have the entire auxiliary unit to work with. My hope is within the next few weeks, we will be able to prime the main array in parallel and have the auxiliary working in sufficient capacity for the folks over in Exis Labs. And... uh, I think that's all I've got for now. Allen Rhodes signing off.

Personal Update
Uh, Chief Allen Rhodes, November 15th, 2145. The situation here in Sector One is bad. Shortly after getting the auxiliary grid synched with the main array, we experienced a huge power surge... and, uh, the, uh, the output readings are nominal which, uh, leads me to conclude that it's not the auxiliary core. It-it sounds like a problem with the main array. Regardless, I... started hearing screams and gunfire over one of the channels just before our communications went down.

Well, we have been trying desperately to get in touch with Meyers over in Exis to see what he knows. Several of my technicians have not reported back yet, and my senior technician described... described a bloodbath near a coolant transfer zone. Following that transmission his radio went dead and I've not heard from him since. A few of my other technicians reported seeing strange... creatures appearing out of thin air and... None of them have reported back yet.

The rest of my team and myself have barricaded ourselves in a control room here in Sector One, and we will continue trying to get communications working, but I don't know how much longer we can stay here. I'll update soon... Chief Rhodes, signing off.

Ahem. Chris Vargas, November 5th, 2145. Our initial testing on the primary alignment module indicated excessive stress fracturing. I immediately ordered the team to discontinue the tests, and they've been working around the clock to repair the damaged module. Testing will resume once the unit's back online and I'm pretty confident we'll be ready for next week's load test for Chief Rhodes. I have also been asked to help Rhodes with the number-crunching going on with the transfer data, which I hope to be finished with soon, provided interruptions are at a minimum. Huh. Interruptions. Like the one earlier this week when Dave Voss, our security officer, insisted I change the code yet again for the cabinet displaying the shotgun my brother sent to me. [scoffs] Not like I actually use the damn thing. I don't know... maybe the guy's just anal about code regulations.

Sr. Technician Anders,
After recent events, it was decided to limit access to all storage cabinets to senior level staff. The access codes for the storage cabinets have also been reset. At this point, the company is taking whatever steps are necessary to prevent another incident. Our hope is that these measures will be temporary.

A complete inventory of supply cabinet #108 has been recorded. The access code has been reset to 847 in accordance with the new regulations. We are leaving it up the senior staff to determine if any further incidents are severe enough to risk distribution of emergency supplies.

Audio Logs[edit]

Latest Assaults By Exis Staff

This is Nasi Adil, security chief for the Exis Labs facility - Log Entry November 3, 2145. We are seeing an increasing level of random and unexplained violence by Exis staff. The first incident occurred on October 13th, 2145 at the Exis surface tunnel. One of the construction workers, Bill Sanders, was offloading a shipment of steel supports when a procurement manager stopped him. In the heated conversation that followed, Sanders grabbed a nearby pickaxe and lunged at the manager. Luckily the argument beforehand generated a sizable crowd, and when Sanders attacked the manager, a number of men were able to subdue him.

When we questioned Sanders afterwards he seemed to have developed short-term amnesia. He-he didn't remember why he got so upset and attacked the manager. He only recalled stopping his loader, and then moments later waking in the holding cell. [Sighs] Since that event we have seen arguments progress more and more from heated shouting matches straight into outright brawls. The antagonists in these incidents all display the same conditions, as if they were suddenly possessed by violent anger, and then afterwards returned to normal.

We have only one serious life-threatening case so far, where engineer Leon Powell was stabbed multiple times. I fear this is not the worst of our troubles, and have requested additional security personnel posted at critical junctions. To assist in any immediate medical need, I have resupplied storage cabinet 965 with the accompanying code of 428. Sergeant Nasir Adil out.


Upcoming VIP Visit

Nasir Adil, personal log dated November 12th, 2145. I have just received word from Central Authority that the UAC representative Counselor Elliot Swann will be arriving in a few days from Earth. The-the report states that he will be reviewing all sectors of Mars City including Exis Labs. [Sighs] I'm not sure that's a good idea in light of the recent events we've had here. The violent assaults that seem to plague Exis Labs have caused the civilian staff to be pretty wary of one another. And now to top it all off - missing weapons! The cabinets in the security checkpoints were fully stocked two days ago, and now half the weapons are gone! I-I don't know how this situation occurred, but my marines swear no one has access to the cabinet except for them. I've ruled out those assigned to me and other security personnel. But I can't figure out who else has those codes.

To sum up: This is a bad situation. Turning worse every day. My recent request for more manpower in Exis Labs was denied. It seems other sectors of Mars City are stretched thin, and the small reserves at the base are already allocated. I needed to have faith in my current detachment of marines that they will turn things around. I'll talk to Central again and see if Counselor Swann can bypass Exis. The last thing I want is some staff worker with a sudden episode of dementia murdering a VIP. I'm having enough problems trying to keep everyone here from killing each other. [Sighs] Sergeant Nasir Adil, signing off.

Mars Base Review
From: Elliot Swann
Date: 11-13-2145

Sgt. Adil,

I've been made aware of your concerns regarding my upcoming visit. This trip is highly important to UAC management, and I will need to review Exis Labs as part of my on-site itinerary. I understand there have been a number of incidents at Exis, and part of my trip is to uncover the cause. Please do everything necessary to ensure adequate security. I have forwarded information to Mars-Sec executive staff to assist your armory and personnel needs.

Also, let me assure you I have made additional precautions for my personal safety.

Sincerely,

Elliot Swann
UAC Executive Counsel

Additional Security Request
From: Chase Higgins
Date: 10-09-2145

Chief Adil,

I'd like to see if we could have some extra security stationed around Engineering. The guys and I are seeing strange behavior around the Particle Exchanger, and it's really creeping us out. Yesterday, Morgan almost lost it and I had to spend 20 minutes calming him down. He swore he saw a huge bloody eyeball stare at him through the glass shielding. We checked the area afterwards and found nothing. The sooner you can send security up here the better.

Thanks,

Chase Higgins

New Space Suits Delivery

This is the Dmitry Lebedev, supply manager for the Exis Labs facility. Entry dated October 6, 2145. I've received the latest shipment of MK7 space suits from Earth today. They've a triple weave of titanium mesh on the outer layer for classified excursions. With the ongoing construction requiring additional EVA time on the Martian surface, these new suits should hold up better. In the last two months we've had a number of unexplained suit decompressions resulting in fatalities. In the case of Technician Mike Stanley, the decompression was so rapid the resulting implosion caused him to almost liquify and fuse with the suit's interior. If it wasn't for his suit's name tag, eh, there wouldn't be much to identify him.

In each case, the penetrations and loss of pressure appear to occur from inside the suit rather than out. I can attest these suits were thoroughly inspected and micro-scanned after the incidents and no material degradations were found. Per UAC EVA regulations, the suits before the accidents were properly stored and locked away to prevent any mishandling. I also followed up with the technicians on ensuring the suit's had the necessary pre-EVA checklist before anyone reaches the Martian atmosphere. I'm hoping the new suits will address the issue. Each suit lost this way just means more paperwork for me...

Along with the new suit shipment, we received additional medical supplies. I've placed the extra packs in the storage cabinet 071 with the access code of 532. Dmitry Lebedev, end of log.

Is it a weapon or what?
From: Steve Bryant
Date: 10-18-2145

D,

What's the deal with the tight security over there in Exis? I asked one of the technicians what's going on, and he wouldn't say. There's a number of people here who speculate it's some kinda of massive weapon, or teleporter. I figured you would know something, since you see all the supplies enter the sector. Maybe you could sneak me inside one of the shipping crates so I could get in and take a look. :)

Thanks

Steve

Joel,

I got a strange delivery this morning here in the Service Tunnel. My assistant was ripping open boxes for some new space suits, and found these toys. No receipt, nothing. So, we opened a couple of them looking for a name, and they broke after about two minutes. Figured you could glue the broken ones and send them to your kid.

Mr. Lebedev,
I just found out the procurement department misshipped my order of exclusive DragGonFeets action figures to Exis Labs. Please whatever you do, DO NOT let anyone open the packaging on them. They're in mint condition, and very expensive. I can't leave until my shift is over, but I'll be over there shortly to pick them up.

Sincerely,
George Earling

Construction Update
Travis Folsom, construction supervisor for the Exis Labs facility. We recently reached substantial completion on the facility's engineering sector and began work on the environmental systems sector early. At this rate, we should be able to impress the big boys over at Central Authority and score our completion bonuses. Heh. Last week I reviewed the construction documents and found another item that we can cut costs. My glass subcontractor mentioned the Moxim pressure seals for the exterior windows can be replaced with much cheaper Mixom seals. I submitted the alternative materials selection to the base architect for review. On our Tuesday progress meeting, he argued the Mixom seals aren't up to spec. [scoffs] He complained that those seals are inferior and could cause air leaks or glass blowouts - what the hell's he know? Pencil-neck brass thinks he's designing a fancy hotel. Hey, guess what? I was building shit before he was born!

Anyway, I managed to get the Mixom seals ordered. I bypassed the architect and talked directly to Corporate. I showed them the savings and that sealed the deal. We'll be installing the exterior windows in Environmental in a week and he will never know the difference. I'm so convinced the glass and seals will hold up, that I'm gonna take a rocket launcher and test it on those windows, need be. That'll show the stupid architect. Heh. Folsom out.

Unstable Site Conditions
From: Andy Cavazos
Date: 10-22-2145

Mr. Folsom,
A number of foundation piers at Exis Research sector collapsed today. It occurred during another short but powerful quake in the area... the third this month. We've talked to Civil about existing terrain conditions, and they're just as perplexed. Mars should have no seismic activity at all! Geologically, it's all dead! The team will re-excavate the piers tomorrow and hopefully get back on track.

Formal Complaint Against Cons...

This is Bernice Tooley, Operations Coordinator, stationed in Exis Labs. I would like to file my third formal complaint to Central Authority about the problems with the work environment here in Exis. It has become increasingly difficult to be productive while construction is going on throughout the facility. The construction workers are rude, lack common courtesies, and are overtly sexist! They use our office space as an unauthorized shortcut and track dirt and debris as a result! In addition to their mess, they insist on drilling and hammering during our core staff hours. Some of them have repeatedly made inappropriate comments that clearly fall [sigh] under sexual harassment. When I approached the construction supervisor to remedy the situation, he told me in no uncertain terms to mind my own business. Actually, his exact words were: 'Don't worry your pretty little head about it.'

We are already on edge with the unexplained events occurring around the facility, and to add this insult to our tight schedule is too much to bear! [sigh] If I cannot persuade Central Authority to take this complaint seriously, I'd like to remind them of Section 20, Paragraph 9 of UAC Facility Regulations Code. It clearly states to our employee rights, and we do not need this nonsense. I suggest you reprimand the individuals responsible and take adequate measures to ensure it doesn't happen again. Do not make me log additional complaints! [grumbles] Bernice Tooley, signing off.


Emergency Situation in Operations

Uh, I hope this thing is working. Um, something is happening here and no one knows what's going on. The power is going crazy. We can't communicate with Central Administration, and-and I've heard something... something like screams... Uh, I don't know... It-it was so disturbing.

Ok, my assistant left me and I'm all alone here. Um, ok... I'm going to try to get the network working, but systems are acting just... crazy. I don't know what to do. I think I, uh- [loud banging sound] What was that? [sound of an Imp roaring] Oh God! [Imp roars again] No! NOOOOO-!!! [blood splattered]

Exis Staff and Schedule
From: Eric Nelson
Date: 10-24-2145

Ms. Tooley,

I've just submitted my monthly report to the Operations database for your review. Even if our numbers remain nominal, I believe we will again miss our milestones. This will be the third straight month in a row. I'm not sure how we're going to spin the results again to corporate back on Earth.

Currently the Exis staff is burnt out from doing double shifts to get the sector fully functional. Combined with the strange incidents, I believe we will have some real trouble on our hands here soon if we don't get more resources.

Sincerely,
Eric Nelson

Bernice,

You think you have it bad? I caught a bunch of technicians toying with the extra chainsaws in Communications Transfer the other day. What possesses them to do that stupid stuff? You'd think the ice cream socials I started last month would be the perfect outlet for employees.

Hi Harold,

You would not believe the idiots I have to work with here. Today, one of the staff got hold of a grabber gun and started flinging office chairs in Operations. I can't wait for the quarterly reviews to ream a couple of them.
