Artillery Battery InfoEdit

Transcript

Whenever the perimeter sensors pick up a mass of Scorched, Grant's wired up the Artillery Battery to spin up. The sensors aren't precise enough to use. A fire team with a spotter needs to go to the deployment zone and use a Recon Scope to mark enough targets for the batteries to fire.

Once the targets are marked, book it. The artillery will kill friends and foes alike.

Grant, Grant, GrantEdit

Transcript

So Grant shows up and starts running all over. Checking every room, the generator, the elevator, everything. It would be impressive if it weren't so exhausting.

Then Grant starts asking a million questions. How many breaches in the walls? How many doors? Unsecured windows? Then he says we're abandoning this whole wing and the first floor. Has he trekked up to the second floor?

But he says he can get the elevator running again. And even install some military security stuff Squire Weber found on a salvage run. So in one day everything we were planning for Fort Defiance is tossed out. Oh, except the name. That's the one thing Grant liked.

WHAT?Edit

Transcript

I was trading war stories with the guys on the roof last night. Then we saw the craziest thing. It was like some sort of bat flying in from Watoga, I guess. We thought there was nothing living over there, unless you count those murder bots.

But the thing flew straight towards us. So we opened up with the miniguns and I think we literally scared the crap out of it.

That was real, right? The Cranberry Bog's gotten so very, very strange.

First Week DownEdit

Transcript

The first floor's clear of ghouls. It's a disaster area, but with a little elbow grease we each have our own room. It's a little scary at night. The others weren't raised with stories about this place.

My guess is in a week or two we'll be ready for Scribe Grant and the others to come on over. The boys and I have started calling the place "Fort Defiance." Has a nice ring to it.

Last Plea for 099-01 (Draft)Edit

Transcript

TO: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
FROM: <Scr Grant>
SUBJ: Last Plea for 099-01

I'm not the Scribe you need. But 099-01 isn't my idea. It's the last message we got from those geniuses on the West Coast. We need to do this.

The Automated Research Program is solid. It can conduct iterative research on Scorchbeasts and find their weaknesses. Just two men could run the operation out of Vault-Tec University.

We may die, yes. But someone's got to figure out how to destroy these bastards once and for all. Don't make it so Taggerdy died in vain.

RE: Mission 099-01 URGENT!Edit

Transcript

TO: <Scr Grant>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: RE: Mission 099-01 URGENT!

We're in the trench we've dug, Grant. Telling everyone mistakes were made doesn't help.

Yes, we need to know more about Scorchbeasts. 099-01 is vital.

But let's say I pull out even two knights to run this mission - what happens then? Every time we spin up the Sonic Attractor it's a life or death struggle to keep a lid on the Scorchbeasts. Take out two people and we're dead. All of us. And if we die here Appalachia dies with us.

Focus that brain of yours on keeping those generators up. Getting us enough power if Thunder Mountain falls. Help us hold the line. We need you.

RE: Mission 099-01 Follow UpEdit

Transcript

TO: <Scr Grant>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: RE: Mission 099-01 Follow Up

We don't have the manpower to commit to 099-01. Look around. Taggerdy took our best with her on Touchdown. If they're not back yet, they're not coming back.

But the skies are clearing. We don't need to know more about the Scorchbeasts. They're dead. And a lot of that's because of your work. Be proud and rest easy, soldier.

RE: Mission 099-01Edit

Transcript

TO: <Scr Grant>
FROM: <Pldn Taggerdy, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: RE: Mission 099-01

099-01 was run once. And we lost good men. Another run at this does more than risk our Brothers and Sisters' lives. It risks turning the Responders into hostiles. We can't afford that now of all times.

I keep making allowances for your background, but we're a military outfit. You've made your case. It's been rejected. I don't want to hear another word about this.

Scribe TakanoEdit

Transcript

It may be awhile before I can write again. Working directly with Scribe Takano is... intimidating.

I've read so many of her articles in Tesla Science. Cutting edge research and theories. I don't know how Elder Maxson found her, but we're very fortunate.

I try to keep up with her. The schematics she sends, the terminal code, all of it. I know she has other Scribes helping her, but I just don't want to be the one dropping the ball.

I had a hard talk with the Paladin. I told her we need more Scribes, better Scribes. But I think I'm the only civilian she trusts. After Madigan and Fisher, I guess I can't blame her.

Making it homeEdit

Transcript

So I have a home and some people to help out. And Fort Defiance is shaping up, the elevator was the last piece of the puzzle. The hydraulics do need some extra work. Squire Belmonte was stuck in there for three hours. Oops.

For the longest time, I felt like I was the Brotherhood's pet mechanic. But things have been changing after Maxson talked about Scribes being important. About technology being one of our central missions. It's amazing, the old man gives a speech and almost overnight people are listening to me.

I've earned my place in the Brotherhood. It's nice to be recognized.

URGENT: Touchdown RecoveryEdit

Note: Accessing this command completes the quest Recruitment Blues.

Transcript

TO: <BoS Recovery Team>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Touchdown Recovery

Any Brotherhood personnel that read this - you are now on the Recovery Team. Under my command we didn't have the men or firepower to find the fate of Operation Touchdown. All hands must be lost.

Touchdown's transponders broadcast on the Brotherhood's radio frequency 92.3, encryption key 3A-F1. Follow it, find them.

Can't shake the feeling that Pldn. Taggerdy's fate is the answer to the Scorchbeast (Sierra Bravo) menace.

Touchdown Supplemental has more details.

Touchdown Recovery (Supplemental)Edit

Transcript

TO: <BoS Recovery Team>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Touchdown Recovery (Supplemental)

After losing contact with Pldn. Taggerdy, initial assumption was Touchdown was a bust. But 2 days after signal loss massive earthquake. Spotters reported tunnel collapses.

For a couple weeks skies clear. No new Scorched assaults on Defiance. We thought it was a final victory.

Now Sierra Bravos swarming from multiple fissures. We can't contain them. Situation dire.

TO: <>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Defend the Line

Sierra Bravos grow in increasing number. The range of Scr. Grant's Sonar Array isn't attracting all of them. If they hit Thunder Mountain, all is lost.

The men know there is no Operation plan. No deserters. We will fight to the last.

95-JUN-03Edit

Transcript

TO: <BoS Defiance>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Mop Up

I want to confirm that we have spotted growing numbers of Bravos. If one is spotted contact the Officer of the Watch immediately.

Scr. Grant is investigating. If there are any new developments, I will contact you immediately.

Ad victoriam.

Transcript

TO: <>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: She will be honored

It's been five days since Touchdown. After the tremors, we have spotted no Bravos in the air. Preliminarily declaring mission successful.

On a personal note, the world can never replace Liz. Appalachia can never repay her sacrifice. God speed, Pldn. Taggerdy.

94-JAN-03Edit

Transcript

TO: <Pldn Taggerdy, CO Ft Defiance>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, XO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Need more supplies

I know we're burning good will, but if we want to fight the Bravos we need bullets. And lots of them.

To fix the immediate needs:
1000 5mm
150 5.56
40 Missiles
13 Fusion Cores
6 Plasma Cores

Plus we need at least two weeks more food for the Mess Hall.

93-JUL-20Edit

Transcript

TO: <Pldn Taggerdy, CO Ft Defiance>
FROM: <Sr Knight Wilson, XO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Settling in

Camp Venture is officially abandoned. All personnel are relocated. Reporting all scouts pulled back, as well. In short, except for Thunder Mountain all hands are here.

I will try to complete the training of the remaining Squires. I want to reiterate that Squire Evelyn should be discharged. Her conduct is not becoming the BoS. I recognize that these are exceptional circumstances, but standards must be maintained.

Scorchbeast: AnalysisEdit

Transcript

We've learned much since we lost contact with Elder Maxson. Grant says it's pretty much worst case. Threat assessment:

* Actual Sierra Bravos are reinforced, mobile, and cunning predators.
* Bravos use echolocation to call in ground reinforcements.
* The breeding cycle for the Bravos is off-the-charts.

The saving grace in all this is that the Sierra Bravos only nest in specific places. We've found three nests in old mining tunnels below the Bog, but there's a main nest somewhere that's the real problem.

In order to stop the Bravos from spreading outside Appalachia and possibly becoming an extinction event, we have to destroy their main nests.

Ultimate SolutionEdit

Note: Accessing this entry ends the quest Belly of the Beast and starts the quest Uncle Sam.

Transcript

Every last Bravo needs to be destroyed. Maxson forbade using nukes. But...

A few years back we found one of the missile silos and the old security system was formidable. As a last resort we need to find a way in. Senator Sam Blackwell was on the nuclear energy committee, so he might know something? But no one knows where his bunker is... except maybe Quinn Carter of the Charleston Herald.

One way or another, if Touchdown fails the nuclear option may be our only option. Maxson's orders be damned.

Strange New WorldEdit

Transcript

Everything is different. We send information to Lost Hills about what we see and what we face and they have a hard time believing it. Some of the things they face are equally strange. The new plants, animals, monsters ... it's hard to keep track of. To some degree I've given up even trying.

But one thing is clear - these Scorched and the Scorchedbeasts are something different. We need to focus on them. All these other threats, even the giant hulking mutants, we can handle. But how will we handle the Scorched?

I've taken the schematics Scribe Takano transmitted as far as I can. I think I fixed the coolant leak problem, but I just don't know. If we ever get some serious time and resources I can try building one, but the list of components... is intimidating.

TO:
FROM: <Pldn Taggerdy, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Personal Notes

Two months and no word from Maxson. Grant's declared communications with the West Coast dead and dead for good.

Every time we think we have the Bravos licked they come back in greater numbers.

Only Grant and Wilson know of Takano's final assessment. If word got out, we can't guarantee there won't be a panic.

Every day that goes by, we're chewing through ammo, power, and sometimes knights.

We desperately need to make it to the end zone or Appalachia's toast. Or far worse.

Change of PrioritiesEdit

Transcript

TO: <All Brotherhood Forces>
FROM: <Pldn Taggerdy, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Change of Priorities

Up to now our priorities have been:

* Secure dangerous and useful technology.
* Protect the people of Appalachia.
* Expand our operational capacity.

But the brass has talked and we're changing that. We have a plan to lure the Scorchbeasts into a kill zone with some tech that Scribe Takano and Scribe Grant have been working on. Until the skies are clear our new priority is to wipe the SBs out.

Some of you will be receiving orders to secure food, munitions, and other supplies from the Responders and Free States. Be firm. Tell them that the SB Threat is real and that once it is dealt with the Brotherhood will once again help protect them. Under no circumstances are you to initiate hostilities or even take supplies.

However, in order to get the supplies we need you're authorized to ignore salvage rights claims. If it's not on one of their farms, put simply, it's fair game.

I know this is controversial, but we don't have time to play politics. There's a war on, let's win it.

Ad victoriam.

Satellite is DownEdit

Transcript

TO: <Sr Knight Wilson, CO Cmp Venture>
FROM: <Pldn Taggerdy, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Satellite is Down

We lost contact with USA-1103 today. Grant's got the backup already up, but he doesn't know how long that'll work. Elder Maxson said we have to accept that there'll be a point where we're on our own. So if there is ANY urgent info you need - ask it now. The window is closing.

Wanted to give you the heads-up that we're moth-balling the Grafton Dam outpost. The Scorchbeasts are just getting too dangerous. We need to reinforce our patrols with Power Armored knights. I'm sending Esposito your way. I hate to dissolve her command, but she can be a real asset to you.

Screen the Squires carefully. I don't want any weak links.

Ad victoriam.

Fort DefianceEdit

Transcript

TO: <BoS Defiance>
FROM: <Pldn Taggerdy, CO Ft Defiance>
SUBJ: Fort Defiance

Camp Venture served us well as our base of operations, but with the new class graduating we are ready to expand. So welcome to Fort Defiance.

Let me address some of the concerns raised about relocating:

* The Cranberry Bog has formidable challenges. But by basing ourselves here we protect Appalachia from them.
** These threats also act as a deterrence from raids and other intruders. It becomes our shield.

* The Fort itself is indeed too large for our purposes now. But we won't out-grow it any time soon.

* The previous purpose of this institution some find distasteful. Noted. Now's a chance to clean it up and make it our own.

For those who served in uniform, you're used to toughing it out. For those who haven't it's your opportunity to develop grit and character.

Ad victoriam.
