  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Machine Frequency p.5: "A few distant settlements went off the air in recent days. They’re miles away, and interference is common out here, but the settlements of Brahmin’s Crossing, Kinnikon, and Slatville have been silent – Scribe Galen suspects foul play."
  2. Machine Frequency p.16: "Scribe Galen needs to return to Bunker 441 at the end of his assignment. On his way out, he’d like to stop by the various settlements he’s learned about over the radio, and see their inhabitants face-to-face. He asks the Player Characters to accompany him as an escort, which is a solid plan, as the settlements soon become targets for opportunistic raider gangs."
