VAULT 118 OVERSEER INSTRUCTIONS[edit | edit source]
CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL
OVERSEER EYES ONLY | VIOLATION VTP-01011
Vault 118 is designed to test the social interactions between the working class and ultrawealthy when under confined conditions. Working in conjunction with staff from the Cliffs Edge Hotel, this vault shall function as a luxury hotel to attract the necessary testing subjects. Upon beginning the test, additional subjects shall be admitted from the local population into a second, much inferior wing of the vault.
Operations Protocol Manual[edit | edit source]
Resident Admittance[edit | edit source]
Prior to experiment activation, Vault 118 shall function as an ultra elite hotel to attract test subjects of appropriate wealth and status. This shall be operated as clandestine area of the hotel to ensure that individuals drawn to privilege and exclusivity are present.
Upon Activation Notice from Vault-Tec, the secondary wing of the vault shall be made open to the public and selected from the local working class population. These subjects are to be taken through the exclusive areas of the vault on entry, but thereafter confined to cramped second wing.
Once residents have been admitted, the vault is to be sealed until test results can be determined.
Preferential Treatment[edit | edit source]
Test Group A: Ultra Elite
This subject group, not to number more than 10, shall have their every desire tended to by robotic staff, to the extent that is possible. They are considered to be above all legal restrictions when interacting with Test Group B.
Test Group B: Working Class
This subject group, should begin numbering 300 and shall be restricted to the second wing of the vault. Measures should be taken to ensure that living conditions are uncomfortable and cramped. Food and other rations are to be extremely limited and any breach of rules are to be judged by Test Group A and enacted by robotic staff members.
Staff Duties and Security[edit | edit source]
Due for the potential for extreme social interactions, Vault-Tec staff shall be restricted to the Overseer and key research members. All other security, services and maintenance positions shall be filled by robotic staff to ensure safety and test compliance.
Overseer's Log[edit | edit source]
Change of testing parameters[edit | edit source]
This is... completely unheard of. One of the subjects from Testing Group A is apparently a researcher for General Atomics on some sort of advanced robotics program. He and his wife have convinced the other members of Group A that, with the international situation becoming tense once again, their best chance to outlast the war is to have their brains inserted into these robots. And they're doing this voluntarily! It's absolutely insane! I've tried to convince my superiors that this will completely discount the test results, but they seemed more intrigued by the idea than appalled.
The door wouldn't open[edit | edit source]
We received the Activation Notice from Vault-Tec to begin the test, despite the second wing still being incomplete. However, when I attempted to trigger the recruitment protocol for Test Group B, the system informed me that I had been locked out.
Someone from Test Group A seems to have overridden the system to prevent the admittance of the local population of the island. They've been pounding on the door for days and there is nothing I can do.
I can't take this[edit | edit source]
Oh god. It's been weeks now, and I realized today that I've become the test subject. Instead of testing the social interactions between the locals and this group of rich assholes, it's just me trapped in here with them. They're going to live for ever,
I can't take it.
