The Kiosk won't let me delete that. Nobody should follow Sofie, she has problems. She lost everybody she loved in ways that... well, ways that we are all familiar with. She's grieving, but... it's the chems.

She's dangerous. I'm just going to lock the board from new messages for a bit.

The Responders? What a joke.

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Sofie (6 years ago)

I get that the Responders are like, nurses and firefighters and stuff, but do they even have a leader? Shouldn't we be training ourselves to fight and defend ourselves? Why are we sitting around reading stupid books? Fuck this.

Look, I get that helping the wounded makes y'all feel good, but we don't have time for this. The wounded are already DEAD. We need to get our guns and go up in the Mountains before things get WORSE.

Anyone who's with me needs to speak up fast. I'm heading out tonight. If you get in my way, you're DEAD.

Can I interview you?

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Dassa Ben-Ami (7 years ago)

I'd love to hear your story, if you will let me record your voice. I want people to know who we were, and how we survived. I promise I won't take much of your time, but... think about it.

Flatwoods Book Club

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Lucas de Blaise (8 years ago)

We need to get back to a normal life here. We're always worried about dying of radiation and we need something to stay busy.

So we're starting a book club. We'll take turns reading a book to a group of people and then we'll all talk about it. Simple.

Also, if anyone finds a baseball bat and baseball then we could also just do that instead.

Plants changing colors?

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Scott Shepherd (8 years ago)

The plants are turning weird colors, and it's not a seasonal thing, either. I watched a bean plant go from green to purple-ish over the course of a week.

I don't know if it's safe to eat that kind of plant anymore though, so maybe wait on it. Also I wouldn't touch the purple flowers, they smell unusual ...

The water tastes like ... dirt

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Miguel Caldera (9 years ago)

I mean it tastes way worse than dirt. Think of the grossest thing you've smelled or tasted in your life - like nickels mixed with a wad of rancid bacon grease and a wiff of cow dung and dirt. With a hint of cilantro.

What's going on? Is this safe to drink? I swear it didn't taste like this last week.

Survivors Anonymous

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Reverent Delbert Winters (9 years ago)

Every day we're gonna meet up in the funeral home to talk about what we've all survived. If you want to talk or cry or fall to your knees and pray then just come on over at dusk.

And yes, of course there will be pone bread and fresh butter from the weird cows.

Thanks Responders!

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Miguel Caldera (9 years ago)

I thought for sure I was going to lose my leg, but thanks to the quick action of the nurses at the church, I am going to be fine! I'm so excited and I just wanted to say thank you.

I'm still planning to walk the entire Appalachian trail once things calm down a bit, and until then I'm going to repay my debt and help build some camps for the community.

Again, thank you Responders! I am so lucky to have found a camp full of nurses and fire fighters and police offers. We all are!

You are safe

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Posted by: Dassa Ben-Ami (9 years ago)

If you're reading this, that means you're safe. For now, anyway. We are screening everyone for disease and injury as you register at the front desks. New Self-Serve Kiosks are managing the overflow from Sutton.

Please consider volunteering. This is the only way we'll make it.

Training Volunteers

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

TO: All Survivors
FROM: Responder Ben-Ami

By now everyone has heard about what happened with Casey and the two young survivors that arrived from Sutton. It's tragic. There are no words. But he just didn't know... and they trusted him to know.

So we've decided that all Volunteers must now start as Volunteer Candidates first, and during this time we go over the basics now. Food, water, that sort of thing.

Casey decided to travel into the mountains to clear his head. We tried to persuade him to stay but it's his choice. We hope he'll return soon.

Self-Serve Kiosk

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

TO: All Survivors
FROM: Responder Ben-Ami

The new kiosk should help us handle additional volunteers, should any arrive. Lately most of the survivors are too injured to help themselves, let alone others... but they see the kiosk as a sign that people will be arriving soon to help.

We need that hope.

Welcome

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

TO: All Responders, All Volunteers
FROM: Responder Ben-Ami

Welcome, Responders and Volunteers!

Thanks for working with us. As you know, we are trying to cope with the influx of survivors that need our help. The new volunteer program is going to help us concentrate on medical help while volunteers focus on basic survival needs.

We are also collecting data for the Responders Database which will help us rebuild Appalachia one day. So please contribute data when you can.

Miguel Caldera's Journal

Body

!! WARNING !!

Database corrupted. Partial entries recovered.

Hello, World!

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

It's been real hard being on my own since the bombs dropped. But the Responders... they have it figured out. They got someone working on vaccines and medicines and stuff, they even turn regular people into volunteers.

I took all their survival training programs and passed with aces. So now I'm a Responder too. Nifty, right?

The Cause

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The Scorchbeasts scare me more than anything. It's why I joined the Responders. I knew I couldn't live alone anymore, and they have stuff figured out.

I just wish maybe they got along better with the Brotherhood. It's not us or them, it's all of us together. It's a shame.

Programming Again

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I used to be a programmer before the bombs fell, and well. Guess what?

... I program robots now, too. I mean, it's important work. I get it. I can help out in the lab, too with the other programmers and it's good to have company.

They said they'd let me do some outdoors survival orienteering for new Responders though, so I'm looking forward to that.

Hope in Flatwoods

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I'm helping a couple of Responders set up a base out in the Flatwoods for a bit. They think a bunch of survivors will start getting processed there, so I'm gonna go set up camps.

I could do this forever. Camping under the stars and helping people out at the same time is the dream, you know?

Mr. Fluffy

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

We're actually making progress! Oh man. I even got myself a new Protectron bodyguard today.

It has an attitude problem though, but that's what happens when you put a bunch of parts together randomly, sometimes. I called him Mr. Fluffy, which really irritated it for some reason. ""Error: Metallic surface is not fluffy. Error: Does not compute.""

I've seen it before, so I'm going to need to write a program that resets their brains. This might take a while.

Despair in Flatwoods

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Flatwoods is... rough. So many refugees, not enough Responders. I'm going to start making advanced training courses for Volunteers because... there aren't enough of us to train everyone individually.

Good news though! I met someone on the road between the airport and Flatwoods... glad to have someone who will keep me company. It's a long walk and Mr. Fluffy - the robot - is not a good exercise partner.

Reset Program

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I wrote a program that will reset my protectron's brain to settings that are a little more conventional for a robot instead of standing next to me, day and night, forever.

Which is, I gotta say, really ruining my sex life right about now.

Peace, Appalachia

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I should have signed up for the Vault-Tec stuff, but the thought of being in a tin can for a hundred years was too terrifying. But here it is. Every day more of us die. I haven't seen a refugee in... too long.

If I'm going to get ripped to shreds, I'm doing it with a pot of Delbert's chili, in the woods, and under the beautiful stars. I refuse to die in an office! But... I need to wait for Garry. Then we'll go together.

This is it.

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

All I've wanted to do since the bombs fell was help people and explore what's left of nature.

But... he's dead, Maria. Garry died this morning. It was just an accident. One of those things broke through the gate. I already buried him up on the hill with the others...

What's the point here with any of this if we can't even protect ourselves?

I'm going to my camp, and I'll take my robot. I just need to figure things out.

Delbert's Appalachili Recipe

- Get some tomatoes, the uglier the better
- Add some beef, doesn't matter the quality
- Just a handful of garden beans (not the canned junk!)
- Add some cleaned up rainwater for the earth taste

Mix it up real good then simmer over a fire for a good long while.

Chitlins

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Delbert's Traditional Chitlins

- Grind up some innards and meat from a wolf
- Whisk some sap and water to get yourself a syrup

After the bombs, most other innards don't hold up too well with the syrup. Wolves eat meat, so they're still chewy on the inside. Add syrup to make it almost like taffy!

Stir it up and cook it as regular. In a fry pan is ideal. Parts will get all crispy! Rejoice in that smoke flavor!

Company Tea

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Delbert's Company Tea

- Take a nice labrador tea
- Add a dash of cream or milk
- Add some whiskey for good measure
- Add a splash of Nuka-Cola for some fizzle

Made up for when company visits and wants to sit and chat about life. Give out a couple of good drinks and stop worrying so much.

Corn Pone

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Delbert's Corn Pone Recipe

- Some corn cobs, just roll the kernels off
- Stir in one of the slimy big eggs from those crabby things in the river
- Dabble in some of its filth water, boiled up
- Crumble some sugar all over the top

Mix it up real good then fry it up in a pan on the open fire.

Praise and eat with a good side of whiskey!

Cramburger

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Delbert's Cramburger Recipe

- Scoop some cram into a bowl
- Mx it up with an egg and water
- Dab of ketchup or something

Smash into patties and fry up as per normal. Get yourself a bun or lettuce or what-have-you and eat it up. Hallelujah!

Deerskins

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Delbert's Deerskins Recipe

- Get a big deer, don't matter how
- Slice the meat up as thin as can be

Delbert's Diary

Jan 15: On Faith

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

January 15

I needed to write down my thoughts because I was losing faith. I am ashamed to admit it.

I witnessed the Wrath with my own eyes. The brightest of lights filled the sky, and I thought He had come for me and those of the Faith.

But we remain. Why?

Either He did not come, or we were not good enough.

I pray. I pray every moment I can. Nothing. I hear nothing. I used to hear something. I think? Did I? It's hard to remember. So long ago.

Feb 20: Responders

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

February 20

This past month I have struggled. I cooked a lot though. You know, it helps keep me calm to cook. Ingredients are so simple. Mix this and that and you got yourself a food.

Life, not so much. And the beyond? I don't know. I thought I did.

The Responders set up camp in town, they're a bunch of medical and firefighter types, and they plan to fix up survivors. I'm volunteering. This is something I know I can do.

Apr 15: Nightmares

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

April 15

Devoting myself to cooking for these survivors and running the book club and the nightly survivors guilt meetings has been good for me.

But I still come home at night and I think... why? I was ready. I was ready my whole life for this.

What did I do wrong?

Jun 10: Weird Cows

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

June 10

It makes me glad to see the Responders are taking in survivors so well. We need them, Lord knows. We need to rebuild this land.

I have been noticing a weird thing. Some of the animals are born different. At first I thought it was just a random fluke -- two headed cow, should go to the ""Museum of Fakery"" but then it happened again.

And again.

He doesn't make mistakes like this.

Sep 01: The Flood

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

September 1

Weird cows are born more often than not, and I don't know what to say. Plants are weird too. Plants are merging, changing colors, I don't know what.

Maybe this is a recreation of our world like after the Flood? If so, we survivors had no Ark, no protection.

I stayed up all night cooking stew and corn pone for everyone here. There's a lot of us now. A lot of us aren't doing so good.

Some have lost faith in the Responders and ran to the Mountains to join gangs. I pray for them. I pray for us all, mind you.

Oct 10: Experiments

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Oct 10

The weird cows continue to be weird. I heard someone who arrived from over east of here call them Brahmin. I can't remember what regular cow tastes like anymore... or regular tomatoes for that matter.

I've set up an Experiment to monitor these things. I'm worried, what if the meat and vegetables here are hurting us?

I need to keep track of this to know for sure. In the meantime, I think old pre-packaged food is probably okay.

Nov 08: Gangs

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

November 8

Bunch of old survivors came down to town from the Mountains. They're in a gang now. They wanted... stuff. They tore up my gardens and killed some cows.

I'm going to start putting some extra food in the pantry, just in case.

And I need to remember, they have a tough time up there. There can't be much to eat in the Mountains.

Dec 25: Our Future

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Dec 25

I brought all the weird cows down from the nearby farms and let them loose in the pastures. I think they'll stay by because I planted a bunch of good hay grass there.

In a couple months I'll build some gardens near the houses, and I'll set up some control groups of plants.

He didn't take us, so I need to make sure I'm ready for when He returns. This has to be just a trial. I have to do better. I need to make sure everyone here eats well and survives until the End.

Apr 25: Apology

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

April 25

I have sunken my entire life lately into these experiments and feeding these survivors.

I've asked Him if this is enough. If he will come for me now.

Silence.

Is this punishment? I was in the war. I killed. I know I did these things. But I had to - they made me do it. I thought it was right, too.

How can I apologize now?

Jun 26: At Peace

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Just finished planting the community garden for next year.

Figure I'll spend some time in the garden patches behind my house for a bit. It brings me peace to work the land like this.

Planting some seeds, gonna see what in the hoot they turn out to be. Don't look like any kind of seeds I know. Bless His creativity, right?
