It's up to you, darling. You can either come with me or you can keep chipping away at your soul in exchange for a couple pieces of silver every week.

All I know is that the miners the Hornwrights kicked to the curb with those robotic scabs had families. And I won't be a part of making them starve.

Ms. Hornwright,

That reporter was here again this morning, asking about the ""Motherlode."" Mentioned something about ""toxic dump sites.""

I told him I had no idea what he was talking about, like you told me, but I got the sense he didn't buy it. Is there something else I should have said?

And not to bother you too much, but I haven't heard a peep from HR about taking over Annie's position. You haven't heard anything, have you, Penny?

Hi Ms. Hornwright,

Just wanted to check in. I saw your car outside, so I presume everything was all right for you and your dad down in Bramwell? I heard the rioters brought down one of the high-rise mansions. I was terrified it might've been yours.

They had some of those foul-mouthed Mr. Gutsy things patrolling our block in Charleston yesterday and today, but when I came outside today they were whining about not ""gettin' to see any action"" so I'm guessing the rioters kept to the south.

And is there really still fighting going on at the dig site in Mount Blair and down in Welch? Seems like the crazy is spreading like wildfire.

Yvette,

You did exactly right with the reporter. Until my father says otherwise, company line is none of us know anything about the ""Motherlode"" project. Which is closer to the truth than I like.

But do me a favor. Pop into R&D and tell him what the reporter told you. He should know what people are saying out there about his project. You're going to need my ID, though, as Dad's gone and restricted the top floor to Senior Executives only. Keeping all the juicy stuff just for us. You're up there enough, you should probably pop into HR once you're done, get your ID updated.

For your application, I'm sure it just got lost in the move to the automated hiring system. The current HR password is: BBbDefenistrateV7.

Go resubmit your resume and I'll make sure it gets moved to the top of the pile for Annie's job.

Gregory,

Come by my office as soon as you get in. It sounds like the shaking last night, it revealed some kind of vein down in Welch. We need to see if we can't get our hands on the mineral rights before anyone else does.

I'm sorry, Dad.

Gregory and I tried to get down to Welch as fast as we could, but AMS was already on site by the time we got there. Sounds like it's residuals from their old blast tests in the area, peeking up under peoples' homes. Knowing how AMS works, I'm sure they'll make a mess of recovery.

So... if you manage to pull yourself away from your project long enough to read this, at least know that we tried.

- Penny

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

Dad, if you're reading these at all any more, I really need your help right now.

I don't know what the hell AMS did in Welch over this new claim, but they fucked up bad. The town is in open revolt and from what I'm hearing, it's turning into a full on riot. They're trashing anything with a mining company name on it.

The governor's already started mobilizing the national guard, and I've put out to get some ""independent contractors"" over to Mount Blair and a couple of your experimentation sites.

I know you're still hurting over Mom but I think everyone would really appreciate hearing from you. So... please. Help me out here?

Gregory,

I spoke to the various site managers last night. We haven't been able to regain access to the Rockhound yet, but they've left all the others.

Initial estimates for the damage are in the tens of millions. And there's still some rioters preventing us from being able to get back onto the digger.

I need all the execs in a conference room TODAY. If we get stuck with this bill, that's it. Show's over. These riots are on AMS. We just need to make sure a judge agrees.

Gregory,

National Guard finally cleared out the last of the "rebels" off the Rockhound. The damage was so much less bad than we expected, in no small part because it seems those idiots couldn't sort out how the Ignition Reactors worked. The little blessings of proprietary technology.

I want crews working in 24-hour shifts until that site's fully operational again. Every day it's down, we're hemorrhaging money.

Finally got a look at some blueprints for Garrahan's Excavator Power Armor that our security department "acquired." God, what a mess. A Black Titanium coffin, effectively. Tough, sure, but some of the shortcuts their lab boys took to get this hunk of junk moving are laughable. I can't believe they think that this is the future of mining. They're so dead-set on leaving the automation out of the process that they forgot how error-prone this pile of scrap is going to be. Well, that's what you get when you work in conjunction with the military. One step forward, two steps back.

Helped Don Mobley, our lead tech over at Hornwright Industrial with the specs for the Rockhound's upgrade. He's having problems with power drain on the Ignition Cores at 2200MWe, so I told him to dial it down to 1750 and see where that gets us. I figure at that rate, maybe you'd get one hour per core. That should let the Rockhound run much more efficiently. No need to overtax the old girl.

The Auto-Miners built in conjunction with AMS seem to be doing their job, so my father moved me to the new top-secret project he has cooking with the Clear Skies Alliance. They've come up with some sort of an air scrubber that pulls particulates out of the atmosphere and exchanges it with pure air.

However, after pouring over the plans (no idea why the Alliance is so trusting, but that's their loss) I'm thinking we could actually use these things to our advantage. Instead of just filtering air, I'm certain we could use them to pull heavy metals out of the air and extract them down to their base elements. I'm going to run this by the team in the morning, but I'm pretty sure my calculations are correct.

Vault-Tec has a saying: "Prepare for the Future!" I couldn't agree more. It's been a mantra I've been following ever since I took the reins at Hornwright. My father always thought the future of a company depended entirely upon its workforce. "Your products are only as good as the people who build them" he'd say. My father had amazing foresight, but what he didn't have was the technology to make that workforce strong and reliable.

That's why I'm going full throttle on every automated worker program we have. No more sick days, no more vacations, no more maternity leaves and sudden deaths in the family. We reduce the number of people we need to run this company, yet maintain the same output and quality control. The Auto-Miner program is just the beginning - my ultimate goal is to fully automate Hornwright before 2100. If we can attain that achievement, we will no doubt be the strongest and wealthiest company this world's ever seen.

Having dispensed with the day-to-day lugs that once populated our mines, I've initiated a series of pilot projects to see what other molecules of the human element we might banish from the mining process. The most promising comes, however, was dropped onto our lap by a friend of a friend with connections of the Department of Defense. Seems they've been working on a "Vertibird," a vertical take-off craft, which it seems can be outfitted for long distance flight, air-to-ground combat ... or reconnaissance. Our technicians believe they might be able to strap an Auto-Miner brain and mineral detection system into one and speed up the pace of mineral surveying by a factor of twenty. Promising indeed.

Hornwright was approached by the Clear Skies Alliance a while ago - a proposal to co-own a project that would utilize scrubbers to remove harmful particles from the air and improve what they call "an unhealthy living and working atmosphere" in our region of Appalachia. My initial thought was to tell them that unless I could charge people for the clean air we generated, why would I waste precious resources on such a ridiculous venture? The PR it would generate would be decent, but we're talking development costs into the millions here.

But then one of my R&D gurus took a good look at the plans and said that the scrubbers could be repurposed. Instead of scrubbing the air, the tech could be used to ionize particles and convert them into usable minerals - perhaps even aerosolize minerals from our mines and collect them automatically! Marketing even came up with a snappy name: "Ash Forges." Perfect. We'll have to keep this quiet though. If the Clear Skies Alliance finds out about this, they're likely to try and slap an injunction on Hornwright to get their plans back.

Shaft Elaine was overrun by protesters today, carrying signs like cudgels, fighting their way onto the site to "express their right to assemble" by trespassing on my land and shutting down my business. But this time was different. This time, the men who I gave cudgels to drive off such rabble put them down and walked off the job, joining the protest. At least the protestors are loyal to something.

Penny was forced to scramble to bring in some independent contractors to restore order. I know she loathes such work, but I felt it was important she do it. She needs to be toughened up if she's ever going to take this position for herself. But lesson learned, I'd like to avoid putting her through anything like that again.

Our work with RobCo has already yielded plenty of fruit for the Auto-Miners. I wonder if they'd be interested in another venture? Something to prevent little Penny from having to hire more strikebreakers.

As I sit at my terminal, I'm at a loss for words. How do I say goodbye to someone I've loved for so long? It's only been two days since my wife's death, and it still doesn't seem real. All that money spent, all those doctors. It was all for nothing. I couldn't save Evelyn. And now, the one thing I couldn't afford to lose is gone forever.

I mean, just think about it. Knowing someone for years and years, and suddenly, in an instant, the realization that you'll never hear their voice again. Never see them smile again. Never feel their embrace again. My daughter Penny says she's okay, that's she's made peace with the matter, but inside I suspect that it's taken its toll. I wish I could get her to admit her true feelings to me, but her will is just too strong. I can't let this beat me. I must push forward, I have to complete the Motherlode Project. If not for myself and my sanity, I'll do it for Evelyn. I'll prove to her that her death wasn't the end of me - it was just the beginning.

Security tells me a stupid reporter named Bill Breyer hopped the fence to get a closer look at the Motherlode Project. Idiot blundered in with his recorder in his hand holding it like a weapon. What the hell else were my men supposed to do? At least it was a clean shot and they took him down before he could draw too much attention. Hanson in the PR department said we should "make a public statement to set the record straight," but I fired the moron on the spot. I'm not sure how we'll spin this, but I've sent a company directive to all managers that this incident is to only be referred to as an "accident." I'll have to give it some thought, but I'm betting we can turn this to our advantage. In retrospect, I'm almost glad this happened. Now no one else will be dumb enough to try and hop fences to get a look at our projects. And perhaps there's an opportunity here. Robotic security would've been so careless.

I can't believe my staff is distracted by the miner's rioting. I don't know what they're worried about. Our headquarters is well-protected here in Charleston and we could always write off the Rockhound as a loss. This is merely an annoyance, and proof that we need to be fully automated sooner rather than later. The Motherlode systems are performing at peak capacity, and have completely exceeded our initial expectations. Soon, I'll only need a staff of under twenty to keep it in operation, then those rioting miners can demand all they like since they'll no longer be employed at this company. Now who's laughing?

Governor Evans,

I'm thrilled to hear that Ballot Measure 6 will be taken up for referendum this November. Increasing the efficacy of the Appalachian government through automation will establish our territory as a national player for decades to come. We at Hornwright Industrial want to be a part of that.

As you know, we have established ourselves as the experts at creating cost-effective automated systems. Our product line is constantly expanding and adapting, meaning we can develop custom tailored solutions for your needs. There is no better partner for the automation of the Appalachia Territory government than Hornwright.

Not to mention dealing with a local concern rather than a national, impersonal conglomerate like RobCo will certainly help the pill go down easier with the local populace. Why don't you and the missus meet us for dinner to discuss? My wife Elaine has been dying to get to know the first wife more personally.

Hornwright introduced us our latest team member - a poach from AMS' ""Electronic Intelligence"" division. ""The future of mining as we know it,"" were Hornwright's exact words when introducing the young woman.

The child has one PhD. From a state school. Let's not leap to conclusions, Daniel.

But extra hands are extra hands, I suppose. Perhaps this Ms. Jackson can make coffee.

The Curious Ms. Jackson[edit | edit source]

In the four weeks since she's been here, young Ms. Jackson has managed to complete three of our outstanding research quandaries on the Motherlode project. Three!

Intra-mineral communication - solved.
Subcrustal navigation - child's play.
An automated voice response system - why not?

The child even designed an in-field repair system. Modeled off my original Motherlode design, of course, but capable connecting with the system WITHOUT WORK INTERRUPTION.

The child is either a genius or a thief, simply bringing us what she happened to write down during her time at AMS. And I can hardly tell if I need to beg Hornwright to fire her or put her up for a Nobel. But I must say I'm intrigued by the curious Ms. Jackson.

And damn it all - her coffee is sublime.

Direct Oversight[edit | edit source]

It seems Mr. Hornwright has decided to involve himself more directly in the Motherlode project. For security purposes, he claims.

It is his belief one of us tipped off the reporter who had the accident on the test site. And he wants to ensure no such thing happens again.

It is my belief that Daniel is looking for any distraction he can to avoid dealing with his ... loss. So I guess this means he'll simply distract himself by distracting all of us.

Power Struggles[edit | edit source]

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

{{ LOG ENTRY - 14.j.Brigada

And things had been going so well.

Thanks in no small part to Ms. Jackson's monumental efforts, systems 000 and 001 had been prepped and ready to deploy and we were staring down the barrel of upping our timetable by an entire quarter.

We've now easily lost that and more thanks to Daniel's constant ""input."" Inconsequential and incessant demands, almost always lobbed at Ms. Jackson and the intelligence team to make things more ""user-friendly."" To provide with the systems with more ""independence.""

The poor girl is being run ragged trying to keep up. I've been trying to step in as much as I can, just let the girl work, but the man will not relent.

To make things worse, Daniel has begun requiring us to go through him to get our requisition codes, making sure we can't make changes without his sanction.

I did manage to sneak at least one out of his notes while being excoriated for my "unrequested interventions." It's the small victories.

Ms. Jackson,

If you're reading this, congratulations on your promotion to project lead. No one deserves it more than you.

And I mean this from the bottom of my heart - get out now.

I do not believe Mr. Hornwright is well. His paranoia and insularity have only worsened over the past months. My firing is no surprise given his growing emnity towards anything but ""his"" Motherlode project.

I can only plead that you quit before the man snaps. Your talent is wasted in a situation such as this.
