Weapons Terminal[]

Location: This terminal is found on the ground floor of the main UDL Lab building, next to where the Gloop Gun is stored.
Note: Requires Hack 100 (UDL Lab terminal entries (1)UDL Lab terminal entries (2) 150) or UDL Lab Weapons Terminal Keycard to unlock.

Universal Defense Logistics
This terminal is only to be used by UDL personnel with S-564 clearance. If you are reading this without S-564 clearance, please report to your supervisor for immediate termination and disciplinary action, including but not limited to: fines in excess of 100,000 bits, detention in a UDL-authorized incarceration center for up to 349 months and a personal letter from Chairman Rockwell* expressing his extreme disappointment.

  • - Letter not actually written by Chairmain Rockwell. However, it is an approximation of his tone and vocabulary with a 99.8% degree of accuracy, so you should still feel very ashamed.

Research Data[]

Project Name: NOTATOY
Authorization: S-564 CLEARANCE
After successful trials, management has decided to put Project NOTATOY on hold. UDL will instead pursue projects with a wider area of effect for more practical large-scale crowd control.

NOTE: Before anyone asks, this does NOT mean I'm unlocking the gun. It's still off-limits. - NS

Research Log 14[]

Early results are promising. We've managed increase[sic] the surface tension of the "Gloop" to create a controlled and predictable spread of the substance. Management wants a catchier name, though.

Note: I told Powell we're not calling the project STICKYBITZ, but he refuses to refer to it as anything else. It doesn't even make sense - the Gloop particles are nearly fritcionless.

Research Log 57[]

Powell and Chastity have started to show interest in the project. Which should be good, but their "trials" seem to involve covering various hard-to-reach surfaces in Gloop and launching (expensive) equipment at them.

I'm going to have a talk with them.

Research Log 58[]

Someone filled my underwear drawer with Gloop. I have theories.

Resarch Log 143[]

Chastity used the Gloop Gun in our office paintball game yesterday. She said it was a "mistake," but this is the third time she's made the same "mistake," and she managed to cover the door panel with the stuff. Damn thing's been going haywire ever since.

Do you know how hard it is to clean Gloop? Chastity doesn't, because every time I pull out the latex and solvent, she remembers she's got actual work to do.

From now on, I'm locking the damn gun up.

✘ Answer: Smile and walk away.

Research Terminal[]

Location: This terminal is found on the second floor of the main UDL Lab building.

Universal Defense Logistics
This terminal is only to be used by UDL personnel with A-237 clearance.

Research Data[]

Project Name: LOREM IPSUM
Authorization: A-237 CLEARANCE
Project LOREM IPSUM shall result in a potent, mostly non-lethal crowd control gas for use against rioting, agitated, or excessively numerous crowds.

Rich sulfur pockets make Monarch a prime site for testing and experimentation. Early results show promise, but further research is necessary.

FROM: N. Sanders[]

Ms. Valdez,

Just reporting in to let you know the lab's all set up. We found a good sulfur pocket to drill into, so the data's coming in, but this place smells awful.

The only local we've had to make contact with is the SubLight boss in Fallbrook. She doesn't ask questions, but I'm pretty sure she's gouging us, and we're all getting sick of expired Cysty-Bits.

FROM: R. Valdez[]


It's supposed to smell awful. That's the point.

And I don't care what SubLight is charging as long as it keeps your presence there quiet. If word gets out, we're going to spend the rest of our lives in corporate re-education seminars.

I don't want to hear from you again until you have a working formula. Once we've got that, you and the rest of the lab rats can come to Byzantium and live on cacow ribs for all I care.

FROM: R. Valdez[]

And come up with a better name for the project. Something flashy and catchy but that the rest of management will take seriously. Maybe "WATERLOO." Or "DANGERBURN."

I'm sick of my boss asking me why I'm forgetting to fill out parts of my reports.

If Valdez wants a better title, see how she likes these. - JP

She's going to be furious if she ever finds this list, and I'm not covering for you. Make sure these are good and hidden. - NS
