June 6th 2255: The Mad Scientist Reveals Himself

March 23rd, 2209

I have great news! I have been invited to join the NCR scientific research division. The invitation was extended by the President Tandi herself. I will have access to some of the best tech in the wasteland. I just feel so honored. Only the best of the best are invited to……

I can’t believe they are giving the mutants and zombies citizenship. What the hell is wrong with these people. The NCR is unraveling before my very eyes. Perhaps I can save these pure wretches, convert them back into humans and bring them into humanities fold….

January 19th, 2231

I am starting to believe that there is absolutely no hope for the NCR. I believe it is my duty to rid the world of these abominations. I now realize there is no cure for the poor wretched souls. The only cure shall be death. It is unfortunate, they were at one time humans. The NCR has made us weak though, and we allow such vileness to survive. I shall do what need to be done to free the wastelands from the wretch of mutation and the weakness of those who aren’t willing to make the hard choices.

October 5th, 2237

I have been playing my role well. No one here suspects I am planning to bring the world into one wholesome people, free of the NCR, Brotherhood and Legion. There is only room for science in the wasteland. I have found some data on a research facility over in Colorado with high technologies that I can use to exploit, if I can break free of the restraints placed on me by the NCR. I have been elevated enough that I may be able to get away with it here under their noses. I do not think the risk is worth it. With my status and facts I believe that I can persuade the council to give me an expedition. I should probably even have my own contingents of commandos. This may work out better than I was even suspecting.

December 25th, 2241

Finally, I am on my way with many of the brightest minds in the NCR, and even some from as far as New Vegas. This is glorious. I hope I can convince most of them to my way of thinking in the future. It may be best to just keep the truth from them.
I have been granted two platoons of soldiers. Coleridge seems a strong and reasonable man, and is highly held by honor. I believe I can use this to my advantage, and perhaps he can be shown the glory of my vision in time. The other soldier, Shawn, will be easy to manipulate and I can use him in my endeavors.

February 23, 2242

This place is glorious, I simply must learn more. I am already formulating my plan….

November 7th, 2242

I found plans and supplies to build 2 vertibirds. I will have my soldiers do this in their mean time. I have a feeling these machines may come in handy. You could destroy half the wasteland with these machines!

November 8th, 2244

I have discovered that we have a few doses of a virus known as Limit 115. I am not sure how this can help, but it may come in handy.

December 14th, 2244

We found some ghouls that we interrogated. I learned about an irradiated place where ghouls live known as the reservation. It is an all ghoul community, though they do have some human slaves. I got the exact coordinates, and I will make sure to bomb them off the planet.

September 19th, 2245

There is reference to an old prewar prison with access to nuclear weapons, ran by a computer, Odysseus. This is good, as the Virus Limit 115 by itself will never be efficient enough to wipe out the portions of the wasteland. We are too spread out and the virus acts too quickly. There must be a way for me to manipulate this to my advantage.

December 5th, 2247

The first Vertibird is complete.

June 14th, 2248

I have found the mainframe for Odysseus, and it is massive. I do not believe I will be able to hack it myself in a reasonable amount of time. I will have to bring my scientist in and have them aid with this part, but then get them off before they can do any damage. The second vertibird is almost complete.

January 13th 2250

We did it! We have hacked into Odysseus. I can’t dive too deep, not even my vast skills and overcome these countermeasures, but if I just view the system as if from a US Proxy server the system is none the wiser. It appears that the system is set up and in control of one remaining Bomb, the BOMB 001. The others appear to have crashed. The BOMB 002 appears to be located nearby in the Grand Canyon, I’ll remember that, may be important someday. The BOMB 001 has 8 nuclear missiles on it though, more than enough for my needs. It appears that the prison is a quarantine prison, that arrests those with plagues, and it specifically looks for Limit 115 as one of its dangerous substances. I believe I can unleash the virus and then trick Odyssues into coming to the conclusion that the plague has spread too far and to release its hold on the BOMB 001’s Nuclear Arsenal. How Exciting. The only problem is the codes to launch the nukes have been lost, so I shall need to hack the system myself once I get up there.

October 5th 2250

We have done it! That outlaw village has been contaminated and the village is none the wiser. Now we shall just need to wait. I believe many of us have been infected by the virus, but they have enough drugs to keep it suppressed for me and my men for quite some time, and we have cryo chambers we can use until a cure is synthesized. Surely my great scientist can use the old data and finish constructing a cure.

October 23rd, 2253

We shall unleash the prisoners today. This will be the beginning of the end.

January 27th, 2254

It appears that some prisoners are assisting the robots in capturing the prisoners. This is great news! Now Odysseus will see how far this plague has spread and will have to unleash the nuclear arsenal.

June 2nd, 2255

I did it, I showed Odysseus that the plague had spread too far, and it agreed. It has unleashed the BOMB 001’s Arsenal. I am so close now. It is time to head forward.
