    "The Incident" (On a crate near power) - Projekt Endstation Scientists Doctor Vogel and Doctor Kurtz initiate Cyclotron Test Run Number 12.


    Kurtz: I have completed my adjustments, Dr. Vogel. You may begin recording.

    Vogel: Thank you, I already have. This is Ulrich Vogel, director of Projekt Endstation. 7th of March, 1944, 10:03 p.m. Commencing cyclotron test run number twelve. Dr. Kurtz, please proceed.

    Kurtz: All readings are within acceptable parameters. Looks like we are getting the collisions we expected and... um... some interesting patterns are starting to--

    Vogel: What was that?

    Kurtz: I do not know. Gauges are red-lining. We have to shut down!

    Vogel: Mein Gott! What is happening to the air around the collider?!

    Kurtz: You men! Back away from that--

    Vogel: Kurtz! Cut the power!

    Kurtz: I'm trying! Controls are not responding!

    Vogel: Guards! Retreat! Seal those things in the chamber!

    "Parallel World" (While in the Dark Aether, beneath stairs near PaP) - Doctor Vogel records a report on the incident. He suspects the Cyclotron has opened a rift across spacetime. He notes that radiation of some sort is spilling through from the other side, as many of his men have been infected by an unexplainable sudden illness. Doctor Vogel describes it as "living death."


    Vogel: Ulrich Vogel, director of Projekt Endstation. 12th of March, 1944. Five days have passed since the accident, and I am starting to see it not as a setback, but a breakthrough. Literally.

    Vogel: The cyclotron continues to operate, apparently without an external power source. We cannot deactivate it, and it is still manifesting the strange phenomenon I call a "rift" and Kurtz calls a "wormhole."

    Vogel: We attached instruments to the end of a long metal pole and passed it through the rift. The readings confirm that somehow the cyclotron ripped through the fabric of spacetime.

    Vogel: Something lies on the other side. A parallel world or perhaps a whole universe. But we dare not approach too closely, lest we suffer the same fate as the men currently held in our medical clinic.

    Vogel: Those men remain in a state best described as "living death." Kurtz thinks they caught a high dose of some exotic radiation from the other side of the rift. We are checking their blood and tissue samples for traces of rare elements or otherworldly pathogens.

    Vogel: I pray, whatever it is, it is not contagious.



    "Endstation Approval Letter" (Dropped from Megatons) - A letter from Uranverein Director Doctor Kurt Diebner, announcing that Projekt Endstation has been approved for funding as part of the Reich Atomic Program. Construction is to begin immediately.


    Marked 3, Aug. 1943


    Dear Dr. Vogel,


    It is my great pleasure to inform you that after a thorough review by our resident experts, we have decided to proceed with the cyclotron proposal submitted by yourself and Dr. Kurtz. Projekt Endstation is officially funded.


    A site has been chosen in Reich District Danzig West Prussia for construction and operation of the particle accelerator. However, this is all contingent upon a commitment from yourself and Dr. Kurtz to personally oversee daily operations at Endstation. This will mean taking a leave of absence from the University, but I believe this endeavor should provide a bit more excitement than the halls of academia.


    Remember, the Reich will expect dramatic advances in uranium enrichment from you. I know you long to make some contribution to the study of quantum physics, but the atomic weapons program comes first.


    The Reich District Danzig West Prussia site is in a wooded area called Morasko. Labor for construction will be provided by nearby internment camps.


    As with all Uranverein programs, Projekt Endstation will be kept a state secret. Do not speak of this to any colleagues, other than Kurtz. Both of you must report here at the Institute no later than Monday morning. I will arrange for transport to the Morasko site so you can oversee construction of the cyclotron.


    For the Fatherland,

    Kurt Diebner, Ph.D.

    Director, Uranverein

    Sketch of possible spacetime breach

    Endstation cyclotron

    7. March 1944

    NOTE: Breach is persistent but unstable. Will send through instrument probe ASAP. Results forthcoming.

     "Der Wechsler Blueprint" (Dropped from Megatons) - The blueprint of Der Wechsler. One of Doctor Vogel's pet projects. Der Wechsler was a decontamination chamber designed to restore the brain functionality of those infected by Exo-Element 1.


    Excerpt from "Der Wechsler Blueprint":


    Isotopic impellers extract radiant contaminants from subject's brain.

    Initial results: partial success. Further trials needed.

    Subject 1. Remembered own name. Called all others "schnitzel."

    Subject 2. Returned to guard post. Used it as a latrine.

    Subject 3. Correctly unloaded handgun. Then ate the bullets.

    "V Cipher #1" (Dropped from Megatons) - Recovered Projekt Endstation Cipher. Decryption is required. (Solved here)





    Inform the chancellor that preparations have been made to open the third front. Endstation is ready to receive the package as soon as it can be assembled and transported. We are honored to help facilitate Reichstag's plan. - V

     "V Cipher #2" (Dropped from Megatons) - Recovered Projekt Endstation Cipher. Decryption is required. (Solved here)





    Abreise ohne weiter Zwischenfälle. Alle Werte stabil. Ankunft in Germania. Wie besprochen, was jetzt auch passiert, der Sieg ist uns gewiss. - V



    Departure without further incident. All values stable. Arrival in Germania. As discussed, whatever happens now, victory is certain for us. - V


    Radio Transmissions
    "Officer Weaver" (On the table to the left of the Nacht wall leading to Pond) - Officer Weaver, the head of Requiem's Field Operations Division, briefs his strike team about the state of the world, and their role in the CIA's newest department.


    Weaver: Strike team. Weaver here. I understand this has been a lot to take in. Interdimensional breaches all over the world, an infection transforming people into the undead, not exactly a great two weeks for any of us.

    Weaver: Requiem had to react quickly. The same day I was personally requested to run Field Ops, I was ordered to assemble a short-list of operatives. That's you guys.

    Weaver: Here's what we know. Two weeks ago, a KGB-Spetsnaz unit known as Omega Group came here and reactivated its particle accelerator. Their actions caused the Outbreak Zones we're now seeing around the world. This place is ground zero.

    Weaver: Why they did it and to what end --that's what we're going to figure out.

    Weaver: We lost two teams before learning about this site. Make their sacrifices count. Let's get some answers.

     "Doctor Grey" (On the table to the left of the Nacht wall leading to Pond) - Doctor Elizabeth Grey, the head of Requiem's Unnatural Sciences Division, introduces herself to the strike team.


    Grey: Strike team? You there? 'Course you are. Sorry, I'm a bit new to all this. Hopefully you don't mind the less-than-formal-approach.

    Grey: Should probably introduce myself. My name is Doctor Elizabeth Grey, head of Unnatural Sciences, and this is about as unnatural a Sunday as I can remember.

    Grey: Normally about now I'd be sitting in my lab in Bristol, having a good natter with Pip and Sam, two macaques I work with, over a nice cup of tea.. Then, just BAM -- this whole thing happens.

    Grey: Next thing I know, I'm drafted by the bloody government to be their representative in this new organization, Requiem. I mean, how could I pass that up?

    Grey: Sure, the name sounds a bit ominous, but think of the opportunity, the potential discoveries that await us in this new reality -- there's a chance I could end up changing the world.

     "Dimension of Death" (On the table to the left of the Nacht wall leading to Pond) - Doctor Grey discusses the Dark Aether and what it may offer humanity.


    Grey: Yes, I know it seems like the proverbial "Dimension of Death" has opened right in our back garden, but there's a real life to it -- and that's including the infected undead.

    Grey: The untapped potential of this discovery, this Aetherium... it could provide us with the tools to grow, evolve even, as a people and a society.

    Grey: Imagine that: no more war. Or at the very least less war. Put you out of the job though, wouldn't it? No offense, of course.

     "Doctor Strauss" (On the table to the left of the Nacht wall leading to Pond) - Doctor Oskar Strauss, the head of Requiem's Energy Research Division, introduces himself to the strike team.


    Strauss: "There are precious few things in the world more valuable than knowledge -- and one of those is the ability to know how and when to utilize said knowledge." Do you know who said that?

    Strauss: I did not think so. Dr. Vogel, the scientist in charge of Projekt Endstation, said it to me some forty years ago when I was employed at this very facility.

    Strauss: I know you have your suspicions about me. I hear what your type says about me in the halls. "Mein Gott. Is that Doctor Oskar Strauss, former Nazi scientist? They put him in charge of Energy Research? It is so horrible."

    Strauss: To this I have two things to say. One: I was never a fucking Nazi. I am, and always have been, a man of science trying to survive in a nasty, despicable world. Two: I do not care if you have your suspicions. All I care is if you are able to follow your orders.

     "Aetherium" (On the table to the left of the Nacht wall leading to Pond) - Doctor Strauss muses on the scientific potential of the newly discovered element.


    Strauss: This energy source. The Germans called it "exo-element one." I call it by its proper name... Aetherium. It has the potential to revolutionize the world in ways we cannot possibly comprehend.

    Strauss: I will understand these crystals. And I will learn the how and when to utilize it. I hope, if nothing else, you can appreciate that.

    Strauss: All I ask is that if you let me do my job, I will let you do yours.

    Strauss: There is no need to be enemies. In fact, one day I hope we can work together, side by side. Perhaps we will even consider each other comrades.

    Strauss: Just do not expect a warm hug when you return from your missions.

     "Major Carver" (On the table to the left of the Nacht wall leading to Pond) - Major Mackenzie Carver, the head of Requiem's Containment and Security Division, introduces himself to the strike team.


    Carver: Strike team, do you read me? Finally, a strong signal. I know the circumstances are less than ideal, but allow me to formally introduce myself. I am Major Mackenzie Carver. My friends call me Mac. You will not.

    Carver: And yes, I am that Major Carver. Most likely, all the stories you've heard are true. But that is in the past. I'm a firm believer in living in the now and preparing for the future.

    Carver: As you may well know, I head up Requiem's Containment and Security Division. It's a post I personally requested.

    Carver: Make no mistake -- we are at war. This is chess. And the Soviets' Omega Group? They just moved their queen into position.

    Carver: They're the ones who opened these portals, and you bet your ass it's to get some sort of tactical advantage over us.

     "New Arms Race" (On the table to the left of the Nacht wall leading to Pond) - Major Carver considers the possibility of weaponizing the Dark Aether's technologies.


    Carver: This is an entirely new dimension we're dealing with. The technology it could potentially offer is unfathomable.

    Carver: We may have nukes, but what if your enemy uses an interdimensional weapon -- something we can't anticipate and counter? This is the new Arms Race and we've already fallen behind.

    Carver: Now look, I got nothing against these eggheads and their... scientific pursuits.

    Carver: I'm just here to make sure DOD gets what's rightfully theirs. That includes Strauss and his Aetherium crystals. If we're to regain the advantage over our enemy, we need to act fast, and make sure these science-types don't keep anything from us. Don't let me down.



     "D.I.E. Remote Control" (Kill a megaton and its bombers, the last will drop a keycard. Take it to the Weapons Lab and interact with a drawer) - The D.I.E. Remote can locate and remotely activate the D.I.E. device. Be advised: do not activate with the D.I.E. device aimed in your direction.

     "D.I.E. Machine" (Acquire from the mystery box or by the D.I.E. side quest) - The Decompressive Isotopic Estrangement Machine was initially designed to be an Exo-Element 1 collector, but an incident led to a design change. During an outdoor test, an assistant accidentally ejected a full capacitor all at once, triggering a shockwave blast that destroyed a military transport and Doctor Vogel's personal automobile. Projekt Endstation saw the device's full potential as a wonder weapon - and the assistant saw the full potential of a firing squad.

    "Decontamination Agent" (Found after the tank step in the EE) - The Decontamination Agent, a component for Der Wechsler made of gold, was thought to have been lost when it was stolen in 1945. However, it was recovered nearly forty years later when it was found in a tree near the facility - apparently, the thieves forgot where they'd hidden it.

     "Exo-Element 1" (In Med Bay on table opposite the computer) - Doctor Vogel discovers an element from the Dark Aether as the source of his men's transformation. It is classified as Exo-Element 1.


    Vogel: Vogel. 16th of March, 1944. We have finally isolated an unknown element in the men who were transformed by the cyclotron accident. And even at this early stage, it is clearly a remarkable substance.

    Vogel: For now, we have classified it as "exo-element one." Kurtz suggested "Vogelium." *tsk* Such an ass-kisser.

    Vogel: The current theory is that, at sufficient concentrations, exo-element one triggers the horrific transformations experienced by the men closest to the cyclotron rift.

    Vogel: I am currently designing a chamber to withdraw exo-element one from the occupant. My hope is to somehow purify the men and reverse their necrotic condition.

    Vogel: If we can learn to control the necrotization process, I believe it could be weaponized. Imagine: an army of unkillable soldiers. Even at this late point in the war, I may have found the key to saving the Reich.

     "New Orders" (To the right of Deadshot Daiquiri and left of Plaguehound Gas tank in front of DIE blueprints) - Doctor Vogel and Doctor Kurtz discuss their new orders from the Reichstag.


    Vogel: Dr. Kurtz. You have memorized the new orders, yes? Did you burn after reading?

    Kurtz: Ja, Vogel. And I thought security was tight before the accident. Do you think we can actually accomplish what the Reichstag is asking for?

    Vogel: I would not have suggested it if I did not think it was achievable. But let us guard against overconfidence.

    Vogel: If we do not deliver, they will find someone who can. And I am not about to give up control of this discovery.

    Vogel: All we need is to send through a few volunteers to measure the specific relativistic differential--

    Kurtz: Volunteers?! Would you take on such a task?

    Vogel: Mind your words, Dr. Kurtz. I would hate for someone to question your commitment.

    Kurtz: You...are recording this?

    Vogel: What we do now will ensure the Chancellor's dream of a thousand-year Reich. There must be a record.




     "Doctor Vogel Entry 203" (Dropped from Megatons) - An entry torn from Doctor Vogel's Personal Diary, chronicling the Incident and its aftermath. Uranverein has taken great interest in Projekt Endstation's discovery.


    Entry 203

    9 March 1944

    Dr. Ulrich Vogel


    The last few days have been a blur, but I must record these events regardless of how preposterous they will seem.


    We activated the cyclotron at 10:03 pm two nights ago. I knew immediately Dr. Kurtz's modifications had gone too far. There was a sound like a high-pitched turbine crossed a human scream. Then it looked as if the air itself ripped open and the radiation alarms went off. I immediately tried to cut the cyclotron's power, but the machine continued humming along.


    Whatever energies were released, they had a profound effect on the men standing within ten feet of the breach. They fell where they stood, only to rise again, moaning and screaming, their flesh necrotized. As they attacked the rest of the staff, I ordered the Cyclotron chamber sealed. We have since captured our "undead" personnel and placed them under observation. But I have no idea why any of them are still conscious since not one has a pulse or any ordinary life signs.


    While I help the medical staff try to find a way to reverse these men's condition, Dr. Kurtz has been studying the strange "tear" that manifested on the cyclotron. He posits that it is actually a hole in spacetime and that another world can be glimpsed through it. Furthermore, there seems to be a strange relativistic discrepancy between us and this other "dimension," for lack of a better term. We immediately reported all of this to our superiors at Uranverein.


    Rather than a reprimand, Berlin responded with great interest, encouraging us to further study the spacetime rift. This is now our top priority. Atomic weapons research is on the back burner.


    The thought that we have accessed a dimension where time passes at a different rate presents us with a remarkable tactical opportunity. The Fuhrer himself understands the implications. He has taken a personal interest in Projekt Endstation. And that is one man I dare not disappoint.
