In the year 2034...
Mining can be dangerous, being crushed, suffocated, or trapped and starved to death are only the usual risks. You could also be redirected into the sewer and drowned, shot by other rogue miners, or eaten alive by monsters from the depths.

Currency: $10
Arms: colt predator 6/6
Armour: gas mask, kevlar
State: Healthy
Items: Pick-axe, knife.

After trudging through the gritty sand for a while you come to a rusty barb wire fence that goes all the way around the tunnel, up the walls and on the ceiling. Two people pick there way over the fence to meet you. Both are in cowboy-hats and fairly sand-saturated clothes, the taller one has a holstered high-caliber revolver, the other carries two light gauge 3 beast-shot shot-guns. The taller one extends a hand "Welcome to Crumb, the driest town under the lake."

I take out the journal."I don't actually have anything to do with the Journal..." I say. I open the book and read aloud.

Several pages are either sodden or completely destroyed, but there is enough of the literature still intact for it to be read as a series

"...Lucky the fuzz didn't shut down the whole facility. From now on I'm only firing with suppressed weapons.

Monday, 6th:

Set to work ordering Shepard to clean up the holding tanks. He is to impertinent for my liking but he has a strong stomach so he fits the job.
Al-ice has started responding to stimulus again, for a while there I thought I was going to have to start from the all over again but, it seems, the worm is finally turning...

Wednesday 8th:

Etched my mark on Al-ice's shoulder today, it got pretty mad and started thrashing around. Got Shepard to restrain it...
Just found out Al-ice stuck a needle in Shepard before he got her into the holding tank. I'm trying to figure out what was in the syringe but I can't find any clues.

( Missing page here)

Al-ice has gotten loose, and to top it off I think she's got my pocket pistol.
Shepard ran off into the tunnels today.
I found the needle he was injected from. It was labeled "De-stilled Hydrophobia".
...with both Al-ice and Shepard on the loose I have decided to move to a tent outside the facility, I can only pray that the Mort-frog has already succumbed to the injuries inflicted on it by the security bots."

In answer the entity bows mockingly and gestures to a mark on its shoulder.

"Not mining at the moment, I just live here. Normally I work in the mine but there's a feud tearing up the town at the moment, the Jigjams got into a brawl with the Darkonians again."

Before the entity can reply there is a strangely ominous click as a metal tool box is placed on the ground.
As you turn you see that a man in thick rubber overalls and unhealthy grey skin has entered the room. In a unnervingly mechanical action the man raises one arm and there is the sharp sound of a pocket pistol being fired.
The entity hisses as the shotgun is struck from its hands and skitters along the floor.

"Not really, I mean you could kill half of them but unless that happens they'll just start fighting again tomorrow." The man scratches the back of his head thoughtfully before continuing "We've been trying to kick them out of Crumb for ages but the sheriff won't lift a finger to help."

I Ildely draw and to the knife at the man to the best of my ability. "Hello Sir." Ilden addressed the man bitterly.

There is a sptang as the tool box comes up and deflects the knife, spiting creamy looking foam on the ground the man starts firing again with the snub-nosed revolver in his fist.
