Greater Secrets - Supply Drop
A downloadable supplement
//DISPATCH: SONG-7-NUIT-ORYX// /Belchior - it happened again. I don't know what to tell you. We've tried everything - confining him to his quarters, a full medical scan - we even sent samples back to R&D, but nobody can explain it. I'm writing to you to let you know that it's happening to me too. And I'm sorry, Belchior. The entity wants us all. Do not send any reinforcements, lest they fall under its sway too. I hope this finds you well. I'm sorry. I can't hold on for much longer, Belchior, so hear me when I say - there's nothing we can do. It's old. It's powerful. And we'll never understand it. It's infested the Walker model. /Lieutenant Oswald - Engineering/ //end transmission//
