Mission Action.png Foul Banquet       Main Mission
REPEATABLE (Recommended Level 46)
Tier 1
In their search for meat, ghouls have churned the graveyard to mud and spread their disease. There is little sanctity left here - the exposed remains are better off destroyed.
  • Go to the graveyard
  • Look for anything unusual in the unearthed graves
  • 0/7 Kill ghouls
  • 0/3 Burn the unearthed coffins
Tier 2
Perhaps these are the secrets Father Lucian hinted at. Going by the marks and the stench, the ghouls have dragged some of the cache's contents further into their territory.
  • Enter Ghoul territory
  • Search the junkyard for tape 2
  • Search the junkyard for tape 3
  • Search the junkyard for tape 4
Tier 3
These tapes are decades old, but hopefully they were manufactured to last. The ghouls seem fascinated by Soviet salvage - see if they have scavenged any useful technology.
  • Find a way to read the tapes
  • Find a replacement tape drive
  • Search for replacement wiring
Tier 4
You should be able to jury-rig the tape reader with these parts.
  • Repair the machine
  • Kill Scrapheap Ruler
  • Feed the tapes through the reader

Patterns emerge in many ways. Scavengers are experts at scenting out what was left for dead.

This work, and all of science's work on the body, is misguided. The flesh will always be weak, unable to endure what is demanded of it. Only the mind is strong. A perfect mind receives and transmits force better than any genetically engineered specimen.

We thought these experiments ended, but now patterns have corrected us. What you have discovered is merely the tail of the matter. Follow it to the head, and strike it off. We do not permit its continuation. Kill the past.

Burying your dirty laundry in a cemetery is so...rustic. I guess we've just come to take our variety of disposal options for granted, i.e. industrial landfills, construction sites, nuclear missile silos and so forth.

Speaking of rustic, there's no chance we can restore those reel-to-reel tapes. It's a bust as far as historical data theft goes. But that's no big whoop, I mean, all the military scientists who defected to the US then defected to us.

Now these guys are getting old, nearing retirement, but maybe your laboratory holiday snaps will jog their memories. Keep digging until you hit paydirt.

How delightfully nationalistic of the Soviets: they had a valley full of monsters and still built their own.

We assume this burial was intended to be a short-term storage option, enacted in haste half a century ago. The Soviets planned to exhume the graves themselves, but never returned, and if not for the ghouls the evidence could have eroded here in peace.

Learn what you can about these forbidden experiments - forewarned is forearmed. I would hope records are all that remains to be found, but at this stage I think we both know better.

Father Lucian: I lose count of how many all-night vigils it has been.
Father Lucian: What runs dry first, I wonder, black coffee or faith?
Hasdatean: Faith.
Father Lucian: The coffee.
Father Lucian: My church accommodates many miracles, many mysteries,
Father Lucian: and in a town like this it needs to.
Father Lucian: The workings of God are not always obvious,
Father Lucian: but we learn to see them in all things.
Hasdatean: All things?
Father Lucian: All. Feet off the pews.
Father Lucian: Buried in the graveyard there are both villagers and also the Soviets who worked here in the past.
Father Lucian: Not a past to be proud of.
Father Lucian: But sins can be repented, and everyone is entitled to their eternal rest.
Father Lucian: Then the ghouls came from their pits,
Father Lucian: digging up the graves, gorging on the dead.
Father Lucian: I considered how we fast to regain our innocence, and I believe this is a universal truth.
Hasdatean: (yawns) Yes, I starve, but I am as pure as the Carpathian snow.
Father Lucian: Perhaps in time it will erode your temperament?
Father Lucian: I believe to deny the ghouls their foul banquet will calm them and bring peace, at least to this small sanctuary.
Father Lucian: There are many things put beneath earth that should remain beneath earth.
Father Lucian: (looking at Hasdatean) Oh, ah...present company excepted, of course.
Hasdatean: Well played Father. You have fangs after all.
