According to Tibor and Luminita, children have gone missing from the Romany camp. Could this have something to do with the local Orochi activity? The strange child-monster that terrorised the werewolves? Search for the truth



Luminita and Tibor are talking to each other

Luminita: I used to play with her. She was only two years older than me.
Tibor: She'd just received her weapon.
Tibor: She could hit a tin can from a hundred meters away. She was really good.
Luminita: I don't know why she went into the forest without the adults. Or why she brought her brother.
Luminita: That was stupid.
Tibor: He was one year younger than me.
Luminita: (Noticing you) Hey. Have you seen any kids out there?
Luminita: A girl, about this tall. (Motioning with her hand)
Tibor: And a boy with curly hair. He's much shorter than me.
You shake your head no
Tibor: Oh.
Luminita: I didn't think so.
Luminita: The grown-ups have been looking for many days.
Luminita: There's no trace of them. Neither Ylenia or her brother Mika.
Tibor: They've been eaten by werewolves.
Luminita: Don't say that!
Luminita: Maybe they were captured by vampires.
Tibor: Or kidnapped by ghouls.
Luminita: Or by those creepy farmers.
Luminita: They're stupid, and dangerous, and evil. Milosh said so.
Tibor: They scare me.
Tibor: I don't scare easy!
Luminita: Or... maybe they just go lost in the woods. It could happen...
Tibor: It's pretty easy to get lost out there.
Luminita: If they did, we will find them. Right?

Tier 4

Upon entering the facility:

Council Agent: My, you look dangerous
Council Agent: So dangerous.
Council Agent: I think I would cut myself if I tried to touch you.
Council Agent: Do not worry. I am not Orochi.
Council Agent: But I know who you represent.
Council Agent: Your reputation precedes you.
Council Agent: We also know about this.
Council Agent: These secret wars are bad enough, but when they take the children...
Council Agent: For this, the council cannot remain neutral, cannot sit idle.
Council Agent: And so here I am. And here you are.
Council Agent: We can help each other, da?
Council Agent: I do not think we will find the little ones here.
Council Agent: But we will find answers.
Council Agent: This facility is abandoned, but...
Council Agent: Such deadly toys.
Council Agent: Shall we break them, you and I?
Council Agent: Oh, my name?
Council Agent: Tell you what, if when this is all over,
Council Agent: you and I live to die another day,
Council Agent: I will tell you my name.
Council Agent: A good incentive, da?

Tier 7

Council Agent: I spy, with my little eye, something...
Council Agent: Ah yes... For your eyes only, darling...
Council Agent: It is called the Nursery. Not so far from our position.
Council Agent: It was part of a now defunct Orochi program to gather and accelerate gifted children,
Council Agent: children with preternatural potential.
Council Agent: The experiments took a darker turn.
Council Agent: Horrible surgeries, mutations, genetic manipulations. They...
Council Agent: they were birthing monsters like...
Council Agent: I am...sorry.
Council Agent: I used to be a mother, a long time ago.
Council Agent: (hums)
Council Agent: (Cradles the Orochi tablet like a small child while humming)
Council Agent: We must find the little ones - the children of the Romany camp and any others these Orochi dogs have stolen away with.
Council Agent: The Nursery is under lockdown. Go. Try to find a way inside.
Council Agent: I will see what more information I can uncover here.
Council Agent: Do not worry. I'll catch you up.
Council Agent: You are too much fun.
Council Agent: (leaning in like she is going to kiss you, but doesn't) I promise, the best is yet to come.

The Council moves unlike the Council. Is a thing only that thing when it behaves as itself? Or does it transform into something else? Every action splinters an entity into a thousand alternate selves. We reinvent ourselves with every step. Those who reinvent themselves purposefully are admirable or dangerous. Or both. Which version of you will enter this Nursery? Which will leave? Follow the song.

So the Council is actually making a move on this? I didn't get the memo, and I hate being out of the loop. See what you can find out from this agent. It's not often they take actual, proactive action, but then, kids in danger do make for a big emotional catalyst. It's what PR sound bites are made of. Until we run the whole game board, we have to play the politics too. So cooperate. Be sure to say things like, "Think of the children!" every so often. Get to the bottom of what the Orochi are doing with children all the way out in Count Chocula's armpit. If you can, find out before the Council does. A step ahead. That's how we dance.

I am surprised to see the Council of Venice charging forward into this. Inaction would reflect badly on us, so lead that charge. Find this Nursery place, and open its secrets to the light of our good judgement. These crimes against children are more extensive than we feared. It is starting to resemble the disaster that was the Children's Crusade, but that is a horror story for another time. Merry hunting.

Other Information

  • Completing this mission automatically starts the You Only Die Twice mission
  • While in the Hatchet Falls Facility (Instance) - If you didn't set off any alarms on the way to the secured files, you should be able to access the back room where you will encounter Janos Dragosani. Killing him starts Dead Chamber mission
  • While in the Hatchet Falls Facility (Instance), there is lore hidden the machine gun post between the stairs that leads down to the room containing the final terminal and access to the Janos Dragosani encounter.

  • Dialogue in Tier one - "you and I live to die another day" is most likely a reference to the James Bond film Die Another Day
  • Dialogue in Tier seven - "For your eyes only darling" would be a reference to the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only
  • The mission that this one leads into (You Only Die Twice) would refer to the James Bond film You Only Live Twice
  • While in the Hatchet Falls Facility (Instance) - If you go into the hallway you initially had to ignore because of security cameras, there is a door that leads into a storage room. Behind the crates in there is a dead Orochi Group soldier. He apparently had himself a little hideout back there - complete with a sandbox, beach chair, umbrella, and beer. It looks like he shot himself with his gun.
    • On the table across from him is several books, written by Sam Kreig
