4th Assignment:

  • Curt wants us to kill two birds with one stone.
    • The simple part: Get a tanker of ammonium. (NH3)
      • They will provide the tanker truck and a list of the six (or so) local chemical companies that had stores of it.
    • The tricky bit: Camp Blanding wanted to hire a chemist, so Mike Williams went up there.
      • He hasn’t been heard from since. It’s been three weeks.
  • The tanker will be worth 100 TU. The return of Mike Williams will be worth 60 TU.
  • We head out to Camp Blanding.
    • Vincent, Randi, Eric, & Prof. Pine are in Cherry.
    • Sammi-Jo & Doc Tanner drive the tanker truck.
    • At the gate, the guards say that we can’t meet with Mike, but Randi convinces them to make a case for us.
    • The guard manages to get General Walker to meet with Vincent, Randi, & Eric just inside the base.
      • The General says that Mike decided to stay with them and is very busy and can’t be met with.

        • Retrieve an artillery piece that the prisoners stole from a group of soliders passing through Starke.
