Prison door[edit | edit source]

Trying to open the prison door[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hmm, it won't open. There must be a way to unlock it...
  • Liam: Any joy figuring out this door yet?
  • Player: Well, I did find a journal entry from the prison custodian. I think there may be a clue on how to unlock this door buried in there somewhere.
  • Liam: Ooh...
  • Player: However, I think it's only half of what I need to figure this door out.
  • Liam: Well, it feels like we're getting closer - keep at it! One of the other archaeologists said they spotted something that sounds like it could be the missing dial, so I'm going to go check that out.

Trying to fix the dial[edit | edit source]

  • Player I don't have anything to fix this with.

Pressing the prison door buttons before fixing the dial[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Huh, it powered down again. I think I'm missing something.

Talking to Liam after finding the first two Custodian's log page[edit | edit source]

  • Liam: Any joy figuring out this door yet?
  • Player: Maybe... I found a couple of pages from the prison custodian's journal. I wonder if there's a clue within them on how to open this door...
  • If you don't have the Kharid-et prison dial
    • Liam: That's great progress! As is mine - I found the missing dial!
    • Liam: Here, you do the honours.
  • If you already have the Kharid-et prison dial
    • Liam: Go on - reattach that dial! I want to see what it does!

Fixing the dial[edit | edit source]

  • Player: That seems to have fixed it. Now for some sort of code, I guess?

Talking to Liam after fixing the dial[edit | edit source]

  • Liam: Know what to do with it now? Maybe it needs a code? Have you seen anything like that?
  • Player: I'm pretty sure the prison custodian journal pages I found contain hints at some sort of code...

Pressing the prison door buttons incorrectly after fixing the dial[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Huh, it powered down again. That must not be the correct entry code.

When successfully opening the prison door[edit | edit source]

  • Player: It worked!

Talking to Liam after opening the prison door[edit | edit source]

  • Liam: Cool, you found some more information about this prison here!

Pressing the prison door buttons after opening the door[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I've already unlocked the prison door. Best not mess with this anymore.

Dr Nabanik[edit | edit source]

Talking to Dr Nabanik about the Prison Break mystery

  • If all Custodian's log pages have been found:
    • Player: I believe I've found a complete set of Stepan Jovkai's journal entries. It looks like when the fort was in crisis, he let all his prisoners free to assist in the fort's defense.
    • Dr Nabanik: That does not particularly track with own experience of vampyres. It takes all sorts, I guess.
    • Player: It does seem, however, that there was one prisoner who was deemed too dangerous to free.
    • Dr Nabanik: Interesting. Let me know if you find out more about that.

Custodian's logs[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Custodian's log page 1.

If I must discipline just one more of my guards for forgetting the fort prison access code, I think I might just lock myself in a cell and sentence myself to life imprisonment. Better that than having to deal with this incessant incompetence. I know my vampyre locks are tricky for the simple-minded human brain, but security within this fort is paramount, and they're not THAT difficult to remember. Just review the current prison log and look at the inmate references. The code order relates to the ascending order of sentence (ignoring those prisoners still awaiting sentencing). Press the buttons in that order - see, not hard. Also, not particularly secure, but what am I supposed to do if I'm only given the empire's dregs to run this place?

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Custodian's log page 3.

I've never had the pleasure of incarcerating a projected demon form before. This will be tricky - at any moment it could opt to destroy its physical manifestation and allow its demonic soul to escape to the Heart of Pandemonium. A week ago, that wouldn't have been an issue, for the legion Dukes could have invoked a clause in their contracts to have them held, returned or destroyed as was seen fit, but demonic contracts are tricky things, and the loss of Lord Zaros will have voided many of them, no doubt.

No, this one shall remain in my custody, even if I have to break some of our own rules for how prisoners are treated. Trog brought this on himself, the traitorous hound.

Pater Dis... That is, to say, Father Lucius... I more than suspect he might have some idea of how to handle this situation. He forgets how perceptive us vampyres can be. I've seen his subtle tells and I've seen the small phylacteries some of the recently arrived praetorians are carrying - the thing they refer to as 'diabolus' - and I have sensed what they contain...

Not that I'll let on any of this, of course, only that I require his assistance to incarcerate a demon soul. Cultists are dangerous people to deal with at the best of times, but those wishing to keep that knowledge secret are doubly so.

-Custodian Stepan Jovkai
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Custodian's log page 4.

The Prefect has ordered me to 'deal with' the food shortage with regards to my prisoners. I've worked hard to present to her that I am a rational being, yet she still seems to view me as a monster. I'm not just going to 'kill two birds with one stone' as she suggested, and just eat them. I have principles, damn her, and I take my role as custodian seriously. I am responsible for the wellbeing of those in my care, criminals or not.

No, I shall extend to each of them an offer - if they would serve us in the defence of this fort, they shall be freed, and then they can earn their rations. It should be simple enough with Cyrus and Percival, for while they are far from model soldiers, they are of the empire, and both have family here.

Genevieve is a different matter, especially considering her crime. I will suggest to the Prefect to just cut her loose as an ad-hoc venator. She can get her fill on the enemy, and not be a burden on fort supplies. It's effectively a death sentence, but then so would it be to leave her locked up.

And then there's the icyene, your typically stubborn and pious Saradominist. There is no way she will renounce him and embrace our Lord Zaros, and even if she did, I would never trust it, even though I know such creatures do not employ subterfuge.

Trog, however, can remain in solitary confinement and rot in the trap for the rest of eternity for all I care. Responsible though I may be, we all have a line, and he has crossed mine.
