Everyone has gone crazy![edit | edit source]

Found on a dead construction worker by the ladder in the access shaft. It is an account of the Aug Incident.

To: Quasim Mir
From: Kalim Khoury

I was working on the fan system when we lost power. Stuck in here. But I think that means they can’t get at me. They’re killing everyone! They started screaming and attacking anything that moved. Where are you?
If you can, make it up to the storage area on the roof. It’s caged in, you should be safe there. Might even have some medical supplies.
Door code is 4801.
Be safe friend.

This place belongs to the dead[edit | edit source]

Found in the south-side penthouse, first level

To: Bakr Demian
From: Fa'iz Baddour

We should not be here, Bakr. The faster this deal of Singh’s is over, the better. This place is no longer meant for the living. It is a tomb and everything it contains has been tainted by death. Believe me. The things left here after the Incident may seem innocuous, but they are a trap, left by the people they belonged to as conduits between worlds. That is why you must leave these things where they are. Touch anything and you invite the grave into your life.

Atrium Door Code Reset[edit | edit source]

Found in the observation lounge

To: DJRDUB-Workers_ALL
From: Wares Noori

Attention all employees,

Due to yet another power surge, the access code for the atrium doors was reset to 0682.

I would like to remind you all once again, that until the electricians have completed their work, there can be no more than ONE line running from any outlet.

We hope to have this issue fixed by early next week. In the meantime, please use your best judgement. Any delays, no matter how small, add up and the budget is already stretched thin.

Thank you for your continued cooperation.

[UNSENT MESSAGE][edit | edit source]

Found on a dead civilian in the observation lounge

To: Imad Hakim
From: Fahmi Hakim

Imad, I’ve finally reached the Desert Jewel. This place itsicsic massive! Room for thousands. Some people that I met along the way, others like us, looking for a new place to start over, have decided to join me here. We've started to clean up what we can but there is so much sadness here. Evidence of the Incident is everywhere. Worst are the bodies, We’ve taken most of them and put them in the stairwells until we can figure out a proper way to dispose of them. There is a lot of work to be done if we‘re going to call this place home, but... I think this may be the place for our family. Tell mother and fathsicsic

Found on a Jinn member near the observation lounge. It describes an event in Deus Ex Universe: The Dawning Darkness.

>Obaidullah: I get a bad feeling with him. He‘s too much talk. He could charm snakes with that mouth of his. In three years I’ve never seen him pick up a gun and get messy. It’s always talk talk talk.
>Vahid: I felt that way too. But you’re wrong about him.
>Obaidullah: Why, what happened?
>Vahid: Yesterday, after I dropped him off to set up the deal, I followed him into the Emirate Hotel.
>Obaidullah: And?
>Vahid: Singh said he only wanted one guy to meet him at the hotel. He insisted on this. Instead, three men arrived. Singh killed them all without hesitation.
>Obaidullah: Even the one guy he said could meet him?
>Vahid: All of them. Trust me, he’s one of us.

Next Steps[edit | edit source]

Carried by Arun Singh

To: Arun Singh
From: Salar Alam

l'll remind you again Arun, this deal must go smoothly. Wasim has begun recruiting new soldiers out of the Rabi'ah shantytown, so more weapons and more powerful augmentations for these soldiers are the next step.

The RFS has choked off our pipelines through Afghanistan for long enough. I want my routes back. We are building a new Jinn army, and with this army, we will push the Russians out of Afghanistan and back to their winter wasteland where they belong.

I know that there is a leader in you, Arun. Prove me right.
