And before all you people who like VideoGame/{{The Witcher 2|AssassinsOfKings}} start pounding your keyboard so hard that it starts snowing Cheeto dust, I meant the kind of complexity that ''I'' like. A plot where people can reference philosophy and Creator/GKChesterton in really, really bad accents, and it has [[InventoryManagementPuzzle intuitive inventory sorting]], and a health system where you can get all your arms and legs blown off and have to slither over to a health station using only your lips.''

'''[[TheDragon Walton Simons:]]''' I take it he was agreeable?\\
'''Bob Page:''' He didn't really have a choice.\\
'''Walton Simons:''' Has he been infected?\\
'''Bob Page:''' Oh yes: Most certainly. When I mentioned we could put him on the priority list for the Ambrosia vaccine, he was so willing it was almost pathetic.\\
'''Walton Simons:''' This plague... the rioting is intensifying to the point where we may not be able to contain it.\\
'''Bob Page:''' Why contain it? Let it spill over into the schools and churches, let the bodies pile up in the streets. In the end, they'll beg us to save them.\\
'''Walton Simons:''' I've received reports of armed attacks on shipments. There's not enough vaccine to go around, and the underclasses are starting to get desperate.\\
'''Bob Page:''' Of course they're desperate. They can smell their death, and the sound they'll make rattling their cage will serve as a warning to the rest.\\

'''Bob Page:''' UNATCO?\\
'''Walton Simons:''' Formed by executive order after the terrorist strike on the Statue. I have someone in place though. I'm more concerned about Savage. He relocated to Vandenberg.\\
'''Bob Page:''' Our biochem corpus is far in advance of theirs, as is our electronic sentience. And their... ethical inflexibility has allowed us to make progress in areas they refuse to consider.\\
'''Walton Simons:''' The augmentation project?\\
'''Bob Page:''' Among other things. But, I must admit, I've been somewhat disappointed with the performance of the primary unit.\\
'''Walton Simons:''' The secondary unit should be online soon. It's currently undergoing preparation and will be operational within six months. My people will continue to report on its progress. If necessary, the primary will be terminated.\\
'''Bob Page:''' We've had to endure much, you and I, but soon there will be order again: A new age! Aquinas spoke of the mythical city on the hill; soon that city will be a reality and ''we'' will be crowned its kings. Or better than kings... ''Gods!''
