Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated!

Okay, so, Quarry Hill Brewing fell. Old story, someone doesn't report a bite and goes Vector. Me and one or two others, we got out. I'm down an arm and I'm Latent now (pro tip guys, cutting it off doesn't stop in the infection).

I'm at the Conda now. Big smokestack thing in Montana. Run by, I think they're Amish? Whatever, I'm not from America, I didn't learn the difference between Mormon or Amish or Melonites or whatever. In theory there's no booze allowed here, in practice hey guess what people like booze. They don't like Latents but if you're desperate for moonshine, you take the chance moonshine kills Blight.

Anyone wants some LatentBrau, hit me up.

Change the name and offer up some proof that your operation is at least half-assed sanitary and I'll get your brew selling Pacific to Mississippi within a year.

Also, I really feel like the forbiddeness and risque nature of it means we could actually find a market under the current name to the buffoons in the recession. They're always looking for the next vogue thing and anything Loss is always in fashion for them!

If you're in need of a prosthetic arm I think there might be a guy near me selling one. It's not one of those fancy robotic arms but I'm sure you could upgrade it if need be. Sometimes Crusaders pass through town as well so you might be able to find one to attach it successfully as well. Of course they might want "samples" in return.

I know a guy, it's fine. Medical engineer. One of those guys that had a six figure salary and then the world ended and he specialised in nothing worth a damn against a horde of biters. Actually, typing this on my new arm now (sorry for typos, still getting used to it)

I mean, I have what components I could salvage from the, you know, ruins of my former home once my former friends stopped trying to eat my flesh. But it's good high-quality parts, I'm a trained brewer. I know my shit. Hard part is sourcing the ingredients and putting up with the holier-than-thou Mormonites when they try and tell me small beer is the blood of the devil despite having an alcohol content so low you'd need to bathe in it to get half a buzz...

wait, you don't have mandatory bite checks for everyone that leaves town or fencemen?  That's half my job nowadays.

Hey Everyone, Dr. Dee here.

You wouldn't think a PhD in Critical Pedagogy would be of use in the loss, but 3 years working on literacy in rural Costa Rica actually prepped me pretty well for this life.  A little sustenance farming, some basic wilderness first aid/herb medicine, and a lot of teaching people how to do shit and you got yourself a bonafide survivor... I guess.

So... yeah.  I spent most of my life teaching people in shitty situations how to make their lives a little better.  Now I'm the one in the shitty situation.  Is that Karma?  I dunno.

Now the hard sell.  I know plants pretty well so if you're trying to remember that one thing from"Outlander" that made hemorrhoids feel better, I can probably help you HMU.  I also do consulting on conclave agriculture and education.  I know for takers, teaching kids reading doesn't feel like a priority, but its been 5 years, turns out there are quite a few folks out there that need school stuff.  Your enclave might be one of them. 

I've got a pretty good collection of school supplies and resources that I can drone most places.  So if someone in your enclave gets itching to teach some kiddos, I can help.  My price is pretty fair.

Also, if you come across anything like worksheets, textbooks, w/e.  I'm always looking to buy.
“Looking at the past must only be a means of understanding more clearly what and who they are so that they can more wisely build the future.”

Hello hello hello, Iditarod here, hailing from Freelance in the 10k!

Even before the Crash, I was a professional animal trainer (matter of fact, if you figure out my ID, you can find a few movie credits), so if any of you need a tip or two when it comes to dealing with beasties, I'm the guy you should turn to: my rates are quite reasonable.

What else about me... I've been back and forth over the walls a few times, so I've got some connections that could help the right person looking for a way home.

Speaking of, if any of you folks know a good cameraman, feel free to contact me over Ubiq. I have some interesting ideas about making the Loss a better place.

Hey all, Pixie from the Recession checking in. Ran the Reformers crew back in the day, made it out, only a little political sabotage and regime toppling on the way out.

I don't negotiate any more, but if you're in need of some emergency medical advice, hit me up. I care more about keeping y'all healthy and fighting the good fight, so my rates are real reasonable.

Talk to me if you're getting close to hopping the line, all right? I don't know safe houses, but I know some folks who's contacts you can trust.

Referee here, I'm a semi-retired Taker from out of Achieve, an urban enclave built inside a fortified stadium. Call bullshit on that all you want, but Achieve is an IRL place built on years of isolation, bloody work and hard-won achievements.

No, really. We made a cheevos a thing, using the next-generation UFit and our stadium's jumbotron. Useful device - it really puts the 'merit' in 'meritocracy' when you can tell who's slacking and who's cracking. Check our enclave's orgchart, if you want more details. Shame we have about 100% of the UFits in existence and the only running server. More of these could've done a ton of good out in the Loss.

Sitch-wise we only secured a route out of the city last year, and have started trading with Trickledown and Fort Remedy for luxuries, but if anyone wants to drone in rare goods we'd love to deal with someone other than Tricklers, Downers and quasi-Moths selling 'performance enhancers'. Make it a good deal though or there will be no deal. We don't tolerate Randian bullshit, and be warned that there's a new 'Reclamation' achievement for dealing with anyone who's stinted an Achiever. Trust me, nothing will get a cheevo-hunting High Scorer on your ass faster than a new rare.

If anyone needs tips on urban Taking, call me. I'll tell you to not do it, then how to not do it and then how to maybe survive it, since you're going to insist on going anyway. I also run the Fit Pit, Achieve's gymnasium in Getters'burg, and can offer you fitness advice. Drop by if you're ever crazy enough to visit.

I'm currently hold up in Washington at a place called Portside. It's a nice little port town that's a weird combination of society's misfits I guess. I think the most interesting groups are the Wiccans, Communists, and Canadians that somehow get along, barely. If you ever find yourself in the area, don't hesitate to visit. If you're carrying drugs to sell, all the better. Just make sure to stay away from those RenCon douchebags, they're assholes.

Oh, you're one of the hippies. At least there's one thing we can agree on, fuck those RenCon guys.

Anyway, I'm Bishop out of Skookum, the enclave on San Juan Island in the Puget Sound. My crew specializes in marine and costal retrieval -- hit me up if you're in the area and need something around the sound.

I was a ferry captain back before the Crash. I know, I'm lucky as hell to still be here.

This is "The Passerby" and yes the definitive is important, it's part of the name after all, but it's all right to call me Passer, Pass, By, or however you want to shorten it down. Southern California is where I call my home range, but given how dense and urban it was, I tend to move around a lot and follow the caravans and trains around the West. I was always bit of a gun nut, so when they were deputizing people, knowing how to aim a gun got you put higher on the list before the government pulled out.

I'm mostly a freelancer and known associate, going to start my own crew once I get the particulars sorted, but for now all I got is some good boots on my feet and some good glass on my rifle.

Though fuck, I knew I should have taken that laser eye surgery deal all those years ago. Having glasses out in the Loss ain't fun, but thank god I can just get my prescription filled and new glasses drone dropped.
