Conversation with Guri
Guri: Thank you for coming, %TU.
PC: What is this place and who are you?
Guri: I am Guri, lieutenant to Prince Xizor and this is the Quarantine Zone.
PC: Quarantine? Is there a disease?
Guri: Well yes, you could call it that. There was an accident at an Imperial Research and Prison Facility and as a result many...well, most in the area have become infected.
PC: How is it spread?
Guri: All research into the problem suggest it is an airborne virus and highly contagious.
PC: There is no cure?
Guri: No, not really. Once you have contracted the virus it will eventually kill the host.
PC: Why haven't the Imperial Navy used orbital bombardment?
Guri: There is reason to believe that Lord Vader himself needs something inside the Research Facility.
PC: I suppose he hasn't had much luck finding someone suicidal.
Guri: Actually, reports show that the Empire has sent in several volunteers.
PC: Are they using Zero-G suits? How are they avoiding the virus?
Guri: Reports show there is a doctor inside the quarantine zone that is providing an anti-virus. Several sources have confirmed the doctor is in a hold out camp just inside the quarantine zone.
PC: What could possibly be so valuable in this research facility?
Guri: We contacted you because you have already done some fact finding on the subject. The Empire believes they can mutate the virus to make a super soldier. Considering you actually obtained the scientific data on the virus genome without the Empire knowing, you seemed like a resourceful candidate.
PC: Oh that...Why the interest if it kills everyone?
Guri: I guess you aren't completely familiar with the side-effects of the virus then.
PC: Why don't you educate me?
Guri: The virus appears to infect and kill the host rapidly. Not long after the host's death the virus takes over the motor functions of the dead host's body.
PC: Are you telling me that when someone dies the virus re-animates their dead body?
Guri: Yes. We believe this is why the Empire is so interested. They are not researching a live super soldier with special powers. They are interested in cultivating a dead being that is hard to destroy and can spread their own infection to an enemy.
PC: Does their evil know no bounds?
Guri: We need your help, %TU. Can you infiltrate the quarantine zone and beat the Imperials from getting their hands on the virus?
PC: What is Xizor going to do with it? Sell it to the highest bidder?
Guri: I assure you Xizor has his own plans and it doesn't involve selling it.
PC: What if I refuse?
Guri: It may be hard to keep the fact that you have the scientific data a secret, %TU. As you have noticed there is a vested interest in keeping it a secret.
PC: So if I don't help, I die, and if I try and fail, I am dead as well.
Guri: But if you try and succeed, Xizor is a very very generous individual.
PC: Well, since I have no choice, might as well tell me your plans.
Guri: The plan is simple. Make your way into the quarantine zone and receive the anti-virus. Once you have obtained a defense against the virus you will need to find the research facility and search for the original strain of the virus.
PC: What if no such strain exists?
Guri: We will be monitoring your progress, %TU. We are certain the strain exists but it is imperative that you arrive before other interested parties. Is there anything else you need to discuss?
PC: So there are survivors of this virus?
Guri: Quite a few based on reports.
PC: Why aren't they being evacuated?
Guri: There have been attempts but most have proven to be fatal to rescue parties.
PC: I see.
Guri: Any other questions?
PC: What symptoms do the infected exhibit?
Guri: Symptoms of the disease are the sudden onset of seizures followed by a phase where the victim appears dead.
PC: And then they just wake up?
Guri: Sometime after death the victim suddenly reanimates and becomes very violent. Any non-infected in the immediate area risk being attacked and, if subdued, eaten by the infected.
PC: Wait...what? Eaten?
Guri: The infected are apparently in a constant state of hunger which appears to be the motivation for attacking.
PC: This is horrible.
Guri: Any other questions?
PC: How did the virus escape in the first place?
Guri: Lord Vader is convinced the Rebellion is behind the outbreak. We think it was a research accident. Did you have any other questions?
PC: No, I'm ready.
Guri: I have uploaded the details to your datapad. We have procured a stolen Imperial authorization code that shows you are working as an Imperial volunteer. Anyone who examines the authorization will think you are working for Vader himself.
