Zero-G Cave
Bad enough we got this weird cave down here...

Tuff is a miner with a violent fear of anything related to space and floating, to the point of getting sick just by thinking about it. This is a great inconvenience to the practice of their work as the great depth of the cave where they mine ore makes it near gravityless, and they are next the Zero-G section of the cave, where future astronauts come to train (and taunt them) on a daily basis.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Initial Conversation[edit | edit source]

  • "Hey, hey. Nice of you to drop down."
    • >I'm getting some zero-g time in.
    • >Give me the dirt.
    • >Guess where I'm going today.
      • "Oh, no. Nooooo, no no no. No way.
        You want to run off into space, that's your business, but don't make me, you know, think about it.
        Bad enough we got this weird cave down here..."

Followup Conversation[edit | edit source]

  • "Hey, you're back. You need something?"
    • >I'm getting some zero-g time in.
    • >Give me the dirt.
    • >Guess where I'm going today.
      • "Oh, no. Nooooo, no no no. No way.
        You want to run off into space, that's your business, but don't make me, you know, think about it.
        Bad enough we got this weird cave down here..."

Followup Conversation (Sick)[edit | edit source]

  • "Hurgh..."

After going to space[edit | edit source]

  • "Oh, I thought I heard you lift off. Change your mind?"
    • >I'm getting some zero-g time in.
    • >Give me the dirt.

Zero-g[edit | edit source]

  • "So you're going in there? In the cave? Hnnngh...
    What? No, I'm fine. Great. Great and fine."
    • >You don't look fine...
      • "Well you know I hate that cave so I don't know why you're making me talk about it.
        Fweh... now I've got hand sweats."
    • >Yeah, I'm going to drift around down there for a while.
      • "Eurgh..."
        • >Just going to float upside down and whatnot.
          • "H-hurk..."
            • >Just, y'know, ricochet off the walls. Spin around a lot. That kind of thing.
          • "You're... Urp... You're the worst."
            • >I know."
            • >That was too far, wasn't it.
          • ""You’re... Urp... You’re the worst.""
            • >Sorry."
            • >I know."
        • >...Sorry. I'll stop.
          • "I'm going to sit here and think about flat, motionless rocks for awhile."

Dirt[edit | edit source]

  • "Some fresh dirt? Not much happening down here lately. Let me think...
    Come to think of it, Tektite saw something crash outside of the village crater earlier. That's new and different."
    • >Oh, hey. How 'bout that.
      • "Yeah, they were on firewatch with the old scout launcher and saw smoke, so they went to check it out. “Safety first,” right?
        ...No, I'm kidding. I said that to Tektite once. Pretty rude how long they laughed for, if you ask me."
    • >Is anything on fire?
      • "Probably on a little. Tektite checked out the crash site with the old firewatch scout launcher and saw smoke, so they headed over to stamp out any leftover fires.
        Well, I better get back to work. This ore's not going to mine itself, you know."
