Mission 1

Goal: "Eliminate all intruders."

Briefing

"The name's Gus Tarballs! I'm new to this whole sub-contracting deal. Usually take care of my own clients. That way,I know I get the job done right!"

"But I'm swamped! Got work coming out my drain pipe! The world's a dangerous place,and people willing to kill and be killed ain't a dime a dozen!"

"Dang! Even if they were,the nature of this business means there's always a couple of fresh openings. Who knows how long you'll last."

"Ya heard it all before,right? You're the big shot with the connections to A.I.M.. Heard a rumor that you might have even played a part in that Metavirian operation."

"Well... My background's conventional military. I've fought along side and trained the best."

"Elite commandos,deep moles,drunken paratroopers,you name it. If they're alive today,it's probably cause they paid attention when Gus Tarballs was talking!"

"Now,I'm freelance! Do mostly government work. Friendly government work! With better than civil servant pay!"

"Lot of jobs I've been gettin' lately want A.I.M. involved. Unfortunately,my ties with 'em are strained right now. So,you'll be handling the recruitment end,too."

"I'll be the go-between! Get your assignments directly from me. My clients remain confidential! My cut comes off the top!"

"How long our little arrangement is going to last... Ain't sure! Take one step at a time. See where it goes. Worked it out,so that we get paid by the mission."

"Gave ya $xxx. It's seed money. Spend it wisely! Had to put up my mobile home to get it!"

"I'm gonna start you off slow! Get a feel for you methods. See if you're full of dang horse crap or if you're gonna be of value."

"Got a long time client. Been havin' some difficulties at one of his remote facilities. Armed intruders been showin ' up and ransacking the place."

"Dealt with some of these guys myself a week ago. There were six of 'em. Only had six bullets. When the last one took his final breath,still had three in my clip."

"Ya shoot the first one in the back of the head,so the others can see,and they'll line up right quick for ya! Punks! That's what we're dealin' with!"

"A couple of locals spotted four or fives strange faces hangin' around town last night. Client's scared they may be part of the same group."

"Want ya to put a team together and we'll get your butt up there. If these punks show up,want ya "to take out every last one of 'em!"

"Your piece of the pie is $5000. My piece is none of your dang concern! Money will get better with time..."

"You just get 'em all! I don't care how many dang bullets it takes!"

Failure

"Well... here's the deal,Woody! The job was as straight ahead as they come. Dang! They were punks! Couple of bullets worth no more!"

"Could have got them to line up without firing a shot. now I have to explain why I didn't handle this one myself..."

"Be thinking long and hard before dealing with ya again."

Success but with casualities

"Well... Well... Wasn't that the little gore show! Ya got us our pay,but let's be grateful the place wasn't carpeted!"

"Important thing is ya got it done! Find myself in a tough spot again you're on the list."

Mission 2

Previous mission was successful and have casualities

"Something else came up! And I'm in a tough spot."

Previous mission was a failure

"Something tells me I'm going to regret this,but I'm gonna give ya another shot!"

Goal: "Retrieve blueprints located in a hut on the western tip of the island."

Briefing

"One of my government contacts finds herself in a delicate position. Seems somebody stole a copy of some blueprints and sold them to the wrong people."

"Blueprints  of some communication horse crap! Definitely an inside job! Word filtered back,and she put her people on it right away!"

"They tracked the blueprint to an island in the Caribbean. An island whose government isn't very sympathetic to her needs."

"They're being kept in a isolated hut on the Western tip,away from the tourists. Guarded,but nothing exaggerated enough to warrant attention."

"Kicker is.. These blueprints aren't event supposed to exist. Project got canned! So it can't involve her own people anymore than it already has."

"That's where you fit in. We'll get you and your team down there. Ya get the blue prints and you get the hell out!"

"The job's paying $7000. I'm givin' ya the full amount this time. I got a little personal reward comin' my way if ya get the job done!"

Failure

"Ya dang fool! I was gonna spend the weekend on the Rivera. Give the lady her blueprints. What do think? She's gonna settle for chocolates!"

"You've severely hampered my relationship,both personal and professional,with a key contact! Can't say I'm pleased,woody."

Success but with casualities

"The body count was a little high,but dang ya got the job done! And I got somewhere to get these blueprints, so we'll have to yak about this another time!"

"Oh... And ah,thanks! I'll be talking to ya after the weekend."

Mission 3

Goal: "Assassinate Jeff Roberts."

Note: This Mission is only available if you have won the Mission N°2.

Briefing

"Whoa... Did the weekend ever fly by! She's something. Started in this business turning spies! Dang! she's still got it! And brains to boot!"

"Don't get me wrong! I was out drumming up business! Matter of fact,got us our next job! Those blueprints allowed 'em to indentify the traitor."

"The employee's name is Jeff Roberts. Prints were all over the dang thing. Last night he flew to the Caribbean."

"Reason to believe the people who bought the blueprints from him will be tryin' to see what he remembers about them now that they no longer have 'em!"

"He's a liability! Need to assassinate him! Job's worth a lot to me and I'm willing to pay ya $10000. Ya get the urge to take anybody else out feel free!"

"I'd do it myself,but I'm kinda tired."

Failure

"Well... Ya didn't get the job done,did ya Woody? Mr. Roberts got a temporary reprieve. Now others have to clean up your mess!"

"Seems he'll be served chicken on his flight back. Not the same bad airline chicken as the rest of the passengers,but doctored bad chicken."

"It'll look just like a fatal heart attack."

Success but with casualities

"Ya made it look harder than it should have been,but my contact called and she seems pleased. Jeff Roberts is no longer a problem!"

Mission 4

Previous mission was successful and have casualities

"Heard from somebody I haven't heard from in a while. And I thought you might be interested."

Previous mission (mission N°2) was a failure

"I've cooled my heels,barely! My lady friend in the government is unemployed and not taking to me! Let's hope that's the end of it!"

"Should have taken care of that one myself. A woman slighted is a woman slighted! Now... Let's move on to other business."

Goal: "Destroy the Tyloon river bridge. If you need to cross the border,do so."

Briefing

"Picked us up a tourist assignment. Gonna do a tiny favor for another country! Dictator running it has the right friends!"

"Dictator next door has the wrong enemies! Been recruited for our deniability factor. Reason I get most of my work. Ya get caught everybody denies everything!"

"Two countries are separated by the Tyloon River. At the mouth,there's a bridge. It's being used by the insurgents to conduct nightly raids."

"Your team's gotta blow it! Ya'll play this one cautious. Been a slew of reports of ennemy snipers on both sides of that bridge."

"If ya find it necessary to cross the border,do so. They don't want to recognize it,why should we? Your share of the take is $9000!"

Failure

"What happened out there? Didn't give it your all because ya were working for a human rights abusing dictator? Well..."

"Get your head out of your butt,Woody! We're workin' for friendly people! Who happen to be doing a tyrant a favor. People that get me plenty of good work!"

"Ya give it your all no matter who the client. Ya with me? Just like a lawyer! They've done all right by it.

Success but with casualities

"Can't say I didn't warn ya about that sniper fire! Ya got the bridge,but they got your team! Initial reports had me a little worried."

"Ya got a way of keeping me chewing at the barrel! Just keep in mind,I'm counting on ya and your connections."

"Ya run into trouble recruiting from A.I.M., I won't be able to help you. And ya won't be as useful to me as ya are now!"

Mission 5

Previous mission was successful and have casualities

"Let's put those conections with A.I.M. to the test right away."

Previous mission was a failure

"Ya remember what I told ya, 'cause I got something else!"

Goal: "Find the counterfeit funds and return with them."

Briefing

"What I got goin' is a mission I don't personally want to handle. Too many old faces involved! So, I'm gonna pass it on to ya."

"Some counterfeit funds have fallen into the wrong hands. These bogus bills are as close to the real thing as you're ever gonna get!"

"Say that with confidence,'cause they were printed by the same people who make the real thing! who make to be circulated in an unfriendly country."

"Done all the time! Get a good flow of bogus currency moving in another country. Blow the whistle on it,panic hits, and the whole economy is undermined."

"Usually works like a dang charm! Except the money never made it out of this country. Armored truck was attacked. Gun batle ensued."

"Ambushers killed everyone and took everything! Sustained heavy wounds in the process. Local police are combing the countryside looking for 'em!"

"Your team's gotta beat the cops to the cash! Or a lot of people are gonna have to answer a lot of questions! Should be easy. Know where to find 'em."

"They're holed up in a building located south of your drop-off point. Get the money back and waste whoever you have to."

"Remember,if you're questioned,ya had no idea the money wasn't legit. Job's worth $12000! In legal tender!"

Failure

"Left a lot of people exposing bare butt,Woody! Cops find out the money's counterfeit,it'll go public! The armored truck compagny will want answers!"

"Widows and families will be demanding public inquiries! Senators will be givin' long winded speeches! Lid's gonna blow off the whole dang thing!"

"Dang! Before it's over it could even get Ross Perot elected!"

Success but with casualities

"Ya got the money like I asked,but can't say I'm crazy about ya leaving A.I.M. bodies behind. Cops are gonna stumble upon that scene!"

"I'm gonna look into gettin' a couple of cleaners up there,if there's still time to do something about it."

Mission 6

Previous mission was successful and have casualities

"Okay! Dang cleaners got there and did a fine job. Even took the dang building away and planted trees! Nothing anybody's gonna figure out!" 

Previous mission was a failure

"Okay Here's the deal... Ya never went on that mission. I'll even pretend it never happened and give ya another assignment!"

"Mafia's gonna take the counterfeiting rap! Some key people have been waiting for a reason to crack down on 'em. And now they have it!"

Goal:

"Penetrate building norh of your drop-off zone. Locate computer installations and get a photo of them."

Briefing

"Got us something a bit different. Gonna have to do some preliminary reconnaissance. Certain country's satellite has sent back disturbing photos."

"Show a well-defended encampment. Infra-red and electro-magnetic activity suggest some sort of command center."

"Owners and their activities are unknown. Clients need a photo of the interior to try and piece it all together. Specifically,any computer installations."

"You're to get in there,take the picture and get out with it. Reward is generous. $8000 to be exact! Ya'll find the building north of your drop-off point."

"I shoud tell ya,you ain't the first dang squad to be givin' this assignment!"

Failure

"I'd say they were waiting for ya! Dang! Gonna have to send in somebody else. You were in way over your head..."

"See if I can't dig ya up a non-military operation. Those private guys pay pretty dang good money. And the gig's usually straight forward."

Success but with casualities

"That was one dang mess! Can't say I fault ya. Intelligence didn't give ya much to go on,except  a lot of unknowns."

"Ran into some pretty determined forces. Still managed to get the risky job done where others failed! Be talkin' to ya soon!"

Mission 7

Previous mission was successful and have casualities

"Ya gonna have to make shopping for new recruits a priority .Got something else for ya!"

Previous mission was a failure

"Knew I'd find ya something! Non-military just like I promised ya. But don't be thinkin' it's gonna be a dang cakewalk."

Goal:

"Determine Anderson's whereabouts."

Briefing

"This one's corporate! Son of a C.E.O. from a major chemial company is missing. Firm does a lot of business in Central and South America."

"Strong possibility one of the drug cartels may be behind it. Kid disappeared backpacking with friends.Been seen alive since in the company of armed men."

"Don't figure they had a chance to go too far. Gettin' ya into the general vicinity won't be a problem."

"What I need ya to do is to find out his precise location. Confirm he's being held against his will, and report back."

"Want ya to avoid contact. Get in there,snoop around,locate,and get out. Ya start a war and people get hurt! Mr. Anderson don't want a war!"

"He wants to know where his son is at ! And he don't trust us enough to intervene. Get back with the info and waitin' for ya will be $10000."

Failure

There are two ways to fail this assignment:

If you don't find his son

"so what's the deal! Is he there? Not there? Ya don't know,do ya? I hate passin' up money! And I hate disappointin' my clients,too!"

"I told him it was a lock! No complications! Ain't easy gettin' contracts for armed intervention! Ya gotta pour it on thick! Civilians can be real finicky."

"Now... you'll have to excuse me while I go grove!"

His son is killed

"That was sloppy! Dang! I thought I told ya to keep a low profile! Not to go in there with ya guns blazing! Ya! Ya located him all right..."

"But I was gonna sell his old man on a rescue mission. Had a plan drawn up and everything! Could have been more serious money,Woody."

"Ain't gonna happen now..."

Success but with casualities

Note:This briefing does not exist if too many of your men are killed the mission is failed.

Mission 8

Note:Only available if Mission N°7 was won.

Goal:

"Rescue Anderson,keep him alive and get him to either beach area for evacuation by boat."

Briefing

"Not only was the old man happy,ya blew the socks off him! Dang! Bagged us another mission pronto! We gotta go back and get the kid out."

"Figure ya understand that the old man want his son back alive. So keep the gunfire contained. Don't want a stray bullet comin' between you and $12000!"

"Arranged for two drop zones. Gonna land ya on different beaches. Boat will return to pick ya up at either one. Just get Anderson there alive!"

Failure

"Hope old man Anderson kept a photo album! That's about the only way he's ever gona see his kid again."

"Ya think I could just call and tell 'em? I was never good at breaking bad news in person. Tears me apart... Crying an all that other horse crap!"

Success but with casualities

"Suffered some casualties! Thought your knowledge of the area might have kept that to a minimum. Ah... What's losing a couple of mercs for a boy's life!"

"Especially,when that boy has a rich old man,who pays in a timely fashion. Right? Just don't forget A.I.M.'s a limited resource. Don't want to tick 'em all off!"

Mission 9

Previous mission was successful and have casualities

"We're a team,Woody! hope you appreciate all the work I've been gettin' for you."

Previous mission was a failure

"Just so you're up to speed. The kid's body was dumped just outside the embassy during the night! I changed my phone number. Ya might want to do the same."

Goal:

"Deliver the briefcase to the double agent code-named Blue Moon and ensure that he survives to complete delivery."

Briefing

"Been workin' hand in hand  a lot lately. Maybe we should open up an office together. Only take primo assignemnts like the one I got for ya here."

"It's big league! Big time! Ya can score a lot of points with the people who count on this one! Peope who always got something to get done!"

"Our government has a double agent code named Blue Moon planted deep within the intelligence community of our old,cold war enemy."

"Anything they want passed on to the other side they give him. Usually,horse crap,decoy stuff, played out to look legit. Blue Moon's ticket through the ranks".

"This time,he's waiting for a special delivery. Your team's gonna make it. But ya'll have to cross an old enemy's border to do it."

"And they're very particular about their borders. Even more so,now that they're changing  all the time. Ya'll use the back door,won't ask for passports".

"It's a high security area,doubt they'll be asking ya anything! Blue Moon will watch for ya. Ya give him the briefcase and ya disappear."

"The documents are important! Contain information about a previous mission ya worked on. Blue Moon will pass the information on."

"Depending on ther Russians' reaction,our side will know whether our old enemy is behind it or as clued out as we are! Good luck!"

"Oh,ya the important stuff. Get the briefcase there and your bank account goes up by $9000."

Failure

"can I open my eyes? Will it all be better? Just what in dangnation is goin 'on! Those were border guards!"

"Your team should have showed 'em who's who! ya blew it! Dang! Is my stomach on fire! I gotta take something..."

Success but with casualities

"Told ya those guys got a thing for borders! Blue Moon has the documents. We'll see how everything plays out."
