Welcome to The Dharma Initiative (Clan: Merchants of Fate, Tag: DHARMA). The Dharma Initiative (Department of Heuristics And Research of Material Applications) will study the strange phenomenon that have swept across Everett and keep the hostiles at bay. The Dharma Initiative will organize survivors and restore balance. The Dharma Initiative will create order from chaos. Namaste….

SPECIALIZED SAFE HOUSES

  • THE ARROW: Combat Training Facility. Fully upgraded (LEVEL 10) Gym, Weight Room, Boxing Ring, and Shooting Range.
  • THE STAFF: Fully upgraded Medical and Living Quarters
  • THE HYDRA: Fully upgraded Library and Workbench
  • THE ORCHID: All food production and rest facilities fully upgraded
  • MANY, MANY MORE SPECIALIZED AND GENERAL-PURPOSE SAFE HOUSES (for rest/SP regeneration, storage, etc.) THROUGHOUT EVERETT (MAPS 1, 2, and 3)

With our developed network of safe houses, you’ll never be far from a safe sanctuary to rest and regenerate, no mater where you are. We always welcome new recruits, and we offer you the keys to survive and prosper in the new world. DHARMA offers you protection. Come join us.

THE DHARMA BRAND

Safehouses that have met the rigorous quality control standards of the DHARMA Initiative will be stamped with the DHARMA Seal of Approval (◊). This mark will be featured next to the names of sanctioned safehouses as they appear on the map, and will let travelers know which safe houses will guarantee optimal resting amenities.

To earn the DHARMA Seal of Approval, a safehouse must meet ALL of the following criteria:

1. Founded no less than 10 blocks from any pre-existing safehouse
2. Level 5 Living Quarters
3. Level 1 Storage or greater
4. Level 1 Armory or greater
5. Level 2 Entrance or greater

Look for the ◊ for the DHARMA guarantee of rest and safety. Only the clan leader is permitted to apply the seal, so if you know of a safehouse that meets these standards, contact me for official inspection.

Ella (and all concerned),

Since The Hydra already has a fully upgraded Library and Workbench, it doesn’t serve any purpose to work on them at Jak’s HQ or elsewhere. Like the combat training facilities at The Arrow, they only need to be used once to raise certain skill caps to 200 (in this case, Smarts and Technical skills). Besides, fully upgrading the workbench requires a medium chainsaw, which costs $4,000, so it’d be a huge waste of money for a redundant facility.

That said, thanks for the update.

Jak’s HQ:
I have all the wood panels for the entrance and living quarters (LQ), the 2×4s for the entrance and armory, the nails for the LQ and the mallets and pipe for the army

need a safehouse that i can call free water and food source any suggestions

 
Flag Post

Assassin,

There is no safe house at (17, 32) nor should there be as it would be within restricted range of a pre-existing safe house (AND THAT WOULD BE A BIG NO-NO). That, however, is beside the point, as I repeat, there is no safe house at that location.

I suspect that you’re confused and don’t understand what a safe house actually is.

(hint: purple, not green…)

just read your post no safehouse got it

 
Flag Post

Assassin,

We have a number of safehouses that offer free food and/or water, so just get it from one of those. Otherwise, help build those facilities at a safehouse that doesn’t already offer them.

Building a new safehouse wouldn’t mean that any food and water produced there would be your personal property. Rather, it would be available to any clan member who wants them, like at all safehouses.

Actually, this raises a valid question for discussion. If any members (or even non-members, for that matter) have insight on successful money-making in the current ZP economy, you’re welcome to post your tips here. In my experience, what may seem obvious to some may not be obvious to others. So, if something is working for you, then by all means, share your wisdom!

For starters, I’ll offer this…

$ – Indoor areas now tend to offer a greater density of looting options than you’ll find on the street, but the catch is that you’ll have to clear each room of hostiles before you can do any looting. So, once you do, invest a little more SP to board the place up adequately. This will keep hostiles from reclaiming the space, and you’ll be able to come back and loot it again every few days without wasting SP, HP, and ammo (and thus, money) on clearing it again. Do this with a cluster of buildings and you’ve got a loot farm!

$ – While ranged weapons are a necessity, ammo can easily be the biggest drain on your income. So, conserve ammo by making sure you have a good melee weapon for a sidearm as well as the stats to support it. Crafting a Ripper or a Driller could be a good option, and even if you make marksmanship your primary focus, be sure to also invest some points in strength and close combat regularly. If you have more down time and empty ammo casings than money, you may also consider buying some potassium from Autumn Leaves for $160, which can be used in crafting ammo. It can be a cheaper alternative to buying ammo, at least to supplement your munitions stash.

Just a note to my fellow glorious clan members: Vlad has let himself go… he allowed a mob of puny level 1 zeds beat him down. I know it shocked me too! So in your trips through town today please take a moment to pay your sympathies to him, then to me for the a$$ kicking I’m about to take for posting this 0.0

Oh, Scotty, Scotty, Scotty…

You really should have just left me there…
But, just to show what a nice guy I am, I’ll return the favor and revive you once I’m done with you.
Now hold still…

CLANMATES:

If you’re planning on bringing lumber to The Clubhouse (and I REALLY hope you are), please use it one the Armory or Storage first, as building without these facilities on site makes construction a real pain.

Just a quick note—-I just brought 15 2×4 lumbers to the clubhouse, so we only need a couple more for the time being.
