November 25, 2287 – Do you hear that sound? That’s the sound of two or three Deathclaws up above me. They’ve been patrolling for the last hour or so, trying to sniff me out. I’m hiding in a church, inside the Glowing Sea, below ground level. It had been covered up to the bottom of its belltower with dirt, and I stepped on the rotting roof next to it and fell inside. As I was trying to climb out, I heard that unmistakable snort. Then there was another, with a slightly different tone, and then – I think – yet another. I know I haven’t updated this diary in a long time, but I’m making a promise to myself right here and now that if I survive this, I’ll tell the whole story of how I got here from Covenant. On the other hand, if someone finds this Pip-Boy, please bring it to someone named “Piper” at Diamond City. Just ask anyone there and they’ll tell you where to find her. She will pay you handsomely for it. I’m encrypting the next entry, which I’m going to record in just a second. Piper, take this Pip-Boy to Nick and he will know how to decode the entry. The two of you will probably need to team up once you hear what I have to tell you.
November 25, 2287 – Encrypted Entry – I found Dr. Virgil. He’s, well, basically he’s a Super Mutant. That’s what he looks like anyway – the product of some experiments at the Institute. He told me how to get inside in return for me trying to get some of his research when I get in there. You have to go to CIT and use the Pip-Boy receiver to track down a Institute Courser and kill it. Then, use the teleportation chip inside the Courser to teleport inside the Institute. I’m not sure what you’ll find there, but please… Try to find and rescue… Oh my god… It’s Ada!
