I'm gone for a few months and the world doesn't waste any time going to shit. Everywhere you turn there're infected — and non-infected — trying to kill you. Mankind is back to the food chain, baby! I'm kind of shocked I've survived this long.
These sewers seem pretty safe. Unlimited exits/entrances make it easier to defend, and if anyone gets in here, I can lose them in the maze.
I might not be tough, but I am quick. Maybe I just need to bide my time down here until it all gets sorted up there. I think I'll become a sewer mole-man for a while.
Wish me luck.
- One word in the displayed text of this note differs from the text in the artifact itself. In the second sentence of the second paragraph, the displayed text states: "Limited exits/entrances make it easier to defend...". This makes the sentence make more logical sense, since unlimited exits/entrances would make something harder to defend, not easier.
- If the player looks closely at the note before picking it up, they can see that the artifact does not match the image seen when viewed from Joel's inventory. Instead the artifact appears to be the Looting Note.
