Listen up buddy, I don't know what your motivations are to this job, I don't know whether or not you did all those years of medical training just for access to the RIG suits, and I certainly don't know about any assassination contracts on miners you might have. What I do know, is that you're a good guy. It's the most important thing about your job. You have to be on death's door every other second so you can save the Shaft Miners if they eventually fuck up. A wise man once told me that it's dangerous to go alone, which is exactly why you are here.

Mining Base
The Mining Base

What do I do? Where do I go?

You'll arrive on the station already equipped to deal with most minor injuries:

Item Description
First-Aid Kit
This will fit inside your backpack, it has a number of useful items inside it to allow you to help your miners: Medical gauze Brutepack.png Brutepack.png Ointment.png Ointment.png Epinephrine medipen Healthanalyzer.png
Global Positioning System (GPS)
Make sure your miners have their GPS on with a unique label before going out there. Make sure your GPS is on too, it may help them find their way to safety.
Medical Webbing
This will be fitted onto your belt slot. It starts empty but you can place a number of useful items in here for quick access. Experiment and find the right setup for you!
Mining Boots
A pair of sturdy boots, great for treading the rough floor of Lavaland. You can store a knife in these!
Folded roller.png
Roller Bed
Used to drag bodies to Medbay without pissing off the janitor. Since there's no janitor on Lavaland, don't worry about the hassle of using one.
Knife survivial.png
Survival Knife
Use it for butchering the wildlife (hit while on harm intent). It's as strong against mobs as a pickaxe, but you can't mine with it. You can store it in your boots to save space, but remember to alt-click the boots to draw the knife back out.
Meson Health Scanner HUD
A heads-up display that scans the humans in view and provides accurate data about their health status. In addition it allows you to see basic structural and terrain layouts through walls, regardless of lighting condition. Wear this at all times.

Your locker is located in your office on the mining station. Make sure to grab a few supplies out of your locker in advance:

Item Description
Can bring miners out of death and into crit if they have only been dead a short time. Try to stabilize them quickly!
Handheld scanner.gif
Handheld Crew Monitor
A miniature machine that tracks suit sensors across the station. Use this to monitor your miners when on the move.
Medical Belt
Like your webbing, but for holding medical items only. Think of these as your first-aid kit, but on a belt.
Somewhat antiquated thanks to the prevalence of the proto-kinetic accelerator and resonator. Nevertheless it can be used to dig wide tunnels, will fit inside your webbing, and can provide shortcuts through rocks towards injured miners.
Pocket Fire Extinguisher
A light and compact fibreglass-framed model fire extinguisher. Take this with you whenever you leave the safety of your base.
Combat hypo.png
QMC Bicaridine Injector
A quick-mix capital combat injector loaded with bicaridine. It contains 50 units of bicaridine and injects it 5 units at a time. A long-lasting supply.
Combat hypo.png
QMC Kelotane Injector
A quick-mix capital combat injector loaded with kelotane. It contains 50 units of kelotane and injects it 5 units at a time. A long-lasting supply.
Toxin First-Aid Kit
Contains a number of items to help prevent and heal poisons: Syringe (Charcoal) Syringe (Charcoal) Syringe (Charcoal) Anti-Toxin pill Anti-Toxin pill Anti-Toxin pill Healthanalyzer.png

Your office is located to the left of the mining base, in the lower-left corner. You will find everything you need to help your miners there:

Item Description
All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)
An all-terrain vehicle built for traversing through Lavaland with ease. Prevents slows from injuries - making it excellent for helping miners even in mid-battle. Don't forget to place your keysAtv keys.pnginside it first.
Freezer crate.png
Blood Freezer
Contains blood packsBlood Pack.pngthat can be attached to your IVIV Drip.png(you have two!) to transfuse blood to your miners. Don't give patients the wrong kind of blood! Blood packs can be labeled with a pen.
Crew Monitoring Console.gif
Crew Monitoring Console
The Crew Monitoring Console reports the location and vital statistics of your miners via their suit sensors. The downside is that it's entirely dependent on them bothering to turn those sensors on, so make sure they do.
Outpost Cameras.gif
Outpost Camera Console
Allows you to access all of the mining station's cameras.
Sleepers contain an unlimited supply of five different chemicals. Perfect if you don't want to use up supplies.

The 10 rules to miner survival

Now, the reason you are on this asteroid is because many miners have perished due to Nanotrasen migrating the mining colony to a richer asteroid. Not just minerals either! There's roaming beasts all over the place eager for an opportunity to lash out at you and snap your neck! Nanotrasen considered this, but the additional plasma was more cost effective than the lives of their employees. However, now that you're here, there won't he any more dead miners. Right? Right! There's just a few things they probably didn't tell you in the flyer, so pay attention!

Be robust

Know medicine and miner mechanics. Know how to beat a goliath silly.

A requirement for many jobs on the station, but this one gets a special notion. If you don't know how to rub ointment onto someone while in the vacuum of space, you're not going to be of any use.

Stay fit

Keep everyone's life at 100% at all times. Don't be stingy with bruisepacks.

So the miner accidentally hit himself with a pickaxe in the helmet. 5 brute damage? Patch him up. The last thing you'd want is for your buddy to go into crit while fighting a watcher, 3 damage short of killing it with all the weapons on their corpse.

Beware of narrow tunnels

Always make sure you can move in any direction.

Most of the radio logs we recovered of our first (deceased) applicants of the "buddy system" went somewhere along the lines of:
Joe Morris says, "I see some silver over at the wall there"
Joe Morris says, "There is gibtonite so watch out"
Julie Stone says, "I'll keep watch."
Julie Stone says, "GOLIATH!"
Joe Morris says, "Shit it got me"
Loud cracking can be heard as the goliath hits the gibtonite in the wall, entangling both miners next to it, followed by a "FUUUUU" and an explosion.

Don't neglect your gps

Keep your gps on you with custom initials. Urge your buddies to do the same.

So you've managed to run into a goliath while face-checking a corridor. Great job you. You better hope your buddy drags you out, because if he doesn't you're never going to see the light of genetics. If you've set your GPS, the mining medic might just take your ice chilled corpse to the cloning bay.

Travel LIGHT

Make sure you're the brightest star around. Nothing is more dangerous than the false sense of security your mesons give you.

Imagine this. You and your miners are digging their dwarf system merrily. Then out of nowhere, some xeno pops up and takes two of you for dinner. How'd it happen? But I had full vision? This was just the mesons tricking you. To maximize your usefulness, turn on your PDA and a helmet light, then carry a lantern or seclite on your belt and in both pockets. You'll illuminate the asteroid as good as it gets and your situational awareness improves by miles.

Don't be a hero

Possibly the most important rule of all. Don't risk your own life, you can always clone them.

You don't want to take a risk for no reason other than trying to go for the "Robust guy look", simply take a step back and keep yourself safe. Unfortunately you won't make yourself look too impressive if a xeno is currently converting you to feces. However, remember that there are certain circumstances where perhaps this rule should be ignored, so that maybe you save someone who makes it so you don't have to drag him to Medbay or making sure that you will still have a partner to back you up later - as they might be responsible for saving your life later. They could be pissed when you let them die, but you can patch him up if you live. He can't fix you.

Play dead

Hit sleep if you can't possibly get out.

So you find yourself trapped in this maze of monsters and madness? Just play dead. We have figured out that most monsters like their meat fresh, so if you can force yourself to nap in a crucial moment (not to hard to do looking at your working hours) you might just safe your hide.

When in doubt, know your way out.

Dig your way back to the station if you lost track of tunnels.

Instead of roaming those dangerous age old cultist tunnels trying to find your way out, just dig. No one will mind if you lose your way in there. Those tunnels do look pretty alike after all.

The buddy system

If there are no miners, don't go mining. If a miner doesn't have a medic yet, go after them.

Why don't legions attack each other? Probably hard instinct. Either way around, you should do the same. Don't get tempted to split up or do the mining work yourself, because digging a tunnel is the best way to get caught with your pants down.

The job change

If you have no confidence in your miners, run like hell to the Hop's desk.

While Nanotrasen doesn't exactly approve of this, they don't discourage it either. A lot of effort and resources go into cloning, and a lot of paperwork afterwards. From time to time, it may very well be best to pull out.
