The following are transcripts of the pocket secretaries found in Překážka (the southern part of Prague) in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Many of the pocket secretaries contain plot-related details or information on various background characters in the game.
[NO SUBJECT] Edit
Found in the hidden floor stash in Adam Jensen's Apartment.
If your reading this, bratán, it means you got our little welcome package. Good. Now you know what mark to leave if you need to get in touch. Memorize those sites. but use them sparingly. We got other people using them too.
In a few days, the pilot will contact you. You met her once before -- Spanish girl with the large sidearm in Detroit. She's solid. Trustworthy. And VERY capable. We're getting her false papers and a job at Lebedev Global. Figured you might need someone permanent watching your back.
I'm glad yoursic doing this, bratán. I know you still don't trust us but we KNOW the TF is tied to our common enemey'ssic activities. Find outhowsic and we'll bring them down together. Just like we did with Belltower.
Found in apartment unit #22.
From: Andreas Jedinak
I keep hearing rumors that something is wrong. Someone's dealing Neon behind our backs. Do you think it could be Ivan? I never trusted this guy. I changed the password to our computer just in case. The password is now DobraNoc.
If you want me to do something about Ivan, just give the word.
Requested supplies Edit
Found in a storage unit in the courtyard.
Here's what I could get for you.
Various medical supplies as requested (inventory list is in the container).
Includes viral-type biomaterial from our BSL-2 stock so take standard precautions when handling it.
Note: I wasn't comfortable acquiring the chemical reagents you suggested on the list so you'll have to improvise with whatever you have, sorry. There wasn't technically any "spare" and I'm walking a fine line as it is.
You'll have to let me know how the test come out. Keep me informed and good luck!
Tracking Status? Edit
Found on one of the mercenaries who infiltrate Adam Jensen's apartment during SM06: 01011000.
To: Blue Retrieval
From: Editorial Desk
Everett's getting impatient. If one of your men did in fact manage to get a tracking device on the disk, then you should have it by now. I don't care what you have to do or who you have to kill. She CANNOT be allowed to go free.
Found in Adam Jensen's apartment during the third visit to Prague, if his apartment is ransacked by the mercenaries encountered during SM06: 01011000.
To: Red Retrieval
From: Editorial Desk
We don't think you understand what it is you've done. You cannot possibly imagine how dangerous she is now that she is free. Did she convince you to feel sorry for her? Did she make you believe she was real? A testament to how good we are. But make no mistake: we will ﬁnd her.
Fountain Area Edit
Shipment probs Edit
Found the locked basement room of Svobody Beer.
To: Teresa Petrauskas
From: Pavel Davidoff
Manny's really nervous about the latest shipment and starting to say he wants out. There's not a lot I can say to make him feel better unless you go back to the usual schedule. The handlers at the Utulek warehouses are used to seeing the driver rosters and I'm worried the lad's going to fold if they start asking too many questions. I know you think the medicines and stuff is important but don't want him to lose his job or worse because of me helping you.
If you really can't wait until the usual then you're welcome to move the stuff yourself. It's all in the basement at DaiTaga as normal. 5622 will get you inside if I'm not around.
My advice? Sit, wait, and don‘t fuck up a good thing.
Thanks for the support Edit
Found on a rooftop area near the fountain area, near Felice Ullmann's apartment
To: Eva Corne
From: Garland Oakes
For the attention of Eva:
Welcome to Ad Astra! This message should help you get started with what to do next.
Ad Astra is a community-led support group dedicated to helping our augmented neighbors in their day-to-day lives and relies on voluntary aid from naturals just like you. Our efforts can be as large and ambitious as promoting official government support all the way to simply lending a sympathetic ear. The augmented are still human beings and deserve compassion, understanding, and dignity just like the rest of us.
Be sure to join us for our weekly recap next Wednesday at our modest community center across from the Zelen apartment building - second floor. We offer basic services and advice so feel free to use our facilities.
Thanks again for supporting our cause, Together we can create a healthier space and attitude towards the augmented.
Can't get in the server room Edit
Found in a restricted zone in the metro station.
To: Kat Pololanik
From: Alex Prazak
Maintenance said a burst pipe has messed up the panel providing power to the door but they can‘t fix it until tomorrow. It's switched off for now because it was electrifying stuff around it. Looked scary as hell when it was on. Either way, door isn't opening until it's repaired so you should come over yourself and make sure they're on it. For now just give IT permission to patch me remote access (pw is Messier43). I'd rather be out of the station anyway with all the extra police hanging around. - ALX

Church of the MachineGod Edit
Power issues Edit
Found in room 92.
To: Children of the Singularity
From: Erik Simmons
As the Ascension approaches we must ensure that Mother and the First Children are protected at all costs. As the CC is drawing on all available electricity, we will be losing power to keypads more regularly. I will be resetting codes as they fail and updating all of you as they change. For second floor access the new door code is 0010. I know this is an inconvenience, but be vigilant brothers and sisters! The Singularity is upon us!
Mother calls to you Edit
Found in room 90.
To: Vance Ellery
From: Erik Simmons
Mother has called upon you, Vance. You are to be one of the First Children. 0011 is the code to rebirth!
Be ready if they come Edit
Found in room 91.
To: Children of the Singularity
From: Erik Simmons
It is possible the police will turn their attention towards us as they seek to place the blame for the attack at Ruzicka station at the feet of the augmented. If that happens, you must take up arms and protect Mother and the First Children at all costs. Use code 0101 to access the armory, then meet the flesh-flawed at our gates.
Note: A cultist outside of room 94 carries a pocket secretary, but this pocket secretary is bugged and does not provide a viewable message.
Vincent Van Aug Edit
Worried About You Edit
Found the room where Irenka Bauer is encountered.
To: Irenka Bauer
From: Thomas Bauer
Dear sister, I no longer know what to do. I've entertained your science fiction fantasies for months now, but I fear it's only making things worse. You are rehearsing for a role that does not exist, using "robot Helena" to hide from what the world has become. I want to help you, Irenka, but I don't know how. Please, tell me what to do.
Northern Courtyard Edit
The following pocket secretaries are found in the courtyard northeast of Zeleň Apartments, where there is a small restricted area containing a stash of Neon.
Neon Strategy Edit
Found in the locked safe in the courtyard. Although the message is signed by Bonbon, the message is addressed to Ivan Sirko instead. This may be an oversight.
To: Ivan Sirko
The Dvali want us to move all in with Neon. They now control 100% of the production and they want us to control 100% of the distribution. 60% of our profits will go to the Dvali. We keep 35%. The chemists get 5%.
Head to 22 Zelen if you need to restock The code to the apartment is 0310.
PS. Repeat business and positive word of mouth are essential right now. This means we have to avoid selling to augs, no matter how much they beg.
Another Neon Victim Edit
Found in the area behind a breakable wall of the courtyard.
To: Andreas Jedinak
The chemists were right. Neon is fatal to anyone who has Neuropozyne in their system. Witness exhibit A. Do whatever you have to to get this body out of sight. Bury it, burn it, stuff it in a wall, I don't care - just get rid of it.
And keep this information to yourself. We want Neon to have a good reputation with the kids. Neon is color; Neon is hope. "Potentially fatal" is not the best selling point.
Last Resort Edit
Found during the second visit to Prague, in the courtyard.
To: Mina Majerová
From: Darko Synek
Mina, the dealers are saying they only sell Neon now. They claim the Neuropozyne business is dead because there aren't enough of us left...
Our only hope is that Bonbon has Neuropozyne reserves somewhere in her apartment. 22 Zelen. The code to get in is 0310. I know it's dangerous, but what choice do we have?
Tourism Office Edit
Retire Walker Edit
Carried by one of the mercenaries during SM06: 01011000
To: Red Retrieval
From: Editorial Desk
Morgan Everett doesn't like contractors who ask questions. Your friend Walker is very good at what he does, but curiosity and lack of discretion are faults the people at Picus can no longer tolerate. I don't care which of you recovers the disk or how. But once it's done, Walker's to be taken out.
Koníčky & Hračky Edit
Re: These 2 ASAP Edit
Carried by the document agent.
To: Franz Trefil
From: Drahomir Konicky
Confirmed for "Bauer" and "Brod." Milena has been upstairs all day forging their new aug permits. We can easily get 2 more payment rounds out of them before delivery. Then I give them maybe 1 week max before they get shipped off anyway. I can probably get in 3 - maybe 4 - "update payments" out of them before that happens.
Found in the courtyard, near a breakable wall.
To: Bartek Štěrba
From: Franz Trefil
Drahomir says Milena tried to sneak out again last night. Everyone keep eyes on that vent of hers. She‘s got too much work to do to be allowed to leave whenever she wants.
The Konicky Legacy Edit
Carried by one of the forgery thugs in the indoor area.
To: Michal Trefil
Drahomir doesn't want us changing the security hub code. Apparently it must always be the birth year of his precious matka. I have changed the code back to 1980 to keep him happy.
Police Checkpoint and Area East of Checkpoint Edit
Hideout Security Concerns Edit
Carried by Drahomir.
To: Drahomir Konicky
From: Franz Trefil
Our little forger snuck out through the vents again last night. I know you think she is too scared to stay away for good, that she will always come crawling back out of fear... but still. Without her our forgery ring is nothing! I understand how much you hate the idea of making structural changes to your mother's old building, but keep in mind that Konicky & Hracky Toys wasn't built to sustain our kind of operation. We need to do more to keep Milena inside - and to keep everyone else out.
Our new place Edit
Found in an apartment near Radko Perry's campaign office.
It’s me again! I bagged the trash and scrubbed the place with some weird gel I found and it looks WAY better. You'll see when you get here. Now I know why it was the only place that wasn't being advertised at a stupidly high price. Some old woman outside said there were musicians living here but they couldn't afford it (really??? how broke can you be?) I think one of them must be the guy who runs the Music Box in town. I found a card stuck to the wall. Which reminds me, we now own a guitar :D. Miss you, baby.
Be safe xxxx
Safe Access Edit
Carried by the security guard in Radko Perry's office, during the second visit to Prague
To: Security Detail
From: Radko Perry
Mr. Security Man, I forget your name. You are keeping an eye out, yes? Listen, there is something in my safe that I want you to dispose of after your shift tonight. The code is 0109. Rip it, burn it, swallow it. All of the above! You see how I trust you with important matters? You are like faithful dog to me. Continue to be faithful dog and you will go very far, my friend.
Radko for Prez!
RE: what should we do!! Edit
Found in the area accessible by a vent opening in Helena Volin's apartment, which is above the police checkpoint.
Lena, be calm. I'll be home soon. Hide what we agreed behind the wall and let me do the talking when they arrive tonight. They're just thugs, but surely any money is better than nothing. We'll have our permits soon.
From: Helena Volin
To: Petr Volin
Subject: what should we do!!
Petr, this is the message he sent below. They're not giving up!! We can't afford to spend everything we have. This was a stupid idea Petr. What are we going to do, these men are dangerous. I can't believe we're livngsic like this.
Subject: FW: A DEAL IS A DEAL
PERMITS DONT COME CHEAP FOR A REASON SO THE PRICE IS WHAT IT IS. THE GOV ISNTsic GOING TO LOOK WELL ON ME HELPING PEOPLE LIKE YOU GET OUT OF PRAGUE SO I MAKE SURE IT SWORTHsic OUR TIME TO GIVE YOU A HAPPY ENDING. WELL BE THERE AS AGREED SO MAKE SURE YOU AHVEsic THE MONEY. ALL OF IT. PLEASURE DOING BUSINESS WITH YOU.
Vicinity of the Time Machine Edit
Final Notice Edit
Found in the building to the northeast of the Time Machine.
To: Kamil Horak
From: Inna Berk
Dear Mr. Horak,
Thank you for understanding.
Director - Department of Natural Affairs, Prague
Place for your stuff Edit
Found in the sewer passageway to Koller's dungeon, near the body of Kamil Horak.
To: Kamil Horak
From: Vaclav Koller
Sorry to hear about the eviction, man. Fucking bastards.
There's a storage area behind my shop, you can keep some of your stuff in there. The door code is: 1984. Hell, you can stay there if you need to.
Jussic make sure you keep it to yourself, I don't like unwanted visitors.
The following pocket secretaries are found in the main sewers system accessible near Zeleň Apartments.
Neon Reactor Codes Edit
Found in the Neon reactor room in the Neon production lab.
To: Harmony Knapková
From: Michal Svoboda
You've been very stubborn about keeping the Neon reactor codes to yourself. You say it's for our protection. That you're the only one who knows how to safely maintain the reactors...
I think you're full of shit, Harmony. And so does Czarnobog. Your knowledge of the lab isn't going to keep you alive forever. Especially if we find out that you're the one sneaking out product.
Make no mistake, the lab is ours now. It belongs to the Dvali. And so do you.
FW: RE: Please help Edit
Found on the body of a deceased civilian in a gas-filled section of the sewers.
Paulina. Go to the sewers beneath the Poor District. Tell Jacinta what I've said and she'll show you how and where you can get in. Don't talk to ANYONE else about this. After dark, 8pm SHARP. DO NOT GO EARLIER OR LATER THAN THAT. This is very important. The gate will open with 6122. I will meet you there.
[FAILED DELIVERY] You won‘t believe this. Edit
Found in a gas-filled room behind the breakable wall near Viznik.
To: Mondo Velk
From: Vik Melnyk
The message could not be sent.
FROM: Vik Melnyk
TO: Mondo Velk
SUBJECT: You won‘t believe this.
You won‘t believe this. Why did I run? How can I be so stupid? I'm not even augmented, I just panicked. These fucking corrupt cops, that wasn't even a real checkpoint. And what kind of cops, throw fucking grenades at you when you run away? If you can track my signal, please send someone, I'm stuck in between two buildings or something, I dont'sic really know where.
Where Are You? Edit
Found in Richard's facility.
To: Pavel Kynos
From: Annika Chandler
Jan told me what happened. You lost all our money trying to buy those fake permits. He said you were ashamed. That you could no longer face me after being taken in by those horrible scam artists. But you have no reason to be ashamed! You are so much better than the rest of the world. You are vulnerable and gullible, yes... but I love you for it!
Orlov's Child Edit
Carried by Daria during the side mission The Last Harvest.
They say it's the memories. They say I'm responsible.
The problem is, I don't believe you're him. I don't think you believe it either. You are so much colder, so much more dangerous. Marek Svobotka killed out of fear, but you... nothing corners you. Besides, the tools you've been using make it impossible to reconcile his ideology with your techniques.
You are Orlov's child, not mine. I should never have turned you over to him. For that - and that alone - I am sorry.
