    Missable Achievement

    This achievement can be earned via the main quest "Foundation", however whether this mission is available to you depends on how you handle the Emerald Vale power crisis near the beginning of the game.

    Here's how I did it:
    * Redirected the power back to Edgewater.
    * Convinced Reed to step-down and for Adelaide to take over as leader of Edgewater. (Comes Now The Power)
    * Get the NavKey to Monarch (Passage to Anywhere)
    * Learn the location of the chemicals (Radio Free Monarch)
    * Steal the chemicals for Phineas (The City and the Stars)
    * Plant tracking signal for Sophia (Long Distance)
    * Meet with Sophia and agree to sort out Edgewater (Long Distance)

    This should give you the mission "Foundation".

    I believe there are multiple possible options that can differ from the above that you could take and still give you the mission. Turning in Phineas at the start of the game may short cut the time it takes. Although I haven't tried this myself.

    Ninjaneer360 Is it possible to get this achievement while playing an anti-Board character, I.e. siding with Phineas the whole time?

    緑眼のイアン I can confirm that you can (I got the Foundation mission with 100% negative reputation with the board). After you get the Dimethyl Sulfoxide in the main quest The City and the Stars, you'll be contacted by Adjutant Sophia Akande with an offer to betray Welles. I told him about it and he insisted that I plant the tracking signal but corrupt it (you have the option to plant it normally or plant and corrupt it).

    I corrupted it, and then once returning to the Unreliable Akande contacted me again asking to meet in Byzantium, unaware of the deception. Once there she asks you to side with her and destroy Edgewater. I just made a save before the conversation and then reverted after.

    Fightclxb Looks like this was patched and you now must complete the quest "Foundation" up to and including destroying the automechanicals in Edgewater to receive the achievement, rather than just starting the quest.
