Story - Letters to a Doctor, a Detective and a General

Game Date: 8/24/2006
Location: San Francisco, California

Who: Prime

Dr. Kensington,

This letter is to request your assistance in investigating and analyzing a cloaked vessel that has landed in San Francisco.

In early May, an energy source very similar to a cosmic crystal was detected in the ballpark district. The slight difference in readings could be explained by someone trying to shield a cosmic crystal from detection. When the Wardens investigated the location using backpack scanners, they narrowed it down to several old abandoned buildings that were being demolished located down the road from PacCom Ballpark. I was not available at the time of this investigation.

However, after the suspected alien shapeshifter known as 'Johan Doyle' was kidnapped, I joined the rest of the Wardens in visiting the spot where 'Johan Doyle' awoke after his kidnapping. Using my paranormal perception, I was able to detect a cloaked vessel there. The ship appears to have warped space around itself, thus being invisible and intangible to normal perception. Exact coordinates of the 'gateway' that once opened could be used to enter the vessel is attached.

The Wardens will be setting up scanners to monitor the vessel. Trying to 'force open' the vessel's door may be dangerous, so we decided to await the gathering of more information. The exact nature of the vessel and its occupations are currently unknown.

In regards to the individual who was kidnapped, I can only provide the following. We originally encountered him in an alternate dimension where massive war had devastated much of the world. His original form was much like my own, only of a black hue. He has displayed the ability to project blasts of cosmic energy, teleport, and shapeshift. His current research appears to be regarding the alien artifacts known as 'cosmic crystals.' These crystals are immensely powerful and have demonstrated the ability to power energy weapons, robots, and devices for opening dimensional rifts. It appears they may also contain fragments of an energy-based alien life form with the ability to influence minds. Other than the crystals, the only known source of cosmic energy at this time would be the kidnap victim. His body appears to possess the ability to absorb energy and convert it into cosmic energy. I once possessed a similar ability but lost it as a result of an experiment.

The Knight, as head of base security, has seized sole custody of all the known recovered fragments of cosmic crystal. However when we visited the crash site in the Amazon, the crystals were found in the remains of an unidentified object that fell from orbit, it appears that a large number of crystals had already been taken. Our best guess at the moment is that they are in the hands of the Grand Empire. We also discovered that Professor Herbert had mysteriously disappeared, presumed kidnapped by the Grand Empire. I believe the Knight has already recruited you to assist in the crystals' analysis.

As far as my own origins. I was a fully human lab assistant, Johan Doyle, back on July 11, 2004. A UPS delivery man dropped off a package containing a cosmic crystal at Professor Herbert's office at the college. I planned to test the crystal on a plant sample. I plugged the crystal into the power cell box on the Herbert Device. It fit perfectly. I flipped the switch and watched the power level indicator register full power. Then an alarm sounded. Apparently, there was an explosion and I was hurled into an alternate realty where the world had been devastated by a horrible war. I was also given paranormal powers and my current form. The dimensional rift also swept up the Wardens shortly afterwards. My best guess at what happened is that Professor Herbert's theories and device failed to take into account the reality destabilizing effects of cosmic energy.

In that alternative realty, we found the reserve generator that Void had stolen from the FSS Paranormal Detention Facility in San Francisco. The kidnap victim, still in his 'Black Prime' shape, teleported next to the generator just as it was activated. This somehow resulted in our being transported back to this dimension.

Your Fellow Explorer in Science,
Prime

Detective Carson,

This is a short letter to keep you informed of our investigation.

We will be setting up scanners to monitor the vessel. Trying to 'force open' the vessel's door may be dangerous, so we decided to await the gathering of more information. Since the exact nature of the vessel and its occupations are currently unknown, I would advise limiting civilian access to the area as much as possible.
