Wardens Fourth Edition
Jeers to Robot Joe... Uh, Ted - Downtime
A look at what happened after Session 39.
Area and Group Notes
A Lost Brother and Lost Memories
Eon (Lazarus), Indigo
The Knight, Amethyst and Karex investigate the pipe and where it leads with ground penetrating radar. They are able to trace the pipe to an old waster processing facility. It is found to be an overflow that was thought sealed. Once reported, the authorities assure the team that they will take care of it.
Wardens in Training?
Amethyst (II), Eon (Lazarus), Knight of Saint Michael, Jaxton Gray and Thunder
Delta-Vee sends Amethyst and the Knight a note via Adam indicating that he is following up on a strong lead involving Boost's disappearance. He has arranged to check in on a regular basis with Adam and will keep his communicator with him at all times in case of emergency.
Dr. Miller sends a report to the Wardens with the final analysis of the chemicals and fish from the drainpipe incident. The report is from a special environmental science lab at UC-Berkeley that has done a complete analysis of the samples at her request. They found that the retrovirus was designed using plants cells and DNA. Even with the chemical contaminants present in the samples, there was less than a one percent chance of it interacting with cetacean DNA. The report's conclusion is that based on the samples received the retrovirus is not the cause of the dolphins' mutation. There is one caveat in the report's conclusion, indicating that without a sample of the mutant dolphins' DNA it is not possible to be completely sure that the retrovirus was not the cause of the mutations.
Oakland Police report a couple of incidents where rival gang members committing crimes in the O-town Boys recently cleaned up territory are found tied up with evidence of their crimes and ready for pickup when the police arrive. Eyewitness reports and questioning of the gang members indicate that the paranormal known as 'Blue Boy' by the FSS is responsible. The residents of the area are very happy that 'Blue Boy' seems to have adopted their neighborhood.
Karalyn Nicholas, a.k.a. Amethyst (II)
Karalyn continues to teach sign language classes and work at the legal clinic at the community center. Kimberly continues to help with the sign language classes. Tommy continues to attend her classes and hanging around the legal clinic when Karalyn is working there.
Karalyn is contacted by Ashley Morse about administering a trust for Alta Verde that would be setup to offer funding for services similar to her Green Valley Trust. Morse would like to setup a meeting to discuss the matter further.
Judah Ambrose, a.k.a. Eon (Lazarus)
Searches for news items on crystals turns up an article on optical computing. The article details how several researchers in the field are using crystals for holographic data storage. An unnamed source indicates that crystal architecture systems are the future as crystals could be engineered to store power as well as data.
Searches for aliases, past and present, turns up an article on an archaeological dig in Syria. Some documents, which appear to be the personal correspondence of a Roman provincial governor and his descendants, dating from the period 110-200 A.D. are being analyzed. Gideon Valerian is mentioned as an advisor of the governor several times in the early letters and then again as an advisor of the governor's great grandson in some of the later letters. Scholars are arguing about the authenticity of the letters, as they seem to indicate that the Gideon Valerian referred to by both the governor and his great grandson is the same man, which would make the man well over 100 years old in the later letters.
Marsa Stilhanov, a.k.a. Indigo
Armstrong Moorland leaves a message that he would like Indigo to meet with an associate of his when she is back at the base. The associate may be able to provide some information on the demonhound and his master.
Karex speaks to his legal firm, Jared and Morton, regarding setting up a Yrician Embassy and a corporation to support the Embassy's operations. They advise that they will get the process started for both requests.
Jared and Morton contact Karex and inform him that the request to open a diplomatic mission has been filed with the United States State Department. They also tell him that the incorporation documents for Karex Corporation have been filed with the State of California.
William Rouen, a.k.a. Knight of Saint Michael
The Knight continues his study of the sciences with Johan Doyle. Doyle takes a less active role by recommending articles, books and other documents that the Knight might want to study to help with his education. Doyle does dedicate time once a week to meet with the Knight to answer questions, discussion items of interest and make new recommendations for study.
The Knight does some research on foreign diplomats, diplomatic license and the conventions that govern their rights and responsibilities. He also does some checks on Karex's diplomatic classification as he is the first alien diplomat. The Knight finds that Karex has no official legal status and is currently under the jurisdiction of the FSS rather than the State Department. The FSS has Karex classified as an unknown paranormal under the supervision of the Radley-Gold Act group, the Wardens, as a probationary member.
Johan Doyle provides a report on possible bio-ceramic entity cosmic energy signatures. The report shows trace signatures near the community center and Karalyn Nicolas' apartment as well as tracking between those two locations. There are also one or two traces in various places around the city showing no identifiable pattern.
A check on Paul Stevens, the inventor of Robot Ted, finds that he spends several days at FSS Western Region headquarters being interviewed and helping their technicians try to determine why the animatronic went rogue.
Rowena has lunch with the Knight and they discuss the FSS's examination of Robot Ted. Their investigation has turned up little as the animatronic's 'brain' and main control systems were badly damaged by Amethyst and the Knight's attacks then totally ruined by Karex's water blast. Rowena also brings up the possibility of her being paid as a contract analyst for the information that she has been providing the Knight.
Freddie reports to the Knight on setting up the sensor net to track the signals that Dr. Kensington had identified as being associated with Prime's disappearance. There has been no activity for that signal range since the sensors have been recalibrated but there have been several instances where cosmic energy signals that match Prime's signature from before the dimensional pinhole lab accident have been recorded. The appearance of the signals has no discernable pattern.
Caitlyn Danielson, a.k.a. Psyche
Psyche spends time working with Mei Lynn on using her psychokinetic abilities. Psyche also gives the other young trainees some experience in dealing with a paranormal adversary.
