87) Through Movie Forensic Science, tracing soil from the bottom of the case, some pollen, maybe some mold under the foamy rubber stuff that held the goop, and one piece of follage that fell into its, you were able to determine the region where the bio hazard case came from.

The Goop? It isn't the weapon, it is the super growth medium that would let you breed a weapon easily. (okay, it is something that would let you culture genetically engineered material quickly.) So there is a hidden high tech facility in that region that the Secret Organization that Knox is infiltrating has.

Find it, investigate what it does, report back... because it is a bio facility, blowing it up would be extremely bad.

Well at least we get to go back to a beautiful pacific island...

(which suprisingly enough is very crowded, very polluted, and has crappy beaches... oh and the tropical jungle stuff? Up what passes for a mountain. )

But you do finally get to local a "secret underground lair" (Built into an old mine). Of course infiltrating said underground base might be harder than expected, but if you can get an old map... you might be able to find a way... that would require some digging....

Okay, three of these for today...

88) You can assault the lab (which isn't nearly as cool as you were hoping for... No Bond Villlain Lair) and see this playing or you can roll a couple of their people (in which this will be on a phone)

Somehow you get this one piece of video

"The Council has decided there are too many people in the world. There is too little food, too few resources, and too many byproducts of civilization like pollution and waste heat. To preserve Humanity, The Council has stockpiled materials and people of good genetic stock, in caches around the world. Now in phase III, The Council is going to help Bulk of Humanity kill itself off, by helping terrorists make bioweapons (and wmd) and create as much chaos as possible to destabilize infrastructure of the Greedy Purvayors of The Exploitive Status Quo. From the Ashes, we will rise. The Pheonix People will rise.

Your work is valuable to save Humanity. Thank you."

Get this to control and the responses will be varied. Crack Pots? Geniuses?

The insanity of the plan is inconsequential, they can actually pull it off. They have been pulling it off pretty successfully.

The question is... can we stop them? Can we stop them without sacrificing humanity if we screw up?

An idea I've always wanted to run: The world's greatest superspy is dead, and his many illegitimate children are being targeted as well! Some are already dead, the PCs are some of the survivors. They've inherited different aspects of their father's legacy and gained additional skills from their backgrounds or further training. Some are already agents, some are forcibly recruited/"rescued" as part of uncovering the plot.

89) The chatter intercepted by Control points your team towards Sydney. Your team is acting independent of Aussie Security and Intelligence (though still friendly via back end liasons). Control is giving you leads about who has acquirred both biologic stock and tools.... that when utilizing the goop... can be used to make a great deal of weaponized virus.

Your job is to find that group then back track the trail of the goop. Find out who delivered it and how it got there. (Oh yes, report back when you find the group and possibly where it is being built so we can save the lives of everyone in Sydney, possibly Austalia and maybe the world. ) If you have leads you can not follow up, suspects will be scooped by Aussie Intellligence and debriefed/ interogated.


Choose the enemy you want... it could even be ecoterrorists.

Or it could just be some strange academics and students.

and there could be links or images that bring you back to this.....

and google the Georgia Guidestones and do the search.

88b) You might spend some time with the forensics team, going over what is left after someone hit the self destruct button. You will have someone spying on you. Perhaps you can find out who and who put them up to them. This could lead to a tie to the organization.

But then 89 comes up fast.

90) After some crash courses from CDC and Military's BioTech division, you are set on the next trail. Some goop was brought in via a small fishing port in Alaska. If you investigate the timing, the only appropriate cargo was a set of drums loaded on a truck. Drums - 50 gallon drums. You hope the goop is hidden in the fuel oil and there isn't 330 gallons of this stuff heading to the US. It has a couple of days head start.

You need to find this truck.. in the winter months... during a storm... Come on.. you have seen Ice Road Truckers. In Canada (or pick a good point), they are supposed disperse the drums to various other trucks (and one U-Haul rented in Anchorage). From there, they will go to a number of places in North America. Oh and they and several cars/trucks moving around them as support are gonig to be armed to the teeth.

One truck got its load before you get there, that U-Haul is going towards Idaho.

If you managed to capture the trucks, each one has a 10 gallon container of goop in it. The CDC can use this stuff just as easily to make antidotes... once they get it in place and get it figured out.

*************************

91) You can follow the trail after they got through the US/Canadian Border. The border stopped a U-Haul with its plates, but the VIN number does not match. You can trace the switched plates that went through just before the stopped U-Haul. (Sorry Mr. and Mrs. Singh, we thought you were terrorists carrying bio weapons... oh yah, that is going to go over well.)

The truck will make it to northern Idaho and a compound of a local isolationist militia styled group. Who knows what these heavily armed, mildly crazy, psuedo-christian military cult is going to do with it.

But the compound might have a "lab" set up under the communal kitchen. However, there are agro-companies (the highest security companies in the world) without this level of security. This is not your normal wooden building kind of crazy compound. It is more like the armored glass and steel kind of crazy compound.

The leader is a charismatic religious leader - Zachary Willow, flanked by several military types and one scary science type. One of the several overly rich members of "The Church of Higher Calling" is also one of the inner circle.

92) The Media is all over this one. There are wayyyy too many domestic cameras and reporters in the aftermath of your incursion to the compound (and the cluster event of the ATF and National Guard cleaning up). Several other agent teams have gotten lucky and intercepted goop shipments or blown up labs awaiting said goop. The CDC's little known "alternate lab" is prepped with goop and learning how to synthesize more... to create counter agents quickly, should a bio weapon be used.

If you can risk it, you need to make sure that no one gets ahold of information on how far ranging the bio threat is. This could be reporters, but you mission includes FBI, ATF, National Guard, NSA, and "non-cleared" CDC Members. Cleared CDC... those from the alternate lab i.e. the Military Bioweapon Unit... will assist. You really hate these people, as they are basically flouting international law dealing with bioweapons... all on the down low.

93) There has been a mass outbreak on a ship of a resistant strain of an serious flu on an Asian Cargo vessel (H5N1?). You are to be inserted with the CDC team. You are looking for a bioweapon or a connection from someone on the ship to be connected. It might be a natural outbreak of a potential plague or a weaponized flu that got out early. Oh and you need to adopt a few samples for the Alternate Lab.

NOTE: There is a big push this year across the globe for flu vaccines... if not several of them... as the government sources are all stating that this year could be a near lethal pandemic. The vaccines - there are two, then three of them - will cover most strains out there and might include other diseases that could be adapted or weaponized. Under the guise of the flu shot programs, they are trying to prepare us for potential bio attacks. The only way they could make this much specialty vaccine is by using Goop to make the vaccine seeders.

94) Since several intelligence agencies in the Pacific theatre are looking for you, Control is giving you a simple mission in Columbia. There seems to be a problem with coca crops. While nobody is shedding tears for the poor narco-lords, they and their minions are beginning to fight it out over the producing plants. Innocents are casually being caught in the cross fire.

Your actual mission is to get to as many sick plants as possible. Yes this means infiltrating a number of heavily guarded plantations, full of coked up para-militaries. You need to get samples back to the science types you are going to be covertly escorting (As the Film Crew?). They need to determine if this is a natural disease or a weaponized plant disease. They will also be looking for markers if this was created with blue goop. If someone wanted to destabilize this section of the world and create chaos across the globe... making the organized crime drug trade implode might do it.

If you as a GM don't like Central America, you can always make the Poppy crop wilting and do this is Asia. Heck, in a few months of game time, do this as 94b. CAnibus Blight will occur as well, providing a domestic issue 94c. (Strangely enough, only high yield HTC plants are targetted. So far low yield plants are immune. If you haven't figure these were human designer blights by now, there is the big clue.

94d) A new organization is supplying synthetic drugs that replace the ones that are now obscenely expensive due to the increasing crop loss. The products are fairly cheap and sold to the normal "retailers" and "wholesalers" of drugs. They are making a boatload of money and those people who do not go along with them are simply cut out of the drug loop. While several organizations are trying to make their own synthetic drugs, these people are first to the market and have a large supply of it... if not a stockpile. It is almost as if they knew the crops were going to fail.

Your mission is to infiltrate the new organization without getting caught and see if it is linked to the organization that Knox is infiltrating.

95) You are back in the states at home or safe houses. Control is working on next moves, sifting through all the data. While watching some TV, you catch the news. There was a large gas main explosion at State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, augmented by trapped gas under a new hypercomposting project (which had a methane tap to produce natural gas). The resulting explosion, fire, and general disaster has generated a large loss of life and property at the schools and the city of Albany. Some of your leads from 94 would lead you towards Albany NY and could be University at Albany, SUNY. If you see some of the Cable News on the disaster, you noticed Knox in the background.

Not long after, perhaps when you are all discussing this... you get "the call" for a mission brief.

Your mission is to find all the survivors of the explosion that have ties to the various schools.. track down anyone who might of escaped...might be missing. You need to confirm a few people as dead (including some guy in the philosophy department ... who if the report is to be believed was over in this other college..) You need to generate this list quietly. You need to do the follow up quietly, locating and some initial tracking. Your cover is local law enforcement and FBI. So keeping your cover among the law enforcement and FBI might be the hardest part of the mission. Especially since Homeland Security is crawling about

Why you ask? We are assisting an ongoing investigation for a sister department. Or Not on your paygrade. (However, if you think about it....)

If you investigate the site, you will discover that the public disclosure does not match reality. There are bomb pieces being collectied.

Dang. That story arc has been going on since entry 55) Except for three posts, really they are all part of the same "campaign arc". Cypress was the group choosen. The Film Crew Option for the campaign could be deleted.

It is mostly over. The bad organization will continue on, just crippled. So it will be a while before it becomes a real threat. You all made it possible (and made Knox's mission possible). It will take years for you get all the pieces together and know everything that will go on.

96) So We flash foreward 10-15 years

Imagine your team with more experience, 10-15 years of hard spying life. Where would your character be? With the agency? In Control? On a beach somewhere trying to forget it all.

Knox contacts you. He pulls you and your team together. A Cypress cell is going to try one massive attack against New York City, while world leaders are signing a trade accord at the UN. Nobody believes him. Do you? Can you afford not to? Can you all pull it together for one last harrah and is Knox being straight with you.
